The Boathouse Restaurant is located in the center of Central Park, New York city. It is just a short stroll from Firth Avenue and 72nd Street and is the only lakeside Manhattan dining choice. View the rowboats and gondolas, rock formations, formal gardens and fountains in the foreground, framed by trees and skyscrapers in the background. The restaurant is a perfect place for your next special event. We love to host weddings and receptions, or smaller more intimate special moments. We can accommodate up to 500 people in our Pavilion or host your smaller private event on the restaurant dock or indoor dockside dining room.
