Romantic Dinner Cruises in New York

One of the best things to do is to take your partner on a dinner cruise. You can enjoy each other’s company and the beautiful views of New York City. There is good food and drinks too! The Valentine’s Day Dinner Cruise is the perfect option for Valentine’s Day itself. For any other occasion, I’d choose the Bateaux Dinner Cruise which is one of the most beautiful boats. But this romantic dinner cruise is a great alternative.

A great place to go to impress your partner is the restaurant Gigino in Wagner Park close to Battery Park overlooking the Hudson River. It’s an Italian restaurant with a great view of the Statue of Liberty with very friendly staff. If you want something a little different to the menu, feel free to ask as the chef is very accommodating.

Peak NYC

Right above Edge observation deck in the 30 Hudson Yards building, you find Peak, a 930 square meter à la carte restaurant with the best views of West Manhattan and a menu that caters to everyone. When the sky turns black and the thousands of lights below you start to shine, Peak is the perfect background for a romantic evening in New York.


Balthazar on Spring Street is always a great restaurant to go to. There is a pretty good chance of celebrity sighting too, and despite the busy French bistro feel, it is still cozy and romantic. The food makes the pricey menu worth it. This is definitely a restaurant for Valentine’s Day for a younger crowd.

Daniel Boulud

Daniel Boulud is also another great chef with many top restaurants in New York. Daniel on East 65th Street is the best. If you want to go all out to impress your date, then this is the place in New York to take them to. With the most impressive decor in a classy restaurant, the French food will blow you away, but only if you can afford it.


When you want to do romantic in a casual way, there is a small but charming restaurant in the Upper East Side called August. The food is definitely good, but most people go there for the chic atmosphere. The restaurant offers pan-European cuisine with a romantic garden and wood-fired oven which certainly sets the right mood.
