My roommate and I share the same birthday, so we decided to treat ourselves by going with two other girlfriends to Battery Gardens, and I can safely say this was the best birthday dinner I've ever had. The food was absolutely phenomenal; every bite was perfect. The service was fast but not overbearing; they brought out appetizers and entrees swiftly but gave us plenty of time to linger over our meals. In addition, the decor is lovely, and the view is unbelievable.\r
But what really rounded out the night was our service, which was impeccable. For whatever reason, and I don't think it was just the birthdays, the wait staff bent over backwards to make our evening perfect. In the end, all four of us got two rounds of drinks for free (including a delicious grappa) and my roommate and I also got our desserts gratis. AND some of the servers came over to sing happy birthday. It was amazing. While I doubt they do this every day, the wait staff was so wonderful I didn't need to get the special treatment to have a fantastic evening.\r
We had such a lovely time that we promised our waiter and the bartender that we would be back for happy hour - and we most definitely will. Highly, highly recommended.
Pros: amazing view, unbelievable view, wondeful service
