Where To Dine With a View on the Upper West Side

Here on the scenic Upper West Side, we have no shortage of amazing views to choose from. Of course, there’s no better time to enjoy a beautiful view than with a delicious meal, so our many top-notch restaurants here in town have worked to pair the two at their dining areas.

If you’re looking for a meal with a great view, then you don’t have to look much further than your Sagamore neighborhood – check out these nearby restaurants to get that ‘Wow’ factor for your next bite.

PIER i CAFÉ, located at W 68th Street and Riverside Blvd. which is a five minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a casual American eatery with scenic views which is open May to mid-October in Riverside Park South.

Come and enjoy an informal style of dining instead of table service since PIER i CAFÉ offers an easy ordering system so you and your guests can retrieve food and beverages at your leisure. Plus, you can always expect high quality, fresh food. 

Ellington in the Park, located at Riverside Dr. and W 105th St. which is a seven minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a hidden treasure for those who are ready to make the most of the warm weather and are willing to venture out of the usual spots.

When the sun sets over the Hudson River, the beach-themed restaurant becomes a trendy yet casual scene fueled by drinks, live music, big screen TVs, and fresh food by chef John Loughran of Banc Café.
