Staten Island Restaurant Recommendations

I'd like to take the Staten Island Ferry over to Staten Island and have a nice dinner on Friday night. Any recommendations near the ferry (or relatively near the ferry by bus or taxi) would be very much appreciated.

I don't think there is anything anywhere NEAR the ferry terminal that you would want to walk to to have dinner. That area is deserted at night, and I would not want to walk around that area at ALL at night.

I would suggest getting on the ferry taking it over and back and have a nice dinner in Manhattan, like Fraunces Tavern, a close walk from the Ferry terminal.

Have a wonderful time.

I'm willing to take a bus or taxi somewhere -- are there taxis waiting?

gold75, SI is mostly densely populated suburban environment. You're not in the city anymore. Doubt there'd be taxis at the ferry terminal.

Anybody from SI have a suggestion?

ACtually there are buses and taxis at the Ferry terminal. YOu might do a google search for restaurants on Staten Island, but again you are probably better off coming back to Manhattan for a nice dinner.

You might consider going to the Parsonage which is a very nice restaurant close to Richmond Town, which is a well known restoration on the island.

You can get a taxi from the Ferry Terminal and arrange to have the taxi pick you up after dinner. Reservations are requested, so you might call.

Taking a cab from the terminal you will also get a nice tour of the island.

I just did a google search of Restaurants on Staten Island, NY and got alot of info.

Hope this helps, have a fun time in NYC.

Born and raised on Staten Island. Never had a really "fine" dining experience like you'll find in Manhattan but I love King's Pizza on 2212 Victory Blvd. They have two sections, one with pizza and then a smaller restaurant section that is only open at night that is truly great. I had the most delicious bruschetta there with gorgonzola and honey. Yummy. Plus great veal dishes. Here's the number: 718-494-0890. And the personal pizzas are great. Then there's West Shore Inn which is kind of a bar/restaurant full of locals. Yummy mussels and other Italian faves. They are at 3955 Victory Blvd. 718-698-9722. Also Denino's which I think is on Richmond Ave. right across from Ralph's, the great Italian ice ever! Just remember, these are kind of local family type restaurants and not an "experience" if you know what I mean.

Just a quick question: Why do you want to do this? Just looking for something "different" to do? I personally would suggest taking the ferry there/back and having din-din in Manhattan on the water...perhaps... somebody help me here -- that restaurant next to BPC with the outdoor seating????????

With thousands of world-class restaurants in Manhattan, going to Staten Island for dinner is like going to Port Authority instead of MoMa to see contemporary art.
