According to the reviewer:
... If you're planning a romantic date, Trellis Restaurant is a fantastic choice for this, think about it - A decent restaurant in a cozy neighborhood, take her for a quiet walk in the park afterwards or better yet, alongside the East River walkway and savor the lovely skyline of Manhattan or the cruise ships that pass. Trellis Restaurant stands out for these types of occasions because it is backed by its uniquely secluded Roosevelt Island setting...
The writer is a monthly visitor with his family and concludes:
... Trellis Restaurant is one of the highlights on Roosevelt Island. Much like the local community of Roosevelt Island itself, it's nothing spectacular but it's small and sweet. Trellis Restaurant a basic diner with a friendly staff and a unique cozy setting...
After that romantic Trellis experience and waterfront stroll, remember the Roosevelt Island Tram was named the second most romantic place in New York City.

Some of the dinner cruise boats go by.

Or those obnoxiously loud party boats in the summer. When those pass by it's like having my stereo all turned up to maximum volume even though I am already 20 floors up high.
