I was so excited to give this place a try so we went for my Bday. I couldn't decide what to order so our waitress said the duck was the best so I ordered it. When the plate came out I was shocked to see my mashed potatoes swimming in blood from the duck! Disgusting! When the waitress came back... More

Walleye was a wee bit undercooked, and the steak was close to what was expected. Found the potato puree unappetizing, but tasty...what potato doesn't taste good overwhelmed with butter. *Sorry heart.* The view and the ambience excellent. What Minnesota42 said is true, it's a special occasion destination. Service excellent. Lotta interesting people circling the wagons looking for where their table... More

We had dinner in this restaurant. Food was wonderful - although Caesar Salad was a little blah. We had the duck breast & filet mignon & both were cooked perfectly. Enjoyed the revolving restaurant & the ability to see the lights of the city.

We loved the Top of the Harbor Restaurant, which is now JJ Astor. The view is wonderful. We were there for dinner. The food is pricey, but the steaks that we had were wonderful. The service was great. I would say that the pricing makes it a now special occasion destination, not the let's eat every time we are in... More

We were at the hotel for a wedding reception, and decided to go to the famous revolving restaurant for a drink. Of course, the view is spectacular, even from the bar (which does not revolve) and the atmosphere is sophisticated but not snooty (there was a live sax player there that night). The bartender, Donald, was top-notch and was deftly... More

We had coupons for a free breakfast, which made this an easy choice. JJ Astors is on the top floor of the Radisson and revolves, so had great views. The restaurant was super clean and nicely appointed. The staff was friendly and our waitress outstanding. Breakfast was very enjoyable with fresh ingredients and everything done to perfection.

Over priced for quality of food. Food was adequate and service was slow. We had a party of 11 and at least half were not pleased with the quality of their selection (salty, overcooked......some of comments)

We ate the pork tenderloin. It was on the expensive side, but the food was excellent. The wait staff was great and waited on us promptly. We enjoyed watching the city and the lake with the night lights as the restaurant revolved. The hostess was obviously stressed, as she was very abrupt and rude. But, all-in-all it was a good...
