We went for a drink, ordered a bottle of rosewine and some tortillachips. The chips, were supricely poor, but the service beats all. The girl that served our table, medium age, tall, blond, was so caring and friendly. Because of her, we will come back.

I come here every time I visit New York and always find the food 1st class no matter what is ordered. The service is good although if you hit peak eating times be prepared to wait a bit although for me there is so much going on that I love people watching. Highly recommended.

I can understand why some people may say it is pricey - at $21 (£13) for a burger, and $23 (£14) for a salad, it is not cheap, but as a Brit, I know in central London that the price for this in a similar location would be at least $35 - $40 (£20 - £25). It was fantastic to... More

Great food. Exceptional service. Been many times & always loved it especially the burgers. View on the plaza & rink is a nice touch too.

We were able to see a little bit of the Today show being filmed; we were able to meet a friend from the Upper West Side - so it was convenient for all of us; the waitress graciously took pictures and the food was delicious..

We came here after an early morning visit to the Top of the Rock. Proved an excellent choice though portions are huge and you won't need/want to eat again for quite some time. My wife chose the "Strawberry and Whipped Mascarpone French Toast" and was delighted with it. However, be warned that the toast is some 1" thick. fried brioche... More

The brunch menu is very limited. I Poor options. Had the American breakfast and all food was cooked, but bland. Not enough staff for the amount of people. Not worth the price of the overpriced food. I know you are paying for the location, however food should be better quality.
