I tried to book a room hours after losing my mum to cancer. I was treated terribly- as if I was a prostitute. Being told ‘this isn’t the kind of hotel for you’ I have stayed in this hotel for my husbands birthday- which I...told the receptionist- but still was treated disgusting. After being insulted- a small ‘security man’ placed his hands on me…. I have never been so insulted in all of my life- let alone at a most painful time in my life when all I was seeking was a place to stay where I was familiar with. Avoid this hotel if you want a human touch. This hotel is purely about money. Not people.More

Very disappointing. First of all it would be important to inform the clients that tables are maximum for 4 ppl. If you are more than four you will be separated if you want to enjoy the virtual show. Unacceptable especially if you are a family...with kids because the family will be split. Secondly the level of service is very poor and the personnel is clearly non trained for a supposed high-level restaurant. During the waiting time for the preparation of the table, the personnel offers you a cocktail (nobody told us what it was, and I have assumed that it was a Spritz, but not sure! Nothing have been offered to our 3 kids) and some appetizers. They put everything on the desk at the entrance and don’t go through the various clients. Food quality is medium-high, but clearly no wow. Wine pairing is a nightmare. The wine chosen for every dish is simply horrible..Unacceptable for Europeans! Please allow clients to chose a bottle of wine or to pay more to have better quality. At last, we wait 10 minutes (!!!) in a queue to have the elevator and go out…we were waiting for a lady from the restaurant with a badge which allows to call the elevator. Crazy! Animation and virtual show was funny. At the end the price is too high for what you get. And giving a French sounding name to the restaurant will not improve the quality.More

We went to the Le Petit Chef experience last night and we had an amazing time. It was fun and entertaining and the food was delicious! It was a four course meal with wine pairings. Here’s our thoughts about the food: First course - burrata...is 9/10 for us. Burrata is very fresh as well as the tomatoes and berries. Caviar is al so very good. Took off a point because the caviar tasted a little lemony for us. Would have loved it with a hint of lemon but not too much lemon. Second course - lobster risotto is 9/10. The risotto was perfect. Lobster was veeery good. The cheese crisp - I could eat all day. Took off a point because again there was a heavy lemon taste somewhere in the dish. Main Entree - beef was 10/10. You don’t need a knife for the beef - it’s that tender! The mashed potato is super smooth. The juice is a little too rosemary-ey for us but it’s my personal taste. Dessert - was out of this world!! 10/100!!! Loved it and would come back for the dessert! We had Steven as our server and he was attentive and was on top of things. He made sure that pur experience is perfect. Antonio and Crystal are also wonderful. Both helped out during dinner and saw them both making sure that everyone’s needs are being met.More

Service was good for Le Petit Chef pop up 'experience' at The Views Marriott Marquis, the view from the top floor is very nice, the food and wine were terrible, no redeeming factors at all. It is a set menu with no choice and wine...pairing. The mini burger offered for the arrival cocktail was about the best of the entire meal. The starter of buratta, was dry and not creamy, the lobster risotto was downright awful and the lobster had a very strong taste, the main course of beef was another let down. Even the matcha chocolate desert was awful. The animation is interesting and fun for a bit, but that doesn't compensate nor justify a $500 price tag for 2 people, one who was underage so wasn't drinking. I didnt manage to finish one glass of wine, it was all resoundingly dreadful. Would not recommend.More

This restaurant was at the top of our list when traveling to New York City for the first time. The staff was very friendly and gave us directions how to get there without a problem. The restaurant is up top of the hotel and you...have take the elevators and they specifically say “The View” that comes out at your destination which is pretty cool. The food is delicious and it’s a buffet style establishment so you pay the price of $42 and not including the drinks you recieve which is seprate. The full rotation of the restaurant takes one hour and a half to see all of New York. Very romantic dinner for you and your partner or can be for your family too.More

We were fortunate enough to pop in and get a window seat table immediately (we attended at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic). View was amazing, and the revolving bar is a novelty. However, it cannot be overlooked that this circular bar is set inside...a square building and therefore there are obstructions to the view. Still, it was a fun way to spot all the landmark buildings and the napkins printed with the skyline help to identify them. The only downside was this hour long experience was very pricey. There is a cover charge of $8 pp for non residents, for the sheer privilege of being admitted. We had 2 drinks each (just the two of us) and with tax and customary tip, our bill was just shy of $150. Nice for a one off experience.More

Lovely views of NYC and great drinks, but I left feeling disappointed by the service. Me and two other companions came here on Saturday during our visit from the UK. It does take a while to get service. I was told to hand over my...credit card and a charge for a round of drinks was made. I enquired about this as I’d prefer to pay in cash. However, I was told this was just a ‘hold charge’ and would be put back onto my account. Anyway, we left and paid our full bill in cash, yet this hold charge is still appearing on my card and the bank has confirmed that it’s been taken from my account. Terrible service as I don’t appreciate being lied to, and I’m now seeking for this to be put right by The View!More
