The seasonal popsicle "poptails' were a big hit with my friend and me. It was a hot day, so the strawberry mint popsicles dunked in Prosecco were a welcome cool down. The view from the roof garden of Central Park and the city are incredible....More

Visited after seeing the Met museum's marvellous rock 'n' roll exhibition. A lovely sunny day and glorious views over Manhattan. BUT... those prices! 11 dollars (£8.80, you Brits) for a can of lager in a plastic cup? Crazy. 15 dollars for a tiny glass of...More

As a viewing area it's superb, as a restaurant it's awful. I understand paying $12 for a sandwich in a place like this - but when you're making this kind of profit margin you should at least provide a decent sandwich - it's not that...More

Hi. I don't think you can make reservations. Also believe it is not always open at this time of the year. Weather dependant. Merry Christmas.
