“Worth every penny”
Review of The View

The View
Attraction details
Reviewed February 2, 2013

You may look at the menu and think the price of the drinks are a little on the high side - cocktails $16, glass of wine $13 but I look at it like this. If you are prepared to pay for an experience like a trip to the top of the Empire State building, you pay for it and that is all you get,

What you get included in the cost of your drink at The View is a fantastic vista, good quality drinks, good service and if you want to eat the option of a decent buffet.

Get there an hour before sunset ( opens at 4pm at the moment) have a couple of drinks and relax

We went to the View early evening for cocktails....we had been told it can get very busy and may have to queue but we went straight in.
Cocktails were delicious but expensive...their signature cocktail is $19.
Service was very good.
It took about an hour to completely revolve, views are good and we got some nice night photos.
The corners of the building made it a bit difficult for photos but all-in-all a great experience.

I was invited to be part of the audience for "The View" this summer and was very excited to learn that my favs. Elisabeth, Sherry, and Whoopi were there and to top it all off, Regis Philbin was a special guest.Please remember that the tickets to this show are FREE. Therefore treat the staff with respect and please have patience as there is a lot of waiting.Overall good experience.Expect a long wait outdoors, followed by a long wait indoors with no place to sit. Once seated and inside the studio you can expect filming to take up to 90 minutes. To give you an idea of the time you should allow, I got there at 10:15 am and was not out of the studio until shortly after 2pm. If you keep your itinerary open this is the best way to take in shows like this. Once inside they give you a snack and something to drink, and the day I was there they gave out a Snuggle bear and a years supply of fabric softener (vouchers) from Sun. They have a guest comic come in between commercials to entertain the crowd.They had Sherri and Elisabeth answer a few audience questions towards the end.

We decided to do the whole thing and had the three course meal and the 3 glasses of wine matched to each course. It was amazing. The Pinot Grigio complemented the shrimp starter but the amazing red served with the perfectly cooked steak was something else. This was all rounded off with strawberry cheesecake and a glass of champagne. Perfection!

The views were amazing too as you would expect. Service good - overall a very enjoyable evening. Beware of the extra service charge for larger parties though - it bumps the price up astonishingly.

Went to the View restaurant/bar in the Marriott just off Broadway well worth it. Go about 6.30 and leave about 7.50 as after 8 if you are not staying in the hotel or eating there you have to pay a cover charge of 8 dollars. We just had a cocktail there and would recommend them waiter was very helpful told us about the cover charge straight away.
