Enjoyed the views. Food was good but disappointed it was a set price menu. $85 bit pricey but the food was very good for the money, would have preferred to choose number of courses as didn't really want 3 but enjoyed it all the same. Drinks extremely expensive. $20 a cocktail and $15 for a glass of wine. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant and asked if we could be moved to a window seat and were told that 4 others were waiting for a window seat. Seemed odd since there were open tables the whole time we were there and no sign of the other couples. Our waitress moved us to a window table to enjoy our desserts without us asking, very nice of her.

Overall a nice experience for a special occasion.

We were advised to go to this restaurant on our recent
to New York. It wasn't bad food good but views not worth the
Hike in prices. Staff were very pleasant and helpful but considering how much this cost I would not return

If you want to pay a ridiculous amount to sit in a revolving space with dated decor, rude staff and terrible food then this is the place for you! We stayed in the Marriott and decided to have a drink at the View after seeing a show. My husband ordered a Grey Goose martini and was served a gin martini. We he told the waitress that she had brought him the wrong drink, she was willing to bring him what he ordered IF we wanted to pay for a second martini. We ended up spending over $50 on two drinks and one of them wasn't even as we ordered. The view is ok but nothing you can't get from Top of the Rock or Empire State.
Skip this place!

Booked in to this lovely restaurant for an evening meal. The views were wonderful as we had a window seat. The fixed 3 course meal was delicious. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. A wonderfully relaxed way to view the New York skyline. Would definately recommend this restaurant.

Four of us very much enjoyed our brunch last weekend. There was a wonderful variety of food, both typical and innovative. Our server and her partner could not have been more accommodating. Is it pricey - not for NYC, and the price includes two mimosas. We would definitely do this again.
