The View is a rotating restaurant at the top of the Marriott Marquis hotel. As you would expect, the drinks and food are expensive, but the quality is good enough and the rotating view of Mid-town is hard to beat. We also recommend the roof-top bar and lounge at the new Hyatt on the east side of Broadway. Also expensive but an incredible outdoor experience on a nice summer night. It's not well known yet but when it is, it will be impossible to get into.

After a long day of sightseeing we were able to get an early reservation and couldn't be more pleased!!! Ask for Samir if you go! He was a breathe of fresh and all of his recommendations were top notch!!! My husband had the 2lb lobster with his filet and I had the salmon which were all delicious. I almost forgot, how can you beat the view? Expensive but wonderful experience.

The restaurant is good, view is awesome and the desert is fantastic... But costly, even more when the waiter says that normally guests usually leave at least 15% as tips…

This was a surprise birthday dinner for my wife. The fact that it's a revolving restaurant high above Times Square is the reason for most of the stars. It takes about an hour for an entire turn.The food was okay. I wasn't too impressed, pretty average, including the portions, but because it's a three-course meal, you do get full. The ambience is great though, and service is very friendly. Restaurant week menu/prices are available year-round which is a huge plus and makes it pretty affordable, not just for special occasions. However, we were kind of tricked into ordering from the regular (expensive) menu, which I didn't like, but because it was a special occasion, didn't mind. Definitely worth it to try. The view in the majority of the turn is pretty good, but I honestly expected more. It's not their fault though that too many high-rise buildings are blocking their view.
