Came here for a team lunch one afternoon. The views outside were awesome, but the musty carpets and the service were not. It was excruciatingly slow. We did have a large group but the rest of the restaurant was pretty much empty, and we ended up spending 2.5 hours there.

To start, we had the buffalo wings (these were fine), and the guacamole. We tried to order two orders, but they said they only had enough for one order. That seemed odd to me, especially since they had avocado toast on the menu, but we still stuck with it. Out comes the guac, which was this unsightly, almost electric green color. It looked like they added food coloring to it, and if not, they definitely bought it premade (which would make sense when they said they ran out). Not surprisingly, it did not taste good.

For my entree, I went with the asparagus risotto (arborio rice, roasted asparagus, parmesan cheese) with chicken. No complaints here. The risotto was perfectly cheesy, and the chicken was cooked just right.

I would say come here for the views and maybe a drink, but you can skip the food.

Ate breakfast on the rooftop terrace View of the World. Amazing views of lower Manhattan, One World Observatory and 911 Memorial.

We loved being able to relax in such a beautiful setting after the intensity of the museum. The service was friendly. The salads delicious and the view delightful. We did make a reservation and had no problems.

We first went here for lunch and our waiter Spencer was so friendly and informative that we reserved a table late night for drinks and dessert after eating dinner at Morton's. The views during day and night are breathtaking. The staff was friendly and Cappuccino and CremeBrulee was amazing.

We had just finished visiting the 9/11 Memorial and looked up someplace for dinner and I am so glad we came here! The food was great! They had some really nice cocktails. The bartender is known for his Manhattens and he sure delivered. The service was also great. The server chatted with us and recommended bars and restaurants we needed to check out .
And the view! The view is just amazing with everything lit up. You can see all of the towers It was a great way to end our tour of the World Trade Center.
