    Came here a few nights ago for a dinner of 4. The atmosphere is very nice as expected for a 5 star hotel but the food was average and not very impressive considering the type of restaurant they are aiming for. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant as there are many more in the city for the same price with MUCH better food and service.

    I decided to make a reservation after reading this Yahoo! article (https://travel.yahoo.com/ideas/10-dreamy-dining-destinations.html). I booked it for my Wife's first Birthday as a married couple. We decided on the Tasting Menu and were completely blown away at the quality of the food, the presentation of the plates and quality of the service. It's expensive on a middle class budget but if you're looking for a romantic, fine dining experience, I highly recommend Asiate.

    Had the tasting menus and from the opening dish the food and service was poor. Sashimi scallop, Ahi, and red snapper were all foul tasting. Next dishes were chewey and lacked flavor. Service spent no time with you to explain your dishes or wine pairing and were too quick to drop a plate on your table and run. My wifes stomach was upset all the following day. I called to speak to the manager or head chef to formalize my complaint the next day and have yet to receive a call back. For the money they are attempting to charge for the tasting and pairing menus, your time and dollar would be better spent elsewhere.

We had eggs Benedict and an All-American breakfast with bacon. Coffe was good and service was impeccable. Both food, service and ambiance fit the price: about $40 per person.

    My date and I started out in a little cozy side table at the bar and enjoyed cocktails. The drinks were creative and delicious. We then moved to the main lounge area and sat in some comfy seats with a great view of the skyline. We ordered another round of cocktails, and munched on wasabi peas for a bit. For dinner we were seated with a magnificent view. We opted for the 7 course prix fix allowing us a relaxed dining experience. The food was perfect, artistically presented. Every single detail of the experience had been considered by Asiate including the way the ambiance evolved as the sun went down. The service was superb. This is the perfect way to start a romantic night with that special someone. Truly enjoyable and unforgettable.

    You can see Central Park and all. Ask for a window table and you will be rewarded with a great view of the Columbus Circle and Central Park South. Food and service are excellent, and a two level dining room provides an intimate atmosphere for a quiet conversation. The food is presented beautifully. My branzino was not over cooked but had crispy skin. Squid ink risotto was not over cooked either. Wagyu and pork my guests had rave reviews.

    I came to NYC on labour day weekend, and reserved this restaurant for my anniversary. And can I say the atmosphere of the restaurant was remarkable. It had beautiful scenery of New York skyline. If your looking for a nice dine for a romantic night this is the place. The food was amazing from the first course to dessert the quality was at it's finest. The staff were very friendly and helpful, very easy to talk to and they helped us with what to decide for the food because the menu looked so delicious and it's hard to make up your mind. Overall a perfect place to take someone special or for a small group

    I am vegan. The on-line menu looked as though I could be accommodated. We noted in the reservation that I was vegan. The lunch menu was a pick one app and one entree -$48. I was told that there was nothing the chef was willing to do for an entree, and that I could select the two salads from the app menu. The heirloom tomato salad consisted of 2 cherry tomato size tomatoes and some watermelon. The second salad had half a dozen pieces of small lettuce, 5 or 6 slices of a raw, undressed small zucchini, and one more cold cherry tomato. The lack of effort to accommodate me, despite 24 hours notice demonstrated laziness and a complete lack of concern. I expected better from a place that looked this good and had such a nice menu on line.

    The night before I went the menu was for $29 prix fixe and is a decent deal given its location, quality, ambiance, and service. There are other 5 star restaurants that offer similar prix fixe menus (JG restos in the area), but not 35th floor overlooking CP and the city. I was looking forward to it and brought my friend there whom was visiting from overseas. When I sat down the waiter said we have recently switched to a new $49 2 course menu,etc. $20 more is a lot but I already sat down and told myself it's okay to splurge once in a while. There was complimentary bread, amuse bouche, your pick of 2 courses and petit fours. The quality, flavors, and portion were on spot and thankfully felt the price hike was justified. Really for special days

    Our friends recommended Asiate to us so we met a friend from CT on our last night in NY. The view is just magnificent overlooking Central Park and Manhattan skyline, but Asiate does not coast on the view. Everything we tried was just excellent, and they have a very good wine list. I had the halibut, our friend the lamb and my wife the beef. The food was coked to perfection with creative sauces and presentation. We rarely eat dessert but we tried the chocolate souffle and flourless cake - both to die for. Our waiter was super helpful and provided the perfect balance between being attentive but not overly so. We were never rushed and enjoyed our cocktails before dinner and each course in its time. We will definitely go back our next NY trip.

    With sweeping views of Cenfral Park and the city this 35th floor restaurant lived up to its repute for us. My friends visitng from Sydney and I were all charmed by the food and with and the fantastic views Asiate offered. The 2 course lunch menu was what we opted for. Both courses and the complimentary palate cleanser served before the meal were beautiful and impressive with their elegant presentations. The soft poached eggs , chilled heirloom tomato soup, scallops, Chatham cod and the Long Island duck were cooked to perfection. It was a truly gastronomical experience in every way! The attentive and cordial service must be mentioned as well. Plan to be back for dinner and brunch.

    When you walk in you have the idea you have arrived at the nr one restaurant in NY. Great view. Once they place you at a table you have to beware of the very cold airco which might be blowing on you. Then you meet the staff that bring ou a menu with either a 3 course select dinner or a 7 course one. No a real la carte menu. The taste? Nothing to talk about. Nothing that you will remember. The staff is dressed like they know what they do; they dont! They forgot about 5 things during our dinner and could all have been students ready for failure. What a bummer! Then the check comes. We love to dine at the best and realise we spend more by doing so. Here it is more then a lot; and why? You might have had the luck to sit at a window table.

    Our dining experience at Asiate was absolutley perfect - from the spectacular views to the perfectly portioned and delicious dishes. We had the prix fix and while it is expensive - every course was memorable. The service was extraordinary. I am looking forward to returning for the next special occasion,although the experience itself can make any evening a special occasion.

    When booking, I wasn'aware that it was part of the Mandarin hotel. My daughter and I were not specially evening dressed, and we got some stange looks from the staff. Not even seated we were handed out the menus, and not even able to hold the wine card. Menu is a fix menu with good choice. In less than an hour meal was finished. Service was a real shame. Unfriendly and. Unprofessional for that kind of restaurant. In my desert, it was good,they even used tin fruits! Not worth the bucks.
