    The view from The Asiate is fantastic. The breakfast we had could have been perfect if it wasn't for the burnt toast my husband was served. Of course they gave him new ones after pointing this out, but I would have expected not to be served burnt ones to start with at a place like this...

    Asiate came highly recommended but, given the high expectations and cost, it was a disappointment. Pros: Our waiter was very nice and accommodated our need for a gluten-free meal for one in our party of three. He also brought out a chocolate dessert with "Happy Birthday" written on it for the birthday celebrant. The Wagyu beef was exceptional. Two of our three desserts and the coffee were very good. The ambiance was lovely, even though we were seated in the middle of the room. Cons: We were not given a window seat even though I had requested one in writing when making the reservations and via phone when confirming our reservations. We did not receive butter until about 15 minutes after we were served bread! When I asked about the delay, I was told they were waiting "for the butter to soften." Shouldn't they have thought of that before we were seated so we could receive the butter and bread at the same time? The truffle risotto was watery, the lobster entrée was fair at best and the venison entrée was only average. The service was not particularly attentive. Neither pro nor con: Oddly, we were not given the opportunity to select our own desserts. The waiter chose for us and delivered a different dessert to each of us. Fortunately, two of the three were delicious (one was fair) so it worked out.

    TRULY OUTSTANDING. Chef does wonderful sauces. As the meal ends, you are thinking of when you can return. Close to perfection. Despite frequent business diners, Asiate can be romantic with outstanding food, extensive wine list, caring service, wonderful 59th Street views. Two-course lunch at $42 is good value. Add wine, dessert, espresso and the bill quickly adds up. Experience is worth price. One of our favorite NYC restaurants. It compares with Four Seasons, Le Perigord, Lincoln, Blue Hill.

    My friend and I celebrated her birthday for the third time in a row at Asiate. As with the previous two times, we were treated royally. Our very friendly and efficient waitress suggested that we start with the Tasting of 3 Sparkling Cocktails, and we were off to a great start. The prix-fixe brunch came with 4 mini appetizers on a square plate with 4 compartments. The cauliflower cappuccino was especially creative and delicious. We both ordered the grilled steak and over easy eggs, cooked to perfection. We had to make room for the chocolate bread pudding and pumpkin tart - 2 desserts! Our table on the 35th floor by the window overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park enhanced a spectacular brunch experience.

    The Asiate is a 'very nice' dining establishment. On the plus side the food was good but the service was very slow, we definitely were served slower than the Americans. We had also requested a window seat which we didn't get. It was very nice, but I think we could have had 'very nice' elsewhere that actually met all our requirements.

    Great experience up until the last 5 min where the hostess approached us in front of everyone informing us our tip was too small while pretending to ask if the service was good or there was a problem. This was said with attitude and sly. The restaurant is a 5 star venue at a 5 star hotel, they should not employ such a hostess with poor experience. The world has different tipping culture habits, they should respect the guest as we are already paying for the service. Will make sure never to return or recommend this insulting place to anyone.

    If it's a special occasion, if it's for an importan guest, if you just want to have a great dining experience, Asiate is our choice. The food and the service, not to mention the view, are sensational. We've never had a bad meal and the wine list, while not the most extensive, has plenty of great choices from reasonably priced to very expensive.

Three course prix fixe is a good deal however drinks starting at $15/$18 per glass add up quickly. It was a birthday dinner and they surprised us with a small cake at the end, lovely touch.

    After staying at the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas last year we knew this restaurant was going to be a great option, and it didn't disappoint. They were especially accommodating to our friend who came to join us after our meal for a night cap. It's a great space with a great view, and a sensational menu to complement.

    My husband and I spent our anniversary at the Asiate. There is a stunning view on the Manhattan skyline. I asked a table next to the window but they instead gave me a table in the middle of the room. I think the tables next to the windows - where you have the best view - are reserved for the hotel guests. The main courses were fantastic, the entree and the deserts were ok but not at the same level

    My friend and I dined here exactly a year ago. We wanted to re-experience the same setting this time. Our request for a window-side seating was fulfilled; the corner seating was event better than what we expected. Here the wine list never dissapoints, our Alter Ego Palmer was remarkable! Our main dish were both seafood, Turbot and Maine Lobster; both were very delicious. The vegetable soup was a little on the salty side; but then most restaurants in the US prepare the soup too salty anyway. The service has always been top-notch.

    First Time in NYC, for some reason a few years passed until I decided to go to NYC, and for a good reason, Birthday and Propossing. So when you search for Romantic Dinner, Asiate is the first one, and is very well earned. Upon arrival, I was cordially received, they had my notes on Birthday Celebration and more importantly the proposal. They quicly set us up in a table even being packed and once our real table was ready I was more than impressed, I was amazed by the view, candlelight neat table - Imagine a a view over Manhattan Central Park while you dine....It was a fantastic experience, price is fair, service was amazing...and if you wonder, yes, she said yes ;-)....

    We are back in Germany and now I take my time to write a few lines about the location. About this portal we have booked a table and reserved a table by the window. We were first greeted very unfriendly - there was no table available for us at the window, we were placed into a corner without questions or acceptance of my coat. The lady of reception was very unfriendly and we decided immediately to leave the place. There is a local star and the service here would be different than that applied what we have experienced.

The food was amazing, high end quality. Not cheap, but for a special occasion worth every dollar. We were celebrating a birthday, and they thoroughly spoilt us. I cant thank the staff enough for making the day even more special!

    . The views were amazing but the food was totally strange, combinations that just didn't go together. We had the Prawn starter, it was served with coconut mousse, seared pineapple and something very fragrant, it just didn't work. The Turbot that my daughter ordered was just inedible and got sent back. I had the veal dish but the jasmine tea sauce just totally overpowered everything else on the plate even the weird apple and radish accompaniment. The orange blossom Panna cotta just tasted like perfume, the orange blossom was very intense and totally overpowered everything else. Very expensive as well....$25 for a small glass of mediocre wine. Wished we had never gone to Asiate. Please don't be sold by the view.
