    The least expensive of The Patina Groups 3 Rock Center restaurants (Sea Grill, Rock Center Cafe), Cucina offers fresh, well prepared food with nice service. It's a winner for location and value.

    Working at 30 Rockefeller, I expect most dining establishments to rely on location and not cuisine as the draw. Cucina shows you can have both and be successful.

    Quick place I went to for lunch in 30 Rock. No real complaints. Just make sure if you get the prix fixe that you're aware you only get to choose an entrée with EITHER an app or dessert. Not both. I made that mistake but just bought dessert anyways haha.

    Don't bother making a reservation with OpenTable - they do not honor them. They willfully ignore reservations and will seat walks-ins on a priority basis.

    The menu was very limited and the food was average to say the least. The service wasn't all the great. Friendly but unattentive. Defiantly overpriced but it's near a tourist attraction so it makes sense.

    We went 2 days after Christmas and it was busy Made reservations through open table which saved us as they were full and heard there was a 45 minute wait Not surprising during the holidays Food was ok. pasta a little over done, steak underdone as they were trying to bring everything out at once so the steak wasn't fully cooked and the pasta sat while the steak cooked. Choices are limited. Prices were very good considering location and the more upscale sea grill which was double $ per plate right next door Service was excellent Jose was early to take our order and kept us well taken care of. We would go back

    The food was good, not really high cuisine, but we got a nice starter, at main a good (small) piece of meat with fries only (no vegetables?) and a dessert that was tasteful, but i think not really home made. It tastes good, but this is not a restaurant for fresh -real- dining! And the price was a bit high too. Especially the wine card!

    We ate at Cucina and Co. on December 23 so only a holiday menu was offered with a very limited selection. We had three very mediocre pasta dishes, one small ceasar salad, and a $5 mini cup of hot chocolate that was flavored powder mixed with hot water. The $75 check (plus tip) was hard to swallow. Would not rate this restaurant a good value.

    It was a busy Monday a day before Christmas eve so Rockefeller Center and the NBC studio facility was very busy. Food was ok - simple sandwhiches, salads, and soups. We chose this spot out of convenience and it was acceptable.

    As soon as I arrived it said I had a reservation however my table was not ready. The place was crowded, i was placed next to the register and that didn't help things at all. The waiter took about 15 minutes before coming and taking my order for drinks. Not sure why but it was extremely hot in there. Drinks are over priced specially the wine for the amount they give you and the food was ok.

    This is one of the few 'casual' sit down Restaraunts in the Rockefeller Center complex. Very limited menu. Expensive for very simple food. You could get a better meal elsewhere. But the location is great if you are coming from Radio City.

    Too noisy, inattentive service, overpriced for a 'food court' type dining experience. It was inexcusable that three of us received our entrees and the fourth person was left sitting with no dinner. After five minutes we asked were it was, and it still took another couple of 'flagging' down inquiries of the wait staff to get his entree delivered, FINALLY, about ten minutes after we others had our dinners.

    The food and service were proficient. It's not easy to find a relatively affordable spot in the Rockefeller Center area. The chicken pannini and my fellow diner's salmon were moist and well-crafted. I did feel rushed a bit with the service. Still it's serviceable choice for a quick bite in the area during the week.

    We were a group of 14 with reservations, yet the didn't seem to prepare and ended up not having enough wait staff to tend to us. Delays in getting water, a discombobulated server, overcharging us by not ringing some meals as prix fix--this is a place to skip for the business luncheon.

    This is a great option for a quick and casual sit down lunch in Rock Center,or when you don't want to spend a lot of money for a fancy meal at some of the other restaurants. The food is good, I had a greeat greek salad and my riend had the beet salad with goat cheese and they were both very yummy. I have been there many times whEn shopping in the area or just meeting a friend for lunch. Definitely reccmenmedend it.
