    Dined with my friend for her first time in NY. Said I'd treat her. Food was lovely, service by waiters was very attentive. Everything ran smoothly with everyone performing their job with professionalism and ease. Views exceptional, comfortable and very enjoyable night. If I can persuade my husband, I'll definitely return on my next New York trip. Thank you.

    After seeing the reviews on Yelp, I did not have high expectations. Many people complained of the food and service. I must have been lucky because my server was great and the food was actually pretty good. The view was a little disappointing because you are separated by a window and another wall/window outside which made it hard to get a gooooood view. Overall, I was satisfied with this place. I would recommend to go during Restaurant Week or on special occasions.

    A friend came in from out of town and suggested this place, an actual rotating restaurant in Times Square. It was Restaurant Week so they had a Prixe Fixe that was about half the usual price. The food was mediocre, the service was pretty good, and the view was great. No surprise for a restaurant called The View. The overall impression was that they assumed no customer would ever return so they didn't have to put much into the kitchen, or what came out of it. So, if you are a tourist this might be worth doing once. If you are looking for a good meal you can do better a few blocks further west.

    I'd suggest you come when it's dark so you can see the city lights. The food was good, a little bland for my tastes but well worth the price for restaurant week. I had a 6pm reservation and when I called to move it up to 5:30 , the hostess said they were unable to since they were completely booked. So I came in at 6 and the restaurant was at least 60% vacant... Even when I left sometime after 7. It annoyed me that she was unaccomodating.

    I took my daughter to NYC for her 17th birthday. We went to a Broadway show and then had reservations for 7:00 at The View. Trying to figure out the elevators was confusing, but we reached the restaurant with no problem and on time. We were seated by the window, as per my request. The waiter/waitress/hostess could not have been nicer. The food was great and they surprised my daughter with a birthday dessert, even I had no clue about that surprise! Definitely a restaurant to go to when you visit NYC, we will be back again soon.

    My first time in New York visiting from Australia, my husband and I wanted to get the feel of the beautiful surroundings of the city, and it's just what we encountered. From the elevator going up to the restaurant to the time we left, we were absolutely in awe of the food, service and spectacular views. We had a memorable time and would highly recommend it to any of our friends/relatives that may visit in the future. Thank you all.

    Not only were the views amazing, the food was absolutely out of this world and the service was absolutely spot-on. Could not fault our experience. One tip, the elevator takes you to the 48th floor very quickly - so quickly that your ears 'pop' slightly on the way up and back down!

    Went here for a special birthday occasion on our first visit to NYC. Restaurant setting, ambience and service are very good with friendly and helpful staff. Food is 'ok-good' but needs some improvement to hit the mark to which they proclaim to be (Tortellini really needed some seasoning and the veg are slightly too firm/raw. These are top-end prices - and ok, you're paying for the view too - but should really be top notch. Great too - I mentioned on booking that it was for a birthday occasion and they gave my partner a mini chocolate ganache birthday cake prior to dessert. This was really good. Don't get me wrong, a great experience and I'd recommend and go back - just food quality could easily be raised up to 100% without much difficulty.

    We dined at The View on Aug 7th, 2014. We were celebrating a weekend getaway to NYC. The dining was excellent, our server Luis, was very professional with the Voice of a Radio announcer. He was very professional, he seemed happy to serve us and made sure that we were pleased with his service and the menu choices we've made. I am 100% that we will come back to dine at The View next time we are in NYC, and there are two reasons for our confidence, one is the food quality and the second is our server experience. THANK YOU, LUIS!

    In August 2014 i've been in 'The View' with my parents and my Brother. My Parents haven't seen such "expensive" places in their lives, so they were simply amazed. I booked a table at 7.30 p.m. so that we could see the sundawn, and it worked out pretty good. The sundawn in combination with the skyscrapers of New York build up such a ambiente, that leaving from there got hard :) I think we've been there for 2,5 - 3 hours, and we enjoyed every single minute. Especially when it is dark outside you get a completely different impression of New York provided you are looking down from the view ;) Even as young adults (23 and 19 yrs old) me and brother can recommend this place to every visitor of NY, just because everything was just satisfying.

    Went to The View for restaurant week, so this review may not apply to non-restaurant week diners. Food was good, but portions were small and not worth the full price. Waiter was very attentive and friendly until food came, then we had to wait an hour for our check and had to ask two different waiters. $20 for a glass of house white wine ($10 for red). View was absolutely gorgeous, ambiance was great, restaurant is really nice. Would go back for a special occasion but otherwise would not.

    This is the second time I was here for Restaurant week.I was here in 2013 & now 2014. I enjoyed both times being here, but the service this time was a terrible beginning. The waiter I had was impatient, no smiling facial, and was rude. I was very surprised to experience this kind of manner at a very high end restaurant like this. I was really looking forward to this like last year, but the waiter definitely ruin the beginning moment for us when we were ordering. Until the entrée was served, he started to be very kindly, nice & smiling. I don't know what it was,but it was that moment that almost killed our night. Especially when I was introducing my friends and family on how great of an experience I had last year in 2013. Great food & view.

    The view restaurant is a fantastic place to spend a special evening with your loved ones. Although the whole restaurant needs a restauration. Furniture and carpet are long out of fashion and the cosi touch is missing. Service personal should be better trained. Eg: how to serve a rather expensive bottle of wine...

    I was very much looking forward to this booking. The service was very poor. Waited a long time for meals to arrive. The menu was limited but prices were expensive. The waitress was nice enough but I wasn't impressed with the overall experience. The view was the best bit. I wouldn't recommend to a friend.
