    If you have over $100 to spend on brunch then come to the view. Food was tasty and exotic and the service was good. If you do not have go drive I recommend taking MTA because it's right in Times Square and the traffic and pedestrians can make you angry. Otherwise it's nice for special occasions.

    I celebrated my 50th Birthday with just my fiancé and enjoyed the ambiance and romantic dinner while watching the NYC skyline. It was a wonderful evening! It was quite costly but the service and food was exquisite. I had Jumbo Lump & Dungenous Crab Cake Mustard Fruit Relish and the Center Cut Tenderloin Baked Steak Fries, Glazed Onions, Thyme Roasted Carrots, Soft Truffled Camembert Cheese. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

    If you want to go there, consider going to the bar, having a drink, seeing the view and moving on. The restaurant itself has an presumptuous menu that does not live up to what its price suggests

    We always enjoy dining at the View and bringing out-of-town visitors, however, this time, although the food, beverages and service appeared to be their usual excellence, we were dismayed to see that their sanitation grade was "pending". That is NOT a good thing!!!

    It's a perfect place to have a dinner with a beautiful view over Manhattan, but the regular menu is just good. Furthermore, the menu option has a unfair price. They told me that this option had lobster, but when I read the menu I found out that I needed to pay plus $43 over the $86 already paid. I felt cheated. It is, in my opinion, overpriced.

    The staff was incredibly friendly. The ambience was romantic. The food was incredible. The experience was like no other. Pay close attention to the dress code as they do have a dress code it's very easy to follow. Don't forget your camera and try to book your reservation for sunset through the evening so you can get a great view of the city.

    Dined on 9/3/2014
    The food was good, but the view from the 47th floor of the Marriott Marquis was the part worth the expense. The revolving restaurant just before sunset gave us a view during daylight and then again at night (revolves once per hour--we were there two hours, so we got two revolutions). The prices were a little ridiculous ($10 for water for the two of us, which for most restaurants is complimentary--we ordered other drinks as well--if you are not going to drink water, make sure you let your server know not to bring it to the table--was a surprise when we got the bill). We were in NYC on vacation, so it was worth the splurge. Service was excellent.

    The title of my review says it all "Good food, decent view, great service". The view is 48 floors up in the center of mid-town Manhatten which is essentially surrounded by other buildings. It was everything we expected - the food was good, service great and we expected to pay for the view.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    The view restaurant was very disappointing. We had to wait for several minutes on arrival for our table as it wasn't ready. When we were seated, we were greeted by a very pushy waitor who kept suggesting we bought more food and drink to a point were it was uncomfortable. After our starter which was very basic all our cutlery was removed and we were handed dessert menu's before our main course. During our main course, a staff member smashed a glass beside our table. Broken glass was left on the floor. When I pointed this out I was told it would be cleaned up later when the restaurant was closed. I found this very dangerous. The food was cold undercooked and had no flavour and was extremely under priced. I would never return.

    We took our nephew (18) and niece (21) on birthday treats. They were visiting New York for the first time from the UK and Sunday brunch was a great way to see the sights from the revolving restaurant. The food was superb with plenty of choice for us all - one of us needed gluten free food and two were vegetarian. The wait staff made us feel special and even brought a surprise birthday cake! Our nephew said it was the coolest restaurant he had ever been to.

    Poor food. Lamb rump completely tasteless, could have been eating anything. Steaks below average. Never seen such tiny pieces of cheese on a cheese board! Waiter lost interest in us once a larger party arrived as he was obviously only interested in how large a tip he was going to earn. He asked if we wanted him to add 18per cent tip to bill and when we said no he was very rude and lost all interest in serving us. Not the only rude waiter on duty that night.Very disappointed as this was going to be the highlight of our first trip to New York. Overall it was over priced and below average. As a result would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Had better food in the Heartland Brewery under the Empire State Building and polite staff.

    The View is an absolutely fantastic restaurant. Of course the most obvious feature of The View is the spectacular panoramic view. It's best to get there just before sunset to enjoy both day light, sunset, and night time views. The food was quite expensive but very nice. Their set menu for $84 (three courses) made things easier and it was nice to know roughly how much the evening would cost in advance. Portions were quite small for big eaters but enough for me and my mum. Our waitress was polite, efficient, and even offered to take our photograph with the gorgeous sunset over the Hudson in the background! A must-do experience for any tourist! Highly recommended.
