  • "The food was great, but definitely too expensive for these little portions. We left the restaurant hungry. The service was very friendly at first. Until we refused to give a tip of 20%, which he has added to our check amd changed it to 10%. From that moment on, the waiter got really rude. We often go to high quality restaurants, but we never experienced a behaving like this."

  • "Overpriced, mediocre food, glass of wine costs $17, cocktail $19 Ok view especially during sunset but nothing special, definaty not worth the money"

  • "My family loves The View for special occasions, particularly the Sunday brunch buffet. (It's also a great late-night spot if you're looking for drinks and a fabulous dessert bar.) The brunch offers extensive choices--the usual breakfast dishes like eggs, french toast, bacon, unusually good sausages; made-to-order omelets; a nice array of salads, breads, and muffins; bagels and lox; cheeses and cold cuts; a carving station; and a lavish display of desserts--plus two mimosas for each adult and of course coffee. We especially like it for the atmosphere: a revolving view of Manhattan, big comfortable round tables; quiet enough for conversation. We'll be back."

  • "We'd traveled 500 miles to spend 4 days in NYC for an anniversary celebration and selected The View as our final stop before heading back to the airport. We thought it would be a good recap to see the skyline one final time. We were not disappointed. The view was lovely and ever changing. The buffet was terrific, divided into three sections -- entrees, salads and side dishes, and sweets. That kept the lines very manageable and made it easier to see the options. The salmon with passionfruit sauce was particularly tasty, as were the eggs Florentine. The lobster and crab shooters made a fun presentation in addition to being delicious. Service was top-notch as well. All in all, a wonderful experience."

  • "Both food and service was terrible. So sad we choose to have a our anniversary dinner here. We left so disappointed. Only positive was a great view. I would skip the fancy, butter drenched prix fixed menu and stay in the lounge if you want the view. But get there before 8pm or u will be charged $8 pp just for being there by the hotel."

    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Don't expect your steak to be as your ordered it, your lobster to be cooked properly or for it to only cost the advertised price. It is just a hook to get you in. The view is from half way up, so if you are lucky and don't blink, you might see the Empire State bldg, and you can catch the top of the Chrysler bldg, but don't set your expectations too high. You will be disappointed."

  • "One word: AMAZING! We made a reservation for 9:30pm and though we arrived a few mins. late, we didn't wait long to be seated. The hostess was very accommodating when we asked to be seated by the windows, and I'm so glad we did. The views are BEAUTIFUL! And yes, the restaurant does rotate, you can kind of feel it too. It was a great experience! As for the food, the restaurant did not disappoint. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and everything was delicious. We also had a bottle of wine which had us VERY happy by the end of our night. I really recommend this spot for special occasions, or even if you want to treat yourself one day. Good food, good drinks, great service and even better views!"

The matre d acknowledged our reservation when we arrived and sat us at a window table as requested. The meal was delicious and the portions were good. Our waiter was very attentive even tho it was a very busy night. I highly recommend this location especially if you're celebrating something special!!!"

  • "I had my 50-th birthday dinner at the View on Aug 15-th. I had" restaurant week dinner" with my husband. I was nervous at the beginning because I read a lot of bad comments about the waiters attitude towards people who choose this option. We had a good time and great waiter. The food was fine ,but the portions were very small. I was a little hungry after the three -course dinner. Because it was my birthday ,I got a small cake as a celebration from the restaurant, which was very tasty and a nice gesture. The view is so-so ,I expected a little more " wow".. Overall we had a nice time ."

Everything ran smoothly with everyone performing their job with professionalism and ease. Views exceptional, comfortable and very enjoyable night.

  • "Very pleased. Even on an overcast day the senic view was amazing. Picking the View to celebrate our anniversary was the right choice"

  • "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."

  • "The bread was cold. The chicken was dry. The "O" wine was a great value at $30. Everything else was just OK, including the service. The cheesecake, and the mousse were excellent. The view is priceless."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "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!"
