A fabulous place to dine. You get this feeling you are in a place you never have experienced before.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findLovely meal, views outstanding, service impeccable. Expensive but worth it for the experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and serviceWe had guests over from another country and had an absolutely amazing dining experience. The view was great and we absolutely loved everything about this place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat celebration spotMy husband and I are fortunate to be still married after 22 years. We chose to celebrate at The View. It was a wonderful experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA very good eveningNice drinks, had to wait for 25 min even though we had a reservation, cool place, good food, fair prices - trendy place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experiencestaff was wonderful. food was great. we enjoyed and would definitely come back5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!!The View restaurant is a very nice, high class restaurant. The staff greets you as you walk in and make you feel comfortable. The ambience is formal and the views of NYC are spectacular. The food, fixed menu, was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant while out on the town in NYC.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPlace with special view New Yorkerthe place was probably a bit dated and could do with a bit of modernity, it remains that it is a fantastic place for a romantic dinner, or do not stop at the food is good but not great. The staff are lovely and the ivory tower to watch the whole new york worth that one stops there5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMchoiceThe food was delicious but I would personally prefer more choice. The choices on the menu were such that I would struggle to find something different that I would prefer to order, unless the menu changes often.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAB'sWe went on a Monday night at 7:00 pm and the welcome and overall service was very good and we weren't rushed and in fact we were able to eat in comfort without pressure of there being a second sitting. We managed two and a half revolutions of the restaurant before paying. The food was excellent as was the wine.
Disappointing were the overall views of New York and the Hudson river. We were also advised that dress attire was business casual but this was not adhered to and there were a lot of people in well worn jeans and trainers and if you were making this a special evening out to celebrate then you might be wondering why you bothered.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good - once againThis was the third time when visiting "The View" and for sure not the last time. Food was great! We've been this time the early evening with daylight and so the view to the outside was really different then in the night. Worth to go as well by day :)5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy experience in The ViewThe place has a great view, great service and Amazing food.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFab View at The ViewUnique revolving restaurant with magnificent views of New York City. Go early evening and watch it get dark. Food is good, service pleasant, Somellier chose wine for us for each course and it was excellent. We had fixed price three course for $79, wine with each course $30 each. Yes it was expensive but for my birthday or special occasion, first time in NYC it was wonderful. We booked on line before leaving England and Darlene responded immediately and asked if we wanted flowers or champagne etc. Greete on the night with Happy birthday from front of house, which was nice! Gave us a window seat and complimentary b day cake with candle, made it memorable. Prices are clear before you visit and we thought very comparable with London - enjoy5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionWE celebrated our friend's birthday before theater. Staff was attentive and made sure we were on time for a 7PM curtain.
Food,ambience and service excellent. This was a Tuesday evening and very quiet.Our friends adored the whole experience. Another plus for the Marriott organization4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne hour to eat....The food, the service, the ambiance: all very good. But .... we got one hour to eat our meal of 3 courses. There was no time to drink and chat between the courses, one became directly after the other, and we felled the pressure to be ready on "time". We almost didn't have any time to enjoy the great view.
Therefore was the price of this dinner very high: $ 79,00 per person.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood good- views amazing!The View Restaurant has really good food and even better views (thus the name). It's a little expensive for the portion sizes, but the up charge that you're paying on the food is for location, location, location.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal restaurantThis is the most amazing restaurant I have ever been to. The food, service, and atmosphere is al perfect for a night out! I have recommended this place to my family an friends and this was my second time back in two months. I love it!!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost Great.Only bad thing i would say is that our waiter was kind of rude to myself and my wife for the first 25-30 minutes of our dinner. Besides that little complaint everything else was beautiful. Food was delicious and the view was perfect, we sat down just as the sun was ready to set and it was very romantic for us.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVisited The View for the secondVisited The View for the second time in two years and was again deligthed with the food, the ambiance with the great view, of course, and the service. Plates were very well prepared and presented and the quality of the food was outstanding. The service from the waiters was outstanding as well; very friendly and eager to please. Coincidentally I went to the restaurant on my birthday and when the waiters found out I was treated to a nice little birthday cake with a candle; the same thing happened to one of the ladies in the next table. Very nice little detail; it says a lot about the operation.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMKids enjoyed it...Lovely, good service, good but not great food....much too expensive.

Nice for special occasions. Outstanding view of NYC.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of a kind restaurant,One of a kind restaurant, great dining experience for a special occasion.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food, service,excellent food, service, atmosphere!!! a little pricey but worth every dollar!!!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant experienceWe enjoyed our trip to the view. It is quite pricey but you are paying for the experience not just the food. The meal was a set menu which was very nice $79 per head without tax or tip. Cocktails from $16+ each. If you have a couple of drinks the cost soon starts to mount up. Service was good the waiter was very nice. It was my friends birthday and the brought out a small birthday cake and sang to her. The view was very good both in day light and in the dark. The revolving bit can take a little while to get use to. At times you can feel the restaurant moving although it is slowly revolving. It takes nearly 2 hours to fully revolve and see every view from each angle.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for my mother's 80thWe went for my mother's 80th birthday, and it was PERFECT!! The service, food and location were excellent. Thank YOU!!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingAs it was our first visit to The View we didn't know what to expect so everything was OUTSTANDING. The second best expereinces during our visit to NYC after the ishockeyderby between NY Rangers and New Jersey.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best Sunday brunchesOne of the best Sunday brunches ever. Unbeatable view. Lots of unique/different offerings. Unpressured. Had to bug the wait staff several times for various items (which they promptly procured) but I shouldn't have had to go hunting. Pricey but worth it.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDespite any negative comments,Despite any negative comments, The View is well worth the experience if you are looking for a spectacular view, a solid, very good dining experience and a memorable event. The staff was terrific, making diners feel like guests despite the high turnover and rapid re-setting of the tables, you didn't feel rushed. The setting is quite something high above New York and the food was really quite good to delicious depending upon what one ordered. For a special event - in my case traveling with a partner and older aunt neither of whom had been to New York before, it was a truly enjoyable occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view from a German coupleService was really great all waiters very observant but never obtrusive. Some time distance between the menue courses would be appreciated. Food was on average for sure not on the high end. Would expect hot meal instead of only warm.
Nevertheless with the service and the exceptional view it really makes this spot special. Online reservation highly recommended and great response from the restaurant on customer requirements.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice restaurant. TheVery nice restaurant. The entire restaurant spins very slowly, about one full rotation per hour. However, because the Marriott is surrounded by many taller buildings within a couple of blocks, the view is limited. The food was very good, but served in very small portions for the price. Service was excellent.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurantThe food was excellent, unfortunately we got give the wrong steak and I ate my wife's rare steak and she ate my medium rare but it was very nice all the same.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food. The mushroomFantastic food. The mushroom truffle bisque was outstanding. As was the filet and lamb. The setting was intimate, view of downtown at night was spectacular. It was $$$$, but for the experience is worth it.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMUnforgettable experienceFantastic view of Manhattan.Good food and a selection of nice wine.The staff prepared a birthday cake for my friends birthday!I'll definately come here next time I visit NY.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe View was outstanding inThe View was outstanding in every aspect form the food to the staff -- every one was so wonderful and sincere -- I brought my mother to New york for her first visit and we were celebrating her 90th birthday -- every single person wished her a happy birthday and made her feel very special. Can't say enough about my wonderful experience!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my boyfriend's 30thIt was my boyfriend's 30th birthday and I made a reservation for 7:00 PM. The elevator ride to the 48th floor was amazing, there was such a great view of everything. When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated immediately. I loved that the restaurant turned during my entire visit giving me a new view every second. The appetizers were amazing. The main course was smaller than I imagined and the meat was undercooked. For desert I ordered the strawberry cheesecake and my boyfriend the tiramisu but instead of my boyfriend getting tiramisu he got the chocolate birthday cake (which the waiter did not tell us in advance.) The food was pretty good and the view was amazing but our waiter was very inattentive and barely checking on us.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!Great restaurant for brunch. A little pricey but the food selection was very good and tasted good. The view was great. Great place to celebrate our anniversary.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and view. ServiceGreat food and view. Service was great in the restaurant. Highly recommend.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated our 28th weddingCelebrated our 28th wedding anniversary there with friends. Service was great, food menu was limited but a nice variety to pick from and I actually loved that. I don't like an overwhelming selection. I had the special, halibut and it was very good. Also loved the special dessert they gave us for our anniversary.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM21 in New YorkExcellent service, fantastic view - they made us feel really special - we travelled from the UK, it was my daughters 21st birthday - we had a great view and got to see the sun set - wonderful memory.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, especiallyFood was excellent, especially the salmon entree that I had. Server and his assistants were very nice and very personable; one of them gave me a cocktail napkin that has a map of many of the buildings we rotated around. Overall, a splendid evening. The noise level is, like most restaurants, dependent upon how many and who is seated throughout the restaurant; fortunately, this restaurant isn't as loud as many because of the design of the space (because it's rotating, the volume is only dictated by those tables in your vicinity, not the whole seating area). Overall, superb!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
