    I've been to the View twice it's lovely but I wish you could purchase the food a la carte as well. I feel you sould be able to have brunch a little less expensively for people who eat one trip to the buffet.

    We ate a three course meal, and all the food tasted like something being heated from a jar/ tin, or being prepared at least a day ahead. The view from our table was great, so it was not all bad. Expensive!

    I celebrated my engagement by having dinner with my fiancee here. I loved the view and ambiance. It was super romantic and we loved the dishes. There were a few things that irked me. They state that each sitting is usually 2 hours long. I didn't understand why that was, and then when I got there, I realized...everything took much longer than normal. Most notably, 10 minutes after we were seated we were offered water and then some time after that we were provided a menu. Waiter said he would do something "special" for dessert, when it was just something routine for them; we were given what I felt was standard dessert instead of offered options or the ability to choose our own. Overall great food and great for special occasions.

    My sisters and I had booked a table at The View, after having been there ourself, as a surprise for our parents 33th. anniversary, and their first time in New York. The feed-back we got from your parents was amazing! The food and wine had been great, the waiter had been sweet and very talkative. But best of all they got a cake with: happy anniversary written on it. This cake was not ordered by my sister and I, so we were VERY happy, that the view did this for our parents!! Thank you very much! :)

    A very pleasant evening spent on floor 48. We had a window seat which was much appreciated. Window seats are first come first served so a little luck and timing is needed to secure one. We are at 7pm and there was plenty of room in the restaurant at that time. The food was nicely presented. We had crab cakes to start which were delicious then steak which was well cooked and tasty. Overall a great evening and we were not rushed although the bookings do state that there is a time limit of two hours we were there for around 3. I guess because we had extra drinks and rounded off the evening with coffee. They expect an 18% tip and although this is a bit steep it is special.The dinner is prix fixe at 84$ each and drinks are pricey. Try it once.

    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.

    We went to The View to celebrate a September birthday and anniversary, hoping for a very special experience, and were not disappointed! This was our 3rd time, but the first for their Sunday brunch. Our waiters, Mort and Joseph, were attentive and friendly. Of course, you can't go wrong with the view itself, and we had a beautiful, sunny day to revolve around the city. What set it apart were the unusual, such as cured salmon and mango/lobster shooters, the enticing, such as shot-glass size custard and mousse desserts, as well as the actual display of the foods - salad greens set into a box, and foods displayed as if at a local market. Everything was top-shelf, specialty items you'd find in a gourmet market. Delicious coffee & mimosas.

    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.

    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 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 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.
