  • "This is a place you go one time. Its draw is the revolving resturant. Food was good, service was poor and slow, the view is mixed , Great to see all the buildings in NYC but when you look down you see a lot of big commercial air conditioners."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Been here many times and it's awesome every single time!!"

  • "A very well planned out brunch buffet. Something to please every taste bud. Staff is friendly and very willing to please. I celebrated my Birthday and the staff treated me and my guests like royality. A relaxed and pleasant setting. Well worth the price."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Really amazing view, and the restaurants rotates! Unfortunately It would be smarter to buy a ticket for the empire state building and walk around the top twice instead of having dinner at THE VIEW. The Staff (except for waitress) behaved as if you were just another one of those annoying guests upon entry. The menu is very limited en way way WAY to expensive for what it offers. 350 USD for two adults and a kid. (not even wine) Food was ok but worth half the money.Believe me when I say I am not just a person who like to write these kind of bad reviews... just a warning. For the view its a yes... but you pay a fortune for just a view."

  • "FOOD IS HORRIBLE. BREAD WAS COLD, SCALLOP SALAD WAS SO SALTY, THAT YOU CANNOT EVEN EAT IT. GOOD VIEW BUT FOOD IS HORRIBLE. NEVER COMING BACK!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The atmosphere and view was great. The food was good but it was average."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The restaurant is nicely located, however, you could only see buildings blocking most view. This was okay too. However, the server had a block on his shoulder when we requested the restaurant week menu. Theguy helping him was way more friendly. The food was decent but the dessert was awesome. Good portion size."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Restaurant is rotating 360° ok but the outside view is not so great (rooftops and external wall/windows..) Food is not very impressive, the 'foie gras' for exemple was a kind of foam.. the bill however hurts for what you get."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "To celebrate my birthday, my husband and I ate here with our fourteen-year-old granddaughter who was visiting from Israel. The ride up in the bullet-shaped elevator was a real thrill as was the view of Manhattan from the revolving restaurant. Even if the food and service had been bad, we all would have enjoyed ourselves--but both the food and service were spectacular! The fact that we were getting Restaurant Week prices made the experience even better. I highly recommend the flat iron steak, which normally is not a cut that is good, as well as the sea bass. The chocolate cake with raspberries (given to me for free in honor of my birthday) was fabulous also."

    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Ate here for Restaurant Week - was very disappointed with the service from start to finish - and the food was very average. Good tourist attraction and worth going once for the experience only."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The food does not compare to other restaurants at the same price point, but no other restaurant boasts this view. Do this place at least once in your life. It is worth it for that, but I would recommend going to the $38 buffet which is one floor above the formal dining room. The view is even better on this floor and the buffet is better than the food you get in the restaurant. At least you can see what you would get and choose knowingly. They have a chocolate fountain on the buffet as well. Kids would LOVE it."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "good location, good view, the food is better than I expect."

  • "Our wine steward (Jeremy) was outstanding. His presentation and delivery was impeccable. He was courteous and diligent. He elevated our overall experience with his professionalism."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "My hotel has a beautiful view of the water and 100's of buildings. Thew View however is a rotating restaurant INSIDE of a square building that has windows and walls - and they put their service areas on the rotating part so you can really only see 90 degree views if that - they do put mirrors on the walls to give the appearance of expansive views - but its not the same. Additionally, you cross by a solid wall, see tons of AC vents on the tops of roofs, peer into lots of hotel rooms a the W hotel with people in their beds, and have 2 spots where there is a view to speak of (one of which you need to stand up to look down and see). The View is better on the ground in Times Square. Skip this for the 1000's of other great restaurants in NYC."

  • "The absolute best in nw w York city. Best food best view best ambiance"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Took advantage of The View restaurant for Sunday Brunch with the family. The View and the view itself certainly did not disappoint. Good food and very good service. The staff were a credit to the restaurant, and have already recommended to other friends. What a great way to experience the Manhattan skyline from the very heart of it, as the restaurant revolved and gave one a unique way to enjoy the skyscrapers of New York."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The scenic view is very good, of course, but the restaturant itself and the food need improvement. The restaurant looks dated. The food was good, but not great and overpriced, even by NYC standards."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Excellent as a one off special occasion as rarther pricey Remember you have drinks and tip on top of set menu price"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Had way too high expectations to this restaurant. The last two days i have had dinner at hakkasan, del frisco's og del massaria. Those three restaurants were all better and cheaper than the View. I booked a table at the View almost three months early, but still i had to wait 30 minutes for my table!!!???"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Excellent view of New York City. I enjoyed trying to find various buildings using the map on the napkin. We enjoyed watching the sunset as the restaurant revolved around."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This was not my first experience at the view, although it has been over 30 years. My wife and enjoyed the restaurant and the scenic view was majestic. The dinner was excellent and I would recommend for special occasions."

  • "My wife had a birthday so a trip to New York from Sweden was her gift. Of course you must visit The Wiew. It was absolutely incredible and an incomparable service and very good food and a memory for Life."

  • "Franck was just perfect! We have celebrate my daughter's birthday and will keepgreat memories from this very special moment!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "As the only revolving restaurant in New York City, it certainly has a wow factor. However it's not just its unique novelty value that makes this place great. On the evening that my wife and I dined there, the food was very good and not too expensive, the wine selection appealed to all types, including non-wine connoisseurs, and the service was excellent. I particularly recommend timing your meal for sunset, because watching this from ever-changing viewpoints is truly spectacular. Five star!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "What a great dinner. Everything was wonderful, from the view to the service to the food."

  • "Crab cakes were delish. strip steak and sauces very tasty. Our server was excellent, personable and accommodating. He made the experience even better than expected."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Could not fault the food as it was very nice and the service was good. However, this restaurant is way over priced for what it is. As nice as the meal was, a similarly nice meal could have been had elsewhere for half the price. This may explain why the restaurant was very empty on our visit. The views during the revolution were good and this is why I think this retaurant feels it can grossly over charge. Lower the prices and people will come !! Don't even get me started on the lounge upstairs which we visited after our meal. Poor service & an $8 cover charge per person which I refused to pay. This establishment could thrive if it weren't so pretentious."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I went to The View on our vacation in New York to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. Even though the food was delicious and the actual was spectacular and romantic our experience was unfortunately overshadowed by the fact that a guy at the table next to us was so incredibly loud that it was impossible to keep or even start a conversation. We literally felt that we were part of his dinner party, but without being able to get a word in. The waiter told us that Mr. Loud was an executive at the hotel so unfortunately there was nothing he could say to him. So before going keep in mind that there is a fixed hierarchy and even though you put down 300-400 dollars for a dinner you're obviously in the bottom of said hierarchy."

  • "it was the highlight of my stay in New York. We enjoyed it a lot."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The view is an obstructed view. The restaurant is inside of another building so you rotate inside of a building seeing another building outside and walls, etc. Not a clear shot view. I have to say food is excellent and lobster is HUGE."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Hugely Overpriced, mediocre food, poor ambience, ripoff tourist spot, also added 80 dollar tip automatically for a table of 4!!!!! That's equivalent to someone's wages for a nights work! Ridiculous."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I have tasted a much better foods at somewhere else for much less price, maybe because it is a rotating restaurant at 48th floor with panoramic view of new York high-rise buildings and it is the only one existed?"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "A fantastic celebration brunch for the family. The widest choice and high quality buffet with excellent, attentive service provided"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "$320+gratuity=$375 for two people to eat is a bit pricy, no prices in the menu at the restaurant. Great place, no doubt, but I hardly visit for this reason. I often visit a place in Queens (parkside) which is as good as it gets, and the best porterhouse in the world and is only $50."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "For a restaurant that is sold on 'the view' - there are better views to be had in NYC. Food was distinctly average and massively overpriced as we had feared when we booked this."

  • "was dissapointed with the pork starter and the veg on the main couse"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Everything was OK, but nothing more, except for the waiter who was great. Menu wasn't straight forward to read. Food was quite ok and view was nice from time to time. Considering the price, the food good be a fair bit better."
