After reading the reviews, I didn’t have great expectations. We were a party of 3 and were seated on a table nearest the glass. We started with a shrimp cocktail, pretty presentation and it had good flavor. We each ordered a different entree. Atlantic Salmon, Cornish game hen and the rib-eye. All were excellent. Great flavors, nicely plated, moist and well seasoned.
The waiter was fairly attentive and offered us another round of beverages because our entree was delayed.

What a disappointment! Don't be me... don't fall for the marketing, don't think that there is any fairness in the reservation system... neither is true. First, the restaurant is very small, and much of the view, especially from the middle of the restaurant is obstructed by structural masonry. Despite its small size, there were available tables on a Saturday at 6:30p (the latest and last booking time). Idiot that I was... I woke up early, exactly one month in advance (when reservations open) to get a good table. Here's what you should know... there are only 2 tables for 2 people with the good views and these are outside the kitchen. All the other 2 person tables are in the middle of the restaurant between the 4 tops at the rail (with the view) or the raised booths. So, if you want a good table make sure you are 4 people, or you'll get stuck in the middle. Don't get me wrong, the had 2 people in the booths, but I guess it wasn't based on how far ih advance you booked or what you requested in Opentable. Food was ok, but nothing special. Service is what you'd expect from an 18% gratuity included - underwelming. Fried calamari appetizer was the best thing we ordered. Steak, branzino and prosciutto aren't worth a special mention. We had a pretty easy time getting up there, not as crowded as I thought it would be. Dress code isn't observed. We dressed for a nice evening out. But the table in shirts who were clearly walk ins got a better table than we did.

We had an excellent experience let’s face it with a view like that and good food it couldn’t be anything else. However you do pay way over the odds for it. We were shocked at the prices over 70$ for 2 beers and 2 gin and tonics and dinner for 4 was over 250$ we only had mains and a bottle of wine

The view was great, but the food was overpriced, undercooked and very limited selection. Overall, not worth the price, go see the Observation deck, skip the resturant.

We loved dining with the spectacular views of Manhattan. What was really disappointing was the poor quality of the food. I don’t know if they are limited in terms of the kinds of stove, ovens, grills to use but the ribs we had were dried out and did not look freshly made. The beans and red peppers that were served with my Brazino were canned and even the presentation was awful. My fish fillet was dry but looked oily, not grilled as expected, I have no idea how was it cooked... would not go to that restaurant if it was no for the views.

The experience of dining at the top of World Trade makes it worthwhile. Very noisy from the folks below but the energy is part of the experience. Two tips about reservations.... if you make them in advance you are more likely to get a table right by a window. But also know that you need to add at least half an hour (during off tourist hours) or longer to get upstairs. You have to get in line with everyone going up to the Observatory and see a movie.

Bumpy start but recovered by the manager and server that took over. Nobody ever likes to be the server that has to pick up a table that’s been waiting for 20 minuets but Ali did a fabulous job and Megan took great care of us too. Way to recover the situation ladies!!!!

The restaurant at the Observatory is great if you're trying to impress a person who's never been to New York City before. The view is certainly wonderful (though hazy the day we went), and I suppose that's the majority of what you're paying for. I can't figure out otherwise how they can get away with charging nearly $20 for a piece of burrata and nearly the same for meatballs that were...well..fine.

Went for daughter’s 13th as we’re in NYC visiting from UK. Had announced this. Table was not ready for us, we were told bar was full so “come back in 15mins”! We had already visited the observatory since you have to buy tickets to go up to restaurant. So we went back down to observatory for another lap. When table was ready they wished my husband a happy 30th, we had to tell them no it’s our daughter’s 13th! They brought me watermelon soup when I ordered Burrata so husband had to wait for my starter to get there before he could eat his! At end of meal ordered a dessert only to get a candle in it for our daughter but rules of the Tower are that that’s not possible, which is fine but as I wrote this as my special request months ago it might have been nice to be told ahead of time, we wouldn’t have ordered the pana cotta covered in vinegar!

I ordered Salmon. It was over cooked and I had the chef redo it. Had to ask for bread. Chardonnay was delightful. Menu was expensive. I would recommend anyone visiting One World Trade and paying to go to the observatory deck, stop by for a glass of wine to enjoy the view.

You have to buy an observatory ticket for each person in your reservation. We did not realize this until we arrived, so we were forced to buy the Priority Access at $65/person.

Allow plenty of time to get to the restaurant. You are required to go through the observatory tour process which takes approximately 30 minutes.

Little things like:

Paying to go to the Trade Center just to go for dinner
No steak sauce??

We booked a table after our VIP Master Card tour for food and cocktails. We were an hour early as the tour didn’t take as long as expected but were still accommodated with a table. The food was beyond our expectations with a lot of choice. We read a few reviews saying the food was expensive but we didn’t think so, for the food we had and the quantity of the servings we thought the pricing was more than reasonable. Our waiter Andrew/Andre was exceptional, he recommended wine pairings and made us feel so welcome. He encouraged us to stay and enjoy the sunset view, he even surprised us with some complimentary sorbet. All together we were in the restaurant over 4 hours and were never made to feel it was time to go. I could not fault anything and would absolutely recommend dining if you are visiting the tower.
