We were on a short trip to NYC and I wanted to enjoy cocktails with a view. This was the perfect spot. Great service and atmosphere with amazing views.

This bar is beautiful and the views are spectacular. The drinks are pretty pricey but no more so than most other bars in nyc!
The food was nice enough but I felt there was limited choice.

Expensive and noisy. Go for the vibe, the view, and vino. Fun cocktails but the service was slow. They sat us at a table for two for four of us. They turned the small table so two of us sat on a bench seat and ate at an angle. Fun night for out-of-towners.

Bar Sixty Five at Rainbow room was recommended to us by a friend of a friend as a nice place to go for a drink and also get a great view of New York at night. We were visiting NY from England to celebrate our Ruby Wedding anniversary. The bar area itself was very nice and the views spectacular. I appreciated the fact that we were able to go outside and take photos before leaving. However we found the bar very noisy, the lighting was so low it was difficult to read the menu and service was slow. 3times our waitress walked past our table saying “I’ll be with you in a minute”. She was very pleasant but we’d had better service elsewhere in the city. We had a shared platter and that was nice, but at $28, along with paying $17 for a glass of wine, we feel the whole place is overpriced for what the package is. We did appreciate the chocolates given to us after our meal as an anniversary present but overall the whole experience was a bit of an anticlimax.

Service was poor. Waited almost 1 hour just to get a burger. We had to ask for water. We asked for ketchup three times, and we got it when our plate was empty. The food is okay, the views are great, so it's unfortunate.

I loved the view from the observation deck. The drinks were strong and very good. Sadly, the service was terrible! We enjoyed a few cocktails and decided we would have a piece of famous New York cheese cake and a coffee for our first night in the city. We got the coffee but the cheese cake never came! I would still recommend a visit even though my food experience wasn’t positive and the drinks were tragically overpriced the view was worth the visit!

It was zoo and no professional people who work at this place except bartenders. They are very professional. We had to wait until we have table even we had a reservation and need to wait another 40 m. to get outside and gave it up and left within 20 m. I never come back and i can go another place in NYC which I live.

I loved this place because of the view. The service was really bad, the waiter didn't even said his name, not very warm or even welcoming, also the hostess was really cranky and arrogant. We had some wine and a burger which was awesome to be honest. But the service was not outstanding and it's such a shame because the place and the view deserves a better service. By the way, I specifically wrote on my reservation that it was a birthday dinner and NOTHING happened... thanks about that...

A “destination” that needs to be experienced at least once .
New York lights sparkle.
The menu, both drinks and menu are expensive, but not more than other NY spots with less ambience, and certainly not the views.

We came here because the reviews say it's one of the best views of the city. And it is. Unfortunately it rained and we were able to sit outside. Butz still great view.
The service was bad. Didnt really check on us for second round, how our food was. We went thru half of our meal no napkins.
I for 20 dollar drinks and 15 dollar fries, I expect the mentioned above as the bare minimum.
