The experience was nice. It seems as though people were way too packed in for maximum general addmision. I had reservations that were much delayed for my taste with bar 65 only giving you 15mins. Overall, a nice experience.

I booked in for my partner's 30th. The server was lovely and the food delicious but, my 2nd cocktail ordered never arrived and it was very loud so, we couldn't really enjoy a conversation. Unfortunately, the terrace was closed so we weren't able to take a nice picture at the top of the occasion either.

Was squashed onto a table that was for 2 ppl but 4 of us had to sit there, had to eat food sitting on an angle, not enough room on table. Service extremely slow, waited over an hour for food. Barman very nice, good drinks. Waitress nice enough but she had to many tables to serve. Very loud and busy. They fit to many ppl in.
Couple next to us walked out, they had been waiting so long.
Food was lovely tho.

The waitress who served us was I am sorry to say rather snobby. The service itself was only okay as was the food. However some of the staff have an attitude? it is very dark and noisy and this means a poorer experience.
Why have such a view if it is not acceptable to take a photo of it (balcony was closed)

So much fun! I enjoyed trying the different drinks from the 5 boroughs. Our server was spot on. The pumpkin and whiskey fondue was delicious and a generous portion. And the view was amazing. Also, the restroom was clean and well stocked.

Our original booking got cancelled and moved to the next night. When we arrived, our party was not allowed in, on account of my 13 month old being with us. When I made the reservation, I made it 100% clear we will have a child with us- hence why the booking was as early as possible

Service was great. Cocktails weren’t anything special @$20 each. Food portions were small but tasty! ($9 chowder was a total of four tablespoons.) View was amazing! We had a lovely unobstructed view of the Empire State Building.

The ambiance was very nice, especially during the holidays. We did not have a view because it was raining and foggy outside but I’m sure it would have been amazing. Service was slow and getting our waitress to bring the bill took forever, which almost made us late for our show. AND, one of my pet peeves, she pointed out the gratuity section. Ugh.

We had an 8:15 booking but had to wait for our table. Once seated we chose our food and drinks. The waitress then came back and told us if we needed more food than what we ordered we had to do it straight away as the kitchen was closing. We were also told that we should order dessert as the kitchen was closing! All very rushed and the staff were cleaning up around us while we were still eating! Couldn’t wait for us to leave and overall very disappointing. We should have been advised that the latest table booking should perhaps be 7:30 however we were allowed to book a later table. Won’t be rushing back.

The most breath taking views at night which you could view and take pictures of whilst waiting for food to arrive. Was a shame that we were not notified that balcony had a closing time, so only had a brief moment To take pictures.
Food was honestly amazing, although overall generous with salt (which is not to my personal liking) flavour combinations of pretzel with pumpkin fondue and lobster bratwurst were fantastic.
Was however very disappointed to find the actual restaurant closed and we were simply seated in a cordoned off area of the bar with noisy people standing over your shoulder watching you eat. I’m spending a fair amount of money on food so expect a relaxing and quiet atmosphere to also follow suit which it certainly did not.
None the less waiter was very polite and made sure we were as happy as possible. When you weigh up price of food with the views, it is very fairly priced. Would recommend but would ensure you go on a day the restaurant is open to avoid sitting in bar!

The dress code should be clearer when booking as many in attendance seemed confused about casual vs. smart-casual, and this effects the overall ambience of a beautiful location!
