Wahnsinns Ausblick, gute Weine und sehr leckeres Essen. Preise der Location angepasst. Mann bezahlt ja hier auch den Ausblick mit. Mit Reservierung sehr zu empfehlen. Schwupp an der Schlange vorbei und im Lift nach oben.

It was wonderful for my wife and me to be back at the Rainbow Room where we were engaged over 30 years ago. We had a lovely window-side table. Our server was very friendly although a bit stretched given the number of tables she was covering. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and, in the case of the popcorn on the cob, overwhelmed by the quantity of the appetizers we ordered. The smoked eggplant was excellent. It was a blustery day with short burst of sunshine. This serendipitously resulted in an intense rainbow for a couple of minutes. Given the number of food choices, we plan to come back when we don't have other plans for dinner.

Eine sehr schöne Bar, die Bedienungen waren sehr freundlich. Die Essensauswahl ist überschaubar, wir hatten Antipastiplatte, sehr wenig Brot dabei. Wir hatten leider keine Sicht, Nebel. Haben aber die Zeit dort trotzdem genossen. Würde sie auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, aber vorher reservieren.

I made my reservation on line which was easy. They emailed me to confirm and were responsive when I replied back with questions. The atmosphere was very nice and of course, had a great view. The greeters and hostesses were very welcoming and kind. Our waitress was ok, she seemed more like she was tolerating us than necessarily being interested in making our experience great. It is a complete tourist scene...didn't look like anyone was a native New Yorker, so I guess that gets a little old for the wait staff. However, when the menu is priced as it is, I would think that would include very good service (not even great service) with a smile.

Friendly and helpful staff direct you where to go. Organised lines for elevators so are therefore short.
Atmosphere in the bar is chilled and noise levels are good so you can hear what the person you're with is saying but there is still a buzz.
Views are stunning! You can go out to the deck to take phptos etc when you want during your time there so long as you tell your server (so they know you haven't just upped and left for good).
Cocktails are good although service took a little longer than you would expect.
If you order 'Chips & dip' as a snack - be in for a fun surprise! It's not what you'd expect.

Fun experience. Not what I expected. Very loud with all the people mobbed in the center of the bar, but they were having a good time. Not good for taking pictures because of the plexiglass. Service was great and the manager stopped by to apologize for having to move our reservation.

I have visited New York a few times but have never gotten up to the Rainbow Room/Bar SixtyFive. This experience did not disappoint! The views of the city are fantastic. Some reviews said there was only one wall of windows but we could see out three sides. We only had drinks but the tables on either side ordered food and it looked wonderful. The presentation was beautiful and they raved about the taste. I will definitely be visiting there again on future trips and will recommend that friends and family do the same!
