The staff, from the moment we arrived at the bottom of the escalator, to the primary and then final check-in station, were extremely friendly and very professional. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The cocktails were delicious. Our waiter was very friendly, prompt with service, and helpful with menu selections. The views were spectacular! Although I have made it to 75 years of age and never been there before, I intend to make a point to return!

Celebrated a birthday with my girlfriend here. The host could behave not been nicer seating us comfortably until a table
Opened up outside.
Once outside the views are fantastic!!
Food options are just okay, could be a few more traditional
Options. On the small plates but all in all our food was good.
The big issue for us was the service.. everytime we needed something as minor as water it took forever to get someone or find our waiter. If I am asked to pay $65 per person minimum just to sit outside I would like proper service. Our waiter wasn’t interested..

We came to celebrate my daughters 21st Birthday so was a very special occasion. When I booked I specified I would like the terrace but understood it wasn’t guaranteed. We were offered the terrace, which was amazing. The service was a little slow outside, but they were very nice and attentive. Unfortunately the heavens opened so we had to come inside. It was a bit of a rush due to the rain, we were seated immediately in great seats. The atmosphere was fantastic inside. I think I almost preferred sitting there. The service was great, the food was good. They even did a special dessert with a candle for my daughter! The views are spectacular. I would highly recommend for any occasion, but almost definitely a special one!

Jean Marie, my waitress, was very helpful in helping me order the best of the best. I went with her recommendation of the Prime Ribeye and it was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! When I first arrived, there was a little bit of an issue with my shoes. I had called previously to ask if walking shoes were permitted as I was going to be walking around the city prior to me reservation. The gentleman said it was fine. Upon my arrival, I found my "tennis shoes" weren't allowed. Thankfully, the manager gave the approval to continue my reservation. I didn't get her name! Thank you for the experience! I had a great view of central park.

Bar 65 was recommended to us and wow it lived up to it - the views were amazing, the restaurant itself was outstanding, the food was beautiful although I don’t think the new burgers should be served on those silly plates but they were fantastic & very filling; the staff were so friendly & the outside seating is to die for. We had a fantastic evening thank you and we would definitely recommend Bar 65. Xxx

Beautiful view, ok food, profoundly inattentive service. Waited for the check for almost a half hour after obviously finishing our meal and drinks. A tremendous disappointment overall, with the ambiance being the only saving grace.

Would recommend outside dining. Views to die for and staff very attentive. $65 minimum spend per person for outdoor dining well worth the money and there for hours. Food reasonably priced given the prime location. $20 for champagne cocktail, $22 for a tequila. Fab experience!

Fantastic experience. We had a table outside and the weather was good. Glass panels around the exterior keeps winds at bay. We were seated immediately (had a reservation) and service was good. We went at 5:30PM on a Thursday and the bar filled up quickly.

This is a stunning venue. We were visiting NYC for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Unfortunately the weather was a bit marginal, so the outside seating was closed. We could understand why they manage the place this way, if both inside and outside were occupied and there was a shower or drop in temperature the interior would become unpleasantly crowded. There was ticket system for guests to go out onto the patio in intervals to prevent it being crowded. This meant that for the most part the wonderful views from our table were uninterrupted (looking downtown with the Empire State Building as the centrepiece). Although not the best food in town it was very good and we thought food and drink were decent value given the exceptional venue. Service was excellent and the staff friendly. Altogether a night to remember.

When we reached the restaurant we were informed that did not service at the patio outside although the weather was good. However they allowed to customers to go outside with drinks for taking pictures. As a result although we had a table watching empire state it was blocked! Our waiter lacked of skills and professionalism. The food was way below average. If you want to see the view I recommend to go for a drink(20$) and not dinner.

Excellent service and food. We requested a table by the window as it was a birthday celebration which we were pleased to have been given. Sadly it was such a drizzly overcast evening we could not see anything of the view but this was unfortunate due to the weather. The staff were very good and made us feel special. Thank you! We will definitely return if in NY again!
