The service unfortunately ruined our evening. We didn’t find our waitress to be very friendly nor she didn’t acknowledge we were celebrating my partners birthday. On the 2nd round of drinks we ordered, my drink was missing a straw which she said she will be right back with one. 5 mins later I’m still waiting and she comes back to the table only to collect empty glasses so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to remind her I’m still waiting on my straw. I had to then ask a waiter passing by for one which he came back straight away. She just was not interested or personable with us. We enjoyed the views and the food and drinks were good. But service definitely needs improvement. I think we just was unlucky having that lady who served us.

Food and drinks were delicious! We ordered 5 small plates between the two of us, which was plenty for dinner. The BBQ short ribs small plate was probably one of the best cooked meats we've had - amazing! Ambience was lovely, even though it was completely overcast so we couldn't enjoy the view of the city. Would definitely go back when I'm next in New York City.

Our server was very attentive and welcoming, knowledgable of both the food and drinks menu. Bar 65 is situated in such an iconic venue that it makes dinner and drinks that bit extra special. Unfortunately the weather was bad so we didn’t see much of a view... but that’s an excuse to visit again! Definitely a great option to experience the top of the Rock in more intimate surroundings. We went for 3 Little Plates that we’re larger than anticipated and had 4 cocktails; the bill was $140/ ~£100. Good value for the experience.

Really nice venue. The drinks are overpriced (of course) but it's still worth going up there to experience the view. I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was too.

I was there for my 13th anniversary. We got married there. We were turned away because we have children. I was appalled - especially since I was told they make exceptions to allow families in "all the time".

We were looking forward to eating here for the view. We arrived at 5:40 for our reservation. It took the server some time to come to us and we ordered at that time. We didn't get our meals until 6:50. When we did, we realized that the food was basic- not worth the price of a higher menu. I had to chase the server to ask her for the check. We also asked a young woman who was seating guests if she could take our picture. She seemed annoyed by this, responded in a minute, and then walked by us several times. I just wouldn't recommend going here. If you want a view, go to One Dine or another restaurant.

Incredible views, lovely food. Service could’ve been a lot better considering the tips you are expected to give. Food was a reasonable price but drinks were quite expensive but given local and views was to be expected. Would definitely visit again for the good and views.

I would recommend but, it is fairly expensive for what we had! If you are wanting food the options are limited.

The staff are friendlyish .. but because it's so busy they come they and go! I did feel a bit of an annoyance when I asked if we could have the cocktail menu back for out 2nd drink and baring in mind we paid $80 for 2 drinks you would think they'd be a bit more obliging ?

It rained so we could not enjoy the view.
For the rest it’s definitely not worth going.
Interior from the 80s and loud atmosphere. Drinks ok but nothing special.

The view and atmosphere was amazing! Food was good and drinks were also good. Unfortunately the service was pretty awful. I’m not sure if It was due to a private party that was also happening at the time of our dinner and all the focus was on them. But it took us 30 minutes just to get the dessert menu, another 20 for someone to take our order and 15 to get our check. Truly disappointed with the terrible service and lack of care. I get we were just 2 guest and not a party of 20 the rented the corner but we expect the same welcoming. Will not be coming back or recommending.

The french fries were not good....the dipping sauce was good. There was noise, but not horrible. A lady kept taking flash photos and we were blinded several times. It would have been nice if the wait staff had told her NOT to do that. My husband finally talked to her.

The waitress was so busy, she got to us when she could...

No one told her it was my birthday, and she was so busy....I just let it go.....

What happened to the elegant rainbow room?? And they have the nerve to post a sign that says that proper dress is required! Definitely should delete the rainbow room from their title in order to not be deceptive.

Can’t beat this location for the view. You can’t walk around as it is split into sections but stunning
Quiet enough to have conversations and order the popcorn as a snack- YUM

The air conditioning/heating was not functioning properly resulting in a draft running through the bar. I highlighted this to the staff but they were unable to resolve the issue in a timely fashion. In the end I had to leave the bar as I was too uncomfortable to enjoy my drink. The views were spectacular and the appearance of the bar was outstanding so felt like such a shame.

This is not the definition of fine dining. Looks expensive, price tag is expensive. Food is greasy, especially the burger bun.. we asked for a new burger bun which the waiter proceeded to lie about why it was so greasy and then when a second burger bun was brought out it too was greasy. The waiter then went on to talk behind our back and then when the manager stepped in to ask about our experience and explained the situation, nothing was done. Poor service, would not recommend to anyone.

So wonderful to see the NYC skyline and to have been given one of the best tables in the room. We planned this as a special occasion on our trip thru the US. We hav travelled from Australia and it was a very memorable experience.
Wonderful staff too.

Very loud. Crowded. Just not what you expected. It's just a bar on the 65th floor. Better food, better drinks elsewhere for better value. Just wasn't worth the hype.

We had 5:45 reservations on a Friday night for our anniversary. We had requested a "quiet" table. Ha! There wasn't one quiet table in the entire place.....as the person at the check in desk told us: It's a bar. sIt isn't quiet. The noise level was off the chart. The center of the room held hundreds of people and all appeared to be talking on the top of their lungs. My husband and I gave up trying to talk. The food was good but all 3 dishes were brought out at once. The tables are small so the waitress should have communicated better with the kitchen. It was very uncomfortable. If you want to talk, avoid a Friday night.
