Enjoyable evening great views of New York, food good except fries came when we had nearly finished main course. Good atmosphere but not the place for a quiet romantic meal. Would still recommend but you need to book if you want to eat.

If you’re visiting NYC, this is a great spot for drinks and spectacular views. I would recommend reservations after 730pm to avoid the after work happy hour crowd. The drinks are typical NY prices but nicely mixed. Highly recommend it!

I made the reservation months ago and we seated in a corner that had only a partial view for my guest and no view for me. Very disappointed as this was her first visit and I had really talked this restaurant and view up.

Terrible place to eat all they are interested in is cramming as many people as they can in one room, to eat you sit around the edge of a room full of drinkers.

Nothing like what the website shows, we didn’t even stay to eat because we couldn’t even hold a conversation and I’m so disappointed as it was my wife’s 40th birthday and this place ruined it, change the website and tell the truth about the venue your more worried about money then comfort to eat, would never ever go to this place again when we return to NYC such a let down

Would recommend for the view just not the food. What we had was nice but nothing special. The main options were limited. Not great value for money but I guess you're paying for the view

Our experience at Bar SixtyFive was fun and memorable. Arrival was well organized, but overall service a little slow. The room has a pleasant dining club atmosphere, good drinks and we'd order the lemon tart again without thinking twice. Last but not least, the NYC view is spectacular and will stay with us forever!

Amazing place to have food, and at an amazing value. I went for the steak, haven't tasted better in my life and I frequent to France. Girlfriend had a chicken salad. Was perfect. You pay to go up normally, so if you take that price off the meal you're winning with the food. Just hope it's as good for you!

Service was just not good enough.
I ordered a bottle of wine... for which the glasses turned up but not the wine ! Twice I was asked if our glasses could be taken away. Both times I had to explain they had not yet been used - the wine eventually arrived. I asked the waitress a couple of questions about the menu but didn't get a knowledgeable answer, she didn't know much about the menu at all. No napkins... I asked if we could have two - they arrived several minutes after we had both finished dining.
Service and quality food make a place, Bar 65 only had one of these...

I took my wife to the Rainbow Room 29 years ago - for her 20th birthday. We were in NY to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and I booked a reservation at Bar SixtyFive. She was very surprised and thrilled. We had a wonderful seat by the windows facing the Empire State Building. The food was outstanding. We started with three shared plates and of those we loved the warm olives with Marcona almonds and the quinoa sliders. For our entrees, my wife had the grilled cauliflower over risotto and I had the bucatini. They were scrumptious. My wife greatly enjoyed the Cabernet she had from Seneca Lake. Many of the beer and wine offerings are from NY State. It was a wonderful evening and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Bar SixtyFive and plan to return!

Es la decepcion mas grande que he tenido en mi vida y mira que salgo cada fin de semana,
Hacia mucho frio , un ambiente tetrico , yn servicio de lo peor, al llegar y darnos la carta, no pudimos leer apenas habia luz y al pedir algo para leerla nos dijeron que es lo que habia y que si no podiamos leerla nos aguantásemos, despues le pedimos recomendacion y nos ignoraba como nunca me habia pasado, la comida muy mala no sabia ni a que sabia,,,,,llevo muchos años y nunca habia dado una recomedacion negativa pero no quiero que nadie pase el mal trago que tuve que pasar.....

Lovely view. But food very overpriced and not of good quality the experience of dining so high was amazing quite dark in there but that’s ok as I expect if it was lighter the view wouldn’t of been so good. We would of like to take photos but as tables were there we felt like we were intruding on people’s dining experience. Would recommend it though but for drinks not food .

Service was great. Not super excited about salty potato chips accompanying the caviar in addition to an aggressive truffled side cream?? Caviar was lovely. Blinis and creme fraiche are a much more palatable choice if people actually want to taste the caviar... I did...

It was my second visit to Bar Sixty Five and on both occasions I have enjoyed thoroughly enjoyable evenings.
The venue and views certainly speak for themselves and the staff were as always polite and attentive.
The experience was once again full of positives as expected and if I had to add any negative feedback it would simply be that we had to wait several minutes for cutlery to be brought to our table before we could enjoy both our starter or entree and it seemed that the smart casual dress code requirement as advertised wasn't be strictly upholded with many guests aloud to bend the rules somewhat.
