Valentine’s day, but when I made the reservation and looked at the menu everything looked perfect but did not know that there was a different menu for Valentine’s Day. and their Valentine’s Day menu only had three options which was very different than the menu it showed me online

Fabulous way to spend our last night in New York for our wedding anniversary, With amazing views. Staff were very professional and welcoming, with great recommendations. Our waiters were all amazing and accommodating.
The venue was a little noisy as there was a convention of some sort.
Also on leaving myself and my husband walked past the lift, we were quite unprofessionally chased by a lady who had initially directed us to the restaurant. Shouting loudly , you can’t go that way, it was quite embarrassing and actually took the edge of our wonderful evening , for our wedding anniversary. She was clearly trying to impress the people in the other rooms, but would definitely benefit from lessons in etiquette and customer service and made us feel quite awful.

Food excellent, drinks excellent, service at the table when we were seated excellent; service on arrival very poor, we were made to feel like intruders by the front desk staff who were so put out by having to find our reservation and only seemed to be interested in making sure we closed our bar tab before sitting down.

Stunning views ... Great Staff. I booked this as my Husbands 50th Birthday meal whilst we were in NY. I e-mailed the booking and requested a table overlooking the Empire State Building and they most definitely delivered. All the staff we met when we arrived said Happy Birthday to my Husband and made the whole evening very very special. Stunning views, Amazing food. Would recommend as a MUST DO.

Were seated for our reservations quickly. The Doctor No. Cocktail was very nice. Quinoa Sliders, Lobster Sliders, and Shrimp Cocktail were all yummy. The view was fantastic!

It's generally true that the greater the view... the worse the food & service, and that was our experience at Bar65. Phenomenal view, but bar food, and it takes a while to arrive.

El lugar de primer nivel, la vista de la ciudad es espectacular, los alimentos son deliciosos, pedimos 5 platillos diferentes y todos deliciosos, el servicio es muy bueno y la gente es muy amable, excelente lugar para ir con familia o amigos ya que tiene mesas para comer y sillas tipo bar para tomar una copa. Nos gusto tanto el sabor de los alimentos que al dia siguiente regresamos.

Great view, food okay, price as high as the building, and it isn’t easy to reach or get in, even with reservations! Still a great view. It was much nicer 30 years the first time I was there!

Perhaps the fact that we are tourists and are dressed in cold clothes, the impression was that we were not well attended, because right after eating, the attendant came with the bill without us even asking.

From our greeting on the lower floor to leaving the venue, the service was fantastic and the staff couldn’t do more to make our evening amazing. The food was delicious, would definitely recommend the burger. The views are spectacular and the atmosphere was fabulous. Other reviews made us worry before our visit but unsure how others have had a bad experience. Everything was great and we will certainly return again!

I had booked for my partner’s 60th birthday- he was wished a happy birthday when we arrived but I’d asked for a cake which never arrived

It was cold where we were seated, our food arrived sporadically and when we were presented with the bill the server was more interested in pointing out how much we should leave as a tip !

This was my third time at the rainbow rooms and I have enjoyed my other visits but I’m not sure I will go back- it was my partner’s first time and he was very unimpressed

Very disappointing

I have to say we were very disappointed in Bar SixtyFive - undeniably great location and killer views but service and food were average. Very slow and also forgot our appetisers....only real redeeming feature was that it was my wife’s birthday and I had mentioned that on our booking and it was a nice touch that they bought some small chocolates out at the end.

We had wanted to order desert but got fed up waiting for our server to come back to the table! Being in 30 Rock for your dinner was certainly an experience but if this was on the ground floor I would say don’t bother which says it all!

At a place as well-known as the Rainbow Room, I was surprised by how bad the service was. In spite of the room not being overly busy, waiters were very slow and rarely came over to our table. Overall, not what we had hoped to experience.

Bar SixtyFive was a fantastic place to dinner! The views are amazing! We had steak & it was amazing as well! Highly recommend! When I made reservations, I let them know we were celebrating my husbands bday and they didn’t forget...they brought bday dessert out to him! We made reservations at 4:30pm so we could have views during the day and at night after the sun set.
