    They closed the restaurant and didn’t call or advise me to let me know. I got there with my fiancé happily to find out they closed the restaurant. A simple phone call or a message would have sufficed.

    We were so looking forward to visiting and eagerly made our way across town to make our reservation time. When we and 10 or so others turned up we were met by a closed door. Now I understand that in this challenging times some venues did chose to close and I have no squabble with that, it was the complete lack of communication that was galling. A simple email or text message would have sufficed. They clearly couldn’t even bother doing that. Other places where we had reservations managed to communicate if they were open or not.

    Did not allow entry and did not inform us ahead of time. The bar was closed and we were only told we could not move forward with our dinner reservation upon arrival. Even now, 6 hours on, we have received no information on the matter.

    Service was good, drinks were average (expensive!) I found the whole thing a bit underwhelming though. I was also a little disappointed that there was no where to take photos besides the area where people are sat by the bar. There is a huge room to the side that was empty but was roped off, this could easily be an extra room for people to drink in?

    The view was spectacular! We baked Rockefeller and it was ok. The waitress was very accommodating as far as what to order in the wi r selection. She even brought 3 samples. They had a special wine for National Womens Day but had already ran out. It was worth going there for the view and the staff.

    The view was breath taking, the restaurant was lovely the food was overrated and very expensive for what we had. But I get you are paying for the view and the experience. Sad end we shared a dessert and there was paper in it gave it back and it was taken off the bill and one glass of wine very disappointing in the end.

    Cool place, but we were not aware that they close so early for Friday night . We were sat at 1040pm and 1045, we were told that we had to order food because kitchen was closing. We were rushed to eat and be out there. I work in a restaurant business, and our kitchen does not close until about 15mjn after we close. Food was delicious, service was good, besides the rush part.

    I brought my 22 year-old niece for her first NYC trip and had a wonderful time. The view is spectacular, the host was lovely, our server was a B+. What bothered me was that the website suggests a dress code, which makes sense at this price point. While some were dressed as suggested, there were several in hoodies, torn jeans and offensive language on their sweatshirts, which made the dress code moot.

    My wife said she's wanted to go to the Rainbow Room for 50 years. We made reservations for 4:30pm , were seated at the perfect window table and had excellent attentive service. All wines and beers are local sourced. The cocktail and spirits list is extensive. Dessert was absolutely fabulous, the apple and raspberry sorbets were excellent! Bar65 should be on everyone's "must experience" list while in New York.

    We booked this well in advance as a special dinner on the night I proposed to my girlfriend. When I booked it, I requested a window seat, which was not initially provided, but we were moved when we asked again. The price of the food is more than our average meal out, but considering the context and location, it was a perfect way to celebrate our engagement.

    First time in the Rock. Great food, great service, great value and the view is unreal. Only downfall is they don’t commit to the dress code. It’s a Special Place which warrants adherence to the old style.
