Overall, the dinner & dancing evening felt like an expensive tourist gimmick.

Pros: Ambiance is undeniably lovely. Live band and dancing was fantastic. Appetizers and dessert were delicious.

Cons: Service was terrible. The waiter mixed up most of the food service despite a pre-fix menu. First I was asked if I wanted flat or sparkling water. I asked for sparkling and got flat when he returned almost 10 min later. I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the first course (chicken) and was told it was no problem to have a salad instead. But he brought the chicken. He was gone so long that we had to flag another waiter to get a salad for me. The second course was a lobster cavatelli. The pasta, asparagus, and scallions were all over cooked. The lobster itself was fine. For the main course (choice of beef or fish), my table ordered two fish, but we were brought two beef and once again had to wait for the correct dishes to be brought out.

Ultimately, better food and service can be found for much less. Likewise, you can find great music and dancing for much less as well. It's cute to be able to say you've eaten and danced at the Rainbow Room, but understand that that's really what you're paying for.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday, although it's pricey I'd recommend anyone do it at least once for a special occasion, it's a great experience you both won't forget.
