Service was mediocre at best
Visit to the city for tree lighting.
The service for our annual Christmas breakfast was superb: warm and efficient!
We are sad Rock Center Cafe will be gone soon😢
21st Birthday Celebration, lunching at Todd English
Not a good value gif the price. I was not told ahead of time about the price fix menu.
I love this restaurant. I am SO disappointed it is closing.
Our granddaughters loved watching the ice skating while they ate. We adults had the price fix dinner — all the food was excellent!
ITS TIME THIS PLACE CLOSED. ITS TIRED OUT OF DATE SHABBY AND EXPENSIVE. THE FOOD IS OKAY NOTHING SPECIAL BUT OKAY. THIS PLACE NEEDED A REFURB AND NEW MENU AND WAITING STAFF THAT ACTUALLY CARED. THEY ALL KNOW ITS GOING TO CLOSE ON THE 5TH JAN 2020. I FEEL BAD FOR ALL THE MANAGERS AND FRONT DESK HOSTESSES ETC AS THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHETHER THEIR COMPANY WILL RECRUIT THEM TO ANOTHER ONE OF THE COMPANY'S RESTAURANTS AND JUST LET THEM ALL GO. NICE XMAS PRESENT. THEIR SISTER RESTAURANT THE SEA FOOD ONE ACROSS THE ICE RINK IS ALSO GOING. I AM SURE THE NEW LEASEHOLDERS WILL BE MORE ON THE BALL WITH WHAT IS GOING ON TODAY AND WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
Booked for breakfast whilst in New York. Had an enjoyable breakfast, waiter could have been more civil.
My family and I come every Christmas season and I with friends. Come for dinning .. we truly love the food .. we will sorely miss the cafe sea grill and la cuccina
To expensive, the food wasn’t delicious
Really enjoyed the server.
Amazing, excellent service, excellent place!! The food was good
Completely let down. I made reservations for Thanksgiving night 945, there were several empty, dirty tables yet it took them 10 minutes to seat us. We sat an extra 10 minutes at the table waiting for a server. Our server had been passing our table the whole time, not one time saying 'give me a second' and when he finally came to the table he was noticeably annoyed. I told him we were not having a good experience and he says' so are you going to order or not?'. We told the manager on duty and he was of no help either so we left. We loved the location but weren't willing to pay $85 a person for horrible service. We ended up walking over to Rue 57 and had a great time
Thanksgiving dinner, and it was delicious! Our server was spectacular and so attentive!
Poor service, loud, a mill
Thanksgiving Day 2019.... it was very busy, we started out with drinks from the bar and finished with the most excellent meal..All staff were helpful and attentive... great window view of the ice skating rink...
Our visit was lovely, we enjoyed the thanksgiving day meal! We ordered table shares which weren’t as good as the main meal, we didn’t get a table next to the ice rink which would have been nicer (it was the reason we had booked) we were seated next to a window looking onto the rock centre concourse with passing shoppers which was a bit disappointing. Had we have had better seats and the table shares been nicer I would have given 5 stars.
Food was good, location is great, service was good, but make sure you are charged correctly!! I reserved a table for two for Thanksgiving lunch from Open Table. The Open Table reservation Page reads: ”$55 for lunch and $85 dinner”. (see attached) To make sure, I called the restaurant before going there and they confirmed that if our reservation is before 3:45 pm we will be charged for lunch price. Although my reservation was for lunch at 2:30pm, they charged us for $85 each!!!!!! Would appreciate a response from the management.
Outstanding food and atmosphere!! Sitting by the window overlooking the skating rink was a plus!! Thanks!!
It was a nice experience, but we were all really crammed in! We would have loved a table closer to the rink, but seemed those were left to those with smaller parties...seemed odd to set it up that way. Overall, the food wasn't too bad, but price made me feel like it should have been better. It was a new experience to Thanksgiving dinner - and really appreciate all those who worked that day to try to make our time memorable.
It’s was nice full but nice ! Food was ok a bit overpriced !!! Service super nice and friendly
Great place! Made reservation and was seated quickly. Great view of the ice rink. Great experience
70 mins for wet salad and cold hamburgers. Don’t go. Only tourist will be in this poor excuse of a restaurant.
Poor service, food decent, super loud, overpriced
Tourist trap. Terrible quality, expensive food. Nice view.
Service very slow ! Menu selection very poor !
Vies were outstanding!
Such a great view of the Rockefeller Ice Skating rink! The food was great and the wine special they had going on was a good deal!
Very tourist-y spot. But the food was mostly delish. Enjoyed the view of the ice skating rink from the table by the window. It was the perfect ambiance- festive!
Fun experience. Watching the ice skaters rink side was cool. We even saw a marriage proposal. The food was very good but the service was way too slow.
Truly magical. Would definitely return.
Made a reservation weeks in advance for my parents to have breakfast at a window table while watching their grandchildren skate on the rink. The hostess was curt and unhelpful in procuring the window seat. She told them it would be a "long wait" for a window seat, so they settled for a row off of the glass. Within 10 minutes a window seat became available but they had already begun service at their table. The situation could have been managed much more thoughtfully by simply providing information and choice with a polite attitude. We won't be back.
We had a beautiful table right by the window and enjoyed the view of ice skaters while we ate. The atmosphere is so much fun and the service was terrific. Unfortunately the food is underwhelming. My Caesar Salad consisted of a very tasty chicken breast on a bed of limp, wilted iceberg lettuce with a dressing that was in no way discernible as “Caesar”. Similarly my daughter had a delicious piece of salmon with disappointing sides. While we were obviously there mostly for the view and experience, and as NYers we know the spot caters to tourists so doesn’t need to count on return customers, it just seems unnecessarily lazy to serve a wilted salad.
This cafe never disappoints. I have been coming here since I was a child and it is always a pleasure
Prices were very high for the quality of food served. Burgers were dense and not as tasty as they looked. Salad was good but shrimp lacked flavor. The kids meals were astronomically priced for what you received. We went here more for the location and the fact the kids could watch the ice skaters.
Great atmosphere...sat by the window watching the skaters go by... Good food. Great service.
Had dinner with family visiting from out of town after attending the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Our waiter was wonderful, very helpful, very nice. The food is way over priced and the quality was average. Two had the steak, it was cold, tough and tasteless. We’ve eaten here in the past and found that the quality has deteriorated.
Our dinner table was ready in under 10 minutes of our reservation time. We were given a great table, next to the glass, to enable my granddaughter a great view of the ice rink. Our server was prompt in providing us great drinks and food. Altogether a great time was had by all.
