Last year we loved Rock Center Cafe and made reservations to enjoy it again while on vacation to NYC. This time, the server was kind and funny but was overwhelmed with serving too many tables. My daughter and my entree came out almost immediately even before water or drinks were served. My husband’s entree came out about 15 minutes later. Also, large tv screens were spread amongst the patio creating more of a bar environment than a nice family dining experience. The setting is lovely. Hopefully, we will have better luck next time!
Great place and the service was outstanding. Great late night spot.
Very much enjoyed with the family.
The service was awful and the food was mediocre and a tad pricey. An app, two entrees (salmon and a sandwich) and four drinks were all average for $150.
I had the Eggs Bene and really enjoyed it!! Love the atmosphere too, and of course the location could not be better!
I love going here but the food was just not as good as before. Staff wasn’t friendly or attentive. We sat without drink refills for along time and service was very slow.
The food was fair; I could take it or leave it. I go for the atmosphere. You can’t be lunch at Rockefeller Center!
Waiter disappeared hostess handled check. Kids enjoyed chicken fingers wanted dessert but never had opportunity. To order. Adults had house salad with shrimp it was fine. Apparently waiter was working both restaurant and happy hour.
We had a wonderful dining experience at Rock Cafe. The food and service were excellent!
The food was good. Not the absolute best but definitely good. The location is amazing and the cheesecake was great!
Went for breakfast after the summer concert on the plaza. Convenient and good food.
First time in New York - great experience!
The service was okay. The food was not good. The flavors weren’t tasty and the food was just blah. Not a place i would recommend.
My lunch was the best in New York City. However, the lemon tart was not very good.
Fun place to bring visiting friends from out of town. The food is not unique but the location makes up for it. Service is friendly and fun.
The Sardinian Pig Roast was a disappointing experience. The marketing was great, but the pork was not tasty; other items on the menu were merely acceptable. The service was off. Consequently, I will not consider any future special-themed dining events.
Great restaurant - first trip to New York and so happy to find this place! Only comment, the food portions were a little small but yummy so I wanted more!
Had a wonderful Fathers Day brunch with my husband. Service was great, food delicious and great location. We ate outside by the waterfall and really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend!
The food was great. The service was awesome. Great view when sitting outside. Great place to have breakfast or brunch. Servers are very accommodating. Would recommend.
We loved the outdoor seating in the summer. Sitting outside next to the fountain was great.
Always a lovely place to spend a lunch hour outdoors without breaking the bank. It’s a fair mix of suits and tourists. Wine is reasonably priced and the menu is smart, with something for everyone. Service is quite accommodating. Don’t go for the food — it’s passable — go for the weather, a bottle of rose, and Prometheus.
I often take my friends there if they coming visit NYC. The service and location are very good. Unfortunately, the food is deteriorating.
Great outdoor ambiance...good food, music and drinks.
I ordered the Chicken Milanese was good wish it was hotter. guacamole was delish. Drinks were okay could have been better. overall an 7 1/2 out of Ten.
The hosts were to busy talking.....and the waiter was very condescending and rude! I have been here on numerous occasions and never this disappointed. The feel was as if it was under new management
Great place for brunch. They had a jazz band playing and the waterfalls going so it was a really nice setting.
The food was great and so were the drinks.
It was nice to sit and have a view of Rockefeller Center. We had the choice of dining inside or out. We chose inside because of the weather. Service was wonderful. Our server offer great choices for not only food but cocktails as well. We came here right after a show. Short walk from the Longacre Theatre
Nothing special. We got the food we paid for
The service was awesome. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic. The food was mediocre but we were there mostly for the atmosphere.
The hostess did not submit our reservation to OpenTable after we honored the reservation. This seems to be an ongoing issue and is frustrating.
Food is good, the best thing about it is it’s location, right at the heart of the Rockefeller Center
Restaurant was empty. Only a handful of tables were occupied. We had a table for 2 by the windows. A large party came in and was seated right next to us at a round table almost on top of us. Thinking they had a reservation. If that were the case, why were we seated where we were and not at one of the other empty tables for 2 near the windows?
The service here is always excellent. I never feel rushed. The restaurant is lively but not noisy. It’s a lovely place to savor a good meal and escape the bustle of Midtown’s streets just above you.
Great vegan food option in Midtown at Rockefeller.
Excellent service and attention. The food was well prepared and tasty!!
We had a business lunch where one of our diners got delayed. The wait staff was very patient yet attentive. The delay caused us to have a short turn from order to check. Again, no problem. Instantly our food arrived, and we had plenty of time to enjoy it.
Place is good, well located and convenient!
Easy to get a table.
Might be a little too overpriced to the food/service you get though
Waitress was courteous but extremely busy. Guacamole was not good at all. It tasted rancid. Manager handled very quickly and was very amicable about the process.
Ambience and location is excellent. Food is fine but not extraordinary. Service would be perfect if only the servers or the manager on site would not hover around excessively - it made us feel rushed to finish our meal and get out. It was raining during our visit and the restaurant is almost empty. We wanted to relax and finish our discussion but felt that we need to leave immediately. I would recommend this place only for the location and nice ambience.
Food and service was wonderful. The menu choices were limited and I thought it was very expensive.
Very disappointed with their service. Group of us dined there for my colleague’s Farewell lunch, because Del Friscos Grille was not available. It was a beautiful day so decided to seat outside. Their service was very slow as our waiter took 45 minuets to take our orders. I have been there few times in the past after work, but I have never experienced anything like this. Food was good but I will definitely avoid dine there for business lunch.
