Went here for my anniversary and ordered the price-fixed special that included the Empire State building tour. I was not expecting anything great, for what I paid, but it was fantastic! Great service (no rushing) and food selections. We shared all the dishes and loved every bite.

Excellent, dommage que le serveur ait exagéré sur le pourboire 30$!!! Abusé
Le serveur nous a couru après pour réclamer!
Après c’ Un excellent restaurant, cuisine fine, viande délicieuse.
Si vous visitez l’empi State bulding, l’entree communique avec le restaurant!

We were visiting from Australia and our trip coincided with my birthday, so I was thrilled to be able to spend it at The Empire State Grill/Building. My favourite movie is "An Affair To Remember".

The staff were friendly and efficient. The setting and decor was beautiful. The food unfortunately was a let down. I ordered a crab cake and it had no crab in it , likely contained haddock or cod but not crab. My boyfriend ordered the spaghetti which was also disappointing. The desserts were nice as was the wine and bread before the meal but not sufficient enough for me to recommend this restaurant or visit it again in future.

title: 33th st. does not mean 33th floor

State Bar & Grill is a very intimate restaurant.
The restaurant was very quiet and elegant and Staffs were very friendly and kind, and food were very elegant and delicious.

But My family were some disappointed.
Because It's my 1st trip to New York and my family have expected to eat dinner with looking down at the city nightscape on high(upper) floor of the Empire state building.
It was my mistake.
The restaurant was located at 33th st. of the Empire state building.
33th st does not mean 33th floor but located 1st floor of the empire state building.
So my family could not appreciate nightscape during eating dinner.
Except for that, State bar & Grill was intimate restaurant.

I booked my wife and myself into here on the back of seeing so many recommendations on Facebook.
They weren't wrong! Lovely atmosphere topped off with superb food delivered with just as superb service from Maysie our server for the evening.
Nothing was or seemed to much trouble from the beginning to the end.
Miss this restaurant and its will be a huge loss to you.

Being at the foot of the Empire State Building makes the State Grill an ideal location to dine. The service was outstanding with a wide choice of food. We chose the steak and were not disappointed. One of the best I have ever eaten.

I had dinner at this restaurant,with a couple of friends,after touring the ESB,the evening of 9/8/17. We bought the set meal tickets,it was excellent,above our expectations in every way. We noticed the servers were very friendly and accommodating ( there was a family dining with small children)and the menu had more than enough choices. I will most definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

Oscar our server was very nice, he was professional when out steaks came out cold. We didn't appreciate the woman mgr. trying to make an excuse as to why they were cold. They she took them back & when we received them they were not much better. She did comp our drinks to make up for it. Oscar apologized even though it was not the mans fault. I would go back because the blackened tuna was very good & the quality was good.

FOOD IS CONSISTENTLY GOOD BUT SERVICE IS CONSISTENTLY SLOWER THAN SLOW, WHICH IS NOT GOOD WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO HAVE A QUICK BUSINESS LUNCH AND IT TAKES AN HOUR TO RECEIVE YOUR ORDER.
