    Booked well in advance but still waited about 20 minutes. Waiters were friendly but not all of them managing demand well. Charlie (manager?) was great. Ensured we were seated asap and moved to the area with the best view as soon as it was free, and very happily took our photo. Stunning view of Empire State Building.
