    We made reservations online for 2:00pm. It was one of the choices. When we got to the restaurant we were turned away and was told that the kitchen closes at 2:00pm and they no longer take customers.

    Salmon was over cooked, ordered medium rare and it came out very well done. Coffee wasn’t hot. And the wait staff not attentive. The view of Central Park is lovely. The hotel needs to pay more attention to the restaurant.

    Open Table accepted my Park Room lunch reservation for 3people at 2pm Nov. 27th in the Park Lane Hotel on 59th St . My husband and I arrived at the restaurant on time with, our out of town guest who had just arrived and hour earlier. We were hungry and looking forward to a delightful lunch with our guest and enjoying the beautiful view of CP. We were greeted and told the restaurant closes at 2pm. I explained that Open Table had accepted our reservation for 2pm. He left and returned with the same answer. We were told to go to the bar and that the bar had the same menu. We proceeded to the bar. (Hum, same menu? only thing missing was a nice table....) Not at all what we had been looking forward to: we were seated looking at the bar waiter station and a TV screen. The meal was very good but our guest's French fries were cold - they were replace with hot ones. We paid the bill and left a very nice 25% tip. The next day after looking at the bill we found the bill was tip compri. We live in Manhattan we always leave a tip. I guess I should have know not to go to a tourist destination. I feel it is uncouth to make a fuss: Therefore, I did not whine, cajole, or make a scene when I was told there was no service. After all we were there to enjoy our guest. My expectations from a 4 Star hotel restaurant: I expect that under the circumstances, our reservation would have been honored. Regardless of the Open Table mix up or whatever the existing circumstance may be. I would also expect that Open Table would have the correct time available when a customer is making a reservation. I would expect that we would have been told at the time of the check being presented that it was tip compri. Sad to be so disappointed.

    Spectacular views of Central Park from nearly any table chosen. We had brunch here twice. The food is very good & there is something for everyone. Although one may feel it's pricey, it's all about the view here!! Will definitely return.

    Unfortunately it wasn’t up to par and is severely outdated in decor. This could be so much more and comes way short. Such a shame to have a glorious space like this and not even come close to its potential.

    We booked a Sunday brunch for holidays. On our arrival, there was a crowded event happening at the location despite our reservation. We failed to find a manager to discuss the situation, a guest participating the event asked us to leave. We called the reservation number, a lady informed us that all reservations moved to another place at the hotel. She was extremely unhelpful and failed to understand we wanted to eat at the specific place we booked. She did not offered any real apology. We had to find another spot for brunch last min. I say, this place does not live to any of the expectation, staff is not classy. Stay away!!

    The food is terrible. For $75 on Mother's Day, there is no fresh Juice or fruits like in most hotels. Cold cuts and hot food are very limited. The room is nice but the food is the worst I have had in this price range.,

    Where do I begin . We went here expecting a nice holiday brunch. What they failed to mention was they cut brunch off at 11. Who ends brunch at 11 on Christmas Eve ?! Pictures were deceiving , only two sad ornament displays in the entire dining room of shabby furniture , and un-set tables. The mirrored doors were shut until our 12 o'clock reservation time when they were unceremoniously opened by a waiter who said " all right , you can all come in now " and then walked away. No one brought each group to a table , no one checked for reservations . The waiter then gave us two menus because they didn't have enough menus for our group of 4. We asked for a drink menu and we're snarled at. Most unprofessional service I have ever encountered for a $300 bill. Don't just walk away from this restaurant , RUN !

    I received a confirmation for our reservation, but when we arrived there was no one around and the restaurant was empty. We had a hotel employee do some investigating and were told that the restaurant was closed due to a private event occurring later. Needless to say, we were not happy about the situation and our waste of time.

    this place allows reservation for lunch / brunch time on Sunday, but it doesn't actually stay open after 12PM. And the team acts like you are crazy to even mention that you have a reservation. Huge #fail for OpenTable, unfortunately.

    I suppose must one be suspicious of restaurants with great views. The view was a ten out of ten and the Dining Room elegant and quiet. That's where the good news ends. We arrived on weekday at 1;30 and was immediately told that we needed to have our order in by 2:00. The menu though not unreasonable had what I thought to be an odd selection. They had one of there specialties as vegetable ravioli. It was overcooked pasta in a soupy sauce. My guest had a pastrami sandwich that was bone dry. The service was cold and unconcerned. Fortunately the view was good along with the company. From now I will view Central Park from a different location.

    A scene in the new TV show "Vinyl" was shot in the Park Room...which seems great, except that the show is set in 1973 and the producers didn't change a thing. Sarcasm aside, the place seems very, very dated. Service was not horrible, but wasn't good. And the waiter wasn't friendly at all. My food was bad, although my friend said his was okay. So there are all the negatives. Any good news? Yes...the view is amazing. I was there in winter so we could see into Central Park. I suspect in summer it's a nicer view, although you probably can't see as much when the trees are covered in leaves. The dining room is quiet with large tables and a lot of space...which is very hard to find in NYC. So if you don't mind old furniture and grumpy waiters, you'll enjoy the view. I suspect if you set your expectations correctly you'll enjoy your meal, but if you have high expectations you will definitely be disappointed.
