The view ist outstanding. The Food is very good. Service was poor compared to international Standard at top Restaurants. Although we had a reservation it Tool 45 minutes until our table was ready - a no go at this price level. The service was like trainees would have their first day. View and food can compensate a little, but there is a lot of improvement needed to become a top dining address in NYC.

The view from the Restaurant is very nice. You look over the Times Square and other parts of the City. I was there by night, that was very nice.
The Restaurant is luxury, but not that a normal person can‘t pay.
To the three courses menue you geht to the starter bread and butter. The Food is very good.
The waiters are very friendly. My mom celebrate her Birthday there and gets one birthday cake for free.

Food was excellent but the service was mediocre. We ran out of water and sat there for a while to get our bill. Since the moment we sat down we felt ignored and forgotten about. The timing in between ordering from a simple drink to food, was awful . It was our 2 year anniversary and I regret I spent the special occasion there.

This place was amazing, I know it’s called the view but was a lot higher than I expected... but I did get a lot more view than I expected. The set menus is ample for any parties tastes there is something for every one. 3 courses for under a $100 and they NY strip steak was delicious and plenty of it. The staff could not do enough for you, this meal was for a birthday and anniversary.. and they looked after us.

100% we would all eat there again.

When I’d booked the table there was a vegan option for a guest. We realised that the menu had changed. We spoke to the waiter who was helpful. The best thing was the chef Thomas coming from the kitchen and made 3 courses catering for her. Thomas came out to explain every course and was extremely helpful, friendly & passionate about food! It made us feel special. We can’t thank him enough for the help and food. It was amazing!!!

Way over priced. Not only would I never do it again but I wouldn’t recommend it either. All the waiter could think of was “how much can I get this guy to buy so I can increase my 18% tip.” I can give numerous examples of his behavior but why bother. Lots of better restaurants in NYC in both price and food. Very poor waitstaff service. If you want the view, go to the lounge and have a drink.

Wanted to show my kids and wife a fun and unique time. We didn't get a table next to the window (we couldn't reserve this and would have had to wait an additional hour after our reservation before one came available). The price was exorbitant, the food was good and it was a fun experience. Won't do it again.

Do not eat here**


We were a party of 6 eating in the Al la carter restaurant on Monday the 25th November. The service we received was down right terrible. Food was tasty and decent enough but slightly over priced for what it was. But even if the food was terrible the staff wouldn't of known as they dropped the food off and weren't seen for another 20 minutes.

After multiple mistakes and bad service through out. The servers were talking next to the table about not getting the full service charge. I presume they even thought the service was not good enough. But the older women who had been 'serving' us for the meal. Said 'we are getting the 18% they are a table of 6' and laughed.

Would never go again feel like the location and the food was let down by this horrific service. She should get a new as she has clearly lost the any passion for serving people.

Save you money go to a proper restaurant and then go up one of the towers seperately.

Booked a table for dinner to celebrate my husband’s 50th as I wanted somewhere special. I requested a window table (but knew they couldn’t guarantee this) and we got one. The views didn’t disappoint! The food was delicious. Prompt and friendly service. At desert the waiter brought out a surprise little mousse cake with ‘happy birthday’ on it! This was unexpected and delightful. Little touches like this matter. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
