The bread they serve is cold. The fish that they call Sea Bass is not sea bass at all. When I questioned it, I was told that it’s their version of sea bass! Crab cakes were very good and so was the dessert. The view snd ambiance are okay, but not worth the price in my opinion.

The views were great and the service was good, but the food was average, verging on disappointing, especially as the cost is very high. Both starters and main courses lacked flavour/seasoning and the red cabbage was dry. Desserts were good though.

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 food was amazing, we had a show booked and our waiter Brian ensured our food was out in time for us to be able to get to the show on time. Yes it is pricey at $92 per person plus tax but the food and view was definitely worth it. Brian was a lovely waiter and took the time to give us some recommendations of places to visit whilst we were on holiday. Definitely recommend

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.

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.

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.
