The View Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was really tasty and the views were amazing, however the fact there was only the option of a 3 course set menu was a let down. Perhaps we should have stayed in the bar area instead (it appears there was a buffet there, plus even a drink alone would have been enough to take in the views without having to pay the $89 each for the set menu) but I'm surprised it was a 3 course set menu or nothing...
Drink (I.e spirits) servings were generous and service was average (best service was in the bar I'd say).
If I was to return I'd just go to the bar for a drink.
Our experience was good overall with the exception of an obnoxious guest that happened to be there. She was obviously in the WRONG place. We were 4 tables away and could hear every word of her conversation. I approached her and asked her to keep it down so that we could enjoy our dinner and well it didn't go well from there. We asked to be moved and the staff members were more than happy to accomodate us. After that, we did enjoy the rest of our evening. The restaurant is very unique and the experience of seeing the city as you dine was wonderful. MD crabcakes, well, I am from MD, those "weren't" MD crabcakes. Steak was amazing and we loved our server. I just feel that as a patron, I should not have had to even trouble myself, to ask another guest to keep it down, that should have been addressed by management without question. When you are paying over $200 for dinner, you are paying for atmosphere.
Absolutely amazing night for my 21st birthday. Our severs were outstanding and couldn’t do enough for us. The views were brilliant and the food was delicious. They brought us a cake and champagne to end my birthday celebrations. Would recommend this to anyone that will visit New York.
The view of Manhattan was great but the food was mediocre at best. A bottle of California wine and four dinners cost $542. The foie gras was disappointing. The pate lacked flavor and its "cherry-clove" topping made it awful. My wife enjoyed her crab cake appetizer while the Late Harvest Baby Kale and Herb Salad was just salad. The steaks were cooked as ordered. The salt crusted baked potato should have been left in the kitchen.
Next time, I'll go to the top of the Empire State Building for the view...or maybe the Statue of Liberty...or the Staten Island ferry. I won't be going back to "The View."
This restaurant was recommended to me by my son who visited last year. I was so excited to visit. We were not disappointed at all we arrived slightly early and shown where the lift was to go up to the 47th floor. That experience was amazing and ear popping. We were shown to our table which was at the window and menu drinks explained by Antonio. We asked for cocktails and they were gorgeous. To start I had fois gras granache and my husband had shrimp cocktail they were both exquisite. For main my husband had lamb shank, I had surf and turf which was fillet with half lobster, again was gorgeous to finish I had cherry pie and the hubby had panacotta. We were so stuffed. I totally enjoyed the whole dining experience.
The View is an awesome restaurant to dine. We went there prior to a theatre performance to celebrate my 12 year old daughter’s achievements. She totally loved it and my family also had a great time and loved the atmosphere. It was a great outing for the day we had planned ahead. The View is definitely a great restaurant to dine at. My server, Antonio, was very attentive and made sure we were happy and pleased.
Our waitress and service and food was AWESOME!
I do have an issue I want to share; I had to give my atm card as a credit card to hold the reservation. Shortly afterwards, someone went to Brooklyn and used my card for a hotel stay at the Levee and taxis and bars/food. Too much of a coinky dink-if any servers have recently been to Brooklyn during the week for a couple day get away, they used my card.
Other than that, everything was awesome. Thanks and I'll be back.
The venue it’s self is amazing, can get a bit sickening after a while.
I found the waiters to be really rude, plus they added on a service charge of 18% to the bill without asking which seemed far to much seeing as they did not deserve it but I felt rude not to pay it.
The food it’s self was kind of ok, not the best food I’ve had probably a 4/10,
Cost of it was extremely expensive, for which seemed to be poor standard dining experience.
The view is great
Food is good: deserts are very good, the meat very well cooked, little disappointment with the side dishes i.e a very bad puree which was basically potatoes smashed in water...tasteless
Vegetables are not well cool : they try to make it cooked but still crunchy like in fancy restaurants but it is just raw
The negative was the reception :the restaurant is empty but you have to wait 10 minutes in the middle of the path of the waiters working where you keep being on their way before getting a seat
Once you have the table service is very good
I always go back to the View every time I am in Manhattan so every couple of years. The food has gone down hill a bit - not as creative or as gourmet as it was 20 years ago - but the service is still excellent and the view of the city as the restaurant slowly revolves is priceless. If you want the best food this is not the spot for you. It's good but not great. It's all about the view of Manhattan, people watching and a really fun place to eat. I'll definitely come back next time I'm in town.
Best thing about this resturant was the view, on arrival had to wait approx 15 mins by the reception, two starters served us weren't ours waited too long for starters when eaten served main course immediately.
Overall food very poor was not worth the money totally disappointed.
The spectacular view added to the wonderful dinner and ambiance during the Christmas season in NYC. A must do for that special occasion with a special someone. The menu was impressive and so was the baked potato stuffed with mac and cheese! Can't be in New York without having the cheesecake. Delicious treats from start to finish.
