My family and I enjoyed our time at the view. We had the prix fixe dinner. Though we enjoyed our meals, we paid too much for nonalcoholic drinks. The way the waiter was kind of forcing us to try the drinks I thought they came with the meals. I didn't like his recommended drink at all, while I was trying to get water. I went beyond my budget. Otherwise, I would come back. I had been there before with friends. I thought I would let my family experience it. They were very pleased.

The View is about what you'd expect from the name. The food takes a backseat to the spectacular scenery as the seating area slowly revolves (it takes about two hours to get back to where you started) to take in a 360 degree of the theater district and midtown. The service was very good and the food - I had a pork chop and my wife had salmon and a very nice cold green gazpacho - was fine without being particularly memorable, but you should be aware that there's no other option to the prix fixe menu which is clearly designed to make sure the restaurant makes its nightly nut. You're paying for the view, and as long as you're okay with that, it's a fun experience. If you're looking for a great dinner there are a lot of better options in the area, most of which will be less expensive.

While this is a pricey place, I will say that it is well worth it for a special occasion. After all, part of the price is for the view. Beside, the service is very attentive and the food is decent. For the appetizer, I will recommend the shrimp cocktail. For the entry, I will recommend the filet mignon, just skip the seafood paella. For the desert, the best choice is the caramel and hazelnut filled profiterole. All the dishes have decent portion size. The three course prix-fixe dinner is more than enough.

The steak was perfectly cooked and the food was overall good however it feels like the place has overlived its reputation. It's still a nice place to visit for the view but maybe just for drinks...

We went to The View as a belated 70th birthday for my sister and belated 21st for my daughter and were very happy with our visit. The waiters were very attentive. The food was incredible, lots of choice. We were not rushed at all and were able to enjoy the view. Our time there was finished by my daughter being bought out a birthday cheesecake and having happy birthday sung to her. Well worth the money.

It’s right around the corner from the lion king theatre, which was very convenient. The food wasn’t the good, typical food nothing outstanding. The view was awesome, and if you can do during sunset time that would be ideal. Make sure to allot 2 to 2.5 hours for the dinner

The food was all excellent and beautifully prepared. It was a wonderful meal at a great venue.

I will say I didn't realize how their pricing works. Everyone gets a one charge ($89) for a three-course meal, and you pick something from each category. There are plenty of selections in each category--many high-end--so it's not a problem. Just something to note.

The restaurant is a great spot to enjoy the view of NY from above. We came for a dinner before a Broadway show and it worked great! The waiter immediately checked with us how much time we had, so that we were at the show on time. They served us swiftly and kept the track of time. The food was good, nothing outstanding, but good. The drinks - the menu looked good, but I didn’t like that our drinks by the glass were already full when they brought them out, ie were not poured from the bottle in front of us.

This is a really interesting restaurant with nice views and an intriguing menu, but the environment is a little dated and it’s definitely more of a tourist destination than a high-end dining experience. As such, the price isn’t really justified, but you should go and check it out at least once — just make sure that it’s on a Sunday day! 😎
