I had options for each of the courses which should always be the case. Flavour and subtle tastes were evident in each dish and portion sizes were perfect. My lamb shank was beautiful. Service was very good and appeared at the right time.

At times we easily forgot about the view as the food was that good.

All about the view which is amazing
Food and service are average at best however having said that ,Is definitely worth the visit
I would say the Sunday brunch is better than dinner and expect to wait for your waiter/waitress to take care of your orders
Also for the sunset specify that you are there for a table where you can see the sunset as in our case they were inaccurate and our table missed the sunset by 25 mins but we got up and took pics

Tha "View" was excellent. The food was ample at the brunch, an excellent selection for all tastes. The wait staff was impeccable! The NY city skyline is amazing and the "View" provided an astounding vantage point. The restaurant itself is clean, spacious, well appointed and well though out, down to the handsome silverware. The "view" was a wonderful experience and I can't wait for another occasion to return.

The experience itself was nice- the food was sub par and for the taste was over priced. We are glad we dined there as it will be a check off of our list. Would be okay if we never ate there again.

This was our third visit to the View. It’s our go-to place for special occasions, and showing off the city to family and friends. The food was wonderful, as usual, and the service, outstanding. We would recommend this restaurant unreservedly.

This was my 67th birthday dinner which I sent with my daughter and my 7 year old granddaughter. We all enjoy everything about this dinner and I vow to make this an annual dinner celebration. We also intend to visit for Sunday brunches during the summer and for “because we feel like” dining out.
Thank to our server Tom. We appreciated your input and service and thanks for my birthday cake. We will be back.

The view of the City was outstanding. The service was attentive. If I could the food a zero, I would. My husband’s review of the dessert: “Mmmmmmm. Tastes just like a Christmas urinal.” (and he wasn’t wrong)

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. To get a meal surf and turf that came out bloody and made him sick as well as the food was very cold. Did not want to complain so just sat it there. Did not eat the desert was not what I was expecting and for me to spend 400$ for 2 it was not worth it at all.

Overall it was a very nice experience. The food was great, excellent service and beautiful scenery. However, I specifically called about the dress code and after going to the restaurant, the dress code clearly is not enforced. I just think that piece took away from the atmosphere some.

I hardly ever write reviews, and I submit this one to be productive and helpful to others... The View Restaurant is a good choice IF you are new to NYC, new to Times Square, or are going to the theater. Be aware, though, that not all tables at The View are alike; quite understandably, not all tables are up against the windows, and some even have very limited views or are set way back in the restaurant. Avoid The View if you are looking for good food, good wine, are a foodie of any sort (even just a bit), or expect a certain level of service. In this case, The View is NOT the place for you. The food is simply large hotel food (and average, at best), the wine selection is limited, the staff seem like lovely people but race around frenetically, and you pay a whole lot of money for the experience that may offer only an average or partial view (i.e. ~$600 for food, bottle of average wine & service/gratuity for just three of us). My advice: explore One World Trade Center or the Empire State Building to get your NYC viewing experience, then spend your money elsewhere on a better, higher-quality dining experience.

Foie Gras app with Veal shank for main course. My date had the crab cake and Filet mignon. Both were well executed and tasty. But the star if the meal is the view. Quite awesome

It’s a very good place for date or special occasion. If you want to sit right by the window, it’s better reserve a spot before 5:30. The service was great, food was good.
