All round good experience, good food, value for money is quite bad, however a totally different dining experience that doesn’t come round often. Would recommend, be ready for a big bill though. $256 for 2.

The dinner was too over rated. The prices were to high for the quality of the food. I know that you pay a price for "the view" but still, there is somewhere a line to be drawn.
The view was spectaculair, that is surely to be said.

Great for the views and food is good. A set menu which was $89 for 3 courses. Wouldn’t recommend for children. In my opinion they weren’t flexible on what they served. We asked for some fries and they couldn’t do it.

The view is truly a revolutionary way to see NYC. In the middle of bustling Time Square, you are able to escape and see the city away from the crowds. With an intimate and cosy setting, you get to experience some of the best tastes the city has to offer.

Do not visit without getting the View Fizz and lobster Mac and Cheese!

Gedateerd. Eten was gewoon niet best. De mignon was overigens wel goed. De bediening probeerde professioneel over te komen maar was amateuristisch en verre van vriendelijk. Het uitzicht was zeker mooi en het ronddraaiend restaurant is 'n unieke beleving. Je betaald de hoofdprijs en dat was het zeker niet waard. En vergeet niet dat er bovenop de prijzen vd menukaart nog de tax én een megatip volgt. Deze tip nemen ze zelf al op in de totaalprijs. Bij ons kwam er nog even 56,- dollar tip bij..

I dined here primarily because I was staying in the hotel and didn’t want to go off prem. In terms of ambiance this is a really cool restaurant and the wait staff was fantastic. In terms of food WAY over priced for what you get.

Unless your lazy like me, do yourself a favor and go to one of the 1,000 better restaurants in NYC.

A worthwhile visit, for the atmosphere, view and service alone. The prix-fixed is quite expensive but relatively reasonable - the drinks are very, very expensive. I’d say the food was good but not worth the prices charged (I’ve had far better food in a fine-dining venue for cheaper), however you are paying for the view and the expense of being in NY. Service was fantastic, and the staff were very attentive. Overall, I’d recommend to tourists who want to splurge or celebrate while on a trip to NY, but you wouldn’t necessarily ‘miss out’ if you couldn’t afford it or didn’t want to. A generally nice evening but was very costly.

We had dinner here for our anniversary and we couldn’t be more satisfied with our experience. Food was great, drinks were delicious and the views were amazing. They even brought out a mini personal chocolate mousse cake, decorated with a mini edible sign, congratulating us for our anniversary. It was delicious and definitely a wonderful gesture. We will revisit again on occasions.

Problem booking through this app... didn’t know about the reservation at all when we turned up, despite confirming it!! but thankfully they honoured it, which was much appreciated... gave us a window seat and a little cake as it
Was a special occasion :-) lovely food...perfect in fact... except the added gratuity of 18% for 2 people seemed steep!

Overall the food and services were both great. The lobster that I order was a bit salty, but still acceptable. I made the reservation for my boyfriend's birthday. The restaurant gave us a free cupcake with a lit candle, which made us impressed. However, I was surprised that the restaurant charged $10 for the water. I didn't realize it until a day after while I was looking at the receipt again.

The service here was good except my server who was in my opinion very poor standing. Me and my date arrived early and got drinks at the longe before hand where we were given excellent service. We took our drinks up to our table once it was ready however, once we got there and were greeted by our waitress she never once asked us for another drink after we finished ours. On top of that I have a peanut allergy and she seemed to look at me with confusion when I told her this. After that she accidentally gave my appetizer to my date and then again with my dinner. Later we asked for our desert to go as we order them and she brought it out on plates instead. This isn’t a huge deal however, having a allergy to peanuts this made me extremely nervous about whether or not my food was prepared and order correctly as this server couldn't get a single thing right. The food was excellent so it wasn’t completely bad however, for the price and location of this place I’d expect better service, as you would find better service from a chain restaurant. I’ll never come back and wouldn’t suggest it to anyone.

Worst place I’ve ever eaten at in NYC! It was like stepped into a cruise ship in the 90s. Decor was old and dated. Restaurant was not very clean. Food was terrible, everything tasted like it was microwaved. Even the dessert was bad. How does one mess up chocolate ice cream! At $90 per person, it was a rip-off! Not worth it at all. Te view was okay at best. The only thing that was good was the service staff.

Amazing service! The food was excellent and there was a wide selection. The building is odd, the windows really distrupt the view and it's impossible to take a nice picture of anything outside the windows. It was disappointing considering the price that you pay, it seemed as though the restaurant was a huge after thought to the building.
Overall a great experience though, the service really made the meal a great one.
