                                                    Honestly I couldn’t have been more disappointed with our experience at The View. Please note this is a PRICE fix menu as well as a la cart. Our service was terrible; as soon as we said we were not interested in alcoholic beverages our server immediately distanced herself and was the complete opposite of attentive. We are young successful professionals & we received very poor service and felt almost as if we were inconveniencing the (empty- due to the coronavirus) restaurant. The food is the only thing I will give a thumbs up to. I am still in shock that they charged us $20 for water. Completely overpriced and outdated. This restaurant is not glamorous and could really use some upgrades. The view is decent but please be aware this is a circular restaurant at the top of a square building- the views are not unobstructed. Eating dinner at The View was our only regret during our vacation in NYC. Buyer beware!

                                                    The food was very good. I had the Filet ad my guest had the Lamb. Both were cooked as requested. Service bordered on overattentiveness. The restaurant was not busy, so that could have been a factor. The views are very good and add to the overall dinner as you spin around.

                                                    The view was a beautiful restaurant to spend our anniversary all of the stuff gave excellent service but Luis and Raymond were outstanding! The food was great and really good value for money. The views are stunning and I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting New York!

                                                    Lots to like about this experience - the rotating restaurant with skyline views of NYC was a treat. We arrived right on time for our reservation for Sunday brunch and were asked (following a not particularly warm greeting) to have a seat (no waiting seats available) even though ample tables were open. We waited 5 to 10 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated, the service improved - nice server who was helpful and attentive. The food was fine - much to choose from from the buffet and the salads were very tasty. Sampled a salmon medallion that was not edible. For the price ($$$$), I did expect a better quality of food. Lastly, the location is great - we left the hotel and were right at the door to the Richard Rodgers theater so Hamilton go-ers should consider dining at The View.

                                                    My husband and I truly enjoyed our spontaneous stop in at The View for brunch this past weekend. The views were wonderful-it was a gorgeous, clear Spring day in NYC. We ate ourselves silly and everything we had the opportunity to try was delicious. Our server, Samir, was throughly engaging, warm-hearted and took care of our every need. When he learned that we had been married for 26 years, he brought out a special dessert for us to share. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the city - would love to see the views at night!

                                                    When you are in the restaurant the whole vibe is great. The only thing that lets this place down (although I would go again and again) is getting there via the hotel, empty foyer and no obvious signs. The staff and food was amazing and views out of this world!!!! I hope to visit NYC again and will be back to eat at the view

                                                    I expected more as it is located in Time Square and had good reviews. The food was good, and good portions. However, service was not excellent. It was a good experience overall, but not unmemorable.

                                                    A very lovely birthday meal had here at The View, the birthday girl received a beautiful chocolate dessert and was sung to by the waiter. The three courses were absolutely beautiful and the menu provided us with plenty of choice.

Le cadre est déjà à couper le souffle; cette salle qui tourne est juste géniale! Quant à la nourriture, il n’y a rien à dire si ce n’est que c’est vraiment délicieux. Le choix est plus que varié et en quantité. En somme, tout était parfait. Ce repas a un coût mais que l’on ne peut regretter tant le moment fut parfait.

                                                    First time in New York, sounded like a great spot to get some nice views of the city & enjoy some brunch. The food was good but not amazing. For the price I expected a better quality, although there was a good variety to choose from. Staff were very friendly and so helpful!

                                                    Food was better than we had even expected. So many options. Really pleased with the fresh fruit options for the kids along with the waffles and pancakes. The staff were all very pleasant and we couldn’t be happier with anything. There was something for everyone, and then some. The view was incredible. The whole family enjoyed themselves. This was one of the best things we did during our weekend in NYC. Thanks!

                                                    Hacia un poco de frío y es bastante caro para lo que ofrecen. Y está un poquito anticuado.

                                                    A bit overpriced for what the meal actually was. The view was good but not spectacular as you really couldn’t see anything but top of buildings Service ended up being very good after a questionable start. Asked for a window seat which I knew wasn’t guaranteed, but were told none were available, and actually we saw eight or 10 tables available that eventually they let us move to

                                                    Empezaré por reconocer y resaltar su exquisita comida(vale lo que cuesta), el servicio y atención de sus meseros es excelente! Pero debo decir que tienen un grave problema de atención al momento de hacer la reservación. La hice con dos semanas de antelación, después me hablaron para confirmar y les pedí una mesa para dos personas con una preciosa vista ya que estábamos celebrando un cumpleaños, la mujer que me hizo la llamada me dijo claramente que ella se encargaría de eso. Se llegó el día el cual fue el sábado 29 de Febrero y no solo no estaba la mesa preparada como supuestamente se nos ofreció, la mujer que nos recibió a la entrada de muuuy mala gana nos dijo que no había mesas cerca de las ventanas y que si queríamos una mesa ahí debíamos esperar 20 minutos(cuando llegamos antes de la hora de nuestra reservación) La comida es excelente, pero no volvería jamás a ese lugar.

                                                    The View is a great restaurant with a view. That was probably my favorite part. It was our first night in the city and at the top of our hotel so we figured it would be pretty convenient. They were accommodating to my dietary needs but the food was just okay. My husband and I both ordered steaks and both of them came out covered with sauce. I’m more of a purist when it comes to steaks and prefer to let the flavor speak for itself. The sauces were overly salty and didn’t taste so great. We also thought the prices were a little high for what we ate. I’ve had 4-5 course meals for the same price with way more flair and flavor. I probably would not recommend this place to anyone staying in the city.
