The View Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The dinning experience was excellent the only issue was when we were waiting for our table. They informed us we could be at the bar for drinks and one of the glass was dirty and smell like fish. But when they called our table we left the drinks. Downstairs by the dinning was great service was good and very attentive.
The View is the experience of a revolving restaurant but not much more. The service was impeccable but the food was just OK and way to expensive for what it was. The restaurant lacked atmosphere as many tables were empty on a Friday night. I would not go back. A cake was given to us to celebrate our anniversary which was a lovely gesture.
Outstanding--in every way. Not for the faint of wallet. Had fixed price three course meal, and four glasses of wine total between us, was $325 with tip. But nothing in the city, including the Empire State Building, holds a candle to the view. Food was absolutely delicious--I had been there before but do not remember the food being that wonderful--and I am from New Orleans. Service was impeccable, friendly and attentive without being at all pushy. For any special occasion, be it anniversary, valentines' date (our celebration), or just because, this is the place.
The view was incredible and the atmosphere was very romantic. However, the food was very poor. Both me and my boyfriend left most of each course that we ordered, which was a shame as we chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary on our holiday from England. Very expensive for the food we recieved.
The View was absolutely spectacular! Amazing view of NYC from so high! We were visiting NYC from Nova Scotia Canada and this restaurant was recommended from a cast member of Come From Away! We were not disappointed! Will recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting NYC!
We went for Sunday brunch just before the start of our matinee show at the Minskoff theater. The View is directly across from the Minskoff theater, so it was the perfect location for us. The buffet was lovely and we were able to relax and enjoy the view from our seats at the rotating lounge. Keep in mind they only take reservations.
We spent a night in the city w our two children (8 and 5) after watching Disney’s Aladdin. The next morning I surprised the family w brunch at The View. They all loved the experience. The food choices were good, the service was friendly and the views were unbeatable. My kids can’t wait to go back.
We booked The View for my husbands 40th birthday for brunch. We were greeted and taken to a table next to the window with great views of Manhattan (despite the pouring rain ☔️ ). The selection was fantastic ..I don’t eat meat and there was more than enough to cater for me. Service was impeccable. We would definitely come back again if we were ever back in New York.
My boyfriend and I would like to say thank you to all the staff that looked after us at the view. The food was wonderful. You also made a very young 40 year old feel very special to celebrate his birthday. The cake was tasty. The view could have been better. But hey, you can’t change Mother Nature.
The food was very good. However, for the cost I would have preferred it if there were not small crying children allowed in the restaurant. It totally distracted us from the evening and being able to enjoy the ambience of the restaurant. We were seated against the window so we could enjoy the view, but there was a table seated next to us with two small crying children who were obnoxiously loud and were throwing rolls on the floors repeatedly.
Family and I (party of 6) went during restaurant week. The servers were attentive and checked on us periodically throughout the night. The food was subpar. Three of us ordered the cod which was bland and tasteless. The chicken was tender and seasoned okay and the steak was good. Lobster Mac and cheese was good with large chucks of lobster, unfortunately, the lobster bisque didn't have one chunk of lobster in it. The drinks had a pretty presentation but tasted like a virgin beverage. The cheesecake was good, but the ginger chocolate pudding was terrible after eating the ice cream, which was on top of the pudding you were left with a glob of dark chocolate pudding. Restaurant seemed a bit outdated but overall nice. Last, the view of the city was nice and the rotation of the restaurant made the night enjoyable. Overall, three stars because of the food. Restaurant week is supposed to make me come back for more, but won't be back anytime soon.
