The View Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Everything was good but me and my friend didn’t like the waitress who insist for the tips ! She wrote this with a pen on a ticket. Be careful about that with different culture, and the comportment. She explained “it’s included”. But no, it wasn’t included, it’s additional after taxes ! She was very hungry during this explication and after departure.
Almost $500 for dinner for three - good food, nice wine, super view. Yes, the view is amazing. The food was interesting and of good quality. We didn't know that the ONLY option on this Saturday night was a $89 prix fixe - no à la carte available. The minimum wine bottle was $40. Also, you need to allow plenty of time to get up the escalator to the 3rd floor and CHECK YOUR COAT (this is REQUIRED) at the "free" coat check on the 3rd floor, then take the elevator to the 48th floor, then walk downstairs to the 47th floor and wait at the reception desk to be assigned your (reserved) table. The waiter took our order and almost at once brought two appetizers to 2 out of the 3 of us that we hdan't ordered (they were for a neighboring table). We had glasses of wine to start and had to ask to order the bottle of wine to accompany the main course, which didn't arrive until after we had started eating. The service was friendly and pleasant but not of a high professional standard. We had allowed 90 minutes for dinner and in fact had to race out, reversing the siairs/elevator/coat check/escalator process, arriving late for our 8 PM show on Broadway. The view is stunning, the food is very nice but the bill for 3 people - 3 fixed price 3-course dinners, 3 glasses of wine, 1 bottle of wine, with the 18th obligatory service charge, came to almost $500. So prepare to SPLURGE.
Friends from Italy were in New York for the first time and The View really delivered! It was beautiful and an overall great night! Only thing is there is no clear communication about it being a price fixe only option online or on open table. We still enjoyed and the food was amazing so it was not a big deal. Just for the next time to be clear.
Disgustingly overpriced! $289.00 for a simple meal with very limited options. Went there for my fiancé’s birthday which was the only thing that made it tolerable. Food was OK but minimal, service was a perfect match. The view itself was OK but definitely nothing spectacular. Nothing high end about it, a complete hustle!
Booked this table 2 months prior and requested a window seat but instead, window tables are assigned in the order that Customers arrive, meaning even someone without a reservation can acquire a window seat over someone who has booked prior. We even noticed a couple on a nearby window table settling their bill so kindly asked to be moved (as a way for the restaurant to improve the night) but nobody even came back to us to confirm yay / nay then next then 15mins later, our main turns up and another couple take the window table.
Service was very slow, no offer to take coats / jackets etc so slung over the chair next to us - not really a great look for a ‘top class’ restaurant. First drinks order came to us wrong, then they ran out of what we had asked for (soft drinks / post mix...) then the next drinks order came to us wrong. Food was nowhere near the standard that I would expect when paying $89 per person for a three-course meal. And where do I start with serving mac’n’cheese with steak!!?
Lastly to top it off, the waiter then made a song and dance when there was no tip at the end of the meal. I tip good service and good food, and hate when something is expected, just because it’s American culture!
Great view of the city if you sit next to a window but definitely wouldn’t recommend going there for a meal or drinks!
It is family oriented. Very classy but you can wear casual attire. Food price on high end but very good, very tasty and very elegant in presentation. Waiters are very professional, friendly, attentive and courteous! The only revolving restaurant in the city so it is a must to try and to impress because it is indeed impressive! Make sure you ask to be seated by the window to make it really worth it.
We're charged 81% for gratuity. Found out at check out time. Ms.. O.did not respond yet, to credit -/+ $400.00 back to my Marriott visa card. Can u help? Otherwise, everything was an experience for a lifetime.!! Big thanks.
The view of the New York skyline that you got from the restaurant table was absoultely breath taking. Just keep in mind it is a pricey place since it does have such an amazing view and the resturaunt rotates so you have a different view ever couple minutes. For my boyfriend and I it was $250 total. This was our first time in New York and it was also a new year so we wanted to make the most of it. Great place!
Because it has rotating seating, there are amazing views. The food is extremely over priced and not that good. The space could use a little renovation.... sort of stuck in 90’s. Next time will just grab dessert in the bar to be able to experience the views.
Overall the food was great. The only thing I didn’t like was that the appetizer (foie gras) was like sweet and salty. I wanted something salty to start off and my friend had the same issue with that food. Other than that staff was pleasant and the view was just mesmerizing. Definitely recommend that for romantic dates, anniversaries, birthday dinner or even a surprise engagement ;)
We were very underwhelmed by the food, for such an extortionate price we do not believe the food was up to standard. My partner usually loves steak, he left most of his steak back saying it tasted like sausage meat. My ravioli starter was very dry with little sauce. Not really a fan of the massive potatoes either - a small salad or something dainty would have been preferred. Service was very slow.
Brilliant service throughout the meal, the waiter even gave we two desserts because I couldn't choose which one I wanted! Views were obviously great however I didn't expect the restraunt to be so high, I thought we would be able to see Times Square in full, instead we just got to see the skyline which was actually equally as amazing. I also thought the food was going to be a picture on a plate but it wasn't, it was real hearty, delicious food.
Fabulous! The Prix fixe menu offers a wonderful selection at a reasonable price. Our server was knowledgeable and entertaining too. If you have reservations don't get in line downstairs. As left the person at the start of the line as you do not need to wait in line. They escort you right up.
