I’m a Marriot ambassador elite and this restaurant is supposed to be a Marriot premier experience. The service was horrible for what you pay and expect at a fine restaurant. We waited probably 15 minutes for our plates to be cleared. Our waiter and his guy acted like they were overwhelmed. They had about 8 tables and my daughter a waitress could and has done a better job. For a fine experience this should be...maybe 4 tables max for these guys. Look I go to some high end service restaurants like Ljs, library 5 stars and this place should have been on par with those and couldn’t. The view is great and that’s the quote tourist trap. I only tipped 15 percent because I am not a snob and respect the restaurant industry having worked at it in my teens and twenties. . But it should have been a 25 percent that I would have loved to give and should be able to give this a 5. Food was good enough. Not fantastic but with better service I would have been happy to give a higher rating. I mean I had to beg them practically to give another glass of wine when I sat 5 minutes with no wine with a 150 a person type dinner. Don’t waste your time for the money. Go across street to Bond 45 that our concierge booked for me versus my account on open table. Levon gave the service there that all of us should enjoy and spaghetti carbonara to die for. When I check out I’m letting Marriot know they need to up there game up there at the view. 2 stars.

View was nice at the view. The menu is fixed, so make sure there is something you like before going. Food was good but not great. Service was average. Place was empty. Management probably needs to be fired and start over, because with millions of tourists downstairs at Times Square, there is no reason this place should've been half empty as it was at 7 p.m. the night we ate there.

We went here to celebrate my twin daughters’ 21st birthdays and it really was special. The food was amazing and our waitress was lovely. The views were as advertised despite a little fog at the beginning big of our dinner. The staff went out of their way to make our evening special including making sure we took our time as it was not a busy time of year. The revolving restaurant was great as you Sam see every part of the city. I’d recommend it as a special treat. We had the set menu at $94 per person plus wine which wasn’t cheap but worth it for the standard of food and the ambience. Some of us had filet mignon and they had gluten free options which was essential for one of the party. Highly recommended!

We had terrible service. When we asked for the check and put down two credit cards, the waiter split the check wrong and we found out later we were undercharged. At the time, the tip was included so we didn’t bother to check the price and just signed. 5 mins later the waiter comes to our table and says he has to charge us an extra $50 because he made a mistake and says he must do so or else it will come from his pay which we understand. However, how he approached and asked us to repay was very unprofessional and not once did he apologize for making a mistake. It seemed like he was just rushing for us to make another payment again for his own interest. We told our waitress in advance we have to leave at 8:20 pm sharp to catch our train ride, but because of this mistake we left the restaurant 10 mins later than scheduled. I thought that was a let down after a good dinner with a nice view.

The experience of a rotating view is unique, and rewarding - the price for the brunch buffet itself is exorbitant - the options are similar to a good cruise ship buffet experience, but in the heart of Manhattan. The deserts are divine and plenty. Good for impressing a teen on their birthday.

Yes, it’s expensive and there’s a prix fixe menu (which is excellent), but you pay for what you get, and for a dinner experience you get quite a lot. Even the elevator ride up is a treat!

First and foremost, the food is great. I was afraid I was taking my girlfriend to a place whose view and rotating floor was all it could speak of, but the food is actually extremely good. The staff are wonderful as well. I mean they should be, for a high class restaurant. They don’t rush you, they take special/custom orders, and and very hospitable and friendly (thank you very much Tracy and Collette).

If you like the drink, surprisingly (at least for me) the alcohol menu was (in general) cheaper than I expected. Not by much, but a glass of Yamazaki 12 Year is only $23 here, whereas a lot of bars including whiskey-only bars don’t go lower than $27 these days, at least in the city.

Noise level is very quiet. The clientele are not the noisy type, and you could almost hear your fellow diners at a whisper.

If you’re in the city for a special occasion/dinner, I personally think it worth it to come here at least once. Dress a little fancy and have a good time at a high-end NYC restaurant with a wonderful view! Just make sure to have a reservation!
