My wife and I had dinner at The View for our 30th wedding anniversary. I had checked off anniversary when making our reservation and every staff member we spoke to wished us a happy anniversary. Our servers Collette and Brian were phenomenal. Collette made excellent menu suggestions, both were very personable and Brian took great pictures of us. We had theater tickets for only an hour and a half after our dinner reservation and they both made sure to move dinner along and get us out in time to make our show without feeling rushed. The portions were perfectly sized so that we were satisfied but still had room for dessert (unusual for us). They also brought us a special dessert for our anniversary in addition to the ones we’d ordered. All in all a very nice and memorable experience.

The views were amazing from the View Restaurant. However, the cost of the meal was outrageously expensive for the quality of the food we received. The staff also imposed an extravagant tip on the bill which was clearly not an option. We had our two children with to celebrate my one daughters birthday. The cost was unbelievable at almost $700 for a family of four. We will never return. We live in the UK so tips enforced like this is not acceptable in our culture. This was made worse my the actual cost of the food. Just paying for the view really.

The food was delicious. The view was amazing. But my issue was that I requested a window seat but didn't get that. In fact, I was told there were none available only to find that there was one available and it was given to people that were an hour late for their own reservation.

Great experience even for a New Yorker. I picked this restaurant for our anniversary and I am pleased it did not disappoint. The overall ambiance is romantic, the noise level is moderate, you can still talk to one another without raising your voices. The crab cake and the lobster/crab bisque were exellent, everything is fresh and really dense with fresh crab meat. We both ordered filet mignon and it was cooked a perfect medium rare. I preferred my dessert over his which were 5 different flavored gelatos/sorbets. The waiters were so accomodating and of course, they're experts in taking your pictures in every angle with the perfect view of New York city.
