We went up to the top of the tower and it was awesome!! Beautiful views!! Worth your time especially if you want some great pictures. There was a photographer on the top to take pictures for you for a fee. We went at night to see all the lights. Would like to go again.

You definitely have to visit the top of the tower if you are in NY. The view is great, especially during Xmas period. The food was great and the service was top notch. There was a table of two, that were laughing really loud and almost ruined our night, but I didn't want to bother. The management should have tried... More

I came here with colleagues for a few cocktails after work. It was a great place to chat and enjoy the great view of Manhattan. Great history to the building too.

It really has a nice view. Waiters are very nice but they seem hesitant new or nervous. Breakfast was fairly ordinary. But good variety. I may try something new tomorrow as I'm staying here for a few days. Coffee was good.

It must ve noted that the place change hands very recently and they do NOT have a liquor license. The service was slow, innacurate and non existant. The food was so bad we left half way through the meal.

The view is the view... Ok, alway great. But that's it. Very noisy... So how could it be romantic? Food is ok except our red wine that has been served too warm. Price correct. There was a private party in the center room, not separated to stop people talking loudly. When we booked nobody told us about that party :... More

After reading the reviews on this site I went for dinner with very little expectations. However, it turned out to be a great meal with fantastic views. We got a cloth napkin and cutlery change (maybe they are acting on other complaints) and the waiter was very friendly and informative about the views from where we were sitting. We both... More

If you are looking for a dining venue with great elevated views of the East river, give this a try. Pre-booked here via Open Table and also chose to Google. Good job as it isn't easy to find and out of the main drag in midtown. Recommend you look up first. Also, make sure you book a table on the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
