great view, ok food – I've been there once, and the view was great. Probably best in the city. Food was ok. Overall pricey however. Expect over 200 for two people.
Just go for drinks and the view – The view is to die for, true. But the food just might kill you.
Seriously, if you served this crud at street level, you wouldn't be in business for a week in a town that has so much to offer in cusine. The food is terrible, overpriced, and the selection is poor. Like someone else said, the place was empty. I had the same elevator experience as another reviewer too. We complained to the manger (Which we honestly NEVER do.) and he seemed amazed. He said he has 600 people a day through there and they love it. I think the Marriot should schedule him for a drug test, because there is just no way. Look at the other reviews and tell me that again, pal. To his credit, he compensated the meal. If you want to enjoy the view, then just go for drinks and save yourself the heartache.
Ugh! Please.... – I went there last weekend at around 6PM and 1st off, the elevator was a p.i.t.a since you had to punch in a code to get to the 48th floor. Then you are seated at the lounge instead of the dining area, which I had no clue of until I noticed no one had entrees and no wait staff came to offer me a menu. Bad service! Then, I had to stop a waiter to ask for a menu and he told me this was the lounge only serving buffet(ugh, horrible choices) and drinks and the restaurant was on the level below. I proceed to the level below and 3 old ladies are waiting to be seated, restaurant is EMPTY! The decor was so shabby and the chairs dirty! The view is all this place can tout!
Cheesefest, but who cares? – The food, service, decor here are suburbia at its worst, but it is nevertheless a great place to go when you just need to have a big view and feel elevated from the parade of ants below for a few hours - and of course, kids love it. If you can kick back and accept the slow service and learn to love the bowling alley carpet, it's heaven. Sort of.
airplane food & AC casino decoration – airplane food. each dish tasted like it had been under a warming lamp for a few hours - tough, brown nugget of beef, rubbery shellfish, etc.. we didn't go with high expectations... we thought we'd be able to enjoy it as a tourist-y kitsch kind of thing - but the food managed to be a let down, even through a kitschy lens. also: the decoration reminds one of an atlantic city casino... one of the more depressing atlantic city casinos - like the showboat or something.
great service, fantastic view – you should really check this place out. i took a few friends to eat here and we loved it. the service was great. our waiters name was joe. he was attentive, friendly, and helpful. he recommended everything we ate and we loved the food and wine he picked out for us. the scallops were awesome. the foie gras melts in your mouth.
go be a tourist for a day see the great view. you won't be disappointed! i'm taking a date next time!
Awful awful awful. Just downright awful. – I am not a "foodie" but I do not mind paying for a good meal. That being said, I question the taste of any reviewers on here who claim that the food was decent or even good. I've had more satisfying meals from a street vendor...
The view at the View is nice. Beyond that, I don't recommended it. Pay the cover for the lounge, but DO NOT eat dinner here. The food is awful. Our poultry was served rare and the side dishes are nonexistent unless you pay $9 extra for them. Our server was pleasant enough but sloppy. Served someone over me while spilling sauce from my plate all over my arm. He did not apologize -- or even seem to notice. Restaurant (not lobby) hostess was downright rude and acted as if we were intruding by asking for our reserved table. Then made us wait 15 min without explanation. I thought they could redeem themselves with dessert, but still everyone was making faces while eating it.
With one (weak) cocktail, dinner will cost you $120 EACH. Please, go elsewhere with your money!
You get what you pay for – While the cost of the meal is expensive, you definitely feel that it's worth it by the end of the night.
Appetizer, entree, dessert... each course was wonderful
The food is very well prepared and the comination of lfavors are well thought out and executed.
And you're paying for the view as well as the food. The spinning of the restaurant is nice and slow, so don't think it will make you sick.
Plus the Cosmo was nice and strong.
I will definitely go there again.
Must be seen view – Great view of Times Square, high buildings. A good place to take your visitors. The menu is fix menu, one from the hot or cold appetizers and one from the entree. The appetizers are delicious and fresh. If you like seafood, order seafood entree rather than steak. Dessert plate is delicious; you will find your favorite among the various kinds of desserts, cheesecake, brownie, ice cream, frozen chocolate, all served in a nice plate. The service is great; waiters are very polite and paying attention. It may not be turned into your favorite place but you should go there at least once.
Great Place – just a great place to dine. I took my wife here and she absolutly loved it. the food was presented fantastic and tasted great. However the portions were a bit small and pricey. you looking at 250 bucks for two people. So its great for a really special occasion. The view is incredible and i recommed that you reserve a seat in time for sunset. Check out the surf and turf..oh yeah the waiter was very freindly.
