They were great until the cake, we special ordered a surprise cake for my son’s birthday. For some reason, the guy took everyone’s dessert order and then brought the cake after they served dessert!!!! I even asked them to make sure peoples ate cake instead. We didn’t even cut the cake, then they were so late boxing it that we missed the opening to the lion king AND ended up not being able to pick up the cake later. Such a waste. Other than that, it was a truly lovely evening. They really made it perfect. Samir was a gracious waiter and my family enjoyed it.

Nous avons passés un agréable moment. Le personnel est serviable et attentionné.
Cependant le menu n'est absolument pas digne d'un restaurant gastronomique. Ce qui est embêtant puisque les prix appliqués ne sont pas à l'image de la cuisine. C'est beaucoup trop cher pour ce que c'est :nous avons payés 300 dollars pour un menu en 3 temps et 2 verres de vin.
Par ailleurs,la vue est très jolie.

being a larger party, i understand service will be different than with dining for 2. Wait staff did not do a great job checking in. there were 2 servers in beginning and they didn't do good job coordinating with each other and bot hcame to take drink orders. after the beginning we only had one server. I could see him having longer conversations with all the other tables around us but never did that with our table. seemed more interested with flirting with the two ladies at the table next to us. Once meals came, server never came to check in to make sure food was okay. I didn't receive the butter for my lobster and never was able to ask for it because of lack of checking in from server.

for the pricepoint of the restaurant, the service was subpar. the ambiance and quality of the food was great, but felt the restaurant could use this feedback to help them improve. the amount of the tips servers make should be enough for the guest to expect a better experience and for the management to train or hire better staff. i felt like since 18% was being added automatically that the server didn't have to do anything to earn the tip. I also think that a party of 6 is not large enough to warrant automatic 18% gratuity. i would not have paid more than 10-15% tip for the lack of service and attention. Make your servers earn their tips instead of forcing it on the guest. that is why it is called a gratuity.

Excellent option for anyone visiting New York. Very nice view. Great gluten free options too! Food was excellent. This is my 2nd time there and it is a go to for me now when entertaining anyone on their tourist visit to NYC. I would not call it a kid friendly restaurant, but they had a kids menu andd were very welcoming to the 5 year old we had with us this time. Service among the various waiters was a bit scattered, but saying anything negative would be being overly picky.

The bread they serve is cold. The fish that they call Sea Bass is not sea bass at all. When I questioned it, I was told that it’s their version of sea bass! Crab cakes were very good and so was the dessert. The view snd ambiance are okay, but not worth the price in my opinion.

The view ist outstanding. The Food is very good. Service was poor compared to international Standard at top Restaurants. Although we had a reservation it Tool 45 minutes until our table was ready - a no go at this price level. The service was like trainees would have their first day.
