There is a decent view from our eating spot. Food was also decent, although I wish there were slightly bigger portions. Don't get me started on my waitress. Maybe, I just might go for my next break.

Arrived promptly for a reservation for 2, restuarant was empty (1 other party of 4). It took 25 minutes from ordering to get our appertizer of 4 mini spring rolls. The first one was very nice. However, the remainder were frozen solid. We sent these back to the kitchen. a further 15 minutes later, still no sign of our order. We left. Such a shame as we were looking forward to finding a good new place during restaurant week. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Had dinner last week in above and realized that they have good young management team that goes above and beyond. The place is much different then what it use to be few years ago. It is always good to see energetic group of people taking care of you. I recommend the place to everyone, either for a 1st date or for a business meeting ect…. The food is delicious and the wine selection is hugeeee.

With poor service and mediocre, overpriced food, Above should be re-named as "Below". The food was sub-par and made me think that I would have been better off going to Times Square. With fewer than 3 tables the entire night (on a weekend night!), you would have thought that the service would have been excellent since there were so few of us. Well, you would have thought wrong! Our bill came out to be almost $75/person, but we were still hungry after we left. In a town like NYC with phenomenal restaurants on every corner, there is no reason to waste your time or money on a restaurant like Above.

Agree with the last review about this new chef...BUT, give that bar menu a chance....overpriced?...yeah...but it is a hotel (expense accounts and all that)....french fries for $9????...worth every penny...3 great dipping sauces...fries cooked/presented perfectly...no oil whatsoever....have that and a couple of stouts (also too pricey)...and you have a meal.....the sliders are excellent (either the American kobe Beef or the Ahi tuna sliders)....calimari served like pomme frites....how about the wild mushroom/duck pizza?.....nice atmosphere.....house wines could be a little better...so, if you don't mind overpaying for really good bistro food...this is a nice addition to the area,....

I had been to the restaurant a number of times and had always been pleased, this time on January 20th was extremely pleased with the food only to find out that management has changed and on this night the Chef was introducing his new menu. I was very pleased with the choices and with the New Prix Fixe Menu. Most notable is the improved service; the waiters are very knowledgeable on the menu and helpful with suggestions.

I really enjoyed my visit to Above Restaurant. Food was good, service was good, atmosphere also good. Don't be fooled by the advertisements....it doesn't really look over Times Square, but the view is still really beautiful! I would say the atmosphere is really probably the main reason you would want to eat here, even though the food was good...just not delicioso!!
