My husband and I came to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and splurged on the $200 prix-fixe, which includes the wine pairing. It was a memorable evening with great view, great service and exceptional food. I would compare the cost to attending a great show; in fact there was too much food and I would take the cheaper menu if I had to do it again.

Wow, I’m really surprised at the negative reviews here. My husband & I enjoyed a belated Valentines brunch here recently & were absolutely blown away! All the food is excellent. It’s a prix fixe 3-course brunch for $48, a splurge, but I believe you get more of your money’s worth here than at other fine dining places. You really leave feeling well-FED, you get plenty of exquisite food in good portions, rather than the tiny tasting portions of (nonetheless sublime) dishes that one associates w/ prices like these at some establishments. 1st course is a tasting plate of 4 different things; the mushroom wonton & the squash soup w/ cappuccino/truffle foam were my faves – innovative & delicious. The other 2 items were seafood, also great. My husband doesn’t even LIKE mushrooms OR seafood but he enjoyed these! 2nd course was your choice of 2 main items. From those, my faves were the sweet potato raviolis (I could’ve eaten a platterful of them) & waffles w/ salted caramel syrup & cooked apples (light & airy confections, excellent). We overheard raves from other tables about the food too. Lastly, 2 desserts – both were great but the chocolate pudding w/ chantilly cream was to die for. AND of course, the 35th fl view is incredible! Note, there aren’t many 2-tops by the windows, so you may not get a window table even if requested (we lucked out, someone at the window complained it was too sunny & we got her table). Our server was friendly & attentive (& helped us forget the chilly hostess that sat us). We are eager to return here for a dinner, or another brunch!

Love the views, but the food is way over priced for what you get.

The room is exciting, the service adequate, but the food is subpar. The halibut tasted as if it had been defrosted and refrozen and defrosted again. The appearance of the food (styling) was lovely, but somebody in the kitchen doesn't know anything about flavor!

We came for brunch on Valentine's day and loved it, so we returned a few weeks later for a window view. What a pleasant surprise that the candy upon leaving is a regular thing---at least on weekend brunches

Spectacular view without a doubt but don't expect to be blown away by the food or service. The bread basket contained croissant that were not even close to French pastries - no fluffiness, buttery taste or crisp at the bite. The foursome petite plate with soup, fish, beef and chicken bun was bland. The mushroom soup was tasty, yet not hot enough. The sauces drizzled ever so slightly on the other two gave them flavor but wasn't memorable enough to even describe. The chicken bun is a little snowball without taste. The main entree consisting of two pairings of your choice was better - fish was crispy but the pasta with ricotta and mushrooms well over-cooked. The dessert, another pair, of pistachio cake and chocolate mousse cake were both very dry and screamed for a dip in a fruit juice which was dried up on the plate just for decoration. It would have done more good if it moistened the cakes instead of just looking "pretty." The service obviously still not awake at rbunch since we told them of a nut allergy and yet they brought out the pistachio cake and it took 3 tries for them to bring out the proper substitute. For the cost it wasn't worth it!
