    Tasteless Burger

    Just had lunch here and the cheese burger was not good - flavorless and full of tendons - no salt, no pepper, no seasoning at all. Burger was warm, but it was topped with COLD pickles!! Why? Waiter was also very hard to understand. Would not come back here again.

    Great service, delicious food

    The food here is solid, but the service is stellar! I mistakenly made a reservation for the wrong date, and didn't realize it until I got to the restaurant. Despite the fact that it was literally the busiest time of year for the restaurant (lunchtime during holiday season) and a 75 minute wait for anyone without a reservation (which technically I didn't have!) the maitre d' Steve managed to seat me and my colleague within five minutes. The food here is great, as is the ambiance. It's nice to be able to watch the skaters at Rock Center while you eat. And though it was very crowded, I didn't feel like I needed to shout for my lunch date to hear me. I ordered the butternut squash soup and tagliatelle, both were delicious.

    Go for the Ice skaters

    I've only come here during the holidays when they have the icerink up for dinner and a show. I love watching the people skating. They're always smiling even when they fall over and they do so constantly. The Salmon here is terrific and probably one of the best I've had in the city. The service isn't memorable so it's not bad, but not spectacular. Overall I like this place but would only come when the icerink is up.

    Great Place to Start your New Your Vacation

    we arrived in NY on Dec 28th and went immediately to Rockerfeller Center. My husband was hungry and wanted to eat at the Center. I was worried about the price but it was worth it. To be sitting by the rink at Christmastime was magical. Our waiter was great! Our water glasses never ran dry and the food was hot all the way through our meal. It is a bit pricey but as my husband said it was our first night in NY. We ate modestly the rest of the time there so it didn't put a dent in our spending money, consider it as your dinner and entertainment for the evening.

    service issues

    The view was wonderful and the food was not bad however the service was horrible. After my party was seated and we ordered drinks my friends parents mentioned that they were probably going to have appetizers to which the waitress stated that the policy of the restaurant was that if we were going to have appetizers we would have to go to the bar and eat them there....how ridiculous(this policy was not written anywhere nor stated to us before being seated)!! All of the other tables by the window had just appetizers. The woman that was seated next to us stated that she "ordered only AN appetizer" and she did not have to eat at the bar. The waitress was very upset with us and continued to mistreat us all night.

    fun spot for the area

    Yes you will be surrounded by tourists, and yes it is a little pricey...but the view of the skaters in the winter and the outdoor cafe in the summer make it worth the extra cash. The food isn't the most creative, but it is well prepared and comforting. With all of the fusioney even pricier places in the area it's definitely worth giving it a try at least once.

    Hostess and Managers need to smile more!

    I know this place is a tourist trap and they see a million tourists everyday, but come on guys! I am a New Yorker and I smile at strangers more than you smile at your customers! This place is too expensive for the quality of the service- if you are a stickler for good service, AVOID this place.
