    This was one of my favorite places we went during our whole trip and we were there for an hour and it didn’t involve food, that’s saying something. We went up for drinks and to step out into their glass walled balcony. It was beautiful and well worth the short 15 minute wait. The signature drinks ranged from $20-$25 and were fun and tasty.

    Ate here last week for my husband and my anniversary. We had reservations and got a table overlooking The Empire State Building. This would have been great had their not been people standing on the observation deck the whole time making it hard to see anything but their backs. We did get to go out on the deck twice and see the city during sunset and again all lit up at night. The drinks were fine, but expensive. We ordered pigs in a blanket (good starter), pulled pork sliders (again good but nothing special), and my husband ordered the cod (he said it had an overwhelming smokey taste to it). Overall we are glad we did it, but probably won't go back. On the plus side, we joked to subtract about $60 from the total because that's how much we would have paid just to get to the observation deck at The Top of the Rock without ordering any food.

    Well-worth the price of admission. Better views than other tourist venues in the building/island and you can drink some really nice cocktails. A must-see during your adult vacation (children not allowed). The staff are really friendly and not stuffy.

    For our wedding anniversary last year, I suggested to my wife to have drinks and light bites at Bar SixtyFive, and thanks to her, she made reservations herself, and coached me what to wear as well. On the day itself, getting to Rockefeller in time, getting in line in a jiffy, and being ushered to the elevator were all a breeze. We asked for a table and upon being seated ordered champagne, then their exquisite salmon platter next. Before the food was served, we went out to the open deck to enjoy the views of Midtown Manhattan with our champagne glasses, and took selfies and photos of each other, the majestic dusk skyline in the background. The food, it turned out, was excellent, all the more enriching our enjoyment of the champagne. It was time well used, money well spent, and an evening to remember for a long time. Until our next big date, that is.

    ASK FOR JANE! There are a lot of reasons to come here. The view is stunning, the cocktails are great and the food is outstanding. But this you already know and could probably read about that on this review site or any other. If you want to enhance your experience, ask for your server to be Jane. I have eaten at thousands and thousands of restaurants around the world and really have I seen a server with this much and care, kindness and humor. in fact, she would be driving decision why I would want to eat again because we had that much fun sitting in her section.

    Perfect intimate size venue with a perfect vantage point no matter where you stand. Acoustics are great and there is a bar area attached where sometimes you can take drinks from and in to the venue. I love that the stage is elevated.

    Heard several recommendations to come here instead of going to top of the Rock. I'm sure the view at top of the Rock would be better, but for us this was great! There's a line that gets formed starting around 4:15 if you want to get in right when it opens at 5. However, the line does move pretty decently once it gets open. The place can get pretty crowded for standing room only so would recommend calling ahead to get a table. Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there, but the drinks were pretty tasty and the view, although obscured by the tables lining the perimeter of the bar, was nice. Pictures can only be taken in certain spots and on busy evenings expect there to be lots of people waiting to take a pic of the empire state building.

    I only went for a drink without food and would rate it as an average bar with amazing views. It's obvious why you need to go at least once if you are in NYC. The view from the Rockefeller is the best. The bar allows less crowd than on the rooftop. Apart from that the drinks are average. Do book in advance if you can otherwise you will need to show up around 15 to 20 min before opening time to be first in line at the queue. Most times without reservation means standing tables only though. It's not as classy as expected: imagine a weird mix of dressed up couples and tourists in sports gear. In my eyes a must due to the views but that's about it. There are a ton of better bars in NYC.
