The food was very good and the menu inventive. I have managed to taste different types of food that I had never eaten before (including a fish likened to a giant piranha). Among our group, the food mostly hit, although there were a couple

This is a very pretty restaurant in the Rockefeller Center concourse, a building I worked in for ten years. It's lovely to sit here and watch the skaters in the winter but I have found the food to be very average and very high priced. The bartender, however, are top notch and you can get a really good drink here.

This is a high priced seafood restaurant offering great service and some very interesting menu options - this was the first time I ate something with a foam on it, it was interesting. The view of the Rockefeller rink is what makes it worthwhile for me. Definitely overpriced but you are getting a very gourmet experience.

We had a fabulous time at this restuarant. It is in Rockerfell Plaza and we had seats by the window and we were able to watch the skaters. The food and the service was just wonderful. Expensive but worth every penny. We loved it.
