There are practically an unlimited number of restaurants in New York City! The number is cut way down when you’re looking for fine dining with a great view. If you want to take it up a step further and you’re looking for fine dining, a magnificent view and a rotating dining room then you would have to choose The View restaurant at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square. The location is absolutely fantastic!
The dining room is quite large but the way that it’s designed makes it feel quite intimate. Throughout the entire two-week trip to New York, the best service that I had was at The View. Everyone was super friendly and very attentive to all of our needs. Love is in the air.
We decided to start with some cocktails to get the digestive juices flowing! A great way to start the evening. Not too long after our cocktails and it was time to get to our first set of appetizers. The crab cake jumped out at me so I went with that. What a magnificent choice it was! Amazing flavor and super moist.
Throughout the meal, the chef was kind enough to send over little bites here and there and each were extraordinary! Feeling VIP aka “very important Pierre.”
I really feel that you can judge a restaurant quite well by how they cook their steaks. Let’s be honest, if you can’t cook meat properly then you’re nothing. Nothing I tell you! Luckily the steak that I ordered was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth like butter. Smiles all around. There was a large list of sides to choose from to accompany the meat and I went with some red cabbage which was wonderful and a nice contrast to the meat.
After the entrees we went with two desserts and my favorite had to be the pineapple cake. The pineapple sauce that was on the cake was absolutely magnificent. Of course you know that I had to order an espresso to accompany the dessert. Always an amazing combination!
When we were sufficiently stuffed it was finally time to wrap up our evening and retire to Pierre’s suite. The restaurant has a very strong offering. We really enjoyed fantastic service, wonderful food and a splendid view. You really can’t ask for more! This is not just a tourist restaurant. It’s great all around and next time you have a chance you should The View restaurant in New York City!
