Excellent service, gorgeous views, lousy food! Felt mass produced and buffet area was messy. Young staff trying their best. The $65 price ticket (included tip & gondola) did not deliver as far as food quality.

While the service is good and the food is decent, the experience really requires Mother Nature's cooperation. As the name indicates, you go to the Observatory for the outlook and view. Unfortunately, we got socked in with a thick fog and couldn't even see the...More
