My travel agent recommended this lovely restaurant for brunch. We had reservations, which are recommended. Our table sat next to the window which looks out at the Rockefeller Center skating rink so that was fun. Food was great! The service was more than excellent!

Very beautiful location , staff is very kind but also the menu we have eaten is very very tasty . I love particullary lobster soup , berries cheescake. This place is not expensive considering where it is located and the location.

This is my first time eating at the Rock Center Café and it’s very underwhelming. We came for lunch. I have the Burger and my friend the falafel burger. The burger was ok but more of a tourist thing for $22 plus $2.00 for caramelized...More

I took out of towners here, not because I don't like them but because they insisted on going to a restaurant at Rockefeller Center (I don't blame them for that) even after I told them I had a previous bad experience here. The service was...More
