Stopped in for a quick lunch before the movies. The service was just above terrible, the coffee brewed yesterday but the Caesar Salad was terrific! Go figure.

Where else can you feel like you are above the clouds and still have to heart of NY just a step away? Beautiful large windows allow you to enjoy it all. Service was excellent. Food very well done and presented. It was a terrific surprise for us

Above is a great find in a sea of lights in the Times Square area. A great location for entertaining before the theater or for a romantic meal. The bar was welcoming and friendly. The bartender was accomodating on the switch to our table. The appetizers were exceptional. The main course was delicious and nicely prepared. Above's decor is very warm and is a nice change from the glitzy exterior.

The views are far from spectacular. The restaurant was full of tourists and screaming babies. The service was horrible, our water glasses were never filled, nor were we asked if we wanted or needed anything else after we were served. We had to wave frantically to get our check. The food was actually half decent, but I would never go back. Also, expect a marketing spiel on a future stay at the hotel from the counterman when you get off the elevator.
