Rainbow Grill - aka Dull Grill

JD must be rolling over in his grave. He built the Rockefeller centre to inspire people to greatness and the Rainbow Grill on top of the centre has the most perfect view of the city, only to be spoilt by extremely poor quality food, below average service and average decor. Do you think we will still pay $300 towards a pathetic dinner for 2, even if the drinks are flowing....never again and it pains me to think that JD's name or even NEW YORK is associated with this type of service. The only thing missing from this restaurant is the rats, which are probably in the kitchen. The website states that the Grill is 'fine dining', please explain to me what is fine about a frozen shrimp cocktail and fatty beef. The worst experience of life in New York....please, someone, have the decency to shut the place down or at least send a clear warning that the grill either changes or closes shop.

Went Here Expecting A Great Meal And Atmosphere But Was Very Disappointed. The View Was Great And The Seating Was not Bad, But The Food Was Mediocre At Best And The Price was Expensive.A Let Down To say The Least.

Overpriced and Mediocre

If you are looking for the most overpriced and mediocre food in the city, you will find it here! A simple salad, dried-out pasta, calamari, and a scallops entree together with two beers will set you back a cool $200. To add insult to injury, when I looked over the bill later ,(rushed to a show), the waiter had charged $10 for two nonexistent coffees. The lighting is too bright inside, the tables are close, and the floor shakes from the cattle stampede that never ends. But alas, the view: Save $150 and buy a couple tickets to the Top of the Rock and have dinner somewhere else.
