We went to the " igloo bar" for afternoon drinks. The place was beautiful, but we couldn't get a drink. Waited in line for about twenty minutes without much movement. We got fed up and left. Complained to reception people without any success. It was a shame because it was very nice on the rooftop. The view was spectacular. The... More

Absolutely stunning and beautiful views of NY especially of the Empire State Building at night. It was a dream and amazing in the fresh cold winter. This was a fantastic experience, I loved it so much. You have to visit. Good happy hour prices too

I had never heard of 230 Fifth but we were in the vicinity and gave it a go. It's claim to fame is twofold. It has a great view of the Empire State Building and has a roof terrace which is open Year-round even if it is freezing, which it was when we went there. They have fabric igloos and... More

We decided to go for a drink to check out the view before sunset, which is very good. But I wouldn't be caught eating a thing out of this restaurant-everything was filthy. I wouldn't even let my kids order French fries. There are better places if it's the view you're looking for.

Nice Food, Nice place but...We waited too long...a shame !! More than 20 min to have water or anything else...We 'd like to have a brunch but no one came to our table... many servers were working but nobody was able to serve us... they even refused to serve us with a shake of the head. I recommend the rooftop,... More

I had seen an article a few months back about how this place featured a rooftop with multicolor igloos you can sit in and kept it on my radar. My friend and I hopped on the train very last minute to NYC. I worked until 8 pm so we knew we weren't going to make it there until after 10pm... More

Been there many times. They have good food and drinks but it's too expensive. Especially the drinks are basically ice with a little something.

Last week I went to have my birthday drinks here. It was my first time visiting the place. We had just ordered our first drink from a blond barmaid and paid for it when the other bartender started to talk to us, teling us we should tip her. I was like, ok maybe later when we come back for another... More
