Our very first time ever in NYC. I fell in love with this city that I want to move there. Everything about NY is breathtaking and amazing. The Empire State Building was surreal yet a little scary but we enjoyed it so much.

The light in this season helps having great views of NYC. The access was very fast and everything worked very fine.

I would suggest that you book a table at the restaurant (to avoid disappointment)... Re the menu, i'm afraid we ate from the 'A La Carte' options, so wouldn't be able to advise?? Enjoy!
