This fancy place, with the Empire State Building in full view, was a great place to celebrate a friend's wedding. There was dancing, delicious hors d'oeuvres and the only thing missing was a main course!

We visited the Skylark based on a review we had read. It is very true you get one of the best views of Empire State Building, however the service was mediocre. We never ever received the basics such as a glass of water. We requested...More

Absolutely beautiful view. Wasn't really crowded so had room to sit and enjoy myself. Got a long island, 18$ (well 23$ after tip). Definitely worth the price. Strong drink, even AFTER the ice melted. Also, you're not necessarily paying for the drink, you're paying for...More
