    Please don't do what I did and disregard the reviews thinking that you will just give this place a shot. You'll be better off spending your money some place where the food actually taste like it should be classified as food. A place that doesn't water down even the sodas. And where the staff doesn't look at you with total and utter shock when you ask them to explain a dish. Please, I beg of you. I for one will never eat here again.

    Whilst the food was good and the roof top setting very funky, we were disappointed with the really fast food service and rather brusk service from our waitress- our main course being served before we had finished our starters. Guests were being turned around in 40 mins!! Our request for tea and coffee didn't go down well either- we thought they would have rather served us more alcohol? The bar security staff were also rather heavy handed and officious!!

    Our order was ready less than 10 minutes after we ordered, which was definitely disconcerting, because it should take longer than that to cook chicken... The food wasn't good and the view was mostly of other rooftops and sidestreets. There are other rooftop restaurants that will give you a better view.

    It starts when you try to enter the hotel through the front door and the doorman won't let you in, but then tells you to go through the steak restaurant next door. You do and a hostess escorts you through a side door to take the elevator inside the hotel, where you are standing 20 feet from the door you could have easily just walked through... and goes downhill from there. It's on the roof but that's the best thing it has going for it. Sorta touristy, kinda tacky, the pitcher of margaritas were WAY too sweet, the food mediocre (too salty fish tacos) the help, so-so and the exit from the bossy elevator captain, "Stand over here. No, I have to split up your group... stand over there!", capped off my, "I'll never go back there again" feeling.

    We sat by a window overlooking St. Mary the Virgin Church. The view was beautiful. Once the sun set, the lights from the Times Square area washed over the rooftop of the church, adding to the ambiance of the restaurant. The food was very good--a collection of appetizers and small plates great for sharing. The tuna tartare and the truffle fries were our favorites.

    The place was beautiful, people who work there look very professional but do not act like it. While I dine there I notice the manager wasn't really accommodating to over 3 guest. He wasn't smiling it greeting tables just. My server looked very nice but have bad service, wasn't friendly and looked like she was annoyed. The only nice person was the host, who was very welcoming and sat us down before our reso.

    We had trouble looking for it I called for directions and they were not helpful. We got there we got our sits, and the table was not stable. The waiters was not very knowledgeable about the menu. I asked about the prefix menu and she said I don't know what that is. I had seen it online and outside at the entrence . The menu is bar food not to much to pick from. We order calamari and it was good. We order wings and they were ok. And my little one had the sliders and fries she liked the sliders but the fries had a weird taste. I order a mojito it was ok but they give me an old lime on it. I order a second drink I did not have the menu and the waiters again did not know. And last they did not have chocolate mousse cake which was disappointing.

    I booked dinner there for my partner's birthday, so it was just the two of us. The views aren't what they say they were, you sat on top of one another-tables too close. Very pricey; got two shareable plates, a basket of ff, and two drinks and it was just shy of $100. They will automatically add an 18% tip to your bill (whether you think the service wasworth it or not) then when you get the credit card slip, there was a line for additional gratuity. I would not recommend this place, not worth it. Would hate to have seen the bill if we ordered entrees.

    I must say despite the mix reviews, this place was great all around. I came here for my boyfriend bday and it was perfect. The drinks were really good, i would recommend safe haven.. the view was nice, expected more. The penne pasta was delicious! My bf had the signature chicken, that too was delicious. The bad service ppl complain about I experience none. Our waitress was so attentive & sweet. Overall great experience, i went on a Monday. For a nice dinner n drinks, enjoying the fall weather i would definitely come back and recommend this place.

    We went for pre-theatre drinks and appies and were pleasantly surprised. The servers and staff were friendly and courteous. The drinks were innovative and delish, and the appies were enjoyable. The menu has a nice selection. It was a nice cozy rooftop! In spite of the rain, we really enjoyed it.

    We came here after a show on a warm summer evening. The place was busy and crowded, in a fun location on the roof of a hotel. They had a DJ playing decent music. It was louder than it needed to be, considering there is no dance floor. We sat elbow-to-elbow with the other tables, and enjoyed our tapas. The prices were high, but consistent with similar places in the area, but the food was good. Drink prices were exceptionally high, though. The view is nothing special-it's the 12th floor on 47th St. so you're surrounded by much higher buildings, but at night, Times Square shines bright and you are completely surrounded by glowing windows, which is a very New York experience.

    I loved this place!!! Food was delious and ambiance was great We we not in a rush so service was fine and enjoyable, we didn't feel rushed to finish up either. It's not as family friendly even though my kids are 18 n 20 the place really prefers the over 21 crowd and they have a very random dress code. I saw guys in shorts n yet my son with collared button down and nice jeans was looked at twice But I didn't let that bother me we were seated and enjoyed the music food and sights. Very cool :) for our first rooftop dining experience

    I took an out of town guest here before seeing a show on a beautiful 85 degree Wednesday evening in August, and we were there around 6PM. Haven was a nice treat. The food wasn't amazing but it was quite good, and they accommodated adding 2 people to our reservation when we arrived. There are 2 bars and seating areas; the one when you first get off the elevator is quiet lively with a couple decent views. The lower bar area down a couple flights of stairs with less appealing views but tends to be less crowded and quieter. The dining service was quite good. Our food came quickly, and they got us in and out in the timeframe we had alotted. In all, we all enjoyed the experience. I would go back.

    Food was very good but the portions were small. My date and I had to order an appetizer after we ate because our meals did not fill us. But we were happy with the food quality. Had a margarita pitcher which was way overpriced but tasted good. The view was of a roof of a nearby building so that was disappointing. Ah and the tables; they were so small and so close that it was uncomfortable. I chose to wait to use the restroom because I didn't want to bother the other tables. Then when we had to leave we had to squeeze through two tables nearly knocking one of the people off their chairs! And we're not even big people!! That was the biggest negative for us. Other than that this place has potential. I can see it as a great night hot spot.

    Had an excellent meal here with a friend. Every piece of it was quite good. Two caveats. First, it was a little more expensive than it should be. Second, in particular, they charge for coffee refills even if you have a full meal. That's not appropriate. I will still probably go back, especially for drinks after work, but I would go back sooner and more often if it cost a bit less and coffee refills were free.

We ate after 11pm so we figured it would get busy and music would get louder and place would be a but more fun but we weren't much impressed.mi would recommend for a date but not a group of people.

    Some friends recommended Haven Rooftop after celebrating their son's birthday there. My daughter wanted to go before summer's end so I surprised her with Friday night dinner. The Haven is located on the rooftop of Sanctuary Hotel which is itself a very cool place. From the moment we arrived,we were made to feel welcome, doorman took us through the lobby to elevator & told us to take stairs from 9th floor up to Haven. At the top, we were greeted again very courteously, & though we were half an hour early for our reservation, we were sat immediately. I liked the way the tables and comfortable chairs were set up with bar in the corner. My margarita was delicious, the guacamole was perfect. Mesclun salad good. My daughter loved her pasta dish.
