The view and atmosphere was wonderful. I'd like to go back in the summer.

Great service - the food was pretty good and the prices are reasonable. Dining on the roof can't be beat and best of all, my friends and I weren't rushed out as soon as we finished dessert. I'll be recommending this place on.

Everything was fabulous although i dont agree in the tip being added to the bill.It should be each person s decision how much he/she wants to leave for the services of the waiter.

I took my friend to this place for her birthday. We late but the staff was nice enough to get us seated right away. The food was delightful and drinks amazing. The only bad thing was that I was unaware of the fact that there was going to be a party and we ended up not having too much time to enjoy the view or the food.

We had a blast at Penthouse. We had a nine month old with us and it was such a pleasant experience. Great service and beautiful views.

Very nice place to eat. My doghter and me were just arrived from Europe and it was our first meeting with New York. The view is amazing. We ate some small food and had a fine service. When I come back to New York I will visit this penthouse again.

Great outdoor dining
Took my girlfriend there for her birthday dinner and it couldn't have been more perfect. The service, atmosphere, scenery, and food were excellent. They even brought over a small cake, candle for her and sang happy birthday to her. Best place with Mahattan atmosphere in Queens. I'm definitely going back there, I'm now curious about their night life.

great atmosphere & beautiful views!
This place is great for a special occasion or a nice romantic evening. great atmosphere and the view of the Queensboro bridge and Manhattan is really nice. Special made drinks are tasty and the food is great for having a few mixed apps or a full dinner. Dress casual and nice, this will be a great night out!

Great spot, quality food, but hot
Had a nice early - pre-theater dinner here. Great view of manhattan, nice rooftop outdoor dinning space. However, pictures on website show area at night and with canopy/glass enclosure drawn shut, so I thought this was air conditioned. It was very sunny and hot. Was dressed formally for night at theater - which was uncomfortable. Place in summer is for shorts and casual dining. Wish staff had noted this when I called about table.
Food was nice - solid quality for the price. Diverse menu, plenty to choose from - and decent quality drinks. Overall a nice experience, but i was misplaced on my purpose for the night.

I surprised my husband for his 28th birthday here without previously knowing where this restaurant was, how to get there and whether once there, we would actually end up liking it (website photos can often be misleading). Once we got there, pressed the button PH on the elevator, and stepped out into the patio, both of our mouths dropped open! The scenery, the view of Manhattan skyscrapers, the brightly lit bridge above us and the open blue night sky, all we were missing were violin players in the background. The food was great, the service was nice but above all, the scenery was breathtaking!

Would love to go back
We went on a Saturday night to celebrate a friends birthday. Our table was ready when we arrived and our server Megan was wonderful. The food and drinks were all excellent. None of us had any complaints. We can't wait to return. Bring your camera the views are amazing. Great place for a special occasion.

Romantic dinner location
The restaurant/bar on top of the Hotel has a fantastic night view of Queensboro Bridge and Manhattan Skyline (Chrysler, Empire!). Quite romantic. Service and food was excellent. We had Tuna and Salmon for dinner and enjoyed it very much. First I was in doubt whether to reserve a table or not because the location had only 3 stars on Yelp. However, after having had a great dinner we would recommend this location. It won't become our most favorite roof top bar, but it's definitely one of our top ten! If possible, come here by car/cap, it's an 8-10 minute walk from the train F/N/Q.

My husband and I were able to walk here because we live on Roosevelt Island. We were so so impressed-- the food was really delicious (I had sesame-crusted tuna), the service was great, and I loved the decor. We sat outside and there is a nice view over the river. The restaurant is only on the 6th floor, so it's not a huge panoramic view, but the skyline is nice and you can even see the new WTC building.

Food was fantastic and portions were just enough. The view was beautiful and the service was excellent. I would definitely go back. We enjoy eating outdoors and this place is definitely worth trying. Also, it was happy hour so drinks were very reasonable.

Everyone was complaining that
Everyone was complaining that 808 is not worth it. Apparently if you're walking from QBP train station, it definitely is worth the scary walk. The drinks weren't great at all ! But the ambiance was perfect. I was so worried that it wouldn't be great, esp because my date dislikes seafood, but when I arrived the live band, the view, the palm tree behind me, made it all the more perfect for my date and I. The waiter was frustrating, he'd come around once every 25 mins, and we'd have a list of things ready for him to take care of. It's romantically perfect, but the food was a 2.5 star rating.

Amazing view, great service
The amazing view ultimately brought me here for a small dinner with my mom and sis for my birthday. Service was great from the waitress, bus boy. And the manager spoke to us a few times too. The food is more Asian fusion, which is usually like and I think they could do so much more with it. The drinks are great. All in all, good experience and will be back. I highly recommend the flatbreads over any of the other food items.

Great Date Night!
Went to Penthouse 808 on a beautiful crisp night. We were a little nervous it would be a bit cold for the rooftop but the retractable roof was perfect, kept us warm while still being able to admire the Amazing view.
Food and ambience were both pretty great. Live music was a nice touch as well.

Weekend at the Ravel
I booked the Ravel Hotel for my husband's birthday. After looking at their website I read that they had a rooftop restaurant and decided to make to a reservation. Well, it was perfect!!!! The restaurant was exactly and exactly what I was looking for to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had an excellent meal, excellent service and the view was spectacular. After dinner we moved over to the lounge area and continued our evening with an after-dinner drink. The place was hopping they had a DJ during the beginning of our evening and then at 11PM a different DJ took over and started playing dance music. When our evening was over all we had to do was to take the elevator down to our room. IT WAS A PERFECT EVENING

Penthouse 808 Restaurant
The dining experience was very good. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday, and she loved it. The food was well proportioned for the price. The set up of the food as well was very good, it was an overall pleasant experience. For another occasion I would come back and recommend this place to anyone. I wish I would have gotten the waiters name because he was exceptional.
