    An enjoyable spot, with the bar area bright and happy. The outdoor areas had enough heaters to keep it comfortable. The food was delicious, and I especially liked the opportunity to purchase smaller plates. The fried calamari was especially good.

    Our group of 5 had a great time recently at Rooftop. We met up at the bar at about 5:30. The first person there took a while to have her order taken, it seems that the bartenders (though numerous) each assumed someone else was taking care of her. They were apologetic and attentive once they realized the oops, and to the rest of our group as they trickled in. We were seated outside (which is what we had asked for in our reservation) promptly, and our server was attentive and timely, even though she was working several other tables. The music and crowd noise in the bar became a bit much for us to hear our conversation, but we felt quite comfortable on the deck, and enjoyed the background music and fire warmers as we gazed at the sunset. :)

    I enjoyed the food and presentation VERY much. It has a classy element to it but also it can cater to a younger clothes barely there kinda crowd so The class of the decor ( which is outstanding) sometimes did not match the clients. If you are not in that younger jet set....just be prepared....I don't fall in that dressing naked category so....keep that in mind. BUT if you can asked to be seated in a private booth and go between 5pm-9pm you will be less likely to be shocked as scantly dressed women walk by! BUT the food, service décor is OUTSTANDING...

    Very nice decor and ambience. Lots of space for groups, but there are also some very intimate tables in the back of the restaurant. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. I went on a Monday evening, so it wasn't busy at all. The food was good, but basically it's a very pricey tapas bar.

    Very easy booking this venue on OpenTable. The outside dining is fun and casual although the piped in music was a little loud for conversation. The nuances of bookings were well covered online - cannot reserve outside seating later int eh week as it reverts to first come first served, etc. We were there at the end of happy hour and enjoyed discounted drinks & appetizers for the table, but had to correct the bill when it came as prices had not been adjusted. Tuesdays are half off wine bottles, added bonus! Inventive menu with great flavor choices, good sized portions for what is offered, a bit pricey. A little unfortunate that there is a charge to share plates and that children may not sit outside but I'd recommend the experience.

    Awesome bar scene! Great drinks and good bartenders. We had dinner there and it wasn't all that great. I had the Paella which is a great dish down south, but not what a typical Paella dish should look or taste like. Clams on a halfshell were awesome however! Definitely a place for finger food and apps. They have opportunity to take dinner to the next level. The prices were reasonable so the value isn't all that bad if you want a nice cool outdoor bar scene. Just don't go hungry expecting top notch food.

    I live less than a mile away and pass it every day. Feedback from my critics was, pricy, especially the drinks (margaretita's). We have many choices in Gbury and surroundings, so it took a while. Quite Sunday, so good service, food and cocktails, and dessert, got to banter with staff too!

    The kitchen simply does not have their act together, and the poor servers have to bust tail trying to compensate for their mistakes. They have presentation down, but our entrees took forever only to come out cold and one of them inedible (I was served raw rice sautéed in oil- not exaggerating). Our server and manager were profusely apologetic and did everything they could to right the situation... which was appreciated, but jeez. The entree was comped, and we also got a free dessert. The chocolate cake, while huge, was nothing like it was described on the menu, and clearly defrosted. My banana parfait had chunks of plain cream cheese in it and was topped with cool whip. A cocktail, dinner salad, app, sandwich, and dessert- $82! No thanks :(

    Food & atmosphere were great! A very fun & vibrant place to be. The staff, while all VERY friendly, seemed very overwhelmed and confused. Maybe because they had a huge party but we waited a long time for someone to come help us then we were passed to about 5 different servers-there were only 2 of us! Hopefully it was just an off night because it is a good place to go.

    I've been to Rooftop 120 before for the nightlife piece of it. This was a good experience as it was more upscale and classy. I've also been there for happy hour in the nicer weather and this is a really nice experience as well. I highly recommend it. But this last time I was there everything was on par as usual but we got to "tour" their more formal dining and lounge area and it's so beautiful! It's more romantic and very classy. It would be a great spot for a special occasion dinner without being too stuffy. I love this place.

    I wasn't too enthused with our waiter. He was helpful when one of the guest at our table needed help choosing a meal option. However, the remainder of the night with our server was poor. We always had to ask him or another server to fill our waters even when he walked past them when empty. He hardly stopped by our table. That I only noticed because he paid more attention to his other table he waited on. In the dinning area there were only 3 dinner parties, our table included. Maybe the server was tired and just exhausted from a long day. I really loved the tomato soup. I didn't enjoy the wings and fries as they were more salty that usual. The ambiance there is great. Its a good idea for a get together or a date night.

    Gave this place a second shot thinking it might be nice to sit outside around the heat lamps. Even though the clientele is typically jersey shore (not my thing). Found out the outdoor seating is no longer year round and the jersey shore meat heads were in full swing. Add to that the bartender made the wrong drinks and the waitress brought them over anyway asking us if we wouldn't mind drinking them. But that if we really wanted what we originally ordered she'd take them back. Ridiculous. And to top it all off, the reason we went was to have dessert but we were extremely disappointed when we were served obviously frozen junk. Will never go back to this place. Everything about it is fake and ridiculous. Too bad because its an awesome venue.

    The menu is short but interesting. Best option is to mix small plates. Bar is active, energetic and can get noisy, abuts an outside patio dining area, but bar is separated by glass doors from inside dining area so bar noise never intrudes inside. Unusual floor plan inside keeps tables private and keeps noise from building too much while still appearing lively. Place is known for signature cocktails and there are always a few custom creations on the menu. Wine list is limited but good. Moderately priced. Definitely worth a visit but pay special attention to small plates whether you share them or not. Wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable, reasonably attentive without smothering. We will go back for sure. One negative can be parking.

    Took hubby there for birthday. We split a few "sharing plates" - salad w/cherries, buffalo chicken egg rolls (my new fave, especially the sauces), chicken tandoori (so meaty and hubby loved cucumber dill sauce) and spicy flatbread. Too full for dessert! Best part was the low lit and quiet atmosphere, with window-view table. Not so great is the parking situation, but we finally found a spot across the street in the post office lot and didn't mind walking between the snow banks on a clear cold night! The manager (?) stopped by our table and the owner greeted us on our way out. Hope they are successful with their dinner business (in addition to their outdoor deck/bar scene).

    I thought that the atmosphere was great for intimate dining. They made accommodations to fit my party of 15. It seems to me that there is an abundance of focus on ambiance and not so much on quality of food. The truffle fries were okay, the buffalo chicken eggrolls seemed a little burnt, the spinach and artichoke dip with chips were fine. The lobster ravioli was good, the shrimp and lobster scampi was soupy and salty and the salmon was good, but the drinks were great!

    My date and I visited Rooftop 120 last Friday and had a great time. We were seated in a cozy booth that allowed us to be close and comfortable. The staff was outstanding and gave us just the right amount of attention. While the menu selection isn't vast the variety is perfect. Everything from the salads to the main course to dessert was excellent. 4 hours flew by and we were both very satisfied. We will definitely be back.

    It's unfortunate that the salmon was prepared with so much salt, as it honestly ruined the otherwise perfectly prepared entree (my girlfriend agreed, she ordered the same meal). Then, for some reason, there were two pats of butter just placed on top of the salmon. I am not sure if the butter was supposed to melt, but (not knowing what it was at first), I put an entire pat in my mouth and was not at all pleased. We also shared the Red Velvet Cake that had to have come straight out of the refrigerator, so it was pretty much non-descript. In all, it was not the best experience, but I would try Rooftop 120 again since it's such a one-of-a-kind restaurant.

    Food wasn't the best. I can think of a at least 10 restaurants with better food. The service on the other hand was awesome. Probably the best that we've had. Restaurant is in a great location and it's beautiful inside. Very cozy and intimate. Definitely, no kids. Wine and drinks selection was good. If you're on a budget, this isn't the place to dine at. Just an FYI..... Definitely would go back, but in no rush.
