Diner Reviews
  • "Didn't know about this place hidden far west in Hells Kitchen. Elevator to the roof was the tip off that this would be a worthwhile brunch. Had to wait for our friends and the staff was all over us in a good way to get us comfortable in any way we wanted. Once seated the drinks and food fun began. Great selection for brunch. Wonderful dishes well prepared and the basket of muffins was wonderful. 1 comment is that perhaps there could have been some breads as well to go with the brunch fare. Will definitely be back. Especially since one of the other advantages of the place is that we had no trouble finding parking less than 2 blocks away so quite accessible too."

  • "Brought my wife for a Friday night out. Once you're there is good, and food was great (especially the sliders and a great mojito). Also the service was very good (drinks and food did not delay) and were very attentive. HOWEVER, the entrance to the building should be revamped or given a more "upscale" look....this is especially since the area itself is dry and "warehousy-looking". Also the entrance guy, who looked like a bouncer, was assisting 2 policemen right there and did not tell us what floor it was once at the elevator. He left with the cops on the 3rd floor. Once at the lounge, you could immediately notice that the pillows are dirty/worn out and even torn apart. This must be updated/fixed and will make a big difference!! Thanks."

  • "I brought my wife here to try and get in a nice rooftop restaurant dinner and watch the sunset. The view was so so and the setting was ok but the food was just plain aweful. Service was not much better although they did try and make up for the poor food. Saveyour money and go somewhere else!!!"

  • "We really enjoyed Rooftop48, the food was excellent. We absolutely loved the Sea Bass and the specialty drinks were fantastic."

  • "Not much need to be said other than that our food took hours to come out(we had to complain to the manager and the table next to us complained twice), the table was so poorly attended that I had to go to the backroom to get our table's water and utensils myself, I had to bring our bill to the table myself, and they charged us 20% gratuity for 4 people for this appalling service because "they are so busy right now". Also, I was expecting a chill, romantic brunch, but the restaurant killed the mood by blasting club music. It was the most stressful restaurant experience I ever had and a total waste of 3 hours of my life. If you want to serve yourself food and blast your ears out on a Sunday morning, this would be a great place for you."

  • "We have been to Rooftop 48 for dinner twice when it was ZBar and the service was impeccable the food amazing, an overall great experience. Brunch on Sunday was a disaster. The service was horrendous. It took 45 minutes to get a drink and I ordered a Bellini and was served a Mimosa, when I told the waiter it wasn't a Bellini he told me it was, I had to call a manager over to get the right drink. 40 minutes later we were served a second drink and given (after we complained) a basket of complimentary Danish, again I was given a Mimosa instead of a Bellini and had to argue with the server to get the right drink. After another 40 minutes of waiting for our food and watching people who arrived after us being served we left. So disappointing!"

  • "I rarely write reviews, but my experience was bad enough that I feel I must write something. The service was by far the worst. We waited an hour for the waiter to come by. The music was way too loud. When the food finally came, we had to wait a long time to get utensils and napkins. Don't recommend this place."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "They charge you 40% of a service charge and gratuity. We refused to pay that portion and made the manager remove the extra charge. Next day we found out one of the employees used our credit card number to purchase 300.00 which we were informed of by fraud alert. I will never recommend This restaurant to anyone."

  • "Although outdoors, there is not a great view and they do not offer a lot of shade. The DJ music was way too loud for a Sunday brunch. We had to go up and ask for service several times - to get water, to check on our order and then to ask a question about our bill. Then they forgot to place our order so we were waiting for our food for over an hour and a half - if we hadn't asked about it, we would have never gotten served. Even with a groupon deal, this was not worth it."

  • "We went for dinner, the restaurant was empty, the music was super loud and everything was terrible! We order drinks. My husband waits over 45 min to get his glass of wine. Nobody apologizes for the delay. About 1 hour after taking the order, the waiter comes back to double check it. He hasn't fired anything yet. After another hour wait, the starters finally come, my husband's dish is wrong (tuna trio instead of tuna tacos). Nobody apologizes again and they say that they can eventually change it but it will take about 15 min. We keep it but ask for banana plantains to compensate. Mains are ok. My salad comes without shrimps. Paella is disgusting. They charge us for everything (even the plantains) adding a 20% gratuity for a party of 4!"

  • "odd that the sliders are 15 bucks and they have no sides available in the weekly menu yet they have a regular burger ( a larger slider) with yellow tomato onion and FRIES. Yummy fries at that. Choose wisely. Bring a few pals get a good bottle of red and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • "I went to Rooftop48 with a Livingsocial coupon which cost me $45. I was given the brunch menu which for two people was $46. When the waiter brought the bill he wrote that based on the coupon the bill would have been $90. I received nothing more than what was on the brunch menu. I tipped based on the coupon but was annoyed because there was no saving and the tip(which I gave) was significant."

  • "My husband and I dined here for brunch. Loved the ambiance. Was very romantic and fun at the same time. Would love to have a scenic dinner here with my husband to see the place lit up at night. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was very flavorful. However, there is not a large selection. Please note that the small plates are small. Therefore, if you are looking for a meal make sure to get the share plate. The views were spectacular. It was raining when we went, but I would love to go back when I could sit outside. The noise level was a little too loud, but it was definitely worth going to. "

  • "Had a great brunch here, the eggs benedict is very good as is the guacamole trio. Only suggestion would be to have some umbrellas available because it gets VERY hot on the sunny roof, and since the roof is not that high up it does not get very breezy. Service was a little slow, my water glass was left empty for too long too many times."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We came here with a living social deal. We were asked no less than 4 times for the coupon. Even when we just asked for water....we were asked for the coupon again....after showing it to several people beforehand. We were supposed to get 2 baskets of muffins, which they did not serve until we asked...and even then, we got 1. The mimosa carafes were brought out to the table, and were not even covered or put on ice. It was a hot sunny day and there were no umbrellas so they got hot. When the food came out, one person had a missing avocado, and I had a missing biscuit. The biscuit was brought out, but when we mentioned the avocado, they said it would have to be ordered separately, even though it was listed on the menu as part of the burger. "

  • "The food is amazing, the service left a little to be desired- there were only 3-4 other tables there at that time but our server was no where to be found a lot of the times that we needed or wanted something. But the place has a great view and delicious food! "

  • "The food here is incredible. The mimosas are made with the freshest squeezed orange juice, the baskets of pastries are delectable and the selection of brunch items we ordered were all to die for. The prices are moderate and I would definitely go back for the food and the ambiance, however make sure you have lots of time to spare because almost none of the wait staff know what they are doing and you will be waiting awhile and constantly correcting their mistakes.

  • "Went during the night time for some wine and appetizers. The service was top notch and our waiter was super attentive. I think they had a sommelier on site who recommended a really good Merlot wine. We had the guacamole which was SO good, I just wish it brought more. The shrimp tacos and the carne enchiplotados one and they were delicious. The feel is very upscale and stylish and I love the restaurant decor. The view was perhaps one of my favorite parts, it was amazing and I can't wait to go back during the daytime. We will def. be back for brunch hours because they have a really nice bottomless deal for about $28.00! I highly recommend this spot for special occasions, or just to spend a really nice afternoon/evening. "

  • "The ambience of rooftop dining is great on a sunny day, but the service was so slow and the food (we went for brunch) the burger seemed appetizing and a well worth it serving, but it was dry. The salmon and Classic Benedict were small- possibly quail eggs, but the side potatoes were delicious. I would recommend this place if you were just in it for the ambience, but not if you were looking to get your money's worth or if you were a foodie. Even the brunch drink pitchers (included with the meal) were small. It's kid friendly as in you don't feel shunned for bringing children, but keep in mind there is no children's menu. There's $16 pancakes...and juice (I don't remember but it was like $4 or $5). "

  • "I took my mom here for Easter brunch on our first trip to NY from Chicago. I chose this place because of their brunch prix fixe special. Everyone was friendly&the service was prompt but it didn't seem like they had everything together. The servers didn't know what came with the special until after we ordered. They came back to say an item wasn't included, when we opted for one that was they still brought the original item. They weren't clear on the bellini flavors; I ordered passion fruit & drank it but when I asked for another they said didn't have passion fruit. Laslty, the inside of my biscuit was raw. The server took it&brought a fully cooked one that was great. Despite the lack of knowledge, the food was good&we still had a great time!"

The setting was great...except was told they weren't seating anyone outside and then proceeded to see that certain people were dining outside."

Our waiter was nice but when he found out we had a voucher, we could clearly tell he was disappointed. He probably assume he wasn't going to get tipped well but he was. The manager was great. He came around our table a couple of times to check how everything was and even gave us free shots."
