    While the food was good, the service was bad. The server didn't come to see us for a while, we waited for drinks a long time, 1 of the water glasses had lipstick all over it (eww), and when we finally got our food, he was nowhere to be found...

    The food was very good and the rooftop a very nice location. The waiter was friendly but despite the good number of staff working there and not a lot of customers for lunch the service was too slow.

    this is a great place for a fun drink with friends! The burger and shrimp risotto are stand outs. Other things like the truffle french fries were a soggy disappointment. My biggest issue is consistency with cocktail orders. I have ordered the "Sailor's Daughter" on multiple nights and each time there is something different about the drink. I also think that having a daily special would be a great addition as those who live in the area can only have the same thing so many times. Sign of the Whale is great for Sunday football or rooftop bar. Food and consistency need work though.

    Service was amazing and the menu, although not large, had a wide array of food choices. We started with buffalo wings and my husband had a pizza and I had the mahi mahi. Everything would have been amazing with less salt! The chef melded great ingredients together and it was a shame that the heavy hand with the salt shaker ( even in the wings and amazing homemade pizza dough) ruined it. Other then that it was a great place to try. If you are a vodka drinker try the yummy cucumber vodka they serve

    I was disappointed with my dinner, ordered GRILLED Srimp tacos (that' what its written in the menu) instead I got over cooked shell tacos with cold shrimp (it was tasteless) We will give them another try in a few months when they have their full menu to offer. They opened 2 weeks ago so the food options were very limited.

    Went w/a group & had drinks at the roof top bar which was a nice outlook of how it could be once the area is renovated. The cocktails was however bland! Attempted to dine downtstairs but had very limited menu since they were having a soft opening & apps that we tried were very disappointing! Bread/toast for the hummus was stale & empanadas were pretty empty & tasted worse than out of a frozen box. Yes it's soft opening but the good you offer should be of satisfying quality to attract more business. Service was fine til we spoke to mgr about the quality of the food & could only deduct 30% of the food items even though we didn't even eat it. We left shortly after not eating anything else & went to Paloma across the street, which was Devine!
