  • "Towering over downtown Long Beach and nearby Pike, Aquarium, Queen Mary and yes 4th of July firework spectacular. We love this place. It is on the pricey side but for a special occasion you cant go wrong."

  • "I took my fiance to the sky room for her birthday. The waiter was pleasant and the food was great. Best of all, the view made for a very special evening"

  • "We made a reservation and we were still made to wait for 30 minutes. We checked in and was told to wait at the bar for our table. Everybody else waiting had been given tables after 30 minutes except us. We were the only ones left in the bar waiting for our table. Finally, a lady asked for the last name of the person who made the reservation and that's when we were led to our table, they obviously forgot about us."

  • "A group of five of us dined here on Saturday night when we had the opportunity to be there for the ballroom style dancing to the live music. Our server was energetic and lots of fun, making great recommendations and guiding us through the evening at our own pace. We brought two bottles of our own cellared wine ($25 apiece corkage) to have with dinner. Everyone was delighted with their cocktails, salads, and choices of entrees. One of us had the filet, another had the lamb, two of us had the black cod, and I had the duck. The accompaniments to each entree was thoughtful and enhanced each dish. The band started at 8:00 and the dance floor started to fill with fabulous diversity. This was our first time here, and won't be our last."

  • "I visited Sky Room after about a 5 year hiatus from the place. During this time the surrounding establishments in the area have certainly improved and the variety of choices is far greater than in the past. I'd have to say Sky Room has more than kept up, they have improved the menu and quality, and the service and wait time is better than ever. Highly recommend to visit for some excellent faire, incredible views, and pleasant ambience."

  • "The Sky room is still the place to go for a romantic, delicious dinner. They are once again honoring request with reservations for seating locations, something that was virtually ignored in the past. I believe a new manager has made the change for the better. The meal was impeccable and the service was outstanding. This is my favorite restaurant."

  • "Great tasting food. Perfectly prepared cocktails and the service was spot on."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The view from the Sky Room is great and the ambience is also -- original art deco. The service is always good, not overly intrusive but attentive. The wine list is extensive - and expensive. The food is always nicely prepared -- but also at the top of the price charts -- and the menu is pretty much standard dinner-house fare. But the package is really nice -- a fun special occasion place. If they would trim the prices a bit, we would come here more than a couple of times a year."

  • "We celebrated a big anniversary there and it was just the right kind of place to do that. From the ride up in the elevator hearing the history of the building to the impeccable service, this was not your typical Saturday night restaurant. I would consider it an expensive restaurant and luckily for us, we had a gift certificate."

  • "i took my father there to celebrate father's day and we had a wonderful time. my dad was very happy with everything and he did not want to leave. as a matter of fact he is planning on taking my mom there for their 44th anniversary. Thank you so much for this wonderful weekend. Ill be seeing you soon too."

  • "The building entrance is depressing, but once the elevator attendant greets you and takes you to the top floor restaurant, it's fabulous! The food was outstanding, and our waiter was excellent! We would go back again, if Long Beach was our destination."

  • "I came here for the 1st time for my 5 year anniversary w/ my bf.The view is absolutely beautiful.The atmosphere was a bit dissappointing b4 the sun goes down.You are surrounded by windows so there really isn't that much you can do.The napkin in the wine glass is a bit outdated to me. But when the sun goes down, thats when the magic happens.The view of the Long Beach city lights is amazing & w/ a candle lit dinner, you can't help but to feel the romance. It was quite busy, which I didn't expect for a Tues. night.We could hear the roar of the crowds & the conversations around us.It made it slightly difficult to focus on the reason I was there & the fact that my bf was proposing! Overall, it was an amazing experience & the food was fantastic!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The restaurant was beautiful. Food and cocktails were beautifully presented. The view of the city and ocean was great. There was just renovation going on at the entrance to the restaurant. The construction on the ground floor ruined the ambiance. For a place like this where they try to present an atmosphere of elegance and fine dining, they should have had a better atmosphere at the ground floor entrance."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We chose this place to celebrate our daughters graduation. Unfortunately the service was very slow. We had been waiting at a table for close to an hour when the server showed up and asked us if we needed a little more time!!! The staff was very friendly yet appeared to lack the training of working in an upscale restaurant. For instance the food arrived at the table for one person at a time, rather than all all once as is customary in better establishments. The food was tasty, but most dishes too rich. Maybe for Long Beach it is a good place to go, I'm a bit jaded as I live and dine out frequently in the Napa Valley, where restaurants really have figured out how it is done. Aside from the service glitches we had a great time."

  • "I was looking for a unique and local restaurant to kick off a business weekend in Long Beach. Had always wanted to try the Sky Room so I booked a party of 8 on a Friday night. The Sky Room delivered everything I was in search of... Great views, great food, great service. I highly recommend it for a romantic or unique memorable dining experience! "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Not the Sky Room we remember. The service was fine. Our server, Adam, did a great job. We were seated at a table right near the dance floor and couldn't carry on a conversation except in between songs! We should have requested a different table, so that was our fault. While our party was dressed in suits for the gentlemen and nice dresses for the ladies, guests at other tables were there in shorts and baseball caps! When making the reservation, we were trying to decide between the Sky Room and Sir Winston's. Wish we would have gone to Sir Winston's."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Our Saturday night at the Sky Room was a good experience, but not great and really not commensurate with the menu prices. First, the ambiance is excellent even if quite dated, the band was fantastic, and the dance space is just about perfect. The food however (particularly pasta and mushroom appetizers) is not at all worth the price. There are better gourmet establishments just down the street. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The lobster Mac & cheese and the chanterelle/trumpet mushroom appetizers were exceptional and the lamb chops, superb. The photos are vintage and the ambiance is quite romantic. The only downside is that they've turned the upper viewing area into a smoker's/cocktail lounge."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We had a 5:30pm reservation. We arrive at 5:15pm and the doors are locked. We are let in at 5:30 and escorted the the restaurant where we wait again to be seated due to the wait staff being in a meeting. I then pay the valet parking with a credit card in the restaurant only and the valet parking people want me to pay again. Wow. "

  • "We were there from 6:30 till 8:30. We had wine, appetizer, and one main dish. The waiter and his assistant was very nice and firendly. The scene was very nice. It was very upscale, nice scenic restaurant and yet very comfortable and not intimidating to people who has not been to upscale restaurant."

  • "Sky Room has a Roaring 20's decor, which lends a great ambience. On some nights the room even boasts diners dressed in flapper costumes straight out of The Great Gatsby. Dinner there is nice, with a little dance floor. And people really dance there! Service is wonderful, and I liked the food. Try the duck and steak, medium rare. Both are fabulous."

  • "This was our second time there and this time we invited our cousins and they loved the food and enjoyed Tino's Band as well. We definitely, would come again. But I think if Tino would change it a little it would be better. To us it seemed like he played all the same songs as the first time we went. I'm thinking for the regulars who attend and dance so beautifully. The service is excellent and the food is delicious!"

  • "Appetizers, Veal chop, Prime rib eye, dessert, and champagne....all amazing. It was a great night all around. Service, food, location were all winners. A special thank you to: JT, our server, who was friendly, attentive, and didn't miss a beat. Jonathan, the owner, whose wine knowledge and hands-on approach to customer service is nothing less than exceptional."

  • "Everything about this art-deco gem is fantastic - food, fantastic waiters, vintage music and most of all the 360 degree views of Ocean, City, lights, (hey we could even see downtown LA and the Hollywood sign)!! It's expensive - everything is a la carte and a very modest dinner for two with entree, salad, one drink, and coffee will be $200. Plan on more if you want more drinks, appetizers or dessert. But worth it for special occasions and business dinners. Food is outstanding. Best place to eat in Long Beach, and DEFINITELY a vintage, retro experience. Dress up (although not required most people do). There is even an elevator man! "

  • "I went here with my girlfriend for a romantic dinner, and it was really fantastic. The appetizers were profound, and the dinner even more so. The music was really fantastic and lightened the mood, though it was a bit loud and made it hard for me to hear my partner. The service was spectacular until the end, where our waitress accidentally charged us for bottled water (we didn't get any) and took a long time to return our check. Besides that, the dinner was fantastic, and a really memorable experience. A slow dance song lined up perfectly when we were done eating, too, which was a great coincidence. Overall a great experience that could have been improved on with better service and slightly less noise. "
