Diner Reviews
  • "Service was impeccable. Food was very tasty, expertly prepared with a fantastic presentation. Our visit to The Sky Room was prompted by Dine LA and it was an exceptional way to experience the restaurant and will result in our return."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "A great place for a special occasion. Pricey. Food is great. Great view."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This is my go to place when I want to have good food, friendly service and amazing ambiance."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Came here for DineLA and went in with high expectations seeing that it was a $45 menu. I think the money was more for the ambiance&service, rather than the food itself. I think evenly, some plates were outstanding, but others were not great at all... not even memorable. Maybe it was the DineLA menu that provided mediocre selections, but it is a place I'd come back for the view and service."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Been to The Sky Room a few times. Had dinner there on the dineLA menu. The Sky Room has become one of the few restaurants I feel that I can order anything off of the menu and know that I'll love it. They had a calamari appetizer I hadn't seen before. It was a real fine. I'd always had the crab cakes before, but the calamari is my new favorite. The salmon has been cooked perfectly every time we've ordered it. Slightly crispy on top, soft, flaky and delicious throughout. Some work was being done to the building in preparation of the building's 90th anniversary coming up. The manager came around to the table during our meal to say hello, chat a bit, and answer questions about the dishes we'd ordered. I really like this place."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The drinks were fantasic, the food was delicious... But a tad bit salty, and that's coming from a person who loves salty food. The view and desserts were disappointing. There is no view of the sunset, it makes no difference where you are seated. If you have a view of the ocean, there is no opportunity to watch the sunset. Food was great and our waiter Jerry offered great suggestions. I enjoyed everything but the dessert. We boxed it up and took it home thinking we'd enjoy it more when we weren't so full... But it just isn't of good quality. The bread pudding is rubbery, which makes me think it was reheated in a microwave. For the price paid, I expected edible desserts."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The minute you enter the building, you know it's going to be a special dining experience! The food, the view, the cosmopolitan, and the service were all top notch. I don't think I've had duck that I truly enjoyed every bite. Oh, and the desserts are not to be missed. Dine LA was an excellent way to try this establishment; I will be back soon!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Beautiful views, nice Art Deco interior. Great wait staff. Crab cakes were excellent, ravioli perfect, bread is outstanding and the scallops over lobster potatoes were divine. Best restaurant in Long Beach."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We have been to the Sky Room over the years for several special occasion's, and this was my husbands 70 B.day. We went early to have drinks upstairs, only to find it was VERY dirty. We stayed for the view only. Our sever was excellent but my dinner wasn't to my surprise. I ordered the Game Hen it came very dry and the Surprise rice was also. I shared my dismay with the server thinking she would bring the Mg. but didn't. I have always been very happy to tell our friends about the wonderful food, atmosphere, bar service. This is the one time I can't. Your Upstairs really needs a washing."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "This was my second time coming back to The Sky Room for DineLA of all things. As I recall I had the waiter Marty last year. He's a fantastic waiter and his selection for wines versus the on menu wine pairing was much better. Not to mention Marty is a character which made the dining experience bar none as being one of the best I've had in a while. The Scallops and lobster mash which my significant other had was probably the best dish that night only followed by the very filling bread pudding I had. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for a scenic as well as a memorable experience."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Great view of Long Beach and good service. The roast duck was excellent. Creme brulee and fresh berry Napoleon were wonderful desserts. They even have live singer after 8pm."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Decided to dine during DineLA and loved the experience! The food was delish!! The stuffed calamari is a must try, the scallops were cooked perfectly and the bison short ribs were also so yummy! Desserts were delish also!! The live band and the view made the experience just more awesome! Then the cherries on top, was the fact that we could go to the rooftop bar and have drinks and dance! Our server was so funny and had great pointers! Valet parking available"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Everyone from the moment you walk in the building was very cordial. The elevator attendant was very friendly and extra attentive. Our waiter was pleasant and efficient. The views were breathtaking and the setting was romantic. It was my wife's and my first time there and we both loved it. We'll definitely be back. Thank you!!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We dined here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. I requested window seating and was happily accommodated by the staff. I had an Old Fashioned and she had a sort of Blackberry Mojito - both were delicious. My girlfriend ordered off the Dine LA menu and got crab-stuffed calamari, scallops, duck, and creme brulee. She was pleased with all each dish. I ordered off the regular menu getting lobster mac n cheese and filet mignon - both were amazing! The atmosphere is fun and different. I felt like I had traveled back in time to the early 90s (when I suspect they last remodeled). While one might argue that an update is necessary, I'd argue that the restaurant would lose some nostalgia. All in all it was a great restaurant and we'll be back!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The reason I came here was for the setting (date night). I wasn't expecting great food because I knew this would be a place that is known for the setting rather than te food. The places is in a desperate need of an update along with the food. For dinner I had the braised short ribs. The dish was flavorless. Braised short ribs are supposed to be tender and this was not. Service was subpar as well. It was difficult to find our server when trying to get a menu, water or just ordering. I was rather disappointed given the price point."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Came here with the gf and two others. We went during Dine LA. Was expecting small portions to try and wasn't sure what to expect from the food. I'm was surprised and impressed with their portion size and quality of food. Everything from appetizer to dessert was delicious. Everyone agreed, not only myself. I would definitely come back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "They are doing some renovations so entrance was all in construction. Elevators are old. Ambience is OK, nothing special. view is nice at night. At day time it's just a view of harbor. I kinda expected a beach view but got a harbor view. Service was OK. One waiter was obnoxious, making jokes about me and my husband's anniversary and asking why we don't wear our rings - repeatedly. Food was OK. Tasty but pretty pricey and not that good for the cost."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Upon entrance, my date and I were lost in the long hallway walk to the hidden elevator, which later we were told the person whose job was to direct patrons, she was on break.We arrived a few minutes early, however, on our way to be seated, the hostess got into what would have been a very lengthy argument with another patron if I had not demanded immediate seating. The food and service was awful, my date's food was not cooked properly, and had to be sent back, and my food was extremely salty, and cold. Don't think I'll be dining again. Very unsatisfactory food and service. How disappointing, as this was my date's birthday, and she expected a much better dining experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Everything was great! the food, the service the staff was very helpful. I really enjoyed myself."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Dined here for first time on 7/11/2014.All employees including first-floor receptionist, elevator attendant, restaurant receptionist, waiter, and assistant waiters were all exceptional. It was very refreshing to see such a compassion shown by all to ensure pleasant dining experience. I will definitely go back for another experience soon!"

  • "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"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Amazing!! We really enjoyed every moment from our champagne to our dessert! Two sommeliers!! Tres bien!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."

I wanted this day to be pretty special for my hubby ...im going to start with the elevator guy funny and pretty awesome.. Are waitress was the best ever .... Racquel ♥ love ya ..... I recommend this place ...5 stars the lobster Mac ..yummy oooh one more thing there restroom decor love it"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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."

Thank you so much for this wonderful weekend. Ill be seeing you soon too."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
