Fun, fun, fun!! And a limited but tasy menue. If you are going out to have deep conversations, this is not the place since it is way to loud for that. But for a fun night with friends feeling safe (great Covid solutions in place) - this is the place.

The entree was overpriced & it didn’t include the cost of the side. For a two person table they automatically included $23 gratuity which I’ve never seen before. The food wasn’t worth the price. The music was super loud, I could barely hear the person I was with. The drink were also overpriced and very watered down.

Food was good. Service forgot our drinks. Guacamole was the best. Tacos, good. Overall, good.

I was expecting more from this restaurant. We arrived and were sat down at a table that wasn’t sturdy so we asked to be moved to another table and if the umbrellas they had for shade would be opened and we were told no, while the other side of the rooftop was sitting with umbrellas opened for shade. That was strike 1. Strike 2 was when we ordered our food and asked what the happy hour menu was and/or if they had any deals we were told “there is no happy hour” when on Yelp, Open Table and Google it stated Happy Hour was from 4-7 and it was 4:45. Waitress said “not today” I asked “so when is it?” She replied “on Tuesday for Taco Tuesday”. Either way, it wasn’t listed anywhere on any sites/apps. Menu stated there were flavored margaritas, waitress checked with the bar and they said no flavored margaritas today, another false advertisement. I asked for a refill on my margarita right when the food arrived, I didn’t receive it until the bill came by then it served no purpose. Tacos weren’t great, but the nachos were absolutely delicious!!
I wouldn’t go back. Just wasn’t worth it. If you’re looking for one drink and then to head home sure go ahead, if not don’t bother.

I am definitely coming back. They had a DJ playing awesome music. Beautiful and vibrant umbrella decorations. The Baja tacos were phenomenal. $27 bottomless sangria and mimosas! I don't think any other place in the city has as great of service at the moment. Thank you for making my birthday special!

Not so good experience, the tables and chairs move a lot because of the floor, the waiters are very pushy and don’t let you eat, the push there menu even if you not done with your food. The food was good. Also the music was too loud.

Even though the atmosphere and some staffs are nice, the manager was very rude and not friendly.
Even with the reservation, there was no table available and our group had to wait 15 extra minutes.
I asked the manager what is going on but he did not explain and forced us to just wait.
The manager does not listen to the voice of customers.
The music was way too loud to make any conversation.

The food was awesome. Red/White sangria were good. It was hot as balls on the roof for brunch, so there’s that. Haha. Only thing I found annoying were the constant reminders about 90min time limit. Perhaps there are people who don’t respect that, but it really made me feel like I was “on the clock”. I might just dial that back a bit.

This is all post Covid so they were following various different procedures like temp check, they were providing masks, sanitizer. It’s one party per elevator trip. The seating area is setup to social distance.

The food was amazing, the guacamole and chips were great so were the nachos, tacos and the margaritas we got.

The restaurant did a great job with social distancing. Every staff member was wearing a mask and the service was great. I give them so much credit because it was about 95 degrees and they didn’t skip a beat!

Everything was wonderful I had a great time . Only problem was that my server brought out our apps at the same time as my entire. So we had the table full with all the food at once. I do understand that he was busy and we excused him.

They misplaced our order so we waited a while for our entrees. The waiter basically also forgot about us for a while also had to wave him down for more drinks. Not a great first impression.

We went there for brunch and food was the worst I ever had. We asked for additional egg and server said we can’t have ad on or make any changes to our dish. Rooftop and ambience was nice. It’s just the food and service sucked.

We had a great time. The drinks are a little expensive, but the food is great. The rooftop can be very hot during the day. There is not a lot of shade to cover so if it's a hot or humid day, you're pretty much just baking in the sun. The food and the service was great though. I would definitely go back. Do make sure you make a reservation though!

We had to use the cheapest plastic utensils to eat. Imagine having a steak with plastic and the lowest grade claiming covid protection which is not true since we have been dining in city this past week and never were given plastic utensils. Take your own
