Amazing, I was late to my reservation and they still accommodated me. I ordered appetizers thinking I’d be waiting long for my entree and it ended coming expeditiously. FOOD WAS AMAZING. Loved everything about this place.

To be really honest, I have never left a bad review anywhere but this one needs one. No where on the reservation did it say that your entire party has to be there to be seated. One of our friends was stuck in traffic & got there after the reservation time.... & they refused to seat us before she arrived. And THEN when she did, they refused to seat us where we had reservations. The staff was not understanding & they sat us indoors during a pandemic, when we asked to sit in open air seating so everyone would be comfortable. & everything was so expensive & the manager never came to explain their case.

I will not recommend this place to anyone.

Great experience. Good ambience, music was very loud. I didn’t mind it but if you are looking for intimidate quiet dining this is not the place. Also the drinks are expensive. Food was delicious and music was fun

Our waiter wasn’t nice at all, he rushed us the whole time, I didn’t feel like a guest I felt he was annoyed 😒 the whole time. They ran out of food the drinks were ok but for what they charge for food I would think you wouldn’t run out of chicken, and it was a heated roof top and I almost broke my neck walking down 6 flights of stairs in heels drunk.

The venue is nice. The vibe was good but the food however was not great. Of our party of 6 only 2 really enjoyed their food.
I(and another person) had the tres leche french toast- there was nothing "tres leche" or "french toast" about the dish.
There was also confusion as to what our options were to order a non alcoholic drink?

Overall we had a really great time and the food was great BUT the bottomless brunch is misleading. You can do the bottomless option inside the restaurant, but not in the outdoor area.

The service was terrible! They rushed me and my friend (it was her birthday and the restaurant wasn't even crowded.) They took plates that we didn't say we were done with and the food wasnt good. I ordered carnitas tacos and it was mostly fat and bone. Only saving grace were the drinks. Those were delicious. Overall, our experience was terrible and I would not recommend.

This place was terrible. It should come with a disclaimer that if you are over 20 you should not go. It was so loud we couldn’t hear each other speak. The food was adequate but the service poor and rushed to get you out ASAP and definitely within 90 minutes. I hated the whole experience and do not recommend.

The vibe is amazing it’s an amazing ambiance however the food could use a little more seasoning the steak tacos were bland , no flavor really unless you add sauces . The chips and guacamole were good . Nonetheless I enjoyed my time and would really recommend this place maybe don’t go for tacos but there are other options on the menu!!!! Great service by everyone the manager/owner was amazing he gave us free shots due to the rain and it wasn’t even a chaotic situation but he just felt for us as customers and that made me feel extremely satisfied as a customer .

The people at the reception are not friendly at all. My reservation was for 5 people, and they didn’t want to give us the table until the fifth person showed up... they were willing to let go a big group of people, instead of being flexible and giving us the table while the last person showed up (he arrived like 20minutes later)... also the music was SO loud that we had to scream to be able to hear the others.
The food was nice though..

They won't seat you if your entire party isn't present, so they gave away my outdoor reservation and we had to be seated indoors because I arrived late even though a member of my party had arrived on time. Wouldn't have been a major issue if not for the fact that the music was top-volume loud and they said they couldn't turn it down since it was connected to the rooftop. Ordered guac/chips, they were delicious, drinks were delicious - we ordered quesadillas and one order of tacos and it inexplicably took an extended period of time to come out. Both were okay but just didn't seem fresh. Between them giving away my reservation although they could've just seated the first person to arrive immediately, the music blasting so loud indoors we couldn't hear each other speak without screaming, and the inconsistent service, I was overall disappointed. Unfortunately won't be going back.

Good food and nice service and great ambience- on a nice evening, you get a good view of midtown Manhattan. They also took precautions to separate the tables with plastic screens for COVID safety. The place is kind of loud though- good DJ playing music but we had to shout at eat other to hear each other at our table. It's a little pricy but not unreasonable. I like going there once in a while.

I was so excited coming here but it was absolutely horrible. The food was so bland, literally had no taste. The chicken quesadilla and chicken tacos weren’t even seasoned. I couldn’t even finish the food because of how bland it was. The prices are very high and doesn’t make sense because the portions are so little. The dessert was a rip off as well. $35 for chunks of small brownies and ice cream is a waste of money. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
