We were fortunate to have just paid the bill and we’re leaving DOWN the Stairs when the CITY power went out!

Food was good, but bottomless mimosas came out fast. The sun is no joke, but they do provide hats for shade.

Great vibe and atmosphere! Food was good but small portions for the money. Taco Tuesday is limited and only offered in the bar. Tip is automatically added as well. Overall positive experience, but lacking in value.

From we walked in we did not have the best experience and that was because of the woman who seated us. She had the worse attitude. The entree was mediocre but the donuts were yummy. I would never go back!

this was a fun outdoor find. Though it's not much of a view, the music is fun, the ambiance is a party, and the food was fantastic. Grab a pitcher of top shelf margaritas will set you back $80 but hey, a fun outdoor summer funday makes it worth the bucks.

The food and service was very good. The ambiance was nice but it was a sweltering 90 degrees out and they had the hot sun beating on us. It was very tough to enjoy our time roasting.

Very hot and restaurant would not move the retractable roof top two inches or so for sun cover after just moving it. They need fans or misters or something if they are going to market as an all weather roof top. The food was good but my party was far too uncomfortable to eat.

Food was good but it was hard to enjoy it with the heat on our heads. It was 90 degrees outside and when we got there they asked if we wanted to seat on the shade or under the sun. We obviously said in the shade (bc who wants to eat and tan at the same time unless you are at the pool?) and 5 minutes later they retracted the roof and the entire restaurant was under the sun. We asked if they could put the roof back on a bit to cover our table, (which was at one of the ends anyway) they said no, so I asked if we could move to this tiny area that still had shade, they said no again, but that we could move inside to this weird area with high top stools with no back, so we decided to stay where we were. A while later a friend asked again if they could move the roof a little bit and they conceded but really only moved it a foot! Anyway everybody CHEERED! They still didn’t get the hint though and kept us all stewing. Seriously, did they want to torture us? We were going out to celebrate my friends new baby, she is 36 weeks pregnant, luckily they had a big fan right next to our table so I could trade sits with her so she could feel a bit more comfortable. That fan by the way was the only way of cooling they had outside. Needless to say we are not coming back. I can only assume they were trying to get us to appreciate the view, which is nice, but nobody can appreciate anything when feeling that uncomfortable. We had planned to go out after shopping or something but were so tired from the sun on our heads that we decided to call it a day. I also want to add that I never write reviews but am writing this in the hopes that this was a fluke and they will fix the problem for the next poor people who go to this place in the summer.

The music was great, they had a local singer and violenist who were awesome. The views were amazing. The service though, it left a lot to be desired. Was very inattentive and seemed to be poorly trained, spent a lot of time on the computer trying to ring things up.

Before sitting down I’d definitely recommend speaking to the hostess about food/drink specials anddddd the 20% tip automatically added to your bill 😣 Food and drinks quickly add up if your not vigilant of the specifics of seating and “happy hour”

We were staying at a nearby hotel and was looking for a place to eat for dinner. I was walking by the restaurant and noticed that it was open for dinner. I went to the room and went to their website and reserved us a table. When we got there we found that this place is very lively with a DJ and a lot of people having a good time. The food, drinks and entertainment was super! Would recommend it to everyone!

The waiter was not very nice. Not one smile.
And then "Gratuity included" when we were only two. Of course, it was 20%. This should not be legal.

Birthday dinner for my son, whom had traveled from Europe to be enjoying this evening.

Then the staff was sloppy, slow and ignorant.
No Espresso coffe available, food was poor and over spiced with chili, they closed the Restaurante 40 min after we had arrived; 18.55!! We did not get any dessert, due to closed kitchen. Staff was ride to us about this!!

We left the restaurante for Starbucks, after finishing only 2 out of 5 entrees?

I surprised my bridesmaids with a proposal (officially asking them to be in the wedding) at Cantina Rooftop. The staff was super accommodating, from letting me access my table before the time of my reservation to helping me set-up. It was a great success. The food was amazing too!

Very fun brunch! A little disappointing that they wouldn't allow any side substitutions even if you have a food allergy. Also my food came out 20 minutes before my friends' food so it was a little awkward timing. Overall good experience though otherwise!
