    I think the people who complain about the loudness of the restaurant don’t understand why it’s supposed to be loud. mexicans-like myself-like to party. that’s what makes this place so special, loud music, good food, and celebrations.

    We did not miss our reservations at Cantina Rooftop! We were at the Cantina Rooftop tonight, 6/8/22, at 5:30 pm, for dinner. Our reservations were under Konwin for two people. We arrived early and left at 6:40! We truly enjoyed our experience there and thought the food, service, ambience were outstanding! We wish OpenTable would not harass us about not attending a reservation that we absolutely checked in for and thoroughly enjoyed! Kenneth and Lynn Konwin

    Fui con mis hijos a celebrar el cumpleaños de mi hija mayor y la verdad que fue una decisión especialmente con el mesero de nombre Michael, primeramente ni agua nos pusieron, luego el estaba apurándonos para que ordenamos yo le pedí que por favor me trajera unos cubiertos plásticos y me dijo aquí no tenemos eso, pero luego le pregunté a otro mesero y me lo trajo al final nos dijo estaba botando, rushing us bad experience I’ll not recommend this place the need better service!!

    Honestly I expected a way better experience from Cantina Rooftop. You get on line to get into the elevator to take you to the rooftop , to come out to a super packed small waiting area. You tell the hostess you have reservations and she says you got to wait for your reserved table- ok fine . The biggest issue is it’s sooo loud you can’t hear when they call you and don’t have a system to notify you your table is available . While waiting for our table we went to get drinks at the bar , in which the bartender was super rude announcing he’s not taking any more drink orders after waiting 15 min for a drink. After realizing it’s been 30 min , we go to the hostess and she said she called my name . In which I said when because i didnt hear anything. We get our table and The vibe at the rooftop is what makes the restaurant great . It’s a party. But would i come back no - the food was basic and drink okay .

She also suggested the best surpirse pinata that made my wife and my kids very happy. Overall the ambienace is also very nice. Nice music. food is so so but not that bad.

    I was looking forward to meeting with a couple of people and unfortunately, it fell short. It was a Monday and apparently, they were understaffed, people were leaving because the food wasn't coming out from the kitchen, and when my party finally got the apps, it was wrong and we had to wait another 20 min for that to be replaced and another 45 min for tacos to be served. I think there was too much focus on the photoshoot that was happening one table away. Bummer because the food was actually pretty good but I probably won't go there again.

    Food was awful. Wine served in plastic cups. Noise was ear splitting thus making conversation impossible. Stay well away from this overpriced restaurant and spend your money elsewhere.
