My overall experience as a first time customer.... I didn’t like it at all first when my date and I arrived early we had to wait to have a table. And some of the people that was there was crazy wild the DJ was trying to get girls that was dancing and it didn’t look professional at all. And people are eating and girls are just dancing like it’s a night club. And the food was over priced for 3 little enchilada with 2 little shrimps and one little spoon of rice and beans and my partner had the same thing and without ordering enough drinks cost over $130. I just find it was weird. And for a date setting thinking a nice rooftop spot would be nice but it just turned out to be awful. I could not stand the fact that a group of screaming girls was around. Omg awful.

A stunning vista and great food. Went on a Friday night which was a more party fare than I expected (or, rather, would have realized if I thought about it more).

Thus it was difficult to talk and listen in the eating area. Again, that's on me.

Yes however service was awful, they added $10 gratuity to the bill which we were not happy about. Took 20 minutes to order, then when we were finished we sat with empty plates till we left. Asked for the bill while the food was still on our table as we couldn’t wait any longer. We were shocked at $10 being added to the bill when we wouldn’t have even given it $5

This option was picked out by my 27 year daughter in celebration of her grandmother birthday .... it was my moms 68th birthday & even though it was loud ... and not age appropriate for her and my dad since he is blind and 75 years old ... they had an amazing time ... the staff went out of their way to accommodate my dad who is blind ... the staff kept checking in on us.. the DJ EVEN GAVE HER A SHOUT OUT ... I just wanted for one day for them to enjoy the weather and ambiance....changing their NORM .... the waiter was super accommodating.... we ordered the 90 minute unlimited alcohol for 25 per person & they kept those glasses full at all times... the menu was limited but we made the best if it ...it was a truly a BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION FULL OF DANCING LAUGHTER & just pure enjoying a roof top IN NYC ON THE LAST DAY IF SUMMER .... I would definitely go back without them lol .... great choice to benefit all ages .... even down to the conga line & choice of variation of music genre .....

Service was rude. They said that me and my friend "did not look old enough to drink" and made a huge fuss with the manager about it, despite us having real IDs that scanned. Extremely rude.

We were not informed upon making reservation at 9pm that They closed the kitchen at 9pm. They should really close their tables at 8pm if that’s the case. We were rushed into ordering and on top of it they forgot to put an order in.

They’re doing construction so it certainly effects the rooftop ambience, no one wants to see a huge building that’s in the process of being built when you’re trying to enjoy skyline views but the $25 bottomless drinks certainly made up for it. The food was okay and the portions were small. The $25 bottomless drinks would probably be the only reason I come back.

Our waiter was a young man named Michael. He made us feel right at home. The food was delicious. The music was just perfect, we were able to hear each other and the music equally. The dance floor was alive but not too crowded to feel congested. I loved this place. Oh and the view was amazing.

The vibe was good... we had a reservation for 3pm on a Sunday & the guy at the door at the street level maybe thought he was being funny because he told is the brunch menu was over & they were serving dinner. So we all bought an individual drink at the bar ($14 cocktails) while we waited for our table to be ready only to find out the $29 unlimited cocktails for 90 mins was still being served. Obviously we were annoyed at having spent $14 on that first cocktail.
One friend also had a hair in her food & another had the doughnut balls which was still raw in middle. Not bad, but not a great experience. Wouldn’t revisit.

The DJ was insanely loud. Not the music he was playing, it was the yelling into the microphone every 45 seconds or so. It gave everyone a headache. The music he played was okay though.

Down to earth,
Chill and fun atmosphere!
Food and drinks are delish!
Frozen margarita and guac to start,
We picked three sides, they made it a good deal one side for $7 or three sides for $15.
Avocado toast and the avocado and burrara cheese salad were great! They give you good portions.
Also there is all you can drink mimosa, white or red sangria during 90 minutes for $25
Crowd is mixed younger and middle age people. Excellent for bigger groups.

Food is good. Have the tacos. Service is good too however they lost our credit card for a minute. Noise level super loud it’s hard to talk to the person across the table. They have more sunny spots than shaded areas to eat so they give you cool hats to wear which is useful. The restaurant is a sun worshipers heaven. Non sun lovers stay away. It’s was just a okay experience however I’ll never go back.

We had the chicken nachos and I wish the chips were larger because it became very messy. Also the drinks were very weak, like watered down. I even asked for my Margarita to get more alcohol and I said I would pay. The waiter said ok and when he returned with our drinks he stated he it’s strong now, but when I drank from it and it was the same very very weak. We did like the atmosphere.
