The Cantina Rooftop is a place I bring people visiting me in the City for that Wow factor and it works everytime. The access by elevator is mysterious. The view is stunning. The food is authentic Mexican and has become my favorite. The service is great. The music is pumping!! I love this place!!
They were having a private party so they shifted the whole rest. Downstairs,so it was short on staff and the worst thing is while we are eating, they are removing tables as it becomes a nightclub later on.
The restaurant was relatively empty, the waiter took forever to attend us and the food took over an hour to come out. The price of the drinks and food was not worth the time
While the staff is super friendly and very professional, food was ok. The room was very loud cause of a party downstairs so our table chairs and walls were shaking. Not sure if it is because we talked with an accent but they included a 18% gratuity right away (we were only 4) and the gratuity was based on the total bill not based on the tax. So that left us with a bad taste in our mouth.
Real Mexican food not Tex-Mex kinda pricey but it is in New York so expect nothing less but food is good
Booked cantina rooftop expecting a rooftop! We were put on 3rd floor because there was event on the roof. We were put in a makeshift dining room with kitchen behind a curtain. I wouldn’t have gone here if I’d been told the roof was closed.
Fantastic atmosphere, great guacamole.
Romantic dinner for two with a view of the Manhattan skyline in the background.
Noise level was painful. The music was so loud, we could only speak to the person sitting right next to us; no group conversation was possible. A group of 4 or 5 came as we were leaving and they decided to leave, too, because of the sound level.
So with that, and the food being only mediocre, I would never go here again.
Not the view i expected but nice ambient
Weird vibe.. not what photos show. Can’t order food on the rooftop inside is weird. Drinks were not good
Great venue and foood but way too loud for a Sunday afternoon
Not great service. The waiter placed my fork on my plate and tried to take it away without even asking if I was done! I still had 2 out of 4 enchiladas left! When I told him to stop and to please hand me a clean fork, he didn’t even apologize! So rude!!
It was ok not a big menu selection
drinks are over priced
beautiful view minus the construction
I made a reservation for Cantina Rooftop assuming that we could get seated outdoors on the rooftop but instead was told when we got there that the rooftop was reserved for a private party and a curtain covered the entire thing. The waiter also brought us menus that were different from the menus on the website for the rooftop. However, he and the chef were accommodating to prepare meals on the rooftop menu. The ambiance is nice and they okay good music but it is loud and hard to talk to people/be heard. The guacamole was super good and the enchiladas were different but not bad. The service was kind of slow but the servers were polite and sweet.

Reserved a table at the rooftop in advance and asked for view. We came and were seated in the floor below as the rooftop was closed for a private party. That floor had no windows. Atmosphere was friendly. A bit too noisy but the music was good. The food was so so. Limited menu. The qusadia was flat and dry , hamburger tasted good but the fries were too salty. Fish was way too salty. Service was friendly. Overall disappointing.
Made reservations with understanding we'd be on the roof. When we arrived there was a large event with a super loud DJ. Then we were taken downstairs to an indoor dining room. The food and service were excellent but the glassware was all plastic, making it seem a bit cheap, despite paying $25-35 per plate. Definitely call first to make sure you can get a rooftop table. Very disappointing. However, the free tequila shots at the end were a nice touch.
I had an amazing experience! The waitress Catalina was one of the best servers I've ever had. The outside rooftop view is beautiful and the retractable roof is AMAZING! We were outside and it started pouring so they closed the roof and we sat outside with the same beautiful view while it rained. Felt like something out of a movie. Will definitely be back time and time again
I enjoyed my stay and I had great service
took my wife here she had an amazing time the place is beautiful great music great food
It was great but I expected better service than what we received also I noted that there was a birthday but no one came with the birthday celebrations
I've eaten some amazing food in various spots throughout the city and this did not disappoint!! The food was utterly amazing and the atmosphere was beautiful! The DJ on the rooftop was pretty awesome also! Such a fun atmosphere for a variety of events! We will definitely be back on our next visit!!!
We absolutely loved Cantina Rooftop. The food was great. The service from Michael was amazing. He was super attentive and caring. The atmosphere was loud but fun. The rooftop is an amazing view.
Loved this place for the views and the yummy food and margaritas! Perfect anniversary dinner spot.
I enjoyed my self my the young women at were the hostess were beyond rude.
The music was extremely loud which made conversations impossible. We go out to restaurants to catch up with friends and family and talk. But this restaurant made it impossible. Food was okay but I am a vegetarian which led to very few (3 to be precise) options. So, not recommended for vegetarians or vegans.
Overall a good experience, good music and good food. Prices were a little high but had a great time here. Our server was very kind will come back
Terrible service and automatic 20% gratuity add to bill and not told about it. It’s too bad the service was terrible because it’s a great location and great vibe.
Our waiter was very very slow. Asked him for hot sauce and waited for so long we had to ask a different waiter. It was also VERY loud. There was hardly anyone there but the dj was blasting music way too loud for 6pm on a Friday.
Aside from the DJ being a bit too loud, I had a blast. The food was really fresh and really good.
My friends and I were looking for a fun rooftop brunch spot and definitely found it at Cantina. The ambiance was great - mixed age crowd, friendly servers, Latin music playing the entire time - overall awesome vibes. Our group shared the french toast and chipotle guacamole- both were delicious. My main dish of Huevos Rancheros was good, but wish the tortilla was crispier (became soggy with the tomato sauce). Overall I give this place an 8/10.
Food, atmosphere was great for my husband's birthday brunch, the waitress couldn't understand us most of the time though, making ordering difficult. Birthday candles and hat were hilarious!
The tacos, the drinks everything was amanzing. Love this place will definitely come back.
Excellent service. Great view. Greater vibes from staff and other guests. The DJ could lower the sound a bit. There were plenty of times I had to yell to my friends across the table and the waiter because it was so loud.
Drinks were awesome. View was great. Music was too loud too early. Food was only ok. Great crowd. Good service.
Great food, good service and nice views of midtown buildings.
The music was extra loud though for 6:30pm on Thursday night. Fun DJ and dance floor though.
Hostess was horrible but overall the place was good!
Music way too loud. No one can hear each other talk. Music was good DJ was good and entertaining,fun but overall music was so loud that it was not something I would do again.
This is my second visit this summer and look forward to going back. The food was amazing and the service great! We stuck around a bit after dinner to enjoy the music. A very fun night!
A very genuine Mexican place in Manhattan. Great atmosphere and food. You must try the frozen margarita.
