    Bring friends and reserve their igloo hut during winter season. We had no knowledge of this and nothing was posted on their website It does get chilly so that would have been a great option for us. Instead we ate in the hotel restaurant which was also good.

    It was advertised that you had heaters and i made a request for heaters in my reservation. It ended up being very cold and the heaters that were supposed to be for a large space didn’t work at all and it is not even one of the coldest nights. We saw plastic igloos but didn’t realize we would need multiple ppl to get seated in one need to make that clear in reservations that those are options. Had more cabanas by the pool but no heaters and it really could have been a nice spot to chill but until get more space heaters that work even with your blankets which were thin we had to leave earlier than we wanted. Nice venue though and nice staff. They all do their best to make you comfortable but not on them.

    We had to flag down a waitress after 30 minutes of no one greeting us or taking our order. We put in our drink and app orders and only got our appetizers. After an hour and a half of being there our drinks still hadn’t come. We flagged down the waitress and asked for the check and to cancel our drinks. Got the check and the drinks were still on the bill. All this and the food was also horrible. I love the atmosphere and idea of this place but the service and food is subpar. There are plenty of other great rooftop places in the city.

    Great ambiance outdoors with overhead heaters (fall or winter), with an awesome view of BofA stadium. This is not a dinner restaurant. This is more of a business/conversation after-work cocktails venue. They serve bite-sized tapas & great drinks. We enjoyed ourselves & will return.

    The food was great, the ambiance was amazing but the service was ok. We had to find someone to take our order after we sat and actually watched the servers just walk around not tending ti anyone and we also had to get up and find someone to check out bc no one ever came when we were ready to leave.

    It was extremely windy and very cold. We were excited to get drinks and appetizers but they didn’t have any of the brisket sliders or beef tip lolipops. It was 6pm on a Saturday night. We thought all the menu items would be available. We got chicken satay and it was decent. Overall good experience.

There are a few tables here but majority of the seating is lounge like with throw pillows and blankets to really get cozy. The server I had so pleasant and helpful. Drinks and food were very good. Atmosphere was great. Went with friends and I can’t wait to go back with my husband. Highly recommend.

    Great visit and excellent service. Views not as spectacular as other uptown venues but setting is both elegant and modern looking. Only thing is they have quite a big problem with bees around the bar. Not sure exactly why but likely sugary and herby stuff around the bar is attracting them. Bees don't just go to a 5th story building to hang out so they need to address that soon (closed containers, covering stuff, etc). Not a big issue and still gets 5 stars from me but putting here so management is aware that it is an issue for customers.
