I'm torn. This place has a lot going for it, however, service was very slow. We waited way too long to be waited on, for drinks to arrive and they weren't even busy. Not sure how they assign tables, by area or evenly dispersed by volume? The views are great, if they pick up the service, there's no reason that place shouldn't be packed, particularly on a weekend afternoon as nice as this past Saturday.

I had a confirmed lunch reservation on 3/29 for 6 people to celebrate an anniversary. When we entered the elevator, it stopped us on the 2nd floor instead of the rooftop. I called but no one answered. I called again 30 minutes later and no one answered. I called that evening but no one answered. Why have a reservation when the restaurant wasn’t opened? Very disappointed and will not try again. Very unreliable.

There were not a lot of people yet service was mediocre. We waited way too long for cocktail refills, two people were served burnt french fries and there were 4 pieces of crispy chicken in one of the crispy chicken salads and 9 in another...yes we counted and evened it out.
Location is fabulous and menus (cocktail and food) offer great choices. I think people working there need to up their game.

Terrible service with a staff that didn’t care. Hair in a burger which had already been sent back for being over cooked.. ordered a side of eggs.. came with cheese all over the top.. they were out of almost everything we wanted to order. Should’ve known then not to stay. Don’t recommend for brunch

The location and ambiance is amazing. You get a great view of downtown Livermore from the 3rd floor but the TERRIBLE service makes the experience not worth it. Took almost an hour to get drinks and food was cold when we finally did get it.

Although reserved table a 4 days earlier, they couldn't get me the table at promised time but that's okay. The lady server made sure I get the best table once cleared. Food was good, ambiance was great, music was ok.

Love the view and the rooftop ambiance, that’s about it. Wish they had heat in the outdoor lounge seating area, the heating was only in the middle and the heaters were bolted to the ground (or so we were told). There were blankets which was nice but some fire tables and/or heat lamps are much needed. The service is super slow and the food and drinks isn’t impressive but so knew this and was okay since I like the rooftop lounge area, however, the lack of heat made it a cold painfully slow experience. I had emailed the contact asking about heat before my event (with reservations for 10) and nobody responded. Hopefully one of these days they’ll get these things ironed out.

Cute concept. The owner/chef also owns The Last Word.
Food was OK. I had a soup, Coke Verde that was made with chicken. We had the queso appetizer; it tasted like cheez whiz or velveeta. My husband liked his burger but thought it needed more seasoning. We sat inside because it was raining but the outdoor seating looks like fun. We ate here before going to the Bankhead Theater, located almost next to each other.
Would we return? I don’t think so, too many other restaurants we would like to try that are near by.

Menu is very small and unimaginative. I ordered a specialty cocktail, but was just a regular mixed drink. Not tasty at all. The restaurant was not very busy, but it still took about 15 minutes to get a drink. The outdoor dining space is cool, though it was too cold to sit there this time. Waitress was very nice, but it’s like the restaurant just isn’t trying very hard.

Food and service were awesome. My only complaint is that it was very dark outside. They had a small lantern on the table, but it was still hard to read the menu

They had they best music. The artist was on the top 48 on American Idol and is headed for The Voice in 2019. Awesome!
