SO good. The drinks were inspired and fun; ambience was great. They were very safe - checked vaccine status and the staff was fully masked. Everything was pristine. The truffle popcorn is out of this world. Very, very fun intimate spot in NYC for a unique cocktail experience.

I normally love Bookmarks and the host there is so wonderful - he always makes sure everyone is happy. This last time I went, the waitress was very inattentive and forgot two of our orders even though we reminded her a few times. We ultimately had to go ask for some of the items at the bar. The bartender was terrific; the ambience is great and the cocktails were amazing. I think it was just an off night for that one server and will still return but it was a little disconcerting since normally the service there is excellent.

Great drinks and vibe. Waitress was very rude even though it wasn’t busy when we arrived.

Horrible service, had to beg the waitress to take our order, overpriced charcuterie board that i could have made better at home, and drinks were made to look fancy but tasted terrible

One of my all time favorite places to hangout. Indoor and outdoor rooftop. I love that it's not full of college students or intense party goers. More refined, relaxed place to talk - an adult crowd! Noise level can be quiet to moderate. Fantastic cocktails! The only negative is the limited menu.

Very small menu and no hot drinks (i.e. don't ask for an Irish Coffee or Spiced Wine) but the views are great and it's really quaint. Loved sitting outside in this cozy nook for a glass of wine!

I was looking for a quiet place to meet a friend for a drink after work. And this place was perfect!
We had excellent wine, and delicious nibbles.
The service was good and exactly the right amount of attention.

Loved the drinks and the appetizers, it's a nice quaint place for preferably small gathering, their view is lovely. Will definitely go back for the clock, which were strong and delicious.
