On the app it sat kitchen closes at 12, when we got there at 11:30, for our 11:45 reservation:kitchen had already been closed at 10 PM.
Service was very poor. There is no hostess or staff to greet and help manage reservations, so people walk-in and sit without a reservation. They had no food either from the menu avaliable Saturday afternoon.
We never got to eat at this restaurant. There was a private party that took over the space, the only place available to my dinner partner who was a client was a spot in the back, which was dark and awful. It was so noisy and ruckus we had to leave. The name sake of this awful cube on top of a building in Times Square would not like her name being used for possibly one of the worse restaurants I have been in in a long time.
As a VIP, I was shocked how I was treated. I made a reservation for specifically to eat outdoors. The reservation was accepted. My daughter was home from college and it was a perfect spring day in New York City. When we arrived, we checked in downstairs with our reservation. I5 was confirmed that it was outdoor seating. When we reached the rooftop, the manager indicated that the restaurant was closed for private parties, and if we wanted to stay it would be standing room only. After much discussion, he put out in a corner in a back room, which was so inappropriate. I still tipped the waitress the appropriate amount as it was not her fault, but this was a horrible experience. If I could have, I would walked out, but open table’s policy of not being able to cancel a reward reservation, is what prevented me from doing so. Open Table, please cheange that policy. It took me so long to earn this reward, it should be a positive one.
Very pretty setting / venue. Staff very friendly & helpful. Drinks very pricey but nice to spend time sitting & sipping & looking out at the skyscrapers.
When we arrived that welcomed us sat us down and gave us a menu that held both food and drinks. We chose our food and drinks and then the server told us that there was NO FOOD TONIGHT because the chef was not there! They could have told us that when we arrived! Then we got one cocktail and one coca cola before finding another restaurant. Those 2 drinks cost $25!!! Come on!!
Good for a group of peoples to party
Thank you for your review!
They were decent but could have done better with customer service
Thank you for your feedback, we will do our best to improve our services!
I loved it! And highly recommend it
Thank you for your positive review!
Great after work spot. Drinks were amazing. Only one bartender and it was pretty busy but overall good, laid back, chill vibe. Will be going back!
It is a beautiful, fun rooftop bar in the neighborhood. A nice place to go with the flow.
I had a reservation and I wanted to enjoy drink and smalls bites of food. I was seated, ordered drinks and then after asking to put in my food order i was then told the kitchen was closed due to a party. Unacceptable. I should have been made aware that there would be no food before being seated and ordering drinks. I didn't like how my reservation was handled. The waitress/hostess I will say was very nice, but then we were made aware that she quit because of poor treatment -- definitely left a bad taste in my mouth. This is my second time being here and not having a good experience. Will not be back.
The seating in the bar area was pretty clustered, tight, and hard to get around. Monday night Jazz singer was so good, will come back just for her.
Thank you for your feedback. We take every review in consideration in order to improve on our services!
NICE, FRIENDLY and a great happening bar/lounge place.....chill for hanging out....surprisingly above average food, but the lighting is too dark for eating.
We ended up leaving. Sat for 20 mins without ever being approached by a server, and there were only two other tables seated so there was no excuse. A busser brought us waters but that was it, we weren’t even given menus. The only person in the restaurant who greeted us was the bartender. So if you plan to go, I would recommend sitting at the bar for service. Aesthetic was pleasing, but it wasnt worth it for us. I can’t imagine what it would have been like if it were busy, but for 7pm reservation on a Saturday night, to only have 3 parties in the restaurant says enough about the place.
The place is beautiful, views outstanding. However service is snotty and a joke. The minute we walked in we were forced to turn our coats into coat check because we were told it was manditaory since yesterday. Seriously rediculous. Then when we went upstairs, plenty of people had there coats. We felt this was just another ploy to nickel and dime the customer. Also the prices are outrageous considering the service is terrble. had to chase ther server for plates and utensils and water. Would I go again? Maybe if they improve the service and hire more help. Food was pretty good. Prices were rediculously inflated.
Service was fair in this busy night, food mediocre. Come essentially for the view.
Excellent service, food, drinks and views!!! Definitely will be regulars.
Great service. Food does not match the vibe. Expensive for the quality received.
The drinks are a bit overpriced at $18. And one of our drinks was served with a long piece of hair in it. We told our server and she replaced the drink. But no manager came to apologize to us nor did they comp us anything. 2 drinks and 1 appetizer cost us $70. We stayed less than an hour.
Very nice place
The cocktails list is inventive and they taste great
The food menu is somehow limited but all we had tasted very good
The staff was very friendly
The clientele was very varied
