Disinterested wait staff makes this bar a “never return” for me. Wine was splashed as the glasses were placed on our table, and no apology or even acknowledgment was offered by our server. We had to walk to the bar on our own to get napkins to clean off the table and the bases of our glasses. Same disinterest shown throughout our stay, so we left without ordering a second round. Views were not as good as any number of other bars nearby, so next time we’ll choose elsewhere to spend our money and our evening.
Our server was wonderful!! But someone kept raising the music volume to the point we could not hear one another speak
La señora que nos servía estaba como en otro mundo muy mal servicio. Muy lindo el lugar.
Food and drinks were good. Our server was very quick and meh. Ambiance was pretty for sure!
It was ok. The dj was all over the place the music was just not mixed good, the drinks were overpriced, but the service was nice.
Weak cocktails and they overbook reservations so you don’t actually have a table when you arrive
la atencion estuvo bien lo que no me gusto fue la comida estaba fria y los tragos no me parecieron espectacular
Setting and music was nice but service was relatively poor. We waited over 15 minutes at our table and had to approach a waiter to eventually place an order. Was expecting better service given the prices.
When we made the reservation it was for dinner…but because there was a private party taking place they sat us near the bar and we got a menu that was a bar menu…I ended up with a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner and my wife got Nachos…the waitress was distracted and slow.
Pizza was soggy ..
All in all the worst place ever recommended by Open Table . The worst place I had ever been for dinner.
Terrible service - server was very patronizing and impatient with us, took our drink orders but walked away without asking about food order; took a long time to get their attention for anything (it was not that busy); no one said anything when we walked out even though server was looking in our direction and host was standing right by the door
Is unacceptable that I made a reservation and after we get there no table, and wait 30 for a table as the welcome ladies said, nothing happened. Really bad service
It was my birthday, me and my friend planned to go there last minute on a weekend. And they did not disappoint!! Everyone was helpful and showing good vibes.
The food was amazing too
cute and convenient spot
Drinks were great! Atmosphere was trendy. Food was bland and overpriced. Service was subpar we told our server that we had a tight timeframe as we were seeing a show. We put our food order w/drinks but took 30min for food to come out (chicken skewers and flatbread).... We had to shove food so fast and paid as soon as our food arrived. No apology for the slow service, just a "thanks for coming". We'll hit up again for cocktails pre-dinner or pre-party.
The places is wonderful I love it !
The waitress won’t it that friendly. And no even attempt with us we have to call her when we need more service ..
not even a bad person but not friendly at all .
Overall the drinks was so good and the view and the place vibe Amazing .. definitely going back
Great rooftop to celebrate my birthday. The group arrived in parts and the second set of people to arrive had a little bit of a hard time downstairs. Had to wait a while for a table but glad to get one in the back section which had much more space. Drinks and ambiance were nice!
Only had drinks - which were overpriced and not good. The service was mediocre at best.
Gorgeous location with epic vibes and views!
They did not inform us that they had a $500 minimum charge at the time of reservation. We showed up for our reservation and at first was told we just needed to spend 1 bottle of wine for $90 and another hostess told us it was a minimum of $500. This is the first time this happened and I wish we were told beforehand so we didn’t waste our time especially since we were out for the first time in NYC with our friends from out of town.
Loved the atmosphere….. great place in the center of the city. Drinks and food were great….
Nos levantamos y nos fuimos. No era lo que esperábamos
Half of the menu wasn’t available. The staff was rude—overpriced drinks. For a rooftop bar, the “view” was average.
As a traveler from Thailand and first time visit to New York, it’s a little disappointing. Our booking did not mention an indoor more outdoor seating but we were escort directly to the indoor seating without any queries.
Food was not fulfilling and taste blend, if you are just here to mingle and be seen, maybe it’s a place with outdoor seating but definitely not for me because we were very hungry and expected more.
We made a res for 8, got an email saying now 830- arrived at 825 and were Dudley turned away saying they did not have the space for us. As we walked multiple blocks and left another establishment that was excited to serve us, a phone call at least 30 minutes before would have made a big difference. The hostess was overwhelmed, but dismissive which is not a good look either- Very disappointed.
Fabulous ambiance both inside and outside! Get the grilled cheese and their signature Elsie cocktail.
Wonderful experience! The drinks were good and the truffle grilled cheese was amazing!
Tastefully appointed rooftop bar. Wonderful ambience, good cocktails and quick bites! Would highly recommend this place for group of people or couples!
Everything is top BUT the drinks... they are poorly prepared with a lot of sugar and little to zero alcohol in them. I was disappointed with that but the service and energy are great.
Overall great experience. Feels chic and exclusive. Drinks, tapas, and service were all good.
Loved Elsie! They really take care of regulars and newcomers alike. The manager, Jackie, came to our table a couple of times throughout the night to check on us and was just really awesome and attentive, as was our waitress.
Drinks with the girls on such a loving evening in NYC. Fun atmosphere and yummy cocktails with good noms. We're coming back!
They didn’t have fries even though it’s on their menu. We ordered a Bianca pizza which was pretty bleh. Their food options need some revamping.
Great spot, beautiful views, delish cocktails!
I made a reservation choosing a nice table and you gave me the ugliest one, my mom is visiting from Argentina and I was ashamed of took her to this place.
I made a reservation at 7:30PM for my thirtieth birthday. They kicked me out at 9PM for a private event that the did not tell me about earlier. The spoons were dirty and they were rude to my friends me I.
Snacks apps and drinks ~ great space
Lindo sitio aunque la vista no es tan espectacular
I had an awful experience here. I booked a reservation to take my friend and the rest of our group here for her birthday and when we arrived at our scheduled reservation time, 10pm, we were told the restaurant had closed at 9:30 and it appears our reservation was changed only two hours before while we were in a show.
Luckily the security guy was very nice and gave us a recommendation for another place in the area to go but I was very disappointed in our experience and don't plan to return.
Excellent staff and manager! Very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!
The food was good the service was good but we were disappointed with the ambience for being a rooftop bar
