The staff was so warm and inviting even with the pending restaurant closures. The cocktails were excellent and it was overall a good vibe.
Great outdoor space for Iconic city views. Delicious drinks!
Amazing night out with friends for my birthday!
Please put heaters for the outdoor dining because it was cold at night!!
We want to eat there through the pandemic and it will be too cold
Otherwise drinks food and service was great
Awesome service, beautiful rooftop with amazing views! Overall had an excellent time with incredible drinks!
Service was excellent. Shame for using frozen food. Poor quality. Cheap.
I live down the street and I always love coming to the Empire Rooftop after work with friends. My sister and I decided to stop in the other night and the service was wonderful as always.
Rooftop experience tonight was perfect. Might have been 50 degrees but the rooftop bubble kept it warm and the service staff was exceptional. Party of 5 and ordered 7 small plates to share and couldn’t finish it all - so yummy. It was really well done!! Kudos
We loved it
perfect night out! it almost made you forget about the pandemic for a few hours bc you were in the empire hotel’s signature chic rooftop ambience. excellent food, drinks and waitstaff. can’t wait to return!
Just beautiful. Wish the menu had more of a variety for vegetarians. Great ambiance inside and out. Service was on point with pleasant staff. Will be back.
Beautiful night and a great space. The service was very good and the food was great.
Great value for money. The drinks and food prices were really reasonable. Beautiful ambiance but surprisingly not very much energetic environment more quiet than your usual rooftop. The views are gorgeous and overall a good visit.
A good spot for grabbing a drink and a small social gathering .
We did not realize it was inside when there were pictures advertising it being outside.
One of the best places I been visiting in NYC , totally recommended, service food and Drinks are excellent!!
Really great cocktails, super nice service, stunning views. Awesome atmosphere!
The food was very very good - the mahi tacos were unreal! Overall this is a very cute and trendy spot with good vibes. Service wasn’t bad just pretty slow and it wasn’t busy.
Not what I expected. Very basic menu, basic ambiance and basic service. I expected a more high end experience.
Food was delicious, drinks even better.
I have lived next door to the Empire Hotel for years but never knew they had a rooftop. It was a warm evening and so good to sit at comfortable banquettes in the fresh air with a city lights view. It was pretty well filled, mostly with young people. They serve drinks and snacks, but the snacks were really very good. Flatbreads, sliders, lots of good things to nibble on and we made it do for dinner. The help were very nice and efficient. I highly recommend this. There was an area that had a roof and an indoor space that was not used but it would be chilly to be out there if it were below 60's. I didn't see heat lamps but you might inquire if they are getting them.
Service was terrible. The waiter forgot our order on multiple occasions. We ended up waiting 30 mins for a drink, only for us to have get up go to the bar and order ourselves.
I had my ID as 21 and was with a 20 year old, we explicitly stated we were not drinking and just wanted to dine. We were turned away even though we had a reservation. Terrible service!
Great time! Nice view with a nice staff. Everything is socially distant.
I had higher expectations for the drinks, but the food was great. It is fairly quiet during the week nights.
Amazing drinks and wonderful views!
I will definitely come here again. I enjoyed myself and my friend were happy. Our server was amazing and she definitely made us feel safe!
Very good time at Empire rooftop, it has a lot of space even for large parties (we were 7). Very good cocktails and food !
Had a slight problem with the seating arrangement, It was quickly rectified. Everything else was great! Will definitely recommend and I'll be returning back soon!
Wonderful ambience. Beautiful view. The food was tasty. Good deal on the Prosecco bottle. I recommend going with friends or take that special someone on a date.
Nice for a quick and a quiet birthday gathering
Great views of the Lincoln center and Lincoln Square. An amazing staff that brought us our food and drinks extremely fast and were very gracious towards us
Would've liked to received better seating view was blocked from sunset
Excellent wait staff! ..
Really nice rooftop space. It was large, spaced out and really nicely decorated. Good view up the upper west and very good service.
Food was ok.
I would definitely go back.
The food was amazing, the drinks were incredible, and it is so much cheaper than other rooftop bars.
Really enjoyed the ambiance, service and the food! Will definitely be back!😊
It has been my second time in a week here. It was very well set up for the “Safe Dining” experience. The service is incredibly quick. *Note* the food portions are larger for the right items. The staff will guide you through the menu if you ask. They also had a few specials. The food is shareable appetizers. All fine to noosh on. Cocktails were great. We were able to stay a bit later and even added another guest after asking the host pre hand. They were very accommodating. The Cabanas are nice if available.
Cocktails were amazing, and the space is beautiful. Felt very safe with the capacity restrictions and space between tables.
