We had eaten several times on the roof deck, but this was our first time inside. Happy hour pricing was good on the wine. All the food was well prepared and creative. We’ll be back!

I made reservations for 5 people including 2 children, but when we showed up although the place was still pretty empty, they wanted to put us at a high top table. I asked if we could have a regular table since we had kids who could fall off the chair and the guy (I'm guessing he's the owner/manager) said there were no tables available (but the place was empty). He kept repeating that reservations were booked for later in the evening, but I didn't understand why we couldn't have a regular table now as we came in pretty early and had a reservations. I sensed his reluctant to give us a table, but eventually he caved and gave us a table. It was so strange! Maybe he didn't want our business, it was a very uncomfortable experience!

Enjoying the rooftop at Gaslight Bar and Grill during Clifton Fest. Listening to the sounds of soft jazz vocals from Ludlow Avenue. It's a beautiful day for a rooftop lunch. I ordered bruschetta app and the hamburger lunch. The bacon jam, goat cheese bruschetta is so flavorful. I would highly recommend any of the bruschetta varieties including this one. I can't seem to go there and not get the hamburger. It is a solid staple. Consistently, very good quality and tasty. The natural cut fries are a must choose side for lunch. Our server Jack was so charming and accommodating. He was "Johnny in the spot" attentive to the table and made sure we had everything that we needed. In short, great food and great service in a pleasant environment!

We were going to a concert at Ludlow Garage and planned dinner at Gaslight after seeing the menu online. Wish we had known about the rooftop dining, it was full, but the dining room was great. Great service and food!

We decided to have an early lunch at Gaslight Bar and Grill. Host DJ was very friendly and accommodating. We requested rooftop seating on this beautiful day. The patio was nicely shaded with well placed umbrellas. Our server, Hannah, came to the table quickly. She was so pleasant and friendly. We ordered from the lunch menu. I had a burger and fries. The burger was cooked to order and the quality was very good with a lot of flavor. I am a french fry snob and I loved the fries too! The lunch menu is reasonably price and offers a nice variety (good appetizers, a variety of hot sandwich and fresh salads). I've been told the bruschetta is absolutely phenomenal. Our lunch was a leisurely delight. I will definitely be back. I would love to go for dinner. The atmosphere and style of this restaurant (formerly Clifton Library) is lovely.

We dined at Gaslight Bar and Grill for our wedding anniversary. We met 2 other couples there and I requested the rooftop for my reservations. We had the best table on the rooftop and the vibe in that space is relaxing. The service was spot on, the food was absolutely delish, and the ambiance is just what I wanted to celebrate 23 years of marriage. Our reservations were at 6pm and we did not leave until 10:30 that night. The length of our visit speaks to the enjoyable evening we had with our friends and the staff. Highly recommend for any celebration, week night dinner or hot weekend date. We were not disappointed and can't wait to visit again!

Service needs an upgrade. Plenty of help but they were too busy gabbing with each other and not paying attention to patrons. We did the rooftop on a beautiful evening so overall it was very good ambiance. Cocktails were good but you had to wait with an empty glass for 15-20 minutes to order a second round.

We had a perfect night to sit on the roof. The food was great. The service abysmal. I don’t like when I have to get my own menus, water, ask to have our order taken & ask for the check.

There's a nice variety to the menu that should suit many tastes. We had two of the salads, the bacon jam bruschetta, the steak and brie sliders with fries, and everything was delicious. The cocktails are excellent, too, and there's a nice wine and beer selection. Naj was an amazing server, efficient, courteous, non-intrusive but always there on a night when she was managing too many tables imo. The only concern was the noise level; one of us is a bit hard of hearing and it became quite difficult for him to hear the person across the table.

Everything was great except the terrible noise level. I have hearing aids and still couldn't hear the person next to me.
A hugh part of eating out is the conversation, so we most likely won't be back

It was fun sitting on the roof top, where we really enjoyed our meal and drinks. Beer, wine and mixed drinks served timely. I had the Lolita, it was very refreshing and tasty. The four of us had hamburgers, veggie burgers, fries, slaw and almond cake. Burgers were cooked perfect and tasted great and the veggie burger was one of the best in town. Fries were fresh and seasoned perfectly. Make sure you take your sunglasses as half the roof patio is very sunny.

Our service was slow. Food is overpriced. Two of us ordered Caesar salads. When they came we each asked for anchovies, which Caesar salads are commonly served with. They brought them. When the bill came we were surprised that we were each charged an additional $3.00 for the anchovies. No one mentioned this to us when we requested them. Ridiculous.

It's really nice to eat outside up on the roof, especially when you have an umbrella or the sun isn't shining. Food is quite good, as are most of the servers.

The food remains very good and the service has improved. Love that it is in the Clifton neighborhood and is casual. Could have some better value on their wines. Even major restaurants have lower priced wine options.
