    Showed up and they were closed. Why are you still taking reservations? People travel from far and it’s an inconvenience.

    Atmosphere amazing, took a little long to make the mimosas. Chips were salty to my friends but not I, pancakes were not filling I should’ve got the burger. 7/10 overall, I would return though. Music was 2/10

    We made dinner reservations and after waiting for the waiter to stop his personal conversation with another server, only to find that they may not be offering food on this night because they didn’t have many reservations. The woman who checked us in did not say anything about this but long story short, no dinner was offered. How obnoxious that we were asked to confirm our reservation the day before but no hint of the possibility that we may not be able to get dinner! Lane.

    Ignored by the server. Appetizer was incorrect. Glasses were chipped. We asked to sit at a specific table and were told “no” although it was empty all the time we were there. Server was non-existent.

    Took friends visiting from Norway here. The view of Empire State at night is nice and interesting angle. I had a large group for dinner and the hostess wanted to seat us in lounge chairs. Would have been nice for them to offer to pull a couple tables together as there were enough empty ones. But overall ok for out-of-towners.

    I’m a super picky eater but loved everything that I ordered. I got the smash burger & the mango cheesecake and they were to die for. The food is amazing, the lounge area is awesome, comfy and well decorated. And you have the perfect view for the Empire State Building! What more could you want. The only downfall id say is the alcohol prices. Specialty cocktails are $20 and if you want just a regular rum & coke it’s $19 … other than that, my first time experience was amazing and I will definitely be returning!!

    Would not recommend unless you really just want to take some cute photos. Food is ok. Mimosas are not so good. They use a lot of ice when making their pitchers and it just waters down the whole drink. Considering how much you pay that is ridiculous. The servers were good for the most part but seemed to be a little annoyed when our concerns were brought up (understandably). When we mentioned the drinks being watered down the server immediately reached for the cups asking if she should take them away instead of offering an alternative solution. Cute rooftop place but would not go again. Definitely overpriced.

    The location is lovely (with a great view of the Empire State building), but it's fairly pricey for what it is. Also, please be prepared for the AUTOMATIC 20% gratuity on your bill, regardless of how small your group is. Check your bill carefully or else you might end up adding another gratuity on the blank TIP line that show up with your credit card slip. The service was fine, but an automatic gratuity for a small party (2 people) is very presumptuous.

    The ambience was very pretty, from tables to outside seating and dish ware. We were greeted by a lovely host. Our server only checked on us twice when we ordered our food & drinks. We were not checked on after that, when he gave us our check he just put it down and didn’t say anything. Granted he was the only waiter but there were only 5 tables, 2 he served prior to us sitting down. My cauliflower burger was tasty but extremely small portioned. My friend got a “flatbread” pizza, it was not flatbread. The drinks were okay. The music was nice it brought you back to 2005-2013. Also there was a 20% gratuity automatically added to the bill & we were a small group of 3. To be honest, I wouldn’t have given a 20% gratuity because our service simply was not amazing.

    The service was pretty terrible no one ever came over to check on us. We had ordered a burger and the bun was super burnt yet the cheese was COMPLETELY unmelted. The waitress tried to gaslight us about our missing potatoes and when they finally came, they were burnt. Super disappointing. The place has potential and is cute but it isn't worth your time. Overall food quality is subpar and not worth any dollar over $20. Bottomless is only as bottomless as the servers are attentive — def not.

    Great rooftop with ample covered and open spaces. Covered spaces are all glass (as the name implies) so I assume it would be a great place during winter as well. Very cozy seating, sofas, tables for two or larger . Very friendly but courteous service, great drinks that they custom made if you're ready to describe them. Loved the beef sliders and also the chicken kabob, cheese plate could have been better. Great location mid town near transportation. Empire State Building is a real nice back drop especially when it's lighted.

    Excellence from beginning to end. We were kindly greeted and seated. The timing from seating to hosting was perfect. Rachel (our hostess) explained the menu and took our drink order. I didn't get the Bartenders name, but we will call her "Awesome". Rachel always kept a smile and took our appetizer and dinner orders with acceptable timing. Our meals came out with equally acceptable timing. Hats off the chefs who took great care in both preparation and presentation. The food was among the best I've had in the city. The service was among the best I've experienced anywhere. The manager, Allie (forgive if misspelled), checked on us TWICE to make sure we were happy and satisfied. I love when managers do a great job of making me feel important and that my business matters. When my wife and I return, I feel like we won't return as patrons , we will return as family.

    While the ambiance and the view were enjoyable, the entire space was far, far too hot to make the time spent there enjoyable. This may be a better option for late fall or early spring evening dining.

    Found Glass Ceiling online and was excited to try it out. Went for brunch with my dad and the ambience was fun and open. Hostess and waitress were wonderful and very patient with us. Enjoyed our mimosas, croissant sandwich and pancakes. Service was wonderful and will recommend and be coming back for a great brunch with a great view.

    Great ambience but service had such a poor delivery. Didn’t get food for at least another hour thirty minutes and completely ignored us on refilling “our bottomless mimosas.” Food was subpar and waitress initially forgot our order so we had to remind her when she came by an hour later.

    Very bad customer service. I called numerous times, left voicemails and messaged on OpenTable and Instagram and never received an answer. Once I got to the restaurant no one greeted me. It took the waitress a good 15minutes before acknowledging us and bringing us water. Food is overpriced pancakes with food coloring are very small and waffles are frozen - the bottomless cocktails all taste the same, like juice. Expensive and disappointing experience.

    Arrived on time for our reservation for drinks before dinner at Koloman, so I can’t comment on the food. Hostess was great, initially seating us at a table inside and then accommodated us when we asked to move to a table outside. We received water quickly but no server came to our table during our time there. A server attended to someone who was seated immediately before us and never looked our way. The place was maybe 30-40% full with multiple workers standing around, not doing much, some were yawning. My wife and I waited ten minutes before leaving due to the poor service. I know I could’ve made an attempt to flag down a server or get drinks from the bar but if the employees don’t care about helping customers, I won’t spend money there. Drinks were great at Koloman.

    Thought the food was great and our waiter was also very nice and attentive. However the hostess that was at the front and sat us down had a nasty attitude, wouldn’t even refrain from making rude faces in the few minutes we were with her.
