    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.

    My first time experience at The Glass Ceiling was amazing! Rachel & Aly we’re soo kind and super attentive :) they made my brunch experience very memorable! The decor and ambiance is spot on for the vibe the restaurant gives off. I highly recommend the bottomless mimosa brunch service they offer!

    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.

    The place is cute, the food was sub-par and the service was awful. I couldn’t drink my iced coffee because it was so foul and it was almost impossible to get the server’s attention.

    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.

    Went in for bottomless brunch and the Mac and cheese truffle was delicious and so was the avocado and toast. I like that you can try all the drink flavors. The rose sangria was my favorite, so refreshing.

    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.

    Didn’t have a good experience, rude waitress, the food was terrible, had to wait 20 minutes for check after asked for it - didn’t get a discount was asked by a waitress if could cash app or Zelle her since there system was down. Very rude people working, no proper etiquette of being polite or that you were at rooftop and restaurant

    Don't get me wrong, the drinks and food here were great. What ruined everything for me was the poor service. We were sitting for over half an hour before a waiter came to take our order. And when he finally came to our table, he told us he was doing "last call" for the kitchen since it was closing. Maybe if someone could've gotten to us sooner the staff wouldn't have to worry about any last minute food orders from us (and other patrons). Safe to say, I will not be eating here again

    The venue is lovely. Very friendly for nice photography and themed events. Our waiter was really nice and accommodating, though we observed he was the only main waiter on staff assisted by some back waiters. This resulted in exceedingly slow service.

    Altho our waiter was very nice, he was either overworked or not good at paying attention. For example, having sat outside on the balcony on a beautifully sunny day… cold drinks & water was essential. Almost had to go to the bar myself to get refills. Also noticed four people get up and literally leave since no one went to their table after having been seated for [too] long. It’s a nice open yet intimate space, so staff should have no trouble seeing/paying attention to customers. Positive note, music vibes good and inside decor was nice.

    Came for the $45 bottomless brunch drinks. The food was nothing special. Kind of flavorless and small portions. But the ambiance was cute. Would go back to hang out and drink but probably wouldn’t order food again. Also, I wanted to order the bird cage just to take a pic of it and our server was nice enough to just bring me a bird glass for my bottomless drink so I could take a pic of it. That was very sweet.

    Me and my husband arrived 30 minutes early they had sat us down which was perfect but at one point they forgot about us, a whole hour later I asked who the manager was. She never once came up to us to apologize but she did discounted us in our receipt, but that is not the point she was too busy Being at one table and greeting others indoors, it sucks because the food was amazing but as a manager aka redbull drinking Sara, she was not it! By the way we sat outdoors. Again staff were nice and all but the fact that no one came to us and it took them an hour to realize is insane to me. Also two other tables were having the same issues as well.

    This place is a joke, the service is so garbage. I own two restaurants and grew up in the industry and this place was a total joke for our mothers day brunch. The waiter came over twice our whole meal, we had to ask to order after 35 minutes of waiting. They didn’t even get our order right. Everyone are us seemed to be experiencing the same confusing.
