Hi,

We went there on Sunday and the service was terrible. It was also terribly organized. We got there on time and waited 50 minutes for our table. At first they said we could order a drink while we waited where they told us to. Then there was a bunch of confusion about that, whether we could or couldn’t.

I’ve stayed at the dream numerous times in NYC. I frequently go to Tao and Beauty and Essex here. In fact I was even at Tao last Wednesday.

The experience was awful. They knew it and they should have at least comped something for a 50 minute wait on our table.

The views were nice. The ambiance and people were chill. There wasn’t a crowd and it was a pretty quiet experience. My table ordered the calamari, a breakfast burrito, Caesar salad, shrimp tacos and a salmon salad. We also ordered a bottle of champagne for mimosas. The only thing we enjoyed was the calamari and the breakfast burrito. The rest of the food was either not prepared to our liking or extremely small portions.

Overall my brunch here was just okay.

I had reservations at 4:45 but when we arrived we had to wait for about 30min the host was very nice and did get us some free champagne drinks for the inconvenience. But still the wait wasn’t ideal having reservations. Everything else was satisfactory

Would skip this entirely if you’re vegan. I read the menu thinking that the many starred offerings could be made vegan because the menu is kind of unclear. They cannot. The only vegan things they actually offer are avocado toast and cauliflower hummus. The avocado toast is actually avocado bread, (there was nothing even remotely toasted or even warmed about it) with six inches of mashed avocado and no other discernible ingredients to elevate the flavor. There were literally three specks of sriracha caviar. THREE. The only other vegan option is the cauliflower hummus which was giant, barely grilled vegetables slathered in oil. They were so oily that they actually glistened in the sun.

A very frustrating experience and to top it off, with all its music and views, the ambiance was just stale. 0/10 do not recommend.

Staff was great. But for the price of the food, It doesn’t match the quality. The menu needs to adjust its price or the chef needs to improve his craft in the kitchen.
