Beautiful ambiance, with extraordinary views. Once busy the service was a little harder to get their attention for a refill.

Love the roof top vibe, however, the food was subpar and the mimosas weren’t good and extremely over priced.

Host on the 2nd level seemed hesitant to seat us. Drinks were pretty weak to the point that we ended up ordering a bottle of wine and multiple shots & doubles. Waiter was nice, but didn’t seem to care about our concern over the quality of drinks. Food was very average for the location and brand. Ordered - calamari, shrimp cocktail, oysters, the salmon big plate, and a salad. Only thing I’d recommend is the calamari as the shrimp tastes like it was sitting out for a couple of hours (dry). Spent $400 between two people at lunch, which isn’t a problem, but the service and quality of food should’ve been better. Amazing views though.

Perfect for date night, if you want to impress someone, or taking pretty pictures! Has an amazing view and ambiance.

Food is good! I ordered the steak, it needed a little more salt but was good. The asparagus was delicious. The potatoes were subpar. Not sure how you mess up potatoes but they were dry and needed seasoning.


The alcoholic drinks are not good. Was very dissatisfied by this. The lemonade is their most popular apparently but honestly it was subpar for the high price.

Service is amazing. Very attentive and polite. My only comment is that we had a reservation and still had to wait about 30 min. Overall I enjoyed my time!

Before the pandemic, the rooftop experience, drinks and food were good, prices reasonable and variety of selections. So excited for it to reopen and disappointed by the cocktails and the food. Prices of drinks across the board are up by about $5 as well as menu items. The food wasn't anything special or yummy. Atmosphere is still nice, service is friendly. Hopefully, it'll improve in a couple months. Only recommend if you're going for the rooftop experience.

We came here for my birthday with four of my friends and we had a blast. The service was great and the food was next level good. I appreciated them seating us close to a view of West Hollywood on the rooftop. The cesar salad was tasty and crunchy. The calamari was tangy and clean and the oysters were fresh. The flatbread was also great but kinda small. I got the 24 oz ribeye for my main course and its worth every penny especially with the sides they provide. 10/10 experience. Will be coming back.

I was very excited to go visit for the first time, since I heard that it is an awesome place with great ambiance.
As we came in, Victoria, the hostess upstairs was very pleasant.
The ambiance was nice, great view of Hollywood, we enjoyed the music that was playing. Definitely 5 starts for ambiance.
There is a 2 hour limit for the seating, which should be taken into consideration by the servers.
The drinks looked good on the menu but we're very watered down, so we changed to champagne.
The server, we had to flag him down to get our appetizer order and also to get our dinner order. Server was bad!
There was this tall busser with braids which I really wish I could mention his name(if I knew), he was very kind to us and took care of one our round of drinks .
That really made our night, not because it was free but someone made up for the bad service we got.
As we left they were setting up for bottle service. I would like to come back to check that out, but not to the restaurant.
