The service was great and the space. Both of us felt though that for what we got that the prices were quite high. None of the food was that great but we did enjoy the overall experience and service.

Everything went well, until some customer who was eating alone started screaming about some cockaroach that she found... very awkward and unneeded situation.

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.

Ordered orecchiette pasta that had pesto, broccoli, and sausage. The pasta tasted only of garlic and tasted old.

The food was so bad! I will not be eating there ever again. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and we had to leave and go eat somewhere else. The ambiance was so perfect, sunset and views but food wasn’t a disappointment.

The ambiance was great. They had enough heaters to keep you warm. Also, the drinks were okay in the sense that they seemed a bit watered down. The food was very good (burgers).

By far the best experience during COVID. Exceptional views, great food and excellent service. Only non favorable comments is the check in area is not organized . Squeeky wheels were seated promptly while those waiting patiently had a longer wait time

It was good but felt like they were trying to rush us out the door. I know there is a time limit but still. They charge us a cake cutting fee of $25 which is fine but then just brought it out with no cutter not plates we had to ask them if they could being us something they said no we will have the chef cut it and being it out. Pieces were all crazy sizes and not sure they brought out the whole cake after they cut it. But it was still a nice place and very nice atmosphere. Good service just a little in a rush like we were a number.

Check in staff was amazing. Very quick and hassle free. Once we were sat, we noticed there wasn’t many patrons, and plenty of staff. We sat for 25 mins before we had to ask who was working our table. Another 10 mins went by before a server came and finally took our order. Her customer service was a delight, and the meal was delicious. Lots of over heard complaints by nearby tables and they don’t seem to have a solid serving system down but the drinks and food were good.

We had to wait 45 minutes for our table to then get upstairs to a completely empty restaurant. Since we had to wait so long for our table we were only able to order one round of drinks before it was last call and we had to leave. Seriously?? Crazy that restaurants treat people like this during Covid.

I called all week two confirm I had to reservations when I got there they didn't have tables available for my party of 7 due to covid restrictions and I had to wait over an hour and a half. Then once we got upstairs half my party still had to wait and not be seated and there were several empty tables. Very unhappy with this place and probably won't ever go back.

2 of 6 meals were not entered to the kitchen so almost half our group ate significantly later than everyone else. We also indicated we were celebrating a birthday when we made the reservation and confirmed with the waitress that she would bring something special out but nothing ever arrived. There was no bill adjustment or apology for either of these issues. I also generally don’t like that they have zero glassware which makes the whole meal feel cheap. Even the champagne flutes are plastic. Overall the food is expensive, but average and the view is stunning but the service quality is low. Good to show off to friends from out of town but not a good place for quality or to come regularly.

CDC guidelines are enforced and that is perfectly fine. Molly, our host, was rude about their rules. We did not know we had to order a meal and ordered appetizers instead to get a drink. Our waiter did not tell us we had to order an entree and instead of politely telling us, he told Molly secretly. Molly then came to our table and rudely told me and my guest we must order food or she's going to bring us our check to leave. If it was not for us driving a distance to the location and not having options, I would have definitely left. There's also a 90 min cap. for sitting and when our 90 min were up, she again rudely came over to tell us to leave. I did not notice the same treatment with everyone so maybe we angered her but still no way to treat guests.

Second time giving this place a chance (first time was not a great experience) hoping it was just an off day. Both times the restaurant was very quiet (this time only one other table) and still seemed close to impossible to get any sort of attention during our visit. Having to look around to find out waiter and wave him down... waiter was in corner rolling silverware, singing and dancing, talking with coworkers... forgetting we were even there. Also high prices for very basic food (my pizza was nothing special at all) and valet tried to overcharge us until I pointed out the sign... $20 valet for less than an hour at lunch.. nothing pleasant about my experience either time. Only nice thing was the view.
