However, the menu items on open table are not up to date. They have a very limited menu. If you’re going here for drinks I would recommend, with a date or with friends. If you’re going here for food, stay far away.

The atmosphere is ok. Nothing every rooftop in Manhattan doesn't have. The city sky scape really does all the work. I came with a group of six to celebrate my friend getting married. I wanted to order some apps for the table but my waiter told me none were good for sharing, even if ordering multiples. Everything was single serving. This was especially frustrating with a group because we just wanted some guac and chips and some ceviches for the table to start. Something to share with a few drinks. We ended up getting 4 guacs for the table since we felt silly ordering one per person. Servings were so incredibly small both for apps and dinner. Drinks were overpriced and mediocre. My friend had a cracked glass and her drink was spilling out on the table. You thought for $18 a margarita that they would have taken it off the bill. The waiter repeatedly told me he didn't have any hot sauce. I had to ask another waiter and then he said, "of course! we have two different house hot sauces". Which makes me think our waiter didn't care to know or to ask his kitchen. I also asked our waiter if we could do something special for the bride. Maybe a special shot? Or app? He told me they didn't do that there. There are so many better rooftop bars that are more fun, have better drinks/food and killer atmospheres in the city. Stay away from mediocracy.

It's my go to for outdoor dining in the neighborhood, but also great when enclosed in the winter. Limited menu, just enough variety - the ribeye was one of the best I've ever had. Great service, watermelon marguerita tops.

I recommend ordering the steak medium rare. My only disappointment was in the tortillas. It came with only 3 to share and had to pay $3 for 3 more. I understand paying for sides such as guacamole, etc but tortillas? That was a very tacky thing to charge for in an otherwise very nice and classy place.

Thoroughly enjoyed my time even though it was jam packed. The large crowd phased out after the eclipse which totally changed the ambiance. Great for drinks, the food was okay but the scenic view made up for it!

Tacos were bland and unimaginative. Corn salad was oily and flavorless. Cocktails were ok but overall a pretty lame and disappointing experience.

The service was slow and not very friendly. The food/ drinks were overpriced for its quality and although I made a reservation, there was confusion about where to sit us. The only good thing was the view.

Then someone from the staff dropped salsa verde on the floor which splattered all over my husband's jeans and didn't bother to pick it up, clean or apologize. Lastly, there was a private party by the pool (which I can understand brings in more money), but the music was too loud (in addition to bad - but really loud to the point that it didn't sound good). We weren't aloud to smoke by the pool, or the restaurant of course (which again, I understand), but meanwhile the private party attendees were smoking weed. Terrible and expensive evening.

Awful food--how does a Mexican restaurant ruin refried beans and guacamole? The menu is ridiculously limited--no rice at a Mexican restaurant? Or hot sauce???? Terrible service--none of the servers could answer the most basic of questions without having to go ask the kitchen. And so overpriced!!! One of the worst dining experiences we've ever had.

When I arrived, I was directed to the rooftop bar, which had a limited menu seemingly unrelated to the restaurant menu. I had the half chicken entree. It was well cooked, but had little to no seasoning beyond the grill marks. It was served on a flat block of wood alongside a grilled corn and tomato salad. As soon as I cut into the chicken, the juices started running off the wood onto the table. What a mess. The server told me they had just opened the day before, so maybe things will improve, but my visit was a disappointment, to say the least.

We were however allowed to go up. Upon arriving a very bad smell met us. Heat lamps had been turned on full power and the climate was close to a tropical forest. The waitor who met us was dressed in a wool coat(!) It all seemed so uninviting that we cancelled our reservation and went somewhere else to dine.

We were excited about trying the one on the rooftop. Alas, it did not live up to our expectations. When we emerged from the elevator, we were met by a wall of sound: very, very loud disco-type music and people shouting to be heard over it. We were seated at a table at the edge, so the view was terrific, but not far enough away that the sound was diminished. It was at a level that made conversation impossible. A long time passed before we were offered water or drinks. Still more time before menus were brought, and another long delay before our order was taken. The food, when it arrived, was good but not great. And another very long delay ensued before we were able to pay our bill and escape. Maybe it was an off-night, but we'll be reluctant to give it a second try.

If you're looking for a new place to be cool and be scene, no one is interested. It just has the feel of a chill neighborhood resto that keeps the menu simple and small, serves quality food from a tiny kitchen, good cocktails without being overly "mixologized". Not a place to bring a gaggle of friends looking to get hammered at dinner, the place is too small for drunk "woohoo's" and other patrons would probable revolt. It's not pretentious at all, just a cool mix of people enjoying the evening rooftop breeze and decent views, honest well-prepared food that is not overly ambitious but sufficiently interesting you could go weekly easily. Don't tell anyone else.

I had asked the waitress if the bartender knew how to make a French 75 before ordering and she did confirm. However, the drink was not made correctly. I sent it back and asked if I can just have wine. She came back with another cocktail and said that he remade it correctly, however it still was not right. I just wanted a glass of wine at that point. Since I didn't want the bartender to keep trying and making me drinks that taste bad. At that point, I did not feel comfortable to send back the drink, so I ended up having a drink that was not made correctly.

Younger crowd and noise level was just right so that you could talk to the person in front of you without yelling. Disappointed however that the glasses that our drinks were served in were plastic. Ordered a margarita and it was served in a small glass.

Downstairs they were vacuuming the furniture (strange) and upstairs they were clearing everything for a private party. We were told it was closed and then when we said that we had a reservation we were offered to sit in a corner while the staff moved things around and set up for the party. I've no problem with private parties....they should have told us by email, or not let us reserve in they first place. Trying to be too cool for their own good.

The first thing noticed was the slightly off-putting smell. Mop water maybe? Delicious ginger margarita but at $17, not worth more than one. Good menu for sharing. Olives were delicious. Croquettes also tasty. Even on the roof on a blustery night, space was plenty warm.
