Was not able to eat on the rooftop because of the cold weather and winds but we were allowed to enjoy our drinks up there and see the view of the city. It was absolutely gorgeous watching the sunset.

Recommend this place for the views alone. The food menu is limited and what food I did order (Duck Wings) were a bit overcooked. Had reserved a seat on the rooftop, but was informed when arrived they were not providing service to it. This was disappointing and confusing as the weather was decent and there were plenty of customers to have provided service for by staff.

Very nice place to go for a drink and a small bite. Is definitely a popular place for 20 somethings after work, so may feel crowded at times. The view is beautiful on a nice evening, and the food, drink and service were solidly good.

Loud place, where the business casual dress code was completely ignored by half of the guests. Seating arrangements where dreadful, as you would probably be sitting far away from the edge with views, surrounded by loud alchohol drinking work buddies who treat the rooftop as a cheap pub...

We went for the view, but the service was terrible. The appetizers and entree came out at the same time, making the entree freezing cold by the time we could eat it. The server only came to our table to drop the food, and returned 15 minutes later with a bill. We were in and out in 30 minutes. I wouldn't recommend, too expensive for McDonald's like service.

We had a reservation to celebrate by 30th bday. We were greeted and seated promptly. When the server approached the high top she did not have a friendly demeanor, she was busy, we order a bottle of wine but she brought two glasses only, not the bottle, we ordered two appetizers and the runner brought them, noticed we didn’t yet have utensils or plates to share and left us there. I waited a bit to see if the server would come by but she did not, I had to stand up and asked her to bring them. She checked on us afterwards but never asked if we were ready to order dinner and by that point my husband and I had decided to continue with our dinner somewhere else not only because of the lack of service but ALSO because we were so uncomfortable with people standing right next to our table and crowding our table, people were trying to snap pictures and making you uncomfortable because they are literally on top of you. I would say, come get a drink and enjoy the view, don’t dine here!
I noticed the table next to us also got up to order drinks from the bar Bc the waitress was not checking on them, when we left I noticed the front lounge couches were also getting up and asking the server for things... by then it was clear to me that it was not her sole fault that she is extremely busy with too many tables that she can’t handle, this is a MANAGEMENT issue! Managers should be there to support and obviously she did not have the support of other teammates or management because she was swamped and solo, sucks to have an evening focused on the service instead of the celebration that you go out for!

We reserved a table, but other people were constantly standing around us, and kept asking us to take pictures of them while we were eating our meal. Some people went as far as putting their drinks on our table. The server was great and asked the people to remove their drinks from our table, which helped a bit, but overall the inconsiderate people around us is what ruined the experience for me.
Perhaps having a designated area for pictures would solve this problem..

Is the view nice? Yes. Food and drink is poor quality. I don’t even mind paying more if the quality was there. Cocktails are poorly made and there are plenty of other rooftop bars downtown that have better food and drinks. Highlight was the hostess. She was very personable and nice. Server was slow despite having only two other tables while we were there.

We enjoyed sharing a squash blossom flatbread and the tasty cocktail menu. The host was helpful in selecting the perfect table for our party of 2. Our server was great helping us narrow down food and drink choices. The view is spectacular and our pictures turned out great!

One of best views in the city!
Wife had lamb and I had the scallops. Friend had the cubano.
All were very good. Lounge on lower floor is also very nice.
Cupulo is super cool and has even better views!

My sons first rooftop experience because school started. The hostess was very sweet and asked how he liked it. The Cuban sandwich was not as I thought it would taste. Definitely will come back. I’ve been here before.

We were the first to be seated and the first diners at the restaurant. Had to wait a long time to place an order. Waiter never came back and checked and had an attitude when we inquired about entree’s. Ambiance was beautiful but food and service left nothing to be desired. Very few food options on the menu. Waiter never offered a dessert menu and we were celebrating a milestone birthday. Disappointed.

I would not recommend LH Rooftop, personally. The view became obstructed quickly, it was very loud, and I paid $20 for two bites of a rib that was mostly pure fat. The duck wings my boyfriend got were just skin, also $20.

Very cool space - absolutely make a reservation no matter when you go. The non-reservation line was pretty ridiculous. While the views are really some of the best in the city, our server could have cared less we were there. 20 minutes before she even showed her face. Unresponsive to our engagement. When we asked how we get a parasol (it was HOT up there in the sun) she whined that we had to give our ID to the hostess station. No offer to do it for us, no offer for a barback, and come to think of it, no mention of it from the hostess station when we walked out. Just a whole lot of "I don't really care" going on on that roof. The beer was cold, at least.
