Worst food and drinks. The value of such a great place with this amazing view is consumed by poor menu and quality. Very very overrated place do not even attempt to book.

Went for a birthday brunch with girlfriend. Amazing food and the view was phenomenal. The brunch cocktails were great as well. Highly recommend ‘Release the Karen’ for a boozy cocktail/coffee hybrid. Vanilla bourbon French toast was a hit with the girlfriend and I as well.

We were served in plastic cups and the food came in the TO GO BOX!
Servers almost never showed up and the prices were a bit too high for being served in plastic cups, utensils and the food on the to go box.

Worst birthday brunch experience. We had a drink paid our bill and went to Gather. Much better experience!

The rooftop has a great view and a nice location. However, the drinks are served in plastic cups. I know this might not be a big deal to some people, but if I’m out with my friends, celebrating a good week on a moderately expensive rooftop, and I order a $40 glass of scotch, I don’t want to have a plastic cup. The food, although delicious, comes in paper boxes on your table.

When I arrived, the location and service were fantastic. However, over the course of the night, I realized that I’ll probably never come back here. It’s one of the rare Boston locations that can really impress a date, family member, or friend—but unfortunately this is ruined by plastic cups, paper boxes, and an overall low-effort atmosphere. I will gladly return when there are glasses and plates.

Only thing we would complain about is the plastic cups. Not sure why they need to be plastic inside, for a $17 glass of wine.

Everything else is great.

We were outdoors on the couches under heat lamps. The view is amazing! Drinks were good and food is okay. A bit pricey, but you are paying for the view. Make a reservation for around sunset.

First of all this a bar not a restaurant. There is NO view except for a giant building. There are 10 menu items that are all disgusting. Do not waste your time.

Host was on phone when I got there and didn’t realize I was standing right in front of him. Server took a while to come to our table even though we’d been sitting for a while. Drinks took a while to come to table. I don’t think I’ll be revisiting.

Our first time at the rooftop we sat “inside”. The music was loud and the food was average. The prices were on the higher end but we expected it to be more expensive for the views. Friendly staff and good view. Just don’t go for the food. The atmosphere is good for a party like event music was good for a hip dance crowd. On the louder side

The view is great. I’m pregnant so I liked that they had a list of mocktails. However, the service was extremely slow. The GM wouldn’t let my 30 year old husband have a drink because his NY license expired 2 months ago and NY DMVs have been closed - even though the NY government has publicly stated all expired IDs are still valid until 2/26/21 due to covid closings.

The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate! Our server, Stephanie was a sweetheart. Super knowledgeable and patient. Our bartender, Brian was funny and had an amazing cocktail menu to select from. Locally sourced honey (he sourced it himself). The manager, Mike was very friendly and not your typical manager type. He genuinely cared about our experience there. Definitely will be back!

We had a great experience here. Brian, the bartender waited on us and made a great spicy margarita. Although the drinks were a bit pricey and there was a limited menu, we still enjoyed it. I had read reviews so knew to expect plastic utensils and plates. If you like quiet, I wouldn't recommend. The view is perfect and fun people watching. It was a mild evening so we went outside for a bit. I will go back especially in the nice weather.

Absolutely beautiful place, food was remarkably good and at a good price, and the cocktails were more than worth the money. The staff were friendly and respectful, and the seating felt pandemic-safe (even to someone as conservative about pandemic restrictions as I am). Would absolutely recommend.

The view of the harbor and city was great. The menu only offered appetizers. The food was served in take out containers with plastic implements and the drinks were all served in plastic cups. Very disappointing for such an upscale venue.

I’d loved it here! I came here with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. Since the moment we walked in, the place was lively and I just knew we were going to have a great time. We sat inside near the door but the heating lamp over us did a great job keeping us warm. The drinks we great, the food was great and our service was outstanding. The music was throwback r&b mixed with a little pop that night I believe & it was unexpected but very well received... by the whole place. Everyone was singing and seemed to really be enjoying themselves. It was a great experience with a great view!

It’s completely unnecessary to serve drinks and food in paper and plastic containers for the price you’re paying. I understand Covid concerns, but that’s embarrassing for such a beautiful establishment. I had a great time, but that was quite disappointing.

The views are what makes this place great! The service was good and the food was yummy. The food menu was very much like tapas & I had wished they had a burger or something along those lines (which they do on their afternoon menu). I would go back again!

2nd time here, and soon to go back. Can't beat the view on the deck, the wind protection, the heat lamps, great food and service---for very reasonable prices. Bathrooms are super clean with extra effort for hands free. My farmer's omelette had grilled veggies---so good. The homemade salsa is the best ever. Next time I am bringing a little container to bring the rest of our salsa home, knowing our left over one would be thrown out..

I would have appreciated knowing that my food would be in a to-go box especially with the price of the food. Also, my drink for the price was not good. Loved the view and the vibe was good, but the service and price for the food/drinks was not ideal.
