We went for brunch and the views were decent but the food was mediocre. Service was slow and we ate with plastic utensils and trays. Probably a better late night spot than a brunch spot.

Drinks are very expensive there. We went for brunch and they were more expensive than the food! We ordered a breakfast sandwich that came with fries and we were extra charged for the fries! I wouldn’t mind to pay for fries as long as they communicate that to me. I had a reservation that I paid 50usd upfront, the amount was not applied on my check. The view is nice, that’s all. Would never recommend this place for food or even drinks.

The view was absolutely amazing. I’d come back for the view but the food is average and the service wasn’t great.

They didn’t get us water and did not approach us for 15min after we had already been seated so I had to go and ask about service.

It was a great place to be during covid as we were 1 of only 2 groups in the restaurant. Beautiful view of the city indoors. Service was great. The brunch menu is a bit limited but the food was delicious.

I seriously do not know why this place has mixed reviews. This place was amazing! Very accommodating with my reservation.. they did everything I requested. Very friendly staff, the drinks and food were good. I mean if people are surprised by the prices.. I mean come on people it’s a city and a popular bar what do you expect?? Definitely would suggest this bar for a date night, night on the town or a special occasion. Thank you Lookout Rooftop!

The view is nice but the drinks are way too weak to be $17 and the food tasted like it came out of the microwave. This is a cheap college bar disguised with an overpriced menu because of the view/location. Take my advice, eat before and just go for one drink and the view

Gorgeous location with view. Unfortunately they were out of quite a few beers when we went. This created some confusion when trying to order from the waitress. The food was surprisingly good and the heaters kept us warm in the fall weather. Overall if was a very pleasant experience.

The Lookout Rooftop definitely has an amazing view, but for brunch it's just ok. There are not a lot of options and the one's they have are just ok.

If they could improve the food options it would be an amazing brunch spot, not just a bar.

We get there and you don’t need a reservation. Actually the better view is in the walk in areas. But, we get to the reservation area which always for a server and there were 3. All of them just hanging out laughing, which is fine, but took 10 mins just to ask us for our drink order. There were 4 more tables, so it’s not that they were busy at all. The drink prices were a bit insane. A bud light was $8. Come on…., the view was fantastic though and bc of the view we were able to see the barking crab and had a much better time there. The food choices at look out was weak. 5 options and none really looked or sounded excellent. So come here for the view and get a few pics in, but you don’t really need a rsvp.

Lookout Rooftop is AMAZING!! I would highly recommend it here to anyone. We celebrated my daughter's 27th birthday and couple of her friends in Boston were able to join us.

I am planning to come back with a group on Nov 6th & cannot wait!!

Food was great and the cocktails were fantastic!
