Horrible service. We arrived with a reservation and three of the six of us got a drink within 5 minutes then when the other three asked for drinks it took over 20 minutes and I had to chase down another server.

Just because the server says "these drinks will be on me" does not forgive the fact that we only got in one round of drinks because last call was 8 minutes after the drinks arrived. TERRIBLE

You pay mostly for the view. The food menu for brunch is average, not too many options and there is no single vegan option. Our waitress was also not nice, and didn’t want to help us in getting a vegan alternative. We had to ask another waitress and he helped us to get an avocado toast. However, the price was same as the salmon breakfast sandwich, which didn’t make much sense. Overall, the view is totally worth it!

Abysmal. If you will be happy with a great view and a drink, have at it. If you also expect to be treated with any sort of respect for your patronage or consideration of your time, also if you want to eat, skip this place. Service from the host to both waitstaff we dealt with was some of the worst we've experienced in this area (lots of fab places to go). We were ignored for 10+ mins, with reservations, at the door- host was wandering around, not quite busy. We were ignored for another 10 mins after being seated, when service did arrive it was not with any care or grace. Waters never refilled, 2 items ordered just never came. It was pretty busy but... have more staff on shift or don't accept the reservation (made with a credit card deposit no less). Just really disappointing. Definitely avoid for anything but social drinking- including getting those drinks yourself from the bar- with a view. This place is not what it's trying to be.

Overall is a great experience but the person in the reservation area was not really welcoming, the server was so great and friendly to us. The menu there is not many options. But as I said overall was a great place to eat.

Menu options were limited and service was a little slow, but the food was very good (I had the salmon toast) and the drinks were great (I had the Patron Abuja Loco). The views and rooftop ambiance were great.

This is a delightful place to kick back and enjoy a drink. They have a great cocktail list and everything we tried was delicious, and their wine by the glass list was also solid. Our server was fantastic! We didn't try the food, but it appeared to pretty much be your typical bar food. The real star of the show is the lovely view. A very fun place to start or end the evening!

this establishment ruined the surprise we had for our newlywed friends, the server was extremely rude and clearly wasn’t having a good day but that’s still no excuse to have an attitude with your guests. I was disappointed in the fact that they weren’t able to execute my simple request of having a bottle of champagne and custom glasses on the table when we arrived. Not to mention I had dropped them off 2 hours before our reservation. I thought that I was making a smart decision by iterating my request to a manager in hopes to ensure a successful surprise but I guess I was wrong. Extremely disappointing and the servers attitude towards us after the fact was the icing on the cake.

Only reason why I would consider going back here is because the view is beautiful. I just won’t have any special occasions or requests since there seems to be a huge lack of communication and hospitality.

Food was very poor. served on paper plates with plastic 'silverware'. salad was old. guacamole did not seem to be fresh. order the fries - best thing on the menu. Happily service, while slow, was delightful.

Service was awful. Servers were pretty neglectful, took them 30 min to take our food order, but ambiance and views cant be beat. Food was subpar and the menu was super limited. It's basically all apps. You come here for drinks and the vibes, not for a nourishing dinner. Would go back with different expectations and just for the cool vibes.

We really loved the ambiance! I had the salmon brunch meal. It was good, but it needed more of the toppings for flavor. The breakfast sandwiches were liked by all. Caesar salad was excellent, but chicken was put on warm, which always makes the salad a little less refreshing. They made my son a grilled cheese which he loved. Drinks were stiff and delicious, but expensive. Would like to try another meal here since the brunch menu is a bit more limited in variety. But we will definitely be back.

I love the views from Lookout Rooftop and was excited to enjoy my first Saturday night out since the state loosened all COVID restrictions however, the service was horrible! I made a reservation for 9pm and arrived closer to 9:15pm due to parking (I did call ahead to let them know). When we arrived our table was not ready and we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. Once seated, it took about 20 mins for our server to come take our drink order. He disappeared for another 15 minutes before I was able to flag him down with a question about the menu. He quickly answered (yet seemed annoyed) and disappeared again. To clarify he passed our table multiple times but was busy helping other parties. After a while another server came to check on us and we were able to put in our food order. I completely understand it was a busy night but it felt as though we were intentionally being ignored.

In addition, the dinner menu was very limited which was disappointing. The options seem more like appetizers and are not mindful of dietary restrictions.

Booking the high tables in the summer is SO worth it for the view! It was pretty windy but the cocktails were great (though a little pricy). The location can't be beat and on a Sunday afternoon, this was a perfect brunch location.
