    Pink AF Brunch. It was cute but meh...service was very slow, the brunch menu was limited for 'real' food. The pink food and drinks were fun but VERY pricey.

    Overpriced, watered down, overly sweet drinks were served in plastic cups and we’re convinced they contained barely any alcohol; music was so loud our waiter couldn’t even hear us to take our order; the actual outdoor rooftop part is closed and they won’t let you out there so no good views of the city or rooftop picture opportunities. Really didn’t feel like we were at a rooftop bar, super disappointing.

    Rude terrible elevator man for two happy birthday girls. Terrible food I mean worst ever! The tables are dirty and worn out. It's perfect for posting pictures to hype up the business but not worth any amount of money. If you are going there to drink then this place would be great. Not a place for brunch!

    Seamless experience from checking in to dining experience. The ambiance was everything as well as the staff was very nice and hospitable. They even brought out a cupcake with a sparkler when I told them we were celebrating my friends birthday. For my second time being there and my friends first time we truly had an amazing time and would def come back again

    What an enjoyable night at Magic Hour! We made our reservation only 30 minutes before, showed up a little early and the host was welcoming. The entire time I was there, I kept thinking what an awesome place this would be to take the gals for brunch some time. In the evenings, it’s a great place for a girls night out too. This establishment definitely knows its target audience — the drinks are so tasty and the decorations were great for a little photo op. All this being said, I went with my boyfriend here and we had an amazing time! We got a berry bubbly, party pouch, and the fix. Our server was so kind, she was very easygoing and polite! All in all, great experience and energy from everyone around us!

    When we made the reservation, some very relevant points were not specified on the website. On the reservation website, each person would be entitled to 1 drink, however, when we got there we had no choice, the only option was a hot drink which we certainly wouldn't choose. The same thing happened with dessert, we couldn't choose. The dessert was cake, which wouldn't be our choice either as neither my boyfriend nor I really like cake. the main course was good but I didn't think it was anything special considering the price of the dinner. conclusion: horrible experience, we left there and went to another restaurant, we ate and drank much better for the same price. They should make it clearer on the booking website that the customer has no choice. I've never paid so much for such a bad experience, I wouldn't go back even for free.

    We ordered shared food, it took almost 1 hour to arrive, and it was average. We ordered calamari, chicken fingers (not fingers), and tortilla chips (it was good). The cocktails are poorly served in plastic glassware and flavors were ok, expensive for the quality you receive over the price. Ambient was ok, overrated for what you expect.

    I was very underwhelmed with our experience. We brought the Galentines day experience package (the most expensive one). I noticed that the host kept asking if ppl had reservations which we did. I noticed that everyone with reservations were going to the entrance on the right, and for some reason I went to the left, which was less decorated, and everyone was more casual, which I felt overdressed. I did however, ask my server if we were able to switch sides because we did buy a package and we were here for the experience. She was lovely and let her manager know that we wanted to be seated in the other area which they were very nice and accommodated. We proceeded to tell our new server that we had a package we showed her on our phone and she went on to say that she had to check for herself which she came back and confirmed that we did indeed have a package. We asked her what it included, which she proceeded to tell us. Our drink that was included was basically champagne with a little cotton candy which was selling for $25 which was insane. We had a small plate which I got the truffle grilled cheese, tasted OK which came with the tomato soup now this is where I had the issue the menu said that it came with gruyere cheese but my cheese was yellow and gruyere cheese is white. The manager proceeded to tell me they mix cheddar and Swiss to MAKE gruyere cheese. Which should of been stated on the menu they weren’t actually using gruyere cheese which is why I wanted it and let’s not get started on the stab cake which was 90% frosting (which tasted grossed). When we did get to the cake it was ok. The experience definitely wasn’t worth the $95pp we paid. Which included tax and gratitude before the service which is possible why the service wasn’t above and beyond. Wouldn’t do another experience there again. And if you’re gonna have an experience for a certain holiday, you should up your dress code. I’ve been here before and I’ve had a great experience on a regular night.
