Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge
Visited on a hot weekend in August for brunch. The cooling system is absolutely terrible and they had two space fans that did not rectify the heat. I would not go back in the middle of summer it’s too hot to enjoy anything. The waitress was not very attentive especially with refilling water given the fact that my friends and I were dripping in sweat as we waited for our meals. The food was good arrived hot and to taste.
As guests of the hotel, everyone raves about how great the brunch is here. We decided to make a reservation for Sunday at 11am. Once we got there, they could not find our reservation as their systems don’t always sync with Open Table (then why make it an option?) Once we got in, we were seated in an area with a good “view”. Sun was hot beaming on us with no breeze and our backs to everyone. After 10 min of no service we went to get our own water from the bar. We had two different servers in a matter of 10 minutes and service was BLAH. We quickly ate and left. Will never return. Do better.
Magic hour rooftop bar and lounge was very nice! Me and my friends went for brunch hour and the food was very good. The rooftop is a nice cute place with beautiful decorations and it also has mini golf which was fun! Overall it was very nice and I enjoyed!
This was our first time finally going & we honestly had the best time. The food & drinks were pricey, but delicious! Our waiter was very patience(my date was kinda late so I prolonged ordering til she got there). Everyone was super nice & welcoming. The ambiance & the atmosphere were relaxing. Photo-worthy background! I cannot wait to come back.
Good food but super expensive and was disappointed when we got there and the picture spots were closed due to events.
We visited as a group of friends on our last night in New York and we all came away wishing we hadn’t. The staff were rude and unhelpful, the cocktails were weak and badly made and to top it all off we were hassled three times to leave the bar despite the fact we were still waiting for the bar staff to process our payment. The view is underwhelming (most of it is obscured by cheap plastic coverings) and it’s seriously overpriced. New York has so many nice rooftop bars to visit - don’t waste your time and money at this one.
Food wasn’t terrible drinks are always great here
Awful experience, unprofessional staff and they didn’t honor our reservation after we drove an hour to get there. Very disappointing and we won’t be returning.
Fun place! Good service. Good food!
Staid there for over an hour, without being served (they didn't even have the decency of offering us a glass of water). Bedises, I was sat at a table and, then, asked to move, because it was already reserved. Worst experience ever!
The experience was amazing! Definitely something you can only get in NYC!
It was awesome! I will definitely be visiting again during after hours to check out that vibe. Food/Drinks are pricey but everything in NYC is.
Service was excellent. We were there for brunch and both ordered the Avocado Toast. Be aware, the photos online are deceiving. The space is very small and the skyline is only visible from certain areas.
Great place. Lots of fun. However, there didn't appear to be much alcohol in the drinks. We're lightweights and nothing affected us.
Had to wait a long time to be seated. I had a 2:00pm reservation and my party was not seated until 3:45pm
Fab, quirky place. Fun experience. My seat faced Empire State Building. Great vibe, will definitely be recommending it!
Rooftop experience was great especially since we got to sit in the carousel seats. What could use improvement is the service and cleanliness of glassware which was lacking. Our champagne flutes had some leftover food (possibly berries) stuck on them
Loved it ! Food, service, atmosphere were all great.
Although they could not find our reservation they still sat us immediately. Sadly it was raining but we still enjoyed ourselves. The service was excellent and the food was very tasty. The pancake stack is huge and worth it ! The egg sandwich was delicious and the breakfast combos were very good. Would like to go back next time in the city.
Always a good time at magic hour. Food is so yum, my team and I ordered all the plates available. Our fave was the honey chicken, the quesadillas were good also. The drinks are a bit pricey. We got the pouch and the jalapeño cocktails both good. But the jalapeño could have been a bit stronger considering the $17 price tag. But I’d go again this was my second time here. Did I mention they always have the best Djs. Great music.
The food was absolutely awful!! We got the chicken and waffles sharing portion. The waffle was cold and stale, it was so hard. They must have made it days ago and left it out and just threw it on the plate. The chicken was just as bad. It tasted kind of dirty. It was also almost inedible because the outside was so hard. I've never had fried chicken with that kind of outside. So terrible. We hardly ate it because it was inedible so we left there hungry and very disappointed. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.
RJ ensures we had an excellent table. Olga was attentive, service with a smile. The crowd was beautiful, and music was bumping. Another great night at Magic.
Food was very good and presented well, but the experience was overshadowed by the fact that the service was slow, the chairs were uncomfortable, the menu was limited, and I paid $25 for a Caesar salad with a small piece of chicken sliced on top.
Nice view and good food. Upbeat and vibrant ambiance. Good drinks also.
No one helped us for 30 minutes so we left
The food is AMAZING, now marked as my second favorite brunch -food place in NYC. A bit pricey but DONT forget where you are and what’s around.... midtown with the view of the Empire State 😉
RUDE STAFF, MEDIOCRE FOOD.. you can find a lot better in NYC
Just what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary.
Kind of expensive but a great experience, loved the pancakes!
Over rated , nothing like photos . Didn't eat the food as wasn't hungry but drinks were stupid prices . Smallest crazy golf I have ever seen . Cutlery and glasses really really dirty . Wanted access to other side for live band was told had to book table with $600 minimum spend !! Would not return . No view outside
I was very impressed with the place. I loved how it looked like we were going into an exclusive club from the outside entrance. The food was fantastic!
loved the pancakes was so amazing the energy was great the music was good. deinfitely coming back here in the summer. I would recommend this place to all my friends !
This restaurant was amazing! So beautiful and the food was fantastic! Loved the mini golf!!!!
Went to Magic Hour for brunch. Maybe it has more appeal at night, because during the day it was nothing special. The food was decent and priced adequately for the area. However service was TERRIBLE... we were never checked on, not even once. We had to go up to the bar just to request our check. There’s so many other rooftops in the area, I’d pass on coming back here.
Fabulous fabulous fabulous. ! We went over the weekend. We had a great time. Our waitress was awesome! It was my birthday so we had the boozy cupcakes and they put a big sparkler in it !!! The cocktails were great. And the cotton candy pancakes were the cutest thing over ever seen!!
Great ambiance! Good location close to Penn Station, food great & awesome specialty drinks
I went for a brunch/lunch and had a great time on the carousel.
Magic Hour was the perfect place for my birthday! The drinks were a little expensive, but they were all worth it. The food was amazing as well!! Highly recommend and would love to come back again!
