    Disappointed in the lack of outdoor space. I was hoping a "roof top" bar would have more than just a few outdoor seats. At least open the windows. Interior is faded and worn. Probably looks much better at night.

    Staring with the positives, this bar has great drinks. The quality and taste of the cocktails were first class and loved it! Therefore, would highly recommend for cocktail connoisseurs. Some cons were that service time was slow (at least for me party) and the ambiance was average.

    I haven'r been to the roof top at the Beekman in years. It's a nice event space with a great view of the east river. You don't get much of the sunsetting because of the easterly location BUT you do get beautiful color changes on the buildings and the skyline of Queens. We had a nice table albeit a little cramped for three. The service was very good. We had a sweet waitress who made drink recommendations. My only caveat was before being seated the hostess said that to me "as a reminder it is a two hour table limit" I was a bit taken aback. Normally I don't pull the race card but this felt a little racial micro aggression since I was alone when seated. I am sure she would not have assumed a two hour limit if my two white male companions were present. Anyway we didn't leave in two hours. We drank, ate, and spent a nice amount of money for four hours. We never saw the hostess again.

    Despite high hopes, the experience was a bit underwhelming. While my party was told that we would only be able to keep the table for 2 hours, the wait staff made us feel rushed and that time was due to expire any minute as soon as we sat down. Further, we were asked to leave the minute we signed the check even though one person ordered a drink 2 minutes prior to us asking for the check. I was quite appalled and disappointed, as I selected Ophelia for a ladies night out soirée. With the tight space outside and higher food and drink prices, the service did not come close to matching the moment.

    My two girlfriends & I were visiting from Toronto and naturally very excited to try this rooftop out. We made a reservation 2 weeks in advance. However, upon arrival we were surprised to be seated indoors on a single couch with a tiny table in a corner room facing three other couples. We explained that we booked earlier to secure a dining table as we planned to order food but our server said this was the only available table. When our food finally arrived, the employees holding our food did not know where to put three plates because our table barely fit one side plate, along with our drinks and the table centerpiece. A gentleman kindly asked if we wanted to move to a ledge seat & we did not have much of a choice honestly so we spent the rest of our dinner sitting up on a ledge beside one another to eat. The food tasted good but sadly disappointed with my awkward seating, experience, and service.

    The views are cool. The food was not good. Service was okay. The drinks are expensive for what they were. Vibe was a little uppity. The ambience was nice and we met a group of cool people. Probably would not return though.

    The view is limited but it's the best part. Very narrow sitting areas and tables are too small enough room for only one person. The outside chairs were plastic and a bit uncomfortable. Food was ok.

    Small plates for sharing with a spectacular view. Unfortunately, we waited for 40 mins for plates that never came. The server disappeared for 35 mins meaning we had no drinks. We ended up leaving disappointed. The excuse was that “the kitchen was backed up.” However, we ordered hummus. Really? And was the bar backed up that we didn’t have wine? Disappointing. Do not recommend.

    I’m normally not one to leave a bad review, but in this case, I felt like it was necessary. We went on a Sunday at 6PM hoping to watch the sunset from Ophelia’s, but we left shortly after arriving. The photos that are online must be very old. I strongly recommend that they consider updating everything. We were seated at a table in the corner by the window. I couldn’t even focus on the view because I was distracted by the filthy floor and the dripping AC, which they solved by putting a napkin or towel on the floor. We stayed for one drink because we needed one to get over the shock of the whole experience, and promptly left when we decided where we’d go next. We didn’t get anything to eat and weren’t there long enough to comment on the food or service. There are far nicer rooftop bars in Manhattan. If you’re in college or are on a budget and can overlook things like a dirty floor and just want a place with lower priced drinks (for Manhattan prices) then maybe this is the place for you. If prices aren’t a problem, then go anywhere else. Having worked in the industry, you can tell a lot about a place from their standards of cleanliness. If they can’t keep the floor clean, then what on earth does the kitchen look like?

    Very beautiful place with stunning views and good service. The food is fine when it comes to the taste but the variety of items is low. The wine could be served in a better temperature (it was warm, and yes it was red but room temperature for red means 18 C and that was much warmer). The staff is very helpful and worth a good tip. Will be back but for pre or post dinner drinks and not for food
