    A pity? No, a disaster. From A to Z. One hour standing, waiting for our table, booked 2 weeks earlier. Unprofessionnal waitresses making you wait 5 to 5 minutes again til your legs burn and finally asking you to stay calm after they told they understood you !!!!! This is a real shame. Then, 1/2 to be able to order for an ordinary Drunk and small pieces of food. DO NOT GO THERE.

    All staff were professional, helpful, and attentive of all guests dining. While the food menu is very specific the dishes offered are done well and the desserts were superb. The drinks were also crafted just as well as the food. It would be more enjoyable to have had a seat facing the windows to look at the view easier but the indoor ambiance is also very nice.

    The place is stunning! Very cute for a date night for drinks for a low key evening. Loved the DJ! Definitely played some tunes like Hip Hop and Reggae. Wasn’t expecting that music vibe and I’m glad music was everything. Our server was great! The hostess should definitely be switched. No warmth or just welcoming personality. I wouldn’t go back if the hostess was our server. Food was delicious! The caramelized onion sliders wow so yummy!

    Drinks, view, and the truffle fries were good. Our waitress, Emily, was awesome. The very weird parts - no toilet paper to be found in the bathroom in the lounge at the bottom floor and there was only paper towels in the rooftop bathroom with a sign to not flush any of it. The elevator was also not working until 5:05pm and we had to ask the doormen to call the restaurant to get it running. No bueno.

    Ophelia was the perfect Friday date spot for a nice spring day. The cocktails were beautiful, as well as tasty. We shared a couple appetizers that were tasty and were great for two people to share. The view was the highlight and cannot be missed!

    The views are hard to beat. The food was surprisingly delicious, and the cocktails definitely live up to the hype. Sort of a small seating area you’re dealing with (don’t expect a standard restaurant dining expert with regular tables and booths), but you’re not going there for that. You’re going for the vibe.

    I had reservations to celebrate a birthday and when I arrived the building maintenance person told me that Ophelia was closed due to broken pipes. This should never have happened and wouldn't if Open Table had stayed in closer touch with the restaurant and knew to contact us. Even an hour before the appointment I went into Open Table to alter the reservation increasing the people in my party and was allowed to without being told of the situation. I guess I need to use other reservation means in future.
