    Had an amazing dinner lastnight! Perfect nyc posh ambience I was hoping for during our stay. The music, the service, the view, and the French onion sliders was enough to say, "I will absolutely be back next trip to nyc!"

    The tables are extremely small. Sofa seating with backs to the interior so you do not see the Manhattan panoramas. They say business casual but people are in shorts and t shirts. The noise level is very high and the food is just okay.

    Stunning views and space, in a building with a stories history. Went there on a Sat night, so there was a deejay, and it was very loud. Servers were virtually absent. Glad we got a first round of water and orders in, because they didn’t return until they started clearing the table (before we actually had finished some of the food), to start clearing out the place, and close up. So, go for the marvelous space—just don’t expect anything else to be that marvelous.

    This is a prime location with magnificent views. It has a great, energetic vibe and a beautiful interior. I was visiting from out of town and a friend recommended we go here for a meal. Booking was very easy and they were able to seat us right after our arrival. It took a little while before someone came to take our order. While waiting, we noticed our menu was missing the cocktail selections/mixed drinks page so my friend asked the hostess for a new menu book that contained the cocktail listings. The hostess never brought it. When our server arrived at our table, we let her know we had an incomplete menu and she brought us a new one right away. Our server was very nice and attentive. We very much enjoyed the cocktails we ordered as well as the burrata and heirloom tomatoes and the prawn tacos- all were excellent and tasty. We also ordered the sea bass skewers but the sauce on the fish was highly salted and for some reason, the fish taste was a little strong so we had to send it back. Instead, we ordered the cauliflower steak, which was a suitable substitute. As we were leaving, we were by the elevator when the hostess walked up with another patron. The elevator doors opened and the hostess stepped in along with her companion. I then stepped in but my friend was trailing as she was taking a picture of the view. When my friend came up to the elevator door, it started to close and the hostess did nothing to reopen the doors, even as she was standing by the elevator controls. My friend jumped in to make the elevator and the door ended up hitting her, and the hostess did not even apologise, she just kept talking to the person she was with. So, not too happy with the overall experience with the hostess but the restaurant experience was pretty enjoyable.

    Very expensive. The lobster rolls were really small. But everything else was delicious. Cocktails were awesome but a bit on the sweet side. Servers were very attentive. Very loud. It’s a bar. Not a place for kids.

    It was my birthday, me and my sister went to have a cocktail before dinner. I made reservations weeks ago. We went for the view and we’re sat at a table against the wall opposite of the window. We wanted to sit outside but there was a private event. If that was the case, I would have like to be notified so I could have made other arrangements. We stayed for 15 minutes, had okay drinks and ended up leaving. Extremely disappointed

    Have visited Ophelia a few times and each time have noticed that the furniture could use some replacing. Some areas of the couches are worn or discolored, taking away from the ambience of the venue.

    It's the best kept secret in NYC! It was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our wedding anniversary - a venue that had a nice ambiance, a scenic view of the city 26 stories above and a grazing food menu that was prepared beautifully & with such great taste. Portioned as bite sizes to enjoy with sips of bubbly in between.

    We showed up on time but they were late to get everyone up causing a crowd in the lobby bc there was an event that was getting out late. When we finally got up, they put our reservation inside with no air flow and no one helped us for 20 minutes so we left. A little run down.

    We live nearby and come here often. We reserved a 3 top, to show our guest the views, and requested an outdoor table. The host was rude when I reminded her of my request for an outdoor table. Was placed in an awkward corner table, no view, where people constantly hit me from behind. It took 30 minutes for the server to bring 3 martinis. Disappointing experience.

    Super busy, which makes for really slow service. Staff was totally lovely, just not available. It's pricy for what it is. I had requested a great table with a view for my husband's bday on my res, and we got table facing a brick wall, lol. The whole reason I booked there was for a view. We were undecided if we'd have dinner there, but once we sat we weren't inclined to hang around past a drink.
