We went on a Saturday night with three of my girl friends. The crowd is definitely a mix. The views are great. The food is very good, but the drink I ordered sucked. I ordered their pacific sangria and I only had a quarter of a glass because it was filled mostly with ice and the little bit of sangria that was there was not good. My friend ordered strawberry mojito and hers was ok. Overall a nice place and I would go back there again.

The service was great, view was great of NYC, the food was delicious. My disappointment was how small the dishes were for both appetizers and the main dish. Me and my wife had in total 3 appetizers, 2 main dishes and a total of four cocktails, no desert. The bill came to $190 with tip automatically included. I found that to be very expensive and we left hungry.

Worst service I've had in a very long time. It too our waitress a very long time to come to the table to start. We asked her if we could switch tables to one that opened up right on the edge to get a better view. She said yes. A few minutes after we moved the hostess came over and made us switch back and lectured us like we had moved without permission. The waitress should have checked with the hostess if it is standard for certain tables to be reserved. Dont make your guests feel like they stole something. We had to ask for plates and sppons to share our second course. Many basic things that a good waiter would notice we needed to ask for instead of being offered.

The view was amazing. Food was fine, but not fantastic. Definitely a place banking off of the view and amiance instead of service and quality.

Penthouse 808 was really nice, somewhat off the beaten path, but well worth it. The food was excellent and the drinks were spot on. The price was rather high though, maybe a bit much for that spot. I would recommend this place to friends and even go back. It’s a great spot to see the city especially at night.

Way overpriced food and cocktails and the sushi rolls where a disappointment. The other food we had was good and the waitress was awesome.
The music when we arrived totally fit the style place with being lounge chill club type music. The band when we were leaving totally did NOT for the place as it was 1940’s style and they looked the part. Not sure would go back

Service horrible, hot inside with no working A/C, Waiters with sweating cloth and running faces- disgusting. Eating our meal in a sauna like place. Beer was served warm in a bottle with no glass( apparently they don't have chilled glasses). Finally food was served, all together, appetizer & main course and still no glas to have a sip of beer on this humid hot day and no A/C ! Then you get a sip of you beer and it's warm! hello! what are you doing there?

Overpriced Asian food, staff was VERY rude took our plates before we were done eating & tried to rush us so they can clear the floor I guess for the club part?? STOP taking reservations so late if there’s not enough time to eat & enjoy the overpriced dinner you’re serving! Great views but management sucks! Go where you will be appreciated for spending your $.

Ambiance and scenery are outstanding. Can get noisy with music playing, but the vibe is pleasant and the decor is worth it. Food was tasty and the service was good.

Gentlemen are not allowed to wear hats, which was confusing as it's a rooftop and it outdoor seating, but nothing having a nice hair cut won't fix.

Will definitely return on a summer night.

The service was lacking. We went when it just opened at 5 so no excuse. When the sun goes down is the best time to go b/c they open the roof and there is a breeze. Before that it is too hot and stuff. Happy hour drinks are at all seating but the food is not which I don’t really understand. The sushi was good, but not worth the price. All in all would only go back for the view.

The food was pretty good but the service was terrible. They were out of a ton of things, they didn’t accommodate food allergies well at all, and it took forever to get drinks. They have some kinks to work out but if you have food allergies/sensitivity’s, I wouldn’t recommend coming here.

Went here and the food was fantastic only thing is, is that the service was very poor. The waitress never acknowledged us unless we asked them first. On the receipt they charged us for a $28.00 "gratuity", we asked the manager about it and he said "There is nothing I can do it's a Groupon I can't change it." When we questioned him, he said it was in the fine print which it was not. He then tried to guilt trip us by saying, " This is how my waiters make their money. You don't want to tip my waiters." He then said he would make the gratuity $15.00 and that's as low as he could go, but when we got the receipt the gratuity was $18.00. Which at that point we gave up, payed and left.

I have to commend the staff at Penthouse 808, they contacted about my 3pm brunch reservation that wasn’t available and it had me somewhat skeptical about the restaurant being it was my first time there. But they accommodated my party and I couldn’t have asked for a better wait staff. They were amazing! It started with Bria the hostess who made sure we had a table. Our food was perfect, wait staff attentive and drinks were on point! Thank you Penthouse 808 for a wonderful birthday dinner.

I went on Sunday for Brunch at 2:30pm (last sitting) first time for brunch and it was dead. I have been there at night and its fun but the ambiance for Brunch disappointed me.
They had a live band which it was nice but the music from the wedding upstairs was way better.
The food was good, the drinks also good. Service was a little slow because it looks like they were getting ready for Dinner but that was not a problem for us.
The view is very nice that is why i was expecting a fun brunch.
Unfortunately I will not be back for Brunch.
