Was such a great experience until they turned on the lights in the room adjacent to the main area with the tables. (They were having an event there) The light was blinding and ruined the ambiance on the side where people were eating. It ruined my dates mood but besides that, it was a very cute place.

Booked a table for our anniversary, took a taxi to the restaurant (because it‘s too far to walk from Manhattan). Took the elevator to the restaurant and no one was there. A nice employee of the hotel told us then that the restaurant was closed on this Friday but no one sent us a message. We were really upset about paying for a taxi and then standing in front of nothing. Worst service ever of not informing us about the spontaneous closing on this day.

Was there for 55 minutes with no appetizers that we ordered, only water. The heat from vent blowing hard on the middle tables. Then it was cold, they couldn’t get the temperature right. We finally got a hold of our waiter and all he said was the kitchen is backed up and he doesn’t know what to tell us. We left and never received any food. He also redeemed our groupon and we never ate. Will not be going back!

everything I ordered the server returned back to the table to tell me that the kitchen said it was cooked in some that could affect my allergies. I included a note about my food allergies when I made my reservation three weeks ago. After the server returned back several times to tell me what I ordered wasn’t possible, I gave up.

Quite disappointed to find out that it’s in the 6th floor and nit readjust a rooftop. It killed the vibe. That’s what people are paying for.
Our sever is very good but the bar is kinda slow. We ordered a beer and it took 29 minutes to get it. How slow can it get?
The food is ok but the roll was very good.
Overall. It’s ok. Not what it used to few years back. It used to be awesome

Penthouse 808 was a great place with an amazing view. Share my 1 year anniversary with them and had a great time. I ordered the passion fruit tea which was great. Food wise we had miso soup, edamame and the sushi platter which had multiple different arrangements of sushi. Overall great food and great staff.

Booked a table 6 weeks before I came to NY, got a mail the day before with the question if I was still coming.
When I called to tell them I was running a bit late, the reception told me the restaurant was closed???!

Over priced. A ball of plain fried noodle was $23. Crazy. the floor was hard to get up and get down (the elevator was broken when we wanted to get up and when getting down service elevator came first which we were told not to get in). The sign of the restaurant was very hard to find both from the street and inside the building. I am advertising everybody never go to the restaurant and

The security is very rude, for no reason. The crown is very young and immature. It was not what I expected. The only great thing about this place is the view. Other than the view expect tasteless food, rude staff, and crappy music, also rowdy young crowd.

Went with friends.. so loud you couldn’t hear what anyone was saying. Awesome view and very nice looking. Sushi was mediocre at best. Waitress condescending.. when sushi rolls were brought out they were not identified and just placed on table and they left. Had to wait about 10 minutes for someone to come and identify what they were. Pitchers of drinks very expensive and tastes like no liquor was in it- just juice. When we told waitress for our next pitcher ordered it came the same way with no liquor. The view is what you would come here for and that’s really it...

This is my third or fourth time coming to this venue and the food is always amazing. The service is great too. Only thing that I would say needs improvement is the way the reservations are handled. If one has a reservation for a certain time, they shouldn’t have to wait and additional 15mins + to be seated (second time this has happened). It’s an inconvenience for people who have other arrangements after lunch/dinner.

Having my birthday dinner at Penthouse 808 was a well thought out decision and I do not regret any aspect of the reservation. From the ambiance, NYC skyline to the Angry Lobster that I had it all deserves 5 stars. Carlos was great, hospitality wise and he was prompt. I will be returning and recommended all I know!

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
