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.

The sushi was amazing. The waiter and the service he provided was simply poor. If a tip wasn’t included, I would have never left a tip. The music was too loud that you couldn’t have a conversation.

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

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.
