This is probably a location I would go when its warm out. The views are amazing, at night and it brings great ambiance. I came during valentines day weekend. I had the pre fix menu option. The portions were very small and not up to par for my liking, and I am a foodie. The drinks were okay, but nothing to die for. We were indoors but the draft from outside was so much so I was practically shivering most of the time. Service was great, my waiter always checked in.

Overall very good if you know what you’re getting into. These days you’re not actually at the Penthouse, but a Mediterranean restaurant on the third floor by the outdoor pool. Music is VERY loud (which we were fine with); definitely a party atmosphere. Service was good. Food was solid. Everything is overpriced. 20% Tip is included in the check and they charge a “resort fee” of 7% which is a little ridiculous. But overall a good experience.

I thought that the Penthouse was a rooftop but there’s no view. When we arrived there was happening like a pool party (a lot of people with beach clothes and the music was super high). The food and the drinks were expensive as well.

They took us to another spot... I believe called the perfundo because this was NOT The Penthouse 808 which I typically go to.

Too many people, no one social distancing, and it was a day-time rooftop party with drunk people yelling at top of their lungs with the loudest music.

This feedback is for Perfundo... the 3rd floor place... not Penthouse 808 and OpenTables should reflect that.. and make it clear that it was a rooftop party place. Terrible experience there.

Service was horrible and honestly disrespectful. I made reservations for my child, I kindly asked the waiter if we can move to a table not so close to the kitchen doors. The mood of the restaurant is dim light and relaxing. Not only was the bright kitchen lights on us but we could literally smell every dish that came out. After I asked the waiter he said he couldn’t move us. I left to meet my husband and the waiter approached the table and literally made fun of how I asked about the kitchen. He said “where is the lady? Was the kitchen too close for her so she left” that comment was uncalled for and unprofessional!

Hello Dianna, I would like to apologize to you on behalf of The Penthouse. I hope you can consider dining with us again as that Waiters behavior doesn’t represent our establishment, and we have taken disciplinary action. We strive to provide each and every one of our guest with a wonderful dining experience. We would love to invite you back and offer your husband and yourself a complimentary cocktail as a token of appreciation. -Izabela

You need help in the prices of the food, which was not really good at all. Love the New look but you need to add more stuff to the menu, the Menu on your website had way more options and when you get there, Half the menu is cut off.

Fabulous Valentine’s Day ambiance! Candlelight, skyline view and smooth romantic jams by the DJ set the tone of a very romantic evening. It was a prefixed menu which doesn’t work for my vegan lifestyle however the manager Isabella called me personally to say the chef would design a fully vegan meal just for me. It was delicious beginning to end. Vegan ceviche with a spicy kick of Jalapeño sweet potato sushi and a very tasty vegan risotto. There was a chilly breeze that made several guests get the coat from the coat check but other that’ll end that it was beautifully done.

What was supposed to be a delightful Valentine’s Day dinner with my fiancé, ended up being a two hour meal in an ice igloo. This establishment really should not host dinners at their rooftop location when outside temperatures are below freezing. We literally had to uncheck our coats downstairs and sit at our table bundled up while having our four course meal, which took about twenty minutes at a time to be served....Not to mention our waiter, who seemed rather discombobulated, seemingly forgot about our cocktails. We received them mid-meal after we decided we just wanted to get the hell out of that freezing place. We even noticed couples sitting close by having the same experience as us. For the price, I wish I had made a better choice for V Day! Never again!

The ambiance was good set for a romantic dinner great view. Did not wait long to be seated. Unfortunately the section we sat in was very very cold, making the stay unpleasant and unbearable. The food would get cold so fast. The waiter was not the best, we had to wait a long time between drinks and service. Making it not the best experience we have had at penthouse 808.

We have been here before but the Valentines price fix was our worst experience here.
The food was okay, nothing to Write home about. The appetizer of “scallops” was a plate with ONE overcooked and chewy scallop. Next, the salad came, and it tasted incredibly salty. Both mine and my husbands were inedible.
Main courses were good, and dessert was fine
But the service. Wow. It has never been so bad.
It took over 25 minutes when we ordered our first drink. Our waitress did not check on us once during the meal. The runners dropped off the food and we didn’t see her during the meal. But we did see her checking on other tables. We ordered a second round of drinks during our meals, and another half hour passed, that we ended up having to get up to find the waitress to cancel the drinks and just bring us our check.

1. $15.00 for valet parking, not including tip was a terrible start.
2. Mandatory coat check was a huge negative, especially after what came next.
3. Hostess was polite, but told us that because we arrived late, due to traffic, there might not be a table for us, even though it was already paid for. Luckily, she found a table for us. 4. The dining room was freezing...not enough heaters to make it comfortable.
(Why was there a mandatory coat check in a
freezing restaurant?)
5. The food was just ok, but the portions were a joke.
6. My date politely asked for an appetizer substitution, but was met with a very stern “No, we don’t do substitutions for pre-fix dinners.” It’s understandable, but it doesn’t cost anything to be polite about it. Also, please note that going the extra mile to make the customer happy in a service industry, will reflect on the tip at the end of the night.
7. Finally, the check came. I noticed they had already included a 20% tip with the option to tip additionally. Is that a joke??? How do you justify that with such poor service, and an uncomfortably cold temperature in the room? Needless to say, I did NOT feel compelled to tip additionally.

In short, I would never in a million years recommend this place to anyone I cared about. Management needs to take a close look at all the negatives, and fix them. This is definitely not just the staff’s fault. The fish stinks from the head down.

For such an expensive meal... you would think it would actually taste good. Came for the valentines dinner; the whole place was freezing. Went to request for a change of tables and they attended us pretty quickly. The staff looked all out of whack and confused. Noticed they kept bringing wrong orders to different tables. As for food quality it was decent; the seared scallops came in a small portion but tasted too fishy, the Salad was pretty fresh, I had the roasted chicken and although the chicken was good I would say the plantains was the best part of the meal; so hot and moist! Lol. I also had a 1.5 lb lobster and that was fresh as well. That chocolate soufflé though... terrible. It was for me and my date to share and it was no bigger than a rock. Not only that it was also cold and wet like a napkin stuck in a hot shower. I looked at prior reviews and I’m usually not one to judge a book by its cover but please if you read this don’t make the same mistake as me. I don’t care what chef they claim they have. Safe to say, more than likely I will never be coming back ever again.

It took us 1.5 hours in between each course to get our food. The food was bland and tasteless, and our 6:15pm reservation got us out of there at 10. TERRIBLE. I asked to be seated near a window, was told "no sorry, those are reserved" and later saw other couples being moved there after asking, and then moved again to different tables. The only thing we were offered after our meals being screwed up 4 times were glasses of champagne on the house. The entire establishment is horrendous, the food was not worth the price, not to mention the roooftop heating situation was extremely poor. Do not run a Valentines Day special if you have absolutely no qualified individuals running it. Our waitress, hostess, and seemingly the managers had no clue what they were doing the whole night, the busboys were acting as waiters, and we could not wait to get out of there after paying our check. Even after being offered our 'complimentary champagne' we had to wait 45 minutes to get it. We HADN'T EVEN GOTTEN OUR SALAD AFTER 1.5 HOURS AT THE RESTAURANT. Someone legitimately tried to give us dessert before we had been served our salad and entree. I'm warning you - no matter how gorgeous the views, the service is the worst I've ever experienced in NYC.

Great food and service! Loved the view. Only problem was that they seated us against the window and it was freezing. There was a hole at the bottom which just let the cold air in so we had a hypothermic Valentine’s Day.
