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.

Food was amazing, drinks were watered down. The waiter charged me for drinks that were already paid for at the bar. And i was charged for tap water. Experience wasn’t that great.

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.

When we went there it was so hot on the roof we couldn't really eat. It's a decent spot, but too trendy and unfriendly if its hot or cold, especially during the day. I'm sure it's fun at night if you live in Queens and are 21 year-old and independently wealthy. Otherwise, I've seen better views, had better food, and I've been to better rooftop bars and restaurants. A definite skip.

If you go, stop for drinks at twilight, check out the view, and save your money for dinner elsewhere. Good service, amazing view of the Queens bridge and Manhattan, but the food was bland, inaccurately described on the menu and overpriced. For example, our $28 "Thai Salmon" entree, was simply salted and griddled salmon on a bed of unseasoned forbidden rice with no complexity of flavor. The pineapple fried rice was also underwhelming and mostly tasted of the oil it was cooked in. The teriyaki vegetables were barely seasoned.
