    Visit there was ok when it’s dark out you can’t see your food, food and drinks are pricy but not bad in taste. The music was super repetitive though they probably played the same songs over about 10 times. I thought the flower walkway was real but it’s not that grand in person also very narrow.

    Although seated quickly the table was still a but dirty as they tried to quickly clear out people without a reservation who were seated there prior to us, no one came to clean… Cocktails are extremely expensive for the quality… Under the Tuscan Sun is mostly tequila none of the other flavors and Wet Dream tasted like fruit juice Slow service, flower tunnel was dissapointing as 100% plastic and impossible to take a picture as influencer wanna be’s hoarded the space; we were pushed by two women while trying to take a picture as they fought for a spot to shoot content Overhyped and overpriced.

    Made a reservation...sat down and never saw a waitress. Never got water, never got checked on, they were just sporadically choosing who to serve I guess. The drinks were ok...the tuna poke was so so good but servers need training.

    Beautiful venue, good drinks, and good music. Service was a little slow but that’s to be expecting on a Saturday night! The music was a little slow when we got there around 10pm, but quickly turned to a good vibes of top 40, 2000s music and we had an amazing time.

    Beautiful venue, so pretty. Would be perfect for a first date. Expensive but that’s Manhattan so get over it. Server could’ve been a little more attentive, it was a Tuesday night after all, but all in all I will be bringing every girl I meet on hinge here from now on.

    The place would be perfect for a date night or to hang out with your friends for drinks. There’s not much food options but they all are nicely portioned and taste great. The drinks are strong and the price is decent. The waitress was so kind and even accommodated us for when we went to the rooftop and took a different staircase because of the rain.

    The drinks weren’t very nice but the food is gorgeous, be aware they’re only small bites. The vibe was a bit unwelcoming but the servers were nice. Disappointed with our table, some seats are inside and with no good view, not really the best especially for a 21st celebration.

    The food was great, the view and ambiance was great, the service was great, but the music was blah. It’s such a popular terrace and has such good capabilities to be just as good as the lounge but they dropped the ball on playing a horrible playlist of music no one can even catch a vibe to.

    Made a reservation for my birthday for a group of 11 women. They sent an email confirming I would have seating for everyone since everyone would be in heels. I was very happy and thought this was amazing service. Showed up for my appointment to seating for 4 and two stools on side and everyone else would be standing. We were also seated in the middle of the floor. I showed the hostess who said she had no idea who the person was that I received the email from and also that she was just the hostess and couldn’t do anything for me, but would get a manager over. He came over and had the same attitude and even mentioned to me that everyone would be dancing anyway why did I need seats. The music as horrible so there was definitely not a single place in that place dancing. I had a different hostess come over after named Solange who not only seated us elsewhere to accommodate my party of 11, but was the absolute best the entire night!! She is the only reason I had a good time there. Food was amazing & decor for pics lovely. Drinks to me were overpriced. They did offer to cut my cake for me at no charge that I brought in. However, I doubt I would dine there again.
