I went to PHD to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The ambiance was very intimate and upscale. The only problem I had was that there were no entrees. The menu was appetizers and drinks which were very delicious yet very pricey. I’d rather spend that amount and get full. Other than that I would recommend this restaurant to if you want a low-key experience.

Really nice spot for a special occasion. Very impressive and creative signature cocktails. The food was ok but wasn’t enough to compensate for a night of drinking (unless you get the red velvet cake).

I would recommend because it’s a cute set up, but I wouldn’t return myself. You have to make a reservation to dine, but what makes absolutely no sense is your reservation will be canceled after a few minutes if you’re late. The roof top opens @ 5pm and we left standing in a line in the cold till about 5:15pm. They dropped the ball on the prompt front, only to be greeted by an aggressive & threatening bouncer. He argued with a guy because of him saying we’ve been standing out in the cold for a while now, then threatened he would slap the guy in front of all the guest waiting to enter the roof top. Not a good thing or a good look. Didn’t appreciate being greeted by that after waiting in the cold.

They sat us next to the loud bar, people were all over us, bumping and encroaching on our table. Was hard to enjoy our drinks. We were forced to retreat to the balcony which does indeed have a beautiful view. Cocktails were pretty mediocre, they used bottom shelf spirits in $20+ drinks.

Tiffany at the front door was amazing, she was friendly and available to help. Julien ensured that we were able to get a food order in before the kitchen closed, our seating was at 11, and a private event was there until 11, but the kitchen closed at 11, Tiffany and julien took our order at 10:45, and had it waiting at our table when we sat. Was an amazing experience. Our waitress dani was excellent all night too. Kept our water and drinks refilled. 10/10 experience, highly recommend ! Thank you for a great experience

For such an expensive experience it was very disappointing.

They were out of 3 of the specialty cocktails we came for.

The server was extremely slow to check in on us and deliver drinks. Her section was not busy enough for this type of service. At one point I looked around to see what the hold up was and noticed 11 people waiting for drinks/ no drink in their hand.

While we were enjoying our last drinks And waiting for our ridiculous bill. We were approached several time to be let known that they were closing and to leave. There was minimum three other groups there as well at this point . None of them were approached like this. We were literally just waiting to pay our bill. It made us very uncomfortable as to why it was just us being treated like this.

Overall just a very underwhelming experience with poor service and a lack of options available from
The menu

Would not go back or recommend to a friend.

On a Sunday at 7pm, it was the perfect amount of noise. The food was great and the service was great too! THE VIEW IS GORG and their flower wall gets updated every season. Deff worth the trip!

Worth the wait. The line may be a little irritating, but you get in within 15-20 min and then it is a quick process. The cocktails are very good and coming out fast. It is a little too dark, but it helps with the rooftop experience, as you see more of the buildings around you. Overall, I would recommend it!

I came here after seeing PHD featured in an article and was hoping that I'd get to see the holiday decorations. Unfortunately, the rooftop was booked out for an event that I wasn't aware of so I wasn't able to see the decorations. I'm bummed and wish I had known beforehand.

Got there for our reservation and was told they were no longer serving food. Was not clear from reservation booking on open table. Was also extremely loud/crowded/hectic/more of a club environment, which was not what i was expecting. The staff were nice.
