They gave us a table inside (covered patio), furniture was a bit worn out. Place was a bit smelly, despite opening. Main course food is appetizers size. drinks and service was OK. If you go, just request a table on the patio facing Broadway street.

Had a great time here for my bday, wish they had more food options but overall super cute place with lots of different places to take cool pictures and has great views. Great for big groups, staff were super accommodating!

We truly enjoyed this place. The attention and security aspects were OUTSTANDING!! Service amazing ! This is a unique fun place to go. Great environment , beautiful
View from the roof of Broadway Times Square ! The food options are more like tapas rather than formal dinner but they were all great options. We had Sliders and Corn Balls and avocado toast and all were great! Super fast service , incredible attention and super fun environment and of course the impressive Mary gold wall!!

The ambiance was amazing but the service was not good. The servers didn’t come to take my order for about 15 mins. I had to keep calling over the server to ask for napkins, drinks etc .

The only good things about this place are their drinks and ambience.

The service was very poor and the women’s bathroom was not clean and very small for a place that’s supposed to be hard to get into.

The place itself is gorgeous and all of the staff is super nice. However the prices for the food is a little bit over the top. I expected pricey menu items because of the location but $15 for 4 one inch Mac and cheese balls is insane.

I did enjoy the drinks and they were really pretty.

Cocktails were good but music was not great. Too loud and pop, rap music. Also the area where were seated doesn’t have the best view that I’s advertiste or the best pics on social media . The Empire State view in in the VIP area where with a regular reservation you don’t get access. We left after one cocktail and no worth to go again:

Great place for after work drinks or a date. It is very Instagrammable, so if you're bothered by ladies taking selfies, you should go off-peak. Service and managers were great. Drinks were kind of expensive but in NYC, when is that not the case?

Nos trataron muy mal no se si fue el hecho de que éramos 4 mujeres y hispanas, Nos trataron mal, ni nos dieron ningún tipo de servicio solo nos sentaron en una mesa en un rincón obscuro y nunca llegó nadie a ofrecernos nada. A si que decidimos irnos

It was mediocre because we were given a corner table near the bussing station and “inside” so we didn’t have a direct view and it seems like we were just put in a random corner. Our drinks were great although mine had too many pieces of actual ginger in it and i was picking them out of my mouth lol. our food was decent but i would recommend eating a full meal before coming here, food money can be better spent elsewhere! Come for the vibe and (very instagramable) ambience but not the food! very pretty and decent views.

It was nice. The sunflower tunnel looked beautiful but super crowded. I had an unfortunate experience with an employee in the ladies room and that killed the vibes there for us so we left. I would still come back but for lunch or brunch to enjoy the views.

Lol they really have to do better with the staff. They just aren’t friendly and they act like you should feel proveliged to be at there establishment. But If you get past that it’s beautiful with good drinks and the food is so good (small plates but definitely nothing that they just popped in the microwave)

Don’t go here. Me and my husband went here for our anniversary because wanted a rooftop experience. The view was nice but the service was horrible. The waitress brought us out hot water with two ice cubes on top of that it was hot outside plus the food was spicy. Our mouths was hot from the spices we had to track down a different waiter to get refills because our server never returned to check on us until we were finish eating. 😳😏 They only have appetizers o real lunch or dinner items. Plus the food and drinks are overpriced. I would not recommend

Absolutely loved my experience at PHD Terrace! The ambiance was so lively and fun and the decor looked just as cute as the pictures on IG. Every corner was a photo op. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The drinks and food came in good time. I enjoyed the pitcher of the cocktail “Wet Dream” and the Kale Artichoke Dip with pita bread and Filet Mignon Skewers. I just wish that it was a full sized meal instead of small bites since it’s so good. Also the prices are pretty steep but that is the usual with NY. Overall great time and place to chat with friends and have drinks!

Viviane and Stanley were great - attentive, quick, and helpful. We had a larger group than our original reservation but we were in a great spot so it wasn't an issue. The food was delicious, the drinks were cold and flowing - all around a great experience! Will recommend, especially those looking for a venue to accommodate large groups.

The cocktails were standard - just a little heavy handed with the simple syrup. For the pricing, the light bites were not up to code. Stay away from the over done greasy sliders.
