Beautiful spot for drinks. Many areas for photo ops. Be prepared to wait for tunnel pics. We didn’t eat. Drinks were good. Music was excellent. Will come back.

Nice bar, great music, great drinks. The ONLY thing was a large party came in and took over the spot I reserved. We were asked to move down for “our comfort”. The party without the reservation should have been told to respect our space and to move down, not me. Other than that, it was fine. I would go back again. I’d give it another chance. Only because our waitress was awesome.

PHD Terrace is a great drinks and small plates meeting spot with iconic views, ideal for a first date. The problem is it’s trying to also be a dance club. The music is too loud and unrelenting to hear each other or your server. The food is yummy - love those lettuce wraps! Their creative cocktail list is intiguing, supplemented with enough wines and beers to have something up your alley. Now that we can get together and talk face to face again, can we please lose that misguided idea that noisy bars and restaurants are somehow cooler or hotter or hipper, or anything besides louder?

My date & I had a really great time here, honestly even better than expected. The sunflower installation was gorgeous. The small plates and cocktails were delicious and the staff was super friendly & helpful. I will definitely come back for another great evening! I just wish they had a better communication system as it’s incredibly hard to contact the venue. I wish they would have answered my emails/ voicemail prior to my reservation.

Not pleased. Had reservations for 6pm and got seated at a table near the entrance staring at a wall. The window to our back had a poor view even if we bothered to twist ourselves into a pretzel to look out of it. No need to come to a place like this and pay high prices just to be sat in a place with no view. There were plenty of open tables not being used but with “reserved” signs. Those tables were positioned with much better views. We stayed for over an hour with cocktails and appetizers. Not any of those empty tables with better views ever became occupied. Why didn’t we get seated there? Feeling ripped off, especially since there are other establishments with equally good or even better views — and better food. The food here was not good, which made the high prices even more frustrating. Our waitress was good, but she never came back to check on us. We had to ask the busboy to get our check.

Really enjoyed this visit. Brandon at the door and Kelly inside were amazing. Drinks are stellar and the filet mignon skewers are to die for. Can't wait to return and bring lots of friends along! Perfect spot for a night out in midtown.

While the bar is definitely fun and the food is pretty yummy, I don’t think either accomplishment is worth the price. They serve your $19 cocktails in plastic cups, the floorboards aren’t attached to the floor (???), and it’s so loud in there. The wait staff is very kind though—just wish someone would at least make sure the floor doesn’t move when you walk on it.

Such a nice night! Low key with great views and the food and drinks were really good. Especially recommend the pizza bianca and the kale artichoke dip with pita chips that we shared, and the wild berry specialty cocktail. I could see getting very drunk on the wild berry specialty cocktail because it was so delicious! I would definitely recommend this place as a really nice rooftop experience.

This is all about the great view and you’ll pay for it. Reservation with CC was required. When we arrived the hostess wanted to sit us inside by the hostess stand. We walked back through the flower tunnel to a completely open bar and elevated patio with no one there. $250 for two rounds of drinks for 4 of us. I see now why this place was completely open for reservations when every other rooftop
Bar in Manhattan was full…

This is my third time here and I love it!! Been here for a few birthdays and just a good time. The drinks were amazing. The food was a little expensive— the wagyu sliders were amazing and the pretzel bites are too. The pizza Bianca was not a fit because the goat cheese had a weird after taste. Good pictures! Recommend going for sunset!

Waitress looked annoyed and when she gave me our check she explained how to pay using the QR code but I didn’t hear everything so I said excuse me and she just said forget it and walked away. Food & drinks were good though. Crowd was odd and music was fine for a lounge.
