The staff was not very attentive. Did not say/know much about the menu when I asked questions. The food was good, but most plates are pretty small.

Everything was good, except it was so HOT inside. I understand the doors are open, but we sat inside and there weren’t even any fans

I was very disappointed as a first time customer. I sat for over an hour waiting for a nacho (no meat which I was told would come faster) and cauliflower order while I watched others around me (who came after me) eat and finish their meals. When I questioned our wait time about 40 mins in I was given an apology from the kitchen, only to wait 30 more mins before our Waitress came back empty handed. The signature dry ice drink was good for pics but was all I got to experience. Very disappointing to say the least...Ended up at the coney next door scarfing down a hot dog.

We had a fantastic time! The place is amazing for a girls get together and or night out. The food and service was perfect and I will def be returning...keep in mind that they will not seat you until the entire party arrives...so if you have a friend that is often running behind, give them a heads up or earlier time lol

Had a great time at Pinky’s.. the cocktails and food are fairly priced. Definitely suggest the pork tenderloins and lettuce wraps— really good portions to share!

Made the reservation to celebrate my birthday and when the waitress first came to our table, she completely ignored that it was a special occasion. We then ordered drinks and we did not receive them for a half hour. The manager did come by to apologize and offer the first round. She said it was a computer glitch. This was never conveyed to us in the half hour we were waiting. The food was bland. The drinks were just ok. My last drink I ordered was completely forgotten. The waitress was very inattentive. She was even rude at times. I absolutely would not go back there or recommend this place. This was an awful experience.

Like all small plates restaurants, it’s a bit pricey for the food but it was good. Very cool drink specials. Severa tables around us got the cotton candy... pretty unique idea. Great place for a girls night out! Would love to come back and try the weekend brunch

The ambiance was perfect. Very pink yet chic, with a beautiful patio. We ordered a few tapas, drinks and dessert, however, it took about 30 minutes for each plate to come out, and about 20 minutes to get drinks. It was fairly busy for a Wednesday night, but was not expecting nachos (with hardly any cheese) to take an hour to arrive. The other tapas, scallops and short rib tacos were amazing. Would definitely go back to Pinky’s, but just not as hungry as I came, and make sure I have the time to wait.

Need to pump the air conditioning in the summer and find a solution for the patio. It was sweltering causing us to leave for somewhere with air. Food and drinks were great and I would come back when it’s a bit cooler.

Nice rooftop location with lots of greenery around. Smoking glasses of champagne, pink cotton candy sitting a top a model 'head' and lots of women made this a very energetic, fun place especially on a Monday night. Food was ok..a little heavy and processed but small plates to share so it works out

This was our second time there. We loved the first visit great food, great atmosphere, and everyone who was working stopped by to check on us. We sent several groups to this restaurant but was very disappointed with this visit. It was our wedding anniversary which I noted when I made the reservation. The waitress and manager were not accommodating when we complained about waiting so long when the restaurant was slow. The Manager however found time to send drinks to a table of young ladies who weren’t even ordering food. I will not go back!

The ambiance was very fun and beautifully decorated! The service, food and drinks were great. The only drawback was it was overpriced and portions are very small. For 3 people, with 3 appetizers and 6 drinks, it was over $100.

Tai was my waitress/server. She was amazing the day of my birthday! Greeted us and service my 11year old and 11 of my close friends! She did an amazing job! The food was really good! And her suggestions on drinks was perfect! My daughter even enjoyed her cute mocktail! The ambiance of the whole place is stunning! I was very impressed! The only thing my beauty school dropout (cotton candy head peice) was not as pretty or put together like the others I had seen that night or the pictures I’ve seen . Look a little rushed. It looked bad. My friends noticed it ! The last drink I ordered the sassy & classy - didn’t taste good at all too sour and salty. But I was having a such a good time i didn’t take the beauty school dropnout back. But the drink I left unfinished. I would come back! And remember when making reservations your ENTIRE party must be there before being seated ! However the waiting area is very appealing!

Over all Super cute restaurant! the decor was fabulous and the staff was nice. However The food menu was very limited, (specially for someone as myself trying to be mindful what I eat) it was a lot of sweet stuff available, which normally I LOVE but I’m trying to diet, so I had to sit there and watch my friends eat delicious looking food! WELP!!!!

The tables are very close together, we were sat near a large group and I couldn’t move my chair out to get up. We could hear their entire conversation! And we were seated outside and it was very hot and humid! So they not have air conditioning. Will next time ask to be seated inside. Food is very good however.

Better place to go for just drinks and appetizers before your real dinner somewhere else. The potstickers were misleading as they were actually fried dumplings and the nachos were a large portion but no different from nachos you could get from Taco Bell. The service was good, a little slow but expected since it was kind of busy. The resturaunt was super cute and fun though.
