Great menu - could have made 5-6 other choices that would have been great as well. Loved the pork chop and sides. Service was impeccable. Views were amazing.

I chose this restaurant for the view, and requested a table with one in my OpenTable reservation. Upon arriving my husband and I were disappointed to be sitting in a bench 2-top facing the bar. When I asked the hostess about view tables she explained they require an additional deposit which can only be submitted through their website or by phone. So, I would definitely recommend making your reservation with the restaurant directly.

We had a great experience, almost cancelled after reading some of the brutal reviews. Food, drinks, service and the view were all perfect. Not sure what happened during vday weekend to spark the ire of so many bad OT reviews, but this was a beautiful restaurant and the food was wonderful.

The food was absolutely amazing! The whole over all experience was so breathtaking! We will definitely be returning for dinner soon! Next time we will get a window booth so enjoy the view better, but we were still close enough to enjoy it.

We need to pay 170 dollars as a deposit after making a reservation. And the menu in the Valentine’s Day is 85 dollars per person. Our deposit is enough to cover it, we still need to pay 20% tip for guarantee, even though he never wipe my wet table which is caused by him. And extra 70 dollars after dinner for “ special Valentine’s Day” menu. The food is poor and worse than the normal menu, the environment is noisy and crowded, most of time the people are laughing. The 240 dollars I can choose prime rib for a much more better experience. I’ll never come again.

We came for Valentine’s Day and leading up to the evening we had heard nothing but good things so we were obviously excited. The restaurant was beautiful and the view was incredible. We were seated the second we got to the hostess. Both myself and my girlfriend each ordered two different things on the already limited menu and were told that the restaurant had run out of those items. Having paid for this dinner Over a month ago it was very disappointing to be told we could not get multiple things on a menu that was specific for Valentine’s Day. It is a beautiful restaurant and we still had an amazing night. But I would not spend that kind of money to spend a special night at R2L again

Our evening was to celebrate not only Valentine’s Day, but our 16th anniversary as well. We were greeted immediately and congratulated on our special day. Upon making it to the top of the building, our wait was less than 3 minutes and that was on a holiday Friday night at peak dining time. The service was fantastic with our waitress making great talk and fantastic food suggestions. The meal was delicious and the views were great as well. Overall this was a Tom class experience.

This was our first time going we went on Valentine's day the food was cold. For the amount of money we spent I was hoping the food would be hot and good unfortunately this was not the case. I am very disappointed and was hoping for an awesome experience.

The food was really good and the service was great. For a nice romantic night reserve a table by the window. That requires a deposit so do not wait until the last minute to book reservations. Opentable app is ok but when they open at 4pm call to make sure you dont over look anything. As soon as you walk in the lobby of the liberty place to your right is checkin and a coat check. Once your upstairs the view is a really nice touch. Its deem lite and the temperature in side is perfect. The salmon, steak, jumbo shrimp and lobster mac and cheese are all good choices. Warm yellow cake and ice cream is the best dessert on the menu.

Went for our one year anniversary that is close to Valentine’s Day and had great food and service. The filet was cooked perfectly, the Mac and cheese was one of the best ever, and the server, Brian, was even better. Couldn’t have had better service. Including the personal touch they used on our dessert that we shared. Overall an outstanding anniversary night out.

Our server Timothy was fantastic! My steak was over cooked and the taste was mediocre. The reduction it was served with was too overbearing. I also ordered an old fashioned, which was not made very well - too much bitters. Overall the food/drinks were not worth the price, but the service and view were great!

It was very romantic. Dim lighting and no loud conversations. The view was amazing and we could see the city from our seat. I didn’t know we would get a complimentary toast and cake with our dinner occasion so that was a giant plus! Food was good and the presentation was awesome! And the waiter will explain the menu for you as well. We loved it. We’ll be back for happy hour.

When we arrived the service was good. Once the server got additional tables our service was lacking tremendously. When she brought the dessert menus it took her almost 25 minutes before she came back to see if we wanted anything. The food was good however the portions are very small. The background music in the restaurant was extremely loud. I felt that it should be lower and perhaps a different kind of music for that type of restaurant The view and the ambience is incredible. This was my third time there and I definitely would go back again.

We went to R2L for my husband’s birthday. It’s been ages since we have gone to an American fine dining concept but let me tell you we have clearly been missing out! The food, service, and environment made it an evening we have been raving about since. Our favorite menu item? Two words: Vanilla Cake!

Thank you to the staff for making this a dinner to remember!

Excellent food. Only complaint was it was too dark. The light above our table was broken. We couldn’t even see our food. Even our waitress commented on how dark it was.
The food was excellent, I only wish I could see it.
