ROOF on theWit
We had an AMAZING time, the food and drinks were exceptional. The ambience was perfect we look forward to returning.
Good ambiance in the afternoon. Nice place for a drink and small appetizers. Very light and airy on a cold February day!
Very nice modern place to hang atound, have a drink and bite to eat, good for couples, group of friends, visiting people as you can see great views through the windows. Food variety could be a bit better, like simple mushroom flatbread, more appertizer choices and salads up to $15.
I didn't realize that when I made reservations, I would be eating my dinner on a love seat and low top table. Other than that, it was a very nice place. Perfect for drinks and appetizers. Unless you have a table, dinner is a bit uncomfortable.
This was the most unprofessional thing I've ever experienced. I made reservations for dinner during the restaurant week,and confirmed the day before. When I arrived for dinner, I was told that Roof was closed to the public and they wouldn't be seating me. When I asked why and to get more details, the hostess looked at her iPad and said "there's a note in here from the manager to contact you". No one has even bothered to call or email me! This was a complete waste of time and beyond unprofessional and inconsiderate to not let me know in advance. Hands down, just the worst!
I absolutely loved everything about Roof on the Wit
Great space and vibe. Shareable items exactly what we were after. Attentive service. A winner. We'll be back for sure.
The food choices were eclectic and very flavorful. Perfect fair for a pre-theater dinner with small plates. Our only complaint was our waitress disappeared when our food was delivered and we were hoping for description of what was what on the combo plates.
We had a 5 pm reservation so it wasn’t very crowded when we arrived. We were given a choice of seats - window, couch or booth. Our server was very attentive, even as it got busier. We took our time and no one hurried us. The decor is lovely, the food is delicious, the cocktails yummy!
Food was terrible. Everything felt like it was warmed in a microwave. Server asked for my credit card before I ordered, like I was doing bottle service with my kids. Staff was nice but young and inexperienced in that type of restaurant.
Was nice to see paella on the menu that wasn’t dominated by seafood, nice to see options! We inadvertently ate vegetarian even though my wife and I are not which was nice.
Service went above and beyond to accommodate for our nut allergy. Thank you so much for making us special.
Very nice atmosphere and great, super-friendly service and drinks and appetizer was good. Was hoping for a bit better view of the city, but tables by the windows were taken (even though we had made a reservation). Was winter and in the evening, so we couldn't go outside. Still we did enjoy some city lights which was our goal. A young man and woman were singing and performing soft rock. Fortunately, not sappy pop tunes. But it was a little loud for my tastes. Didn't know about the music.
The food and ambiance were great but the service was a bit hit and miss. Overall we enjoyed it but it was about 30-40 minutes before we could place our food order. I would go back though, mostly for the ambiance.
Very expensive for what you get. With that said, the wine was excellent tasting.
The place itself looked great. Food was delicious, however one of our dishes didn't come until significantly later than our others. My drink wasn't that great, barely tasted any alcohol. I would say the most disappointing part of the restaurant is that 15 minutes after we left I had a voicemail from the restaurant accusing us of not paying. When I called back they apologized and said that the waitress mixed up the bills or something of that nature. That is quite the accusation to be making without looking into the matter, especially when I am spending a lot of money at your restaurant.
We were seeing a show at the Chicago Theater. ROOF was super convenient - so for that I would recommend it. The drinks were small pours and the food was eh at best. The ambiance is nice, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.
Had a great time before the theater. Food was unique and very tasty!
The ambiance of this place was great. But the service, quality of food, value and selection was very poor. We wouldn't come here again.
Fun experience, fast service, make sure to book reservations
Dinner before a show
Service was hideous
Our waitress had a hard time hearing us. Our drinks came out very slow and she had to ask us multiple times what we ordered. If our server was better, we would have had a much better experience.
Good environment - food was decent. I liked the house cocktail selection.
Wine list is very poor - not many options and the first wine we picked was $65 the bottle for a Cabernet not good at all.
Beautiful view and a great atmosphere - great date night place!
Great experience. Customer service was great as well
$20 drinks and very minimal food selections. Atmosphere was great, but overall... not worth it.
Great view and service - it's a must do if you're in Chicago. The prices are high for their drinks and food but you're getting a great view and service so you get what you pay for.
We enjoyed happy hour & the cocktails
Meh. Service was blah. Food was small and unimpressive.
Todo estuvo muy bien, todos muy amables y el lugar es muy bonito
I asked ahead for a quietish table in a corner so my date and I could talk and share small plates. The staff accommodated that and we still had a nice view. Service was excellent and although we lingered they did not rush us at all. Beautiful room with a DJ on a platform but the music isn’t overwhelming, we had no trouble speaking. We shared the Shrimp A La Plancha & Croquettes and the Lobster and Black Rice Paella which was a generous portion. Both were excellent.
Only for drinks. It’s definitely more of a bar. The food was good but nothing that I would recommended someone to purposely go there for. The open air environment was refreshing.
Great location to have a drink between friends or dinner in the lounge section. There was live music when we went and the band was pretty good
We were only going fort the river view but that section was closed for no given reason so we had no view at all
Beautiful ambiance. Music was much to loud for the time and space, plus talent just wasn’t great. Sound system had horrible feedback.
Waitress was not particularly attentive. Never checked on us after food arrived and we had to flag her down for more drinks. Place was not super busy on a Wednesday night at 6pm.
Would take a lot to step up their game.
Always great service. Beautiful view. Music duo was nice touch. Drink special was delicious, Berry Moscow Mule. Highly recommend the vanilla strawberry crepe dessert.
wast to much of a club vibe than what i was looking for, not great ambiance for a nice dinner out.
Tasty food and interesting cocktails, but it was very loud even though we were there early before a concert, and the room was very cold.
