    Overall our server was excellent she provided exceptional service and was very patient with us when we were making our decision. We did have a hiccup where we were waiting for one roll of sushi for over 45 minutes but outside of that it was excellent. The ambiance itself was very nice, a little chilly but the weather was also cold that night. I would come in again. Hopefully the server has more help me time around as she was swamped handling a good chunk of the service

    Food had no flavor. Too noisy. Not ideal if you want to have a conversation with people at the table. Poor service. Outdoor seating had tables not conducive for dining. No great views of the city. Not worth it

    Terrible service. Waitress never came to the table for at least 45 minutes and kept forgetting our drinks and food orders. Made a reservation expecting a table outside and got neither of those. Very small portion of room is actually outside like being on a roof. Group of 9 squeezed onto two couches with only 4 tiny end tables that couldn’t fit our food and drinks. Was told we at least had the whole middle section of seating for our group but they started seating other people on one side. Didn’t have drinks on the menu we wanted. Food came out late after others had already finished theirs. Way over priced. Small menu and they expect you to order a “minimum” which is your total prepayment for the reservation and if you don’t you do not get your money back which is not thoroughly explained online. Would not recommend and will never go back. Not worth your time and money.

    The vibe of this rooftop was great - great scenery and setup. However, the service and food were poor. I requested my eggs (we had brunch) to be fried, extra hard and when received was over easy, very runny. I sent it back and they returned with the same eggs. Sent it back again and they returned with the same - so I just didn't eat the eggs. We had a party of four, two of the entrees came out and the other two came out around 15 minutes later - one which was the lox plate (nothing cooked). The burrito was to be without avocado; however, when received, full of avocado. The server took off the egg entree but put a different entree from the other table on our ticket. There was a group of around 10 guys who were ordering drinks that arrived after us and more attention was given to them. I had to get up to get the Server to fix the ticket. An internal survey was sent for me to complete which I completed and received an email indicating they would review and provide a response; however, never received a response.

    Ordered brut off the sparkling menu and not in stock. I had to go 3 deep to get something they actually had. Not a deal breaker but why have it on the menu if you don't keep it in stock? Pizza was very good. I loved the music (sort of eclectic R&B.. basically the originals to all the familiar rap samples).

    The staff at the rooftop were so kind and great! But it was definitely a bummer that we paid so much money for a reservation and had to wait a really long time to place an order at first. Just wonder if this place is understaffed or something. The music was awesome. Ambiance was great. Again the service was great, it was just super delayed at first which impacted our time for like an hour and a half since we didn’t have any drinks yet.

    I was required to pay $30 to make a reservation to receive the worst service I’ve ever received at a restaurant. DO NOT WASTE YOUT TIME OR YOUR MONEY. I had to get up to get napkins, silverware after our meal arrived. We were never offered more drinks. We even had to find our server to pay our check. After eating we wanted to go down to our room to store our food in the fridge. We were told we couldn’t go to our room and come back so I had to throw my food away. NEVER I BEEN TREATED SO POORLY!!

    I hate to be writing this review cause I’ve been in service industry before but our experience was nothing but horrible. We had a reservation at 8 pm and after checking in with the hostess she said they are running behind and to wait at the bar. No problem at all so we grabbed a drink and waited for 20 minutes to be seated where they sat us outside after we asked to be seated inside. Ordered drinks and 2 appetizers right away and saw people just coming in and sitting outside at whatever table they wanted (so did we even need a reservation?) and taking pictures where we had to get up from our seats multiple times. Asked our server 2 times for water which never came then at 9 pm we asked if there is any table open inside or even at the bar area that we could move to and instead the hostess came back very rude to both of us saying we only have 40 min left of our reservation and no I can’t move you and need your table…….. I understand it is the weekend and they are busy but it took them 20 min to seat us and at that point we didn’t even get the 2 appetizers we ordered as soon as we sat and the water I asked for the hostess girl to be so rude to me and my boyfriend saying we have only 40min left…. We go out all the time and spend a lot of money. We were celebrating my promotion so had higher expectations. Never going back.

    Charged for just going to theWIT! Unbelievable!! Many Chicago restaurants have a reservation fee now. It’s just what’s expected. BUT!! TheWIT does not deduct that fee from the food/beverage bill. So basically, you’re paying just to get a rooftop seat. This is definitely not the hottest rooftop spot in the city. Just try your luck as a walk-in. DO NOT pay just to go to this restaurant!!!

    Upside: great setting and drinks, DJ, decent sushi. Downsides were in the reservation process. It was $10/person for a reservation, and we didn't get the type of table we requested even though there seemed to be plenty available. Two of us were instead crammed onto a small bar table for dinner.

    Had to wait for 30 minutes even with a reservation. Finally seated and our waitress intentionally avoided us for 30 minutes. Decided go to the bar to get our drinks and the manager came. Gave me a hard time for ordering at the bar, even after I mentioned we had been ignored for 30 minutes. The turn around was when the waitress got the message and took care of us from that point. Not sure if the message came from my conversation with the manager or the bartender who received a generous tip. Either way, we had great service after that. Why it took a negative situation to get service but it’s Chicago.
