I made a reservation and called to see if there was a cover charge. I was told I and then we got there we were informed it would be 200 dollars for a table. For would overpriced and mediocre. Music sucked as well.

The only good thing about this place was the music and the ambience. Other than that VERY POOR service.
The bartenders and waiters seem to have attitude and the drinks were taking TOO long to be deliver.
I will absolutely not come back OR recommend this place to friends and family.

The place was nice but service and everybody that greeted us was rude, specially the bartender. Everybody was rude and nobody seemed like they had nice manners. Never coming back or recommending anyone to go there.

The overall ambiance of the bar was great however our service was terrible. I usually don’t complain about things like this but our server was rude and had a very negative attitude the whole night. He did not smile once, ask how we were doing, took too long on one order of drinks (2 were just bottles of beer) and did not even say have a goodnight or thank you.

The music was so loud at 730pm when everyone is just sitting and eating dinner. It would’ve made more sense to have the music lower during those times and then increase the volume around 9 or 10pm.

We were seated and then over 30 minutes passed before we were even acknowledged by the wait staff (after having to ask the bartender if we had a server or not)
The vibe was a little too chaotic and unorganized, which is unfortunate because the space is actually pretty nice

Made a reservation for 4 at the request of out of town guests who wanted rooftop dining experience. We were running late so the restaurant was kind enough to seat our guests so they could have drinks and appetizers while they waited for us.

The menu is a bit limited - mostly appetizers and pizzas. But everything was tasty. And pricing was pretty decent considering this was downtown where things are expected to be pricy. My biggest issue, and thus the main reason for only 3 stars, was that the music was SUPER LOUD. I knew that this was a lounge/nightclub but assumed that at 6pm it would be more of a restaurant atmosphere. Really hard to have a good conversation with our guests. But it was a nice location for scenic views so overall pleasant experience.

This place is a joke. We waited 20 min trying to get someone to take out our order and left. Actually witnessed the waitress refusing to come to our table after the bus boy tried to flag her down for us.

The soft shell crab in the sushi was cooked in hot grease. The pizza was hot and fresh. The spicy tuna was nice.

Venue and atmosphere are great. Good location. Great for date night or happy hours. Service rates low because kitchen was understaffed causing them to restrict the menu to only pizza (which was very good but we went there for sushi). Our server was also very good.

The place was beautiful. The hostess was very accommodating with seating. Service was ok, only one waiter was working that particular section that day. They placed my order on the same plate as my son's order which was weird. But overall a pleasant experience.

I treated a good friend out for her Birthday and we were very excited about our reservations. Food was good we ordered the pizzas. Drinks were subpar and the waiter and service was poor. We requested ice cream as on the menu and were told “no more ice cream”. It took forever to track down the waitress for service and to pay the bill. I provided cash 2 fifty dollar bills and I was told they didn’t have cash after taking my cash….smh! Kind of disappointed in the experience.

It took over 90 minutes to be served, not once was I offered another round of drinks. The service is on par with the food. Both below tolerable.

It is a nightclub with no dress code not a swanky rooftop lounge. The table was taken when we arrive, we did not get the hightop we requested. The service was slow at best and didnt want to order food tried to say the kitchen was closed for our dinner reservations?

This place is beautiful. The ambiance is incredible, the food is amazing and the views are to die for. But the service is TERRIBLE. When you arrive, the hosts come off as clueless. If you are lucky enough to be seated within one hour of your reservation, count your blessings. If your waiter is kind enough to ask you what you would like to eat and drink within 30 minutes of getting seated, buy a lottery ticket. The service was so bad that it became easier for my party to get up and go over to the bar and order drinks as opposed to relying on the server. The management is clearly very weak and the service reflects this. I'm stunned that whoever invests in this place would allow such terrible management/service to run the show.

Spicy Chicken pizza was amazing. Music was a bit loud to start but eventually reminded me of being in my 20's dancing on Rush Street. :)

This place has definitely lost its original flair. It was dirty and service was slow. I will give them a little break as I know Covid has affected staffing but the drinks were nasty, typical club watered down and not crafted appropriately. So if you want a true club Avenue this may work but if seeking a more refined experience e, like it was when they first opened, go elsewhere.

Had a reservation and had to wait 10minutes to be seated. Waited and waited for a server to arrive. Finally just got Voss waters and G&T’s. Again waited and server never checked on us. After asking for the check. Waited additional 20min for it to arrive. Not the experience we were anticipating. Would not plan on going back.

I had such high expectations for the end to our date night. Literally nothing went right! We entered a few minutes ahead of our reservation, the 3 hostesses told us they had to ‘check on a table’ and never left the hostesses stand. They then seated 2 people who came in after us. After about 10 min we were shown to our indoor seats (we thought we’d be outside, it is a rooftop after all.) Once seated things never got better, average time to get a drink after we ordered was 30 min. We had to ask for water numerous times. We stayed at this hotel for this rooftop and absolutely regret it. Would never recommend this to anyone!

I made reservations a couple of weeks out from my trip. It looked like an awesome spot and we were really excited to go….until we saw our table. We were seated outside in a far corner off the side of the restaurant with a couple of other tables. Nothing at all like what was advertised. Upon leaving, we walked to the other side of the restaurant (which was beautiful) and what is advertised online.

Came in for HH only to find it was no longer a thing (the website has yet to be updated).

The drinks and food still were delicious.

Tables are timed and they are strict about it. Do not leave your table because they will seat another group. Seriously, it happened in 5 min.
