Rooftop 25 was a very fun. The food was excellent. I would recommend it to others. There were very limited options for vegetarians, which made it challenging. The service was very good and the staff was very pleasant and willing to help.

There were a couple of parties going on which made it very difficult for our party to enjoy each other. We would go again but try to find a time that was not as crowded.

First time dining on the rooftop and was at first disappointed that the vibe and menu was unlike the dining room which we love so much. But we had such a great time. The service was super and food was excellent and exceeded our expectations! Thanks for a great evening.

This isn’t a place you’re waited on at a table if you’re looking for a restaurant experience. Had to get in line to order food and drinks, like at a fast food restaurant, you’re given a table number and your order is brought out to you. Got to front of line and they weren’t taking food orders because the kitchen was “backed up” and we had to “try again later”. When our drinks finally arrived, there was confusion where to bring the drinks and the order was wrong. Patio heaters not very strong.

I've been to Rooftop 25 before and have had mixed experiences. I think that sums up this place...it's a coin flip about whether it will be good or mediocre. The menu was limited and didn't have past cuisines or cocktails. The kitchen actually shut down through the bulk of our time. The saving grace for tonight was the wonderful hostess and kind bartender.

Could you please provide us more information regarding your review? We have every staff member masked, sanitation at every area where people make a payment and at bathrooms and elevators, tables are spaced apart 6 feet and we are doing everything we can to comply and keep our staff and people safe. If we are missing something it would be helpful during this brutal time where every restaurant is closing there doors for good to let us know vs anonymously saying we are unsafe with zero examples.

Food was good, but not amazing, and the volume is a bit much.

Cocktails are recommended, particularly the Carnival en Oaxaca.

Probably going to recommend as a drinks venue mostly.

The pork chop was so tough that my husband couldn't really eat it. When we mentioned it toward the end of the meal, they gave him a free glass of a dessert wine he didn't want to make up for it. It would have been better to deduct the price.
It was my birthday - noted in the Open Table restaurant reservation. We had a few toasts at the table and nobody on the staff asked about what we were celebrating, could they take a picture for us... We had the Pris Fixe menu, but it might have been nice to throw a candle on my cheese cake. The restaurant was empty - so there was plenty of time to notice these things. The final price was exorbitant for the mediocre service and failed entree. We will not go back or recommend it to any friends.

We loved the cocktails and the desserts. The complimentary bite size mushroom cheese cake was mouth watering. We ordered tuna tar tar and mussels as appetizer. We loved the tuna tar tar. Lobster raviolis was also great. Loved the desserts.

Hello, I’m writing this review in hopes to be helpful. My fiancé and I were entertaining family in town from NYC so we chose 25 Lusk
Based off reviews. Our experience was not one of those success stories. We checked in at 7pm for our 7:30pm reservations, We were welcomed by the hostess to sit in the lounge and wait for our table, no big deal! Around 7:15 someone brought us water and told us the hostess would be down to seat us soon. Shortly after that we were approached 5 times by different members of staff, asking to order drinks, then seemingly very annoyed when we said no, we were waiting to order drinks at the table. Now mind you, we didn’t get sat for our 7:30 reservation until almost 8pm (the other parties waiting in the lounge however were sat right on time), so by the time the last annoyed employee came and asked us to order drinks came by, I personally felt obliged to order something. So I went to the bar and ordered one glass of wine; when I did, the bartender responded with an exasperated “That’s it?!??”
Basically this set the tone for an underwhelming experience going forward. The best part of our meal was the pretzel bites, to be honest, and that’s not what we brought our family from across the country to have, know what I mean? On a positive note- Our server and the bread servers were fantastic, they certainly made the best of the rest of the evening. But all
In all, the food was greasy, and seemed like something we could have gotten for a 1/3rd of the price at a less “exclusive” restaurant. In addition, we felt like we were a major inconvenience to the staff. We hope it gets better because like I said, the dining room service staff was top notch.

Overall this is a beautiful place with amazing service. All of that was amazing, not one complaint. However for the money there are way better options in sf for the food part. The pre-fixed menu for $65 quickly turned $198.00 for 2 before tip. The two of us did order one drink each and I did choose the steak upgrade option. Which all was additional. The food wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t amazing and for $100 a person there are a lot of options in the city that are amazing. It just seems like regular food you can get anywhere for 1/2 the price.

I hope this place figures out a better meal because the service and atmosphere are amazing. I’d come again for drinks and appetizers for sure.

Overall, service and drinks were amazing. I had the NYE pre-fixed menu and I thought it was okay.. the flavors were overall complimentary. But, I felt it was overpriced for what was offered. It was simple and not extremely elegant. Good for a first date to impress and drinks were tasty
