    Poor service and overpriced drinks. We went for the rooftop which was closed when we arrived so it was not worth it.

    I Took My Fianće Here & Our In Laws Was Apart For My Queen Birthday I Must Say The View Was Spectacular & The Food Was Good Surprisedly Because My Experience With Really Nice RoofTop Food Wasn’t Good But They Was Amazing The Staff Was So Helpful & Professional Thank You Again RoofTop. I’ll Be Back Now To Rent The Entire RoofTop A Customer For Life. Only Thing I Would Say Is Create Parking For The Restaurant Only. THERE IS NO PARKING I SPENT 20MINUTES LOOKING FOR PARKING AND THE LOTS AROUND THERE OVERCHARGE AND RIP YOU OFF AND CLOSES EARLIER

    I was assigned a table quickly but no one came for 15 mins to take the order. I explicitly called random waiters to place orders. Drinks were served quickly but the food was again delayed until I asked again explicitly. The "Yard bird" dish was really bad. We didn't place any further orders as I don't want to wait so long and am not sure how the food will taste.

    Sadly expected more from our experience considering the beautiful scenery but the service was not on par. When ordering our first round of drinks from the bar we asked for Don Julio Anjeo on the rocks and a SICILIAN SPRITZ. We watched bartender pour Casa Migos instead of the don julio requested. Upon her serving the drink we explained we ordered Don Julio not Casa Migos to which she replied,”the Don Julio is more expensive”! We are will aware of the cost and did not appreciate the discourteous response. Secondly the SICILIAN SPRITZ tasted like juice with no Prosecco. We then closed our tab at the bar and moved to our table reservation. The serving & clearing of table was intrusive and unorganized. We hoped this would be a chill night with great views but the over all experience was underwhelming and we won’t be returning or recommending.

    The views and the food made the place worthwhile, but despite having reservations the seating was very poor. outdoor couches on rooftop were more like 'take them as you see them' versus assigned seating. There were a lot of floaters causing less privacy and more of a packed club experience. it felt like we were randomly given a table which was partially indoors, super noisy and no views and we landed up as lurkers for the couch area. Overall food and views are excellent but they need to keep it more organized and manageable given its a small space.

    This rooftop/restaurant/bar has a great decor and the view of the Manhattan skyline is second to none. Good food, and drinks and the staff is very attentive. If you have a company function or if you just want to impress your date, this is the spot. I’ll be back.

    Ambiance was amazing our waitress was amazing, I wish I had her name to give her a review. The wings tasted as if there weren’t seasoned and the drinks were watered down. We even even the shots were watered down. We spoke the manager who introduced himself as Jude, tried to make him aware of the drinks being flat and he showed no care in the world. The staff showed more customer service skills than he did. The patron and Henny shots barely had a smell or taste, we even asked one of the workers to smell the Henny in front of him and he said the Henny did smell light. The manager bought out a second bottle of Henny and poured the shot in front of us which actually smelled like Henny and was darker in color… and the manager still acted as if nothing was wrong. Scenery and the staff were 5 stars… Manager and Food, was trash

    Great music and great views. Service could’ve been a little better. They didn’t bring out food out together - and when asked it was clear the forgot about the second order. Not a terrible experience, but definitely not my favorite.

    The ambiance was great, and the service was great as well. The food was overpriced and the menu needed more work as well as the drinks. They also need to add mocktails in case someone doesn't drink. Overall, my group and I had a great time, and I would definitely come again.

    Drinks were not very good, especially for what you were paying. Service was very slow. Views were beautiful but probably would not go again. And they kick you out at 10:30. Never been to a rooftop bar that closes so early.

    They were understaffed so just getting a round of drinks took over 30 minutes and then they decided to close early around 10pm when they were supposed to close at 1pm. They rudely just told us to get out.

    Service was terrible. Took 30 minutes to bring drinks to our table. Drinks were watered down and tasted bad. Wait staff seemed overworked and stressed. Witnessed manager named Jude be very rude to the staff. Ended up leaving and not waiting for food. Several patrons by the bar also left due to being ignored by the bar. It's such a shame because the venue is beautiful and has amazing views of Manhattan.

    Great views and set up but Saturday at 4pm doesn’t need to feel like a club. We are 30s and if the music was not club we would regularly come in early afternoons with friends and family. Instead we really only go to show an out of town friend the view and leave

    In our case we wanted to update our booking, so they didn't answer the calls or reply to emails. When we tried to update the booking on OpenTable, they didn't have the updates upon our arrival. So our table booking, they converted it to a spot at the bar. Also there are limited food options. Not sure why did this happen which was surprising but overall I and my friends had a decent time.

    I was made to go between rooftop and terrace multiple times for my reservation, because apparently there was no seats for us. I made a reservation and it was confirmed. so the confusion and making us go to terrace then rooftop then terrace is a bit ridiculous. Service is ok. Food is alright.

    The ambiance was beautiful. Unfortunately, cleanliness was a problem from the floor to the bathroom. Very unexpected for such a supposed high-end establishment. The food (Rooftop) was not good at all and the drinks were okay but not worth the price.
