Rooftop at Wayfarer Hotel DTLA is now open. The mood, the views, the late summer afternoon that slips mysteriously into a long LA evening under the stars. Any wonder it’s one of the best rooftop bars in downtown Los Angeles?

The food was really good. Pricey but good. The server Saviour has outstanding customer service . Very attentive and polite. The wait was long even tho I had made a reservation. But over all it was a good experience.

Server was patient and attentive, roof top views were nice for sunset. I brought my family here while they were visiting from out of state and we all had a great time.

I made reservations here for my boyfriend’s birthday brunch, and the pictures looked so nice! I wanted to take him out to a nice place, and I thought we had found it, but I was VERY wrong. This is a hotel pool bar. NOT a nice restaurant. We sat down and within 2 minutes, the server came to bring us water and asked us what we wanted to eat. No drink order or anything, just immediately food. We asked for more time to look over the menu and he came back twice in the 5 minutes after that, trying to take our food order. We ended up leaving without ordering anything because I was enraged by the service and the misleading Open Table description. I have worked in the restaurant industry for years and I was astonished by the atmosphere and service. I had to put a credit card down in order to make the reservation and was told if I had to make any changes or I canceled, I would be charged a fee. We ended up getting takeout from a pizza place and it completely ruined the day. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless you are just looking for a very casual quick drink.

I was pleasantly surprised by Rooftop at Wayfarer. I will say it was priced a little to high for what it was. I'd go again and recommend to a fair, but with the caveat it's pricey for a standard menu.

I didn’t eat any food and the survey won’t let me skip the question. The drinks were tasty and the staff was nice. It was a busy night for them. The patio was spaced out nicely but all of the tables were full. We had a reservation so we didn’t have any problems being seated. My only complaint would be that one of the food servers/bartenders had a mask on that was too big. She was social and friendly to customers and co-workers but she kept messing with her mask as it repeatedly slipped down. It bothered me but it might not bother others.

Have only been for weekend brunch - Fills up very quickly on weekends - lots of covid safe seating options - all servers are masked and disinfectant is plentiful. The views from here are great - it is a fairly narrow, long establishment so everybody gets the same view. The menu is not large, and has some interesting items on it. We had the beignets which were okay but freshly cooked. and the Chilaquiles were excellent with a soy base. I think this would be a great place to take in a sunset. Nearby parking garage was only $6 on weekends. All in all a very pleasurable experience!.

We made this reservation because it was our 3 year wedding anniversary and I wrote that in the comments for reservation . The hostess tried to seat us in a dark cave corner w absolutely no view . I asked if she had something better she said every one came at the same time before us . How rude then why make the reservation at all?if I can just walk in and and get a better table ! We ended up having to wait for a better table waited about 15 min . The food was horrible it gave me a stomach ache. I had the tonga tacos . I would not come back here for the food-only the view . The tables have a two hour limit so they basically kick you out at the hour 45 mark. And that they don’t disclose to you until they’re kicking you out

We had reservations got sat quickly but waited 20-30 min for someone to finally take our order. Good cans in perfect time but then again we never saw the server again we only got served drinks once no refills. Place is amazing view is perfect just waiter service was very poor. Will be back hope it was just a off day.

Came here to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. It was a very cold day, I asked if they can turn on the heaters. They said no because it's out of gas. Okay fine. We placed orders for drinks, a carafe of sangria, because they were out of mimosas. Okay fine. We ordered the food the same time: the rooftop burger, ahi tuna tartar, holy shrimp and grits, beignets, and the charcuterie.

The server asked my daughter what she wanted to drink and I said "no, kids drinks please. Shirley temple". "she said a non alcoholic one?
?" "YES, she is 12!" !!!!!!!!

Wow, took forever just to bring the sangria, coca-cola and pineapple juice. She brings as each a glass for the sangria and handed one to my 12 year old daughter. Uhhhhh what?! 20 minutes just for the drinks. Then the food took even longer and longer, one by one took awhile. So draining. Then asked for two mango hard seltzers and a coffee. She brought the seltzers and coffee. We asked if we can get half and half and sugar. NOTHING... she forgot to bring it and the coffee got cold!!! Then another sever came named Savior, oh wow, he was great! He brought my mom new coffee, creamer, and sugar! He even sang a happy birthday song to her, he was the only thing great during this visit. Only reason there are stars because he made my mom smile and he was great!

Even the bill took a long time! It was not even crowded.
Food was mediocre, it was okay, nothing special. Will definitely not come back. I really wanted to like this place too!

Everything was great until the end of our experience. Our waiter was fantastic, but then had to go on break, once he left, service became extraordinarily slow (to be fair — it did look as though business picked up and got busy). It was very windy that day,

Food was decent. Service was subpar. Had to battle for water refills and the waiter forgot to place one of our order. Value for the experience was marginal.

Our drinks took 40 minutes to come out, staff was super unorganized. Gave us the wrong check at first. Fortunately they left an appetizer off our check and didn't charge us for it.

Booked the table on OpenTable but when I came checking in, the lady said that they did not have any tables available and there were many reservations in front of us. It just doesn't make sense to have the table available on the app but not in reality.
