Took my son here on a date to show him proper etiquette, and how to act in a “fancy restaurant”, he loved the music, and loved the view, and the food.

Menu is diverse enough for vegans and carnivores for fast pre-game meal, and short walk to Staples Center. Couldn't ask for better service than what we got. The rooftop view isn't "incredible", but it's better than 99% of restaurants in DTLA. So they got that going for them. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Prefect place to go for pregame meal and drinks with friends. Great ambiance, decent-ish view, delicious apples, burgers, and sandwiches, and tasty drinks. There are heat lamps if it gets a little chilly up there. We had a great time.

Fabulous views of downtown LA. Delicious cocktails and tasty food. Recommend the fish tacos, ceviche appetizer, and the lamb appetizer. Staff were all very friendly. Seating for diner was nice but seating at the bar is very limited.

The food was decent they were out of stock on fish and the steak was not seasoned. Drinks are good but definitely not a place to go out to dinner

Had reservation for the brunch experience this passed sunday at 12 (10-17-21) no one mentioned anything about it so we ended up ordering off the regular menu, took forever to help us after sitting down, and our food somehow ended up coming out before our drinks.

Took a few to get our order in for drinks and food but we finally did.

About 15-20 pass and still not one drink.

Food comes out and it’s ALL out. I mean we ordered some starters. Nope not here. They’re all part of the same entree.

We never even got silver ware. I had to ask for some after the food arrived.

Drinks still haven’t made they’re way to the table. I have to ask several people why and how good comes out before a cocktail.

They forgot a part of my order and I have to ask the runner not my server cause he’s absent minded and never really cared to check in on us.

They bring out the missing part of my order and then 10 minutes later bring it out again.

I got charged 2X for that part of my order.

ALL IN ALL NOT GREAT!!! Never “I’m sorry things went the way they did””anything else I can do?!” Nothing!!!

The hostess was so sweet and seated us quickly. Our table was too dark to read the menu and they had no candles. Service was extremely slow. The food was so bland and unseasoned. We had the hummus, the sea bass, and the beet salad. All were flavorless and unfillling. We asked for other options and even what the server recommended. The allleged 4 best dishes were all sold out. Annoying. I would not eat here again. This was not my first time at the warfare but I think the menu has changed. I won’t return. Decor was super cute though

The service was not good. We were seated at 12:15 and our waiter didn’t take our order until 1:00. My daughter ordered the burger and it came out bloody raw and cold. I ordered the rosé frozee and the machine wasn’t working, so instead of telling me that, they brought me a drink they tried to make on the rocks like the frozee. Sent it back.

Executive brunch is fantastic. The drinks were delicious and strong, food was great, each dish arrived at the perfect time, and the view was great (speaking ad someone who appreciates architecture). Staff is great, however better suited to customers who don't mind flagging them down when they want something (don't expect frequent check-ins, get their attention instead - very responsive staff.)

Table was broken upon arrival — very rickety so we had switch to table next to us. The food was lackluster. They served us fish tacos with no salsa. Had to ask for salsa then turns out they had red and green, why not serve that on the side with the tacos?! Only thing good about this place is the frosès and the view. They need a New chef and new menu ASAP!

Absolutely terrible service, we were here to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. Our reservation was on a Sunday at 5, we arrived about 15 minutes early and they actually sat us down at our table right away. Our server came over and briefly went over their drink menu and took our order. We sat and waited for about 50 minutes and still no drinks, so we asked another server if he can please check for us, we waited another 10 minutes and nothing. After that we decided to leave as my girlfriend was already annoyed, they never came back to check on us for a whole hour and the place was nearly empty, I don’t understand how awful their service is. If they took that long with 2?drinks I don’t even want to imagine how long their food takes!! Don’t waste your time here and go to any other rooftop in the area, there is many other options with beautiful views and great service!

Honestly the service was absolutely horrible. Extremely long wait times, our waitress took our drink orders - it took nearly 40 minutes for the drinks to arrive. Nearly an hour after being seated we were finally able to wave her down to put in appetizer orders. We ended up waiting 1.5 hours after putting our apps to put in our entree orders. It was absolutely ridiculous and I will not be returning. A casual dinner ended up taking nearly 5 hours from arrival to departure.

Waited to be seated and only got seated after I got the attention of hostess. Waiter was unable to ask bartender to make a drink from past menu. At time of payment they were unable to break a 100.00 bill so I order another round of drinks. Was still unable to break a 100.00 bill. Will not be returning as it is not wort the trouble.
