There is not much of choice of food for us. The place is nice and the people are great. However it’s not worth it for us to drive all the way.

The place is beautiful, great for taking pics. The music is a good mix of hip hop and top 40. The service wasn’t that good, took forever to get water and drinks. The food was okay, also nothing special, the shrimp and grits must have goat cheese so that threw off the taste.

Overall fun ambiance, just come here with patience and don’t expect much from the food.

Great seat overlooking downtown and the server was a very good one. We had a couple of drinks and an appetizer of Mac and cheese all very good. I would highly recommend this place.

Horrible service, took over an hour to just get drinks and another 45 minutes on top of that to get food. Servers had to be waived down or followed around to get them to help

In one word disappointing. I had a reservation and had to still wait 10-15 more minutes. I was offered a table that was tucked away but looked it would better suited for small kids. I ordered beer on the menu and they didn’t have any my girl wanted a pina Colada they don’t serve them. I ordered an appetizer from the menu and they were out of an ingredient and could not serve it. I ordered other drinks and decided to leave before they showed up . I offered to pay and they said don’t worry about it you never got them. Long story short we left and ate at Morton’s who accommodated us just before closing time.

The food was delicious. They seemed understaffed. When we asked them to turn on the heaters it took a while for anyone to get around to it or figure it out. The waiter was unfamiliar with the menu and tried to push us to buy more expensive items. I asked him if they could switch out the side of fries for something else. The waiter said he would ask the cooks but never followed up with me and I recieved a plate of fries. Very pretty view and good food.

The service started out very good. Toward the latter half of the experience, the waitress forgot about us and failed to bring a drink. Instead we were given the check and told that we exceeded our time with no warning. Then it took the waitress 15 minutes to process payment which could have included two more drinks while we waited. Management and service could be improved.

Waited 45 minutes for drinks to come and it came after our food. How does the food come first before your drinks?I didn’t know it took so long to pour some Coke over ice and pour some frozen rose in a cup. Part of our food came 45 minutes later and we were still missing some eggs. Was really disappointed with the overall service and halfway through the way the waiter comes and tells us they sold out of the drink I had originally ordered. Overall cool ambience and nice restaurant but poor service and lack of taste in food. I will not be returning again.

Food was not good. The chilaquiles were like nachos, the coffee was pretty watered down, the service was sub par. I had asked for another coffee but they took so long that we ended up paying and not getting the coffee. I had taken my friends for a rooftop experience and they were disappointed...

We loved loved our waitress KAREN SALVATIERVA!! She made out experiences there a blast! We went for the brunch and it was a lot of alcohol so for people who do not drink alcohol warning the brunch is mostly alcohol. But overall other than the very limited brunch menu our waitress made the experience unforgettable great energy great service she took great care of us. The view is just of buildings I love rooftops I love being able to see a nice skyline or overlooks the city but the view at this particular restaurant was just buildings.But nonetheless give it a try we enjoyed ourselves overall if you’re not going to be super Duper pickle.

The food and drinks were amazing. I took my family to celebrate my son’s high school graduation and wasn’t disappointed. The ambiance was great and the crowd was young. It was loud, however, I knew it would be. I definitely recommend this place.

Literally had the worst experience ever. Completely ruined my birthday. Not sure what the point of making a reservation was if I still had to wait over an hour to be sat. Not only that but we waited another 30 minutes to get our drinks and they tasted awful. Our server was nice and did his best but this place needs to get it together. Basically paid $250 for the aesthetic. Even that was bare minimum. Extremely disappointed and telling everyone I know to never come here.

I believe I won't be going back to the Rooftop restaurant at the Wayferer Hotel because it was disappointing for a few reasons. Chiefly among them was the two tables 9ffered 5o us, after making online reservations and specifically stating it was for a loved one's birthday, both had uncomfortable stools passing as chairs, while everyone else around us had comfortable chairs and intimate table placements. We were placed in a corner table where we had a solid view of a new construction site. I wanted the awesome and gorgeous views I had read about. Secondly, while the crab-stuffed mushrooms were what God must feast on as an appetizer, there was a portion of ny bruschietta wrapped chicken that was tough, hard and impossible to eat. His scallops were good but kept from greatness by a tepid temperature in which they came out from the kitchen. My cocktail had an obscene amount of ice, too. The ser ers were passable, but not particularly memorable.

Peter served us and was awesome. Great service!
Pork belly was too tough

The environment is very nice, and we were seated by a very nice staff who showed us around and answered our questions. However, our server was somewhat rude and made us feel a little unwelcome. The food was quite good, though some of the drinks had space for improvement. Overall, the experience was alright, but I would need to consider it if returning.
