It is a good place to have a business lunch since it is not too noisy there. The food was decent. It was overall a good experience.

Restaurant was lovely and accommodating. Planned a bday dinner and originally sat outside, but they were happy to move us indoors bc it was too hot. The servers were wonderful, efficient, and communicative. My mom had a wonderful birthday- they even comped her birthday dessert!
Only qualm was they were out of quite a few bottles of wine on their menu, but the servers were properly apologetic.
Thanks for a great time!

Hidden Gem located in the back of 55 Water St up the two outside elevators. Shaded well so you don’t back, plenty of outside dining and open air covered area as well. Food was food. Bartender was excellent. Nice spot

What an awesome downtown spot!! The food was delicious and ambiance was perfect - would recommend for everything from an intimate date to after-work drinks. Get the jalapeno margarita and DEFINITELY the short rib grilled cheese ALL DAY. Don't forget to tip the awesome staff. Can't wait to come again.

Excellent Host and Exceptional perfect stellar waitress. I was very surprised at this find and am happily impressed. Will frequent this restaurant. I'd expect this place to get packed during the summer days as it has open and airy atmosphere and beautiful view of Brooklyn outside. This place is an A+ in my book.

Sky 55 is located in an office building. Not well marked to find. And I work in the building. Had to go through a locked security door to get to the restaurant. On the way out I had to show my building ID to leave- again through a locked door-even though I say good morning to this particular guard nearly every morning on my way to work. It all created a strange vibe just to get to/from an average restaurant. Also, the venue is not as large and the views not anywhere near as nice as their website leads you to believe. On the plus side they have a 20% discount for building employees.

So, if you work there, don’t have much time for a meal and aren’t concerned with impressing your guests, I guess it’s OK.

Good Afternoon, Thank you so much for sending the review over. We are delighted that tenants working at 55 Water St. dine with us& also appreciate the internal security they provide. This is out of our control & wish too it was easier for the internal tenants. For all guests, we also have an outside entrance which is very easy to access. Our staff works hard each and every day to make it a wonderful dining experience. We are happy to extend a 20% discount to the tenants of 55 Water Street.

Sky 55 is a beautiful place with great cocktails and appetizers . I took my girlfriends there during their Chocolate Month special and we all absolutely loved it. The chocolate-nutty drink I ordered was delicious and the Korean Nachos to die for. We order it twice. Every item on the menu was very very good, the ambience, cocktails, wine and service all 5 stars. I can’t wait for a warmer weather to enjoy their outside seating. Great job!

Came for a holiday lunch and both the food a service were excellent. Quite unexpected in this area of New York.
Known as the businessman’s wasteland.
Would recommend it and are definitely coming back.

A great addition to the neighborhood! Glad I found this place on Open Table, because it is tucked away and not visible from the street. Excellent service. Nice choice of specialty cocktails, and they taste great too! Food was very good, and menu is diverse with a little something for everyone. I hope they do well, despite their hidden location.

I was very luck to find this place because of an email from Open Table about new restaurants on Open Table. This is one restaurant that you will not find unless you know where it is because you must go up an escalator to get there. I have been here several times for lunch and the food is always great. The food is very reasonably priced too. Every soup that I have tried has been excellent. The caesar salad is great with fried anchovies. The branzino was cooked perfectly. Whatever you have here you will not be disappointed,

I had my first experience at Sky 55 today. I thought it was the perfect spot for lunch, and the best lobster roll I’ve ever had! I’ll definitely be back. There’s a lot more on the menu that I want to try. It’s always a plus when the service is great too!

What a great place to get together with friends after work. It was my second visit and I just have to say, I love it. I tried their signature "blame it on the aperol" gin cocktail and if was wonderfully balanced, delicious drink.
For food, I like to try bunch of stuff and I have to say the spicy corn soup...wow in the best possible way.
Citrus salad was refreshing and yummy! Great dressing to balance the citrus. My favorite of all was flat bread zucchini! What a great fall dish.
What I like about the place is that you can be vegetarian and still find fantastic food on the menu, when your friends are enjoying their juicy burgers. I was told very tasty.
For desert you have to try their passionfruit mojito! LOVED IT!

Wonderful dining experience! Food was delish, many creative cocktails to chose from. Old fashion knock out is truly a knock out! So tasty. Service was impeccable. Great ambiance, fun for drinks with friends but also suitable for a date night.

Wow! I didn’t expect much from the hidden spot like Bar 55! One of my clients recommended it for afterwork drinks, so I decide to check it out. What a nice surprise! The ambience, service, wine selection, food! I was forced to eat octopus that I always though I hated, and let me tell you ; thank you Sky 55 forhelping me discover the octopus again!!! The grilled sea creature with spicy choorizo was a hit! I love octopus now! The new menu is coming next week, so I’ll surely be there to check it out. Love Sky 55 !!!
