This is a rooftop, indoor style restaurant with nice views of the city skyline. The staff, food and the atmosphere around this place is really, really nice.

The view makes it worth it, but my order was messed up multiple times. The wrong plate of pasta came out, but when they brought out my other pasta, it was the old pasta with meat added to it (nothing like what I had ordered.).

The service was excellent. The food came out slow but the ambiance and the view made up for the time of food preparation.

Never had more apathetic service in a fine dining establishment...we got there at our reservation time and waited 10 minutes to be seated because the hostess/waitress was nowhere to be seen. She was attentive to our drinks somewhat but then just left a pitcher of water in the middle of the table. We waited an hour and 20 minutes for our food (we were one of 3 parties in the restaurant). Food was decent but nowhere near worth the wait or the price.

Our group (10 of us) had a great time and our server (I can not remember her name) was excellent! We barely noticed the storm brewing outside, as the atmosphere and timeliness of the food preparation/delivery was excellent.

It is a great place to oversee the city of Raleigh. One side of the restaurant is all windows! The atmosphere inside is nice, but the service was very slow. The food was pretty good and a little higher than average cost. The cocktails were delicious but overpriced. We had a nice time to meet with friends and family over dinner for birthday but it was mainly due to the view of the city. Not too crowded.

Worst experience ever. Great view, but the service is appalling. Our table wasn't ready when we got there, apparently they had given it to someone else. The server spilled beer all over one of us, we had to wait more than an hour for the food, the servers kept bumping into us. When the food was finally ready, they dropped it on the floor, and we had to wait another 10 minutes. We're just ready to get the hell out of there, but it took more than 30 minutes to get the check, and they didn't even apologize or offer to compensate us.

They exceeded my expectations. They accommodated us, treated us well, and went above and beyond.

We made a reservation online for Skye on a Saturday night. We found a very loud, crowded environment. We were assured that there was a special event that regularly didn't happen, which is why the restaurant wasn't up to its regular reputation. We were very disappointed, as we were visiting from out of town. Our waitress went above and beyond to try and give us the best view we could get, and they gave us an appetizer and dessert on the house to try and make up for the disappointment.
We do look forward to visiting again, next time we will call and make sure no special events are happening when we plan to come.

We were there for valentines dinner the music they were playing was not very romantic. Staff was a little clumsy but overall it was good. We arrived early and were seated right away . We did not feel rushed and it was very relaxing.

This review is specific to my 2019 Valentine's Day visit. The skyline view was the best feature from an ambiance perspective. The food was ok to decent. The hostess was nice. The serve was nice. Overall the service, food, and ambiance of the restaurant was not worth the price. If they had a live band and dancing it would have been a better value.

Way overpriced for the money. The entrees were unimpressionable and the deserts felt like picked up from the dollar store.

Not going back there again, for sure.

For $40 per person the food should have been nothing but wows.

Everything was amazing. However, the veggies could’ve been cooked a little longer and seasoned more.

We went for my daughters birthday. Sat for 20 minutes. No one waited on us. Nothing. It was like we were invisible. We left and went next door to a nicer restaurant and was waited on immediately. Save your time and skip this place.
