One corner of Skyloft has ocean view and that’s where we sat.

Plenty of seating and has a sports bar feel.

Staff friendly and attentive.

We went in on a rainy Monday night--very quiet, felt like we had the place to ourselves. Food was good, I enjoyed their Restaurant Week offerings & rest of family ordered off main menu. Very patient waitress let my neurodivergent brother take his time.

We had a reservation for dinner at 9. Upon arriving we were told we had to pay $10 each, which is fine since they take credit cards. Think of this as more of a club that sells food instead of a restaurant. If you like really loud EDM music this is for you. The dancing area is small, it is a tiny space between tables on the way to the restrooms. The DJ played Justin Timberlake type mixes so it was not our style of music. We were seated at the very back of the restaurant and could still not hear our guests sitting across from us because the music was too loud. If you want a clubbing experience then this is the place, but I would not recommended eating here.

Pretty mediocre. We went here bc it was the only place with not much of a wait - everywhere else we tried was an hour +! The girl at the host stand (who seemed to be the leader of the two) needs some serious training in customer service. She was so rude, vague, and man- if facial expressions could kill. On the other hand, our server was really great. Super nice, polite, and took into account that I am vegan when he made suggestions or made sure I to not include an ingredient in my order to help me out. The food... some of my friends said their food was good or alright. Mine was really not good and not worth the money. Overall... meh.

Christian was just ok, not as attentive as I would have liked.
Appetizers were great, gumbo tasted like thick chilli and cajun pasta had too much cheese.

Cute place, great dj and great for drinks and dancing on a Sat night.

While we went to dance for a short time, someone came and took our food and our drinks. Restaurant is extremely crowded . Because is good, crowd is friendly and energetic. Not sure if we would go again.

The Shrimp Cajun Pasta is definitely a dish I would recommend due to its good amount of shrimp , flavor was outstanding and the veggies brought it all together. The drinks were so good , full of flavor well garnished and presentation was perfect. The view from the roof top was beautiful and the breeze was nice. Very clean , the vibes were also good.

Being that we made reservations for Valentine's day we were very pleased. My boyfriend are I first timers here .
Ambiance of the rooftop would be really great for summer time , but we still had a great time. Food was good , but a bit cold when it was served to us, the chicken wings were good . Drinks were amazing. I had the blueberry coconut mojito and my boyfriend had the old fashion with woodford instead of makers mark. Money well spent for an overrated day to show love . Lol !!! We would definitely come back when the weather permits , but I'm sure will be very busy.
From the hostesses when we entered, to being welcomed and greeted upstairs and our server Josh . They all deserve the 5 star rating. Everyone was very accommodating being that it's a popular day and it being a friday night . All warm with great smiles and well mannered . Skyloft OC knows the meaning of customer service . Thank you for making our first time and Valentine's day special

Disappointing for a Valentines date. Pre-COVID so our table was inside by the dance floor. I should have asked for a table on the top deck. Food was average, service was decent. Just did not feel like they cared if we were there. Maybe just a bad night???...on Valentines Day???

Got there for an early 4:45 reservation. The entire restaurant was empty yet they decided to seat us in the very far back and dark corner. I asked to move to a window table. They hesitantly agreed. Servers were very blah. Not outwardly friendly or rude, just blah. We asked about the BBQ and server ensured us it was smoked daily in house. Sounds fantastic! I got the brisket and my BF got the full rack of ribs. His ribs were the driest ribs I’ve ever had. Tasted like they were a couple days old and reheated and slabbed with sauce. My brisket was OK, good flavor but extremely fatty. Sides were completely flavorless. Only highlights were the drinks and the view. Would come back for the rooftop but maybe just for appetizers and drinks, definitely not the BBQ.

We sat on the roof top. It was just the perfect weather for it and they had the heaters on. The service was great with suggestions from our waiter. His personal testimonials on dishes he loved. Our food was amazing and the dessert even better!

I enjoyed the atmosphere, very friendly , of course the view at sunset was gorgeous and the service was wonderful, our waiter Juan was very professional, oh and the jambalaya was off the hook, the only drawback was trying to find parking, other than it was a wonderful dining experience.

The food was delicious and the portions were large enough to share with my husband. The roof top experience was beautiful, seating was a little tight but comfortable. Our waiter Chris was on top of it, never left us waiting and was personable with us. It was our first time here and would definitely go back! The DJ was popping but the dance floor was kind of small, not many young folks in their 30;s :(

Great rooftop location. The service was good and our server was friendly but we ordered the 8 oz. filet cooked medium and it was served very rare. The waiter acknowledged it and had it cooked longer. Overall tasty food, good service and romantic atmosphere.
