Great views and wonderful tapas. Service was excellent. We will be back and plan to also try the restaurant on the first floor given the tapas quality!

We've been there 2x now. The staff is wonderful.. Decor is very cool 60s vibe. That's where it ends. Food is mediocre at best, drinks are watery. Nohappy hour. It is expensive for what you get, unless you're just paying for a view of Federal Hwy.

Music needs to be reflective of the clientele and ramp up with the evening. Jazz or 60s lite then into higher energy as evening progresses. Would not retun right away.

Always obsessed with the food, drinks, decor and ambiance but - that view. Best in Fort Lauderdale.

My new favorite spot in Los Olas. The view, drinks, food and ambiance are a vibe. Perfect to go for a lively scene without being so loud that you can't chat with a friend.

The hotel needs to get things figured out. We had a drink in lobby bar first when we tried to go up to Sparrow at 5:05 for our 5:00 reservation, we were told that there weren't open yet and we would have to wait 15 minutes. We were told to go have another drink in lobby and then we could dump our drinks into paper cups before we headed up. Unacceptable, we had already cashed out and had been in lobby bar for over an hour.

The outdoor area needs improvement. It is too hot for no fans up there. The outdoors looks nice but no air movement. The service was pleasant and very accommodating.

The view is awesome. Food is limited to appetizers Service was poor. I guess because gratuity is already added in. It becomes like the south beach scene at 10 pm. With lines and all. Nice for hanging out and music. On the younger side !!

We had reservations for dinner but left after cocktails. For a restaurant that boasts a rooftop view, it's sad that when you go out on the terrace to see the view, it disappears as soon as you sit down. Why not just have bar height tables so you could enjoy the view?
The cocktail I had was well made and the waitress was very pleasant. We ordered the popcorn to have with our cocktails and it was a small bowl of "out of a bag" very salty popcorn. We decided to leave before having dinner.

New rooftop in Fort Lauderdale!! I love the ambiance and I love that it also has indoor seating. Based on the reviews, this seems like an night club however I met some girlfriends here for a early dinner. Drinks were good, I had the violet however, the food was not the best. Like I said, maybe this is more of a lounge spot.... not for dinner.

The food was great, we tried many items on the menu and nothing disappointed. On the other hand, the bar situation was not pleasant. The outside and inside bar have different drinks and will not make drinks from each other's menus. The bar did not have the appropriate ice for the drink my friends and I wanted and refused to make the drink for us. The bartenders also took way to long to even introduce themselves to us even though the bar was not full by any means. The staff, in general, was stuck up and not friendly.

Very South Beach - it’s beautifully decorated and the view is special. Tapas menu. We shared a few things and they were quite good. Especially enjoyed the fried potato chips and chicken skewers. The staff generally exhibits a sense of “we’re all very cool” as does much of the clientele. Seems that they want to be the place to be seen. Nothing bad about that - it’s just the model. If you like this vibe and $20 martinis with $7 (validated) parking, this is your place.
