Beautiful view and ambience but those are the only positive attributes. We were asked to give a credit card when we ordered which is tacky and offensive. This is a restaurant not a pool bar on spring break. It was all downhill from there. Food selection was limited and overpriced. It was pretty basic tasting and small portions.

The NoMad's online menu for the roof is not what they offer on the weekend. That version was a great brunch menu. We would have gone elsewhere if the actual menu of about 9 items were publicly available to view. What can you say about a place that basically only offers oysters, a couple of crudo's and three versions of hamburger, vegan, beef or fowl? Meh.

Service was horrible I had to constantly look for the waiter to order he would never check on our table. The food took forever to arrive and when it did it was incomplete and they did nothing to fix it. Horrible horrible service

The service was extremely slow and unprofessional, and it was difficult to get the waiters attention. It took 45 mins for the food to come out. The staff was inappropriate and creepy. Menu was short, basic and overpriced. The food was bad. The entire experience was a disappointment.

Overall it was nice & quaint, probably a little too subdued for us, Better atmosphere for a date. The ceviche was super delish but not worth paying $22 for it. It was all gone in less then 5 spoonfuls. $12-$15 would be more fare for the dish. Still it was very tasty, I liked the flavors. The drinks were really good, well priced and I was buzzed off the first drink. đŸ‘đŸœđŸ‘đŸœ

Yes, but not the best experience you can find in Downtown LA. It's definitely not bad, you can have a drink and some bites by the pool for sunset, it's nice but globally, a pretty forgettable experience... I would rather recommend to have a drink at the "regular" NoMad bar.

Went here with a group of girlfriends for drinks and food and a view of LA. The drinks were pretty good, with expected high prices. The food was another story. We were appalled that the $15 guacamole and chips came out with what could not have been more than 1 avocado worth of guacamole. Literally, we dove in and we’re shocked by how fast our chips hit the bottom of the plate (we thought it was an illusion and it was deep). But nope, someone took a knife and smeared a thin layer of guacamole on a plate. We tried getting more chips at least, but don’t think for a second that’s on the house, another $3! Anyways, by this point we were so upset about the food situation we left after one drink.

Made a reservation weeks in advance they stopped the music and had a huge disruption with kids and film crews hear they do this a lot and say nothing to guests it’s a great spot but they don’t put guests or their experiences first over film money

Food was pretty good. The rooftop is just ok, not a lot of shaded areas, so it got a bit warm, and it's pretty small, with a mediocre view of all the other roofs in downtown. I took a friend there for her birthday, made of note of that in the reservation, but I think they either didn't notice, or just forgot. I would've been nice if they had wished her a happy birthday. Service was a little slow also.
