We’re at downstairs but decided to go up to check it out since friends are out of town. It was great but abit windy and abit cool. The view was very nice but the services was slow since they’re overwhelmed, it tools about 30mins before someone took our orders - glad that we took drinks downstairs with us.

Beautiful view. Awesome drinks. Great hosts. Server was annoying and didn’t really serve us much. We always had to request for his attention, which was annoying because we had a big party. And he was only serving two tables at the time. I understand the gratuity charge for parties of 5-6 or more, but they also made us pay extra tax for their employees health insurance ? That was on our bill, like wtf ? They aren’t our employees, and we are consumers. An establishment should pay or provide their employees enough to have heath insurance or provide them benefits than automatically forcing their consumers to pay for it on their bill. Other than that- food was good- but they don’t tell you the full menu is only for downstairs dining so for my friends birthday we were very disappointed of the limited menu for the rooftop. For the food and price - not worth it. And definitely not worth the service - but the patio on the rooftop is still a nice place to hang out and just have a drink or two. But will not be dining on their rooftop anymore. Or having any more celebrations there

it is a great place to just sit back, relax and chat with a frend. something little to eat, and have a drink, not actually to have a lunch or dinner with the family. hahaha

Everything was great. The bartender was a little short with me when I went up to order but it didn’t damper our experience. When I went to order my food and drinks, she continued to look away and do what she was doing, not fully acknowledging me, but everything turned out great.

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. 👍🏽👍🏽

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.
