Restaurant wasn’t completely full but moderately busy. Wait time for service on water, drinks and even the check was extremely long and the food was only “okay.”

There was a group that was extremely loud and rude. Everyone was complaining and the manager asked them multiple times to please be quiet....and they never did. Disappointing that management was concerned about ruining the experience of one table (6-7 people) at the expense of the rest of the guests (50-60 people). Very disappointing!

The Penthouse is definitely a favorite. Whether it be happy hour, brunch or a celebration dinner (which this was) the food and service is always so good. Thanks for another great experience!

Took 50 minutes to get our simple drink orders to the table. Inattentive staff and a manager that didn’t seem to care we were being ignored.

Everything was great, executive wine list was a bonus. Only complaint - felt bad for the tables in middle of room - a little crowded together, hard to have conversation. We however, enjoyed a lovely window table!

Sad that the curtain was broken and wouldn't raise. That really would have helped towards bettering the ambiance.

The view especially during sunset is beautiful. The staff was very friendly, the food and drinks were fantastic. We originally had a reservation in the main dining room but opted to sit in the lounge area in one of the private booths. Our only hiccup was the very table next to us with very loud patrons. The management was sympathetic to our concern and was very kind to buy us a round of drinks. Eventually they left and we enjoyed the rest of our evening. Would definitely come back

The food and service were outstanding, the only thing that bothered us was that it was pretty crowded and noisy, people gathered around the bar and waiting areas, large parties' celebrations etc. I guess everyone wants to share the great food, location and views. We will come again!
