    The kitchen brought us fried chicken that was raw and had blood in it. Then the staff showed poor customer service in repairing the situation. They of course said that we could order something else, but I would’ve expected some compensation outside of obviously not charging us for the raw food (possibly a drink or dessert for free). And when I asked for something to be complimentary due to the poor service, they said no and also charged us a 20% gratuity fee which goes against what is on their site which says: “Gratuity: 20% gratuity is required on all groups of 6 or more.” This was an incredibly poor experience and I would never go back to this establishment.

    The website says for brunch there is a brunch buffet. That's the main reason why I came and when I get there I was told the buffet went away two years ago do to covid but they have not updated the website. I was there with three other people and we were charged $100 gratuity. The pictures showed a nice view of the lake when eating on the roof and when I got there the lake looks more like the dirty water from braes bayou. I don't feel like for the price you are giving enough food.

    Outstanding experience at The Roof. The New York strip was really good. My girlfriend enjoyed the pork chop. Will be back again. Will check out the live music on the weekend. Really like this spot.

    Entering the building there is a stench of plumbing smell. The glass door to the entrance was not clean. The windows was not clean. There were burnt out light bulbs to the lighting fixtures. The water bottles were not poured. I had to pour my own. Found a piece of cork or foreign bedris in the glass...my guess it came from the reused water bottles. The vent ducking had piles of dust accumulated. The outdoor patio furniture is dilapidated. There was paint chips on the wall. The waiter and host was very nice. Decided to go somewhere else. It can be a beautiful place to be, but need some TLC. Attention to detail. I did not eat here. The survey will not let me continue if I did not answered this question. I here the food is very good. Pricey for a poorly kept restaurant.

    Initially when we arrived the hostess was not welcoming, she was very flat and responded to all of our questions with an attitude. For example: my husband stated hi we have reservations for 9pm and she asked what’s the name. No you mean you have a 9:15 reservation. We then were seating about 9:20 which was not bad. The waiter was very slow, no energy, had a bad attitude, trued to engage him in conversation etc. couldn’t recommend cute drinks aesthetically or popular drinks on the menu. Food came out at 1030pm at that time the waitor only came over once when me husband called for him to say the food would be out soon. At that point he asked for it to be boxes up. N which he brought out the cold food with a container for us to box it up. 18% gratuity included for poor service. Do not expect a fine dining experience at all. Search on social media for better places to frequent with better food, vibes, and customer experience. Only plus is free parking.

    It took along time before our order was taken. The steak was so tough, I just couldn't cut it so after about 3 times of trying to cut it I just gave up and did not eat the steak. The rest of the meal was good and seasoned well. I eat A-1 sauce with my steak and the waiter said they did not have any. My husband drinks lemonade with his dinner and the waiter said they did not have that either. 1. Too long to put order in 2. Steak too tough 3. No A-1 sauce 4. No lemonade

    Service was slow took at least 20 minutes before anyone even brought us waters. The steaks were not even closed to cooked the way we ordered and we were charged a 20% gratuity on bad service. Would definitely not go back.

    I had never tried The Roof, so set up reservations for Valentine's Day. The menu was a fixed 4 course menu. The food was good, particularly the corn and crab bisque. However, I felt very rushed. My salad was brought out before my drink order was filled. I was about halfway through with the salad when the soup was brought. I mentioned that the courses seemed very rushed to my server, who said it was Valentine's Day. The soup was a small cup, ideal for the second course, with the traditional crab shell in it. Once I took out the crab shell, I had about half a cup of soup (perfect). I had eaten only half of that, though, when my entree arrived, and the server took my remaining soup. The snapper was well cooked and quite good. I was left alone with it for a bit longer. I asked for a substitute dessert (bananas do not belong in bread pudding) because I did not like the one on the four course menu and they obliged (there is no difference in dessert prices and all the desserts were on the menu a la carte), but the server made sure to deliver a message from the kitchen that they were doing me a big favor. They had no coffee, apparently cocktails only, and no wine, which I thought was a little odd. All in all, good food but a quirky experience.

    We came because they advertised Friday $25 lamp chops. We live in the area and wanted a quick lil dinner. They were out of several appetizers we wanted. I was charged full price for the lamb chops and had to have him adjust the ticket. Now, the food was GOOD. My husband had the salmon and cleaned his plate. Same for me the lamb chops were good. I’d go again maybe for brunch

    We had an early reservation 5:30pm ( they opened at 5pm) we had a comedy show afterwards. The food was delicious, nice sized portions our server RJ was great, knowledgeable and speedy. My only complaint would be of the restrooms, the cleanliness could have been better and cocktail napkins were provided to dry my hands (quirks that bothered me). Not sure how long they’ve been open, however I desire a better ambiance in the future. The location is nice / evening patio is beautiful. It gave a generic “upscale” feel (if that makes sense). Like entry/ bar area gave Eddie V’s but bathroom and tableware Casa Ole lol. But again, the food was good and we would go again. And they do automatically put a 20% gratuity for ALL parties but RJ deserved that and we gave more.

    I really had high hopes for this place. The ambiance and decor were really cute. However, when one of my friends’ drinks came back to our table with BUGS in it, I just about lost it. We were also the only people in the restaurant which was awkward.The food is WAY too expensive for what you get. The service was fine. But you can’t call yourself “fine dining” and give us a drink with bugs in it. Definitely find another restaurant to try instead of this one! Would not recommend.

    This was our second visit to the Roof and the first visit was a good experience. However this time the experience was underwhelming. Our server was nice but it was a long wait for him to return with anything. The place was by no means crowded, so having to wait was baffling. We came for their Wednesday special but one of the items they offered on the special the either ran out of or was no longer available, to my disappointment because that's why we came back. This place has such great potential, but they could use some assistance in getting there.

    My first dining experience at The Roof for brunch was terrible!!!! The lobster tail for the lobster crab Benedict was overcooked and fried too hard. The grits, chicken and waffles were cold, the chicken breasts were overcooked and dry, and one of the waffles was burned. We spoke to the acting manager DD and he didn’t have a pleasant attitude, didn’t ask what could be done to make things right, and he disappeared for approximately 20-30 minutes and didn’t return to our table until after we asked three servers for him to come back to tell us how the issue would be addressed. Very disappointed with the quality of the food and customer service!!!

    We went to the roof for dinner prior to going to the Smart Financial Center for a show. We arrived just as they were opening. Overall, we had a nice dinner. I had the fried chicken and my wife had the the pasta dish with shrimp. We also had the kale caesar and fried calamari The staff were very friendly and attentive. The ambiance was quite nice and it was quiet. The food was good, but over priced and they added a 20% gratuity so don’t add more to the tip unless they deserve it. There is also a non cash surcharge of $3.75. All of this cost $120. I think that was high for a pasta bowl and some fried chicken and no alcohol.

    We went to the Roof because it looked like a good place and the ambiance might have been but the service was terrible and the food was ok. I love the location and atmosphere but we waited to be served at least 30 minutes and no one ever came by to ask us if we wanted refills. The wine glasses were dirty and the wine was sour from the bottle being opened too long. The food was expensive but some of the food was cold and did not have the standard it should have for a $48 plate. Sorry to say we won't be going back.

    I took my wife there on a Tuesday night which was $20.00 steaks and chops night, and I must say the rib-eye was pretty good there were mashed potatoes and asparagus which were also tasty, we're planning on going back on a Thursday night they have a live jazz band on that night, overall I like this place.
