We didn’t realize how cold it would be outside. They gave me a blanket but still very chilly. The heaters needed better coverage. Food and wine were great as was service. Highly recommended in good weather.

Everything was great! Checked in for our reservation on time and seated right way. View here is unbelievable. Tip-Better to have a small party 2-3 people so you can get the edge tables by the glass.
It was chilly out and our server brought us cute little blankets and they went above and beyond to make sure the heat lamps were going and that we were comfortable.
The food was outstanding. We had a large party so we pretty much tried everything and nothing disappointed. My favorite was the sesame crusted asparagus and the egg plant Parmesan. Also make sure to ask if you need it-they have a special vegan menu!

Nice ambiance with a beautiful view of the city. On a chilly night definitely request a table by the fireplace. Crispy fish tacos and grass fed burger were delicious, also love the fries. A casual night for three people, a bunch of appetizers and two bottles of wine is easily $600. Service is very friendly and accommodating.

This Waldorf Astoria rooftop bar is wonderful and has amazing L.A. views. Even among all of the great places on the west side and in Beverly Hills, it really is a special place. One feels really free in this beautiful setting.

We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch at The Rooftop by JG. It was wonderful. From start to finish the ambiance, the wait-staff, the food and wine all made for a memorable experience. Celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary we couldn’t have picked a better spot to enjoy lunch. Definitely recommend and will be back .

$29 hamburger was a disappointment - just ok. Lobster sandwich the same. Best thing we ordered was crunchy eggplant Parmesan - very good. Ambience excellent. Have been there 3 times. Probably will not go again.

I visit the Rooftop about every 4-6 weeks and this is my first visit that was not absolutely perfect. The service was not as excellent as it normally has been and most unfortunately I had to send one of the dishes back to the kitchen. I ordered the calamari and it was soggy. Our waitress took it off our bill which I appreciate but I was surprised because on all other visits, the food has been wonderful.

In as much as the view and setting are magnificent, the food doesn't come close.
The service was beyond outstanding, however sitting at a freezing bar with no heater
should be addressed.

We ordered just appetizers when we were seated to sample all the offerings, but at over $100 per person that simply wasn't worth the coin.

We went with 7 people and the service was great at first. Once I got my Waygu steak it was rare instead of medium rare so i returned it. I pretty much ate when everyone else was done with their meals. I also disliked that they couldn’t separate the bill to 7 because the waitress claimed they couldn’t keep track of who ordered what so maybe that was our fault. This was probably my 5th time here and maybe they had an off day? Either way the ambience is nice and the view is superb.

The view and ambiance could not have been better. Service was very pleasantly perfect! The food was good, very expensive for casual bites. Wine by the glass and cocktails were good but really expensive. I would go there for the view and ambiance and expect for it to cost you.

We had a great night. It is an experience.

Unfortunate, due to shortages, 12% of the menu had avocados - which were unavailable. As well as watercress, which was unavailable. You'd think at a place like this, they'd be a little more nimble in the kitchen.

Ambience was awesome. The views were terrific! Beautiful hotel and rooftop. Vincent was our server and was cordial and knowledge. Just one note, one of our guests had a sesame allergy and expressed it. We ordered the lobster burger and it came on a sesame bun which we didn't know. No harm. Would go back just for the view.

I had been here with friends for lunch and loved the food and ambiance. Brought my family back for drinks on the couches by the bar, followed by dinner. It was a gorgeous evening to have dinner under the stars and the food did not disappoint. Highly recommend the lobster burger! Wine is over-priced, so bring your own if you can. Other than that, this gets a big “thumbs up”.

It was mediocre at best! The place and the view are out of this world! Absolutely wonderful! The rest of the experience was truly mediocre, from the parking to the hostess at the restaurant etc... very very disappointed! We usually go to the Jean George restaurant in NY and this is an embarrassment to his name... Same goes to the Waldorf Hotel...

Rooftop view of Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Sumptuously intoxicating and spectacular views Living in Beverly Hills has its advantages I can come here anytime. And if I could I would. It’s very fun festive and lots of fun people end up there. You can’t go wrong the food is good. Some dishes great some good. My fish taco was GOOD
Should’ve had a crispy shell but the taste of everything on the inside was out of this world.

This is a 5 star venue with a 5 star view of Beverly Hills and the surrounding communities. The view is, in my opinion, the best in the Beverly Hills area. The prices are on the steep side but it's worth it for a special treat with an incredible view. Can't speak to the quality of the food (even though the app made me rate the food) - but the martinis are great and the view is unbeatable. Friendly staff....I can imagine this place is a scene at night. I was there during the early part of happy hour and it was busy but not mobbed. Worth the splurge.
