Great view and service. Food is good. A bit on the pricey side. Cocktails are all $20+.

I went to the Rooftop by JG for my boyfriend's birthday; overall, the service and ambiance were excellent, the food good. Our waitress, Harmony, was kind and provided us blankets, moved a heat lamp, and sent along a complimentary chocolate cake slice without me requesting one. Overall, these extra touches and the exceptional view made the night one to remember :)

Lots of heaters and blankets made the 50 degree weather bearable and the view is amazing. They have changed the menu a bit and the portions have become smaller but it is still an awesome location. Really annoyed about the valet parking now at $20 with validation. That is ridiculous.

Absolutely wonderful place for lunch! There's simply no other restaurant in Los Angeles with a view like this, and I love the outdoor bar area with comfortable couch seating and totally cool music playing. Oh yes, and the food was good too!

Setting and view are pretty but food is so overpriced it is ridiculous ($15 to add chicken to a Cobb salad!). Portions are very small. Parking is $20 with a validation. Absurd.

This is the most beautiful restaurant I’ve been to in Los Angeles. The price of the validated parking unfortunately is over the top. The food is good. But the view is the stand out. It would be a wonderful place to go for drinks with friends.

Everything was great except we ordered sunny side up eggs and they came folded with a fully cooked yolk. Server forgot my lemonade and waited approx 15 min to get the check.

Even though it was a chilly day, you accommodated us with 2 heaters on either side of our table with really the most spectacular PANORAMA view of Beverly Hills . The surprise was that the sun came out from behind the clouds and we really were so warm sitting , outdoors on the rooftop, that we put the heater on the LOW setting. Your server was friendly, informed us about each item , we selected from the menu, refilled our water and coffee as needed. He even took our camera and took several souvenir snapshots of my guests and myself. Thank you for making our " Brunch/Lunch on the Rooftop " such a wonderful Holiday Experience.

Love the Rooftop by JG and the weather plained nicely into our plans this year.
As always - great service and pretty good food.
If anything we were surprised that its becoming hard to find anything on the menu that is not rather spicy. guess thats the fashion these days.

Love the view.
Driskel was awesome because he brought a blanket.
They forgot about us twice (we had to ask to order, twice)
They forgot one of my husband’s drinks
They did not offer us a heating lamp, but moved one over for another couple sitting close by (without prompts)
Food was delicious, but we definitely expect more for the high-end nature of this establishment.
This particular experience was lack luster.

It was good up until you guys removed the heater from us and settled it next to someone who already had a heater. My date started freezing which pushed for us to leave sooner. I’m pretty disappointed

I've been to the Rooftop several times for special occasions - and last night we gathered for a holiday celebration with old friends... an annual tradition. However, it was too pricey for the experience. The food was small portions, and not that impressive for the price. The cocktails were OUTLANDISHLY expensive - 25 dollars for a SMALL drink. Really silly. Plus add 13 dollars for valet... and the evening cost more than it was worth. That said - the view is UNBEATABLE. Maybe a better place for an expense account.

Was in town to see Cyndi Lauper's fundraising event 'Home for the Holidays.' The view on the Rooftop of the WA at JG was breathtaking. Words can not do it justice. It was recommended by the hostess at the Peninsula Hotel as we booked our 5PM afternoon tea, and the ambiance, staff, and 'THE VIEW' surpassed any expectations we had. I would definitely return and recommend to anyone visiting the area. We only spend twenty minutes there for a cocktail at sunset, and I would love to stay longer next time. It was very relaxing. The cocktails were a bit pricy, and surprisingly worth it for the experience.

I have to say, I've eaten at MANY JG restaurants in NYC, and I have dined at the Rooftop at least three times before. This particular visit was not the best by a long shot. I was seated on time, but ended up waiting 15 minutes for someone to greet my table. My server, who was pleasant enough, took my order, but failed to follow up on my entree wine pairing until I was practically finished with the meal. He asked if I wanted the wine and I said yes thinking it would be on the house. It was not. To top it off, the lobster burger was not the best version of theirs that I've had before. Hopefully, just an off night, but when you spend over $120 for a dinner per person, there are a few things you expect to get right. Besides top notch dining and drink options, service is typically five stars at any JG restaurant--especially his Manhattan Perry St. and Nougatine restaurants. These are both standard setters to say the least.

The rooftop view is spectacular--you won't be disappointed! I'm not giving up just yet on the Rooftop by JG and neither should you.

Small portions unless you get the burger. The view is beautiful, come around sunset and you get the best of both worlds.

Beautiful views. Server was great. We had to move tables due to sun heat, and this seemed to be a bit confusing for staff. Food was good, potatoes were incredible! Valet is $17 with restaurant validation:-) Overall, worth every penny!!

Worst dinner ever. There was no sex to the food. It was plain and dumb. IHOP has more character.
