We love the rooftop, we wish they would take over the Mint spot and have a real wood fire pizza restaurant space with better cocktails.

We enjoyed a meal before leaving our son for college. We went primarily because it was a nice hotel that had a rooftop restaurant. It was fun to see from the street and our curiosity is why we made a reservation. It's a cool hang out if you don't mind spending a little extra for the ambiance. We all bought our own pizza's and were happy with how fresh and flavorful they were. I was excited about the homemade chips and French onion dip - but there is definitely room for improvement there. I would go back - because it is cool and I liked the vibe. Our wait staff was fine, but overall the staff from the reception desk (stopped in to get a room but hotel was booked), to the host at the Rooftop Terrace are some of the least friendly people we have met during our three weekends in La Crosse. I don't know if they are trying to have a certain 'air' about them ... to be pretentious, but it really isn't necessary - you can have a classy place, and treat people like your happy to see them at the same time. (or maybe they are all just really unhappy to work there). I was glad our table reservation went through though and we didn't have any issues in that regard. Views are good, but could be better with glass walls or railing, I had to stand on my tip toes to get a peak over the side. Otherwise it is more like sitting in a room without a ceiling.

Beautiful views of bluffs and downtown Lacrosse. The perfect place to watch sunset. Casual atmosphere not very specific seating. It was pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Beautiful boutique hotel in a picturesque downtown. Service was excellent! Very attentive servers that were efficient but not pushy or rushing you out. Highly recommend the rooftop bar! It is not very big, but it is very nice! Great place to go! Can't wait to go back!

It was very crowed with tables and chairs almost right on top of each other and absolutely no room to navigate between people standing around. It would be much more pleasant to have fewer tables with fewer people, which would also help cut with the noise. We can only imagine what it must be like on a wknd! Pizza was okay but small. Not neccisarily a place we would recommend to others.

Elevator was broken. We didn't mind trekking up to the roof, but our online reservation, which we had confirmed, was LOST!

No table for two, and just the offer to join a large table of strangers and other empty seats.

This was a massive disappointment, but even had our seats been there, the place seemed loud and crowded. We went back to a nicer river-based outdoor eating site.

The server was very attentive. The wood-fired pizza was quick and delicious. Our pitcher of Peach Sangria was not very peachy and the chunks of peaches were obviously canned. Maybe just a glass of it would have been more flavorful. However, we still drank it all. :)

Sitting atop the lovely Charmant hotel with views of the Mississippi River and the Bluffs the Rooftop Terrace is a great place to sip a cocktail under the stars. We went after a concert in Riverside Park which is right across the street. We ordered 2 pizzas and some wine for a nice visit with friends.

My go-to for fresh air, Bluff views, delicious wood-fired pizza (ask for extra crispy) and steak (the best in town). Combined with friendly, attentive service (thank you Abby, Jessie, George, Luna and others), the Charmant Rooftop Terrace is a downtown La Crosse gem of find.
