Great space for a business meeting. Not loud. Prompt service. Overpriced just like everything in NY. Food was your basic “fancy flatbread” (pizza) and other bar food. Would definitely come here again though. They were very accommodating when I had a larger party than originally planned.

The welcome was not great, we wandered around until a staff member directed us to a table. The request of high top seating was ignored and had to be reiterated.

The food was excellent, and would come back for the food.

Whilst Versa is physically a ‘rooftop restaurant’ I think it’s stretching the definition of a NY rooftop restaurant when the hotel has 30+ floors and this was on floor 5 - it was most disappointing to find we did not have a view of the Manhattan skyline as a rooftop restaurant would have suggested.

Only if the service gets better. Took forever to order and/or get noticed and it wasn't busy in the slightest.

We were very pleased with our meal, and dessert was amazing! Prices did things like burgers are a lot, but hey - it’s NYC, so that’s expected.
Only complaint was that we looked up the menu online prior to going, and the menu wasn’t the same...so we had our appetites set on meals we couldn’t order. Other than that, we loved everything.

We enjoyed a long, leisurely lunch in a comfortable surrounding with excellent food and a very attentive staff. Versa provided the perfect place to dine and spend time with friends. We were comfortable, not rushed and accommodated in every way.

The server wasn’t very efficient, she never once checked with us to ask if everything was okay or if we needed anything else. The food was very good but the drinks were watered down. My daughter got the sangria and she said it tasted like fruit juice, they were loaded with ice.

It is a versatile space with 2 indoor bars, restaurant area, and an outdoor patio. We moved between all 3 spaces. We were able to have great conversation as the more crowded bar was separated from the dining area. The food was great,arrived quickly.The bartender was short and seemed in a rush, overall seemed annoyed and our waitress was not very friendly.

We had two meals at Versa, breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was excellent in terms of both the food and the service. We had dinner that evening and the service was spotty at best, long waits between courses and one of our items never arrived. The dinner menu is ambitious but the execution of each individual item was lacking.

My wife and three kids (11 and under) went to Versa for an early Saturday dinner. The staff was very accommodating to our needs (nothing special, just - you know - three kids). The room was nice - half the dining room is open air. The hosts and wait staff were friendly; the service was timely and accurate. Our meals were not so good. Our most satisfied customer was the 6 year old who order a grilled cheese and fries. Two kids pizzas were mushy and nuclear hot. I ordered a "Louisiana style" chicken sandwich. It was a decent amount of chicken bathed and fried in an UNREASONABLE AMOUNT OF BATTER. Whatever was supposed to make it "Louisiana style" was not evident - unless they were referring to the wilted pickle chips that seemed more like an afterthought that anything. My wife ordered a kale salad that she enjoyed. Including beverages (a beer, a cocktail, and three kids' drinks), the $150 price tag for the affair was a little much notwithstanding the NYC zip code. I would have gotten a better quality meal at a lower cost at the food court across the street.

Overall, it was okay. It's a nice room and the staff was great but not everything on the menu is a winner.

Perfect place for an after show meal. Wait staff was attentive, food was good and not overly priced. Do like their no straw policy, but the My Boy Blue drink comes in a unique fish shaped carafe and it is difficult to drink out of it.

Really classy atmosphere! Prices were what you'd expect for New York City, and the food was good, though the portions could have been bigger. The service was excellent though. It was early in the morning so maybe this is why it wasn't, but I wish seating on the actual rooftop part had been set up. The bathrooms were clean, but the cleaning chemicals smelled really bad.

good for breakfast, with a lot of variety at reasonable prices (for a hotel restaurant). The service, however, was inconsistent at best. We were trying to wrap up a business meeting in order to get to our next one and the wait staff was nowhere to be found.

Services are okay. Food was goood! Had a great time and loved the restaurant. The waiters were not attentive and came over 4 times in total (to order drinks, food, checked up once, then gave us bill). That’s fine but not for what we paid. Other waiters had to wait on us.

Unless you get the rooftop patio or underneath the skylight, the rest of the seating area is average. Our waiter wasn't very attentive. I've asked for water a couple of times but he never came back. The drinks are watered down a lot so they aren't worth it. Only really worth it if you get the rooftop patio or underneath the skylight.

We shared some tasty appetizers. Service wasn’t on point. We waited over ten minutes before asking for our server. She never showed up but the gentleman who i asked took our order instead. She never came to ask about a second round of drinks until far too long. We were ready for the check by then. The gentleman who did take our order was very very good. Also we had to sit inside, even though i made reservations in advance so we could sit outside on the rooftop area.

Lindsay was a delight to have as our sever. It was my mother’s birthday and she ensured we were very well taking care of and my mom enjoyed herself.

Food was great, drinks was great, overall the perfect experience for a birthday brunch before a spa day. Thank you for the great service!
