Chose Versa because of the great location 2 blocks from Madison Square Garden. Had dinner there before Billy Joel concert. Restaurant is on the 5th floor of the Renaissance hotel. Listed as a rooftop restaurant, it was too cold to eat outdoors, but still it had a definite outdoorsy vibe. Interesting menu - ordered 3 apps for our group - Tuna Tatare, Cheese Pizza and Bruchetta - each one was great. Main dishes were equally good. Could use 1 or 2 more vegan options - the only one was a veggie burger but otherwise a very nice experience.

Brunch on a Sunday. I was disappointed to see 10:15 and 11:45 were the only available times to book at, before or after. When we walked in the place was empty leaving our desired 11.00 very much available. Was disappointed since we could have used those extra 45 minutes in our day and they would have easily been able to accommodate.

We had a very nice pre Rangers game dinner. The food was delish, and service attentive without being bothersome. Good value for a restaurant in this area. Highly recommend it.

The food was below average and the service was terrible. There are much better breakfast spots in NYC. Don’t bother with this.

Nice place to catch a quick business lunch. It was a very cold January day so it was a little chilly in the restaurant. Plan on visiting when the weather is warm and we can take advantage of their retractable roof. That's gotta be great.

Versa is a terrific hot spot. The rooftop space is very cool, and the food and service are excellent. It's a good choice for late night dining, as well.

Nicely appointed place with a nice view. Service competent and attentive. Food standard fare presented nicely. Main dining area has no booths, which is odd.

With a great location, I had high hopes for this restaurant. But the noise level was SO HIGH, and tje food and service so average, I can't rave about it. At $100+ for two drinks, one entree, two appetizers. and two coffees, it was hardly a steal.

New Years Eve dinner so pretty noisy and busy. Service fantastic and food great despite being so busy. Gluten free options available and both our burgers were spot on. Odd decision to put honey on a pizza which made it far too sweet for our tastes. Shame. Otherwise a great meal.

Busy, energetic place! Great social atmosphere. Ample staff, always taken care of. Really enjoyed the Korean style wings and the buratta appetizers. Really enjoyed that we never felt rushed and so we stuck around for another round of cocktails. Would love to come back in warmer weather.

My daughter and I were visiting NYC and wanted a nice rooftop experience for breakfast. We made a reservation for brunch and upon arriving we realized that we weren’t going to have the rooftop experience that we had hoped for. The hostesses greeted us and told us there was a wait but they’d have us in by our reservation time. They did offer us a high top table but I had already indicated on the Open Table app that we didn’t want that. They told us we could relax in the lounge and they would call us when the table was ready, so we did. However thirty almost minutes went by with no call or text so we went downstairs. There were no hostesses at their station. After a couple of minutes and a few glares from staff through the windows we were seated in the dining room. We were served but the waitress never came back to check on us. I needed fresh coffee and would’ve ordered a mimosa from the bar but was never asked if we wanted or needed anything else. Finally another waitress came to take our plates rather
abruptly and we asked for the check. Another waitress brought us our bill and never came back for it so we left it on the table. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Very poor service and an average meal.

Great space, we were there early and they accommodated us with our 5 and 3 year old. The kids chicken breast was inedible and I should have said something and the dumplings were not good with some questionable textures in the meat. But it’s a good spot if you’re going to MSG and don’t want to travel far with kids.

This place is fine. We reserved for brunch assuming it would be as fabulous as the pictures show. Food was mediocre, service was slow, and we were not at the reserved "high top" rather a table between two other families. Not worth the reservation when there are so many other locations to check out nearby.

I very rarely write a negative review but this restaurant included two things that were a huge problem. First, poor service. The restaurant had no more than 5-6 tables occupied and yet we had to flag down our server several times. Second, the ladies room was dirty and half the stalks had no paper. This restaurant needs a new manager.

Everything was fine except for the service. The service was extremely slow, however the waitress was very nice. I feel as if they were short on wait staff so I don’t want to blame my waitress if there was a shortage of staff. I think it took my table about 20-30 min to order our food.

Food was pretty good and service was very good. They should not advertise as a rooftop if they are going to make you sit inside behind a curtain! Very disappointing!

The service was great Shantell was the server. Her attention was great, she makes you feel welcome. On the other hand menu I feel like it was limited, need to update the menu and add other choices of mains. I ordered the Versa Nachos, that was too salty but I ate because I was hungry. Then I ordered the Applewood bacon cheddar burger, that was way too salty, I took two bites and became so thirsty couldn’t stop drinking water. I told Shantell about it and she calmly came and took the plate and asked me if I wanted to order something else, at that point I was fed up with the salty and didn’t feel like eating anymore. I did noticed a few other people with the same issue. I was given a discount because of what happened and I appreciated that. But it Looks like something should be addressed. Other than that It was really nice. The ambiance, the decor, the drinks were good too. They even offered a free desert because of what happened. I would recommend still, I might come back, hoping they fixed the salt problem.

VERSA was a perfect place for a dinner meeting. Located right by Penn and MSG.

Food was great, waitress was exceptional!
