Westlight, a 22nd-floor rooftop bar with sweeping views of New York City, sits atop The William Vale in Williamsburg. Chef Andrew Carmellini pairs a playful menu of bar snacks with a list of handcrafted classic cocktails, rare spirits, beer and wine. Floor-to-ceiling windows surround the bar and interior lounge, with outdoor seating on the wrap-around balcony and 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline.

The place was amazing as well as Mantahttan view. Foods were delicious. People were polite and professional. I went there with my guests. They loved like me. We left from West Light happy. So, I hardly recommended this place.

Unfassbarer Ausblick, freundlicher und aufmerksamer Service. Cocktailpreise für die Leistung leider nicht angemessen. Selten so schlechte Drinks gehabt. Schade. Das Publikum kommt aber für den Ausblick. Erlebnis war schon einmalig. Wie auch unser Besuch.

Great views over Brooklyn and Manhattan. The cocktails were good, food only tried the cheesecake and was great, but could be bigger! Prices according to the area, not cheap but it worths it.

They had a live band playing on Monday. Volume too loud for the space. Impossible to hear people sitting right next to you.

Amazing panoramic views . Small plate menu each one good for two to share . Unique cocktails. Also can go outside and experience the view. Would definitely go again .

Great hip spot with beautiful view. Only issue is that the small plates are a tad too small for the price

On a Sunday lunch there was only one cook in the kitchen. It was a big disappointment.

The view is the true star of this place (especially at night). No matter what you get to eat or drink, seeing the whole city panorama is an amazing experience!

Outstanding views of NYC. Service was great. Expect a lot of people moving around to take pictures of the city if you’re sitting near the edge of the restaurant. Food was very good.

My mom and I came for a relaxed night with a view for my birthday and it was wonderful and exactly what we were looking for. Everyone was so kind and I would definitely return.

I would not recommend dining there. Our service was abysmal, but the view was amazing. A drink on the roof is highly recommended.

The place is absolutely wonderful, as the food ! The service is nice but a little bit too pushy. I mean the waiters do not wait at all to take the empty plates or the empty glass so we have the feeling they want us to leave quickly. Which is not nice when you spend more than $130 with 3 drinks and few tapas.

The view is outstanding! The food is excellent and I love that they change up the menu offerings. The cocktails with a connection to BK history are also a very cool feature of the current menu. We had a perfect night here!

The tapas were great but the drinks were terrible. The cocktails tasted extremely tart with an over abundance of juice and a lot of liquor. Not balanced at all. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and they did nothing to make it special which was disappointing. Only highlight of the evening were the views of the city.

A great place to go with friends, and such an amazing view! Friendly and accommodating staff - I mentioned we were there for my friend's birthday, and they sang and brought out complimentary glasses of champagne for the table. Will definitely come back.
