Went with a date on a colder spring night and we were sitting inside. They had us sitting under an air conditioning vent in the corner. Our first waitress was able to turn the air off but 30 minutes later it turned back on, and we were unable to get it turned back off. My date had to wear her winter jacket for the rest of the evening due to the frigid temperatures. Towards the end of the night I was also freezing. The servers never checked in with us once the air turned back on and it ruined what had the potential to be a nice evening. I would not recommend this place unless you want to pretend you are out to eat in an igloo.

Indoor experience: Out of flavored vodka options, though they have three pages worth of alcohol menus. Still on their winter cocktails and only 5 to choose from. Food options are basic, minimal, and lack luster. The only thing worth going to this “restaurant” for is the outdoor views. That is it.

Amazing views, all quite good with two exceptions: no draft beer and lack of care for sustainability. Instead of asking if the customer wants tap or bottled water, they automatically bring you single use plastic bottles of water (without you even asking). Please care for the environment and help to reduce waste.

We showed up and was not greeted by a host for quite a few minutes, and then were told our reservation was for indoors, even though it definItely was for outdoor dining.
Then! when we were finally sat (outdoors, luckily), the waitress took our order, was friendly... but unfortunately the order was wrong. Avocado crema on the side, not on tacos, was not followed. a complete wrong order was brought out.
nice view. had an opening saturday morning. wouldn't go back, but if you had no other choices, not SO terrible.

Made a mistake and accidentally showed up 25 minutes late to my reservation. They had marked me down as a no show even though I was a guest at the hotel just two floors down, I would've expected a call from anywhere else before marking me as a no show. but all was well, they still had our table and sat us right away. View is absolutely gorgeous. drinks are tiny, but delicious, for the price and the food was awful. we only got the cheesy dip, though. Waiter watched us sit there cold and clearly done eating for 10 minutes before he asked us if we wanted the check. I will definitely come back, it's totally worth it for the pictures and view, but that's about it.

The atmosphere was very deceiving based on the picture that is on the yotel website ,I was very disappointed with what I saw and expected,from this establishment.

For example: there was no lounge chairs,
The food was not tasty ,the tables throughout the area that they had available ,were high top tables more like something you get at a diner no atmosphere . I could not wait to leave!

Food and service were great.....the cocktails on their menu are good.....but if you want a dirty martini or vodka/soda their vodka is a berry flavor, its odd. My bf mentioned his vodka tasting like grape and they got him a new one which also tasted like grape.

Went to the rooftop bar and ordered $137 of food and drinks. 18% gratuity was included in the price and was confirmed with the waitress.
A day later I found a $270 charge on my card and now the restaurant will not pick up my call or take any messages. I’m trying to give them the benefit of the doubt that they charged us over 100%tip because we left the tip section blank because it was already included in the total price.

Debated whether or not to write this review because I hope it doesn't become too popular but this is truly a secret gem in Boston! Given that this is one of a few rooftops in the city, I'm always surprised whenever I can snag a reservation. Though you'll come here for the views and drinks, the food is pretty good as well. The service is also notably excellent and friendly - from the host to the waiter and everyone who attended to us.

Heaters were not working despite my calling ahead of time and them assuring us they were. Patio was super cold and first they sat us out in open, with no heaters in sight. Gave us attitude when we asked to be moved closer to a heater. When asked if heater could be turned up, they nonchalantly said these are not meant for winter! At that point, we moved inside. Took a good while for anyone to take our order, even longer to bring our drinks. When we asked for hot sauce, took them 20 min to bring it. Changed the server on us twice. Asked us to leave at 90 min mark even though the restaurant was pretty much empty. Did not even acknowledge that we were there to celebrate a birthday. Food was good but the mediocre service and poor attitudes will prevent us from visiting again.

Always outstanding. Love the deck. Enough glass around to protect from wind for most part. Red tomato salsa is FAB. Love the Farmers Omelette, and good for calorie and health conscious. My friend had the burger and she is VERY picky. She loved it. Was sunny with a few snow flakes falling---which was kind of surreal. Their heaters are great. Was about 40 degrees and we were just fine. I bring my own chair cushions in a shopping bad to all outdoor restaurants so the derrière stays warm, plus I have a skinny butt, to counteract the cool seats, but think they have blankets for guests anyhow. Service is always great. I have so much respect for those who serve us. Please tip big.

Deck 12 has a fantastic view and is definitely worth the extra money for drinks and food. However, we went on a Saturday night and despite making a reservation that was supposed to have a heat lamp (and also showing up on time), we did not get a table with one and were freezing for the entire time. I would definitely not recommend going for outdoor dining during the winter. They were also unfortunately out of mint but that was no big deal. Service was fast and friendly, so it was overall a decent experience. We look forward to going to deck 12 during the summer though!

This rooftop bar is extremely overpriced! We got a drink each and one appetizer and it was $60. My drink was very very tiny. It was something passion. My boyfriend got a tiki drink which was decent. You are definitely paying for the view. They also calculate in 18% tip automatically. They gave us a table with heaters that barely worked. Don't suggest going in the winter. Go when its nice out in the spring or summertime
