Perfect place to have a business lunch.
Service was super slow, but food and ambience were a 10 as always.
We had reservations here late last night, 9:30 pm, for after an event (we were also guests at the hotel) and were running a bit late getting there. We arrived back to the hotel at 9:53 and went to the rooftop. The male hostess sat us (he wasn’t welcoming, just the mentality of I’m at a job). We waited about 5 minutes for the waitress and ordered drinks. Once getting those we ordered our food. A group of three was sat next to us when it was only a two person table, hence crowding my wife on the one side. We were handed off to another waiter and then wanted to order a bit more to snack. He informed us the kitchen closed at 10:00. We were to say the least a bit put out and that we should’ve been told that to us upon arrival and the first waitress. The waiter apologized, but basically we were done with the poor experience and left. Poor customer service, poor communication, poor experience. There are plenty of other spots to choose from to go to.
We made reservations via OpenTable to have lunch here before a concert that day. Unfortunately, we were 30 minutes late due to traffic. :( However, the friendly staff were very accommodating and were able to get us a table right next to the patio with an incredible view of the Empire State Building! We sat outside on a beautiful day and had a lovely lunch. Service was excellent and attentive to all of our needs. The manager came by a few times to check in on us and ever took our picture! We were there on a Sunday, so the menu was limited, but the choices were perfect for the occasion, and our food was delicious. We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend and go back!
What a great way to close out a whirlwind trip to NYC. Brunch at the Refinery Rooftop was yummy, with a spectacular view and great breakfast cocktails!
What a hidden jewel in the center of NYC! It is wonderful to be able to enjoy fresh air while the weather is fine; in addition, it is close to Penn Station, so it is a convenient place to schedule meeting with those who take the train to town...
Guter Service, nett.
Essen sehr schlecht. Angefangen von den Zutaten über die Zubereitung... Selbst , wenn man es als „Bar Food“ großzügig bezeichnen sollte, einfach schlecht.
Mülleimer stehen sichtbar im Bar/Essensbereich.
Rooftop ist eine Terrasse von der man die Wände der umstehenden Häuser anguckt. Die obersten 7 Etagen des Empire State Building sieht man, das kann man aber auch vom Strassen Cafe auf 6 oder 7 Avenue.
Ich kann das Refinery Rooftop nicht empfehlen.
Great place!!! Wonderful service and the view was incredible
Food and service was amazing! My new favorite lunch spot!
The experience was great
Great spot! Menu should include more keto/ atkins friendly options
This was my special 60th Birthday lunch. Food, service & view was amazing!! The hummus was delicious!! My spinach salad & my husband’s burger was outstanding! The S’mores shot was a perfect ending to a wonderful lunch. We sat outside on the patio & the view of the Empire State Building was a bonus!!
Loved the terrace and the view. Cocktails are a little small, too much ice for the drink.
Had a hugely disappointing experience at refinery rooftop, had booked to have lunch on the roof top, when we arrived we were seated indoors, asking to be sat outside and told this wasn’t possible, despite this we witnessed two other parties be sat outside, one without a reservation, particularly disappointing as we had made our reservation in advance. The service we received whilst eating our lunch, not what we expected meals placed in front of us incorrectly and the table cleared before we had a chance to finish. We were also crowded by people waiting for there tables felt like we were eating our meal in a waiting room. Overall a very poor experience.
We told them it was our birthday and they brought us out complimentary sparklers and dessert shooters. Was truly so special and memorable!
Beautiful space -friendly professional service - delicious food - and what a gorgeous day we were there just made it all perfect. What a wonderful gem.
Food was amazing and the service is wonderful! I had great lunch with a client and celebrated my birthday!
We sat outside on a beautiful day and had a lovely lunch. Service was great. When my companion had a complaint about her drink they scooped it up and asked what else he could bring her, no hesitation. The choices were perfect and our food was delicious. The manager was friendly and attentive, as well. We really enjoyed our time there.
We had an excellent Sunday brunch on/at the Rooftop! The menu offerings were unique and tasty. The views are spectacular. Can't wait to go back!
So glad we made a reservation. Felt like VIPs walking pass the ropes to our own lounge space. Most roof tops are elbow to elbow with no room to move, but we had an entire private area to ourselves to relax and enjoy. The drinks were refreshing, service was attentive and food was delicious. So glad we booked ahead of time, wouldn’t have had it any other way to enjoy a rooftop in NYC.
Great experience, fantastic service and very quick food service. Great atmosphere, will definitely come agin 😬
Lovely place with a great outdoor patio! We had a brunch there on Sunday and was the perfect end to our weekend.
Perfect! Great food, awesome views, impeccable service! We will definitely be back!
The kitchen close at 10pm and it’s not written anywhere i was surprised.
Gorgeous day for brunch on a great rooftop! Our host/maitre d’ was very accommodative helping finding us a table not in direct sun. So lovely to have a trendy spot without overly snooty help. Our server was also exceptional. Food was great. I look forward to going back in the winter because with the high ceilings and decor this place is a winner.
So much fun
This place has the best atmosphere and views! Inside can be a bit loud but if the weather is right get outside and it is magical!
The food was good and the location is verte nice.
However the service was not so good considerino that mi plate was dirty and, since it was ma birthday, the dessert with the candel arrived when we were still eating the entrance.......
Really nice place and unforgettale view
The drinks were not worth it, they had no taste but the environment and vibes were nice!
Our server was very sweet and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful experience and service was top notch!
The food was very good. However from the reviews I expected more options. The drinks were also very good.
The environment was great even though the music was so loud it was difficult to talk while eating.
The best part was the waitress. She was awesome! She was attentive and just a great personality.
I would go back but only for drinks and may be appetizers.
It’s surely a lovely place for a nice chat with friends
The Hawaiian flatbread taste really good!
The food and venue were fabulous! Will definitely return!
Not worth the trip and hype. It's crowded, noisy and touristy. Full for undergrad student types as well. No class whatsoever.
Everything was amazing!!!! Great time here!
This was my first time there and it was delicious. I had the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp. Great view of the Empire State Building and our table was partly inside and partly outside which was perfect on a sunny summer day in NYC
