I heard a lot about this place & finally got a chance to check it out. I guess I came with high expectations but unfortunately was let down. The food was overpriced for simple food like an egg sandwich and cinnamon rolls. The interior is cute and cozy but the rooftop wasn't all that.

We went for brunch before a show. The food was delicious (they had me at cast iron skillet mini cinni-buns!), the drinks were creative & refreshing, the service was great (beginning w/smiling hostess, along w/our efficient & friendly server), the décor & atmosphere was contemporary & hip with a great view of the Empire State Building. This is my new fave rooftop brunch spot. Will def go back for seconds!

A very nice place, which is more than just a nice view. Very good food, very nice service. An all-round good experience. Always a pleasure and highly recommended. But it would be good if not everybody would go there. Then we won't get a seat anymore.

One of my go-to places for informal business lunches. Great atmosphere with an elevated view of the southern skyline. It's only 13 floors up, so dont expect too much. Still unique though. Service is always pleasant and efficient. Try it once for yourself, but make a reservation. It can get busy.

What an amazing establishment. The ambiance is to die for! We went here for a last minute birthday brunch and lucky for us it wasn’t crowded at all. Service was great. Food came out timely. The brunch deal wasn’t bad at all at 60 a bottle with a mixer. I’ve only been here at night and happy to have experienced it during the day.

Appena ci siamo seduti al tavolo ci hanno chiesto la carta di credito che ci è stata restituita solo a fine cena e conto già pagato senza che prima potessimo controllarlo
Menù scarno, considerato anche che era la sera del 24 dicembre, il volume della musica impediva una normale conversazione anche con la cameriera che comunque è stata gentilissima
Peccato perché il posto è molto carino

A must when in NYC. So refreshing to be above all the noise and enjoying the relaxing vibe of the Rooftop. Excellent service. We were only there for brunch but it was delicious. Next time we go we will sample the cocktail menu.
