    Great space - the view of the Empire State Building is awesome. The servers and chef were very accommodating of a soy and egg allergy at our table. Kale salad was yummy!!! Great vibe, nice cozy pockets for lots of groups to have a great time.

    Loved everything about this place! The ambiance was perfect and I loved the vibes of the exposed brick, the rooftop patio, the glass ceiling, and hanging plants. The food was delicious and fresh and the cocktails/drinks were great. Not extremely overpriced considering it’s Manhattan and the views of the Empire State Building made it all even more worth it. Highly recommend this place to locals and tourists alike!

    Experience was ok- they originally sat us outside with no heaters, when there were open tables inside. We asked for a heater because they had multiple on other tables. After they couldn’t accommodate outside, we were moved inside.

    Good food and good energy. Great view of the Empire State Building is definitely a plus although a bit obscured by the plastic that was put up to prevent the coldness but you can always go outside to get a better view. Good recommendation for drinks and small eats.

    Pretty average experience to be honest. No major complaints as such but nothing was exceptional. Small portions of food, taste wise not bad but not great either. We were seated outdoors under a tent but regardless of the space heaters it was pretty cold. I ordered the Sangria and it was average as well.

    Good drinks, great vibes. Food well-executed. Service was prompt and attentive. Would have been nice to have two water carafes since there were 6 of us and it was a very hot day. Outside of that we were accommodated with a shaded table since it was sunny at the time we arrived.

    My wife and I hade a wonderful experience. We calibrated our 15th year anniversary. The gentleman who greeted us in the front was really friendly, showed us to our table and gave us complimentary champagne. Nice touch. Our servers Sean and Tina were great as well, they set the standard. My wife had the shrimp tacos as her appetizer and the flank steak as her entree. I had the lamb lollipops as my appetizer and the brick oven half chicken as my entree. Oh the salted caramel cheesecake was the bomb. We sat on the roof so the views were breath taken. Good food, good people, good music, GOOD VIBES. We will diffenately visit again. Thanks for a great time.

    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!
