    I hosted a former colleague and other family members from Australia for lunch. Right from stepping off the elevator it felt like this was going to a very good experience...and it was. We were greeted with a warm welcome and reception was most accommodating to a last minute addition to our party. The menu is varied for a broad range of tastes, and the service was professional, helpful and friendly. Our server, Mackenzie was incredible. Most of the party was visiting the USA/NYC for the first time. There are differences, and Mackenzie was patient and most interested in making certain everyone was well served and happy.

    The waitstaff at the Refinery Rooftop is always cordial and attentive, and the food is terrific—the lobster roll one of the best in the city, and the fried calamari comes with a bit of jalapeño that gives it a bright and unexpected punch. And the view of the Empire State Building is always impressive.

    Good food, not great, understaffed, waiters working very hard, but forgetting stuff, a bit disorganized. Great place on the roof, nice location. For us this was late bday celebration, they brought us a piece of cake after we asked for the check which was a bit awkward.

    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.

    Spacious midtown rooftop. More suited for a lounging, happy hour, networking vibe with emphasis on small bite options. COVID definitely limits the experience but still well worth attending for the obligatory NYC rooftop check in...

    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.
