                                                    It was a bit noisy for my taste. I would have preferred more quiet environment. It has nothing to do with the restaurant just guests were too laud

                                                    The service was good, great atmosphere! The high top table and chairs were not comfortable. Food is delicious but expensive although you are paying for the rooftop vibe. Great bar cocktail mixers!

                                                    Was disappointing that for afternoon drinks and snacks, the only 2 options available were French fries or oysters, a kind of random pairing. We tried both, and they were very tasty, but would have appreciated more variety as online an ‘all day menu’ is advertised. Great views, very beautiful restaurant. Would definitely return.

                                                    Excellent waiting servers, esp the head waiter, Ethan, who jumped in to help us when our waiter was tied up with a big table. Loved the favours & quality of food. Only issue was the LARGE PLATES weren’t very big, especially the quantity of the ricotta agnolotti pasta.

Server was amazing yet we waited 40minutes to be seated when we had a reservation booked. The hostess was nice and offered us to wait on the balcony with great views. Perfect for happy hour drinks, apps, social gatherings.

                                                    Food was ok, our toast was burnt and hard and the waitress didn’t want to make my son a grill cheese. Service was horrible. My coffee came cold and then took forever to get a refill. Views were awesome but that’s about it.

                                                    What a wonderful brunch! From the initial welcome with a smile from both hostesses to the delightful and detail oriented approach by our server Jacob. He was attentive, informative and made our experience relaxing and joyful. Also noteworthy was the music and dj experience by brettyboop who took us to the Mediterranean coast. Perfect ambiance for friends to catch up over bubbly. The avocado toast was perfectly balanced on sourdough and the house made hot pepper spread was unreal! Can’t wait to come back and enjoy again!

                                                    Such an overrated place, the food was not that good with very limited choices on the brunch menu, the atmosphere was ok but a bit too crowded and noisy, the service was not the best.. the only good thing was the view and the outdoor patio (which was still closed for dining but you can go out for pictures) I think they should up their game on the food with better taste, better variety and provide a better service for what your paying for as it’s quite expensive and I had a poor experience!

                                                    We had a great birthday dinner for my daughter. The setting was gorgeous, as was the sunset. The servers were very attentive, although the food took a long time to arrive. The small and large sharing plates were all very good. When our server asked how was the food, I said that everything was great except for the oysters which tasted fishy and were very small. To our surprise, they were taken off of our bill. Very classy!
