    What a fabulous surprise! The view was amazing, the food was delicious, the drinks incredible and one of the best desserts I’ve ever had - s’mores dessert. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and it was such a great choice for us to dine at Dream midtown. Great evening!

    In general, it was fine, only the waitress and the very slow assistants, the waitress lacked being attentive and knowing how to serve the potcher's glasses to the glass, the food assistants were very slow for everything, especially at my table.

    I was there yesterday with my fiancé and her friend, late afternoon. We did love the view but the temp was so hot we couldn’t enjoy it enough. We order some beers, trying to see if it could help cool off and they were lukewarm. We order food and some of the food were over cooked. We were trying to order more drinks, but by the looks of it the waitress was to overwhelm with the other parties she was attending (one waitress for 7 groups). Me and my party had enough and we decided to leave and go to another bar. I was looking forward to have a great experience and what we received was an uncomfortable situation.

    I proposed to my Fiancée here, they were extremely accommodating, they made sure everything was right for the occasion. Beautiful place, beautiful staff, the drinks are amazing. My favorite drink is the Dazed And Confused. If you want to get drinks, have some good finger food and amazing pictures this is your spot.

    Made reservations for a party of 8 was seated in area that only held 4 people it was extremely hot, to the point we had to leave before we passed out. Asked for better accommodations but everything was reserved. The person i spoke to was genuinely sorry they couldnt help. Wish it could have been a better experience, It was really pretty there.

    Made an 11pm reservation here for 6 to meet up with family living in NYC. My spouse and I had no trouble getting in with our CA licenses, which they scanned. Then when my youngest family member who IS 21+ showed up with his legit TN license the bouncer wouldn’t let him in. He expressed his frustration of having to go home and get his passport within earshot of the bouncer so the bouncer then gave him a hard time for expressing his frustration at this inconvenience. But, my family member WENT HOME and got his MATCHING Passport and then they still wouldn’t let him in! I had spoken to a manager in between attempts to get in and she said she had to believe her bouncer and she wasn’t all that friendly or seemingly willing to help us… However, she’d said with a matching passport he shouldn’t have any trouble. But, lo and behold they still didn’t want to let him in with his passport. This bouncer was clearly on a power trip as he had let our other family member in with a TN license in between these incidents. I had to go get the manager to help my family member finally be let in. Though she also gave him a hard time. All in all, I spent over $300 on drinks here. Last insult to injury was no itemized receipt to confirm our drink orders against. Too tired to raise anymore issues with this place I signed the check and we left. Had fun with my family, but this place is 100% not worth the hassle and harassment. The bartender who helped us most of the night was great, but she closed out her side of the bar before the closed out our tab.

    Great space and location. Lots of staff and all very pleasant but pretty much ignored by waitress. Would have had more to eat and drink if she had ever returned to our table. Not a craft drink bar, just cocktails from the menu. Sort of a Disney ride version of a VIP lounge.

    Good ambiance. However I booked a table for 3 and we were seated at a table for 2. A party of 4 arrived shortly after us and I noticed that they were seated at a table for 3! Seating is a bit cramped. Otherwise, good views of the city scape.

    The bouncers were friendly and welcoming. My girlfriend forgot her ID but had a picture of her passport on her phone and accepted that as proper identification. The drinks were great and the quesadillas were amazing and filling. The music wasn’t overwhelmingly loud and can still hold a conversation with friends without yelling. The ambiance and view was spectacular. Will be returning.

    First time visit. Walked by dozens of times. Had a friend in town staying at a nearby Midtown hotel and wanted to try a different rooftop. The vibe and experience was pleasant from the young ladies greeting us outside, to the young man who put us on the elevator, to the young lady who seated us, to our server Julia from Georgia. The food was small bites and decent. The service was great and the vibe was chill. I must add that is was a rainy day and the crowd was on tge light side for a Friday night. I would definitely recommend a visit and will return again. Great midtown location!

    It really wasn't that great. The service was poor, we had to actually wave down a server after sitting for 20 minutes. The food was mostly good. Mac and cheese balls were great. The drinks were terrible. They were very pretty but every drink we got tasted so bad. It didn't even taste like alcohol, they just tasted terrible. It was so crowded and although we had a reservation, they still sat us on a bench with a stool and what looked like a coffee table. I wouldn't go back.

    I spent my 21st birthday in New York City, and I reserved a table for my friends and I. Little did I know, our table would be seated on Broadway right down the road from Times Square. While it was very crowded, we were still able to talk and have a good time. The food was amazing (not very large portions for the price, but still good), our cocktail pitchers were strong, and our waitress was kind and attentive. Overall, my 21st Birthday experience at PHD was a memory I will never forget.
