    Food was absolutely amazing! Ambiance was great but glass ceiling was covered in plastic, I thought you would be able to see more. Back wall was bare. I think those improvements would help the otherwise amazing decor a lot. Food was amazing, but a bit on the price size. Everything is $17-$18 per item.

    This is a hidden gem in the middle of Manhattan. Comfortably decked out, beautiful ambiance, great drinks and exceptional food. Excellent view of the Empire State Building, open, friendly and happy atmosphere. Highly recommend for an evening drink and dinner.

    This place has potential to be amazing. However they don’t really serve the tables and don’t make it clear you have to go to the bar for your drinks. There was only one server who was also the bar tender. Just kind of an awkward experience. But location and set up is absolutely gorgeous

    The place looks nice but is not air conditioned. The food I ordered (huevos rancheros) was pretty terrible. There was nobody there at lunch/brunch time on a Sunday which says a lot. The reservation system is a mess, allowing you to book for any time despite them not opening until noon. Not offensively bad but also wish I had gone somewhere else.

    Met a friend here for drinks and it was okay. The rooftop is attractively decorated and the service was good but they don’t serve liquor. They also close at 9 which is weird but even weirder they started flashing the lights on and off 30 minutes before they were going to close. The bar had about 30 people in it too! Definitely would recommend they get a liquor license and not close so early in a city like New York.

    Just over rated. They don’t have hard liquor, yet still charge $20 a drink. We had to flag the waitress down anytime we wanted something and had to repeat things to her several times. Food was the only thing I would return for. Even the space was not as nice as the pictures. You can do a lot better for the price point.

    This was such a cute space. As soon as you enter, you feel like you're in a millennial ad. The place is so blush and welcoming and there are so many Instagrammable pieces. There's also a lot of places to sit and the space is really plush. The staff are super friendly and if you get the right person playing the music you'll be in heaven. There's outdoor seating and indoor, some lounge chairs and also mini cabana like seating. You can definitely do a group dinner here and it'll work just fine. I loved the indoor/outdoor feel. As far as the food goes, it was not crazy expensive and it was all pretty good, nothing spectacular but pretty good. The drinks were not as strong as they could be but they did taste really good. I'm definitely going back and it is highly recommended.

    Only served wine based drinks and beer. Online food menu was misleading. There were only three entre options in the restaurant. Staff was kind but overall experience was disappointing given the potential of the space and location.

    No music? Painfully slow service, waitress could not answer our questions. “Bottomless mimosas” was $40 for literally orange juice on ice, and the food took 1 hr+ and was cold. Huevos rancheros we’re the furthest thing from traditional - no sauce and the eggs were scrambled. Also had a side cup of cold beans? This place has amazing potential given the rooftop location and glass ceiling, but all around they missed the mark.

    The ambiance was very nice even with the rain taking over most of the deck area. But if you weren’t at the party that they were hosting you got 0 attention. For 3 drinks it cost me almost as much as my bill at slate which had shots, drinks, and food, so that was disappointing

    Pros: Great music Good location Seated immediately Great space Has so much potential to be great but…. Cons: No hard liquor they also only stick to the menu and even those drinks were made sub par… Good looked like it was frozen and they just heated it up.. the crowd was a bit strange there not sure if they use promoters but seemed a bit off

    Food selection was very limited. The food finally came after a long wait was indeed very sad. Drinks were not good either. Good ambience with glass rooftop and direct sun light but definitely not worth the price. Would not come back solely for the photos, not worth it.
