    The view is stunning. However, the service was poor. I understand our waitress was only following orders but it could have been more professional. To start we ordered calamari and we we’re told that she’s not sure if she can bring us the calamari because there wasn’t enough left and she wasn’t sure if our order made the cut. I asked her to bring rock shrimp instead.. it never came. We then ordered dinner to share. We ordered the rigatoni carbonara and it was OK at best. Lastly, I asked for the dessert menu and instead of her giving it to me she said “the kitchen does not prioritize dessert so it may take a while for it to come out. The last table that ordered waited 45 minutes and then left without dessert. Also the guy who normally makes the dessert is bussing the food.” Again, no disrespect to the waitress I can tell she was overwhelmed with a restaurant that clearly planned poorly for the amount of people in attendance and she did not want us to be further disappointed. We witnessed her have the same conversation with other tables as well.

    There was a wedding happening when we arrived. We were asked to move our table out of the way from cocktail hour. Bases on The website pictures we were expecting a lot more. Needless to say the website was deceiving. Plastic drink ware and the food was mediocre at best.

    Was seated at a sub-par table, a couple that came in after us was seated at a better table & served first. Sat for 15 minutes waiting for a waitress to come take our order, eventually just got up & left. The place seemed nice but due to the sub par service & high prices we just left.

    The view was nice. The service was good, but the food was average for the price and they have to fix my sangria because it was incredibly sweet and even after that it wasn’t a great drink. I think they could improve the quality of their drinks/food for the price they are charging.

    The drinks are incredibly over priced, there are not enough servers so service in very slow, and it's honestly sort of tacky up there. I will say the shrimp tacos were very good. I won't recommend or go back.

    The ambiance was nice. Great view of LIC and Manhattan in the backdrop. Drinks were weak and pricey. Service was slow. We had buffalo wings and they came out cold and soggy. 20% tip was automatically added for a party of 2.

    THERE IS NO POINT OF MAKING A RESERVATION ON OPEN TABLE. I made a reservation at 9:00pm for a table for 2 to sit outside. When I arrive they tell me my table is not ready and I'm standing in the doorway for 10mins, before I ask (who I believe was the manager) if I could sit at the bar while we wait for the table. Between my husband and I we went back to the front to ask about our table about 4 times within an hour time span to ask about our table, and every single time they told us that our table was still taken( THATS NOT how reservations work) . After get some drinks we left disappointed. Food looked gross(didn't taste) and the bartender was overworked causing there to be a back log of drinks. So tables were coming up to the bar complaining that they haven't received their drinks. JUST NOT a great EXPERIENCE. not worth the view

    made a reservation and was not accommodated. waited sooo long to be seated and then never received any menus or even water for over an hour. Was told we would be moved to the table we requested originally with the view and was ignored and they gave the table to someone else. Got up and just left - no thanks. very cute spot, staff were visibly stressed but what’s the point of making a reservation and asking for credit card info if we can’t even get in. if you have a reservation for a certain time and you’re on time, your table should be available no?

    So mid. Expected it to be more spacious, servers seemed like they didnt wanna be there at all. Not a lot of variety of food to choose from, plus pricy for no reason. At least the food was good, but again pretty mid. 4.5/10.

    It was okay. The food was decent and the view was alright but the surrounding area was kind of shady to walk through. For the location that it is in, the food and drinks are overpriced. The drinks were pretty to look at but overly sweet and served in plastic ware. Wasn't as nice as we had hoped.

    Let me list my experience on Mother's Day: Restrooms are 12 floors down The initial entrance is cluttered and closed in The dining area smelt like a dirty wet dog I don't want to offend the pizzeria; which I eat their food a lot, this place was overpriced pizzeria food. In my opinion, pizzeria food would have tasted better and would have been cheaper. No table bread was given Had to ask for water As more customers came in, they opened the outhouse for use and very time someone went out to use the outhouse, the dining area door closed with a BANG. Be careful and watch your step because you might trip on the floor or step into a door partition. Only 2 good points: The drinks were great The view of the City was lovely in the evening. The bathrooms that were 12 floors below in the parting garage were really nice.

    Had an amazing time celebrating my wife’s birthday yesterday. We enjoyed the food, drinks, and desert. The manager was on the floor assisting with the servers and waitress and it was amazing. They attended to us very well and efficiently. I would 10/10 recommend. The view was also very beautiful.

    I’m sad to say that this place was a bit of a disappointment. When we went, the outdoor seating area was tented, which wasn’t what we were expecting when we reserved the table for outside. However, they did have an area you could still go to take pictures, which was nice. It took a long time for the server to come by, the food took a long time, and the server seemed to forget about us. We ordered some additional pita bread and it never came. We finally just asked for the check. This was not a place I would come back too. They automatically charged an 18% tip for just the 3 of us, which also seemed weird? And, if you miss or cancel your reservation within 48 hours of the date, they charge you $25 per person. I’m not sure the pictures of the city skyline were worth the experience or price.
