The place is a gem! The views are breathtaking, unbelievable sunsets, live music, the artists had an angel voice and sang all classics (Whitney Houston, Bruno Mars, smooth operator etc.) Food is ok, mainly pizza, nachos etc, nothing too elaborated but the experience the drinks etc that is the take away. The only downside is that open table lets you reserve for dinner but when you arrive there is a sign that it is first come first serve (they only reserve to have lunch or a drink until 3 pm). That is a glitch the bar and open table need to resolve since it can ruin your plans. We were lucky someone stood up and we could grab the table so that is why I have an overall possitive experience and review.

Our waitress was delightful and the food delicious. My husband enjoyed the scallops while I dined on the tiny purses. The whipped ricotta was a great starter and the cheesecake capped off the meal. We enjoyed the meal so much we went to brunch the next morning at their park location.

Walked in and was told there was only outdoor seating available by a rather unfriendly hostess. Asked how long the wait would be as we didn’t mind waiting since it was hot out. Was told I don’t know there’s a lot of reservations the next hour so I can’t tell you. Ok perfect, I went and made a reservation and there was inside seating available for a reservation for 15 minutes from when I walked in which I thought was odd since I just was told they couldn’t give me a time but ok cool. I booked it. Walked back in 15 minutes later and told the same hostess I was there and now had a reservation for inside seating, she was obviously annoyed I had figured out a way to get past her system but there was literally no one waiting in front of me. She caught an attitude and still made me wait another 10 minutes for the other imaginary reservations that never came that she seemed to think were of more value than mine because I annoyed her. I was eventually seated because when you have 3 open tables and no people walking in it’s kind of hard to justify making me stand there. From then on service was great and the food was good. As long as you don’t get the miserable hostess who hates her job I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time here. If you see the gal with the tattoos and septum piercing at the host stand be prepared to deal with crankiness before you’re seated unless you have a pre booked reservation and there’s no one in the general vicinity who looks like they may want a table.

Beautiful rooftop garden! It’s a bit on the sunny side with several umbrellas that don’t do much for coverage during midday, however the staff was very accommodating when able. The food was outstanding, I highly recommended the inclusive brunch!
