Menu is limited due to COVID19 but the options aren’t that great. My server was terrible. I would have to flag her down if I needed anything or ask another server to go get her. She didn’t check on us once. We always had to get her attention. We were there for a bday celebration and I gave the server instructions which of course she didn’t follow. She was lucky they included the tip because it was not deserved. Won’t be returning anytime soon.

beautiful location, great food and drinks and friendly service. however did not feel like proper precautions were taken for COVID. Other restaurants i have been to have hand sanitizer in the front and do not have guests sharing a pen to sign a waiver. place was pretty full and busy which is great for the establishment but not safety of guests. tables not too far apart from each other. would recommend that they consider letting less people in at once or placing tables further apart. we were lucky enough to get a table in a far corner. would not have been happy sitting anywhere else. otherwise nice experience.

I booked a reservation for 5 but at the last minute had 2 additional guests. When I arrived, I asked if they would be able to accommodate 2 people being added to our party and the host immediately said it would not be a problem. Our waitress Claudia was very nice & attentive! I would definitely return but next time with my boyfriend as the ambiance was so relaxing and I’m sure the view of the city is way better when you dine at night.

My fiance and I went for our bdays and had an amazing time. The staff was excellent ( they even sang happy birthday to us) and the food and view were great. The only downside was the wait. We waited an hour to be seated and people were not social distancing and right on top of each other while we waited but overall a great time especially for our first time being officially out at a restaurant since the quarantine began.

Fue un pesimo servicio, estuve en una mesa debajo de una gotera, la mesa bailaba todo el tiempo, se tardaron mas de 40 min en decirme que debia levantarme hasta la barra de licores para pedir mi orden, que debia llevar mis propios platos hasta mi mesa, la señorita de la barra tenia una actitud de indiferencia horrible, es un sitio muy bonito y es una lastima que deje esa experiencia

Beautiful views of Manhattan and a lovely outdoor space. The food is hit and miss. We had very good red snapper dish but the short ribs were cold an he tuna tacos lacked flavor. The menu choices are limited and could be better. Drinks are expensive but good.

The food average. The red snapper ceviche appetizer portion size was pathetic. $17 for 3 bites. Mentioned to staff and they shrugged their shoulders. Overall not impressed. No bread served either.

Amazing food, and service. It was a little windy when we had dinner but that’s out of anyone’s control. The drinks were quite pricey for the amount we received. Aside from that it was great.

After waiting 35 minutes to be seated, the hostess took our temperature. The food selection was just okay, I asked the waiter questions regarding the menu he replied I don't know I just started on Monday. We ordered steak, snapper and short ribs. My son requested to change the avocado fries to regular fries but the substitution was denied without a charge. I ordered the short rib which was very tender but salty. The snapper entree was very good. Atmosphere - we sat outside overlooking the NYC skyline which was nice but the patio dining is very dark - a candle, lantern sometype of light was needed.
Overall the experience was just okay.
