Yet again, slow and rude service despite many empty tables.

Several drinks on the menu weren’t available.

EXTREMELY unaccomodative of any modifications if you have food restrictions like vegan / vegetarian. The worst part is that I even if it’s a tiny modification, some servers may say yes after asking a few times and others just say no even I showed a pic of the thing they served me last time with the exact tiny modification I requested. This is the most pathetic attitude I’ve ever experienced in NYC as someone with food restrictions.

I returned here in hopes of better service and food options since the ambiance is really nice. But I have realized it’s simply not worth wasting my hard earned $ and free time at a place like this.

Very happy with our night, we had an outdoor rooftop table and enjoyed the live jazz music that was just the right volume. Food/drinks were good and the service was very good-- our servers were very personal and fun.

We went for brunch on Sunday and the overall experience was just average. The roof top is not much of a setting. The drinks were fair and the food was pretty good.

Father’s Day early dinner with family. Has a blast. Rooftop is amazing. I imagine it gets loud and crowded at other times, but we did a 5pm dinner and had an amazing time.

Incredibly slow service and rude waitstaff. Don’t give them your brunch business.

You get a table for 90 minutes and the food took 1 hour plus to come to us since we ordered. Appreciate that Saturday brunch will be a busy time but if they can’t service so many tables, simply don’t take the reservation.

Our waitress was also quite rude when we inquired why the food was taking so long. If you like ask questions about the menu / need some modifications to food to meet dietary requirements, don’t bother asking them as they will just show a ton of attitude. Oh, and they also walk away mid-way through the order. Like I said, if you are busy, simply don’t seat more people and ruin their day too.

Food was fine, but cold and dishes was different people came 20 mins apart. Like the truffle fries a lot.

Made an outdoor reservation and asked for the happy hour menu but was told we couldn’t do happy hour on the rooftop so we asked to sit inside but we were given such a hard time about it because they were claiming the reservations were booked. After going back and forth with the hostess multiple times she finally brought us down to a table in the back that was sticky and unclean and we were not even given the happy hour menu there till we asked for it after being ignored for a good 10 minutes. Not to mention that the tables and the bar was empty. I’ve never experienced service this bad before and will not be coming back.

I wasn't too sure about this p[lace but it ended up being really nice. The server was really knowledgeable about the beers, and the food was excellent. They had a great beer selection too.

The ambiance could use a little bit of work, but overall it was a nice place

Good was really good and service was great until it got busy..my friends and I got there at 5:45 so they weren’t busy yet but when they got busy I didn’t really see my waitress much..rooftop is on the smaller side, so I’m glad we made reservations. Would go there again.

We were hoping for a nice place for Sunday brunch but this place is a Bar and feels like one...Even thou the food was ok I wouldn't recommend it for Brunch. They don't have any coffee/espresso drinks and the Brunch options are pretty limited.

The hostess was very rude. She talked about us to her coworkers when we asked if we could have our seat changed. Little did she know my boyfriend was standing right behind them, then she switched up to a fake customer service voice. The food was bland. The drinks were nice and strong. The seating area was very dusty. I don’t even want to it my back on the booth. The only good part was the service from the bartender Eric. I would never consider coming back here. I could wait to leave. Overall a really horrible experience.

I booked for lunch and they told me that they were not serving food so we had to leave after having to wait in line to get in. Not sure why they are posting availability on Open Table when the kitchen is closed. Also the staff were not the friendliest. Do not take children as it's more a place to go for drinks with friends.
