entrance was a bit off putting, dark and dirty/scruffy. /once we settled in, it was fun, the food was small and expensive as expected. but we were warned. and it was very yummy.
The view is really good
We could not have been happier with the excellent view and the delicious drinks. Our waitress was so kind and attentive. Definitely not a cheap night, but absolutely worth it.
Incredible view of the Empire State Building. Decent cocktails. Slow service but with the great view it was good not to be hurried. Food was very tasty just very small portions
This is a great spot. Amazing views. Really great service. Good music and energy. We showed up early expecting to have to wait at the bar but the staff was very accommodating and sat us almost immediately. I would highly recommend and will be going back again.
One of the best views in the city.
Meh. I should have gotten the hint from having had to wait downstairs by the elevator for well over 20+ minutes past their official open time of 4:30pm Had reservations for 4:45pm hoping to beat the crowd... which apparently we couldn’t since the entire lounge was not ready to receive customers (which was bizarre and amateurish at the least) finally got seated, good views of midtown skyline however being a New Yorker and having gone to many a rooftop lounges, I was not at all impressed with this place’s professionalism, service, taste of food nor the quality of drinks - cocktails were barely tasty. Their only cache is the view. Will not be visiting this lounge again any time soon... as there are plenty other better, far superior service locations around the city..
Very good cocktails, amazing view.
But service was very bad twice this week.
Long wait, unpleasant waitress, mistake in the check and very difficult to have the good check. Desappointing.
Visiting skylark was an extremely disappointing experience... it almost ruined my night that was a special occasion for me and my husband.. I had booked a table at the open terrace but that time was raining.. so when we arrived we were informed that our table was supposed to be outside, so they didn’t know what to do.. they gave us a table outside the bar, next to the elevator and the man at the entrance.. we waited half an hour there, but none came to take us an order.. so we decided to leave. I think that they wanted us to leave from the time we arrived but they did not want to tell that to us, because of the reservation.. and the reason was not our appearance, because we were aware of the dress code of the bar and we were appropriately dressed.. it’s disappointing from a bar that is considered to be serious and famous to act like this.. they should have informed us not to go from the begging if they did not have space for us.. I had booked the table 3 days before, so they had plenty of time to cancel my reservation.. overall we faced an unacceptable and unprofessional behavior.
Great place. Very nice view and excellent service
Very nice space with terrific views that will invariably become increasingly crowded and popular as the warmer weather approaches.
Small plates were fantastic. Themed hallways between the entrance and elevator add a sense of fun/mystery. Only con is that music was a little loud for me, but this is personal preference of course.
Great place to get together with friends. Outdoor rooftop does not open until May, but great view of the city from other floors as well. Awesome cocktails and bar bites, but pricey. Young crowd and pretty loud, and this was before the sun went down. Wish they were open on the weekends!
Having been recommended, we were disappointed. We had to use our phone torches to read the menu. Other diners were behaving inappropriately (ie get a room). The view was spectacular.
Nice experience. Our first time, will definitely go back.
We went there to have some cocktails before dinner. The place is exceptional! The view is unbelievable and drinks delicious! I will so go back there.
Disappointed they kicked us off our table after 90 minutes, saying it was reserved for someone else.
Good overall! Nice cocktails, decent appetizers.
Our waitress was changed without notice, she was way nicer than the second one.
Gorgeous NYC view. This place is swanky and fun, and everything about it was amazing. The small plates were tasty and the drinks were good. It's a little pricey, but that's to be expected for such a cool spot in the city. I will definitely be back.
Amazing views, delicious food and drinks, would highly recommend!
My mom and I wanted the rooftop bar experience and the Skylark didn't disappoint. The view of the Empire State Building is second to none and we came during the transition from late afternoon to sunset, which was spectacular. The music was really quite loud, which is only thing that detracted from the ambiance, but the service was really quick and helpful and the food was amazing. We ordered four different small plates and each one was fantastic.
Truly the most amazing service of anywhere I have been in NYC and I have had great service elsewhere. We came for drinks and appetizers and couldn’t stop ordering, everything was so good! The views are unbeatable as well.
The Skylark provided an amazing view of Manhattan at night.
Was a very popular venue where seemed to be a meeting place after work.
Cocktails a little pricey, however views make up for this.
Service was good and when I received the wrong cocktail, it was replaced without question.
It was really nice rooftop bar!! But actually their terrace is just smoking zone. Do not expect terrace.
Really enjoyable . The views are amazing. Food is delicious . Looking forward to a return visit
Good spot for drinks and snacks after work. We arrived relatively early so getting in was a breeze via the friendly doorman, but I still appreciate the convenience of being able to book on OpenTable. Snacks/appetizers were surprisingly good, especially the short rib bites. A little on the pricey side compared to your typical midtown pub, but its an upscale rooftop place so what else would you expect.
Tiene unas vistas impresionantes.Estuve con mi novio y nos atendieron genial. Muy buena música y ambiente muy neo yorkino, nada de turistas.Volveré!
25.Geburtstag, klasse Stimmung, traumhafter Ausblick. Beste Bar!
Missing the personal touch and service, but the location is amazing. Work on the service skills and I will be back everytime I am in city. Still my favourite spots in NYC though
We were visiting NY for a special occasion. The skylark didn't disappoint....stylish , amazing views , great music, good choice of tapas style menu. Surprised at some of the very very casual dress given the venue. So if you like to dress up you may feel a bit out of place ! Also around $150 dollars for a bottle of wine and 3 snack dishes , we were rushed . Had intended to order more wine and food but they more than let us know to move on after Only hour and a quarter . We took our drinks out on to a well heated terrace with a stunning view over the city , only to be told we needed to leave as a private function was arriving!! Should have been told when we booked. that was disappointing .
All said, if we came to NYC again it would be a must and we will recommend to people. Maybe we were unlucky with the time slot
We made a reservation and it was a great choice. My wife and I had great drinks and enjoyed amazing sunset views in New York City. Definately I recommend Skylark to couples who visit NewYork for special occasions!
Great drinks with an amazing view. Service was prompt and attentive without feeling rushed.
Food and cocktails were perfect compliments
As our first time in NYC the views from the Skylark are next to none. We had a great time. Great cocktails and great music.
My birthday 😁
Excellent cocktail menu. My favorite rooftop venue in NYC!
Great find - amazing views of the city and delicious cocktails! Great service too
The overall ambience of this place was superb! Food was amazing.
Everything was perfect I liked...
Nice view. Cocktails are excellent. Live band is excellent. Did not like, however, that our reservation had a time limitation after which we were asked to leave.
