A little bit taken over by instagrammers (who actually helped us to take great photo).
Overall the view worth booking. Staff members make experience even nicer.

Service was awesome. Food was great. Very small rooftop but great view. Would definitely be back. Only thing is I was hoping to seat outside but it was already packed when I got there 30mins after opening.

It was great, although we were sat in the corner with a lot of others when there was a lot of space everywhere else. The birthday cake was great!

The service was awesome. We were celebrating out Anniversary and we were greeted with Champagne. How thoughtful!!
We had a great time. Food excellent, although , I think they should also serve small plates so people can share the food and not hold it in their hands
Other wise it was a memorable night !! The view was amazing!

It was our last night in the city and I had seen The Skylark on a YouTubers channel and knew I wanted to bring her up to the rooftop one evening. It didn’t disappoint.

Il panorama di questo rooftop è meraviglioso, ma lo consiglio più per bere che per mangiare.

We had a wonderful evening in Skylark: the location is amazing and this is the best point.
Staff should be more quiet and let the customers enjoy the evening.
We suggest everybody to try this place! :)

Servicio excelente. Debido a que fue el cumpleaños de mi madre, reservé mesa con las mejores vistas. Nos dieron una de las mejores mesas que tienen, con unas vistas increibles. Felicitaron a mi madre y le treajeron un postre con velita para su cumpleaños. Su fuerte no es la comida, pero los cocktails son muy correctos y el ambiente y servicio es lo mejor. Gracias a Skylark por hacernos pasar una gran velada.

The Skylark was very nice. The drinks were good. I would highly recommend one of their signature cocktails, however, the best part of the experience is the view. Worth the hype.

The best view is on the upper deck, especially on a nice evening. Make sure you make a reservation and asked to be seated on the upper deck, because if you don’t it’s 1st come 1st served.

It was absolutely amazing. Our reservation was for 1130 and our plans changed and we arrived at 930. Not only did they accept us early, but gave us an outside table along with champagne and mini cupcakes for our birthday girl. We were a group of 3 women age 27, 40 and 64 and we felt really comfortable and music was fantastic. All staff we encountered were so friendly. Loved the experience.
