We visited Skylark during our honeymoon in NYC. We had a wonderful time. Excellent service, drinks, food and views! Thank you!

What an amazing experience! Made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday and we had gotten engaged right before! We had to change our reservation, which Skylark was unbelievable flexible to do. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by all personnel. When our waitress came, we excitedly told her about our engagement and were treated like royalty for the rest of the evening, including a champagne toast. The view was incredible, even on a rainy and foggy night. The food was delicious as were the drinks, and the mini balcony over looking the Empire State building was the perfect cherry on top. Thank you for a night we will always remember, we will certainly be back! Could not recommend more highly.

We had a table for two booked as we were celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect. We had a table right in front of the Empire State Building and we felt so welcomed. The views and the drinks were incredible and will be a memorable night for us visiting from the UK. Thank you

I got disappointed because I had an specific time to leave the table. When I made the reservation, nobody said anything about that and I found out when I got there.

Gorgeous views of the west side! The views are the reason to go. The service needs a LOT of work. Our server constantly rushed us, seemed annoyed that we didn’t order more, and generally had a blah vibe.

But whatever, ignore the service, order a good drink and enjoy the views!

The cocktail the waiter recommended was bad and she didn’t even notice I haven’t touched it..
I order a dish which didn’t arrive and when I asked her after 50 minutes she said that she forgot to update that it was finished

Brilliant soundtrack of 90's hip hop, perfectly balanced cocktails, reasonably priced, great service, and incredible views from the 30th floor. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to have a chilled couple of drinks with friends or partner while taking in the view!

The waitress sucks. The second waitress accused us of attempting to dine and dash. Meanwhile they had our credit card on file to hold our table. The drinks weren’t great. Either too sweet or too gross. The only thing I liked was the Receptionist, the DJ and the bartenders (it’s not their fault the drinks on the menu sucked).

The views are incredible and that’s really what you’re paying for. The cocktails are delicious, at $19-20 a piece. The food however was tiny portions and very over priced. The cauliflower and tuna tacos were delicious but stay away from the fried chicken sandwiches. The chicken was basically a hockey puck and sandwich was completely tasteless. We got one order for 2 people and it came with 4. Then we saw on the bill that they charged us for an extra which we never asked for. Was not happy and had it removed.

There was a table waiting for us, but in stead of being positioned to the stunning view we were looking at the inner wall. Something tot think about. And a cold fell on us. Probably due to the big windows

Great place with nice view and a cozy atmosphere!! The lady that was our server (unfortunately I don’t remember her name) was very attentive and took care of us. Also the manager (TJ I think was the name) was very helpful and made sure we had a nice time. Thank you very much !!
