Great Atmosphere, Food, Service and View. Highly recommend for a night out, after work meeting or any special occasions.
I’ve always had a great experience and the food has been consistently good.

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.

Loved the rooftop - so beautiful. Drinks were excellent. Food was very good - not a huge fan of the calamari - but the rest was great.

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.

The view was beautiful but the service was very slow and the place is too much touristic. The music is bad and too high. I wouldn't recommend it.

The drinks were very good and a good size. The food was NOT worth it. If anything I would only go to this location for a few drinks with the view. We got an appetizer and two meals but left hungry and actually went and picked up additional food. The portion sizes are just extremely small for the dollar value.

We went here for our anniversary and were a bit late, to which they were very accommodating. We were greeted with complimentary sparkling wine which was a nice surprise! The server was sweet and quick. Food was delivered quickly. The mac n cheese cupcakes were divine but the fried chicken sliders seemed burnt and not very flavourful. The view was spectacular! The music was super loud though like a club which we weren't expecting. I'd say if you're over 30 you may wanna rethink going here. But if you're young and single, this seems like a cool place to hang out.

Would definitely go back. Beautiful place and views. Delicious food & drinks. Didn't know there was an upstairs whole bigger rooftop part until someone told us. Wish we had an option of choice to reserve table up there. But overall, nice experience.

A beautiful and stylish place, with an excellent view of NY. We were there during sunset wich was stunning. Service was a bit slow but otherwise very good. We loved the calm atmosphere, with nice music and very good drinks. If you are looking for a Sex And The City vibe, this is the place to go.

30 stories up in the heart of times square, The Skylark is a rooftop cocktail lounge with panoramic views of the Hudson River, The Empire State Building, and Midtown Manhattan.

When you're in Time Square it's really hard to find non-touristy/non-chain locations to enjoy a good cocktail so I tend to pick the Skylark especially when its nice out. High on top of an Art Deco building in the Garment District with great views and great drinks.

We were out celebrating a birthday and wanted to go somewhere nice for after dinner drinks. I’m glad I made a reservation at Skylark! I had on my reservation it was a birthday celebration and totally forgot about it since made reservation a few weeks in advance, but guess what? They surprised us with little cupcakes (from baked by Melissa BONUS POINTS!!) and candles.

Staff is super attentive, unlike most midtown rooftop bars, they really made our night magical! =]

We went there for my sisters bachelorette party and it was packed on a Thursday. We made reservations for a bachelorette party and asked for a great table with a view. They sure did!

We all had a great time.

Lo mejor : la música y las vistas. Los tragos también son muy ricos, aunque esperaba un poco más.

Llegamos antes de la hs en la que habíamos reservado y fueron muy amables preparándonos una mesa y dejándonos pedir algo para cenar a pesar que ya era tarde. Atención excelente !!

One of the most unenjoyable places i have been. Overpriced and overhyped the frose looks nothing like the one online and honestly its just not worth it at all. Also the hours are insane that they are open and it makes no sense. Wont go back.

So many rooftop places have become so crowded and noisy that they defy the respite that they're supposed to provide. Skylark is a rare treat. Phenomenal service and fare. And the atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful. Just great!

WOW! Absolutely fantastic! Our Server were really great( sorry didn’t get her name), food was very nice and the skylark cocktail was really good! We had a really good time and can’t wait to come back!

Views were really good overlooking the Empire State Building, even if coming just for drinks the view is worth it!

Thank you!!

extremely rude bartenders. i had a reservation at 4:30 when the rooftop bar opened and they placed my mother and i in the furthest corner away from the view with the empire state building while the people that came after us were all placed in seats with the best view. i thought it was because i was wearing jeans but there were many other guests also wearing jeans. i did notice that the difference between my mother and i and the other guests was that we are latina and they were all caucasian/white which makes me believe that is why we were seated in the back corner. i WILL NOT be recommending this bar to any of my friends or family who frequent new york city.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Skylark. Our table was ready on time for our 5:30 reservation. They met us with complimentary Prosecco for the occasion!

The service and the food was excellent. The post-work crowd came filtering in with people there for all different occasions. The description of “smart casual” attire is on-point. The noise level was definitely buzzing, but never too loud for conversation.

We’re definitely coming back!

We made reservations the day before. Once we checked in with the hostess stand, we were seated promptly. We sat for 20 minutes before someone asked to take our drink order. We waited 10 more mins before we left. The views were phenomenal, but music was intolerably loud and service was non-existent!
