Set thirty stories above the heart of New York City's Fashion District, The Skylark delivers a classically-styled cocktail lounge with expansive panoramic views of the Hudson River, The Empire State Building and Times Square.

The Skylark is a few short blocks from both the Theater District and Madison Square Garden and is the perfect place for an after work cocktail, a light bite or a heartier fare before or after the theater, a concert or a game.

***In case there are no tables available, we encourage you to stop by and enjoy our communal bar area. For larger party inquiries, please email us at events@theskylarknyc.com!

Service was extremely poor. Our waitress never came back to our table after dropping off our drinks. We had to flag someone else down when the food that was delivered was wrong and again just to pay. For the price of the food I would have expected it to be outstanding but it was just ok. It was also extremely loud and chaotic there.

GREAT VIEWS. This was the second time I have been here and have been impressed both times. The staff is friendly. The views are great, inside and outside. The music is just right as you are able to have a conversation and hear each other. Already been recommending to friends and business associates.

Talk about an extraordinary gastronomical experience perched atop a rooftop restaurant with 360 degree view of NYC? The Skylark cannot be beat! The rather unappealing entrance into a warehouse door might stop the unadventurous, but once you enter into this mysteriously lit hallway you are greeted with a wonderfully enchanting concierge who directs you to the elevator and cheerfully navigates the elevator to the top floor. Once inside, the rather dark, but alluring first floor provides several rooms and a coat check not to mention the best view for picture taking ever! You must indulge in that tourist bit! You will not regret it. And then, la creme de la creme is the overwhelming inviting enclosed rooftop lounge with chic and comfy mini lounges for parties of all sizes and just haute cuisine menu including tapas - not one bad choice! If you go to Skylark, you know you've made it in life!

Had a girls weekend in NYC for all of our 40th birthdays combined and I’m SO glad to have chosen this spot. The waitress was wonderful, the drinks were great & the food was amazing. The cauliflower tempura is a must, it was mind blowing. Can’t beat the views! I’m so so happy with this place.

Went to this place pre- theater. Took 2 13 year old girls (who have mature manners) and it was such a fun experience for them. Not sure they would have been let in past 7:30. The view is magnificent and the "small bites" were perfect for us and the girls- made them feel grown up and special. The grown ups felt special too! Thank you Skylark for a memorable meal!

I love the Skylark, especially when the Empire State Building is lit up in a special way. The Halloween lighting was everything! My only complaint was their delicious mini lobster rolls were no longer on the menu. Big bummer.

Great view. Drinks nothing special. Dispirited, neglectful service (could have done a lot better business if she had been paying attention to the empty glasses.) The clientele classy in a bridge & tunnel sort of way.
Ridiculous maze of halls and stairs to navigate in/out. Worth a shot, won't be back.
