We went for the rooftop view and it was lovely. The drink recommendations were spot on and the drinks nicely made. Young crowd, casual with a feeling of safety due to its great signage. Ignore the food rating. We did not eat but I could not leave the rating blank.

Had a waitress who was a first night on the job and she was kind but made mistake on the check and brought the wrong drink which she promptly fixed. If someone is NEW, & Sat. Night is their first night, they should be Shadowed.

I booked the table for my parents who are on a special trip to celebrate my mother's 80th. I knew that it was not their style of place but wanted them to enjoy the views along with a light menu on their first evening. They raised the age by about 50 years!!! BUT they had a fabulous meal and said the waitress was outstandingly sweet and kind, even bringing them cupcakes with candles to mark the occasion. The views were stupendous. A little loud for them and they didn't draw the meal out (also due to jetlag) but, all in all, a good start to their visit and they appreciated the thoughtfulness of the restaurant.

Super leuke cocktailbar met een prachtig uitzicht over de stad. Leuke bediening. Ik heb een heerlijke cocktail gedronken en we hebben 2 hapjes gegeten, beiden waren heerlijk. Gezellig ingerichte bar, voldoende ruimte. Echte aanbeveling!

Decided to try the Skylark as food was a similar concept to what I was used to back home and it did not disappoint. The food is ideal for those wanting a light bite and to share, the flavours within the food were just amazing. Every bit of food we had was gorgeous. Service was very friendly and quick, despite the restaurant/bar being really busy. The drinks were particularly brilliant, mainly sticking to the cocktails. This is definitely a place I would recommend, if you're keen on your cocktails. I'd suggest going for either the Skylark or the Skinny Paloma both very nice and refreshing drinks! I only wish I could have the opportunity to return whilst in NYC! Oh and the views just speak for themselves!

The views from the Skylark are spectacular, that said the food is atrocious and the service is despicable, at least that could be said about the waitress who was serving us, awful. Too bad.

Made a dinner reservation for 1030 pm and when we sat at our table we got rushed to put in our food order because they said the kitchen was closing. Had we known we would have gone earlier but the restaurant lead us to believe we could eat at that time.
And the waitress seemed bothered when we kept asking her for more drinks.
Awesome view but overall poor experience.

This was a nice place but not for people our age (50s). It's much more suitable to millennials and is very much an after-work place. The drinks were so-so (couldn't taste the apple in my apple cider mojito), though the appetizers were good but pricey. I would recommend it to those younger than my husband and I as a nice night spot. But be ready to spend a lot!

A nice choice if you want to drink a cocktail in a real bar, near Time square.
We went at around 10 pm and the place had as many people as you ideal want in a bar. Surrounding by skyscrapers, definitely deserves a visit.
