I was celebrating my anniversary with my boyfriend and all the staff was willing to help, specially gib that was so nice to us. They were very attentive that everything was perfect: we set the balloons, they took us a lot of pictures, they change the music for the dessert when we blow the candles (we didn't even ask for it!)
The food was good, big quantities and it was served pretty fast.
The place is beautiful we could watch the sunset and go outside to take some pictures, the view is astonishing!!!
Prices are affordable and very suitable for all the experience in the rooftop.
We will definitely come back, thanks for everything!

View was beautiful, service was underwhelming. There was a large party in the same room and not attentive to us at all. We had a FROZEN chicken wing and they said they’d replace them. 20 minutes go by and no wings. They were taken off the bill because “disliked” which is untrue. Overall food was okay, and view was very pretty

It was my first time at Vista Sky Lounge and I will DEFINITELY go back! With gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline, kind and friendly staff, and a delicious menu of both food and drinks at affordable prices, I believe I've found one of my new favorite hidden spots. An added bonus was the great selection of music at just the right volume and not crazy crowded, so we could actually enjoy conversation and hear each other.

The view was stunning, food was not great besides the greek dish. The service was fine, very friendly, but a bit slow. The tables, chairs, glasses and utensils were plastic.. Overall, was expecting a nice fancy restaurant, but was very disappointed.

We celebrated my mom’s Birthday and we were treated so warmly & professionally.
The food was generous and decent.
They even turned on the portable heater when they saw that we were getting chilly.
The views from the roof top were of course the real reason why we went there but it was worth it.

The place was good but the waitress was terrible. It felt like she was rushing us to eat our food. My calamari plate was still half full and she was already asking if she can take it away. We were not ready to place our main course orders because we were still enjoying the appetizers and as usual the conversations between my wife, our daughter, and me but she was insisting on it like she wants to turn her table pretty fast. Never bothered to complain nor bother asking for her name because I still want to have a good time with my family. We also decided to order coffee and dessert but the coffee was taking too long that we just decided to cancel it.

It was my birthday dinner and about 5 others as well. Maybe that’s the spot eldrich Mellenials go to have a dinner with view.
The music played was so inappropriate. Basic, boring azz second rate techno remixes and club music. No one was there to party. For a restaurant bragging about ambience - poor lighting from electric candles too weak to illuminate the laminated menu - were less than ideal.

Food was okay, not great, but appropriate for the price point.
All cocktails came with ice - even the Negroni, so everything was a bit watery.
Wine selection is decent, was able to order one of my fav wines.

Overall it was a great nice with friends, because my friends are great.

The views were STUNNING, even on an overcast day. The food was subpar and the drinks were quite small, especially for the prices. I would recommend bar height tables to provide a clearer view of the skyline.

The only reason I give this place 1 star is because I can’t give them 0 stars. To whoever is thinking about booking this place, please take my word it’s not worth it.

The food and drinks are terrible, the service is terrible and rushed. If you book this place you will definitely leave feeling unsatisfied as I did.

Please read the reviews and look at their overall rating. I failed to pay attention to the review and was willing to give this place a try because of the view but it’s definitely not worth it.

Regards,

Unsatisfied customer

The view was really great however the service was poor, the food and drinks were terrible. I ended up spending over $200 dollars and I left feeling unsatisfied. The occasion was my wife’s birthday and when I booked this reservation I made a special request for the waiter to bring a cup cake with a lit candle for my wife. They did not even read the request since this was never done.

I am definitely not going here again. I did see the poor reviews they had but I was willing to give this place a try because the view looked beautiful but it’s definitely not worth it.

Whoever is reading this I do not recommend this place.

Regards,

Unsatisfied customer.

We drove down from Northern Westchester, scooped up my mom and found this rooftop restaurant on the East River overlooking the 59th St Bridge and city skyline. Our reservation was for 7, timed for sunset and night lights. We were seated immediately; the cocktails were delicious and so were the grilled octopus and the fig salad. My entree steak was very good, hubby's chicken kabob the star of the evening, mom's seafood pasta was fine, nothing special. Don't bother with the side of grilled vegetables- five slices of zucchini.

The place is small and was packed on a Tuesday night, but comfortably so in Covid times. We got a garage for parking and had to walk a few blocks. It's a working class Queens neighborhood, a bit deserted and dark on our walk back after din, but nothing that worried this Queens girl. We will go back, but during the week; as we all got the idea it might get a bit too loud and wild on weekends for us-I was celebrating my 60th there and could not have asked for a more perfect evening out~

One thing to be aware of is the 20% gratuity added to your bill, easy to miss...
