Reasonably priced by NYC standards and incredible views, absolutely stunning!

Food was average. Service started good then I think they had a shift change and it went downhill a bit.

Wine was nice! I definitely recommend and would go back.

Not all it's cracked up to be. Very unorganized, overpriced and atmosphere is super tacky. Managers are not very nice to staff and voice their disappointments in the front of the house. Apparently it's a big deal to get the salad dressing of your choice as the cooks come out berating the servers when they attempt to change from house dressing to a customers preference. Also a 20% service charge is added to your check that is not a tip and may or may not go to the service staff.

Service terrible. Food terrible. If it wasn’t for the view this place wouldn’t be opened. Avoid at all cost.

Great place in the heart of LIC / Astoria.

Views were nice, other places are closer to the water with clearer views but this was good
It’s the food!!

The saganaki was the best I’ve had. Along with the octopus, were the perfect 2 apps to start our meal.
My gal had the lamb chops and I went with the truffle mushroom orzo dish. Both were really good !

She loved her choice of specialty drinks and I chose my norm. Both were on point.

NYC has tens of rooftop bars now. But we’ll come back here again. For the food first , then the view

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 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~

LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS. In reality I was expecting much more than what we actually experienced. This place got overbooked, and must be this the reason of poor service, delays and bad quality food. Social distance was violated, specially when a reservation and a contract was made for an event and end up getting squeezed and mixed up with the rest of the public.
"The contract" for my family event that was violated by the manager from the very beginning, since puntuality was not guarantee and as a result last minute surprises and delays. Elevator and bathroom are horrible experience as well. In regards the price ITS PRICELY WHEN YOU ACTUALLY PAYED FOR A SERVICE, BUT HAD GUESTS LEFT WITHOUT HAVING DINNER AND DESSERT. Not a pleasant environment eventhough the view is absolutely beautiful. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE. My family event celebration was ruined by their unprofessional service.

THEY ARE AMAZING and YES THE BEST EVER!! I can't thank them enough!! shout out to MIKE, BILL and PATRICK. They are easy to work with and accommodate our requests. They are very patient with us and really attend to our needs. They are the type of people that really love what the do, they really want to help you and please you and they are really passionate about their work.

The Venue: from the rooftop to the penthouse, it is amazing, Manhattan skyline! we fell in love with the place the first time we saw it! need I say more?

The Food: there are lots of choices! guests loved it! from appetizers to desserts! yummy!

The Staff: as I said I can't them enough! MIKE and BILL, a million thanks! from planning to the day itself you've been hands on, from small things such as linen colors to letting us putting our stuff the night before and letting us set-up (thanks Patrick), to putting my wedding bouquet in the kitchen refrigerator, to bringing us food in the Bridal suit because we can't make it to Cocktail hour, to bringing us food on our table during the wedding day so we don't need to stand up and go to the buffet, to having us some food to go, to checking up on us every time if we need something (we really appreciate you Bill). May God bless you all!! We highly recommend this place!!
