Wow! A spectacular view. You must go at sunset, it's just gorgeous. I went here for an event, my sister rented the rooftop for her birthday. The service was great the food was wonderful and it could not have been a better location for a summer party!

Our group arrived here for a late breakfast. The view was really beautiful and relaxing. The food was delicious - huevos rancheros and hangover burgers with a fried egg. There was a good selection of juices as well. The prices were decent, and the only thing lacking was the service - a little slow and spotty as opposed to attentive... More

The seat-yourself system is a bit nuts--basically, you're on your own and need to be vultures to snatch a table. BUT, once seated, the meal is unbelievably memorable! The view from this open-air rooftop is absolutely dreamy and the atmosphere is relaxed and happy. We enjoyed brunch thoroughly (great mimosas and sangria!) and appreciated that we never felt rushed.

We had reservations at the restaurant downstairs so we went up to view the beautiful sunset. It is very crowded and they don't have enough servers to serve everyone. The view is nice but not worth the hype.
