“Perfect place for drinks!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Went here with my gf to enjoy drinks and an appetizer while the sun set over the Old City before dinner. The roof''s ambience is great with comfortable chairs, nice music and a breathtaking view over the entire city.

We sat at a hightop table near the bar. Our server, Shlomit, was great, helpful and patient and walked us through all of the possible dishes we could have ordered as a small appetizer. We eventually settled on the Sea Fish Sashimi which was delicious.

More importantly, for our drinks we were not sure what to order but again Shlomit threw out a bunch of suggestions. Eventually we just told her what flavor and base liquor we were looking for and she teamed up with Ran at the bar, to do just that. I wanted a spicy drink and Ran came over to explain how he made it and also made sure we enjoyed it! It was great, best cocktail I had while in Israel! If you go to the bar, ask for Ran and I am sure he will be able to whip up whatever you are in the mood for.

Great view, great service, and great quality- will definitely return.

“Great experience with a breathtaking view”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

The weather was lovely, the view stunning, the company perfect and the food exquisite. Our evening starts off with the sommelier coming over to recommend a nice wine. He came up with a lovely Yarden red wine. Then our waitress came over, she was very pleasant and also made good suggestions for us. She started by giving us locally roasted chick peas and home-made bread which were both delicious. The food we had was superb, served a good intervals and followed by delicious desserts. Fantastic.

To add to the atmosphere there was group sitting beside us and half way through the dinner a couple stood up it was clear they had or were about to get married. Turns out one of their group was a pastor, he stood up with iPad in hand (guess it was an iBible or had iVows!) and married them there and then. There was a great round of applause from all people in the restaurant. Really nice.

Definitely going back to this place net time we are in town.

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Six of us had a wonderful dinner at the Rooftop. We lucked out with a perfect night weather wise. Avi was our server and he was wonderful. We we asked for a wine suggestion, he immediately had the sommelier come over and we got a really wonderful recommendation for a local wine. We asked for suggestions off the menu and Avi gave us some excellent choices. The service overall was wonderful and the meals ranged from sea bass to burgers. All were very happy with their choices. We will be back!

I had a great last night in Jerusalem at the Rooftop. The food and the view were terrific and Itamar, took very good care of me. I highly recommend -- don't miss the sunset over the old city.
