I'm so disappointed! Cantina Rooftop was my choice of the Dinner Spot for my friends & I this past Sunday. I made a 5pm reservation for 6 people earlier that day. We arrived and upon entering the elevator to head up to the rooftop, we...More

This one is off the beaten track in Manhattan but good value and worth a visit. It's not the easiest to find as it isn't at street level and requires you to take a lift to get there, but it has a roof top location...More

Food was decent but not the type of view I expected. The building is not very high up and the walls block your view so your mostly just looking up at the sky and can't really see any of the surround areas.

Never going here ever again! Aside from the long line and long wait for a subpar place, the bouncers discriminate against patrons and then try to extort money to get in. Sorry, rather spend my money elsewhere!

Such a fun vibe. Music set the tone of a lively lounge rooftop. It seemed like an ad of a typical rooftop summer scene. Guacamole was great. Minor details. They forgot the olives on my body Mary along with silverware and napkins. I was thinking...More

The food was super yummy! Nothing fancy and a small menu but I highly recommend the nachos! Also if you're looking for a strong drink get the margaritas! What an amazing view, I can't wait to go back!

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
