“Great view, good food.”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We were staying at the Ravel hotel and we did not mind going upstaies every night to the Penthouse to enjoy the view and the food there. First off their sushi was really good and also the burgers we tasted. Their burgers seem to have an asian twist on them but they are really good. Service here was fast and we have no complaint about that. The view from the balcony however is the highlight of this restaurant.

“Go for the view”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I was there with my family,we made a reservation at 7.30pm. I recommend you to be there before it turns dark so you get day and night views. The views are amazing with Queensboro Bridge complementing the Manhattan skyline. We were there on a Wednesday night and it was very busy. The service is a bit slow but they are courteous. I got a deal from Living Social. You should check their Facebook page first to see whether they run promotions and sometimes they do. We tried the sushi,the fresh oysters and the curry rice and all are good. I have checked some other restaurants with views but I do find this a gem because it offers outdoor and the pricing is really reasonable if you get the deal. The nearest subway is Queensboro Plaza and what's exciting is you can call them to pick you up or drop off at the subway,cool!

“horrible night celebrating a friends birthday on the rooftop.”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I came to the ravel or as there going to call it the penthouse 808lounge on Saturday May 17 and had a horrible experience, I will give it to them the view they have on their rooftop is a million dollar view every newyorker loves. But while I was at the hotel for a friends birthday I got soaked by water that they Suppostably told me came from the roof and then we had horrible service all night half of my friends didn't even get food and half of my friends who did order didn't even get the full course that they ordered. So I'm writing this to tell people it's not worth the money, and that they don't even compensated you when something happens. Very disappointed and will never return.

“Beautiful view but...”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

The food was pricy. The Spicy Tuna Tacos were good and the drinks were pretty weak, but the food and drink was not the reason for my visit. The view of the Manhattan skyline from this place is so gorgeous that as a visitor I did not want to miss out on seeing and I was not disappointed. I would love to bump up the rating but they have to either come down on their prices to match the quality of the food or make amp up the quality of the food.
