More effort could be given into seating arrangements during Covid. As a table of two we were given one very awkward bench to share, which didn’t allow us to look at each other. Our backs where against a planter box which wasn’t comfortable. A heater was brought out but it had no gas. Again, great view and food, just a little unprepared. 😊

Having to sit on pretty much a bench (not even a dining table) and stare directly at another group across from you is a little bit awkward. Everything we drank and ate could have easily been just as good if not better from a different restaurant that didn't have a view so that is pretty much all your paying for. This restaurant is trying way to hard to be boujie for its own good. If the food and drinks matched how good the view was, then maybe I'd come back, but I have a feeling this is due to management issues that won't change any time soon.

We ordered a pitcher of red sangria and would not order it again. The sangria tasted more like grape juice, overly sweet. Overall beautiful patio. Would definitely visit again.

For mains, we had the Crispy Chicken (generous serving) and Steak Banh MI (very tasty). However, before we got to desert, the hostess told us that somebody else had booked our table and we had to leave or move to a lesser table. Our group of three had ordered three small plates, three mains and 8 or 9 drinks over the course of 2 hours but they didn't mind pushing us out the door to make room for the next guests. The view was beautiful and I suggest that this location would be a good stop for a quick drink on the way to somewhere else but if you're looking for a full meal experience, expect to be pushed out. Our celebration turned into a negative experience.

Not really a family restaurant. Had the fish and chips, soggy batter not really appetizing.

This seemed like a good sign that it was going to be worth the wait - it wasn't. We arrived upstairs to a quick greeting and was quickly brought to our table. For booking a month in advance we expected to sit at a table with a view, as you would expect from a rooftop bar. We were sat facing directly towards a wall at what looked like a place you would seat customers until their actual table was ready. The waiter hastily stopped by with barely a hello and placed two glasses(which were still stacked together) and a carafe of water onto the table and walked away. We tried to ask for a potential table change, which was denied because "it was already booked." I guess we lost the luck of the draw and the table that we had booked was the worst seat in the place. Beware that there is no shade there as well(this would be tolerable if the quality of service matched the price of the drinks). I can not speak for the quality of the drinks since we ended up leaving before the waiter returned to take our order. You will probably find better service and better value at any other restaurant in the Byword Market.

They reserve a portion of the tables for hotel guests in case they decide to come, which means the rooftop is half empty most of the time. There is no restaurant vibe or ambiance, as the music is outdated and quiet, and the rooftop is half empty. Come for 30-40 mins for the view and some photos, get one (mediocre) drink and move on to another restaurant as your main dinner/drinks spot.

The only thing that was a bit bothering is we were seated near the entrance and there was always people standing right by us taking picture all evening over us or asking us to take their picture, we felt very crowded even though the patio is large enough.

Menu is not very extensive: handful of drinks, few salads and mains. We tried to order some salad, but they were out of ingredients, so the choice was even smaller. Drink were OK, not something special, that worth dying for. Service is awful. To get a menu, you need to scan some QR code, that we were unable to do because the QR code was not scanable. OK, we went online to check the menu - not big deal. But waiting for the waiter to take our order .... Was unacceptably long, so I had to find the waitress and ask her to come. After that we had to wait a good 40 mins to get our salad delivered. I am not sure why chopping few lettuce leafs and cherry tomatoes takes that long, probably they went to a farm to get it fresh. May be. In general - anything requiring waiters' attention - taking an order, delivering it, payment - took very, very long time. In addition, we were given a very uncomfortable table and my request to change it to another available table was refused. Overall - we did not like it.
