This is an amazing space that has a lot of potential. The rooftop patio is great, is walled in and has a roof and the heaters are fantastic. You would never know it's November by the temps inside. It was a little toasty for some of my party and being right under the heaters was a bit intense for myself. But it's better than being on a "heated patio" shivering because the heaters only work for those directly beside them.

The food was overly salty on all dishes and the service felt a little rushed. I understand it's different times but for the price I would have expected dishes with more flavors and feeling a little less rushed in terms of each course as they came out before we had even finished. We also ordered wine twice and each time we were brought the wrong bottle.

I would love to return and see if they make changes to the food and service as this has a ton of potential during this upcoming winter to be a hot spot.

Hi Chris, Thank you for your feedback. We were tweaking the heating, it's taken trial now we're extremely warm. Once the colder weather hits; it will be perfectly comfortable. As for the service experience; we have extended our reservation lengths based on feedback from patrons from the weekend you joined in order to resolve any rushing service errors. Hopefully you can come and join us again soon!

We were made to feel rushed once we entered the restaurant. The hostess and the server reminded us countless times that we have 90 minutes only. The server tried to take our order before our entire party arrived. She insisted that we order our drinks and our food at the same time because they were in a rush. We were forced to order off a prix fixe menu. 3/4 of us ordered the grilled ribeye but were told we could only have it medium rare - we couldn't order it cooked to our preferences. The meat came before the vegetable dish which made no sense. Most of our grilled ribeyes were raw and had to be sent back. My friend ordered white wine and it had to be sent back because it was warm. The second glass she received was also warm. My other friend ordered a cocktail with light ice and it had to be sent back because it was filled to the top with ice. We felt rushed/unwelcome/food was tossed at us asap and wasn't cooked properly. We are aware of the stress that restaurants are under because of covid rules and we were there to support Skyflower but the service was awful/the food and drinks as described above unacceptable and overpriced for the quality of what we received. The best part of our 90 minutes at Skyflower was the atmosphere and the support table staff (the ones bringing the food/clearing the table): they were nice and professional.

Hi Xanadu, We are aware of your specific experience. The night you joined us was unexpected as the great weather put us well above what we were staffed for; combined with an influx of walk-in reservations all at prime-time. As a result of this evening; we have reworked our reservation lengths to 2 hours. We have also taken actions based on your service feedback in regards to staff to ensure this is isolated. Please email us and we can arrange for another visit. Thank you for your feedback!

Hi Bhoomi, Thank you for your feedback. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our service experience, and all other aspects of the restaurant. Ambience is a big thing for us and we are constantly evolving the decor. As for food, food is definitely fresh; everything down to sauces and sourdough bread is made fresh in-house daily. Hopefully on your next visit you will see improvements across the board!

Was very disappointed in some of the dishes, I got the Vietnamese lettuce wrap and it was very NOT special. It was literally a piece of lettuce, some pickled carrots and a piece of shrimp. Not very flavourful nor exciting to eat. The broccolini was so dry I couldn't even eat it. Both persons in our party who got the broccolini ended up not eating it and left it. Overall was expecting a lot more than what it ended up being.

Skyflower
Responded on November 13, 2020

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it! We are constantly taking customer opinions into consideration. Our Vietnamese Lettuce Wraps is a familiar favourite, however we are aware that it's typically people eating cleaner who order this dish. Our Broccolini comes with a spicy sesame aioli (made in-house), togarashi, and cured egg yolk that should make for a balanced dish full of flavour. Please email us so we can offer you something special on your next visit to make up for this experience.

The hostess was more so accommodating than our waitress. I appreciated her letting us know we could finish our dinner since we spent good money on our food.

Skyflower
Responded on November 14, 2020

Hi Annika, We could be mistaken; but it seems like you're describing being rushed. We changed our menu and some seating processed on the weekend of you visit; which resulted in seatings that were too short for certain groups sizes to finish their meals. As a result we have changed our seating times to provide a smoother experience. This all came as a direct result of patron feedback; so thank you for letting us know where we need to improve. It's much appreciated!

The food and cocktails were excellent. Really well thought out flavours and textures on the plate.

The patio was a little too covered for my tastes, I think it needs more ventilation. And the music was loud enough that I had to raise my voice to be heard.

The food came out really quickly, which was nice. But the service felt a little rushed. We were asked multiple times whether we were done with our plates or whether we were ready to order/reorder drinks.

I think the set up could be improved to be more COVID responsible, but the food was great and the staff are friendly!

Skyflower
Responded on November 13, 2020

Hi Ferngully, Thank you for your feedback. We have been strategically setting up ventilation to make sure it is set up as safely as possible for pandemic reasons. There is actually a lot of ventilation coming through from a large gap hidden behind the centre plants along with multiple air was throughout the roof to create a draft (we have just made this bigger as well!) As for volume; we also have to now turn this down now for compliance so moving forward it will be a lot lower. See you soon!

The patio was nice and warm, the servers were lovely, and the ambiance was on point. There were no other options for food besides the 3 course prix fixe menu, which was oddly designed - the starter was good, but were we supposed to eat a whole plate of salty vegetables on its own as a 2nd course, then eat another whole plate of salty meat on its own as the last course? That made no sense.

Skyflower
Responded on November 14, 2020

Thank you for your feedback Sara! We had some logistics to figure out; on Halloween night we were extremely busy. Certain tables received their main and veg with space between. This wasn't by design; it was a limitation we have since adjusted. Would love to have you come and join us again; please send an email with your contact details so we can offer you something special. We genuinely value this feedback!

Amazing experience from beginning to end even having head chef Alvin come over and greet us which was a wonderful gesture. All the dishes were on point and though it’s not inexpensive it’s worth it. The current pre fixe menu is a great value as well. Well done to Emily, Fernando and especially Jada

Food was delicious! Amazingly warm for a rooftop patio as well. Great for a date night or special occasion.

I understand there is a 1.5 hr time limits for a reason, and we were conscious of it during our stay, but we had been at the table for just 1 hr and 5 minutes, they literally had just took our plates from us, and then asked if they can get the bill "because other people have reso's". Which kind of took the shine off as we hadn't had time to digest, hadn't had a chance to think about deserts nor was it an option. I'd love to go back but hope they reconsider how they deal with the time limit, maybe just extend it to 2 hours instead.

The food was amazing and the heaters kept the place warm. Service and cocktails were also really good. But the fact that the view is covered with tents should be more clear since that was definitely a draw when looking at pics of the patio. It felt like being inside vs being on a rooftop.

Skyflower
Responded on October 28, 2020

Hi Bob, We appreciate your positive review! We have 2 stages to our all-season patio; currently we have install wind barriers along with a covering that obstructs the amazing view from the rooftop. Our next step is to construct a permanent structure that can be used all year round that is glass and non-reflective for the view. Right now, we're working with what we have during the lockdown in order to continue to operate. Hopefully you can continue to visit and see our progress as we build!

First time at Skyflower and YOU have to go! It’s the cutest little spot with amazing food. The pre fixe menu is to die for. So worth the price and the food WAS FIRE!! Cute cocktails like The Boo or the campfire old fashion. The set up the restaurant is very unique, spooky halloween decor! The service we received was so amazing and we will definitely be back again. They made us feel welcomed and gave us an amazing experience.

So far, the response has been great. As for the 18% service charge; this goes directly to our staff and we stand behind this being the best decision we could make during challenging times.

The patio is so nicely designed and the view of the city is lovely. Food and service was 10/10. Had a very delicious drink called "Pimm's Cup NO.99 Just keep in mind that its tapas style. So smaller shareable plates. Overall, would recommend.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time at the sky flower! Didn't try the drinks nut after getting all these meals and twice the shrimp wraps it cost a little under 100$ plus tip. The food was really good and they gave us complimentary corn which was also lovely. Overall, if you're looking for something different and fun. I recommend. However if you want to save money, not to go as the portions are smaller and pricey

Aesthetics are date night/girls night out cute and the service was on point. If you are hungry this isn’t the spot for meals just finger food and snacks. Also now that it’s fall bundle up cause they have no heaters which they need to get if they are going to stay open for the fall season because it was super cold at night.
