    Everything was perfect just way too many bees. I don’t know why but there is a huge bee problem that is a problem, especially when you are trying to eat and drink. Other than that, the place had excellent food and the service was pretty good.

    Arrived for dinner and found out when we went up to be seated that it was closed from a sign and a locked door. No one contacted us or gave an explanation though it was a bit chilly out. You’d think an upscale place would call their reservations ahead of time.

    Our server disappeared and never put our food order in the system. No one came over to us to say we had a different server or to check on us. We ended up leaving after an hour and a half went by without our food. They comped our drinks which was nice. It's a beautiful spot but unfortunately we left hungry.

    They no longer serve brunch, so don’t be fooled! The Lobster and Shrimp roll and Buratta were good! The pasta was average! Terrace faces mostly back of the Notre Dame and other buildings

    Was excited for this rooftop drink and app date. While several of the staff were great, We had a waitress who was more concerned with hanging out with her waitstaff friends than checking in on us to see if we needed anything. We twice had to flag her down and once had to ask another wait staff person to get her to come back to our table after about a 30 min wait. Atmosphere created by several waitstaff including the main hostess was sophomoric and not what one would expect from a venue associated with this class of hotel.

    If it rains the Terrace will be closed. The option is to eat in the street level restaurant. The lamb shanks were over cooked and dry. The pasta was oddly seasoned.

    View is gorgeous! Ambience would be 5-star except that music was too loud for eating dinner and enjoying conversation. Would be nice if they had a better check-in policy. Huge line down a long, narrow corridor with no indication that most of those waiting did not have reservations. Folks with reservations get stuck in same line. Also not fun to navigate if you need the bathrooms. Our appetizers were fabulous-tuna tatare and Greek salad. Entrees were just okay. Fries soggy, burgers overdone. Lobster and shrimp roll very generous in size but not much flavor. Worth going to for drinks and snacks, though, for that view.

    You pay for the view and the likes it gets you when you're an influencer. The service is kind of okay when they don't forget you or half your order ... Bringing appetizers and main dishes at the same time on a cool and windy day isn't smart, since most of it end up being cold before you can eat it. Pitchers of sangria aren't worth the price, 5 to 7 slices of fruit floating in diluted wine and ice isn't up to par.

    The experience was good, I would recommend the view, there are many rooftop terrace restaurants with similar views, try them all! This one offers a view of the Basilica. Be sure to make a reservation. Music was LOUD, our table was right under the speaker and had to speak very loud to hear each other. Definitely meant for a much younger age group...not our type of music but again, we were there for the view. If you're allergic to bee's, ask to be sat away from the bar area.

    Hornets were brutal on rooftop. Server was definitely not happy with his job. It took half an hour just to get a Diet Coke and a draft beer. Everyone around us was served first, meanwhile we were the first out on rooftop. Our order was wrong. The upside, we had an amazing view. But it’s very pricey with a limited menu. I don’t usually leave reviews, but felt this one was necessary.

    We had the best waiter which made up for a few downsides. Blond young man with blue eyes, a native of Montreal, who told us so many interesting things about the city and was just charming. the drinks were good but a tad pricey. the view is good but not amazing. the bees were in full force and i know there's not much they can do about that at this time of year, but it was really a nuisance.

    Our burgers were burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. The manager was very gracious and we didn't have to pay for dinners, just for our drinks. The views were very nice, very nice location and set up. The food menu is very small.

    My husband and I decided to try this rooftop restaurant. His pasta was good but my food was cold and dry. Service was horrible. Couldn’t get server back to check on us or ask if we wanted more drinks. Another employee said he went on break! I could go on but it’s a waste of time to go here.

    Very nice rooftop location to a large degree ruined by bad, extremely loud, pulsing, repetitive club music instead of tasteful music. They should play good music during the dinner hours and wait to crank up the club music until much later in the evening. The music and atmosphere doesn’t match the classy sophistication of the hotel.

    Lobster and Crab Entree was great. Definitely worth the cost. Got ours with a Greek salad side. No lettuce in the Greek salad but it was covered with olive oil and herbs, delicious. Service was sub par. Waitress said she would be trading off with another waitress. We didn't have an issue with this, except our order didn't come out for over an hour after we ordered. It took us flagging down the same waitress who had miraculously returned before our order was checked on. Aside from the service, the ambience (DJ, location and view) helped justify the higher prices. The place is known for drinks. Sangria was great our friends mocktail's were disappointing. Would definitely go back to confirm if poor service was a one time issue or persistent.
