They misplaced our order so we waited a while for our entrees. The waiter basically also forgot about us for a while also had to wave him down for more drinks. Not a great first impression.

We went there for brunch and food was the worst I ever had. We asked for additional egg and server said we can’t have ad on or make any changes to our dish. Rooftop and ambience was nice. It’s just the food and service sucked.

The food here was absolutely delicious (so good that I personally ordered a second entree). Not to mention the lively ambiance and amazing staff that were very accommodating to our needs. Looking forward to coming back here and would recommend it anyone looking for a great experience at a rooftop

We had a great time. The drinks are a little expensive, but the food is great. The rooftop can be very hot during the day. There is not a lot of shade to cover so if it's a hot or humid day, you're pretty much just baking in the sun. The food and the service was great though. I would definitely go back. Do make sure you make a reservation though!

We had to use the cheapest plastic utensils to eat. Imagine having a steak with plastic and the lowest grade claiming covid protection which is not true since we have been dining in city this past week and never were given plastic utensils. Take your own

Food was great had the doughnut balls and the huevos ranchero great; service however was not good; somehow after our waiter took our appetizer order he then became the door man down stairs. We then asked one of the bus boys to get a waiter, he asked the one who was taking care of the table right next to us who actually made a scene about not serving us; he then let us sit for about another 20 mins and then sacked if someone came over of course not, he asked the same waiter who again threw his hands up and declined. Finally we requested the host to resolve the issue he immediately sent someone over; food and drinks were great; that was a blow tho

The fact that they play music at a civilized volume is a huge advantage. I always enjoy the waitstaff and I love the "gratuity included" billing!

Unfortunately, I would not recommend Cantina Rooftop to a friend. We waited for over 10 minutes after being seated for a server. It was about 5:30pm but it seemed like the staff were still trying to play catch up from their brunch crowd. This is always an awful start to any meal.

After my sisters and I were finally greeted, the server told us it wasn't even his table but he would help us. The drinks took another 10 minutes to come. Might I add we did not even get chips and salsa until our appetizers came and we had to ask for it!

Our server, never showed face or introduced himself, or apologized for his lack of service. I can only assume that the man that ended up giving us our bill and ''serving'' us was our designated server, but who knows. The drinks were just okay and overpriced, as well as the food.

Would not return.

Went for the bottomless brunch. Food was amazing, I got the hash brown Benedict. The drinks were also delicious and they were not shy about refilling our drinks. Only problem was that our waiter was clearly very drunk. He wiped my friend's hand inappropriately and was overall sloppy. The other waiters & busboys pretty much made up for it. It was a super fun environment and would definitely recommend for friends!

Cool space. More of dive bar club than a restaurant but the food was excellent. DJ was loud during Friday dinner when there was only table crowds not bar / club crowd yet. With that excellent Mexican street style food and the fair prices it could be a fun dinner pre-party crowd.

Entrance by elevator. Rooftop it is, but building is not high. DJ was playing just for himself on a ear-wrecking noise level. Just terrible. Glasses are all plastic, beer in tin cans. Waiters OK, but asking if everything is ok every 5 min is to much. Food reasonable, but not super. Value for money off-balance. Never again.

Really hard to believe that they force you a 20% top on a table of 3 . We would probably had left more but just left with a bad taste.

The restaurant was closed when we came and they had obviously forgot to stop the booking, or the restaurant simply does not excist.... It was a bit in the middle of nowhere and no other restaurants nearby. Anyway this is not acceptable! I don’t trust this place and will not recommend it to anyone. The place did not at all look like the photos and this is for me an example that you can’t trust TripAdvisor.
