Yes, but not the best experience you can find in Downtown LA. It's definitely not bad, you can have a drink and some bites by the pool for sunset, it's nice but globally, a pretty forgettable experience... I would rather recommend to have a drink at the "regular" NoMad bar.

Really lovely rooftop! The pool is gorgeous but I enjoyed the garden-like offshoot better.

Really bad service - had to go up to the bar 2x to get our drinks that had been sitting there for 10 minutes
Food was ok - very limited menu - pool and view is awesome - limited seating

Went here with a group of girlfriends for drinks and food and a view of LA. The drinks were pretty good, with expected high prices. The food was another story. We were appalled that the $15 guacamole and chips came out with what could not have been more than 1 avocado worth of guacamole. Literally, we dove in and we’re shocked by how fast our chips hit the bottom of the plate (we thought it was an illusion and it was deep). But nope, someone took a knife and smeared a thin layer of guacamole on a plate. We tried getting more chips at least, but don’t think for a second that’s on the house, another $3! Anyways, by this point we were so upset about the food situation we left after one drink.

Made a reservation weeks in advance they stopped the music and had a huge disruption with kids and film crews hear they do this a lot and say nothing to guests it’s a great spot but they don’t put guests or their experiences first over film money

Food was pretty good. The rooftop is just ok, not a lot of shaded areas, so it got a bit warm, and it's pretty small, with a mediocre view of all the other roofs in downtown. I took a friend there for her birthday, made of note of that in the reservation, but I think they either didn't notice, or just forgot. I would've been nice if they had wished her a happy birthday. Service was a little slow also.

The rooftop was a basic casual everyday place you can visit. The service could’ve been better because it was busy it was taking a awhile to get a waiters attention.

The place was super nice but very little on the menu and the food was small portions but also not worth how much it was. I’d come back for drinks only, also everyone was really quiet. The service was alright, since it was super quiet it was awkward to talk. But very nice view, come for drinks! And then eat somewhere else

I had a great experience for my birthday brunch however the only sad part is that there isn’t much to offer on the brunch menu wish they had more of a variety, but the food was delicious Number Moses were very good a little pricey for what they have to offer since it’s not much but overall it was a good experience

Had absolutely great service and food and drinks were delicious. I appreciated that the hostess went out of her way to save us two tables to see which one we would prefer. That was great customer service and I appreciate that very much. Will definitely be back soon and would totally recommend for everyone to visit and enjoy a nice rooftop lunch experience.

THE Place to get outside and have lunch in the sun at NOMAD Rooftop when in downtown LA. Small fare is just right to share or have your own. Weather was perfect but can get warm Nice views of surrounding high rise buildings

Food was great, even though the menu was very limited. Service was slow. The server was very pleasant just not super attentive. Food was slow to arrive. They ran out of propane for the heaters, which are a necessity on a rooftop in February. They were not very apologetic. I have had numerous wonderful experiences at the hotel both as a guest and diner. This was not one of them. Going to chalk it up to a bad night.

I really enjoyed my visit to NoMad rooftop LA. The seating is gorgeous on all sides. I really loved the couches and coziness. You won't be cold! Trust me.

I will definitely be coming back with friends. I initially went here on a date and expected more food options but it ended up being enough to have a little something while also enjoying some pretty awesome cocktails. I highly recommend the rum served in the skull head. Let me tell you that drink will creep up on you...BEWARE! It's delicious!

Gorgeous LA day - so went to the rooftop. We ordered burrata as a starter that never came. The main courses and the drinks were served at the same time - about 20+ minutes after we sat. My 28-year-old stepson was carded and we as the parents couldn't vouch for his age. We repeatedly asked for more water. Barely saw the waiter. Please compare the burger size to the one at R+D kitchen. It was perfect for me as a small woman, but my son would've needed two - but not at the full-size price. The coffee took 30 minutes to come to the table after the meal and we found our waiter to place the order. thankfully, that was comp'd.
It was an absolutely beautiful setting. Food is good but overpriced and service is painfully slow.

Host was not prepared. Dining area not prepared. Was asked to wait for over 20 minutes for a table while housekeeping brought cushions up from inside. Not a good business lunch location. No sense of urgency from anyone. No offer of assistance.

It does get very windy up on this roof so plan for cold windy weather. The view of DTLA is decent but isn't the greatest as the building itself isn't that tall.

This review is for the fabulous restaurant on the ground floor which we switched to because it was chilly on the roof. Tres chic, very hip and delicious food.
