Had noted on my dinner reservation it was a special occasion with our 3 young children. We had a 3pm dinner reservation and found out when we arrived that they were only serving brunch and that dinner doesn’t start until 4pm. The restaurant was empty. We requested dinner menus from the waitress and were impolitely told no. We went to the Maitre D and explained that this was not mentioned on the website and that it was after 3pm and the restaurant was empty, could we order dinner? We were once again impolitely and in a curt manner told no. Ordered some food anyway as we had no where else to go. Food we had was great; however, they barely cleaned the table when new dishes were brought and things piled up. It’s not like they were busy.
I realize that we were requesting an exception, but the restaurant was empty. I can’t imagine it would have been a big deal to accommodate us. By the time we were done it was well after 4pm. Kids hated it as they were forced to eat brunch when they wanted dinner. We will never go back and never recommend as the staff is rude & unaccommodating.
Did I mention the restaurant was empty? I wonder why...

The place is conveniently located near NY Penn station. There is no waiting for the elevator. The place is nicely done and the service was efficient. It is a good experience, just not for the price conscious.

I made a reservation for my partner's birthday and requested a nice table. Upon arrival we were stuck on to one of the back booths and had to experience one of the rudest waitresses I have had in my life. Food was decent enough but it did not compensate the lukewarm welcome we received and the lack of service.

I've become a regular at Versa. Am usually there after work for dinner once a week with my boyfriend. Food is delicious. Great ambiance. Not far from Penn Station/Madison Square Garden. Nothing to not love about this place

Cocktails were terrible / sour. They must have had a new bartender making them or something wasn’t labeled correctly behind the bar. We ended up going elsewhere.

I haven’t expect much because this place is a hotel restaurant. I chose this restaurant because it is easy to access from Penn station. The bday lady came from Long Island. Their Food was ok. Calamari was good, especially calamari sauce was my favorite among all the dishes that night. Presentation of burgers were ok. I ordered the Versa stack and patties were overcooked. French fries were ok. Ambience was nice. We ordered cappuccino with churros and a cake to share and we never got the churros. Asked them and they said they would check and let us know but the person never got back to us until we left. Cappuccino was cold. Overall, it was not that horrible but just ok since I didn’t expect much.

Great service (the place was empty , so that helped) Food was good and came quickly. Main problem is that it's super over-priced for what you get.

We ended up sitting in the bar ancestor three more people joined us, which was fine. The problem was the service was horrible. We had to ask for someone to take our original drink order no one ever came to us to see if we needed anything. Each time we wanted to order drinks or even dinner, we had to ask someone to help us. Each time it was a different person. I’ll never go back.

We had a nice meal, but nothing particularly special. The service was a little slow. The portions were huge, and we ended up wasting quite a bit of food. And there was a big open window in the adjacent space where someone was filming live sports commentary. The lights from there were blinding.

This was a good quick stop for a small plates bite before going to a MSG event. Basic sportsbar food in a noisy but upbeat atmosphere. Best to let your party know that it's in the Renaissance Hotel and you need to go to the 5th floor to get there. Signs are technically there, but not real clear. Elevators are a bit funky and stairs are not an option. Restrooms are on the floor below. Check in and seating is slow, but table service is brisk and friendly.

It's a very easy place- and the food is very good- missing the lively area as they renovate. And they could have happy hour drinks, but a very nice comfortable place with good food

The ambiance is nice and service is professional. The low mark s for the food. The three of us had a salad each and shared a plain pizza. We all agreed we had the most mediocre and distasteful salads. Further, just about any pizza joint has a better pizza than the one we had. This establishment should consider getting a new kitchen staff immediately.

Chose Versa because of the great location 2 blocks from Madison Square Garden. Had dinner there before Billy Joel concert. Restaurant is on the 5th floor of the Renaissance hotel. Listed as a rooftop restaurant, it was too cold to eat outdoors, but still it had a definite outdoorsy vibe. Interesting menu - ordered 3 apps for our group - Tuna Tatare, Cheese Pizza and Bruchetta - each one was great. Main dishes were equally good. Could use 1 or 2 more vegan options - the only one was a veggie burger but otherwise a very nice experience.

Brunch on a Sunday. I was disappointed to see 10:15 and 11:45 were the only available times to book at, before or after. When we walked in the place was empty leaving our desired 11.00 very much available. Was disappointed since we could have used those extra 45 minutes in our day and they would have easily been able to accommodate.

Nice place to catch a quick business lunch. It was a very cold January day so it was a little chilly in the restaurant. Plan on visiting when the weather is warm and we can take advantage of their retractable roof. That's gotta be great.

Versa is a terrific hot spot. The rooftop space is very cool, and the food and service are excellent. It's a good choice for late night dining, as well.
