Great view and fun feel for a date and some wine. Food is not why you go there. Fun vibe and the view is to die for.

Took over 15 minutes to get a server at our table and couldn’t get a second drink so we had to leave.

Everything was perfect: beautiful place, nice service, delicious finger food and cocktails. Super nice decoration. The view is absolutely gorgeous. Our only concern was the noise. The music, although nice, was so loud it made it almost impossible to talk. The place is great to go with friends but you can’t talk to them like you’re in a club which is not the idea here... It was the only down side but pretty important

Food and drinks were amazing as always! Service was HORRID. I’ve never experienced this here and i visit often. The manager did take care of it after i mentioned it to him. Views are the best in the city in my opinion. The ambiance and music are TOP notch. ♥️

I enjoyed the food, music, drinks and the service of our waiter. However, I did not enjoy being removed from our table without there being other seating accommodations. I suggest adding seats to the bar or other areas as my friends and I were willing to continue to spend our money on the great food as well as drinks.

Una verguenza porque nos echaron a las 8 porque tenian un evento privado. De haber sabido, no hubiera reservado. Si hacen eventos privados no tendrian que tomar reservas!!!
Una verguenza y falta de respeto !

Very nice views, observation deck was open. Server was very friendly and gave us lots of recommendations on other stuff to do. It seemed like a high class place and she still treated us very nicely even though we weren’t spending a lot. She did order an item for me that I didn’t really want though, my bf was debating if he wanted it and she was like “I’m ordering it” lol. It was good though.

We visited for my birthday and they brought out a little cupcake with a candle in it and somehow everyone knew it was my birthday, even doorman! so I felt really special! I couldn’t eat the cupcake though cause I’m vegan and usually they have egg or dairy. I didn’t bother asking, I just let my bf have it cause he’s vegetarian.

My wife and I chose the Skylark to celebrate our second anniversary, and we were very pleased with our decision. The ambience was lovely, the service was pleasant and the views were breathtaking. Though the food left us wanting, it didn't detract from our overall experience. Thanks to everyone at the Skylark who helped in making our anniversary a memorable one, we'd most certainly recommend to others.

Fantastic experience in the heart of Manhattan! What we liked the most is that it wasn’t a touristic hotspot but more of a New Yorker joint.

Will be there again!

My boyfriend and I came here during our trip to New York and it was definitely worth it. I made a reservation for sunset time and the views we had were incredible. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. The velvet couches were such a nice touch and it felt very cozy and romantic. I will be back!

A little bit taken over by instagrammers (who actually helped us to take great photo).
Overall the view worth booking. Staff members make experience even nicer.

It was great, although we were sat in the corner with a lot of others when there was a lot of space everywhere else. The birthday cake was great!

The service was awesome. We were celebrating out Anniversary and we were greeted with Champagne. How thoughtful!!
We had a great time. Food excellent, although , I think they should also serve small plates so people can share the food and not hold it in their hands
Other wise it was a memorable night !! The view was amazing!
