One of the most unenjoyable places i have been. Overpriced and overhyped the frose looks nothing like the one online and honestly its just not worth it at all. Also the hours are insane that they are open and it makes no sense. Wont go back.

So many rooftop places have become so crowded and noisy that they defy the respite that they're supposed to provide. Skylark is a rare treat. Phenomenal service and fare. And the atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful. Just great!

WOW! Absolutely fantastic! Our Server were really great( sorry didn’t get her name), food was very nice and the skylark cocktail was really good! We had a really good time and can’t wait to come back!

Views were really good overlooking the Empire State Building, even if coming just for drinks the view is worth it!

Thank you!!

extremely rude bartenders. i had a reservation at 4:30 when the rooftop bar opened and they placed my mother and i in the furthest corner away from the view with the empire state building while the people that came after us were all placed in seats with the best view. i thought it was because i was wearing jeans but there were many other guests also wearing jeans. i did notice that the difference between my mother and i and the other guests was that we are latina and they were all caucasian/white which makes me believe that is why we were seated in the back corner. i WILL NOT be recommending this bar to any of my friends or family who frequent new york city.

They went above and beyond! We came to celebrate my birthday and they set us up with one of the best seats, got us little margarita shots, and even had little cupcakes with a birthday candle! It was amazing!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Skylark. Our table was ready on time for our 5:30 reservation. They met us with complimentary Prosecco for the occasion!

The service and the food was excellent. The post-work crowd came filtering in with people there for all different occasions. The description of “smart casual” attire is on-point. The noise level was definitely buzzing, but never too loud for conversation.

We’re definitely coming back!

We made reservations the day before. Once we checked in with the hostess stand, we were seated promptly. We sat for 20 minutes before someone asked to take our drink order. We waited 10 more mins before we left. The views were phenomenal, but music was intolerably loud and service was non-existent!

What a fun restaurant with an amazing view of NYC! We loved the perfect portion sizes here too - we had the short rib bites and pigs in a blanket, along with sweet potato fries. Will definitely recommend and be back soon!

I was refused entry because I was accompanied by my non adult daughters. No where on the restaurant website nor in the open table app is this no entry condition indicated.

I am disappointed the app and the restaurant think I was a no show. I held my part of the agreement and duly showed on time from very far away.

It's not inexpensive, but it is a wonderful evening out. Gorgeous space with fantastic, inventive drinks and incredible food. This is not your typical bar food - it is well thought out and delicious. Brought 2 guests here and we all had a wonderful time.

Can't really say on "stars" awarded since we were denied admission. We'd planned for a while to make this a featured stop on our NYC vacation, but they would not let us in since one of our party was under 16. I know, I know... it's a bar, but we stopped for a drink at several bars over our week's vacation and never had a problem. Ironically, we scoured their web site for just that reason, but nothing led us to believe we'd have an issue. They COULD have made an exception, but perhaps we also weren't "cool" enough or something... anyway, we were highly disappointed, and suggest they put something on their website to avoid disappointment/embarrassment for future mixed groups.

When we arrived at the door on the ground level, we were told by the doorman that there was a private event taking place and we could not enter. I then told the doorman that I had a reservation after which he let us in. Once we got up to the bar there was no private event taking place. It seems that the doorman did not like the fact that we were wearing rain coats so lied about the private event in order to prevent us from entering. I’ve been to this bar many times before and I know there is no dress code especially at 6pm. The hosts were nice, the drinks were good but the food was average.

One of the best experience in NY ! Absolutely love it, and view was fabulous. Also DJ was superb. I did not expect the size of the food portion, it was big, and we had 3 kind of meals, all of them tasty, but best were burgers for us. I loved the cocktails, my partner had a few beers. Staff very polite and taking care of guests. Even the price was not so high as it could be expected for skybar in NY. I would definitely visit again.
