We had the best anniversary!!! Thank you!!!
Fabulous service in a really special place.
Not a lot of vegetarian options, but the service and ambience made up for it.
I love the cozy lodge feel to this place! Very immersive and the service and food was great. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and I’m definitely coming back in the future.
This used to be a 5/5 roof top in the winters with the old Ski Lodge and fireplace. Very disappointed to see everything that was unique in Manhattan turning into more of a boring capitalistic superficial "fit as many as possible at cost of uniqueness". Will have to look for a new unique place. The new McKittrick management/owner ruining the place.
Staff is very nice and helpful, and service is quick for people who are there to see a show. The food however was disappointing and basically like pub fare, which is probably why it can be made so quickly. Considering the pricing and venue, was expecting better food.
Our drinks were delicious and the food was pretty good, if a little bland. The mince pie dessert, however, was doughy and flavorless. And for $10, it was basically child sized. Our server was fantastic and the ambience is cool (it was cooler in previous years), but not worth it for the price.
Mostly disappointed about the bar staff who was rude to us after we had just grabbed dinner at the restaurant. Were told to make room for other guests and free the bar when it was empty. Food was unfortunately not very tasty and still ended up with a 200$ tab for two
Lovely evening, great and friendly service, great cocktails, very charming place
The lodge has a very different set up and ambiance than previous years. It used to be a magical forest feel with different rooms and places to bring drinks. This year there is just one large dining room. Food and service was fine, but overall very disappointed that it wasn’t as interesting and fun as before. Ok if you are hungry after seeing a show there and want something close, but definitely not worth going out of your way for.
This place was hyped up to be a large and immersive cabin and lounge, with great food and drinks.
The ambiance although pretty cool was small and limited. Essentially aside from a dinning room and lackluster rooftop there was no where to just have a drink or lite bite and be immersed in the cabin. Pizza was good other food okay. Waiter was great but elevator and host staff were rude and unfriendly.
I was disappointed because the decor is far less fun and interesting and special than it used to be. I was here a few years ago and they had the unique decor from the play, with private rooms with bunk beds and all kinds of fun secret hideaways to play in. I brought my friend here from out of town to give her a unique NYC quirky and charming experience.
But the place has been largely transformed into a conventional if pleasant restaurant. I asked the waiter about the change and he said they got rid of the interesting and fun stuff several months ago. He agreed with me that it is a real loss and said many of the staff there also agreed it wasn't what it used to be. I had googled around to see if the place was like it was years ago but there wasn't much info about this.. So I want others to know. It's still a nice place, but it isn't that special anymore.
Thanks to Sarah Funky’s YouTube video , my daughter and I attended tonight. Whilst there was a tad of disappointment with no fondues, the French onion soup and warm spirited cocktails were amazing! The outdoor fireplace was gorgeous and the staff were great! I recommend this place to everyone (& quietly, the only place in NYC with a smoking section)!!
The cocktail there is amazing. We had a Black lady and a Sleep No More. They are definitely worth to try.
Food is in general overpriced and tastes terrible. We had fries and pizza. They taste like frozen food from whole food.
Started off being packed into a small area to wait for the elevator, which finally came down 5 mins later and were told that it was only for performers at the hotel’s other bar venue. We were then shuffled back outside in a huge group and taken halfway down the block to another door and were told to get on another elevator, but everyone was lost and confused when we got there. After navigating the dark maze inside we eventually made it to our table almost 15 minutes after our reservation time, and were seated at a 4-top table right in front of the door with freezing air blowing in every time it opened. Service was disorganized and it seemed like the server had never done this before. The only redeeming factor was that the food, drinks and dessert were great (though overpriced). Would probably not come back to this location.
What an amazing space to enjoy a holiday beverage. The hot cocoa with vanilla vodka and cinnamon was UNBELIEVABLE!
Great location but very small fireplace for people to sit in. I would still recommend to anyone.
Awesome place definitely a great place for date night or even a casual night out with friends. BRING A JACKET if your going during the winter months. There is only one heater.
Great Location, also with sneaker we gained access. We are a Family, it was Rainy, only few People were there, therefore Plenty of Space for the Kids. Would come back! Prices are Medium.
This was so disappointing. We had heard so many good things but I felt like it was overrated, overpriced and tacky. The food wasn’t even that good and the cheesy Halloween decor was overkill for me. Also, the restaurant cards at the door (21+) and they took our IDS and put Xs on our hands which was really annoying because we had no idea and then could not go out after with black sharpie Xs on our hands. We wish we would have known it was 21+ especially because it was so unexpected for a restaurant with such a cheesy/ Disney Epcot atmosphere.
The ambiance is worth a lot. It feels enchanting to be on the roof with a Great Gatsby feel. The dinner menu is limited and the I would say just fair, but the ambiance makes it taste better ;)
- very cool rooftop setting, decorated for fall
- entry ambience of an old dark probably haunted hotel
- right off the Highline
- good pizza
- being put at the end of a long table, in the bulk seating area, on the table leg despite having an opening hour reservation
- questionable oysters that we didn’t finish
- skittish waiter
- More available than Open Table led us to believe
- good for a drink and appetizers
Great experience before we went to Sleep No More to celebrate a birthday!
Perfect place for a special date. Ambiance was spectacular. Food and drinks were way over priced but that’s the city for you. Service was super quick. I would definitely go back here.
Great atmosphere, nice staff, ok food but pricey.
Walking out on the rooftop terrace really does make you feel like you've been transported to a fall harvest festival out in the burbs. Really liked the open feel yet having the canopy protected us from the light rain. The "caboose" area was well done - would have liked the option to sit there (not offered even though empty & no one sat there). The wait staff were nice, a little slow at 1st but nice.
Small beer list but highlighted local NYC area brews so that was a plus. We ordered an app of shrimp cocktail & 2 entrees. Everything came at once. Oh well. The burger was ok. Very salty for some reason and the bun was something I would have bought at Super Stop & Shop. And it is not a cheap meal. Shrimp cocktail, 4 beers, a cheeseburger & a french dip sandwich came to $118. For that price you'd expect better.
There are many long tables for group/family seating. We've been to Oktoberfest in Munich and other establishments so we are used to that. What was strange was that they sat a solo diner in the chair right next to us, literally our legs could touch while there were other tables empty or almost empty. Why?
Overall if we were looking for cool spot just to grab a drink or a romantic hideaway I'd recommend. I hear they do a great brunch. Otherwise it was average.
Cool ambiance. Lived up to high expectation. Was first chilly night of the season so not really enough heaters around, but didn’t detract much. Food was high quality, Cuban sandwich nice and pizza very good! Key lime pie was yummy. Want to see Sleep No More but time did not permit! Nice evening!
Great atmosphere. Beautiful.
It's not come with allot of variety of food. Still best experience.
I love Gallow Green; have been many many times for drinks, music and brunch. All of which are excellent. Dinner however was shockingly mediocre. It’s really a snack and Pizza menu to begin with. But even that should be better. I think if you’re going to do dinner, do dinner right. Or just have a bar menu and leave it at that. But I think even the bar menu quality of food can be improved. I’m taking the time to write this review because I absolutely love your place. And will be back. But not for dinner.
Food was eh. When we tried to order another pizza (at 8:30) they told us that they shut down the oven for cleaning. Food came out all at once and before our drinks were served. Overpriced and not worth the money.
beautiful ambience. great cocktails
Gallow green is the perfect brunch spot in the city. The cocktails are delicious. The 5.30 pm food menu is not that great. There’s a better brunch menu. Overall it’s a pretty place.
They do not encourage walk ins. Try and book a table well in advance.
They have the best pizza (try zucchini) and the best french fries. Do get their special sleep no more drink.
