The view for this place is great. Staff is okay, food so so. You pay for the view. I have been there twice, one time i have a discount from living social. I realized they try to tax you extra and add the tip twice so they can make their money back. So I felt they were taking advantage both... More

I was borne and raised in NYC. Recently, I was sent to Long Island City for a business trip and thought I'd be consigned to McDonalds, Arbys, and really bad pizza. So I was delighted to discover that this area abounds with great restaurants. Right at the top (literally) is Penthouse808. Managed by the energetic and charming Benny Ramos, this... More

Let me start by saying that this restaurant is in a great location. The night time view is amazing. However, the customer service leaves a bit to be desired. We made 7:30 reservations and were not seated until 8:45. From 7:30 all the way up to when we were finally seated the reason we were given was that they were... More

First the positive. This place is gorgeous, located right next to the Queensborough bridge. The views are incredible! I was able to find street parking without much of a problem and the service was fine. I ordered a mahalo--a rum drink with coconut milk, pineapple juice, and vanilla chai, that was tasty. However, as a place that advertises their chef... More

CONS: - WEAK Drinks - Food is not plentiful. I don't suggest going on an empty stomach - Had the Lobster Bake. Aside from the 1 pound lobster, It came with 4 clams, 4 bite size baby potatoes, 1 corn nibblet. Bland. - I ordered the Samurai wings because I was hungry after the Lobster Bake. Tasteless. PROS: - Great... More

The view was spectacular; clear and panoramic! We were fortunate to be there as the sun set on a late summer evening and the sky was made to order. To their great credit the service was not rushed and we were able to enjoy the view for a long while. The service was warm and friendly; the server made some... More
