Iíd been meaning to stop in here since it opened, and I finally did today. As is to be expected, since it is part of Eataly, the place is a mad house. They used a texting system to tell you when they were ready for you, which keeps the crowds downstairs, and makes the upstairs more manageable. This is really a place that I like more in theory then in practice. What I mean by that is that it is a beautiful roof-top beer bar, with fans to keep it nice and cool and a retractable roof to make it work in all weather. It sounds great in theory, and the place is really nice looking, but itís also quite a pain. The service was OK, the prices were terrible (but I knew they would be, so I wasnít thrown for a loop or anything), and the food is quite good. We stuck to just a meat plate and a cheese plate, and enjoyed the selections along with a few beers. The food was quite good, but overpriced, and the beers were good, interesting, and again overpriced. Considering how crowded it gets and the prices, The beer selection is decent, some interesting drafts, and 3 of their own creations on cask. The bottle list also looked pretty solid, but again, overpriced. I donít see myself rushing back, but I did like it. I wish there was a beer bar with an atmosphere like this that didnít have the crazy wait/crowds, but I know thatís quite an ask considering the location. After all that rambling I just did, Iíd recommend visiting this one at least once. Itís worth a shot so you can decide for yourself whether you like it or not. For myself, Iíll probably revisit eventually, but Iíll try to do so on a weekday or something where the crowds will me as minimal as possible.

Stopped in here for lunch while visiting NYC. Really cool spot but I wish there was a view. Food was awesome but kind of pricey. Nice beer selection with lots of bottles. The bottles were very expensive. I had a bottle that was really over carbonated so we were comped a free beer. If given the opportunity, Iíll be back to this spot.

Popped in here with a bunch of RBians this last weekend while I was in town again. First the good - this place is beautiful. Really, truly, beautiful. Classy without being ostentatious or overwrought. Has a few beams running over the top providing a nice bit of shade to the rooftop patio. Large red ceiling fans get a workout on hot days (like the one we were there on). There was a small selection of their own beer - all of which were pretty standard and pretty boring. The food was great (as you might expect), but incredibly expensive. A large selection of cheeses and some tasty charcuterie with unlimited bread for eating it with. The chestnut honey they serve with the charcuterie is pretty damn tasty as well. Itís a great spot - but Iím not sure theyíre after the beer lover here with prices like these. There is a nice bottle list as well (mostly Italian stuff, unsurprisingly) although I canít see me paying these prices for it.

Iím somewhat torn on this place. The location is very cool, up on the 14th floor roof of the building that houses Eataly. After a quick elevator trip you arrive at a gorgeous open feeling space that feels classy but not pretentious. Very well lit on a mid autumn afternoon. Bar service was quick and friendly. They have a lovely looking menu of small plates and such. The downside however is that I really canít find much of a reason to come back. While the menu is great (and the plates I saw coming out looked wonderful), theyíre quite expensive for whatís on them. There are a few interesting beers on tap, and up to three (they only have three) of their own on cask. But the cask pours are $10 for a chalice (they do halves if you ask), so again rather pricey. And the tap list of 8-12 (canít remember exactly) is not mind blowing, especially in NYC. Seems very much aimed to the young disposable income crowd, who made up the bulk of a somewhat filled room while there in the afternoon. Probably worth swinging in if youíre passing by, but if youíre only in town for a day, certainly not a destination bar.

Cool location on top of Eataly, apparently others had my same thought. Space is tough if thereís a crowd, but worth the trip. Line up is limited but tasty. Not a regular but good for a change of pace, if youíre in the neighborhood or have reservations and out of towners.

Went here once with the gf. Nice rooftop bar and seating area great for nice weather. They have a bunch of italian beers in addition to their own micro brews - didnít try any of theirs so I canít really gauge the quality. Food was good, not great. Cool place though.

Visited on Sat. evening, we were lucky to get a table. As a beer geek that visited Italy several times, I was sure to see great Italian draft selection but was disappointed. Expensive place, some pints cost $10, bottles even more. Food is also expensive but very tasty. You can have a flight of the local brewed cask beers. I also found it very odd they have Moretti on draft - thatís not really craft.

Visited for lunch on January 30, 2012. Nicely located on the top floor of this building with a glass roop. Had the soup and tried the three own beers they had available. Good service. Was a bit hard to find, but once you got in the building and looked around you saw the sign and got directed towards teh elevators. Drawback thay you couldnít really get a sampler of beers.

Rooftop restaurant atop the massive Eataly market. We visited in late October and it was hotter than usual. They had about 20 space heaters going, with the roof closed mind you, so it was uncomfortably hot in there. Despite that fact, the food was much better than I expected it to be at such a touristy spot. My steak was cooked to perfection, and my wifeís fish was also excellent. There were two house made cask ales on when I visited (there are normally three, but one was fresh out). Both were good, but not great. Itís kind of pricey for what you get but hey, youíre on a rooftop in an expensive area of NYC, so what do you expect? It was a little overly touristy for me, so I donít know that I would go back, but it was definitely worth a visit.
