    What a fun, new spot for outdoor rooftop dining! We loved the ambiance and decor. It feels like you are on vacation! Food was good but fish and chips were not the best. Corn crusted oysters were amazing! We will be back!

    Gross. I guess they don’t have enough business to do more than one seating a night, because they don’t buss tables after parties leave. So you get to stare at a destroyed table across from yours, with food scape and crumpled up napkins. Drinks were terrible- red wine served warm. Server told us best food on the menus was “a 7 out of 10.” More like a 3. Host just stared blankly when we walked in - at many restaurants, hosts actually greet you.

    The fries w chowda and bacon were great, the rest not so much: - clam chowder was very salty and sparse on the potatoes and clam - pork belly tacos “for 2-4” were fair, but a meal for 1. - was hot in there… half way through you could tell someone finally turned the AC on. - service was inattentive. Three times a dish was delivered to our table we had to wave off that it wasn’t ours. - signage next to UniClo leads to an empty stairwell. Once you exit the stairwell you’re clearly in the hotel’s food service area, but you have to wander around to find the actual seating area. - I found the wire seats uncomfortable in that they made me lean back at an angle that then made the top of the chair back cut into my spine. - dang it’s loud in there, music and conversation both.

    I really wanted to like this place, the atmosphere is great. We didn't have any real issues with servers like others have reported, ours was very nice and everyone is trying hard these days with little staff. We had to wait a bit on one of our food items but it was comped without us asking. However the disappointing part was the food. The best item was the clam chowder fries, which were like poutine. The rest of the food was lackluster at best. We ordered the queso fundido and the octopus tin. Queso fundido was just ok. Octopus is just in oil with crackers and hot sauce. The mambo chicken sandwich was a mess and the flavors were just way off. The rockfish platter again was just ok, not well seasoned and with mediocre side dishes. I think they should consider revamping their menu before word gets out that it's not good. It would be a shame for a cool place like this to go under if they can't catch their stride. I think it would be best for drinks/appetizers especially if they add some more variety. Seafood is supposed to be a highlight here but they are missing the mark. Perhaps they need more time to work out the kinks, but I really hope upper management is paying attention to the reviews coming out.

    Food was good and the service was good. Really liked our waiter. Loved sitting outside at pike and rose as well. Had crabs and they were expensive but normal these days. And the drinks were excellent! Would try this again.

    Great time w/ family & families unfortunately the service was abysmal. I had to go to the Host to ask her if she could find the person responsible for our table and send him/her over because we waited a solid 15-20 minutes and no one came to the table not even to say hello. When the Waiter finally came to the table he offered no suggestions and getting questions answered seemed like an annoyance for him. He seemed to forget that we were even there. We had to ask multiple times for simple things such as water and napkins. I took my Boyfriend for his birthday and was so embarrassed that this part of the experience was so awful. My Sister and her friends arrived AFTER me and my Boyfriend. They were at another table across the room. I witnessed their Waitress come over immediately. My Sister and her friends received food and drinks BEFORE we did and they came after we did?!?!? I was outraged! Fortunately the show was good and 3 out of 4 of the performers were super nice and wished my Boyfriend a happy birthday. Overall my Boyfriend enjoyed the experience which is great and the goal. More work is definitely needed in securing adequate Waitstaff and Servers. The poor service definitely dampened the mood for me and I was definitely disappointed. The Waiter didn't even seek us out to bring the bill...we had to ask another Waitstaff for the bill! Ugh!!!! I hope the feedback is helpful. I don't know the Waiter's name but he is in desperate need of retraining. This is a great idea but continued poor service will ruin it for your business.

    first time dining and went for the drag brunch event. Service was terrible, they were out of condiments, no iced tea & waitress didn't have other suggestions of what else to drink, water jug looked dirty, so no available water provided on a hot day. No refills provided or offered by waitress. Asked for ketchup when meal came and by time we finished, waitress asked if we got it, NOPE! No menu to read, luckily we looed prior to going and what NO desserts, really? Limited brunch items & not many appealing choices, so we all opted for cheeseburgers. Lucily THEY were remarkably excellent and seasoned nicely, fries were also served hot and flavorful. Enjoyed the outdoor patio space immensely, but need to fix the dripping pergola over our table. We moved the table and chairs so it wouldn't drip into food, water or the 4th chair. When we were seated the host saw the 4th chair was full of water, but never came back to dry it or offer to move us to get away from the drip. Luckily our 4th person couldn't make it. Probably won't be our first choice to return there, shame because the outdoor space is really nice! If you want just an alcoholic drink, this might be good spot to lounge.

    Attended Drag brunch which was super fun and loud. Some dishes were better than others. Feedback from guests they liked chicken sandwich, crab roll/sandwich had too much sauce and the scramble egg and pork was ok. Atmosphere and show made it a great experience. Shout out to the Hello Betty team for giving my teen a birthday card before we left. That was sweet and unexpected.. thank you!

    Service was very nice. This is the third meal i've had there as I've been staying at the hotel over the past few weeks. The food continues to be a bit underwhelming. Preparation isn't exactly precise and the flavors could be better. The biggest challenge I have is with the cocktail program. It could really use improvement. The bartenders seem to all have worked at volume bars where they pour beers or fruity cocktails for young people. They don't seem to know how to make a proper cocktail. It's disappointing. The place has so much potential but seems aimed at youngsters who don't care about food and drink quality. Unfortunately, that's not me so I likely won't keep going back.

    Pros: Really pretty restaurant inside and out. Would be a great place for apps/drinks and groups if not for the cons. I'm giving 2 stars and vs. 1 solely because of the look and feel of the space. I hope they improve the cons. Food, when it finally came, was fine/good, but not special, which is okay because it's a pretty basic menu. Cons: Service is non-existent. Had an earlyish (6:30) reservation. There were not many customers (maybe 1/4 full outside, fewer inside). Everything took FOREVER, even getting water and napkins was challenging. The whole experience took over 2 hours and we were just 5 adults. Our waiter was nice enough but most MIA. He was either inexperienced and poorly trained or overwhelmed (which is odd because again, it was not crowded at all). One young/inexperienced expediter seemed to be trying his best, but this place needs way better employee management. Appetizer came out cold and no way to eat it because no utensils were provided. We went there for the crabs and they ran out but did not mention it until we were ordering, so we had to scramble to make changes and it was a bad time to introduce another disappointment since we'd been sitting there hungry and thirsty for 30+ minutes at that point. When the mains finally came out, it was in spurts so basically we ate in overlapping turns.

    Second time at this spot. The food is great. Loved the mushroom tostadas and burgers. Fun menu. Great atmosphere. Unfortunately, the service on the second visit was horrible. (The first was so-so, but the delicious food made it worth it) This time — So very slow. Forgot to bring appetizer. Drinks arrived for half the party but took another 10+ minutes for the rest of the drinks. Then food showed up for half the party before before the other even ordered. (We were told in order to get the special that included drinks, we had to place the order first to get the drinks out firs). But instead of getting the drinks first, the waitress brought the entire meal. Because it was hot food, we had to eat before everyone else. We were told there were 12 crabs per order. Turns out there were only 7. (Waitress was very nice and apologetic for her mistake.) Rest of food came. When everyone was almost done, the appetizer arrived. :/ We ordered extra steamed corn. It never came. Waitress said kitchen was too busy. Sat for a long time waiting for bill. Finally I went the the waitress station to get it taken care of. Our waitress was very apologetic and sweet (and we tipped her well), but this was a special occasion splurge for our family and we all left disappointed. I was embarrassed because I was with the in-laws and I picked the restaurant.

    Food was just okay and overpriced. One guest in our party waited over an hour for his food. My rice tasted like eating a spoonful of salt and they brought two more that tasted the same. The third bowl was finally edible since they decided to omit salt completely. Crabcake, cod tacos, rockfish, and savage fries were pretty good though. The manager did end up giving us a 25% discount. Still would not go back though.

    This was a huge disappointment. The service was terrible. We waited 20 minutes after the hostess sat us and asked to seat us somewhere we could get service. No one came in that time to greet us, bring us water, much less take a drink or food order. The food was ok to mediocre and they got the order wrong. It took an absurd amount of time for the food to arrive on top of that. The decor seems half thought out and overall the concept is a dud. The cocktails were about the only high point. The O.B.O.F. was better than it sounds on the menu. Will not return though.

    We were just two people out for a date night, restaurant was half full on Friday night, but lively. We waited 30 min for our drinks to arrive! Our server was so slow and weird in her speech she seemed absolutely high. Our entrees arrived 75 min after we were sat (a 2-top!). Abysmal service. Manager wasn’t much better. When going to Pike and Rose, I suggest you SKIP this place.

    We were seated outside but we didn’t really have anyone to serve us. Waited a while for a drink order, and then asked to be moved inside just so we could get better service. The food was good, and the vibe was great (though a little loud).

    We came for their first Drag Brunch to support MoCo Pride. The event was AMAZING and the food was OUTSTANDING! But, the service was absolutely terrible. It took us 40 minutes to get our first round of drinks, another 45 to get our meals (and two of them were wrong because the server put them in wrong, not because of the kitchen.). She brought out 3 complimentary drinks to our table of 8 to apologize for the wait. Really? We asked for our check and waited another 45 minutes for that. We complained twice to the host, but still couldn’t get any attention. The other servers were trying to assist, but ours was just an absolute nightmare. I doubt I’ll go back, which is a shame because I think it’s a great place. But what a miserable experience.
