So excited to be eating at this historic location. However it was just ehhh. Nothing more then glorified bar food and it was just ok. Pizza taste was ehh. We had a reservation and we were running late, called and told them. When we showed up they said it was going to be another half hour and restaurant was empty. We asked to sit at bar and they said ok- thought they would be more attentive. They weren’t- we love sitting at a bar and clearly they may have been short staffed, however felt since we had a reservation there should have been some level
Of engagement.
Really wanted this to be better.

The space for the restaurant is great. We just finished a photoshoot for our company Grateful Dead Jewelry Designs on the Boardwalk and ended having Lunch at La Tombola. All in the crew and models loved the place and the food.

Love love love this place. Food was amazing and fresh and service was great. Literally worth every penny. Rooftop views and feel is amazing ! I’m so glad I live kinda close by to this gem! If you are doing a Coney Island day or live close by it’s def the spot to be this summer !

We went on a rainy Friday evening the atmosphere and vibe was awesome but then we sat down and waited for our waitress and waited for our drinks and waited and waited for our appetizer which were not tasteful at all and waited and waited for our meal which had no flavor and the pull pork was dry and waited some more for our pizza which they stated would cook in less than 5 minutes due to the high heat although the atmosphere was great we will not be returning

The menu was restrained due to a special graduation event so the crab pot was not available but the food was still delicious!

My husband and I really wanted to like this place. This was our second time and the second time we had a number of issues, biggest being wait time of an hour for the food and the quality of the food. The first time we went was the first week they were open, and they had issues with service as well and some of the food was unavailable since they "ran out". This time around, the service was even worse that we had to speak with a manager and the food was just OK. Beer battered fish was just so bad, I would never eat something like that. Calamari was good the second time around and chicken parm sandwich was mediocre. The place is beautiful, and we really wanted to like it. I think we will give it one more try when they open the rooftop and have calamari since we know they are good and a drink. I do not recommend the food based on our two experiences.

Worst service I ever experienced and I dine out at least 3-5 times a week and I’m pretty easy going. Very disappointed as we hoped to support this new restaurant. Food was ok, probably would have tasted better if we were not having such a horrible service experience. Ambiance has its charm with the beach view and other features but it’s too big for its own good and felt like a gigantic cafeteria ....we will never dine there again.

Place is nice and kind of unique for Coney Island. A little bit pricey but worth to go once or twice a year. Food was very good and the place itself is nice, high ceilings, big bar and overall very spacious.

Foods great, especially that pizza and Riceballs.!!! Food took almost 50 minutes to be served... I’d like to think the kitchen staff is new and they are still ironing out the beginning kinks of what can become a great Coney Island restaurant! Also very affordable!

This was our first visit the food varied in choices. We had some shared dishes as starters cheese platter, mozzarella sticks, rice balls, clams...we loved them all. Bar food at an amped up level. Our server Zoe was friendly, professional and helpful. She had great energy and was attentive. She was training two other staff members ...follow Zoe's lead she did a great job! Amazing atmosphere and a beautiful space. Every Brooklynite should make there way to this location. And anyone who wants to be transported into the Coney Island Brooklyn experience should make this a destination to visit. Will be back soon!

Cute place and nice location have a quiet drinks or for young kids to roam around, and if you want to be away from the boardwalk crowds. I think they are still working out some kinks with their services and food. Definitely has potential but hope when I go back next will be much improved. Like the retro vintage vibes!

Beautiful venue. Outrageous bar. Nice menu. Given that they just opened, the service was a bit slow, but we were in no rush and were enjoying the view of the parachute jump at night. It will become a regular spot for us.
