This upscale eatery serves New American fare in an art deco space on the 37th floor of a high rise.- Google
"Plus we had the lobster mac and cheese."
"Make sure to request a window seat, as you'll have the best view of the city."

I got the recommended "R2L Restaurant " with pear vodka and edible flower. The first sip blew me away cause it was a lot better than I expected! Don't want to R2L Restaurant , but highly highly suggest getting this. It was strong but I could not tell there was vodka; a little bit foamy and sweet, but not too sweet; very enjoyable to sip on. I ate the edible flower .... it just tasted like flower.

As amazing as my experience was, I'm not surprised to hear some of the so-so reviews about this place. I came in with only the expectations for good service, a nice view, and a strong cocktail, nothing more. Keep your expectations low, and you'll have a great time! SERVICE/EXPERIENCE Holla @ our server Alyssa who was fabulous and had her own charm as a server. The views are fabulous. To get window seats, you have to reserve welllll in advance, so obviously plan accordingly. Almost all couples, some larger groups celebrating something special. I'd take an out of town guest here to show them the view or impress my bae. Apparently they get 10 proposals a week, so.. heads up if you're planning on it... FOOD Asparagus salad (no duck) was tiny... like TINY. It's not really a salad, just some ever so slightly pieces of asparagus (like max 3 sticks). HOWEVER, it was delish. They had a creamy dressing on them that made them so tasty. My friend didn't like that it wasn't grilled and too fresh, but I thought it was unique and liked the taste. Got the vegetarian "lasagna" they have it in quotes because it's not a traditional lasagna structure. It's pieces of ravioli stuffed with ricotta and a layer of tossed sauteed veggies on top. Weird structure, but it was sooo goood. It had like picked tomatoes and flavors I couldn't recognize but appreciated so much! I'm big on spices, and this was bursting with all sorts of spices. Get the passion fruit dessert!!! Literally, with even the tiniest bite, I was transported to the caribbean.. like i had barbados in my mouth. COCKTAILS Strong, unique, what you'd expect from a place like this. But nothing that would make me want to come even for the $8 happy hour specials though. This place is bloody expensive. Is it worth the price? Honestly, probably not in my opinion. But if you have the discretionary income, the food is fabulous, the view is nice, and you can certainly have a great night.

I planned a nice birthday evening for my best friend. The scene itself was beautiful, from the actual decor to the scenic view: absolutely gorgeous. The food: terrible. Firstly, for the price we paid for the food, it was literally less than subpar. The lobster mac n cheese was extremely runny. The chicken dish was...well it didn't taste like chicken. The steak salad was basically bits and pieces of romaine and what looked like bacon, not even steak! The gnocchi was super herby. Usually, I'm not incredibly picky about food, but this was insane, especially for an upscale restaurant. I will not be coming here again for food. The bar and lounge area was great and had a way better menu. They had these snack burgers that were delicious! It's unfortunate that after you leave the lounge area, you can't order from that menu. But, other than that, we had a great server, very polite, attentive and emphatic to our dissatisfaction with the food. They actually took the chicken of the bill which was nice! But I have to give 2 stars because the food really wasn't good at all.

I have eaten here several times during the four years I have lived in Philly, and have had happy hours or cocktail events here as well, as an employee of a company in the building; and I have had wonderful experiences. This is thanks completely to the **servers, bartenders, and kitchen staff**. On Valentine's Day, however, we had a very different experience. I am confident that the servers and kitchen staff were amazing as always, but we never found out. We made our reservation about a month and a half early, to ensure a window seat. OpenTable asked for a credit card when booking--no problem; we provided it. Upon arrival, we were told that, since we did not place a deposit, there was not a table for us. Yes, they could see our reservation in the system, they said; they can see the date on which we placed the reservation, a month and a half prior. However, they claim to have called us (one time) to get a deposit from us, and since they were unsuccessful, they didn't hold us a table (again, they can see our reservation, they knew we were coming). ***No one had ever called to obtain a deposit from us.*** Further, had they needed a deposit, that should have been worked out between OpenTable and R2L--not our problem. OpenTable asked for a credit card and we provided one. Plus, how incredibly rude is it to require a deposit for a table reservation anyway? As a semi-regular at this place I find that greatly offensive. We weren't speaking with hourly-waged youngsters either; we started with a manager and were escalated to "one of the owners". Neither woman made an attempt to be friendly, let alone apologetic or accommodating in any way. This lady who was "one of the owners" should definitely keep herself exclusively in the back of the house, away from any sort of paying customer. I have never, as a customer, been treated so poorly or talked to so terribly. And, no, I can assure you, we were not out of line or yelling or making a scene or rude for our part; we just aren't the type. She was plain awful. Never so much as a shred of an inkling of a hint of an apology or any effort whatsoever. So, despite all of the rave verbal reviews I have given everyone I know about this place in the past, I will now make sure that everyone we know, meet, work with, or do business with--several of whom work in that building--does not ever drink or dine at R2L. And, clearly, we will never step foot into the place again either.

very very cool place for a date night. awesome view. I did have to ask specifically for a window seat which wasn't a problem and we did get one so make sure to ask! food was absolutely delicious. good vibe not too loud very laid back atmosphere. it's pricey but understandable due to where you're eating. manager came over and asked how everything was she had a very inviting personality. very cool place definitely try it out if you've never been.
