Swanky Chelsea Hotel – Stayed at the Gansevoort a number of times as well as frequented the rooftop bar for various events. The scene is swanky and fun. Great drinks and summertime at the pool can't be beat. The rooms are a bit small, but then again it is new york. Location is fantastic, right across the street from Pastis and a block away from excellent nyc shopping (earnest sewn and others).
Cool place – Really pricey but worth it if you're looking to wine dine and stay at a 4 star hotel. There is a great bar on the rooftop and great service and amenities. I highly recommend this for a special anniversery or if you are among the few that can travel to NYC and afford to stay at a 4 star hotel.
H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E – I just wanted you to know what an awful experience we had on Saturday night. We arrived at 9:20 for our 9:30 reservation. We were told to go to the bar and have a drink while our table was being set. After 3 (!) different trips to the reservations desk to ask what was happening, we were told that it would be "just a moment." At 10:45 PM we still we waiting at the bar. We had a $300 bar tab and by that point we were starving and our night was headed downhill. Had we known we would not be seated for an hour and 15 min we would not have chosen to spend the night at the bar.
After being told at 10:45 that our table would be ready any second, we decided that we had had enough. We ended up at Pop Burger eating burgers in fries. Although it was very good, it was not what I had originally planned and was extremely disappointed.
I won't plan on coming to Ono again, ever. I am sure this is completely fine with them as when we were leaving not one person said anything to encourage us to stay.
Meatpacking district could-be – We did wait a while in the line, but eventually, we get through the door and are escorted to an elevator, going up to PH. We step off the elevator to a very posh, very crowded club. There are a lot of reserved areas, so we go towards the bar and order a drink. Drinks were expensive there- I paid $14 for a Vodka tonic. There was a rooftop patio we wanted to check out. It was cold and damp up there, but the view was awesome. The sky had cleared a little and we could see a ways up the Hudson. I wasn?t super impressed with this venue, HOWEVER if it was warmer and not Friday night it may have made a huge difference.
Avoid the bouncers! – The rooftop bar is a pretty cool place to hang out and get a bar, especially during a weeknight. As with every swanky lounge, you can expect to pay a premium for drinks; however, the views can be worth it. The crowd is mixed with all sorts in attendance, but it is part of what can make it fun. Unfortunately, in some nights, you have to deal with two bouncers who shoot way more steroids than they should and may ask you for "a bill" so they can open the pearly gates for you; their common excuses for not letting you will in the form of your dresswear (jeans, sneakers). I would have rated this place higher if it wasnt because those bouncers are really that annoying.
Do I smell Armani Acqua Di Gio? – If Bruno from the Ali G show was a real person this is where he'd stay in NYC. Not trying to be overtly critical, just saying...
Delicious drinks, gorgeous atmosphere!! – just went for a friend's birthday-we had a little private area in the garden, and it was so wonderful!! they could maybe use a few more fans but the service was incredible, the bartenders were friendly, and it's just a beautiful place to sit and have some drinks/hors d'oeuvres. a welcome respite from all those pretentious, snobby places in the meatpacking district. i will definitely go back!
Bad waitresses – My comments this place has a lovely decor but the waitress do not match the name. If your going to pay for a drink a smile and respect would be recommend. What happened my encounter with a skinny brunette was not a good one. She acted like she was doing my friends and I favor when ordering. She placed the drinks at a far corner and didnt bother serving. I recommend that all your waitress slick some vaseline maybe customers can get a smile even a fake one. All the waitress look like all the air has been sucked out of them so lifeless no personality and overly malnutritioned. Please change them as I read your reviews many people feel the same. Rude, unattractive I use to go many years ago alot more prettier staff friendlier. What happened. Kristy stop talking about your cats were not interested and youve slept with customers you know for a little sight of the Titanium. The other brunette you need food and sleep.
What a great place!!!! – My daughter is a huge sushi fan, so after some recommendations, we made a reservation at Ono.
The entire experience was fantastic. The decor is trendy and exciting. The menu is interesting and innovative. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, my daughter had a great time.
You absolutely must try the topped nigiri, it will change your life!!!!!!!!
We plan on coming back many times, and we recommend that you do the same!
one of the best summer weekends i had – I heard a lot about this place and decided to take my girlfriend here for our anniversary. We got a great table outside. The space was nicely designed and felt like an urban oasis. The place was busy and the service was on point. The sushi and lobster were amazing. We even got a surprise dessert plate with happy anniversary written on it. After dinner we were escorted to the rooftop by one of the managers and got to skip the line outside. The roof has a really nice view of the city. The music was great and we had a lot of fun. We'll definitely be back for our next anniversary.
LOVE IT!!!! Great night out... – Myself and a few friends went by this saturday and had an amazing time. First off the place is gorgeous, has a great vive, beautiful people and the food was really tasty. We had a bunch of stuff, some of my favorites were the sushi platter, tuna tartare, the crab pizza and the rib eye dish. We got to sit outside in the bamboo garden, it felt like we were on vacation somewhere outside of the City... made me forget I was only a couple blocks from my house. I think they had a DJ cause the music was really good. Great service as well. I definitely recommend it.
