Iron Monkey has a really nice but small rooftop bar & restaurant. It's an old brownstone turned establishment. So beautiful, there's a bar downstairs then upstairs indoors seating + a rooftop. You walk past the kitchen on your way up.... Food is good worth 3-1/2 stars. Drinks are great and they serve my favorite ginger beer Crabbies:)!!! Only issues is... More

Came for dinner during a business trip. Rooftop had partial view of one world observatory and was small, simple yet relaxing. The beer choices plenty and fulfilling. Cocktails were limited yet full bar available. Meals were tasty. Arrive before the rush hour for premium seating, however 1st and 2nd floor also has indoor seating. The bartender was super friendly, wish... More

More pub than restaurant at 6:30 on a Monday night. Roof top was filled with people and very loud music. We went to the dining room and were the only people there until we left. Because of this, we had to request service three times before we could place our drink order. I don't remember the last time I ordered... More

Went there one weekday night, earlyish (6ish) and they were setting up for a band and for a crowd. We were barely attended to, the wait for the food was ridiculously long, and then the food was disappointing. Everything was fried in the same oil, everything tasted the same. Don't come here for the food...but perhaps it is a party... More

Came here for dinner and drinks a couple of nights. Both visits staff were very friendly and helpful. Willing to give you a few beer tasters before you decided. Food not the best, but still very good. Calamari and Meat loaf were favourites. The roof top terrace is a really nice place to eat outside and listen to music.

While the roof top area is a nice setting, the menu is nothing like the one they post on line, the service is beyond slow and the food arrives cold to the point of being barely edible. Looks like this would be a nice place for a drink (although $10 for a watery Bloody Mary is excessive), but believe me,... More

Had lunch and the service was horrible. The worst service I had in years. Food was okay, but the beer menu was great. I would go there just for drinks and a cool rooftop atmosphere.

Place looks like it hasn't seen a broom or mop EVER. Nice roof deck for drinks but thats it. Also $11 for hummus really not even in Manhattan.
