    This place is incredible. The vibe from the moment you walk in is everything. From the food to the service. I made reservations for our anniversary. We had the land and sea which was delicious. Lamb and lobster combo. Highly recommend the old fashions. Staff made everything a great experience. After that we decided to go to the patio which was a lot of fun. It was a great experience will be returning and I highly recommend it.

    Everything was amazing! My husband and I came here for our birthdays and The Roof really lived up to our expectations. Service was excellent, food was to die for and the portion sizes were pretty good. The atmosphere is everything. This is definitely a great date night find. Would love to come back some day in the near future to try the Fried Red Snapper.

    Waited 3 minutes before someone acknowledged us. The hostess was HORRIBLE!!! She had a bad attitude, not friendly, forgot to seat us, and seated 2 couples before us. We had to remind her we were still there and needed to be seated. She seated us with our menus and walked off. I’m in the customer service business and this was the worst service. If it wasn’t for our waitress and the food I would never go back.

    When my friend got there, she said that the waitress had an attitude. I arrived and we waited for 3 mins. She went to seat us, only to stop and talk to the bartender first. Why? Waited a few seconds and on to our small rectangular table that was positioned in the middle of a boring ambiance of a restaurant. We asked to get seated outside and she acted as if she didn’t even want to walk that far by saying you sure. It’s a lil crowed out there.straight attitude and wanted to walk out but it’s black owned. Had to give it a shot. We proceeded outside and the people outside already sitting looked upset and over it. The outside beautiful, the space needed help. She sat us and then left us with a candle holder stuffed with old cigarettes ashes. Ugh😒. We waited about 10 mins to get served by a new waitress who told us was her first day and got thrown into waiting tables. We order drinks and appetizers. Drinks took 15 mins to come out and was just ok. Appetizers came out in 25 and was just meh! I asked for the check which included a 20% gratuity. I left my card, they called and left a message saying that it would be locked up in a lock box. That box doesn’t exist. One of the waiters had it in her car!!! Why?? Never going back. Such a nice space to have such ulgy attitudes and dishonest messages.

    Not a great experience with this black-owned business. When we arrived, we were greeted and asked if we had a reservation. We did not. They had us sit down in the waiting area until we could be seated. After about 5-7 minutes, I asked the older hostess, do we need a reservation? She stated it would be better if we had one because they were busy back there. There was an abundance of empty tables. I said ok, went on their website and made a reservation. To my own fault, I didn’t read online that they prefer recommendations due to COVID. No problem, I made the reservation and they sat us immediately. The younger hostess with long blonde braids and glasses at the door acted like she really didn’t want to be there nor help us. The older hostess was so sweet and nice. The environment was extremely elegant. Table cloths & table settings were beautiful. The environment was dimly lit & intimate. They have a mixture of seating from tables with chairs to tables with loveseats and more. There is live jazz playing on stage while you eat. Mozzarella sticks were ok but the marinara to dip it in was nasty and salty. They only give you 5 thin mozzarella sticks. The spinach & artichoke dip was delicious. I ordered the salmon ponchatrain & a hard strawberry lemonade and asked what was the cook on the salmon. I asked the server, “is it medium rare or medium well or..” She said, “I don’t know. It’s grilled.” I asked her if I could get the salmon medium and she stated yes, is that all?” We still had one more person that was sitting at the table that needed to order. We placed our order and enjoyed the jazz music. The food & drinks came out. Food was decent. Salmon was over cooked but the ponchatrain sauce it came with helped a lot. Overall my experience wasn’t the best which is disappointing because this establishment has the potential to be really amazing. As much as people pay to come to this establishment, the customers should be treated a little better.

    Took my bff there on Thursday for her bday, lady at the front desk, rude, the food marginal for the price. There were about 6 people there at 6:30 , my friend asked for a glass of wine, they ran out after the first glass! For her first time at that establishment, it wasn’t a good look at all. The front host STRESSED the 2 hr table limit, but there was no one there. Not to mention you can’t sit wherever you want, sitting that close to people was uncomfortable. Our backs were to the musician, because of the table arrangement, couldn’t see him, had to keep turning around in the chair. They automatically take 20% gratuity off the top! I didn’t like that at all, not that I wouldn’t of tipped, I just need to have at least a say so in the matter. The musician was great! He’s the only reason we stayed an hour.. I won’t recommend this place, not if you want quality. The hostess absolutely needs to be your face of the business, with a great attitude, attention to detail, accommodating and most of all friendly and smiles. None of that happened Thursday… now I have to do a do over for my bff. Waste of money and time….

    The ambiance and staff were great. We came for a Sunday brunch. The mimosa and Bellini were basically OJ and Peach purée and were served a very small amount for $9.00. There was limited staff so wait times were elevated for all items. The wait for our meals once we ordered was longer than expected. Maybe if there was a bread basket or something offered during the wait it would have distracted from the length of time. We both had the 20-26$ pasta. The ravioli was ok- very bland. The blackened chicken pasta was not blackened at all- it was the precooked chicken from HEB we eat at home often. The garlic sauce was garlic water. It didn’t even stick to the pasta. It ran off like soup. Both of us had stomach issues for 4-6 hours after we left the restaurant. The kicker on all of this was the mandatory 20% tip added to each of our checks for two people. We would come back to try for drinks and the patio on a nice fall night but can’t recommend otherwise.

    Thank God for free parking!!! Ambiance: They have such a nice outdoor area, but the lighting is broken as are some of the tables, but if that's fixed it would be such a nice space. Otherwise, the space inside is nice for an intimate dinner when not packed. Service: Okay. My server came to me and was laughing (she had her air-pod in, so I assume she was on the phone). She forgot our drinks, and we got our appetizer before our drinks. We asked for straws to at least have water and we never got them. She seemed nice but she was not attentive. But I appreciate them taking the food that I didn't eat off of the bill without me having to ask. Food/Drinks: The snapper was good, and so was the calamari but the dipping sauce for the calamari was extremely salty. The chicken was bland but the skin was crispy. The mac n' cheese was soup-like underneath the top cheese layer. The collard greens were dry. The drinks were pretty good in comparison to the food. All in all, it wasn't my best experience, they explained the different specials they have during the week, but I honestly wouldn't go back. I am disappointed because the reviews seemed very promising.

    Excellent dining in the heart of Sugar Land neighborhood. Ambience sexy and bold. Very fresh and unique menu for cajun and seafood. The lobster appetizer is very good! They have an extensive cocktail menu and drink selections. Live music was outstanding. Restaurant staff and mangers ensure guests are well attended and satisfied. They surprised us with an anniversary desert.

    I don't even have words to describe how amazing my experience was at The Roof. My server made sure I was well taken care of and the food was INCREDIBLE. I don't regret one single bite of what I ordered (Which was possibly everything on the menu) and I had the lots of leftovers. Treat yourself. You won't regret it. Worth the calories and worth every dollar spent. Make sure to take plenty of pictures. My favorite spot!

Everything from the gorgeous decor, attentive waitstaff to the delicious food was impeccable. I highly recommend this place … it is such a treat every single time. The energy is everything. Whether you’re coming for brunch or dinner you’ll be completely satisfied. Brunch has endless mimosa and dinner is amazing no matter what you choose. Top notch cocktails and amazing food. Service is always fantastic.

    They turned on music after we were seated. It was so loud we could not talk to each other at the table. It started after we ordered drinks but before we ordered food. We asked if the music was going to stay so loud or if it could be turned down. We offered to leave if we were the only ones with that opinion. They turned the music down - then cranked it back up before we left. The food was sub par and expensive. We had a table of 2 and were given checks with automatic gratuity charged. The staff were pleasant but disorganized. There was a roof leak right next to our table.

    1st it was our 25th Anniversary & asked the hostess if we could have the booth with the window. We were told no because the had reservations for a 4 top. During our meal they sat a 2 top @ the booth I asked for, did not make me happy. 2nd it was early & it was us & 2 other tables. Even though our waitress was very nice and attentive the service was not what you would expect for the price. The water/ tea took forever to be refiled and even though the food was good it took some time to come out. Especially when there where only 2 other tables. Also, we were a 2 top & a 20% gratuity was added. There was no note on the menu or anywhere in the restaurant stating gratuity would be added to all bills. 3rd The atmosphere was very nice and we did enjoy the view. Took some very nice pictures. So in closing come for the view but don’t stay for the service.

    Best Experience Ever! Food, Ambiance, & a great staff. Loved the way we were welcomed and taken to our table, the staff provided awesome recommendations for what to order. I couldn’t ask for a better experience. We booked around 7pm so we were there to see the sun go down which was such a beautiful experience on the patio. The food was incredible. Had lobster, snapper, lamb and boudin. Everything we put in our mouth was delicious! The service was phenomenal! Our server helped make the experience even better. The entire staff was on point and work well as a team. The drinks were also da bomb!! And of course the atmosphere is stunning. Overall A+++!! Will definitely be back.

    This place is incredible. From the food to the service. I made reservations for our anniversary they greeted us and took us to our table preset with flowers and champagne. (I called ahead and made these arrangements.) There they set us and congratulating us on our anniversary. We had the surf and turf which was delicious. Had some drinks highly recommend the old fashions. After that we decided to go to the bar which was a lot of fun. It was a great experience will be returning and I highly recommend it. Highly recommended for a special occasion and/or great company.

    Had a phenomenal meal here. Every dish we tried was fantastic and the service was stellar. Got lucky and a reservation opened up, but definitely recommend making one in advance. Every dish is thoughtfully layered in flavors and presented beautifully. Lamb and snapper was my favorite. Service was also great. Will absolutely be back next time we're in town.

    The food was good but service was bad. First the hostess sat us in middle of restaurant and when ask of we can sit by the window, she said no because a bigger party was coming but we sat there for a couple of yours and no one never say a ant of those tables. They were empty the whole time. Our waiter came brought us some water, took my husband menu so we ended up having to share our 1 menu and he never came back, we didn't see him again until it was time to pay. We had to keep flagging down other waiters to get any service even just to order our food. What makes me really mad is its automatic gratuity even though he literally did nothing but gave us water one time but still got a tip.
