    Birthday dinner for my aunt who was visiting from Cali! She was very pleased with the restaurant selection and the food! The best snapper she had ever tasted in her life. Compliments to the chef.

    The decor needs updating. Ordered shrimp pasta and added blackened chicken. The shrimp pasta and sauce were good, but the chicken was nothing more than something from a grocers freezer, not blackened or thoroughly cooked. I gave it a three mostly because of my server. Probably would not return

    The ambiance was the best experience the whole night. The servers/hostess were nice and always checked on us to make sure we were ok. There was a mix up in the kitchen The appetizers took 1 hour to come out, the Kale salad was never served to us. I told the server to take the salad off the bill and not worry about the salad because the food had arrived. The entrees were presented beautifully. My wife had the whole fried red fish. She loved it. I had the ribeye. The first one we overcooked, more than likely it sat in the window waiting to be served while my wife’s dish was being prepared. The second ribeye was cooked correctly but all the flavor was in the sauce that was on top of the steak. I don’t like sauce or gravy on my steak. It shouldn’t need it. This ribeye was hiding behind the sauce. Then the bill comes. $32 automatic gratuity and they didn’t take off the salad. I paid the bill in full. $200 I don’t mind spending money I just like getting the absolute best service possible. Why make patrons pay for subpar service? I will go back and give them another chance because the ambiance is awesome but I’ll only go get appetizers and to lounge for a bit. If I have company in town and I want to take them somewhere The Roof isn’t on my list of go to places at the moment.

    Took twenty minutes to get a drink after asking twice for someone to check on it. Drink was all sugar and NO alcohol. Ordered calamari appetizer and it was so salty we couldn't eat eat it. especially since we didn't have drinks yet. When they brought calamari they also brought spinach artichoke dip which we did not order. My meal came but daughter's did not. after waiting another 10 minutes I asked and they said oh I thought she order the spinach artichoke dip - she order the spinach ravioli. I said when the server brought it back as we refused it no one came out to ask us about it why didn't they? no answer just apology. Daughter's meal came and sauce was so watery it was obvious that the ravioli were frozen and heated in sauce which made sauce watery. Then bill came and they added a 17% gratuity automatically!! So they know they are awful and don't want to leave it up to guest to decide on tip. Awful awful place.

    Everyone was super nice. Food was great! I only had one issue. We are Hispanics When we were being led to our table, I asked our hostess if we could seat at a booth by the window, she was very polite and said those tables were reserved for parties of 3 or more, there were only one 2 of us. Ok no problem. We ordered, had a wonderful meal. Waitress was amazing. Then as we were about to leave 2 ladies came in, they were of the same nationality as the hostess and asked the same thing I did when they were about to be seated at a table for 2. They were accommodated and they were able to sit by the window even though I was told the tables were reserved for groups of 3 or more.🤔 That did not leave us with a good feeling, especially because we loved the place so much! Everyone was super nice. Even when we were told we couldn’t have the booth we wanted she was very nice about it. But why are the rules not the same for everyone?

    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. The view is a complete vibe. It was a great experience will be returning soon!!

Service was friendly yet professional, vibe was energetic, and the dishes were truly the star of the show! .We were also celebrating our wedding anniversary and everyone we encountered congratulated us- a very nice touch ! We highly recommend the lobster pasta and stuffed wings..get them dirty. The best of everything! Absolutely amazing dinner here. Food cooked perfectly, beautiful patio, but what made this dinner truly entertaining was the service. Thank you for a great meal!

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. The Fried Red Snapper is my favorite.

    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!
