My Experience

Our experience at The Fun Roof was anticipated to be enjoyable, but unfortunately, it had numerous hiccups that left us frustrated. Upon arriving at 6:50 PM for our 7 PM reservation, the guard informed us that they would accommodate us on time and requested government IDs. Despite presenting a photo of a government ID, the guard insisted on a physical ID. Specifically, a passport. This caused confusion and frustration since he said he would accept photos of ANY government IDs. We paid for a reserved table for four so we expected a seamless experience. However, we had to wait for another 10 minutes as the staff cleared the table. Upon arriving, customers were still dining on our table. The indoor space was overcrowded causing 10 more minutes of waiting outside. Additionally, it took multiple attempts to get our order placed. We waited 2 hours for our food to arrive!

Despite efforts to catch the attention of a staff member, it seemed like we were deliberately ignored. Leading us to believe there might have been a lack of coordination among the staff. Our hunger and frustration reached peak levels as we waited almost an hour for our drinks and endured subsequent delays for our food. The last batch of pizza and chicken tenders arrived after much follow-up, leaving us with the impression that the service was unorganized and inefficient. Amid these challenges, it’s only fair to acknowledge the efforts of one staff member. He took our order, attended to our table, and proactively followed up on our food. However, the overall experience left much to be desired. The Fun Roof needs to improve its service quality, especially given the extra premium charge for the service. Overall, the food, games, and ambiance are top-notch but the service spoils everything.
