    We were really looking forward to our reservation at Charmaines. And they did not disappoint. From the Service walking into the restaurant to being seating outside with the warm fire pit, blanket and view. Enjoyed the little appetizer bites and tasty drinks. I would recommend this to everyone I know.

    Beautiful views, great energy. Items are pretty overpriced, but tasted wonderful! Our waitress was great, but I did not feel like the service was very personal. We had to wave someone down if we needed something. Also not located in the greatest spot, had to walk through some very sketchy areas of SF for decent parking that wasn’t the provided valet service (which as of today is $8 every 20minutes).

    Charmaine's Rooftop LoungeResponded todayHello Kate, thank you for your feedback, we can absolutely use this to improve. We're so glad you enjoyed the views and the energy of the space and hope we can provide the service we strive for the next time you visit us. Thank you and have a great week!

    Feels like an LA rooftop dining experience. Exceptional service (My favorite part of visit). The staff are so friendly and warm if you engage them but professional and precise if you just want great service. The food comes out so fast you won't believe it and it is all delicious. The street scene outside when you get there is a bit funky and valet parking is expensive but for a date or a fun night out with friends, highly recommend. Bring warm jacket as it can be foggy/breezy into the evening. Lots of fire pits. The music curated there is amazing - Wish we could get the play list!

    Charmaine's Rooftop LoungeResponded todayThank you so much for the kind words, we are so glad to hear your experience was exceptional! We look forward to seeing you again very soon.

    The drinks were very good. The food was very tasty and I recommend the burger with avocado! A wee bit pricey. We were outside and it was beautiful. The only downfall was that our fire pit wasn’t working so it was a little chilly.

    Beautiful rooftop lounge, amazing top notch service with pretty interesting food choices. Drink choices were delicious. I do warn anyone headed there #1 BE CAREFUL the area around the hotel & rooftop lounge isn’t good at all with a lot of sketchiness, BUT once you go through security you’re SAFE! We hired a car for the night, walking to the hotel/lounge was NOT an option. #2 Bring a jacket, even with the beautiful fireplace setup it’s still a bit chilly. Totally worth it!

    Charmaine's Rooftop LoungeResponded on July 26, 2022Thank you so much for your review, Dollface, we are so glad your experience was a positive one and we can't wait to see you back in Charmaine's again soon!

    Worth going to for the views, firepit, and atmosphere. However, the hostess treated me coldly, and like some kind of trespasser, when I just exited the elevator and went to find my friend's table, who had already been seated at his table. Tip to the restaurant: treat your guests like they are welcome and belong there, don't treat them like they just jumped a fence into your backyard.

    Great ambience, super friendly service, food was mediocre at best. We had the marinated olives and crudite with dips for starters, then the burger and fish tacos, and the blueberry/peach dessert. Nothing special, nothing hit home. They don't have many food options but the drink menu goes on and on. Maybe just go for the ambience and a drink.

    Coworkers had a lovely evening out. Staff was lovely and welcoming. We ordered cheese platter, pretzels, almonds, olives and tacos. The team thought cheese platter was good but it was small quantity compared to price. Pretzels yummy. Almonds are delicious. Outdoor seating was lovely, wonderful day. Prices are very high, venue is SUPER loud (hard to talk), and rooftop super windy. A great experience but will likely not go again.

    First time in SF and I've heard this spot was thee trendy place to check out! It's a cute rooftop bar/restaurant at the Proper Hotel and I'm glad I checked it out. You can either sit outside beside a fire pit/place and eat and/or drink or sit inside. I believe there's also a bar or open area for walk-in's indoors. We had a reservation. Special shout out to ANDRÉS; he was extremely kind, friendly, patient and coordinated the best seat in the house for my sister and me. We ate the chopped salad, which was OK/decent, and we also had the cheese burger, which I recommend. The service all around was impeccable and unforgettable.

    Charmaine's Rooftop LoungeResponded on July 10, 2022Hi Carolyn!! Happy to hear that you spent time with us on your first time in San Francisco.

    This was a really cool spot in the city to bring work colleagues from out of town. The inside was also very nice. The only part that required adjusting to was eating out on the patio with no full tables. However, I was able to get a reservation for 8 people with very short notice and so there were limited seating options for our group. Cocktails and food were good.

    From out of town made a reservation to surprise my husband . After paying for an Uber 15 min from our hotel to arrive at the restaurant we were informed that the restaurant was closed due to an incident . No curtesy call or message to make us aware that our reservation had been cancelled and we should look for other dinner options . Instead they waited until we arrived and spoke to three people to get notified that nothing can be done and we had to go through a deposit refund. Very unprofessional and non understanding that we had to stand and wait on a non so safe location for another Uber to take us back to our hotel and look for dinner reservations. I will not be returning. Not worth the hassle nor the hype when you can get better customer service elsewhere.
