    There were only two other tables there, but they didn't really serve us. Food order was wrong, cold and chicken was questionable. Views were beautiful, but food and service could be much better.

    My wife and I Had dinner at HOWM restaurant Located at Selina in Chelsea New York. I must say the ambulance was Spectacular! The garden is beautifully decorated with wonderful murals , the furniture is modern an extremely comfortable and complemented by beautiful weather. Melina G was our server. She was attentive, courteous, professional and gave us wonderful recommendations. Paul was also amazing and extremely pleasant. The presentation of the signature guacamole was phenomenal and complemented by great taste. The mini Churrasco was perfectly cooked, tender, moist, and extremely tasty. However the star of the night was the chicken à la Brasa- guava glazed with delicious contif tomatoes and Rosemary. By far the best chicken I’ve ever had in my life. I will come back, many compliments to the chef

    The decor in this place is nice but that's it. The menu is very limited for both drinks and food and this is why the review isn't great. The hotel is holding up this restaurant because it was EMPTY on a Saturday, including the rooftop.

    We absolutely loved our experience, it was me and 3 guests and our two dogs. The staff was very on top of things and everything was good from the specialty drinks and food, my pup wasn’t a fan of the food but he is a very picky guy, his brother though devoured it and wanted thirds, they both loved the desert for the dogs they definitely wanted seconds. Highly recommend if you would love to take your dogs out somewhere with other dogs being there too and definitely recommend bringing a water bowl and fan with your pup to make sure they stay cool! I would definitely come here again. It is in a area away from the sun

    HOWM Cocina & CocktailsResponded on July 27, 2022Hi there! So glad to hear you and your pups had a great time. It would be our pleasure to serve you again in the near future.

    We joined for the puppy brunch on Sundays - we paid the full price and did not get either the human or puppy desserts that we were supposed to get with the package. None of the “dog experiences” they tout on the site were there. They charge same rate whether you have a dog or not. Our waitress was hardly to be seen and when she was she would just complain about being busy and then not come back / forget our orders (the place wasn’t even near half full). The whole experience was overpriced (given we didn’t get it all) and underwhelming. Don’t bother!

    We went for the puppy experience, and it was pretty terrible. We had to ask the waiter several times for the puppy food, and he forgot multiple times. The fries were excellent, but everything else was pretty bad. The French toast was soggy, and the churros were rock hard. The burger was just okay. Overall this was NOT worth $40/person.

    I enjoyed Puppy Brunch at Howm since the environment was nice, the staff was friendly, and the food was good. I, however, was disappointed when I learned that I was charged slightly more than I was supposed to be.

    Was on the rooftop. View and vibe are great! Food was so so. Arepa sandwiches were great! Service needs a huge step up. There was a private event and so the bartenders (3) were not able to keep up the pace and there seemed to be only one under trained and inattentive waitress providing table service who didn’t have drink menus. When asked what drinks do you have, is there a menu? The answer was “no. we have the usual things”. I know they just opened recently but gotta have trained people and seemed like there was no leadership. Also the host down in lobby told me they “should” have a table for me on the roof despite my reservation because of the private event. “Should?!” What is this a Seinfeld episode? “You know how to take reservations, but not Hold reservations?” Ridiculous

    We made this reservation and there ended up being a private event. I don’t know why we were even able to make the reservation but we were not able to order food and drinks were a hassle. It took us quite a while to get there so it was a pretty bad experience overall. Defiantly will not return

    Great ambiance, delicious food, and attentive service! There is an amazing rooftop and an outdoor garden area where you can dine as well (it was raining when we arrived so we moved our table inside). The place had a few large party tables but it didn’t feel crowded or loud. Pleasant design and lighting create the right atmosphere for a date night or a night out with friends. Interesting cocktails to try. Food was good with lots of small plates to choose from for sharing. We ended up skipping the entrees. Very attentive service. The place was great all around and we will definitely be back (for some summertime rooftop visits for sure).

    The Rooftop experience was overrated. I loved the ambiance but the venue was very loud and crowded. I had made a reservation for 7:00 as was told that there was a private party booked for the rooftop until 7:30. I was never notified by the restaurant that there would be a scheduling conflict. Also, there was no true apology from the management about having to wait. We did not get seated at the rooftop until 7:40 and even then the private party was still there. We were there to celebrate a graduation and no acknowledgement was made about the special occasion. Also did not realize the rooftop had a very limited menu that were very expensive for the portions we got.

    What may be an acceptable level of food and service in middle America was underwhelming for NYC. Great decor, inattentive service and just ok food.
