I've been eating here for a few years now. Great restaurant, bar, lounge! The food and beverages are reasonably priced. Love the roof top setting. Huge tv's to watch sports. Various table settings to accommodate different part sizes. Owner is pretty cool. Staff are nice, but not that attentive. Sometimes the food takes long. I'd recommend it especially during late nights. Open until 4am!

Ya know I love the scene. Frat house/Brokerage house, it's just before and after. I just love the food here on the rooftop - salad with a bonus" Ahi for me" (+$5 for the salad topper ladies) is worth it! The drinks are strong, my stilettos stomp to the best of old and new, and the scene is fun. Good food, good scene, open roof. And after? Shots nearby at the Hairy Monk pub with new friends.

A group of us went here for a co-worker's going away party during happy hour. From the start it took us about 15 minutes to get our first drink, beginning a tradition of slow, unreliable service for the whole evening. The food came quickly, but somehow was already cold. The fried calamari was like fried rubber rings. The chicken spring rolls were basically cold meat mush inside a chewy shell. At first we had about 9 slow waitresses occasinoally stopping by, and though the one who finally decided to stick with us was nice, we were still pretty dissatisfied. At least the roof had a nice view and a cool breeze. Maybe this place is better late at night, but don't bother during happy hour!

The only reason to go to Tonic East is for the rooftop bar. There are plenty of seats, as well as room to stand around, but it gets crowded fast. The service is slow, especially on a nice day. The food is great, although a bit over-priced. Try the tater tots or the combination platter!

Fell in last night around 9:30pm. We went directly to the rooftop and found a table, as it had yet to get packed. Our waitress was courteous and attentive. I had the seared ahi, and my wife the ahi tartar. The food was fine, and had a couple of beers to go with. By 10pm, the place was totally packed, mostly college kids. It was nice being outdoors, and for $50 bucks, overall a good experience.

I went with a couple of friends to have lunch and found it to be a very nice place. The atomosphere was great. And the lunch menu was fantastic! You cant beat a huge chicken ceaser wrap with fries and a salad for 5.95. The food and service was really good. The only thing is the wait for the food to come. It was pretty long considering that it wasn't many people there. But I rather wait then to have something uncooked. Overall it is a really nice place to go

Awesome place! I had my birthday party here and we all had a blast! We ordered a bunch of appetizers which were really good....Definitely try the crispy shrimp. The music was fun and the staff were very friendly. They really took care of me and my friends and made my birthday special. I would definitely go back again!
