I was here to celebrate a friends birthday. We paid a deposit to have a wonderful window seat which was well worth it. The short rib eye and filet mignon was amazing. Lobster mac and cheese could have been better, but the organic potatoes were...More

We arranged for a private room to host a birthday party. The room was lovely with great views of the city. Service was very exceptional!!! Just great. We were very happy with the food as well. Certainly a fine restaurant.

We dined here for an anniversary and had a wonderful time. The views of Philadelphia are gorgeous (try to time your visit for sunset!). You may want to reserve a window table well in advance as they fill up quick (deposit required to do that)....More

HIGH HIGHS was not ironic: the best part is the location. Can't beat the view. 35 floors up Liberty 2 and even for locals the city looks freshly thrilling at that height. So on venue alone, R2L gets points, and honestly, some, though not all,...More

No doubt about it you pay for the view. This is for tourists. It's OK. Not exacty the Rainbow Room. Good Happy Hour. Locals avoid it.

You sit a top the Two Liberty skyscrapper building with panoramic views of the south and west sides of Philadelphia. Although there are some better restaurants in Philadelphia, the food and drinks are very good. And the view cannot be beat.

R2L is a great place to watch the sunset to start romantic evening. The food is great and the price is very reasonable. However, the service was mixed.

The view was superb as we were there during sunset. Food was also delicious. However, service was subpar.

Yes I think that you and your group will be more than fine. They had a dining area and an area that was designed for happy hour. Because it's on a Saturday it might slightly overwhelm the bar but I really think you'll be ok... More
