Frequently Asked Questions


When should I arrive for my mini lawn or Restaurant & Bar reservation?

Reservations are strongly recommended, so make yours in advance. We ask that guests arrive to The Rooftop at least a few minutes in advance of the time they made their online reservation for. Note, the escalators also take a minute or so from ground floor to rooftop.

How do I get to The Rooftop?

We’re located at The Seaport, on The Rooftop at Pier 17: 89 South Street
New York, NY 10038 To access The Greens, use the escalator located on the south side of Pier 17 (opposite of Brooklyn Bridge side). Guests who require special accommodations (ADA) may enter by using the elevators located on the ground floor near the Box Office (West Entrance).


What if I need to cancel my reservation?

For mini lawns, guests are able to reschedule or cancel before 48 hours of their made reservation time. Do this within your Tock account. Once within 48 hours of your reservation, all sales are final and non-refundable. For possible inclement weather, see “WEATHER” section below

Restaurant & Bar reservations can be canceled without penalty at any time, though we appreciate you canceling through Tock or reaching out to us as soon as possible for a heads up.
