  • Great Bday Fun
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We had a great time, the wait staff was very attentive to me and my guest. My boyfriend arrived and felt great. He enjoyed the atmosphere and the attention. Unfortunately he was unable to order Hot Wings... which is his favorite. Besides that everything else was perfect. We enjoyed the music and even though there wasn't a dance floor we were still able to dance in the small space provided. Maybe he will surprise me with a party for my Bday or Wedding shower.

    For what it boasts about, the list of bubblies is not as extensive as I expected. We had glasses of Feuillate, just to be safe. We tried the truffle potatoes and duck meat balls, they taste like they were refrigerated and heated upon order. The furniture is old, dirty and uncomfortable. The bathroom is dark and looks haunted. I expect better food, ambiance, and service for the price.

    Our server was very good for most of the night. The list of champagnes (& a few sparkling wines) was long and deep with plenty of variety. The small plates were well prepared and presented. We really just had two gripes. The busboy hovered over us waiting to clear tables. It was practically empty at 8:30 on a Thursday so it wasn't as though they needed to turn tables. At their prices (all quite high for the list) we should not have felt rushed like that. Also, we were looking over the list to order another bottle when they lowered the lights so deeply that we could barely see even with the candles. The staff saw us struggling, and we even said something to the server, she acted like there was nothing she could do, so we left.

    I came here to visit friends that I haven't seen in awhile. We didn't eat- so I wanted to be fair with my four stars. just had a few drinks and we had the best time. It is a little pricey, but Im a 20-something year old so everything is pricey to me. I really enjoyed the decor.

    This has always been a goto spot for great ambience, awesome service and ofcourse expansive Champagne selection. We were a group of 8-10 and had a great time here on a saturday night with food, drink and a fun DJ. I like the setting with the comfy chair/couches and lighting. a success through and through.

    No offense, but this is what I hate about NY and its fancyness. I would LOVE this place and go very often if prices were, literally, half of what they are. The food (a few tapas to share) was actually very good. I loved the cheese, and the wine. Desserts were fantastic. And so was the bill. No wonder the place was completely empty when the places around were crowded. It looks nice, you try once, and that's it. After 3 days with 3 lunches and 3 dinners with my family around town, this was the most expensive and least favourite place of all. Don't get me wrong, the place rocks, it's just too expensive for what you get. Sorry!!

    Came here for the start of my sister's bachelorette night. My reservation was confirmed the night before which was nice that I didn't have to call them. We came to relax and and indulge. 't was cozy, and the couches are very comfortable. There was a chill music and the decor was very hip. They have an extensive list of bubbly, cocktails and the cheese was amazing. We got the 4 cheeses deal, and there was a decent amount with bread and fruits. It was a great way to start the night, and we were already talking about how we need to come back and bring people.

    My friends and I had a very nice time at the bubble lounge. I would say the service and ambiance were definitely highlights about this bar. The drinks were phenomenal and the seating was comfortable and casual. I do hesitate to offer the food five stars because I just wasn't blown away by either the menu or the quality of the dishes that we ordered. That's not to say the food was bad, it just wasn't 5 stars. All in all I would definitely go back for a predinner cocktail.

    I went to the bubble lounge with some friends for my birthday and I have to say I was pleased. I had a very good time and the staff were all really nice and knowledgeable. I had a duck and brie sandwich that was amazing! The only thing I regret ordering was the cheese platter. I would say don't order it unless you are a sophisticated cheese eater. Not a smoked Gouda girl like me.

    Went to Bubble Lounge for the second time. It had the same festive atmosphere as my first visit with a birthday party group in one sector of the lounge and post-dinner groups scattered throughout. The noise volume was up and it was difficult to hear my date across the table. Food and drinks were good and met the expectations built during my first visit.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    We visited bubble lounge for a bachelorette party. We were asked if we were part of the girls night out. We told our waitress we didn't know what that was and she wouldn't explain it to us. So after she took out order and walked away, we googled it. I guess there is a promo for girls night out and you get 15% off. We asked her if we cool have it and she basically snarled at us and said NO because you don't know what it was. This sounds very juvenile, but all she had to do was explain that it was a promo and because we didn't know if it, she couldn't give it to us. There wa no need to be rude!

    We had a very surprising time at the Bubble Lounge (NY, that is, since we also discovered they have two locations -- also in San Francisco). Service was relaxed and friendly, ambiance unpretentious and cool, prices very reasonable and food surprisingly good (yet it is certainly not a "restaurant"). We will be back; and often. What's more, parking is easy after 6 PM and public transportation couldn't be easier.

    I asked for a quiet table. In my reservation I am sure that I said I preferred a quiet table. Things started out ok, but there was a large party in the lounge that made things really noisy. I would think the staff would have known about the party, and seated us in a location far away, but no, we were seated near the DJ station and close to the party. We made the best of it, but I think the staff could have anticipated this and seated us in a more appropriate place. J

    Three long-time friends randomly selected this spot as our get-together location. After an evening of small plates and champagne-based cocktails it was determined to be one of the best nights we've had. Our server, Faustina, may have resembled Cruella DeVille but her demeanor was anything but. Her friendly attentiveness just added to the experience.

    I made a reservation for 2 @ 6, showed up early & asked if the were able to accommodate 6 of us instead. They let me sit early & wait for the rest of my party. The service was Ok in the beginning, but declined as it got busier. At one point we waited over 15 minutes for a bottle of wine. We ordered Happy Hour sliders a few minutes before HH was over & our server told us they would be regular priced as it was already 7pm. We ended up waiting over hour for the sliders, at least they honored HH pricing, because the server had taken so long. The check had 20% gratuity added & the server choose to ignore our split instructions which included cash. She said we hadn't added correctly & put the remainder on one card not counting the cash.

    The gilt package offered champagne and a platter of cheese. The champagne was delicious; the cheese serving was enough for maybe one squirrel. It would have been better if they advertised it as a "samples of our cheese menu". The place is very well decorated and they have a in-house chill DJ.

    Although The Bubble Lounge had given up our table because we were 20 minutes late (although I had confirmed the reservation and offered my credit card earlier in the day) we ended up sitting upstairs on couches and chairs. The service was friendly and the party platters were good. Everyone had a great time, the DJ was an extra bonus

    We went to Bubbles to see the musician, Cyrille Aimee and her band. Most of the people were talking quite loudly, we had to move tables. The performing area was next to the door, so patrons were walking through the performance all night, along with the wait staff delivering food to the party downstairs. It was a disruptive experience and will not go there for the music, but they had a hugh champagne selection.

    When we were seated, the maitre'd pointed out that it was happy hour and showed us that menu. The cocktails were half price. We ordered some small plates and all of the food was delicious. The cheese menu was particulary good and presented nicely. We each had three drinks. When the check arrived, we noticed that our cocktails were not at the reduced rate. The waitress said, "Oh, that drink is not part of the happy hour menu." The drink was on the cocktail list. She might have pointed out any exclusions when we ordered. We did have a nice time and enjoyed the food.

    As usual, the Bubble Lounge is classic New York. We took our (out of town) parents here for after dinner drinks and had a great time. The staff was attentive and polite, and since my mother-in-law loves champagne, she was in heaven. The only bad part of the whole evening was another customer who was very rude, but the staff handled the situation very nicely.

    When I arrived for my reservation I gave my name and was seated at a table by myself, even though two members of my party had already arrived and were seated elsewhere. The restaurant was practically empty so that confusion among the hostesses was strange. We had to flag down the waiter through a busser every single time we wanted something. Again, there were hardly any other parties there, so it was odd that absolutely no one paid attention to us. The champagne was of course wonderful, and the food there is simply OK. We had the potato skins, pigs in a blanket and sliders. Nothing wowed me, but nothing was bad either. The ambiance is outstanding here, and I'll definitely go back, I just wish the service was as bubbly as what they pour.

    Reservation was for 8 pm for 4 adults. We were seated on time at very good location. Waitress initially very attentive but less so as the evening went on. If you are looking to have Champagne for a special occasion this is the place....the selection was tremendous. The food was hit or miss. Our group ordered the tuna which was inedible and had to be sent back. The waitress seemed bothered by this and subsequently service was less than stellar and we felt a bit rushed as if they wanted us out. This was despite us ordering several other food items and two moderately expensive bottles of Champagne each over $100. I would not recommend coming here for the food but go to the bar and have a few drinks before heading somewhere else.

    My husband and I are avid champagne lovers so we were excited about visiting the Bubble Lounge for our first night in NYC. Although our waitress was pleasant and helpful, and the food was great, we were constantly distracted by the staff "party" that was happening in front of the bar. Everyone was chatting, eating, drinking (even shots!) instead of focusing on the 2-3 tables of guests that could have appreciated a little more attention. Our waitress seemed a little uncomfortable or shy about joining in, but we figured she was being drawn into the "party" since it seemed to be the "norm". Could have been a MUCH better night...we would have stayed MUCH longer, too...

I recommend you arrive for your reservation on time-I was slightly late because service at dinner was slow, and some friends of mine lost their table completely. Overall the music was good and the ambience was great. I would definitely go back!
