  • "Took my sister-girl there for her birthday and had a great time. The hostess was awesome, seating me with a great view of Time Square & allowed that I had added guests at the last minute. The waitress was cool; only problem, it was a slow night & we got there late. We had to order everything (food & drinks) at once because the kitchen & bar was shutting down. However, they allowed us to be there as long as we wanted; we had the place to ourselves without a rush."

  • "The food was absolutely delicious. And I love the ambiance and location/view. I just wish someone would've acknowledged my birthday like most restaurants do. I planned a dinner there with my friends to celebrate and it wasn't acknowledged by anyone at the restaurant. They only spoke of my request to sit near the window for the view; which I do greatly appreciate."

  • "It was a great place for visitors to have the best view of Times Square! We celebrated our first year anniversary in NYC and stayed at the Rennaisance hotel where this lounge is, and the lack of direct view of Times Square from the hotel rooms is made up for by the view in this restaurant, even though we weren't able to get the prime seat at the windows facing the square. Our server was very friendly and attentive and even had the Mojitos on the house for our celebration! The food was wonderful, in large portions,though my risotto plate wasn't much to write home about. Overall, it was a great dining experience and I would readily recommend this place for visitors to Times Square! A good find!"

  • "Best night view of Time Square, I reserved in advance and works well, even with baby and stroller got a great table, all has a great view of Time Square, but the drinks, food and service are really bad, but the visit at night it's worth, it's all about the view."

  • "We were looking for a quick, delicious pre-theatre (7 pm on a Tuesday) dinner spot and we found it! We had a beautiful table overlooking Times Square and had a mix of appetizers and entrees. Food was delicious, and served promptly. We were all very happy with our order. Even got a turkey club to go for my husband who was running late and he said that was delicious too! Will definitely be back."

  • "I loved this place from the well seasoned chicken wings to the hot and cheesey spinach dip.... You must order those two. Our view was amazing it looked over time square. My friend loved it for her birthday.. And I can't forget to add that the Chef came out and met us and send us a plate of steak tacos... I loved this place."

  • "R Lounge was the best spot we could have chosen to take in the extraordinary Times Square. The views were spectacular. If you don't mind paying top dollar for food and drinks, this is the place to be at night."

  • "This was a great find in the middle of TImes Square - I made a reservation for my husband's birthday and asked for a table by the window. When we arrived, there werent any tables by the window available, so we sat on an inside table - very disappointed, but about 10 minutes later the hostess came and reseated us! The food was good - we tried the Philly Cheesesteak sliders, the Crab Cakes & the Grilled Angus Burger between the 2 of us and liked everything. The views of Times Square are truly spectacular! Highly recommended!"

  • "You get the best view of times square here. The food is good and the price is reasonable. Although there are other places in the area with better menu option and better tasting food. I've been here twice and my major complaint is the service. It felt like the servers are not that happy serving their customers. I've never seen a smile, not even once from the servers the couple of times I've been here. The only time they would say thanks is when they hand you your bill. On my way out, I said thank you and goodnight to the hostess and she just looked at me, didn't say a word or even smiled. I doubt I'll be coming back."

  • "Service was not good and the only bad point of our evening. They need more servers to handle that hotspot of a lounge. We had to wait for everything including paying our tab. Views were awesome and dessert was great. The only damper to the evening was the lack of service."

  • "This is the perfect spot for an amazing view of Times Square. I brought my mother here as it was her first time visiting New York. We had dinner elsewhere, and then came to the R Lounge for cocktails and conversation. Be sure to make reservations and request a window seat, which provide the best views. I can't say enough good things about this place! The drinks and service were fantastic, we stayed for over an hour and never felt rushed. Cocktails ran about $15 each, however you are really paying for the views and ambience of this establishment. I must try if you are in the area, or have people visiting from out of town. "

  • "Never been here before really enjoyed the view and seating arrangement we had but the server was just so pushy about us ordering he came over 10 times in a span of 5 mins and I continue to tell him I would call him once the remaining members of our party arrives. There were not a large selection on the menu the burger was okay a large portion but I would have expected the food to be better. "

  • "The place is amazing, we had a table looking out the window direct on times sq, couldn't of asked for a better table. The food is lovely, the only thing that let it down was the service, we booked a table for 8.30pm but didn't actually get the table till 9.10pm due to a private function that over ran. We were just told to wait in the bar their was no apology or offer of a cutious drink whilst we wait. I would say the service needs to step up to match the view and food... "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "It is a perfect spot for a tourist to grab a drink and soak in the Times Square lights. While their food looks great, I would recommend keeping it simple and ordering just the finger food. Our waiter was easily frustrated and didn't bother to come around and check on us. "

  • "This restaurant/bar has such a great view, just above Times Square, and great cocktails and bar food, it's my go-to place to meet friends for a drink or snack or meal before or after a matinee of a Broadway show. The light show with all the billboards and lights of Times Square is amazing."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "The food was basically a bar menu. The only thing going for this place is the view of time square. All I can imagine was how they might use the space for the new year's ball drop. To finish off the dinner, I ordered a cup of tea. I was literally given a bag of Lipton tea, a mug with some hot water. It costed $5.50. The Cobb salad was overly pre-dressed with brown avocado. The service was beyond terrible. I will never return, but anyone seeking a place with a view for a bottle of beer, it is good for that. Do to go for a meal or order any coffee or tea. "

  • "my group of 4 reserved a table at the front window for 7p. we arrived 30 minutes early to verify the reservation and confirm location. assured all was well, we were finally seated at 7:15, but given a side window seat. host told us as soon as the table next to us finished dessert (which they were eating) we would be moved over. waiter was less than interested in serving us. food wasn't delivered to the table at one time--about 5 minutes in between. was never offered refills for drinks or dessert. food was average, nothing to write home about. oh, and that table we were promised--never happened. the two ladies decided to take root and stay for the balance of our time there. staff should have timed our arrival/seating better."

  • "Staff was not very accommodating, menu was very limited, they were out of a lot of items on the menu, missing numerous wines from the wine list. I had been there a couple of years before and the food was great, great presentation and an extremely friendly staff. I can definitely say the service and overall quality has gone downhill. "

  • "We had reservations here and I am very glad we did because the place was hopping at 11:00 p.m. and deservedly so because the view knocks your socks off. The wait staff goes out of its way to get whatever it is one may want or need.The food is quite good, but it is all about the view. The flashing lights of Times Square are mesmerizing and it is a thousand times better to see that razzle-dazzle with a glass of wine in hand, seated comfortably away from the weather! We definitely are returning here when next in NYC."

  • "We ate at the lounge for a quick bite and ordered fish tacos for 17.00. They were basically two miniscule pieces of cod and a couple of shaved radishes on torillas about 3 inches wide. There were three and in addition to the shells being like rubber they had no taste. Breakfast in the morning were eggs that were runny and probably not even real. The view is fantastic but other than that terrible!"

  • "The Manager on Duty was very accommodating in seating our group when we arrived 30 minutes late after our 10:30 Open Table reservation. We were seated at the perfect table with a fabulous view of Times Square. While our waiter was not impressive at all, the food and drinks were very good. There are a variety of items on the menu. Anything from small bites to full meals. Drinks were pricey for me, but $16/drink may be the norm for NYC. I ordered the grilled salmon with Israeli couscous and sauteed spinach. It was so good that I was still licking my fingers the day after. Just a very nice place to end an evening after a play. The atmosphere and food are good, but the view is awesome!"

  • "The incredible view of Time Square is what attracted me to eat at R Lounge, a hotel restaurant - something I usually only do on business travel. It turned out, the evening was a wash-out and we could not walk around and enjoy Time Square. The lobby area of the Renaissance just outside the R Lounge turned out to be our resting spot after our first of two shows and before dinner. We were seated right away for an early 5:30 pm pre-theatre reservation - fine as we were able to dine and were not at all rushed. The menu is good, a choice of small plates and entrees. Prices were as expected for NYC. The service was very good. Our server was always nearby when we needed something. We've already told friends about R Lounge and we will return."

  • "We needed something to eat and a chance to sit for a bit after spending an hour in line at TKTS in Times Square. So this was a perfect chance to grab a late lunch. The menu has plenty of small plates which was perfect since we would be dining out for dinner as well. We were seated at a table / couch area overlooking Times Square, which was fun. We ordered edamame, fish tacos, and some salmon appetizers. Perfect. Our waitress was helpful and friendly; we will certainly go back."

A lot of ppl been asking me where it located since I took a lot of pics and post on IG/FB ...even ppl from NYC doesn't recognize this secret spot... The view is amazing but the only thing is that it too spend it ... For one drink is $12 Cuban society cocktail and the food is like $16 but it was worth it cuz of the view and the quiet spot that I got close to the window... You should try it and it's perfect for a romantic or to take someone who hasn't never been in the city NYC ... $103 I paid for 4 drinks, flabpizza and mini burgers..."
