Good Spot For Group Reservations
I've been to 40/40 several times since I moved to NYC nearly 10 years ago. It started off as a low key sports bar w/o any cover charge where you could go and watch the game and, on occasion, catch a random Jay-Z sighting. Today, for all intents and purposes, it's morphed into a full fledged night club, complete w/ bottle service, cover charge ($10 for ladies, $20 for guys), annoying bouncers, dress codes, etc.
I took a group of 8-10 friends here recently for a birthday celebration. Made my reservation a few weeks in advance for a table. When we arrived everything went smoothly w/o a hitch. My party was escorted to our table w/o paying any cover charge and our waitress took care of us all night. Expensive drinks though.

Fun sports bar with a night
Fun sports bar with a night club feel to it...the food is good but nothing fancy. A great place to begin a night out! Great music playing!

I loved this place! The atmosphere
I loved this place! The atmosphere was awesome. I wasn't ready to leave. Cant wait to come back. The braised beef rib was soooo tender and delish. Best part of my weekend in NYC! Jay Z did good!

We took our friends from Italy
We took our friends from Italy there to watch the NY Knicks game. It was our first time there and we were nervous that it would not be fun but it definitely was and we had a great time. The food was good, the prices were reasonable and the staff was very polite! We will definitely go back!!

Food, Drinks, and Sports
This was the best place to be to watch the NBA playoffs. The bar scene is very energetic as well as the food was better than expected. Recommend this lounge to any person who is looking for a nice bar in NY with great music, service, and possibility of spotting a celebrity. I experienced all 3.

I had a great time. The food and drinks were excellent and very well reasonably priced. The music and scene was good. It was alot of fun especially when you just need a place to come to after work and kick back.

Birthday First Time Visiting
When Jay-Z opened the 40/40 Club I knew that I wanted to attend. I have been waiting to visit the club, so I am so happy I had the chance to do so. The interior was beautiful and the group was so alive and exciting. The food was great, I really enjoyed myself. I will be returning.

Friends b- day
Was in town for a friend's birthday, and had reservations at the 40/40 club. The atmosphere was just right, not too crowded. It is the 10 year anniversary and the anniversary menu gave good options for a fair price. Service overall was great, there was one minor issue, but the competent and helpful staff resolved it immediately, and our night went off without a hitch. Would definitely go back again.

It was my first time in NYC and the visit to the 40/40 club was a wonderful experience for my husband and I. We came to the city to celebrate our anniversary! The visit here made our trip complete. Great drinks! Great food! Great service! Great experience!

Better than expected!
I went here with a party of 4 on a Gilt deal. It was a great deal so that made it even more worthwhile. The service was a little slow as the night progressed and the place got busier. They were quick to clear our table but slow to bring our drinks. I tried the tequila chicken and the shortrib. The chicken was a little dry but pretty good. The mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a box and just but some truffles on top. The shortrib was my fave by far. There drink menu definitely has something for everyone. We all liked our drinks very much. Get there before 9 if you want to have a conversation at dinner.

We brought our 20 something
We brought our 20 something adult children and they LOVED the place. We have been several times but never eaten there. The food was very good - we had heavy appetizers and drinks. We would recommend for a fun night out. Our waiter was EXCEPTIONAL! He could not have been more gracious or accommodating. He gave us a tour of the property and the "private rooms" available to rent out for parties. Jay Z and Beyonce made a late night appearance (1:30AMish) long after his concert at Yankee Stadium.
Another note, I left my wallet behind a year ago and the staff could not have been nicer. Someone anwered the phone during the day, found the wallet, and met me at the door with it in hand and intact. I really cannot say enough abou the staff!

Great staff, great food, have to put on your list of places to go.

From Prague With Love
What a great night! I flew into the city from Miami to spend some time with my girlfriend and a group of her female friends from Prague and in trying to decide where to take them on a Saturday night I was looking for a place that was really nice but not too stuffy, not outrageously expensive and had food, great drinks and really great music...found it! 40/40 has all of that and then some! Great crowd, amazing DJ and really classy open spaces...you never feel crowded. Table service for food or a bottle is readily available and you don't have to take out a small personal loan to get it! 40/40 has instantly become one of my fav spots in NYC!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had an amazing time at the 40/40 club. This was my first stop in New York and it was so unforgettable!!! My husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves!!!

Excellent atmosphere. Excellent service. Excellent everything!!!

I normally don't give reviews but this was a great experience during the US Open. I have recommended the 40/40 Club to all that I met. The food was outstanding !!! Hope to see The 40 /40 Club in Houston.

Always on point!
I was in town for the weekend and brought a couple of friends with me. This is by far the nicest sports bar/club I've ever seen. The food was delicious, the customer service was superb and the drinks ... let's just say I got my money's worth!!! Thanks 40/40, I'll be back!

Classy and Wonderful
The 40/40 made my New York trip worth it. The food was absolutely what you want when you imagine it. I ordered the Mac N' Cheese and I was so impressed (which is saying a lot from somewhere who has very high expectations). It hit the spot, was made so perfectly, brought back nostalgic memories and was just delicious! I also ordered a turkey slider. Note: if you like turkey burgers, then this one will certainly be like none that you have ever tasted. So succulent and was spiced to perfection. If you are not into turkey burgers, don't order one. They have a huge menu to choose from, so let your stomach guide you. My guests also had the nachos - which were stacked high and loaded with toppings...no skimping here!!! And to drink, the Loco Coco!

the Lady at the door (originally from Egypt short and silver dress) made us feel uncomfortable by offering us a private belly dance, and asked us where we are able to buy "hash".

Hot sportsbar and night club!
Great sportsbar, DJ spinning good music (hip hop, top 40), drinks are OK, priced average ($13-17) dollars.
Food: the 40/40 hot wings are very spicy and good! Chicken quesadilla is a small portion, not worth the price.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The waitress was amazing and payed alot attention to my daughter. We had a blast.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night spot and great food
We (my 21 year old daughter and me) arrived after a Broadway show for a late dinner. We ordered cocktails, several appetizers and shared a main course. Everything was delicious. The food also did not too long to arrive at our table. The atmosphere was vibrant and lively music, RandB, pop and funk played while we were there. We saw two celebreties. It was a great night, and my daughter probably wished she was there with someone other than her mother.

My friends and I go to the 40/40 often; it's almost always a random choice. Their food menu is good (definitely try the mac & cheese) and what ever drink you need, I'm sure they have it. Its a great sports club and can get pricy so watch it!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great game at 40/40 club
We came here for food and to watch the Knicks game. There was a great atmosphere and there was a Halloween party going on downstairs we had a great view of everyone's costumes. The food was lovely with huge portions!! Our waitress was really friendly.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was on point!
The food was really good, spicy shrimp, spicy fries and 40/40 chicken wings...the cook is on point. The drinks on the other hand are over priced at $15/glass and had NO alcohol what so ever and we had them from 2 different bartenders.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Have been here twice with my boyfriend and both times the food and atmosphere has been great. If you go before club hours you will generally have the restaurant to yourself. Great atmosphere and all the employees are very friendly and accommodating.

Actual fun place to go to
Everything fell right about where I expected th to fall. The food was amazing, ambience was great, and our waitress felt for like a hostess.the only reason they did not get 5 stars on the service was because of the time it took to actually get our orders, but that's only understandable since it was thanksgiving! Food was actually cheap too!

Special Thanksgiving Menu
Advertised through Open Table, we didn't know what to expect, but the location was perfect to where we were and needed to find a place to celebrate our thanksgiving meal after the parade and prior to flying out of town. Although the ambiance was night club, with couches and low tables, the food was amazingly delicious, gourmet in quality and more than plentiful. The variety of the selections and the home made quality of the ingredients and recipes made the meal particularly satisfying and offered sufficient quantity for the much appreciated and anticipated leftover feast the next day. Very nicely done and all for just $20, fantastic.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Thanksgiving Dinner
I can tell you the staff was fantastic, the servers were spot on. The food was absolutely delicious. Served on a 15" plate, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn bread stuffing, greenbeans, mac n' cheese, and the freshest tasty cranberry relish. There was pie and ice cream for desert, if wanted. To me it was the dinner deal of the holiday..$20 price fixed for two courses. I would go there weekly, if Thanksgiving happened each week.

A very unique dining experience. Eating whilst people are drinking and dancing round you. Amazing!

Big Jay Z fan visiting from Ohio
I am a big fan of Jigga man and was looking forward to visiting his establishment during my most recent NYC trip. The online reservation process was easy and seamless. When we got there we told the door people we had reservations for 4 - they got us seated right away but did not ask our names to check off the reservations. We had to sit upstairs to dine because of Dylan's bar mitzvah (which was incredible by the way hahah) so we didnt get to really see or experience the main floor. It was a bit cramped eating for 4 at the small cocktail tables upstairs, but due to our earlier arrival, the staff allowed us to push 2 tables together to give us more room. The bar mitzvah was very LOUD which was sort of a distraction but otherwise a great time!
