    Aesthetically pleasing, drinks are good but definitely over priced. Drinks are 20+ but aren’t a full glass.. the food is good but very very tiny appetizers so not worth the money. The DJ was great.

    My second time coming to 48 Lounge and will continue to come back again when the event calls for it. As may be expected the menu is pricey but you get a lot for it here. The staff both times I came were A+. The manager and all of the waitresses/bartenders are top notch and the drinks and food were awesome. The presentation of some of the drinks in particular can be very cool.

    We had a reservation at midnight and the drinks and DJ were great. However we ordered a round of shots and they never showed up even after reminding them. Then the hostess came at 1am and told us we had to leave because they had another reservation. They shouldn’t book reservations back to back like that. We wanted to stay but she kept hovering and told us we had to give up our table. The reservation time should be a lot longer for a club with dancing and drinks.

    Honestly, I am a pretty outgoing person and go to lounges and restaurants in the city all the time. This place has an absolutely amazing vibe, the nicest of team and one heck of a DJ. The ambience is chic and classy. They have a huge variety of cocktails and drinks since it is innately a lounge and the food options might not be the most extensive but whatever they have comes out well.

    We went to celebrate my birthday before seeing a Broadway show, so we were there very early at 5pm. Not sure if it was the time, or because of an upcoming snowstorm, but the place was empty. This is not a complaint. The hostesses/waitresses were super attentive and the bartender was wonderful. The lounge itself was beautiful and had great ambience. We imagine later in the evening it’s very fun. We ordered some of the special drinks, and though they are expensive, I think they were worth the price for the experience; plus the old fashioned was delicious. My friend mentioned my birthday, and they kindly gave us birthday brownies with a serious sparkler. Oh and the tater tots with truffle were amazing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

    We were in NYC for the day, and when the Midtown crowd hit an all time high around dinner, we had lost our patience. Thankfully, we had 48 to escape to and relax. The music is loud enough to not overhear others conversations while still being able to speak to each other without yelling. We ordered 2 of the smoky old fashioned, a mother of dragons, and a Moscow mule. We also had chicken sliders, which were more like bites but delicious all the same, and the Mac and cheese bites. Everything was absolutely amazing. Our server was the highlight though. Sam was so attentive, knowledgeable, and gracefully friendly. It really tied the experience together to be treated like regulars!

    white wine was overpriced and not very chilled. smoked whiskey was not up to par. 2 out of the 3 small bites were served cold (possibly because they were served all at the same time).

    Made reservations for someone’s birthday and still had to wait 1.5 hours to be seated. No one made up for the inconvenience and also kept dodging us after we continually had to ask what’s going on with our reservations. They sat us with another group of people. Smh

    This was my first time at 48 Lounge. I had a seated table reservation for two. The good news is that we were seated on time by a friendly hostess. We each ordered a drink. It took 30 minutes from the time we ordered to when my date got her drink. It took 45 minutes until I got my drink. They didnt even bring them out together. When I requested the check, it took 15 minutes just to get the check. The place was semi busy but there was no reason it should have taken so long. It was also incredibly loud.

    48 Lounge is a very attractive cocktail lounge with creative appetizers. The service was quick and food prompt. We were there at 5pm and it was very quiet. I'm not sure when the crowd would pick up. The drinks were a bit expensive for what they were.

    I was planning a birthday dinner for my wife , and the whole week before the general manager, Anthony and I were in communication back and fourth throughout the week. He was so understanding, so patient, so calm, and reasonable. I cannot speak enough about how happy I am about our experience at the 48 Lounge. 10 out of 10 experience. We felt the love the whole time . Would definitely be coming back .
