Lounge is definitely the right word to describe this place. The seating is all comfortable chairs and couches, not a typical table. They do serve food, but it's really more appetizers than tapas/small plates. We tried a variety of cocktails and loved them all. Really enjoyed their unique cocktail creations.

Made this reservation after reading other reviews. We needed a place close to the theater and just wanted a pre-show bite to eat. The food was excellent and so were the drinks. We stayed longer than planned and also ordered dessert (not planned at all). Highly recommend!

Great if you need a place before the theatre and have no other options. Suitable for almost no one.

I was going to Radio City and wanted a bite to eat before the show. My friend and I had some appetizers and drinks and enjoyed everything immensely. It turned out that one of the hostesses was a former student of mine and we had a wonderful reunion. It is a small world!
Everyone was super friendly and welcoming. I will return here again.

Really was looking forward to dinner/drinks but our waitress, when delivering our drinks, dumped one down one entire side of me. Perhaps it is difficult to serve since the seating is more casual (we were at sofas with a coffee table). We had to take our food to go and I was surprised they didn't comp our drinks (just one appetizer).

We went after a 2:00 show. We were the only ones in the place until 9pm. If you're looking for a scene, I would say definitely go later. However, we enjoyed having the place to ourselves. The staff was super friendly and on top of everything. The ambiance was incredible. I would love to see how the place feels later when it is full of people. The blueberry poprocks cocktail was more dessert than a drink and so satisfying and fun. I would highly recommend the meatballs and grilled cheese.

I had always liked the 48 Lounge but my last visit was very disappointing. There was a big group there and although we had a table and were sitting, the folks from this crowd seemed to be all over and almost on top of us. And they were extremely loud. I think the place should have been reserved for them all by themselves.

48 lounge was an awesome experience. Highly recommend going there. The music was on point and the drinks were good priced. The layout of the place is very nice and not too crowded. Open until real late which was fantastic.

48 Lounge was amazing. We were there Saturday evening for a couples anniversary celebrations. The customer service was amazing, the drinks were great, and the DJ was jamming! Ray the manager took care of us when he found out it was an anniversary. Thanks Ray! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to have a great evening out.

Excellent service. We were celebrating my friend's engagement and the hostesses welcomed them with sparklers on my request. They were all very kind.

Nice place inside with good drinks, but don't expect good food. At least not the pizza. Unless you enjoy to pay $14 for a frozen pizza. Nice atmosphere though and good music
