                                                  a few Things what would make this place much better is to deal with the weird smell in the place and lounge seats are a bit too Laid back and old looking. Service is Good, food and drinks are great, it just has more potential.

                                                  My lady & I went here for our Christmas dinner. I been wanting to check this place out for sometime now and I was very impressed overall. I'm a Korean and never been introduced to this kind of upscale Korean/Contemporary American cuisine. I was very impressed with the mix of flavors from Korean/American/SE Asian flavors. Chef knew how to deliver the Korean flavors (Which are very strong & pungent) to people who never tried before without being over come by them. Please know that this place is not like the restaurants in K-Town in Manhattan. This place is for foodies and to explore combinations of many different flavors come together in harmony. Service was very good and the knowledge/explanation of each dish we had (9 course tasting menu) was very well done. I have a friend who is a professional chef and I definitely recommend him going to this place. I def will be going back for more.

                                                  Went to Bubble Lounge for my birthday on Saturday (11/30) and had a BLAST! After scoping the place out online it seemed like it was a very romantic and quiet setting. And even when we arrived the vibe was what we thought. Ordered some food and some drinks and just relaxed and enjoyed the vibe. But after the DJ setup...Bubble Lounge turned into a completely different place! In addition to the excellent food and drinks, the music took this place to another level COMPLETELY! I'm not sure what Bubble Lounge is like during the week or after work but I know FOR SURE that I WILL be back here on another Saturday. Thank you Bubble Lounge

                                                  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 place has a decent feel to it but it was completely empty and now I know why. The service was terrible, the food was terrible and the bill for 3 people for drinks and small dishes was outrageous! Very disappointing.

                                                  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.

Just a great place to hang out and be with friends or on a date. Bring some $$$$$, champagne is not cheap. But well worth the trip. cost and tip. :) melt

                                                  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.

                                                  I visit Bubble Lounge every time I come to NYC. It's a smooth, cool lounge for a good cocktail and a few friends. On weekends a DJ spins great music and they have an amazing selection of bubbly!

                                                  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.

                                                  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.

                                                  Good for hanging out with friends. Not good for conversation or for dinner or for clients! It's definitely not a restaurant-more of a bar/lounge.

                                                  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.

                                                  the service was great, the drinks so-so and the setting was beautiful. however, although they call themselves a lounge, they advertised a dj and dancing on their facebook. we got there and it was just a normal, everyone sitting around lounge. no dancing, and a gu playing music off of a computer. boo.

                                                  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.

                                                  Went to Bubble Lounge on Valentine's day with my good friend. I thought the food portion would not be enough for the both of us..boy was I wrong! I was so full and the champagne was delicious. The music selection was also A+. Staff was very friendly. I intend to come here again. This is definitely a must go!
