Excellent for a business lunch. Really quiet, professional service, and quick, tasty food.
Somewhat limited menu.
Showed up for a 6:45 reservation--sorry, no table. You can sit in the bar--which we did.
So only bar menu plus a few mains. 30 minutes later the server told us what we ordered was sold out. But the fries were good, so we made a meal of that!
Had not been to The Royalton in 20 years, still a great place to grab a drink. Cozy seating areas, fantastic service.
We made a reservation despite some of the less-encouragable reviews.
We decided to call ahead to make sure they were open, and to confirm the reservation. Yes, they're open, yes, see you then!
When we arrived, the place was chaos. There were loads of people everywhere and no clear direction as to where the dining area was, it was noisy and packed. We were told to head to the back for the dining room, which we did, trying to get through a dense, loud crowd and when we got there, they were doing some kind of afterwork event in the dining area, the people were packed in between all the tables - there was no where for us to sit. The staff were unapologetic, unprofessional, and rude, and as a result of having to find another place to dine, we were late for our show.
Forty Four shouldn't be allowed to take reservations until they have systems in place to manage themselves properly.
Food quality was fine. Service, ambiance and noise level were not. Busy hotel restaurant feel.
Very convenient for a business meeting. Ample room to have a meal and look over a few documents.
Chips were stale, seating was uncomfortable, calamari wasn’t crunchy and it was too fishy. Overall not a good experience
They were not open. Why would i be able to make a reservation if you are not open?
We could have made reservations else where if we had known. but instead we were scrambling to find a place that could take us that we actually good food in that area.
Beautiful room with a cool vibe. Good options for lunch, including salads (kale with burrata & chix was tasty) and sandwiches. Service was slow this visit -- and then one of the lunch orders was incorrect, and it took a very long time to replace. Otherwise, a good meal.
Dinner before Broadway show, however restaurant was closed and yet I still was able to book a reservation??? Terrible experience. I don't know who to blame - open table or the hotel restaurant!??
Music too loud, food mediocre, service nonchalant.
I would never go back nor recommend and had to apologize for my selection to friends that had come in from Japan.
Their idea of fried chicken sliders is a chicken nugget on a roll with guacamole from a jar. Truly disgusting.
It was disconcerting to be the only dinner patrons in a large restaurant. We had theater tickets and did not have the time to look elsewhere for a more positive atmosphere. Dinner was fine - no complaints; no raves. Service was very good though apologetic - in particular because the menu online was extensive and the actual menu was quite limited. It was explained that the website showed last year’s offerings.
It used to be a place to go, now it is dull and yet very loud with somewhat limited hotel menu. The level of noise and music is unbearable. For the crowd this now dull place can attract they should really tone their stereo down. It is not 2000s any more, no one, even young people are eager to drown their conversation in this unbearable noise. Loud is out of fashion.
I go to Forty Four all the time. It is convenient. They honor reservations. The food is reasonable and decently priced, and the service is very good. The restaurant is, however, desperately in need of a renovation. It is objectively ugly and outdated; it looks like a cruise ship from the 1970s.
Fantastic business lunch. Kale salad with grilled shrimp was delicious, and a generous portion. Caesar salad also looked good. Waters were replenished often (not so much on my iced tea).
Was quiet enough to actually have a conversation, and the space is sleek & sexy.
44 is my go-to for midtown business breakfasts. The tables are spaced far apart, noise level low and service is attentive. Not a people watching spot (go to Michael's for that) just a solid place to meet,eat and talk.
Food was good, but waiter got our order wrong. We ordered two salads; one with chicken and dressing on salad and one plain with dressing on side. It came out with the dressing in side of chicken salad. No big deal, but it happened.
Major decline in quality of food. Horrible and inexcusable. Overly salty, poorly cooked and not fresh
It wAs my daughters first MY trip and this was the best meal by far in the coolest restaurant. Arben and Kenny were fantastic!
Unbeatable location but last few times I've been to 44 the service has been really slow.
Good location for a drink. Aside from the truffle fries, the rest of the food wasn't good. Sushi and Japanese plates were chewy and tasteless.
Spectacularly average on every level. No atmosphere and overpriced food. My turkey breast sandwich was stone cold in the middle… how? I took a client to this restaurant and had to apologise to them as it was so bad. There are so many other better restaurants in NYC.
Forty Four is a neighborhood gem, a standout in the land of university clubs (Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Penn and Columbia) and theatre district eateries. From the hostess to the servers, the staff are cordial and welcoming, and attend to every request with grace and efficiency. Food presentation is lovely and the preparation sublime. The chocolate chip cookies are crisp, as I like them, yet the chips are molten. How do they do that?
Great food, very good service. Chic decor, comfortable seating.
Place is a nice lounge. Great for a drink and snack.... was a pretty light evening. Had a great table and we enjoyed ourselves
Nestled in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Midtown, this oasis of privacy begins as soon as the doors swing open. Intimate atmosphere, good service, great food!
Even though we received a confirmation from open table the restaurant was not open. Booking was for Xmas day evening so it was impossible to find alternative dineingin New York. It ruined our Christmas Day. Will never use your website again
Open table took our reservation but the restaurant was actually closed
Will never dine here again...only good as a random place to grab a drink if that...
Service was awful
For dinner and drinks, Forty Four is really lounge seating off the main entrance to the hotel, but it's fun and high energy. Wine and food were good. Service was fast and attentive. My friend and I shared the truffle fries and meatball appetizers and the avocado salad. All yummy.
Had a lovely time, and my friend enjoyed the hickory-smoked old fashioned (a statement drink!). Glasses of wine are expensive. Cheese platter was tasty with great toasted bread slices. Truffle fries were a bit disappointing, but Pimientos were outstanding.
Very good bar scene, if you can reserve and sit on one of the lounge seats even better. The drinks are always good, the Hickory old fashioned is a staple and it never gets boring watching them prepare the drink.
Love this place for lunch meetings! Most days it's good to make a reservation especially if you have 6 or more people.
Made dinner reservation and the restaurant was not serving foid
The food was good and staff very polite but overall service was slow. Was there for a business breakfast-not too busy or complicated, but we had to wait a while for our food.
Variety of food choices in a glamorous setting. Attentive service but would have appreciated if server had informed us when asked abut the shrimp appetizer that it was actually quite large instead of advising us it only had 2 shrimp (it had 3 plus generous serving of vegetables) which made it sound small.
Great breakfast spot. Seat cushion was filthy but otherwise dynamite experience and will return for the food, service and the fact that it's a quiet place for a breakfast meeting.
Great place for lunch in a very convenient location in mid-town Manhattan close to Grand Central Station and Times Square.
