R Lounge at Two Times Square Ratings and Reviews
Great views next to the window but some if the food is awful - avoid the pizza (you’d be better off with any frozen pizza at the grocery store) they have also changed the recipe on the wings which previously were great - overall food is greasy and drinks are watered down - the best part of the place is the view if Times Square and great servers but they need a new chef!!!
Went their for the view of Times Sq. Took my 7 year old granddaughter. Her first Broadway experience. Limited but sufficient menu. I had a petite filet that was quite good. Others had a salad, swordfish, grilled cheese. Swordfish was only fair, but others were just fine. Wine by the glass was a decent portion. Waitress was very good. Attentive without hovering. Took the necessary pictures, too. All in all, a great choice for the occasion.
Visited the R Lounge several times during a recent weeklong visit to NYC. Quite a find for us. On 2nd floor of Renaissance Hotel in the heart of Times Square, with 270 degree view of Times Square thru floor to ceiling windows from every table in the lounge area. Tasty well-made (and not skimpy) cocktails. Limited menu but nicely done and quite affordable, the beef brisket sandwich and "Grown-up Grilled Cheese" are both awesome. High quality experience with wonderfully moderate cost. Always active and busy but we could not believe we never had to wait for seating -- highly recommended!
We were after travelling for the previous 18 hours and managed to walk to the R lounge having pre booked weeks in advance at 5pm. we were 3rd in the q. I had emailed in advanced and asked for a nice window seat. The guy on the counter took us to the most uncomfortable seat with the sammlest table - the one in the far left corner. I had said to him can we move to a better one as they were available and he replied no with no appologies. I was really annoyed as we were the only ones who actutally ordered a proper mean while the other tables had just ordered drinks and had bigger tables, but we were shoved in the corner with the smallest table with no empathy from the reservation guy. Really bad experience!
4th time at the R Lounge and always the same ambivalent feelings.
Food is far from being excellent yet is not too bad.
Half of the staff is impeccable yet the receptionist/manager lady is extremely rude at first and waiters forget to welcome you but finally end up doing a good job.
The view is absolutely breathtaking no discussion.
In other words, this place would require consistent effort to get impeccable service and it would be a 5 stars.
Incredible atmosphere. Unbelievable views. I did not expect the food to be good however it was really amazing. The Old Bay Chips were crispy, swordfish with mango salsa and rice was great and my husband's brisket sandwich was amazing. So glad we made these reservations.
We went for cocktails and dinner before a show. It was fun to sit and look out over Times Square. It was my daughters birthday so it felt festive and is an easy walk to theaters. They had a small but nice section of apps and light dinner to chose from. It was just right for a low key way, fun to enjoy the excitement of Times Square.
Food was average and the service was poor. Took forever to get our drink order, then took a very long time for the waiter to come back and take our food order. The entire time he acted like we were inconveniencing him. Though I had a reservation for 5, they put us at a 4 person table and added a 5th chair, so it was very uncomfortable and not enough room for us and the food and drink. The views of Time Square are great and the place was quiet enough to have a conversation without raising our voices.
Note: if you have a large party, they will not split the bill for you, and will only take up to two credit cards. Luckily, our group had enough cash on us to take care of it.
Crazy traffic made us late for our reservation, but when I called they said they would be happy to hold our table. Running late meant that we had less time to eat. When I explained to our server that we were going to a show, he was happy to get our order right in and let the kitchen know of our time constraint. Our food came in 15 minutes. It was well prepared and delicious. The view of Time Square is fabulous and offers a great way to get excited for a night in the big apple!
Great view of Times Square. Food was enjoyable. Service seemed a little disorganized in general, from confusing check-in, delay getting food and drinks. We were able to make reservations for 12:00 PM on open table even though the bar website says 12:30 opening. The hotel and bar even confirmed that they open at 12:00 PM when I called, but this was wrong. They turned us away when we arrived saying that they don't open until 12:30 PM. We waited 30 minutes for them to open. On top of that it seemed they sat people in random order whether or not they had reservations. Fortunately we were still able to get a beautiful window seat. Overall though, it was a good experience. Our waitress was very friendly and responsive. Food was pretty good.
Oustanding view and location. Service could be improved, we were 7 people packed on a table of 4 and were told that it was the rule. Not all the plates arrived at the same time, more than 5 mn waiting for the latest and despite portion were small, food was good.
