We chose the R Lounge to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We informed the restaurant of our special occasion when making the reservation. The staff did nothing to make our evening special. No one even said "Happy Anniversary" to us. The waiters were unattentive and unfriendly. The food selection was poor and overpriced. It is clear that the scenic view is the only thing enjoyable at the R Lounge.

When we made the reservation, we were not asked if we wanted a window seating, which is precisely why we went there.
When we arrived, the host was super rude and did not even seat us, he tried to put us in a table in the middle and when we asked for the empty window table, he basically told us to go there and didn't even write down our reservation. He didn't even call for a waiter to attend us

We later had to get up to ask the bartender ourselves to send a waiter and he finally came (very pleasant guy) the only thing good about our dinner was the steak...

I got an email from the open table in the middle of our dinner, claiming we did not show up for dinner, which made me very mad considering the meal was pricey and the experience was not worth it. Needless to say, we are not coming back.

The views are spectacular and out of city guests appreciate them. The food is quite good but the service is very spotty. Bayou can be attended to multiple times in a short period and then ignored at length.

The filet was good though ordered medium and delivered medium well. The lobster roll was interesting. The shrimp were spot on.

Good for impressing visitors but the tourist vibe is high.

The view was beautiful and as well the restaurant. But the service was such a disappointment. They were rude and not helpful. When I asked a question he was very discourteous. He acted like he didn’t want to help me. I felt awkward. Made me not want to go there. It was my first time as well and hoped for a better experience. The food was delicious.

Really poor service. I booked a table a week ahead. Two hours before they call to cancel my reservation due to a private event. They most have known that earlier than two hours before.The head waiter offered to contact me for a new reservation,but he never came back to me.

It was fine. A friend recommended it to us and we made our reservation a month in advance. We arrived to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday and had a fabulous seat at the window with a great view. We ordered dinner and a cherry Pepsi for the kids. Our server was nice and had the drinks made for them, but he kept bringing them drinks (2 at a time) even thought we didn't ask for them. We finally left the full ones on the table and I asked for waters. When we got the bill, they had charged us 9.00 per drink for 5 Pepsi's that we didn't order. The manager said that he would pay for us to have breakfast the following morning but we were flying out so it didn't work out. We weren't looking to get anything free (and we didn't), but the whole dinner was a little disappointing. Overall, the shrimp plate was small, the burger and chips were pretty good and the pizza was just ok. So....the view was great, but that's about it.

Super cool spot with floor to ceiling windows with a view of all the bright lights in Times Square. Service was a little slower that preferred, but the ambiance made up for it - highly recommend!!

I booked a table for a birthday 30 days in advance for 2 people. I requested a window table. We arrived the man on the desk was rude I advised I had a reservation for a window seat he sat us at a long table for about 6 people but only 2 chairs. There was no reservation sign on the table so it was obvious it was not our table. 2 tables of 2 left at the window when I asked him if we could move he said "no". His manner was rude and obnoxious. We then sat there for 15 mins waiting for drinks. We were to have food but we left. Very disappointing experience which was planned for a birthday.

The view of Times Square was absolutely amazing. We loved it. We only had appetizers and drinks, but the food was delicious. Loved the pretzels and wings...great taste. The only complaint we have is the service was less than desirable. We would make eye contact and ask for something and felt ignored. It is not a huge place, so they could not be that overwhelmed, so that was frustrating. But it did not ruin the night, still had a great time and would recommend it.

This is one of those places that is a "must do" in Times Square. Make sure you get a reservation in advance and ask for a window seat. This is a great place to have cocktail before or after a show. You are about 10 floors up looking right out on Times Square. Really fun tourist stop! I would go for the drink and the view. We were hungry and had the wings and a burger. They were fine, but you could get that anywhere.

The food was amazing the service was absolutely horrible. From the way we were talked to at the front, to our waitress. We waited almost 30 minutes for our check then another 15 before it came back. We were a party of 10, as an apology for the wait they gave us 2 free desserts. We saw our waitress MAYBE 3 times and we felt any of our requests were more of an inconvenience to her than anything. However, the food is wonderful and the view was MIND BLOWING. If they just hired people who actually bring joy to the incredible experience that the lounge could be capable of it would be unbeatable.

Meine Schwester und ich haben hier einen Tisch reserviert um etwas zu essen und zu trinken bevor wir zu einer Broadway Show gegangen sind. Die R Lounge ist einfach super! Den Tipp haben wir aus unserem Reiseführer. Von der Lounge aus hat man einen perfekten und einmaligen Blick auf den Times Square! Die Bedienung war super freundlich und die Tacos einfach nur spitze! Sehr zu empfehlen für einen besonderen Anlass :)

Best affordable restaurant in NYC with an elevated view of Times Square. It wasn't crowded and the food was fresh and tasty. 3 of us had dinner for under $100 including tip. Service was great... views were fantastic, especially for someone who had never been to NYC.

We’ve been to the R Lounge on many occasions and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately , our visit this past weekend was not a wonderful time at all! I was in NYC for a weekend with my daughter and after seeing 2 amazing Broadway shows thought the perfect end would be to celebrate the weekend at the R Lounge. We made reservations for 11:15 pm and we’re seated right away at a great table overlooking Times Square. After 20 minutes of 3 servers passing us by and completely ignoring us I asked two of them if they could take our order and one acted like he didn’t understand my question and just walked away and the other one said he’d tell someone else. He never did! 5 minutes later we walked out extremely disappointed! Headed to Marriott Marquis and had a lovely time! Same view..... much better service!
Won’t be returning to R Lounge on our next visit in May!

Best view of time square. Nice quiet break from vacation. Highly recommend reservations. We went at 5pm and was filling up as we left. The menu I viewed on yelp etc. was not menu being offered. Server said to check actual website they update. At the time I was there more the older crowd. I was traveling with 2 kids and felt a little out of place. This restaurant is more upscale night time dining. We had pizza and it was delicious. Would definitely go back.
