I took my boyfriend there to celebrate his birthday and I am so happy with my choice. The staff were so nice and professional, foods were delicious, the view was amazing and in general there was romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended!

The view is amazing! To have Times Square in the background is the best thing however we had great waiters looking after us and lovely food and cocktails which was reasonably priced for the location. Cheesecake was boom!

I went there for my girlfriends birthday. I had a reservation and called twice to confirm it, and asking if I could get a table in the window, to what they said yes. Once I arrived, the host was really rude, just throwing the Menus on the table, and not giving us the table next to the window, that was free. After some minutes I went to ask him if we could sit in that table, and he ignored me and started a phone call! The table was free during our entire dinner. We weren’t finished with our food, and the waitress came to ask if we were done. I am really disappointed with the service of this restaurant. How is it possible that with such a nice place and view, the administration isn’t able to hire people fit for the job. I used to recommend this place friends and clients, but this is never going to happen again.

We love this bar and it’s view. They close early, for a bar, so the view and the vibe are short lived.

I had requested a window table as it was for my boyfriends 40th and they accommodated. We got a stunning table and we both sat staring at the lights of Times Square. They food was lovely. Not a massive choice but we did only really go there for the view. Very relaxing evening.

The food was a little salty and the bar was behind on drink orders. However, the staff spoiled my children with surprise stuffed animals and spoiled my husband for his birthday! They went above in service for sure. Not sure the meal and one drink each for a family of four was worth the $200, but overall it was a great time and we would go back and just order from the appetizer menu. The view of Times Square was wonderful. Thank you R Lounge for fantastic service!!

I was recommended to go here for the views by a friend who has visited multiple times. I'd booked a month before our trip to New York and specifically asked for a window table. When I arrived I asked the hostess again if we could be seated by a window. She said that they were too busy and there was nothing free so we were seated at a table furthest from the window. 2-3 minutes after we were seated 2 tables became available by the window. I waited for a further 20 minutes expecting these tables to be taken but they were not. I asked the hostess again if we could move as we had not yet ordered anything (not even drinks). She said that now we had been seated we could not be moved. We waited a further 15-20 minutes until those tables were then filled with two families. Shortly afterwards a further 3 window tables became available and there were 6 empty tables in total in the restaurant including these empty window tables. My feeling is that the hostess simply disliked the look of us and made our visit very uncomfortable and disappointing. I understand a window seat cannot be guaranteed, but we were there first and we were very polite in our request. I certainly won't be recommending the R Lounge because the food and service was poor. Go there for a drink, but don't bother with food. You will be very disappointed as they are small portions and not overly exciting dishes. I left hungry, unsatisfied and the hostess should re-evaluate the way she rudely treats guests. I was shocked, this was the worst service I received in New York.

The menu is quite limited and the food was pretty average. The service was efficient enough but the waiting staff were very unfriendly and clearly didn’t want to be there. The view over Times Square is good but not good enough to offset the mediocre food and surly staff. Very disappointing.

Made 5pm reservations for 1st Wedding Anniversary and my usually moderate expectations were greatly exceeded, from the warm greeting upon entering the hotel, to the beauty of the lounge and restaurant area, to the incredible view of Times Square. My wife was "Wowed" and in the end, that's all that matters. Service was great, our waiter "Mike" was extremely courteous and attentive. We had drinks, ate a wonderful dinner, then left to see Lion King. The "R Lounge" was an amazing starter to a perfect evening. Thank you so much, and we will be back.

Had an amazing anniversary celebration here. My husband was super surprised to see the amazing view of the center of Manhattan. I had made a reservation and asked for window seats with a nice birthday dessert 3 days prior. When I got there, they gave us the best seats in the restaurant (By the window overlooking the center of Time Square). We had a few drinks and ate a panini and left. We just came for drinks and the view. In the end, they brought us a cheesecake with 3 candles (1 for each year of marriage)
Service was ok, we had to flag down the waiter a couple of times and waited a while just to pay but that's it. I would definitely come again!

I planned a bachelorette party dinner here and had such an amazing time!! Our appetizers were called in ahead of time and at our table within minutes of arriving. The food was phenomenal and our server was so sweet and on top of everything. Atmosphere and ambience of being in the center of Times Square with such a great view was outstanding !! I can’t wait to come back for another party. :)

This is a fun spot for a great view of Times Square as you have a drink or dine. However, the view is the best part. We only ordered margaritas, which were ok, and when I made a reservation for 2, I specifically asked for a low table (for wheelchair access) close to the windows. When we arrived, we were not seated at a window table. When I asked if we could be seated at an open window table, the host said, "sorry, that table is reserved for a party of 4." The thing was, he placed us at a table for 4 also. Additionally, the party of 4 did not even arrive until we were leaving, so we definitely could have sat there. The location is what makes the experience.

I’ve been in New York for years and it was the worst service I had.
Firstly, I with my parents had a reservation at 6:15pm, Mar 29 2019, it’s the first time my parents have been to this restaurant, so I asked waiter a table by the window to the time square. We’ve not got that even if there had an available one. The waiter promised us would change to it. But after nearly 15 min later, there was someone took that available table, I asked the waiter to change the seat again, he promised us a table near the first one. We waited until after about 1 hour we’ve done our meal (during that time the seat was always available), the waiter said we could have that seat for only 20 min, and told us the reason why we could not sit there was we did not have a reservation. But I really had one and he had asked me when we came! The waiter did not do what he promised twice with a bad excuse!
Additionally, during the time we had our meal, the waiter asked us twice if we were done, even if we had half of food left. I asked him two cups of hot tea when the second time he came to us for asking, he just went away ignoring our request after I told him we were not done!
What happened to the restaurant, I can not believe my experience. I will never come again and will not suggest it to any of my friends.

Great view! The food is kinda me, basic bar food stuff, but we went for a teenagers bday who was pleased with the food and ambiance! Our server was friendly as well and even took pictures for us with the view of Times Square and charged our dying phones for us! Overall it was a fun place to people watch and hang out! We went to a show after dinner and it is very close to all the theaters, so a great place to visit before a show!
