    Very beautiful place with amazing drinks. Wish it was a spot where more people would dance at (maybe I just went on the wrong day), but I would definitely go again.

    It's a club . . Don't go for food or good service. We had a range of ok lite bites . . . Service was painfully slow and chaotic . . . Signature drinks were good

    Waiter was wonderfully kind and friendly. The host with the blonde curly hair and thick accent was very rude and not helpful. As a woman of color, I felt disrespected and unwelcome. She was targeting my race and even made fun of my names multiple times.

    The music was too loud. It was difficult to carry on a conversation. My throat is sore from shouting. The manager needs to decide if this is a quiet cocktail bar or a night club/lounge, it can’t be both. Right now it’s neither. The drinks are great but the food is mediocre. Our hostess and server were both excellent.

    Went early in the night - zero attitudes and a warm welcome; great small bites; perfect view; and sure a bit pricey cocktails but they went down easy and were very good. This is a return spot!

    I took my crew, all out-of-towners, models and actresses who were here for the auto show, to Ascent, for the vibe, the cocktails and the view. It did not disappoint. Traveling from all over the US, (LA, Miami, Texas, and Michigan), and Germany, they wanted a place to ring in our last night in NYC together. Being a native New Yorker myself, and having frequented Ascent Lounge before, I knew this was the perfect spot for that scene. The drinks and food were on point, the service was attentive and lovely, and everyone had a blast. Thanks so much!

    Ascent is a beautiful space to enjoy music and drinks with friends. This isn’t a bar, this a lounge with above average drink prices to identify it as a destination location with a level of expected sophistication. Feel free to dress up. Settle in and enjoy a tasty craft concoction, and sample a menu of tasty bites that includes wagyu sliders, brussel sprouts, and Asian-influenced chicken skewers. The views of Columbus Circle, and the night sky, are memorable.

    Rude hostess. Had the unique ability to make me feel unwelcome. Upon sitting down at table, was so disturbed, decided to leave. Overall terrible experience and will never revisit. Management needs to invest more time in training and hiring skilled employees. (Note: in order to provide this commentary, I had to rate the food…which I gave the benefit of doubt with a 4 star rating)

    We went to check it out and see what it’s about. The drinks were very very cute and the food was pretty decent. It’s a beautiful BEAUTIFUL big space. You can definitely find lots of big spenders there but it is not my cup of tea. Maybe after a certain time it gets better but It is definitely very upscale. It’s not bad at all it’s beautiful and everything was up to par, the service was great and even checking out was pristine but it is definitely upscale.

    Date and I were in a gown and tux grabbing drinks and light bites before the Opera. Were seated and ignored for 35 minutes and I had to get up and walk across the lounge to the bar to grab myself and date a glass of water because we were both parched. Assumed a server or manger would see me walk across the room to grab a drink and send a waitress over to check on us but no. So we eventually still had to wave down a random server to explain we were thirsty and had no clue who our server was. First round of drinks was on the house due to this but someone should have wondered why a woman who was sitting with an empty table top before her had to walk to the bar to get WATER after sitting for 35 minutes. I might add that all the tables around us were being diligently serviced and all the servers were quite busy not meeting our befuddled gazes as we watched them rush about and around us. Makes one wonder what it was about us and our difference from the rest of the homogenous patrons.
