The hostess was accommodating when it came time to seat us. The first table she sat us at was uncomfortable and I asked to sit a more secluded area. Then she tried another table and that still wasn’t comfortable. I still asked for that secluded table but she said it has to be set. So we waited and she was kind enough to seat us by the window where we can see the view of the city. I really appreciate her efforts and I am very thankful for her. I wish I knew her name. Our sever was great. Even though they didn’t have cucumber Martini on the drink menu he made sure that we got what we asked for and that completed our night. I love R2L every time I go.

Everything we expected! Food was awesome and very reasonably priced. Ambiance was great! Our server Mark was great as well, personable and knew his job and the menu. We would definitely be back! Thank you for making our experience special.

Great service from Mark, food was excellent, apologized for the delay in bringing out dessert but we were having such a great time we didn’t even notice the wait. He brought out two glasses of champagne for me and my girlfriend celebrating our anniversary. Definitely recommend the lobster Mac and cheese and the braised short ribs. Fantastic experience all around. Can’t wait to go back!

I don’t think it was worth the hype. Although they expected prepaid service, the wait time was unreasonable. For. 9:39pm reservation made and paid for in advance, it took more than 30 minutes to seat us and another 45 minutes to bring out the damn BREAD!

We went for restaurant week and had never been here before. Unfortunately, we were half hour late just because traffic was so bad. When we got there they did explain the 15 minute late grace period. Which we understood because we're already half hour late. They said it could be up to an hour. Little did I know the couple we were with talk to them you see I lost my dear beloved brother 2 weeks ago and was having a rough time and they said was there any way we could get in now and explain my story and they gave us a beautiful table with a beautiful view and right there they set the mood for how much I liked this place. Thank you R2L for your understanding. The food was fantastic especially the fried bacon appetizer. Because it was restaurant week got to pick 3 different courses. Our portions were not small because of restaurant week everything delicious. I definitely will be back again. I'm hoping to make a girls weekend with my 3 daughters. Very trendy high end, lots of energy type atmosphere. Almost makes you feel like you're in the heart of New York City and the view is breathtaking a must go to...

Visited during restaurant week. The service and food was very good. Would have loved to sit by the window to see the magnificent views of the city. Hoping to book a window table and experience the full dinner menu. Will recommend to others!

The staff was very friendly. Our server Jameer was pleasant and courteous. The view was amazing although we didn't get a window seat. The food was good for the price since it was restaurant week. We will definitely go back.

The food was fine, but not outstanding. No subtle flavors or really special sauces. Nothing extraordinary. Portions were fine, not too small. Service was attentive, except when our waiter disappeared for a while. Had a nice view of the city at night from the 37th floor. There were mostly booth tables along the windows, but we were seated in the middle or center, a few tables away from the windows so we couldn't see well. Don't know if you can request to be seated at windows. Probably wouldn't return.

I was pleasantly surprised because I read a few reviews where people mentioned that the food was just ok and me being a very picky eater, I thought I would be disappointed but the food was very good and fresh. I would definitely go back.

Yes, I would. R2L is worth it just for the view alone. The view is spectacular. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious as well. I would recommend very highly.

I found R2L a lovely space. Large bar with spectacular views. Excellent cocktails. Very attentive service. The food was good but not outstanding. My pork was flavorful but tough. Sides were good and dessert was quite good. I’d go back for happy hour — a drink and the view.

We enjoyed our dinner at R2L during restaurant week. It was fun to try somewhere we hadn’t been before. We were seated in an area without a view and told we would have had to give an additional deposit in order to secure a window seat. We were already annoyed at having to give a deposit at all. The food was nice though not perfect. The service was friendly but rushed. Cocktails were over sweet.

It was misleading that for $175 reservation, I thought we had reserved a window table, but it was because our party was 6 or more. This should be clearer.

Incredible service and ambiance. Classy and professional service. Best view from any restaurant. This is what you are paying for though. Food was okay, the portions for the main course were hilariously small. I'm not sure if it was just because it was restaurant week, but the "Sliced Filet and pulled short rib & potatoes" was two bites of steak (about a square inch each) and maybe 3-4 mini potatoes cut up in fourths.

Staff was so nice and helpful. Kitchen tailored to my dairy and soy allergy, no problem. Handcrafted cocktails were delicious, as was the food. The scenery outside is beautiful. Would go again.

With the new 4 seasons in town, R2L is now, eh just okay. If you are not by a window, it's not worth it.
