It was very unorganized, waitress forgot my drink for like 20 minutes on the bar. I knew it was mine but she kept passing by it. Music was too soft and pop.

Overall I love the ambiance. I was disappointed because I thought I was going to be able to eat but the kitchen was close, but after looking at the menu which just included appetizers I wasn’t disappointed plus the drinks compensated for the food. I understand that we are in a pandemic but if you are going to serve just appetizers there should be more of a variety.

48 Lounge is always my go-to spot for client meetings, particularly if the client is from out-of-town because it shows the vibe, pulse and ambiance of NYC. Fantastic wait staff and hosts/hostesses. Everything is top notch and all patrons are treated like celebs.

Worst service I’ve ever received. Ordered food and 45 minutes after ordering they told us one of the things we ordered (literally half of what we ordered for dinner) wasn’t available. We waited for an hour after ordering and our food hadn’t come so decided to leave because we no longer had time to order again and wait another hour for the food. DO NOT GO THERE!

Monica was our server and she was AMAZING. She was attentive and warm. Our entire group wanted for nothing the entire time and I would go back anytime. Our entire group is in the service industry and we have nothing but great things to say about Monica! Our bus boy Anthony was very good too!

It is still the same way this past weekend that it was two years ago. Making a reservation especially on such short notice makes it even better. It has the grown and sexy vibes and even intimate feel. The people are friendly and it is lively. I will be coming back again.

The ambiance is absolutely amazing, but the service was horrible especially since there was no one else there when we arrived due to the early timing.

Although I loved the place.... we stayed until around 1 AM and my group was the only one group at the venue and a few people at the bar... not a lively space at all... they should consider advertising more as the lounge itself is beautiful

Beautiful venue with delicious tapas. Drinks are pricey but that was expected. I did reserve a hightop without knowing they didn’t have seats. The manager was nice enough to give us three barstools while we were there.

Overall it was a good experience. Sometimes the music was great, other times I've never heard of the music. It was my suggestion to go there because the music was good the first time..... not so much this time. But very helpful staff, and they are super friendly.....

we were seated right next to loudspeakers - there was a weak attempt to move us but it didnt happen. It also took our servers 25 mins to ask us for drinks which is unacceptable.

On the plus side we did like the music overall.

It was my birthday . We were over charged and the waiter ran out the venue to follow us and ask for a tip. Very unprofessional. The dj and the host were the only good thing that night. Never again!! And i would never recommend this venue.
