                                                  We were in NYC for the day, and when the Midtown crowd hit an all time high around dinner, we had lost our patience. Thankfully, we had 48 to escape to and relax. The music is loud enough to not overhear others conversations while still being able to speak to each other without yelling. We ordered 2 of the smoky old fashioned, a mother of dragons, and a Moscow mule. We also had chicken sliders, which were more like bites but delicious all the same, and the Mac and cheese bites. Everything was absolutely amazing. Our server was the highlight though. Sam was so attentive, knowledgeable, and gracefully friendly. It really tied the experience together to be treated like regulars!

                                                  white wine was overpriced and not very chilled. smoked whiskey was not up to par. 2 out of the 3 small bites were served cold (possibly because they were served all at the same time).

                                                  I will say 48 Lounge is a sexy, upscale, and sophisticated place with great service and ambiance. It’s great for cocktails, dinner or a nice date night. Definitely a place to go.

                                                  Made reservations for someone’s birthday and still had to wait 1.5 hours to be seated. No one made up for the inconvenience and also kept dodging us after we continually had to ask what’s going on with our reservations. They sat us with another group of people. Smh

                                                  This was my first time at 48 Lounge. I had a seated table reservation for two. The good news is that we were seated on time by a friendly hostess. We each ordered a drink. It took 30 minutes from the time we ordered to when my date got her drink. It took 45 minutes until I got my drink. They didnt even bring them out together. When I requested the check, it took 15 minutes just to get the check. The place was semi busy but there was no reason it should have taken so long. It was also incredibly loud.

                                                  48 Lounge is a very attractive cocktail lounge with creative appetizers. The service was quick and food prompt. We were there at 5pm and it was very quiet. I'm not sure when the crowd would pick up. The drinks were a bit expensive for what they were.

                                                  I was planning a birthday dinner for my wife , and the whole week before the general manager, Anthony and I were in communication back and fourth throughout the week. He was so understanding, so patient, so calm, and reasonable. I cannot speak enough about how happy I am about our experience at the 48 Lounge. 10 out of 10 experience. We felt the love the whole time . Would definitely be coming back .

                                                  Made an 11pm reservation. Restaurant website and Open Table both say they are open until midnight or 2:30am. We went on a Thursday night. Got there a little before our reservation and were informed they close at 10:00. Then got a note from open table that we missed our reservation. The food and atmosphere look great but won’t try to return as I’m not sure I can trust the reservation system.

                                                  This was my first time coming here and I had an amazing time. I celebrated my birthday here and the energy, customer service, food, drinks and everything overall was on point. I have told all my friends about this place! That's how great my experience was and as such I'll definitely be revisiting.

                                                  The security guard was a real a-hole. He gave my friend a problem & made her feel stupid when she was entering to come to our reserved table. Then, he made a remark about me not being able to sit on my husbands lap on one of the chairs even though I sat down for about 15 secs & got back up meanwhile there were other couples around me sitting on top of each other - but they were skinny & im a bit heavier so he really shot my self esteem & I just had a baby. My husband made a comment about us being singled out & the other couples not being talked to & the security guard just shrugged his shoulders like “whatever”. He was the skinny African American inside the club walking around. He really blew the mood & didn’t apologize for the inconvenience.

                                                  Our second time here, this time for my wife’s birthday. The staff really went out of their way to make it special for her. Bottle service (and they let her hold a sparkler), and then eventually they surprised us with birthday brownies. DJ is really good and it was super fun. Will definitely be back to celebrate the good times. Thanks all!

                                                  48 Lounge is a cool spot to go to. I went with a friend for a quick drink and just to catch up. Drinks, food and service was great BUT my biggest gripe is that it was the music was WAAAAY to loud to the point that I could barely have a decent conversation with my friend. I understand if it was at night but this was at 2:15p in the afternoon. Other than that I had a pretty good experience. I’d come back again….just lower the volume a little please for lunch ☺️

                                                  This was an amazing place to just chill and get a few drinks. I went with my friend and we were given a choice of where we preferred to sit, the menu was online and easily accessible, the food was amazing, drinks were tasty and strong BUT TASTED LIKE JUICE YUM (at least the ones I got🥰) and it was a very friendly environment. Definitely going again!

                                                  It was incredibly loud. The drinks were good and the service was decent. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The crowd was overwhelming and obnoxious. Many appeared to be too young to be customers. It’s not a classy adult environment. The music was terrible. Maybe it was the particular dj that night but I won’t bother going back
