Went to restaurant above for lunch during restaurant week. The staff didn't know if they were a part of restaurant week and were confused for a good 5 minutes. We were escorted to a lounge when we were clearly there for a meal and was told we would be served by the bartender. We sat there for about 20 minutes... More

I met some business colleagues for breakfast at Above, since I was staying at the Hilton. The food was good, but the server was slow and forgot our bacon orders. We had a window table, and the view was very nice.

We keep returning to this lovely spot. The new renovation is spectacular - much cozier and better lit. Also the bar's new format makes it less noisier. The food is always excellent but the best part of our visit is our waiter, Flakron. When he sees us walk in he is already ordering our drinks, which he always remembers. He... More

The service and food were below average. Waitstaff are not trained properly and really make for an unpleasant dining experience.

As a subscriber to Roundabout Theater we often have to have lunch in the middle of the hurly-burly of Times Square. Fortunately, we discovered Above located in the tiny Hilton Hotel on W. 42 Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue. The dining room is generally quiet at lunch time on matinee days, the food is creative and excellent and the... More

The food is quite good, OK to bring kids (they have a children's menu) and they will get you out on time!

Two couples, one with a train to catch, made a reservation for 5:30, when Above opens. The tables were ready for diners, but the staff wasn't. We told our server immediately that we had a time constraint, but it still took him 20 minutes to bring salads/soups, even though only one other table was occupied. The wine we chose caused... More

Excellent place for a drink after a long day with great bar food and great coffee in the morning. The breakfast buffet has everything you need.

Was staying at the hotel on business, got in after a long day of travel so just wanted something convenient. But this was very disappointing. In the hotel lobby, not the view advertised, very uncomfortable banquette, totally uninterested servers, and over-done blob of pasta with sauce accompanied by dry bread. The butter was the best part of the meal!
