The views from this lounge are probably unparalleled. The treetops of CP and the 5th Ave residential building across the way somehow created a soothing effect. I have been here a bunch of times for drinks, an app. Last week, I decided to have two business meetings there mid afternoon thinking it would be quiet. It was not at all.... More

Afternoon tea is always fun. The Mandarin does an excellent job. Great variety of food and teas. As good as the Plaza

The main attraction of the Lobby Lounge is the view over Central Park and the City. The stuff is professional but friendly and the service is impeccable. The food is as good as one can get in a Lobby Lounge, a near perfect imitation of British afternoon tea service is also on the menu. An excellent place to relax over... More

Everything about afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental was amazing. Superb service, excellent tea, scrumptious food, and a world-class view. A special occasion location or a place for intimate conversation--it will not disappoint.

My husband and I have been to about 40 high teas or afternoon teas all over the world during the last 5 years. We have always enjoyed the ones in the luxury hotels in the bigger cities the best. When we researched teas in NYC, we saw the Mandarine Oriental Lobby Bar was the number one tea in the City.... More

Reading the other reviews on this site I find it hard to believe I had the poor experience which I did have, but we did and it was diabolical. We visited for a drink on Sunday 14th September and were hugely impressed by the setting having read the recommendation in the inflight KLM magazine. We walked past reception and waited... More

Took my two grown nieces to MO lounge for cocktails and cheese plate. Our server was perfect. Gave us time to enjoy our time together. Now they will bring friends to this lovely spot.

We love this place. Great food, service and incredible view of Central Park and Columbus circle. Anyone can sit at the cafe and enjoy the view. Every time the service has been great. Treat yourself.
