“Breathtaking View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We treated us with an excellent dinner with an amazing view over Manhattan & Central Park. The restaurant is situatied on the 36th floor of the hotel. When the sun sets it gets even better. The food is good and light. The service personnel is very attentive and nice. It's the second time I've been there within a couple of years and I haven't changed my opinion!
No reservations for less than 6 people - first comes, first serves basis.

“Great View of Central Park & the New York Skyline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

A friend had suggested we have a glass of wine & enjoy the lights & view of New York. If you want a great view of Central Park & the New York Skyline none is a better view than the Lobby Lounge at the Mandarin Oriental in New York. The decor, atmosphere & cleanliness is first class. The food was surprisingly good for lounge food the Crisp And Spreads chipotle hummus and mango-ginger dip was amazing. We also had an Ahi tuna salad that was just OK. We were treated to a lightning storm over New York at night that was spectacular to watch. The service was less than exceptional although the hostess Christina was pleasant, polite & seated us in great seats promptly the servers were inattentive & absent. We didn't go for the food or the service so we were not disappointed with the experience and were mesmerized by the view

“Nice food, great views, wonderful ambience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Had left a meeting late and was recommened this place by one on the atendees. It is a stylish par and restaurant on the 36th floor of a building that also houses the Mandarin Hotel. The view are over Central Park and 60th, the food is oriental and wonderful and the service correct. If you wish to impress a newcomer to NY it the place.

“Awesome view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

We stopped here one afternoon to have a couple drinks & enjoy the view! We weren't sure about a dress-code and we were dressed in shorts and very casual. Seemed to be ok. We sat on a sofa next to a window and the views were of Central Park, Columbus Circle & some skyline of Manhattan! It was just like the photos on their website! 2 drinks were about $45 including tip, but worth it!
