This place is amazing!! You have the most perfect view of Times Square, the cocktails are reasonably priced ($15) and the food bites are delicious! The only reason it's not 5* is because the service was appalling. Our server was miserable the whole time and it took ages to order another drink (despite it being rather quiet). Other than that,...

Travelled to NYC to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. We booked a window seat table at this restaurant months in advance based on trip advisor reviews. Unfortunately, due to a mix up over a private booking our reservation had to be moved to another night. Once in NYC our plans for the day changed so we went to the venue... More

This restaurant/bar is amazing for it's views of Times Square. You could sit here all night and not get bored. It has a great cocktail and drinks menu. The only thing letting it down is the lack of variety in food although the food they do have is beautiful the beef literally melts in your mouth.

This is one of the greatest places to sit back, watch the world go by, and have a drink. The large windows overlook all of Times Sq, and the service has always been good.

Stayed at the hotel, but only ate once in the restaurant. Very good food, but wine was expensive at $16 a glass for Pinot

I was a part of a private customer event at R Lounge inside the Renaissance Times Square and the views are just amazing. Floor to ceiling windows on an upper floor create a unique vantage point to take in the craziness of Times Square. What set out event apart was the great staff of the Renaissance Hotel. They were terrific... More

I can only say AMAZING. The drinks are so awesome and so reasonably priced that you could go on for many rounds without even thinking. I like trying cocktails and Uptowner was totally worth it. The place is big and has pretty amazing seating, cozy and comfy. You can sink in those large chairs and just enjoy your evening. Very... More

The view is second to none. There are a few tables right in the front so you have an unobstructed view. This restaurant is IN the Renaissance hotel. The menu is very limited with only a half dozen entrée choices. The largest part of the menu is the drinks, I guess due to the location. The Menu selections we did... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
