So I went the other night with 3 other people due to a voucher from Living Social. The hostess at the door did not have a warm greeting in her body but I gave her the benefit of the doubt since she was standing outside in the rain and everyone has a bad day. But for an "upscale" place as such, this should not have been the case. We get in and we're seated. The waitress was very nice, the food was good, the drinks were a bit on the watery side but nothing to really complain about until...I do not care for a unisex bathroom! Then towards the end, the waitress started to kind of rush us because the kitchen was closing. This establishment closes at 4 am, if your kitchen closes early, I would think that you would advertise that along with your restaurant hours. All we had to pay was $41. But it was suggested to give the waitress at $60 tip. I tip every where I go. I even tip bathroom attendants. BUT character also plays a part in how much I tip you. I do not like for people to TELL me how much I HAVE to give them. Such a tun off. Long story short, she had her arrogant manager come to us and ask why we didn't tip her more?! There is a certain way you approach your customers. ESPECIALLY if we are polite and giving an generous amount of our money to your establishment. But honestly. what can you expect? It is a Jay-Z establishment so I am not surprised at all. After that, the waitress could not even look at us.

A few weeks ago, I was wandering around the streets of NYC looking for something to do. Typical when there is so much to do here anyways. As I was strolling through flatiron, I stepped into what I thought was some exclusive restaurant but to my surprise I was greeted by a very friendly hostess who asked if I had reservations. Assuming I was going to be turned away when I replied with a no, she invited me in for a tour. Considering I had nothing to do I agreed. A waitress approached me and asked me if this was my first time there which it was. She then gave me what seemed like a history lesson but an interesting one to say the least. After the tour, which was full of fun facts (sports memorabilia) and laughs (waitress was personable and funny with big hair (thumps up)). I then sat at the bar where the bartender knew every single cocktail and could pair with my meal. Try the 40/40 wings without a doubt! I felt like I was at home. But my home was a luxurious mansion. Needless to say, the place has grown on me not to mention Jay himself has been in a couple times that I've been in there! But I give it to the staff. I see them all the time. Being in a big city all alone doesnt hurt having this. So if youre looking for a place to kill time, eat, meet, lounge def check it out!

I was there last night with some other mgr friends and first of all I stated to the server it was their first time as I had been there years prior and recieved fairly good service so I decided to return. The doorman asked us if we wanted a "quicktour"? I said "sure"! I called that morning and was told happy hour was from 5-7, as stated on the website- I get there and they said it was discontinued!! SMH- Then REMOVE it and dont give false information!! In addition our server was really NEW- so if he knew anything at all I'll eat my hat! He tried but he offered nothing at all to remedy the situation. The manager came to the table in an effort to smoothe things over but his level of arrogance preceded him. In the end the happy hour prices were honored after I had to go through the bill and make the corrections- SMDH! I sat at the table in complete astonishment but never losing my sang-froid. Youd think in good taste the mgr of server wouldve at least bought me a drink for the confusion in good taste- but to no avail!... I expected better from Mr. Beyonce- but then again- Its like that sometimes.... SMH- Never again on my dime. Do me a favor and save your own money- since I cant get mine back.

my girl threw a bachelorette party at the 40/40 club, and it was ridiculous!, we had a private VIP room, i think the Jay-Z room, and they really know how to party! my bride-to-be had an amazing night, so did all of us. whoever did the decorations did a beautiful job and whoever ordered the dancer, should be promoted ASAP lol without a doubt, ill be back as soon as they re-open! i think theyre renovating for the summer, dont quote me tho!

Im a young college kid from rhode island and been living in the city for a couple months, and wanted to find a place to chill, get a drink, maybe eat, but definitely watch the football game. I had no one to go with so i just went by myself which turned out to be totally fine. first off the bartender was THE MAN! it wasnt packed but it was also like a tuesday night or something...but there were some people watchin at the bar. all the the tables were taken but it wasn't too busy that the bartender couldn't make small talk. he introduced me to a few other guys at the bar and we all had a great time watching a great game. and the drinks he made were ridiculous, then he told me about a burger thats not even on the menu, which turned out to be cheaper and the most delicious burger Ive had since I moved here. Then i went back a month later or so and he was working again, he recognized me right away by name, and took care of me. even introducing me to some girls there. im actually dating one still. lol...but that place is awesome, when its busy or not. its like olive garden, when you're there, you're family haha

Okay, nobody in NY knows where this club is. You have to get the exact address and tell the cab driver. Once you show up... no line to get in. You get inside and immediately they try and sell you on private rooms, bottle service, and tables (all 700-800 dollars minimum). After you tell them no, you get treated like crap. You still end up spending almost $60 dollars for 2 beers, and 2 drinks and then they throw the tip on themselves! We had this happen for about 3 rounds and decided enough is enough... we'll tip when we want, and when their service calls for it. Not to mention, there was no alcohol in the drinks. Watered down like crazy. The place is packed, and there's nowhere to sit. Everyone just stands around staring at good looking girls. You go upstairs and you have to push your way to the coat check. Then the bathrooms smell. You go to leave and they take your coat tickets and tell you they cant find your coats (trying to get you to stay and spend $). We had to get our entire party to explain their coats and what was in their pockets and argue until they finally gave us coats. Music is great, club is fancy looking, nice setup. Would never go back unless they cut their prices nearly in half, and fired the entire staff. By the way there is a cover charge no matter what you read on the website. (unless they're completely empty)

If you want to be hassled, deceived and overcharged then this the place for you. We made reservations for a table for my brother's 21st Birthday in advance for 11/15/08. I received email confirmation that a table would be reserved with no minimum or bottle service. However, when we arrived a number of servers and staff informed us that there is no such thing as reservations, a $60 dollar per person minimum or no table. The place was not packed when we arrived. We were led to the back near the re-entry area where we had to argue with a few of the wait staff in order to be seen by a manager. 15 minutes later the manager, accommodated us by putting us in the ESPN room with no minimum. Although this was great, we still got screwed. My guest arrived and had to pay $10 dollars each to get in the door when it is clearly stated in the FAQ's on their website that there is no cover.
