Testimonials

  • Thank you and your entire staff for such a great party. I don’t think that I have ever received this many compliments for a party in my life. The food was exceptional, the service was outstanding, and the venue was supreme. Everyone from the young to the old (and that includes all of our senior partners) raved about the party.

    - Betsy Bookas, Cooper & Dunham LLP
  • Thank you, and your entire team, for your hospitality and excellent service last Thursday evening. The event served as a wonderful send off for my colleague Traci and everyone greatly enjoyed their experience at Lounge 48.

    - Christine Wheatley, The Clinton Foundation
  • The 48 Lounge team is undeniably the best in the business. A great time was had by all and the level of service, quality of food and drink, and warmth of the staff is unmatched. Thank you for making our annual holiday party a success once again. Best regards to all.

    - Vincent E. Silvestri, Chief Operating Officer, Rockefeller Group International, Inc.
  • Hands down, by far, the best holiday party we have ever had! Your staff was truly wonderful. Every server smiled and made eye contact as they passed hors d'oeuvres. They checked in with each guest to offer another drink if they didn't have one or were just about done with the one they had. The service was outstanding!

    - Alessandra Caputo, The Modern Restaurant
