Success! Thanks for posting your review of Hi-Life Restaurant & Lounge. You’ve done the world some good today.

so confused

I am shocked by most of these reviews. This was one of the first places I ate when I first moved to the upper east side. The dinners were mediocre at best and the drinks were so watered down and room temperature that we sent a few back. The only person who enjoyed their beverage ordered a guinness. In a bottle. I do not recommend this restaurant.

Good affordable fun

Hi Life is a great option on the Upper East Side for affordable food. A lot of groups eat here as its a nice space for a restaurant. Upon entering they have a nice lounge area where you can drink or hang while waiting for a table. Their bar has TV's in case you want to catch the game. Hi-Life's menu has amazing variety- they have great apps to start, sandwiches, pasta and sushi. Also, every night they have drink spec... view more

Great Night!

Stopped by last Thursday night with a few girlfriends and had a great time. Food, drinks and service was excellent. I didn't know Hi-life had a DJ on Thursdays....he played awesome music (cute too--lol). The friendly atmosphere makes it very inviting. Recommended to everyone!

Super Comfortable

What my boyfriend and I love about Hi-Life is the different invironments within the restaurant/lounge.\r Sometimes we sit in the window, other time we request a booth. The other night we met a group of friends in the lounge. There is just as much diversity in the menu with big plates and bowls for a real sit down dinner, or small plates and sushi for a lighter meal. And for the quality, great prices too!\r \r

Great Vibe...Needs more exposure!!!!

Went on a Thursday night...loads of fun. Great food, drinks were pretty good, service was pretty good, ladies were abundant. More impressing, the DJ was great (still rocks the turntables)...takes requests (request forms are handed out by waitresses)...overall, the vibe was very much there. However, with all this said, it was a tad empty for all it had to offer. Seems it can use more exposure/advertising. Just my take... view more

Very enjoyable!

Overall, a very pleasant surprise. My first instinct was that Hi Life would be trendy, as it seems to be one of the Upper East Side hotspots.\r However, my bunch and I were all impressed with the food, and the service was prompt and friendly. Very enjoyable!

Swanky but Down to Earth.

Hi Life is both swanky (with it's leather upholstery and booths and art -deco bar) and down to earth ( with good value for the dollar and friendly service).

Thanks for the memory!

I recently hosted a surprise birthday party at Hi Life for my boyfriend. There were supposed to be 10 of us and we ended up being 15. The staff was very accomodating of the last minute change during a very busy time. The food was great, and there was something for all of us from sushi to big steaks. I had a seared tuna that was incredible!

Hostess from Hell

Went there for breakfast on a weekend, hostess had a big attitude, gave us a horrible vibe right from the beginning, waiters and waitresses seemed like they could care less if we were enjoying our meal or not. Food was average diner food, and the bloody mary was intolerable(think tobasco with celery) NO reason to return with such a large selection of restaurants in the area.
