    Food was not good, drinks were not bad, got charged for shot that i was given on stage. 20 percent tip added automatically to bill, waitress came by twice for drinks, some of the queens could of danced more. Effort was lacking for some. Overall ok, was hoping it would amp up the party, it was meh overall. For NYC I thought i’d get more.

    Had so much fun! The food was fine. I had the Salmon, which was good. The veggies were a little salty. The salad was average-too much dressing. The dessert was fine. Service was fast. The best part about Lips is the show. That did not disappoint. The show was fun and hilarious. The show hostess, Blackie-O was fantastic. Would highly recommend this to anyone for a very fun night out!

    From making the reservation to the last goodbye.it was a warm and fun experience.. it is an intimate venue decorated in glittered up disco style . Very kitchie. We really loved it. People of all ages were there. The queens were taking food and drink orders and acting as hostesses. They graciously took pictures with all the guests. The show consisted of the girls singing and dancing. The food was good. We had a great time.

    From start to finish it was amazing - these folx KNOW how to put on a show. Wednesday nights Twisted Broadway with Heidi Heux was phenomenal, with all the girls pitching in to host and perform! Much love, respect and appreciation for Twiggy Malone, who looked after us all evening, and then wowed us with a Moulin Rouge medley!

    If you want to see a drag show, hell, even if you DON’T want to see a drag show, do yourself a favor and go to LIPS on Wednesday for dinner and the best little drag show in the City. You will enjoy great food, strong drinks and see some thing’s you’ll never forget.

    This place is excellent. The only reason why it didn’t get a 5 star rating is the payment options for large groups. If the business updates with the use of a tablet to assist with paying for items of purchase adding the tax and gratuity per person would be great. They are doing this payment option at various restaurants. This upgrade would be beneficial less time consuming for all.
