Priority Pass and other lounge membership access may be limited between 5:00 PM - 1:00 AM daily due to space constraints. Children under 3 years old are admitted free with an adult.
Quite a decent business class lounge, particularly for one shared by several airlines.
Probably the nicest, newest lounge I've been to.
By far THE BEST Lounge I've ever visited anywhere in the US! VERY friendly staff and the selection of drinks and food was perfect, in the 4 hours I was there the selection changed, nice. Wifi good.
Great cold cuts and Mediterranean spread as well as a few hot dishes. Liquor selection more extensive than typical US lounge. A little cramped at peak hours but staff are friendly.
Couldn't get in...they were supposedly at capacity and told us to come back at 9pm (2+ hours later)...so in other words, they're regularly understaffed and have regular hours for turning people away...
They were full and wouldn't let anyone in.
Friendly staff, free hot food and free premium alcohol! Not as modern as the DL Sky Club but MUCH better amenities.
Very nice, quiet lounge with good food, great drink selection, & great views of the airport. Staff was friendly, and it was mostly empty when I was there (midday Tuesday). Recommended.
Ho hum food and bar choices. Very few outlets easily accessible. Restricts Priority Pass during evening rush. Fine if you get in free, better than DL SkyClub, but well below Centurion Lounge.
Self service bar and few hot food options. Lounge is separated into areas which is nice. Quiet with good seating availability.
It's ok for a stopover. Small choice of food and everything is a bit worn down. Plugs by chairs but no USB ports.
Had an overnight layover and came here to catch some sleep. Felt safe and comforted by the friendly staff. There are plenty of seats to sit in or couches to lay out. There is an open bar with sangria.
'Temp' facility a bit of a letdown when compared with prior location. Staff very accommodating, physical space and furnishings a tad shopworn. We hope planned renovation improves this facility's glory.
Really like this lounge. Good hot food selection at dinner, ample snack and drink choices. Lots of different seating areas with great views. The library is a great touch.
Food is better than the Swiss lounge which is just next door, though this lounge isn't as well designed.
Very nice lounge. Good food, wine selection, great service and seating areas. One of the best lounges at JFK, imo. (And, they have Lorna Doon cookies ; )
Amazing food, fresh and hot, both in quality and number of options. Seating is average. Was kinda noisy. Service fantastic - they grab your plate the second you put it down. No showers.
It is pretty new but showing some signs of heavy use, things are getting a bit worn.
Not much here. Comfy old chairs. Limited choices for snacks (no dinner, just soup, fruit and ... cereal).
They seem to have discontinued the hot breakfast, which was the only reason to choose them over others in the morning.
Spacious with quality food choices.
At 9pm, there was nothing other than soup and a few drinks!!
Almost no food, soup but no bowls, worn out furniture, but liquor is free and it's big with lots of seating.
No premium spirits, Jack Daniels wasn't available. Nicely air conditioned, a bit breezy for some. No glassware, only paper and plastic cups.
Nice place to get away from the crowds. Limited food options, but at least hot food and healthy things to eat (salad bar and fruit). Self-pour alcohol for those interested. Nice coffee machines!
Couldn't get a drink. Someone walked off with bottle opener! Couldn't get a fork because they were all being washed! Front desk was nice, but everyone else, nope! Skip it and do Sky Club!
Lounge was great. Plenty of beer, comfy seats, snacks, clean rest room, and very friendly staff.
This was the nicest lounge I've used at Kennedy. Personnel were friendly and the furnishings were relatively new. The soup and salad, as well as self-service beer, wine, and mid-range liquor was nice.
The food is pretty disappointing. Only hot food for breakfast are two tubs of what looks like instant ramen.
It's plain and simple.
The space and food selection is quite nice but the staff who worked there would constantly loudly talk to each other as though it was their private lounge space. I found a used syringe in the mensroom.
Nice compromise to the VIP lounge.
It's a small lounge. I was here from 11pm to 12:30am during a weekday and it was still very crowded and not very quiet.
Seemed like a temporary location. Decent finger foods and snacks. Great alcohol selection. Wi-fi speed is good. Lots of comfy seating. Can be a little noisy, but there are quiet corners.
No frills in T4. Plenty of space but sparse food.
Good food, but limited choice. Free alcoholic drinks. Rather small lounge. Courteous staff at check-in, service not as good.
Small but okay lounge, soup and noodle. Good selection of beer.
Poor food choices, lounge is dirty.
Just a small step above staying in the terminal. Maybe the toilet is better, and there is free food. Best part is probably the liquor/beer (bottom shelf but ok). Was overrun with nowhere to sit at 12a.
Limited choice of food, a good choice of beers and all in all pretty mediocre.
Horrible, cold food, toast, and one type of soup available. Bring your own food if you only have access to this lounge when flying out of terminal 4.
Overall, great lounge. Friendly staff, limited food choices but there was enough to make a meal out of what was available. Spacious, adequate views of planes.
It's a bare minimum lounge that's better than waiting at the gate but not much more. You want to go to Delta Sky Lounge if you are in terminal 4. Dated facility, crowded, minimal amenity.
Used to be a good lounge, no more hot food served and no more showers. Nice view tho!
They were not accepting Priority Pass. We asked & the friendly staff told us to return in 30 minutes when there is more space. We came back & it was worth being away from noise, free snacks & drinks.
Feels more like a bus terminal than a lounge. Very depressing. Sad, sad selection of food. And if you have Priority Pass (biggest scam as I have yet to get into a lounge with one) they will restrict you.
Checked in at noon. Not crowded, plenty of snacks, salad, bakery items, assorted beer and well drinks. All complementary. Good coffee too. Clean enough rest rooms on both side of lounge. Will visit again.
Arrived at 5:30 am after a long flight. No fresh food for 90 minutes. Just sweet cereal and cookies. No milk. Finally, at 6:50, someone showed up to begin replenishing--a slow process, too late!
Foods are cold, horrible. Staffs are inattentive. There are also several of weird people hanging around there look like homeless.
This lounge needs some serious work. I swiped in before an AM flight and there was great beer and a decent coffee...but nearly nothing else. The food available seems to depend on the arrival time.
Entered at 2pm with 2 guests using Priority Pass through CSR. Food well stocked. Fast Wifi. Staff was nice though there was an Indian cleaning lady who was sort of rude. Overall good, would come back.
Decent food, hot soup and alcohol free. A lot of chairs had food crumbs and it's a bit small and tight.
By far the worst lounge I've even been in. Cramped, hot, noisy, dirty. Most public areas in most airports are nicer. Worth about what I paid to get in, which is nothing. Left after 5 minutes.
Probably unpleasant when crowded but quite nice when I was there. Nice selection of complimentary beer. Lunch was good - Mediterranean salads, dolma, hummus. Wifi good enough.
Got to the lounge at 6:40 AM and not much was out. Stale looking bread, bagels and couple of yogurts. Saw a cleaning lady clean a mess on the counter. I was not impressed.
Entered around 8pm Sat. Crowded and hot. Unimpressive food and drink selection.
I think the other reviewers summed it up well. Better than waiting at the gate but def not worth a detour. Lounge feels worn and tired. Food is a bit better than a typical "big 3 lounge".
It was uncomfortably hot. Seating was worn and outdated. Floors and bathrooms were not clean. Buffet needed to be refreshed. Service non-existent. Better than waiting at the gate, but just barely.
CLOSED by health department 4/20/2017, they tried to send me to Swiss lounge, obviously they don't take Priority Pass.
4/22/2017 now partially open. No hot food. Health department warning still attached to door :). Very friendly host apologized: "Refrigeration problem, we just have to get it fixed".
Perfectly Adequate, Nothing Mind Blowing. Usual fare.
Small, tight seating quarters. It's very basic, if the beverages weren't free I would be sitting by my gate. However the NY state sparkling wine offering was prob the best part of the lounge.
Extremely basic. Almost no quality complimentary food. Only plus is the self serve bar and that barely gets it 1 star.
Avoid at all cost. That place is a literal dumpster fire.
This lounge is configured to hold the maximum number of seats. Those seats do not have any power outlets. They have a small but tasty selection of hot food and soup and a salad bar. Many newspapers.
The first attendant was rejecting Priority Pass members without checking space. The second attendant determined there was adequate space. Decent alcohol selection but the food was unappealing.
Mostly too expensive for what it offers... Very basic and not very comfortable/spacious.
So-so.. still better than waiting outside and food/drinks are ok. But nothing crazy. Comfort is very basic. Service ok overall!
Very small, old and limited food items. Good selection of liquor but not enough to make up for old furniture and uninviting atmosphere.
Dirty, sad. Would rather pay to eat Shake Shack. Go to Delta lounge by gate 31. It's amazing.
The guy checking me into the lounge was great. Pleasant, and let me know about the gate change. Better selection of beer than the Swiss Lounge and liquor in the morning. Food choice is poor.
Terrible. No attention to clients. Loud. Not a club, just a place to sit and get a drink.
Loud, crowded, and food selection horrible. Not worth the entry fee if you have to pay.
Kids screaming, no airport screens and no great food.
They recently updated the furniture but everything else is the same, including too many loud kids in the morning. Breakfast is just okay but the alcohol selection has been improved.
Food is hit and miss, last week it was great, today it is not even edible. Good selection of beers and sodas but the refrigerator is not cold at all. 10 staff members today, all standing and talking.
Extremely poor choice of food and beverages, poor seating capacity, dirty lounge. At least restrooms were clean enough.
Walked in, walked right out. Dirty, small, almost nothing food wise, food on the floor, not worth for any amount. They really need to update and improve a lot.
Small lounge for amount of passengers in this terminal. Still a decent place to stop for a drink and wifi.
Definitely a pretty crappy lounge, like all other reviews. They often close to new entrants when they hit capacity. Based on size, my guess is that happens often. I’ve been once and turned away once.
Really crappy, small, overcrowded, only a few options to eat and drink. I prefer to wait in the gate!
This lounge is pretty small and doesn’t feel that luxurious, but during breakfast hours, I’d choose it over the Delta lounge as they have hot food (eggs, potatoes and sausage/bacon) & fruit.
Food looked gross. Old looking tuna, yucky looking hummus and for someone who can’t have most carbs there was nothing for me to eat. They had fruit. Beers were warm in fridge. Coffee machine very nice.
Yikes, this is probably one of the worst lounges at JFK. The food selection is poor and everything just seemed really dated.
Came here expecting the worst due to previous reviews. Variety of wines, beers, juices. Hot food - breaded fried cod, mashed potato, brussels sprouts and comfortable wide seating with tables.
Nice place to sit and rest. Breakfast was nice. There is a toaster. Sitting area to the right is much nicer.
Denied access to priority pass for my entire 3 hour layover. Only paid customers. Please don’t bother being an affiliate
Always a pleasure. Great staff. Comfortable clean. Food isn’t a meal but more than a snack. I wish the whole lounge was the batwing chairs. The only lounge that’s always accepting PP.
Closed to Priority Pass. Come back in 45 minutes.
Don't waste your time. Close to priority pass members although it looked pretty empty.
Great beer and alcohol section , that’s about it
Food is okay. Self serve beers and liquor. If that's your thing. Can be busy sometimes.
After security, turn right and proceed 100 yards, lounge entrance is on the left.
