Incredibly fast service. Quality of food was excellent on some dishes and so so on others. For example, the smoked salmon appetizer was superb and the burger was pretty good and the Cobb salad was exceptional. However the calamari was not so good. Drinks were fine, but a bit overpriced for a pub.

It was beautiful weather day which made it
perfect for rooftop dining. Service was great and service very good. Only bad thing was elevator was not working to go up so we had to walk the 4 flights. Did work on the way down though.

Friendly staff and we were greeted, seated promptly with our open table reservation. Typical NYC pricing; really delicious and fresh salads! Beautiful wood trim throughout the downstairs. Noisy as you would expect in a pub, but still were able to converse in a normal voice at our table.

We ordered a couple of drinks (beer and cocktail) and the Irish beef stew and shepherd's pie. Everything was great and the food not only came quickly but was piping hot. Love it! The server recommended the chocolate chip lava cake and she was right. It is quite rich but the chocolate lava is to die for. Service was excellent, in fact I felt they checked on us too many times. We were in and out within 50 min. If that's what you're after, before a theater performance maybe, give them a try.

Recommended by a friend but was pretty underwhelming, no real Irish charm, had run out of several of the craft beers early in the evening midweek. I'm sure there are better Irish bars in NYC.

Buon cibo ma con disservizio. Probabilmente il cameriere si è dimenticato di passare l’ordine alla cucina ed è passata circa un’ora prima di essere serviti. Ovviamente il “tip” è stato, di conseguenza, molto ridotto.

What better than an Irish Pub when your cousins from Ireland visit New York. We had a grand time, a nice meal, much fun and laughter, not rushed at all the pints were flowing to those who wanted. Highly recommended.

We always enjoy this location of Connolly’s. The food is very good and the atmosphere is an Irish pub with dark woods, brass and comfortable seating. We frequent Connolly’s and on this day our service was not very good. We only received part of our meal and when we inquired we were told they would check, and then had to remind the service staff a second time that we only received part of our order. My food got cold waiting for the rest of the order. We also were not approached about refills for drinks or as a normal check on the table. The restaurant was not busy when we were seated or placed our order. More customers were seated as we were there and they received attention. It was as if we were forgotten about. If the service was more attentive we probably would have spent more and had more drinks and dessert. As it was we felt forgotten about and left and went elsewhere to continue our evening.
