Went here after seeing a play. A very nice place had reservations and I was seated upon arrival. The section I was in was empty just two other couples and we were seated right next to one of them it would have been nice to have a table or two between us. Ordered the nachos for an appetizer and for dinner my wife ordered the reuben sandwich I had the fish & chips. No long wait on the food and when it came out it was excellent. My wife Reuben sandwich was huge and looked good my fish and chips was also excellent tasty and cooked to perfection. Only mistake was the waiter brought me the wrong dinner he first brought out some chicken wrap but other when that food was excellent, would definitely recommend, and would definitely go back.

We really enjoyed our time here. We just arrived into NYC late and needed a good place to eat near Times Square. This was the perfect place for us. We ordered traditional Irish food and it was really good but the service was excellent!! Thanks for a great experience!

We chose O’Lunney’s for the location close to the theaters. We wanted drinks and food before our show. It did not disappoint. The buffalo wings were cooked to perfection and had an excellent taste. We also had the pepperoni pizza which was delicious. Service was friendly and well timed.

We had a very nice pre-show meal - the restaurant was very close to Lion King. We made reservations for 5pm for a 7pm show and ended up being finished by 6pm. They weren't very busy, so they didn't seem to mind that we sat and waited til 6:30pm. Varied menu, my teenagers had the steak sandwich, I had the chicken sandwich special, and my husband had the Irish Stew. All were very tasty - everyone was please with their choice. It was a 5 minute walk (at most) to the Minkoff Theater for our show. Service was very good as well.

Great atmosphere - great menu. Prices were decent for a restaurant in Time Square. Ambiance was great. One of the guests in our party ordered a steak that was rather small for the price ( 8 oz). However all other food was delicious. Large beer selection for those who drink . Waiter was very professional. Great spot , and NOT crowded.

O'Lunney's is a definite repeat restaurant for us. If we would have had more time, we would have eaten there twice on this trip. The grilled salmon was cooked perfectly! The cheesecake makes all others seem like something out of the frozen food section at Dollar General - it was outstanding. Servers couldn't have been more helpful and attentive at just the right times.

Other reviews made this place sound better than it was. We were seated near some stairs near the main entrance, so it didn’t feel like a dining room. Handed menus, then the waitress disappeared. After about 15 minutes, we got a busboy's attention to get her back to take our order. Barely had time to start our drinks and the food appeared. The corned beef Reuben was not a Reuben— more like a corned beef sandwich. Chicken salad and Irish stew were okay, but not great. Lots of other options in this area including other Irish pubs. Skip this one.

The bar tender was great. He was friendly and made our time there really great! I wish I could remember his name, but he was from Brazil. We were there Saturday (Memorial Day weekend) around 3 pm and Kiera the hostess was a doll. My husband had fish and chips and I had the burger and coleslaw. It was good. We will definitely stop back there in July. We visit Manhattan 8-10 x a year and this will be one of our regular stops now!

O'Lunney's is in the heart of the Theatre district, making it a very convenient spot for lunch. There was a good variety of food on the menu, which of course, contained Irish dishes as well as American fare. The food was moderately priced and was tasty enough. The Irish bread was delicious. Service was good and they didn't rush us out.
