Diner Reviews
  • "We went to Connolly's before catching a show this weekend. The food was delicious and reminded us all of our time in Ireland and England. The portions were good and prices were great for a dinner in NYC. It was quiet when we arrived around 5 PM, aside from the people enjoying the World Cup match in the bar. There were TVs in the dining area so we were able to watch the end of the match as well."

  • "As in the past, the staff was respectful, attentive and made all feel comfortable. The food was delicious and served on a timely basis - of course, we do have our favorite dishes. Because of our pleasant overall dining experiences, we do not hesitate to recommend Connolly's to friends. They, too, have enjoyed the professional service and fine cuisine. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Connolly's whenever we visit New York."

  • "Eating really good food in a delightful environment without having the to break the bank makes the whole dining experience a real pleasure to share. We were a party of 14 and not one person had a single complaint. And that is quite fantastic."

  • "Always great food and service. The Chicken Bruschetta Panini is always a hit! Awesome food, good, quick service. Never a bad visit. "

  • "The ambiance and decor of the restaurant are inviting and comfortable. The service is attentive without being intrusive. However, the filet mignon I had contained quite a bit of gristle; not what I would have expected from this cut. The carrots had clearly been frozen (not fresh), and I wasn't sure if the potato was from a mix. The mushroom sauce on the filet was very good. The brownie sundae dessert and coffee were very good. "

  • "Although we went at 6 P.M. for dinner on Wednesday evening, the bar was the only place where there was any action. This used to be a restaurant that was always hopping, but the menu is not very creative and the food preparation was just acceptable. Need to hire a better chef to bring back the crowd. Pleasant server. There are so many other Irish restaurants that provide better food and ambiance."

  • "I've patronized Connolly's on several occasions and I've never been disappointed. The food is great and the service is always on point. When I make a reservation and have any special request they always manage to accommodate me. "

  • "From the outside, I thought it might be a bit too "shabby" for the friend I was meeting who works nearby but the upstairs dining room was fine. The service was prompt and attentive. The food was pretty good and the prices good for the area. Certainly not "elegant" but much nicer than I thought it would be. I enjoyed the lamb burger and sweet potato fries and friend liked her salmon salad. Decent wine prices too. I will be back as the location suits."

  • "Excellent food,great service and reasonable prices. I've eaten at Connollys several times and I've never been disappointed. Service is consistently great and the food never disappoints. Whenever a group of us go out to lunch, Connollys is our place of choice. We are never rushed. Our servers always check on us to see if we need anything additional after our meals arrive. We are always asked if everything is satisfactory and the reply is always "yes""

  • "Food was good...I had a barbecued chicken salad that was quite tasty. Seating area was comfortable and roomy. Its a bit noisy but allNY restaurants seem to be. Our waiter was less than warm and not very attentative but not to the degree that it seriously impacted our experience."

  • "We have been frequenting Connolly's for years. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming. It was nice to be able to come in out of the cold and enjoy a delicious lunch after seeing a show. I had the mango chicken ciabatta sandwich and it was delicious. My sister had the fish and chips and found the portion to be gigantic! It was delicious. My daughter had the Shepherd's pie and my mom had the Brendan burger. Both were very good."

  • "The atmosphere was a comfortable bar scene, with tv's everywhere. Lots of locals on their lunch break, it seemed. Staff was super friendly, and service was very efficient, even at a busy lunch hour. We had a crab cake sandwich that was delicious, and a salmon/lox sandwich (don't remember it's menu name) which was also very good. Portions were large and the sweet potato fries are worth the upgrade. Had young kids with us, and thought the kids menu has plenty of choices and portions are a good size. The prices are decent, too, especially considering you're in Manhattan. Not over-priced like a lot of the touristy restaurants. We will totally be back!"

  • "Everything was great - the reservation process, the location, the food, the prices (except for the beer prices!) and the service. What we particularly enjoyed was that the location, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue, put the venue out of the more chaotic areas closer to Times Square."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Despite being the Marathon Weekend and the place was packed, our group of 8 people enjoyed a great meal, good service, and the menu offered a great variety of selections. Waitress was very accommodating and constantly checked to ensure that our needs were met."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "It turned out that a reservation wasn't necessary as the place wasn't busy on a holiday Monday evening, but you never know. Connolly's was in a convenient location and had favorable reviews, so we gave it a try and were pleased with the outcome. The dining room was more of a restaurant-type setting than I had expected. The food and service were good. The Connolly's Red Ale was not as good as I had hoped, but the beer list is respectable. The bacon on the steakhouse wedge salad was the smokiest bacon I've ever tasted! Bacon lovers should consider ordering something with bacon (American stripy bacon; didn't try the Irish variety)."
    Dined on 9/2/2013
  • "Food was ok. Had been craving fish and chips...huge piece of fish and chewy...not crunchy. Wasn't the NYC fish and chips experience we expected but just ok. Bar area very lively and restaurant extremely loud."

  • "Staff and management very friendly and efficient. Our group of 18 had no complaints."
    Dined on 6/29/2013
  • "As usual, Connolly's Restaurant, regardless of location, greets its customers with enthusiasm and warmth. With the distinct Gaelic accents, one could imagine dining in Ireland. The staff is efficient and the prices are a bargain for Manhattan."

  • "Very efficient and friendly! Excellent selection of beer on tap. Food was delicous dessert even better! Prices were very reasonable."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "From the website and menu I had high expectations of a real authentic Irish Pub feel. I was looking for casual, but still unique and high quality. My husband and I were on vaca in NY. It was very nice, clean and the food was good. I was hoping for over the top, as everything in NY is and I truly felt like I was back in WI and one of our Local Pubs. Which is great. Just not what I was planning."
    Dined on 6/1/2013
  • "Satisfactory irish bar food and beer selections. Service was very good. Sandwiches and fries were very good. I had a pasta salad with salmon that had a good overall flavor but the salmon was just okay. I think this place is a good value for the types of food that you expect at a pub."

  • "Loved the whole experience. I am holidaying in New York and met my son and his wife, who happen to be here at the same time for lunch at Connollys. I arrived, not too sure if I was at the right spot but the staff put me at ease immediately and from then on had a great lunch. Loved the postcard service. Thank you to all at Connolly for the great food and the great atmosphere."

They get it. You're there to enjoy your meal, and do some business. The have the perfect touch between being there when needed, and giving us space. I thought the food was really good....in fact, much better then I expected...overall I thoroughly endorse this place...I know there are four Connely's, this one is really really good. Go for it!"

  • "In an unusual scheduling I had two meals here in one day, so it gave me an interesting view of the place...and it really held up. I strongly, and highly recommend it. The service is really good....so professional, mature (although young!), completely competent. They know how to recommend things from the menu, refill drinks, yet give us enough space to talk business, and have fun! The one on 47th off Fifth is the Connelly's I went to, and they have that place running like a charm....nothing was a problem (changing tables, special orders) and everything was done perfectly as requested. Absolutely no attitude, and as I said, friendly and professional."

  • "As you can tell from the name, this is pub food. The service was quite slow and my friend and I had to wait abou 40 minutes for two wraps with fries. The waitress was not very friendly. The sandwich was tasty and hot which was good."
