Diner Reviews
  • "Last minute reservation - just needed to eat - boy were we pleasantly surprised. Great Pub food, but better than typical "Pub" food. Service was fantastic - friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. The greeting and "thanks for coming" were warm and fun. Really had a great time and a great meal. Thanks."

  • "We were pleased with our dinner here. We did not want a fancy, expensive restaurant nor did we want a "fast food" place. Connelly's fit the bill! The restaurant was comfortable, the menu was varied and satisfied all tastes, the wait staff were considerate and eager to please. Six of us were very pleased."

  • "My husband were looking for a good Irish pub restaurant for a while and in the city they are all closing etc. Now we found Connelly's on 54 Street. Our servers were great, Kevin and Alessandro terrific. Lisa was the hostess and she was lovely also. The food was very good and the Bloody Mary was superb!"

  • "If you're looking for a nice quiet unpretentious meal with a warm, welcoming service, you can never go wrong here. They really make you feel at home!"

  • "Good pub fare at reasonable prices made my dining experience quite enjoyable. The chicken bruschetta panini was delicious and filling. The fries were a bit over done and the Manhattan clam chowder, fair. The place was easy to find and the service, very good. Both the server and manager(?) stopped by frequently to make sure everything was to my liking. I'd definitely swing by for another meal the next time I'm in the area. Oh and ask to be seated on the second floor if you are looking to have a meal that's on the quieter side."

  • "We decided to forgo the Steak House scene and go our for a fun dinner. The pink Valentines Day special menu wrapped in lace was a nice touch and added a little romance and ambiance to the evening. The host and server were outstanding. Both were highly attentive and showed genuine interest in providing us with an excellent experience."

  • "Location is good. Food is basic pub food. Certainly satisfying and in good -sixed portions.Drinks however were over -priced considering the small size of the glasses and the high price for them. We have been there before but I don't think we shall go back again."

  • "The food was delicious and the owner was very nice to us. The service was very well and friendly. I would recommend the shepherds pie!"

  • "When I'm in the area I usually go to the Connelly's at 45th Street; I decided to try 54th Street for a change. The staff was welcoming, pleasant, attentive and not overwhelming. My date and I shared the calamari as an appetizer, and two of the specials, a burger and pasta with shrimp. Everything was full of flavor, and just the right amount was served. We sat in a booth downstairs so I didn't see what the upper level looked like. There was a hopping bar at the back, but we didn't hear them until we used the facilities. Personally, I'll take a good dose of pub food over an over-priced, gimicky theater-district restaurant any day."

  • "Good food, good service and very convenient midtown location for lunch and dinner. Upstairs is preferred as downstairs is very noisy."

  • "This is a moderate-price, casual restaurant in an area where there are mostly expensive, fine dining or tourist-appealing restaurants. This is a Pub restaurant and the menu is varied and the food is nicely prepared. It is great for casual dining in a "high-priced" area."

  • "The food was fine, the drinks fine, but the staff was fantastic!"

  • "Opted for Connollys on our first night in New York as it was only 1 street away. It was quiet, we had decent service and food was good. Good servings and the burgers are more than enough. Would return here."

  • "Food was great and the service was also great. Would eat lunch there every time I am in NYC."

  • "Nothing particularly noteworthy but it is a fine place for an ordinary lunch in midtown. Burgers are fine."
    Dined on 7/1/2013
  • "This is an easy place to grab a good hamburger pre-show. Maitre'd/manager is Irish and charming. It's not haute dining, but it doesn't claim to be either. Just simple, unpretentious, palatable. I'd go again."
    Dined on 6/6/2013
  • "We met friends here on a recent Saturday night. There was one other table in the dining room and they didn't seem to be eating. I'd chosen Connolly's because I thought it would be quiet enough for a conversation but the morgue-like ambience was a bit extreme. At 10.30 we were very politely invited to leave the restaurant because the cleaners had arrived."

  • "Connolly's is a great place to relax and enjoy your meal. Nicely priced and friendly staff. The food was delicious."

  • "This was a great spot where the food is good and the atmosphere is comfortable. The owner came over and told some stories about a Pub he owned in Ireland which made the experience fun."

  • "Good pub food with fast service! Not much atmosphere but for a good, fast lunch - it's great!"

  • "Irish brunch hits the spot...great blood sausage...excellent value"

  • "Our trip to Connolly's @ 54th was nothing short of terrific! We were greeted at the door and swiftly shown to our table, the menu was explained in detail... and the specials of the day. The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent... so much so we returned a few days later! Would I recommend it... yes I would, would I return... Without a doubt!"

  • "I made a reservation here to meet four out-of-town relations, but one of them got confused and detoured the group to the wrong Connolly's (there are four locations in NYC)! The staff at 54th Street was ever so kind, helpful and understanding during the hour I waited to hear from my relatives. I will definitely go back another time to 54th St Connolly's! As it was, I ran down to the branch on 45th Street and had a fabulous dinner there with my group. All five of us enjoyed the entrees and desserts!"
    Dined on 3/24/2013
  • "Very mediocre food. Nothing special about it except maitre-d was very hospitable"
    Dined on 3/8/2013
  • "Always a good choice for lunch or dinner. Good food, service and they get you in and out quickly!"
    Dined on 3/7/2013
  • "The food was average at best. The potatoe skins appetizer was probably the best part of our meal. My wife had the Chicken Parm and it was only fair. I had the Chicken wrap and it was somewhat better. The service was not good. We had to ask the waiter for various things that should have been provided automatically."
    Dined on 2/23/2013
  • "Our first visit was on a Friday night, and we were back Sunday for brunch. Just a wonderful spot (we were on 54th Street). Could not have been better!"
    Dined on 2/1/2013
  • "If you like irish comfort food, and this is the place to be. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I had the Irish stew and my friend had the grilled tuna steak sandwich. My stew was bursting with flavor. The meat was perfectly tender and the broth was soo good I wanted to drink it from the bowl. My friends tuna was seared and very flavorful. I even loved the coffee and I had decaf. I will most definitely be back here again."
    Dined on 1/31/2013
  • "The staff worked as a team....fantastic. The teens and I had a very nice experience. Very convenient after a day at MOMA!"
    Dined on 1/26/2013
  • "Perhaps we should have stuck with the pub favorites. We ordered dinner specials - steak and tuna. Both were over-cooked and dry. I would not go back voluntarily, but if I were forced I would try something a little simpler from the menu like bangers and mash."
    Dined on 1/24/2013
  • "We were looking for a casual restaurant prior to a concert at Carnegie Hall and Connolly's worked out perfectly. Good choices for both draft and bottled beers, and the food was tasty and moderately priced. We enjoyed the dinner and will be returning again. Just need to have them stock a few more Irish single malts!"

  • "I am astonished at the ratings that my fellow OpenTable diners have given this establishment! There was one other table occupied at 6pm. The poor staff tried to make up for the insulting wine list and poor food combinations, but our experience was one of fast food for tourists. Shame on you!"
    Dined on 7/31/2012
  • "Solid choice for an Irish Pub in midtown. Everything you would expect - including Irish menu choices and drafts - in a cozy but welcoming atmosphere. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there, but I'll certainly be back when looking for a pub in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 2/24/2012
  • "Nothing special, but if you are looking for average food at a reasonable price, then this is not a bad choice. Staff is very accommodating."
