    The chicken curry was excellent. The ambiance was great. Menu had Irish pub fare but a good choice of other options. Close to Times Square/Theater district so it is a good choice pre or post seeing a show.

    I booked a group of 10 for 5:30pm and O'Lunney's was available. Their website and menu including Traditional Irish favorites was a draw as I was dining with my high school students on a class trip from Virginia. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. They called to confirm a few hours before were arrived and were flexible to arrange for others from my larger group to dine together. The food was great, timely and affordable. We will definitely be back on our next trip!

    We were visiting NY from Boston (kudos to the pin-stripers for spanking the sox at Fenway earlier in the week...many games left; thankfully) - and we were looking for a place to go near our hotel. O'Lunney's fit the bill and i was able to secure a reservation via Open Table quickly. Service was prompt and friendly, and our food was good. I'm a sucker for Guinness and Shepard's Pie and that's what I ordered and enjoyed. The manager came out to thank us for being there and his courtesy was noted and appreciated. Although we didn't spend time at the bar, it looks like it is a good spot for a pint, watching a game, and/or just hanging with friends.

    I went to O'Lunney's with a group of friends for an early dinner after a theater matinee. We were seated quickly in a large booth in the back of the pub and our drink order was taken soon after we sat down. The pub was a bit on the dark side, a combination of low lighting and dark wood but that made it seem more intimate and friendly. Me and a friend each chose the reuben and it was melt in your mouth magnificent. Our server was prompt and attentive. O'Lunney's allowed substitutions for french fries for a small fee and one of my friends took advantage and ordered a salad instead. I recommend O'Lunney's for a casual meal among friends.

    This restaurant is right next door to the Lyceum Theater. It is very convenient when seeing a play there. The wait staff is very pleasant and the choice of food is good. It advertises that it is Irish food but it is a very varied menu from many other cultures.

    Found this place on Open Table and was able to get a reservation for a Saturday Night for dinner at 6:00 after a matinee. Seating was very tight, with our table at times needing to be slid to the left or right to accomodate people arriving or leaving adjacent to you. The crowd however was very friendly, and it did make us uncomfortable. We just laughed it off with the people seated around us. We had fish and chips and shepards pie. The servings were adequate - not too big, not too small and all the waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Nothing we had overly special, but the food was quick and hot, the service was good and the crowd and staff friendly. I would return to this restaurant if in Times Square again.

    My sister and I went here for dinner were both pleasantly surprised. the service was super friendly, food was delicious and done to perfection. We both had the filet mignon over a bed of fresh spinach with garlic & butter, The vegetables were fresh not frozen or from a can, the spinach was also fresh & the garlic was not out of a jar. the Filet Mignon was done to perfections and the portions were generous. For desert we shared the Crème Brule which was to die for. The prices were great, a lot better then most other restaurants in NYC. Very reasonable. We will be going back to O'Looney's Pub and highly recommend it to all. Thank you for a great dining experience. Loved the waitress & her Irish accent topped the night.

    O'Lunney's is our new favorite Irish pub in midtown. Convenient to Broadway for dinner or a beer before the show, the staff was friendly, the place was filled with other happy patrons and the food was great. I'm not sure I would order pasta there, but the bangers and mash was great and everything in the menu was appetizing.

    We stopped in before seeing Billy Crystal's final performance of 700 Sundays. Nice atmosphere and decent food overall. Even though burger came out a bit over cooked--I ordered "medium well" and got "well-done", it was still edible and I didn't complain. Nice neighborhood place if you're looking for a decent lunch.

Good place for families. We have teenagers, but saw younger families there as well. If in the Broadway area again, we will go back.

    Energetic Irish pub. Good service, nice people. Food was good, not great, good. Close to Times Square so convenient if you're in the city to visit the Tourist spots (Times Square, Rockefeller Center, etc.) Probably better as lunch spot than dinner in my opinion. Worth a try if you're in the area.

    Food was fine; waiter was great; location next to Lyceum very convenient. Could NOT understand, when we had reservations on Sunday at 2 and the restaurant was not filled, why we were given a table next to a cash register, a pile of napkins underneath, etc.- not a photogenic view. Decided to ignore that and focus on the food and talk and both were excellent. I would go again, but I would speak up about where I sat - actually our table for two could not have been less enticing if we had just walked in unexpectedly and were squeezed in at last minute and the pub was full...and this was not the case. We had bothered with reservations and still sat in the worst seats. Disappointing.

    Our group of four ate dinner at O'Lunneys on a Saturday evening. The beer was good. The food was not. Not bad, just extremely undistinguished (and not very Irish). The calamari was pretty tasteless. Our main dishes (Reuben, shepherd's pie and fish) were below average. The service was friendly and capable. It's an OK choice if you're looking for a quick dinner near Times Square, but I can hardly recommend it.

    O'Lunney's Times Square Pub is not a relaxing, quiet restaurant. It has a loud, energetic bar that is quite crowded. Foodwise, O'Lunney's Times Square Pub is worth a stop. Next door to one theater and a few doors down from other theaters. Steak sandwich was delicious, tender, flavorful, perfectly medium rare. Fish and chips were light and flavorful. Potato soup with leeks and bacon, a special of the evening, was a disappointment with little flavor and no bacon flavor. I would definitely return.

    I arrived an hour before my reservation but was seated almost right away. Even though the place was packed, the maitre de actually came looking for me at the bar and was able to satisfy my request for a table with a little more light than normal (I like to read the paper while I eat). I ordered the chicken pot pie and I was pleasantly surprised that the 'puff pastry' top was flakier than most croissants you find in NYC! A very satisfying experience!
