Scallywag's reviews from OpenTable diners
  • We ate in backroom away from
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/28/2012
    We ate in backroom away from the noisy bar and it was quiet. We sat on benches that felt like they were going to collapse.. The three of us had burgers which were okay. We were surprised when we got the bill, not only had they added an automatic 20% tip, they charged us $2.00/drink for the ice in our scotches !!! We won't be going back.

    Scallawag's is a fine Irish bar which serves a very good Irish breakfast. Nothing super special about the place, but it is a comfortable place to go and have brunch, watch some soccer, and generally hang out. We'll go back.

    I checked in and quiclkly left as the restaurant was a lot different than what i envisioned based on the description page. it was much more of a college pub atmosphere which did not fit my needs. I don't view this as a negative, just a bad fit which is bound to happen in the world of virtual rezies. Thank you, Patrick

    Pretty empty for Sunday brunch. They give you a free Bellini, mimosa or bloody Mary with your meal, which is great. $15 additional for unlimited isn't cheap, but they'll let you keep the pitcher at your table if you'd like. The food was good, too. My burger was delicious and they easily accommodated my 12-person group, though it might be a different story if it's a particularly crowded weekend. I recommend this spot for aggressive AYCD brunch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Albert Hall is a really cute little tavern that definitely feels like a local hang-out. The decor was neat and eclectically British, the walls were papers with book pages which was cool. The mac and cheese was good and the sweet potato fries were awesome (but the veggie burger was average)! Our waitress was super personable and helpful.

    went for brunch - and clearly this is not the place's focus (or strong point). by 12:30 they had run out of bread except brioche. brunch was decent - but nothing special. cocktails and beer list look much more promising - will give a second chance for dinner.

    We ate there on a Friday night with a group of 6 and had no problem getting a table. The food and the ambiance was incredible. From the wine, to salads to entrees...there was nothing that missed the mark. In fact, it all exceeded our expectations for this price point in Manhattan. This is definitely on our top list of favorite restaurants in New York and we will be frequenting there often!

    I loved their cocktails and my friends enjoyed their beer. We ordered a bunch of appetizers (the beef tendon, the steak tartare, the spinach dip, and the mussels). I would recommend all of the dishes except for the mussels, which were a little on the small side. The service was good, but was a little slow at times and didn't comunicate with each other too well. Also, beware of open flammed candles near the wall. While we were there, one of the candle sticks fell over and hit the wall... fire hazard...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/18/2011
    Came by on the last day of the LivingSocial deal. I brought two friends from out of town and I was embarrassed! - The Malbec was undrinkable. - The bread rolls were hard as stone and tasted like air. - The Skillet Burger ($15 a la carte) was bland and the bun was dry. - The fries were just ok, but I prefer McD fries over these (I never go to McD so that actually says a lot). - The Bone Marrow was decent. Woohoo! Even with the 50% off deal, the food was way overpriced. $90 for a cheap bottle of wine, two bland burgers and two so-so appetizers? I wouldn't even have paid $45 for it. I guess I just did.

    the staff are super friendly and attentive. however, it's a pub with standard pub food. the floor and chairs and tables are all wood, so none of the sounds are muffled. the overall din and chatter is so loud that you have to shout to hear anything the person next to you is saying.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/24/2011
    In relation to Broadway the area was perfect. Was not even a 10 minute walk from the theater. The restaurant had mainly happy hour guests at the bar, one couple seated outside. When we were seated there was no one else seated in the dining area. Despite this it took at least 10 minutes before anyone even poured us water or checked on us. After water, it still took another 10 minutes just to be asked about additional drinks or offered bread. Once we finally were attended to, the food did come out quickly. Our waiter was extremely friendly and attentive to when we were done with each course. Food was good, but for New York it was just okay. Over-priced for the lack of ambiance and food-quality. We won't crave to return here.

    A disaster! We came in based on really good reviews on a saturday at 5pm. It was not busy, server took 20 minutes to get to the table and he did not identify himself, we thought he was a busser. He came with no pad to take our order and had to borow a pen from my wife. Bread stale and hard, food came out stone cold, when we sent it back they flashed it in the salamander that made the scallops like ruber and the batter on the fish and chips go soggy. zero manager presence, no apoligy he took nothing off the check and we went down the street for burgers.

I had Scallops w/garlic and arugala,w/mashed potatoes, aand my spouse had Fish and chips. Both entrees were very good,and if we had been dining at a later time, we would have enjoyed it more. This was no fault of the resturant.

    We had a nice time at Albert Hall...everything is solid, from food to look to service (actually, service was pretty charming and efficient). It's an eccentric place, with no discernible 'type' of crowd and odd music choices for a high-end gastropub (from Latin pop, supposedly for a crowd of cancelled-prom attendees, to classic pop).

    been here a couple of times before and love it. love it even more because it's one street over from where i live. i know this was a holiday (memorial day) so it was really quiet. in fact, we were the only ones there! service was "okay". the server was bored and looked it. seemed like he was waiting for us to leave. one in my party knocked over a wine glass and broke and he didn't want to replace it. rude! eventually he did. food is great. beautiful place. i hope it stays as it's been a hard location over the years. just correct the service!

    The food was excellent, however we had a very long wait before being served. Maybe we should have ordered some starter, but nobody said it would take forever. The music was awful and obtrusive...the server was pleasant but completely ineffectual. The kitchen seemed incapable of handling any more than one order at a time. I would not go back even though I had one of the best hamburgers in a long time and my husband had excellent mussels and frites.

    The service was slow. While we got our food in a timely manner (thanks to the food runners) and our water glasses kept getting filled (again, thanks to the support wait staff), our waiter never came back to the table after taking our order, and our wine glasses sat empty for quite sometime without being asked if we wanted something else to drink. The ambiance was ok and the food was pretty good, but the inadequate service ruined the experience.

    Interesting menu with so-so execution. I'd been here once before and liked it enough to come back. The second time, the service was downright terrible. Long waits between courses, and clueless response from wait staff when we politely asked what was going on. I guess depending on the server, I might give it a qualified recommendation.
