    My friend and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch before the theater. We had perfect service, the restaurant was very quiet and our table was private...such a treat for a theater district restaurant , and we enjoyed a nice meal. The prices were reasonable and we enjoyed the ambiance! The Long Room has now become our favorite Midtown spot for lunch.

    Dined on 6/14/2014
    The food was actually pretty good and hot, which is a plus for me. However, that is where the praise ends. The first waitress took our orders then we never saw her again the entire time we were there. The next waitress required several times being asked to refill drinks and bring new drinks. It apparently also required 15 minutes to bring out a side of mayo once being asked. We finally got another waitress to finally bring the drink refills we requested from the 2nd waitress. The only critique of the food was it was slightly under seasoned, so it would have been nice to have salt and pepper. If you are willing to brave the horrible service for some pretty good food, them you might like this place, otherwise find some place else.

    We had noon reservations here before a Sunday matinee. Although website said it would be open at 11, it was not. Finally a young woman opened the door and brought signboards out, no sense of welcome. We went in and although we had requested to sit in the back because earlier reviews had said it could get noisy up front,she ignored us and said she was the only one there and seating us in back would mean she would be running. Had her manner been friendly, we would have acquiesced. But she was remarkably unfriendly, even hostile. We insisted on sitting in the back which was very nice. Food fine. Great selection of beers. When we left, we heard her telling bartender, she was tired and feeling grouchy! We will NOT return.

    I booked a 12:00 reservation for 3 people. I arrived 15 minutes early and gave my name. They looked at their reservations screen and then seated me in the back. From my seat I could not see the front of the restaurant. I ordered a beer and waited and waited for my guests. At 12:20 I called one of my guests. They were both sitting in the front of the restaurant. They had also given my name and were seated there. I mentioned this to the hostess who had no reaction at all. I would have expected a simple "I'm sorry we messed up." Fortunately these were not clients or it could have been a problem. The food and beer were fine and I can understand that mistakes happen. I thought the lack of a reaction was troubling.

    We wanted to love the Long Room. Great music, including a live performance later that night, and a fantastic selection of beer. Unfortunately, the food was salty and soggy. The burger was overcooked and dry, and the fries were brown mush. Maybe it was an off night, but not even the service (which was great) could make up for the bad food.

    Great little find in the heart of NYC Times square area. Pretty quiet for the business or the area. It's a quaint place with a great menu. We had several apps and meals and all were fantastic. The staff was attentive and friendly. There were several large flat screen TVs, great for watching a sporting event. It has a long bar with high top tables and booth both in the front and back. I will definitely be going back next time I'm in New York.

    flatbread pizza great, burgers great. I wish we were given the option of being seated in the back of the restaurant. I wasn't aware there were more tables back there until I went to the ladies room. We had no option given by the waitress only to sit up front, which had backless chairs. Also, the restaurant wasn't crowded and it was after lunch time too.

    Ate at the Long Room before seeing a matinee on Broadway. We sat in the back of the restaurant and it was cozy for our group of seven. Plenty of reasonably priced choices and good choices for the Tweens that were in our group. Lots of beers to choose from too. Would go again especially before a show.

    We were a group of 10. They sat us in the back where the booths are raised and the tables are not. Our knees were at the same level as the tables. The restaurant was completely empty, so there was no reason to be sat like this. We asked if we could move and our waitress was visibly annoyed. She did not crack a smile and did not thank us when we left. Although they open at 11 there is no brunch menu and no drink specials. Don't waste your time, unless you want some "New York Attitude!"

    We had made reservations at another place weeks before for what was an annual holiday gathering. When we got to the restaurant they claimed to know nothing about it. We consulted Open table and found the Long Room could accomodate 17 and was half a block away. It was a Sunday and we were the first through the doors so I don't know what the place is like when it is packed. For us it was perfect. The staff was layed back which suited our purposes and the room was beautifully decorated for the holidays. It was large and cozy at the same time. The food was good and the atmosphere and service were right for a large group. I can't really speak to how they operate at capacity but for our needs it was perfect and we will go back next year.

    My wife and I tried this place for a lunch prior to a Saturday afternoon theater date. This place is pretty much everything I want in a pub: decent beer, reliable comfort food, and inviting decor. The Long Room does indeed have a long bar at the front, but then opens to a dining area with tables and booths at the back. We sat in one of the curved booths which was great. My burger was delicious and was accompanied by excellent Greenpoint Anti-Freeze ale. During the course of the meal we did have to work at catching our servers attention, but it was lunch and it was busy - not like she disappeared or anything. I think we've found a new go-to spot whenever we go into the City for an afternoon show!

    We enjoyed a delicious pre theater lunch of burgers fries, and salad. It is conveniently located to the theaters. The generously sized burgers were juicy, and prepared exactly as ordered. The fries were fresh cut, and the salad was fresh and nicely dressed with a tangy vinaigrette. The "harvest" beer from the brewery of the month perfectly complimented the meal. The atmosphere is relaxed, and welcoming. The service is friendly and professional.

    We made reservations for 11 people celebrating my daughters upcoming wedding. I must say the food was very good, although the seating not so much. First we were told that our table wasn't ready because we had arrived early, when in fact when the reservations were checked we were correct. We were than sat at a table in the back in which they put together 3 tables which again were not enough to accommodate the party of 11. Then another section opened up on the other side in which we were moved there, again putting small round tables together to again try and accommodate the party of 11.Although the food is very good, as far as being comfortable and "all" sitting together to enjoy the evening that didn't happen. We will go back again!.

What a great find, superb choice of beers and a great bar manager who was happy to help me choose one, Saturday night was steak night special deal, so my night was complete with a 14oz cooked to perfection.

    I have been to the Long Room after work with groups of people but never for dinner. Food was really good, casual pub type food but with a foodie type flair. Had the edamame hummus as an appy and really enjoyed it. All the dishes that went by our table looked very good. Beer list is long and impressive, as well as the special brews that they always have. From the outside the Long Room doesn't look that big but when you get in there it opens up. Hidden gem in the Long Room is the fireplace. If you can get a seat by that, you'll never leave. Convenient to all the major theaters and right around the corner from Good Morning America's studios on Time Square.
