Our waitress was noticeably intoxicated, she checked back several times because she had forgotten our drink and food orders. She never bothered to write anything down and at one point just slid into the booth next to me to go over the menu items again. My husband got violently ill within 30-60 minutes after leaving, and although management and staff were notified we never received a response. There are a dozen other restaurants within a stones throw, go anywhere but Connolly’s.

Food was excellent. Server was overwhelmed. Short staffed, as are many places. Was surprised that the first floor restaurant wasn’t open when we arrived. We had to go to roof top. They seemed to be overwhelmed. No one the to seat us or say to seat yourself. Very confusing. Hoping next time the main first floor will be open.

Two of our orders in a party of six were wrong. We told the waitress and she said it would be corrected. Then we never saw her again until it was time for the check! No drink refills. No order correction. A different waitress tried to help, but the corrected order came cold. And then we were billed for the items even though we were told it would be taken off the bill.
The manager came and took the items off the bill and was very apologetic, but it was a very disappointing experience. (And it was not so crowded that the waitress was overwhelmed).

Classic, iconic menu for an Irish pub. The Shepard's Pie was great, as was the Lamb Burger. Wine is always a shortfall in pubs. I get it, it is about beer. Having said that, if an Irish Pub gets a reputation for having at least a decent selection of wines, their wine-drinking friends and spouses wouldn't moan when the beer-drinkers suggess an Irish Pub. Give it a go...what can it hurt? .

I have been coming to Connolly's Pub for years. My husband's favorite spot. Wonderful Irish Pub. Love to see the first responders patches over the bar. The food as always was great. The Irish cheesecake has to be the creamiest cheesecake. Servers are attentive. This is the first time since the pandemic begin that we have been back. Nice to see some things have stayed the same!

Totally felt COVID-safe here- they took our temps before letting us come inside and bathrooms were super clean. The food was awesome and portions were way big for the price. DIdn't feel touristy even tho we were in a super touristy section of the city and it was cozy and warm on a nice crisp fall nite. Had the Irish Beef Stew special and it was delightful!

Great place to go for lunch or dinner especially if you are seeing a show. The restaurant is on 45th St. in the heart of the theater district, so it is an easy walk to or from most theaters. The decor is reminiscent of a vintage gentlemen’s club... nice bar, dark wood with a definite Irish vibe. The wait staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and the food was great. Pub food with an Irish flair. (Prices I thought were pretty reasonable.)... Worth every penny.

Had a 5:15 reservation and arrived at 5:00 abc were seated right away .
Friendly service. Manager came over to check on us . We skipped desert as it got very busy and we didn’t want to be late for the show . Would definitely return. Food was very good and a nice atmosphere . I’d say a step above the regular Irish pub .

Tired from traveling and sightseeing our first day. Wait staff was super friendly and helpful. Yummy French onion soup, chicken curry, and Caesar salad. Brussel sprouts also very good. Convenient and a solid meal!

Ok, pub type food. Burger was good, friend got beef stew and she thought it was good. Husband got shepherd’s pie, and thought it was not so great. Happy hour drinks at bar only even though sign said upstairs, we were told after seated it was only for the bar upstairs.

Visiting New York City. We went to Connolly’s for pre-show fish & chips. We were dismayed that a group who walked in off the street were seated before us, even though we had a reservation. I think we ended up with better seats anyway, and the food was excellent. A massive fillet of fish in a light, flavourful beer batter. Close to the theatre is a bonus. A definite win. Happy to recommend.

Husband and I stopped here for dinner before a show. It was very crowded, which we expected, but out table was shoved into an alcove on the second floor- wherever a table fit, a table went. The table abutted a half wall where the servers managed cutlery, glasses etc., but there was often a loud bang and resultant wall shaking which disturbed conversation. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive, but then forgot about us. The food was mundane but acceptable. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I had the portobello on focaccia and it was not particularly good. The mushroom was too thin, rubbery, and dry. The fries were very good and the lime pie was delicious. My husband had the Reuben and was very happy. I probably should have ordered something else. But I will go there again. I would like to try their breakfast.
