We’ve been to Connolly’s before and really like it. Unfortunately, this time we had a server who was just not attentive. After we were seated, we waited about 15 minutes before the server came to our table for drink orders. After we placed our food order, the food didn’t come out for a long time. People who came in after us were being served, but not us. After 40 minutes, we called our server over to ask about our food. She seemed surprised we hadn’t received it and went to check on it. She came back about 5 minutes later and informed us she forgot to submit our order! She was very apologetic and got the order prepared right away then,.

Service was very slow. We sat on the rooftop and it appeared that our server had the majority of the tables, it wasn’t her fault. She tried, I don’t think they have enough staff to take care of the number of tables they seat. The food was average, nothing special. Ambiance was great, great location.

Very busy and servers forgot to put our food order in.
Sweet staff kept apologizing but couldn’t get their act together. This is a fun bar but don’t go pre-theater if you are on a schedule. Food is pub food and totally fine.

The hostess was very accommodating. We came into town late due to a travel delay. I made several attempts to call ahead to see if I could get a grace period w/ no answer. Once we arrived, they were able to find a table, which was appreciated.

They were short staffed but still good w/ little delay

They didn't check my vaccine status and there wasn't a mask to be seen. I left and went next door.

If you’re looking for fish & chips or shepherds pie, they had pretty good options. And you could watch college football for a bit as well. We sat in the rooftop area. It was a busy Sunday morning, and service was a little overwhelmed. They were super polite though. Probably a little understaffed due to covid. I will say that it was very warm, too warm, but nice and bright.

Went there after a Broadway show. First time there...did not disappoint. It's fun place...staff friendly and very responsive. Would definitely recommend and definitely plan on going back when I'm back in the city for another play!

We've eaten here several times. The food is good and the service commendable. The location is close to the theatres. Overall, a good choice for a pre-theatre lunch.

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 .

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.
