We enjoyed our meal so much; it was my mother’s day meal and it was perfect. We had fish and chips and shepherds pie and they were both delicious. Thank you.

I would recommend Connolly's--the food was tasty, the service prompt and friendly, and the prices quite reasonable for a midtown Manhattan lunch. I will be returning!

Decent food, but took a long time for it to be ready. The Reuben was tough to eat for it was very stringy. Wait staff were pleasant and accommodating. Allow extra time if you are planning to see a play after you eat.

Really good night tonight - food was all really good (clean plates - always tells a story!!) and the service was friendly and prompt without being pushy or rude. All the staff were really lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Would not hesitate to recommend and would happily go back. Great venue too with a great atmosphere.

We made a reservation and we’re seated all the way in the back in the corner and forgot about (literally next to the bus boy cleaning dirty plates). I asked for a booth and saw one was reserved thinking that was maybe for us but the host was like you have to make a reservation. When I said I did she’s like well you don’t always get what you want. Rude people who worked there. Food was okay and we still tipped well since it had nothing to do with the waitress. She was busy waiting on all the tables no wonder we had to wait.

Positives: we were seated right away, the waiter was very sweet and seemed motivated to make sure we had a good experience, and the food was good.
Negatives: all the food was not brought out at the same time. Half of us received our entrees about 5 minutes before the rest of the party. We ordered an appetizer that never showed up. The bus boy started clearing dishes and glasses away without asking us if we wanted them cleared.

Our reservation was for 7 at 5:30 on the Saturday before Christmas. We arrived about 15 minutes early but they were ready for us and sat us immediately. Our server was great and gave her suggestions with so much ease we all laughed! Food came out quickly and was hot and well presented. We were not rushed or felt hurried in any way. Would highly recommend!

My extended family and I decided to see the tree at Rockefeller Center and knew we’d need a last minute reservation. Connolly’s was very accommodating and changing the number of guests a few hours before was no problem. The place is quite large and can handle a group. The food, service, and drinks were excellent. We didn’t feel at all rushed,

When I arrived they said that Open Table was down for the holidays, but I told them that I have a confirmed reservation. Luckily it was pretty early (5:45ish) so they were able to seat us very quickly. We had a party of 9! It seemed like a fun atmosphere and the food was good! The waitress was great! We would definitely go back but make sure you call to make reservations during the holiday season.
