The service was excellent. I have been there twice now and can not complain. The service is quick. Everyone greets you with a smile. I really enjoy myself when coming here. Would definitely come again.

We visit Connolly's each time we are in the city. Everyone there is so friendly and accommodating. They are always checking to make sure all is ok with not only your table, but your food and service as well. They are super nice to kiddos too! The food is a great value for what you get. Everything is so fresh and delicious. The amount of food will leave you with leftovers too! I highly recommend Connolly's if you are in the city! You will not be sorry!

The waiter was very attentive and went out of his way to accommodate special order requests. The Manager, stopped by on 3 occasions to make sure all was well. The 4th person in our group was late and the Manager was especially clued into that situation. He stood inside the entrance, ready to ensure our 4th member found us easily! I chose Connolly's as we had been there a few years ago and enjoyed it!

We like to dine here when we are in the mood for Irish cuisine and it never disappoints though they have other food here as well. We both had the bangers and mash and it was wonderful.
Great food and service.

Martini was watered down - should have sent it back as well as my Hamburger - terrible - but my friends both had the salmon dinner which was fine

I'm Irish -American and sorry to see an "Irish" pub deteriorate into just making American money

1st - We made the reservation thru open table, but when we got there they had no table for 7 people. Ok, at least they had 2 tables for us. 2nd - One bill came back missing a 10 dollars bill. They assume the mistake, gave us back the 10 dollars, and a few "October pink" things to compensate. The good thing was the restaurant is right near to the MoMa entrance.

Great food, but the waiter only came by at the beginning and end. We never got water refills. They shouldn't have the first and second floor open when they don't have enough staff for it.

We have eaten here several times before the theater. It is always good and a great value.
Upstairs in fairly quiet so we and our friends can talk and enjoy our pre-theater get together time.

We had a group of 8, with two 13 year olds, before a Carnegie Hall performance on an early Saturday evening,. Half the group was an hour late and they let us hold the table and didn't seem angry at all. Food was fine - nothing exotic, but tasty and generous portions. We were seated upstairs, and it was cozy. We'll go back.

came here for lunch. We were seated promptly. Waitress insisted on taking our order really quickly "before the kitchen backed up". At first I appreciated her helping us get out in a reasonable amount of time. 45 minutes later our food had still not arrived and I had leave.

Staff was accommodative - originally seated downstairs right under speaker blaring requested upstairs for a quieter dining. Warned that a table of 12 was coming. Could have been a rowdy group but as accountants they kept things to a low roar

We were in a hurry to get to our show but starving so we stopped in. Food was just ok, we had the chicken curry. However, the burgers looked fantastic. All the food was hot and delivered quickly. The service staff was friendly and attentive as well.
