Second trip there because first one was so good. Was again as good as last time. For an Irish pub, they make a great chicken quesadilla and chicken curry. Sweet potato fries ordered as an appetizer was good and plentiful.

The ambiance was well done and realistic; the staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful; and the special selections of the day were delicious. We felt very relaxed, as we were not rushed at any time, whether to make our food choices or to pay the bill.

All in all, my friends and I had a most enjoyable and delicious gathering. We will return.

Connolly's Pub has been on west 54th street for decades, but the food is below-average. The beer selection is uninteresting, so there's really no reason to dine here. Friendly service, but it's not enough to bring us back.

This spot had all the character you would hope to find in an Irish Pub. Food was very good, beer was cold, and the ball game was on the tv. couldn't ask for more.

We had tickets to a show at Radio City so I first chose there due to its proximity to Radio City, and then the name. I wanted a real New York Irish restaurant and was not disappointed. Service was excellent, and my Shepard's Pie was perfect. Best of all we never felt rushed to eat, and make room for the next customer. My wife and I only visit the city maybe twice a year, and it was great to sit and relax over our meal. Thanks for a great visit.

We visited Connolly's Pub on a recent visit to NYC. We were headed to Radio City after dinner so it was a perfect location--right around the corner! We have a large family and we were running late for our reservation but they got us seated quickly and even put a rush on our food so we wouldn't be late for the show. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere was good, and the food was delicious!

We have eaten here before and the Irish food never disappoints. We arrived early and they were able to accommodate us even though they were busy. The only dissatisfaction we had was with our waiter who must have been having a bad day because he did not smile once and he kept neglecting us. That being said our Bangers and Mash were delicious.

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.

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.
