We always enjoy our Irish Restaurants. Selected O'Briens this time and was very pleased and satisfied. Had the Cream of Broccoli soup, Beef Brisket and Chicken Pot Pie. Excellent!!

Went to O'Briens for a pre theater dinner. The food and the service was excellent. I.also asked for a black and tan and was expertly done. We had shepherd's pie and a bacon cheese burger. Mashed potatoes and meat filling was amazing and easily one of the best burgers in NYC! Will definitely be back.

Thanks again O'Brien's for another memorable holiday get together with family. Our Rock Center Christmas tree gathering was topped off at the great little private room at O'Brien's. Very tasty bar food and drink and excellent service. Hope to be back again next year.

Special thanks for accomodating my last minute date change.

O'Brien's was an accidental find. The service was exceptional. The chicken pot pie was delicious. Overall, a great place for a quick, pre-theatre lunch.

Our server was a delightful girl just arrived from the west of Ireland and was able to recommend the best parts of the menu. The noise was fine but likely because there’s no live venue there on Sunday nights

We planned to have dinner but the noise level was intolerable. Not only was the bar hopping but there was way over driven bass booming coming from the back of the bar. Not a good place for dinner or any indoor voice conversation.

Average to below average and ambiance. It is what it is---a place that knows tourists will wander in and eat what is put in front if them. In this case, overcooked meat, tasteless and soggy fries, tasteless appetizers , etc. Avoid.

As always, the food is good (particularly the Guinness Beef Stew); the service is excellent. Our only complaint is that the music is so loud it's difficult to have a conversation in normal tones in the downstairs bar area, even as early as 5:30pm. They refuse to turn the volume down when requested. I can't see any point in that. The volume of the music couldn't possibly affect their business in any negative way; it's simply unnecessary to have it turned up quite that loud.

Came from out of town to see a play. Pouring rain kept us from walking around the city . We sat upstairs and drank and ate for a few hours and had a great time Candice our server was polite efficient and attentive Would highly recommend O'Briens and ask for Candace. Recommend the chicken pot pie! I will definitely return here next time in New York City

I've been to O'Brien's Irish Pub numerous times. We had reservations for 1:30 but had to wait an hour to get seated. Wasn't too happy about that since I had two hungry kids with me but it was St. Patrick's Day and it was extremely crowded.

I selected this restaurant primarily due to the proximity to a theater we were visiting, based on good reviews, location, and price. We had a lovely experience.
With our Open Table reservation we were seated upstairs as soon as we arrived. Our table afforded us ample room, the staffers were friendly and polite, and the food was excellent and ample.
My table guests consisted of my NYC actress daughter, my brother and SIL from NJ, and this visitor from NC.
O'Brien's managed to please us all, and make us all feel welcome.
Wholeheartedly recommended.

Our reservation for 10 turned into one for 14 or 15. They were very accommodating and gave us tables in great small room upstairs. It's our annual family Rock Center get together.
We'll be back next year. (and the food and service was very good also).

Dining for 12. Seated upstairs in loft with view of 46th St. We ended up at separate tables, but being in the loft, it was perfect. We could easily talk among ourselves without bothering other diners (room held 14, so goo fit). The beverages were excellent and the food outstanding. All 12 diners were very happy. We will definitely be back when we come to NYC in the future.
