Great food in a very theatre friendly location. We had Shepherds pie which tasted fantastic & huge portions. Great selection of beers. All round thoroughly recommend

It was too noisy here for us - between the music and the crowd, we couldn't hear one another, but I don't think we're the right demographic for this place. The Caesar Salad and crab cake were just OK. We wouldn't go back. But it would be fine for people who want a lively place with OK food at reasonable prices (reasonable for the Times Square area).

We were staying at a hotel across the street for a week, and ate at this restaurant four times during our stay. Each time the food and service we’re excellent. It was a great value to get a warm, grounding meal at a great price in a fun, energetic-yet-homey environment. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing service considering it was Christmas Day and the staff were run off their feet but had it so under control that you'd never have noticed and it was exactly what we (as an English gal an Irish guy) wanted for our Xmas dinner in New York! Can not praise the staff enough for such a great job and lovely experience. Would definitely recommend O'Donoghues to others.

Booked for Xmas Day as was over from the UK in NYC with the family. Picked O' Donoghue's purely at random. Turned out to be one of my better choices. Really great atmosphere, even my 14 year old son enjoyed it! Great service, and superb food and kudos for opening Xmas Day, it was packed.

When in NYC I will visit again, no doubt about it.

We visited New York for Christmas 2017, travelled from Ireland. We booked the restaurant in advance as we wanted a traditional turkey and ham dinner for Christmas Day. On the day we arrived early and were seated straightaway which was fine. My husband and I had the $45 set menu, there was no separate children's menu for our three children, aged 11yrs, 10yrs and 5 yrs so we ordered from the bar menu for them. They had chicken tenders and fries, which were ok. The Christmas menu for myself and my husband was very disappointing and very overpriced for what we got. My husband had the vol au vents for starters which were cold. We both had the turkey and ham which had been advertised as 'with all the trimmings', it basically just had a spoonful of what seemed like very processed mash and a small spoonful of green beans and carrot mash. The turkey and ham was tasteless and the whole thing tasted like some mass produced catering stuff similar to a supermarket plastic dinner. My dessert was a so called cheesecake, tasteless and synthetic and my husband's apple tart wasn't much better. We had a bottle of wine and a couple of soft drinks also and the total bill including tip came to just over $235, the tip of 18% was added on to the bill for us so we had no choice but to pay it!! Ridiculously overpriced for very poor quality and we had to tip it as well!!! We considered making a complaint before we left but our children were keen to leave and it was so busy so we just left without saying anything.
I'm sure this place is great craic for a few drinks, night out etc, just don't ever go there for Christmas Day!

The food was great - salmon was cooked perfectly and the sides were the perfect complement. The bread pudding was delicious - if you don't like raisins (which I don't) they are very easy to remove - the accompanying ice cream is dusted with cinnamon. Can't wait to go back for the music.

The food is okay and the service was fine. However, If this is an Irish pub, then just about every bar in the US is an Irish pub. If you are looking for an Irish experience, you may want to look elsewhere.

With so many places to eat in Times Square, I kick myself for making such a poor choice.
