It was a little quieter then I anticipated, for a Sunday afternoon, we were put in a corner table off by ourselves. The food was very good and well priced. The service was not very good, the waitress did not come back to the table until the end of the meal, not even to ask if we wanted another drink which we did....not even water. We were there with my granddaughter so waiting was not an option. I might recommend O'Lunney's to adult friends and I would thing about giving it another try.

Our server took our order and then we never heard from her again I had to say excuse me multiple times to get her to come over so I could ask for the check. Food wasn’t worth what we paid.

Food tasted good, but very small portions for price payed! Also the server did not mention that drinks were not free refills! He was very fast and nice as well! Ambiance is great and very close the Times Square!

Well it was January 1st so maybe that's why our server wasn't very friendly but I would go back.

we came from Munich to celebrate New Year's Eve in New York. We were thrilled and will recommend the restaurant. The reservation via e-mail from Germany also worked wonderfully

Our family get together went off without a hitch. We had a quiet table during a busy season that enabled us to catch up. Our waitstaff was excellent. Drinks and food were very delicious. Have been here before and will definitely come again

I’ve been to a few Irish Pubs but didn’t think too much of this one. The service was fine, but the food was fair. I had a Reuben which lacked any real flavor. We had a child who got Mac n cheese, very pricey for a microwave heated dish which took at least 10 minutes to cool off. Other meals were fine. French fries were good.

Chose O'Lunney's for a pre-theater dinner down the block. We were very pleased with our selection.
We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was excellent. Caesar salad was ok, but shepherd's pie and fish & chips were very good. Bread was also very good. It was a very reasonably priced dinner for the area.

Got seated almost immediately. Having reservations is a plus. Food was excellent, lots of good menu choices. I only wish that the Irish breakfast was available all the time. It's only until 4 p.m. daily, and our reservations were for 5:15. Ambiance is wonderful. Old stained glass lampshades are beautiful. We'd go there again.

I ate here after seeing a show next door at the Lyceum Theater. The food was pretty standard, and the portions were worth what we paid (especially since it also came with a basket of brown bread!). The service felt rushed, as we got our two entrees less than 10 minutes after ordering. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised to get a bang for my buck, especially in a touristy part of the city!

The bar was very loud. We had to be moved. The food was just OK. The server was very busy and we had to constantly get his attention if we needed anything. Probably would not go back.

This is a great location for a quick meal pre-post theatre. I enjoyed at salad with chicken, and my husband had cod. The apple pie, while tasty, was expensive at $10.95.

Been several times. Food always great (definitely try the signature Guinness Irish beef stew). Very friendly service. Plus, the staff seems invariably from Ireland, a true bonus. Great place.

Had chicken curry over rice and chicken pot pie both excellent. Great stuff . Service was snappy despite the large number of people. Noise level was high but it was a Friday nite. All good.

Arrived at restaurant on time for a 6:15 reservation. Was told they could not seat us for at least 45 minutes. Reservation was in their system with a red line throughout. Host wasn’t particularly apologetic. Other reviews on Yelp have complained that this restaurant did not honor reservations. Says the reservation is “not guaranteed.” Unacceptable. Do not trust a reservation at O’Lunney’s.

The waiting list to get into the restaurant was insane. That's usually a good sign that lots of people want to dine here. We waited about 20-30 minutes for our table. The staff ran around trying to get people seated as quickly as possible. Best way to describe it was organized chaos, lol. We ordered the Irish stew, which was absolutely delicious. It would have been nice if a bread came with it. Since seating is so close to others, we chatted with people beside us. Such good natured, outgoing folks. The $11 slice of apple pie was good. It was rather noisy but what else would be expected of an Irish pub in Times Square a few weeks from Christmas? Would definitely return if the opportunity comes.

Look- you are in Midtown Manhattan looking for reasonable food/drink in a warm inviting atmosphere. Along with approximately 150,000 others. O'Lunney's is a solid choice- live music (with room to sit away from the performers if you'd rather), a good choice of "Irish" staples- we enjoyed the shepherd's pie along with a good fish and chips. The price point is what you'd expect given the location for both food and drink. Is it the best Manhattan has to offer? Probably not- but the convenience is worth the extra mark-up...
