O'Neil's is a comfortable restaurant with an outdoor patio which is very inviting when the weather is cool. One of the most popular dishes on their menu is the duck that is served with O'Neil's signature orange sauce. Another item that is worth mentioning is the lamb shank that is served with lemon and butter caper sauce.

The ambience of O'Neil's is very warm and friendly, and their prices are also reasonable, making O'Neil's a good destination for both those who live in the city and tourists. The delicious food and congenial atmosphere make the perfect combination along with the well trained staff. O'Neil's is now closed.

Waited 30 minutes to order outdoors. When food arrived, flatbread appetizer was cold. Waiter indicated that there were issues in the kitchen. Main course of pasta with pesto sauce was ordered al dente...came otherwise. pesto sauce was more oil than pesto. This place is a fallback if one can't get in elsewhere.

This was my first visit back to the redecorated restaurant. I preferred the old look and feel better! The white decor, small tabletops and bench seating were not comfortable. Altho the food was good, I still probably wouldn't come back. The cool look and feel of the restaurant left me cold.

My family and I dine at O'Neil's fairly regularly, and it is a reliable, 4 star restuarant that we enjoy. This visit deserved a 5 star based on the food choices and quality not experienced before. As always, the entrees come with soup or salad: that's value. chicken tortilla suop is great, cream of broccoli okay, Caesar salad great. The entrees were all terrific, starting with roast chicken, to sirloin steak, to skirt steak; all generous portions, well prepared, delicious. But the high point was the availabilty of dover sole. Not prepared tableside, but still tasting fresh and flavorful, and compeltely unexpected. Service is always top notch, and wines are limited but reasonable. Will continune to be a regular!

This has become our "go to" spot. The food is consistently delicious, creative and fresh. The service is great. On these rare nice summer evenings. it's a great place to eat outside. Pastas are fantastic, seafood is too. Save room for the banana bread pudding.

When I made a reservation for lunch on Open Table I shared I was bringing my girlfriend's parents to lunch and was going to ask them for their blessing to marry. The service was great: we initially sat outside and then it suddenly started to rain lightly. They moved an umbrella to shelter us but as it started to rain harder we moved inside. The gave us a great spot in the corner and moved all of out drinks, etc. in for us. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful with his recommendations, and at the end of the meal they offered is a complimentary dessert to celebrate (the chocolate cake was excellent). Thanks to everyone at O'Neil's for helping to make this a happy and memorable occasion!

PA: They said yes! Now i just have to ask her!

Hadn't been here in a few years and menu looked good online so decided to try again. Loved everything about our evening at O'Neils! Friendly staff who kept checking on us. Poured a great drink. A menu with so many things that sounded good it was hard to decide. And loved that a salad came with every meal, even the burger (which was amazing!). Everything the six of us ordered was outstanding. Will be back a again soon!

O'Neil's is like a well-kept secret. Not too difficult to get a reservation, good food, eye-pleasing décor - consistently makes for a pleasant evening.

We went for a late lunch. It took about 10 mins to get our server and since it was 1:30 in the afternoon and there were just a few tables occupied,
That was crazy. We ordered and waited 17 minutes and we saw no one and had no food yet. Our order was fairlty simple. One gazpacho and half a salad and my husband had a Sandwich, we told them how dissatisfied we were and they didn't try to make it right so we walked out! Not a good experience!

Our experience at O'Neil's this past Sunday was actually excellent.

The food was very good and the prices were fair. We enjoyed sitting outside, except for some troublesome flies.
The gazpacho soup, the Roast Duck, the Skirt Steak, and the Fettucini Alfredo dishes were all excellent.
We will go back on a regular basis. The service was good too.

O'Neil's is our go to restaurant when dining with friends who live on the North Shore. The food and service are always good and since their recent remodeling, the ambience is delightful. We,recommend it highly!

We never received some food (they asked if we wanted after the fact) and then they took our order, they were out of food and didn't even realize it. Needless to say, they need to work on their operations.

This was our second year here, for Father's Day Brunch. Two of us had the crab cakes eggs benedict, and 2 of us had the standard eggs benedict. We all agreed ours was delicious. The ambience is great....very light, fresh and currant. The service was good. We all enjoyed ourselves. We ranged in age from 22 to 79....3 generations!

We went there with a party of 7 to celebrate our son's graduation. It had been an awesome day already. The restaurant made it a great night, too. Food was delicious, drinks were made in a special way that we requested, waiters all very friendly. We didn't mind the tv. The updated design is cool and modern, a mixture of a bar, lounge and a modern restaurant.
Looking forward to my next visit!
