Very mediocre restaurant. Went to this location because the location on 48th Street is closed.
Would not recommend. Many better choices in the area!

We went to the restaurant across from the Marriott Marquis in NYC. We were seeing a show there. We made a reservation for 6:30. Our table was ready and waiting for us. We were very surprised at how nice the restaurant was. It had nice ambiance. We had a burger, steak sandwich and pulled pork sandwich with fries. The food was good. The reason I gave it a 4 was because although the pulled pork was tasty it was on a small soft roll and was mushy. We also shared wings which were very good. We needed to leave the restaurant by 740 and was perfect timing. All in all I would definitely go there again and recommend.

The city was crowded this evening, and so was the pub on 46th Street, so our waitress was a bit rushed. Nevertheless she was attentive & efficient, taking orders & bringing drinks quickly. Noise level was high but it's probably quieter at lunchtime. Six of us all had different things and were pleased with our choices. Washington state cab was very good. Sirloin steak sandwich was excellent (lean, tender, and plenty of meat). We'd definitely return and happy to recommend.

An absolutely awesome time. WOWZA actually!!!

I put in a request to have a very dear, close friend and I greeted a certain way - both arriving and leaving.

Those few, simple spoken words by the staff took her by complete surprise... and meant so much that she was beaming.

To top it off during dinner, a song very close to her heart just happened to play on the radio.

Let's just say the whole experience was truly beautiful and magical, like her.

Cant fault the place or the food . Service was good up to the point where we were asked if we wanted deserts, which we did not , another beer would have gone down well but we were given the bill , so taking the hint we left . It was not busy , there were quite a few empty tables . Poor service spoiled a lovely pub .

Excellent customer service, they were respectful of needing accessible table on the main floor; delicious oysters. The shepherd's pie I wouldn't order again, as I thought it was overly salty and disappointing, but I would definitely go back and try other dishes.

There are a few Pig n Whistles in the area. I sat at the bar at the one near Penn Station and enjoyed the bar food and drinks immensely. This time, we tried this one due to its proximity to a concert we were going to. Large, multilevel bar/restaurant that are common in the forties midtown. A selling point are the highboy tables near an open balcony overlooking the street on the second floor, but we opted for a regular table behind those. Food was OK, but nothing special. While generally satisfied, a lot of little things detracted from my experience. My friend ordered a Guinness, but got an Octoberfest. We ordered 12 oysters but got only ten and the shucking left quite a bit of shell in them. I was spitting shell from every one I ate. The missing oysters were deducted from the bill (can't complain too much at only $1.00 each) and a wrong beer wasn't worth complaining about to us. The almond encrusted cod on special was fine, but small and a bit dry. I wished I'd ordered the fish and chips with lots of tartar sauce and malt vinegar. Notable pluses: The beer was fresh, tables/chairs were comfortable and bathrooms were singles and clean. I'd come back on those points alone but eat something less exotic.

I love this place, they have one of the best burgers I've ever tasted. It's a bar scene but super casual, could also be a date night. Definitely good for happy hour and sports.

The pulled pork burger visibly burnt the side of my sons mouth, I feel the meat was microwaved so it had "hot spots", he had a mark for days. The chips must have been reheated as they were mostly just like crisps

The staff member on arrival was extremely helpful and showed us to our pre booked table, even though we were late due to the flash storm it wasn’t an issue for them. Then the waitress came and answered any questions about the menu we had. The steak I ordered was delicious and none of our party could fault any part of the food
Would definitely go again

I chose Pig and Whistle because it was located near the theater. We were seated immediately and my request to sit downstairs was honored. The service was very good. Brunch specials were delicious. I ordered the French Onion soup and was disappointed. They also let us sit as long as we liked without any problem. The restaurant, however, was not very cool and it was hot outside.

The pictures online are very misleading. The ambience displayed online does not match the actual interior of the restaurant.
Service was so-so, having to ask for refills on water/beverages. The food quality was very average, nothing to write home about. One of the bathrooms was out of order, and the one that was working could have been cleaner.

Very disappointing

Showed up for our reservation only to be informed by the waiter they were closing in 10 minutes and could not accommodate us

Meanwhile others continued to arrive and gain entry

I thought it was a joke at first but no joke !

Dear survey-mongers,
As an experienced survey designer and analyst, allow me to introduce you to the concept of survey fatigue. It occurs when nearly every on-line encounter with a product or service vendor triggers an on-line satisfaction survey. This bombardment comes from many places: airlines, car rentals, Amazon purchases, American Express, dining at your neighborhood eatery. Sorry but you have already exceeded your survey request limit.

I see that in order to complete this survey certain questions require responses. I have scored them neutral so as not to favor or disfavor this particular product.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. It was very crowded when we arrived but we were promptly seated at our reservation time. The majority of the restaurant is in the bar area, filled with high tables and stools that were a little too high for us and the hostess gave us one of two regular tables in the back in an area that was almost private and definitely more quiet which we appreciated. Our waiter was friendly, brought us menus promptly, answered our questions, and gave us ample time to decide on what we wanted to order without being intrusive. The California Cobb salad was excellent and my cousin enjoyed her hamburger platter. The restaurant was very clean and the decor was traditional with lots of wood and exposed brick walls. It had a very homey feel and all of the staff we talked to were as friendly as our waiter. It is most definitely a genuine Irish Pub. A fun place that I highly recommend.

This visit not up to usual standards. Server was not on the ball. Burgers not cooked to requested doneness and ordered items didn't arrive with order. No crowd so really no reason other than wait service.

Decor was cute! Food was ok but service was horrible! To make matters worse we were a party of 8 and the waitress got 20% automatically! No water, no water refill, never checked on us during the meal. Every time I was looking for her she was standing by the bar talking to the bartender. Ugh Management needs to get better wait staff

Everything from the appetizer to the three meals we ordered were fabulous! The cheese plate felt a bit skimpy for the price but the quality of the items on it were superb! We will definitely be back for the fajitas and shepherds pie!

Host did not record my visit so there was confusion by Open Table on credit.
Very empty at noon on Saturday before matinee.
Service was well meaning but amateur.
Food was basic pub food as advertised but really
Mediocre.
