    Restaurant was not busy at all. Took 30 minutes for our drinks to come out and my boyfriends drink was forgotten and took 20 min to come out. Immediately ordered a second round because we knew it would take forever. The food and cocktails were good.

    Dined here for my birthday with a friend on a Saturday afternoon. There was only one other table occupied in the restaurant and yet service was slow. My friend asked our busboy for salt and he forgot it. Eventually, our waiter brought it, who was unfriendly during our entire time there. He never smiled. None of the waitstaff wore masks, which was kind of surprising to me. The menu is very limited. Pizza on the menu was not available. We were also told they had no eggs and no potatoes. My friend ordered the hanger steak, which was supposed to come with a "cured yolk" but it didn't since they had no eggs and yet our waiter said it was inside. I ordered the burger, which no longer comes with crispy onions so that was a disappointment. The burger was very ordinary. I couldn't even taste the cheddar and I think the meat had gristle in it. Not worth $20. Since I had indicated we were celebrating my birthday when I made the reservation, I was hoping they would bring out a complimentary dessert. When it was clear they were not going to bring any, we decided to order the banana bread brownies. It is only one of two desserts on the menu and comes with vanilla ice cream and fudge sauce. The brownies were not worth $13. Actual banana bread would have been better. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    This is one of our fav restaurants. They make one of the best burgers in NYC. Of course, you add that with wonderful service and it’s a big thumbs up for us. Their manager Edwin always gives us the best service and makes sure to get my burger just as right. Not always easy as I am a picky eater. Can’t wait to come back soon

    We opted to fine outdoors on a day when street construction was being done, so the noise (and smell of tar) was a little overwhelming, but not the restaurant’s fault. Our meals were OK. I had the avocado toast with poached egg (the accompanying salad was a little wilted and overdressed) and my friend had the roasted chicken with a small side of roasted veggies. Service was lovely.

    The food was excellent and the drinks are very good- specifically the Irvington Toddy. The music was a wide variety mix which added to the fun atmosphere. The server was nice. However, one of our orders was mistakenly doubled which we pointed out as soon as it was brought out. They said “keep it anyway” which we assumed meant we would not be charged for the mistake. That was not the case and unfortunately I didn’t see the small (2) on the bill next to the dish until the next day. Put a bit of a damper on the evening since it felt a little deceitful.

    This would have been a 5 star review had I left it at my first visit this past week. However, I was so impressed and excited about the the place after grabbing drinks with a girlfriend this past Wednesday night that I couldn't wait to book a reservation for date night with my boyfriend last night. Just to quickly outline both visits: First visit 3/4- Came in to a bustling bar area. I had arrived before my friend and happened to ask the hostess on duty if they provided tables for drinks only. To my surprise she gladly offered up the 1 open high top table they had right behind the host stand. It was perfect. We had great service, shout out to our server Luis(?) and that hostess. The whole experience left me excited to re-book it for date night with my boyfriend 2 days later. I ended up booking a res on OpenTable and even put in the notes "drinks only please". I was looking forward to introducing him to the infamous cold brew martini prior to dinner reservations we had elsewhere. Our reservation was at 8:15. We showed up right then. The place was much more tame compared to Wednesday night. 2 high tops were open. 1 had a reserved sign on it. The hostess working last night was awful and the attitude she projected after we asked to be seated at a high top for one cocktail, offered to get up when the reservations showed up, mentioned that I was told just 2 days earlier that these tables were for drinks only too, and then when all else failed and we asked her about the bar she said "there's only one seat left". After that exchange she finished it off with "no, you can sit in the lobby and someone will serve you." I was disgusted and wanted to walk out immediately but my bf sat us in the lobby and we made due. We ended up leaving exactly 1 hr later at 9:15 to make our 9:30 dinner reservations. To no one's surprise, both tables that were open when we arrived remained open our entire time in the lobby. She completely ruined a great first experience...for what?

    We were a party of five for brunch menu. We waited several minutes for a server to acknowledge us and bring waters. All of us were drinking coffee and a small thermos carafe was brought which we needed to ask twice to have refilled. Nothing was anticipated by our server; cream for coffee, ketchup with fries, etc. The server was neither pleasant nor appreciative of our business. The space is beautiful, the food good, but the poor service will not bring us back to The Irvington.

    How have I not been there before. Had a great affordable lunch in that neighborhood with super relaxed ambiance. Chicken sandwich and fries were different than I expected but in a good way. Special sauce made a crispy, non greasy chicken breast and good bun the perfect lunch. The bathroom set up is HORRIBLE but I’m sure they know that.

    We were looking for a late lunch spot but having difficulty as many restaurants were in between lunch and dinner service. We got a 5 pm reservation here. The waitress came up to us and basically said, you ready to order? Nothing like how are you? My name is...nothing except you ready to order. Didn’t tell us if there were any specials? Don’t know if there were? Food was tasty overall. Service sadly not so much.

    This space used to be Todd English’s restaurant called Olives. It was great. I know he and the Corp have gone through some things.....now it is called Irvington. it is a serviceable hotel restaurant. There is nothing special about the food or the service. I frequent this location. I wish they would/could do better.

    The place is very nice and well located, and the service is great. The food is just OK and it is on the expensive side. It means, according to OpenTable is an affordable restaurant, but it is not; they might need to correct that. The price goes with the decor, the location, and the service. The food is OK. It might be a great place for drinks. The music and the service are very nice.
