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.

This local used to be Olives. Now it feels like a hotel restaurant with Olives prices. Nothing wrong here....nothing to write home about.

it is a good place to meet up in a semi-casual environment with friends or business associated. Its a comfortable place that is btw white table cloth and casual, hence appropriate for meeting friends or business people you know.

Very underrated spot! Lovely restaurant near Union Square. The food was high quality and the service was amazing. The ambiance was great, high ceilings, good decor. Highly recommend getting the artichokes as an appetizer, so so good. Overall, a little pricey but relatively standard for NYC, most dishes were under $30.

It was pretty empty for a Friday night, hard to say why - maybe because it is connected to the W hotel - but you honestly wouldn't even notice that's the case walking in unless someone told you.

would go again!

Great “date night” out for my wife and me! Food was delicious, it was fresh and well presented. The service was perfect, our server, Allison, anticipated some of our needs and made the night a great experience. Would certainly go again and again.

I had brunch with my friend on Saturday. Spoke with the hostess number of times. I don't know why I got no show after all that talking. Also the food was way over priced. brunch was just two eggs, 2 toast pieces with 1 jam type, and potatoes. I had to order sausages on the side. my friend also had similar dish. costs us $70+ and then I tipped them too much for that. The total with the tip was $84. I want to remove the tip and not return here.

Service was spotty and we were placed at a cramped table before we requested to move. In addition the shared bathroom with the Taco Restaurant were sub par. Really surprised. I have been to other Gerber Group restaurants such as The Campbell and Mr. Purple all top notch. It can only go up.

Very good food, excellent place, ambience and service but a slight imbalance between price and offering. I ordered the line caught tuna, evidently the best in the menu and i got a plate with just tuna, no sides, no bread or rice, no extras; just tuna. Walked out hungry despite of paying a respectable bill...

Allowing a new waiter to serve without supervision is not a good idea, but they let it happen. It wasn’t a great experience, but the manager comped our meal due to the multiple issues. She did the right thing!

The Irvington is my stand-by in Union Square. Food is always good. Service is always great! Comfortable seating & not too much noise. It would be great if they could work out the bathroom situation, however. You have to go upstairs in the hotel next-door. But that's hardly a tragedy. I highly recommend the Irvington.

The food was terrible. The mushroom goat cheese omelet was rubbery and overcooked. The Eggs Benedict lacked an essential ingredient - the Hollandaise sauce.

The atmosphere and service were good but the food was just average. We were here Easter weekend, so perhaps the regular cooks were off duty! I would go to this restaurant for drinks and snacks only and try some of the other lovely restaurants in Union Square.

i like that it is in the neighborhood. The service was good. The ambience was okay. The bar is noisy, but the restaurant is quieter than many restaurants in this neighborhood. The prices are ok, but the menu is limited. The chicken parm was big and crispy but doesn't come with anything, so you have to order a side, which is annoying. I actually didn't love it, but if i wanted a nice restaurant nearby, i would return.

The food, cocktail selection, location, and aesthetic are what drove me to dine here for a meal before a concert at Irving Plaza. Unfortunately, the incredibly poor service is what we’ll remember most about this place. Our waitress was extremely slow to take our orders & deliver food/drinks. I’m usually not a stickler for these things by any means, however, this was truly a weird exception. What really drove home the poor service was when we hadn’t been seen or visited by our waitress for over a half hour and were looking for another round. We stopped another waitress and asked her if she could send our waitress over. The other waitress informed us our waitress went on a break, but hadn’t asked for anyone to cover our table. I thought this was super odd and unacceptable. Won’t be returning.

My mouth is still recalling all those delicious flavors of our three courses! It was an amazing combination of ingredients. Also the quality & quantity was perfect. There was much care & patience taken in the preparation of each course as well. All in all , it was a wonderful dining experience! Loved it!

I eat a lot so I just wish they included pasta with the chicken parm... definitely not enough chicken for the price, better off with the burger, which was also very good! (That came with fries)

Great drinks! The food was okay, but felt like a lot of $ for what you got. The best dishes we got were the tuna tartare, and the lamb ragu. The burrata, tilefish, and cauliflower pizza were all fine but not very flavorful

We should have checked on the noise level before we went! It was horrible. We actually like to have a conversation with our friends -- impossible! Will never go again and unless you are interested in a place to drink and make noise, don't go to this place.

Had a nice meal with good drinks at Irvington. A Dirty Martini with black pepper goat cheese stuffed olives was amazing! Our food was good tho pasta wasn’t as hot as we would have liked. Good service from a rotating team who somehow made it flow smoothly. Would return for tuna tacos. Great location.
