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.

With a reservation, still seated next to bar-impossibly loud. Didn’t have entree ordered from menu and forgot to bring two appetizers. Won’t be back.

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.

Good food, courteous service. Only minor complaint was that we felt a bit rushed even though they seem to have plenty of available tables. Overall though, good experience.

Overall a good experience after we finally sat down - we made a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes to sit down - not sure I would go again just for this reason. Food was really good.

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.

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.
