    Went here for lunch (seared tuna/melon salsa/rice). It was great and will definitely come back (it's a bar so it was nice and quiet during lunch).

    Great bar, been here a few times. Haven't eaten, except for pretzels. Get rid of the veggie burger option. I cut it, it fell apart, I bit into it, it fell apart more...funny sauce, not tasty. Ate my French fries and called it a day. Friends had chicken wraps, said they were good.

    We arrived at The Three Monkeys at 11:30 am for our reservation. We could not get into the restaurant, as the door was locked. Finally someone came outside and claimed that the restaurant was not open.

    Other than difficulties with the QR coded menu, we enjoyed our lunch. The craft beer choices on tap were excellent. It is hard to find a gose and the one they had was excellent. There were lots of local brewery brews, which is nice.

    I reserved a table and they have to set up for 3 when we arrived at the bar. I ordered fish and chips and have no complain with my food. I wish that salt and pepper is always ready on the table though. Hubby and brother were satisfied also with the beers they had. That’s all.

    Fun place- very very loud. So don't go if you want to catch up with friends and also don't mind sitting on bar stools with no backs. But....for a quick dinner before a show, it was perfect. Had the chicken satay which I appreciated in it's deliciousness and lower calorie choice! My friends seemed to enjoy their dishes. Service was lovely and prompt!

    This is a flat out bar. There really is no dining area per Se. It was very loud so I’m glad I was alone. I cant imagine having a conversation with someone at a table there. I’m not sure the disco fries even had gravy although the chicken tenders were good although how can you mess those up. Servers were very attentive though!

    Food was good but took awhile for Sunday Brunch. We sat at the bar because the bar tables (which was the only are open for brunch) were TINY. The perplexing issue was the flighty bar tender who was more interested in finding channels on the TV screens then serving her customers...tried for 20 minutes to get her to cash us out and finally had to scrape together enough Bill's and loose change to pay the bills with a slip of a tip so we could walk...her talents would be better suited for some other industry...good food...seemingly fun place...but have lots of time.

    Went fir pre theater lunch. It was a real bar! Food was really good however... staff was extremely caring and efficient. Sat on bar stools at a high bar table which we did not prefer but that s what this establishment is. On the same street as Studio 54 so was extremely convenient.. especially in inclement weather.

    Party of 8. Seated at 7:15pm with a reservation and with tickets to an 8PM Broadway show, so we stressed that we were ordering immediately and we ordered basics: cheeseburgers, fries and soda. After 30 minutes without food, I reminded the waitress that we were crunched for time. Food did not arrive until 7:58 - almost 45 minutes. Wolfed it down and the food was so-so. Still gave a good tip to the waitress because it wasn't her fault and she was clearly upset at the kitchen. I am a New Yorker and have been to over 100 shows and concerts in the theater district and MSG and all other Manhattan restaurants - especially pubs - know how to get you in and out. I could understand if there were hoards of other diners waiting - which there were not - or if we ordered 8 different things with apps, etc. Go here for a beer - had plenty of time to scour the beer menu - but don't order food; and if you have show tickets, pick any one of the 25 pubs in the area and you'll find better food and service.

    This was the only bar not on our researched list before coming to NYC, so it was a chance. This chance paid off as it was amazing! Lovely staff, waitress came over straight away with glasses of water then took our drinks order. Cocktails were excellent, right up there with the more expensive ones. We ordered food, starters and mains. Food came quickly too. All our starters and mains were very tasty and we’ll presented. I would strongly recommend this bar and it’s now on our own approved list of bars/ restaurants for our return visit to NYC!

    Main dining area is a little too loud for general conversation. But if you don't want conversation - then will suit. Staff very accommodating given we were a mixed group of adults and kids needing to talk. They moved us from the main dining and set up our table in the 'garden' (winterized) area. Food average pub-grade but pretty tasty.

    We went to the Three Monkeys for a date night bite to eat, before heading over to The Late Show... and we were quite pleased with the service and quality of food. The drinks were expertly made and the service was attentive, while allowing for a relaxed meal. We never felt rushed. A party of 12 was easily accommodated in the seating area (comfy stools and tall tables that can be pushed together). Overall, we highly recommend this restaurant if you're in the Broadway area of NY. Great food and drinks! GREAT SERVICE!
