Disappointed in dark, pool table/ casual bar type atmosphere. I was looking for a white tablecloth restaurant. Did not eat there.

There are a lot of brunch spots on the UES, however this should NOT be one you seek out. Although you do get 1 complimentary drink with your meal, they were not at all well made. The mimosas were flat (even the ones we paid additionally for) as if the champagne had been sitting out since the night before and the bloody Marys were mediocre at best. The steak & eggs entree was satisfying in both portion and taste, but nothing to write home about. We continuously had to seek out our server's attention throughout our meal and she seemed annoyed by our requests in general. There was only one other table dinning there that morning besides us, and honestly after that experience, it's not surprising that no one else was there.

Probably a good place to catch a game and relax at the bar although we were there for lunch. Good food, good prices. Homey feel. Good location.

Went to The Recovery Room on 3-16-13 after the St. Patrick's parade & we are so happy we found this place !!! We will definitely go back there again & again. The food was above average bar food & the service was excellent, even with the place being crowded, we never had to wait for refills. Great sports bar, LOTS of TVs all around the place. The prices were reasonable too. This is our new to go place when in NYC.

Sports bar type place with large TV screens

With so many other good dining options in the UES and New York City, there is absolutely no reason why you should spend your precious time and money at this place. The Recovery Room is a place with bad service and billing shenanigans where, antithetically, you check in and see your condition worsen.

Everyone is well-aware that service is the number one thing that sets experiences apart from the rest, especially when it comes to such an intimate and universally-shared experience as dining. Not only did I receive surly service but the terms of a Groupon voucher were also violated. Groupon reacted quickly and appropriately when these violations were brought to its attention; thanks Groupon!

The wings were some of the best I've ever tasted. The meatloaf, which was heavily hyped, was just ok. Good service overall, great beer selection.

Bar was fairly empty at first but started to fill up as time passed. Only one bartender/wait staff during visit, but food was great for a small place with not many people ordering off the menu.

Good place when you are looking for a bar and grill type restaurant. Staff very friendly.

It was a scorching day and we had just hiked
40 blocks to the met for an exhibit; were tired and
hungry...checked open table for a fun find
and lucked into The Recovery Room - a rare treat on 1st Ave.
Owner Joe O'Byrne was the perfect host for this Irish Pub
complete with authentic brogue and
the best of fare. He bent over backwards
to make me a gluten free turkey melt with
pear and even lucked into an ice cold gf beer!
Great neighborhood atmosphere; no pretense
and the kindest staff on record!
More gluten free additions to come
and can be counted as a repeat customer
Thanks Joe!!!!

Authentic approach to the typical Irish pub - complete with live, traditional music on Monday nights! Friendly, robust service has you feeling at home in no time. Though working on perfecting the spinach artichoke dip (the menu is brand new!), the cobb salad was a born classic and the shepherd's pie presents as fresh out of mom's oven. All this coupled with a welcome selection of beers on tap that represents the Emerald Isle... and beyond! Slainte!
