“Warm pub atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We ate at The Long Room twice during a recent weekend trip to New York because it was very convenient to the hotel in which we were staying. The menu includes a variety of pub-like options including a few Irish inspired selections. They offered a large variety of beers as well as draught wines. The space is very long and narrow--hence the name--making it feel kind of tight when it's full. The first time we dined during the early evening and it was very full. Our servers were kept quite busy. They tried to help each other out to attend to everyone's needs, but sometimes they fell short a bit. The second time we visited was mid-afternoon. There were still quite a few patrons there, but it was not as full. Service was OK, but don't expect anyone to provide you with their undivided attention. The food was good -- not exceptional, but satisfyingly tasty. Since we visited during winter, we appreciated that they made the effort to protect diners from the cold draft of the door opening and closing by hanging drapes across the entryway. The interior was warm and toasty. If we were in the neighborhood again, we would not hesitate to choose The Long Room again.

“Warm fire and friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

How nice to sit in front of a fire on a snowy day in NYC! The atmosphere is comfortable, the choice of beer extensive, and the bar grub satisfying.

“Great for Parties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I recently had a work party here. The back has plenty of room, but can definitely get very busy. Would not bring a date here.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I was looking forward to a classic gastro-pub lunch, but The Long Room fell short. The dining room was cramped and noisy, with uncomfortable high tables with stools. The food was just average. On the plus side, the staff was very pleasant and capable.
