Adding a mandatory tip to your bill is NOT acceptable and not mentioned ! The customer decides if a tip is warranted , after discussion with the server we reduced the tip by 50%, check your bill !!!

After several nights out in Wantagh (concert at Jones Beach Arena) and Manhattan we unfortunately (but also fortunately... Read on..) went in this place. Having met with nothing other than friendliness from staff and customers alike during our stay it came as quite a surprise...to be spoken to/greeted as we were here. Unwittingly committing the ultimate sin of not waiting to be seated. We pulled a couple of chairs out (from the 30-40 empty ones), a member of staff basically asked what we thought we were doing. He then very tersly explained these tables and chairs were reserved for non-existent diners. As they were covered in napkins, liquids of various nature and other detritus I did wonder who the hell would actually sit down to eat at any one of the numerous empty tables. Having apologised to Mr Happy for not waiting to be seated I said we were just going to have a beer. There were no adjacent seats at the bar so basically we had to sit either side of another customer.. really. But absolutely could not sit at any of the empty (dirty) tables reserved for the invisible diners. We said thanks very much but we'll not bother and left, walked out of the side door and into Stich & Blues... EVERY CLOUD HAS A SILVER LINING!! What a brilliant place, amazingly friendly staff, great music, stayed hours, danced, chatted and laughed. Thanks Houndstooth for inadvertently pointing us in the right direction (ie: not your place).More

During our week in New York we had the fortune to stumble across Houndstooth Bar. What a find, friendly, accommodating staff. Great selection of food from snacks to full meals. We visited this bar on a number of times during our week in New York,...everytime as good as the last, if not better as the staff got to know us. One member of staff, Oscar, in particular stood out as highly professional and having a great character. He made our final day in New York a joy, with laughter and great service. We will be returning to the Houndstooth bar when we return to New York without a doubt.More

Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Food was very bland, we didnt finish the popcorn shrimp or our entrees (chicken potpie and shepherd's pie). Wasn't worth the price paid.

We ordered fish and chips. The cod was amazing the fries not they were soft and moist and the ketchup contained high fructose corn syrop. The waiter was nice however she had no clue what kinda fruits were in the ipa as we had a...allergy in the group and the other reason why they didn’t deserve better is that they automatically added 20% tip To the bill! Sorry that’s up to the guest he/she decides not the waiter! And I normally tend to tip 25% so this was a once and never again !More

Food is excellent (chicken pot pie is outstanding) but servers are overwhelmed. Took a long time to be served and the servers were doing their best. Food took a while to be cooked as well.

Great service, food bar & restaurant. Nice location, very fast service, excellent cooks. We had an Onion Soup (FRENCH ONION CROCK), CUSTOM BLEND BLACK ANGUS BURGER & COBB SALAD with chicken, which was AMAZING. Definitely recommend for lunch & dinner. They also have a bar....Interior is 30th or 40th Retro Classic American Saloon Design Style.More

Trevor and Aiden were some of the most gracious bartenders in the city and made my fathers 63rd birthday ‘one to remember’. We had drinks before the Knicks game and had to come back to close down the bar. If you want a nice place...to stop by in midtown, I can recommend coming here.More

It was my first visit to the Houndstooth Pub and had a great time. The bartender really made the night. Aiden I think his name was, but all of the staff were great. Given the location near MSG, there are a lot of new traveling...patrons and they made them all welcome it seemed. I didn’t eat here, but the food from nearby tables looked very good. From MSG it is a close walk and worth the few minutes to walk two or three blocks.More

The guy at the reception looked quite scary but turned out to be really lovely. My wrap was AMAZING and my husband enjoyed his ribs. Great food! My stomach is really happy

Came here only for a nightcap one evening. We were a large group, but the bartender quickly fixed us our drinks, which were quite good. As it was near closing time, the doorman came over to let us know ahead of time that we had...a solid 10 minutes to finish up and we appreciated his early notice. We really enjoyed drinks here and maybe someday, we'll check out the food.More

So my spouse and I went to this restaurant after a fun day in the city. Greeter advised us there were no tables but the bar was available, good for us. My wife is a wine drinker so a couple glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and...she’s a happy girl. But as for me…I ordered an old fashioned, I usually prefer with Bulleit Whiskey…yet for such a well stocked bar this was not on the shelf. So I went with the bartender’s suggestion. Sadly….worst Old Fashioned. Ever. Opinion…the bartender does not know how to make one. More on that later. Let’s talk food. It’s an English Pub yes? Well the wife goes with fish and chips….no complaints there. All ok. Worlds were not rocked but she said it was good. I ordered soup (Manhattan Clam) and Shepard’s pie. So 1st….all my food came out at once. So strike one. (two…the old fashioned was strike 1). The soup was good and hot (so many restaurants serve lukewarm soup….very annoying). The soup was good. I would have enjoyed it more if it had come out 1st. Now onto the Shepard’s Pie. Under the potatoes was a soupy, bland, flavorless glop. Very disappointing. Back to the drinks. After managing the Old Fashioned and deciding I just want a fun easy drink, I ordered a Long Island Iced Tea. Looked like she brought me a glass of coke. Couldn’t even finish it, strike 3). And despite it being a Saturday night, and being told tables were not available….the bar was half empty and the reserved tables never did get filled. Perhaps the lack of English Pub feel and club music playing in the background lent to this…my wife and I have been to some awesome English and Irish pubs in the city….this is not one of those. All in all a very disappointing end to an amazing weekend in the city. While we will be back to the big apple soon we won’t revisit the Houndstooth Pub. I’m not one to review anyplace this harshly and feel bad that I have. I hope some of what I’ve mentioned is heard. Thank you.More

We came here around 7 on a Saturday. Place was busy but we got seated right away. Our waiter was very nice. Everyone ordered a burger, except for me. I got their pulled pork sandwich. Everything was really good. Got the fried onion rings to...share. Nice and crispy. Batter could of been a tad tastier. It was a little bland. Music was also a little too loud on top of everyone trying to talk and laugh. But it’s expected in a bar these days.More

I visited this restaurant last Saturday with my partner and it was the most pleasant experience. Except for some rude British customers that is. The staff were exceptional. The Irish waiter was prompt, efficient and informative and had our drinks down to us in 3...- 4 minutes. The food was the best I have ever eaten and then portions were generous. I would highly rate the service and food and drinks at this bar/ restaurant. Well worth a visit.More
