Excellent food ! Great Service The place is decorated for Christmas and puts you in the holiday mood. The portions are generous and reasonably priced Reminds me of the Old restaurant "Oh Henry" no longer in existance

After a hectic day in The City, where better to rest up for lunch or a tasty Manhattan than a good Irish pub? Pete's Tavern on Irving Place offers the best cocktails in town and lunch is pretty good too! Sit at the bar and sip on a Big Apple cocktail or get a table and enjoy the fare. Christmas... More

I called in here on a cold November afternoon for a quick glass of beer or wine - just something before the evening meal. Coming from England - old is not always best! It needs to be preserved in some way, not just left to rot and fall apart. That was the impression I got from this place. You could... More

We loved this place: the atmosphere, the food, the service. Everything helped made a perfect night. I personally liked my burger a lot, my wife loved her "penne alla vodka" and cosmopolitan drink. We felt it could not be more ZNYC than this, at least for a family of tourists like us. :-)

Had brunch with a girlfriend last Sunday before show at DR2. Both our first times. Loved the atmosphere and wished I could have walked around to check out all of the cool memorabilia on the walls. We got a table no problem. She had steak and eggs. Said steak kinda tough, but eggs cooked exactly to her request and good.... More

I had not been there in years. I love the atmosphere, waitstaff and heritage. They made a table available for us in a quiet part of the restaurant, which I really appreciated. I'm sure dozens of times an hour they get asked about which table O. Henry composed "Gift of the Magi". They responded to my question about that graciously.... More

We went to Pete's twice during a recent visit to New York. The first time we stood at the bar which was quite a boisterous scene. We decided to see what dinner at this venerable establishment was like the next night. I mean they've been in business for more than 150 years; they must be doing something right. Anyway, I... More

We stopped here on the way to a restaurant on Halloween. Pretty crowded but friendly staff and patrons. Good range of drinks...and they were serving free appetizers. Definitely go again.

We were recommended this place by someone who lived in New York. Sports bar at the front, bistro at the back, very friendly staff and cheap by New York standards and good food and portion sizes. A New York institution, well loved by the locals and I can see why x

Thank Haley B
