“You MUST visit!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

We discovered this bar as part of tour, where we only had drinks, and decided to revisit it as we saw the food being brought out on the visit. All I can say is that my wife and I thouroughly enjoyed the whole experience, the staff were attentive but chilled out, which for New York City is a rare find. The ambiance was perfect , not to loud you couldn't hear yourselves speak, but not too quiet that you had to whisper so not everyone could hear your conversation. The decor is amazng, all carved wood panelling on walls and ceilings. The bar was busy but well managed and we didn't wait long after we left the dining area for drinks. The restrooms were very clean and the whole place was comfortable and unrushed. A great place to eat and drink.

Tip, For fans of Sex and the City, see if you recognise this place

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

As an Englishman in NY, I think I have found a home from home. Forget all other pubs in New York, this place has it covered. The food is outstanding and the selection of drinks is second to none. My wife and I popped in for a drink to get out of the cold but the staff were so welcoming that we stayed for hours. We were so impressed that we went back the next day and the welcome and service was even better. Give this place a go. Great atmosphere, great drinks, great good and service that makes you feel as though you have been a regular for years. Next time we stay in NY, we're gonna stay in Soho to be near this place.

“Delicious Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Interesting corner location. Great bar ambiance. Dark and comfortable on the inside, tables on the sidewalk when the weather allows. Service was excellent. The beer was delicious and cold on an unusually warm October day. For lunch I had their BBQ shortrib sandwich and fries. Both were exceptional. Seems like a great place just to hang out.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We decided to go to ONieals for supper as per the great reviews on tripadvisor. Well we were not disapointed. Food was delicious and cooked perfectly. We arrived at 4:00 trying to have an early dinner before meeting up with some friends. But they do not serve sppper until 5:30 which was fine, we had a couple of drinks, the craft beer on tap is great!! We ordered the Scallops on Sataki asperigas rissoto and the penne vodka, and it was perfect!! The prices were also great for NYC about 18-25 per plate. You will want to go eat here!!
