“Nice lunch”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

I frequently eat lunch at Langans because it is near my office, and I am always pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. The food is very good, especially the Irish dishes, and the hamburger and tuna aioli sandwiches are among my favorites. The service is excellent and I especially like that the restaurant is sufficiently quiet to have a conversation unlike neighboring places. It is also a fine place to watch a ball game on its many screens. Every guest I have aken had lauded Langans and said they'd like to return. It will return frequently. Also the prices are quite moderate for the neighborhood.

“Quick Late Evening Choice - Okay”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We came from Times Square looking for a place to eat after 10:00 pm and circled back to this pub. Our friends came late, were hungry, and we changed plans to find a place to eat for seven people. We soon discovered that the vocal members of the group were hungry (and thirsty) and impatient - Langans seemed to fit the bill from the street (and after 20 minutes of wandering aimlessly looking for "something interesting". They sat us on arrival and thankfully put us in the dining room away from the bar so we could talk. Our group, largely Italians from Italy, were unfamiliar with the menu but settled on what was recommended as typical Irish fare. The picked from across the menu including: a hamburger, fish and chips, shepherds pie, and a couple of corned beef dishes. The service was friendly and accommodating. The food satisfying but unremarkable. The bar seemed friendly and the live music a plus.

As a real fan of Irish Pub food (after numerous trips to Ireland), I was sorely disappointed in this place. Food was overpriced for the small servings (even for NYC...I've eaten at other NYC Irish Pubs and not had this complaint), and the Bangers and Mash were not the best that I've ever eaten. The Guinness was well poured and the ambiance was good. Service was sad. Not an Irish server in the place.

“Very Rude Staff”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Shocking service. We waited 20 minutes but nobody was interested in taking an order despite it being quiet.
We left having asked at the bar whether there was some special secret to getting some food.
This was met with a shrug.

“Does what it says on the tin!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

The food was OK though not great, as was the service though the owner/manager was a bit brusque. Watch out for the buffaloes wings. The waitress advised that they were slightly spicy - slightly????!!! They blew our heads off! To be fair when I commented on it they sent some out with some barbecue sauce instead.
There are better restaurants around but for a quick meal at a fair price It was OK
