I was in Manhattan for a conference and this was the closest restaurant for lunch. I ordered scallops with risotto. It was amazing. I was also impressed that their menu has gluten sensitive options marked clearly throughout their menu, and substitutions are made to make even more of their menu gluten friendly.

Houlihans has consistently good food across the chain (in my experience). This one is no different. That said, the interior is so loud we were constantly repeating ourselves in a 70% full place. Prices are always a little higher than other casual dining places.

I really hate that I do not have a pic if the nasty looking food that was served to us for lunch. Poor presentation, our server treated us like we were at her home and not a public restaurant and to make things just unbelievable the manager was unprofessional. We have had bad service in the past but at least... More

Mini Donuts to go; yes please! We stopped for lunch. The food was good, but the service was slow. The table next to us did not have the dirty dishes cleared the entire time we were there. The restaurant and bar were not busy. In fact we sat in the bar because we waited to be seated and no one... More

Must have been in a deep kitchen depression back there today during a mid-afternoon visit. Fry cook way off kilter with oil that should have been out of there a few days ago. Fish & chips dead in the water, fish broken in half, but served anyway! Good slaw.. Absolutely nasty black bean appetizer. Don't hesitate to send things back... More

My friend and I stopped in late afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised to find they had a happy hour on a Sunday. They have many great selections for appetizers and cocktails. We had four appetizers (egg rolls,artichoke dip,mushrooms & lettuce wraps ) all were very delicious. Also tried their mandarin martini ,yummy! The chef Ryan even came out and asked... More

I am a local and highly recommend this place. Food and service are wonderful. It is the place I choose above all other local options when I want a nice and relaxing evening out. I not only enjoy it solo, but it's a top pick when I have others in the mix too because it's one of the few remaining... More

I hadn't been to this place for a long time, but recently my office moved to a building some 200 years from it, so I tried lunch: lightly breaded and nicely seasoned calimari; and a rich, tasty onion soup. The server, Dritta, was friendly and competent. I don't know anything to offer about dinner, but lunch was good, prompt, and... More

I've been to Houlihans locations before. I've always enjoyed my meal. No different here. I had the deconstructed pot pie. It was tasty. The service was good, the atmosphere is very nice. It's a chain restaurant so you know what you're going to get. I've never been blown away by these places but I'm rarely disappointed with the experience.

Good food, they have a variety of food and drinks. Service was excellent, will go again. We went early so had no trouble getting right in. When we left there was a wait.

Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original.
