This dueling piano bar has a good atmosphere, fun patrons, and good customer service. We have been down to the bar (near Union Square) a few times and have always had a good time. The dueling piano singers engage the crowd and it is easy

Went to Foley's on a Saturday night ready to get some good Irish pub food and some tasty beers. There was a short wait which we made go even faster by getting cocktails at the bar. I asked the Irish accented bartender for a good amber beer

Our first time there and we loved it. Great atmosphere, warm and friendly.\r
Awesome service and great selection on tap we've ever seen. If you're in the area check it out.

Great Irish pub with a fun atmosphere. We were there on a night where we saw a woman on stage - stopped to listen, and this deep voice came out of her mouth! Good times all around.

I like the vibe of this place. It's heavy on the after-work and tourist crowd. I wouldn't call it a place for singles or anything like that. Most people who go have their own groups. It's still enjoyable.

It's always really busy and sometimes hard to find seating. They have a great on-tap beer selection. They often have live music which is never that good or bad, but it can make it pretty loud in there.

Time for a Pint!

Been here plenty of days and I've never had a bad time. Food is great, service is dependant on the kind of person you are. It's Bad if you like waitstaff equal to flies (buzz, buzz, buzz), Average if you like waistaff to be checking in

Foley's Irish House is a warm place to have lunch (bowl of soup, brown bread and pint of Guinness). A week ago wife was attending a conference, I was wandering about taking in the sights. I had the above lunch twice during the week and

I was in town on a Sunday night and just wandered into this place while walking around Union Square looking for a good drink. It was pretty busy for a Sunday night according to the bartender but it was ok as me and my buddy were able to

Pros: the Beer, great Taps, decent appetizers

Cons: not a hot spot for the singles crowd

.

The times that I was there they had a Beatles cover band which can never be bad because the Beatles are the best band ever.
Good selection of beers on draft. Crazy on St Patricks day. (every place is crazy on St Patricks Day)

Not exactly authentic but quite good nonetheless. Murphy's a good drop on tap and the service was good - efficient yet unobtrusive bar staff.\r
If you're eating the bangers and mash were great.

If you have people to meet in the city or family in town, take them to this tourist bar. They are large enough to accomodate big parties and the food is decent. The drinks are decent and they pour a reasonably good pint of Guinness.

Went here one night when O'Reilly's kitchen was not working, and was pleasantly surprised. GREAT service, even though they were crowded, and the cottage pie was pretty good.

Johnny Foleys is representative of both the old and more modern Irish restaurant/pubs now found back home in Ireland. Upscale quality decor with a wonderful long, wooden bar with gleaming brass while still with that old Irish pub feel! The food is terrific, and while you get California cuisine and good old American standbys, you also get Irish favorites: Cottage Pie, Fish & Chips, Bangers & Mash, etc. The noise level can be high for talking while dining in certain areas, but the variety of nooks and crannies make it more enjoyable. Definitely a great place to meet your friends for a drink or enjoy lunch or dinner!

PROS: Great atmosphere and food
CONS: Noise level can be high at times

When John Foley's years ago, it was intended to be a REAL destination. On the top floor was a restaurant/bar space, and down a dark staircase, you were in a club with a few really great musicians. The thing was they only lined up the really great musicians the first month, and after that it fell apart. It's very centrally located to many of the tourist hotels--if you like tourists.

Terrible service, the manager does not care about patrons, only about control, would not recommend in the least to go back to this place.
