.

Old school Irish pub on the Upper East Side, with all the classic comfort foods. The fish & chips, hot open faced turkey sandwich, triple-decker turkey club, shepherd's pie, and the burger platter are some of our favorites.

It's the kind of place where the staff learns your name, and know what you like. My wife and I often don??t even need to order our drinks ?? the waitresses and bartender just bring them when we arrive. All too rare in NYC these days.

Tony, the owner, is a true gentleman - and he consistently hires good staff. Carol (the hostess), Bernie (the bartender) and Finola (a waitress) are some of our favorites.

Finnegan??s Wake is a real gem in the East 70's ?? don??t miss it!

My husband and iIhad been patrons at the Wake for nearly 25 years. Only once did we have a valid complaint about our food not being correctly cooked. Well we were blacklisted after that complaint and last night our "lippy" useless waitress Eva, would not address that our food once again was not cooked correctly without even looking at our food, and lashed out at my husband and I that we always complain about the way our steak is done. I have no idea how this waitress would know about a complaint that we had months ago. She said that I should look at the center of the steak and that would be the correct temperature of the steak. Nice explanation to a steak lover. She was quite rude as well as the functionless hostess Carol, who gets flustered easily and had no explanation but to speak to the owner Tony who was not there. I then asked for a doggy bag so I could make a "roast" out of it. We paid our bill and angrily left this establishment for good.
I cannot understand how and why we were disrespectfully treated at an establishment we have patroned for nearly 25 years. My only thought is that the owner is not present all the time as he was in the past, and has "simpletons" running the show for him. IT"S AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE !
