    Great venue for a bite and a pint. Friendly staff, tasty food and lovely ambiance. If the menu was expanded to include a curry or stir fry it would be perfect.

    Food was good, not great. Ribeye steak was ok, certainly not worth the price listed. There are places in Dublin you'd pay less and get a far better quality steak. Service was quite patchy, always left waiting for a drink considering the amount of staff on. Staff were lovely all the same. Far too pricey a place though for what you get compared to actual restaurants. This is a pub that serves food, with restaurant prices. Wouldn't be rushing back.

    Very tasty food, the prawns pil pil were lovely. The pistachio and pea purée with the cod and chips was very tasty. Wine also very nice. Lovely friendly service from Alan D. The perfect balance of a great waiter, hats off to him!

    Food v disappointing. Tasteless plaice and what tasted like frozen vegetables for 27 euro. I sent it back and had the seabass which was distinctly underwhelming. Bang Bang shrimp quite good. Frozen chips. V poor value for the prices.

    Lovely food in a nice setting. 2 of us had fresh cod and chips which was really good. Also had their chicken wings which had a nice level of heat to them. Its a really nice venue with friendly staff. It does get busy so it's worth booking a table

    Chicken wings are a must. The best I’ve ever had. The rib eye steak was very tasty. Keep in mind when ordering the wings there’s a small and a large, the large is huge. Feed 4/5 people sharing so definitely get the small wings if for one or two people.

    Great date night at the Blue Bar. Got the Dublin bay tacos and seafood chowder for starters. Tacos were small portions but lovely. Seafood chowder gorge too. Chicken wings and prawn linguine for mains, both were great. Large Chicken wing portion was soo large. Service was great! Give those waiters & waitresses a raise. Decorations & ambience nice too. Loved sitting at the high top tables next to the bar. Keep it up blue bar.

    Being going to blue bar now for a good few years , it's always been on the dear side but the food was always outstanding but shoe string frozen chips and a burger on a plate and charge 18 euros is outrageous and to put the salad that was meant to be on the burger on the plate to fill it up , then we had to wait a half hour for someone to take dessert menu and wait until we order to say you don't have vanilla ice cream , who doesn't have vanilla ice cream when most of your desserts have vanilla ice cream, we then had to wait another half hour for dessert to come, we were actually going to leave when it came . The young man that served us was a lovely and friendly young man but seemed to be looking after a lot of tables on his own . When booking I said it was my sons birthday it was actually his 21st and staff member even mentioned it , why ask if its a special occasion when booking if your going to ignore the fact , overall very disappointing and we won't be rushing back sorry to say
