Drury Buildings Ratings and Reviews
We ate here on 09/13. A different vibe, energy a look. The menu is limited but has some creative choices. The anchil island lamb was very nice and the hake was quite good. Service friendly and crisp. Our server offered a sample of wine based on my description of what I liked. Prices are reasonable for the quality.
I took friends from the USA for dinner and recommended some options for starters and mains....peach salad, buffalo mozzeralla and tomatoes and the truffle pasta....and all were very happy with the choices!
The Ripasso Red was a great choice with the food and the guests definitely enjoyed the evening!
The staff were attentive and courteous...the place has always been brilliant since opening almost 4 years ago!
Will definitely be back!
The bar and restaurant staff were professional, friendly and helpful.
We were a party of five and all enjoyed our choice of starters and main courses. We shared two desserts which were also fab. The only grip we have it the lack of wines under €30. The wine we had was delicious, but at €33 a bottle, (we had two bottles) it was one of the cheapest on the menu.
We enjoyed the evening a lot and have already recommended Drury Buildings to friends and colleagues.
We met friends from across Europe at Drury Buildings to show them how lovely good food in Ireland can be, and we weren't disappointed!
Starters, mains and dessert were all delicious- although I was sad that they didn't have the Campari cake, as this is a favourite from a previous visit.
Ambiance was relaxed and pleasant and the wait staff helpful and unobtrusive (a good thing in my book!).
A very nice meal.
The food was delicious and I had three courses. The service was superb and the staff were always on hand to refill our water and wine glasses. There was no long wait for the food and we were seated immediately after being offered a choice of table location. I will definitely be returning.
I'd only been for drinks in Drury Buildings before & had a great night then so was looking forward to going for dinner there. The restaurant is upstairs but the noise from the bar didn't travel. Food was delicious, staff were attentive and atmosphere was great. Only reason I marked down for service was an extra starter arrived when not ordered and we had to remind them of our coffee order.
Another fantastic evening at Drury Buildings - we booked for 6:30pm and opted for the pre-theatre menu. Everything was perfect for an evening meal with friends. The aperitif cocktails (1 Negroni and 2 Aperol Spritz) were expertly made. The starter of peach/ Parma ham/ ricotta was one of the nicest I've ever tasted and the main of crab linguine was also delicious. We shared a cheese plate for dessert having shared a bottle of wine over dinner. We then decided on a digestif and were able to move to the outdoor mezzanine area. Our waiters for the evening were fantastic - friendly but not intrusive. Overall, a great experience and I can't wait to come back again.
Really have to commend the staff here-fantastic. Sommelier completely charming, nice to be greeted at the door and waiting staff excellent too. Fabulous gin cocktail to start, followed by good charcuterie and an ok crab linguine. Loud buzzy place-be prepared for noise! Great spot for friends get together.
Great venue, great menu, great food - unfortunately heavily under-staffed. The service wasn't bad, because the staff were un-attentive but it was bad because the few staff available weren't able to sufficiently look after the amount of patrons in the restaurant. We waited 1.5hrs for our meal, from sitting down! Although the food was great, once it arrived - we didn't order desserts as by that stage it was very late.
Had a lovely lunch here on Saturday. Loved the decor and will definitely go back to try it for dinner. The mozzarella and tomato starter was particularly good. My friend is a veggie and loved
the risotto. We were a little disappointed in the rhubarb mousse.
Had a really enjoyable dinner here with a friend one Thursday night. The food and wine was delicious and the atmosphere of the restaurant was great. Will definitely return to taste some of the other options on the menu. Definitely a restaurant to try if you are looking for tasty, good quality food in the city centre!
The dervice here is really good. Atmosphere for a Friday evening was a bit slow until about 7.30 but then it really picked up. The starter menu had two options not available and the mains had no chicken. Plenty of seafood/ pasta options though. What we did order was good, but it's a tad expensive for casual dining.
