Fade Street Social - The Gastro Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food really good but expensive for what u get. Service was excellent. Wine really good. Loved the gesture of the half price cocktail after food . There were 3 of us dining and got the option of sitting outside which was excellent because it was a beautiful day/evening on Tuesday and we weren't rushed off the table. The only downside which was extremely annoying was the 10 beggars who approached our table at different stages throughout the evening.
We ate from the Tapas Menu.
We've been in Fade St. Social Gastro Bar many times. It is a very nice place for a dinner with friends. The food was good. Although, not as good as it used to be. Music is a little bit too loud and food was served too quick - we have ordered 8 dishes for a party of 4 and everything arrived within 30 minutes.
Don't get me wrong this is still a very good restaurant. The dishes look amazing and they have nice selection of wines. Carpaccios are my favourites.
We had the best waitress. Cecilia. (Although everyone was amazing). But she was ours and you could not have had a nicer person. Always smiling and just naturally fun. We were eating at the bar and the pastry chef was so kind too. Feck everyone was great. We were trying to guess what (pastry chef) was putting on the desserts and she (very busy) was so nice and put us out of our argument and revealed the odd ingredient. (Thanks). I have been in this restaurant so many times and I am always assured of an amazing night. Thank you so much. STAFF AMAZEBALLS. FOOD =obviously amazing too.
A great experience in Fade Street Gastro Bar. This is a mini bites and sharing type menu, so perfect with family and pals! Each dish was delicious, fabulous flavours and presentation was super. While the table we were seated at was not the best in the room, the service was pretty good.
Wonderful selection of "tapas" style items. The server was very helpful in recommending options based on our selections so we ended up with a varied amount of items to eat. All were very good. Cocktails were tasty as well. Wine selections were good, a couple of us shared a carafe and got 2+ glasses each from it - excellent value compared to buying per glass.
Booked for business meal for 8 people, totally dis-interested and non attentive service, it was busy but that could not justify the service, when I asked for tapas to arrive so that each person had something to eat, I was advised that tapas are only served as they are ready, this meant that one dinner guest had to sit and watch most of the group eat, while they had no service, this single tapas eventually came to the table about 10 mins after everyone else had finished eating . Food was tasty but way over priced and very very poor value for money. Will not go back and was disappointed that I have selected this restaurant for mainly out of town business guests.
Food was pretty good but was a bit expensive for the portion size. The cocktails were also very good, but pricey. The restaurant was really loud, so it is not a good place for a romantic dinner or to have conversation. It was a bit like having dinner at a night club (it was a Friday night). The atmosphere is fun if you like that. My friends and I still enjoyed our experience overall.
Not bad, expect small portions for the tapas..nothing unusual there. Some very tasty ones but a couple of odd ones..chicken canapés were €9.50 for 3 of the smallest, thinnest slivers of food I have seen in my life, on a huge plate. No way you could justify a tenner for something so tiny. Good vibe, nice cocktails upstairs & reasonably priced.
All the food was very tasty and the services was fantastic. Some of the portions were too small, even for tapas and some portions were also overpriced. It is recommended to share 5 portions between 2 people, I would recommend 7 portions. Overall I enjoyed the experience.
We got a really good deal through The Taste.ie for tapas, wine and cocktails. The service was great and the food was quick hot and very tasty. The tapas menu has so many choices and the house wine was also very good. We retreated to the bar upstairs for our cocktails, was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening which gave it a good atmosphere and the cocktails were made to a very high standard. Would definitely recommend Fade Street Social for any occasion.
The food was great, but the energy of the staff and restaurant itself was far too energetic. I am pretty sure we were in and out of the restaurant within 30 minutes. We got 2 of our 5 dishes before we even got our drinks and the servers seemed a bit frantic. I am always down for a fun and energetic spot, but I felt like we couldn't enjoy our food b/c one server or another kept coming over asking if we were finished.
The truffled pasta was amazingly rich and delicious, and the hen egg was super interesting and I ended up scraping the sides of the dishes clean. Some of their dishes are incredibly rich while others have a much more subtle flavor. Having the mix of the two come out together really hampered the dishes with the more subtle flavors, which was too bad.
This is a really lively venue, so not for those seeking a quiet romantic setting - conversation and music both quite loud. I was alone and so was seated at the bar, which was fine because I got to see the dishes on the pass before going out which, if anything, made my choice even harder! Pretty much everything I had was delicious except for the chicken canape. I'd ordered this because I love babaganoush, but if there was any on the plate, I couldn't find it! It was basically some very small slices of fairly dry chicken breast on some thin toast :( I almost had the feeling the chef had forgotten to finish the dish off!
We happened upon this gem while starting our Irish vacation in Dublin. We were just looking for a good meal and happened upon one of the best meals ever. The menu was inventive and there didn't seem to be a bad choice. We were overjoyed by our selections. The locale was very busy on a beautiful Friday evening, and while the service wasn't the warmest ever, they were prompt and friendly. We were on the gastropub side and promptly booked for the restaurant side. Fabulous dining experience.
Love Fade Street. One of our dishes wasn't available, but it was only when we asked when was it going to arrive - were told we couldn't have it. Also server forgot beer and we had to ask twice for it. Apart from that, love Fade Street. Great cocktails upstairs after.
Great place! I've been to the Gastro Bar and restaurant several times now and it did not disappoint. Service has been a bit uneven, but the last time we were very well taken care of. Love the interior and it is smack in the middle of the city. Great, modern, delicious food, rich flavors and textures. Excellent wine and drinks. Great place either to hang out or celebrate a special occasion. Will recommend this and def be back.
