If they have the truffle pasta it's a must get but honestly everything we had was amazing from drinks all the way to dessert! Highly Highly recommend!

The best one was the chips, chicken popcorn tasted a little bit weird and the pork belly was too hard to chew...Drinks were really good!

If you like experiencing different and delicious food combinations then Fade Street Social needs to be on your todo list. Coming in small tapas style portions the menu when we went included asian, french, spanish and Irish influences. Also the cocktails were astounding. The place gets packed so make a reservation, and expect a bit of conversational noise. The service was friendly and had the slower pace you expect in Ireland.

The food was superb. We really enjoyed it, especially the pork belly and padron peppers. On the night they had a promotion - 2-4-1 tapas so the value was incredible

Food was average. We chose the early bird menu. We then needed to order extra dishes a la carte as the food was insufficient.
Service was forgetful.
CHECK YOUR BILL CAREFULLY. Drinks were added to the bill that were supposed to be included. I pointed this out and they then fixed the bill.

We were in Dublin for vacation, first night there we went to
Fade Street and it was amazing. So on our return to Dublin we didn’t even want to consider other options.
We arrived on time, took a while to get orders placed, first food came Out quickly but wasn’t very hot. Then a little more and we were all done except for my brother was still waiting for soft shell crabs. After flagging down waiter 2 times and same response that he would check, finally got them. Dessert was good.

Great venue for a sociable meal. Lots of atmosphere and very interesting tapas dishes. Some were great and some didn’t quite make it, but overall a good place for a meal out.

Too noisy, food really over priced, portion size too small and what was most upsetting in a restaurant the chefs were eating al the time and therefore touching and eating food whilst also preparing and serving it.
They probably don't think that customers nice this sort of thing or that it doesn't matter but it does!

Nice ambience, quite noisy but can still have a conversation if you're sitting at the counter. Interesting food choices. Pretty good selection for vegetarians. Big choice of interesting cocktails. Slightly pricey as the portions are very small but worth it for a special occasion.

An excellent eating experience, I have been to both restaurant and tapas bar.
Tapas is not the real experience as it more seated, order food focused but the food quality was excellent.
Noise levels way to high though.

Did not match the standard of our last visit. We felt rushed and thought the servers cleared away the plates etc far to quickly. on one occasion we had to tell the server it wasn't finished and not to take it aways,they apologised. The food as ever was fine. Didn't stay for after meal drinks. Will give the restaurant a go next time in Dublin.

Food and service was fantastic. We sat at the counter and the chef was talking to us when we had questions on what food he was preparing. Two servers gave us some recommendations on what to order and they did not disappoint. The mushrooms were amazing.

The food was good, the wine was nice. The table service was slightly above average but don’t expect your table to be ready at the time you booked it... The ambiance in the tapas bar is lively and fine for a friendly get together but wouldn’t recommend for those of harder hearing and not sure it would suit a first date.
