Had never visited here before and it was definitely the best tapas I’ve had in a long time!! Service was brilliant too, would highly recommend to try out
Very expensive with very little choice of dishes. Service was very good though.
I felt the food in Fade St. Social (tapas) wasn't so spectacular, but it was mediocre. Also the prices are pretty high for the tapas choices, and we felt like they weren't so special. The tuna dish that we ordered to share was cooked too much even though we asked for medium-rare. The ambiance wasn't so great either, as the tables are cramped up, and we were really close to our neighbours. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place.
Read good reviews and was exciting to eat here. Food was average and fairly bland considering the price I thought.
We got our food long before we got our drinks.
Service was poor and inattentive.
Sitting with on stools for the whole meal was uncomfortable.
Fairly disappointing to be honest
This was our 4th visit to Fade Street Social. We always head there when we travel to Dublin. This time we were quite disappointed. We arrived and we were drenched by the heavy rain, the young lady at reception straight away got us out of our wet coats and hung them up and got a blow heater to get them dried off. Fantastic - just what we had come to expect here.
Our Waiter was a great character (tall, dyed blonde hair) and very knowledgeable, again what we have come to expect from FSS.
Our disappointment was with some of our tapas.
Parmesan & onion puree skinny fries - don't waste your money. Once you eat the 4 fries on the top layer with the flavouring it's simply a portion of skinny fries.
Lobster Hogdog - tiny tiny tiny - all bread roll and the littlest bit of lobster topping. disappointing. Save your money.
Duck sharing plate approx 20euros - 5 tiny, thin slices of duck breast with a small skinny spring roll. Nothing special and tiny. Couldn't believe what we got for nearly 20euros. To be honest, it was pretentious and a disgrace that they thought that was acceptable.
Seasonal veg - was advised it was broccoli, delighted with that - however 3 small stems of long stem broccoli came out with a puree. My 2year old niece would eat more!
It's so disappointing when such a great place gets it so wrong. Its simply profit greed or pretentiousness or both.
Try the pork belly tapas, utterly delicious. The star of the show.
We were such Cheerleaders for FSS, we recommend it to everyone we know who is visiting Dublin. We will have to reconsider in the future now. Then again my opinion probably won't make many changes in their kitchen. We love to eat out and have ate all around the world and this is (WAS) our favourite. Such a shame.
Wasn't happy with the service, wrong order brought to table. Pretty bad table service by one particular waiter. Pushed against my wife without an apology.
Overall it was a great experience.
The food was incredible (except for the steak and tart dish, which was served cold and was very bland) and the service was great but slow (mainly due to a lack of waiters on such a busy day ([Mother's Day]). Love the ambience.
Very poor service to start then manager reassigned staff & massively improved the service & experience.
Great food. Food came out randomly and it took a while before receiving everything we ordered.
Overall, Fade Street was ok. We enjoyed our cocktails and some of the plates we had. We were disappointed to see the french fries come from an industrial bag of frozen fries and with the constant “upselling” from the servers. It missed the mark.
10 minutes to get a menu. 20 minutes to get our drinks. Didn't get everything we ordered and then got the bill including these items then brought the bill again but it hadn't been rectified. Some of food was only Luke warm too. Bad experience overall
Outstanding service. Outstanding food. Cocktails fab
Interesting food that was mostly a hit with some less successful. Good wine and great atmosphere.
would not pay full price for this food.... the service was extremely rushed and the food also lacked in presentation .... will not be going back
The place is really nice. I really love their concept: tapas bar, restaurant and cocktail bar everything combined in the same building. You can jump from one side to another.
The service is really good as well. The waiters are really attentive and they are really polite and helpful.
I was in the tapas bar and the cocktail bar, so I don't have any opinion about the restaurant.
The tapas bar was nice. I loved their open mode, showing the room everything they cooked.
In terms of the quality of the food, I think it's a bit overrated. we ordered 6 different tapas and only 1 of them was supreme for us. The rest was fine, but very expensive for what they offered.
We had two desserts and they were fine but the same, too expensive.
Regarding the cocktail bar I don't have many issues here. It's expensive but really comfortable. The services is really nice as well.
My overall feedback is that is a good place a bit overpriced in my opinion.
With those prices, I would not go there again for having dinner, since I can get other places with comparable courses and a lower prices. Anyway, the place deserves a visit.
Excellent food and cocktails upstairs, when in Dublin a must go venue!
Great food, but avoid the upstairs tapas room, insist on sitting downstairs...........the upstairs room is ajoined to the bar...the music is crazy loud, and the seats are really low, while the tables are regular height - really awkward seating position......... didnt make for a great evening..........
Really enjoyed our visit - food was fabulous. We were in the upstairs bar, which was quieter than downstairs (Better for conversation!). However, I feel there is a better more "buzzy" atmosphere downstairs. Service excellent.
Food was a bit on a small side but quite tasty. Menu looks like it's cheap enough, however, you have a buy a good few items to fill you up.
Lovely food. Cocktails were great. Little expensive for the amount of food you get but the food is very good.
Was a good night. A very lively place. Was very busy, to be expected on a Saturday night.
We ate at the Gastro bar, it was really delicious. Staff were very nice and attentive.
Food always very good here, interesting dishes with lots of flavour. Friendly service, a bit expensive but definitely worth a visit.
I really enjoyed our meal, and as always the service was great. There is a slight lack of vegetarian options which my friend struggled with but other than that it was great. The cocktails are also terrific and recommended
Great, but food a little disappointing for the cost. Portions aren't as shareable in terms of size as advertised!
Lovely meal in lovely surroundings, with two kids (8 and 7) - no issues, kid friendly! Staff helpful and pleasant, especially as we were originally booked at 7, but were accommodated to eat at 6 instead - all starving!!
Great food, best place for 2 is on the counter because you get to watch the prep chefs working in a line!
Very enjoyable visit and experience, will return soon
Amazing Cocktails. Our waitress was very friendly. Food was super tasty & really quick to arrive at our table after ordering. Everything cooked fresh. The donuts for dessert were unbelievable!
I would not dine at this restaurant again. The service was mediocre, the food was oily, and the chef was arrogant. However, the cocktails were amazing and I would happily drink at the cocktail bar again.
Lovely building, got a good well positioned table, but it was cold....This was during the very cold spell so maybe this is not usually an issue. Food and drink was great in tapas bar, possibly a bit on the expensive side though. Would like to return but probably will not due to the value
Fabulous as always. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great fun. Soft shell crab dish and prawn tempura is to die for!
We booked lunch here on New Years Day to celebrate a birthday but were disappointed with our decision. A lot of the menu choices were not available and no alternatives were offered. We had eaten here in the past but this occasion was disappointing.
Food was lovely and staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. A bit pricey, but for an occasional treat, I’d definitely recommend. We had tapas lunch, but will be back for dinner soon.
One main was late. Took off that main and desert. Fair.
As a solo diner I sat at the kitchen counter and watched the chefs produce one innovative tapas dish after another. Dishes orders came as they were ready, service was swift & the courteous staff took time to recommend & explain dishes as required. Will be recommending 😊
Great food, great service & great atmosphere. Will definitely be returning for more
We had a lovely meal, 7 siblings out for a Christmas get -together.
Two points to make - I had read up on the menus for Christmas on your website and had noted that there were two sharing menus, at €25 and €30. There was no mention of this when the menus were handed out. I asked the waitress about this and she then handed us menus which were priced at €45 (for the sharing meal). She then subsequently returned to inform us that, yes the sharing menus was indeed €30 and we then all chose that.
Is this not a bit confusing? One menu and options on your website and yet the waiting staff are not aware of it?
The other bad point was a mix up regarding gluten free issues regarding one of the guests. She is a coeliac and had discussed this with two of the waiters. Another waiter then placed a plate in front of her and she assumed she could eat it - it wasn't gluten free. Thankfully she didn't have a bad reaction.
Other than the above issues - the service was excellent and the food gorgeous.
Thank you. I had been in your restaurant before and will return.
Really enjoyable, great ambience and energy to the place. Should though highlight gluten free options!
Fantastic food and venue. We had a lovely waitress named Molly who went out of her way to suggest dishes, describe them and look after us.
100% recommend it to anyone.
