Fade Street Social - The Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food is good but a bit on the heavy side. I ordered the duck foie gras and it needed toast points to accompany it. I also ordered the seared cod which came with bacon and its drippings over it. It was simply too much as it also was in a creamy pea mixture. I would still go back but perhaps order better.
The restaurant itself was really nice and the staff were lovely but the portions were too small. We ordered the t-bone lamb to share which cost 60 euro but I only had 3 mouthfuls of lamb... The sides it came with were lovely but we left hungry! Don't go here if you want value for money!
Amazing meal! The best of our whole trip to Ireland, and we ate in some pretty notable places from east to west. The food was outstanding, particularly the stews and charred cauliflower. Service was great as well. Nice wine list. It is quite a noisy place, so not the best for quiet conversation, but if you're looking for a vibrant social scene and fabulous food, this is it.
The food was divine. Prfobably the best food I've tasted in Ireland. Season veg and the cabbage as sides were phenomenal. The service was second to none. My only con on the evening was that the table was too small and cramped, I ended up dropping a flute glass due to lack of room wasting a very expensive glass of prosecco which was not replaced (but was cleaned promptly). Overall, I will be returning to this restaurant.
The food was very unique and perfectly prepared. Our teenage children have food allergies and they were very helpful. It was a great night out. Not inexpensive by any means but well worth it for a special night out. Highly recommended. (Try the braised rabbit!).
I made a reservation at Fade Street a week ago, in order to celebrate my 12th wedding anniversary with my husband. We flew to Dublin from the US on Thursday, along with five of our children and family members.
We enjoyed eating and drinking at Fade Street two years ago for our 10 year anniversary trip to Ireland, and I was very hopeful for a repeat of excellent food and service. Happily, my high expectations were met. I had the duck, and everyone else had various steaks. The duck was the highlight of the meal, and everyone sampled it. The side dishes were also thoroughly enjoyed and savored. Colcannon, browned cauliflower with hazelnuts, open-faced mushroom ravioli, new potatoes, and fresh peas and carrots were devoured by all.
The steaks were wonderful, with very satisfied customers.
I am looking forward to the time when I can return to Dublin for a third visit, perhaps in two more years, to see what The Fade Street chefs have on the menu then!
We had our 1st wedding anniversary at Fade Street. Unbelievable food, atmosphere and service. Staff were so friendly and were so efficient for the amount of tables they had to serve. The timing between courses was perfect. Would highly recommend to friend and family. It was also a lovely touch the staff bringing out a cake and candle to mark the occasion for us. Went for a few cocktails upstairs with some interesting selections, really good!
Our second visit and matched expectations from last time. As we had friends with us who had not been to restaurant before quite anxious if they would enjoy the experience, but didn't need to worry. We had a great evening all enjoyed the wonderful food and atmosphere. Also enjoyed cocktails after the meal!! Thanks for the experience will visit again when next in Dublin.
Hostess and servers were very swift and friendly. the menu was a bit confusing on how to order and what the prices and amounts of meat were. The Wild Boar was already sold out at 7:00 pm which leaves you to think that it wasn't available in the first place. The Oysters were delicious and their display beautiful. The Scallop was very good but the mashed potatoes it was served on tasted like instant mashed potatoes, grainy and pasty and it did not do anything to enhance the Scallop. The Flamme Kuchen, which was described as Pizza was very good, but you should not call it Pizza, because it is not! Seriously excellent was the leaves of pasta with mushrooms, delicious! We had the Croissant Bread Pudding and the Chocolate Sphere for desert. The Bread Pudding was a bit to custardy but the Chocolate Sphere was absolutely decadent and a joy and surprise to have it melt open to unveil the ice-cream inside of it. A great taste combination of chocolate and Mandarin, a wonderful end to a good dinner.
The noise level of the restaurant is extremely high and the music was not helping, all you could hear was the bass bang away annoyingly.
First member of staff at the table was very over powering and pushy. He never let us think or look at the menu for ourselves. Pushing for us to have champagne and steaks from the board. It was all overselling verging on rudeness and not allowing an space or time to read the menu in peace. The constant over pouring of wine to rush us to get another bothering us repeatedly was a pain. He never listened to our requests, my husband is a diabetic which we mentioned. Yet the veg was cooked in a sugary coating and his chips were covered in rIch sauce. I do a lot of travelling an eat out a lot, this restaurant was one of the my worst dining experience. After the meal we visited the winter garden as told at time of booking, we were entitled to a round of 1/2 price after drinks. At the bar I mentioned this to the bar staff who looked dismissive of the very idea. As we were about to leave the bar manager came over we then paid full price for 3 rounds of gin and tonics. He showed us to a table that was reserved but allowed us to have it. Maybe that was instead of the half price drinks! It was a weekend away so we sat an stayed an tried to make the best of a bad choice of restaurant on our behalf. I googled the best restaurants nearest to our hotel to visit, prior to our trip. There are loads of fantastic resturants in Dublin as we found out throughout our trip. Less over selling staff more relaxing and much better food. The staff at Fade Street need to take time to listen to the customer relax on the selling. I think if they take this on board customers would return. After speaking to locals afterwards who have been to this resturant, we were told they have tapas etc there as they are all aware of the over selling.
We went there for dinner on our last night in Dublin
The restaurant is very beautiful and the service is excellent; we ate two different starters (salmon e duck patè) and one main course (the duck breast with orange) that were amazing.
If you are in Dublin try it! It worth it!!
Thanks to Clothilde that was very very patient with us and did an excellent service!
First time to your restaurant and the overall experience was good. The food was very tasty (both the main and the desert), but we found the place over-crowded and noisy (the music could be barely heard). The tables were too close to each other, leaving little space for privacy; even the waiters had limited space to pass through the tables and serve. One of the things that we also didn't like was that the waitress brought us the check, without us asking for it. Talking about the check, we finally believe that 50 euros/person (one main dish + side + desert + one pint) is too expensive for what it was in overall. We have paid even bigger amounts in the past in other places, but we always had the feeling that it did worth every single cent. Please note that one of our hobbies, is to visit and discover new restaurants, hence we have a sense of comparison. Unfortunately in your case, we believe that it wasn't a good value for money and we would most probably not visit you again nor recommend you, for the above mentioned reasons.
We went for the early bird menu. I thought the starter was too big. By the end of the meal I was stuffed. would have been more enjoyable if the starter & dessert were smaller. too much food in one sitting (and as it's a set menu we tend to eat everything because it's paid for!)
Very busy and lively restaurant in a busy area of DUBLIN. Food was excellent and service friendly. Prices not cheap but place is very smart in a casual non pretentious way. Not for a quiet evening though..packed and noisy..tables placed close together..might be different on weekday evenings.
Very social atmosphere and loud. Great food and service. Recommend it for groups or if you would like it a bit less noisy maybe early / later hours for dinner. Not disappointed and happy to return. Try the blackened cauliflower with Parmesan and the greens side dish - very tasty!
This restaurant is very expensive for what you get. 18 euros for a cracker flat bread with minimal ingredients and 27 euros for a 250 gram piece of salmon with no sides is rediculous. Would not have been the case if the food had knocked our socks off, but was mediocre and lacked flavor.
