Went for an early bird / pre-concert dinner on Saturday evening. Great food wine and service. The restaurant has a wonderful buzz about it. Our waitress very kindly presented me with a birthday 'cake' . We certainly left for the concert with a smile on our faces...

Thanks all.

Fantastic restaurant. Truly a few different experiences at this place. There is the restaurant inside on first floor, there is an outside tapas experience and then upstairs more of a bar atmosphere with the famous roof top experience.

The meats here are awesome you won't be disappointed. A truly well done performance of culinary delights.

We had already enjoyed the Tapas bar and decided to give the restaurant a go. Staff very pleasant throughour but didn't ask how everything was for us when clearing table. To me this is important. Apart from that, service was very good with a suitable break between courses. The menu was exciting and a good variety. The only problem I have here is that if something is on your menu you should not run out of it by 7pm on a Saturday night. We will return, had a very enjoyable night, but if I book for 7pm on a Saturday evening I would hope the wild boar was available next time.

I really love fade street social, the restaurant part especially. The one niggle that I had is that there is really not a lot of time between starters and mains which left little room to digest before the next course was put in front of us. I know there is a set time but there could of been more room in between to allow it to settle so we could of enjoyed the mains more. It was very very rushed. The service was incredible and the food is amazing

Fade Street Social is one of those places where the waiter won't let you touch your own bottle of wine. You're supposed to sit there being served, rather than enjoy yourself. I guess that's how they justify the premium prices.

The food was good, but no better than what's on offer in any number of restaurants in the locality at a fraction of the price.

Bottom line, it's expensive for what you get.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on 21 May 2017

My wife and I (50ish, US) visited on holiday in Ireland, having been recommended by a friend from Dublin. What a revelation! Local ingredients carefully chosen and artfully prepared to highlight the ingredient. Cliche, but not having been exposed to authentic Irish I was blown away by the subtlety of flavors. The wild boar loin was actually the least interesting course, which isn't to say it wasn't great. What really knocked me was the duck mousse with white beans. OMG. Our server Blazena was attentive without hovering. Having a drink in the bar upstairs Our bartender Maraure introduced us to a killer old fashioned recipe using a tobacco liqueur that was also amazing. Except that we were 25 years older than the average patron I felt right at home and would go again in a second.

Our second visit to Fade Street Social which has a fabulous atmosphere in the restaurant, serving really good wholesome food and wines. Service was first class which really impressed me, as the place was packed and on a Tuesday night. One gripe though... I do not like waiters refilling wine glasses without asking. The menu can look a bit complicated but our waiter explained it perfectly. Will be back sooner rather than later...

We were very disappointed in this restaurant. The food was average at best, and for the price, a very poor value. The flatbreads/pizzas were good, but the main courses were undercooked or overcooked and very bland.

Fade Street Social in Dublin is a great buzzy venue with great food, cocktails and particular good steaks and cuts of beef. Dublin is an expensive city - and so you won't get value here - but great for a complete night out if you have the budget. Would definitely recommend and would go back if given the chance. Great service too.

I visited this restaurant some 2 years ago when I was last in Dublin and it didn't disappoint the 2nd time around. We skipped starters and want straight for mains, which was very tasty and plentiful. Service was very good and we were not rushed to move even though they were clearly busy. A great evening. Thank you.

So disappointing. Ordered fillet steak medium/well done and it was rare. The desserts were very poor. My friends reactions to their €11 chocolate sphere dessert was 'is this all it is?' My friend's bannoffe dessert was just pure liquid that she said she could just pick up and drink. No texture at all. My pineapple dessert was incredibly basic and lacking any creativity or depth of flavour.
Overall the experience was very disappointing. With the prices that are charged we had expected a much higher standard of food. Tables are also placed much too close to each other.
