The welcome and waiting staff were attentive, friendly, and had interesting conversation which meant our booking felt personable. The food was also first class. Thanks for a great experience!

Service excellent - every staff member knew the menu, the routine, when to step in and when to leave. No rush moving from bar to table, no pressure to leave, wine and water topped up at appropriate intervals not trying to sell more! Excellent food knowledge from all staff for 2 coeliacs in our party. Provided a heater beside the table when it was colder and removed it when restaurant was full again. Delicious food every course.

Brought a colleague and good supplier out to celebrate a fantastic year in business and the dinner couldn't have been nicer. My supplier from the Uk mentioned that he hadn't had as good a meal in god knows how long. he wouldn't have desert as he wanted the taste to linger.
Great to see the owner Dylan McGrath walking around keeping an eye on things......

Booked it as one of my favourite's...................

Lovely food and service was great, we mentioned at the end that one meal was overdone and without any further discussion they admitted fault and removed off the bill. Staff were all very warm, welcoming and engaging. Only slight mention would be the noise. Very loud dining room but it was Saturday in Dublin!

On our very last night in Dublin, we dined at Fade Street Social in the Creative Quarter, on the recommendation of our cab driver and we were not disappointed! The food is excellent, locally sourced and prepared/plated perfectly. The service was very good, and the decor and ambience were exceptional.
After 12 days of great restaurants split between London, Galway and Dublin, this was exactly the high note we wanted to end our trip. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, we loved every minute and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Went into Dublin for my Partners Birthday. Stayed in Brooks Hotel and then to Gaiety. This restaurant and meal was the highlight of the evening. We went in with an open mind and eventually decided to have the Early Bird menu with a very unusual tasting Rose wine. Unusual in a fantastic way! The meal from start to finish was a taste experience. The staff (Im soo sorry I didnt get names) from the lovely Irish guy who greeted us and took our order to the lovely girl from Donegal who so ably looked after us from then on. So friendly and obliging. Chef even cooked food especially for me minus garlic as Im allergic to it. What more can i say. Fabulous and will be back!! Afraid i didnt take photos.....too busy enjoying food and drink. Thank you.

Fade Street- it is what the reviews say that it is. It's a fabulous restaurant with fabulous service and fabulous food. So when in Dublin, make this place a "must stop." There are alot of great places to eat in Dublin - but in my opinion - this is the best!!!

Ate there on Friday night. We were squeezed into a table beside a group of people. We could hardly hear ourselves speak they were so loud and so close to us.
We ordered our food and requested a Dexter Steak to be cooked medium to well done. The steak alone cost 82 euro which was a steak to share.
The starter arrived and it was lovely. Then the main course arrived with the veg side order but the steak was no where near cooked enough and we had to send it back. neither of us could have eaten it it was so undercooked. They left the veg to get cold and then when the steak eventually arrived back they had forgotten the chips. In fact we had practically finished the meat by the time they arrived. Very poor service. They did give us the potato sides and one round of drinks free but it was ridiculously expensive for what we got and the service was so poor. Overall a very average to poor experience. We had reserved a table at the bar but cancelled it on our way out and no one even asked us why. Disappointed. My friend had travelled from the uk to see me for the weekend and I had hoped the meal would have lived up to alot more. Won't be going back.

We made a reservation for both the cocktail bar and for the restaurant. When we arrived only the restaurant booking was on the system. They managed to accommodate us for cocktails anyway after a bit of confusion at the front desk - which was great, however when we got to the restaurant we where waiting over an hour for our starter to arrive and another decent wait between courses. The waiter was very nice and the highlight was the wine and trout starter. However, overall an average experience, would not be rushing back.

Overall it is an excellent restaurant. On a Tuesday night the place was buzzing and atmosphere excellent. I would recommend it more for a group of more than four people rather than a couple. Menu is detailed and needs a bit of explaining - which the waiting staff were pleased to offer. It isn't cheap but given the quality, it is probably good value. Overall, I would recommend it for a group - perhaps less so for a couple.

I enjoyed a loves anniversary celebration here on Thursday night, we were created by a warm door staff who took us to out table in the back room which was full of buzz and great atmosphere. Our nortger Irish waitress who I unfortunately didnt get the name of was very kind on arrival and gave us some splendid recommendation on food and wine. At the end of dinner she brought us out a complimentary desert with congratulations written on it a very sweet gesture. The food was amazing service like clock work and experience memerable. I'll be sure to return.

All of the food was over cooked. The pork belly was one big piece of fat yet at the same time dried out. Even the roll that came with the lamb stew was dry. To top it off their cooling system was apparently sucking in cigarette smoke from outside so my throat was raw by the end of the meal.

Good atmosphere, very busy. Staff very friendly. However, flatbreads had to be sent back for reheating, disappointing! And reluctance from waiting staff to allow us order different veg options to suit our requirements. Had to stick to the menu, no altering, hmmm?!?! Expensive but knew that before we went - wouldn't mind the expense if it was worth it. Unfortunately we don't think it was completely worth it!

reservation absolutely required because the place was fully booked with 2 sessions that evening - overall a very nice place with - but...... it's very noisy and not suitetable for a romantic dinner for 2 - restaurant and bar, in both rooms we found a "loud crowd" and it was difficult to

Wonderful dinner, interior beautiful and the food was even better than we expected. Bacon and egg small salad was enough to share, delicious and well balanced. First time with Irish stew, which was good but the turbot was pretty incredible. Cooked well, with peas, bacon and truffle oil, it was a meal to remember. Highly recommend.
