Don’t order the Irish stew. The 3 finger size pieces of steak may have been braised but not in my lifetime and then covered in a milk sauce to disguise the dried up offering. We were compensated but the moment had passed for another main meal replacement.
On the upside the ravioli was good.

The food was amazing and the meat was right cook. You could choose to go upstairs to continue the night. We didn't wait too much to order and star to eat the foods.

Drinks are amazing, best seafood we’ve had in a while. Very social ambiance, a little on the loud side but very enjoyable.

The place was nice but a little crowded almost. It was a bit too hot what with the huge oven type thing for the pizza. The food tasted delicious but the portions could have been bigger. There's not that much to choose from in terms of variety of dishes though. I got a really nice cocktail and they gave my mom some wine for Mothers day for free so they honour any promotions they make. Noise level was a bit high if you're in the lower level with the high ceiling so the sound carries quite a bit. Waiter was super nice and accommodating, quite funny with the way his voice kept breaking but he apologised for it which was cute. All in all a nice experience!

The service at Fade Street Social is exemplary. The staff are wonderfully professional and make sure guests are well cared for. Sadly the food on this visit did not meet this standard. We shared a bone-in ribeye for six and a variety of sides. The sides were well prepared and nicely presented and just not that interesting. The ribeye was also beautifully prepared and nicely presented sliced in a copper pan. Unfortunately it was served quite rare when it was supposed to be medium rare (you can’t send a plate of meat served for six back at a business dinner) and more unforgivable it simply wasn’t a good steak, it was tough and loaded with gristle. Just not a good experience.

Extreeemly loud. Service was quite absent. Porc chop was way overcooked - but we did not have to pay for it. Toilet situation is complicated (hidden). Definately not 5/7 ;)

Had a lovely night out for my partners birthday. Staff were lovely. But we’d to wait 30 mins on our table and then my Sides came 8 mins after my main arrived which was too late I’d already eaten the steak.
Great spot but really cramped and loud.

I really liked the ambiance and decor immediately upon arrival. The waiter was rushing us in ordering having put down menu, wine menu and cocktail menu and only allowing us a few minutes to look at these before asking us what we wanted. Ended up ordering wine per glass instead of bottle. The scallops starter was okay, not huge flavor and a bit of a dull presentation. My main course Halibut served with some kind of fennel and capers jus had no other taste than the salty flavor from the capers. The cauliflower side dish was cold. The new potatoes that my partner had with his salmon were raw and also not warm, his salmon was over cooked. Waiter didn’t really pay attention to the fact that we ran out of drinks. I was extremely disappointed was expecting a lot more from this restaurant.

We loved the food at Fade Street Social - fantastic flavours and each dish cooked with care, style and emphasis on great ingredients. For our first time in Dublin this was the best restaurant to start the experience in. It’s a big space with lots going on which suited us. Don’t go if you’re looking for an intimate dinner for two. The clue is in the name!

Food was lovely ridiculously expensive. Wasn't told that the table was only for two hours. For the prices you are charging this is unreasonable and very expensive for the portion size. I had lamb and got 6 small slices of lamb for €29. Lovely food but wouldn't recommend.

As we've been here a few times, we got used to really great food, but this time, unfortunately, it was mediocre at best. Menus remain more or less the same although the prices went up by 20% - 30%

On the other hand, the reason we kept coming back was the fact that service in Fade Street Social was one of the best we've ever received, and paying extra for that was something we were more than happy to do. This time, it was a service that you'd get in some local pub. It was alright but serving food over your head, taking my plate although I wasn't done and general clumsiness is not something you'd expect from a place like this one.

In the end, when offered to tip, our waiter rejected with the explanation that the restaurant makes enough and doesn't need a tip.

Overall, it became a mediocre place, not really worth their salt, and I don't think I'll be back here again.

We visited for my partners 25th Birthday during a trip to Dublin and couldn't have been more impressed. Everything we ordered was cooked amazingly and tasted delicious, we really were spoilt for choice, our waitress was delightful and helped recommend some drinks for us from their lengthy cocktail menu. Overall a brilliant experience and if we are ever in Dublin again we will be sure to call back for a second visit!

Had previously visited the Gastro pub next door. Didn’t realise it was multiple restaurants under one roof. Second visit to the establishment, definitely preferred the Gastro pub tapas menu. Food was nice, but wasn’t well seasoned. Had to add salt ourselves. Waitress was lovey and attentive. I would class the food as very “cheffy” lots of foams and presented very well. Looked nice, lacking punch! We are booked to return tomorrow to the gastropub. Probably won’t come back for the restaurant.

Hi,

I’m a regular at fade st. I always book through the OpenTable app.
I booked a table for valentines eve having read that there would be 2 menus available in two different price ranges.
Last night I was offered just one menu.
I am disappointed that you did this and had I known in advance it would have affected my restaurant choice.
Could you please address this? It feels like false advertising.

Sincerely,

Diarmaid
