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.

Very good (though also very small) scallop appetizer. Braised lamb and braised rabbit mains were excellent, with unusual sauces. Very large, attractive space that got quite noisy as the evening progressed.

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.

Despite the restaurant not being full, we were placed adjacent to the waiting staff area which was very disruptive for us and extremely noisey. The waitress was very abrupt and almost rude. Food was good.

Very stylish dining room and separate bar area.
Great food options with locally sourced ingredients.
Service was efficient but we also felt a little rushed like they wanted to turn over the table quickly. Put a little damper on the experience.

We went to Fade St for pre theatre dinner. Food was great. Service great. Had some changes in terms of numbers and they couldn't have been more patient. The location is perfect. Not inexpensive especially the wine list. Would definitely go again.

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!

Very nice location in the heart of Dublin and the in the middle of the party scene.
Excellent food, perfect wine selection - very friendly and very fast service.
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
hear each other.....

When I made the booking I didn't realise that I was booking the restaurant. I much prefer the bar as I find the restaurant expensive - a bit pretentious and limited in food choices.

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.

The food was gorgeous, atmosphere lively and service excellent.The noise level might be a little noisy for intimate conversations but we found it to be very buzzy. We would definitely recommend the cocktails, the selection was great and very well made.The only negative would be the tables being too close together, this was not a problem for us because we were seated at a four top table but we noticed that the two tops were not spaced far enough apart.

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.

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!
