I HAD BEEN TO FADE STREET BEFORE THOUGH IF MEMORY SERVES ME WELL WE WERE ALSO WAITING A LONG TIME FOR OUR MAIN COURSE THEN AND THE WAITRESS FORGOT SOME SIDES AND THE STEAK WAS MEDIUM NOT MEDIUM RARE AS REQUESTED. THIS TIME WE ONLY ORDERED A MAIN , THE WAITER WAS VERY GOOD AND ATTENTIVE BUT THE FOOD TOOK ALMOST 35/40 MINUTES TO ARRIVE. THE FOOD WAS NICE BUT NOT ALL THAT FOR THE PRICE PAID

Happy to have tried Fade Street (big fan of Rustic). Been on the list for a while. Food was nice (heads up: lamb stew is very non-traditional). Service was outstanding. We were squeezed into a corner, however, right next to a 4-top. And they placed a wine ice bucket so close to my husband that his elbow hit it throughout our evening (he moved it and they moved it back). Not sure we’ll return. There are so many restaurants that serve the same quality of food but with an overall lovely experience. But I do appreciate the chef giving us an anniversary dessert I requested. Very nice.

Food was really good and the service was incredibly attentive. This was also one of the few places with quality food that was open on the later side. So glad we chose this as our final meal in Ireland.

We opted for the set menu. The selections were a nice change from the typical Dublin pub fare. My first course open mushroom ravioli was outstanding. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The large open room was “energetic” (I.e. a bit noisy for our taste). Good value, less expensive than we expect in NY.

This restaurant was chaotic!
We started the evening with a drink which was fine but after that it was down hill. The menu is suppose be for sharing but all they had was a few starters, a couple of salads and flatbread pizzas. The rest was meat selections and off the board meat selections. We ordered two appetizers to start and one was the sea trout. Instead of that they brought duck liver. Neither were very flavorable. I ordered the rib eye for my main dish which was too well done and was dripping in red sauce. Needless to say I left there still hungry. We went back to our hotel for dessert. It was definitely not worth it. There are so many delicious restaurants in Dublin don’t be tempted by this one!

As a coeliac i was not pleased to find that Fade Street Social does not adapt its menu to cater for coeliac dietary restrictions, which in this day and sge is expected, certainly in restaurants with this pedigree. Very disappointing choice as a result.

We had a really wonderful dining experience at Fade Street Social. We were there as a couple and we were able to enjoy each other's conversation but also benefit from the atmosphere created by other diners and staff. The food was exceptional with plenty of choice and the staff were more than capable of explaining the menu and making recommendations. After dining we enjoyed the spectacular choice of cocktails in the warm surrounding of the cocktail lounge and ended up staying much longer than we had intended too. Again, the staff in the lounge could not have been more friendly or helpful. We would highly recommend Fade Street Social to couples and groups.

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 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.
