Very trendy restaurant but limited menu. We at in the main restaurant it was overpriced for what you got. €28 for a flatbread, flatbread was good but not worth the €€. Was very loud,

We searched online top restaurants and up popped Fade street. My daughter loves steak so i decided to go with that. The place looks Amazing we were very impressed. We were welcomed in and taken to our table. We booked for 9:45pm, which I appreciate is late.
Our server was Not Helpful, was disconnected and disinterested, we felt like we were keeping him back by our late booking(my assumption).
There was no vegetarian options and if you didn’t like bread or raw tuna there was little else to eat.
My daughter said it was the Best steak she ever had worldwide.
We Really enjoyed our desserts. Other staff were courteous and friendly.
I honestly expected more, more on the menu and the server could have taken more time to explain things when we asked also.
Our night was marred by poor staff and a limited menu. Your place is fantastic thou and the food we got was delicious.

The best restaurant experience in Dublin. We're serious -- we felt so welcomed, the food was beyond the beyond, the wine top notch, the desert 'to die for' - the salad had the best greens I may every have eaten in my life - and I am a salad aficionado ...my partner had lamb he described as "exquisite" -- I am a vegan and was in heaven there -- just the best.

My favourite venue in Dublin as it has everything: a rooftop terrace, cocktail bar, bistro and restaurant. Perfect for having a drink before heading down to the restaurant. The staff were lovely and obliging. The food is consistently delicious. It is a vibrant and therefore busy venue, but if it's a buzzing local atmosphere you are after it's just perfect. Book for an earlier dinner seating if you want to catch the best cuts of beef.

My husband and I didn't feel there was much on the menu for our preference. My husband didn't order a starter as there wasn't one he liked. We ordered chunky fries as a side and got bacon fries with truffle oil...but as we hadn't been there before, we just thought that's how they come. It was only when we got the bill, we realised we were given the wrong ones (which we didn't really like, as the truffle oil was overpowering). We found it over-priced and unfortunately won't be going back

The service was very good and the staff were lovely. In my opinion the food is very over rated and over priced, the food was ok, small portions but even the main courses such as streak for 35 euro comes with no side are all, it is extra and the quality wasn't better than other places I have been. The cocktails were very very nice and the location is very cool and creative so think it would be personal preference

Hi.. ive heard a lot of good things about the place in the past so i said ill call in.. very nice looking place etc.. but the fillet was over done and slightly tough after i had asked for it to be medium..there was no blood visible whatsoever... i told my friends about this the next day and that the foid in there has not being good for a while.. ill be going back to brassie 66... but glad i gave it a go..
I was asked how was my meal at one point half way though and i replied not great that its a little over done and he said ok very good.. i presumed he didnt hear me.. i think perhaps he was asking out of politness and didnt really want or expect to hear a complaint.. im an easy going guy so i just left it.. as over all the gentleman and the girl serbing us were nice
Ps i have never written a complaint/comment before and regret that i didnt take a photo so i could send you on the steak so you could see how over done it was..
Regards
Paul

The food was incredible. We had the flatbread to start, which were melt in the mouth heaven. For main there was a mix of meat dishes and vegetarian dishes with the potato croquettes and blackened cauliflower for sides. We ate so much we couldn't move. We just couldn't stop eating it was so good. We accompanied the meal with delicious gin cocktails and wine. For desert, a sane person would have passed after the volume of food consumed, but no. We had to try. Custard and the walnut cookie....totally worth it! Spectacular food. Faultless service. A really enjoyable evening.

The waiter did not approach our table neither when we had starters nor during the main meal in order to check whether everything was fine with food etc. Had to look for him in order to ask for some assistance.
Only heard this question from a Duty Manager who brought us the bill.

Quite disappointed!

Excellent staff who can strike a balance between being attentive and not stuffy or intrusive. The menu speaks for itself. A very professional uncomplicated menu with some amazing food choices. The food was outstanding with each course matching and surpassing the one before. Was a toss up between here and MPW and more than happy that we chose this restaurant. Can't speak more highly of my experience. Thanks

Pretty disappointed with the food in this place. The rib eye was incredibly tough, and definitely not worth the 36 euro I paid for it. I've frequently had better steak from Tesco.

My vegetarian partner was told the salads ordered as a large version would substitute for a main. What turned up was literally a bag of leaves tipped into a bowl, with 3 slices of carrot in it. Definitely not a main, one of the worst salads Ive ever seen, and not worth the price on the menu.

Chunky Chips and charred cauliflower were delicious, and the waiter was lovely.
Great service, but really sub-par food for the menu prices. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone and won't be going back.

Very friendly & attentive staff (as always in this building i.e. Tapas & Cocktail Bar etc). Excellent food. The scallops and duck liver were cooked perfectly. Our 500kg chateaubriand steak was cooked to perfection...in this case blue. Good wine list. Maybe a few more simple vegetable side dishes would be a nice balance to some of the richer one available but this is a very minor criticism & totally a personal preference. All the side dishes we did have were delicious.

I think they try to make fancy food but at the end, it is not good.
The mix of tastes don't make any sense (for example the oysters : with the untasty sauce and all the ice on top of it, you don't feel the taste of the oyster at the end and the sauce is not even good)
It is really expensive for what it is.

I can't fault food but it is expensive for what you get. We paid almost 90 euros for just the chateaubriand for 2. Waitress recommended a weight that was far too big and we both eat big portions. 2 seater tables are just so cramped and tiny and menus are enormous stiff leather ones...I could barely read it without knocking everything and sitting back form the table.
No starter, steak with sides and 1 dessert with a nice bottle of red wine was 200 euros without tip....not sure I'd be rushing back.

Mother’s Day meal, no mother’s day chocolates or €10 voucher was given to her.

I would appreciate if someone would follow up on this as this is the only reason I booked. Was to make my mother feel special, but I didn’t see anything special whatsoever, except for the glass of bubbly.

We regularly go to this restaurant and will continue to go back.
Food was very nice and its notable that when we return it is to the same staff which is nice to see. Unfortunately the staff upstairs in the bar area are not so nice and one was actually quite rude when we went for a drink after dinner. One thing I would comment on was the waiter accidentally spilt a full mug of coffee on my shoes and coat which I have had to get cleaned and yet we were still charged for the coffee, just something small.

One of the best restaurants in Dublin in terms of food quality. You can't go wrong no matter what you choose (although not vegetarian or vegan friendly place). On the contrary, service can be improved and tables are way too close to each other so you don't have any privacy, and it feels more as a fast food rather than fine dinning restaurant.
