    I think I got my booking incorrect - I didn’t know there were two types of reservations (restaurant and woodfire), however when we asked to switch our request was accommodated by the staff and they were all very nice about it (some places wouldn’t allow that). It’s my 2nd time at fade street social and I will be back because staff is the best, the location and the place are class and food is lovely + they have the best desserts :)

    On arrival we had to wait 5-6 minutes at the door to be seated and coats to be hung. We were the first customers in the room hence the rating for ambience. Menu was disappointing with a very limited selection. I will be taking a break from Fade St Social.

    Delicious food. A particularly excellent vegetarian main course of celeriac. We also had an outstanding sea bream dish and steaks. All the food was of a very high standard. It's expensive to eat and drink here (wine is definitely expensive for what it is) but it is an experience.

    Prime location, booking process easy. Our flight was delayed and wanted to push back the time, but i didnt have a chance via the app, not even for a fee - a bit disappointing. Welcome was nice and genuine, our table was in a good location. Food was amazing, the drinks were ok, the beer felt a bit watery. What I was missing is the bit of extra touch. For the price I would have expected a bit of a special attention which was missing. But other than that, it was a good place for dinner and the food was - no doubt - extraordinary.

    No one at reception, big queue. Forgot to take coats. Left waiting for 5 minutes when at table before we had to call a waiter over. ‘Are yous alright?’ Eh water and a menu please. Cocktails to start to celebrate Anniversary - which he had notified them of - and asked for the wine to come with the mains. Reader: the wine came with the cocktails. Tables were uneven. No sauces with the meat. Not one check up during meal. When they took out mains…eventually…we never saw a desert menu. After 15 minutes we asked for the cheque and complained. Got a limoncello and hastily arranged ‘happy anniversary’ ice cream. Total cost before tip €172!!

    In a word, underwhelming. Food was decent as was the wine, but the restaurant itself seemed tired and a bit shoddy. The toilet seemed unhygienic with a tap that was clearly broken and had been for some time. It also didn't help that we were seated opposite said toilet so my wife got a view of someone leaving the toilet whilst zipping themselves up within 30 seconds of sitting down. A move of table did solve that problem at least. Expensive for what it is. We won't be returning.

    A big disappointment! Food ok, no ambience, no sense of occassion, too loud for a conversation. Felt like were on a conveyor belt. No vegetarian or vegan menu after checking by phone that there would be. Enormous bill after a rather unpleasant experience. It's a shame!

    First impressions were good Staff were polite friendly and efficient Not very busy at the time. On first view of menu initial thought was it was expensive Both of us ordered same starter and mains with additional sides...for the price of the sides they were less than generous...mushrooms tasted good, onion rings were dry and overcooked. RIib Eye was cooked to liking.

    Birthday dinner for two was exceptional at Fade Street. Attentive staff with delicious range of cocktails and gins to choose from. A dinner cooked to perfection - sirloin and ribeye served with a number of sides. When mentioned it was a birthday dinner we even had a special surprise with a lovely sing song! Would highly recommend! And I will defiantly be going again!

    The food was lovely, but we couldn't really enjoy our dinner due to the level of noise. The music wasn't overly loud, but a load group cackling in the corner drowned everything else out. Maybe some soft furnishings in the lower part of the restaurant to drown out noise. The other two parts of the restaurant looked to have a lovely quiet athmosphere.

    There were five of us. we were accommodated at a table for 4 plus a small additional table - which wobbled! The waitress fixed that with a beer mat - in traditional style. Nice atmosphere. Good service. Onion soup had a semi-hardboiled egg in the bowl which was a shock for one of the party - waiter accepted it had not been mentioned on the menu and removed it. Overall choice of food was very good - there were lots of things we could all have eaten. Generally I would say there was a tendency for things to be a tad too creamy and rich, e.g. the onion soup, the mousse accompanying the heritage pork loin..really felt I needed something to cut through. Had the cobbler - nice topping and icecream and creme but pieces of plum were rubbery and chewy. Overall good though and I'd like to go back!

    The host was exceptionally rude to me and my partner. He was annoyed that we had a voucher for dinner (which I received as a birthday gift). He was passive aggressive in his annoyance that the voucher was not printed out. He barely acknowledged us and walked all over me when I was trying to pay the bill - which was almost a €100. When we arrived at the restaurant he asked if he could take our coats and when we said yes just placed two hangers on the mantle piece and walked away without saying anything. Our first waiter in the bottom restaurant was also very rude. The night was marginally enjoyable due to the friendliness of our second waiter. Due to the host we will never eat at your restaurant again and we will also not recommend eating there either. Have a nice day.

    Overall the evening was average. We were sat at a table which was pretty tightly cramped, but the worst thing was that it was very uneven and wobbled a lot. Service was slow at times, especially waiting for starters to be cleared and to settle the bill. That’s normally fine but the place wasn’t that busy. Had ordered a rib eye steak cooked medium but it was definitely overdone. Other than that it was a nice evening
