    Food was ok compared to another steakhouse we usually go (and remains top for us). Meat was good. Noise level was absurd…people shouting, couldn’t hear my partner talking at the table just sitting in front of me. Service (people) was fine. Wine meh…1kg tomhawk for 120€ doesn’t even come with sides. Probably would not go back, at least any time soon. Would prefer trying new place.

    Extremely alluring Instagram presence but lackluster in-person. Fade St. Social curates an impressive image on Instagram. That facade of decadent elegance began to crumble after we were seated. I initially request a Citra IPA but was served a cider instead. I repeated the requested beer order to our waiter again and was brought back a bottled Rye IPA. After the extended wait, I reluctantly accepted the delivered beverage. Kinda glad that I did, the beer was actually tasty. We ordered a caesar salad. This must be a new turn on a proverbial classic. The salad was merely romaine hearts with an uninspired dressing lacking flavor. The onion rings were actually very good. However, you’re only served five. Prior to being served my main entree, a serrated knife was placed to my left. I was a bit confounded by this delivery since every pork belly item I’ve ever ordered in the States had never required such a utensil. While the taste of the pork belly was solid, the overall tenderness was similar to a boiled chicken breast. At this price point Fade St. Social should only be enjoyed through Instagram. Back in the States the quality of service and food at this price wouldn’t be acceptable. The main dining room is extremely loud as well, killing any bit of romanticism one was hoping for.

    Fade Street Social restaurant is a central and trendy location. The menu is small, but the food is very tasty. The space is large and comfortable. On the evening that we were there, there appeared to be a work event happening close by, which increased the noise level. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our dinner at Fade Street Social.

    Food average at best. Barely tasted my Caesar Salad, but no one cared to ask about it. Halibut Fish was dry. String fries cold and never brought our onion rings. Wine glasses sat empty with no follow up from staff. Waitress seemed oblivious. Loved the overall vibe of the restaurant, but service and food was below average. Would not recommend.

    Food is below average. (Focaccia tastes like greasy spongecake). Fries are bland. Chateaubriand was dry. Was asked if I wanted some truffle over the steak when it was being served and I said yes, but only over some of it. So maybe 4/5 flakes of it max were sprinkled. When I got the bill I'd been charged 13.50 for it! Won't be returning

    Overall we found the food to be tasty. However, pricy for what it offers like all the main dishes served with no veggies or chips etc and another point is that this place is very noisy unfortunately.

    for me fade street social has somewhat faded. Food is still good, and service fine, but decor is very dated and slightly sad (all those empty wine racks on the walls!), noise level and ambience like that of a busy canteen. would not go again.

    I’ve been to Fade St Social a few times now and it’s my favourite restaurant in Dublin. Food is always incredible, great atmosphere and drinks are delicious. This was the rest of my friends’ first time here and they said it was the best meal they’d ever had. Service is usually fantastic although I think we had someone relatively new looking after us as there were a couple of hiccups, but this of course is to be expected and everyone has got to learn somehow! Nevertheless, another great meal and experience, thank you.

    The food here was good but the service was sub-par and the noise level was unbearable. We were here for a 7 pm weeknight dinner and really disliked the incessant, pounding, dance-club style music that was cranked up to an uncomfortable volume. We hurried through our meal and couldn’t get out fast enough. Really disappointing.

    Great venue, very buzzy atmosphere. Lovely oysters, soda bread, cocktails, wine and broccoli. The medium/ rare chateaubriand was a tad over cooked, with a considerable piece being well done. The aircon was also leaking into the restaurant which although not quite on us, was pretty close and distracting.

    The food was excellent, however the prices have increased massively over the past 2 - 3 months. The sides are very misleading, as the establishment adds a paper insert which reduces the bowl etc by half so therefore the quantity of sides reduces massively. Also, a circa 12% service charge adds massively to the bill, is this fee past out to the staff? Have ate here mandy times but may look elsewhere going forward, defo better value for money out there.

    No complaints about the food when we dined at Fade Street Social but probably not a good choice to bring visitors. The main dining room was crowded, loud and smelled strongly of smoke from the grill. Despite being warned ‘we need the table back in 1.45 to 2 hours’ we barely had time for 2 courses due to the slow service and could not have dessert. Staff were friendly but seemed over stretched.
