very good food
very bad wine selection ( very low quality french wine for crazy prices)
did not like the fact that waiter strongly advised having starters instead of going direct to main courses as if we did not order starters , we would have to wait 45 minutes ...never heard that before anywhere else in the world
so we took starters ....

The Fallon & Byrne restaurant is a gem. Affable, attentive staff, great atmosphere, a small but excellent menu and a large and amazing wine list. A small drawback is the noise at peak times, but that's because the place is so popular. It's the place we go to for family occasions, farewells - any excuse. Floreat F&B!

Food was either raw or overcooked. 45 minutes between starter and mains. Generous with taking the items off the bill, but did effect the enjoyment somewhat.

Overall our experience was very good, however, it was a bit annoying that we had booked the pre-theatre menu for 6.45pm, we were told that there might be a question over whether we could have it or not when ordering at 6.50pm as the computer closed down at 7.00 pm for this particular menu????

Fallon and Byrne phoned me shortly after the Open Table reminder email arrived....the F&B staff member didn't seem to know about the remainder email and was quite uppity about it. Early bird menu very limited, hamburger...very high and therefore even more overcooked than necessary, desserts unappealing. Not rushing back.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant in central Dublin. Staff were very friendly and we felt well looked after from the moment we arrived. All the food was excellent and you could tell it was made with the freshest ingredients. Would definitely recommend the dessert cocktails to finish :-) We will definitely be back and next time I'll make sure we have time to explore the food hall as well.

Fallon and Byrne is a restaurant we look forward to dining at when In Dublin. We are uncertain that we shall return. The food was to a good standard, though not as memorable as before, but the wait of 20 minutes between the end of the first course and the main course was wholly unacceptable. Clearly, the kitchen 'forgot' us

This was the first time I brought my kids to Fallon & Byrne having been lots of times with groups, as a couple etc. They loved it. The kids menu was gorgeous and great value. They loved the kids cocktails and the delicious deserts.
As always for us the food was first class and the service brilliant.
Kids already want to go back!

A good restaurant, but running out of key featured menu items by 1930hrs on a Saturday night is not acceptable,--only one portion of duck left, no lamb T-bone, no veal for 2 and reasonable portions of beef all gone. Food we had was good, but fell short of our hopes.

Friendly staff , attentive without being intrusive. Excellent food, good portions without adding extras for the average appetite. Extensive wine list. Dessert menu limited. I am not a fan of fixed plinth type seating for this type of dining and would book a table with chairs (as opposed to plinth) on my next visit. I had rocket with strawberries and goats cheese starter and hake main course . My companion had the duck starter and ribeye steak. Both of us were very pleased with our choices (could possibly of had a bit more duck but delicious)

Really looking forward to dinner as had enjoyed wonderful meal there last year. Such a disappointment! Two of the party ordered lamb and one chicken. Lamb stringy and tasteless and chicken dry and over cooked. All food had been liberally dosed in salt and vegetables and sauce were inedible. No more special occasion meals, or any meals, for me at what had previously been such a great restaurant.

Myself and my wife had an excellent meal at this restaurant last Saturday evening. We selected the pre theatre menu and were not disappoined . The food was excellent and very good value. Our waiter was excellent and took the time to explain each dish on offer. The atmosphere in the restaurant was suberb. It was a busy night and all tables were full but the spacious layout of the restaurant meant that it was very cosy with no sense of overcrowding.
