Never disappoints. Fantastic food, the risotto was amazing. Kinder Bueno desert needs to be renamed - name doesn’t do it justice & might put someone off ordering this fantastic end to a truly great dinner.

Scallops were great, terrine of foie gras was unremarkable. Steak a little overdone, lamb was perfectly cooked and the accompanying gnocchi were spot on. Espresso martinis for desert which were bang average. I felt that everything was a little overpriced considering the many other quality restaurants in the area. It felt a little like a hotel restaurant vibe, somewhat impersonal. Nice room, good lighting. Overall: a pleasant evening but not worth the money.

Really nice experience, excellent attention to detail, asked if window open was too much, napkins refolded when partner went to the toilet etc. Service was excellent, staff seemed happy, noticed manager lady hug staff member. The food as expected lived up to expectations, simple enough, done well with quality ingredients. Loved the twist on Knickerbocker glory. We left the restaurant happy due to the food , ambience and attention to detail. We will be back for sure.

Fallon & Byrne is one of our favorite venues in Dublin City. We have been for lunch pre-theater & dinner & never disappointed. They have a wide choice to choose from which offers a fixed menu or A La Carte. The food is gorgeous & the staff are wonderful. The ambiance is very relaxing & the decor is old world. This is a great place for visitors to Ireland or locals alike. You won't be disappointed!!!!!

We went for the early bird option on a Wednesday, it was fairly quiet but still had a nice atmosphere. We were not rushed and were given a friendly service. My only downside was my main course and my friends main. She got a Cesar salad and it was basically a whole head of lettuce chopped into chunks with a bit of dressing. My main was a burger which was overcooked. Dessert however was the kinder Bueno and was fantastic . Mixed emotions with this restaurant don't think I'd be back

I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, however the service did not meet expectations. We had two incidents were the waiters dropped things onto us and we barely got an apology. We expected better standard of service as we were paying a higher price for our food than other restaurants .

Attended Fallon and Byrne for a birthday celebration . Was underwhelmed by the decor of the restaurant . Very dated considering it's such a well known restaurant..the tables are way too close together and our table itself was unstable and rocking . It's also too dark , I understand they are trying to set an ambience but I couldn't see my food even ..the food is nice but not good enough to return for. Our biggest issue was the staff . They were constantly coming over to us . We felt on edge constantly. Too many servers serving the same table. I don't think they realised how many times a server had already been over to us . Experience was a disappointed but the food was ok

My reservation was a surprise for my Husband’s birthday. I have severe food allergies and they were managed superbly by the team in the kitchen and by our waitress, without making a fuss. My food allergen free and delicious. We had a great night and we will certainly return. Thank you Fallon & Byrne for always getting my food right.

Very disappointed with my meal. I was expecting a lot more - but the food was very standard - something I could have made at home. The celeriac soup was completely tasteless, my Caesar salad was just fine. We both had fish for main course. It was tasty but nothing outstanding. White wine was very average and not chilled enough. The seating area is very squashed, it feels like you're on top of the people beside you and the waiters. Overall, would not recommend. Too expensive and doesn't deliver on what you would expect.
