Fun atmosphere and concept. We had read lots of great reviews so perhaps expectations were too high --- or comparison from prior night's amazing dinner in Dublin made for a tough comparison. All was good - not great. The Heirloom Tomatoe & Burratta salad was fine and nicely presented but the tomatoes lacked typical heirloom flavor and the ribeye was average. We would return.

Food was amazing. Also good veggie options. Cocktails fab and good choice of unusual ones. Best service in any restaurant in a long time. Seemed to know what we needed without being asked. Pre theatre menu fab and good value. Would recommend, in fact not to be missed.

Food very good. Good variety of wines. We found nature wines and organiserad ones. The service was all right, but the staff was mostly running around. Sound level in the doning room was far to high.

The food and service was good but the pace itself very loud , i imagine ceilings need a different design to absorb noise. It really made the conversation in our table very difficult.

Food and service were top notch although I would have appreciated a bit more choice for the veggie options. Worth the trip for the wine alone! Looking forward to the next visit already.

Food was fantastic! The octopus and pork we had were both cooked perfectly. Nice atmosphere and interior decor. Would definitely recommend if pub food isn't your thing and you're looking for something a little nicer.

 (New Orleans)·Dined on 4 June 2017

The food was excellent, our server was informative, suggested wines, but the bus person removed food from some before all were finished. I would definitely go again, however there was a large group who were so loud, we could not hold a conversation at our table. I think they would benefit from carpeting or drapery to absorb some of the noise.

Its a long time since we've eaten at a lovely restaurant, everyone commented
on how good the food was, the staff were nice to us as well. We had a table
for 8.30pm & they did not put pressure on us to leave. The food was creative.
It may be a little pricey but I must say it was worth it. The atmosphere
was lovely again. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I dined with my sister at Fallon and she actually asked to go back there as her previous experience was simply outstanding. We ate pre theatre, which is powerful value and had a cocktail. Well done to all the staff for another pleasant evening and can't wait to return.

We booked online for a small confirmation party. What a fabulous evening we had. The staff were exceptional. They got the balance of being highly attentive with being obtrusive just perfect. The two children in the group were made to feel particularly welcome and their every need was catered for. The dessert with congratulations written on it was a really nice touch. It was not ordered - the only mention of it being a confirmation celebration was on the online booking. This was attention to detail of the highest order. Something simple for a restaurant to do and it went down a treat.
The food was gorgeous. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their selection. We will be back for sure.

Fabulous place. The food and the ambience was great, loved looking around the food hall and the wine cellar before and after eating our meal. We went for the pre theatre menu which we felt offered a good selection at good value. The only downside was that we didn't have more time to spend there as we were on a tight schedule but if we return to Dublin I'd go back to shop, eat and enjoy the wince cellar for a while longer.

The vegan menu (3 starters, 2 mains and 2 desserts) was inventive and interesting. Meals were beautifully presented and produce was fresh and high quality. All dishes we sampled were delicious. Service was outstanding. Cocktail list was unusual and the ones we tried were lovely.

Loved experience. Restraint was quite day we were there so hard to judge ambiance if busy. No music playing. Meal was good all happy but for the knickerbocker glory ice cream not much flavour and the honeycombed there was not much. Two or one pice in each. (Three ordered ). Loved the passion fruit custard.
Staff very friendly and attentive not too much either especially as room not busy. They could have hovered over us but didn't. Our group all went for burgers which all enjoyed one did feel burger was under done but then she had asked for medum was more like rare. Mine was similar but I like the rarer side. U can't always get that one right.
Did go to get the feeling overall as considering having a wedding here. Was disappointed by back stair case felt it needed more to make space pop like the front of house and stairs leading up to the restruant. Also disappointed that the function room shares toilet with that of restraunt meaning not totally private for guests. All said toilets are fab and nt a let down.
Love the trendy vibe overall and will be back to see it on a busier day. Thank you

Met a friend for lunch. Initially offered an unattractive table near the door to the kitchen. However given a much nicer table when requested. The whole experience was very enjoyable. Fortunately we had our meal before an extremely large party arrived. Service for our desserts and coffee was slower but the waiter was very attentive and we did not mind the wait. Overall a very enjoyable lunch.
