We had a lovely meal with my sister and her family who were home from New York. The food was excellent and the staff were so helpful. Definitely will be back.

Good food and service. Seafood was a highlight, as was the bread served on the side. Nice atmosphere - bustling but not oppressively noisy. Only downside was that the tables for two were rather close together.

The atmosphere was lovely and the food was very good. The pre-theatre menu was very nice.
The waitstaff seemed a bit overwhelmed and made several errors. Overall very nice and would go in again.

We had a pre-theatre menu and the location was perfect for our show at Olympia Theatre. I totally recommend the rib-eye steak and also one of the desserts, they were all delicious. The staff is very friendly and the wine list has many good options. Will definitely go back.

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.

Fallon and Byrne is an amazing place, well worth a visit. The menu caters for everyone and drinks/cocktail menu is extensive. Please visit and they other branch in Dun Laoghaire is also amazing.When you have staff that stay loyal to a restaurant, that indicates a happy staff, which take pride in their work.
Well done.

Very nice food. Had the mullet ceviche for starter which was very tasty. Followed by the lamb, tender and perfectly cooked. The Spanish Garnacha to accompany it was superb. Service was prompt and efficient. A little delayed on the dessert but overall a nice experience. Will come again soon.

We were very disappointed having read such good reviews. The noise was truly deafening, and while our starters were very good, the entrees not so much. Roast chicken was very dry. Service was very slow, was 45 minutes or so between courses. We didn't stay for dessert, just had to get out of there.

I had been there a couple of times, but this time unfortunately the experience wasn't the best. My appetizer was made with shrimps that were really tasteless and the burger was way too dry. It was also extermely hot in the restaurant, which made it really difficult for us to stay there for longer than an hour. We kind of ate in a hurry because we couldn't stop sweating. Wine was good and salads were good. Bread was very tasty as well. Some good news for me, it wasn't crowded like in the last couple of times.

Attentive service and delicious food. Our group of six was traveling from Canada and F&B was recommended by the Rough Guide Ireland. We had a variety of entrees: hake, halibut, steak. Everything was done very nicely! Would definitely recommend.

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.

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.
