I am a regular diner in this splendid restaurant and it continues to be my first choice when I want a relaxed meal with friends. This restaurant never disappoints! The food, service and ambience are first class. I highly recommend the Fallon and Byrne experience to any perceptive diner.

Lovely restaurant, great food, very attentive service. We both had steak and asked for fried onions although there were none on the menu. This was provided no problem. Very enjoyable occasion.

It was a business dinner and we found the steaks we had very good. Mine was medium rare with no blood and it was cooked exactly to my specifications. The steak was flavoursome and succulent. The pepper sauce that accompanied the steak was not too strong and fresh and light tasting. The mood of the restaurant was relaxing and yet lively. We weren't rushed and yet well attended to. I would definitely come back for my own private events etc.

Over from Scotland - celebrating a 21st and wanted a special meal without completely blowing the budget. F&B was perfect. Linen, lovely service, made to feel very welcome and valued. Food was excellent - soup really hot (always good). Really nice atmosphere in the restaurant and the set menu was very good value.

Perfect meal however the noise level was simply unbearable! Perhaps some drapes or carpeting would help absorb some of the noise level. I dined alone and was hoping to find a nice quiet place to enjoy a delicious meal. Not sure a quiet place exists in Dublin.

This restaurant was a big disappointment! It is billed as a place with wonderful food and even a wine cellar downstairs.

The service was weak, even prior to multiple tables each with 15 people at them.

Neither the waiter nor the head of the bar had a reasonable knowledge of the wine, which was quite surprising given the wine cellar downstairs.

The appetizer citrus fish was delicious. However, the ribeye steaks had no flavor at all.

The waitstaff barely stopped by to check in with us throughout the meal. At the end, one we had already finished dinner, a waitress did ask how everything was and offered to get something else, but that was already 20+ minutes after the food had arrived. Way too late to change.

I would not recommend this restaurant.

after reading good reviews I decided to book our last lunch in Dublin at Fallon & Byrne. A friendly greeting on arrival, wonderful choice on the menu and all delicious and customer service very good. It is a beautiful building and has a great bar area... but looks extremely tired everywhere. A lick of paint, some new lighting and a few added touches would make a huge difference. Overall a good find with great food shopping experience downstairs.

I would heartily recommend this restaurant as the quality of food and service is excellent. However for those on a tight budget, it is at the higher end of the cost spectrum - but still good value.

Visited on a Saturday night following a rugby match. Food was outstanding - beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Service was A1 too - the staff are very attentive without being intrusive - you don't even notice your drink being topped up. The nature of the room (big space, open plan, high ceiling) means it's quite lively and possibly a little loud at times, so it depends what you want in terms of atmosphere.

Overall, a top-notch evening and one I hope to repeat before long.

My husband and i wanted to try somewhere different as we spend a weekend in Dublin every couple of months or so. We both had Ribeye and both requested medium rare. It was medium to well done and not pink in the middle. It had no flavour and seemed to carry a lot of water, not juice. We were asked for our feedback and we were honest. The maitre d didn't charge us which was not expected however appreciated. Very disappointing to get such a poor steak especially in a place that prides itself in food and the sourcing of high quality food. Maybe the steak would have been nicer if it was not overcooked , not sure. It was very watery and the texture dry. The starters were very good, scallops and prosciutto.

My sister in law and I visited Fallon and Byrne pre theatre. We loved the room with simple timeless decor and furniture. I love tablecloths!! Loved the waiting staff, very attentive, not intrusive and well informed. The food was clean and fresh and delicious ! I would definitely come again, I love the location and knowing the food is as local and organic as can be is great and adds to my enjoyment of the meal. Orla and Anna.

Very loud and busy, waiter brought wrong order to the table 3 times, which was comical. Service staff very efficient but unfriendly, just going through the motions. Wine bucket kept in middle of the floor miles away to accommodate other surrounding tables....apparently there was a shortage of buckets. Food was lovely, ordered from the set menu, and good value, but wines steep for what they were. I wouldn't be in any hurry to return. But I will say girl at reception desk with blonde hair who showed us to your table was very nice and accommodating.

Took my parents here from out of town. Food was excellent and portions were good as well. Service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is located above a fantastic marketplace and the ambiance was beautiful. Only compliant, not a ton of beers on tap (they were going for a more craft brew vibe which is good too... I just really wanted a Smithwicks). Would absolutely recommend going for a nice start to the night or pre-theater dinner.

Service was very good - staff very friendly and efficient. We were so delighted with our starters - I had and excellent foie gras with pear. However mains were not up to that standard. We were recommended a side as mains were not v substantial. sauteed potatoes were terrible - stale greasy taste. I had turbot which was tasty but seemed as if under heat for too long and a bit dried out. Coffee was miles too bitter. Were it not for the lovely atmosphere and friendly staff I would not be recommending Fallon & Byrne
