    I would never eat here again. We tried not to be too off put by the flimsy bistro style table and chairs or the grease stained and dirty fingerprint touched paper menus but the food bore out our worst fears, nonetheless. The prawns Piri had zero piri or in fact any real additional flavour (but my husband said they were at least fresh albeit flavorless) as my superfood salad was so bad I sent it back to the kitchen remarking that I couldn’t eat it; it was basically a bunch of spinach’s leaves in lemon juice and oil and some quinoa sprinkled over it and perhaps four slithers of almond and two blueberries. It was the oddest salad I have ever been given and totally lacked culinary enthusiasm or skill. My husband told me much as he would have sent the food back himself, when the waitress took the plate she cast her eyes to the heavens as if the refusal to eat this was in any way unexpected. Service was without a smile, even before the salad went back and the choices on the menu were pitiful for a vegetarian, pescatarian or vegan (even the fish in batter has chorizo in the batter mix). We needed up leaving to find a restaurant with better ambience and menu. Botanical Restaurant at Dublin One had more the feel and scope of a perhaps middle of the road NHS hospital cafeteria.

    There were renovations taking part in a large area of the restaurant, so a big area was closed off with a temporary screen. The food was very disappointing and not up to the standard of previous visits. Service was good, although rose wine arrived without being chilled.

    The food was really good, though we had been hoping to order from the brunch menu. The service was quite slow, though all waiters were very pleasant. But we had to go up to the bar a few times to order more drinks or have our water topped up. The bottomless brunch is great value, even with slow service.

    If you are looking for a fancy restaurant to make a good impression on a first date, this isn't it. The decor is like a posh Rainforest Cafe, the music is radio hits and the other guests are arriving in flip-flops and joggers. However, if your date isn't pretentious and you are just looking for a cosy place with good vibes, good service and good food, then this should be on your list.

    The ambience of Botanical was calm and inviting. Service was also good and allowed us time to choose from the menu. The food was good, although it did smell of oil somewhat, mostly of the chips.

    It looked like the bookings were not checked after I made mine (few hours in advance) and the kitchen decided they would have closed earlier which is understandable, however, I was told that the kitchen closed at 21:00 (time of my bookinf) and took a while to be seated as the front of house had to agree to us being seated for dinner with the kitchen staff.

    Found the service very slow. A girl took our order but didn’t ask about drinks we had to ask her to come and take a drinks order. It was very slow to come to us -we had to ask a second time. The food was nice. We asked for a second drink and this did not come either - we had to ask a second time. We ordered a second glass of Sauvignon Blanc to be told after some time that they had none left. Bit odd for a bar to run out of wine. We then asked for the bill. The guy brought it over along with the card machine and just stood there. Did not ask if we were paying cash or card and just stood there. We asked him to come back as we wanted to check bill. It is a lovely place and food is nice but service is poor which is disappointing and according to other reviews I have read it’s an ongoing thing

    We booked for the bottomless cocktail deal. Fortunately for us the waiter gave us the main menu. We then had a 2 course meal and cocktails which were both amazing in quality and quantity. The staff were very understanding when they realised their mistake, needless to say we had a fantastic time.

    Myself and 4 friends booked for bottomless brunch a month in advance and rang to confirm the date and that the booking was for bottomless bunch. On arrival we were asked if we were there for brunch or bottomless brunch and subsequently given the bottomless brunch menus and brought to our table. A few minutes later a staff member came over and took back all of the menus saying they weren’t actually serving bottomless brunch on that day. There was no apology or sympathy for the miscommunication and the staff were blunt and rude leaving to us leaving altogether. We were extremely disappointed as we wouldn’t have gone there if we weren’t told on the phone that we could avail of the bottomless brunch offer on that specific day.

    Booked a table for 9pm via open table, but the chef was closing the kitchen at the time. I felt lucky they served us and allowed us to have a meal. I felt a little rushed but the food was nice and staff were friendly. I would definitely go again but an earlier time slot.

    Main and dessert was fantastic Starter not great, salad leaves tasted dry a d gone off. Quite a few menu items missing and out stock (pizzas, tiramisu) What we ordered for mains were lovely though Chicken Supreme and Rib Eye Steak Granny's Smith Apple Tarr perfect dessert at the end. Loved the decor of the restaurant and atmosphere. Minor criticism, the toilet for the restaurant is in the hotel lobby, when I found it the door was locked so needed to find a staff member to input a code, the code was then put in on the door handle which seemed odd but once inside the main bathroom you could lock that door meaning anyone inside could lock themselves in and stop anyone else from using the toilets

    Service is horrendous, had to flag down staff multiple times. They seated us and left us sitting there for 20 minutes before we physically got up and asked someone to take our drinks order, took another 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive. Loads of staff on but all standing around chatting to each other rather than paying attention to customers. Food was average, poached eggs were cooked all the way through and portions on the small side for the brunch menu. Weren't asked how everything was when paying (despite being visibly unhappy). Wont be back.

    The staff were lovely and accommodating but the service was extremely slow. We waited an hour for our starters to come, one of which was only a salad. The starters were decent enough and the house cocktail was nice. The main took about 20 minutes to come which isn't bad, but we had no drinks while we waited. No one came to check on our table to take our orders or refill our water. I felt the waiter was purposely avoiding eye contact. The mains were far from appetising. The beef was far too rare and chewy and the prawns in the seafood spaghetti were spongey. Overall we were very disappointed.

    Nice place with pleasant ambiance, however I wouldn't return until food gets better. Had the special menu, started with caprese which was good (focaccia too puffy for my taste), but really disappointed in the steak, which came white (wasn't asked how I like it either). Had tiramisu for dessert which was dry, unfortunately. My partner had the cheesecake, which had ice cream with ice crystals.

    We absolutely love the food, cocktails, décor & ambience in the Botanical. It has a real chill out vibe. One area that could be improved is the service. While the staff are friendly enough & we do appreciate that we dont feel rushed, theres just not enough attention paid to customers (ie. when you need another drink or when water needs to be replaced). We are looking forward to returning & I definitely recommend the Japanese Style Haddock, it’s delicious 😋

    I loved it here! One of the better value bottomless brunch experiences I’ve had! There was an initial delay with getting our first drink but they allowed us to stay a little longer to make up for it! The food was lovely but my only critique is that I had a veggie option and the portion size was tiny compared to the non veggie brunch! Was literally one slice of toast with some beans and an egg! Had to order a side with it to bulk it out a bit! The manager David came to chat to us and ask for feedback as we had experienced a delay with service when we first arrived which I thought was a really nice touch! The place itself is lovely and it had the nicest vibes, a proper little hidden gem! Will 100% be back to try out the bottomless supper!

    Food took a long time to arrive for a party of 4 at a time which certainly did not appear to be busy. Parts of each person's order arrived at various times. when eventually everyone's order was on the table it was not great at all, quite basic, bland, luke warm and overall, mediocre at best. First time here although the party of 4 work close by and certainly the last time for food.

    It was a very enjoyable experience, the food was delicious, the roast breast of chicken with the black rice was amazing! I would definitely have again. The waitresses were lovely and very attentive. However the bar man could have been better, he was more interested in chatting up a girl than serving myself and another gentleman that were at the bar. Thankfully one of the waitresses was there to do it for him. I can’t remember her name but she is from Argentina. Lovely girl. Overall I would give it a 9/10 and would most certainly return again. Compliments to the chef
