    Nice food, cocktails are tiny, massive ice cube in them so you get very little for €14 Waiter came over and asked us for our drink order we proceeded to order our drinks, 10 minutes later we were asked to leave our seats immediately as the table was needed, thought this was extremely bad form, wouldn’t of ordered a drink if I knew the table was needed so urgently.

    The restaurant ambiance is great as it feels like you are transported into another world. However, I felt slighted by the fact that we were seated in the very back of the restaurant (even though I made a reservation 5 days in advance) where we were not checked on often and could even feel the outside breeze. The food was great and large while the cocktail was ‘cute’ if a little small. Overall 4/5.

    Some points for improvement: - A pepper grinder filled with peppercorns and not salt (we all oversalted our food as a consequence); - Hollandaise sauce requires a distinct lemony note, which was absent from my eggs royale; - Greasy, unappetizing potato cake provided an unsatisfactory base for this dish; - A bit more friendliness from the hostess and waitstaff goes a long way!
    Café en SeineResponded on 18 February 2024
    I'm very sorry to hear about the disappointments you experienced during your visit to the Cafe en Seine. The issues you have highlighted, from the confusion with the pepper grinder to the lack of lemon zest in the hollandaise sauce and the quality of the potato cake, do not reflect the high culinary standards we strive to maintain. In addition, the level of service and warmth you received falls short of the welcoming atmosphere we pride ourselves on. Your feedback is invaluable and has been taken to heart. We are committed to using this as a learning opportunity to improve our food quality and service. Please be assured that the necessary steps will be taken to address these concerns with our team to ensure a more consistent and enjoyable experience for all our guests.

    Reconnaissance for our upcoming wedding but this is very much a bar/cafe with dining. What it does, it does very well but not suitable for our wedding. Fish and chips were "best I've ever had" and Cafe Bowl was yummy and very filling. Wine was excellent.
    Café en SeineResponded on 18 February 2024
    Thank you for your glowing five star review and for considering Cafe en Seine as a potential venue for your wedding celebrations. We're delighted to hear that the fish and chips won the title of "best I've ever had" from you, and that the Cafe Bowl hit the mark in terms of flavour and satisfaction. It's also great to know that our wine selection met your expectations. While the setting of our venue may not have been the ideal backdrop for your big day, we're delighted to have been part of your journey and that you enjoyed what we had to offer. At Cafe en Seine, our aim is to provide first class food and drink in a welcoming atmosphere, whatever the occasion.

    Always such a pleasure to eat in cafe en seine. I cannot emphasise enough how kind and attentive the staff are. My boyfriend and I went there for Valentines Day and we couldn’t have felt more looked after. It just never fails, one of my favourite spots in Dublin. Bit pricier than your average restaurant but nothing about this restaurant is average. 10/10.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant unfortunately. Having made a booking on a family's recommendation. On arrival we had to wait for the front if house to come out to meet us. We were then taken to our table along with the menus. Having chosen a starter of sour dough bread and my husband chose something ftom the specials menu, the waitress came Iver to say they had run outvif bread! I said I wouldn't have a starter then a couple of minutes later she returned to apologise once more to say the other starter we ordered was also unavailable!! At this point we then offered to pay for our water and said we would leave as this was not acceptable. I am really Disappointed that the manager didn't even bother to offer us an apology! What a bad experience!!
    Café en SeineResponded on 18 February 2024
    I'm very sorry to hear about your disappointing experience at Cafe en Seine. It is distressing to learn that your visit did not live up to the expectations of a family recommendation, from the moment you arrived and were kept waiting, to the unfortunate news of the unavailability of your chosen starters. This is certainly not the standard of service we aim to provide and we deeply regret the inconvenience this has caused you and your husband. The lack of an apology from management at the time is particularly concerning as we strive to address all guest concerns in a prompt and sensitive manner. Please know that your feedback is taken seriously and will be used to improve our service and communication.

    Fabulous food, friendly service but felt like we were eating in a nightclub. Music is too loud, if I had known that this was not a regular type of restaurant, I probably wouldn't have booked it. Not a venue for an intimate night. Food was fab. Perhaps have a secluded area for couples

We're all about serving fabulous food and making our guests feel welcome.

On the restaurant side of our venue, we adjust the music volume to lower levels throughout the night to accommodate those seeking a quieter atmosphere. We're delighted you found the food fabulous and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back and offer you an experience that is even more in tune with your preferences.

    I was greeted by a very unpleasant hostess on arrival. Food was nice and service inside the restaurant was super nice and efficient.
    Café en SeineResponded on 6 February 2024
    Thank you for your review. I'm glad the food hit the spot and that you found our service inside super nice and efficient - we love to hear that! But I'm really sorry about the rocky start with our hostess. That's not the kind of welcome we want to give anyone. We're on it, making sure everyone on our team is as welcoming as the atmosphere we pride ourselves on. Your feedback is a big help in keeping us on our toes. We look forward to showing you the warm welcome we're known for next time. Hope to see you soon.

    They changed the menu . Didn’t have the lovely burger or broccoli on the side. The new smash burger is not nice all mixed in with cheese, very little variety and gone up in prize from 18.95 to 22.95. Not even a bit of salad comes with it. I gave it back and got the whitefish (Hake ) dish and that was actually very nice. The staff really are so professional efficient and the service was next to none they were genuinely apologetic about the burger. We had been out there in November we come from the Midlands. We do love the atmosphere here. definitely the prices of drink a gun up it used to be 650 for a pint now it’s 720 and just in general. I can appreciate the costs of running a business . Still do love this place very much, but not sure when I come back for food . Wishing you the best of success for 2024

    Unfortunately our dining experience was hampered by the music which was much too loud in our opinion. It was difficult to chat over the noise.
    Café en SeineResponded on 6 February 2024
    Thank you for your feedback. Whilst we're delighted that you chose Cafe en Seine for your dining experience, we're sorry to hear that the music volume had a negative impact on your visit. Our aim is always to create a pleasant atmosphere that complements the dining experience, not detracts from it. We take your comments seriously and will consider them carefully when setting our music levels in the future, ensuring that they enhance rather than detract from the ability to chat and enjoy the company. We hope to welcome you back and provide a more balanced experience that fully meets your expectations. Your input is invaluable to us as we strive to improve.

    Going to this place since it first opened, stunning at the time and after the refurbishment even more stunning. Extremely friendly and forthcoming staff. Choices on the brunch menu interesting but not really my thing. Nevertheless I didn’t leave Café en Seine starving, it was a lovely Sunday noon brunch experience and the live music added the icing on the cake! Thank you!
    Café en SeineResponded on 8 February 2024

We look forward to your next visit, where we hope to turn this four-star experience into an undeniable five-star one. Thank you for making Cafe en Seine part of your Sunday.
