    Food was good but service needed improvement. We were seated at 7 and had our water glasses filled immediately but then never saw a soul for 40 minutes. When we were finally able to flag down our server she seemed confused and could not answer questions about the menu and did not ask anyone else. She took our drink and app orders and we said we wanted to order dinner after we got our drinks. Again she looked confused and took our menus and walked away. Our apps came out quickly in fact way before our drinks. We finally got to order dinner. Food was good but would not recommend due to service and overall price.

    Café en SeineResponded 4 days ago
    Thank you for the feedback. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the desserts, but we're really sorry that your brunch experience didn't quite live up to your expectations. It's concerning to learn that you found the portions small and the flavours bland; this is certainly not the standard we strive for. We also take your comments about value for money seriously. It's important that our guests feel that their dining experience justifies the cost, and we apologise if we've missed the mark in achieving this balance. Your feedback is invaluable to us as it guides our ongoing efforts to improve our menu and service. We're determined to improve and hope you'll give us another chance to impress you with our brunch offerings, ensuring they are both satisfying in size and delightful in flavour

    Very poor value for money on food. I ordered pork tostados and a side of potatoe bravas to share. We were very hungry after that and quality was not good eg bravas were very oily.
    Café en SeineResponded 4 days ago
    Thank you for your feedback. I'm really sorry to hear that the pork tostadas and patatas bravas weren't up to scratch this time. Just so you know, the tostadas are actually a starter and the bravas are usually a crowd favourite. It's a shame that they seemed oily and didn't fill you up like they should have. We usually get pretty good comments on these dishes, so it's disappointing to hear they weren't up to scratch for you. We'll certainly look into this as it's important that everything on our menu is spot on. We'd love to have another chance to impress you, so if you're up for it, please drop us a line at alexander.kevlich@cafeenseine.ie or come back.

    The service and the food was great. But the band that were playing were very good but too loud. We asked for the speaker over our head to be turned off but they couldn't do that. So because of that we finished our meal and left. We had planned to stay for the afternoon drinking and chatting with friends. But that wasn't to be.

It's always our aim to ensure that every aspect of your visit is enjoyable. We sincerely regret that the volume of the live band detracted from your overall experience. Creating a lively yet comfortable atmosphere for all our guests is important to us and we're sorry that on this occasion the balance wasn't right for you and your friends. Your feedback regarding the inability to adjust the volume of the speaker directly above you is invaluable, and we'll be looking at ways to better manage sound levels throughout our venue to ensure everyone's comfort.

    I have a leg disability and requested a standard table because I can’t not bend my leg to sit at a high top table which I was seated at. It seemed to be a problem for the hostess seating my party. She did eventually put me at the bar area in a regular table. It became very loud and we had to end our meal early.
    Café en SeineResponded on 2 April 2024
    Thank you for your feedback and for bringing your experience to our attention. We apologise for any confusion or discomfort you may have experienced regarding seating due to your leg disability. At Cafe en Seine, while we strive to meet the needs of all our guests, our unique décor primarily includes high top tables in both the restaurant area, which are designed to complement the aesthetic and ambience of the venue. We understand that this may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with specific seating requirements, and we sincerely apologise for the oversight in not immediately finding a suitable alternative for you. The situation you describe with the hostess does not reflect our standard of service and we're looking into this to ensure better communication in the future.

    It was a few years since I last visited Dublin and this place was amongst my favourite memories of jazz music filling the floors from the white baby grand - so I was more than a little excited to see it had enjoyed a makeover and was once again a popular venue - everything flowed well from the booking to keeping us informed we never felt rushed - the timing between courses and drinks was just right and a special touch with the waiters singing happy birthday to my daughter - food was beautifully presented and tasted exquisite as did the cocktails - thank you to the team - still a fan x

    I felt extremely unwelcome. The first contact in the reception was uncomfortable, I will not lie Café en Siene is a beautiful place but none of my friends felt comfortable there, The service was a little troubled, especially the first waiter was arrogant, they changed our table twice between 2 to 5 o'clock.. In short I won't be back and neither will my friends.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and I'm very sorry to hear that your visit to Cafe en Seine was disappointing. Making every guest feel welcome is a cornerstone of our hospitality and it's disheartening to learn that we fell short of this with your group. Your initial discomfort at reception and the issues with our service, particularly the impression left by our staff, are concerning and not reflective of the high standards we strive to maintain. The situation with the table changes also sounds frustrating and we understand how this could affect your enjoyment of your time with us. We take your feedback seriously as it highlights important areas for us to improve.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're sorry to hear that your visit on St Patrick's Day, particularly on such a special occasion as your birthday, did not meet the high standards we strive to maintain. Offering a modified menu on busy holidays such as St Patrick's Day is intended to streamline service, but it's clear that this decision had a negative impact on your experience. We apologise that the offerings did not reflect the exceptional and unique dining experience we normally strive to provide. We're also sorry to hear that the special occasion of your birthday was not celebrated as it should have been. Celebrating our guests' special occasions is important to us and we missed an opportunity to make your day more memorable.

    Nice evening and lovely food but ruined at the end when they applied a standard service charge of 12.5% to the table and there was only 4 of us. When we raised this as it wasn’t noted in our booking the staff said there was nothing they could do as was just changed that weekend. The booking email I received said the service charge would only apply to tables of 6+. Totally not acceptable in my view to apply to bookings made under the old policy and I do think a standard service charge for a table of 4 is a bit much!!

    Thank you for sharing your experience and I'm really sorry to hear that the evening didn't end as wonderfully as it began. It's disappointing to hear about the confusion surrounding the service charge, especially given the discrepancy with the information provided at the time of your booking. We aim for transparency and consistency in all our communications and it seems that we have missed the mark on this occasion. I understand how the unexpected charge, especially when it is not in line with our previously communicated policy, could spoil an otherwise enjoyable visit. It was never our intention to cause discomfort or surprise in this way.

    Booked a table for 6 and highlighted that we were 6 adult men, I specifically requested a high stool table and also asked for a table with lots of space and we got a table that was suitable for 4 adults and not 6 grown men, so we were very cramped, so much so that one of the guest knocked over his pint all over the table. Service was so so, one of the party had to wait 10 min from ordering a pint to delivery.

    Food was okay, but the fries were over-salted and the service wasn’t great due to busyness. The main issue was the website claims there is no service charge unless you’re in a table of 6, they’ve recently changed this to apply to tables of 4 at 12.5%. It’s in size 2 font at the bottom of their menu but nowhere else - so buyer beware.

    Some waiters seemed inexperienced, didn't take used bottles/glasses even after ordering new drinks, guacamole seemed extremely overpriced for what was given, but the food was delicious

    Great place, efficient service, ordered a bottle of the cheapest rose which was OK - thought it would be nicer given the venue so a bit disappointing. Staff were great, food lovely.

    It is annoying to hear the manager many times swearing at staff who drop glass.

    Been before. Great food, spotty service this visit - we had to remind 3 different people to finally get our drinks after 25 minutes. And the frites came without aioli but was brought when asked for.
