Each person at our table thought their main course was bland and flavorless. We were also sitting upstairs, which as hot and stuffy. Overall, not a nice experience

One of the better dining experiences I’ve had in the D8 area in the last few years. Will be back.

It wasn't great, but it wasn't awful either. We had a table upstairs, which was very warm and stuffy. They needed the air conditioning on, or at least the windows to be opened.
Our order was taken promptly and the appetisers arrived quick enough, however there was a very long wait for ours mains to arrive. They were tasty, but nothing we couldn't make at home ourselves.
We never really saw any of the staff coming upstairs to check on tables and when someone finally did, my husband ordered a second drink... but it never arrived. When our plates were cleared and dessert menus offered, we opted for the bill. The waitress scobbed.

Camden Kitchen used to be a fab little place but it's really just average now with overpriced greasy and overcooked food. I'd give it a miss. There are much much better places in the neighbourhood.

Excellent and original food in a pleasant atmosphere - although the space is small, it is well laid out and you don't feel cramped. Very good value - just as good on this visit as on my two previous ones.

A first visit, chosen on the basis of other diners’ positive reviews. Unfortunately this dining experience did not live up to expectations generated. The waiting staff were helpful in finding another table, having asked to be moved from the allocated table nearest the kitchen. The starters were OK but the duck leg main course was spoiled by being served on a bed of mashed potatoe. The tables are too close for comfort, the prices are probably average for Dublin, but unfortunately nothing would tempt me to return.

This was my third time dining at Camden Kitchen since Christmas but this occasion wasn't as outstanding as the previous two. While the service was excellent and the food well up to the mark, the overall ambience of the restaurant was spoiled by the music being played, in my opinion. On previous visits, the background music had been very mellow and suited to the small space of the downstairs dining room, usually jazz or easy-on-the-ear pop classics. This time, however, the music was unidentifiable and definitely not mellow but, worst of all, it was played with far too much bass which is just not conducive to conversation nor digestion. I did mention this to one of the waiters about halfway through our meal and requested that the bass at least be toned downed. Unfortunately, my request was ignored, so my rating for the restaurant on this occasion must reflect this. I'm sure I'll return fairly soon to Camden Kitchen since their cuisine is among the best in that part of Dublin. However, if it turns out to be decibel-heavy once more, that will probably be my final visit.

Ending Christmas celebrations with family could not have been better on Saturday in Camden Kitchen. Lovely gesture to mark Nollaig na mBan with a choice of either a dessert or glass of Prosecco at no charge for the ladies in the group! Food was absolutely delicious & beautifully presented. Nice, neighborhood vibe in a city centre location. Thank you! Will be back.

Really lovely spot and perfect for a group meal. Was my first time here and the service was wonderful, the food menu was a bit limited (it was Christmas-season so as expected) so would like to come back another time of year to try more.

Camden Kitchen is the now the first place that pops to my mind when choosing a Dublin 2 dinner location - whether with small group of girlfriends or date night dinner - it’s never let me down! The menu is always spot on, great wine choices and friendly, but not intrusive hospitality just makes it my favourite spot.
