Very friendly and attentive staff who despite being very busy, provided us with great service. Our food was excellent and beautifully presented particularly the lamb belly starter. The location is one of the most picturesque in Dublin (especially when it's dark) as it overlooks the Grand Canal Dock.

From the minute myself and my husband walked into the restaurant, I immediately got good vibes. The music, the staffs energy, the environment, the views from the restaurant gave us such a feel good factor and the ideal place to celebrate our anniversary. We had only sat down and we were given a glass of bubbly, this really set the bar for the rest of the dining experience here. The food was exceptional, the staff were so friendly and we couldn't fault the service. I am ready booking my next reservation as I cannot wait to share my dining experience with others. Thank you Charlotte Quay for making our anniversary a special one.

A culinary amazing experience. It's different than where I usually go, the menu displays a good choice of starters that offers a great variety of choice (I recommend the raw tuna). The plates are very well presented and not overfilled which allowed me to take a starter and a main. Each element composing the dish has it's own characteristic taste which makes the dish so delicious. The panacotta had a herbal taste which was bay leaf, it was so yummy! The service was excellent and it's been a while since I have seen such a dedicated service, where the staff genuinely interact with the guest even when we are not regular. The service team was super professional and patient, they know their product very well and are able to suggest what is the best beverage to accompany the meal. (I really liked the cocktail with Mezcal and cucumber that was suggested)
The atmosphere was good and the view over the grand canal is splendid.
I highly recommend the Charlotte Quay.

Very friendly staff and good quality food. The option of small plates is a good choice to taste different things from the menu, which is very broad from starter to dessert. The spritz was very good and the coffee was a proper sized espresso :)

Excellent Food and presentation. Quite a variety of menu items. Service was nice, but we shouldn't be left to stack our own plates and set them to the side while we wait for our server. However, we are aware that many business are unstaffed, so we left a nice tip regardless. Server was very kind and knowledgeable, just the one small note towards clearing for the price of the restaurant and food. Beautiful location and easy to find parking in the area. Highly recommend.

Fantastic restaurant in one of the most architecturally modern and beautiful parts of Dublin, overlooking the stunning Marker Hotel and Bord Gais Theatre. Extremely welcoming and friendly staff. A stylish and exciting food menu well suited for adventurous eaters. Tantalising cocktail menu, and plenty of upbeat disco and 80s hits to keep your foot tapping. Great choice for parties of any kind.
