    We were late for our pre theatre booking and the staff did everything to get us out the door on time for the show. The food was delicious, the pre theatre menu is excellent value and the staff are friendly and efficient. Love this place and will be back.

    Love this place for a pre- theatre dinner . Great cocktails and genuinely friendly staff. Best music playlist of any Dublin restaurant - the right vibe at the right volume. Starter of ham and manchego croquette was superb. There's a proper chef in the kitchen. Generous main course with veg sides just right. Quibble: My beef dish was very salty. I'm a low to no salt person and will make this known to servers next time. The will be a next time!

    Unfortunately, seems like we just stumbled upon a very bad night. Bland food, other than mushroom risotto. Very small portions for the price. After spending 300 euro for 4 people, still went home and had dinner after. Very disappointed.

    It was my first time in Charlotte Quay, and I’ll definitely return. The food was fabulous and the staff were wonderful. The only negative thing that I’ll say is that there wasn’t a whole lot of selection of main courses. I got the chicken and it was gorgeous, however you wouldn’t want to be a picky eater. Maybe throw a burger on there for the picky eaters :-) but all and all was great and will return again.

    Service wasn't great overall, and it began with my guests being told in a quite hostile manner to stay outside instead of meeting me at the bar while our table was being set up. When the bill came, we noticed that the service charge had been added to the bill through a handwritten note instead of being itemised in the receipt itself. As this was a company event to be expensed, I mentioned to the server that I was happy to pay the additional charge however, I would need it to be itemised as gratuity on the receipt. When I mentioned that, the staff got quite defensive and the supervisor in charge was brought to our table. To my surprised the situation escalated further. The supervisor mentioned they were not able to add the service charge to the receipt and that no one ever had brought that up before, that they are accustomed to handling even bigger groups and parties and that has never been an issue. This was all mention quite loudly and in the middle of the restaurant. In his remarks, the supervisor even implied I didn't want/could pay the service charge as a root cause of the issue, which was unacceptable. I mentioned I would not accept the handwritten note for the added gratuity unless they were incorporated to the receipt itself, which the solution given was to provide them with my email address (personal data) so they could send me an invoice the next day. The whole thing seemed very dodgy to be frank. And what I didn't appreciate was being belittled in front of my teammates at work event for questioning their practices and simply asking for a receipt that includes the gratuity. I also noticed a table not too far from us raising the same concerns as we were exiting. It was not a great experience, and I will not be returning or organising any company events in Charlotte Quay in the future.

    Overall a bad experience; table was beside the bakers' working station, they had the door open most of the time and it was pretty cold. Service not great and also, few minute before 7, 3 minutes after saying we don't want dessert we have been told that we need to clear the table as they have another booking from 7, basically less than 10 minutes after finishing our main course we have been told to leave. It was a pity, they knew we are going to the theatre and we would have left shortly anyway, all we wanted was to have a glass of wine after dinner; left the restaurant with a bad taste in my month, and felt like we have been to a very expensive canteen, eat, pay quite a lot and leave. Been there before with a larger group and I really liked it, but it seems that lately they have real issues with staff rudeness and service quality; unfortunately or not (obviously they don't care much) they lost me as a customer.

    Overall very happy with the visit and food. Service was attentive. The only feedback is speed of food preparation during the lunch. We had to wait significant amount of time for the main course, and had to take away deserts as some ppl on our party had to leave earlier. Our waiter was very helpful and did everything possible to help

    Food was amazing but waitress forgot our order, asked us to say it again and then forgot the side dish. Emailed to say it was for my boyfriends birthday so I thought they would know to bring out a dessert at the end (which I’d pay for) but they didn’t. Food and view is amazing and would recommend, just small little issues !
