    Having booked a table for four we were offered bar seats ,four in a row at the deli counter! I refused and we were then given a table upstairs . The food was good but the tiny piece of Halibut for €34 with smashed potatoes was totally overpriced. Wine,as usual very good. Overall good ambiance,good wine but food overpriced.

    The food was good but the menu was limited and the prices were ridiculously high for the standard of the food. We went for a family occasion but we weren’t expecting such high prices for very ordinary food. Not somewhere we could recommend

    A bit out there in price but amazing food and lovely service. Would repeat. Word of advice: the courgette flowers aren’t a main dish and the buttermilk panacotta it’s a bit too sour for my taste with all that rhubarb on top. Best to book in advance as it seems to be always very busy.

    One of the worst customer's service I have ever experienced! Massive lack of care. We made a booking for a birthday dinner. We started with a few glasses of wine, some starters and asked about the main options. When we were ready to order our main (after all the wine and starters), they informed that the kitchen had been closed for 45 minutes. We also ordered a couple of glasses of wine that never arrived. Most places nearby were either closed or not up to standard. So overall, they RUINED a birthday celebration.

    ELY Wine Store – MaynoothResponded on 20 August 2022Hi Ana, I apologise your experience fell short of expectations. We understand your frustration and accept that this was a miscommunication on our part. By the time you were ready to order, unfortunately the oven was set to clean and all appliances off. We provided desserts and a round of drinks with our compliments on the night to apologise for the disappointment. We hope for the opportunity in the future to give you the full ELY experience and would love to welcome you back. Regards, ELY team

    We visited Ely on a busy Saturday afternoon. Three in our group. We had a reservation for the outdoor space. Seated quickly. We did have to wait a while to have orders taken but it was busy so we understood. Food took a little while to arrive, which was understandable as it was freshly made. However two of us had ordered gluten-free burgers (coeliac) and that both burgers would be completely plain (no dressing, cheese, salad etc). It was mentioned twice that they would be plain. Unfortunately both burgers then arrived with mayonnaise and cheese on them plus the usual salad. We were in a rush and couldn’t wait to send them back and have them recooked so we didn’t mention it at that point. I scraped as much of the mayonnaise etc as possible off the burgers. I was able to eat mine without issue but the child in our group ended up leaving most of hers behind. The third member of our group ordered fish which looked and apparently tasted really nice. When paying I was waiting to be asked how the meal was in order to just mention about the mix-up but I wasn’t asked which is why I am leaving this review. I’ve eaten in Ely before and really enjoyed the experience and I am sure I will do again in the future, despite this mixup with our meals.

    ELY Wine Store – MaynoothResponded on 20 August 2022Hi Jenny, many thanks for your valuable feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to point out where we can improve and will certainly take this on board moving forward. Apologies about the mix up with your food and not providing an opportunity to address the issue. We hope to see you again soon. - The ELY Team

    Service was excellent , our waitress was excellent - she chatted with us, and attended the table - just the right frequency. She recommended a lovely white wine - which I loved. Food was delicious ! The only small thing I would recommend - the chairs in the downstairs section are not comfortable. We love Ely - music and general ambiance in the place really adds to a night out.
