    A cattle mart, the staff were more concerned with getting us out than if we were comfortable. Plates were cleared before the table was finished. Though they were still pushing for us to buy another bottle of wine, we were told to take a seat in the bar as they needed the table, Manager approached as we were paying our bill, without being asked he told us off, mentioning a 1 hour 45 mins window to eat our 3 course meal (first we had heard of it) One of us had to bring the remaining glass of wine up to the bar but there were no available seats just tables reserved for a hen with no signs on them. The manager downstairs already knew this as he had checked and then deliberately not told us. An expensive exercise in humiliation. The restaurant were more concerned with getting as much money out of all the customers as possible.

    We recently had the pleasure of experiencing Fade Street Social’s early evening menu, and it was nothing short of fantastic. Excellent food, priced at €39 for 3 courses I think it’s a great value in the center of Dublin. Service was friendly and attentive, we’ve got some good wine recommendations from Davorin. We'll definitely be back to explore their full menu soon!

    We reserved a table and were seated prompty by the very helpful front of house. It was fairly quiet inside. From there we waited 25 minutes with no service, no drinks menu, and no acknowledgement by any of the wait staff. We had no choice but to walk out, still hungry and very disappointed.

    Dining in the main restaurant was an exquisite experience. The tomahawk steak to share was a highlight, perfectly cooked and bursting with flavor. It's easily one of the best steakhouses in Dublin, offering impeccable service and unforgettable dishes.

    We were a group of 3 women in our mid 20s. Our server Giorgio was fantastic. Really looked after us, was friendly and very attentive. We really enjoyed our starters. I had the Duck and Chicken Liver Parfait priced at €15.50. Bit pricey for a starter but was justified by the taste. We all went for the 8oz Sirloin Steak served with chips and peppercorn sauce. The steak was €39 and overpriced in my opinion. We all asked for it to be cooked Medium-Well but was more like Medium. I would have preferred it to be cooked more but it was still tasty. Cocktails were all excellent and priced at €13.50. I think this price was appropriate. We liked the vibe of the place. It suits both couples and groups. The place was busy but comfortable. We all agreed that we would be back again.

    Food was tasty, attractive, and came out in decent time for how busy they were. I think they may have been overstaffed to the point of confusion, causing chaos and giving the appearance that they were understaffed and severely behind. We were delivered the wrong food at first, which is fine, just the wrong table, so ours came shortly after. Mid rare ribeye was very close to full rare, but they gladly rectified it. Value of price vs quality and taste of the meal was great. Odd scene. They had plenty of staff, but the confusion caused very sporadic visits to the table and a lot of tension between staff that was visible, and service was just ok due to this. Luckily we weren’t a needy table, but if you like attentiveness, you may want to go on a slower evening.

    Decent meal post-match (Ireland v Wales) after a disastrous one after the same fixture two years ago when we didn’t even get a main! Excellent if rather large black pudding starter. The lamb that followed could have been pinker. Skipped dessert particularly after that black puddling! Really good cocktails.

    Loved everything about this place! The food, the wine and the atmosphere. Our server was really helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The truffle cheese flatbread was amazing and the sirloin was cooked perfectly. We arrived a little early for our booking but the lovely girls on the front desk suggested a cocktail in the bar upstairs which didn’t disappoint! 🍸 We will definitely be back!

    Been many times to Fade St. particularly when going to the Theatre. We booked in for Early Bird, 2 Course €33 p.p. Had a Cocktail to start, Fade St. Whiskey Sour which was lovely but a very small glass, was expecting it in a tumbler, also couldn't taste the Whiskey. Staff lovely but service was a bit slow in that you had to ask a few times for something before it would arrive. Food gorgeous as usual. Very enjoyable.

    Our food was really nice, however, I think it is too expensive. Staff were lovely and attentive. We found dining area a little like a canteen and quite noisy although very clean. The bar upstairs was really nice with exceptional staff, Paul, Alicia (not sure if correct name) and waiter who was so funny. It is is extremely busy and I don't know how they manage, huge credit to them all. Thank you all so much.

    Every year my wife loves to celebrate her birthday in Fade street restaurant. We were a bit disappointed, we were expecting to sit in the restaurant and we can get the early bird menu but we were told the restaurant was closed on Sunday and the set menu is not available but it doesn’t say in your website. We love bringing our friends their for food and drinks but disappointed 😢

    Had work Christmas party there was very average and overpriced. I spent €7.5k on the work night for 40 people, nobody was overly impressed with it. But they gave me €100 voucher, only reason I went back. So the wife and I went there and they said the voucher was only worth €10 per person??? Even though it said nothing about that on the voucher. He said someone should've told me when I was given the voucher. Was fairly aggressive about it too. Food was below average again and staff weren’t very friendly. Only went again because of the voucher. Would NOT recommend. Think they're something special because Dylan McGrath was on TV.
