                                                    €32 for an average sirloin steak with no chips / sauce included. Everything’s an extra fair to expensive for a family meal. Plus service charge included also.

                                                    Very disappointed. Food was good but portions small. Our table was awful and although the restaurant was fairly empty, they would not move us. Some of staff nice but generally a bit slap dash. Supposed to be a special family occasion for us and no feeling of that. And it was expensive. Hate to be so critical but really disappointed by it - last time I was there, was lovely - but a few years ago.

                                                    Really impressed with the Fade Street Woodfire. The food was excellent and innovative with really good selection for Vegan or Vegetarian diets. Super attention to detail and just the right amount of attention from very pleasant staff. Overall, a really lovely evening out where we felt safe and were well catered for!

                                                    I usually have a lovely experience here, having been a number of times in the restaurant, gastrobar and outdoor terrace upstairs (personal favourite). Booked a table for the terrace for a birthday dinner and was very disappointed to be sat out on the street where it was relatively quiet and unatmospheric. I don’t think it was made clear that we may have been seated there when booking the terrace. The food and service were ok and staff were friendly - just disappointed at the misunderstanding of where we were seated!

                                                    Great service and exquisite food. We ordered a few items because we couldn't choose. The flavors were out of this world and the food beautifully presented. It was more than just a meal, it was an experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special, memorable experience.

                                                    The service was absolutely shocking, painfully slow, waiting 20 minutes for our drinks, we ordered food and things we ordered didnt arrive we were still charged for them on our bill, there was 10 of us at a table but we were told that paying individually wasn't what they do but they reluctantly took each persons payment separately, they even lumped on service charge after all of that. I had originally booked the cocktail bar but they stuck us in the restaurant, I asked about this but they didn't seem to have a clue. A very conceited attitude in there, very casual and no rush to serve people waiting, Needless to say we won't be going back.

                                                    We were approached 4 times in less than 2 hours to tell us they need our table back soon. Once was after 45 minutes, the second time was after an hour 15 and we were told we only have 30 minutes left, we had 45 and the response from the staff when we corrected them was “oh yeah but still”. Then the third time was the SAME staff member saying “if we are ordering food we need to do it right now” otherwise we couldn’t because it will take time to prepare the food (which we understood but we were not planning on eating) and he was extremely condescending. The last time we were approached we had 10 minutes left and it was by a different staff member who we told we were fed up of being told to leave when we had 2 hours and had not yet reached it. She apologised and said they are just busy which is ridiculous because we had every right to stay for the duration of our booking as did everyone else. To make matters worse, the manager who we informed about this early in the evening was rude and cut across us when we were trying to explain that this is extremely frustrating. The tables to our left and right were there before we arrived and were not being moved along but we’re being served more drinks. Would absolutely not return as clearly they are only after money which unfortunately for them, we had to spend but never got the opportunity.

                                                    We didn't actually eat but the menu looked lovely! Drinks were lovely. The staff were accommodating but after being seated they weren't as friendly as you would hope.

                                                    The service was quite poor. Took them almost an hour to get the food served. There was a hair in the pizza.

                                                    We had a lovely Sunday late lunch, the server was a very lovely lady who made us feel welcome and not at all rushed. Nice atmosphere on the terrace upstairs, warm and out of the rain.

                                                    I spent my birthday here and we had a wonderful time. The only reason why i cant give 5stars for food is that my steak was still bloody which is not medium well to me. But my friends loved their food and drinks and that's the main thing. All in all, it still was a great experience.

The fish was literally jumped fresh from the sea onto my plate and the creme brulee was classic with amazing textures of orange throughout that I was happily transported to Seville. I look forward to another visit.

                                                    Excellent food - cannot emphasis how pleasantly surprised we were with the food and we had people with all kinds of food preferences in the group, great service - our main server was so attentive and friendly, but the vibe is weird... The furniture outside of clunky big leather chairs with dark wood tables feels outdated and the clientele are strange. New to Ireland, but is it a lot of Dublin huns? Is that a thing?

                                                    We had a lovely day and the staff were so attentive. My mother left her phone at the restaurant and they called me straight away to return it! Definitely be back again and the food was so tasty!

                                                    The waiter was lovely but I was very disappointed by the lack of options for those with dietary requirements such as lactose intolerance and vegetarian. The options I did have weren’t that great.
