                                                    Food was very good, but I did ask if I should order the large or small option of a dish as I was having it as a main. Was told small would be plenty. When it arrived, it was tiny, had to order a second portion. Service was very chaotic, ordered a round of drinks and after 40 minutes and 3 times asking for an update, we just asked for the bill. Server had no recollection of even taking the order. One waiter was very nice and apologetic, the other (who took our drinks order) couldn’t have cared less. Overall was disappointed.

                                                    Food and cocktails portions small and tasteless - way overpriced. 9e for 2 sparkling waters - 13 e for the tobyest cocktail in Dublin. Service - 2 ladies very nice gentlemen were awful, no service - manager was abrupt and seemed absolutely like he didn’t want to be there - tapped on table and said “drinks” - just awful will never be back.

                                                    Service from the staff was excellent and the food was just ok. However value for money was very poor. Example. My son and I split a chateaubriand which was just shy of €100. The peppercorn sauce came in a thimblefull size dish that barely covered 2 of the 6 slices of the steak. We requested more of these and were individually charged for each of them.. This is not good and can be argued, is managed that way by design. Come on, a €100 euro pice of meat between two and we have to pay for the peppercorn sauce by portion!! The final bill for what I'd call casual dinning was way too much for a family of 4. I have visited here many times in the past, both in the main restaurant and the woodfired menu and cocktail bar... I wont be rushing back

                                                    I requested a nice table as I was meeting work colleagues who had travelled from outside of Dublin. I was given a table downstairs, end table close to the door. While it was a mild evening, you can smell cigarette smoke when sitting near the open door. The manager seemed to be in bad form snd we got poor service, not asked once how we were. Disappointed as we love Fade Street snd I felt it would be reliable to bring important colleagues to.

                                                    I booked Fade Str Social for my boyfriend's birthday dinner and was not disappointed. The staff were great from the moment we arrived, we were able to keep our reservation on the terrace as was covered and heated. There's a great atmosphere and staff were super helpful and made spot on food recommendations. They took note of my note and bought out a surprise birthday dessert which was really appreciated. Would definitely recommend, well priced food, good size portions and would come again next time I'm in Dublin.

                                                    Tasty food but small portions at very expensive prices. The Chateau Briand was well cooked but the sides were small and came as additional price. Biggest shock was €4:50 for sauce! Staff were lovely!

                                                    We've eaten here many times and always have a great time. The food and service are always excellent. The dishes are a great size for sharing or having as a meal, so you don't need to over order. Good drinks selection. Great for a girls night out or a date.

                                                    Front the front door greater to the manager, they make you feel they are doing you a favor by giving you a table, almost like it is a privilege for you to be there.

                                                    This is just a cocktail place, loud music, not possible to keep a conversation. Food was great, but not the vibe for food.

                                                    Food was good, steaks amazing but chips just far too salty. Also a cocktail that wasn't good and we sent it back. However nice ambience and made the extra effort for my husband's birthday which was a nice touch.

                                                    Our first visit; outstanding service. My daughter was a little unwell when we arrived; the staff, were amazing with her and really looked after her. A special thank you to Franco and Alex, who were so lovely. The food was fresh, beautifully prepared and tasted wonderful. We both had the bean stew, highly recommend. The atmosphere was fantastic. Overall food amazing, and the staff were ‘simply the best’. You have to visit; exceeded all expectations. Thank you so much. Andrea and Hannah.

                                                    Awful service, we are ignored on many occasions. We’re never give a menu until we asked for it. All the seats are far too low or the tables are far too high - tables are small also. ordered pizza and got given burnt pizza. Over priced drinks - generally felt it wasn’t worth the money.

                                                    Lovely venue, however, the service wasn’t great. We had no menus for 10 mins, the wrong food came to the table and it felt like the manager was trying to rush us throughout the whole evening. We had the Duck calzone, which didn’t work with the goats cheese. We wouldn’t recommend this at all. Overall rating of 2/10

                                                    Food was nice, service was very good, we were put into an empty section of the restaurant which was disappointing. I left a substantial tip without realizing there was a 10% service charge included. We were also charged for drinks we didn’t have. My fault for not scrutinizing the bill. (I shouldn’t really have to)
