    The whole experience was simply amazing. We’re from the States and were looking for a nice steak dinner. Fallon & Byrne did not disappoint. Everything was absolutely delicious. The ambience was so nice. The waitstaff was attentive. We’re already thinking about if we can make it there one more time before we leave.

    Scallops m, pasta and gazpacho were very nice. The burger was a major key down. Literally just a burger with a bun as I choose no cheese. Nice enough taste but lack any jazz.

    We tried to get in on a Saturday night without a reservation and couldn’t so we made a reservation for a Monday. It was not very busy so the vibe was a bit quieter than we saw on the Saturday night. 4 of us had different starters and all were delicious. Breasola and feta our fave followed by gazpacho. Even the standard Caesar salad was elevated. The Rice tagliatelle pasta with burnt corn so light and full of flavour. I would eat here again and again. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable. I would eat there again and again.

    Unfortunately the starters on the early bird menu were not very impressive with little to choose from so we decided to leave them and go straight to main and have a dessert instead for our two courses. The mains were delicious, couldn't say a bad word about them, but unfortunately overall experience was poor. One of the waitresses tried to fill the glasses up to the brim with our red wine, we had to tell her to stop pouring. She also spilled it down the glass as she was pouring which such little care. Once we'd finished our mains they brought us over the dessert menu but no one came back to take the actual order and as we'd been sat there that long waiting we changed our mind and flagged someone down to simply order coffee. We managed to get the bill quickly but the final challenge was getting someone to come and take for it as we were paying by CC. We have been longstanding customers to Fallon and Byrne every time we visit Dublin on business (twice a year for two weeks each time) often going twice or even three times during these periods but I can honestly say this was not a pleasant experience on this occasion.
