The food was absolutely amazing but the service was sub par. We were waiting for over 50 minutes for two steaks with no updates. From what we saw it looked like a lot of standing around from staff.

We went as table of 12 only to find a very limited menu available

Seems a bit strange that I would spend over a thousand euro yet treat worse than if I just came in with my partner and spent a hundred

Very very disappointing that we were not I formed as I would have booked a different restaurant

My girlfriend and I took another couple out with us for a nice dinner in our last night out in Dublin, this restaurant was amazing. We had to change our reservation through the day and they were very accommodating and well worth the value! Would highly recommend this place!

Absolutely outstanding food - the lamb skewers were the most tender we’ve ever had, while the prawns and steaks were also excellent! A great choice of wines, including a great Boschendaal Rose Garden rose. Excellent service, ambience just a touch noisy in the big main restaurant. Has to be one of Dublin’s best restaurants - a fab night enjoyed by all four of us!

Eaten here a few times, food and service is normally very good. It is quite a large restaurant and there can be quite a bit of noise but still fine for holding a conversation across the table, larger tables might struggle. Food is good and choice is reasonable.

Due to crazy traffic we arrived 20 mins late for our booking but they had kept our table - they do turn dinner tables over so it’s not a place you should plan sitting on afterwards for drinks. We had an early booking and ended up with being asked to be finished by a certain time, the staff were however very fast and efficient in service so we managed to get finished ahead.

Overall good but I would recommend booking later and arriving early.

One of my favourite venues. Fabulous steak as always though thought the bill was rather pricey in comparison to previous visits ?

We were a large group looking for a good steak and wine. The hostess at fire was great and very accommodating, especially in organising a birthday cake for one of our party at short notice! The waiter was a bit grumpy but it was quite warm in there (fire by name I guess) l. The food was delicious and pretty good value for the quality we got. The setting is spectacular and despite being such a large space and having lots going on it was very easy to chat to each other without being drowned out by background noise. Would definitely recommend Fire and will be looking forward to going back myself soon.

I thought the food was overpriced and certainly didnt represent good value .
The meal while nicely presented lacked taste.
The restaurant was very noisy

Great food. Great atmosphere - only criticism is have I'd that it was a little warm. More air conditioning would be good. Overall great evening out and good value also.

You would expect a restaurant of this renown to pay heed to an alcohol allergy when informed of it but alas no and my wife had an upset stomach for the evening. Also this might seem petty but I sort of like to have a tip acknowledged with a thank you , all I got was an enquiry if I'd like to have my Fire Gold card back to use again. As it turns out I should have said no.

We absolutely loved Fire. From the time we went in the service was super, the atmosphere was great and the food was outstanding. We got steaks that were cooked perfectly and the wait wasn’t long at all. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone.

Excellent service, requested at a table outside as weather was nice, this was provided, also a lovely touch with the dessert as it was our wedding anniversary and they brought out shared dessert with happy anniversary on it which was a nice touch and excellent attention to detail..great value for money as well.

Ordened the steak recomended by the waiter, and the meat was nice- but everything that came with it was average and could have been served anywhere. Bearnessauce was cold and served as butter. Peppersauce was perfect.
Red wine was to warm but we asked for a wine cooler. After we had the food no one were nearby intim one hour later egen we asked for coffee and the bill.
Will not go back or reccomend it, but the area was great!

Sitting at a large table and waiter mixed up our steaks. Dessert was fair, strawberries were not fresh, looked and tasted like they were from a can and full of syrup. Disappointing. Venue is beautiful.

A family day out, personally I like flavour in food but this meal was lacking. My 5 year old commented that the pasta sauce was “boring” and lunch that day in Carlucio’s was much nicer

Most enjoyable evening. Nice bar area downstairs, comfortable place to wait. Very pleasant staff down here and in the restaurant. Our waitress, Sadhbh, was excellent. Chatty without being intrusive, made helpful suggestions about the menu and her recommendations were spot on. The service was efficient, the food was delicious. Lovely rack of lamb, extremely tasty steaks......
We look forward to a return visit.

This was my 5th time here, the service is always great. We were greeted well and brought to our table well. The table I was really disappointed with, it was at the back in a corner and had to jump over my husbands seat to get in or out. The food was nice except for the steak. I got the sirloin and was cooked well but was extremely grisly so could only eat half of it, ( my husband ate the rest) . This was disappointing as iv ordered this before and has been perfect. For this reason I thought the value was poor and also 5.50 for still water for the table is ridiculous.
