                                                      The food was excellent. However, we had a 9pm reservation (that is all that they had available) and the wait staff was literally cleaning up the restaurant for closing while we were dining. I don’t mean just wiping down a table, they were getting ready to close. Very distracting and felt unwelcoming

                                                      Food was fantastic! Only criticism was our glasses at a table of 5 people were never lifted so there was quite a collection by the end of the meal!

                                                      Early bird menu good value but food not very tasty. Starter salad was bland and no seasoning.

                                                      Service was friendly and the wine was lovely but unfortunately the food was a disappointment and I found it overpriced when comparing the value and quality. The prawn and salmon starter had only 1 single prawn in it, small piece of smoked salmon and a small piece of salmon that smelled so fishy I was afraid it might have gone off and did not eat it. For the price of 14€, I did not feel like I got value for my money. My partner had the steak (30€) and was quite disappointed with the quality of the meat and the flavours. I had the beef (19.50€), and we both agreed it was nicer than the steak, however, the portion was mainly mash with not much sauce at all. You can find same quality portions (beef/stew/mash) in Galway for about 15€. Overall the experience was nice, we would have expected the quality of the food to be a lot better though considering the prices.

                                                      On our 1st night in Galway, with our granddaughter, we decided to eat at someplace special. We were not disappointed. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. If we were staying longer we would definitely have gone back. Our granddaughter ordered the salmon, my husband ordered the fish and chips and I ordered the gnocchi. They shared a bottle of Pinot Noir (The Edge) and loved it. Not a drop was left. My granddaughter and I split the beetroot salad for our appetizer. I will repeat, everything was delicious.

                                                      The service was exceptional. The food was different than we have had in other places in a very good way. We ordered regular restaurant food and were served new versions of dishes served in most establishments. I would be happy to send anyone to you. It has been some time since I was as impressed.

                                                      Good food and drinks. Had to ask multiple times for server to bring items but it lent to casual dining that we enjoyed.

                                                      I booked dinner online as requested and looked at both menus available on website. The Oyster Bar was not an option to book online. And the menu on the night was Al A Carte, which did not match the advertisement on website.

                                                      My partner and I ate dinner here yesterday evening and I absolutely loved it. I don’t eat meat only fish and I find I am usually stuck for things to pick from menus in most restaurants but I had at least 3 options from starters and mains. Quality of food really was outstanding. Waiting staff were great, very attentive and observant to give you the best service, the Hardiman is now my favourite place to eat in Galway. Also my partner is a chef and can be hard pleased and a hard critic but I have to say I couldn’t fault this place. Good location also with lots of parking nearby.

                                                      The food is excellent, very much enjoyed all our mains and desserts. Our server Colm was fantastic and was very attentive. However once we had eaten another girl served us and was very forgetful and unhelpful. She forgot our drinks order twice and we had to ask for water several times. This didn't put us off though, we would visit again.

                                                      Nice venue but we were seated in the middle of the floor which I didn't like and there wasn't much atmosphere. The food was good but the second course came out very soon after the first course, felt a bit rushed.

                                                      Lovely atmosphere for Christmas dinner - for Two adults and two kids (11+13). Nicely decorated, tables well spaced out and covid guidelines properly adhered to, without ruining the overall vibe of the place. Wide selection of food, everything tasted great and there was a set menu available which was good value. Staff are all very friendly, polite and nothing was a problem. Can't recommend it highly enough. We'd eaten in the other bar before (without kids) and we were looking forward to trying the Brasserie for a family Christmas dinner. Did not disappoint and we've already decided it's our new Christmas tradition. (Not just for Christmas though, would recommend it any time.)
