                                  Wonderful birthday celebration for 5. Service was very good. Some of the dishes I had there were the best of their kind I’d ever had (in particular the Turbot, Langoustine, and Rice Pudding). Great wine recommendations. Really enjoyed the decor, and was afraid it would be too bright for my liking but it worked. Family remarked how they had such a wonderful time afterwards. Would recommend!

                                  Exceptional - an experience and an education. We had the 7 course tasting menu with classic wine paring. It was unreal - surpassed my expectations. The staff were incredible, so passionate and knowledgeable and so professional while being warm and friendly. Their enthusiasm and genuine pleasure in discussing the food & wine and answering any questions made the night so special. The time left between serving each course was judged perfectly and much appreciated. The wine list is extensive and features wines from countries I don't usually see. We tried wines from Slovakia and Slovenia which was a first and varieties I hadn't tried before too. We had a cocktail each before dinner and they were delicious - so flavourful and made from fresh ingredients. The food was just extraordinary. The combinations and textures so imaginative and tasty. I have been thinking about it all since. Absolutely everything is prepared fresh, the selection of breads need a special mention as do the scallops, squid tagliatelle, venison and dessert... even the coffee is gorgeous. Our visit to Glover's Alley was a real treat and to be repeated as soon as possible. Loved everything about it.

                                  Service was prompt (a little too quick between courses? perhaps that's an overhang of Covid?). Food was top class - the sort that stops conversations on account of the rich flavours. Wines were excellent - but quite pricey.

                                  Third time here, food has lost some of its wow factor , service was a bit hurried, better food and service to be had elsewhere for far less.

                                  Excellent from flavour and design, the service, detail, explanation of menu from waiting staff. I was like a performance thoroughly enjoyed. My only negative is charging for still water , at maximum it should be a €1-2 not 5 Recommend to my friends and family Regards Michelle Mooney

                                  Great place to go for any reason at all if you an to experience the best!! Everything was superb from the moment we checked in with the hostess until we paid our check. The service was far better than anything I’ve had anywhere in France or NYC - friendly, knowledgeable, polite. There was no rushing you through the dinner. The food - all of it is expertly prepared and present, not to mention delicious. The amuse bouche had us almost licking the plate. I have not been so impressed with a restaurant (and I’ve been to many of them in many countries). Oh, and did I mention the cocktails & wine list? Impeccable! If you go to Dublin (as I will again) Glover’s Alley IS A MUST!

                                  Wonderful food. Especially the fact that there are separate vegan and vegetarian menu options was most welcome. A proper celebration of food in taste, texture, and plating.

                                  We went for my husband's birthday and we were treated so well. We had the 3 course lunch menu, but it also came with four little extra bites and sorbet. The service was phenomenal and the food exquisite I'd definitely return.

                                  The food is overpriced. It seems like he is trying too hard to be nouveau cuisine. My food was extremely salty and some other things were very bland. I had the 7 course chef surprise which means the chef chooses what comes out. One dish was a lamb with a piece of pork belly and ratatouille. It was so salty it made my eyes cry. One dessert was a rice pudding with pieces of hardened merengue. The rice pudding tasted like rice boiled in water. For $200 I expected something better. The ingredients were fresh,and the service is outstanding; but I’m not eating either of them.

                                  A perfectly balanced tasting menu, a pitch-perfect atmosphere that is relaxed but classy, attentive service and an imaginative and diverse selection of wines. One of the best restaurants in the city, if not the best.

                                  Michelin star food and experience in all respects. Every single course of the tasting menu was an amazing culinary adventure. Glovers Alley is a must for food lovers. Though the wine pairing is on the pricey side for what you get. Food is fantastic value.
