All of my dining experiences in Glovers Alley have lived up to my expectations. Every aspect of a ‘superior’ dining experience was catered for.
I look forward to my next visit.

Quite simply the best food i have ever eaten. Went as a group of 6 for lunch and everyone was seriously impressed by the food and service provided. Even had a picky eater who cleared all three courses. What was most impressive was the little nibbles between meals and the attention to detail on every aspect of the dining experience. The chef asked what was the occacion which was a birthday and even had a hand written card delivered to the table which really topped off a fantastic experience

Another amazing meal in glovers alley. This time we had the a’la carte which was amazing (again). I had the prawn starter with suckling pig as a main, and the only thing I can say is “OMG”! Similarly for the tomato tartare and turbot which she had, which was equally amazing. The service was first class all the way. You need to visit this restaurant.

Food was good. It seems a little expensive given the experience you now receive due to Covid. Not sure I would rush back due to cost which is a shame. I appreciate the style of restaurant etc but I’m not sure it works too well in the current climate.... I would recommend it to a friend with the above caveat.

Stunningly good food.
We both decided on the tasting menu.
Delighted we did. I can honestly say it was the finest prepared dishes we have tasted in years.
The service was exemplary considering the unusually times all the restaurant colleagues find themselves working in.
Already looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you all.

Lovely lunch with a friend I hadn’t met since before lockdown. The food and service was second to none, and the C19 precautions (face masks, table spacing), were very reassuring.

Wonderful food, excellent service - friendly, helpful yet unobtrusive. Front of house all wearing face screens which takes a moment to get used to but reminded us that the necessities of the new reality were being properly addressed. Tables all spaced 2 metres apart, hand sanitizer available at the top of the stairs before entering the restaurant, in the bathrooms and small individual bottles provided at the table for each diner. Light card menu (disposable after each use) and q code provided to download wine menu. We had a wonderful meal and excellent dining experience. Great to see the restaurant open again and as good if not better than ever!

Loved every minute of it. The service form the get go was perfect and just got better as the night went on. Food was really stunning as was the wine (and wine recommendations). Even got to meet the chef which was such a lovely touch to a great night. This is a serious treat of a place and not something you’d do every month but wow. I couldn’t recommend it more! Go and enjoy

One of the best meals we've had in Dublin, great way to start eating out again after Covid. Excellent Social Distancing measures, food was sensational. We went for the 4 course surprise menu. They accommodated my husband who doesn't eat red meat. Food was sublime, so tasty and great interesting combinations, such a fabulous evening and the service was wonderful, charming and helpful without ever intruding. Would highly recommend.

We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing.
Service was terrible - didn’t explain the food or wine.
We had to ask for wine to be served before food.
I wouldn’t rate the experience or recommend.
Very disappointing.

Dear Stephanie, Naturally, I am disappointed to read the below comments in regards to your Dining Experience here with us on Saturday. We find that the feedback of your experience is an exception rather than a common trend here at Glovers Alley. As you are aware we are all experiencing new dining restrictions due to Covid-19 and we did of course experience some teething issues on Saturday night. Yours Sincerely, Dylan Leon Reservations Manager, 01-244-0733 | info@gloversalley.ie

Top quality food as always. What sets this place apart is the attention to detail particularly with their Covid related safety measures - individual hand sanitizers at the table, staff all wearing face coverings, the spacing between tables.
The restaurant still manages to retain a sense of "normality" which is carried off by the brilliant staff; professional, charming, engaging and never too serious.
The best place in town for a special meal in safe surroundings.

Absolutely fabulous from the minute we walked in , we were greeted so genuinely like friends.
We had the surprise menu, and what a surprise, every dish was to die for, flavours, taste, presentation. I want to go back in a heartbeat. Must do in dublin, as a real treat, and because you are worth it
