    Having booked a table weeks ago and confirmed booking the day beforehand, when we arrived unfortunately the premises was closed. It being Christmas Eve, our alternative options were extremely limited. Whilst I think it was lovely to have closed so the staff could finish early, I just wish they had informed us as this is not local to us and we had travelled to it.

    Looked like a nice place but the service is absolutely. Booked a table before a gig in vicar st. I tried to phone to ask about a game being shown for 3 days but no answer, very frustrating. When we arrived there was a written note suck to a table with just the time I had booked the table, no name or details. A located made themselves at home and had no intention of moving, I asked them twice. I them asked a member of staff 2 confirm if this was our table, they had no interest in helping us, so we left. Very disappointed, there is huge potential but it needs a very good manager

    Tried reserving a table through the app but when we walked in it was packed and clearly no reservations. Place looked great on the website but appears it’s a younger crowd now. Have to order food at the bar, couldn’t get anyone to wait on us. Ended up leaving with no food or drink

    We popped in for some food before heading to vicar street for a gig (it’s next door). Tasty burgers and the guy / manager behind the bar was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Will definitely go back for another gluten free burger

    Everything was fine. I went one day earlier just to make sure that my table was indeed reserved. I got there late but my friends were able to secure the place for us. Drinks were good and cheap, wow burger was amazing! The only downside was the noise from the music. I bit too loud and hard to talk to people.

    The person who I was told was the manager had no idea about booking - just told me to take a table looking at me as if I didn't understand how pubs work. Luckily there were some available. Not sure they understand the concept of reservation. Wowburger food was very tasty and hit the spot, but live music began shortly after we arrived and it was excruciatingly loud so we left as soon as we finished food.

    We had a table booked for 9pm. Arrived and no table reserved. Had to wait 30 minutes for a table to be ready for us. The music was incredibly loud and the crowd was rough. No covid cert checks, no masks being worn by anyone and zero social distancing. Not what I expected from a press-up venue. Terrible lack of responsibility on behalf of the management. Left after one drink.

    We arrived to the bar at our reservation time and when asked if we had made a booking, a staff member nodded and left us standing at the door and went back to working behind the bar. We were ignored until we sought out another staff member who told us that they had overbooked so if we wanted we could sit in Wowburger instead of in the bar where our table was booked. People appeared to be just entering the pub and sitting/standing where they liked. Our Covid certs were not checked. Disappointed and would not return or recommend.

    Seemed to be a little confusion over the booking but did get a table. Table service was very mixed-sometimes drinks coming very quickly and a lot of the time orders taking ages to arrive back to the table (not sure if the delay was at the bar or table service possibly, at the bar). Can eat your Wow Burger orders at the tables in the bar (those that eat were v happy with the food). Music lively but sometimes hard for the foreign staff to hear and vice versa between music, masks and language barrier - enjoyable night and great right next door to Vicar Street so can just pop in before gig starts.

    Had never been and could only go on what I saw on the website which was very misleading. Looks like this cool place and then we go, no tables left in the bar and we get sent to what one can only describe as a roudy chipper out the back with groups of teenagers for our night out. Absolutely not what we had envisaged. Very disappointed. Would not recommend for pre show food or drinks

    Lovely old style pub, we got there for 6pm and music was extremely loud , we had to shout at each other (and were in our 20s and 30s) .. thya was only downside. Otherwise great bar, would highly recommend!. Didnt have lot of our beer preferences on tap or bottle i.e. rockshore, hop house and some spirits.

    Didn't eat just had a drink. Staff were very nice but there were no covid cert checks, no masks as people wondered around, we were told to just sit anywhere so I didn't understand the booking a table request. We had a drink and decided to leave as it didn't feel like a good place to stay with the rocketing covid numbers in Dublin. A shame as it looks like a nice place to hang out for an evening

    Wow burger always a crowd pleaser. Drinks more expensive than average dublin. Nice staff and ambience. Staff were adhering well to Covid rules & plenty of hand sanitizer etc but not challenging plenty walking around without masks - appreciate they can’t babysit everyone but seemed like it was the norm as there were more than average not wearing masks while walking about. Overall would go back for a pre-drink before Vicar St - probably wouldn’t venture there otherwise

    Second time here, first time was during the day when staff where overly attentive to the point of annoying and trying to lift drinks that weren't finished, but this time I would have preferred that because sitting out the back not a single staff member to be seen for the whole time, very hard to order, had to go inside bar each time. Bad experience, we were sorry we left the previous bar which had exceptional staff, the Guinness open gate brewery, go there instead
