    My food was awful the pasta was extremely under cooked I like al dente but it was very undercooked and the sauce and chicken weren't great, the dish was out on the table less than 10 minutes from ordering which I never think is a good sign I let the waiter know my issue but that was it.

    This place is all fur coat and no knickers, it looks great, but the quality and taste of the food was basic at best. The staff were lovely and the service was good, but that’s where it ends do me. The meaty legend pizza had very little meat, and the proof salad was lacking in everything. The cocktails are the pre made type, and very syrupy, tasted cheap and full of sugar. I ate here a few years back and I thought it may have upped its game, but Dublin has some great restaurants. I won’t be back to this one.

    That was the 3rd time at that place. The 1st one was ok. I thought the flies was because of the plants inside the restsurant, the 2bd I booked a table but there was no food 2b served, the 3rd time was almost impossible to eat coz of the flies and mosquitos. Also lack of service. Waiters were too busy to bother to look at of ask if we needed anything. Food was ok.

    Service was pleasant if not perfectly attentive. Food was excellent. We had a love/hate pizza (basically a Hawaiian), the Big Smoke flatbread the wings with Frank’s hot sauce. Crust was nicely chewy yet crisp. Toppings were fresh and flavorful. The wings were as advertised. Just the right amount of food for two. Atmosphere is very causal. Overall a great place to satisfy hunger. Just no atmosphere.

    I love proof and have always had a top notch experience there! Lovely staff, gorgeous decor and a good atmosphere! The food has always been great. I went yesterday before a gig in Vicar street, the pizza was not as it usually is, the dough was not as I’m use to. Disappointed!

    We booked a table for 2 here ahead of a gig in Vicar Street. We were greeted at the door by a smiley host who sat us at our table straightway and gave us menus. We were served in a timely manner and always by friendly staff. We ordered caprese to start and chicken wings, both delicious. For mains we had chicken and mushroom pasta and Regina pizza. Again both dishes were very tasty. We will definitely be back next time we visit Vicar St. It was very busy/loud as the restaurant was full of mainly the crowd going to the gig but staff remained in control and professional.

    The food is lovely and the service is fine, but the tables are just so close together that you are constantly listening to your neighbours conversation. I don't mind the noisy party atmosphere but the proximity of the tables is very distracting (perhaps this is just in a post covid world because I got used to 2m distances)

    Food was good and lovely setting with plenty of outdoor covered tables but the service was very slow even though they seemed to be well staffed - when the servers were with us they were really lovely and so friendly, so no complaints there, but we had to chase them to order food, get bill etc...we actually would have spent more money on drinks etc but they didnt check on us, would have had dessert but we ran out of time for same reason...would go back but they just need to be a bit more attentive / have better management i think.

    Food was nice but nothing special but it was very busy and very hot in there. Not a place for families I would say and the service wasn’t the best. We were even almost charged €30 more for someone’s else’s bill so it’s a good job I checked. Cocktails were nice and for a bottomless brunch it would be nice but we struggled to stay any longer than necessary unfortunately. Such a shame as I found the place on Instagram and we walked quite out our way for it on from our hotel.

    Food was absolutely great.. couldnt fault the food but the delay in getting it was a bit of an issue. We had a gig in Vicar St that was at half 8 so we booked a table for 7. We were served our starters by 7:15 and were waiting 45 mins after the plates for the starters were collect for main course. We had to rush through our mains to get into the venue on time. It seemed they forgot about our table, but a few other customers seemed to be having delays with their food as well.
