    We had the pleasure of visiting this weekend for the Valentine's package. The food was out of this world. From starter, main and desert we could not recommend this highly enough. That coupled with the amazing runway backdrop made this one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.

    Service felt rushed but not bad. Got pan fried halibut, risotto tasted like perfume. Had to get food elsewhere after dinner. Nothing worth coming back for. Seating and ambiance was nice but not worth the money.

    The thing this place is lacking is good service. The place was not overly busy, but we still waited 30 mins before we got a drink and our order was taken. The mains we got were delicious and I couldn't fault it. When we finished we waited a bit before our table was cleared. At that point we were offered the dessert menu. Over 30 minutes later still no sign of the menus, so we asked for the bill. Disappointed with it

    The menu has changed recently and there are less options, only opens at 1pm now so not really good for brunch. Best for indoor views of planes landing at Dublin airport though!

    Wonderful restaurant, amazing food portion size a bit small. So happy I went there, only thing it was cold so couldn’t sit outside but could still see the planes from inside so it was a win win. Can’t wait go back

Thanks from both of us and Happy new year to all of you.

    Waiting staff were very friendly, I couldn’t fault them. The quality of food is nice for the most part but the portions, especially the starters are absolutely tiny and extremely over priced for what they are. Waiting time for the main course was very long also. Cocktails were nice. Overall I would not return for the price you are paying for small portions.

    Waiting over an hour for dinner, cocktails arrived differently each time, too weak or too strong, no consistency throughout. Ended up leaving at 11pm on New Year’s Eve which was utterly disappointing. Would not recommend to a friend or relative.

    The service here was a little slow but it was New Year’s Eve and they were busy which is totally understandable! One woman in particular, I don’t know her name was outstanding, no request was too big or small for her! The food was absolutely outstanding, I never had anything like it! Already planning our next visit here!

    For the price we paid for two mains, a side and two cocktails, it was quite average, The food was mostly bland, the cocktails were tasty but very little alcohol for the price. Atmosphere was nice, most of the staff were welcoming and friendly and our food/drinks came very quickly. Overall it was a nice experience but we found it quite expensive for the quality of food we were served

    Staff staff and again staff i would come back to any place where u always feel like home and Runway 28 can rely on people who is working there 200% Congrats to management i hope they looking after them cause without the people who gives 100% for the job they wouldn’t survive. Hats off for kitchen for the stake i could say one of the best i try in a long time traveling around the world. Facilities have a bit step up talking about toilets hard to get water from the tap and some tissues is missing but apart of that If u really want to feel like welcome and spend your good time go to Runway 28 u wont regret. Definitely recommend and coming back myself again. Happy New year to all people who serves us 🤘

    The staff that served us were second to none. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. Wish I could remember the name of the lovely girl that looked after us. She made the whole experience on a busy Christmas Eve personal and took time to converse with our children. It’s not easy working in the hospitality industry especially on days like Christmas Eve but she made it an experience to be remembered. We will be back because of her and the other lovely servers working there.

    This was a magic new find - we will be back again and again. A family birthday dinner and the staff made it a very special night, thanks to Peter especially and Jimmy. Everyone (sorry we didnt' get all names) was friendly and professional. The food was outstanding in particular the Gambas, the Surf n Turf, the mash to die for and Cocktails were perfection. Thank you for a special evening.
