    Was there for 2 and a half hours for a starter and mains and only had only had the opportunity to order one drink. We were ignored once we finished our main course and could not order a dessert / drink. After 40 minutes we went to the bar to ask could we order a cocktail , a waiter took our order and after a further 30 minutes passed there was still no sign of these cocktails so we left.
    Sophie's @ The Dean GalwayResponded on 3 June 2024
    Sincere apologies on the dining experience you had with us last Friday night. It is certainly not our usual standard of service and has been addressed with the team on the night. If you could reach out to me at steven.flanagan@thedean.ie to discuss further that would be much obliged.

    We started off well with a greeting and menus. The food was served quickly and the starters were good, and well received, but all four of our main courses (each different) were bland, underwhelming and did not seem to match the venue / reputation. Service was very poor, and we eventually left after 30 mins of waiting for our plates to be cleared. Would definitely recommend as a venue for drinks but the food and meal experience was disappointing.
