    We booked the G restaurant for Valentines dinner, we both ordered the same main course and unfortunately both meals were extremely dry. One portion was considerably smaller than the other and overall there was not much food on the plate. The only thing that saved it was the fact that the staff were very understanding and apologetic and in particular the supervisor who offered us a replacement meal. Overall, we wouldn’t recommend the G restaurant

    Very poor service, dinner plates cold & food only warm (not hot) & left waiting for cutlery! Had to return meals as cold by the time cutlery came. Mix up with side orders, Wrong drinks served. Too many waiters serving us. Did get compensated with complimentary drinks but the overall service ruined our evening & made us late for our concert after. Overall disappointing

    Nice experience for 5 of us. Chicken wings were very good, as was the monkfish and cod. The lamb was a touch dry. Service was quiet and attentive and the cocktails were nice. I especially enjoyed the staff making off menu mocktails for my son. Pricey evening, but lovely atmosphere and good service. If I wanted to make another splash I would come here again.

    One member of staff was excellent, continuously topping up water and drinks. Unfortunately no one else checked how the meal was or if anything else was needed. The lamb main came with one potato and one carrot so we asked for a side of mash each when it came. We were told we would have to wait 5 minutes which was understandable. Unfortunately the side did not arrive until during the dessert which we explained it was too late, this was still added to our bill. I expect and have no issue paying for quality ingredients, however the food was unfortunately underwhelming and I would not recommend. We were extremely grateful and enjoyed the lovely surprise dessert given as it was our anniversary. This was a very lovely touch.

    G Hottel is an exceptional place. We have been loyal clients for many years. Excellent location near the center, plenty of parking spaces. As locals, we only used the spa and restaurant, both of which are top-notch. Beautiful interior design, delicious food, and highly professional staff. Special thanks to Kasia, who stands out with her competence and excellent customer approach. Our daughter liked her so much that she spontaneously drew a picture for her on a napkin. We highly recommend G Hotel to everyone.

    Our Christmas treat of lunch in the G Hotel was very disappointing . The waitress did not possess customer service, was sharp and dismissive of our requests of information on food choices. The food was poor . Soup puréed vegetables, my hamburger was pink in the middle, the chicken schnitzel was dried up . . Desserts were like as if were thawed from freezer . Would have expected a better experience.

    We are from the Bar/Lounge Menu. Nothing special- meals were very expensive for what you got. Noticed on both Burger and Chicken dishes that there were no vegetables. And you MUST order sides because there isn’t enough food on the plate for a €23 dish. The beef burger is very standard, nicely presented but small size, fast food burgers are a 3rd bigger! The chicken schnitzel, extremely basic, again, no veg- you have to order a side. Disappointing food. Drinks were beautiful

    We arrived at the lounge and was sat at our table and were ignored for the 40-50 minutes we were there. We eventually left and took our business elsewhere where it would be appreciated. There was 1 other person in the lounge so they weren't bust which we would understand. We asked a server if she would take our order but she never returned. I wouldn't like to see the place if they had a few bookings... they wouldn't cope. Would not recommend!

    Service was extremely poor for both drinks and dining throughout the night. We were waiting over half hour for our first drink to arrive and over hour for a shared starter. This trend continued throughout our time there.

    We ordered large chicken wings to share- the portion was only enough for one. We also ordered fries with chorizo and cheese. The fries were cold and stale, the cheese wasn’t melted, the toppings didn’t stick to the fries and fell off. We also ordered a mocktail which only tasted of coconut syrup which we couldn’t drink. Overall a very bad experience. We expected much better from the G hotel and wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Disappointing.

    We booked a work lunch online and received confirmation plus a reminder email the day before our lunch. When we got to The G Hotel, they did not have our reservation and I was told by a very impatient waitress that I 'should have booked by phone like everybody else', that the online bookings don't come to them, when I tried to explain that I could not have known that she just shut me down and told me to book by phone next time. She then begrudgingly got us a table and barely spoke to us for the rest of our lunch. It might be a 5 star hotel but customer service is just about a 1!

    It was fine. The new lounges are pretty but there’s no wow factor now. And there wasn’t much of an atmosphere. There were very few people which was odd for a Saturday night. The tables are the right height now so it’s a lot easier to eat there, which is good. The service is the same old same old. We ordered food, had to ask for drinks menus, food arrived ten minutes in, no drinks yet. Everyone was polite but just not five star service (the g has been this way for many years). Food was average, asked for no pickles, it arrived with pickles. Food value was okay. Drinks extremely expensive. €18 to €20 for a cocktail is way overpriced. Ironically they probably could have got away with charging that before the renovation because at least there was a great atmosphere. I also found it odd that they’d spent €1 million on a refit but hadn’t painted (or even cleaned) the bathroom doors. Still no direction or anyone to greet you when you get out of the lift, the usual wandering around looking for someone to assist. The service has been sub-par for years but I hoped it would have improved with the refurb. 45 minutes in, we’d had two courses finished. It felt very rushed. Not what you’d expect from a five star hotel.

    Our server (I didn’t catch her name) was wonderful. She was so accommodating and went the extra mile. She got a balloon and small dessert plate for my boyfriends birthday which was so special. However, this was the only positive to our experience. I booked the Boujee Brunch (and called an hour before to make sure it was going on) but there was no DJ. The food was inedible - everything was over cooked or under cooked. Two other tables next to us sent back their food. There was also a waitress cleaning the bathrooms in the middle of service which is quite unhygienic. Overall, very disappointing and I will not be recommending or returning.

    I booked this via the app, I didn’t realise the signature lounges would be so casual and casual dining. I assumed because the G is a 5 star the food would be more interesting and a better selection. I didn’t review the menus before hand because I am not a fussy eater and don’t like things too preplanned. In hindsight I wish I asked to be seated in the other restaurant. For example on e fo the starters was crab on brown bread served with chips ?? As a starter The table we sat at was low , not appropriate for eating. The service was as friendly and efficient. Overpriced and an underwhelming experience. Perfect for drinks with friends but not food

    Food was good but overpriced. €6.50 for a rather mediocre bowl of chips. Monkfish wellington was nicely presented. The new decor is presumably meant to appeal a wider clientele but I miss the frivolity of the original rooms. Bathrooms were unfortunately not included in the refurbishment and could do with a good clean - walls dirty, and the toilet bowls are so low to the floor it's like being back in national school. Service was slow and disorganised. The few servers seemed to be running around like healess chickens. We ordered wine but food was nearly finished before we got it.

    Sat down for our 8pm booking, bit offered a high chair for our baby and message on booking clearly not read. Nobody returned to take order after 25 mins so we just went to the pub across the road for dinner. Seemingly happens frequently. We were residents in the hotel but there was a Christmas staff party on that was clearly the priority over other people. Menu was nowhere near what’s online also.

    We went to the G to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The food was outstanding, some of the best we’ve had. The service however wasn’t as great. Our sides came out half an hour after we finished our mains. You couldn’t get the attention of any of the servers unless they were bringing your food just took quite awhile to get to us. There was as a party of about 15 beside us that got so loud, we couldn’t hear each other over them. While the food was amazing the price we paid for it could be better used elsewhere if the service and atmosphere isn’t going to be as good.

    Service was very poor. 2.5 hours for 2 courses. Long wait from order to receiving food and between courses. We went to bar to settle bill as no staff member had approached us from some time. However, as we entered the lift a different staff member questioned if we had settled our bill despite we having already done so at the bar.
