The Garden Room at The Merrion Hotel
The Garden Room is open all day - for breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner, alone or with friends, family or colleagues.
Welcome to The Garden Room and to something different.
Lovely hotel. Garden room very nice environment for a relaxing meal. Price range on menu will suit everyone.
Thomas and his team provide the best experience. And the food as always is outstanding!!
Fabulous dining room and wonderful staff. Special mention for Alessandra who served our table and was exceptionally nice. Alessandra is an absolute credit to the Merrion Hotel. All staff lovely & special mention also to the lady who took our coats who was so, so nice. Glamorous dining room in what’s probably Dublin’s best hotel.
Stunning all round
Lovely setting for upmarket lunch. Beautiful views of gardens, staff attentive and food very high standard.
Went to celebrate my birthday and was not disappointed. From the moment we arrived staff were so attentive and polite. Food was outstanding and delicious. Will return again soon. Would highly recommend.
The Garden Room is an excellent place for a quiet lunch.
Lunch was delicious
When we arrived the table we booked was occupied by diners who had overstayed the time allocated for use of the table. We were given complimentary glasses of sparkling wine and the waiting staff skillfully negotiated the release of the table.Service was excellent throughout the meal and the wine we chose was lovely.Unfortunately when we both ordered pork we discovered it was unavailable.I was also surprised that a restaurant in a 5 star hotel did not do daily specials. However the food we did order was excellent ,sea bream and filet mignon.Indeed the steak was one of the best I have ever had.Disappointly the chips that accompanied it looked and tasted like oven chips from a bag.No triple cooked chunky chips or anything like them.However that was the only complaint I had and overall an excellent meal in a pleasant environment with excellent service and worth the 102 Euro paid. Would definitely recommend.
Once again, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Garden Room Restaurant on Saturday last.
Alexandra and Frederika looked after us extremely well, always with good humour and excellent service. I chose the Venison which I would recommend - it was truly delicious.
We will be back to see you all again very soon I expect. Best regards - and thanks again to all the Garden Room team.
Beautiful dining room. Delightful Italian waitress. Excellent food extremely well presented. Superb wine and prosecco. Flawless.
Very nice room excellent sevice the food was disappointing and dod not match the rest of the product
The service was excellent, unfortunately the food took some time to come and the steak was not prime quality, a little tough. The French fries could have been more golden... it was more like an average pub dish. I expected just a little more finesse. The goat cheese starter on roasted beetroot was however very tasty.
It was great to see a Vegan menu at the Garden Room as one of our party is vegan and though I am not, I chose from this menu as I like to eat vegetarian occasionally but find that vegetarian offerings frequently feature cheese which I avoid for health reasons. I had the courgetti to start which was very nice if a little boring. The main of Shepherdless Pie was really delicious and the meat eaters enjoyed an excellent venison dish and one of pork too.
Vegan dessert of fruit crumble was not great but there was a delicious raspberry soufflé and coconut rice dessert which were both delicious.
With one bottle of wine, two beers, sparkling water and coffees the bill for four came to €238 before service. Not cheap but not bad for a 5* hotel restaurant.The service was excellent, friendly and discreet and the ambience lovely.
I would recommend for the vegan offerings and the lovely surroundings. The bistro like menu is large and you will be sure to find something to take your fancy.
I had the new vegan menu and it was absolutely gorgeous! Food was so tasty and just the right amount. It was lovely to enjoy vegan food in a really nice setting. Will definitely return.
We went to try out the new Vegan menu and were not disappointed. Really lovely and the Berry & Apple Crumble desert was amazing. Beautiful food and a lovely evening.
Beautiful dining room , very attentive staff, food good not outstanding. I loved the decor in this Garden room, gorgeous chairs and tables etc. food not memorable but fine
Amazing service as always
Birthday dinner. Fantastic service. Excellent menu choice.
Superbe service !
Lovely environment !
Really like this restaurant - everybody was very happy with the food and drinks, and as always the servers are attentive without being overbearing.
Excellent staff. Beautiful and relaxing ambience. Phenomenal started but was absolutely devastated by the main - venison. I don’t eat beetroot so I asked for something else as a purée. I didn’t get anything. I asked for medium. It was rare. There was zero flavour to it. None. Zero. Boiled potatoes were disappointing and mash was watery. I sent the dish back. Declined their kind offer as an alternative.
Dessert was exquisite. The management showed real concern over my disappointment with the dish. And their customer service was excellent and beyond what was necessary. I will return soon purely because of the customer service. Hopefully the meal will be more flavoursome.
Fabulous food in a really lovely, welcoming and elegant atmosphere
Overall very pleasant. Couldn’t fault food, service slightly haphazard but put it down to the night. It did not reduce our enjoyment.
Excellent evening in The Garden Room, great atmosphere, lovely food and excellent service.
Would strongly recommend for any celebration
Very happy with everything with exception of where our table was located. We were a little isolated from main body of resto.
The whole experience from start to finish was flawless
Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was really nice as it was not noisy. It was a really nice experience.
Great food, excellent service. I thoroughly enjoyed our meal
Excellent bar one area - tables for 2 were placed too close together- so much so you felt your conversations could easily be overheard ! Not intimate but larger parties fared better in this respect.
The Garden Room setting was perfect for our family gathering. The service was outstanding, wines delicious. All in all , a memorable experience. Thank you
Food was all delicious and beautifully presented, staff were all very friendly and helpful. Only slight critique is the veal main course was tiny - two small pieces of meat and one vegetable crisp - luckily we had ordered a side. The rest of the courses were delicious, especially the wood pigeon starter and venison main. Beautiful setting and ambience.
Always great food. Super team who always have time to change and make you feel so welcome. And incredible art work to admire as well as beautiful gardens
wonderful location, stunning room, excellent lighting, charming service, delicious food - and the peace oh my heavens the peace and calm were bliss at this time of the year.
Exceptional service, exquisite food
Great choice of starters, main course and desserts
Perfect venue for special occasion
And extremely festive
It was the perfect end to a lovey evening
A fabulous experience. From the decor to the food and the ambience everything contributes to a fabulous evening. Only slight issue was that the service was patchy at times with wine glasses not refilled. That said it would not put me off returning. The whole vibe is onderstated elegance
Beautiful restaurant - very tastefully decorated for Christmas. Great food - very imaginative menu. Excellent service - a great experience.
We enjoyed a most pleasant lunch with good friends. We were looked after very well. We were not rushed and our lunch was good. Especially the raspberry soufflé was delicious. 3 of us had fish. One had turkey & ham which was not as good. Over all we had the most lovely few hours. Thank you.
Excellent service, excellent food and will be back. Thank you.
