    As always, the food itself was wonderful. However, menu has changed and they do flag this as time of booking. However, as they are only open Concert nights we were disappointed to find only quite complex and expensive dishes on the menu. Some less formal dishes would be welcome like the amazing burger we have had several times before. The meal was very expensive - we had two of the lower priced dishes plus one drink each and it cost over €80. For this price I'm afraid it's not something we will do again although we love the convenience on the Concert night.

    The service and the venue itself was excellent however compared to the meal I had at the Coda at the Gibson last month the quality of the food and the price was disappointing. Coda have changed their menu and the choice is still good however there has been a dramatic increase in prices. This is probably to be expected in the current climate, however if you are paying €16 for a lamb starter you would expect it to be of better quality and not chewy and difficult to eat. Even the chips, which were to die for before, were disappointing and I think not even hand made. On a more positive note the Atlantic Cod was excellent but again for nearly €30 it would want to be. I'm hoping this was a temporary glitch and that the quality will once again reach their previous heights.

    Very small portions but the taste was excellent. Wait staff were very good but stretched very thin so very long waits when trying to order a second drink or dessert or get the bill and having to flag someone down wasn't always easy.

    I was booked into the coda restaurant. On arrival we moved to the bar as the restaurant menu was different to what is on their website so we didn’t fancy the restaurant menu. The bar food and cocktails were fantastic

    Food was very disappointing, food was cold and no flavour, very very small portions,no napkins given between course (even after been asked for them) steak had to be sent back twice and should have been a third time but we gave up at this point, very disappointed with our experience tonight , tonight was a treat for us and we were left very disappointed.

    Having checked the online menu before we booked we were delighted to see a few vegan and vegetarian options. On arrival to the restaurant we were told the menu had changed and now there was only one vegan main course and no vegetarian option! There were starters and desserts that were suitable but there was only sorbet as a vegan desert which was extremely disappointing. Overall the mushroom main course was very nice but we had to add fries and a portion of vegetables to bulk it up as we would have been hungry otherwise. Our server was lovely and very attentive without being annoying! We would happily return but please put up an updated menu online!

    The food and cocktails were great. The service was really poor! One server in particular was rude and unhelpful when we asked questions about the venue and facilities. This was our first time at Coda. Not sure we’d go back, had we have been served properly it would have been an excellent occasion.

    Had specifically requested a quieter table, that was ignored. Food, great taste though no vegetables offered, when requested told my supervisor there was none. Found selection of vegetables in menu when dessert menu given. Therefore, layout of menu very poor. Staff presentation incredibly poor. Shirts not ironed, not one pair of clean shoes, smell of body odour from one young man and most hair not brushed or tied back. Overall, extremely scruffy. It's there no staff presentation inspection? And what on earth is the laundry situation?

    Our experience was superb.It took awhile for our food to come out however I discovered it was the first night of a new menu.My Mam & I had a lovely evening.The food was delicious & hot.Our waitress was very attentive . . Binging a ‘pint’ of ice & turning up the air conditioning as I had run 2 k with my Mam in a wheelchair as we found it very had to get a taxi from Merrion Square due to traffic.Thank you to everyone for making it a lovely evening.My Dad died recently.It was Mam’s first night out since he died & ye all added to her enjoyment.Well done to all,Orla.

    I went with 2 friends pre Take That concert. It was very busy , understandably. We were seated immediately and drinks and food order taken quickly. Food was fab and the service was impeccable. Given the restaurant was full of concert goers and very busy we were so well looked after and a lovely young server chatted away to us about the concert and how she liked take that.. she mentioned she was cognitive enough to remember the songs, that may remind her , I wish I got her name to give her credit. We were sitting by the wine storage if she remembers us, thank you. No rush on us given how busy it was. Will 100% return.

    Very easy booking system. Staff very friendly. Service was attentive. Nice menu. Food was good quality and well presented. Only minor things for me were that the coffee wasn't great (too weak and too hot for me, and the prosecco was charged €2 more than it the price printed on the menu). Would definitely visit again.

    I ate in Coda restaurant with two friends before a concert in the 3arena. None of us like yhe selection of starters, so opted for mains and dessert. I had slow cooked beef and it was delicious. I want to single out the service which was excellent and attentive, although they were full. I especially want to highlight their integrity and honesty as I had overpaid the bill and tip by €50 (I paid cash) and hadn't noticed. Although I had said the cash I had given had paid the bill and included a tip, they came back to me to say did I really mean that much? When I counted the money, I realised the extra €50. 10 out of 10.

    Went to Coda Restaurant before concert at 3Arena. Service was excellent and very well organised considering how busy it was. Food was good too, only one small complaint, the portion size of the tortelloni was very small. However overall a very enjoyable experience.

    Loved the Gibson in general and have stayed here twice for concerts in as many weeks. But I have one complaint about the breakfast. Your sausages are the blandest and most untasteful I have ever eaten. My ten year old, who loves sausages, said that they had gone off. I tasted them and came to the conclusion that they had not gone off but were just the cheapest sausages that were probably available. No taste, no texture, no flavor.....cardboard tasting. Hopefully, you will rectify this soon.

    We booked a table for three at the codi eatery Food was perfect and service was perfect the only real issue I had was the size of the table for three of it was a table for two with third chair pushed in for our son when asked could we slide another table across for more room we were told no all the tables were booked it was very awkward trying to eat as the table was so small and trying to avoid knocking things down off the the table i was disappointed with this as it was Mother’s Day and I booked the table a week in advance and drove the whole up from laois to be packed in to a tiny table
