    Incredibly poor service. Deserts and starter dreadful. Nothing done when we complained. Almost empty on a Saturday night on a bank holiday weekend ,obvious why! We were out to celebrate a big birthday and happy to spend the money but not to be robbed. I sent an email to the hardiman and got no reply. Brilliant customer service on top of everything else!!

    Lovely friendly staff could not help more. Lovely selection of wine with sharing boards. Nice setting in the red heart of Galway.

    While I do recognise it was valentines night, our food took 90 minutes, and noone came at any point to say it may take some time. We did have people come with incorrect orders twice though. I got the monkfish special with celaric puree at 40 euro. It consisted of 3 little nuggets of monkfish with 3/4 dots of celeriac on the plate for dressing and a large mound of mashed potatoes. I felt this was really misleading for the price I paid. It was tasty but was mainly just a plate of mashed potatoes

    The waiter spilled the drinks on our food and in our clothes but we didn’t even receive any complimentary and he also thought of serving the starter with spilled wine on it. It ruined our valentines date.

    My girlfriend and i had a great evening here in the Hardiman Hotel. Great Margeritas & service from the gentleman in the bar. Food was wonderful but… no Oysters? Perhaps there’s a dry spell in getting fresh Oysters. Other than the Oysters everything else was wonderful. 10/10

    We stayed at the hotel, which was amazing. But the restaurant was awful. The fish and chips was not fresh and the chicken curry was extremely dry. We’re not recommend going there for dinner .

    Very disappointing!! We came for the oysters and they were out of them! The burgers were over cooked. The short ribs were okay, but the portion was small and the mashed potatoes tasted tart, not like wasabi. Service was awful. My 3 companions were nearly finished with their first drink by the time I got my Bloody Melley, which was nothing great. I know they were very busy but our server never checked back with us through the meal. Wish we’d gone some place else.
