The Ivy Dawson Street
The Ivy Collection has crossed the Irish Sea to open its first international brasserie in the heart of Dublin at the new landmark building of One Molesworth, Dawson Street.
The Ivy Dawson Street brings a touch of Ivy magic to Ireland, offering effortless glamour and a varied mix of classics and locally inspired dishes including Dublin Bay prawns and Dungarvan oysters.
With 200 seats and a beautiful private dining room, The Ivy Dawson Street caters for every occasion from breakfast and weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and beyond, with a beautiful bar serving cocktails and drinks until late.
Open seven days a week from dawn until dusk, the brasserie is accessible to all, welcoming local residents, businesses and visitors alike.
Food was lovely, very busy and there is a cool vibe.
Everything was excellent - didn't ask the price of the wine beforehand and was surprised it cost €49 per bottle as this wine ranges between €21/23 elsewhere. Other than that all very good.
Loved my birthday brunch. Waitress was class. Comfy bench seating and gorgeous decor. Food was gorgeous . So much and really reasonably priced . Prosecco is delicious .
Great service and delicious food...good spot for brunch
I love dining here in Ivy wether its brunch,lunch or afternoon tea. Love the food, ambience and the employess are very helpful and kind. I highly recommend it.
The service had taken a nose dive since my previous visit; cold toast, 20 minute wait for marmalade, no condiments offered. Thankfully the deco is as beautiful as ever and my company was great.
I was expecting so much more. Was hugely disappointed. Interior and ambience was nice, I enjoyed that. Just the menu and the quality of the food served up was hugely disappointing. I don’t like to give negative reviews. I would have loved to said it was amazing from start to finish, but it wasn’t. The food let you down :(
Birthday celebration that was celebrated by restaurant with cupcake and candle on top
Wine is expensive plonk basically €29 for a €4 supermarket brand
Good was average but bland
Staff however were very attentive and credit to restaurant
Overall a restaurant living on the reputation of its sister in London
Overall a really lovely experience! Food was excellent and ambiance was perfect.
They definitely need to do more staff training though. When we arrived the host wasn’t exactly welcoming and it was almost an effort for him to take our jackets. Leaving was the same and we felt we interrupted the conversation that they were having.
Our particular waitress was exceptional throughout the night and was also really friendly but the other waiters that were pouring the wine could have a few more lessons. Not turning the bottle leaving wine all over the glass and table.
Apart from these small issues, it was a great experience and we will be sure to come back.
It’s not the best place for dining. The food always has been average here. But the ambiance is very good and you wanna go there again. I would recommend going there only for drinks.
I love the eclectic decor and warm inviting ambiance. The service from Emily was amazing and made our experience that much more pleasant. There is an extensive selection of wines and exquisite cocktails to accompany the incredible food menu. There is something to suit every palette and we will definitely be returning to try more dishes off the menu.
Very good food, service, ambiance and decor. All round great place
I was sceptical of attending the ivy on valentines day. As a restaurant owner, I know its a big night and you need reap the rewards. That all said I found the whole meal totally lack luster... I mean it was fine, but nothing I couldn't have been served in a local pub. The steak came on a plate, I wasn't asked if I wanted sauce and when it arrived on the plate with nothing else I was waiting 15 minutes for some sauce to arrive. All this combined with the overpriced bread, extra charges for sauce left me quite disappointed. To be clear I expect to pay for these things but the quality did not live up to expectations.
Beautiful restaurant. Fantastic service. Friendly and unobtrusive. Delicious food beautifully presented. Wonderful evening
Amazing quality food and drinks. Amazing looking restaurant as well. Staff were super friendly and helped with whatever we needed. Will be coming back whatever occasion we can.
Monkfish and prawn curry had very few seafood in it!! More like a vegetable curry.....
service really good , staff should be treated very well by management. Portions overall v small and no sides included
Afternoon tea was only ok. The portions were small fir the price. Tea and coffee was served 20 minutes before the food arrived and was cold by then. There was no offer of a top up.
A fantastic Afternoon Tea in the Ivy.
The service is excellent and the food was fabulous. We'll certainly be back in the future! Thanks a million.
It's a gorgeous room, really nicely decorated. The food is good comfort food.
The food was really poor. I’d heard this from a lot of people but wanted to try it anyway. Extremely disappointed. The food had a very processed taste to it, very over priced. The bathrooms were dirty. However our server was lovely although we felt like we were being rushed and the tables are on top of each other. Overall not a good experience.
A super enjoyable birthday lunch in fabulous surroundings and friendly staff...no complaints here....can't wait to come back again
We had lunch there a few days ago. The soup was not tasty, the steak was gummy, the beef steak came cold and my friend sent it back, the fries were very dry, not tasty, at the desert the waiter did not exactly understand what to bring, it was totally disappointing. The spinach was the only one that was ok. The sorbet was not creamy and had chunks of ice in it which means it was defrost and then frozen again ...
The only thing to appreciate is the setting of this restaurant, which is very chic. It is such a pity. The people go there only for the 'name' of the restaurant. I went to the one in London and it was a lot better.
Food was delicious. Staff were lovely and helpful. Will definitely be back!
Brought my parents for my Mums birthday, didn't know whether Dad would like but he loved it - he is in his late 70s. Mam thought it was the best place she has ever been to and it was a real birthday treat for her. A lovely place to celebrate a special event and to make someone feel special 😍 staff are so friendly and helpful and price wise I was pleasantly surprised, good value. Will visit again, and soon 😁
Lunch was OK - nothing particularly noteworthy apart from excellent service.
Overall a very nice evening.
The only downside for me was the cold and indifferent attitude of the greeter at the desk.
A pity as the rest of the staff were great and the food excellent and great value.
Enjoyable night, could understand running out of lobster, but they also ran out of s chicken dish at 7.00pm in the evening, no Bacardi only Havana club, only soft drinks coke or ‘lemonade’ no soft orange drinks..... a little disappointed
Lovely evening had by all of us and I’ve little treat for my birthday which was not expected x
Our table was far too small for our group of five people. By the time all the food had arrived, there wasn’t enough room left on the table for all of our drinks and sides! We complained but we’re told that these tables were for five people
Great atmosphere amazing place food was fab hospitality was good good price
Outstanding food place and waiter
Luv this place, food & service fab, waitresses amazing, attentive service howev young fellow at door devoid of any charm, warm welcome costs nothing but means everything!
Lovely environment, and good service. The food was ok, but disappointing compared to other Ivy restaurants I’ve been to.
Good atmosphere, decent fare. Starter sides and vino good. Chocolate bombe lovely with a touch of theatre. Cheeseboard generous. Staff lovely and helpful.
Average ribeye steak at best.
Cinnamon in Irish coffee no thanks.
Excellent all round experience, no complaints at all
This was my second time to dine in The Ivy; the food was fantastic and you could feel a real buzz in the air; But I still left feeling something was missing. It’s the little things that cost nothing I find to be the most important. Sides from out dinner where forgotten, my dinner partners crap claws tasted and look like they were straight out of a packet and the portion side was on the small not medium size.
Ambiance, service and decor were all first class. The staff could not have done enough and were very friendly. The food was only mediocre at best unfortunately, at those prices you expect tasty food. The cocktails and wine were top notch. It still didn't take away from the experience that was "The Ivy".
Most likely wouldn't go back again for food but definitely would for for drinks.
food was absolutely amazing! And service was quick, attentive and friendly. Would like to especially mention Emily who was our waitress, best service we have had for a while in a restaurant- very funny, friendly and helpful and made our experience perfect. Also as we are from London she helped to recommend bars and nice places for us to visit! Would definitely return, best steak I have ever eaten.
Good ambience, reasonably priced champagne afternoon tea
Loved it , staff where just amazing and food was fabulous
