Everything was amazing - the food, the service, the wine, and most importantly - the price! I would highly recommend this restaurant as somewhere to eat for a delicious meal - with extraordinary prices! Also the staff were extremely friendly and gave excellent wine recommendations.!

Very nice place, great value for money, friendly staff and an excellent atmosphere. The only issue was with the specific seats we were given. It was right by the window, which was excellent, but the two armchairs used are far too big for the area. They were pushed up right against the table, so getting in/out of the seat was far to tricky. Pushing them back was not an option as you'd slide down the "entrance step" which was just behind one of the seats. And having them so close to the table meant no leg room, the leg of the table was completely in the way. (Myself and my wife are relatively small people). They were great to enjoy the coffee in at the end, but not comfortable to eat at, back started aching quite early on.

All in all, very good experience, great food and friendly staff! The red armchairs by the window have to go!

Thanks again!

The best chicken wings in Dublin - this place is so underrated. The white chocolate cheesecake is delicious, the wine is good and the early bird is fantastic value. Staff are always kind and attentive. This is our favourite place in Dublin city centre and we always choose the Larder to celebrate our special days. Thank you.

A group of us went on a friends recommendation, we wanted somewhere reasonably priced with reasonable food. We couldn't have picked a better place, food was really good, especially the chicken wings, and it was great value for the early bird. The staff were friendly and efficient, and we'll definitely be returning.

Excellent service and soft ambiance, all topped off with very attentive and polite service and most of all, delicious food.

We both enjoyed all of our dishes and my lamb burger stood out, it was very juicy and tasty.

A great selection of wines and beers/ales/ciders too, with the beers/ales/ciders from a more select group of brewers rather than the typical large scale brewing companies, which is brilliant to see and another unique selling-point of this fine restaurant.

We will definitely be back.

We were lucky to get a table on a busy Saturday night, and it was well worth it! Food was fantastic but it was the service that really shone. Really friendly and helpful and we were even moved to a better table when another booking didn’t show up for their reservation

Went for the early bird menu which was the first 4 items on each of the course's.
I had the crab and crayfish and my guest had chicken wings. They were both adequate.. Tasty enough.
We both went for the lamb burger which was served with home cooked chips and salad. The portion size was good and the burger was fine. Staff were professional and polite and made the experience enjoyable. Based on food alone, there are nearby eateries selling superior offerings, hence I won't pay a return visit.

Our group had a tasty, fixed price Christmas menu with good choice. Service was friendly, considerate and very prompt. Our group of seven was delighted with the choice of venue and had a wonderful evening. One member of the group with special dietary requirements was perfectly catered for with no fuss. I would definitely book again.

The service was absolutely outstanding, the young man who was our waiter was clearly new but did an excellent job. The food was delicious (prawns & lamb burger) even though I thought I was ordering from the early bird menu and got a bit of a shock when the bill came, would absolutely have it again. Thankfully, coffee was served in tall cups and not giant bowls so didn't go cold 5 minutes after it was served & was perfect accompaniment to after dinner chats.

I booked The Larder for my birthday dinner along with 6 friends on a Saturday night in late November. I received a phone call before the meal to confirm the booking. The food, wine, service and ambiance were all really great. We all also agreed it was good value for money considering the quality of food and drink. None of us had been there before but all of us said we'd return as it was such a pleasant experience.

Met with 2 friends for early bird, not a huge choice on the early bird menu but enough for us to choose a nice 2 course meal. I had the cod and it was very good. Nice cosy atmosphere and certainly good for catching up on news as we could talk without shouting at each other. Def would go again. Very pleasant service.

Really tasty food, nice atmosphere not too formal. Starter portions seem small but mains just right. Little bit on the pricey side but the all the food was really delicious. Very seasonal great for a comforting meal on a cold day. Chocolate pot dessert was delicious but I wasn't sure it was meant to be quite so liquid inside.

We come to the restaurant for years, last time was around 6 months ago. Unfortunately we did notice a drop of the food quality. Chicken wings aside (current not on the menu) the steak which was one of the best in town, isn't cooked or prepared in the same way as before. Presentation was shocking poor (pub level).
Other than that the staff was great, ambience super, and desserts were "ok"
