Our gnocchi was completely overcooked. When we complained we were told by waitress "it's meant to be like that ... we cook it so it melts on the tongue". Our other friends meal was cold. Far too expensive for what you get. We decided not to give a tip as it wasn't deserved only to discover afterwards on receipt that we were charged a percentage of the bill anyway as a tip! We won't be going back!

Good food, friendly staff but we were seated beside the door (despite booking weeks beforehand) and it was freezing. When we were finishing our deserts we were brought our bill and informed we had to move as they had another booking.

Cozy atmosphere. Had a family dinner with 7 people and had back corner to ourselves. I thoroughly enjoyed the roasted chicken with butternut squash and risotto. Others in our group enjoyed the special of Sea bream and the Gnocchi.

Met a friend visiting from France for brunch - a difficult meal to deliver well. Perfect eggs. Friendly and prompt service without being rushed - excellent location for getting to the theatre too. My French friend, a frequent visitor, said she would tell people about a restaurant which she considered to be a "find".

The food and ambience was amazing. Unbelievable value for food. However, the servers made you feel like a burden. They brought my partner a starter and did not bring mine for 2nd. I had to ask them for it and the lady did not apologise, just seemed a bit annoyed. I could not fault the food, price or restaurant but the service really needs to be improved. They made us feel as if they were annoyed by us. We set down at half five and they said you have to be gone by 8. When they came to give menus the waiter just dropped them in the middle of the table. Very unwelcoming

The food, wine and service were good and there was a friendly and informal welcome. The only real complaint was that it was crowded and very noisy, being busy on the Friday evening we went and because , as so often now, the room had no sort of sound deadening material on the walls and floor. Much of the time we could not hear what we were saying to each other. If this were solved, it would be an excellent spot but we would probably go back anyway but preferably at a less busy and crowded time.

This is commendable in a city-centre area which picks up a lot of passing tourist trade.

We were in Dublin for vacation and business. We found the Larder on Open Table, and based on the menu and other reviews made a reservation. The food was great, but the highlight of this restaurant is the people. We made a late reservation, and even though we were their last reservation of the evening, they went out of their way to be sure we had a great experience. They even went so far as to move our entire party to another table, when a better table opened up. The food was also excellent, as was the beer. The waitstaff gladly made recommendations, and could not have been nicer. If I return to Ireland again, the Larder will be among one of the restaurants I will definitely return.

We were very disappointed in the Larder. We had a 6:00 Reservation and arrived on time. We were told they needed the table back by 8:00, earlier would be better. We said, fine, we had theater tickets and would like to be finished by 7:15. At 7:00 we had not been served our entré. We reminded our server.At 7:15 we still had not been served. At 7:20 we were given our meals to go. No time to argue, we paid full fare.

Lunch with long time friends coincidentally, menu was limited and as such, we ALL opted for the
Fish and Chips lunch and we all agreed it was very good but fish portion was very small. Very well cooked and great hand cut potato chips. Very nice interior. Bathroom is awkward to get to down a very narrow stairs and could prove difficult to access for some people. Service was very good and staff very friendly.

Great atmosphere and great food - A hidden gem in Dublin. The front of house staff were a bit annoyed that I moved the reservation back half an hour and greeted me with 'Your the one who pushed back the reservation', which I wasn't overly impressed with.

Other than that I really enjoyed everything. I will recommend this to everyone and will be back myself in the future.
