The food is always good and reliable, and the service courteous and conscientious.
This is commendable in a city-centre area which picks up a lot of passing tourist trade.

Great food and service, staff couldn't be nicer or more efficient but ambiance lacked and on a Saturday afternoon the restaurant was a bit too quiet for my liking.

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.

Was a wonderful dinner, but slightly loud due to the presence of several large groups, but the food was excellent and they handled the gluten-free requirements of one of our party expertly and the meal was enjoyed by all!

I try to eat one meal at The Larder every time I visit Dublin, and it always lives up to the standard it set for itself. The food is genuinely well-prepared, the wine is delightful, and the wait-staff are first-rate.

the larder was a pleasant enough place. disappointed that only a wine licence available
menu was good I thought it quote noisy at times. Its a nice place for pre theatre or concert
don't know if I would be interested in going to it for any other reason.

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.

We had a fantastic lunch here on St Paddy's Day - obviously one of the busiest days in Dublin - but the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We had a table of 8, our flight was delayed - twice - and we had to put our booking back. They cheerfully said "We'll look after you" - and so they did.
We had a fantastic lunch here - really very good indeed. Delicious steaks washed down with a fantastic red wine and a great bread and butter pudding - all very reasonably priced.

Honestly, this place could justifiably charge twice as much for the food if the service was up to scratch. When taking our order our server stared into the middle-distance, no attempts to converse or friendly banter. After finishing our mains we were left wanting dessert but the menus never came. Chatting with colleagues seemed to be prioritised over keeping an eye on the tables. We ended up just calling it a night. Your food deserves better!

I have eaten here a few times, and found the food to be of quite a good standard, however was let down this time.
Poached eggs were overcooked for me and my friend, and the beans were cold meaning they had to be sent back to the kitchen to be redone. I was quite disappointed as a result and not sure whether I will go back.
On the positive side, I would definitely recommend the coffee

Myself and my wife had a lovely dinner here on a Saturday evening. Had a nice table at the front of the restaurant.

Would highly recommend the chicken wings, not overly saucy like in so many places. A very pleasant meal in a very busy restaurant, make sure to book, saw several people turned away on the night.

Met friends for a post Christmas get together. Ambience was lovely, service was excellent and food was very nice. We all had the Rib Eye steaks, which were really succulent.

If I had one request it would be to serve it with real, home made chunkie chips.

Recommended.
