The Old Music Shop Ratings and Reviews
Lovely surroundings and decor. Tables were nicely set out. Food was good, freshly cooked and just the right amount. The service could have been better as it wasn't that busy. I had to get up twice to go and find a waiter to ask for the dessert menu and to request the bill. I would return to the restaurant again without a doubt.
Myself and a group of girlfriends had a pre-theatre dinner here last Saturday. It was a perfect venue as the Gate Theatre is a short walk away. The staff are very friendly and the service was fast and efficient. We were also able to have a drink in the beautiful seating area in the hotel after our meal. I highly recommend the Old Music Shop as it provides a lovely relaxed atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. It is also good value for money expecially the pre-theatre menu of 2 courses for 20euro.
Made online booking on the basis of the menu we found online.
Got to the place, were shown to a table and were given a menu that was nothing resembling the online menu and to be quite honest was abismal.
After enquiring, we were told that because it was a busy bank holiday, the menu was smaller. I said it was not smaller, it was completely different. The server then said she would bring the menu from downstairs.
It arrived and it was exactly the same menu, with an extra starter and main course.
We left without ordering.
On the subject of it being busy, there was 4/5 tables eating when we arrived. Maybe this is classed as busy by dublin standards, but we in the rest of the country are able to handle bigger tasks.
Wouldn't recommend the place to anyone based on the reception I was given by the staff.
I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch last Friday, meeting old friends and chatting over good food and a second glass of wine! For most of us, it was our first time at the Old Music Shop and we agreed to relocate from our previous meeting-places, so hopefully we will be with you again in mid-September, for our next gathering. In fact, I was so impressed that I later brought my partner there, for a quick meal on the way to a nearby event we were attending. We explained that because of traffic problems, we were in a bit of a rush and your staff facilitated us by recommending fish and chips and producing it extremely quickly. Full marks for both quality and service!
A great eating place on the Northside of the city. So close to cultural/arts venues. I was there with 2 friends for my birthday. We all opted for the burgers which had a great variety of toppings to chose from. We spent a lot of time deciding as all sounded great. They were delicious and we really like the home made relish and the flowery bun that it came with. You could have opted for a salad instead of the bun. A bucket of good sized chips accompanied the meal. This was my 3rd time there and can't praise it highly enough
I do feel nostalgic for the Walton Music Shop but am delighted in what they have done with the place. It has brought more life to the Square.
I was so disappointed with the meal. I ordered a pizza and it literally had no taste, I wondered if it was a frozen pizza. Also there were not many people there but the service was not very on the ball, they took my plate before I had finished, and gave a jug of water without glasses. The decor is very nice and there it seems very child-friendly, but I would not eat the food again.
Staff were very friendly despite our numerous changes in the numbers attending! Food was delicious, we had the Christmas menu which was great value at €25 for a 4 course meal. Would like to see a larger choice of wine on the menu but overall lovely place and would go again.
Unfortunately on the evening we visited the
service was haphazard to say the least. The menus were slow to arrive & there were not many other customers there. To be fair we were told that the burgers we ordered would take 20 mins to cook. We were clear that we need to be out by 7:40 & our order was taken at 6:40. The food arrived at 7:25 giving us a very short time to eat. We ended up eating about half & then had to run. It's a pity because the individual staff members were really nice & friendly. Organisation & co-ordination needs to be a lot better
