    The food was great, overall experience good too, young chap who served us was great too. Atmosphere and design of the restaurant, beautiful. Only at greeting a blond girl, does not understand the meaning of customer service. Had a table booked for 4 people at 4 pm. Arrived at 2 pm and rang and sent an email on open table that day to extend party to 6 people. Place was empty so shouldn't be an issue. However she had to make a deal out of it, treating customers badly questioning if rang and sent email, when there wasn't an issue with getting a table anyway. Maybe train her on more customer service in the end they who make her have a job. That's the only reason why not 5 stars.

    An enjoyable evening with very good food and excellent service. It was a bit noisy due to groups of younger adult diners and drinkers. Overall the core food and service offering was to be commended.

    The salmon dinner with potatoes and veg was absolutely top notch perfection. The setting was boho and the only flaw of the evening was that we hoped to sit up on the rooftop and it was closed.

    Would definitely recommend The Reg for food and service, the food was plenty and the service was second to none, I had chowder and it was one of the best I’ve had on my travels my wife had calamari and it was cooked perfect, the only one thing I would recommend is that the batter on the fish for the main would be a little lighter but the fish was fresh and tasty and my wife loved her main of roast rib of beef!! Thanks to the staff for a great dining experience 👍🏻

    I made a booking through open table for Tuesday 8th February @ 18.15, which was confirmed & I was even sent a reminder, I was visiting Waterford for a few days, when we arrived for our booking The Reg was completely closed & locked up, apparently they don’t open Tuesday’s but our booking had been confirmed, you can imagine our disappointment especially as we had been out all day & had rushed to get dressed for dinner & be there on time 😡😡😡

    We prebooked as there busy. Service was excellent. We sat on the terrace lots of sun and some shade. The food choice was great especially for gluten free which makes a nice change and was delish. We had a few cocktails that were yummy. Would recommend to all AA**

    The Reg and Suas are always a great place for a great bit of food! It can get a little noisy when sitting outside because the proximity or the quays, but it's an ignorable noise. For and service is always top class!
