Lunch for 4 people. Everyone was satisfied with their meals. Good variety on the menu. Staff were efficient and friendly and welcoming. Nice ambience. Will go back.

Fun experience on our trip to Waterford. WE each had simple meals - mussels, risotto and burgers - but each diner was pleased. Good selection of wines and fair prices. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. Muzak was a bit loud at our table and she graciously lowered the volume for us.

The food was nice, if overpriced for rather basic pub food. The steak at 24 euro for lunch deserves better service. The service was disjointed and indifferent - we had 3 different girls serving our table and no one seemed to know what was going on. More like trying to get a restaurant meal in a pub - and it wasn't that busy. We had a hard time getting drinks we ordered (even though we were seated next to the bar) and we waited about 15 minutes for the dessert menu. So overall the food was nice, but I wouldn't rush back as the service is very slow and not very friendly - for the price you are paying - you would get much better service in a restaurant.

We had a very enjoyable dinner in the lovely rooftop restaurant. Food , drinks and service were all very good, and we really appreciated the birthday plate they brought out for my husband.

Cenamos toda la familia, el servicio fue excelente al igual que la comida. El ambiente era muy bueno y no tardaron en servirnos la comida. La comida era de cinco estrellas y había mucha variedad donde elegir.

Lovely food, the restaurant is very clean and the staff very nice, friendly and helpful.
Just two things for me it’s not right for the restaurant,
1. The waitress should wear a uniform, jeans at a restaurant with this level is bad
2. And why a radio (walky-talky)???
But this is my opinion.
The night was lovely, thank you THE REG.

We dined at The Reg on Saturday 10th February 2918 as we had friends visiting from London. They are well travelled and are used to dining in London. They commented that the restaurant was on par with any restaurant they've eaten in around London, but at a fraction of the cost. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and efficient and on a very cold night, the ambiance was warm & cosy. We liked the choice of music on the whole except we all chuckled at one Christmas song which made its way into the compilation. Just a triviality so no points deducted!! It was a Simon Cowell "yes" from us all!!

Dining room was being renovated and a poky part of the bar was passed off as a restaurant. If I had known that I would not have booked. Very disappointed.

It was late booking so very happy with service and menu on such a busy night on lead up to Christmas. It was a party of 4 and seating was a little cramped at our table., but as late booking not complaints.

The food was perfect, really delicious. Staff were very friendly but unfortunately the service wasn't the best. This wouldn't put me off going back. We had booked a table for 19.45 but not seated until after 20.00. Then waited for a menu for about 10 mins. Overall we enjoyed eating in The Reg and would definitely go back.

Lovely spot, unfortunately rooftop bar was being renovated so we didn’t get the table we requested but the server couldn’t have been nicer about it

Despite hearing negitive reviews of the Reg (bar food downstairs ), I thoroughly enjoyed the venue & menu of the Reg restaurant (upstairs), as did my companions (some of whom weren't initially happy about the choice of venue). The staff were very helpful. Perhaps include more celiac options. We would definitely return.

Superb Sunday lunch for the family, all tastes catered for. My dish of choice was lamb shank cooked to perfection, full of delicious flavors.
Cozy atmosphere in October, excellent service from Frank. Deserts were delicious, the melting chocolate cannonball was both entertaining and divine.

We were touring Ireland and found The Reg from trip advisor. Had a very good meal and Emily our waitress was friendly, answering any queries we had regarding the menu and was efficient making our meal a pleasant experience.

I wanted a special meal for our last night in Ireland. Not knowing the area, but knowing Open Table, I used the service for this reservation, and I wasn't disappointed. We were not able to sit with the water view because that is reserved for drinks, but we were seated in a very cosy area which was wonderful. The Thai and salmon salad I had for starters was one of the best I have had, and my cousin was equally pleased with her Caesar's Salad. I had the whole sole - cooked perfectly and served with mashed potatoes and greens. My cousin's chicken equally as tender, also served with the mashed potatoes and greens. We treated ourselves to dessert, and found out we had received them as a compliment from the management! It doesn't get much better than that - plus another chocolate dessert was served as an added bonus. (Don't get the idea you can always receive this sort of service!). The whole evening was very memorable, and we were very sad to be leaving this wonderful country. Looking forward for a return visit soon

We had a group of 8 looking for a nice spot to dine. We were a little late for our reservation but our table was waiting. Even though the bar was very busy due to local sporting event; service was good, food was good and were we're thankful to be there.

Staff were not aware of the booking we had made (although they never actually checked). The restaurant was closed and only had a bar table for 2 by the door. They seemed very uninterested in us or whether we had a good experience. We left without eating.

Been to the reg on a number of occasions (both for lunch/dinner or just a night out). Staff are always extremely friendly and polite. There was one girl in particular the last time I was there (last Saturday),didn't get her name but she was so professional and really nice when serving us. Food was lovely,price was great and overall experience excellent. Love the reg and would highly recommend it.

Good food. Local produce. Needs a bathroom upstairs for restaurant dining. Need to manoeuvre two flights of stairs for restaurant, not suitable for people with mobility issues. Not wheelchair accessible.
