Vegetarian was poor. No description on dishes as they came out. Expensive with no justifable reason.

Normally the food here is amazing... the New Years tasting menu was a bit boring and bland.

Great place and super service. But, a better selection of vegetarian/vegan option is required.

Did put in a special request which was not fulfilled but that's ok as the staff and service was excellent. Food and drinks are excellent but not value for the money they come at.

What a pleasant surprise my wife and I enjoyed the overall meal and surroundings. The waiter of Greek nationality was very informative to what was on the menu and recommend the Irish beef which was cooked to perfection. I must also add his knowledge of the wines on offer was impeccable. Next time we are in Dublin we will without doubt be calling in.

To be honest we were a little disappointed. We booked because we liked the look of the cellars and wanted to dine there. But when we got there, we were told the cellar dining area is only used at certain times, and we were seated in a glass conservatory type area which didn’t really have any style or ambience. It was also incredibly cold and the staff kept going out of a door to service people outside and it made it even colder each time. It was quite noisy as well with machinery from what I presume was the brewing process. The staff were pleasant and helpful, but the food was incredibly basic and bland for the money and absolutely nothing special considering the price and how the place is advertised. One of our party ended up sending his food back as it was really badly cooked. I would only recommend dining here if you can be assured you will be eating in the cellars as the rest of the experience isn’t that great.

Great restaurant - service was friendly but not over the top. Food was excellent, served on time and portion sizes were very well judged as well as seasoning. Awesome value for money and will be back soon!

In general it was a very pleasant stay or a pleasant meal. However, I had booked the location especially because of the pictures in the internet and was a little disappointed that we (on a not very busy Monday) were placed in the modern but not so atmospheric bistro on the ground floor and not in the extremely stylish cellar vault. The quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff mixed with a place in the cellar vault would have been 5 stars plus, so there are very good 4 stars.

Absolutely delicious food and friendly service. Restaurant in a cavern below a bar. Bar itself very noisy with loud music but restaurant only has background music. I thoroughly enjoyed the seared foie gras.

Not for lunch.
Food was bland & overpriced for the portion sizes. Service was very cold and didn't add to the experience.
Have been there for the tapas and taps food in the bar in the evenings and the food was much nicer but you can hardly hear yourself speak with the loud music.

Restaurant was so much fun! The decor and atmosphere was unique and so much fun because of its uniqueness. The food was awesome as well. It seemed to be a bit understaffed, however that wouldn't stop me from going back again. The food and quantities was well worth it!

Was there for over 20 minutes and our waiter never took our drink order or brought us water. Restaurant was not busy. I expect more from a place with these kind of prices. We ended up leaving.

The atmosphere was really good, but the music was waaaay too loud compared to the stylish and relaxing environment. But once the food hits the table, the music becomes irrelevant. Never before have I tasted anything so delicious at this price point. I cannot recommend this place enough! If you are in the neighbourhood, do yourself a favor, and visit. It will blow your mind.

A genuinely fun time. The vaulted spaces were small enough for quiet conversation. The food is excellent. The lamb duo and beef duo were delightful pairings of braised and grilled meats. The server, Dylan, was attentive and professional, but also enjoyed some banter with us. This was an excellent restaurant for our first evening in Dublin.

I ordered the beef cheek ravioli special for €16 for lunch. I received 5 ravioli which is absolutely insane for the price. It was more like a starter.

Visiting from another country...means relying heavily on websites and reviews. The location description address had us in circles. Maybe give a reference point on the site (ex: next to the name of a big building or located in a plaza). The website does indicate two different places for the site, but we didn’t understand that until we got there. We had reservations for the basement, but they were for outside location. The staff didn’t bend on helping us get a table even with reservations. They were more considered with serving the locals upstairs. The food on the menu was okay, but overall this place seemed overrated. Ended up going to a place we thoroughly enjoyed.

The menu was limited and didn't represent value for money. There was no flexibility to ask for the ala cart menu. The early bird was very limited particularly the starters. Although the beef that I had was good it was fairly sparse in volume.

We ate in the Stack A restaurant a floor below the busy bar area. Food was good, atmosphere nice, lots of options for tables- open or in a personal spot. Seemed a bit rushed, but we experienced that in most restaurants in Dublin.
