Heard good things, overall disappointed. Seating area on the rooftop section I had to sit on a puff with no back support, outrageous carry on not having decent seating.

Cocktail Menu was poor and confusing, and to boot the staff kept taking the menus back off our table which I later found out was due to guests robbing them! Staff were not attentive and were not observant when drinks were low.

For a Better experience, attentiveness from staff and ambience Peruke & Periwig is streets ahead. Save your cash for that establishment.

Incredible cocktail bar! Cocktails were constructed well and with care. Sharing plates were the perfect size (antipasti board and crispy pork belly) not to mention delicious. Overall, lovely experience. Would recommend to anyone.

We were having food with drinks and the quality of the food and drinks was good but the tables and
Location upstairs was not. Table too small .
Seemed like customers were being squashed in
To get maximum return which is understandable
But a little uncomfortable as we seemed to be very
Close to other customers and their conversations.
Still great range of cocktails .
My opinion is that the location we were in should be for drinks only .

We didn't have a great start as we were left waiting for 5 minutes before someone answered the door to let us in! But once inside the service was excellent, attentive knowledgeable staff. Great food and a great selection of beautifully served cocktails in a lovely setting in the rooftop terrace. Overall very impressed

Very bad service, waited for 20 mins for waitress and by the time we ordered the kitchen was closed. No atmosphere, won’t be going ever again and will be recommending others to stay away.

It was my first visit to VCC and was absolutely impressed! From service, indoor decor, food to cocktails - everything deserves 5 star rate! Great spot for a catch up with friends or romantic date. Cosy, beautiful spot, absolute gem among all those noisy puns in the city centre. Definitely worth to recommed.

Great cocktails and bites and no complaints about the service. The cocktail lounge itself is wonderful but the outdoor space could do with a makeover - it let’s the side down a bit.

Great cocktails and food! Fairly priced and good ambiance. Service was not great, forgot order a couple of times and didn’t bring last drink. I’m sure they were busy on other floors so maybe that was the reason.

Lovely place really enjoyed it wasn't happy with the brunch menu the evening menu looked much better or the fact that we were going to be chased out we only had the table for an hour cause we were 15 mins late for the reservation. What really made it for us was our excellent waitress Annemarie who completely looked after use once we where dealing with her there was no table issues and the cocktails flowed and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with .

I booked a table here recently - upstairs on recommendation - and passed a lovely afternoon in pleasant, laid back surroundings sipping delicious cocktails.
I had to telephone to say we would be later than expected due to a hold up and they held the table for us which was great.
The only thing which wasn't mentioned at any stage (until we were comfortably ensconced) was that they only book tables for a couple of hours, which was a little disappointing as we would otherwise have stayed quite happily.
Overall we loved the vibe, the decor and the friendly staff. Food not rated as we did not eat.

I was so glad to surprise my husband taking him to VCC as it was as good as the reviews I had read, he loved the whole experience.
Having to enter through a nondescript door was great & all the staff were wonderful. Just one niggle was that my husband is on the larger side & squashing into a small table for two by the wall was uncomfortable particularly as the weather was hot. When we finished eating we went upstairs which was better & more comfortable.
Cocktail selection is huge - I tried Banshee which was ok but too alcohol tasting for me so I then got a Bellini which I have to say was best Bellini I've ever had.

It was my birthday & I mentioned on the phone that I'd never been before. It was a once off. They advised I sit in the "rooftop terrace" - it was esentially a smoking area, with no view. I wasn't impressed to be totally honest, the drinks were v good but the ambience was so-so for such an occassion. Indoors looked nice. I don't understand them putting people who had never been, who are celebrating a special occassion - in the dingiest part. I won't be back.

Great spot - had heard great things and totally lived up to the hype. Cocktail list was varied and fun to pore over, and the martini was clean and crisp and the best I've had in ages. Don't remember our server's name but she was really lovely, attentive but not all over us either. The cheese board was brillo too. Cheers.

Quirky place to surprise my sister with. The waitress was brilliant recommending cocktails to our taste when we didn’t know where to start. Great ambience. I’ve been there for drinks both times I visited Dublin and will make sure I book for next time too.
Note: we didn’t eat so that’s the only reason I selected 3 stars for food - it wouldn’t allow me to leave it blank.
