                              We had a lovely waiter, although it took her a while to warm up to us. Food was good and portions were reasonable but the cod pieces were more batter than fish. Cocktails are an experience but do think they are a little pricey.

                              Fantastic experience at the VCC, loved the secret door. Cocktails were fab and staff excellent. We had the sharing seafood platter for 2, was delishious and plenty of it. Got the parmasan fries also, yummy. I've already booked again for the summer with friends.

                              1st time here, service and setting absolutely lovely, wouldn’t recommend the food, it’s nice but not worth the money. Would definitely come back but for cocktails only.

                              It was a very special night, it was a pity that we couldn’t stay longer as we have to give the table back. Amazing experience, I definitely recommend and looking forward to go back.

                              Make sure to request the terrace IF it's a warm sunny day or evening OR the fireplace area if it's not, do this in your reservation process. The 1st level is very plain and nothing special. The cocktails we had were just okay, the Seafood board WAY overpriced, stick with the cheese board if any food at all. its a fun place to have a cocktail in Temple Bar for a quiet private romantic time, but not for singles looking to chat with others.

                              Hi Christine, Thank you for the feed back, the Sharing platters are quite new so all comments welcome. You'll be happy to hear that we have a full refurb on the way so we will be back to full capacity very soon. Unfortunately VCC wouldn't be great for mingling as we are a fully table serviced venue, saying that, when you do find 'the one' we'd be happy to host you with a drink on us, Thanks again, VCC Team

                              It was my birthday. We were met at the door by a woman at 10:05 PM, our reservation was 10PM, and told immediately that no more food would be served. After I had spoken on the on the phone ensuring the last orders were at 10:15 PM. She was not very welcoming, and lead us downstairs to a corner seat. The waitress we had seemed annoyed by us. It took about 10 mins for us to even receive water, and another 20 / 30 by the time we had drinks. She was rude and extremely slow. We even ordered a drink that never arrived. Then she offered it on the house when we asked for the check as she had forgotten. We said no, and left. The food / plates were still on the table. It had never been cleared. I won’t be back. So disappointing.

                              Hi Clare, Thank you for such a detailed review. I'm currently looking into what happened here. I'm Surprised to hear that any of our staff we're rude, i can assure you if you found this to be the case it was not intentional, our crew are there to insure our guests have the best possible experience. I'm happy to hear when you received the Cocktail it was offered on the house. I will be reviewing CCTV for how many visits our server visited your table and how long the drinks took to arrive. VCC

                              Amazing venue, really intimate, perfect for date nights. I had the best cocktail I've ever tasted there - THE DIRTY WIZARD - sweet with a kick. Tasted like a dessert! The food was yummy, we had a platter and felt it was good value. I felt like the entrance experience wasn't as expected (the whole speakeasy secret door) as there was a big queue outside, and they seem to enter people and take orders in batches which lost a bit of that personal touch. But saying that the staff were lovely, very attentive, and I would highly recommend for the atmosphere and experience alone!

                              This is a place for cocktails keep this in mind and you may not be disappointed. We thought it was a dinner and drinks kind of place, it is not. The cocktails and service are very good. The lower portion of the club is dark and you may find it romantic. The upper portion of the club was brighter and better furnished. We thought the food was terrible, but we are American and did not find much of the traditional food in Ireland very tasty.

                              Hi Joe, Happy to hear the Service and Cocktails were up to standard. Sorry you didn't enjoy our food offering, whilst there is larger plates on offer we are a Cocktails, Small plates & Sharing venue. Disappointed to hear you've had no luck with Trad Irish food as there is plenty to choose from around the city. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay, Cheers and thank you for the feed back, VCC Team

Just so lovable, she made our experience even better. We didn’t eat anything so can’t say anything about the food. Will definately be back if in Dublin again.

                              Recommended to us so booked on line. Quirky front door hides the charm and character of a great club. Huge range of cocktails, and reasonable food menu. We have a few sharing platters between the 4 in our group. Really tasty, well resented and good value. Highly recommend a visit, but be sure to book in advance.

                              This is an absolutely exquisite place, the drinks were first class and the food was unexpectedly outstanding. Could go every night for a month and still not get through everything I wanted to try on the menu. We are always in a search for excellent cocktail spots and this one is now one of my all time international favourites. Our server (from Belfast) was beyond lovely and made great recommendations.
