Wilde's at the Lodge Ratings and Reviews
What a beautiful setting. Delicious appetizers of stuffed cannelloni with wild mushrooms. Foie gras in a little trifle glass with raspberry ice. Yum! We had Turbot and scallops and duck. Everything was delicious. Good bottle of wine. Our 45th anniversary. Will have a hard time celebrating 46. The Ashford Lodge is a spectacular place to stay. Staff and management can't be more accommodating. Therese was charming and made sure everything was great. Will look forward to coming back.
The whole experience was truly amazing and I highly recommend to dine here! To the decor, staff, drinks and of course the food were all top notch. The quality of our meal was very flavorful and delicious. William and the mixologist Johnny were exceptional- very professional and accommodating. We loved it so much we are dining there again. A must go to spot- if you are in the area visiting.
Such a memorable and fantastic venue with outstanding staff and customer service. Food was exceptional. The locaiton, the ambiance, the food the staff all made this an outstanding and memorable visit for a special occassion meal. Many thanks to all. Michael Cahill
We stayed at the Lodge and ate dinner one night here - it was spectacular - food was great fresh creative service was over the top - 6 of us had an unforgettable meal - our next night we ate at the Dungeon at the castle and we regretted that we wished we had come back to Wilde's !!! Great view of Lough Corribbe too-
The food is very good and the location is lovely. But the servers have not been trained at all. They are very sweet, and friendly. They are just in over their heads and shouldn't be in this environment. They were dripping wine all over the table, total inability to answer questions on the menu or wine list and long breaks in service that then came to a screeching halt. Our sides were served when our entrees were almost finished (and would have been finished had we not delayed and slowed eating in hopes of having sides but didn't want to eat cold mains). Then our plates set uncleared for an awkwardly long time. And dessert didn't show up before we gave up and left. It's not the servers fault. Management needs to hire staff trained for the price point and environment they are aiming at, or shut down until staff is trained. I felt like I was their on the job training. Management was not present on the floor, and considering the small size of the restaurant and the obviously green staff, that is inexcusable. Considering the amount of staff at the castle that is trained for fine service, it's bizarre they are trying to run this restaurant so I'll equipped.
On arriving at the lodge I was stopped by security to be informed the hotel was closed to the public. The duty manager came out to tell me the same. I showed him my confirmation e mail for the booking but he told me that it was closed and I would have to come back again in the future.... No negotiating with him at all. Not even a promise of a free drink or meal on my return. I was so upset as it was my partners birthday and this was my present. It wasn't about just a meal it was meant to be about the experience.... And some experience it was. For a hotel group of its status the customer service was non existent. My sister had been considering here as a venue for her wedding but now they have just lost this business. Totally upset. Ruined the night for us.
