The Winding Stair
Wonderful experience! The drinks, the food, the service, were all wonderful
As always, it was a pleasure to take visiting friends to Winding Stairs... the consistent quality of food and service is impressive. The view outside is charming, specially for someone visiting Dublin. Whenever we have any close family / friends visiting us, we make it a point to take them to this place... so much of heritage plus the good food. Best of Irish !
The food was slightly disappointing. It sounded much better in the menu than it tasted on the plate. For example, one of the specials was a trout cutlet that was undercooked in the middle and the entire dish was not warm enough. I suspect this was an exception to the rule as most other dishes were great.
I love The Winding Stair. Great food and a lovely location. Our only concern was a long wait between when we finished our dinner and when we were served our dinner. Otherwise it was a great evening.
Great food and service, unfortunately to warm and loud.
Charming, attentive staff. Fabulous food. Hip contemporary environment. Would definitely return.
Fantastic meal, smart and warm service. And the view is lovely.
All the staff were really lovely and very attentive. Food was delicious and service surprisingly efficient given how busy the small dining room was. Would thoroughly recommend.
The Winding Stair is a firm favourite. I eat here every time I visit Dublin. This time, we ordered off the pre-theatre menu which was excellent value for money. The starters and mains were perfectly cooked and the portion sizes were quite generous. We had friendly, efficient service. I really can't recommend this place enough!
Wonderful food, wonderful service, and love the book store downstairs.
Very attentive staff, excellent food and great ambience.
Relaxed atmosphere with fantastic food. Very happy
I took a friend for a birthday lunch knowing she liked very good food and especially fish. I'm a vegetarian. She eats out a good deal in good restaurants and said this was 'the best lunch I've ever had out'. I was delighted the choice of The Winding Stair worked out so well for both of us. My vegetarian options were excellent. The sun shining through the huge Georgian windows, with the Liffey drifting by, and the charming and unfussy waiter made for a lovely, long, interlude.
I've recommended The Winding Stair previously, but will be doing so with renewed enthusiasm!
Thank you for a very successful treat.
It is a great restaurant. Enjoyed some nice Irish wine. Server was good and give good recommendations.
Food was incredible! Server, setting and sunshine in top floor dining room were grand.
Fabulous meal. Deffo recommend. I think the main menu price is a little too expensive but the early bird is very reasonable. I would suggest a better vegetarian option and a revamp of the bathrooms. But defo be back and defo recommend
Fantastic food, Grand Service, Spectacular View of the Liffey
Excellent food! Excellent service! Nice cozy environment! We were so glad that people introduced this local restaurant to us!! Highly recommend!
Ben our waiter was both knowledgeable and professional he was most helpful from seating to advising the menu. Our first time there and we struck up a conversation with fellow diners and made new friends. Wonderful evening
Gorgeous food, fantastic "homey" feel with the bookshelves & store.
This place was incredible and the staff were very friendly. One of the best meals I’ve had in a while.
Food was excellent as was the service. My soup and entree both had a similar cream base and my waiter made sure I was aware of it. My wife and I enjoyed the experience very much. Reasonable wine by the glass.
Everything we had was delicious and the servers and ambience was just lovely.
Never disappoints! One of my favourite places in dublin, fantastic food, great service, very reasonable early bird deals!
A great restaurant that accommodated our group easily. Food was amazing, - fresh, and delicious. Atmosphere was lovely - a beautiful room. Service was excellent. A little bit pricey tbh.
Thanks for the great food and hospitality! Special thanks to Susann!
Very lovely place, service and food were at the top !
Food was great. Views of Dublin fab. But what really did it for me was the staff. They were wonderful and seemed really passionate about the place and it showed.
Food was excellent if a little pricey. Service was excellent. Found it hard to hear each other times as we were under a speaker and there was music on even though the place was full and noisy enough on it's own.
It was my first time in this restaurant and I really liked it. Would come again soon. The service is amazing, I loved the food, atmosphere, felt really good. Thank you
The food is fantastic and there’s an excellent wine selection. The haddock poached in milk was especially good and the bread pudding dessert was delicious.
Food delicious, service brilliant. A lovely twist on some beautiful Irish dishes! Loved it as much second time around.
A lovely, quirky restaurant in a great location in the city centre, overlooking the River Liffey and the Ha'penny Bridge. The restaurant decor is very nice an the ambience was good, although the tables were quite squashed together in places.
The food was great and the menu was very different! A modern take on traditional Irish food.
The service was friendly although it did feel very rushed at times.
I would certainly recommend as a meal out with friends, family or on a date, when visiting Ireland. The menu was quite pricey but I've learnt that Dublin is quite pricey in general!
Average food with Michelin starred prices. Presumably due to its location. Had better food in lesser priced places. However service was great .
Outstanding food and service. Would recommend and return. Visited early evening so noise level was low compared to previous meals at later time.
Best meal I have had in Ireland, and one of the best ever. Inventive cuisine, perfectly prepared and presented. Warm, friendly service. Incredible location! Only downside is the noise... dining room decibel level can probably be detected by NASA. Suggest that the restaurant look into noise reduction options? A shame to that to enjoy this wonderful food one has to shout/lip-read all night.
Sensational food, friendly helpful staff, great location, excellent value - cannot be faulted !
Amazing, memorable food & service. Thank you for having us!
Food was excellent and at a great location. Restaurant itself is a little small and you are very close to other tables, but I would recommend.
A gorgeous meal for 7. We had a great table, great food, great service and a great night. The seafood platter starter was my favourite item on the menu, but everything was just delicious.
