Best service we've had in quite some time! Food was gorgeous and terrace really lovely. Recommended.
Lovely restaurant good atmosphere good service, terrace is lovely nice view. The menu could be a little bit more extensive
Lovely food, warm atmosphere, good humoured staff.
Incredible food, highly accommodating staff, and a charming, intimate venue made for the perfect celebratory dining experience for my girlfriend’s birthday!
We felt very well looked after here, and the outside ambience was great. We shared the potted crab on rye which was excellent, before moving onto a delicious, very plump, rump steak cooked to our liking with the creative addition of bone marrow, and a beautifully braised pork belly with delicious crackling. My only criticism was that the apricot with the pork belly was maybe too dominant, but really the food was great. We'd like to emphasise how helpful and professional our waiter was, who had the knack of appearing when we needed him for advice and ordering, and allowing us to enjoy our meal undisturbed otherwise. The timing of the courses was just right, not rushed or too slow. This is a great restaurant with a lovely outdoor and indoor ambience, and we heartily recommend it.
A really enjoyable meal in the Winding Stair (outdoor) yesterday evening. Food was delicious, service so friendly & welcoming and the staff made the experience very comfortable by clearly observing Covid obligations like hand sanitising, distancing etc. Looking forward to my next visit!
Excellent quality food and very well presented. Service was 100% and our waiter was knowledgeable on the wine list. Great atmosphere on the rooftop outside, not too noisy.
Lovely staff and delicious food.
Excellent service, lovely outdoor setting, great food
Amazing. Pearce lovely. Food super outdoor seating area brill. Loved it and will be back.
Great Irish produce, beautifully prepared and presented. Delicious wines by the glass too.
Food was excellent, really good quality ingredients, and outdoor setting was lovely. A nice relaxing 2.5 hours on a Sunday afternoon spent there.
Terrace setting stunning lovely atmosphere, staff so friendly, food was excellent, really enjoyed the experience for special birthday. Would definitely recommend.
Had a great time, food was amazing, service on point, atmosphere and setting just lovely. Definitely recommend.
Fabulous thoroughly enjoyed -delicious food will be back
Excellent meal in lovely surroundings. Beautiful food and great service.
A very pleasant experience overall, except that we both had the same main course and in one the meat was extremely tough so there was inconsistency.
Fantastic service. Beautiful outdoor balcony/terrace seating and delicious food. Great return to dining with friends for me. Thank you!
I’ve always loved this place and coming out of lockdown, if anything it’s even better. The outdoor space is really well done, the service as good as ever and the food is great. It was my first choice for a meal out after a year and a half and was so good I booked another table straight away.
Absolutely delicious food and wine served on the outdoor terrace with lovely view over the ha'penny bridge. In spite of heavy rain the terrace was well sheltered but perhaps a long sleeved layer to be recommended on a colder day. I can imagine perfect on a sunny day.
Very interesting menu with a Legal Eagle collaboration, another restaurant worth a visit
Beautiful food and wonderful service. Can’t wait to book again!
Very accepting and accommodating of a toddler and young child. Lovely atmosphere for city rooftop. Good quality ingredients but our guest found rump steak chewy and tasteless. Pork belly very tasty. Plaice unremarkable. Wine excellent.
We had a delicious meal here in the lovely atmosphere of the outdoor area. It was a lovely return to Dublin dining after a long time and I commend the restaurant for its resilience.
Relaxed summer lunch on lovely terrace. The sharing ribs were delicious. Not my first time here and won’t be my last.
The food was delicious and all of the staff were the most pleasant and welcoming I’ve ever come across in a restaurant. Can’t wait to go back.
Great night - and lovely to be out out. Slight price increase which is I stand able given the limited seating, however justifiable but one would hope this is not a template for a return to full occupancy.
Delicious food - oh yes! Really enjoyed our experience and we had a lovely time! It was great to be able to wine and dine again after a long while.
Food was good, couple of things stopped it being top class. Apricot with the pork didn't work, too sweet. Coleslaw with the steak doesn't work either ,off balance. I'd look again at the menu, it's very close to Michelin standard, but not there yet. Noise from next door is also a little off putting, but won't be a problem when you get back indoors. I'm being hyper critical here, if you are a customer reading this, please go there, it's a very good experience. For the restaurant, service was probably some of the best I experienced, food is mostly perfect, just a couple of things to look at. I will be back though
Fab food. Great service.
Too class service and food standard, would highly recommend.
Had dinner here with three pals. The service was excellent and the staff really nice and chatty.
I had the pan fried sole which was well presented with little blobs of Mayo squeezed around the edge of the plate and some pea sprout sprinkled on it. Tasted good. Wasn't worth 27 euro thoug. Nice ambiance, very good service although I did notice there wasn't a single female on staff in the kitchen or front of house.
Atmosphere, wine selection and food was fantastic but the service was outstanding and made the evening even more enjoyable, the waiter was very helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant. I will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great quality meal and relaxed atmosphere at a very competitive price. 5/5
Finally made it to winding stair since the last lockdown and they didn’t let us down. Brilliant experience and we will be back.
Lovely food, great ambience and great service. It was ever-so-slightly more expensive than we thought, but don't mind too much as we haven't been out for dinner in so long!
I found that it was very cold we asked could they put the cover up and heaters but there was something about not complying with HSE Rules therefore we were extremely cold, the table cloths were blowing, hard to enjoy also my friends asked for pino grigo wine and they had none, the toilets were extremely dark a safety hazard, overall not value for money and I would not be booking a table again
Lovely outdoor terrace. A bit chilly if you are eating later. But we had a great dinner!
Food was very tasty. Service was excellent. Very enjoyable evening
