Lovely meal with very pleasant staff. I had chicken and my partner had venison, both were very tasty. Desserts were lovely as well. Fairy busy for a Mon night with a lively atmosphere. Back again for New Years eve. A little pricey but overall, no complaints.

The restaurant was very busy at. 1.30pm on Sunday for brunch so I was glad we had booked a table but there was a lovely atmosphere. The waitress was really helpful and the food was lovely. The wine was however I thought very expensive. House wine started at €28 a bottle and deserts were very expensive. One of the party had ice cream, 3 scoops and it was €7.50. That's too expensive in my mind. At 3pm another waitress put the bill on the table and asked could we vacate the table as it was booked. At no time when I booked the table was I told there was a time limit so this was very annoying. Although we enjoyed our food and the atmosphere I wouldn't go back again because of the prices.

I found the set menu very over priced for what we got and quite an increase on the normal rate just because its Christmas.

Excellent food as always
But a little sneaky increasing the early bird prices and not mentioning it on the website

My crab cakes were tough and overcooked. And the coffee at the end of the meal had a terrible burnt taste.

We were told our time was running out after an hour, apparently there were only 1h and 15min allows for you to enjoy your brunch,I found that ridiculous.
If we make a reservation online for 5 or more you have to enter your card details in case of any cancellations they charge you. I found this ridiculous too.
The staff was really nice but I wouldn't recommend the place,I won't repeat for sure.

On sat i ordered avocado, buffalo mozarella, vchargrilled vne tomato on chargrilled toast with poached eggs. I was so so surprised to find the stack of food on top of the chargrilled toast was absolutely fridge cold. Initially i figured it was meant to be served in this way. However thinking more about it... You just expect your toast to be served warm and straight from the grill. Unfortunstely the toast was so cold i believe it coukd have easily been prepared the night before. Same with the charred tomato. It was also frige cold - also preped the eve before? So we had a 10 am sitting and were 1st in the door and i understand it doesnt give refrigerated food much time to reach room temperature. Can you let me know please if a plating up / serving error occurred in putting the cold ingredients together cold.... As i said my expectation of toast / chargrilled toast/tomatos is that they are warm dishes on a winters morning.
I then asked for an additional slice of chargrilled toast to warm my belly & accompany the rest of the lovely poached eggs. However i was informed there was none and got a round of plain white toast.
It was such a disappointing experience and i chose San Lorenzo for our special brunch as it always appears in the top 10 dublin brunch searchrs.
I look forward to an explanation - or is that exactly how you gemerally serve that dish even in winter?
Kind regards
Aileen

I haven't eaten here in a while but I must say it is as good if not better than I recall.
The staff were helpful and attentive and accommodated a small change for my main course without issue.
The wine selection was good and both our starters and mains were cooked perfectly with a good portion size.
Overall, we had a great dinner with good atmosphere and all at San Lorenzo's were friendly with great service.
I won't leave it so long between visits! Thank you guys 😁👍👍

This restaurant has a great reputation but I was underwhelmed by my dishes. Nothing wrong with them but I wasn't excited either! The service was excellent and it has a nice atmosphere so an okay experience, I just don't think worth the hype.

myself and 5 of my friends went here Saturday night, we ordered drinks and they weren't served , we then had to remind the waitress about the drinks and after another 10 mins or so they finally arrived.
we got starters - these where nice
we then got our mains and my chicken was raw - i told the waitress that my food was raw and she left the plate there on the table and said she would come back now - 5 minutes later she came back and said it didn't look raw to her but she finally took the plate from me, she then came back with the same plate of food to inform me that it was just the lights if i'd like to follow her to the kitchen to have another inspection of the chicken, i told her no it was raw that my friends had all checked this too she then asked me if I'd like that plate back or would I prefer a new one, my friend then proceeded to tell her that the chicken is clearly raw and to please put on a new dish for me.
at this stage my friends had all finished theirs and mine was just going back to the kitchen to put in a new order, i would not recommend this place at all.

Food is great but book a table for 1:30pm but table wasn’t ready until 1:50pm. What’s the point of booking then? Music is loud and tables have like 2 cms separation between them! Cramping customers and high noise levels seems to be trendy these days

Sorry folks, the food was very strange, kinda greasy, large portions but felt it was quantity over flavour.. Do you even taste the food yourselves? Huevos rancheros was just plain bizarre, bed of baby food like polenta and two fried eggs on top? Gross. Frittata was greasy. I had to apologise for choosing this place, although staff are nice.. Sorry never again..

I was there for the first time for my Graduation dinner, on the recommendation of a friend, and it did not disappoint. Food was delicious, the server (didn’t catch his name) was absolutely A1 and they were all really accommodating when we came in earlier than our booking. Will definitely be back!

It was quiet enough when we arrived. Food was delayed slightly but was very good when it arrived. I feel the price for the sides is high. Staff are very good as always.

Great food, super friendly and helpful staff, amazing value altogether!

We booked a table for 7pm on Sunday and as it turns out there's an early bird available all night Sunday thru Thursday so value for money is amazing. Food was delicious and served beautifully.

Service is outstanding too! I'd highly recommend San Lorenzo's and will definitely be going back.
