San Lorenzo's Ratings and Reviews
The food was great and I loved the interior! The restaurant did get quite noisy at times but I feel this was due to the fact that the time we booked was quite popular, as is the restaurant. Our waitress was extremely polite and helpful. I would certainly dine here again. I hear the brunch is amazing!
We had a quick lunch here. Booked in for 12pm. The place was packed and there were people waiting for tables, but we were seated immediately even though we were about 10mins late trying to find parking. It took a little while for our order to be taken and for someone to come with the card machine, but it was understandable since it was so busy. The food was very tasty, I had the pork belly hash and my boyfriend had the breakfast.
We visited San Lorenzos for a friends birthday and it was a lovely experience. We had a table booked but had to wait a little bit but the staff were very apologetic so we didn’t mind. The food and cocktails were excellent and in general there was a great vibe. I am already looking forward to my next visit.
I heard it was one of the best brunches in Dublin, this is not the case in my opinion. The service was really bad, the restaurant was not full, in fact there was only 4-5 other tables, but we were completely rushed, the food arrived very fast and after about 40 mins of being in the restaurant we were handed the bill and told there was 'no rush'. Will not be going back
Altogether good meal was slightly ruined by a waiter who rolled his eyes whenever we asked him for anything....we weren't at all demanding, asked for some ketchup for the breakfasts, there were three of us and he begrudgingly brought over a tiny pot so asked a bit more and he almost slammed it down on the table...very uncalled for, we hadn't asked for anything else all meal!
I've been in Dublin for an exchange semester in 2016 and came back last weekend for a reunion with some of my friends from the exchange. I can now say that the thing I regret the most about my exchange is that I didn't know about San Lorenzo existence when I was there otherwise I would have spent every Sunday at their brunch of champions. 10 out of 10 , best food experience in Dublin.
After receiving an emailing warning not to be late or our table could be given away (if more than 10 minutes late) we arrived at 1.50pm for a 2pm booking. We qued at the bar until a table was available at 2.15pm. Would not have been an issue for me only for the way the email was worded with regard to arriving on time. It works both ways.
Service and food were great, couldnt fault it.
San Lorenzo's was absolutely delicious! I had the crab cakes and my fiancé had the 'breakfast of champions'. Both were absolutely incredible. The presentation wasn't anything too fancy, but who cares when food tastes that good! The service was a little odd, and it took a long time to get our check after telling our waitress we were done twice but if you like to hang out I suppose that's not a bad thing. We got there right when it opened so it was extremely quiet but it sounds like it gets louder as the day goes on
Our party of 3 were seated promptly. Reservations will payoff here as it filled quickly. We had the second seating for sunday brunch and were not disappointed. Our party had the french stack, which was excellent, also a fritatta with brie, also excellent, but the best of the 3 were the 2 poached eggs on bagel.
Food was lovely, if on the pricey side. Starters were amazing, and the missus's main looked good.
The fillet steak I ordered was overcooked (one side, probably forgotten as the place was quite busy) and the truffle bitterness overpowered the steak itself. Not a fan myself, but may work well for others.
this was my first time to eat here.The two of us ordered the same lunch special_jerk chicken.My companion sent her dish back immediately as the salad leaves on hers were not fresh.This was quickly replaced.I found my dish disappointing both taste wise and in its presentation.The chicken pieces were quite small and the dressing sparse.We ordered ice cream which was fine but again it was not well presented.We were charged for an extra coffee we didn't have but decided not to mention it as we had to leave .I had been looking forward to my visit but I am reluctant to return.
I've been here many times and always enjoy the food and buzz. However on this recent occasion I was very disappointed with the service. Although the table was booked a long time in advance we were left too long waiting. Previous guests should be asked to vacate their table. I also found the service to be cold; they would not take a small cake to bring out for a special occasion. I know this was very strange to the older people I was with - in their words 'seevice are not what it used to be'. Loved the food as always anyway.
We had a lovely time at San Lorenzo's. We went for the midweek brunch as we were off on a Thursday and much more enjoyable than at the weekend to be honest! Was nice to just sit and relax and not stress about getting out for the next table. The food is good (not absolutely amazing) but the service is awesome and we had a great time.
The food and drinks were really delicious and portion size was perfect. The service when we were at the table was very good and the staff were pleasant and attentive.
When we arrived, there seemed to be a bit of confusion with the booking although I wasn't asked to clarify anything so who knows. The manager looked at the list, played around with the system for a couple of minutes and then walked off. It wasn't really clear if we were supposed to follow him, but then he went over to a table to talk them through the menu and take their orders. We were basically left to stand there, without any idea of if our booking was ok, or if we were going to be seated. This went on for about 5-7 minutes before we were shown to a table. This normally would be fine, but the walk way beside the bar is quite narrow and it felt like we were very much in the way. This was the only downside to an otherwise excellent meal.
We were looking forward to eating here for so long......and left the restaurant really disappointed. While the ambience was lively the food is completely over rated. Both meals lacked flavour and were below average. Felt it was over priced for what we got......no problem paying for meals that are actually worth the money. Will be advising friends to avail of brunch from their local caf!!
