    Really enjoyed the experience Awesome steak. On the debit side, One of our side dishes which was tomato and buffalo mozzarella only had a very small of buffalo mozzarella. Tiny. It is a noisy room. Very comfortable chairs. The staff where very helpful in organising a birthday surprise. Expensive, once a year kinda money- 18 euros for a house red wine glass.

    We went here on the advice of friends who had visited Dublin earlier in the year. We were not disappointed. It was our final night out in the city and a great way of to visit the bar in the basement for a drink after dinner.

    Best steak house in Dublin in my opinion. We only ever come here for special occasions as it was on the expensive side, but always worth it. Staff are always fantastic and really professional. One area for possible improvement would be the vegetarian options. I know it’s a steak house, but one member of our party was vegetarian and found the options quite limited. Can’t wait to return. Thank you

    Lovely reception, great food and service was ok until the meal finished then rude impolite direction to go down to the bar area, not shown down, drinks had to be carried down several flights of stairs and difficult to get a drink in the bar area despite the fact there were very few people there, the after meal treatment spoiled what was otherwise a nice evening, all 3 of us were pretty shocked and disappointed with this having spend €550 for the evening

    This is truly a 5 star restaurant. We were greeting by multiple people as we entered. The restaurant interior itself is nicely designed. The wait staff were good but not great. I didn’t feel like I was in a five star restaurant based on the waiters interactions with us. However I would return to dine here. The food and ambiance were perfect. Maybe just a more attentive waiter next time.

    Very disappointed in what should have been fine dining. Decor very dated. Service was good in fairness to the waiting staff. Haddock set in a bed of baby tomatoes. Far too many tomatoes. Side dished ordered, due to the fact that main courses did not have thus variety. Poorly presented french fries in the middle of the table, which were pretty greasy and poorly presented. Side serving of wild mushrooms, which was presented like a bucket of coleslaw. Other guest had beef, which was less than ordinary. The food got a one out of 10. I would happily pay Eur156 + tip for a top notch meal. However, last nights meal, in dated decor did not command anywhere near a premium price. Shanahan's really need to up their game.

    Was ok, so excited to be there in the first place. Website says don’t use cell phone at table. Shortly after we were seated a couple with a toddler were seated. The child screamed repeatedly while the parents were GLUED to their cells and no on said a word. it was awful. We asked our server and after he conferred with someone he told us the manager was off that evening. 400 euros later we had a so so meal and an awful experience.

    Always enjoy celebrating special occasions in SHANAHAN’S. you can be guaranteed excellent food and plenty of it! But get those nuts back in the bar!! The last couple of times we’ve been there we have been told they were “waiting on a delivery” or were “just out of them”. Only a small thing in an overall fantastic restaurant!

    21 years ago we stopped in to Shanahan’s on our first night in Dublin during our honeymoon. The food & service was terrific! Now, back in Dublin & had to relieve our experience again. NO disappointment here! Shanahan’s is still the best restaurant in Dublin. Even got to meet the same owner as we did 21 years ago, John Shanahan. Want to be treated royally, Shanahan’s is the place!!

    Shanahan's on the Green is an exceptional restaurant! The food, the ambiance, the service, the location - are all amazing. The only problem is the price. This was by far the most expensive meal we have ever had, in Ireland or abroad. Ever. A month's rent is how one of our party of five described the bill. Having said all that, this is a once in a lifetime experience... if you can afford it. I just wish we could return at some point in the future (we'll have to start saving now!)
