Taste at Rustic Ratings and Reviews
I’d give it 6 stars if I could! We booked a great offer through taste.ie so had a limited menu but that really didn’t matter. The room is very cool, the staff (two guys when we were there) super attentive and fun...and the food is FANTASTIC! Had sushi starter with a steak main course and fantastic orange chocolate desert. Lovely cocktail in the bar afterwards. I didn’t see the a la carte menu which is probably pricey but this place is brilliant - thanks for a super night.
We had great time in the taste generally,service is great, I wasn’t shocked by price as been there before but my 3 friends need bit time to digest the price. Lol. But we were offered 4 complimentary drinks which are make far more better. :) . Food still amzing as usual .
Great food and service! Loved the decor and very confy seats and cozy place. The Bonzai Bar is very hip and great place to have drinks. I was there on New Years Eve and though everything was great I was expecting more for celebrating new years.. no countdown, no sparkling wine and no props!
I'd been to Taste at Rustic before and was excited to return. I ordered a glass of wine but the wine had corked and there was cork residue in my glass and my wine glass was chipped which was very unpleasant when I took a sip - I sent this back but was waiting a long time for a replacement that I had to follow up on where it was.
My friend and I order the Sirloin on charcoal - my steak was not cooked very well. Usually I like my steak medium rare but it was close to well done when it arrived. I don't like to complain in restaurants and had already sent my wine back so I ate the food.
I would understand if the restaurant was really busy that these things can happen in these instances but we were the 2nd table in the restaurant so there should be no errors when the restaurant is quiet.
very disappointing, competely overpriced.
Vegetarian main course was disgraceful, coconut milk and lime with a few veg thrown in, could make it at home in 10 mins and would cost less tha 5 euro.
Veg starter was also just a salad of pear and radish, absolutly no cooking skills required..menu was 65 a head before wine....shocking, we are complete suckers to put up with this stuff!!
Fish main course was raw in centre and inedible despite leaving it on the hot coals for ages.
Will not be back, shame.
Great evening with fabulous food in a very relaxed atmosphere. We sat at the counter and enjoyed watching the kitchen operate, delivering mouth watering plates of food. The service was excellent with detailed explanations offered for each plate with prompt yet timely service intervention. One of the most enjoyable meals I have had in Dublin, a must for Japanese cuisine or cocktail lovers!
Some of the food items are cleverly created bearing surprise and right balance of umami flavours. Unfortunately the set tasting menu which is usually a safe bet was a continuum of salty broths. Atmosphere was loud - too loud, hot - too hot and busy with people standing leaning on my chair and engaging loudly in conversations across our table.
Staff is friendly and knowledgeable - well oiled machine of a team. Unfortunately Not that clever and we won’t return.
We had a fabulous meal, very attentive staff and the place is lovely. However, my husband is celiac and notified the waiter of this in advance of ordering. Despite this and having questioned several of the dishes he was informed half way through one of the courses and when he re questioned the waiter, that what he’d just eaten container wheat! He therefore couldn’t finish the course and was Ill that night night and the following day. We were very surprised by this.
This breakdown in communication is not commensurate with the level of service one one associate with a restaurant in that price bracket.
I have had steak there before but the steak I got was not great...I have had better ...better at home and better in that restaurant...given I was on a 1st date I did not want to complain. Ambience is very different on a Wed night V a Saturday night..its not nearly as good on a wed. Service was great and nice help on the wine!
I am a huge fan of Taste at Rustic and I have been to the restaurant on many occasions. This was the first time that I had any issues with the experience. It took quite some time to be seated for our 9pm reservation and I do not think we started to eat until 10pm. The staff were incredibly attentive so their were no complaints, but as the organiser I was conscious of it. I was more disappointed by the food. Across the board, I found it over seasoned, I have ordered the same items on several occasions and I thought there was excessive use of salt on many of the sides and the steaks from the set menu.
Went for anniversary dinner. Had heard nothing about the restaurant & we had an absolutely great evening! I don't usually leave reviews but felt I had to as I was so impressed with the atmosphere, the service & the food. Amazing find, we'll be back for sure!
Great food and nice ambience- had a lovely meal and went downstairs for a cocktail at the bar. Was informed that we were unable to sit at bar as we had not reserved chairs (even though nobody was sitting down). This was after we spent a fair whack on three courses & wine upstairs..incredibly disappointing end to what was a lovely night
I heard great comments about Taste at Rustic and have been to Rustic Stone and Fade Street Social and love them both. It certainly did not disappoint.
The food was fantastic, staff were so friendly, very helpful and showed a huge interest in the food. I am gluten intolerant and the majority of the menu could be adapted. Everything that I had was beautiful but I have to give the Green Tea Brulee a special mention....it was clearly the nicest dessert I ever had.
There is a great atmosphere in the restaurant and also in the bar. The cocktails are to die for.
I have already recommended it to family and friends and we will definitely be back.
