Taste at Rustic Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
Absolutely delicious. Our group shared a selection of appetisers and everything we ordered was divine. The staff were super friendly and attentive. The wine and cocktails were great and we stayed in the cocktail bar for a while afterwards. We will definitely be back.
First visit and it lived up to all our expectations
We had the tasting menu - excellent tastes , well presented , dish could have been explained a bit better.
Got a bit noisy when 6 people joined the table next to ours and opened the window without consultation - felt staff should have spotted this and at least asked if others in the vicinity wanted the cold air from the window !
We had a great time and will return soon
Food was disappointing . We had high expectations after reading the website... re the 5 senses, etc.... but our taste buds were barely tantalised. Food was actually a bit bland. Service was 1st class. We definitely prefer Rustic Stone any day as we find that food is tastier and menu more diversified... but Rustic Stone is very noisy. .. while Taste of Rustic is nice and quiet but not boring...
Me and my friend won a voucher for taste at rustic. I have to say the experience was incredible. From the minute we entered the staff were warm and accommodating. We were seated immediately and our wonderful waitress patiently went through the menu with us. She helped us make the most out of the menu and helped me pick the dishes that would compliment each other well. Would definitely recommend everyone I know to try this place.
This was my third time in Taste. Before I mention food I must say the staff are always genuinely warm and extremely helpful. I have eaten in all of Dylan McGrath's restaurants but this is my favourite by far. I don't exaggerate by saying I think Taste has the best desserts in Ireland. The food overall lives up to the name on every way. It is superb, I will also day that the Wagyu steak was worth the price tag, I don't think I had to chew it.
Our dinner was at 9pm on a Saturday evening. We thought the ambiance was nice and the host was friendly and attentive, but food ordinary. I don't think I'd recommend the place for foodies. We love trying different things so we usually order the Omakase when available at a restaurant. It started with a nice miso soup, followed by a small king crab dish, lobster/sea bream sashimi, and a hot pot with monk fish. The crab, the lobster, the sashimi, and the monk fish all seemed fresh but nothing we'd remember to come back for. The highlight of the restaurant in my view was their sake list. They had a couple of my favorites, Nanbu Bijin and Dassai.
The Rustic restaurants are two or three restaurants in the same building. The Taste is located on the third floor. The service was excellent, I might go as far as to say outstanding. My host was a young man from Romania who was exceptionally attentive. My first course was a mirin based soup with sea bream. This dish was flawless. It could be served in a Michelin starred restaurant. My main course was less successful. I had the chicken cooked over white charcoal and while tasty and well seasoned, it arrived ever so slightly undercooked. If at home, I might have taken the chance and eaten it as served, but since I had a 8 hour plane trip starting in 14 hours, I could not take the chance. The chicken is served on a skewer in a small barbeque pot that still has the hot white charcoal, so correcting the problem was just a matter of leaving the skewered chicken over the heat for a few more minutes. Overall a positive experience and next time I will try one of the other restaurants that are part of the Rustic .
