Amazing food & drinks, especially the deals on the Classics! Only annoyance - waiting about 20mins to order, way too long! Then again for second round of drinks.. Overall though, great.

This is a great venue for pre or post dinner cocktails. We were there on a lovely sunny afternoon for pre dinner cocktail and while the cocktails were great unfortunately the service was very slow and the staff who were on were ran off their feet.

It was my first visit at the cocktail bar and also at the restaurant. I loved the cocktails as well as the food and also the atmosphere. The service was also pretty good. Good place to be and to enjoy good cocktails and food . I would definitely visit again and would recommend the cocktail bar as well as the restaurant to other people.

We ate in the tapas bar - food is very tasty but very hard to find food that is not greasy as everything is done in oil or batter and very very few healthy options. Service is friendly and good but it can be slow as if you order a drink it has to come from the bar. The waiter service in the Cocktail bar is very slow.

I was not impressed at all with the menu we were offered in fade street. There were four of us. We went for two sharing plates and four sides. We got two small main courses to be shared between four. The side of seasonal veg turned out to be four pieces of tenderstem broccoli. I don’t eat dairy or eggs and when I asked for a suitable dessert. They gave me a bowl of grapes and what looked like a tin of fruit salad. It was 8 euro for 12 grapes 🤐🤐 don’t get me wrong. I enjoy fine dining and unusual food but was not in anyway impressed with fade st. I had previously need to rustic stone and love the menu there.

I am foodie .
I Always try new things and love going back to others.Fade street social is the one I like going back to .
Went for cocktails. The staff that night were particularly amazing .
It was a busy night and they were at the top of their game, with professional courteous and classy service .
I wish I had asked the name of the servers , but they were at the cocktail bar area .
As always enjoyed the time there .

We had a reservation upstairs in the lounge for NYE. Got sat, ordered two expensive bottles of champagne for the 4 of us and never saw the server again. We were going up to the bar asking for water and additional bottles of champagne. We didn't go to a bar for a reason - wanted a table so we'd actually have a drink at midnight... very disappointed in the service. Thank goodness they had a DJ.

Booking wasn't there when we arrived even though we used open table and they had called to confirm the day before.
Food was nice. Expensive for what you get.

We had a wonderful time catching up on Sunday. 4 friends who have not seen each other for a long time. We had the best service from the girl who served us our food and drinks. What a wonderful person to have on your team - smiley; efficient; pleasant; non-intrusive. Top class service. The food was also really delicious and the cocktails very different and unusual. Great atmosphere. Highly recommended. One thing about your upstairs bar - the service up there was terrible. The disinterest and boredom of the staff is palpable. A complete contrast to the staff downstairs. Our server was unfriendly and made faces at our choice of drink order. She also spent a lot of time checking out her hair in the mirrors on the wall. Not a good impression. Lowers the good perception of an otherwise fantastic day.
Give the girl in the Tapas restaurant a raise.

Starter and mains were very nice. However, deserts were somewhat of a letdown. Banoffi and chocolate melt were too simple and 'lazy' for want of a better phrase.
Atmosphere was vibrant and enjoyable. However, music was a tad too loud, 'along conversation difficult. This would affect a date night.

Tried to order a flatbread as I'd seen these advertised on the online menu. We were informed however that they can only be ordered outside as they are too big for the table and too messy!! Suffice to say we took our business elsewhere!

Including outside seating for the cocktail bar is very misleading. If I wanted to sit outside amongst the smokers I would have requested that in my booking.

The only complaint doesn't directly have to do with the bar itself, but the way the staff responded was absolutely outstanding. Another customer purposefully pushed my full drink on to my friend and left with out so much as a apology. Not only were the staff quick to clean the table, but another beverage was brought as a replacement quickly and accompanied by a sincere apology. They were very kind as well when I asked a cake to be held and presented for my friends birthday. The food at Fade Street Social is always amazing and this was no exception.

When my wife arrived to take her pre booked table in which she had to use a credit card to guarantee she was shown to a barrel with 1 chair not 3 in the smoking area. The staff member looked at the situation and my wife asked to be moved which wasnt possible so asked for extra seats. Fine she said and my wife never saw that staff member again. My wife and her 2 friends found their placement completely unsatisfactory however remained on due to having a dinner reservation in the tapas bar. We won't mention how the waitress in the tapas bar got the order wrong and tried to say that they had ordered the wrong amount. Anyway my wife and her friends will certainly not be having cocktails at €10.50 a drink while standing at a barrel with smokers surrounding them again.

I celebrated my birthday at the cocktail bar. There was some confusion with my reservation at first but the staff were great to solve things pretty quickly and made it up to us. The cocktails are fantastic, really worth the price and the food is simple but good. I will definitely come back.
