Poor from start to finish. No restaurant feel about this - we were put at a table (eventually) between parties having afternoon tea and drinks. Were asked three times how many people were we expecting. Food was very average. Incredibly noisy and rushed. Very over-priced. Unfortunately, we won't be returning...

Food was very good. Service would have been more attentive. We were rushed for a pre-theatre event but the wait staff didn't get the message.

One of the best overall dining experiences. Food was superb, service was impeccable. Every dish we had was well prepared, perfectly seasoned and beautifully presented. Many thaks to the wait staff for providing us a truly memorable evening. Our expectations were very high, our Reading Room experience far exceeded them. Very highest recommendation.

Food was nice, nothing amazing. Pumpkin was too firm in risotto. Venison was the most shockingly overpriced dish I've seen since Celtic Tiger left the building! Bottom line, for the prices being charged there are far more better restaurants to choose from in the city.

Whilst the setting is excellent, we found the food to be very good, but not exceptional - and service was extremely slow - to the extent that we had to ask that one main course be brought out before the others, for someone who had to get to a meeting; and for all this, you pay handsomely (over €300 for four adults, and two kids). For those who are not worried about either money or time - it's delightful - but I don't think I'll be rushing back.
