Excellent food and great service in a lovely setting.
Birthday dinner absolutely fabulous have been here on lots of occasions and would
highly recommend it.
Had a lovely lunch. Asked if we want to finish wine after all dishes were removed, should have topped up while food still on table.
Excellent food, professionally served in a lovely setting.
Highly recommended for special occasions.
Staff were pleasant and very accommodating
Menu was limited. Too many attempts at trying to offer ‘different dishes’. Sweetbreads or ox cheek doesn’t do it for me. Having said that , the scallops were superb and the
My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner, the food was exceptional, well cooked and presented. Some of the dishes are expensive, but you get what you pay for. The ambience of the Saddle Room is quiet and very comfortable.
We had a drink in the bar before hand which again was very comfortable but full and very noisy.
We were sorry to see that the dress code was not adhered to. It was a shame to see tee shirt, jeans and jumpers on some gentlemen. This is a venue worth getting dressed up for.
Overall, an excellent experience
We had a great experience, delicious food, attentive staff and an all around excellent night out with the family for our last night in Ireland.
My sons graduation. Wonderful service and food. Really lovely setting
Amazing food, attentitive service superb value for money

Lovely food, great attentive staff..extensive wine list

Lovely atmosphere in the dining room. Very welcoming staff that didn't intrude but were very attentive at the same time. Food was beautiful all plates were emptied.
Beautiful food and delicious cocktails. Very good service, everyone was very nice.
We treated friends to a birthday lunch and we all loved it. The food was delicious and there were plenty of vegetables. Our waiter was delightful a huge smile and happy disposition, he added to sense of relaxation and comfort. We felt the meal was leisurely no sense of hurry. We really enjoyed it and will come again and will recommend it to friends. Sincerely Marie Fitzgerald
The food was fab presented beautifully. We got the set lunch menu which had a reasonable amount of options. It was a bit pricey but considering the hotel and location it was worth it. Nice for a treat every once in a while.
Wanted somewhere special to celebrate out wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed.
From the moment we arrived the staff ensured that our evening was special, seating us in a romantic booth, wishing us a happy anniversary and continuing to be attentive all night.
The food ..... what can I say ...... why has this restaurant not been Michelin starred? The freshest oysters, beautifully cooked scallops and the most delicious Chateaubriand, seasoned and cooked to perfection then carved at the table and a wonderful selection of deserts. The wine list was extensive and there is definitely something to suit every palate.
We had a wonderful experience that night and I just want to thank everybody for making our anniversary celebration so perfect.
Good food with great service. We had a side booth which was lovely.
Excellent food and service as always. Great place.
Lovely atmosphere, attentive but unobtrusive staff. Great food. Drinks expensive but food good value.
My husband and I were in Dublin for the weekend. We had an evening meal on the Saturday night from the table d'hote menu. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The Meal was excellent. Whats not to like! Perfect!!
Too quality food and perfect for special pre theater meal
First time in Dublin. Lamb was delicious.
Elegant, upscale, delicious, well-trained staff, just perfect. Not inexpensive.
It was my first visit to the Saddle Room and it was an amazing experience. Really enjoyed every moment from start to finish and hope to return in the near future.
Delightful atmosphere, great food, not massive portions, just right size. Excellent service with a smile and beautiful room setting and interiors.
Good food, good service and a relaxed atmosphere - a thoroughly enjoyable experience all-round!
Lovely dinner in the saddle room as always. Really enjoyed a gin and tonic in the bar before and after! Food was delicious and service is always perfect.
Booked a table for two for my boyfriends birthday and we both absolutely loved it, the food was delicious and the staff were very tentative, in a way that wasn’t too much. As an added bonus, I notified the restaurant about the birthday and they brought out a trio of desserts with Happy Birthday beautifully written in chocolate too. I would definitely recommend as somewhere special, we will be back again soon.
An enjoyable Sunday lunch, food arrived quickly, service was attentive. Deserts quality was particularly good. Good location and will be back.
I had an amazing birthday dinner at the Saddle Room. It was my birthday and being pregnant my dessert choices are limited. But the staff surprised me with a very pregnancy-friendly dessert at the end of the meal, in the quiet manner that I like. The food was wonderful, the service marvelous, the atmosphere timeless and classic, and the staff professional to perfection. I cannot praise The Saddle Room enough. I am going to be having many more meals there on later visits to Dublin.
We booked for a pretheatre meal
We were very happy with the level of service we received the food was delicious
Will definitely visit again
Overall we had a wonderful time
Thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and excellent service...yes, the food was very very good. The only constructive criticisms I would make are....the menu was limited...3 items and a 'veggie' !.....then , with 2 courses at 30 euro, one would expect to have 'sides' included...but 'no'.....thought this a little mean and not in keeping with an 'included' lunch.
Whilst enjoyable, these matters need attention before we think of returning.
As a family, we are fans of the Shelbourne Hotel! A family meal in the Saddle Room to celebrate our sons birthday didn’t disappoint!
We are looking forward to another visit!
Loved the warm chocolate dessert! Lunch good value but wine and bottled water expensive. Staff very pleasant, delighted got the window seat requested in the booking and the "happy birthday " and decorated plate for my friend very nice touch. Will be back 😉
Very pleasant. We have been to this restaurant many times over the Years
The soup (sweet potato) was cold.
Other starters (smoked salmon) were very small indeed.
Main courses and desserts were satisfactory.
Staff made the usual fuss.Loved the food and the pre dinner drinks in the Bar.Staff could not have been nicer
I had lunch here a few months back and it was absolutely amazing, I am vegan and it's hard to get such delicious good quality food so I thought this would be the perfect venue to take my sister for her birthday as a special treat.
I was really disappointed with the dinner. I ordered the pickled vegetable salad for starters which I was really excited about as I had it for lunch before... however.. the dinner version was absolutely miniscule.
For my mains I ordered something along the lines of rosti onion with seasonal veg and an almond crumb... there were 4 tiny roast onions on the plate, some beetroot puree and about 5 tiny carrots in the middle of the plate... no sign of any almond crumb.. I was starving..
To add insult to injury the waitress then informed me that the only vegan desert options were fruit salad or sorbee... at this point I was absolutely starving so ended up ordering a non vegan desert as I dread to think what the fruit salad was going to be!
