Very happy with our recent visit to 1520. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough. The variety and quality of the food was unbelievable. The place was very well laid out with the social distancing and plenty of sanitisers around the place. A great place will definitely go back.

The service was absolutely wonderful, from the minute we walked in the door. We were very kindly given a booth to ourselves down the back, the young man who arranged that for us was so friendly and helpful. Our main server was a tall young lady and she was just lovely. The man who arranged our table checked in with us several times to make sure we enjoyed our evening. The two cocktails we ordered were absolutely gorgeous. We were so well looked after and enjoyed our evening so much. I couldn't say enough good things about the staff and service.

The food was awesome! And they were respecting the covid restrictions. What a pity we could only stay for 1h45 though, but it's not their fault.

Hi 1520, As a huge fan of your bar and having been going there quite regularly over the last two years, I was beyond disappointed and surprised by the service myself and my friends received last Thursday night. We were initially brought a wrong drink order for one of our cocktails but a lovely waitress amended this by allowing us to have the wrong one free. However, after a different waitress served us and it went downhill from there. Two different waiters passed by us and brought drinks to surrounding tables without once glancing us, even ignoring our calls for attention. We waited patiently and tried to make eye contact and wave at these waiters, who for a good hour, went in and out to the tables beside and behind us, ignoring us and serving others around. We still had only one round of drink consumed and we were well over 2 hours there. I put on my mask and went over to the bar and asked the waitress could we be served whenever possible. She said she would be down soon. She never came. I eventually went down to the main bar and waited behind people paying and when I asked her politely to get our orders she just responded 'We haven't had a minute' when the bar was clearing out at this stage and everyone else was sitting content with their drinks. She came down eventually took our orders and when she returned with out order, she muttered that the barman got one of the drink orders wrong (it was 2 Gin and tonics for 14 euro - not hard to mistake) we waited another 5 mins for the second pair of gins to come. Super disappointed. Have never experienced anything like it in 1520 before so that's why I felt the need to share the feedback. We really hope to never experience a service like this there ever again. Hoping you guys can improve this service in 2021 and going forward.

Waitresses/Waiters very friendly and helpful but I’m afraid that was our only positive. Woman who greeted us at the door was very rude though from the second we arrived. Arrived in at 4:30 the time of our booking and she was very sarcastic and not very friendly. We weren’t seated until nearly quarter to 5 and then we were made leave just after 6 so we didn’t even get our 1hr 45 mins.

We (2 Adults & 2 Kids) love 1520 and we're delighted to be able to visit again. Our food was lovely and the staff are so nice and personable. I didn't get the opportunity to say but my flat white was possibly the best I have ever had... perfection! Its so rare that you get a coffee where the milk isn't boiled to death. Chicken wings were Devine, always are but were extra special this time. Cheerio and Happy Christmas, Gina Tuohy and family

The food was awful, so bland and for the price really disappointing. The cocktails were nice but expensive. You’d think with restaurants being allowed open now they’d make more of an effort with the food and service they provide. There was three of us and we were given a tiny table which meant we had to half hold our plates on our laps. The bartender kept changing the music mid song and adjusting the volume to where you would have to shout to talk to the person next to you. We won’t return.
