Very nice except my order came out wrong and my party had almost finished their food before my correct order arrived - waiter was nice about not though and charged me for a 10oz sirloin rather than a 12oz.

The waiter we had was fantastic, we didn't get his name but he's tall with glasses and a black beard. He came and showed us all the different cuts of meat so we knew which to order. We had a lovely time and the service was fab!

Had early bird. Only 2 negatives, my steak and mash were slightly cold (and restaurant wasn't busy bar like 2 other tables) but the flavour of the steaks etc were very nice, the char was great on it. However that chocolate brownie and butterscotch sauce redeemed the meal definitely... one of the best deserts I've ever had, my friend didn't speak for the guts of 20 minutes as he was enjoying himself too much. Service was pretty good overall, food came quickly and the waiters were pleasant. Originally I'd have said 3.5/5 but that butterscotch sauce is worth half a point alone.

Truly a great dining experience! The service was superb and our waiter (can’t remember the name but he was from Slovakia) was one of he best waiters we’ve ever had! The meat was excellent and the overall meals were great. If anyone of us ever visits Dublin again we’d definitley eat here again. Thank you so much!

The only minor fault we could find was the fact that our chips were cold. Sending them back would be more hassle than it was worth when the other people all had their food & we wanted to all eat together. This paled into insignificance as we ate our streaks, which I would rate as one of the best I've had. I love a steak & believe with a bit of seasoning, it should be savoured on its own. Our waiter insisted that it came with a sauce even though I asked for it without any accompaniment. Again, this wasn't a problem as I used it for dipping my chips & it was actually very nice. In the whole, when the service is good & atmosphere buzzing, added to one of the greatest steaks I've eaten - this is definitely a place I would recommend. In actual fact, it's a place we came to last December & when we booked to visit Dublin this year to celebrate my mums birthday, one of the first things we did was book this restaurant with the promise of an amazing meal. Fortunately, it lived up to what we had built it up to be.

Excellent food as always, service was attentive without being pushy despite us being a late booking (10pm). Wine choice was varied and couldn't have been happier with our choices. We'll be back when we are next in Dublin - it's becoming something of a tradition!

I love F.X.Buckley, so I knew that any sister location would be worthwhile. Unfortunately, Sunday roast was sold out by 3 and our reservation was for 5, but now I know for next time. A wonderful meal is what I expect, and that is what I got.

Service was slow for a Wed night. I think the waiter forgot about us for a while. Steaks are lovely but I am don't believe they justify the premium price. Having said the above I would return.

The roasted vegetables were burnt rather than roasted. The battered fish was swimming in oil and the meal was poor. The restaurant was noisy and the background music was unnecessary and made it even more difficult to have a conversation

We were really disappointed that there were no roast dinners left when we arrived at 3 after fantasising about it all weekend. It would have been nice to see some notice on the website about roasts being for at come first served and we could have reserved a table for earlier.

Service was absolutely excellent we ordered off the pre theatre menu and ordered the flat iron steak but in hindsight we should have ordered the sirloin or fillet it was a little too chewy but still very tasty.
