Darwins hosted us for a members party - all 30 of us. We got 5 star treatment from start to finish, being given our own room to enjoy the night. The staff are absolutely top notch. The reputation of their steak speaks for itself, and the rest of the menu is the same high standard. I am delighted we chose Darwins and we will most definitely be back! If you are looking for a great atmosphere, great food and great service in the centre of Dublin to start your night, then look no further.

Had a lovely meal here. Steak was cooked to perfection. The brownies were delicious too! A little on the expensive side compared to what we're used to back home, but we knew what to expect. I would highly recommend visiting here!

A friendly welcome and attentive service made dinner for our group of 8 a great experience. Even though it was full on a Saturday night, our order was taken and our food arrived promptly.

Food well up to scratch in the main exception being a cold pork belly starter. Service was utterly devoid of interest or warmth and delivered with a complete lack of engagement. No please,thank you or conversation of any description. We were never offered tea/coffee and a promised birthday treat never materialised. Our party of eight left your premises completely unacknowledged by your servers or front of house staff despite having paid a sizeable bill which included service charge. The coldness of your treatment was shocking and very disappointing as prior contacts at booking and confirmation stage were helpful and cordial.
