While staff were friendly and initially attentive we seem to be forgotten about after serving the main course. the service needs to be much more attentive at this level. Food average to good, missing a little finesse to match the setting / menu. Nice room, setting and would give FXB’s another go.

Service was excellent and appropriately attentive. We went for the chateaubriand which was fantastic. If we were to do that again we would ask for a change to the 4 side sauces provided - removing the garlic butter and bernaise & replacing with more of the other 2 provided. And if that is our only complaint.... we'll done to all there

I am coming back this Thursday for the same steak I ordered and beef dripping chips. 10/10. You pay for what you get. Best steak I have had this side of Dublin.

Had a great meal on Saturday night. Following a chat with the waiter had my steak cooked to their recommendation rather than my original preference. They checked in as I was eating and as I found it overdone it was whisked away with an apology, rectified quickly and replaced with a perfectly cooked replacement, fresh side and an apology. Perfectly handled! Delicious steak- really perfect- and great staff. And when we were happily departing they had very kindly removed a round of drinks from our bill- not at all expected. A perfect example of how to turn a slight negative into a big positive- will definitely return!

We had a lovely server, and really enjoyed our mains. The cheesecake was very dry but apart from that no complaints.

In a line I don’t think we’d go back. I booked the table using the online system about 2 weeks before the day and requested a booth for the 2 of us. Arrived and we were given a table (not a booth – nor was our request addressed) beside 2 messy tables and so I asked if we could go somewhere else as the whole area looked like end of service. They seated us in a booth beside the gents which was no big deal but not ideal given we had booked 10 days in advance. The bigger problem was the staff scraping the plates off in an area adjacent making no effort to minimise the noise. On the service side, although each waiter was polite and friendly no one person seemed to take responsibility for the table. Every now and then a random waiter would ask us if we had ordered “X” and we would say yes we have. We had to ask for water twice and I asked for an extra slice of bread for the pate and it took about 10 minutes to arrive. On the food side we ordered the pate which was lovely. The mozzarella starter was very poor indeed. It was as if all the ingredients where on the plate but no effort was made to turn this into presentable food, for example the tomatos were just halved as opposed to being sliced which is typical for a capresse salad. We don’t know how it tasted as we just could face it. For the mains we ordered two fillets which were really nice. Lovely quality meat, well cooked and the sauce was nice. Laura had mash which was nice I had chips. The chips (chipper taste) over powered the taste of the steak I don’t think those kind of chips are suitable for the job and they were not described as chipper chips on the menu.

My wife and I have been regular visitors to FXBs over the years as it was always reliable for good food. We booked for an Early Bird on Saturday night. We had not been there since it had changed from pub to full restaurant. Our experience on Sat night was very poor. Our order was taken by 6.30 and while I had a starter my wife was served her main course at 7.35. Both our meals were very disappointing. My wife had a burger which was dry and ungarnished bar a piece of hard bacon. I ordered a sirloin steak which I had to send back. It looked and tasted like a piece of meat which had been cooked earlier and reheated. The waiter agreed that it was sub-standard. He took it back and served me another steak to his credit. At this stage though my wife had finished her meal and sat and watched me eat. My second steak while cooked properly was quite tasteless and not what I had ever experienced in FXBs before. My memory of the area we sat in was a bright room with colourful and interesting art work on the walls. It now has become dark and cave-like with brown walls and a similar coloured ceiling. Overall it was not a great dining experience on Saturday night and I would be slow to return.

Excellent service, really friendly and efficient staff. Really tasty food, and little bit pricier than we're used to but well worth it. Spent a lovely relaxing 3 hours there catching up over lunch!

Lovely venue and a great buzz about the place on a Saturday evening. Unfortunately a table of six guests nearby were very merry and extremely loud. We asked to be moved before we ordered our food, as we couldn't hear each other talk sitting closely, but there were no available tables. Thankfully the party left after 30 minutes. We ordered a lovely bottle of malbec and the shared steak special which was nice but not so great that we would order it again. Mash was cold - as in not heated at all, and although it was replaced we were almost finished eating. Cheese and biscuits good but would have been a greater experience if we had been told what we were eating. We enjoyed the evening and would return.

Waiter was very rude. He pulled faces at us several times. The waiter also refused to split the bill. It wasn’t very busy so I couldn’t understand why. The presentation of the food was not great. I understand having had the burger there’s not much you can do to dress it up but there was no garnish on the plate, the bowl of chips was only half filled and they were pale and undercooked. Overall even though FX Buckley’s came highly recommended from a number of peopl of our table of four, all of us agreed for the above reasons that we would not return.
