Went for a Sunday brunch, had a feeling food was better before, and kids menu is not impressive at all.

Nice place and concept in a great location for the bord gais theatre. Just a bit too expensive for what you get. Staff are nice but not that attentive.

I would be nice if there were a few gluten free choices on the menu. That said the omelette was excellent

My friend and I went for lunch on 5/2/19. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. On discovering we were there for a birthday they then brought out a complimentary dessert and even sang happy birthday. The gesture was very kind and very much appreciated. Excellent service and delicious food. Thank you!

Enjoyed a pre theatre meal at HQ recently. Limited early bird menu but good sized portions, done well. Slight negative with the dessert - apple crumble, not much apple in it. Otherwise everything was good, very attentive staff, relaxed surroundings, very convenient for the Bord Gáis theatre.

The food was very nice and we couldn’t fault the service. It was very over priced but they have a captive audience because of the location.

Booked my table for 6.30pm but arrived at 5.30pm after seeing les miserable. We were prepared to sit at the bar for an hour until our table was ready but to our delight the maitre’d ushered us straight to our table and we could stay as long as we liked. Brilliant service

Lovely restaurant ,good buzz,terrific service, we were going to see Les Miserable in an Bord Gais, so the service was speedy without being rushed. The food was lovely but I felt the pre theatre menu was a bit limited in choice and a little bit pricey for 2 courses, most other restaurants would be €5 to €6 cheaper for 2 courses.
