Went here for pre matinee show lunch. Lovely atmosphere. Food was excellent as was the service. Would definitely go there again.
Burgers tasted a bit like processed meat and the cocktails were very overpriced for the size of them. Nice place to go for a glass of wine after work though
Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our pre theatre 3 course meal. Not only was it great value but the food was so tasty and delicious. The service could not have been better and with Bird Gais within eyeshot we only had to stroll over to catch the show. We will definitely be back.
Really good service and friendly staff. Poor gluten free options.
Service was very slow unfortunately, I got the impression you were a bit short handed on the night. The ladies bathroom was in a bad condition, very untidy :( Food & drink was very good and I would come back again assuming the service problems were not the norm
Really enjoyable food and service was absolutely perfect!!
We were seated and served quickly, and delighted with the food.
Food and drink was great but wine by the glass is expensive.
Lovely food. I am Coeliac and was well catered for. Great atmosphere, really friendly and helpful staff Thank you, can't wait for my next visit
Very friendly staff
Excellent food and service
We had dinner before a show. Service was excellent and food was lovely. We’ll definitely be back
Great service, Great food. We all enjoy our food ❤️
Worst restaurant I have ever eaten at. Service was slow and rude. Food was low cheap quality.
Lovely food and staff were extremely prompt, helpful and friendly
Have dined here on many occasions and have never been disappointed - food always fab and staff very friendly and efficient. Always a high recommendation from me.
Absolutely beautiful meal and fantastic service. Would be nice if there was a choice of menus rather than just one menu inside and one out. We struggled with limited vegetarian options as there was only one choice.
Excellent service and food. Given the humidity it would have been better to have the air con on for comfort.
Staff could be a little more attentive/check on tables a bit. Food was really excellent.
Meal in HQ after show at Bord Gais. Food & wine both really good! Only negative we noticed was downstairs bathroom could do with a facelift..and was in bad need of a clean too. Will def still return though!
Our Waitress was exceptional and pre emoted our every need. We were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Beautiful food, great service. Amazing pre-theatre venue. Only comment was the heat, restaurant was very warm, air conditioning didn't appear to be on. It would not prevent me from going again, all of my party had a great time.
Lovely pre theatre meal. Only complaint is the table and stools too high. Nowhere to put your bag.
Took a while to be seated despite having a reservation but once seated service and food were very great!
We were a family of 6 having the pre theatre menu. Everyone absolutely loved the food, outstanding. The only thing I would comment on was there was not enough avocado in the avocado salad which I had for starters. Otherwise it was one of the best meals we've had in a very long time. The service was excellent also and that includes the booking as well. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend you guys.
