Great place to go after the Bord Gais or after a walk by the canal. Nice atmosphere and friendly service.
Always delicious food, value for money and excellent customer service experience. Never disappoints.
Lovely food, excellent service.
Thank You, overall the service and food was very good. I had a small problem with my starter, which was rectified when I pointed it out. The only let down was the toilets, they most definitely need an upgrade.
Lovely pre-theatre meal experience! The food was delicious, there was a great atmosphere and staff were very attentive! Will definitely be back next time I book a show!
Good food, friendly helpful staff and a short stroll to bord gais theatre makes it great pre show venue. Recommend making reservation.
We went to HQ Gastro Bar for a pre-show meal; our table was booked for 17:15. Our waiter was very sweet, and tried to reassure me that the kitchen were fully conscious of the time pressure that we were under and, essentially, that there was no need to catch his eye. However, he didn't know what I knew: that two of our party had mobility restrictions so I wanted 15 minutes for the 5 minute walk. We should have been offered coffee, and the bill produced at the same time as the coffee, without having to ask for each. We only just made it in time for the 19:30 show. 2 hours and 15 minutes for a 2-course meal is very long compared to other pre-show restaurants' service.
Thanks HQ - We had a great evening here with a big crowd and everyone was very helpful. Food was excellent too! Really appreciate it :)
Had a delicious lunch. Service was prompt and friendly. I’d definitely recommend.
Great meal very efficient service we really enjoyed it. The perfect place for a pre theatre meal.
When we had finished our main course, nobody came back to offer us the dessert menu. When we finally requested it we were told the kitchen was closed and were offered nothing. Very disappointing.
Food was pretty good and so were the cocktails. But there are definitely not enough waiting staff... impossible to get their attention unless you were in the middle of the restaurant.
Staff were all really nice, but the food was quite ordinary, and rather expensive for what it was. But the place is convenient and it was good to meet there.
Would have liked a jug of water to be left on the table... had to ask a few times for a refill ... just a little bit dear for 2 course pre dinner tho food was delicious ....
Great food. Friendly service. Ideal for pre-theatre. Nice and relaxed, didn’t feel rushed but got out in perfect time for the show.
We were given the pre theatre menu on arrival. We found it very expensive. We went ahead and ordered from it. We ordered starters and mains. During our main course the tables to the left and right of us were seated. Both tables were told that they didn’t have to have the 2/3 courses, they could order separately and it would be priced accordingly. We were not given this option and had to spend a minimum of €30 each whereas, the other tables could pay just €16 for the burger, the main course that I had ordered. This was very disappointing!
Poor service, little attention from the our server. Poor value for money
Excellent service , really made for a lovely evening , both gentlemen serving us we're faltless in their attention
Lovely resturant great place to go before a show
Great food, lovely atmosphere
The food is great. I come here every time I am going to the theatre, which is frequently. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. I will be back again soon.
