Food was amazing and staff were super friendly and professional
Went for a Sunday brunch, had a feeling food was better before, and kids menu is not impressive at all.
We come here most weeks for Brunch, it's for everyone, families, couples, groups.... the food is always good and we've always come away happy.
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!
Fabulous food in a great location close to the bord gais theatre😍
Completely overpriced food for what you get
Lovely place, lovely food, lovely staff, lovely service! I've been here twice in the past few weeks for lunch and haven't been disappointed, we'll definitely be back.
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.
Amazing food. Have been here twice now before the theatre and both times it's been fab. Will definitely be back.
Great for a pre-theatre meal
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.
Great pretheatre meal. Very handy for Bord Gais.
Beautiful meal & wonderful service but we had a table by entrance and it was coooold!
We were in for a pre theatre dinner and we were well looked after. Service was efficient and attentive and the food was delicious.
Poor selection of dishes at 8pm.
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
Have eaten here many times, great for a trip to the bord Gais. Food and service always good ! Will be back
2 people at our table ordered the Calamari this came and it was very rubbery and not crispy.
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.
Great experience yesterday. Delicious chicken burger and amazed how quickly it was all ready. Friendly staff too. All good, will deffo be back. Thank you!
Waiter Vilen was excellent. Very attentive and very competent. An excellent waiter. Food was quickly served which was good for a pre theatre meal. Was also very tasty.
