Great atmosphere, great food, fast service and staff were very quick and knowledgeable
Fabulous restaurant, staff all helpful and courteous, food was great had a lovely evening.
We were a large group visiting on a very busy night, ahead of going to the Theatre. As always with a large group, people were coming in dribs and drabs. The staff were extremely patient, and when we finally managed to gather everyone, were extremely efficient. The food was excellent, and overall I would completely recommend HQ!
We had a lovely waitress serving our table last night. Excellent location for attending the border gáis
Lovely food and venue, strongly recommend
I have a bad back and asked for a normal table rather than a high table but I was told no, though there were plenty free. The wine is way overpriced, €34 for a basic wine is just ridiculous
Great food, comfortable setting
Amazing food. Soup and feather blade of beef just amazing.
Very pleasant visit with clients at HQ.
This is one of the best place to eat in Dublin. Amazing food, drinks, atmosphere and service! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for everything. Thank you.
Was disappointed that there was no early bird menu!! Booked for 6pm and was expecting early bird menu !!
Duck salad starter was tasty but very little duck. All mains were good. A bread basket would have been a nice addition. 12.5% service charge was a bit saucy. That said we would have been happy to leave a good voluntary service gratuity. One of our party broke a wine glass which was cleaned away very discreetly and the complimentary glass was very much appreciated.
great place, friendly service, by client sight they know what it needs, brunch was delicious and funny ))
Sorry hq...I had the chicken wings which were really dry and over cooked followed by the beef which was tough..it should have been cooked longer...and it was full of fatty pieces..so disappointed as your food is usually lovely....didn't say anything as it was a business evening....I really would have to think about going back to you...sorry to say this but jam a trained ballymaloe chef and was very disappointed Maria
Food was delicious and the service was fantastic, thank you for a great time
Food was fantastic.
HQ is a fantastic place for any occasion... lunch.. dinner.. drinks. Food is superb.. and staff are super on their game. We love every visit. Kind regards,Fiona
We all felt that the portions were a little small, although the quality of the food was excellent.
Had a lovely evening, food and service was great. Would highly recommend !
I felt the menu was quite limited in choice (especially desserts). There was no flexibility to choose other desserts off a la carte. We had fish and beef and while those were nice and a decent portion, there was very little accompanying them. I felt it was very overpriced for a pre-theatre. At 26 for 2 and 32 for 3, one could surmise that starters and mains were 6 each with 20 for the mains. It didn’t really feel like it justified that price.
Give the option to pay separately even if more that 6 people.
Service was shockingly bad on Sunday and food was cold.
Lovely dining experience. Very friendly/helpful staff. Only 1 issue- on leaving i actually saw a woman vaping at a table
