The waiter didn't check in regularly enough and wasn't observant when we were looking for the menu for dessert or looking for the bill
Hi the atmosphere and service was great the food not so much. I got poached eggs on avacado and toast the eggs came out cold, I sent them back but the 2nd batch looked underdone. My friend also got pancakes and they were cold. But as I said staff and atmosphere were great
We had a fabulous evening with you yesterday evening, thank you for your attentive service to one of the group with allergies. We did have a slight mishap with the starter arriving after the main course for one of the girls. Both were struck from the bill which was the right course of action and much appreciated. The kitchen would've been very busy at the time of ordering. We'll be back!
I am not sure if you were understaffed the day we were there. However service was particularly bad compared to my last visit there. Very hard to get attention of staff. Whether to order more drinks or ask for a napkin. Had to get up myself to get a napkin eventually. I left a token tip and actually wish I hadnt as not one person said goodbye or acknowledged us when we were leaving. Absolutely appalling. We will not be back again and have told family, friends and neighbours reasons why. Other diners sitting near us were making similar comments about the service.
lovely food and staff
Fab dinner, excellent service & great atmosphere, will definetaly go back.
Service was prompt and staff very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Would definitely return when in the area again.

Excellent food, great service
I love this restaurant when going to the Bord Gais Theatre. I love the food, service is friendly, atmosphere is great.
Great selection of drinks. Reasonable prices. Ideal for theatre
Really good buzz in the place and lovely food.
Disappointed with vegetarian choice only one pasta dish with cream and chef not able to make a tomato sauce! V easy to have something in freezer prepared
Food was great! We only received positive feedback of our clients! We were a big group op 50 people (flew in from Belgium) The service was quick (as we only had little more than 1 hour) BUT very friendly No remarks at all, it was excellent Thanks for that HQ! Regards, Kristel
Very prompt and attentive
Fab night of dining. Food was amazing from start to finish..staff were friendly and so attentive. Will be back!! Thanks so much
The service by table staff was absolutely fantastic! The starter was lovely for both myself and my partner. But the main, We both got the Burger from the Pre-Theatre menu which wasn't great, it was rather sloppy and the bun was soggy from the excessive dressing on both burgers. The wait staff made our experience though, couldn't compliment them enough.
both of us really enjoyed the meal and will certainly come back in the future
The background music was far too loud and made conversation difficult. Our group was there before going to an opera at the nearby theatre, as were most of the other diners. A more appropriate choice of background music to suit the tastes of the majority clientele would have been a nice touch.
