Hello Locks. We we're a party of 10 last Saturday (9th) celebrating Jamie's graduation. The booking was very professionally taken by Cristina. We occupied the upper front room overlooking the canal. It was bright and cheerful. We were lucky to be served and looked after by Michele whose gay and bright personality allied to her very confident and competent waiting was a joy. The sea trout and pickled tongue we're excellent. T|he lamb rump with its various flavours was a taste sensation - I think you get the drift - a great occasion. Thank You

Lovely food, lovely staff. Locks should highlight the easy parking as a plus. In Winter, maybe a little extra heat near the windows.

Absolutely loved our recent Sunday lunch at Locks. Honestly we have been meaning to eat here for ages but through (probably) laziness we haven't. Goodness , have we been missing out. A beautiful room, thought out menu, delicious food, great wine list and the service was friendly but professional and efficient at all times. We will be back!

We love Locks and have gone there for three of our anniversary dinners. Sunday was our 10th anniversary. When booking, we noted the occasion and specifically requested a nicely located table, if possible. Instead, we were led to probably the worst table in the house, right next to the bus/serving station where there is lots of activity. So we asked to be moved to a table along the wall, which they happily obliged, but it's clear there was no notation made re: our request. The food was all lovely, but a little off from what we're used to at Locks. For instance, the chicken was perfectly cooked and delicious but arrived cold. Overall, we'd say the visit was satisfactory, but we're used to so much more from Locks. I don't think it will be our place to go for celebratory meals anymore, but it's decent value for a nice Sunday lunch.

Lovely neighborhood gem. The starters and mains we ordered were fantastic and the dessert was definitely something different. The atmosphere is relaxed without being loud the decoration is chic but not stuffy and the cuisine is of high standard but honestly priced (a rarity in Dublin). My favourite already.

The lighting is almost painfully bright, but the only fault in an otherwise wonderful evening.

We had an utterly delightful experience, start to finish. The service was attentive, kind, and charming. And the food was absolutely delicious. To top things off, we discovered after we left that my companion had left her phone at the table; we had walked only a few tens of metres away and had turned back as my phone rang; the very thoughtful and resourceful staff had retrieved my mobile number from the reservation and were ringing me. The phone was at the desk awaiting me seconds later. That is indeed fine service. We look forward to returning. Warm regards to all at Locks. Thank you.
