We had such an amazing time at Locks. Ashley and the rest of the staff really made us feel welcome and helped us celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. The food was spectacular and the service was on the same level. We will definitely be recommending Locks to friends and we cant wait to eat here again next time we are in Dublin!

Food was good on Friday night but service was very erratic, lighting was way way too bright too. Wine glasses left on table all night despite being unused, no bread offered, empty salt seller on the table and the same empty salt seller returned to us after waiting ages for it to be filled/replenished. Wait staff kept changing with every course or drink so it didn’t appear anyone was covering the area we were in. Service and lighting definitely needs to be tweaked.

The food was delicious and the staff are extremely nice. My two issues of concern would be that the upstairs was room was cold and slightly weird in that it was just us and another couple. Also the streetlamp flashed on and off all night so we had to close the curtain.

I hope you got the email I already sent- we had a fabulous experience there yesterday for our daughters confirmation, staff couldn't have been nicer to us or our 3 children, food was fab- we didn't leave a morsel on the plates, we'll definitely be back on our own for dinner soon!

Two of us had a brilliant late lunch at Locks and was it was amazing from start to finish! The staff were kind and knowledgeable in their service and recommendations. Wine pairings were both interesting and perfect for complimenting each course. Starters, mains, and desserts were beautifully presented but the kicker, the taste well surpassed our expectations! The parsley soup with smoked eel was elegant and delightful. My ribeye was cooked perfectly and had amazing flavor. While my companion could not stop raving about her charred mackerel starter or the ricotta dumplings with wild garlic- an interesting take on a vegetarian main. We asked our waitress to choose our desserts and she did not disappoint! A perfect custard tart with bright pink poached rhubarb and homemade sorbet and an oh so filthy sweet tiramisu... We rolled out of the door and could not have been more happy for it! We will be back and we’re bringing friends!

Stunning lunch in the most beautiful setting. One of the best meals I've had in years. You've got to try the snacks, that butter with the sweet smokey taste of trout, oh wow. In fact I found myself oogling at just about everyone's plate. Masters at work in the kitchen.

We had a birthday party for 18 people for my mum's birthday upstairs in the Bewick Room. It was an excellent night, with beautiful food, friendly and professional staff and a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and would go back.
