Quiet lunch spoiled by a rowdy table shouting so we could not hear what each of us were saying ! After requesting a move we were better positioned but still irritated by the shouting. Waiting staff were lovely ! Food very good ! Female floor manager cold and unfriendly.

We were booked in for 8pm on Saturday night. We were not seated until 8.45pm, after being told to sit at the bar, we eventually were served drinks at 8.20pm. Due to the delay we were given free bar bites pre our order (well received). There was a huge push to purchase still or sparking water and an even bigger push to purchase more wine which is absolutely outrageous. The food was good, would I order the cured seabream again, NO, it was more pretty than tasty. Would I order the beef for two, with all the trimmings ABSOLUTELY, delicious. On another note although it was a hot evening, I would not open the doors onto the canal as it makes out that you have a problem with your drains, when in actual fact it is the smell of the canal!

Very poor service and food overpriced and lacking flavour. No comparison to other Dublin restaurants opened in recent years.

Locks is a wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent; the service is spot on and the venue on the Canal is magic. I recently arranged a lunch for family and friends with ages varying from 8 to 80. Everyone was catered for and everyone had a terrific day. I heartily recommend Locks. TK

Dining with three friends, we were all blown away by the stunning food in Locks. The starters were devine and my mains (John Dory with crabmeat) was gorgeous, best dinner I've had in years. The ambiance is great. The room (downstairs) is laid out so you have lots of space - not packed in like sardines as is the trend in lots of restaurants these days. I cannot recommend highly enough, you won't be disappointed.

The market menu with 2 or 3 course is great value. It’s fine dining without the price tag

I thought the food was good value (we went for the early bird) but the wines were all quite expensive so out the price up. I didn't enjoy the cauliflower soup. I enjoyed my main course, the braised lamb. My sister got the fish (I think it was hake) and said it was just OK. The staff were lovely and friendly.
