About Platform 61
Platform 61 is offering a bold, refreshing and healthy take on contemporary European cuisine.
Our story is inspired by the adventure that is Track 61, an abandoned underground platform under the famous Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. This platform allowed VIPs to enter the hotel in a more private manner via a specially built private golden lift. One of the most famous VIPs that frequently used the platform was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Legend has it that Roosevelt’s armor-plated car would drive off the train, onto the platform and straight into the especially made golden elevator, which would lead to the hotel’s garage.
In 1965 the platform was used by the famous pop artist Andy Warhol for his ‘underground party’.
The quest for the platform, known as Track 61 has become a holy grail for many urban explorers.

Didn't disappoint, top notch service, great value for money and lovely warm atmosphere. The waiter was friendly, attentive and provided excellent service. Food was very tasty, the beef was succulent and tender, good wine selection. Great experience would visit again. 10 out of 10
My sisters and I had a delicious meal here Friday evening before the theatre. Service was excellent
Lovely evening great food & service!
The food was absolutely lovely, but I was really disappointed with the service. While the staff were friendly enough, everything took far too long. We ordered a bottle of wine upon arrival, and it was about 15 minutes later before we got it. The food also took a long time, and whilenit was lovey we wouldn’t be returning based on the poor level of service.
Found the place incredibly loud and service was slow. Its a very small space with everyone crammed in, particularly uncomfortable as we were not having the bottomless mimosas was very loud environment for just brunch. Would only recommend if going for the mimosas/ and with the aim to drink lots of alcohol was like being in a loud pub/club on a Sunday morning. Service was slow and it took over 50 mins for food to arrive.
Great staff & food!
The food was ok. However, the service was way too eager as we only sat down at 8pm and had two courses finished by 9:05. Also, the server just poured our wine without even asking us to taste which I found quite irritating. Seating was not great either as we had requested a nice table for date night but were plonked next to the door with a table of loud ladies on a night out adjacent to us.
Eating out in Platform 61 is always a pleasure. We were made feel more than welcome. We enjoyed all off the food and can highly recommend the prawns starter and especially the pasta with chicken. The cosy atmosphere makes for an enjoyable experience. Good to see it was packed out.
We went for the early bird before going to the gaeity for a show. The menu is great and it's such good value only €20 for two courses! We got a glass of wine each too which was really nice wine, not cheap tasting. Our waiter was great the service was top class. We will be back!
Loved the quick service as the waiter knew we were in a rush and very delish food
Excellent service and food. Lovely atmosphere
Great spot for brunch with the girls!
Food always good. Very enjoyable venue good atmosphere. Value for money
Another really enjoyable evening at Platform 61. Food gorgeous, service excellent & good value for money. I have recommended it to many friends who have enjoyed it immensely.
When we sat down we were sternly reminded of the 1.5 hour rule. Which is completely understandable. At 1.30(1 hour in) we were going to ask the waiter for dessert. There was no waiter around and when one did appear he had our bill for us. At 1.35. Not requested and unprompted. I then and there asked instead for more mimosas and we were told no as there was a table of 11 coming in at 2pm so they needed us out. Was lucky that one of my friends felt comfortable to remind him of the rule he told us of 1.5 hours, as i was embarrsed and was going to leave as requested. He then did return with more drinks for us and we had our jackets on leaving just before 2pm. This was disappointing as we were really enjoying ourselves and then just felt pressure to leave and that we werent welcome anymore. Let alone we werent given then option of dessert which we wanted. I wouldn't be likely to go to platform 61 again nor would I recommend it to any friends for that matter. The food was lovely though, I will say that much
If you love great food in a unique setting Platform 61 is Not to be missed. Thank you to all the staff for a great night out. Robbie
An excellent meal and service as always in a very friendly atmosphere, always a very enjoyable meal
Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Service great. Will return as a great vibe all around South William Street
Beautiful food- really loved the flavours. Great service. A little too expensive.
Great evening, delicious food n wonderful choice of wines... We love eating out at P61👍
All good but the place is a bit too crowded and smelly (kitchen is right around the corner). The rest, fodd + service was on spot.
Very nice people and food!
Platform 61 is a firm favourite for fabulous food, service and atmosphere.
