The staff, as always, are very accommodating (we changed the booking numbers the morning of our lunch). Service was friendly and fast and the food was excellent.

We were extremely disappointed with the food and the service from this restaurant and won’t be returning as a result. Lunch was very expensive for a dried out chicken pie and a Caesar salad which boasted a bacon crumb without the taste of bacon on some seriously burnt lettuce. I’ve had pleasant meals in the past but was very embarrassed to have had a table of 8 there before Horse Show and none of the party enjoyed the experience

This was my first visit to The Old Spot and I think it is safe to say I will definitely return. This is the one of the best dining experiences I have experienced in some time. The food was out of this world, roast beef so tender it was like slicing through warm butter. My only slight issue was the wine selection which was quite heavily weighted toward the expensive end, a couple more wines in the €20 - €30 bracket would be nice, that said the options of carafes is a welcome touch.

Everything about our experience at the Old Spot was amazing. The service was outstanding, great recommendations. The drink menu was sublime. The food was delicious, and the dessert was a superb. I was very happy with this choice as the last dinner of our holiday in Ireland!

We have been many times for Sunday roast and usually exceptional. The last time, a couple of months ago, it was ok..not great. I just thought it was an off day, everyone has them. This time it was poor again on many levels. - food: medicore - burnt yorkshire puds. burnt carrots, over cooked cauliflower and the meat was not great at all. Well done was curling on the sides it was clearly put under the broiler for too long, it was awful. The meat looks like a big portion on the plate all folded up but the meat is so thinly sliced it is quantity not quality. It would be better to have two nice slices versus the four see through slices that are tough. Meat was not great - very tough. ( Hungry Monk gets a great roast sirloin - I would find out who supplies them) Gravy - You used to get a nice jug of gravy verus the small ones and having to ask for more. Soup - was excellent Bread - a basket of bread or side plate of bread would be nice. Dessert - only one and it was a brownie on a plate with a scoop of icecream.. no effort at presentation at all. Was grand but .... Drinks - fine - no tomatoe juice on a sunday lunch, odd? Horseradish - ran out? Very few people in restaurant at 130? Service - poor.. overly enthusiastic hostess then when our plates needed to be cleared we had to ask for that to happen and for a dessert menu. It was an old reliable but something had changed? Management maybe, suppliers? I dont know but its not the same.. sorry and not inclined to try again with guests as it is not what we hope it to be.

Love this place. Ate there Sunday for Lunch and had guests from the States, who were extremely excited due to my building it up! Did not disappoint, food was wonderful and service properly friendly as per usual. This is my favorite restaurant in Dublin, as it consistent good and the staff are genuinely nice. Keep up the good work!
