We popped in on Thursday 31Jan after seeing Trip Advisor comments. The steak and Monkfish were both outstanding. Staff attentive and professional. It was great to see the Chef and team “on stage” The following night we went to another restaurant which again in Trip Advisor had fantastic reviews..... we were so disappointed with it we booked a return visit to the Riddler and again suberb! I shall be adding a review to Trip Advuser this restaurant was the best eatery I’ve eaten in in a long time.

Was visiting Dublin for a weekend and booked a dinner on Saturday night for my frieind’s 30th Birthday. Had a great time! We all had steaks which were so delicious. Service was nice and run very smooth, felt very relaxed and welcomed even though it was our first day in the city. Would definitely recommend this place and will be coming back myself again! Thank you

Food is delicious - I had the pre-theatre menu - seafood chowder for starters and chicken for mains with a side portion of chips - chowder was full of flavour, so tasty on a cold winter evening - chicken dish was yummy - presented lovely too. Chips homemade with skins on - gorgeous. Fabulous meal.

We requested a table not by the door and that's exactly what we were given despite there having been plenty of other available tables. The chowder was measley, lacking flavour and a bit cold. The staff were very slow to clear away our dishes after we finished the starters, at least 10 mins. No soap in the bathrooms. The table beside us received their meals before us despite having arrived after us! Poor service.

The food was lovely as always but during busy periods - like before a show in nearby venues - it would be good to have one more person on the floor.

Was not made aware of offer of wine with main course as we were attending show in Vicar Street.That would have been nice instead of paying for the wine I ordered. Also on giving menus it would have been helpful to be informed of what the soup of the day was and when my partner was ordering his meal he was told that both the starter and main course he wanted were unavailable. This should have been explained before we ordered, instead of the waitress telling us cod was the same as hake?Food was very nice, I cannot fault what was served, just the manner of service could be improved.

Lovely spot, delicious food, cool atmosphere & great value on the early bird! I was delayed with traffic for my reservation and staff were really understanding and accommodating. Ideal place for an enjoyable meal before vicar street show and the free wine was a great bonus! Would recommend the rump of beef and the take.

Wir waren 6 Personen und gaben kurzfristig einen Tisch reserviert. Vom Temple Bar district Fußläufig gut erreichbar. Sehr freundlicher Service und mein absolutes favorit, die offene Küche! Preis/Leistung Top für Essen und Getränke. Wir hatten einen super Abend!

We found The Riddler via a tourism leaflet on a short trip to Dublin and thought it looked interesting enough to give it a go. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Creative and varied menu. Delicious food. Excellent service. All in a relaxing contemporary setting. Totally recomment.

Noisy restaurant where the sound of the coffee machine would drown out your conversation. No background music. Atmosphere was of confusion. Food brought to wrong tables (we were offered our neighbours starter), drinks lined on the counter but staff confused about which table they were to go to, resulting in long waits to get the staffs attention. Very young staff which gave off an air of inexperience. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. Menu was small so I would have thought they would be able to do their few dishes really well, it was just ok.
