Token is a restaurant - bar - retro arcade - pinball parlour - event space. We have over 32 machines, 22 taps, and an extensive menu for all tastes. We are strictly 18+ from 4pm daily.
Our food consists of our take on high-end fast food. Whether it be an out n in burger, vegan calamari, deep fried Oreo cheesecake bombs, or extremely hot chicken – all of our dishes are cooked to order.
We host events, gaming and not gaming-related, ranging from film screenings to board game meet-ups to pinball leagues to eating challenges to beer tastings & more!
The waiting staff are grand, nothing special about the service really but they got the basic job done. The door staff however are rude and condescending, they completely put the group off their meal. We reserved a table for a time slot and fair enough were 15 or so minutes late to arrive, these things happen. We were in contact with the restaurant about this delay. On arrival we were told they needed the table back in an HOUR. I have several issues with this: 1) it was framed almost as if it was a punishment or repercussion for being late. The way the staff handled it was unnecessarily arrogant and condescending. 2) having reserved a table (even on a busy night), that should provide a guarantee of sorts that you have a table to enjoy your meal with friends, not to scoff down food so the next people can get in. I work in service and that is not the way bookings work. Fair enough, if there's a walk-in you may tell them that's it's busy and there's a slot for an hour but a booking straight after so if that works for them then ok. But having travelled the length of Dublin to be told we had an hour to eat having booked a table was and is completely unacceptable. 3) having made the decision to stay as it was Friday night and finding somewhere else without a reservation would have been difficult, the food took 40 minutes to arrive - from ordering. (I have time stamped Snapchats if you don't believe me). So, in conclusion, booked a table, given the table begrudgingly for an hour having been chastised by staff and made to feel extremely unwelcome and uncomfortable, all for approximately 10 minutes of eating an actual meal. Your reservations system needs work and staff need a bit of retraining. I recommend opening up for bookings of 2 and 3 people as it puts unnecessary pressure on staff to turn over tables for walk ins when all of those tables are by definition walk ins, and this in turn makes the atmosphere very rushed. That urgency doesn't reach the waiting staff however as they seem well numbered and sections seem to be very manageable for them, almost the opposite in terms of rushing. I'd like to recommend the place off the back of the menu and general aesthetics however I had a miserable experience as did the rest of my group. We couldn't get out of there fast enough in the end.
Had a booking at 3 pm for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. I made the on-line booking for 3pm and tried to call to see if they were very strict about under 18's leaving exactly at 4pm. Could not leave a message or email but directed to Facebook, which I do not use. When we arrived for our booking the first thing we were told was that we would have to leave at 4pm as the boys were under 18 yr (we already knew this). We ordered our food promptly at 3.05pm. It arrived at 3.40pm. The fries were cold and the burgers greasy. No one took our drinks order until I had to walk around the place to find a waiter. We were then asked to leave on the dot of 4pm despite the fact that we were still eating. Food was overpriced and overrated. Not a very pleasant experience overall. It may be OK for a drink and the games but we will not come back.
Love this place will definitely be back
I was here for dinner on Friday and Saturday and both times we ordered churros. On both occassions we had to ask the waiter several times where they eere, it seems like they were fogotten. Food is absolutely exceptional so a bit of a pity the service let it down.
The vegan steak was incredible, I'll be back very soon!
Amazing night at Token, staff are great and food is fantastic and great value!
I booked a table for 10 people at 9 pm, came there around 8:30 pm and even though they gave us the table, service for food and drink nice and fast, and atmosphere fantastic, and also all of those vintage arcades and fliperamas, highly recommended, we will be back soon. Cheers
Best place in town for eat and have lot fun! Staff are amazing.
Really enjoyed the whole evening. Group of 10 of us arrived and all got the Cheapskate deal. Great value. Only downfall was when we went to order dessert (all 10 of us) we were told we couldn't as our hour and a half was up and the table needed to be vacated. Being told we could move onto the two smaller blue tables which were full already we decided to finish our drinks and actually go somewhere else for dessert. After having a bill of nearly 400 euro with drinks this was disappointing as we were really enjoying the service.
Twice there now. When anyone asks to recommend a place to eat token is the first that comes to mind mainly for the food especially the bacon jam and parmesan fries. Don't change anything
Great staff, great food, great service, reasonable pricing, and a great selection of games! Will definitely be coming back here!
Absolutely love Token, always a great atmosphere, great food, great beer selection, & guaranteed fun 😊
Great food, awesome games!
The games would need a little TLC but other than that everything was amazing. Suck a great concept. Can’t wait to come back
Awesome spot. I've been a few times. Retro games selection are very impressive, food is very tasty and staff are very helpful and sound. Great day or evening out. I'll definitely be back
Awesome food & drink. Awesome entertainment. The service is a bit slow. You should go 100%
Excellent place for a big group. Food, unreal. Service, great but could be a bit quicker. Staff, all very helpful and nice.
Great place to visit with a few friends, enjoy the drink & food (both excellent) and be prepared to immerse yourself in great nostalgic games.
Just wish I had been better at Time Crisis.
Great evening. good food, service and entertainment.
Thank you for making my birthday a great night x
Best gluten free burger I've ever tasted!
