Hi there, We had a really excellent meal, the dishes from start to finish were all interesting and delicious (as was the wine). There was nothing we didn't enjoy. The staff were charming. Definitely will be back!

We loved the room and also the fact that the restaurant is almost hidden on the street. We had to search a little for it and bit like finding a hidden gem when we did find it, recognising the face silhouette on window. Service and Food was excellent. Dishes were delicious and presented beautifully. Pricing of food was fair. We thought the wine was on the expensive side. €43 for our Riesling was ok,but we definitely think €12 and €11.50 for 2 extra glasses of wine was exhorbitant - only realised it when we examined the bill after - which left a sour note. I could live with it, if we hadn't already purchased a bottle of wine, but would suggest, a lower price for single glass refills when a bottle has already been purchased. .

Our food was lovely but the waitress was like an egg timer constantly at our table ticking down to 8 o clock. We were reminded approximately every 10 minutes that the table was needed at 8, we were on time for our booking and ate quickly as we were hungry, if 2 hour slots are not enough you should have longer sittings. At 7 10 we asked to wait 10 minutes before having dessert, we were again reminded we need to be gone at 8, 50 minutes left and we cant wait 10?! At 7 30 we were reminded again. At 7 40 we had paid the bill and were packing up and once more we were reminded, 20 minutes to get out the door! The food was lovely but definitely completely over priced for the service. The smell of damp was quite overpowering too.

Food is absolutely delicious although portions are a bit small for the price. Atmosphere was nice and service very prompt. Our table was a bit too small for seven people making it especially hard when having to use cutlery and try to cut food. Bear in mind that the Family style main course take a full 40/45 minutes to cook so if consider that if you are under time pressure or order an appetiser or pasta if you are starving ;-)

We had a gorgeous meal at Variety Jones. Great attention to detail, with familiar dishes done in unfamiliar ways. Everything cooked to perfection. Not the cheapest night out maybe, but very much a case of getting what you paid for. Lovely service too. Will definitely be back.

The food is some of the most interesting and exciting I’ve had in Dublin, service was excellent and friendly... really appreciated having a look into the kitchen and talking to Keelo! Will be back ASAP..... only crap thing was we had the seats at the front door which is blocked off from seeing the kitchen and the rest of the restaurant .... (only a minor complaint)
