Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's a really nice, cosy restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious, the strip beef salad was unbelievable and the vegan cheesecake was equally delightful. Service was first class. Well with a visit if you get the chance.

Had a gorgeous breakfast here on a Saturday morning. I had quinoa fritters with poached eggs and shared a French toast. Very tasty and good portions for unbelievable prices. Staff were very attentive and welcoming. We come back often and always a brilliant experience!

You now have to download an app and queue online, which I thought seemed like a very good idea. The wait time was 25-45 mins which I could see was decreasing all the time, down to zero. When it got to zero we were waiting...to be called in but instead, queue time was extended 45 mins. Decreased another 20 mins and then extended another 60 mins. What a joke!!! Waited over an hour and a half and ended up going somewhere else for our breakfast. Although I always loved eating in here this queue system would totally put me off going ever again. Questioned it with staff and were told it could be an extra 10 mins or another hr! What a service!!More

Visited today for breakfast and the food and service was excellent but what left the bad taste was we asked for an extra portion of butter and was charged 40 cents...my friend asked for a portion of jam and low and behold extra charge ....our...bill was 42 euro ...we did not sit with 2 cups of coffee for 2 hours ...we spent money .I am not a mean person but I think this was meanness on behalf of the establishment.More

Myself and my husband visited this restaurant after looking at reviews on TripAdvisor. It was a little treasure but the one thing I wanted on the menu was sold out (but I’m sure next visit if I preorder the crab I’ll be very much happy)as...what I wanted on the order which was a crab burger had sold out. But my second choice was braised beef brisket and they had that. It was absolutely gorgeous, I ordered sautéed potatoes with it but thought vegetables came with it as there was none, I was offered veg after but it was too late. My husband had the steak and he thought it was excellent aswell but we both agreed my dish won. Both the waiting staff Laura and John were so good. It’s one restaurant that we’d definitely be back to visit. My advice is check out the menu before hand and if you really do like something try preorder before you arrive so you won’t be disappointed. But all in all book a table 🤗.More

We planned to eat at another restaurant in Cork but they only had high chair seating and prix fixe menu, so we bailed and went next door to The Liberty Grill. The hostess/waitress gave us a warm welcome and seated us immediately, with the understanding...that we would need to vacate the table due to a reservation - not a problem for us as there was plenty of time and we were hungry. We had no idea what to expect but the menu looked good and the restaurant was busy. My wife and I both ordered the same thing: fried turbot with potatoes. Our waitress suggested a small dinner salad, which came out right away and was delicious - a light, flavorful dressing with just the right amount of thinly sliced red onion and tasty mixed green. The turbot was pan fried to perfection with a savory, buttery glaze. Dessert was an upside down apple cake that was excellent. A great meal with happy, attentive service. We were fortunate to get a table so I recommend making a reservation.More

Fortunate to arrive in Cork just as the Liberty Grill started opening Thursday through Saturday for evening dinners. The burgers looked great, but we wanted something a little different and ordered from the weekly specials each visit. The duck with cherry and then the seared...turbot dishes were beautifully cooked, looked like Masterchef creations and were delicious. Coupled with good desserts and drink, all served by very friendly and helpful staff, we had two great meals. Pricing was fair for the quality and location. Highly recommended!More

I've visited Liberty Grill a few times for breakfast and each time has been fantastic. Vegan options are interesting, and the vegan raspberry french toast was delicious. Sweet but not overly sickly which was great. Lovely coffee too. It would perhaps be nice to see...more savoury vegan breakfast options too. Service was friendly and prompt.More

We fell upon this restaurant as we were looking for lunch! Soooo welcoming - waitress advised no room, but took our number and text within 10 mins to advise table ready! Amazing service! Only when we were sat down did we then realize it was...highly recommended everywhere and in lonely planet - we weren’t to be disappointed! Firstly hats off to the front of house staff, who were so busy but had time to make you feel welcome and chatter with you! The food was lovely - we had burgers, I had the vegan option, which were all superb! As for desserts - WOW!!!! Key lime pie and the superlative warm raspberry and apple crumble cake!!!! Were sooooo good! Well done to you all - this is an upmarket yet comfortable and not stuffy but value for money venue! Will be recommending to anyone who comes to the city! I don’t often write reviews ! So there you go …… xMore
