Myself and my colleagues had a fabulous evening at The Jar, thanks to the dedicated attention of their team - Jena, Lucas, and everyone else who helped to make our night out so seamless. The food was great value and delicious - there was something...for everyone - and I loved the ease of the wristbands provided for our large party. Nobody was thirsty or hungry throughout the entire evening! Not to mention the gorgeous Terrace event space. Jena, Lucas and the team are truly professionals and offered top tier hospitality. I can't recommend The Jar enough for gatherings large and small! We will certainly be back. Thank you!More

Rude staff and awful experience!!!! Worst place in Dublin, tables were tiny staff were rude and belittling. No love music. Cannot explain how rude staff were, we came for my birthday and they shoved us in a corner and laughed at us when we asked...to move. Apparently poor service isn’t a problem when there’s “a war going on so get over yourselves!” - the manager of The JarMore

Awful food, even worse service where I genuinely had to shout to be noticed (after 25 minutes) and genuinely undrinkable wine. Couldn’t be paid to return.

I was celebrating with a big group of about 20 friends at the Jar recently. It felt as if the staff were deliberately going out of their way to give us terrible service. For the first 2 hours we were there, we were the only...people on the ground floor and still the staff were beyond terrible. Each time we finished a drink, we were waiting roughly 20 minutes before a staff member even took an order. At one stage my friends drink was sent to another table, the waiter came back and said “sorry I sent that drink to that table over there, do you still want one?” Easily the worst service I have ever experienced in Dublin. Camden street is a busy place with a lot of other great bars so I will never be back.More

Booked a table for Friday night for myself and two friends. The manager brought us to our table , the front doors were open and we were all freezing cold. We asked him could We move tables( as there was plenty more available) he said...he would take a look and then never came back to us. He was rude and rushed us when eating our meal. Kept asking if he can take away the plates when we hadn’t even finished eating. We got served a round of drinks by the bartender then the manager came back and told us we had to leave. Potentially the worst customer experience I’ve had in Dublin. We were made to feel uncomfortable the whole time we were there. Used to go there for drinks and food but that will certainly be the last time myself and my friends go there.More

Scouting the city for outdoor dining places yesterday, I spotted the blackboard outside of The Jar advertising the terrace area and I'm so glad I spotted it! We were informed beforehand that they would need the table back for half 7 which still gave us...a generous hour and a half for a table of 5 without a booking. The terrace area is lovely and the heaters ensured that it wasn't too cold. As a vegetarian, I was impressed with the options and went for one of the pizzas which was delicious (there was also a vegan pizza that I didn't go for but sounded lovely). The staff were very accomodating and created a warm atmosphere in The Jar.More

Avoid, that was my worst dining experience Ive ever had. Food was horrible and staff were very unprofessional. We went expecting Base Pizza, but were never told that they had changed management. When the food arrived it tasted like frozen pizza and was cold, tasted...awful. We have been loads of times before and loved it but the change in owners meant the place has gone seriously down hill. 2 large pizzas and chicken wings - worst €45 I spent.More

We hosted our end of year party here - for the third year in a row. Couldn't fault the service given to us - it was second to none. The food was so good and really reasonably priced. They gave us such a good private...area - couldn't be rivaled anywhere else in the city centre. Highly recommend.More

If you contact the Jar directly, I’m sure you’ll be able to reserve a space - they don’t do dinner reservations though!!
