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.

My friends and I attended this venue for our Christmas drinks. The staff were so friendly and the atmosphere was brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed the night and the delicious cocktails were a hit. We will definitely be back , I highly recommend The Jar .

They served 3 rounds of 12 tequilas that were shamelessly diluted with water, every single one of us felt that. They crossed the border between swindle and insults. Never ever more.

We visited the Jar for a work night out on 25/11/2023. The Jar had a lovely environment and I would have been content to visit again. Unfortunately, the bouncer in the pub approached my male colleague while in the smoking area and told him to...leave out of no where while we were having a conversation. He would not provide us with a reason for this and continued to state it was a managements decision upon request. My two colleagues and I attempted to speak the bouncer politely to enquire about the incident. My colleague had been with me the entire night and none of us saw any incident to require bring removed from the pub. The bouncer would not provide us with a reason for this and I believe that is the least that can be offered while being requested to leave. My colleague did not engage in any arguments or antisocial behaviour that would usually result in being kicked out. I no longer wish to return to this pub following this incident and for this reason I have given it one starMore

I did read about this restaurant before I ate here and I have to say the reviews did not disappoint. The menu choices is burger or chicken with a few other bits. I ordered a pepperoni pizza and fries with an amaretto cocktail. The cocktail...was freshly made and was great flavour could taste the amaretto flavours within the cocktail. The chips were like fries which was brilliant, well seasoned and perfectly cooked! The pizza was perfect size great seasoning and the pepperoni had a nice flavour with the cheese. I would highly recommend going to the restaurant, my only small gripe is I could not work out if it table or bar service I ordered at the bar but others ordered at there tables seemed bit mixed but I would not let this put you off goingMore

Stopped in for a Sunday night pizza. The place was absolutely dead (we were the only people in there for the first half an hour before a group came in!) so we were a bit unsure but went ahead anyway due to the excellent reviews...on trip advisor. First waitress was a bit frosty but she went on break and the barman that replaced her was very friendly. The pizzas were excellent. Couldn’t fault the meal at all.More

It's a real shame that all the hard work the kitchen staff put in to the nice food is totally ruined by rude uninterested , surly staff who really don't give a damn, is it because I am British that we were treated so rudely...by your young staff or do they treat everyone like this?, I realy wish I had spoken to the manager but if a place is run like this I think he clearly knows already, Your good food us not worth your very rude staff, especially the young lady server who almost snarled "enjoy" to us with her attitude, and the male sever didnt give a damn when our order was taken wrong and never seemed bothered to fix the problem in a timely maner, I would like to say that when they go to visit any counrty as a tourist that I hope they are NOT met with the same distane as we were,just dont work in the hospitality industry if you cannot be hospitable.More

Average experience overall. Bar is nice but customer service wasn’t at its best. Group was squashed into small booth which had lots of people uncomfortable for the duration of our night. DJ was good but did not seem to be open to song requests and...was not willing to interact with the crowd. Pizzas were nice.More

Great pizza and nice drinks. Only disappointment was being put on a large table at the back of the restaurant which as there was only 2 of us and we had booked in advance was a shame as it lacked some atmosphere that the smaller...tables at the front had. Service was good.More

We visiting the Jar to grab some dinner and a few cocktails as it did gluten free pizza! The food was lovely and was really tasty. You seemed to be able to order all of the pizzas gluten free which was exciting! I ordered a...mushroom pizza with bacon pieces and my boyfriend had a spicy pepperoni and ndjua. There was a slight wait for the food and the restaurant didn’t seem to be particularly busy. We visited on a Monday night.More

I went there with my colleagues few weeks ago. The service was poor, staff were all over the place, they did not know who (which table) ordered what. Also, very disappointng to have a list of cocktails, with specified ingredients, however I ordered Pornstar Martini...and this wasn't it. Literally, you could see from just looking at it that that was not a proper Pornstar Martini. One of the main ingredients is passion fruit juice. There was not a drop of that juice in my cocktail. Very dissapointing. Another thing to note is the staff at the bar (1st floor) throwing empty bottles into their "bottle bin" (which is literally behin the first booth) is very much distrubing for those sitting there. You might consider putting that bin somewhere else. Food was good, that is the only thing for which I can say that it was ok. I hope these recommendations/reviews will be taken on board for the sake of the business. Because, for example, word of mouth is a powerful tool for any business, and in my case, I will not be recommending your place to my friends. You can do better!More

This was ranked the #3 pizza place in Dublin, but I was not impressed. The service was lacking, my pizza came out cold and my salad came with my cold pizza rather than first… the place was empty. Taste was mediocre.

We came here on a Sunday evening for pizza. We were one of two couples in the place, which worried us a bit. They only had three white wines by the glass. I ordered a Chardonnay only to be told they had no Chardonnay. I...had another type, which was OK. We ordered two pizzas - the prosciutto and a margherita with mushrooms. Both pizzas were pretty good. The problem was the wait staff. They were inattentive. We had to stand up and flag them down for drinks as well as when we wanted the check.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!!
