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.

Customer service was very poor .... we arrived without a booking and were offered a table for 1 hour 20 min. Before our time elapsed the doors beside our table were opened in the freezing cold and all surrounding tables and chairs were removed to...be replaced with high tables for next party ... we sat there finishing our meal in the freezing cold and no-one advised us that this would be the case .... appreciate its Christmas and staff under pressure but if staff had communicated this it wouldn't have been an issue ... Needless to say we won't be back ....More

I came here as part of our works Christmas lunch. I liked that we had Christmas hats on our chairs and the restaurant was decorated beautifully, very festive. The staff were great and service was good with our drinks and cocktails. When making the booking...we were asked to do a pre-order but by the day before no one had asked us for it. The food - overall the response from my colleagues was good. We had the festive menu. My only complaint was that the Turkey & Ham came with Cranberry on top and the gravy had Cranberry in which made it very sweet. I have never been to a restaurant where Cranberry is already on the T&H. Condiments should be optional as not everyone likes them. To then put Cranberry in the gravy as well meant the main course was far too sweet for a savory dish and I had to send it back to be reheated. The dessert however (sticky toffee pudding) was lovely.More

I organised a Dinner for a big group from work. There were about 20 of us. Lemon and Duke did an amazing job in accommodating us. Firstly the restaurant was so festive and well decorated and put everyone in the Christmas mood. The staff were...very attentive with all our food/drink requests and quick to respond. They managed us very well, which I know would have been hard since we were a large group. The food was also 10/10 very delicious. We couldn’t all fit on one table which was harder to manage but after our 3 course meal they had arranged a private area for us to stay in which was great as everyone could then move about freely. There was great attention to detail. It was so good that some of us have tried to get bookings for dinner this upcoming month but it’s all booked up. 😂 I will definitely be going again.More

Service is always excellent at Lemon & Duke, staff are very attentive and efficient. Cocktail menu is comprehensive with something for everyone. We had some lunch, lots of lovely choices on the menu. I did order a pina colada tart which was vile but ultimately...it was my choice so I wouldn't reduce the rating on that basis. Great location in the city centre and it is a lovely setting. One of our favourite places in Dublin.More
