Went out for couple's dinner and had to seat outside where the noise is not at all appropriate for dinner, unless you love extreme noise and SUPER small tables closed to all the other small tables. Food was great but over priced considering the ambience...and the service we got. That would be tolerable by all accounts if the table service attendants weren't condescending as they are. For that reason, we will absolutely not go back there.More

I was in Coppinger Row last night for a work dinner. We sat outside. They have an excellent menu. Love the fact that the tiger prawns can be a starter or a main. Amazing, high quality food. Lots of great options for vegetarians. I had...the tiger prawns as a starter and risotto for my main. Unbelievably tasty. Great selection of Irish gin and of course Poacher's tonic - the best. Service was excellent although there was a longer gap than normal between first and second course. It didn't bother us as we were not moved off our table and we were not in any rush.More

A very pleasant experience in Coppinger Row. Food was delicious, menu is quite small and they didn’t have the chicken main course but what we all had couldn’t be faulted and was tasty and well received! The service is something that stood out for me,...having been in a few places in town in the past couple of weeks this is 100% the best service around! Lovely friendly staff that couldn’t do enough for you, and never a wait for a drink! The Solero was particularly nice 😊More

We really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent, but it was fairly unpleasant sitting outside due to Pygmalion being a step away. The very loud music playing, people lined up next to where you're eating, many of whom are smoking, was a real...bummer as you're trying to enjoy a lovely dinner. I would recommend trying once they open indoor dining againMore

Simply fabulous evening spent here. Food was superb as were the drinks (especially the cocktails) but what sets this restaurant apart from any others I've been in since restrictions lifted was the service. Our waiter was so good - he gave us great advice as...to what drinks would work with our food and on many occasions pre-empted our needs by refilling our water and repleneshing the extra ice we ordered (it was a beautiful balmy evening) before we asked. Haven't seen such good service in action in a long time and really sets this restaurant apart. All in all a fantastic evening and can't wait to come back.More

Delicious food, divine cocktails and the best service from start to finish. After a long few months at home we couldn't have had a better night out.

Our booking had to be moved to the heated outside area (on the street of the same name) due to Covid 19 restrictions on restaurants in Dublin at the time. So a word about that first. Bookings are limited to 90 mins and that allows...for thorough cleaning although the tables were a little too close for my liking to be honest. Maybe stagger them a bit? That said, staff were masked and sanitizer was provided. So to the food. Despite the difficulties they had to operate under food was very good. The starter of flatbread with lamb and hummus was just the right side of spicy and reminiscent of Turkish holidays. Crab starter was good too. The steak was very good, cooked exactly the medium rare way I wanted and with that and the quality of the meat it needed little else to be perfect. The mushroom in pastry was excellent - a fantastic mix of various mushrooms. Perfect autumn dish. Didn't have dessert, not enough time. Good value and good list of wines by the glass. Not going to pretend it was similar to the buzzy nights and longer menus when we were there in the past but fair dues to the team for making a restricted night out as good as it could be.More

Very disappointing dinner out on Saturday night. On our arrival there was a large group in the window area where 2 tables seemed to merge and they were all interacting closely with each other. Also, the behaviour of one waiter made for an uncomfortable hour...as I saw him repeatedly take his visor off and spin it around on his fingers a few times, then put it on his face again and subsequently pick up glasses of drinks to serve to customers outside. He also made no effort at social distancing while taking orders or showing us to our table and I saw him hug 3 different customers as they left. The food was tasty but really could not relax as I didn't feel safe in this restaurant in the current circumstances.More

We visited this restaurant this past weekend and were extremely disappointed with the food offering. We had booked beforehand as we had been asked to do but too be honest I don't think it would have made much difference as there seemed to be plenty...of tables. The menu appears to have condensed from previous visits but that also seemed to be the case with some of the other restaurants we visited in Dublin as well. The service was good and attentive and the location of the restaurant is good just across from the very busy Pygmalion but our meal was dreadful it was poorly put together and presented even worse. I'm sorry to say this as I know it hasn't been easy for restaurantours lately but you really need to improve the quality and presentation of your dishes if you expect people to keep paying your prices.More

We had dinner here on the recommendation of a few people. It was fine but other than two good main courses everything was either expensive or a bit unimpressive or both. Starters small and pricey, desserts quite ordinary. The people serving were quite disinterested. When...they were asked about the dishes they gave very little information. Not somewhere we would bother to go again and certainly not impressive as some of the reviews suggested.More
