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.

Me and my boyfriend were here the other night , the whole experience was brilliant. The music was real classic 50s music and some jazz was so nice, the ambiance was 10/10 and the food was so good ! On top of that the waiters were very friendly :) One thing was the menu was very small but other than that great experience !

Would highly recommend this fantastic restaurant in the heart of Dublin. The food was exceptional and very memorable- we particularly enjoyed the kimchi fritters and pork we got for starters. The service was very efficient and friendly, and we felt relaxed and comfortable in the lovely ambience and decor. Would highly recommend!

Last week, I had the pleasure of dining at Restaurant DL with a group of friends, and I must say, it was an experience that left us in awe. From the moment we walked through the doors, we were greeted warmly by the attentive staff, including our wonderful waiter, Maria. Let's start with the star of the show – the food. The delicious pork belly popcorn was an absolute delight. The pork belly was cooked to perfection, with a crispy exterior that gave way to succulent and tender meat. The combination of flavors and seasonings was a true culinary masterpiece, leaving us wanting more with each bite. It was a creative twist on a classic dish that showcased the chef's innovative approach. But that's not all – the beautiful pork ribs were another standout dish. The ribs were incredibly tender, falling off the bone with every bite. The meat was infused with a delectable smoky flavor that was complemented by a mouthwatering barbecue sauce. The portion size was generous, and the presentation was impeccable. While the food at Restaurant DL was undeniably fantastic, what truly enhanced our dining experience was the exceptional service provided by Maria. She was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. Maria went above and beyond to ensure that we had a memorable evening, offering insightful recommendations and accommodating our requests with a smile. Her genuine passion for hospitality was evident throughout the meal, making us feel like valued guests. I highly recommend Restaurant DL to anyone seeking a remarkable culinary adventure with impeccable service.

Hard to square our experience with that of the earlier reviews, except to say the waiter told us this was their opening. Perhaps the restaurant has new owners and the previous reviews don’t apply. The food was lukewarm — at best. My wife had a 38-year record of NEVER having sent a dish back for any reason, and she broke that record here. She’d ordered an orange chicken dish and the nuggets arrived cold. Perhaps cooked just enough to unfreeze them. Reheating barely helped; the reheated dish was only slightly warmer. The “deal” on the night we dined was “All you could eat” and that wasn’t much. Hard pass….

Went here for a Friday night dinner in October, the place was eerily dead and it was quite cold. The food was bad, I got the pork belly and my partner got the hake. The pork belly had far too much fat and the hake was the most flavourless dish I have ever tasted, we both felt a bit ill after our meal. Way too expensive for what we got. I have no idea how this restaurant has nearly 5 stars but the experience we got was pretty bad.

Everything... starters, mains, desserts and drinks are amazing. Julia our waitress was extremely friendly and gave us fantastic service and great recommendations as well as Nico. The chef also popped over to the table to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and was very nice. We highly recommend coming here if you are looking for a nice place to eat and enjoy a few drinks in Dublin City Centre.

We came across this restaurant looking for a completely different place. When we saw the good reviews, we decided to go in without thinking too much. The waitress was very kind, we weren't all that hungry, so we ordered a half rack of ribs and an extra portion of fries.. It's silly to say I haven't had better fries, but there are a lot of ways to make bad sweet potato fries. The ribs were excellent, they came off the bone, perfectly seasoned, the coating was just right, not too sweet, the sauce for the fries was excellent, and the salad on the side was very nice. We're sorry we weren't hungry as much! And even more that they don't work on Monday and Tuesday because we leave on Tuesday, but at least I can recommend this place for you to enjoy. Btw. everything is also very clean, place is spacious, chairs comfortable, toilets clean and tidy, nice music choice..

We walked in from the crowds and noise and stumbled upon a restaurant with great ambience, great food, and friendly service oriented staff. The dishes were tasty with a unique twist, the prices reasonable. A real discovery, a hidden jem. Because it is new, whilst the crowds were queueing for the busy mediocre restaurants, we were able to waltz in to a a diffent class of dining without adue. This one won't remain a secret for long...

My husband and I dined here over the past weekend. The decor was the first thing that struck me when we walked in…it was a lovely rich dark blue colour on the walls with gold light fittings over the bar… it felt very cosy and welcoming. We were seated close to the main door which was a bit chilly so we asked to move to the back of the restaurant which was no problem at all. We both opted for main course only which did not disappoint.. I had the beef burger and fries, hubby had the buttermilk chicken with sweet potato fries. We both cleared our plates which is always a good sign! Very friendly staff especially Jodie who was our server, she looked after us very well. The only negative we had was that the jugs of water were filled on all tables so not sure how long they had been sitting, the water was a bit warm when we went to drink it… not a major issue and the fact that everything else was so good we didn’t even mention it to staff. Overall a lovely dining experience and very reasonably priced!

We enjoyed wonderful cocktails and absolutely amazing food at the DL while visiting Dublin. Our servers and hostess were so attentive but our duck Bao buns appetizer, sea bass and pasta and pork belly with Asian bbq flavors were all OUTSTANDING. What a wonderful evening!!!

What an amazing new find , firstly it’s located in my most favourite part of the city, I believe the streets and side alleys of temple bar have a manic and mystique about them especially at night, it such an atmospheric part of town and always feels alive with music , chat , general hussle and bussle, we went to the DL after hearing of it through the grape vine. The calamari was Devine followed by the mussels which were equally exquisite ( too much seafood my wife remarked but managed to stick her fork in my plate countless times), I had the tiramisu and it all brought me back to a wonderful holiday in Sorrento and Amalfi( pre kids😂). What a beautiful spot and amazing fit out .. temple bar and it’s patrons have brought Dublin up to the highest standards of restaurants and food offering you would see anywhere in Europe, I reminisced about the first time I formally ate in temple bar, it was fat Freddy’s pizzeria ( Made extra famous by the “commitments “ movie ) , I thought that was a magical place and now I’ve found another. Love the DL👍👍

I recently had a “Chef’s especial, Mongolian Tsuivan” which was an absolutely correct decision I’ve made. It was delicious and gave true Mongolian experience. Honestly, I am so impressed with texture of the dish, flavor and presentation. I am so delighted that I have found a place which services such a great Mongolian cuise in Dublin. Highly recommanded place for whoever would like to try Asian cuisines with great taste and high standard of service. Even everything was perfect, I would say service was a bit slower than expectation. Especial thanks for talented Chef and friendly, careful floor staffs😉

The DL offer a unique dining experience with a charming atmosphere and good food. I highlight the exceptional service from Julia, the waitress, who was not only attentive and pleasant but also surprised with her participation in live music, adding a special touch to the evening. Undoubtedly, an experience worth repeating.

The DL is a lovely new restaurant on Crow Street. Casual dining with a very experienced Mixologist on duty. The white wine and tomato sauce that comes with the mussel dish is sublime. Will definitely be back.

Canadians in town for a vacation and we stumbled on DL. It exceeded our expectations! The service was amazing, Jody was fantastic! The food was all unreal, between our groups of 6 we tried most of the menu and every bite was delicious!!! Can't recommend this place enough!! It's a hidden gem. ❤️ Should have taken more photos but the food was just to good to wait!
