Was recently for dinner with hubby and friends at Marco Pierre White. I don't normally write reviews, but felt I had to in this occasion. The food was really good, but what really stood out was the excellent service and attention to detail by a...gentleman who I think was called "Gio". He was so attentive without being intrusive he went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. Thank you, and can't wait for our next visit.More

6 of us attended Marco Pierre Whites last night, November 21st and all of us were extremely disappointed. Firstly, our server was so rude and impatient. When we first arrived we were one of the only tables full yet our waiter was so impatient he...walked away without even taking everyone’s drink order. We had to wait far too long to get our order taken and waited over 45 minutes for our food to come (that was only average). We had to complain about the wait on our food and when asked if it was on its way we were spoken down to like children. This is absolutely not how you treat your customers, especially in a restaurant with such a high status. Not to mention the fact that we had ordered a side dish that never came out yet we were still charged it on the bill. An extremely unprofessional restaurant with inexperienced staff that have very poor people skills. I had previously attended Marco Pierre Whites on Dawson Street and it was miles ahead of this one in Donnybrook. Safe to say I won’t be back and would not recommend to anyone.More

It is beyond me that this place would even put Michelin Star in their advertising. 8 middle aged thirsty for wine and hungry for steak showed up last evening. We got terrible service and poor quality steak. We had a reservation to return at the...end of the trip, that has been cancelled. Service One waiter for 8 and he was looking after other tables. Not acceptable. One guy waited over 20 min for a drink. Glasses were not cleared, water bottles remained empty, when asked for a condiment, didn’t arrive until u ate the food. No fault of the server, he did his best. Wine We ordered what was advertised as the 2010 Rioja, a stellar year and bottle priced at 95 euro. When it arrived, it was the 2011. To the average consumer of wine, no big deal, but when you order it because it’s the 2010, and the 11 shows up, that’s actually false advertising. Very poor on their part. The Steak We all ordered the Delmonico ribeye..when mine arrived, it looked some something you might put on a sandwich, maybe. It was 36 euro, should have been charged 10. This is supposed to be a steakhouse, it failed miserable in all areas. The sides were ok, but if you can’t make a fry or onion ring, you have bigger issues. Please save ur money and go elsewhere. Unfortunately, this place will not be around after another year. If the are to be they will need to step up their game big time, not sure you can recover from this.More

My husband and I have had mainly negative experiences in the hospitality sector since restrictions have lifted and all things considered, I was not looking forward to this night. I'm not usually happy to be wrong but that is indeed the case on this occasion....The food was perfect, the service was top notch and the atmosphere was spot on. Yes it was expensive but I believe that it was worth every penny and I look forward to returning.More

Ate at MPW in Donnybrook a week ago and have to say it was my worst dining experience in a long time. We felt rushed from the moment we sat down to when we were presented with the bill at 11.10pm when not requested. I...was asked if I was happy to have my fillet steak cooked "butrerfly", which is a first in any restaurant in order for it to be cooked quicker. The peppercorn sauce was really watery and the steak mediocre at best. The toilets were a disgrace, empty rolls in each cubicle and only toilet roll in one..for a restaurant of supposedly this calibre I was expecting a lot more. They took an €80 deposit for 4 people when booking in November, despite this not being on their T&cs - so I would ensure to check your bank accout when reserving. When I raised this over email, they said that they had not changed their online T&cs at time of booking in November. Not Good enough in my opinion. Summary- rude staff, mediocre food and terrible bathrooms. Would not visit again.More

A little haven in the middle of lockdown restrictions. Great service, scrumptious food and very cosy underneath the outdoor heaters. Will be back!

Three of us had lunch here last Saturday on the outside heated terrace. Despite there being only one waiter and manager on duty the service and attention we got was second to one, the waiter (Robert I believe) mixed cocktails, took orders, delivered food and...drinks and all with a professional manner. Although he was busy he never seemed rushed and we were awkward in that we made some requests for changes to dishes ordered. the menu is short but very well thought out and it covers most tastes. The wine list is equally short but offers a good enough choice. We had butternut squash soup, goats cheese and beetroot salad, club sandwiches on focaccia and creme brûlée and everything was tasty, generous and fresh. A very pleasant afternoon indeed. Will definitely come back again.More

We had a lovely relaxing evening at Marco Pierre Whites. We opted for the Friday Supper Club menu which was €70 per couple. I was a bit nervous about dining out due to COVID but the tables were very well spaced out and I felt...instantly at ease on arrival. I made some poor choices (the salad for starter had too much beetroot and very little cheese, and the chocolate tart for dessert was nothing special), but my partner choose the soup and creme brulee which were both divine. The steak was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. I was under the impression that there would be live music so I was a little disappointed that this wasn't the case (perhaps they changed this due to COVID) but the atmosphere was still excellent and the staff were really helpful and friendly.More
