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

Always enjoy our visits to this great restaurant. Good range of cocktails and Single Malt scotch whisky. Lovely chicken liver parfait followed by chicken dish for my wife and a very good fillet steak for me. Very rich chocolate tarts to finish. Good choice of...wines ( ours was super ) and a glass each of Sambuca topped off the night perfectly. All this with friendly service made it a perfect night out. Very highly recommended.More

This is our second visit. The restaurant is well located and accessible. The entrance into the dining room is beautiful with lovely outside sofas in the garden for pre-drinks. The maître d' was welcoming and engaging when we were ready to enter and be seated...The dinning area is large. There are cabin type seats right at the back for larger groups (6-8). Avoid the one closest to the bar as you will see and hear the waiters entering and exiting past your table the whole time. So ask for the middle row. The tables are well spaced / laid out with adequate sized table and comfortable chairs. Making it a comfortable dining experience. Exactly how you want it. Food quality and display is impeccable. We all had 3 course meals and not one of us had any complaint. Perfectly cooked and executed. Great wine selection. My only gripes: 1. The music ambience didn't work that night. We had a live musician but we could hardly hear. 2. Our dining experience on both nights felt rushed. The servers take your starter and main course meals at the same time. Once the starters are complete then within 2 or a few mins thereafter you get your mains. So I would say inform the waiter to first ask you before they start to prepare the mains. This will give you time to finish a glass and catch up with family / friends.More

We left without eating as the service was so poor. We specifically booked a later 8:30pm sitting as not be rushed. On three separate occasions we requested a drink form the bar, the waiter didn’t want to know all he insisted on doing is taking...or meal order pushing us on three occasions with still no drinks , culminating in his final threat “if you don’t order NOW you may not get your food as there is a large table ahead” I explained that this wasn’t a problem that it was our 10th wedding anniversary and we were in no rush. Ten minutes later a man who I can only assume was a manager (as he didn't introduce himself), came over and asked if he could take our food order. He made no attempt to engage. A this point we were so incensed we just asked him to get the drinks bill as we wished to leave. Twenty minutes later still no sign of the bill. We went over to the cash desk and I informed the manager that we just wanted to leave and that we had asked for the bill a considerable period of time ago at table 16. He replied I am busy. At that point I informed him that his attitude was a disgrace, it was obvious he didn't give a continental! I have eaten in this restaurant a number of times, never again. It ruined the evening of our anniversary. MacDonald's has a less pushy, more refined atmosphere. This business model is the worst kind of production machine enacted by a very passive-aggressive staff. You should be ashamed of your standards in bullying your customers into ordering food. I have never experienced anything like this! Don't go it isn't an enjoyable experience.More
