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.

A small group of friends headed into Fallon and Byrne for a Friday evening bite to eat. Had we booked? No. Did they have a table? Yes. Did they tell us they needed it back for another sitting? No. Did they spend their time circling like sharks and delivering the bill before we wanted it? Yes. Once they realised we had finished ordering they put constant pressure on us to pay and get out. They had a sharing platter which I asked could it be modified for one person. Yes it could. It was tasty, but when the bill came did they charge full sharing platter price? Yes. One very friendly waitress whom I can't fault. But, will we be back????? Nope!

Popped in here before a meeting. So ordered a cup of coffee and a ham and cheese toastie ( secret pleasure) gorgeous ham and cheese , hot and crunchy. To my surprise from Mon - Friday until 11 am they do a special offer so it was €5.25 for a coffee and the sandwich. Savage value . Runs across porridge , granola, bacon and sausage toastie.

Much can be forgiven for any restaurant which serves good vegetables, especially when they are included with the main dish, not charged extra. With the Pork Saltimbocca (of which more below) I received cubes of zucca, sprouting broccoli and varicoloured baby carrots, all perfectly cooked. The said “Pork Saltimbocca” was hilariously mis-named, being a perfectly acceptable pork fillet stuffed with thin-cut bacon. No sage I could taste and of a very Irish heartiness. The wines were excellent - a catarratto and especially the verdejo – and fairly priced. The service was very professional and then, at the end, above and beyond. My taxi app was not working and the maitre(sse?) d’ came downstairs and along the street to find a taxi: wow! Not, to be sure, the best or poshest restaurant in central Dublin but good honest food and wine at acceptable prices and topped with excellent service.

Went to the Wine Cellar with my guest who had never been, I have not been in a couple of years but always had great experiences. The first thing I noticed was the absence of a queue on the stairs, there were always people queuing any time I have been there. The service was dreadful, when I asked for vegan food the waitress pointed to the ‘charcuterie’ platter. The pepper milk wasn’t working, we asked a number of times for a replacement and eventually they slammed a normal white pepper shaker down on the table. A number of staff were rude. The food was just ok and small portions. Too expensive for what it is, the standard has dropped dramatically

Went for a midweek lunch last week. Lovely room and excellent serving staff who were very welcoming, efficient and very happy to make suggestions as to what we might enjoy. The Angus/Wagyu burgers were magnificent and quite possibly the best burgers we had ever tasted. We had oysters to start which were served either naked with tabasco or grilled with garlic butter, both very tasty.They have a well thought out wine list to suit all tastes (and wallets) and we will definitely return to try out their great value early bird one evening soon.

My friend and I had the pleasure of having a meal in the Exchequer street restaurant. My friend who is vegan often finds it difficult to find restaurants who cater to her dietary needs. This was a non-issue here as F&B provided an extensive, seasonal and creative vegan menu. I myself had no such dietary needs so I chose the normal a la carte menu. The food was to die for! I had octopus and monkfish and my friend had the asparagus salad followed by the risotto. Most impressive however was our server Bogdan. He was very attentive and outgoing without being intrusive. It was easy to see that he worked with an attention to detail. Simple things like bringing olive oil to the table as well as butter to accommodate vegan dietary needs (all without being asked) made the experience all the more enjoyable. We will definitely be returning in the near future!

We went here last night without a confirmed booking but the charming manager on duty immediately brought us to a lovely table in the elegant dining room. We opted for the well priced early bird and both had the salmon ceviche starter and Wagyu beef burger for main course. The food quality was extraordinary, the starter light and refreshing and perfect for a warm summer evening and the meat in the burger was of very high quality and you really could taste the beef. The best we've had in ages. The service was efficient, relaxed and friendly. There was a small wedding party there which really added to the pleasant atmosphere. we will be back again for sure

Fallon & Byrne provided the food for two parties I had in August. The food was exceptional, the canapés were a massive hit. The parties were really sucessful and in a significant way because of the delicious food. The staff I dealth with when ordering and arranging delivery were, very professional, really helpful and really helped me feel comfortable that they had it all under control. The cost of the food was also really reasonable given the high quality and the numbers being catered for. Would verly gladly recommend Fallon & Byrne for your catering needs.

Shop is excellent with lots of goodies for foodies. Meat and veg counters are especially good. I am a regular customer and called in weekly during lockdown for my fix ! Just one point - the ground floor space for diners has been almost removed (there’s perhaps 3 seats) & downstairs was closed when I called at lunch time so I’d suggest you book ahead and check opening times. There’s a new deal launching where you get a 25e restaurant voucher when you spend that amount in the shop ( brilliant idea !) I ordered a tuna sandwich and had it at the ground floor counter but the bread was dry/stale - this is the second time this happened to me so make sure you don’t take the top sandwich when ordering.

Delicious food, beautifully cooked. Steak very tender and perfectly cooked to medium rare. Salmon was nearly raw inside so was sent back and replaced so we were offered a free dessert Sides of broccoli and spring greens nicely flavoured and still with a nice crunch. Beautiful chocolate semifreddo. Very pleasant waiters gave very good and friendly service. However, 2 mains, 2 sides, 2 glasses of wine, the free dessert and 2 coffees came to €97.

I stayed at an aparthotel in Dublin that had a fully equipped kitchen. This grocery store was exactly what I was looking for to buy typical Irish ingredients that are not of the lowest quality or too ordinary. I found there a great selection of meats and cheeses, bread, veggies, and sweets. I really enjoyed shopping there. I did not try food from the restaurant as this time I wanted to prepare something at my hotel, a kind of home meal replacement. The store is a bit pricey, but it is not a typical grocery store. This is the type of place that I could easily make "my place" if I lived here.

Visited Friday 1st October early evening with 2 friends. My friends had the early bird menu and I ate from the Ala carte. I had lamb which was basic, sauce not to my liking. Smashed spuds were not fully heated. Chicken from the early bird was tiny and served with very little. The vegetarian lasagna was very nice. Desserts were nice but the most annoying part was they tried on more than 1 occasion to remove our plates while eating. I addressed this with the lady when paying and leaving a tip, she walked off abruptly and was very rude. Prices did not equate to quality, value or service. Disappointing

I had dinner twice in Fallon and Byrne, once after lockdown 1 and once after lockdown 2. On both occasions I was really impressed with their Covid protocols like the spacing of the tables, the option of a menu via QR code or single use paper, individual sanitizers for each table setting etc. And that’s before I mention the food! The latter was excellent on both occasions. Overall, in these strange times eating out is a real treat and I have no hesitation in recommending Fallon and Byrne to the fussiest of diners.

My wife and I went to dinner here and while the food and wine were good we did encounter some issues. For starters the lighting was WAY too low. Every table around us had to either use the light from their phones or the candles on the table to read the menus. Then the service felt extremely rushed. There was maybe five minutes from the time that the starters were cleared to the mains arriving. Also, and this may seem like a small issue, but we asked for more bread and the guy gave each of us a piece and then asked ME if I would like a second piece and walked off without asking her.....so it seems chauvanism is alive and well in F & B !!

I have had many great meals here but my visit yesterday was very disappointing. As a starter I had the excellent trio of beetroot salad - fresh crisp and delicious! However, what followed was simply an unacceptable vegetarian option. The 'Harissa-spiced Carrot & Lentils with braised fennel, charred red onions, natural yoghurt' was not as described. Instead a slop of bland lentils with three over cooked baby carrots, and four pieces of roast onion arrived. No fennel and no yoghurt. It was an unpleasant dish and not acceptable in this day and age. The extra sharing dish of red onion was delicious. This was not a cheap lunch and my companions did not complain about their food so maybe mine was an exception. At 4.30 - in a near empty restaurant we were then asked to leave by a very grumpy female maitre D.We had arrived at 2.30. I will not be returning.
