We visited here a few years ago but for various reasons, including COVID, it's been quite a while. However, we were there on Saturday night and we were not disappointed! We were shown to our table as soon as we arrived; the comfort and lighting...is perfect. We had couple of glasses of prosecco to start and then had our starters. We went for fish options all the way. Everything was just delicious. The service here is truly 5-star, from start to finish. We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday, and we just thoroughly enjoyed the evening - although my wife was a little embarrassed when the staff sang "Happy Birthday" at the table! We highly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go back again.More

I spent an excellent evening here with my daughter on her 27th birthday. She and I are foodies and know this restaurant from previous visits. It did not disappoint. Service was excellent, the food was really outstanding and the staff went to great lengths to...make us few comfortable and provide advice on food and wine. This is an excellent place to enjoy fine food in a relaxing environment.More

We were staying at the Merrion Hotel which is located right next door and made reservations prior to arrival in Dublin. The food was very good and the service was outstanding. We started with the crispy prawns and both had fish for our main course...- great food!More

Over priced, Over Hyped & really average food. Went with my wife and her sister and her hubby. Left feeling hungry. The plates were shabby and what was on them was so overpriced it's laughable. To be fair we had a nice time but then...again we would have a nice time if we ate at Ishmael's Kebab counter around the corner on Baggot street lol. Would I go back? No Have a look at the 30 euro monkfish 'special' below. It actually looked like it was sitting, ready in the kitchen for idiots to go for it. Spinich and mash - extra.More

One of the most special meals we have had for a long time. The tasting menu is super. Each course was a delight and the service was excellent. The chef who designed the menu is a genius and it was perfectly executed. We can’t wait...to go back. Superb. Very good value for this standard of food.More

Wonderful experience, delightful food (tasting 6 course menu), professionally trained staff. I cannot find a reason not to recommend a place and I'm already thinking about paying the brasserie another visit soon.

Bit of a treat to ourselves to celebrate coming out of covid hibernation. Not a cheap evening by any means but it was extremely enjoyable. The food was delicious. We were served by Sabrina (I think) and she was relaxed enough to take the mickey...out of me which I love. Didn't feel stuffy at all. All the staff were lovely and doing a great job. Fabulous Irish coffee which is always a good sign. Served a sorbet as a palette cleanser and little cakey treats as well. Lovely evening, lovely restaurant. Just to add I felt covid protocols were well respected, which is important to me.More

Great Dublin restaurant, I can never fault the food . At Christmas I had the frois gras to start , although the tempura prawns are normally my favourite . It was stunning, it was followed by the Lamb . Top. Class, also excellent service and...staff particularly the Maitre d ‘Tommy’ (name doesn’t sound very french😂😂). Can’t wait for it to reopen !!!!.
