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.

We went there after we had bad luck with another establishment due to lack of reservation. We went there hoping to be lucky. They found a small table for us!!! My advice though is BOOK in advance. The service was great and the food was...very tasty, although I have to add the new trend with less salt in everything in most restaurants for me that I do not have a hypertension issue is a little annoying but respect that is mainly done for the general health. We highly recommend FX for a visit, it is expensive but aren't they all in Dublin.....????!!!!!More

So here's my story and I'm sticking to it... walking though Dublin and the wife and I run across a butcher shop, F.X.Buckley, and loving meat the way I do I was very sad... all that lovely meat and no way to take it home...or grill it on the balcony of the hotel. But WAIT they have restaurants, with available slots for reservations!!! Yay for us, we can eat that beautiful meat and not have to cook it ourselves So we made reservations for F.X. Buckley the Restaurant Started with 1/2 dozen oysters, beautiful fresh flavor Porterhouse, chips, mash, green beans, broccoli Perfectly cooked Cuts like butter Crème Brule Very attentive service 815 reservation, seated exactly on time €142 for two with, tax tips and drinks they have their own steak knives that they sharpen 3 x a week so your meat will cut and not tear Highly recommend - and reasonably priced for a higher end restaurantMore

I think its the 5th time I've visited here over the years and noticed its getting worse each time. This year I've been twice and both occasions steak has not been great! Ask for medium and got raw steak halfway through was told "I can...take it back and cook a bit more" top steak places would take it back and make a fresh one! My partners was cold! Not sure if they changed chefs and staff over the years but I won't be coming back again!More

it was a great evening, with a wide variety of steak being eaten, ranging from blue to cremated (which is soooo wrong), from filet to t-bone and tomahawk. All the food came out together and it was melt in your mouth - can highly recommend...FX Buckleys. On top of this the service was superb Overall a very enjoyable and satisfying eveningMore

We went to the Crowe Street location for dinner - and we arrived a little before our reservation time - but they seated us promptly. The room was beautiful and table set perfectly. The very best steak dinner I have had anywhere - US or...Continental Europe! Service was great, the waiters could not have been more accommodating and attentive. All the steaks are aged and displayed in a case in the restaurant! We had the 22-oz. bone-in rib eye and 8-oz, filet mignons. The beef dripping chips were the best French fries bar none. Wine, Guinness, broccolini and fried onion straws rounded out the meal. The two steak sauces we tried - pepper sauce and garlic butter were delicious. Dipping the fries in the garlic butter was decadent! Too full for dessert although they looked delicious. I cannot stress what a memorable dining experience that evening was - and that's really what it's all about - good food, good service, good conversation and good friends. 10 Stars!!!More

The best steak in Dublin. From the staff thank you Dan and George, the service and attention was wonderful. The food was magnificent beginning to end. First Class food and service. Bringing the tray of butchers cuts of meats (aka Dimitri ) was an added...bonus and a cool presentation. Can’t wait to go back! Thank you!More

This place is a must visit! This is the 3rd time we’ve have been to it now, (temple bar) cocktails are amazing. Staff are lovely. And it’s just an overall lovely experience. I havnt been to any of the other locations but this one is...is super small and doesn’t have too many tables so it just makes the whole meal so much more intimate and cosy! I would definitely recommend the sharing steak platter. AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to go back again…More

My partner and I came in for my birthday meal. Food was exceptional. Even the Caesar Salad was incredible. Steaks were cooked to perfection with delicious sauces (we even got a sauce top up!) Amazingly warm welcome by the staff, who couldn’t have done any...more for us. Big mention to waiter George who brought me a free crème brûlée as a birthday treat. Would come back over from Glasgow just to eat here again. It’s a little bit pricey, but totally worth it. Perfect for a birthday treat!More

Definitely one of the best steaks my family has ever had. The smoked old fashioned was on point and my wife's French martini was delicious. The restaurant was cozy and the waiter was superb.

The food was excellent. The only thing better than the food was the service. My wife and I showed up without reservations and the host found us a table and sat us ASAP. The host and the server were very attentive through out the entire...dinner. When the food came out, the food was amazing. My wife and I ordered the Poterhouse for two and they gave so much food that we couldn't finish. Overall, we were very happy with out experience.More

We had a reservation (advised to pre book) and everything was faultless. The whole meal was absolutely lovely although rather expensive for what you get. Would recommend to others.
