We visited The French Table on Friday 18th December. The Covid-19 plans were impeccable and we felt totally safe throughout the meal. Fantastic food, great value and a great atmosphere. We will most certainly return once restrictions allow.

Once again The French Table lived up to all my expectations and it was especially important this time as I was joined by a dear friend who had never been to TFT before. It has been too long since I ate there and should not...ever leave it go so long again. Atmosphere, décor, greeting and most importantly, the food were too class. And my friend said she will definitely return!More

My friend and I enjoyed dinner today after months off due to Covid. IT was relaxing, beautiful and worthy of recommendation. Menu has been limited but whatever was served was just right.

My wife and I are here on a Saturday night. Restaurant was busy and while some would say it had a lively atmosphere...maybe were getting old...but it was so loud we couldn’t even have a conversation. Very average food and really expected more. I really...couldn’t believe that I paid €24 for an average small steak...and it literally came with nothing else...nothing...just the steak on a plate. Paying extras for extras left right and centre. All in all, we felt that it was overpriced for average foodMore

We were staying In The Clayton and decided to try The French Room as it is located nearby. We had a great evening, friendly, professional staff, lovely atmosphere and the food and wine were excellent. My husband and I both chose Boeuf Bourguignon with mash...followed by Creme Brûlée - all delicious with authentic French flavours , Coffee was served with a delicious petit four. I would recommend The French Room to anyone staying in LimerickMore

It’s always better to book if you can to be sure of having a table. It does depend on the size of the party also. If it’s for 2 people there should t be a problem on Sunday, however with the Christmas season approaching it... More
