As a previous review said Covid rules were not evident, service was poor and slow, new waitress did her best. Had not been here in a few years and the same hole/dip is in the middle of the floor since i was last here, one...patron fell over in it, no staff saw him fall. Food was very slow to arrive and when it did one of the steaks was criminated and had to go back so one member of our party had to eat their dinner whilst we had hour desert and got ready to go..More

My friends and I had a really lovely evening in the Wine House. The food was excellent with such a varied menu. Big range of pizzas and pastas, plenty of chicken and other meat dishes. Having said that, I had the salmon, beautifully presented on...a bed of potatoes with veg. The starters were good too, the bruschetta which I had, plus chicken wings, soups etc. The desserts looked gorgeous but I didn't order one myself. The place has a full bar and the prices are very reasonable. Service was excellent, so swift, polite and attentive. The place was spotless and had a nice decor and ambiance. I'd be happy to go back and definitely pleased to recommend.More

I stopped by the Wine Bar today for a takeaway, I got an arrabiata with chicken and my friend got a Caesar salad to go and the food was beautiful. I’ve been here a few times and it is by far my favourite place for...food. I’ve brought family and friends before and they’re all very fond of it. The staff are always so welcoming and the food is always of an excellent standard. Would 100% recommend to anyone! Will be back!More

I was used to go to Wine House before Covid-19 pandemic. The good experiences and availability on Uber Eats motivated me to try the delivery service. I am delighted I did. The quality remains consistent. The portions are generous. The Family Meal Deal offers good...value for money. I used the delivery service two more times and will keep using it during restricted social interactions.More

I have eaten here a number of times and the food never dissapoints. However it was quiet busy on this occasion and the service was not good. We waited 20 min before having to call someone just to order a drink, then they left wine...on the table without glasses, we eventually had to go to the bar and get our own glasses. Everytime we needed something it was an effort to try get a staff members attention. I hope they put more time into their staff training. The food is very tasty and i do recommend it on a quieter night.More

Upon arrival it looked quite small from the outside but hey looks can be deceiving it quite big inside spacious and well lit, we were greeted by a young waitress who told us our table wasn’t quite ready and asked would we mind waiting out...in the rear terrace area for a few moments, we ordered drinks from there and were also shown the menus whilst we waited, we were promptly shown to our table by the manager and from there on in the experience was great, the waiting staff worked every table around us you weren’t assigned one member of staff, the starters were great I had bruschetta pomodora and my partner had tri coloured salad and we shared a garlic and cheese flatbread, all were absolutely flawless and out very quickly, for main I had pizza of which I chose my own toppings of ham pineapple pepperoni garlic and rocket leaves, with chilli oil over the top, maybe the pizza could’ve been in for an extra couple minutes but it was still delicious my other half had beef bourguignon with mash and chips on the side she said was also cooked to perfection, we both had banoffee for desert and I also asked for an affogatto (ice cream and espresso) which really hit the spot at the end of the evening, so overall the atmosphere was very pleasant with our conversation flowing whilst there was ambient music playing in the background the staff are excellent at what they do and the place was absolutely spotless the food excellent and priced reasonably too, we hope to return sometime soon , thank you for a very pleasant evening and experience...

First impressions online were very good menu choice and easy online booking service. on arrival very bright and freshly decorated and inviting. Staff were very polite attentive and good customer service. Food was fresh, tasty and prepared well. Could not fault it. While the experience...was okay to good the reason I dont feel comfortable returning is there was very little o no covid protocols in place. The staff did not where masks, they didn't take my phone number for contact tracing. There was no signage regarding 2m distance, none of the tables had reserved signs due to social distance. the salt and pepper dispensers were still on table. There was one bottle of sanitiser at entrance and in toilets. I failed to see any signs advising customer of their covid measures for customer safety. The staff never mentioned the covid protocols in conversation. The more i think about it you wouldn't know if covid was happening at all in this restaurant.i didn't feel reassured as a customer that this restaurant took their staff and customer safety seriously at all. So many other restaurants are making such a huge effort and expense to reassure and welcome customers back this one didn't unfortunately. I'd like to think they will when they see this review but only time will tell. Pity about the poor covid compliance because the food, customer service, choice, decor and ambiance was good.More

The best restaurant in Swords is actually Old Schoolhouse. wine house is empty for a reason- subpar service and charging for water.
