Went out for a meal here on 11th March. Place was very busy.
Had a drink at the car first. No where to sit down as all seats occupied. Had to stand for a drink. No apologies from the staff.
Got called to the dining room approx 30 mins after my booking time.
Shown to our seats. Table had no cloth. Just a veneer top that had been hastily wiped. Had to ask for salt and pepper to be brought.
My friend sat down on an upholstered seat only to discover it was soaking wet. Whether it was water, urine or a drink we still don't know. A complaint to the staff was met with a mumbled sorry and the chair was changed. No offer to pay for dry-cleaning or a complimentary drink.
I had mussels in white wine and cream. Small farmed variety. Not what you would expect in a restaurant on the Pier in Howth. My friend had chowder which was so so. Grilled sole was €38 per persom. No veg or potato included. Pino Grigio was €25 for a bottle. Passed on dessert and had 2 espressos. Bill came to €180. Complaint to manager on leaving was treated with indifference. He admitted he had knocked over a wine bucket earlier at the table. The offending chair shouls have been moved. I will never go here again.
