Was a bit disappointed with the service, there was no salt and pepper or hand sanitizer at our table and there was at other tables, also the presentation of the food was poor, generally the chips would come in little bowls or serving dishes but this time they were just on the same plate as the food, quality of the food was still good

Food very disappointing. We all ordered different dishes and none of them were up to the old standard of Blue Bar. The presentation was poor too.

Overall I love the Blue Bar, I’ve been many times. On this occasion however, the chicken wings were really dry. Like they were under the heat lamp all day… disappointing as they’re famous for their wings. The service was immaculate, friendly and attentive. I will go back, but maybe not the wings again 🤔

Beautiful Dublin bay prawn tagliatelle however portion small for price. Prefer to add Parmesan myself rather than chef applying it to finished dish.

The food was nice but the portions were ridiculously small. €20 for a tiny portion of chicken risotto which was almost totally rice and had very little chicken. Very poor value for money.
Service was excellent-staff were really friendly, professional and attentive.

Only comment is that the size of the chicken wing portion was significantly smaller than last time I got it, which was last week.

Really good service. Potato Bravas was a great vegetarian option for starters, but with only 2 vegetarian main, not a great amount of choice.

Ive been to several restaurants since the lockdown lifted but this is by far the best customer service experience I've had. Really professional, well mannered and attentive staff. Alot of restaurants are struggling to train new staff and out of practice since lockdown but could not say this about our experience yesterday.

We have been going to Blue Bar for many years but this time it was disappointing. The portions have been halved (we had the cod and chips) and the famous chicken wings were overcooked. The cocktails were lovely and our server was very good. The ambience is always nice too but the food let the place this down this time.

This is an honest review, table for 5 haven't been to Blue Bar for sometime, birthday celebration for my son, Firstly couldnt find my booking which i made via Open Table, even though i did reconfirm some 24hrs before my sitting of 8pm. Eventually we were found, checked vaccines etc etc, and seated, Nice waitress, all good, but after our starters we were left waiting for condiments / clean utensils etc even though our mains where on the table. Food was out of this world, though part of my wifes meal was stone cold (mushy peas) when this was brought to attention of waitress, the reply was thats the way they come. Ok lets move on,.... Desserts, daughter wanted choc brownie and asked if could have without the almonds, this was checked and told no we dont do it like that, so we declined and as quick as lightening the waitress replied so do you want the bill then, even though we had drinks to finish. The experience of been out again and dining could of been somewhat better,... We did get out bill and left a nice tip too. i recommend Blue Bar, food is great but just some smaller detail needs tweaking.
