Experience our fabulous outdoor space for lunch. Rain or sunshine the Garden has a cosy and heated atmosphere in any case and can be requested, subject to availability.

The bright and airy first floor dining room is a really comfortable space to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner and a glass or two of fine wine. We use locally sourced, seasonal produce where possible combined with the very best Italian ingredients to create a menu that is modern and unique. We consider ourselves a contemporary Irish restaurant with an Italian influence.

                                                        Loved our first trip to Drury Buildings! The outdoor section is gorgeous, the cocktails were unreal, our server recommended the Dill Gin cocktail which was fab, and then the Dark Knight which was even more fitting to my tastes. Really appreciated their attention to detail and knowledge of the menu. Never got their name, but the cargo pants and mullet were a savage vibe. Will definitely be back very soon!

                                                        Food was all delish, would def go back Ambience was only lacking due to it being a Tuesday at lunchtime! Lovely staff, especially considering the times they are having to work through! Good number of hand sanitisers too :)

                                                        We ate at 3pm upstairs so the place wasn't quite full. Service was good and we ordered 2 tapas size portions each with one additional chicken wings. Everything was tasty and reasonably priced. Would go back again

                                                        Had a lovely afternoon with friends. Covid wasn't an issue - well spaced out. Music was a little loud. However, the cola you serve is woeful. A rum & coke is only good with Coca-cola and not that other stuff, that taste slike soda stream. Otherwise - fine venue - lovely staff - great food.

                                                        Nice staff, possibly too small a portion for some of the courses, we could have ordered another few extras as we were still hungry, nevertheless a nice evening in happy surroundings. Music was great and our fellow diners mellow. Wine by the glass was delicious too.

                                                        We went out for our Christmas night out to drury buildings. We have been a few times and always love the food,drink, ambience, venue. However the staff were quiet rude and dismissive. Would of been perfect if the staff had been nice.

                                                        I went I. For some lunch. I am gluten free but the waitress did not explain to me that most of the dishes were adaptable until after I’d eaten and told her there were not many options for gluten free and ice cream was the only dessert option. On a cold day in December I would have like something else to chose from besides the ice cream. Also the fires were soggy and not at all what I expected I have eaten here before so was disappointed this time around. They also sat me in a quiet part of the restaurant which was weird as I was the second person in the door. Don’t know why I couldn’t have been in the garden area.

                                                        It was two Sundays before Christmas and we picked out 5 dishes between myself and my partner. When ordering the waitress said 4 of these 5 were not in stock. I feel this should of been said when we were seated and before we had opened our wine so we could of had the option to dine elsewhere. I just find it bizzare that this can occur on potentially one of the industries busiest weekends of the year? I would say what we ordered was lovely but overshadowed by the above.

                                                        It was nice but I asked how the steak was served + was told medium rare to rare (which is how I like my steak). What we got was very well done and impossible to chew through. The pork belly was also inedible. The ribs + wings were delicious so maybe it was just that we were unlucky.

                                                        Food was delicious, cannot fault it. However the drinks menu was a letdown. My usual fav Pornstar Martini did not taste as it should which resulted in 2 out of 3 drinks not been able to drink, way too citric for a Peach based cocktail. Left and went to another cocktail bar. Exp start to the night.

                                                        Food was good. We were in the yard. The tables were too low for the bench so we had to move the tables so only use the regular chairs provide. Service was good but they charged a dish we didn’t order. There were a table near us which people were doing so much noise with no consideration to the others. I like Drury buildings but these things can be improved

                                                        Service was mediocre, as was the food. Made worse as there was more staff than diners.

                                                        Firstly the food was nice but it’s really not a great brunch menu. I also needed to make a change to the reservation and couldn’t get through at all between 11.30 and 12. I just kept getting cut off. I arrived at a couple of mins to 12 for my 12 reservation and found it doesn’t open until 12 on the button. So there were a bunch of people standing outside in the freezing cold waiting until the doors opened at 12. It might br a good idea to open a few minutes in advance for the first bookings to avoid this. Also, given that the restaurant wasn’t open and there were plenty of staff inside I’m not sure why nobody could answer the telephone. Just a bit frustrating really.
