Fade Street never fails to deliver a lovely meal. The staff was particularly great, especially considering it was the last meal before the lockdown. You wouldn’t know that their lives were about to become some unsettled. Testament to the fact that they are a team!

Food was good. Seemed understaffed maybe as service for drinks and bill took ages. Nice to be back out and about.

One of the worst culinary experiences.
Christmas set menu was overpriced. The food was mediocre bordering on strange, my pork belly was barely warm. The sirloin steak was grizzly and cold. The hummus starter smelled like vinegar and was inedible.
The waiting staff questioned our preferences when we voiced our concerns and tried to charge €3.80 for two cubes of focaccia bread when we handed back the hummus starter.
€340 for 5 people 2-course set menu, one drink each. One glass of wine and the replacement focaccia bread was taken off the bill as a peace offering.
Have had enjoyable experiences here in the past at the tapas and cocktails part but will be slow to recommend or return.
Not to mention a horrible draft coming from the windows...don’t usually write poor reviews as someone who works in hospitality but this was an exception due to the price point.

Was there as part of pre Christmas celebrations. Only ordered mains , waited an hour for food which was awful. Ordered steak and asked for medium rare and it was overcooked, pre- sliced & swimming in awful gravy . Others ordered vegetarian option and it was over cooked also . After 45 minutes spoke to waiter about delay - he was rude and made lame excuses for delay -‘said that they were ‘platting up’ it was another 15 minutes before the food came. Couldn’t believe how bad it was . Was asked eventually by a different waiter ‘ how was everything’. Expressed our dissatisfaction with the service & the food . Apologies extended & In the end we were only charged for the wine we had. Also had to say that there was no ambience in the place & was shocked to see Dylan McGrath walking through restaurant without a face mask . Not a good example in these COVID 19 times. Have been to the restaurant years ago and can only say that it has certainly faded and not vey social! Will definitely not be returning .

Has been better in the past...
The steaks and all the food was simply fantastic in the past. This time it felt a lot weaker with less motivation by the kitchen. Food was not warm and not very well seasoned - kind of boring.
Coffees came to the table cold.

Despite empty restaurant no willingness to accommodate a change in reservation time.

Waiter was not very helpful. I was sitting at the end of the table so I could be social distance from my colleagues. He asked me to move to the side because I was too close to the nearby table although I had my back to them and the move meant I was approx 10cms further away from the nearby table.

Everything about our experience in Fade Street on Saturday was just amazing, we are still dreaming of the meal and the fabulous Margaux wine that complimented the steak . Every side order, every starter tasted delicious (there were 4 of us so we opted for one of everything on the menu!). We are so looking forward to our next visit there, can not come quick enough. Thoroughly recommend !!!

Food was ok - there wasn’t a large choice. I had the beef rump and it was a bit tough but the jus was gorgeous. I thought it was expensive for what we got. Including tip it was €400 for 4.
We arranged a taxi for 2hrs from start but we hadn’t gotten dessert by that stage and left without it !

Great food and service. They were very accommodating to a member of our group who has food allergies. The only thing that disappointed me was that our friend with the food allergies was charged a lot for her meal in comparison to the rest of us.

I’ve eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed it. On this occasion it was quite disappointing; the waiter was curt, our main courses (Christmas lunch menu) were the size of a small tapa and certainly didn’t represent value for money.

Some members of the staff are quite rude and the food is so over priced! You'll pay €15 for 3 potatoes and 2 broccoli. It's a nice place to get a drink but not for food
