We had a wonderful dinner at One Pico... The food was excellent and even better than our last visit. The room is very pleasant, both warm and modern. Service was very good. This is definitely one of the top 5/10 best table in Dublin in my view.

Superb meal as always, but better since our last visit.
Andrew, Arnold and the rest of the front of house team run a very smooth operation, whilst Ciaran and the kitchen staff offer superb seasonal food. It has been almost two years since we last attended, and the food has improved in our opinion.
It was one of those 'why has it been so long since we were here' nights, and will definitely be back before Xmas.
Truely enjoyable evening all around.

The lemon soufflé was a Proustian experience taking me back to my grandmother’s lemon desserts. Light, fluffy, hot, and delicious. All I can think about is how to get back to experience it again.

We would frequently eat here and love the food, ambiance and service. However, I would have to mention we were disgusted when we got the bill and found that a coffee is €6.50. Absolute rip off

Lovely treat lunch with faultless service. Portions a bit small though for what we paid but the food was presented beautifully and was delicious! Great for a special occasion. But maybe have a snack before you go..

Super food, lovely, relaxed service and great value for money - we especially loved the Beef Cheek, and the cheeseboard. It's always great to be introduced to a new cheese; in this case the French Tomme Croquant, with a rind washed in walnut liquor, evident in every morsel. The well-priced Godillo Spanish white wine was exceptional.

It was unfortunate. When you are seated for nearly 30 minutes before someone comes to your table to take an order that sets the tone. When our server came by he asked if we were ready to order when we hadn’t even had a chance to order cocktails.

While the pace after was a bit slow it was tolerable, however you can’t get over the sense that you are being ignored. The staff was very nice, but probably came by our table 4 maybe 5 times in total over a 2 ½ hour dinner.

Finally, as vegetarians, normally when a chef modifies a dish to accommodate you, they will change it to keep it interesting. In this case they only removed what we believe were substantial elements to the dish and made no attempt to shift or modify anything.

In total, the food was OK, certainly not exceptional and service left a lot to be desired.

Food was very good & tasty
Service should have been more attentive - had to look around at times for assistance
Interesting that you ask about noise - restaurant was on 25-30% full BUT I had the endure the conversation of two men behind me ..... tables could be separated a little bit more.

We were enchanted by One Pico! The food is innovative, beautifully composed, and flawless. The staff are superbly trained: professional, attentive, but not intrusive. We had an early seating (jet lag) but we never felt hurried during the meal. I have booked fine restaurants through Open Table in Boston, Chicago, and New Orleans in the past year, but One Pico will stand out as the best overall dining experience of the past 12 months.

I booked the table from Germany in advance and everything was perfectly arranged. The dishes and the wine were excellent, the service brillant, the atmosphere and the style were really outstanding. First I went there with a colleague and I returned a day later alone. I would always come back when I am in Dublin.
