Very good restaurant for a quiet and important business lunch in Dublin. The food is excellent, light and very well presented. Staff is attentive & extremely professional. Highly recommended if you are looking for a high level fine dining venue that is also cosy and intimate.

Although the service was outstanding, the portion sizes were tiny and grotesquely overpriced.

We were a little surprised how quiet the restaurant room was we arrived for Saturday lunch, but a few more tables were occupied after us giving a nice buzz to the room. We opted for the very reasonable €25 lunch but chose to upgrade and drinks brought up the cost considerably. We were lucky to have a gift voucher, so that certainly took the sting out of the tail. The food was delicious. Only the sweet dessert wasn't remarkable but that may have just been to our taste. Excellent friendly professional service without being stuffy. We would return.

In my opinion One Pico is overpriced and totally lacking in atmosphere. The dining room was less than half full, despite our reservation being for 8.30pm
on a Friday night.

The food quality was excellent but the service was not good. Staff chatting to each other in the lobby rather than attending to patrons - despite the fact that as early diners we were practically alone in the restaurant. The offer of drinks and taking of food orders were very slow.

Had lunch here today for my wife’s birthday which was said in my booking and it would have been nice to be acknowledged. Apart from this, there was a warm welcome to be fair and the service was good to start. Starter came which was reasonable good. We had both ordered a slow cooked beef for mains which came out and looked really tasty...after tasting mine, it was extremely tough but my wife’s was lovely so I sent mine back. The new dish took a long time to come back out and my wife had finished her main course about 10 minutes before my new dish came and as a result, our wine had gone too. They topped up our glass by about a cm but to be honest, I didn’t feel this was enough given we were eating our main course separately!!! Overall, for €180 (had a cheese board and ordered another glass of wine too), it really was mediocre and I would have expected more from this restaurant!!

We were looking for a restaurant in central Dublin near to teh green Luas line, that had an early bird option and would be a dining experience, searching Tripadvisor I identified that One Pico as a potential. We were not disappointed. The entire experience was amazing. The restaurant itself is gorgeous, with a calm relaxed ambiance, but it is still very classy and elegant. The menu was amazing we ate off the pre-theatre menu (simply because everything we liked on the al a carte was on it). The staff were amazing, every detail was seen to, from the crisp white linens (portable iron at the tableside when re-setting) the wine being served and constantly topped up, to the bread selection, to fresh polished cutlery with each course and the crumbs being removed. The food was outstanding, we all agreed the best meal of our weekend in Dublin. One Pico is a treat and a little gem nestled into the centre of Dublin. I would highly recommend and intend to be back!
