    Absolute amazing! Our server (sorry I can’t remember her name) was sooo attentive and really really lovely! That food was brilliant, and the restaurant was stunning! unfortunately we had a flight to catch so no alcohol for us but the cocktails looked amazing. I’ll definitely be back here next time I’m in Dublin!

    Food was good but service needed improvement. We were seated at 7 and had our water glasses filled immediately but then never saw a soul for 40 minutes. When we were finally able to flag down our server she seemed confused and could not answer questions about the menu and did not ask anyone else. She took our drink and app orders and we said we wanted to order dinner after we got our drinks. Again she looked confused and took our menus and walked away. Our apps came out quickly in fact way before our drinks. We finally got to order dinner. Food was good but would not recommend due to service and overall price.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the food, but I'm sorry that the service did not meet your expectations or our standards. Waiting 40 minutes without interaction after being seated and being confused about the menu by our staff is not acceptable and I understand how it can detract from the overall dining experience. We take your feedback seriously and will address these service issues directly with our team to ensure better communication and speed. We hope you'll give us another chance to show you the level of service we strive for and that your next experience with us will be much improved. Thank you again for your feedback - it is vital in helping us to improve.
