                                          All the staff and ambience of Charlotte Quay is lovely, very impressive. The restaurant's deco and its setting are beautiful and we liked it very much. Also it's located quite close to the dart station which is very handy as well. However, the food wasn't very impressive which was a bit disappointing. Foie Gras pate was way too rich (but one of the staff saw I was struggling with it and gave me an extra bread right away which I thought was very nice of her). and main was a little too salty... So overall, we were not impressed by the food so much but were impressed by the staff there. They are all very nice.

                                          Location and views were amazing! Staff were friendly. Atmosphere was great also good quality food. The duck was delicious, but the portion size was so tiny for the price, there was just two pieces of duck and the sauce with nothing else, definitely needed sides but it was already nearly €30.

                                          Wonderful staff, wonderful food, wonderful ambiance and location! The staff in particular could not have been more accomodariing....it was a birthday celebration and they made it very special, offering to take photos ((even suggesting outside shots!) They did not rush us from our table and when they did finally need our table graciously suggested they bring our drinks into the bar and seated us there! They even brought us some complimentarily roasties to snack on in the bar! Great music selection too! We had a wonderful time.... can't recommend it enough ☺️

                                          We had to wait a while to sit at the table and tell our order. The menu could have been written with a bit more clarity and simplicity. However, the food and ambience were great.

                                          Staff were lovely but we hit at peak traffic time and then struggled a bit. All staff were very nice though and no reflection on them! Food was good but they forgot a side. Not the end of the world.

                                          Very disappointing visit. If you're attending before a show, give over two hours. From being seated to our single course being served was 50 mins. Wait staff was friendly and did their best, but kitchen was exceptionally slow and when the food arrived it was beyond disappointing for the price. I don't mind waiting for good food, and don't mind average food being super fast, but this was an all round terrible experience. We were left rushing to get to the show with just a single course, no time for dessert or a second drink and made the show with 5 minutes to spare. Truth be told, if the food took 5 minutes longer we would have left with just drinks.

                                          Brilliant location for an early dinner before a show and lovely views. Food was good but a bit overpriced. Table booked for 3.15, felt rushed into placing our order as the kitchen was closing prior to dinner service. Once our food order was placed it took ages for the hostess to come back to take our drinks order. The hostess was also a bit rude when we asked for the door to the outside dining to be closed. She seemed to be under pressure but there was no need for the bad attitude.

                                          Superb service, friendly and efficient. Food was good and excellent recommendations for wines from the waiter. However, the level of the background music was intolerable, hard to haves conversation above it. When I asked for a lowering on the level, it was done, but then soon after it went up to full volume.

                                          Second time was even better than the first time. The food and service were both spot on.

                                          For the main course I got the hake which was absolutely delicious. One of the best meals I have had. The staff were very friendly but it took an awful long time for the meal to arrive. We were due to see a show at the Bord Gais theatre nearby so felt we had to rush to finish our meal. It would be good if they had given us the early bird menu at the start instead of just the al a carte because I hadn't realised there even was an early bird menu. For desert I ordered the brown butter and hazelnut cake which was quite tasty but dry so not nearly as impressive as the main course. I would come back because I enjoyed the main course so much but I think maybe they need more staff as they seemed to struggle with it being only moderately busy.

                                          When I book a table at 5pm i don't expect to be asked three times if I want to order food (i felt forced to order). If i book a table during lunchtime or from 7pm onwards, yes, bring me the food menu.

                                          The food was overpriced and some of the staff was extremely rude. Apparently the waiter was unable to split the bill in two, as it is “too much maths”. We apologize for any inconvenience caused for spending our money there, I guess?

                                          Outdoor dining is not really outdoor as it is completely enclosed so we were not very comfortable. Noise level was quite high.
