Food was good but not great. Service was slow, unorganised. Waited ages for table to be cleared coffee had arrived before this was done. I could see the coffee on the counter 5 mins before it was brought to the table. Very disappointing would not go back.

The service was a bit slow, table wasn’t ready even though we showed up 5 minutes late and took a long time to take our order. But it was worth it for the food, delicious and presented very nicely, would go again

Pretty chaotic. Went during lunchtime from work. Waited for 10 minutes for anyone to come near us after seating. Ordered food and it took 50 minutes to arrive - won't be going back.

Late lunch booking, mid work week, so limited time available. It took 15 minutes for the manager to send a waitress over - most of the tables were empty so not a busy time - and we eventually got our sandwiches half an hour after we arrived. One of our party had to leave 5 minutes later to return to work. The 2 girls waiting the table were very pleasant so no fault there.

Very generous portions, and everything was very tasty. The food is definitely great comfort food, and well-priced as such. The wine-list was small but had some nice choices. The serving staff were just the right sort of attentive, and the outdoor dining space felt peaceful.

Great food, terrible service. Paid no attention to us, couldn’t order more drinks as a result - food took forever. Several tables left due to lack of service, would not recommend

It was a beautiful evening. Very grateful for an outdoor table . My teenage children loved the chicken burger and sweet potato fries . The staff were very pleasant and efficient.

Service was ok , lots of staff huddled around inside talking and not alert to custumers. I had to approach a staff member to order our food, this is not cool when there were many waiting staff and very few customers. Food was ....emmm so so. Vegan Burger itself was fantastic.

I've been a waitress for over 20 years,
Kindest regards,
Fiona

Restaurant is lovely and in a great location. Staff are really friendly but the service was really hit and miss on this occasion. Some food came out cold and had to be replaced. We will be back though.

Just one remark regarding the server taking the payment … she was unsure of what she was doing and as a result my 10 euro tip seems to have become 20 euro

Very bad service. Impossible to feel welcome and comfortable, each waitress were reminding us that we should left our table in 1 hour, then in 45 min, then in 30 min, then in 15min. I was feeling like a number in a production factory. Not even able to have a conversation with my friend as the waitress arrives each 10 min to told us about the table.

Heaters not angled towards tables near window - a little windy- needs plastic wind breaker at the Butlers side of the outside terrace. Service was ok - no personality or warm welcome

Really delicious food (we went for brunch). The waitresses were lovely and helpful (but not wearing masks). Outdoor dining space was perfect, well covered which was ideal as it was raining when we visited. Lovely atmosphere and can’t wait to visit again

Food was grand. Not sure on the vegan fries - served with slices of violife cheese, thought it would have been grated. There is a grated version available that I think would be much nicer with fries. Vegan burger was good. My friend got beef burger which she enjoyed. Pizza oven isn’t ready yet. Overall good!

Our food came out cold and it didn't taste like it was freshly cooked.
Service was quick and the server was nice but upon arrival 2 staff inside weren't wearing masks, the covered outdoor area with heaters is ideal but there's too many better options for dinner around than to return here.

I was bowled over by Cinnamon's outdoor terrace. The seating is very comfortable and they have electric awning that comes down if the weather turns bad. Very clever.
Unfortunately a waiter dropped a whole cocktail glass on our table, for which he apologised profusely, but it wasn't the best start. I was concerned about stray shards. Then my colleague's sandwich order (Coronation chicken wrap) was wrong and then took ages to arrive.
The food itself is delicious. I ordered the Reuben with truffle fries and an Americano. The sandwich was a bit tepid but very tasty and disappeared in minutes, as did the fries.
Overall, Cinnamon Ballsbridge is good value with excellent ambience. It's a great place to escape for an afternoon.

I had the club sandwich which was delicious!..staff were all lovely and when the wind started up one of them switched on the electric awning for the outdoor terrace which was good as it stopped the cold breeze coming through as much!☺️..lovely place with a menu that really has something for everyone!..great place to get some work done also as it is quiet!..would definitely return!☺️

Staff were very nice and friendly but a bit lost I think! The food came out cold and my omelette was not very nice at all (over cooked and cold). I have eaten in cinnamon Ranelagh and Monkstown and had the same meal (omelette) and it has always been delicious.

A very nice pace to sit out and eat and I’m sure once the teething problems have been overcome it will be great.
