I’ve not eaten recently in F&B, always great in the past but disappointing on this occasion. There were 4 of us and we ate off the early bird menu. The fish choice was off- could it not have been substituted? The portions were small and the presence of a beef burger was surprising.
Service was a little slow to start but ok.

Unfortunately food was poor. Cold main course and even when returned the second plate was not much better. Much different experience from our previous visit where the food was excellent.

Service was excellent, and very accomodating for our group pf 6 +5 but our steaks at the table of 6 were not good quality, and not cooked as requested, all seemed to be medium, and very little taste. Very lean for a rib eye? Maybe thats the new trend?

The majority of people at my table agreed "They could do better at home". You may ask why didn't you send them back?
I can only speak for myself, but I was hungry and I spend my entire week dealing with drama at work, so thats on me.

So we won't be back I'm afraid as value for money just wasn't what we'd expected at all. This was a work dinner.

Starters were fine, but nothing exceptional, no wow flavours or taste.
Wine was good, nothing exceptional for the price.

Food was very average, lamb was tough, chicken portion was small and baked Alaska was disappointing. Service was mixed, one lovely helpful server who recommended a new cocktail, but one member of our party was asked 5 times by different servers if she wanted to order a drink (and it felt like we were being harassed) even though she explained that she was not drinking as she was driving. Servers were hovering to whip plates away when the cutlery had barely been placed back on the plate and twice servers tried to take away dishes while the person was still eating and had a spoon/fork in their hand. All in all it was disappointing and not at all relaxing as we felt under pressure the entire time even though we had been told that we could have the table for 2.5 hours.

An excellent 3 course lunch was enjoyed with wonderfully flavoured dishes which were superbly presented, and with a v. good extensive wine list to complement each of the dishes. A highlight of the Dublin trip and will return.

The room is very attractive and sunny at lunchtime. Selection is good, with at least two meat and two fish options and a vegetarian option. Starters and desserts are a bit expensive, but the sides are generous and good value. The wine list is good, with a good selection even if you are ordering a glass. Maybe the wine could be a bit cheaper. Service was polite and attentive, maybe main courses were a bit slow to arrive, but they brought us lovely bread and butter.

Wonderful meal at Fallon and Bryne. One small point--the portion of potato/veg with the hake dinner was miniscule, and my husband needed to order extra sides to be satisfied. Otherwise it was wonderful ambience, excellent service. We will definitely be back.

Outstanding cocktail, delicious wine though incorrect vintage on wine list, burger very poor, starters very good, baked Alaska not actually a baked Alaska and little recognition of our comment about it. Love the place, would choose food more carefully next time though and maybe skip dessert. Very mixed staff....two were excellent, one was OK and two were completely indifferent. Wonderful dining space.

With this restaurant you're always guaranteed a lovely meal in a lovely atmosphere. Staff were superb and extremely helpful answering questions, especially about the cheese. Food was very tasty, had lovely hake for mains. While food prices are reasonable for Dublin City centre the price of wine has shot up, as it has in so many other restaurants, so that quickly adds up on final bill.
