Fallon & Byrne - Exchequer Street Restaurant
Excellent food and service. Lively ambience. Highly recommend.
Went to Falon & Byrne on Saturday feb 22. Food was amazing. Wine was fab. The service was excellent. I thought it was a little loud as the ceilings are very high but we were seated at a table for 2 and were able to chat to each other. Will definitely go back.
Excellent food, but service was poor. ... waiting staff did not work as a team and we had to ask for water to be topped up and for oyster shells to be cleared from side plates. This may seem picky, but we were expecting a higher level of service.
Cold atmosphere (we were there early, so hopefully it warmed up later) with a draughty window.
Very low lighting made it difficult to see the food.
I have eaten in Fallon & Byrne a few times and have high expectations based on this. However the recent experience was average at best. While I expected a reduced menu for the pre-Theatre menu the choice was underwhelming and while there was nothing wrong with the food delivered it didn't live up to expectations. There was also a feeling that the staff wanted us gone as fast as possible.
Based on this experience I wouldn't recommend the pre-theatre option to others and am in no rush back for non pre-theatre
The food and wines were of a very high standard we will be back for definite as the food was fantastic. However there were a lot of servers circulating through the place and none of them were really checking in with the tables only to take plates. When the food was brought down and taken away we weren’t asked would we like anything else and it was very hard to get a servers attention. At the very end we spent over 20 minutes trying to get a servers attention for the bill. It seems like the waiters don’t have sections so it was a bit helter skelter. It doesn’t bother us having multiple servers but the quality of the service was not great and every server we had (approx 6 different ones) were highly impersonable. Overall the food will have us coming back.
Never rushed, good food, plenty of table space- good atmosphere
Very nice place. Food was very good, service was superior to anywhere else, totally on top of it.
Will be back
Really Special Night Lovely Food and Staff !! Came over from England to try, wpuld definitely recommend!!!
Everything was great, fast friendly service, great food and nice lighting with the correct amount of noise. comfortable seating. Recommend 100%.
the food was very boring and the music wasnt great. service was quite slow too
Wonderful scalops, the best I have ever eaten and the hake was delicious too. Very nice and friendly waitresses! Highly recommend!
We went for all three courses of the pre theatre menu. It’s was delicious with a good selection of dishes. Service was attentive with pleasant staff. Tastefully decorated with a good buzz about the restaurant, and great value for money.
Pleasant staff with very good attention to details. Suited our group as we were under no pressure to vacate the table. We like the freedom to relax so we can enjoy our conversations.
It was excellent, but too dark. Best vegan dinner I’ve ever had.
Very tough and barely edible ribeye. Vegetables satisfactory. You need to find a new butcher
Really nice experience again
Great service, well looked after. Food was ... good, nothing remarkable.
Unfortunately my rib eye steak was sinewy and tough to cut and chew and was over cooked. However I was offered a replacement and they took the price of it off the bill. My starter of scallops and my partners starter and belly pork were excellent. We also enjoyed our puddings and as it was my partner's birthday they sweetly decorated a plate with a chocolate icing greeting and a candle. The wine we chose was also excellent. Service was exemplary. Just a shame about the steak.
Great spot for some nice comfort food-only thing I can think of to fault them on is a new pre-theatre menu would be nice and will someone please put the hake on it!

White wine was room temperature, eventually gave ice bucket. 3 asks to get some ice cubes. 4 asks for some listed gluten free bread. Red wine then warmer than room, so got a second use from ice bucket. Overall food was high standard. Service slow overall with longer than normal delays between courses.

The higher priced (assuming quality) wine was very poor. The burger was very dry. And the staff were good, generally attentive, but not very personable. Which is all OK in a way. But I’m not so inspired to return.

Loved the good and service was spot on. Only issue was the noise level. Just the two of us at the table but the overall noise level in the room made it difficult to hear on occasion.

Hi there, Thank you for reviewing the restaurant, we are delighted you enjoyed your meal with us, we hope you visit again sometime soon!
Whilst the service was excellent on the night we were there, the food was disappointing and not worth the prices charged. The €30 rib eye steaks were tough and grizzly even when cooked medium rare. The starters were mediocre and lacked flavour. Much better options at these prices elsewhere around Dublin.

Everything we ate here was delicious. The vegetarian options were few in number but really high quality—the entree, a sweet potato & lentil Wellington, was very filling and a far cry from the unsatisfying Thai curries or stews of random vegetables that count as a main course at so many area restaurants. One of the best meals we’ve had in Dublin!
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review for us. We are delighted you enjoyed our vegetarian options and we look forward to the next time you visit!
We got married here in December last year and came back a year later on the same day for lunch. We had a great experience and a glass of Prosecco on the house. The food was amazing too. Would highly recommend Fallon & Byrne to everyone.
