Located a hop, skip and a jump from Grafton Street, there’s a simple idea behind Fallon & Byrne and it’s this: we believe in wonderful food, fine wine and great company. Spread over four floors in a stunning heritage building, Fallon & Byrne is Dublin’s award-winning foodie mecca and THE place to consummate your love of all things delicious. The elegant brasserie-style Restaurant is housed upstairs where light streams through tall windows into one of the city’s most handsome rooms, that also features a stylish cocktail bar. Serving modern Irish bistro-style fare in a buzzy & relaxed setting, our rib-eye steak & frites and Knickerbocker Glory are particularly renowned. For a pre or post-dinner drink, pay a visit the beautiful Wine Cellar and be sure to make time to look around our famous gourmet Food Hall on the ground floor.

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.

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!

Christmas menu was €39 whereas their set lunch menu is usually around €25. The same menu. Food was very nice. Overpriced wine and very annoying that they keep filling up your glass. We were overcharged for one meal and then charged 12.5% service charge even though there were only 5 of us. Dessert menu was only for certain choices with the set menu but we were only told this when we had all chosen what we wanted. Would not return

Food was OK, service a mix of curt and very friendly as we had several staff attend to us. The big downside of this place is that it is a very large and bare room, with tightly packed tables resulting in the noise levels being extremely loud. It was very hard to relax and enjoy the food.

It had been a few years since I last ate here and was looking forward to the return. We were met by extremely friendly and courteous staff who were also discreet. I was pleasantly surprised at the wine prices for some really decent wine. So many restaurants now have sky high prices. We were three and I had the pork rillettes which were beautiful. The accompanying sauce and mushroom medley were perfect. The others shared a plate of oysters with no complaints. For mains we chose the lamb shoulder (sublime) trout and rib eye cooked exactly as requested. We passed on deserts. Overall it was excellent with the exception of the acoustics. It's hard to hear yourself think at times and does seem to be a recurring complaint. I just wonder if the management have looked into this issue. However, I will be back.

Everything was top class. Our party really enjoyed the night. The food, wine list, cocktail menu and Gin list was amazing. The service was welcoming, warm, friendly and genuine. Our only critisim was that phone lights were needed to see the menu as lighting was a little on the dark side and noise level was on the loud side, made it a little difficult to have normal level of conversation but these were minor things and didnt spoil our evening. Still worthy of 5 stars. We will be back

Had a lovely time here. Staff were great. We ordered from the vegan menu and the mains were lovely. Deserts weren’t great, the crumble could have had actual crumble on top instead of just oats and the kinder dessert cake didn’t taste like much at all but the coffee sorbet was amazing so a proper piece of chocolate cake or brownie with it would be amazing.

Good price. Average food. Lamb shoulder special was dry. Average service. Could have sold more than one round of drinks if they came back to check on the table. That being said, would go again if looking for a safe place to make a last minute reservation and nothing else was available.
