Wine Bar
In the lower depths of Fallon & Byrne lies the romantic, candlelit Wine Cellar, where the shelves are stocked with wickedly quaffable wines from every corner of the globe. We can recommend every last one, to be enjoyed with a light bite or a feast from our all-day food menu including Neapolitan style pizzas and freshly made pastas. And to banish those early week blues, we offer €1 corkage on all retail wines to enjoy in the Cellar every Monday & Tuesday (excluding December)

    Pretty ok. Bathrooms (women) are super awkward and are so small you end up touching things you don't want to touch. Wine selection great but limited menu. Having to pay by credit card in advance of a reservation very annoying. I'd go back but not dying to go back.

    We love fallon and byrne and we always enjoy when we go for lunch. We got married there and also sometimes have dinner upstairs and we always pick up some things in the store. The wine cellar is great but my only criticism is the lack of variety on the menu. It would be great if there was a change every now and then. My wife is vegetarian and has eaten the same dish on the past 3 occasions. This means lunch elsewhere on our next trip to town which I don’t imagine to be f&b’s business model. I reluctantly marked down my review based on the repetition of items.

    We were extremely impressed from the minute we arrived. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. We ordered a mix of cured meats and cheese which complemented our waiters wine recommendation very well. We were made feel very comfortable. We appreciated the fact that the staff paid particular caution to my nut allergy. All in all 10/10, we were completely satisfied.

    We had a lovely evening and the service and quality of the food were great. However, it is very dark. In winter it is fine but in Summer I wouldn't say it's the best option in Dublin.

    Overall good experience but when the waitress was pouring the wine she overpoured the glasses which meant we had to order another bottle. There was only 6 of us at the table so a bottle on wine should do 6 glasses.

    The food and wine were amazing but it was slightly ruined by the service. The place was full and even though we were sat in the middle of the room we felt invisible, after we got our wine and food it took so long for someone to come to our table we just wanted the bill. Understandable that a lot of places are understaffed so will definitely give this place another try.

    A nice option for a light dinner. Had the everything charcuterie board - it was delivered with no explanation - I normally like to get a rundown on the various cheeses etc. The wine selection seemed great and our server made a very good recommendation of a Grenache that was tasty and not too expensive. A nice option to a full sit-down meal.

    Really enjoyable evening with great staff working in the Wine Bar. Nothing was too much trouble. I went with 2 girlfriends and we had a board called The Works -delicious!! And then we had a starter type dish each-perfect size and the food was hot. An excellent selection of wine also Highly recommended and we will be back

    Had a lovely afternoon meal with a friend here Saturday. She had the pizza and I chose the pasta with prawns dish, both were delicious. The deserts we chose were fab and our waitress took it upon herself to pop a candle in my friends desert and got chef to write Happy Birthday on plate. We had just mentioned earlier that it was a milestone birthday for her but I didn't ask the waitress to do anything with desert...it was a lovely touch. She was very attentive without being overbearing and enjoyed a bit of banter too!! I would also recommend the Montepulciano. My friend had eaten in Patrick Guilbalds the weekend of her birthday and didn't have a great experience, she said Fallon & Byrne had a much better atmosphere and much nicer staff...high praise indeed!!!

    Nice food. The waiter was very over eager to the point of being a bit annoying. He wasn’t that busy and it felt that he was just hanging around waiting for something to do. Could have done with a few less interruptions. Just may be a training issue. Overall food was very nice, served super fast upon ordering, ambiance was lovely.

    Took advantage of the 1€ corkage but was sad to see a few of my favourites no longer on the shelves! Some favourites on the food menu: wedges are delicious, pizza & pasta are very good and good value too. The garlic pizza bread was a bit dry and missing something, maybe it could be served with olive oil. Lovely evening at the Wine Cellar overall. Staff are very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great.

    Welcomed by hostess and seated quickly. We were at a high table near the toilets. I found my seat between the kitchen entrance and toilets had a bit of a draft and was a bit noisy so wasn’t ideal for me but overall the other guests were very happy. Food was excellent and recommendations on wine great too. Overall lovely evening
