Glover's Alley really lived up to my expectations for amazing food as we choose it for a special occasion a family birthday. The restaurant was much emptier than normal but the staff were so attentive and we were looked after extremely well. The food is a real highlight and we will definitely re-visit again. I would highly recommend it!

Glovers Alley is such a cool place to go to eat. Plenty of space, all bright and warm, the most helpful staff you could ask for and the food is absolutely top notch! Always surprises, always great creativity, always pack full of flavour.
The food range is very varied and full of wow moments; the wine list is truly exceptional.
The atmosphere is relaxed, easy and very attentive. It is our favourite place in Dublin for my wife and I to give each other a special treat and our choice when meeting friends for a touch of class.
While dinner comes at a price, lunch as a special occasion is very reasonable.
Well done, none better!
Michael

Really enjoyed our experience at Glover's Alley. Its more than food, it's an experience. We had the 4 course surprise menu and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant was quiet on the night we went so we had a very personalised service which made it all the more special. Would highly recommend for a treat.

The food was amazing, but very small portions, so after getting four courses and spending 120 euro I was left hungry. Staff were lovely, and very professional.

Dear Laura, Naturally, I am disappointed to read the below comments in regards to your Dining Experience here with us on Saturday. I don’t believe that your overall score of 1 star reflects how the entire evening was for you or your guests. Our 4 Course Pre-Theatre Tasting Menu is priced at €65, which is very reasonable for the quality of food offered. Should you wish to discuss your feedback further please contact me directly via info@gloversalley.ie. Yours Sincerely, Dylan Leon.
