The cooking is superb. The staff are friendly and enthusiastic. For a haut cuisine meal it is the best value in Dublin and probably in the top two for cooking

This is a wonderful restaurant. The chef Andy McFadden, is passionate about his food and it shows. The service is impeccable but it is the food on your plate that sings. It’s an experience not to be missed.

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.

Amazing! Couldn't fault the place. If you are looking for something special and a real treat go there. You will not be disappointed. However, if you don't like spending your money on good quality food, service and experience it's not the place for you. But for me it was a real treat and I will definitely be going back!

Had eaten in Glovers back in Jan 2019 at a work dinner and thought it was the best food I'd had in Dublin back then. Brought the wife there on Saturday and had built up expectations. Dinner met every expectation. Food was exceptional (a la carte) and sommellier was very helpful with wine selection. Lay out is good with the conversion of the private dining room. Distancing not that apparent though buzz was a little lighter than you'd expect but i guess that is the new normal. Every staff member we encountered was incredibly helpful and friendly. No sense we were being pushed on after dinner either. They are managing their guests and bookings well. I would strongly recommend Glover's whilst letting people know that you pay for the pleasure but it is worth it.

From the moment we arrived, the warm greeting and courtesy were there. Nothing was too much trouble. Sommelier easily dealt with allergy queries and found a perfect wine.
Delicious food, great ambience. Loved the decor. Felt relaxed and not overwhelmed by the staff or the setting. You can have fun there too.

Would recommend for a celebration, special night or just a good night out.
