Lovely evening. Well spaced but good atmosphere and ambience. Service staff were really helpful and patient with our questions. We did not do the standard menu we have done previously. Gave great advice. Wine was delicious. First one in mineral section! We will be back.

Delicious food as always . We were eating late so didn’t have enormous quantities. Wonderful gnocchi with a black pepper butter.Very good grilled black sole to share which stood up to sides of cauliflower oven chipped potatoes and radicchio salad. Lovely friendly service and great bottle of rioja which came by glass also. We are fans and a bit biased . Didn’t love music on Friday night. We are at older end of customer spectrum so maybe just that.

Really disappointing service.
We were advised to go for the chef's menu which we did but were sent away without dessert.
Had heard such good things but was very let down - it was a special occasion too so particularly upsetting unfortunately.

Probably the best food I've had in Dublin in years! The chefs menu is genius giving a taste of almost everything. Every dish was divine full of fabulous flavours. The wine was the perfect match for our mains. Only issue is trying too book in again 😂 seems to be booked out for forever we actually tried to book again whilst waiting for our dessert!

Great to have Host back in restuarant format (though the cook-at-home option was great too). Best of luck to Sean and the gang in keeping things going and helping us all make a further step back towards normality.

Host never fails to amaze me. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is excellent. At the moment the team are doing everything to follow the COVID guidelines and I felt completely safe throughout my time there.

Thank you to Neil and the team for making my birthday dinner extra special.
