The Irish Embassy serves patrons with an authentic pub experience with each and every experience. Order up the fish and chips, and you will feel as if you are right in the middle of Dublin. Couple that with a Guinness and the transformation is complete at the Irish Embassy.

This is a great place to meet after work for a few drinks. In addition to the traditional Irish drinks readily available, the full bar will whip up your favorite cocktail on demand. The famous bangers and mash can be had here as well, so whatever your taste for food might be, you will find plenty of options at Irish Embassy.

From the warm greeting at the FOH; to immediate seating; to patiently waiting for that first Pint;
it was all good.
Great Food and Service and the "Best Pint of Guinness" west of Dublin and the finest selection of
Irish Whiskies.

Limited Menu, but the food is superb.

Slainte !

Very pleasantly surprised. Not normally a "pub food" fan but it was excellent. They were even able to make me my favourite cocktail. Waitress was terrific as well. I will definitely be back!

Service was fast and friendly. The food was very good. But the Irish Embassy did not have that pub feel more like a cafeteria and super loud.

Plus side: We enjoyed our Cobb salad and fish and chips. Service was fast. Cost fair.

Negative side: The dining room was very noisy and tables packed close togather.

Always come here as it has the best Irish Stew ever. And since moving from Ireland three years ago when I want a taste of home I am straight to the Embassy!
Lovely staff, always treat us so well. Great value

Second visit to Irish Embassy to enjoy some food before a concert. Can't wait to go back. The service was fast and friendly (always a bonus when your server has an Irish accent) and the food was DELICIOUS!!

It was finally nice to see The Irish Embassy join the Open Table Community
and I expect will now draw from an even larger group of locals and visitors.
Over the past decade, we have been frequenting this Venue in addition to P.J. O'Brien's (On Colborne Lane) and others in the Quinn Group.

The entire Menu is fairly short and as a result, the food tends to be excellent.
From the Appetizers like, the Smoked Salmon Plate and the Crab & Rock Shrimp Cakes
to the 'Signature Dishes' like, Kilkenny Fish and Chips;
it's all good.

A special thankyou to Allison (Our Server) who certainly went the extra mile to make this visit very
memorable
AND
Was a great way to kick start our Trip to Ireland.

SLAINTE !

Enjoyed lunch at the Irish Embassy. Had a reservation so got a convenient spot away from the door (it was chilly out).
Service was pretty good and we both ordered the kale and goat cheese salad. The salad was good (it was baby kale) and it had a nice crunch with the pecans and the pomegranate arils. I did think the dressing was a tad sweet but overall, a decent and filling salad.

I am not sure what happened and was never given an explanation. Our party of six waited 2.5 hours and ended up with no meals. We kept being told our meals would arrive shortly, the kitchen was just busy. Finally, we had to leave to make it to our show. Unfortunately, we never got any food and we were all starving and ended up eating something at the ACC. Very disappointed. I have experienced a busy kitchen before i get it, but to have no food delivered after that long a wait! They did comp our drink tab which was a nice gesture but I went away very hungry that night. Too bad, the place is cool but, that was a blunder on their part!

Took some time to take our order but the food and drinks were tasty and I’ve been here enough times that it’s always a solid choice for business lunches or drinks after work.

The tables are a little tightly packed, but the service is outstanding. We really enjoyed our Irish comfort food and I was over the moon that they offered my favourite, yet rare “Black velvet” on the drink menu! We will be back
