Steak
Marco Pierre White’s idea of simple is old school: elegant dishes prepared using the finest ingredients by chefs trained in London by Marco himself. The deceptively simple menu demands every dish earn its place: the choicest cuts of meat, freshest fish, classic sauces. The vibe? Grown up, relaxed, playful. The setting? An opulent room you’ll feel at home in, only better!

    Lunch was just perfect and the service was excellent. It was not too busy therefore we had a very enjoyable lunch in a peaceful comfortable setting. Our lunch was to celebrate a graduation and the waiter kindly brought out a congratulations dessert at the end of the meal. This was very thoughtful of the staff. Thank you. Delicious food. Good quality. Good value. Would highly recommend.

    Don’t see the point in sitting stable of three beside us when Resturant was empty, the volume from the table ruined our lunch. There was only eight diners including us . I do not as a rule do surveys but my lunch was not a great experience.

    Overall: Unhappy Dinner Experience Background: It's my first night in Dublin for this time. I stayed in the Shelbourne, I was starving and tried to find a fine-dining restaurant to have some food around 19:00. Then I found MPWS which is close and seems lovely. I arrived before 19:30 which was my reservation time. Here is some experience I had for your reference. 1, There was Sunday night, but it was not busy at all, only 60-70% tables were occupied. But I think there are not enough waiters/waitresses to take care of the customers. 2, Slow Service: After I got my table, it took about 15 minutes for the waiter to come to order for me. I am just sitting there with the sparkling water I ordered, bored and starving. I didn't get any food until over 20:00. 3, The oysters were served without sauce and lemon, which is fine in a small bistro but it's quite weird for a fancy restaurant to serve like this. 4, The waiter happened to drop the knife with scallops sauce on my nylon tote bag. I put my bag on the chair in front of me. No people were sitting around my table and there was enough space. The stain on the nylon tote bag would be very dramatic under the daylight. It's a Bottega Veneta, not crazy pricey but not cheap. The waiter tried to help with a hot towel and cleaner, but it didn't work. He wanted to pay for the cleaning fee himself but I didn't want to be very difficult. 5, As a local famous steakhouse, the 42eu high-quality ribeye I ordered was not that tasty. The quality of the meat was very ordinary. And it's slightly overcooked since I ordered it in medium rare. 6, Before I left, I told two waiters that I was not happy with the dinner and you had to improve your service and the quality of the food. But I feel like they don't really care and have no make-up solution at all which is very rare in these kinds of restaurants. If the manager or the owner happens to see this note, please make some changes to your restaurant.

    Food was lovely but steak luke warm. Was really looking forward to our meal but the service was disappointing. The waitress had no interest in us it felt robotic and main course came out at different times steaks first , waited a while for chips and then had to wait again for vegetables. There were only 2 of us ! For the prices I would have expected better. Nobody came near us til the end when manager arrived. 2 staff sat at a table folding napkins could have been better used serving customers there at the time ! We wont be in a hurry back.

    My husband’s review: Yesterday had dinner there with my wife and brother for my birthday, the scallop starter for 18euro was terrible, sealed on one side only the white bean garnish was very old and no seasoning.. my brothers Beetroot an goat cheese starter was mediocre at best.. tiny very under seasoned portion.. no where near worth the value of 16 euro... shameful.. For dinner my wife risotto was mushy very overcooked.. braised leeks had no flavour was definitely cooked in water and not stock.. 32euro ridiculous.. my sirloin cost 39 euro and they poured jus on top of it the hide the gray colour on outside when I asked for peppersauce on side an not a jus.. I didn't get that.. my brothers steak fritz cost him 35euro for 7oz rump n chips.. ceaser salad side was mixed in mayo with anchovy pieces on top with Parmesan very lazy .. not a ceaser dressing.. not good.. to finish creme brule my god the amount of sugar on top was like breaking real glass.. way too much sugar bruled was mediocre.. Marco pierr white is my favourite chef but unfortunately none of his teachings or experience has educated any chefs that work in this restaurant.. honestly anyone who had any involvement with my scallop starter definitely never ate a scallop before.. was cooked in oil not finished in butter an no salt pepper was literally the worst scallop dish I've ever had in my life... I'm a chef 11 years in Dublin worked everywhere.. I love food an that was not worth the crazy price they charge.. sorry to the king Marco it was not worth the money at all we went home an ordered Chinese..

    I was so disappointed with this Restaurant. We waited 45 mins to order our food. The waitress was rude and not accommodating at all. A few chips came with the steak and whe. I said it wasn’t medium she argued back saying It was and the temperature was right .. I will Not return here .

    We recently returned for my partner's birthday, hoping to recreate the fantastic experience we had on our previous visit (which earned a solid 9 out of 10!). Unfortunately, this time around, the experience fell significantly short of expectations. We ordered the ribeye and centre-cut steaks, both cooked medium. While the steaks themselves were average at best, the biggest disappointment was the "surf" in our surf and turf. The prawns were mushy and bland, tasting like they had been sitting for a long time. This was particularly concerning, given the restaurant's supposed high-end positioning. To add to the issues, the side dishes arrived a full 5 minutes after the steaks, leaving us waiting with cooling food. This, combined with the lack of attention compared to our previous visit, suggested a significant drop in service quality. Notably, the overall ambiance, which we previously enjoyed, also seemed less vibrant. The biggest letdown was the abrupt "no" when we inquired about the signature Cashel blue cheese steak sauce we remembered from our prior visit. Considering the high prices, the experience was a stark contrast to our initial impression. Unfortunately, due to the disappointing food and service, we won't be returning to anytime soon!!

    Expensive but well worth it. We had starters, mains and desert and every single dish was beyond delicious. We wanted a special meal and we certainly got it. The staff are attentive without being in your way and they had no problem giving us good gf options. Would highly recommend and hope to go back again.

    I've eaten many steaks, I think it was my favourite steak I have ever had. Great quality food and very reasonable price. The staff were so nice and attentive to us. I also asked during the booking if they could do a little something for celebrating a birthday and they nailed it! I am 100% coming back to this restaurant to try more of the menu and also get another few steaks in. I'm still shocked at how good that steak was. It was cooked to perfection, it was like cutting through butter. I think if I wasn't on a date, I would have ordered another steak for myself, delicious!!! Staff were very helpful and kind. The lighting in the place was nice and relaxing, it made the steak more enjoyable. 5 stars all around, I find it hard to find any negatives. Great experience!! Thank you!
