One of the starters, sautéed Gambas, came out on a skillet but Luke warm. The waiter poured some wine into a glass to taste and when I said yes it was fine he took the glass, with the wine in it, away to change them to red wine glasses??!! I asked for it back because I was paying for a full bottle but I found it a bizarre way to do it.
Overall it’s a gorgeous place but the food and service is not worth the very expensive bill you get at the end of it.

Fabulous food. Wonderful staff who knew and understood the menu and gave great advice. The menu was very fairly priced considering the location and time of year.
Sensitive renovation that has retained character and ambience of the original building.
This restaurant has become our restaurant of choice in Malahide.
Its was a little bit noisy but there were 2 work groups in for office parties. So would believe its normally quieter.
Floating island desert is amazing.

Super evening. Food & service excellent. Only issue was the noise upstairs but we are coming up to Christmas so we can all expect a bit more volume from diners. For us it just added to the overall fun of the evening. Great atmosphere.

This was my second visit recently to Old Street as I thoroughly enjoyed the first vist and food. However on this occasion the food was not up to par and to be honest portion size for a number of the dishes was quite small.

Our waitress was very accomadating and the service cannot be faulted.

It was highly annoying to find out on the evening after the meal that Kids eat free when they are with adults on a Sunday but yet I had been charged for 3 childrens meals and deserts and had paid this bill not being aware of this offer. It is concerning that controls are not in place to ensure that this does not occur on a Sunday as it added approx €30.00 to the bill which was for 8 people in total.

The restaurant was simply too busy. There were no red wine glasses available which was a first. The food was very good except for the calamari which was more breadcrumb than fish and the portion was too small in my opinion. The duck main course was superb and the mussels and risotto were really good too. Our server made the comment the restaurant was too busy and the service was suffering. We’ve always had a great experience before and we will be back but during busy periods such as Christmas it must be managed better.

Unfortunately the service was very slow despite all tables not being full but there was a large party downstairs - Upstairs was quite noisy and very difficult for waiters to hear orders and also for our party of four to hear each other at the table .

We ordered 4 starters and shared them they were all amazing.

Martin and I shared the steak meal for 2 and the girls both ordered the duck. Everyone was very happy the food was delicious and the service was first class. We'll be back.

Thanks

Had dinner with family here recently. Then returned a second time with a friend. Absolutely Fabulous food and wine both nights and really good value. Restaurant has beautiful decor, welcoming front desk and friendly warm staff. The restaurant was buzzing both nights but service was top class. Can’t wait to return.

Good service from friendly staff. My starter of pumpkin soup was just about saved by the presence of pumpkin seeds. Couldn't quite identify what the flavour was, but it bordered on unpleasant. The main of goat cheese and onion tart was good. As a vegetarian the choice was limited, for mains basically the option was the tart or a risotto. At this point my heart sinks when I see them yet again on the menu. My friend fared better with her chicken salad and burger. We skipped deserts. A pleasant experience apart from the fact that we were seated beside shelves which housed cutlery, napkins etc. Even on a quiet evening there was a constant stream of traffic beside our table. To be fair we were offered a couple of options when we arrived, however a table for four with all that elbow room was too tempting to turn down. Myself and my pal later regretted our choice but were too settled to move. It's a nice venue, good staff who I could see where doing their best not to disturb us, but do avoid the table beside the shelf.

Excellent place, it was my first time there and I am a big fan of restaurants so I was delighted to experience dining in this very cosy looking place. I must say the food was delicious and service second to none . We were welcomed and hosted by Matthew who went out of his way to make sure all 5 of us were well looked after. I will be definately back. Well done guys! Thank you for 5* service.

Beef ordered medium x 2 - and medium well x 2
2 were overdone and 2 were rare and were given to the wrong persons
Apart from that the food and portion sizes were very good

Bit expensive for Sunday lunch in my opinion we only had one glass of wine as all were driving
We eat out quite a lot - fine dining - and casually and this was on the high Side for what we got
But we’ve been lots of times before and will go again and would recommend it

Have been to old street a few times and not been overly impressed with the food or price. However there seems to have been a change in the menu and our entire party was very pleased. Staff were also really friendly which was a big improvement to how we found it when it first opened.we will be back!

The food, the atmosphere and the service were great. I thought a €10 supplement for the steak was a bit steep but it was beautifully cooked and we enjoyed the food very much.

I have been to old street maybe 5 times in the last year and the food never ever disappoints. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The wine and cocktails are divine and served at the perfect temperature. Our coeliacs at the table are always very well catered for and the staff are knowledgeable and forthcoming with information regarding cross contamination and ingredients in food. Can’t fault it!

Overall, a very pleasant dining experience. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Service was ok, but not perfect. Could have been more attentive, and we were left waiting a long time for drinks and for desert menus.
