I recently had a dinner outside with my friends. The service was amazing. We had an amazing waitress that recommended all our dishes (we went off what she recommended) food was gorgeous, portion sizes were perfect, would totally recommend!
(Especially the ragu)

In general terms it was very good, food and wine list outsanding, service also very good, the only dowside is that we asked for espresso martini and they do not cocktails, I will just suggest to add 2 or 3, may be just the most common ones

Love this restaurant! The prawns pil pil are a must as is the Cote du Boeuf. Their wine list is also great. The staff are fantastic and so friendly. They have outdoor seating and a few heaters and are completely following the guidelines for the COVID19 restrictions.

We spent a nice evening at the Piglet wine bar. We got a very nice charcuterie and cheese board for sharing, accompanying it with a really nice organic Minervois Grenache wine.
Service was good really good also.

We had a fantastic time - a table outside, beautiful, superbly tasty food, lovely engaged service which included recommendations for wines by the glass to have with each dish. And the wine! We put ourselves completely in the hands of the staff, who provided gorgeous wines to match the dishes we chose. The portions are very generous, the ingredients top quality. Will go back!

We shared a mixture of the starters, 2 lots of Deviled eggs, pork croquettes and duck gizzards. They were all very nice but the duck gizzards and soldiers stole the show. For mains we had a meat/cheese board, Cote de Boeuf, Monk fish and Ragu. They were all beautifully presented and full of flavour. We had some lovely wine and dessert wine also. The waiters were very nice and friendly. They gave us a drink on the house before we left which was a lovely gesture.

Nice dining experience at Piglet. In city for haircut in the area, decided to have a light meal out. Very friendly staff, service prompt and food tasty. Nice selection of wine too. We had the cheese and meat board. Lovely selection of meat and cheeses, olives, grapes and chutney it was served and waiter explained selection. GF bread available which was a bonus. Masks worn by staff and areas well cleaned down between diners.

Lovely food and wine. Helpful staff. Appreciated our feeling we’d prefer to be outside at this time. A bit pricey maybe but I’m not used to Dublin prices! A perfect way to celebrate with friends and have our first meal out in four months.

Beautiful food and wine. Cosy, welcoming place and service. They went the extra mile by realising we are sharing every plate although we didn't say. Plates were served accordingly and in perfect order to build our palate. They serve Tokaji wine which is a rare plus! Thank you, we will be back! Best Regards, Annamaria

Cheese board and wine was very good, piri piri prawns were a massive letdown, only got two prawns and it wasn’t good value at €14.50, wine was very good.

We had a very pleasant experience having a meal at Piglet. Although we thought we had booked a table we were asked to sit at the bar. At first, we were disappointed because we were near the door and it was chilly but the staff were very helpful and moved us to the other side to sit at the bar. Although we had hoped for a table upstairs and a table did not become free, we were very happy because the staff were so nice and accommodating, the food was delicious and actually we enjoyed the informality of the bar and upstairs sounded more noisy. The kitchen is visible from the bar and is very clean and the staff are working really hard all the time. We had mussels and gnocci and both were delicious and the (house) wine was good quality. We will go back.

my main quibble would be the change of sittings at 8pm. we arrived along with a hoard of other diners at the same time. it's not pleasant when the entire restaurant sittings change at exactly the same time- the staff are stressed and hence the diners. could you not stagger the sittings??
the food was good but a tad overpriced for what was fairly basic food. While we enjoyed what we had chosen, the couple at the table next to us clearly didn't'...
