Beautiful wine and cocktails, food was lovely. The toilets were tip top too! I cheated and had the burger, but my partners chicken melted off the bone. Loved the ambience where dressing up would work, but I was right at home in my jeans.
Lovely setting, great food but we were a party of 4 and we were all Frozen!! We would have sat longer and enjoyed a few more drinks but we left because we were so cold.
Will be back though
Bought a client to The Grayson for a late lunch. Despite the booking they were not ready for us and had to make up a table in the top of the house which was empty on arrival. It was very busy and we were not a priority. Most disappointing was the food which tasteless and poorly executed. I could not eat the dessert. I would be very reluctant to return and would not recommend to someone looking for a tasty lunch.
Our meal was very nice. Our table however was near the door and everytime it opened/closed we felt the cold.
Fab meal, fab atmosphere, fab service I
f a little slow given how busy they were. Loved it!
Really enjoyed our food. My trout main course was excellent but there was more accompaniment than fish. All the veg and garnish was superb but the piece of trout was very small in my opinion. Service was a bit slow between starters and mains but we are at the busiest season of the year so I guess it’s to be expected. Overall good experience and we shall return.
We had a lovely lunch in the Grayson the food was gorgeous and the service was great. We were able to stay and have a leisurely afternoon with no rush for our table which was great.
Lovely place, staff and food but the 4 of us each ordered a steak which came with chips and salad. There was about 15 skinny fries and a bit of shredded lettuce. We we’re all still hungry after. The food was lovely, just not enough.
Had a lovely dinner with colleagues and clients - great venue.
Fabulous night,lovely staff & lovely food.
Hi CBlaire, Thank you for rating us. We are delighted you had a lovely experience with us. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Best Wishes, Eugen
An excellent night, we’ll certainly be back. Staff, ambience and food were all incredible
Beautiful venue great location poor food despite menu revamp
Disappointing to find out that there was a private event on in the bar downstairs as we wanted to have a drink there before / after dinner. If we knew this, we would have booked elsewhere. It’s hit or miss where your table is, we were crammed upstairs on a table for 4 when we were 5 and were meant to be delighted in the attic. Had an older guest who then found all the stairs tricky and chairs uncomfortable. Food good but the whole experience is not cheap. Won’t be back for dinner unfort but definitely drinks provided an event isn’t on!
Really enjoyed our dinner at The Grayson. Food was delicious and service attentive. Ambience and surroundings are elegant.
I thought the music was a bit generic and the chocolate dessert wasn't great- it was too sweet. Other than that the food came fast and the service was good.
I loved the location and interior and staff were very friendly but the food was average. The vegetarian options werent great and between myself and my husband we didnt eat the dessert!

Such a lovely experience at the Grayson. Our server was so attentive and really made our visit to the Grayson a pleasure. We came here for a Sunday roast and The food was amazing! One of the best meals I’ve had in a while. Will definitely be back!
Was dissapointed with service expect better with the prices. Here are some examples we think could have been improved. We arrived at our table and it had the seal from the previous diner's wine. We were not given a bread knife with our bread and butter. The waiter placed our bread dish in front of us rather than to our left. This was an issue when the waiter later arrived with the starters and had our bread dish in the way. There was no go her bowl with the muscles or no extra napkins. We had to request spoons for the sauce. Our water was not regularly topped up. My wife left to go to the restroom between the starter and main. When our cutlery was replaced the waiter placed the knife and fork on top of her napkin instead of simply moving it. When we asked for the dessert menu we were given the diner menu. As a whole these are small dissapointments but accumulated together they had a negative impact on our experience as it was amature mistakes. Would still give recommendation to a friend but would tell them to manage expectation on the service.

The greyson is a very nice venue. Staff were polite and friendly. The option we went for was the fizz and chips for 99€. It was expensive but we assumed it would be a lovely treat. It was very disappointing. The chips came out very plain with just a small dip with each one. With all the fancy versions of chips there are these days what we got was very underwhelming and disappointing. Nothing special about it at all which you would expect for the price and the advertising around it!

Staff were so nice and the nicest Lamp I've ever had!
Service was dissapointing but ambience and food were good
With its reputation you expecting excellence. Some of the food was cool. I had a steak and its was very cool and no better than your average restaurant. The potatoes was also cold.
Poor vegetarian options . Great views of Dublin. Better for a drink than food
Over priced with a bad ambience.
Particularly disliked the salt canisters, no table linen, sugar in sachets. At this price level this would be expected.
Wine list not great
Very small portions at a heavy price.
Had lunch with a friend for a special occasion and it was the perfect venue. The food was delicious and plenty of it. The house wine was also very nice. Service was excellent and staff very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend it and will certainly be back again.
Amazing! Great menu, delicious food, nice cocktails and outstanding service
Dinner for two. Food was only average. Open ravioli starter was raw (not al dente; just under done). Only highlight was good bearnaise sauce with steak. Music was turned on very loudly when we were almost finished second course. More like nightclub than restaurant. Very disappointed.

We hired the Grayson for a private event and we were incredibly well looked after. The barmen and staff were so kind and accommodating. I couldn't recommend the Grayson more for dinner, or any special occasion you are celebrating.
Hi Hannah, I am delighted to read your gorgeous review. I will be sure to pass on your comments to the team! I am thrilled you enjoyed your evening with us and look forward to welcoming you back here very soon! Best Wishes, Elaine
Not serious about being a serious restaurant. Service falls apart over the course of the dinner. Waitress disappeared. Some plates arrived missing items as described on the menu. No one checked back until waved down. Dishes were slow to clear between courses. Wines were not topped after being poured. Desserts arrived haphazardly by a staff that seemed to have checked out before the check was dropped.
Hello JonV, I am so disappointed to hear about your experience in The Grayson. I can only profusely apologize and say we definitely dropped the ball and I would greatly appreciate if you could email me direcly on email@example.com so I can look into this further. I look forward to hearing from you. Best Wishes, Elaine
General building condition outside of dining areas such as the stairway etc. require renovations. Birthday parties and groups also detract from the atmosphere.
