We arrived down in Dundalk for 2 nights and were excited to try the food and bar here! Unaware of the true extent of the souths reaction to covid-19 as well as ever changing closures etc, i checked facebook and your website and there was no information to state the closing of this restaurant on Sunday 15th March! Therefore i booked and as we arrived the doors were shut and lights were off at 8pm, i checked facebook again and still nothing! However now it appears it is still open for take out at least! Luckily our taxi driver waited and took us else where. The fact we were still able to book a table on open table was ridiculous when in fact you were closed!

Cold and uncomfortable. The first table we were offered, required 3 guests to sit on a cramped couch that was much to low to for comfortable dining. They are all over 6ft tall and the table was chest level. We explained the problem and were offered another table upstairs which was described as comfortable and cosy and was anything but. It was too cold to take your coat off. Other guest seemed to be suffering also. One lady tried putting her coat in the window to stop the draft but reverted to putting it over her knees. Another couple tried stoking the fire and declared they would not be returning. Another table of 4 left shortly after receiving the menus. The staff made several attempts to switch on a heater unit but failed. I fear management left them to deal with the issues and stayed well clear of the problem. It was obvious that there was a party which I assume was in a more comfortable area down stairs. The upstairs was not suitable and bookings should not have been taken for this area. Regardless of the temperature it lacked ambience. Tables and seating were poor standard. There was no candles or table cloths despite the fact that the menu was extensive and priced to suggest a higher standard of dining. The food was ok but not good enough to justify its price tag. Presentation was very average. We were celebrating a special family occasion and the standard of the restaurant became the main topic of conversation which was very disappointing. I don't usually write reviews because I prefer to say positive things or nothing at all. I made an exception for The Town House in the hope it saves others from the same experience. It may also encourage the venue to improve its standards.

We went valentines weekend , food and service was great but the fish special could have done with some vegetables, €25 euro for just fish and risotto is a bit pricey

Service Very Good as there was a nice time between courses. Set menu was lovely and the braised short rib was fabulous as you didn't have to cut it just pull it apart. Very enjoyable meal and would certainly recommend The Townhouse to anyone

I would not recommend the TH based on my experience on Feb 14th. We had a 9.15pm booking for 7 and felt quite rushed for our entire visit. Food was quite ordinary for 3 of the 7 main courses.

Third time here, and now for medical reasons I can only eat a half portion or starter. I asked if any of the mains could be done 1/2 size and was told no. I hate waste so I said I’d pay normal price but just wanted half size portion. And surprise surprise that wasn’t a problem! I was disappointed they couldn’t accommodate my request as we spent half the bill on cocktails and drinks!! My partner had steak which was amazing (he said). My half size Fritto Misto was overcooked. I didn’t say anything as at this point I was a bit peeved. Great cocktails and I love this place normally, but will think again about going back.

The Townhouse is our new favorite restaurant. The staff are professional, polite and very friendly but the star of the Townhouse is the food. Every plate goes back empty which really says it all. We were there for Sunday lunch and the flavour of the food was only fabulous, as was the choice and presentation. Would highly recommend and will be back

The food is so disappointing. I had been in December and wasn't impressed but wanted to give it another chance. I shared the seafood mezze as a starter. It was very poorly presented, looked completely unappetising and was very underwhelming to eat. The scallops were overcooked. We asked for some bread to go with is and were charged for it. Half an avocado was part of the dish and it was rock hard. Any chef would know not to serve that to anyone even if it is part of the dish, it could easily have been replaced with a side salad or something!! I had the verona pizza for my main, nothing wrong with it but far from the best pizza I've ever had. The staff are lovely and it's such a beautiful building its a shame that the food is such a let down.

Had a lovely meal here Saturday night with my husband. I had the crab claws in garlic butter and salmon ravioli. My husband had chicken wings and duck ravioli. We also got a garlic pizza bread on the side. I asked for it with mozzarella and strangely it came out dry with a small ramekin of grated mozzarella on the side. The chicken wings were ok but not very crispy or flavorful but everything else was lovely and service was great as always. Hopefully we will be back this weekend.

Had the buffalo cauliflower wings to start with and they were very tasty. However, I had the prawn pizza as a main which was very disappointing. I'd had this pizza a few weeks ago and it was delicious but it was completely different this time, very bland. The prawns tasted like the cooked ones you buy in a supermarket freezer. I was at a table of 6 and there was mixed feelings about various courses, some good, some bad. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
