    Pretty poor. We had a table of a few of us. Food took a while to arrive, but there were large gaps between the food arriving so some people had to wait. My meal never arrived and my friends soup didn’t arrive. When I asked what happened, the first server didn’t come back. When the second server asked on how we were getting on, he apologised that it hadn’t been out through, which happens. One of my friends said her meal was inedible. When we came to pay the bill, the last server had a really bad attitude. She kept huffing and rolling her eyes when we had to pay each of our portions of the bill. We go out as a group every week and this was by far the worst experience.

    Disappointing service let Ukiyo down on our visit. We requested not to be seated on benches but we were were only offered benches, without apology. We had to negotiate seating at a table with chairs. We waited a long time after being seated for menus. Eventually we got up and got them ourselves. We waited again to place our orders before having to get up (again!) and go find someone to whom to place our order. After placing our orders we were waiting a long time for our orders to be delivered. Some of our party were waiting a long time for their order after others at our table had been served which was awkward for everyone. There was no recognition by staff of the poor service they were offering our group. All that said, Ukiyo is in a good location and has outdoor seating (in the shade in the evenings, which is lovely on a hot day). The wines are good. Those of my party who had cocktails enjoyed them. And the selection of small and large plates means a group can choose options to suit their appetites.

    The food was excellent, we had sushi and it was so fresh and delicious. The service was perfect, our waitress Lua was super friendly. I have a gluten and dairy intolerance and they made sure the items I ordered were safe for me to eat. My husband and I will definitely be coming back!

    Food was delicious and good value but service let the experience down. We had to ask the first round of drinks 3 times with a half hour wait to receive and the second round only slightly better as had to ask twice for as well. We were asked by waitress if we would leave a tip and then kicked off table (we were leaving anyway as had closed bill by that point) Had been excited to go back to ukiyo post Covid but won’t be returning

    Our server was spectacular. Killer was his name. A really pro caring attentive restaurateur. The music was a bit intense but low ish enough to ignore haha. Food was beyond. Last time I was the re the truffle sushi had no taste of truffles. So I don't order this time but that would epic if it did taste of truffles. Love fusion Sushi!

    I’ve never had such bad sushi, they were so small, me and my boyfriend got different sushi but when we got them they were the same, the waitress had here friends over right beside our table and they were so loud, the prices are too high for the sushi we had it’s not worth it at all

    There were four floor staff working and while the restaurant was busy enough, it’s not a big restaurant. We were left waiting to order for 40 minutes, completely ignored by all staff. The table beside us even noticed how long we were waiting and tried to wave down a waiter for us. When the waiter noticed, there was no apology. The food was lovely, but the service was appalling. No one checked if everything was alright with the food and it took another 20 minutes to wave down a waiter for the bill. We couldn’t have ordered a second drink even if we wanted to.

    Seated downstairs which was dark and not very atmospheric despite it being a Saturday night. The menu was quite limited, and the vegan options even more so. The edamame were oily (a choice!) and the katsu cauliflower was insufficiently sauced. There were no vegan dessert options. However, I was initially told that the macaroons were vegan and I ordered then. Finally, they said it was a mistake and they weren't vegan which was disappointing.

    Enjoyed the dinner very much. Would definitely recommend. Another group took our reserved table (without permission from the staff) so the manager gave us a free round in recompense. Staff was very friendly / attentive and sought to answer all our questions about the food. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good choice if looking for Japanese/Sushi in Dublin.

    A friend and I were told when we walked in that they did not take walk ins, bookings only. So we left and having really wanted some sushi I booked through OpenTable for 5 minutes later. When we walked back in the guy that had told us no walk ins was visibly annoyed. He then proceeded to tell us it had been very busy earlier and they were short staffed. Maybe if he’s explained that initially we would have left. I am aware of staffing issues in service industry. Only one server seemed to be in good humour. Guy with a moustache. We saw more people as walk ins and were seated. Probably wouldn’t go back. Food was good though.

    I loved Ukyio. We were greeted by lovely staff. Two of our four person party were over 30 mins late. Nobody minded. We were allowed to keep our table for the whole night which was a wonderful bonus. The food was so fresh and delicious. Really interesting. We had great wine and cocktails. The bill was very reasonable. The staff were kind, always available (which is unusual these days), and very knowledgeable about the food and quantities we'd need. I'd highly recommend the place and look forward to going back
