Absolutely delicious food and friendly service. Restaurant in a cavern below a bar. Bar itself very noisy with loud music but restaurant only has background music. I thoroughly enjoyed the seared foie gras.

Not for lunch.
Food was bland & overpriced for the portion sizes. Service was very cold and didn't add to the experience.
Have been there for the tapas and taps food in the bar in the evenings and the food was much nicer but you can hardly hear yourself speak with the loud music.

Restaurant was so much fun! The decor and atmosphere was unique and so much fun because of its uniqueness. The food was awesome as well. It seemed to be a bit understaffed, however that wouldn't stop me from going back again. The food and quantities was well worth it!

Was there for over 20 minutes and our waiter never took our drink order or brought us water. Restaurant was not busy. I expect more from a place with these kind of prices. We ended up leaving.

The atmosphere was really good, but the music was waaaay too loud compared to the stylish and relaxing environment. But once the food hits the table, the music becomes irrelevant. Never before have I tasted anything so delicious at this price point. I cannot recommend this place enough! If you are in the neighbourhood, do yourself a favor, and visit. It will blow your mind.

A genuinely fun time. The vaulted spaces were small enough for quiet conversation. The food is excellent. The lamb duo and beef duo were delightful pairings of braised and grilled meats. The server, Dylan, was attentive and professional, but also enjoyed some banter with us. This was an excellent restaurant for our first evening in Dublin.

I ordered the beef cheek ravioli special for €16 for lunch. I received 5 ravioli which is absolutely insane for the price. It was more like a starter.

Visiting from another country...means relying heavily on websites and reviews. The location description address had us in circles. Maybe give a reference point on the site (ex: next to the name of a big building or located in a plaza). The website does indicate two different places for the site, but we didn’t understand that until we got there. We had reservations for the basement, but they were for outside location. The staff didn’t bend on helping us get a table even with reservations. They were more considered with serving the locals upstairs. The food on the menu was okay, but overall this place seemed overrated. Ended up going to a place we thoroughly enjoyed.

Took a long time for the food to arrive.
As non drinkers, very poor selection of deserts.

The menu was limited and didn't represent value for money. There was no flexibility to ask for the ala cart menu. The early bird was very limited particularly the starters. Although the beef that I had was good it was fairly sparse in volume.

We ate in the Stack A restaurant a floor below the busy bar area. Food was good, atmosphere nice, lots of options for tables- open or in a personal spot. Seemed a bit rushed, but we experienced that in most restaurants in Dublin.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Food was exceptional!! So good. And the staff were brilliant. So efficient and friendly too. Very professional. Brought out a candle in a desert for my friend for her birthday- such a nice touch. Def feels like a treat. It is prob more on the expensive side but most places like that are in Dublin. And if I was to be fussy I’d say while their early bird menu was delicious and good value I would like to see a little more choice. But def would recommend this place. Especially before a concert in the 3 arena. Very handy.

My boyfriend and I absolutely love Urban Brewing for their drinks and atmosphere, and trying the food at the restaurant has increased our love even more. The staff were very friendly! The cauliflower complimentary dish was delicious. The starter of the pork and scallops was great, very rich in flavor! For mains we had the halibut which was nice but could’ve been a bit warmer and the steak which was mouthwatering! We also enjoyed delicious cocktails and a relaxed evening all together! Will definitely be coming back for more and will be telling all of our friends to give it a try also!

My scallops were burned. I had to send them back. However the staff are excellent and the rest of the food was ok, it’s a nice space.

Good food and service nice surroundings BUT....I ordered the "pork and scallop" starter. Two tiny pieces of pork and ONE SMALL scallop. And for EUR 13. This is very poor value and takes my overall score down by a point to a 3 only. Management be ashamed of yourselves.

The overall experience was very good, however I thought either the price could be improved or the substance of the food provided could be increased. (ie bread with starters or sides with the mains)

Ambience: we had a 6pm booking ....five hours later we were still there, fantastic comfortable setting
Food: Second time here and the food was sensational. Hake was melt in the mouth, textures, flavours, presentation all fantastic
Service: To quote one of the members of our party “the waiter is so lovely I kind of want to ask him to sit down and have the chats with us”. Extremely welcoming, attentive, friendly and knowledgeable of food and drink.

Had the st Patrick’s day tasters menu and it was spectacular. Also had it with the beer pairing, wasn’t a fan of one of the beers and they swapped the beer out at no additional charge. I can’t recommend the meal enough the chefs there know what they are doing.

Food was tast, overpriced and mean. Scallops for €13 was actually a single scallop. When they brought the starters we were looking for the rest of the dish to arrive! €27 lamb doesn’t include potatoes or vegetables. The food was well cooked, and tasty but too little of it, far too expensive and too many hidden extras. Dinner for four was over €300 but we were still charged €3.50 for bread. The staff were efficient and officious - no smiling, no personality or banter. Every question was answered with a poker face and we felt rushed to order. To be fair, we shared our feedback about the price and portions at the time and were offered a round of drinks which was appreciated. We won’t be back. If they keep taking advantage of their customers no one else will either! It was pretty quiet even though it was Saturday on a bank holiday.
