The venue is stunning. The food and service were excellent! The truffle polenta fries are to die for. The Halloumi is amazing. The charred corn with aoili and pistachio is worth the awkwardness! Incredibly tasty! The dessert, black sesame parfait, there are no words to describe this heavenly concoction with refreshing yuzu gelato and contrasting peppery meringue! Will definitely be coming back!

Not going to bash an establishment over one poor service but went Sunday afternoon when it was relatively quiet and the waiter just seemed like he wasn’t interested in being at work, we asked for a side dip of truffle mayo and we had to remind him 3 times as he had forgotten and in the end another colleague of his had to get it for us, we then asked for dessert menus and we had to ask twice and took over 15mins to get them, again same waiter, I ordered dessert and when I received my dessert I had no cutlery so I waited patiently, in the end I’m guessing the floor manager had to get me a spoon for my beeramisu which was fantastic likewise with the rest of our food, but what topped it for me was when the bill came, I was paying by card and when I decided to not leave a tip which I rarely do, the waiter replies ‘oh, ok then!’ He just seemed surprised that even though it was clear we weren’t having the greatest of service, he reckoned he deserved a tip?? Now as I said I won’t bash an establishment for a single poor sitting, I’ve been here multiple times with my friends or my other half and we’ve had unbelievable service and as always the foods impeccable. I just won’t ask for him to wait our table if he happens to be working at said given time

This was our first time at Urban Brewery and it was lovely, great atmosphere and space to have lunch in, with a bonus of the rugby being played (but wasn’t too intrusive).
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and let us have a look around as we were planning an event and thought this place would be ideal. Would recommend it to anyone for food or a casual drink and will definitely return

On Sunday the restaurant is not open below in the vaults, but full menu is available in the bar or outside...which was great. Same great food, beverages and service. Our third time to visit on our stay in Dublin. Seems to be mostly locals and not over run by rowdy tourists. Beer quality and variety second to none!

I went here with my partner after seeing the bar on instagram. There is a tapas bar upstairs and a more formal restaurant in the cellar. We ate in the tapas bar upstairs and it was great! We got six dishes a couple of beers and a cocktail. The food was great and the drinks were excellent. The ambience is nice and relaxed with some background music that is not too loud and you are able to hold a conversation really well. The choice of music is also great and suits the bar.

It was on the pricey side, but the presentation and the quality of the place was definitely worth it! We'll definitely be going back again to try more of the menu and the restaurant in the cellar.

We truly enjoyed our 1st visit to your wonderful establishment last Saturday. It was a special occasion for us & to our surprise & delight this was remembered & acknowledged by your lovely staff. It was my husband's first time having Tapas & he loved it and the waiter was ectremely helpful in offering advice & suggestions & they were great choices that we made. The standard of each & every dish that came out was as my husband said 'ridiculously good'!! We haven't stopped talking about it & will definitely be back. Thank you!!

The venue is fantastic in the old Dublin vaults. Food was excellent good choices. Big wine list and even bigger beer list. So good we went back the next night. Don’t let the raucous bar turn you off the down stairs is fantastic

Service was slow unfortunately both times I visited. Each time I visited, it wasn't too busy so unfortunately it can't be blamed on that. I asked for condiments twice that weren't delivered.

A pity because this place has all the right ingredients to be a hit. Hopefully, service improves!

Great place, beautiful design with a great selection of beers, wines and cocktails.
I've been here a lot recently with different friends as it is near my apartment and the best place in the area (4 times in the past week or so).

The only thing that bothered me was the music- it was very good the first time, but every evening it repeated exactly the same playlist and even part of the tracks in the playlist were playing on repeat. Hopefully the music will be more diverse in the future and I will be able to come back and enjoy the atmosphere.
