    I had one of the best meals I have had in a long time at the Saddle Room at the Shelbourne. Great service, great food and friendly staff. It is not “outrages” Michelin star type food, but great Irish dishes with an international flair, exceptionally well prepared and very tasty…. Highly recommend by this “foodie”.

    Lovely place, impecable service. Good wine list. The food presentation is remarkable but the taste not impressive. I got stake medium cooked and have to say that I can do a better job at home when it comes to taste.

    Another absolutely phenomenal experience at The Saddle Room at The Shelbourne Hotel! From the moment we arrived, we were made feel like the only guests they had and they treated every party in the same warm, friendly, and professional manner. Caroline seated us and she was simply marvellous. Her charming, gregarious demeanour made us feel extremely special and she was the perfect ambassador for The Saddle Room. Her dedication to excellence was evident and preempted what was to be another exquisite evening. Baris, our server, was brilliantly attentive and could not do enough for us. His spirit to serve was palpable and as it was my partner’s birthday, he brought us some flutes of champagne on the house as well as a lovely birthday dessert with a candle and ‘Happy Birthday’ written in cursive on the plate after our dinner. We cannot sing his praises enough and he epitomises all that The Shelbourne Hotel stands for over the past 200 years. The food was divine in every way. We were brought a fantastic warm bread basket with Irish butter - so good, we had to ask for seconds! To start, we had the salmon tartlet and chicken and foie gras terrine which were both exquisite. The salmon tartlet included caviar and crab which was both light and fresh, decadent and flavoursome. The terrine with the grilled sourdough bread was also a real treat - sumptuous and delicious. For our main course, we both went for the lamb with sides of cauliflower gratin and truffle fries. This really was a pièce de résistance. The flavours were beautifully paired and the bed of mash on which the lamb rested was velvety smooth. The lamb itself was tender and melt in the mouth. The sauce and edamame beans provided umami flavours and texture, while the sides added another welcome dimension to an already superb dish. Needless to say, we were far too full to indulge in dessert, but they too looked wonderful. Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening, we cannot wait to return.

    The quality of the food was five star and the service matched. The value was very reasonable considering the quality of the experience. Highly recommended.

    The foreign waiters were awful and clueless, but we were saved by the lovely girl from Sligo. Very limited menu. Wine list has almost all only young wine.

    This is an excellent dining experience. We were there for lunch and enjoyed it greatly. The two course meal menu at €40 is a deal and worth embracing. Our server was from Argentina and the Sommelier was charming and knowledgeable too. Very good place indeed and a marked step up from the casual 57 next door. The salmon starter was delicious as was the lamb from Ballyhaunis. Kids’ options on the ‘VIK’ menu great also.
