Taste at Rustic
Delicious food. Very fresh and different tastes. We had the taster menu and everything was perfect.
My sister and i experienced sushi at taste for the time ,have to say the food and servive was excellent ,the only issue we had was when we got our bill there was 12.5% service charge where on the menu it says partys of six or more get charged this 12.5%.
Amazing food- very unique take in sushi, great ropm incredible staff, be we were served, I BELIEVE, by the manager - half Swiss/English woman, and a great waitress , it was among the best service I've ever had. I'm a big fan of fade street, and this restaurant will be part of our rotation too
Unfortunately we did not enjoy our meal. I ordered broccoli tempura and the coconut lime hot pot. The broccoli tempura was served with a very small portion of a spicy mayonnaise which promptly ran out. The coconut lime hot pot tasted like a hot sugary cocktail with raw vegetables in it. Also you have to cook it yourself. You throw the raw vegetables into the metal pot with the liquid already in it and sit and wait. The waiter said it would take a minute. Long after the minute had passed, I began eating the hot pot and the vegetables were still raw in the sugary tasting liquid. It was horrid.
Very nice atmosphere and good food. Desserts were the best.
Our second time at Taste. Last time we had a table placement and took the Sampling Menu. This time we only managed places at the counter. We took a la carte and it was very good indeed. Dishes prepared with care, beautifully presented and delicious. Definitely a must for us every time in Dublin
The entire experience was wonderful! We shared a number of dishes all of which were overflowing with flavours and fabulous textures, we’ll definitely be back!!
This is my favorite restaurant in Dublin. There is a wonderfully varied menu with the freshest of ingredients. The service is excellent in every detail.
I enjoy and savor every delicious bite!
Easy location with high level Food. Asien Fusion at it‘s best!
A truly wonderful experience .. we will be back ! 💕
Food was superb. Service good. Only issue was delay waiting on the sushi but it was worth it.
Taste is one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever had ! LOVED every plate , specially the OTORO nigiri ! Worth every dime !
Gorgeous food and staff were very friendly , they acknowledged a delay between courses without us saying or indicating we weren’t happy and offered us a discount. Very good customer care.
The food is totally over priced and the quality does not match the price. We ordered two miso soups, a salad, some sushi and had one glass of wine & one sake. Our meal came to €150 which we felt was very expensive for the quality and quantity of food we received. We were in the restaurant for less than 1 hour as the food came out so fast. We left feeling hungry and unsatisfied. Definitely would not recommend this restaurant.
Marco and his Team are terrific...every time!
Great food and service. Only comment is that for a tasting menu the portions were a little too much. Would have preferred more dishes with smaller portions
My friend keeps talking about our meal at Rustic because it had been ages since a meal pleased him that much, although his travelling job does make him eat out a lot. And I agree. Lovely setting, really delicious and original food, very helpful waiters. The tasting menu is just amazing. Just cannot wait to go back.
Enjoyed the food and experience overall. Was hoping for more of a sushi-based meal, would know better next time. Beef sushi was strange. The main thing was that the wait staff was too directive, tried to tell us what to order and how much. I'm sure she was trying to be helpful, but I have eaten out before. Also, the emphasis seemed to be too much on having a grill at the table, multiple changes of service, etc. I prefer more of a focus on the food, with the rest being understated.
Waitress lovely and helpful. Atmosphere lovely. Drinks were very nice.
Food was very slow to come out. Starters came out every 10 mins or so. Over 30 mins by time all the starters came out.
The glazed pork for main had a nice flavour but very fatty and chewy.
Also v expensive for what it is. More expensive than Zuma in London which has beautiful Japanese food. Better sushi in the take away Kokoro in Merrion Sq ..... or else around Parnell Sq where the original Asian food houses are. It’s a shame.
The Taste is a real treat for a very special occassion. It is quite expensive but when you have eaten there you can clearly see why. The Quality of ingredients used is clearly very high, the presetation of the food is exceptional and the service is excellent and very attentive. I would definitely recommend Taste at Rustic, but I would inform friends to expect to pay high prices for high quality food and service in a sultry, energetic setting.
Perfect place for a birthday dinner, the only thing is that our waitress was busy and brought the plate and candle long after serving desserts...
Best sushi in Ireland we've ever tasted. What a treat and great experience!
Wow what a fantastic meal! We went there on Saturday night, 6 of us, our booking was late 9.15 so
Amazing experience. Food was very high standard if you really understand and feel. JAPANESE food. Also, with a personal influence of The Chef. Scallops were absolutely amazing, roasted garlic added to them. Additional notes that ate otherwise you would never be able to achieve.
Main courses are excuisite and made to perfection. Even non waguy beef was tender as jelly.
Cocktails are very nice as well. Reminded me of Cut by Wolfgang Puck in.Singapore or Hong Kong St no 50 there.
Expect to spend around 150-200 euro for decent courses for 2. More if you getting waguy.
Buba provided really great service which left a deep impression on us. Though fish species in Ireland are not that many but Chef Konmatsu did a good job for making 12pieces of delicious sushi platter. Strongly recommend. Best place for authentic Japanese cuisine in Dublin.
Menu was a little small but the food we got was very good quality.
Beautiful meal on a busy Saturday night (Valentine's weekend), service was good and ambience nice. Personally I would have liked to see a bit more options on the menu. Other than that good meal :)
Really loved this place! Gourmet style Asian food that became the highlight of our Dublin weekend, i.a. some of the best sushi we have ever eaten served by a very friendly sushi Chef from Tokyo. Impeccable service from both waiter and sommelier, perfect ambience and a very nicely designed interior.
Visiting Dublin? Put Taste at Rustic at the top of your Dinner list, we would :)
Delighted with our evening out at Rustic - can't wait to go back!
Thank you all at Rustic
It was a really enjoyable experience. Fantastic food and atmosphere. The staff we brilliant and the manager was extremely attentive. We were seated on the 'counter' seating which was actually very pleasant and wonderful to see the chefs in action. Not overly large selection of vegetarian dishes but the ones they do have were delicious. The desserts were the highlight! Will definitely be going again.
Service was poor, we were unable to get the attention of staff throughout our night
Over-priced for the standard of the food. It was nice but nothing out of the ordinary, which is what you'd expect at these prices.
Good fun watching my friend struggle to eat her dinner with chopsticks. Great staff and food, a little pricey.
Food was fab we had an early table so was very quiet. Place a little cold but it was a very cold evening.
Would definitely return
Food was excellent. The air could be less smokey and fresher
I have eaten here on two occasions once at the counter and once in a corner. The staff have been lovely, attentive and helpful with the menu. The main maitre d has a presence which I like, and a good sense of humor. However I find the seating tight.
I last dined at Taste on Thursday 17th January and unfortunately our order was not taken correctly, which was fine in the end as we had plenty of food, but at the same time, not great.
However, our bigger problem was your smoke alarm system went off above our heads! and kept going on and off until we could no longer listen to it, and left. The windows were also opened to dispel the smoke which made for a very loud and cold experience. Your staff apologized repeatedly, but I would have loved to have stayed on and enjoyed a coffee and desert and conversation.
I guess these things happen.
Everything was perfect, escept that we stay for 3 days in Dublin and came to the restaurant recommended to taste the sushi but the chef was on a training in Japan. So most of the menu was not available. For a restaurant like this, They should prevent this situation and delegate those menu option to the chef's team in his absence.
Great restaurant with delicious Japanese food, one of our favourites in the city!
The nigiri sushi is delicious although expensive, but otherwise the food does not come close to its marketing hype. Some of the cocktails are very odd tasting mixtures and the sticky pork main course we had was very fatty.
We had an amazing meal at Taste. Service was fantastic and they really went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience.
