The restaurant is understated elegance. We were a table of 6 and the service was fantastic, very attentive with out be intrusive. Everyone of the party commented on how fantastic the food was. I couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

We weren’t late and couldn’t have expected kitchen would be closing as it was 2pm. Service was good, food was average for what you pay, rooms need updating and bath/shower combined with basic units. Was a pre Christmas treat and wouldn’t do it again at that price it’s totally over rated.

The most disappointing dish I have ever had in this restaurant- and I’m a regular guest. This is the reason for the lower rating on the food. Other 3 meals were v.good. Very harsh adding €10 supplements or steak onto €59 for a 2 course lunch ! This is the reason for the lower rating on value for money. Wines were pricey at €58/€59 for Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. This also contributed to the reason for the lower rating on value for money. We will be back, but if you don’t know what way a dish is prepared- ask !

Opened bottles of still and sparking water without offering us tap water. At 8€ a bottle of still water is not on. Told us to order sides as the boiled potatoes were poor and always got thrown out.

Covid 19 regulation in place but colleagues all over the place to help n support. Never felt the new normal. Good ambience, ali who served us know his job, worth talking to him about the Menu. Knowledgeable guy, thanks ali for your brillant service. A Happy smiling line manager (2-5pm) does a floor walk every 15mins that shows his responsibility. Wondering about the rate, compared to the service and quantity. Highly recommend 👍❤️

The only downside to the evening was I found the wine very pricey at 15 Euro a glass you wouldn’t be having very many of them

We could hear conversations on both tables either side of ours. I left our house with my decision made. I wanted the lobster. Rory talked me out of it! Twice!! He said I'd be very disappointed with it and it's presentation. He said most people he has served it to have been disappointed. So...I opted for the sole which was delicious. Service was very slow in the beginning. Our table was booked for 5:30 and we arrived at that time. We paid our bill at 19:41. That's more time than the Covid allowance. On both occasions that I visited the ladies I met two people each time without a mask. The second time was the restrooms off the dining room. One man came out of the gents without a mask as I was going down the stairs and inside the ladies there was a woman with no mask on.

Our Lobster is served as Thermidor style without the shell. This is explained to ensure the guest receives what they expect. We apologise if this was not clear, however we are delighted you enjoyed your Sole. We strive to ensure all guests abide by the guidelines. It is difficult to enforce mask wearing throughout the hotel and we apologise if this made you feel unsafe. Kind regards, Andreja- Restaurant Manager

Service could not be faulted, and food very, very tasty. Lovely selection of wines by the glass as well. Made our celebration, esp given the restriction from vivid at this time.

We went there this week to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary as we had our wedding night in the Shelbourne. Our waiter Ali made the visit very memorable as he had a great balance between friendly, funny and professional. The food was lovely. The atmosphere was a bit stifled but I think that was due to COVID measures although in general they need to be careful about sanitizing the old world ambience away. Removing the iconic statues was a mistake. Finally, I know it is a 5 star hotel but the prices have sky rocketed in the past 4-5 years. They have doubled and as a result, our visits have halved. €6 for a coffee, really?

I expected the room itself to be more grand, similar to where the afternoon tea is, however, we got a nice table in the corner. The hotel was very organised and we felt safe. The food was exceptional and overall very good value. The wine was expensive with no bottle within our budget, but we enjoyed a glass. Overall a very good experience, I would recommend and hope to return.

For an expensive venue no extras offered like coffee refill or mints. An extra bottle of wine incorrectly added to the bill was removed when brought to the attention of the manager, who was very pleasant but would recommend scrutinizing your bill.
