Bagots Hutton is located on the trendy South William Street, just a stone's throw away from the main shopping thoroughfare, Grafton Street. This restaurant is also a late night wine bar and houses original whiskey taverns in the back of the venue. These taverns are available for dining or drinks and date back to the early nineteenth century. The historic setting is coupled with an extensive wine list and a tasty European menu that includes tapas style dishes if you feel so inclined. The staff are informal and friendly in Bagots Hutton and they enjoy advising their customers on potential menu choices. Many of the dishes are inspired by the variety of wine; the food is fresh and fun. This is a great spot for any occasion.

Aesthetically this places looks good but it's far too crowded, with tables crammed together making it a very uncomfortable dining experience. The acoustics are also terrible (not really their fault, but it's very hard to chat due to the noise). The selection of food is decent and the starter was very good (Bresaola) however the pizza was abysmal. The taste was only so-so and the base was undercooked and doughy (as was my friends pizza). The pasta being served at the table next to us looked stodgy and small, though I can't comment on the taste. Service was very patchy; having asked for water twice we eventually got up and got it ourselves. The diners next to us did likewise for black pepper. When the plates were eventually cleared from our mains we waited for the dessert menu. And waited. I finally asked for a dessert menu only to be told the they don't do desserts (!) despite there being a dessert menu on their website. Overall: mediocre food, terrible service, and incredibly cramped environment. Not good enough to give a second chance.

Had a lovely wine & the food. The menu is more expensive than what they say on their website - bresaola bruschetta 10 euro on the website but we were actually billed for 15 euro and small mixed sharing board (meat and cheese) was 20 euro but on the website it says 10 euro. With a bottle of Rioja, the bill was 70 euro. Wine and the food were very nice but slightly overpriced.

It was a really nice place to visit, but we were there at 5 and there were very few there. We had lovely pasta bruschetta with fresh cherry tomato and gorgeous pizza would definitely go back.

I recently whiled away the hours in style with friends at the Bagots Hutton restaurant. Hidden on the ground floor, the seemingly small cantina gives way to a larger floor space behind in Italian style designs. The food and wine are good with pizzas and platters being served. A few wines weren't on offer including Malbecs but otherwise a comprehensive wine and drinks menu, all to be enjoyed in relaxed and chilled surroundings

Eight of us visited Bagots Hutton last Friday to celebrate some birthdays. For the sake of everyone, I'll leave it in points: -The first two who arrived had their drinks orders taken, no bother. I was the third to arrive, and after I was shown to the table, we weren't given a second glance for about 40 minutes. After asking the waiter to help push our two tables together, he then left without taking our orders, and we had to ask him to come back to do so. It seemed woefully understaffed - apparently only the manager and one waiter for the entire restaurant on a Friday evening? All of us had pizzas except two who had a shared cheese/meats board. This board inexplicably arrived ten minutes after the rest of us had all FINISHED our meals. It didn't require any cooking...apparently just forgotten about? - We ordered three bottles of house white, plus one beer. When we asked the price of the house white, our waiter told us 'around 20e' (the beer, we were told, 'around 5e'). Not only were we refused a specific price (which I'm fairly sure is illegal), the wine wasn't 'around 20e'. It was 28e. A significant difference. The beer was also more than a fiver. BUT the worst part was when we came to pay. When it finally came around to getting the bill, we were told it came to a gobsmacking €241. For a group of 8 young women, who had shared mains and drinks. When we queried this, we were dismissed with 'that's what it came to'. We asked for a bill - they don't do bills. We were left to ask for a menu and calculate our balance ourselves (around 180e). Eventually, some of us went back up to them and the manager ever-so-graciously sat himself down with a "so what's the problem?" and a smile, before concluding that indeed, our bill was incredibly off the mark. Apologies were lacklustre - we were told the waiter had been told to go and have a smoke and 'sort himself out', and no concessions were even offered towards our bill. Won't be going back - food, while nice, was nothing special (I had a Four Seasons pizza, which at my count had only had three different vegetables on it). Atmosphere - I'm young, but there's still something sad about a restaurant/wine bar that can't decide whether it wants to be a pub or a club, and so mixes minimal lighting and a dj booth with people who are just trying to have a meal.

Absolutely fab place. Had a birthday party there with the girls the other day and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food and wine were both excellent. Staff are wonderful, very laid back and friendly. When they ran out of change in the till they actually gave me back my money and told me I can pay them later. I paid them with all coins then and there was no hassle at all. The place is so intimate and charming. A rare find! For all my foodie and wino friends out there I couldn't recommend this place highly enough!

Despite the friendly staff, just because you're a hipster doesn't mean you can get away with being a poor waiter. Service was pleasant but scatty at best. The food is above average Italian. I don't get why pizza restaurants serve thin base, thick crust pizza. It just unnecessarily bloats the customer's stomach and then leaves no room for desert hence reducing their own sales. €28 for the cheapest bottle of win. Only one bottle under €35. Seat's in the restaurant part are very uncomfortable. Despite all that there is a really cool decor and a good vibe in the place. Might go back for just for a sharing plate and cocktails if service improves

Bagots was recommended by a friend and I was keeping an eye out for it (had never seen it before despite regularly going out on South William st). It did not disappoint at all! We arrived on a busy Friday night and were greeted and shown to a seat. I wasn't sure what wen to choose so I was offered a taste which I really appreciated! We ordered a large chutuarie board with cheese and got two huge boards that were absolutely delicious. Will defo be telling more people about here.

While on a bit of a saturday afternoon catch up with some girlfriends, we strolled into bagots hutton on the recommendation of some other friends. Initially, I was surprised at its size, like being in someone's living room, and full of ladies doing the same thing as us. As we were only staying for one, we settled on the house white and the house red wines. The white wine went down a treat, the red wine unfortunately did not. We also ordered a mixed cheese and meat board which also came with bread and was delicious. The bill came to €44 (for the food and x4 glasses of wine) which was reasonable enough between four of us. However the waiter decided not to come back with our change.....€11! Now in this day and age when the celtic tiger is dead and buried, who leaves a 25% tip when you've literally been there for less than an hour. When we questioned the waiter, he came back with a face on him saying he thought we were leaving him a tip. Now don't get me wrong, we had every intention of leaving him a tip, but thought it was quite rude to be as presumptuous as he was. Yes, this place is a tad pretentious, but we knew what we were getting when we decided to go there.

Went for a glass of wine with a group of friends on a Wed night, nice and relaxed atmosphere , I had a glass of red shyraz, which wasn't great, too warm and tasted like it had been opened for a while for 9 euro, definitely overpriced! A friend of mine had a bruschetta that looked delicious though. Would give it another chance and go for aperitivo soon.

After some antipasti and an Aperol spritz in Taste of Emilia on Liffey St. last Saturday night, I headed to Bagots Hutton Wine Emporium– a new wine bar which has created some buzz on the Dublin nightlife scene. As soon as I walked downstairs, I was confronted with a wall of sound from the chatter of the hip crowd huddled around the bar like emperor penguins sheltering from the beats being pumped out by the resident DJ. We quickly found a table and were given the wine menu which I was delighted to see was predominantly focussed on old world wines – Bagots Hutton also serves small plates of antipasti and the like. We ordered glasses of Selvapiana Chianti Rufina 2010 and Vigneti Del Vulture Pipoli Aglianico del Vulture 2009 (despite the title, there was sadly no Dolcetto). While we waited for our drinks, I fought through the manbags and Manolos to peek into the back room which was heaving with partygoers not drinking Jager bombs, cocktails or indeed those lamentable quarter bottles of plonk…but shock horror…decent wine served in proper wine glasses. Whatever had the world come to? At this point it’s probably worth explaining that on the Saturday night that I visited at least, Bagots Hutton was not the place to go if you wanted to enjoy a quiet bottle of wine and reminisce with an old friend – unless your old friend was a fan of French house and electro of course – then you’d have been in the right place. I’m pretty sure that if the proprietors had decided to put in a dance floor, it would’ve fit right in. The list had 20 reds, 12 whites, two sparklers, one beer and one cider. All but three of the wines were available by the glass and most came in around the €7-€9 mark or €28-30 by the bottle. It was a list seemingly focused on reliability rather than rarity or excitement but in my opinion any list that gives pride of place to Albarino and Aglianico over Pinot Grigio and mundane Merlot should be applauded on principle alone. The traditional varieties were still there of course but the discerning drinker was certainly afforded ample choice. The one minor glitch of the evening came when I wanted to try the San Gervais Vino Nobile de Montepulciano 2006 but found out that it was one of the three wines that weren’t available by the glass. Unprompted, the waiter, who incidentally was working his first shift, suggested an alternative reportedly from the same grape variety– Le Salare Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2009. The “Montepulciano misunderstanding”, as I have come to call it, has without question been made in wine bars and restaurants the world over and given the night that was in it, I was inclined to chalk this down to first shift nerves and I admired the effort to at least offer me a similar alternative. On Saturday night’s evidence, Bagots Hutton will certainly be a go to place for both the wine aficionados and boulevardiers of Dublin alike. The combination of good wine and a true bar setting makes for a great addition to the local wine scene and it’s definitely somewhere I’ll be heading back to in the near future.

Attempted to join a Birthday do last night with 5 other friends at the Bagots Hutton and was approached by an extremely rude individual, who i hope was not the owner. Who abruptly said no, no, we are full- no more capacity. We explained we were meeting friends for a birthday- rudely cut us off while speaking and moved us towards the door...he would not even let us find our friends to let them know that we could not join them. Here's a little sound advice; you are a fairly new establishment located in a basement, in a city suffering a recession...that horrific lack of customer service and basic manners is not the approach your business should embrace. Well done Bagots Hutton that is exactly the business savvy that all new businesses who want to fail should adopt! BRAVO. So word of advice if ever in Dublin avoid the Bagots Hutton. There are many other establishments that would welcome your patronage. So disappointing- Celtic Tiger pretentiousness is passe!
