Myself and my partner went to Ripleys on Saturday night. While the food was fine, the staff seemed over busy and disorientated. We were attended by several waiters over the course of the evening, asked if we would like desert on two occasions and after putting a €XX note in the Bill our change was never returned. We had planned to leave a tip but seeing as the waiters didn't return our change we were pretty annoyed as we felt the difference between the bill total and cash we put down was too much for the tip. Didnt complain, although I really wanted to. While the food was fine, we were very very dissappointed with the service and we will not be going back.

I was part of a large group of 9 guys who had a table booked for 8pm. We arrived on time and everything was ready. The staff were great, full of chat and smiles with a prompt service. The food was of a very high standard. I went for an Irish Coffee after (made correctly) instead of a desert and I recommend that as the better option. On our next visit to Kilkenny we will definately visit again. Highly recommended. The Steak Hot Pot was the pick of all our dishes.

8 of us had dinner here about 2 weeks ago. We had heard a lot about the restaurant.We found the steaks to be perfectly to everyone's request. I had the steak fajita tower and it was sumptious. However I would just suggest that the steak be cut in thinner strips to help with the eating of the food. My caesar salad was uneventful and overpriced for what was a very small portion. Will try the restaurant again another time I'm sure.

Great service and excellent food. I had the cajun chicken caesar for starters which was more like a main and the steak was fab...with home made chips too! The service for our group of ten was seamless - couldn't fault it. Would highly recommend.

I ate here with a gang of 11 on a Saturday night. I ordered the Chicken Caesar Salad for Starter and then had the Chicken & Cashew Nut dish for my main, both from the Early Bird menu, washed down with a nice bottle of white wine. The service was great, especially considering we were quite a large group. I’d definitely highly recommend Ripley’s and the staff were extremely efficient and polite. It can be difficult finding restaurants to accommodate large groups and the spacious surroundings of Ripley’s is perfect for birthdays/hen parties or large gatherings!

Have been here on a few occassions and have always liked the food! Can be a bit pricey especially for the fajitta tower, which is good but lacks sauce and needs more spice! Really enjoy the starter platter and thier deep fried brie is amazing, with the cranberry dip. The highlight of my last visit was defiantly the malteaser brioche pudding-UNBELIEVABLE!!! I find the service consistently good and the staff friendly.

Nice restaurant - quite busy when we were there but still the staff were prompt and friendly. Very vast and varied menu(maybe a bit too varied) and a good kids menu. We had platter starter and steak and prawn fajitas for main course which were very tasty. My only problem with this place were the prices - too expensive for what we got. Overall it was a pleasant dining experience but a bit pricey !!

We went to Ripleys for a birthday dinner with a large group. Ripleys is ideally suited to big groups and is popular for birthday, hen, and stag parties. The decor is a little strange - bamboo in a steak house? Perhaps it was a chinese restaurant at some stage - and it does tend to get quite loud if there are a few different party groups in, so we haven't rated it very highly for ambience. That said, if you were in a big group and if you were the ones making noise then you would probably really enjoy it! The food is a decent standard considering the high turnover and how busy they get, (there was a queue out the door the night that we were there), but the service can be a little brusque.
