Can not recommend this place enough! If you book it make sure not to book a table downstairs as it right beside where the steaks are cooked. Will defo be going back. My steak was so tender and perfectly cooked. Side - delicious. Cocktails - delicious.

I've been here both for lunch and dinner in the past month. I can't recommend it highly enough. A great little find. If you're looking for somewhere quiet, then this may not be for you. Really nice buzzy atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff and really good food. Lunch downstairs is fine, great steak sandwich but If you are going for dinner definitely request a table upstairs. The 28oz Porterhouse between two is delicious. Nice wine list too!!! (any really nice wine glasses :-)

I had booked this a few times for colleagues who had said it was great so I recommended to a group of friends that we try it. The place was busy and atmosphere seemed good. The service at first seemed good until it actually came to serving the food - they brought out 5 out of 6 starters and the 6th one didn't arrive until everyone else was finished. When they brought the steaks they didn't bring any sides - they had to be reminded about 4 times and even then we didn't get them all. Our waitress wasn't terribly happy when we asked (nicely) for the manager. In fairness he was very nice and apologetic but did admit that they were having problems with all tables. He did reduce our bill which was appreciated and also gave us a drink on the house. Our steak wasn't great either - we'd got a rib eye for 2 which was sinewy and full of gristle - very disappointing. Hopefully it was just a bad night but I'm not sure I'd be rushing back!

We went here with a voucher for a Sunday roast for two with cocktails. I had been really looking forward to trying this place for some time and as we were gifted a voucher, the perfect opportunity had arose. We arrived and were seated in a loud busy area of the establishment right next to the cooking area, not a great start but we both figured things would get better. After we had been told the roast for the day was beef, we were handed a cocktail menu. We both ordered a cocktail expecting to get it before or after the meal, as one would expect. The meal arrived, vegetables looked great but the beef was not at all cooked. Now, I should add that I like my steak medium rare, but this was far beyond rare. it was barely edible, I didn't want to create too much fuss so I had a few mouth fulls but mid way through had no choice but to send it back. The cocktails arrived mid way through the meal and were average at best (they should have come before or after the meal), and a moment or two later my beef came back as it should have first been presented to me in the first place. My fiance was disgusted and insisted we shouldn't stay for desert. Guys, almost everything you could have done wrong here, well you did. We weren't even asked if we would like to order a starter, which we both had decided before we arrived, that we would. Instead the food was brought out uncooked, the cocktail brought out mid meal and the waiter who served us failed to explain our options as I heard the other waiter had done for others sitting with vouchers. For what I believe is regarded as a high end establishment, you first need to get the basics right. Against my better judgement I left a tip but on reflection, the food nor the service was worth it. On leaving, what appeared to be a manager wished us well without even asking how the meal was, another basic error. My fiance later said she would have preferred a cheap sit down burger meal. Needless to say, I won't be returning.

Fabulous steaks, wonderful flavours, great service and atmosphere. Good steakhouses are rare enough in Ireland and some get better press than they deserve but this new restaurant is top notch with a cooking style equal to any NYC steakhouse. The porterhouse is the best I've had in Ireland and enough for two.. Sides were delicious as were the starters.. I hope they do well and are rewarded for their effort..

This is an amazing restaurant. It ticks all the boxes. The cocktails are unique and delicious. Then comes the food....bone marrow was so delicious and crisp, my husband and I shared the Porterhouse because we like different types of steak which we were told is incorporated in the Porterhouse. Softest, tastiest, juiciest steak ever and oh my..... The spicy corn...yum. The children loved their Mac and cheese and fish and chips. They want to go back here again and again. Enough said. I just want to keep this place all to myself. Not possible now, after I've left this review.

I ordered the rib eye steak. While it was cooked properly medium rare, I felt it was a bit chewier and fattier than I expected. Also, the fact that sides have to be ordered separately is an irritant. Surely, it's not too much to expect a portion of chips to accompany a steak as part of the price.
