Crackbird has opened in its new home on Dame st. The location is bigger, brighter and bang on a busy street, but the beloved menu based around fabulous fried chicken and sides is not much changed. There’s a few new dishes to try, and a new lunch and late night selection.

dropped by last night and was literally about to walk back out when someone finally came over to us, no table for 10/15 mins if you want to wait at the bar, - no problem, waited at the bar no one serving drinks for 15 mins until we got our table, I loved the idea of the place though, good atmosphere with hip ambiance, menu was ok, could be more inventive and better meal options/sides etc.. the food (Chicken part) was very good however, really good flavours on the chicken but the sides let it down, slaw and croquettes were average, the wings were nice, the biggest issue was how under staffed it was, it was totally understaffed and for this reason alone i won't be back soon, theres nothing worse than no being attended to, the staff that were on however were nice but to rushed off their feet for the place to function well. a rating of very average, but the place has potential

We had the Full Bird it was really excellent The sweet potato noodles and the sweet potato Paprika and Bacon salad with the Chicken Brochette it was probably the nicest salad I've ever had. The staff were OK sometimes very attentive sometime not. They weren't very busy so there was no excuse.

So Crackbird's chicken wings were amazing! the only disappointment was the lack of side options. I love ordering side salads with that much meat. Plus I think sweet potatoes fries and homemade chips would be a great add. They had potato croquettes but they were nothing special. But back to the chicken.....superb :) Service great, staff friendly. Price average for Dublin city.

The soy fried wings in acts bird are without a doubt the best chicken wings in Dublin. Throw in the reasonable prices, delicious and varied sides - croquettes, chipotle beans, slaw, baked potato etc - and lovely drinks and you have yourself a fantastic meal. Never disappoints.

Overpriced and pretentious! Asked for mayonnaise with my large very dry baked potato and was told "we're too alternative for mayonnaise". In Ryanair type sales technique was then directed to crack bird dips at 2.50 each. Another recycled wood, jam jar instead of glasses using up its own....sort of place. Pricey too!

Little pricey but worth it for the food. The chicken is fab! though if you're in the mood for anything but chicken this isn't the place for you.

Quite nice and of similar value to nandos, but far far nicer. Better quality of meat all round. Whipped feta dip ftw.

Slightly cold atmosphere when entering, and colder inside, no heating, most people were sitting with their coats on but the staff seemed warm because they had t-Shirts on as they were running around like headless"chickens". The drinks came quickly and the food as well, we ordered the jalapeño dip which was yummy with bread and crudités. The wings were not impressing but the soy chicken was delicious and the slaw was yummy. Beans were hot! Delicious. Had it not been so cold inside we'd have stayed a bit longer, but maybe that's the whole idea, get us in and out quickly. Strange Japanese decor!

If you're stuck in Dublin on a Saturday night without a reservation, then Crackbird, Jo Burger or Skinflint (all the same chain) should be your first port of call for a good evening. You may need to wait for a table but the food is always great quality and it won't cost you an arm and a leg. All these three restaurants, from the same chain, are quite the hipsters place with good music and truly minimalistic menus. Jo Burger has the better options, Skinflints Pizzas are great and I thought that Crackbird would be great as a 'chicken' themed restaurant. But the menu is disjointed (some things are for lunch, some dinner) and there is a distinct lack of sides (chips should be on the menu!). I would have thought that wraps would have been a simple addition. Plus there are no desserts which was a surprise but then this is a hipster joint with quick turn around of clients. The staff are very efficient but they don't talk to you or even smile. You really have to work hard to order a second beer, as they never come by to see how you are getting on. Seems a bit like a food factory more than a restaurant. But I've been to worse places! However, Crackbird is good for a one off night but I recommend their other restaurants for more choice.

When I arrived after my friend no waiter came to me or greeted me or even offered me a menu. Waiter/waitresses aren't attentive at all. Food is good, but over priced, with drinks hugely overpriced. It isnt very comfortable, quite dark, and hard to hear your company speak. Not overly keen, but tasty food.

I was really looking forward to giving Crackbird a try having heard lots of really good things about it. A group of 5 of us decided to chance going in early on Saturday evening around 6:30pm to try and get a table and we were seated straight away which was great. We would have been happy to sit at the bar either way, but I'd say this area gets a bit crowded if there are a few groups waiting to be seated - okay for couples though! We each ordered a main course and shared a few sides. The croquettes were amazing as were the sweet potato noodles (although the name is a tad misleading as it sounded like it was going to be noodles of sweet potato, but instead was just noodles made from sweet potato flour), the carrot salad was also really tasty. We also ordered the portion of 3 sauces - the feta and burnt lemon is really good. If there hadn't been a few of us getting things between us, this would have gotten a little pricy, but it was nice to be able to sample all of the dishes. The atmosphere was very relaxed and buzzy, the music was a little loud, but it seemed like a place you would go before going on somewhere else so it gets you in the mood! The bill was €24 each including service, this included x2 carafes of wine and one of their non-alcoholic spritzers. We thought this was reasonable as we'd had a load of food. Striking a couple of marks off for service though. Our server was a nice guy, attentive and was helpful with the dishes, but I think he was probably having an off day! He brought us the wrong bill initially, and then charged us for one of the sides we ordered but didn't turn up (we didn't question it because there was a tonne of food on the table), and then said we left him short of money, but when he added again, realised that we were right! It wouldn't put me off revisiting and hope to do so in the future.

I dined in Crackbird with my boyfriend on Saturday night and was very impressed. It is a great place for a bite to eat before heading out. Really good chicken! Pleasant staff also. It was very busy on Saturday night and its not possible to book so we had a drink at the bar and were seated within 30 minutes of arriving at the restaurant. Good value and big portions also.

very nice restaurant, nice layout, pleasant staff, really good portion of soy garlic half chicken, very tasty and chesse croquettes were ok, my mate had the chicken dipper styles pieces and got plenty of them for the price, we were both happily full. chicken doesn't come with sides and enjoyed that chips weren't available so ad to try something new. reasonably priced too, similar to nandos but nicer. good beers too, some new craft ones. average spend for a mainside and a drink would be just over 20e.
