My boyfriend and I love steak so we were very excited to try Featherblade. I had made a reservation and when we walked in we were greeted and seated straight away. The menu is minimal which is great and they change it regularly. We had a starter of pork belly with black pudding and shared it. It was just delicious. When we got our steaks we were thrilled it was cooked to perfection. So tender and full of flavour. The only issue we had was the seats. After a half an hour or so they are really uncomfortable. Also could I recommend you have Peppercorn sauce without the whiskey as the whiskey is very over powering. All in all we were very happy and we are looking forward to going back.

Was really looking forward to trying out Featherblade, we are big steak lovers. On first arrival thought the place looked great, liked the simple relaxed decor. When we were seated, it was obvious there were way to many settings in a small space. our chair and the chair of the person at the table behind us were back to back, in a walk way meaning my partners chair was kicked a good 20 times throughout the meal. We decided to forgo the starters as I have sweet tooth and wanted to leave space for dessert. We both chose the signature featherblade steak, one with whiskey peppercorn and one with garlic chilli. The steak came to the table extremely quickly, it was tender and cooked to order but a little salty for my tastes. If i had known it would come with rock salt over it I would have asked for it without. I was so disappointed with the sauces, the whiskey peppercorn was sickly sweet and the chilli garlic was not enjoyable at all. We also ordered the G&T off the menu, as we are both big in to our gin. I took two sips and abandoned it, it had a burning after taste of chemicals and was undrinkable. After our plates were cleared, I asked for the dessert menu and waited 20mins, eventually caught the hostess' eye and asked again. At this point I had intended to say I was dissatisfied with my drink, as I think its better to say this at the time instead of running online to post a review but I never got the opportunity. The menu was left and no conversation was had, and no apology for the long wait. Ordered one of each of the desserts and they were they nicest part of the meal, considering its a steak place I'm not sure this is a good thing. Unfortunately, I wont be recommending it or going back. Food was average and the service wasn't good

We had a fabulous meal here tonight. The staff were very welcoming. ..It was a set menu with choice of 2 starters 2 mains sides and 2 desserts. If you are a meat lover you must try this place. I could not fault anything. starter was a choice of crispy chicken or crab. Mains was feather blade steak or marinated hanger and dessert was posset or chocolate tart ....everything was so well prepared and tasty . steaks were cooked exactly to our likening..The posset was absolutely beautiful ...chocolate tart was very heavy but if you love dark chocolate you would love this. Starters were very tasty too. set menu was €32...really good value and I will definitelying will be back again ..complements to chef and staff

This new restaurant is well worth a visit! It is a great example of a small menu done really well. Atmosphere is buzzy and background music is a well chosen mix. A good, well priced house wine would be a welcome addition. We will be back!

Good atmosphere and great food. Very good business idea to just do one thing but do it very well (although there was a special on offer on the night of a different type of steak). Great service too.

As soon as we walked in the door, we were very looked after here - the hostess was great. The steaks alone are delicious - juicy and full of flavour, however the sides really stole the show. The spinach was my favourite, with the mac 'n' cheese a close second. The béarnaise sauce was probably the best - the pepper one was slightly too overpowering for my taste. Will definitely be back again.

Meat lovers listen up: this place is a must try! They have a very small and well thought out well executed menu that will leave you satiated and smiling! I had the featherblade medium rare and man was it juicy and tender, not an easy thing to do with tough cuts of the bovine. The sides of truffle mac n cheese also didn't disappoint, tenderstem broccoli was grilled to perfection, and the best chips in town cooked in beef drippings which stayed crispy till the very last bit! Only pity that I didn't realise they had starters written on the blackboard and not on the menu. Would've tried the confit chicken dish too. Next time I will! BTW, not the kind of place for vegetarians.
