I've been here twice & both times I was very disappointed!! We booked a table for brunch & were told we'd have the table for an hour & a half!! We were a table of 7 so we were expecting a bit of a delay with the food given the size of the table!! The restaurant wasn't even half full when we ordered but we waited for an hour for brunch to start arriving! & Considering they told us we had the table for an hour & a half - this is a very small window of 30 minutes to eat a main! After an hour the first dish came out!! Then everyone else’s order came out - separately - with a few minutes wait in between each plate!! Needless to say - we were starving after the wait - so manners were forgotten & everyone started their meals as soon as they came out! The 7th dish came out about 25 minutes after the first one - No apologies or explanations!! & By the time the last dish reached the table, 2 of the group were already finished eating! & the last girl had 5 minutes left out of the allotted 1 & 1/2 hour time slot to eat it!!? Ridiculous!!!! My poached eggs were luke warm & rubbery & the 2 pieces of asparagus were over cooked! The potatoes had a nice flavour - but they were barely warm!! The dish was unpleasant at best! I've never eaten in a restaurant where we were all starting our meals at different times at the same table!! I'm tempted to say - Style over substance!! But there was very little style either!!! Very expensive considering the small portions & more then half the menu is made up of eggs & avocado toast - Nothing complicated!!! I've tried it twice - left hungry & disappointed both times! I felt it was a total waste of money & I won't be back!!

Had brunch here before Christmas and it was pretty disappointing. The place is nice and bustling and there's plenty of room if you need to bring a buggy but the food was disappointing. If your meal is part of a section on the menu called "Sourdough Avocado Toasts" then you'd expect a lot more than just a thin scraping of avocado mousse on the bread. I would have expected slices or at least it to be thick enough on there that it's the main ingredient in the dish and not a barely noticable smear like butter. They might as well not have put any on it at all for how much was there. It's pretty expensive at 15 euro for that too and wasn't all that tasty. On the plus side the staff were really attentive and pleasant.

We arrived without having made a booking and were advised that we would have to be out by 8.00 we shared a pizza and salad. Both were very nice, but pizza was a little shy on the chicken. It was good value and service was excellent.

more style than substance. It was my first time here. I really liked the décor, atmosphere, setting and service. I had the scallops to start which themselves were good but the sauce was not hot. The fish came in a 'soup' which meant that while the skin was originally crisp and pan fried it was slimy but the time I got it. The ideas for the food were good the execution was poor however and expensive. I would come back here for Pizza and a glass of wine or beer but otherwise the food quality and execution doesn't live up to the price.

Had brunch here today with my friend, best brunch we have tried so far in Dublin. Food was unbelievably good and really decent portions for the price. Value for money and the coffee was delicious. Lots of bigger groups of men and women and with the choice on the menu I can why it appeals. Will be back!

I had a girls lunch here y'day & it was delicious. The only fault I could see was the furniture was quite dusty. The back of the booths were stacked with dust which was unfortunate. Staff were lovely apart from manager who seems quite abrupt and not very warm. Not sure if I will be back.

Had a brunch for a colleague who was leaving work. cant recommend the place enough. Great New York vibe and the staff were great. Food and cocktails were amazing. Also bonus points for putting my friends name on the menus! A must for brunch.

Made a reservation in Angelinas for myself and friend for a Friday evening at 5.30. The restaurant was pretty quiet at that time but really picked up by 7 and was wedged by 9pm. My friend and I ordered a Main each, a side each of the Italian Parmesan Fries which were incredible and 2 desserts . I had the Sea Bream which was super tasty and my friend had the Lamb Pizza which looked very appetising. The menu is fairly decent in price range and something there for most for diet requirements. They have a pretty good wine list with a good few options by the glass, and a great cocktail and mocktail menu. I do have to say the décor and staff are what made the evening for me though. The restaurant looks like a pinterest board (in a good way) and the staff were super friendly. As mentioned we got there at 5.30 and no one pushed us to leave. Our waiter approached us at 9.15 to say they needed the table but was so apologetic, he showed us to seats at the bar where our recent drinks order was there waiting for us. Lovely service, lovely food and great atmosphere and décor - i will def be back!
