10 of us dined in the almost private area between restaurant and bar. Staff here are so helpful and caring. The food was amazing. The wines delicious and it was perfectly priced. Highly recommend Gleesons. We are a fussy lot (it seems) and everyone was happy. Thanks to all.

Always consistent nice food but I think they should have a few more specials on as there was only a special fish dish.

Lovely lunch with plenty of options. Had a delicious Caeser Salad which I'd go back for again. Plenty of tables available in either the bar or restaurant. Service is a little slow so if you're in a rush get the bill when you order. Otherwise it's a great place for a long lunch in a relaxed atmosphere.

Lovely food by and large, some course better than others. A bit pricey for what it is and I feel would do a lot more business if they reduced prices or had specials. Children's selection is good. This is/was a pub after all so don't expect crystal glasses, silver service and fresh flowers on the tables, the waitresses are nice (usually and if not stressed out which sometimes happens as they get caught out with numbers) without having the extra buzz and interest in their work that I love to see...How about more of the "good evening, I'm X and I'm looking after you this evening"...overall we go there a bit and like it but would love it if we see three things change...more specials/early birds or reduced prices, friendlier/more welcoming waitresses and better cutlery.

I went for a celebration dinner with my mother and grandmother, and we were not disappiointed! The food was beautiful, with a great variety. We all had different starters and main courses and everything was delicious! Our waitress was very helpful and pleasant, the ambience was relaxed and we all enjoyed ourselves very much.

Heard great reports abut Gleesons - but what a disappointment. Maybe Satuday nights are too busy and the staff cannot cope because the service was terrible. We sat down at about 8.30pm but it was 9.45pm before we got our main courses. There seemed to be confusion as to who was doing what. There didn't seem to be anyone in charge. It was a very busy night and maybe someone didn't turn in for work. When the wine was delivered we asked for tap water, the glasses arrived but no water. It took about 15 to 20 mins before the water arrived (we had to ask for it) The food was typical pub grub and we had no complaints about the quality of our food. The house reds were prices from 23.95 upwards (I know there is a €1 extra tax) but thought it was maybe €1 to €2 euros over what others are offering. This is a very busy pub and restaurant an I feel they are letting themselves down with tardiness of the service.

I have visited Gleesons quite often and have never found any faults with their food. It may be a bit expensive - but other than that it is a great place to eat with a nice atmosphere. They serve great food and (usually) provide great service - it's certainly worth checking out.

Have passed by Gleeson's many times on my walking route so decided I would check it out so I brought my dad here for a post- Father's Day dinner. We got there about 7.30 pm and it was a bit quiet (although it was a Monday evening.) I ordered the duck spring roll which came with a sweet chilli sauce for starters and my dad ordered the tiger prawns. We both enjoyed them. For mains I got the chicken peri peri with rice. The chicken was delicious, very tender and had just the right spicey flavour (reminded me a bit of cajun). The rice was a bit bland if i'm being honest and tasted as if it had been re-heated. Dad got the special which was plaice. He said it was nice but felt like the vegetables were a bit overcooked. Overall I thought the food was nice but I've had nicer elsewhere for the same price or less. However the major plus to this place that would make me want to return is the service which was brilliant (our waitress was very friendly and attentive). Also its handy for something quick to eat after work on a Friday and before you want to have a few beers in the bar!

Was here for a family meal on saturday and the service was excellent; friendly and attentive. The meal itself was only ok. Fish cake left a lot to be desired; nicely presented but a small portion and I found it quite bland. I opted for roast beef and it came with just one roast potato, a tiny amount of gravy and then a MASSIVE yorkshire pudding. It was almost the size of a football. Totally bizarre. We asked for vegetables to go with it and were given chips, boiled potatoes and boiled carrots. Not exactly your 5-a-day! The sticky toffee pudding was good.

I went here witha few friends as it was handy for all of us... It was busy enough customer wise and was obviously very popular with midlle aged clients. From my last visit here, i was pleased to note the addition of a 2 course lunch special which included some of the choices from the main lunch menu, along with what I would call a "bar menu"... my 4 friends all started with deep fried brie, whilst I opted for the smoked salmon to start - certainly the standard of food was high... 2 of my fellow diners chose a quiche dish, and the other 2 rib eye steak, I had the plaice which I found to be well cooked and had been done "to order" the vegetables that arrived had the "done earlier" taste - a selection of cauliflower, mashed potatoes (even though my dish had chive mash under the fish) and carrots... we had also ordered other side orders which arrived on the table were hot. My only gripe was that one of our servers seemed to have had other things on their mind... customers and their plates of food could be appreciated more in these "difficult" times - Yes I would go back, and if you are in the area I would recomend their steaks and fish dishes during lunch!!

Gleeson's, with its plush location on Booterstown Avenue, appears to still adhere to the concept that it's justifiable to charge Celtic Tiger prices for its pub grub and drink. The 8 euro for a couple of slices of fried brie and 17 euro for deep fat fried goujons, I grudgingly paid to the sluggish waitress, does not represent proper value for money in a public house. Although this may be acceptable to the maturing D4 rugby fans that invariably populate the place it is a rather mean spirited gesture toward us non sporty,house renting types. Atmospherically, Gleeson's compares well with other establishments but until it prepares to offer a real reason to dine in its environs it will remain a mere miniscule footnote in my black book of critique.

I've eaten here a few times during the evening and it's always good. Atmosphere is a little stuffy - the sort of place your grandparents would love. Good offering on the menu covering your normal meat fair to fish and even Asian, so a group of fussy eaters should be catered for. Staff is friendly and service prompt. A little on the pricey side, but all in all okay value for money. Live close by and handy place to walk to with friends, so I'll be back.

Lunch here is very popular and if you don't get in early you won't get a parking space in the car park. I tend to just have soup/sandwiches (average) for lunch or the chicken/bacon caeser salad (get the dressing on the side as they always put too much on). The hot menu is good but probably a bit too much for me for lunch.
