Had alovely meal here on a weekend break. You would say the portions are very small but you feel full after the courses. Service was excellent. The décor and surroundings are lovely. I look forward to eating here again.

Best hotel meal I've ever had! This restaurant really deserves credit...It was the best part of our hotel stay. Ate here as part of our hotel package and enjoyed the meal so much. Goats cheese and confit of duck for starters which were both beautiful and beautifully presented. These were followed by two steaks cooked to perfection with a generous side of veg and potato. The chocolate trio dessert was to die for and the service was outstanding. Would highly recommend.

Had a lovely meal in Reeds on a Saturday night, while staying nearby in Wexford. My Smoked Salmon starter was terrific, and the wife's Pate was good, if a little dry for our taste. My Roast Lamb was lovely, while my wife's Seafood Plate was tasty and generous. Nice bottle of reasonably priced wine, before finishing with two good desserts and coffee. We had dressed up for dinner, and the dining room and service were stylish and elegant. A lovely night out.

Dropped in with the Kids for afternoon meal at this really nice Hotel. The food was really really good. The kids all loved it and cleared there plates. I also loved it and went back a few days later for more of the same. Very nice choice on the menu and very good value as well. Options include main joint of the day, burgers, steak sandwiches etc. Staff and service were ok and would recommend. Very good food.

Stopped off for evening bar food at this popular Wexford Hotel beautifully situated overlooking the Slaney estuary on the road back to Dublin. The bar and restaurant are on the ground floor when you enter the building. Bar was very noisy with kids etc so we asked to eat outside on the terrace to be told that they weren’t serving food there. Luckily there was a much quieter adults only snug adjoining the main bar, were we eat some really good bar food. Very nice choice on the menu and good value as well. Options include main joint of the day, burgers, duck steak sandwiches etc. Staff and service were very good would def recommend. Hotel is starting to look a bit dated in areas but still can’t beat the location!

I went to this restaurant with a group of people last night. While the setting is nice, the evening's experience was disappointing in relation to both the food and the service. For my meal I ordered mussels in a white wine sauce for starters and cod in a tomato herb crust with pesto for main course. The mussels were nice but the bread that came with it was not. The cod was very dry and the tomatoes were just slices laid on top of it which didn't add to the taste, The was no sauce but just pesto on the plate which left the meal very dry and bland. The side orders were very poor which a little bowl of boiled veg which felt more like something that should be served with Sunday lunch and not a Saturday evening dinner. The staff were very friendly but the service was poor throughout the meal. We had to ask for one of the starters when it didn't arrive and the main course came out before the starters were cleared away. I didn't have dessert but I did taste some of my friends desserts. On doing so, I was glad I hadn't ordered my own. With many high quality restaurants in Wexford, I'm afraid Reeds doesn't match the opposition.

Solid restaurant for a hotel. Nothing overly spectacular food wise but competently made and no evidence of major corner cutting. The service is satisfactory but the wine list is poor and the menu did not show tremendous evidence of seasonality. The staff also seemed to know very little about food or the wines on the list. We ate here as a party of 8 and overall we were content with the experience. I would say it is overpriced by about 20% relative to the overall experience and execution of the food. The location is stunning however and what you may pay extra for over other places is on the whole worth it.

Ate at Reeds on a Sunday evening. The views over the bay are stunning and the food matched the views! We shared a starter which was enormous and delicious - so be warned unless you are particularly hungry! The main courses of chicken stuffed with a chorizo mix on were delicious and the side veggies were fresh and very tasty.The wine menu was varied but pricey,but then there was that wonderful view to pay for I suppose! The hotel also offer a very good bar menu which is excellent value. We had a lunch on Monday from the bar menu and enjoyed the variety of salads on offer.We were seated outside on the terrace of "The Locker Room Bar" and could'nt help but be charmed by those stunning views again).

Woeful, is the only way I can describe our meal in Reeds (in stark contrast to the superb meal we had in the Potato Market the next night). Prices were high for what we got - €12 for a few minute scallops. The pasta my husband had was very average. My steak, described as "prime sirloin" was the low quality you'd expect from a cheap British pub chain. What made it worse was the poor service - tap water poured (and spilled, with no apology) without us asking, though we had asked for a bottle of sparkling / steak served on mashed potato (not mentioned on the menu) though I'd told the waitress I don't like mash / no-one to ask for vinegar for ages (though it was brought quickly when I was able to ask) / cheese served with a spoon and fork, no knife!!

Went here for my brothers birthday, was lucky to get a window seat and access to a beautiful view. I got the chowder for starter and the chicken for the main. Both very nice, and good atmosphere and service. Would recommend.
