A group of friend and I dined here last Saturday night for my 40th birthday. We had a wonderful time. I had dietary requirements which were looked after very well. I was very impressed with the substitutions. The pork belly was a taste sensation. I went for the salmon for main course and it was lovely however my friends ordered the fillet beef and it was actually exquisite (major food envy). The chunky chips there are actually the nicest that I have ever tasted. I loved the hustle and bustle of the restaurant and our starters and mains came out seamlessly and at just the right time. We had such a lovely experience there, I\'ll definitely be back. Major thumbs up for the chunky chips alone!

Rive Gauche
The Parade, Kilkenny, Kilkenny City, Kilkenny

I picked Rive Gauche for my 40th birthday dinner as I had heard great things about it. Our table was booked for 8pm and we were told \"just another 5 minutes, they are preparing your table\" each time I asked. We were eventually seated around 8:40pm and ordered main courses straight away as we were all starving. I had telephoned in dietary requirements and reconfirmed them the day before. Our food started to come out around 9:30pm. My Dad\'s steak came out tough but he was so hungry he just ate it anyway. My \"medium-well to well-done\" steak came out like a chewy old boot. Tough and overcooked. The chips were tasty but there were no sign of the other side orders. I sent back my steak and eventually a fresh one came out that tasted as I would have expected it to i.e. cooked to order. It took another 15 minutes and 2 or 3 reminders to get my side dishes. While the manager was very apologetic, my meal ended up being more like tapas as everything came out at different stages and some were cold by the time the others arrived. The staff were clearly run off their feet however this is a management issue and not good enough considering the prices this gastro-bar is charging. Unfortunately, I won\'t be returning or recommending this place particularly for a special occasion. Such a let down.
