Very disappointing experience in this restaurant.I am coeliac and I had a 3 course meal.i enjoyed the lamb skewers starter and my rib eye was delicious.However,I became very unwell after eating the GF Lemon tart and I asked to speak to the manager.I was met with extreme defensiveness and rudeness and was assured the tart was gluten free.the issue of cross contamination seemed alien to her.i have never been treated so badly as a coeliac in a restaurant and left in severe pain.i was assured of a follow up call and email which I did not receive.i will never return here.all coeliacs please avoid!!

If you are a coeliac,do not come here!!!probably the worst experience I have had in a restaurant since my coeliac diagnosis especially due to the defensive manner of the lady that dealt with my complaint!! I am very sensitive coeliac and I became very unwell after eating the "gluten free" lemon tart.When I complained )I was met with extreme defensiveness and was guaranteed all the food I ate was gluten free.why was I bent over with severe cramps then?No responsibility was taken by the restaurant for my ill health.avoid this restaurant at all costs if you are coeliac!!I would never return!

The Lo-Cal Kitchen
Unit 4 Phoenix Park Racecourse, West Dublin, Castleknock, Dublin

What a rip off!!!i know there\'s healthy eating but I also know when I am being totally ripped off!!2 tiny wholemeal pancakes for my 4 year old cost me €3.95!!this price cannot be justified,whether it\'s wholemeal or even if it was gluten free or dairy free etc.As a coeliac i make GF pancakes often and the cost is only slightly more than regular pancakes.approached the owner with my complaint,where she just walked away from me as I was speaking,no professionalism shown whatsoever.my advice,don\'t eat here.way overpriced for the tiny portion you get.i won\'t be returning.

Pichet
14/15 Trinity Street, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

Wow,one of the best culinary experiences I have had in Dublin!! The atmosphere is great,the service is excellent and the food is exceptional,michelin star quality!! My husband and I went here about a month and a half ago and we were not disappointed. I had the gnocchi to start and my partner had the risotto,both were delicious and cooked to perfection.For mains I had the sea bream with scallops and my husband had the cod,both were fantastic! The desserts were also yummy especially the cheesecake,can't wait to return.I can see this restaurant getting a Michelin star in the near future, watch this space............

Excellent restaurant and well worth the visit from Dublin.My husband and I both had the smoked haddock and poached egg starter,delicious! I had the lamb for main course which was so tender and cooked medium as requested.My partner had the duck which was equally delicious.We both could not resist the lime parfait with strawberry soup for dessert and we weren't disappointed,it was yummy.Overall,it was a fantasic dining experience.The staff were lovely and there was a great buzz in the place.The interior is lovely too and very well laid out and designed.We will certainly be paying a return visit asap!!

The Tannery Restaurant
Quay Street, Dungarvan, Waterford

My husband and I went to the Tannery on the bank holiday saturday.The restaurant is really nice with a lovely waiting area to have a drink and browse at the menu.The food was nice,my only complaint was that all courses were luke warm but not hot.We had the smoked venison and crab brulee starters,both of which were lovely.For mains,I had the scallops,they were nice but again luke warm and there was only 5 small scallops which cost €30! My partner had the quail and foie gras pie but the foie gras was jelly like and not that nice.The desserts were lovely.I had the passion fruit semi-freddo and my husband had the poached pear with gingerbread ice-cream.Overall it was a good meal but not mind blowing!!

Eatzen Chinese Restaurant
Unit 1, Clonee Village CentreMain Street, Clonee, Clonee, Dublin

I went here with my husband for the early value menu,2 courses for €15(Mon-Thurs),great value.The staff are excellent,so friendly and polite.The food is also excellent.I had the sweet and sour soup while my partner had the crispy chicken wings for starters,both were lovely.For main course I had the duck curry,it was so crispy with little fat on it.My husband had the chicken satay which was equally delicious.I also enjoyed a half bottle of a lovely South African sauvignon blanc.I will be returning more often to this restaurant.

WILDE
The Westbury, Grafton Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

My husband and I went here as part of the dine in dublin week,€30 for 4 courses,and we weren't disappointed.The service was excellent,the only complaint here was the service was too quick and we did feel somewhat rushed.However,the food was delicious.I had the wild mushroom tart to start and my partner had the lobster bisque,both lovely.My sea bream was equally good for main course.( I cannot recall what my partner had for main course! )For dessert,I had the creme brulee and my partner had the black forest roulade,again both desserts were very nice.When leaving,I was given a little bag that had salt and pepper steak seasoning which I thought was a lovely touch.I would definetly eat here again.

The Dining Room
35 Dawson Street, City Centre South, Dublin

What a disappointment! My husband and I came here on a Wednesday evening for the dine in dublin week.We were about 30 minutes late but we did ring the restaurant to tell them.We were met with a very frosty reception by a female waitress who did not even have the courtesy to take our coats, as we passed a coat rack full of other diner's coats.We were brought to seats crammed right beside other couples where you could hear all their conversations clearly.The atmosphere from the waiting staff was so cold and impersonal.The food was only average.The couscous that accompanied the lamb was totally bland and did not compliment the lamb at all.Amazingly my partner's sea bass was very good. However, we both had the panna cotta for dessert.The rhubarb topping was way too sweet and ruined the entire dessert.Overall, we were extremely disappointed with this dining experience and we will never go back again!!

Ivans Oyster Bar & Grill
17 - 18 West Pier, Howth, Dublin

I went to Howth Easter Monday and I really liked the lunch menu on display at Ivan's oyster bar and grill, also good value at €30 for 4 courses.The food was very good.My husband and I both had the scallops to start,heaven on a plate! I had rare yellow tuna, I must admit I misinterpreted the term "rare" as being a rare breed of tuna and instead it was rare in culinary terms.I would have preferred it more well cooked.I have never eaten fresh tuna before!) My partner had deep fried haddock,the batter was so light and crispy and the chips were perfectly seasoned.The desserts did not disappoint either with lemon parfait and pistachio cake ending the meal nicely.The service was very good initially but slowed as the restaurant got busier,but it was easy to get the attention of a passing member of staff.Overall, it was a lovely lunch and we will definetly return when in Howth again.

Jaipur Restaurant (Ongar)
Unit 35 and 39, Main Street, Ongar village, Dublin 15, Clonee, Dublin

I live in Ongar and I have been to Jaipur here so many times I have lost count.The staff know me now from going there so often and they are always so friendly.The food has always been delicious, I would recommend the sea bass and duck tikka starters, to name but a few.One of my favourite main courses is the lamb shank,the meat is so tender.The wine selection is also excellent with the Oyster Bay Rosé one of my favourites.All the food is excellent and if you feel like this culinary experience at home,a takeaway menu is also available.I always look forward to my return visit to Jaipur.

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill
51 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Dawson Street, Dublin

My husband and I went here on a Wednesday evening.There was a nice buzz in the place,although I have to agree with the previous reviewer that the tables are very close together,more so than when it was solely Fitzers.We waited nearly 45 minutes for our starters but they were worth waiting for.I had the potted duck and my husband had the asparagus,both of which were delicious.The main courses arrived too quickly,within seconds of our starters being cleared.We both had rib eye,one cep rubbed and the other with bernaise sauce,they were delicious.I had 2 glasses of a lovely french rose.For dessert, I had my favourite,creme brulee which was nice and my partner had Eton mess which was nice also but no wow factor with the desserts!!

Forchetta Italian Grill & Restaurant
Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown, Blanchardstown Town Centre, West Dublin, Blanchardstown, Dublin

I went to Fochetta on the 7th of March with my husband and family.Firstly I was well impressed with the interior of the restaurant which was covered with paintings of forks and fork displays,hence the name of the restaurant!! The staff were very friendly and the food and wine were very good even down to the cool shaped wine glasses.We had varied starters including the suppli,zuppe and mushrooms on garlic bread,all very tasty.For main courses we had between us, baramundi,sea bass,chicken and steaks,all washed down with some refreshing pinot grigio.Overall it was a great dining experience,so much so i am heading again Sat night with my friends,can't wait!
