On the expensive side but a lovely cosy place to have a meal. The lamb is delicious and cocktails are to die for!

As a party of four including an American, we thought Matt the Threshers would be ideal to experience Irish food. We ended up being very disappointed. Having been seated, we were informed there were no oysters or mussels. When we placed our order, we were informed that vegetables were not available, leaving one of our party to enjoy his steak with a side of chips and mash potatoes, for want of other options. The waitress than informed us there was no squid either. For a place referred to as a Seafood Bar and Grill, there was little evidence there of, and with our choice so limited, we did not enjoy our meal as much as we had hoped. As we left the restaurant, we noticed a local supermarket was still open. Surely such an oversight as a lack of vegetables could have been prevented.

The Woollen Mills
42 Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

I very rarely feel compelled to leave a review about a restaurant, however my experience today was such that I feel I have no choice. Today was my third time going to the woollen mills. It has such a convenient location and thus suited everyone I was meeting. This was our primary reason for choosing this establishment. It is expensive, and we were meeting for a quick lunch. We chose to slum it on the benches in the Café area rather than splurge on a proper lunch. We all wanted sandwiches. One of the party, a self-confessed fussy eater, wanted a plain chicken sandwich and this was not possible.The waitress kindly explained that all the sandwiches are made up before the lunchtime rush, and preparing a plain chicken sandwich at the customers request was thus not possible. I could go on a massive rant here. However I'll summarise myself in a few points: 1. Why would you pay ten euro for a sandwich that was made 2-3 hours ago? 2. What kind of restaurant in this part of the developed world does not make provisions for people with 'allergies', 'intolerances' or even PREFERENCES? 3. I refer the staff to the phrase 'The customer is always right'. 4. I had the turkey sandwich on ciabatta and it is definitely not the best sandwich in Dublin. 5. I did have turkey schnitzel here before with brussel sprouts and chestnuts that was delicious. 6. Selection of cheese not great but the dessert selection was good. 7. Coffee is good. In conclusion, good food(ish) but a terrible customer experience. I will do my best to avoid in future.
