We came here to celebrate out 18th wedding anniversary and as we were going to the theatre had an early bird meal. It was magnificent. The staff treated us like honoured guests, helped by the fact that we had the elegant dining room with its magnificent view of St Stephens Green to ourselves. The food matched the surrounding with spectacular... More

Went for a lovely pre theatre dinner. Wasn't hugely excited by the menu when we booked but I was pleasantly surprised. Starter was a choice of 3. 2 came with shell fish so that only left me the 3rd option as I'm allergic to shell fish. Mains we had the duck and monkfish extreme tasty. For desert I went for... More

We also ate here on 13 September and we had an entirely different experience to earlier reviewers dining here on the same night. We were not given the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail in the courtyard (and we did have a cocktail). We were shunted into the back room of the restaurant although we had booked our table weeks before... More

Food and setting were amazing. Worth moving to Dublin for! Service in restaurant was faultless but a little slow in the bar, due to only certain staff knowing how to make the cocktails we had selected. But worth a visit for a treat!

We made a reservation for Restaurant FortyOne based on reviews in TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. We started with a cocktail in the outdoor courtyard. A beautiful setting and great atmosphere. The dining room is very intimate and comfortable. My wife and I decided to share the courgette flower stuffed with scallops and prawns as our starter. We were pleasantly... More

Delicious, beautifully presented food. Very good service in a lovely dining room. Good choice on the lunch set-menu. And a very tasty and vegetarian option. The chef, Graham Neville, clearly cares about each plate as it leaves the kitchen. I had a courgette flower stuffed with scallop and prawn on a beautiful broth of spring greens, the freshest flavours. To... More

We dined at this restaurant based on a recommendation of a frequent Dublin visitor. Its location right on the St. Stephen's Green park makes it very convenient to our hotel and in the center of the city. The building was a former Georgian style home and provides a warm and friendly environment for dining. We both had the salmon with... More

We had the pleasure of dining at The Residence on our last trip to Ireland, and the Restaurant Forty one team made it a truly memorable experience! WOW, was the food good! The atmosphere is gorgeous, chic and warm, the service perfect. Just couldn't have been better.
