Great staff, awesome menu, delicious meal!!

A local recommended this spot to us as we visit from Canada. What a perfect spot for dinner out and the high praise we had heard about this spot is warranted. Our server Eiliesh was awesome, and host Tommy delightful. We do hope to dine here again in June as we head back to Dublin after touring... read more

The place was pretty packed as everything last weekend, but we managed to get a table outside. The brunch was amazing and the portion was huge! We went for extra sides but we did not finish them in the end.Not the best hollandaise sause I've ever had but deffinatelly the most well presented dish, Reservations are higly recommended.

Sadly to say , but the quality of steak at the restaurant was very, very disappointing for 34 euro ( or for any dollar amount frankly). They served really bad prepared ( dry, tough, no flavor) meat that was not evenly cooked. As a marketed "steak house", I would strongly suggest this place review the quality of meat served (...

Went to Whitefriar Grill for breakfast after a night out in Dublin. It was packed but we got a table. The staff were really friendly, and the food was great! It came out really quickly, was presented well and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend.

Booking is essential as it was packed. Nice decor and friendly staff always checking if we were ok. The spicy wing starter was a decent portion for 2. Lovely coating (I need that recipe!). We both ordered the Steak and Rib combo for main and the steak was amazing! Much better than we thought it would be. Cooked exactly how... More

Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant on Aungier Street and the first night we tried the wait would have been over 2 hours! The next night we had better luck and can understand its popularity with both tourists and locals. The food is delicious and the service is prompt and efficient.

Last weekend on a Irish Times rewarding voucher we were in The Whitefriar,for a lovely dinner. Our waiter ( Brian or Ben not sure) was very good excellent service he explained how the voucher worked so there were no misunderstandings, the starters ( chicken wings and curried crab salad ) were ok, but the mains were absolutely beautiful, my partner...

Went for dinner with Friends. Arrived at 7pm and table ready for us. The place was quite packed and during the course of our meal many people came and went. I haven't been here for brunch but I hear it is excellent. We were greeted by a very friendly front of house manager who took our coats and seated us.... More

On a wet Friday evening the greeting from the team at Whitefriar lifts the spirits (Prosecco laced with Italian hazelnut lacquer won over our hearts). There was a full house but the easy rapport among the efficient staff ensured that everything runs smoothly. We enjoyed starters of a chilli flavoured Squid and a delicious Boudin Noir tart. We opted for... More
