5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

A return visit with the family quickly showed that the standards are being maintained, lunch or dinner are recommended.

“Too expensive for a steak and chips”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

For a celebrity chef restaurant this is average food was steak and chips green salad was oily service was only ok. 4 people 4 mains, 2 starters, 3 desserts, 2 bottle of wines, coffees 330 euros. Marco should spend more time visiting his restaurant than posing for photos.

“Well below expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

After a great rugby match at the Aviva stadium, we were sadlly disappointed by our meal at the Marco Pierre White steakhouse. We were aware it would be on the expensive side but were happy to pay in the hope of a good steak. Their Irish steak was poor quality, not enjoyable. Strange, because it seemed to be cooked OK so must have been the quality of the meat. We sat outside. The overhead heaters created a furnace directly above our heads and those of the neaby tables, leaving us sweating over our meal. I noticed the couple beside us also didn't finish their meal so don't think it was just us. Awful. If you want good food (but variable service), try Rolys in Ballsbridge.
