I've heard from many people that Geisha did not get off to a good start - poor, chaotic service and average food at exorbitant prices. I first went with a group of regulars several months after they opened and was very impressed. Perhaps because I was with regulars the manager was very attentive and actively looked for feedback from us. I was pleased with that as it shows they are really trying to keep up with what people want from them and become a top destination. The setting in the marina is spectacular and I loved the bright, open , luxurious interior. I know it's not everyone's taste but it was perfect for our group. Perhaps not for a cosy romantic night.
I must say the service was really slow. We were a gregarious bunch in no hurry so if even we noticed it must be bad! However they could not have been friendlier or more attentive, accommodating several special requests. The sushi was the best I've had in Ireland; as good as I've had in New York, California or even Nobu in London on my one occasion there. I tasted many of the other dishes in our group and found quite a few of them - in particular the fish dishes - to be a little dull, but nothing actually not good. There were also plenty of delicious ones. The sushi was the star for me though.
I'll be going again but must add that I won't be footing the bill so it's easy for me to say :) the setting is truly stunning and the food is very very good - but at those prices it needs to be able to stand up to serious scrutiny to be called excellent
