I really felt that, even with a reservation but not being a recognisable regular, we seemed to be marked out as tourists taking in a tasting at a Dublin haunt. This was reinforced when l expressed an interest in trying an Irish wine (there are...only 3 in the country that l know of, and hard to come by as they take time to mature and volume if production are low). I was told it wasn't a match for what l had ordered.
I had to explain my interest and l was then given only a sample, probably because how dare I drink it without the appropriate food match!
To reinforce our failings as customers, the table next to us complained that a wine had been corked, and our waitress, in a loud manner, was effusive in commending them on noticing same, whilst she produced complimentary glasses, throwing looks at me as she did so!
To be honest, such rude service negated the food, the wine, the riverside setting.
Jog on. I won't be back when covid is done.More
Friendy and knowledgeable staff, great location, we arrived early but without reservation they managed to squeeze us in (party of 2) excelent menu choice and ambience, would suggest booking ahead as was quite full by the time we had finished, recommend strongly
Booked this restaurant with friends who were visiting from London. I requested window seat (overlooking The Liffey). The whole experience from start to finish was excellent. Our waiter was everything you would want from a waiter; welcoming, very informative about menu and complimentary wines. The...food was delicious, atmosphere buzzy. Perfect.More
We visited on Saturday Feb 15th. The Restaurant was fairly busy and buzzing. We were seated very promptly and the service throughout the evening was very good, efficient without being rushed. The starters were very nice and for main I had a medium rare Rib...Eye. It was cooked perfectly. Linda had the Venison and again it was cooked rare, as it should be. We indulged in desserts and they were both very nice. We had a really good value Red with our food. Price wise and food wise, it was all great. We will be backMore
I enjoyed my meal here with friends - I had the potted crab starter - absolutely delicious, then the lamb medallion as main course - melt in the mouth, delicious lamb! I didnt care for the lamb tongue fritter or the courgettes that came with...it but the potatoes with it were awesome. For dessert as a chocolate fan I was disappointed that the only chocolatey thing they had was a chocolate and pecan tart. Other reviewers mentioned their chocolate mousse cake but that was not available, so I had to settle for the tart which was wasn't very chocolatey and didnt taste that great. The meal is extremely pricey, with 3 courses ala carte coming to 55 Euros for just me, minus any drinks. Apparently their wine selection is awesome but I dont drink so it didnt matter to meMore
Such a lovely evening with friends in The Winding Stair recently. The food iscalways good and they really have it right with the atmosphere and lighting.
Loses one star as it took 15 mins to get our coffees after dinner and the safron mussel sauce...on the cod had 4 little mussels in it. All around, great meal!! Their desserts are to die for!More
Visited on a Friday night, had a table booked at 8pm, it was buzzing as we arrived and the atmosphere remained even as the tables started to clear out.
The food was excellent, I had the jerusalem artichoke blini to start and the smoked haddock...as a main and thoroughly enjoyed both. We shared a cheeseboard and a couple of glasses of port which were again very good.
The wine list is extensive, you are presented with an enormous book on arrival, but there are also a number of wines available by the glass printed on the blackboard.
The only slight downside was that there were a couple of occasions where we had to ask twice for something, and as catching the eye of waiting staff in the first place was something of a challenge this did mean that we felt a little frustrated. They were very polite and friendly, however, and it didn't really affect the evening.More
Wonderful meal! We returned to this restaurant to celebrate my son’s birthday and had a fantastic meal. The food here is superb- local, fresh and very tasty. I had a Jerusalem Artichoke blini with pear, walnut and blue cheese as starter which had amazing flavours....My son had the charcuterie plate which was made of Irish meats and something quite different to usual platters. Mains were fabulous- stand out was the lamb which was slow cooked and served with a fried lambs tongue (a first for all of us - and all enjoyed!). Best of all was bread and butter pudding with whiskey sauce - a wonderful end to a marvellous meal. Great wines and great service made this a really special event!More
