Very fast . Very friendly. Food is always okay a little above but then the price is good so you can't have everything. Ideal for quick lunch and go.

Very pleasant staff... More

Delicious lunch. Very unassuming place - cool decor and nice atmosphere. Service is a little slow so not one if you're rushing. Try the Russia Caravan tea...smoky!

Kilkenny itself is diadem but the Marble City Bar is a gem within in its crown. It had a wonderful decor. It had a great selection of wines. Service was both charming and courteous.
