This location has just about everything. Top image, reputation of itrs celebrity chef, brilliantly balanced menu and wine list, really creative offerings, good location, very professional staff. But you have got to go early week to ecape the awful noise level - unless you enjoy shouting at your dinner companions.

Was out with a small group for a birthday celebration.

Overall its a nice setting and the staff were more than helpful and friendly, however the waiter mixed up the steaks at our table and it was only after a couple of bites that we realised we were eating the wrong steaks - I accept that this can happen from time to time but when 5 steaks come out and look very similar to untrained eyes the onus is on the waiter to get it right -especially when you are paying top dollar.

Was a bit disappointing to be honest, we did point it out to the waiter and he was apologetic to be fair.....other than that its overpriced for what you get on your plate - If I could use one word to describe it, it would be...Meh! far better value out there in my opinion leaving the mix up aside

Good service, reasonable wine prices, superb fish and steaks.
Steak tartare and Halibut stood out. The staff put themselves out to squeeze us in then found a table outside for coffees. All in all a good experience in a busy part of town on international rugby weekend

I took a colleague out for a business dinner on a Thursday evening. The place was pretty busy which I always take as a good sign.
The waiter was very friendly and paid very good attention all evening. The food can be recommended and the steaks in particular were excellent.
We enjoyed a good evening in there and certainly will return.

Being just a block off Grafton Street, Marco Pierre White's Steakhouse is an excellent place to get away from the crowds to enjoy and outstanding dinner. We ate there twice during our recent trip to Dublin. The service is excellent and the food is very good. The menu offers a wide variety of choices for all appetites. There is outdoor covered seating for those who wish to smoke. It is quite comfortable even on a chilly evening as it is heated. My wife strongly recommends the pork chops and our second trip was made specifically so she could have them again before we come home. Those and the sticky toffee pudding, which she couldn't order the first time around because she didn't plan for dessert and there was not room left. They are open early enough that you can often walk in while touring to make reservations for the same evening. Of course, it isn't the cheapest place in town but it is a very good value considering the quality of the food. It is on our list of place to go again when we travel through Dublin.
