There was a time when you couldnt get a table without a reservation, in this fab little restaurant. I was surprised to find that we had no problem getting a table for 4 last night, it being a busy Saturday night elsewhere.
Having sampled the food and service however I understand why.
As a creature of a habit I ordered the previously divine lamb burger. I also asked for it to be well well done. Instead of the delicious lamb burgers of old, I was served a very very strange processed "thing" that was far from delish.
The steaks for my 3 dining companions were all great apparently but the potato and chips were not.
The waitress who served us clearly didnt want to be in work last night and was far from attentive. In a half-full restaurant that's hardly ideal. No eye contact whatsoever. And this was across the board - i.e. we werent getting any 'special treatment'. Another waitress assisted us thankfully and was the one we tipped.
Sad to say all 4 of us agree that The Larder is most definitely off our list of places to eat for the forseeable future. A big big disapointment. Particularly as these guys used to have it so right.

We enjoyed a good evening, with the friendly staff, great food, pleasant ambience, and without intrusive background music.

We walked in off the street and got a table even though the place and city were buzzing. Staff were nice and friendly, an energetic atmosphere. Starters Dublin Bay Prawns and soup really nice. Steaks were amazing and cooked to perfection. Cheese cake and coffee so tasty. All so reasonably priced. Will definately revisit...

I got pork belly. It wasn't fit to serve. Dry. Overcooked. Parts indelible it was too tough.
I couldn't complain as in a group celebration. I just won't ever go back.
Service slow and unfriendly.
Place is just dull.
