                                  Excellent food and service. A lovely atmosphere with low noise levels when we were there. A lovely welcoming greeting on arrival and attentive but not in your face service. A lovely evening.

                                  Starters (scallops & venison tartare) and mains (monkfish & sika deer) were excellent. My wife had pistachio financier which was also delicious. I choose the cheese trolley which was very underwhelming and which also has a €9 supplement. It came out with 3 very small pieces of cheese and a table spoon of chutney. A disappointing end to the meal. We arrive at 2pm and by 3.10pm they were preparing for the dinner service (which I understand) but they are ironing tablecloths beside you as you are relaxing with your dessert. Also, they opened the front door open for some reason which made the room quite cold. Good start to the dinner, poor finish.

                                  We visited One Pico recently for an evening meal and it was great to be back dining in a top quality restaurant again. The food was excellent. I had waldorf salad and my husband had scallops to start and for main course, we both had fillet beef. The quality of service was outstanding and complimented the quality of the food very well. Thank you for a lovely night.

                                  Always a pleasure to eat here. Consistently good food, setting and staff. Thoroughly enjoyable, particularly this year because of covid and less opportunities to be out and about. Staff seemed happy to be greeting customers again. Full precautions taken.

                                  I didn't think that I got great value for money here. The markup on wine is excessive. I ate at the Pearl brasserie a few weeks ago and the difference in price between the two was notable for exactly the same wine. I don't like it when waiting staff refill your glass too frequently, presumably in an effort to encourage you to drink more. It's intrusive and irritating. White wine glasses were too wide and filled too high, allowing the wine temperature to rise too quickly. The food itself was good but the serving sizes was too small. Three two euro coin sized pieces of pasta isn't a starter, it's an amuse bouche at best.

                                  The dinner, wine and service was superb. Very sad that it was so quiet due to Covid-19 and people not eating out as usual.

                                  Had not been to One Pico in years and it certainly did not disappoint. Team were courteous and discrete. Food was delicious and interesting. The covid measures have been implemented very smartly and barely noticeable. Absolutely recommend.

                                  In a COVID world, it's great to see this restaurant maintain excellence throughout. Fantastic service and wonderfully presented food. Apart from the face visors worn by staff, which I think we are all getting used to (and reassuring), there was no real difference in overall top class experience. Impeccable service. Friendly & professional staff. And amazing dinner.

                                  Our favorite place in Dublin by far. Amazing food, refreshing and updated menu than changes and never keeps us bored. Most professional and kind staff we came across, always willing to accommodate our requests and needs.

                                  Such a lovely restaurant, staff so attentive and food was really good, but this is the second year in a row that we have booked this restaurant for a catch up with another couple at Christmas and the dining room is hosting a companies staff party, the noise was over baring at times. I appreciate everyone is out to have a good time, it is Christmas after all, but as a group of 4 I felt we where roaring all night so we could hear each other. Large groups should be in a separate room, or at least let people know there is a large group dining with you. Apart from that I cannot fault this place. Everything was fabulous

                                  We had a wonderful dinner at One Pico... The food was excellent and even better than our last visit. The room is very pleasant, both warm and modern. Service was very good. This is definitely one of the top 5/10 best table in Dublin in my view.

                                  Superb meal as always, but better since our last visit. Andrew, Arnold and the rest of the front of house team run a very smooth operation, whilst Ciaran and the kitchen staff offer superb seasonal food. It has been almost two years since we last attended, and the food has improved in our opinion. It was one of those 'why has it been so long since we were here' nights, and will definitely be back before Xmas. Truely enjoyable evening all around.

                                  The lemon soufflé was a Proustian experience taking me back to my grandmother’s lemon desserts. Light, fluffy, hot, and delicious. All I can think about is how to get back to experience it again.

                                  We would frequently eat here and love the food, ambiance and service. However, I would have to mention we were disgusted when we got the bill and found that a coffee is €6.50. Absolute rip off

                                  Super food, lovely, relaxed service and great value for money - we especially loved the Beef Cheek, and the cheeseboard. It's always great to be introduced to a new cheese; in this case the French Tomme Croquant, with a rind washed in walnut liquor, evident in every morsel. The well-priced Godillo Spanish white wine was exceptional.

                                  It was unfortunate. When you are seated for nearly 30 minutes before someone comes to your table to take an order that sets the tone. When our server came by he asked if we were ready to order when we hadn’t even had a chance to order cocktails. While the pace after was a bit slow it was tolerable, however you can’t get over the sense that you are being ignored. The staff was very nice, but probably came by our table 4 maybe 5 times in total over a 2 ½ hour dinner. Finally, as vegetarians, normally when a chef modifies a dish to accommodate you, they will change it to keep it interesting. In this case they only removed what we believe were substantial elements to the dish and made no attempt to shift or modify anything. In total, the food was OK, certainly not exceptional and service left a lot to be desired.

                                  I booked One Pico to celebrate my birthday. The food was absolutely delicious and the service outstanding. We will be back
