1900 serves modern Irish cuisine and which offers a selection of traditional dishes with a modern twist. The restaurant is located on Harcourt street in Dublin's south city centre. All steaks served have been aged for a minimum of 28 days, this could very well be a deciding factor for steaks lovers. Other menu items that the Chef de Cuisine serves to his diners include, an braised pork cheek with pickled red cabbage and cider jus or a Trio of Enniscorthy lamb. For those diners who enjoy their wine - the great news is that 1900 has a fantastic range.

During our Dublin stay we looked for a highly rated restaurant that wasn’t going to be too pricy. The 1900 Bar & Restaurant caught my eye because the ratings were so high. I can tell you why they rate so high. Keep in mind I live in Los Angeles, California with a multitude of good restaurants and innovative bars. Furthermore, I dined in Boston and London before landing on Dublin.

The service was top-tier and truly beat any restaurant I could mention for service, a dying industry benefit that is certainly relevant to be sustainable. We had the privilege of Jon Paul helping us with food and drinks. He was personable and enhanced our dining experience. He was a seasoned professional. Even a random waiter made sure all was well.

The prices were “reasonable,” if not a steal for the value. The filet mignon was about $23 for an 8 oz (what!!!), and we ordered pea snaps and beans that were super fresh and not over cooked. The presentation was gorgeous as in an art form. Not only did Jon Paul check on us to make sure we were happy, but, Kevin, the man who seemingly has his sights set on an upward trajectory for the 1900 made sure everything was as we expected.

We finished with amazing desserts and that chocolate thing will stay in my dreams. Dining is an experience and our evening was fantastic. The decor is charming too. This was a great find. Well done!!!!

Date night with my wife and we had a great night. Food was really tasty and well presented, great menu and it was difficult to decide what to go for. The staff where friendly and made us feel welcome and looked after. The girl playing the piano and singing was amazing, we ended up ordering another glass of wine and stayed for a while longer to enjoy the music.

We will be back.

We had lovely meal here on Saturday. The food was lovely and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We sat outside but the decor inside was absolutely lovely. It was such a nice day out though so seating outside was welcome! Would definitely return.

This was my 2nd visit to 1900 Bar&Restaurant, I was very happy to return. It happened to be my birthday and the staff organised a slice of cake with a candle. It was a lovely surprise. Thanks Mel

Food was great, but hake seemed a touch over cooked. Great service, the only issue being that it took me 30 mins to flag down a waiter to request the check. Would recommend, especially for a date or special occasion as the ambience was fantastic.

I went there based on the online menu. It bore no resemblance to the menu on the night.one person said it was the first night of the new menu, another said it was 3 years out of date- not a good reflection on ‘ open table’.
The staff tried to do their best, but we won’t be going back.

Service was great, very efficient & friendly staff. Starters were very nice & well presented. We had burgers for our main course which were very nice, unfortunately the accompanying chips weren’t so good, they weren’t crisp & tasted unpleasantly of the oil they were cooked in. I had creme brûlée for dessert which could have been lovely except the top wasn’t caramelised properly so every mouthful had a crunch of sugar in it which really spoilt it.

We went with the early bird menu, but as a vegetarian that eats fish, but does not eat mushrooms and there was no main course that suited me. However, on request they were able to remove the mushrooms from the vegetarian dish to suit me, but unfortunately the resulting dish was bland.

My husband and I enjoyed a date night with cocktails, starter and main course. I had the signature gin cocktail which was very refreshing and creative. We both ordered the duck and were very pleased. Loved the combination of the cherries with the meat. I had one piece that Had a portion that was too fatty to cut but the rest was very well prepared and tasty. The restaurant was not overly crowded and we enjoyed a Nice conversation. The service was also great. I would definitely return. Noticed that they had a beautiful grand piano at the front and would love to come on evening when music offered.

The waitstaff excellent! The goat cheese salad & meat board , very good!! My husband had the lamb . I had the seafood capellini. The cook on the lamb was ok, but it lacked seasoning. The capellini was sticky, seafood cooked nicely, but not enough in proportion to pasta.

My cocktail, blood orange cosmopolitan tasted “watered “ down . My husband’s Old fashioned lacked in comparison to our previous versions of our favorites...

I wanted to really enjoy this experience, but the food didn’t hold up to the previews that I read!...I’m sorry.

Music was a bit intense for a weekday afternoon lunch and the bar generally a bit dark. I think it would have been better in the evening with more people and we just arrived too early in the day. Food was good but linguine very salty.

Had a quiet side booth for our group of 5. Food was delicious and presentation lovely. Their Guinness and treacle brown bread lived up to the press. Service was a bit harried as they seemed a bit understaffed. Our server was delightful though.

We had a really great evening at 1900. The cocktails and service was excellent. The food was excellent except for one blip. A party member ordered a medium rare steak and got something much closer to well done.

We really enjoyed the early bird specials that we were able to take advantage of, even though 7 PM when we had dinner there. The goat cheese salad was great, the main courses chicken and steak were well prepared and tasted great. The steak dinner also came with these humongous french fries. If we find ourselves back in Dublin anytime soon, we plan on going again.
