I had been in the Bresson before and I choose it this time as Dublin is in level 3 and wanted a nice restaurant with outside seating .
It was a beautiful day and the food and service were not at all effected by the shut down .
I highly recommend it
Great food, great cocktails & great service. V enjoyable evening in the outdoor area.
Perfect from start to finish! Beautiful food and drinks, professional and efficient staff and nice relaxed atmosphere. Loved it!
Great atmosphere with wonderful food and attention to detail. Great service , comfortable seating and lovely surroundings added to our meal. Will definitely return on our own or with friends.
The food was amaizing and the service too.
Fabulous evening celebrating my mother’s birthday, friendly staff, great atmosphere, beautifully surroundings and delicious food.....
Lovely food, will be going back. Fillet steak is well worth it
Fab spot, great food - highly recommend, never disappoints
Excellent food and very friendly staff. All Covid-19 guidelines observed.
We were not pre-advised that our table would be outside in the courtyard. It was a cold September’s evening and we had booked for 9pm. We were frozen by the time we finished our meal and owing to condensation from the awning above our heads, my left arm was continually “rained” on. It was not a pleasant experience which was a pity, as the food & service were very good.
Fabulous!!!! Wonderful French food , had an exquisite crab starter followed by the scallops served in their shell with mashed potato, wonderful !! Highly recommend !
Did not know what to expect but it was a fantastic experience
Well managed as far as Coronavirus is concerned yet it did not over take everything else
Fantastic food, fantastic service. Will be back again soon.
I suppose perhaps lockdown has had an affect but I would say that the portions had gotten noticeably smaller and one of the meals not as good as it was.
Specifically the Mussels starter and the Scallops. I got 8 mussels in a rather tasty sauce-though compared to past times I've eaten this here where you got a large bowl, it was somewhat unsatisfactory. The Scallop dish consisted of 2 small scallops hidden in a cheap to make potatoey sauce. This experience may be result of ordering off the Early Bird, usually I would go a la carte, but it was markedly different and disappointing (and it wasnt THAT cheap).
There was also an issue of timing with desert, half our orders arrived good 15 minutes after the other half, though I do think this was really down to an exceptional occurrence, timing throughout the meal being otherwise perfect.
Staff here are always lovely and accommodating &the ambience excellent. I do believe the food standard will return to its previously wonderful standard (hopefully sooner rather than later!)
Lovely evening during difficult times.
As always Bresson is a delight. I had the mussels, and although the serving was small, they were delicious and the cooking liquid lovely to mop up with some of the tasty brown bread. My main course was the scallops which I should not have selected but had to because I find them so good. Overall, a lovely dinner, washed down with a nicely chilled white wine.
After eating here the previous week we returned at 6pm on Friday with our Daughter. Table near the pass and noise level higher.bit dark down there. Service very attentive and food nice but be prepared for smallish portions. 3 courses done in 65 mins so a bit rushed. Price ok for what we got. Think I might wait a while before returning.
Fabulous food, drinks and service!
The espresso martinis rounded the meal of nicely! Sublime ❤️
Great food and very attentive staff - a visit is recommended.
Good food and service
Calm polite non intrusive service. Lovely relaxing quiet room upstairs. Halibut was fantastic
Can’t wait to go back - not cheap but so worth it
Excellent food and service. Deserts were expensive and disappointing
We were looking forward to eating here but we were underwhelmed. We both had french onion soup that had an overriding taste of tarragon, whilst not unpleasant, was unexpected. My chicken arrived pink and had to be sent back so my husband ate his dinner alone. Staff were apologetic about this and did not charge for my main course. My chicken was very tasty second time around. Lemon tart was lovely. Accidents happen and we were unlucky. Staff were nice and we left a tip. However, I feel this restaurant is overpriced for the quality on offer.
Bresson is my neighbourhood favourite. This was my first time there since Covid restrictions came in to effect and I was very pleasantly surprised. They manage a delicate balance between strict adherence to Public Helath Guidelines and retaining the warmth, lovely service and excellent food that they have always delivered.
I had a wonderful experience with friends, all the more special because of our current circumstances.
I will definitely be back and highly recommend for anyone.
Excellent atmosphere- food very good and service top class- overall very enjoyable
So lovely to be back in Bresson - missed it so appreciate it even more now 😊
Waiting staff attentive and friendly, except nobody enquired if our food was satisfactory during meal. Value for money good. Good selection of drinks. Nice outdoor yard area with heaters for those who wish to brave the unpredictable Irish weather. Food generally good, although steak overdone and not the most tender of cuts.
The staff were very attentive and warm and welcoming. It was extremely clean, the tables were well spaced and all staff wore masks-it felt very safe to be out. The food was delicious and we had gorgeous wine!
Great atmosphere and very friendly service with great food. Can be a bit expensive but overall great place
Welcoming staff, beautifully presented and flavoursome seafood. Good cocktail choices.
Every time we dine at Bresson,the food is excellent and the staff are really nice and friendly,we can’t recommend it enough.
Considering how difficult the new dining experience can be, Bresson have made it fabulous with excellent staff, food and ambience
It’s becoming my go to place on a Friday evening love the food and the service
Had an amazing lunch there, three courses with wine and coffee afterwards. All courses were delicious and I was definitely full afterwards. The waiters were very attentive and the atmosphere was great, even just for lunch. We had a voucher so not sure if I would've liked to pay €30 for the set menu plus wine plus coffee but that's just my personal opinion, otherwise I think two courses for around €24 are a great deal for what you get! Great area, atmosphere and deal to be fair!
Part of the great restaurant scene in Monkstown. Service excellent and food is top notch. You can eat light or big here. French classics with a twist, excellent bar and good wine list. Professional service during these odd times and we never felt uncomfortable at any time. Well done guys.
Really nice restaurant, the food was good. I really enjoyed the Halibut. Excellent presentation of the dishes we ordered. We will be back, soon I hope!
Superb food, Great service. Absolutely delicious meal.
Excellent restaurant. Very nice ambiance, friendly service, French brasserie style food.
