                                                    I spent my birthday here and we had a wonderful time. The only reason why i cant give 5stars for food is that my steak was still bloody which is not medium well to me. But my friends loved their food and drinks and that's the main thing. All in all, it still was a great experience.

                                                    Poor menu choice, ambience downstairs not as good as upstairs. Bad smell, smelt like dirty mop bucket

The fish was literally jumped fresh from the sea onto my plate and the creme brulee was classic with amazing textures of orange throughout that I was happily transported to Seville. I look forward to another visit.

                                                    Excellent food - cannot emphasis how pleasantly surprised we were with the food and we had people with all kinds of food preferences in the group, great service - our main server was so attentive and friendly, but the vibe is weird... The furniture outside of clunky big leather chairs with dark wood tables feels outdated and the clientele are strange. New to Ireland, but is it a lot of Dublin huns? Is that a thing?

                                                    The waiter was lovely but I was very disappointed by the lack of options for those with dietary requirements such as lactose intolerance and vegetarian. The options I did have weren’t that great.

The outdoor area was perfect even with the cold weather, no wind or rain, nice heaters to keep you cosy. Perfect date location!!

                                                    More like a sports bar than a restaurant… didn’t love the vibe. Menu a bit limited. Not my favourite level of Fade St Social. Much prefer downstairs.

                                                    I am so bitterly disappointed in the overall experience my family had in Fade Street Social. I had high hopes when we first arrived however they literally faded quickly within moments of being seated. The name of this restaurant now makes perfect sense, I would probably change it to “Fade Away Social” as upon my exit I was starving. In the vein hope that this review may garner the attention of someone who will do something about this feedback I will share a couple of areas for improvement: 1. A smell of human faeces lingered from what I can only imagine could be a burst pipe or seating too close to a ventilation system. 2. Menu was limited and not family friendly. 3. Value for money in my opinion was off kilter. My steak was not cooked to my specifications (medium) it was so rare that I could not eat much of it. The majority was actually fat and inedible. Pretentious, is the word that springs to mind when trying to describe the atmosphere. 4. We asked for 3 “mocktails” and paid the same price as if alcohol was added. It is an utter shame that I picked this establishment to celebrate my daughter’s Confirmation, as it truly ended such a marvellous day on a extremely sour note. Would I recommend this as a place to visit? Absolutely not! Will I return? No! Was I “hangry” when I left? YES!

                                                    Just a little too noisy, great food and cocktails but the acoustics downstairs made hearing conversation difficult.

                                                    very attentive staff and delicious food. Very buzzy but a bit too loud for a catch up dinner, would come again for another occasion.

                                                    Food was expensive for what it was. Very limited menu. Burger was nice but steak was very disappointing for 30€ and no side included. Was expecting better to be quite honest !

                                                    Poor service from start to end- maybe because we were not hip enough..? We were not prioritized at all. Food ok, but not quite worth money spent

                                                    Overall, nice lunch. Not much by way of social distancing with people also using the roof terrace as a smoking area. Service was good. Ordered a drink and a different beer was brought to table, said I ordered something else and was just told me don’t have it and server walked away. Food was good, but not great value for money. Enjoyable but wouldn’t be in a hurry to return.

                                                    We were there for a late lunch, the food was very good and the service was great. We were sitting upstairs in the outside area and it was really lovely. The music was a bit too loud, we were sitting beside a speaker though. I asked for the music to be lowered and it was immediately. Definitely would go back and would recommend to friends.

                                                    We were given too small a table for three people dining. We were forced to put our drinks/candle/water jug on the floor to make room for the food. The size of the table really took away from our overall experience.

                                                    Service was really poor, really hard to get a waitor over to table for drinks orders. No beer mats so tables were really messy

                                                    Extremely rude hostess/manager who sat us in the restaurant even though our booking was for the cocktail bar and she was very reluctant to move us but eventually did. Staff in cocktail bar were lovely and cocktails were great! Just a pity our entrance was not welcoming.
