Spread over four floors in a stunning heritage building, Fallon & Byrne is Dublin’s award-winning foodie mecca and THE place to consummate your love of all things delicious. The elegant brasserie-style Restaurant is housed upstairs where light streams through tall windows into one of the city’s most handsome rooms, that also features a stylish cocktail bar. Serving modern Irish bistro-style fare in a buzzy & relaxed setting, our rib-eye steak & frites and Knickerbocker Glory are particularly renowned. For a pre or post-dinner drink, pay a visit the beautiful Wine Cellar and be sure to make time to look around our famous gourmet Food Hall on the ground floor.

Lovely dining room. Service and food was excellent. Noise levels were a bit high but there were lots of group dining. It was a special occasion and we received complimentary bubbles.

The food in the Dining Room was amazing, I had one of the best fish dishes I’ve ever eaten in the monkfish and the staff were great. There was a lot of space provided for social distancing while still providing a nice atmosphere. My only slight issue was the pricing, especially on the drinks.

As always, Fallon and Byrne was a culinary delight. Seasonal menu items and fresh ingredients paired with an excellent Portuguese red made our anniversary evening one to remember. Staff were super friendly and helpful.

Very enjoyable meal. We had the greens soup (Lovely flavour) and scallops (perfectly cooked and well seasoned) to start. For mains we had black sole and rabbit, both excellent. For desert we shared the peanut butter semifreddo which was nice.
Overall very good.

Quality of the food was excellent, the breads they gave us before the meal were very good. I had a steak which was perfectly seasoned and well cooked. Cooked rare as requested but could have been a little hotter if it was to get 10 out of 10! That’s not a complaint though. Very friendly service very clean and nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We had a really good lunch. The post-COVID lunch menu is really good. I love the room. A small wedding party came in to have lunch and this added to the ambience.

Our family lunch celebrating my daughters 18th was of the usual F & B standard. The small touches to keep us safe were very thoughtful i.e. personal hand sanitizers and disposable menus.

The food and service were also of a high standard and we will be back again

Lovely spacious airy room. Very Covid compliant, sanitiser everywhere & personal sanitiser at each place setting was a nice touch. Very professional but friendly waiting staff. Food was very good. Only complaint was that the starters were a bit small for their €9- 10 cost. I would happily dine there again.

Food was delicious - I ate from the vegan menu and my friend added feta cheese to her asparagus salad, and then we both had amazing peanut butter 'ice cream' from the vegan menu, and it was all heavenly. I had two glasses of vegan wine, which were also good. The staff are so lovely, and make everyone feel very safe. The ceiling is very high and the room airy (and very beautiful) but the individual hand sanitiser and the physical distance between tables is very reassuring and comforting. I love eating here, especially since the beginning of these plague-times ----------- I always loved this room, and Fallon & Byrne's food etc, but now I feel really comfortable and safe here as well.
