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.

We have been to the restaurant before and can't fault anything, except it was extremely noisy. We were seated in the centre of the restaurant and there was nothing to absorb the noise, seriously could not hear ourselves talk. The last time we were by the wall which was better.

Few thought the food was very bland - no flavour. Chicken dish. Burger was nice but very dry. Others enjoyed their food.
Service good and attentive. Nice buzz in restaurant but not overly noisy.

The vegan menu is incredible! Loved the restaurant. My only issue is that we waited what must have been over an hour for the main course because two people (out of 12) had ordered starters. We would have said to bring ahead the mains if we had been asked or if we knew what was happening. It was just too long waiting. Anyway, ambiance and decor is fabulous, food is amazing and especially amazing vegan options. Could you as standard put the vegan options on the main menu though? We almost missed the whole vegan options but for one member of our party had seen it online and knew to ask. Se of us are not veggie but we prefer to order it when we have the option.
Thank you! See you soon.

Went to Falon & Byrne on Saturday feb 22. Food was amazing. Wine was fab. The service was excellent. I thought it was a little loud as the ceilings are very high but we were seated at a table for 2 and were able to chat to each other. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food, but service was poor. ... waiting staff did not work as a team and we had to ask for water to be topped up and for oyster shells to be cleared from side plates. This may seem picky, but we were expecting a higher level of service.
Cold atmosphere (we were there early, so hopefully it warmed up later) with a draughty window.
Very low lighting made it difficult to see the food.

I have eaten in Fallon & Byrne a few times and have high expectations based on this. However the recent experience was average at best. While I expected a reduced menu for the pre-Theatre menu the choice was underwhelming and while there was nothing wrong with the food delivered it didn't live up to expectations. There was also a feeling that the staff wanted us gone as fast as possible.
Based on this experience I wouldn't recommend the pre-theatre option to others and am in no rush back for non pre-theatre

The food and wines were of a very high standard we will be back for definite as the food was fantastic. However there were a lot of servers circulating through the place and none of them were really checking in with the tables only to take plates. When the food was brought down and taken away we weren’t asked would we like anything else and it was very hard to get a servers attention. At the very end we spent over 20 minutes trying to get a servers attention for the bill. It seems like the waiters don’t have sections so it was a bit helter skelter. It doesn’t bother us having multiple servers but the quality of the service was not great and every server we had (approx 6 different ones) were highly impersonable. Overall the food will have us coming back.

Unfortunately my rib eye steak was sinewy and tough to cut and chew and was over cooked. However I was offered a replacement and they took the price of it off the bill. My starter of scallops and my partners starter and belly pork were excellent. We also enjoyed our puddings and as it was my partner's birthday they sweetly decorated a plate with a chocolate icing greeting and a candle. The wine we chose was also excellent. Service was exemplary. Just a shame about the steak.

White wine was room temperature, eventually gave ice bucket. 3 asks to get some ice cubes. 4 asks for some listed gluten free bread. Red wine then warmer than room, so got a second use from ice bucket. Overall food was high standard. Service slow overall with longer than normal delays between courses.

The higher priced (assuming quality) wine was very poor. The burger was very dry. And the staff were good, generally attentive, but not very personable. Which is all OK in a way. But I’m not so inspired to return.
