    The food was excellent The service is over the top and by that I mean very choreographed - to serve two people, three waiters approach the table at the same tim one carrying the tray and two others who take a plate each from the tray and serve one of the two waiting diners. I found this very outdated and unnecessary in the current climate. At one point there were more waiters in the room than diners and they seemed to be constantly swishing past our table. There was nothing low key and subtle about this service. The decor was not to my taste and the atmosphere was cold, although to be fair our booking was at 7pm, so fairly early.

    We chose Glovers Alley to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary whilst on a trip to Dublin. We were very impressed with the level of service, the quality of the food and the excellent choices for the wine pairing option to accompany the menu. The food was outstanding and every course was a delight. We chose the tasting menu and were not disappointed. Well worth the visit and would highly recommend booking if you are in Dublin.

    An amazing experience from start to finish. While in Dublin for work, I discovered this gem by accident and oh boy the positive surprise. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while. All flavors blended beautifully together. The staff were extremely attentive yet discreet. Well versed in the menu. Definitely a must!

    We had dinner here in early 2020 and loved it. The food was excellent and the staff were brilliant. When I was planning to take my wife out for her 40th birthday I thought this would be the perfect place. Unfortunately tonight was a different experience. The food was still excellent, but the service wasn’t. When we mentioned this to the manager at the end, it felt like our feedback was just brushed off. It’s a pity as we loved this restaurant the first time and raved about it to everyone we knew. Unfortunately based on tonight’s experience, I don’t know if we’ll be back again.
