Can’t rate Host highly enough. If in Dublin worth travelling to. Easy as good as London restaurants.

Really good food. Be nice to have some spirits on the menu for a non wine drinker just to have the option.

Food as always was outstanding. Service is friendly and efficient. We got the tasting chefs menu. Everything was packed with flavour and creativity. The rib eye steak was sensational, cooked to perfection with a beautiful braised exterior, rich bbq taste. The Rump Bolognaise Tagliatelle and the burrata were also highlights. I think the variation in the chefs menu really added to the experience. Each dish was explained thoroughly by staff that are clearly passionate about the food. Can't wait to go back.

One of the best restaurants in Ranelagh. Always good food, great service and brilliant ambience. Highly recommended for those who like honest quality food with interesting flavours. If you don't like chain restaurants experience and prefer original and one off quirky little spots - this is the place for you. Enjoy!

Excellent. Only complaint was that we were sitting on high chairs in window which were not the most comfortable but it was also a little cold by the door/big window. Food, service excellent. Would definitely return

We had the tasting menu - great variety, wonderful flavours including our mains which was brill and all in all very good value. However, if we hadn't been seated at the counter the noise level would have been unbearable.

Brought a friend for his 60th birthday. Had an exceptional meal with lots of interesting flavours and creative dishes. Great buzz. Neil has assembled an exceptional staff and Sean and Sarah took super care of us and even produced a desert with a candle and obliged with a nice pic. Couldn’t ask for better or improve a thing

Host is a cool place with great food, ambience and service.
The only criticism is the wine list is a bit odd ..there’s a Negroamara red from Puglia which should never have made it out of Puglia ..the bottle has a cap like a beer bottle and I recoiled from the bouquet on the nose and the taste. Please list a jammy negroamara or primitivo or black Malvasie and I will be so happy !! Otherwise it’s a great little place with a cosmopolitan feel . Thank you . Mary

Host is a great value, great food, and the wait staff was excellent. I cannot day enough good things. We did the tasting menu which was actually way too much food for two girls, however you really get your money’s worth and get to try everything. Can not recommend this place enough

mains dishes were tiny, wasn't expecting that. Flavorsome, but left feeling hungry still. Bacon Terrine should have two pieces of toast - one barely covered 1/3 of the terrine - also contradicts the explanation given to us when we arrived about the theme of sharing plates at HOST. Lovely food but didn't feel the 'value' if I'm honest, didn't see what all the fuss has been about.

While generally tasty, the miserly portions of simple food for over 100 euro for 2 was not worth it. Also, we were both sick after eating there. We defintely won't be returning.
