Food was great without being too pretentious. Nice venue and friendly staff. A bit pricey but that's what happening again in Dublin in this Celtic tiger 2.0 we are now. Cheapest wine for ~€40 when the same one cost half price or less in Spain or Italy. The wine excise in Ireland is a rip-off.
Really enjoyable evening, had the chef tasting menu every course of which was very tasty. Really good wine and great service too.
Wow, thrilled by the yummy and intimate outing at Host...our first outing but certainly not the last! Thoroughly enjoyed the shared tasting menu...damn those peaches and burrata were the talk of the weekend!
As always a treat to savor .. has never disappointed
Lovely spot. Nice food. Great service.
Amazing food and service. Chef menu excellent value. Highly recommend!
Food was amazing and the staff were incredibly attentive and polite. I would really recommend Host
Celebrated my birthday with family and friends.
Great evening gorgeous food . We are always so well looked after by staff & chefs in Host .
Top restaurant in Ranelagh
Host is a nice little restaurant with very good food and service. I did receive a text (to which I replied immediately), an email (to which I replied the next day because I was traveling), and a call (which I did not return) confirming my reservation, which I found excessive. We are from the US and not used to having a time limit to sit but I can appreciate the straightforwardness of telling us when the seats are needed for the next costumers. The menu was straightforward and everything was delicious although I did not care for the mackerel starter. The pasta was amazing especially the bolognese, and the steak was cooked to perfection. The only downside was the tension level amongst the servers came across as extremely high.
Fabulous innovative food - great combinations of flavors. The burrata starter was just divine. Chefs tasting menu was excellent and good value. First time in Host and will definitely be back 😊
The Host is a nice restaurant for a casual dinner with friends. Out of a variety of food that we tried, definitely plates of pasta were the best. Bolognese had something unusual in it, and the pumpkin one was completely mind-blowing.
We had some initial doubts about high-top seats. But they were very comfortable.
The food was nice but waiter didn’t bring back our change. We would have tipped anyway but didn’t like that he assumed he could keep the change.
We opted for the chef’s menu. Really good value and very flavoursome. Great selection of wines. The staff were attentive and friendly. Over all, a lovely evening. We’ll definitely be back!
A really enjoyable experience. Excellent food, loved sharing plates. Excellent staff and attentive service. Professional not stuffy. The actual food was brilliant. Every morsel was consumed and all four of us left excited and satisfied with the whole evening.
A late Father’s Day
Nice buzzy spot. Tasty food. Especially the squash and walnut pasta dish. Portions a bit small
We have been to Host a number of times and, once again, it did not disappoint. My husband and I went for the Chef’s Menu for 2. It’s good value, and always delicious. The Burrata was perfectly ‘melt in the mouth’. The mackerel with Kohlrabi and sesame was refreshing with a nice bite. The pumpkin capellaci was the stand-out dish. We had Turbot and Grilled Corn Salsa for main, this was a fantastic dish. The meal was topped off with a lovely ricotta cheesecake. There was a good selection of wines with a price good range, and we went with a recommendation from our server of a lovely Riesling. We’ll be back soon!
Such a great spot. The food is fresh and interesting and the wine list is carefully selected with some great crowd pleasers, as well as some interesting lesser seen wines. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. They were so accommodating of some food allergies within our group and we had a great meal!
Never fails to impress.
This place delights, combining cheerful, thoughtful service with a stellar menu. The restaurant exudes a classy but comfortable atmosphere, fitting for all occasions. The only problem is that its excellence is the worst kept secret in town.
First time there and really enjoyed the food, the chicken was delicious. One area of disappointment was the coffee.
We will be back.
Took the chefs menus which treated us to Fabulous food:with great flavors. Staff were friendly and attentive and made the experience even more enjoyable. Great experience. Great restaurant
As always food was amazing. Highly recommend host for good quality food and great service. Perfect for all occasions. We'll be back soon :) x
