The Green Hen
Lunch & Dinner is served everyday, with Early Bird & Table D'Hote options. We offer an extensive wine menu to complement any dish, our staff would be delighted to recommend a bottle. Our award-winning cocktails are also a must try! Come and join us and enjoy the unique ambiance and great customer service that everyone is talking about at The Green Hen.
I would recommend this place. Drinks and food is very good and fair prices.
Will most certainly be back. Could not fault anything. Just the best!
We were seat more in the bar area than the restaurant
This was disappointing as I booked to eat in a restaurant not a bar
We had a delicious dinner and the Manager and Bartender are gems. Highly recommend for both the food and service.
This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide. The food was excellent although the service was a bit slow (I think in part to the few numbers of servers, etc. on schedule that night). OST definitely would recommend this restaurant to people visiting.
What a find! Traveling in Ireland and looked for a good French restaurant. It was like being in the St Germaine area in Paris. Good food and service. So cute inside!
I eat at the Green Hen often. The staff are great. Always feel welcome. There’s a lovely atmosphere in the place. Also do amazing cocktails!
Having had some lovely lunches in the Green Hen I decided to book my husband's 65th birthday there. What a disappointment, the service was terrible the food came in relays. The food was cold and in two cases overcooked. Will not be going back!
The service was absolutely excellent. When our chosen wine was not available the waitress looked after a more expensive one for the same price. There was no problem catering for non alcoholic drinkers and the bar staff prepared a wonderful non alcoholic cocktail. There was generous portions and all the food for the five of us was excellent.
We were seated by the new manager who was very friendly. Staff in general were friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately it was difficult to get their attention and we had to walk to the bar to order drinks. Long delays between courses. The food was lovely but the waiting and trying to get the attention of staff really brings the place down.
Best value for money in Dublin. Great food and service.
Fantastically special as always. Can't wait to return.
Really enjoyed dining at the Green Hen - strip loin steak was excellent & cooked exactly as ordered. Lovely staff delivered very good customer service. Will certainly be back
Really nice setting and a warm welcome from the team at the green hen to our party of six. Food was good but the service was lacking a little, one of our parties starters were forgotten and then when it came to the main course there was a lag of about 10 minutes for two of the main courses for which the team apologised and said that it would be discounted on the bill, but they didn't do that either. Having said all that I would go back.
A beauiltiful cosy retaraunt, the staff are so friendly and very accomadating.
Our waiter I believe his name was Liam as far as I could see from the reciept, visited our table to check everything was ok more than once and even offered to pop my flowers into water behind the bar so they werent in the way. The Duck leg was perfection, literally fell off the bone.
Will definitely be back!
The table next to us seem to think they were in a pub and not a restaurant so were quite noisy. Could've done with a bit more description of the special, on asking what it came with was just told 'Some vegetables.' Still, a lovely place. Have eaten there many times and will be back. Recommended!
Green Hen has gone downhill. Appeared grubby. We were seated on a high table beside the coats so people and staff were physically touching my back to get coats during the meal. The service was ok, very knowledge waiter but slow at times. Bartender went missing once to the point where people were about to walk out and it wasn’t chaotically busy. Food was not good, tough pork chop, sticky mash, it met pub grub standards at best. Wine was initially served in cheap wine glasses you’d see if a bad hotel. Disappointed, won’t be going back.
Food was superb. Pricey but worth it! Music was quite loud but as you only have the table for 2 hours, it’s not like we could hang about anyway. But it wouldn’t be ideal as a date spot if you’re trying to have a chat! The table next to us were very loud but thankfully when their time was up, they were asked very politely to vacate so the staff aren’t terrified youngsters like I’ve seen in some restaurants! Will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful dinner at The Green Hen. Service was a bit slow in the kitchen due to big wedding party but our table waiter excelled in making up for it. We loved the bread basket and the main dishes, and the desserts were also very good. Great ambiance. Well done The Green Hen.
Had a great evening, early bird menu was lovely and great value and the service was excellent.
Disappointing, very ordinary meal, tough steak! Nothing you wouldn’t do at home
Our recent visit was our third and all of them have been consistently good. It was definitely worth our 120 miles journey for our experience
We will be back next time we are in Dublin
Our Sunday lunch was lovely. We requested & were given a corner table which was good. Excellent service & friendly staff. Thank you.
Food very good. Wine a bit overpriced
Great location. Good food. Attentive staff.
The food was just wonderful. Main courses in particular. Will be back.
Do find it a little dark but that is probably a personal preference.
Absolutely charming little bistro. Dined with a group of six and everyone commented on how delicious their meal was. A nice mix of flavors, and drew a bit on the French/Vietnamese influence as well. How I wish this could be my neighborhood bistro - I would go here frequently! (However, I'm over on the other side of the ocean, so the best I can hope for is the next time I am back in Dublin.).
I have been here before and absolutely loved it but on this occasion I was disappointed. It was a birthday celebration and we also had a French friend with us who has very little English and despite our assistance found it difficult to ascertain what she could eat. Somewhat ironic given the French fare of which I had been boasting, based on my previous visit!! It was also extremely noisy and we were shouting at each other. I also found the waiter, albeit a nice guy, was a bit impatient with our difficulties. However, I will say I was pleased when he took my French companion to speak with the Chef which was a very nice touch. It wasn't a bad evening, just disappointing as I had my friends all built up for a fabulous experience.
Food choices on early bird were very limited. Found it difficult to find something and I am not an overly fussy eater
We went for early bird but very bad choices so had to order from dinner menu which was expensive.
Improve early bird
We've been to the Green Hen a few times and have always enjoyed the food and general ambience. However, on our most recent visit, the service was quite slow, e.g. took almost 15 minutes for two beers to be brought to the table. Restaurant wasn't particularly busy, so don't know if it was just too few waiting staff available.
4 of us arrived Friday night for 7.15 pm booking. Our table was towards the back of restaurant ground floor. It was immediately apparent that the noise level was high & we would not be able to talk at normal pitch. We requested a different table, upstairs, as on a previous occasion had been there. Upstairs not in use on Friday due to carpet cleaning that day. Only a small table available front of house. We stayed put.
The noise was due to 2 large groups nearby. This restaurant’s website stipulates children under 12 years not catered for after 5pm. A boy of about 3 years was in one of the groups. A gorgeous child who indicated how bored & tired he was was by screaming in a high pitched shrill from time to time. The restaurant was so noisy our waiter made a mistake & 2 pork chop dinners arrived instead of 2 Hake dinners. Along with our 2 duck dinners, the meals were taken back so we could all eat at the same time. Our starters were good - crab & a terrine. The noise level & our having to talk in raised voices gave me a headache but at least I had paracetamol to hand. This is quite an expensive restaurant & we were really fed up with the racket. I suggested to a Manager the larger groups should have been accommodated upstairs - carpet cleaning on a Friday in July ? We requested & got a free coffee & 2 sides were not charged over the meal order mistake. We noticed a couple near us complain about the noise directly to the group with the child - they were not well received. I will not be in The Green Hen again!
Had a lovely early dinner before Burt Bacharach on Saturday night. We booked for 8 but actually ended up with 10 people so were relocated to top floor. Bit of a hike but lovely table etc. Took a while to get our drinks orders taken but from then on it was great. Lovely atmosphere, friendly service and great food. This place is a gem and is not our go to place in the city. Its not cheap but worth splashing out. Highly recommend a visit.
Beautiful meal to celebrate my sister's birthday.food was delicious staff are fantastic.we love everything about the green hen.will go again soon to treat my hubby and daughters for a summer treat.grest spot thanks for a lovely memory. Regards Deirdre O'Brien
We did not stay to eat, because we were received in a hostile fashion. They should also change the term "TOP TABLE" to "HIGH TABLE". I took Top Table to mean BEST area. I will NEVER book that restaurant again. They are very ignorant when it comes to running a good service restaurant. I can elaborate much more, but you will be bored with my complaints.
We have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is always good and the service is great. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. The early bird if great value, the cocktails are delicious. One of my favorite places to eat in the city.
The restaurant has a nice and cozy vibe. The service was ok, a bit inconsistent as our first waiter was a bit abrupt (probably because he was finishing soon), and the second was much more attentive and pleasant. All the food tasted good, but the pricing was a bit high for what you get.
The main problem for me was I had rang ahead and asked for separate bill for wine and prosecco which I had ordered, bill came at end for everything together. I was very upset as everybody then divided the bill, I did not want this and was very embarrassed as it was a lot for each individual to pay. When I rang the girl assured me the bills would be separate. It ruined the evening for me.
Gorgeous food & great service
The food was really nice. We were on the early bird menu however and perhaps this is the reason it all felt very rushed. We had starters, mains, sides, wine and dessert which we finished in less than an hour. The bill came to €90 which, on a Tuesday evening I feel like shouldn't be rushed at all. Besides this the chocolate pave dessert was amazing and the staff were very friendly and attentive.
