Exceptional service, would highly recommend. I accidentally booked a table for the cocktail bar instead of the restaurant, which was amazing by the way, but I was so impressed with the service and the staff who even managed to get me a table in the restaurant on valentines day. So grateful, as it really made our night

Was quite disappointing. I believed when booking there would be food available- ‘dining experience’ quoted in all correspondence & received a ‘menu’. However on arrival was told that they did not serve food in the cocktail bar & there was no availability in any of the other restaurants even though they were all half empty. Had to book another restaurant last minute on Saturday before Christmas, but thankfully we were lucky and got somewhere that turned out to be lovely.

we sat upstairs in the winter wonderland rooftop bar, there is no real view of Dublin but it is a very lovely set up with heaters to keep you warm, we had a lovely evening there, thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails and nibbles! Would definitely recommend for a group night out or even just a date with your SO! Pricey though!

Very loud music which made it impossible to hear my friends which was perplexing as the layout of the bar is more like a casual lounge than a club. Took 35 minutes before anybody came to our table to take an order even though we were trying to get passing waiters attention. The cocktails were great, it has to be said, but we were waiting an awful long time to get them

There was ten of us in a reserved area, and we were very well looked after by the manager. Drinks and light bites were gorgeous. Highly recommend

Service was really bad, not much staff on for how busy it was. When we were seated we weren’t given menus or told the deals for the day and how we could order food or drinks because some tables had table service while others had to go and order at the bar.

It was a great experience. Amazing cocktails, very good (although a bit overpriced) food. Only thing they could improve is that there were only two waiters for a very packed terrace-that made service quite slow (we ordered, and waited for 15 minutes for two cocktails). The rest was great and the staff was friendly.

We went for drinks, beautiful decor and very good ambiance and the cocktails are lovely. Seemed to be a difficult night for the staff, we waited 10 mins before waiter came over and asked for our drinks order and then once ordered we were another 20 mins to actually get the drinks.

However, the head barman on the night was excellent gave us a contrite and honest apology and we got the drinks for free.

This is a great venue for pre or post dinner cocktails. We were there on a lovely sunny afternoon for pre dinner cocktail and while the cocktails were great unfortunately the service was very slow and the staff who were on were ran off their feet.

It was my first visit at the cocktail bar and also at the restaurant. I loved the cocktails as well as the food and also the atmosphere. The service was also pretty good. Good place to be and to enjoy good cocktails and food . I would definitely visit again and would recommend the cocktail bar as well as the restaurant to other people.

We ate in the tapas bar - food is very tasty but very hard to find food that is not greasy as everything is done in oil or batter and very very few healthy options. Service is friendly and good but it can be slow as if you order a drink it has to come from the bar. The waiter service in the Cocktail bar is very slow.

I was not impressed at all with the menu we were offered in fade street. There were four of us. We went for two sharing plates and four sides. We got two small main courses to be shared between four. The side of seasonal veg turned out to be four pieces of tenderstem broccoli. I don’t eat dairy or eggs and when I asked for a suitable dessert. They gave me a bowl of grapes and what looked like a tin of fruit salad. It was 8 euro for 12 grapes 🤐🤐 don’t get me wrong. I enjoy fine dining and unusual food but was not in anyway impressed with fade st. I had previously need to rustic stone and love the menu there.

I am foodie .
I Always try new things and love going back to others.Fade street social is the one I like going back to .
Went for cocktails. The staff that night were particularly amazing .
It was a busy night and they were at the top of their game, with professional courteous and classy service .
I wish I had asked the name of the servers , but they were at the cocktail bar area .
As always enjoyed the time there .

We had a reservation upstairs in the lounge for NYE. Got sat, ordered two expensive bottles of champagne for the 4 of us and never saw the server again. We were going up to the bar asking for water and additional bottles of champagne. We didn't go to a bar for a reason - wanted a table so we'd actually have a drink at midnight... very disappointed in the service. Thank goodness they had a DJ.

We had a wonderful time catching up on Sunday. 4 friends who have not seen each other for a long time. We had the best service from the girl who served us our food and drinks. What a wonderful person to have on your team - smiley; efficient; pleasant; non-intrusive. Top class service. The food was also really delicious and the cocktails very different and unusual. Great atmosphere. Highly recommended. One thing about your upstairs bar - the service up there was terrible. The disinterest and boredom of the staff is palpable. A complete contrast to the staff downstairs. Our server was unfriendly and made faces at our choice of drink order. She also spent a lot of time checking out her hair in the mirrors on the wall. Not a good impression. Lowers the good perception of an otherwise fantastic day.
Give the girl in the Tapas restaurant a raise.
