The Saddle Room at the Shelbourne Hotel
Fabulous dining experience as always. Best in Dublin
Attentive service, delicious food, great value lunch menu. 👍
We enjoyed a very nice 3 course lunch & found the service so friendly & efficient
Overally, it was a nice experience. We went for a set menu on Sunday, 30 e for 2 course dinner and because everyone ordered something different we noticed that options weren't as balanced as we would have expected them to be. I went for a fish and I really appreciated the fact that it was beautifully made and served, however, there was no salad with eat and it was a bit surprising.
Truly an ell extraordinary experience in a legendary hotel...3 course for 34€ is second to none value
Disappointing! Had booked as a birthday treat prior to Shelbourne Spa treatment. We were brought to a room off the main dining room, which had no atmosphere, and were placed at a table beside an air conditioning unit which was very cold. We moved no problem. Then a fire drill closed the kitchen - understandable alright, but this made us late for our appointment which then lead to other problems. And when I checked the bill later, it had been done incorrectly. Disappointing for a special treat, probably best to leave it for the overnight guests.
Excellent food and service.
First time visiting Dublin. The shelbourne is a beautiful hotel and the saddle room just as lovely. When we first sat down we felt a bit rushed by the staff but after my husband asked them to give us some time they totally backed off. From then on the service was perfect. The food was delicious, we had the beef for two. A carving tray was rolled to our table and the waiter carved our meat and plated our meal. Very large portion, but delicious.
Fantastic service , ambience and food! Very helpful for a special . One of the top most prestigious elegant restaurants in Dublin! Will be back
Delicious food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere in luxurious settings. Will return 😊
We went to the Saddle Room for a celebration and it didn't dissapoint. The food was excellent and the service was discreet. Even the children's menu was varied and healthy.
It is obviously not cheap however it is good value for the food and atmosphere.
We will definitely return.
Lovely table at the end of the room, very attentive staff and good food.
We all ordered beef. The matire D came out to explain there would be an unforeseen delay of about twenty minutes but could he offer us a small plate in the interim. He returned with four helpings of fois gras. It was delicious and the gesture much appreciated
The saddle room rest is what it is 5 star we thouroughly enjoyed our meal couldn’t fault anything
discreet excellent service, quiet comfortable and lovely surroundings and an excellent vegitarian meal - full marks to the Saddle Room!
Food quality was fine but the service was very poor. Our waiter was friendly but untrained. He didn’t know how to time his interruptions, pour wine, or do basic service that you’d expect in a restaurant of this price range (with wine the meal was €275). The wine steward actually yelped out loud and physically corrected him at a nearby table when he began to use the decanter backwards (!). There is no reason or excuse for untrained staff in an expensive restaurant. The service was bad enough to distract and impair the meal.
Booked here for my family for my graduation day, a recommendation from people I work with. Was not disappointed, service was excelent and the food was top quality, will definitely be back
It was a lovely Father's day present to our dad. Thanks.
Food always excellent, one of my favourite restaurant, price is good in a 5 star hotel, 3 course meal €50， it was my friend’s Bday, he got a Bday dessert for free, only one things, nobody refills the water for us, they should look after the guest more.
It’s my go to for any occasion. Food and service excellent as always. The lamb was particularly good.
The best Restaurant in Dublin !!!! A slice of heaven on a plate. From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave it’s 5 Star all the way. The welcome, the ambience, the menu choice, the food, the service, the value ........
Found everything A1 staff very nice indeed, as l had young people with me maybe a chicken or beef dish could be included in the menu choice, (lunch) as the lamb and fish would not have been their first choice.....
Hadn’t been at the Shelbourne since it’s latest revamp - wonderments location and agreeable service for a quiet lunch. Went there twice this week and looking forward for my next visit. Highly recommend it
Very elegant rooms - lovely atmosphere - wonderful staff. Great Sunday Lunch!
Really enjoyed Sunday lunch here. Will be back. Wine, food and service was excellent!
The service was amazing and the food was incredible. Well worth the visit.
Always excellent. Discreet considerate service. Excellent food
We enjoyed our visit but would comment on the ridiculous charge for water. We only heard customers asking for Tap water after we had been served. It wasn't offered to us. The waitress just asked " still or Sparkling water" If we had know it was over €8 for a bottle of still water we would not have ordered it.
This is on point of principle. It doesn't matter how good a hotel is, this cost for water is extortionate.
Had a beautiful meal last Sunday to celebrate our anniversary with family. Everyone thought the food, service, ambiance was excellent so much so that we have booked it for another family occasion again. Definitely recommend this restaurant
Loveky long leisurely lunch , in a booth. Have eaten in the saddle room many times and never disappointed
My guests & I had a great time. Everything was excellent from the service to the food & wine!
Fantastic lunch, cant wait to return. A special place
Soup and Ham-hock starters delicious. Dover Sole off-the-bone had a lot of bones left in, this was mentioned to the maître-d when he enquired how everything was but he did nothing about it. Found the lamb shoulder portion with shallot and carrot puree to be very small.
Our server, Dagmara, we found to be excellent.
Overall considering we spent over €600 between the bar and restaurant we found it to be quiet expensive, especially since the diner who had the Sole hardly eat any of her main course.
Great experience. Outstanding seafood options.
excellence service as always............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. ....
We had a lovely evening and would highly recommend it.
Food is fantastic and everyone was so nice. Make sure you have a reservation.
Fabulous faultless experience every staff member from reception to servers to managment wonderful ...it has been a long time since we enjoyed something so much
EXCELLENT VALUE FOR LUNCH IN LOVELY SURROUNDINGS HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Lovely experience. Great food and excellent service. Would highly recommend
Good high end hotel food.
But a few flaws:
Tables for two are too small for two at dinner.
One of six sea scallops in an otherwise wonderful appetizer was over cooked and tough
Servers seemed to struggle to take care of everyone at the natural pace of the dinner
Despite flaws - Perfect for us as jet lagged travelers on our first night in Dublin.
