Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The store is a delight with incredible produce so we thought the Dining Room would be the perfect spot for a lovely dinner. The food was very good but the service really shocking. The restaurant was half full but we waited 1hr 10 minutes for...our first course. We ordered some glasses of wine and these and every course we were given went to the wrong diner! The steaks after a complaint arrived but instead of medium rare we’re very rare. I asked for some English mustard and was given Dijon!!! Such a shame….the staff just didn’t seem to care about the diners.More

We wanted somewhere nice to have lunch and popped in around 13:30. There was no problem with getting a table and the staff were very attentive. We had asparagus and chicken with a side of carrots. We were given a choice of bread beforehand and...a second helping too. We both chose the soda bread which was exceptionally delicious. So much so that we went back the next day and bought a loaf to take home. The meal itself was superb. It arrived in a sensible amount of time and was delicious. It was also sensibly priced. The next time we are in the area we will definitely go back. Well done everybody there.More

This restaurant sits atop a fancy food store. The food was delicious and the service very friendly. The place was rather loud though.

We hosted a meal for our daughter’s wedding in the Dining Room in Fallon and Byrne. It was extraordinary and beyond our expectations. Apart from the food (which was exceptional – everybody raved about the scallops as starters; and the steaks and cod as the...main courses) it was the service that made this meal exceptional. I cannot remember being at a meal where the staff were so attentive: they were ever-present yet unobtrusive in their timing of service and especially when topping up the wine. All of the staff were outstanding, and I hesitate to single individuals out, but have to say that the service provided by Sarah was unbelievably good: from the preparation, to the attention to detail, to the selection and pairing of the wines: I cannot praise her enough. All the others, including Sabryna and the waiting staff, and Dee and her colleagues in the Wine Cellar, were brilliant also. Our guests were full of praise and we are deeply indebted to everyone in Fallon and Byrne.More

Starters were tasteless , 20 euro for 3 tiny scallops with no flavour at all.For the mains I ordered a rib eye steak. 42 euro and was nearly cold coming out. Tiny pot of sauce with it. The waiter also forgot to give us bread...when we first arrived, so he brought it down with the mains... My wife had chicken terrine for a starter which was also tasteless. Her main was cod with shrimp , this was also luke warm. Deserts were OK. Sorbet and a chocolate cake. Overall very overpriced and disappointed with food ! A shame.More

I chose the restaurant for a family dinner having eaten at & loved Fallon & Byrne for 20 years. Sadly this week the food was well below what I had come to expect, cold, overcooked, over seasoned & over priced. I tried to eat my...scallop starter but could not as it was so over salted. The second one was not much better. I felt embarrassed as I had chosen the restaurant and the main topic of conversation was how bad the meal was.More

The dining experience was nice. The value at Fallon & Byrne is awful. I had a salmon starter which cost €18. The three 1x5cm slivers of salmon were beyond a joke expensive. Markup on the salmon has to be 1500%. The ribeye steak cost €42!...It was a decent cut of meat, good quality, but the size of the steak for a price higher than a fillet steak is crazy. Not sure it was even 200g. Again, I would say that the markup is around 800%. The cost of the cheapest glass of red wine is €11, with the average being around €14.50 I probably won’t go back to the restaurant unless the value improves considerably.More

Raw Dauphinoise potatoes served and not replaced when staff were advised they were not cooked. Beautiful venue and attentive staff, but food was surprisingly poor for a venue that has such a great reputation food hall, ( Very expensive though.)
