“Best restaurant in Cork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I love this place. Its got a great atmosphere, especially when the piano is being played on a Friday evening. The staff are super nice and give great advice when choosing wines. There's always a selection of freshly-baked breads served at the table. All the food is wonderful, but the steak is the creme de la creme of the place. Make sure you leave room for dessert though - their sticky toffee pudding is one of the best I've ever had!

“60th birthday party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

We recently availed of the back room for a 60th birthday party in the Boardwalk. From the beginning to the end, the management and staff were the most hospitable. We were encouraged to decorate the room to our liking and the staff were more than happy to help us. On the night itself, we had a delightful prosecco and cosmopolitan reception as one entered the room. A fully stocked bar, and an elegantly and classically decorated room was welcomed by the 80+ guests. We had uploaded plenty of photographs and had played this slideshow on the screen that was made available to us. Definitely a highlight!The food we decided on was King Tiger Prawns, chicken goujons, chips,BBQ ribs and chicken wings. The food was plentiful and delicious. The only negative I have is that the prawns were a spring roll effect which we had not expected. (but there are other finger food options on the menu...we struggled to decide, they were so good!). Other than that, the food was very tasty and presented well. We had brought in our own dj which was a great success. The boardwalk also offer their own dj at a really competitive price. The area itself has a good variety, armchairs, highchairs, low chairs and of course a good sized dancefloor! The Boardwalk was the perfect venue for this occasion. In particular, the manager Margaret was fantastic!! She was very friendly, helpful, professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. After such a warm welcoming, my partner and I look forward to trying out the restaurant itself in the near future! :) Will definitely keep this venue in mind when organizing upcoming occasions...I would highly recommend the Boardwalk :)

“A disappointing visit.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Came as part of a large group and left disappointed after our visit due to very poor service.

Good points: good value mothers day menu and tasty starters and desserts.

Bad points:the service we received was very poor. We were continously ignored by staff and left waiting for long periods even when the restaurant was quiet. A perfect example of this was when the waitress took all the tablecloths off the tables, reset the tables etc over a 20 + minute period. She repeately looked at us and we were clearly finished our dessert but we had to go hunt down another member of staff in a different area for teas/coffees. The same happened earlier where one person was left waiting 15/20 mins for bread for their pate while everyone else had finished their starters.
