    Ireland's is a special place - the people make you feel like your part of the family and they always go above and beyond the expected service. The food is always perfect and we have never had anything that wasn't excellent. It is our go-to place for celebrations and when we have friends or business associates in town. This is our favorite place out west!!!!

    Great experience once again for my Birthday with the family. Irleand's is the perfect spot for special occasions or when you simply want an awesome steak. Great service and great foot. Location is a bit challenging for the first time going, but once you know where is it - you will return. Enrique Lopez the maitre'd always ensures a fantastic experience, kudos to him. only area they could improve is a bit more lighting in the dining room.

    We went to Ireland's to enjoy the Ft. Lauderdale Dining Out menu. The food was wonderful but the service was not. Once our server knew we were there for the Dining Out it seemed like his attitude toward our table changed. If it wasn't for the Manager stopping by several times during the evening, we wouldn't have seen anyone other that the person who brought our food to the table. Unfortunate, as we love Ireland's, but it will probably be awhile before we return. (BTW, kudos to the manager who was very attentive to all of the tables and very pleasant).

    We have dined at Ireland's numerous times and have always had a GREAT meal. This time was an exception! The wait staff was excellent, the restaurant very quiet(empty), and the wine list adequate. My wife ordered the petit filet and I the beef wellington. It's tenderloin, how bad can it be...tender but totally lacking in flavor. The sauce tasted like Heinz 57 sauce, terrible! The sides were ok, scalloped potatoes were pasty but the chorizo corn casserole was good. Not sure what has happened here, change of chef, new direction, not certain, but I have dropped it from my list of neighborhood gems to the mediocre at best list. Very sad!

    We had the most incredible experience possible thanks to the amazing service of Danny and his assistant who were above accommodating, generous, kind hearted and genuine. I used to manage waitstaff so you can imagine I was overjoyed to receive such excellent service. The food is amazing- the specialty breads and yummy butter like orange and mustard butter- delicious!! The crab soup was absolutely incredible. Real lump crab mixed with mascarpone that you coup mix into the tomato soup as you wish. The red snapper and salmon were outstanding. Desserts? Even better!!! It would be worth going for dessert and wine alone. Obviously well worth your time for a full dinner experience as well.

    Our server, Doug was truly wonderful. He recommended a wine we'd never have chosen, and he was absolutely correct in its working with the meal. He was very well versed in the menu, and made excellent recommendations there too. The manager was very warm, and welcoming and stopped by the table at least twice to ensure that all was well. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the reputation of the restaurant, nor the high quality of the service staff. The dinner consisted of the strangest Beef Wellington ever created, and the most crunchy "light breading" ever made. The presentation was obnoxious in the stacking of every item one on top of the other. We'd return for drinks and dessert, but not for the entree.

    It is sad when a $$$ Steakhouse can't properly cook a Porterhouse. And, the manager tells you that because "it was thick, it cannot be cooked evenly". "If you wanted it to be Medium Rare then you should have ordered it Rare. "the meat closest to the bone will be rarest and the area furthest away will cooked medium". Steak was medium rare at the bone,chalk-like consistency,well done at the ends and the filet was well done. Management was gracious enough to provide a mini desert. as the waiter who was EXCELLENT-Danny, announced "courtesy of Management" and apologized. In fairness, they did offer to replace the dinner which meant eating after the others were done. NOT FOR A CONNOISSEUR. Nickname was not my choice for this review

    1st time visit for us on my wife's birthday. I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in and saw the soft, elegant ambiance, great food smells and finely appointed dining set-ups. All of the service assistants were gracious and of good cheer. Our primary waiter made the evening very enjoyable. We started off with a crab cake appetizer which was delicious. Then, I ordered the beef wellington which was the best I have had in years. My wife enjoyed the mustard glazed salmon. My complements to the chef! We finished the evening with a tasty desert sampler. We look forward to returning and bringing guests with us the next time we visit the 5 star restaurant.

    This was a return visit. Our initial experience was that this was a special place for special occasions. Our return visit 2 days ago could not have been more disappointing except for the service and hostess. First the good; the service could not have been better. The wait staff was attentive without being annoying. Their concern for diners having a positive experience was evident. The hostess is a delightful person who makes you feel special upon arrival. Now the bad; the 2 steaks ordered at our table were burnt, the salads tasted like something prepared at your local Publix and the dessert was on a par just below Costco. We frankly felt like this was a waste of a lot of money. Based on our experience we will not be going back.

    Got to thei restaurant on time, our table wasn't ready. We had to wait. After we were seated had to request for a waiter. We were seated for a good 15 minutes before he showed up. Everything was rushed, waiters were practically running. My steak was over cooked , I was never asked how the meat was. Not what I expected. For the price is not worth it, stay home and have a nice pizza. I was so dissapointed that the following night we went to Ruth Chris A+ great experience!

    Modeled after Chops or Ruth's, Irelands is set up the same way. They provide an intimate dining experience in a space limited property that emphasizes the quality of their food. You will find the service good and prices moderate. We would recommend and would return if in the area if we were looking for a meal experience beyond casual dining.

    The food was amazing, service was great till it got busy, then it took 20min to get the check; but the wait staff was very pleasant . Plan on $100.00 a person easy, the décor was ok, ,BUT what ruins the whole thing is with even only a FEW people dining it IS so SO SO LOUD that you Can't even have a conversation with the person right next to you. But the food was good.

I have had meals at many fine restaurants, including Keens and Peter Luger's in New York City, Charlie Trotter's in Chicago and Galatiore's in New Orleans, and the overall experience at Ireland's was superb.

    We had reservations for 7 pm and got right in. Waiter had a few recommendations and was attentive but not overly so. Wanted petite filet prepared medium which varies wildly depending on restaurant. He said it would be pink in center but not red. He was accurate and the filet was sumptious. My husband had the salmon which was prepared with a tomato sauce which was a bit strange. However, he said the salmon was excellent even though he did not care for the sauce. Had a lovely dining experience. Only thing we did not like was our table. There was plenty of room in other areas, which later filled but our table was too small. Should have asked to move. Our own fault.

    Ireland's is our go-to restuarant whenever we want an A-plus dining experience. The staff is warm and welcoming and the food is delicious. The Buffalo filet was tender and favorable.The Truffle mac and cheese (or the lobster mac and cheese) seemed to appear on every table! Yummy! From starters to desserts you just can't make a wrong choice. Simply put yourselves in General Manager, Enrique Lopez' hands and he'll treat each guest like family!!

    My wife and I do not eat at hotel restaurants - typically they are overpriced and mediocre. But Ireland's was a real treat. We were referred to Ireland's by friends of ours - and went there last Friday for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant is tucked away in the back corner, and you do have to walk through the lobby and the main hotel restaurant to get to it, but ambiance is nice and quiet. We had 7:30pm reservations, and they were honored. One suggestion: larger parties tend to be seated "upstairs" behind the bar, smaller parties are in front and to the side of the bar - so if you are looking for quieter meal make sure you ask for the lower seating area. Get the spinellus if you area rib eye person. Lobster fries to die for!
