Super food, lovely, relaxed service and great value for money - we especially loved the Beef Cheek, and the cheeseboard. It's always great to be introduced to a new cheese; in this case the French Tomme Croquant, with a rind washed in walnut liquor, evident in every morsel. The well-priced Godillo Spanish white wine was exceptional.

It was unfortunate. When you are seated for nearly 30 minutes before someone comes to your table to take an order that sets the tone. When our server came by he asked if we were ready to order when we hadn’t even had a chance to order cocktails.

While the pace after was a bit slow it was tolerable, however you can’t get over the sense that you are being ignored. The staff was very nice, but probably came by our table 4 maybe 5 times in total over a 2 ½ hour dinner.

Finally, as vegetarians, normally when a chef modifies a dish to accommodate you, they will change it to keep it interesting. In this case they only removed what we believe were substantial elements to the dish and made no attempt to shift or modify anything.

In total, the food was OK, certainly not exceptional and service left a lot to be desired.

Food was very good & tasty
Service should have been more attentive - had to look around at times for assistance
Interesting that you ask about noise - restaurant was on 25-30% full BUT I had the endure the conversation of two men behind me ..... tables could be separated a little bit more.

We were enchanted by One Pico! The food is innovative, beautifully composed, and flawless. The staff are superbly trained: professional, attentive, but not intrusive. We had an early seating (jet lag) but we never felt hurried during the meal. I have booked fine restaurants through Open Table in Boston, Chicago, and New Orleans in the past year, but One Pico will stand out as the best overall dining experience of the past 12 months.

My first visit to one pico. Wonderful staff, friendly and not stuffy. Excellent food. Lobster ravioli to die for. Great wine list. Dawson car park opposite makes it very convenient. Will definitely go back.

I booked the table from Germany in advance and everything was perfectly arranged. The dishes and the wine were excellent, the service brillant, the atmosphere and the style were really outstanding. First I went there with a colleague and I returned a day later alone. I would always come back when I am in Dublin.

We were a little surprised how quiet the restaurant room was we arrived for Saturday lunch, but a few more tables were occupied after us giving a nice buzz to the room. We opted for the very reasonable €25 lunch but chose to upgrade and drinks brought up the cost considerably. We were lucky to have a gift voucher, so that certainly took the sting out of the tail. The food was delicious. Only the sweet dessert wasn't remarkable but that may have just been to our taste. Excellent friendly professional service without being stuffy. We would return.

One of the finest restaurants in Dublin and a great place to catch up with one of my oldest friends. Great decor, excellent service, best and freshest of Irish ingredients. If you have a special occasion this is a place to consider

In my opinion One Pico is overpriced and totally lacking in atmosphere. The dining room was less than half full, despite our reservation being for 8.30pm
on a Friday night.

The food quality was excellent but the service was not good. Staff chatting to each other in the lobby rather than attending to patrons - despite the fact that as early diners we were practically alone in the restaurant. The offer of drinks and taking of food orders were very slow.
