    We celebrated our anniversary here. The waiter was 11/10; attentive, kind, helpful, friendly. Food was really tasty and the atmosphere was perfect for a fun Saturday night. The views over the water at Grand canal are stunning as well. Highly recommend! The brownie was spectacular too.

    Incredibly expensive - paid over 70 euro for a glass of wine , 3 course and coffee for 1 at 5pm thinking I was on the pre-theatre menu . Seemingly that ended day before but was still on their website ?? Won’t be back , food was fine but zero value unfortunately

    Lovely food - great service - slight mix up with main course order as one person had requested a dish without mushrooms. Message didn’t get passed on but was remedied quickly and they took the dish off the bill which was above and beyond what we expected. We were right in front of the kitchen which was nice to see but we would probably ask for a quieter table next time. Will be back soon! Overall a great experience thanks!

    Our reservation was for 6, unfortunately it was 630 by the time we arrived (having spent an hour and half in traffic!!!) We were going to the Theatre & were having the pre-theatre dinner. We took the good advice to have main course and dessert, which was a good plan! I had the risotto, which was delicious & my husband had Sea bass, which was also delicious. Dessert, which was lovely but unfortunately we rushed, - and have decided next time we would make sure to arrive (at least) on time - if not earlier. A lovely experience and definitely Charlotte Quay is a must next time we are going to Bord Gais Theatre.

    Service was fast and efficient ,could have been friendlier, the food was more or less tasteless .Mussels over cooked and the so call sauce was at the bottom of the bowl and wasn't poured over the mussels .Sea bass over cooked ,my friends mash was totally tasteless .My belief is that the kitchen was overwhelmed and rushing orders out . we have eaten here before and it was a lot better .Wouldn't recommend to anuone and particularly on an expected busy day .

    Very good service, nice food (menu was quite limited but it was brunch as opposed to dinner!) Food quite reasonably priced but cost of wine was a bit steep! We had an enjoyable experience overall but it wouldn’t be top of our list to revisit.

    We went to Charlotte Quay to celebrate a special occasion. We got there and it was quiet, they welcomed us well and we thought it would be a nice experience. We got starters, which to be fair were ok. However, main dishes were not what we had expected at all. We were in 4 people. We got two seabass with potatoes and prawns, one pork belly and a butternut squash risotto. All the dishes were plain, no flavour in it. Mine didn’t taste like butternut squash at all. Seabass was ok, but the potatoes and prawns were very dry and didn’t taste fresh. We were very disappointed and no one came back to our table to check on us after we got the food. We had to catch one of the waiters attention to ask for some salt. We left most of the food on the plates and politely gave some feedback to the waitress when she came to clean the table, but she didn’t seem very interested in listening to it and just said sorry. At the end she took the fries (we got two portions as sides) off the bill. But fries were good. It was the only thing we finished. We paid 220, which we could have happily paid if the food was what we expected it to be. But according to our experience it was way overpriced and not worthy it. Unfortunately we don’t think we will come back again.

    Excellent pre-theatre meal in a great restaurant. I had Beef Shin Croquettes as a starter, but they were not as nice as expected. Great seabass main course - yummmm! We were there for a pre-theatre dinner, so was a bit rushed. I'll be back for a proper evening meal with more time. Recommended!

    We stayed at an Airbnb just a block away and had dinner here the first night we arrived. I accidentally left my wallet with credit cards and cell phone on the table when I left and the bartender found it and literally followed me down the street to return it. Above and beyond!! And the food was so good we returned a few nights later and had dinner again on the covered patio. Perfect!

    Overall it was an enjoyable experience. However, service was very 'hit and miss'. Orders were confused and needed to be clarified. The bill was incorrect and needed correction. Short staffing was evident as pressure of work was evident. The bar area was a sea of used glass ware. The waiter assigned to us was more than polite and helpful. We really appreciated having him. Thank you
