Restaurant is nicely laid out and staff are helpful. Colder table at the window were offered to us first and we requested to move. Food was good.

Great food and super service. The brussel sprouts side dish was a huge hit! Next time we are ordering a few of them as they were devoured! The prosecco was a little overpriced compared to other restaurants. Espresso martini, as mentioned by our waiter, was a perfect end/dessert. The service as great, the staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.

Great location for going to the Bord Gais for a show, decor is beautiful and the service was great. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive and made some good suggestions. The food was good, lovely starter and desert (I very much recommend the honey cake sunday the lemon cream was a lovely touch). Main was just ok, as was the wine. I went for a non alcoholic wine as I was driving, and I think the bottle may not have been opened for a long time since the last person ordered it. It smelled a bit funny and there was sediment in the bottom. Overall price reflected the order.

Started well but unfortunately the service let it down. We waited a long time for our mains to be delivered and it was obvious they had been sitting for a while in the kitchen as a crust had developed on the food. The waitress never came near us after taking the order so we couldn't follow up on the delay nor notify her that there was an issue with the chicken when it did arrive. Drinks nor water were replenished. When we did get a chance to tell our waitress about the issue at the end, it was not handled well.

We were quite disappointed. While our waiter was friendly and attentive some of the time, we were waiting 40 minutes for our food leaving us rushing to make the show we were attending and also had to wait in order to pay. The food itself also wasn't great. My mother's burger was undercooked and my chicken sandwich (which I had expected to be a burger) was just plain chicken strips on leaves and bread. I had been looking forward to Mackenzie's after hearing good things and having enjoyed other Press Up restaurant and am disappointed that it didn't live up to it's name.
