We arrived to an almost empty restaurant so atmosphere was lacking. The staff were pleasant however the food was a let down. My husband and daughter ordered chicken wings, my daughter said they were horrible so my husband ate both portions. My pate was ok. The mains of lasagne was nothing special my risotto was very heavy so I could only eat half. The pannacotta and tiramisu were delicious. We did not complain as it was a special occasion for my daughter. My husband was then physically sick all night, we assumed it was the chicken wings. Very disappointed as you were recommended to us.

It was just OK. Nothing to write home about.
We had the 26€ menu. My pasta was really just ok. Huge portion. Partner’s pizza prob could have been cooked a bit longer. My tiramisu was lovely and the wine was just ok.

Four of us went to NoLIta on Saturday for dinner. I had reserved a table at 6.15. We got there and was informed after we had finished our food at 7:40 that they needed the table back for 8. We were never told this and had we been told this we would have booked somewhere else as we had no time after our dinner to chat and relaxed. Instead we were rushed. The service wasn’t great as we felt we were being rushed the whole time. The food wasn’t the best either. A friend had the Caesar salad and her chicken tasted like plastic and the croutons were soggy.

Met with 3 friends for lunch. Menus had something for everyone although ‘brunch’ menu only available at weekends. Portions were generous. My roasted veg salad was disappointing. Vegetables were from a jar, previously roasted. Seating & place settings v generous for 4 persons. Service was non intrusive & good humoured. Toilets very very clean too.

Firstly, we booked the table having access to the full menu online. At no point were we made aware that because we would be eating on Sunday evening (and as far as I am now aware, Sunday in general) the full menu was not on offer. Only the set menu was available. This would have been fine had we been aware prior to booking and could have chosen for ourselves whether we wished to dine here. When this issue was raised, staff were friendly although not particularly apologetic and told us "the deal is still available".

The food that we did order was generally fine with the exception of one of the pasta dishes that was drastically under-seasoned leaving it tasting rather bland. Otherwise the food was lovely.

The atmosphere and ambience was lovely, the bar/restaurant area is well laid out and although is a large establishment, gives a pleasing feel of intimacy.

Finally the drinks menu is extensive and has something to suit all palates.

Altogether, a nice restaurant with fair food, and very nice drinks. However, communication about the menus need to be changed, and service could be better. I wouldn't however rush back, as there are many other places in Dublin with significantly better food for not significantly more money.

Came with friends for the early bird meal - half opted for starter and main, the other starter and dessert. The starters and half of the mains were brought at the same time and the desserts brought at the same time as the other mains, having all worked in restaurants as servers ourselves we were shocked by this and felt as though we were being rushed out the door from the minute we arrived. There was another reservation for our table later in the evening (2½hrs later) so there was no need for such a rush, had high expectations after looking on the NoLIta website and social media pages and the décor was lovely but overall we were disappointed with the service and the food was overpriced for it was, unfortunately won't be returning soon.

Disappointed in this. Booked a table for dinner after seeing the menus online. When we got there we got an early bird menu. I asked if we could have the a la carte as well but were told no that it did not start until 7pm. I have to say this is a first, I have never been to a restaurant where would could not get the a la carte menu. It did not say this when booking and there was nothing on their website to say that only early bird was available before 7. I would not have booked if I had known as what we wanted to eat was on the a la carte menu.
Service not good, waiter was rude who told us we could not get the menu. Food was very slow coming out. The food was good which is what saved the evening. We had to ask two different people for the bill.
Overall disappointing, not sure if i would go back. If I do, would be after 7pm!

So disappointing! Booked as a treat but failed to impress. Ordered pizzas which tasted very dry (no sauce on base?) Chips came 20 mins after pizzas. Staff didnt seem to care that the chips took so long. We Ordered our favourite cocktail (Pornstar Martini) which should come with a shot of proscecco. Instead the barman put the proscecco in the drinks. The drinks only filled 3/4's of the glass. The place was empty with 3 members of staff. The toilets were horrendous! Terrible smell and toilet paper everywhere. This was at 4.30 pm so completely inexcusable. Sadly, I won't be back! Embarrassed that I took my friends there.
