    Overall not a great experience, from the seat to the very poor pasta. Very expensive for what it was. Not good and won’t ever recommend it.

    Rosa Madre is quite the best Italian restaurant I’ve ever been to in Dublin. The food was outstanding and the service is great! Also, the staff is very committed and helpful. The location is amazing.

    First time in Rosa Madre. We had such a fabulous meal this evening. The service was excellent. They were very considerate of one of our party's dairy intolerance. We loved everything from beginning to end. A little on the pricer side but it is totally worth the treat..we look forward to visiting again.

    The food was glorious right down to the last morsel. The wines were exceptional and the service was second to none. The ambiance and pageantry was most enjoyable. We would eat there more than often if we lived in Dublin.

    Excellent experience, though I can’t give 5 stars as unfortunately they run out of catch of the day that I was longing for (the Irish sole that I chose was gorgeous anyhow). I’d certainly recommend this restaurant (very rich whine list, albeit somewhat pricey)

    Extremely overpriced for what you get. Several of us ordered squid ink risotto with scallops which was delicious however the scallops were minuscule. Larger than a bay scallop but very very small. Also the wine list which is voluminous is extremely overpriced. I often spend a lot of money for a nice dinner but we were all surprised by the small volume of protein. Service and ambience were nice.

    The staff went above and beyond to ensure that our dining experience was romantic, intriguing and exciting. The chefs cooked our fish perfectly tender, our oysters were paired with a mignonette that added the perfect touch of flavor to the dish, the crab cakes with caviar were so fresh; delicious; and unique, the wine was a great pairing with our meal as well and was not very expensive at all. Our meal was spectacular and exceeded my every expectation. Rosa Madre has proven to be the single best place to dine in Ireland.
