Bouncy floorboards where very annoying. My chair lifted up and down each of the 50 times the waiter walked past....
Nice decor. Halloumi was good but Korean pork wrap didn't taste at all korean, was just a pork wrap.

Everything was really lovely...apart from the food - which was dripping with grease. Even the fries looked like they had been deep-fried 1/2 a dozen times.

I would go again but I'd stick to a cocktail instead.

It’s a lovely experience really. Staff not very efficient. Not a very good reception in arrival. No at all friendly. Lots of different waiting staff asking the same questions at the table. Food was nice. Ordered desserts but they didn’t arrive. Cocktails nice too and nice linen napkins. Good music and nice and warm in the bar and cinema.

Service was ok, drinks and food were good. Would highly recommend risotto balls, would NOT recommend chicken “tacos”. Just a chicken goujon with mayo on a tortilla- could make tastier at home. Drinks were nice and strong, (if considering it) get the Stella Margarita!!!!!

We booked in after a movie. The venue was cold. My partner had to keep her coat on. When we complained we were told it was because we were sitting close to the window. It was quite uncomfortable for our entire stay. We ordered food and cocktails. When our food came down it was completely different than what we ordered. (1 burger instead of 2 and cheese fritters which we didn't order). Our cocktails didn't arrive till midway through our meal. My wife asked for some straws but only got them 25 mins later when her drink was nearly finished. At the end of the meal we ordered dessert (1 ice cream sundae). After a wait of over 30 mins we called the waiter. It then arrived within a few minutes. It was obviously forgotten about. A lovely venue. Pity about the discomfort and poor service.

The food was, as occurs regularly in this location, almost inedible. The chicken tacos were burnt, smothered in too much garlic sauce and left me feeling unwell all eve. The menu hasn’t changed since the Stella cocktail club opened and the quality of the food is shocking. Most fast food burger places would produce better food.

Fabulous experience, only let down was no tonic in stock to go with the extensive gin selection. An issue with delivery it seems. A savvy manager/bar staff would have popped to Dunne’s across the road to pick up intermediary stock as to not disappoint customers. However, brilliant and unique overall as part of the full Stella experience.

As we didn't have time for a pre-show meal, I was very pleasantly surprised to see the diner menu was available in the Club bar - and all of our dishes were delicious! The staff are friendly, professional and very helpful. The cocktails are AMAZING! A special mention to Denis and Erin, whose talents made sure we were happily tipsy by the end of the night.. we had made reservations for drinks before the movie, and made another reservation for afterwards, when heading down to the cinema! PERFECT venue for a 5 star date night!

I would recommend the stella cocktail club for its ambience and art deco style but it lets itself down on food offer, food service and the size of its cocktails ( check out platform bray menu) and the length you wait for them!! Our chicken tenders were ok but came with no honey and mustard dressing or our chips, my friends prawns arrived 10 mins after ours and the 6 Portions of chips after that. Our parmesan fries were loaded with garic dressing so much that we lifted top layer off and my friend who garlic doesnt even agree with was shocked to find it. It actually doesnt mention garlic on menu at all. We waited 15 mins for our 1st round of drinks which is bad for a place specialising in cocktails . Your waiting staff were your saving grace they were polite , considerate ( we had asked for our 2 bookings to sit together as friends birthday on our booking forms) but they then had to deal with us questioning them for most of our visit. The manager took my friends distress over the garlic on board and reduced the bill but actually if the food had been up to standard we would have happily paid. My advice is as a business where food is part of it is to sort quickly as your customers will only return so many times for the setting and ambiamce

Visited Stella Cocktail Club before heading on into movie. We were seated straight away given drinks menu and orderd taken about 15 mins after arriving. We had also requested food menu. We ordered food. Our drinks arrived about 30 mins after arriving, We ordered another one straight away. The barman who seemed to be working alone was under extreme pressure. Our food arrived about 50 mins after ordering. My own order seemed to have some of the filling missing from the taco. Our side orders arrived 10 mins after mains and had additional dressing on it (not mentioned in menu). The floor staff were doing their very best but if the barman was under pressure and kitchen under pressure, it's had to keep everything moving along. We had ordered some more cocktails on arrival of food and managed to get them before heading down to the movie. The ambient atmosphere and beautiful décor could make this a perfect evening if the issues above could be addressed (the Manager on the night adjusted our bill to reflect our issues with food). Sadly this is not the first time we have had issues with the food....

I did see people ordering cocktails that were not on the list and there was no problem getting these.

We went at a busy time before Downton Abbey screening in The Stella Theatre (which we were also going to) but we waited at least 20 mins for our drinks (one beer one cocktail) and then another 15 mins to receive the bill (we asked twice)
Hoping the service will be better next time as we love the Stella Cocktail Club! The food and drinks were really good just pity about the wait for the drinks and bill. We’ll definitely be back again soon though!
