    hi,the grayson I had the pleasure of coming to the Grayson with my friends to celebrate our anniversary. The shopkeeper ignored my anniversary and didn't even say a word of blessing. The service really let me down. This is my last meal at this restaurant,no next time,so disappointed.

    The GraysonResponded on June 1, 2022Hi Tani, I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your evening with us because we did not wish you happy anniversary, The waiter who looked after you was very confident that you and your guests had a very enjoyable evening regardless. He feels he certainly deserved more than the 1 star rating for service. We hope to welcome you back again sometime, if you would join us again. Happy Anniversary, The Grayson Team

    We were in a dark room.at the top of the building. The music was good but too loud Food was fine but completely over priced. For example a side of mash to go with the salmon cost €5.50 which is crazy. It should be included and made the dish cost over €30. I wouldn't rush back.

    Style over substance. Very average fayre with less than average service. It could be easily elevated to above average if someone cared about the details of the product instead of profit. Unfulfilled opportunity here and we left disappointed at its mediocrity.

    Food very good and decent value. Front of house welcome and attention very good. Room was a little life less for a Saturday lunch. Was hoping for something more atmospheric. Service a little sluggish to be honest especially as the room was quiet.

    The decoration is nice and the place is really quiet and cosy. That's why, I had chosen this place. However, The service was poor... We waited a long time to be served... At the beginning we looked for the cocktails list ourselves, then we looked for the waitress to order.. Then, we waited a long time to get the main dishes and we did not receive in the same time. The steak was too burnt whereas we ordered medium rare but they changed it. The price is really expensive to have these products. It wasn't a very good restaurant.. Nevermind...

    Unfortunately there was no one in the entrance reception when we arrived and we waited for a while checking whether we'd booked the right day, we had to go upstairs to find a staff member to seat us - the back bar we sat in was empty and no real ambiance for a while which was odd for 7.30/8pm but after an hour or so there was a few more people, music & dimmed lights so it was nicer then, the service staff were excellent, very attentive and friendly, and the food & drinks were very nice too. The actual restaurant portion looked to have a very nice atmosphere when we walked through.
