    Steak was flavourless. For the money you pay you expect better. The one thing that was going for it was the degree it was fried to. Can't complain. As rare as it gets. But that was the end of good things. Balsamic reduction and chimichurry did not lift the taste of plain meat and flavour was flat. Chips are like something you would get in a chipper when they hit the end of the bag. Dry, bland and small. Wine was nice that's if you fancy going for overpriced blandness to enjoy a nice glass of wine. The waiters never bothered to ask if everything was ok. If there was salt or pepper mills on the table - even that would have worked but they served the steak with a butter knife... can't care less. Disappointing.

    The GraysonResponded on September 12, 2022Hi There, Thank you for your review of The Grayson, Could you please , if it's not too much trouble, let me know why you gave 3 stars for service? I would like to be given the opportunity to rectify the problem, you can contact me at eugen@thegrayson.ie, Kind regards, Eugen

    Overall pleasant, but with no notes taken for the tea & coffee orders, the waiters came back 3 times to check what we’d ordered. one coffee didn’t arrive at the start. One meal needed re-heating. The food itself was good, lovely place, friendly service. Just little things could make it a much better experience.

    Came across this place from a recommendation of a friend. This is a high quality restaurant in the centre of town which doesn’t seem to have the hurried hustle and bustle of the others. Food was very good, staff friendly and attentive. I’d definitely go back.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at the Grayson. The staff were fantastic. We were celebrating a staff member meeting a big milestone and they were really helpful and provided a really nice finish touch to the meal. The food, the drinks, atmosphere, ambience and attention to deal and the staff were friendly, attentive. A fantastic experience - we will be back! Highly recommended :)

    Tasty lunch, three mains, one diet coke, two glasses of red, bottle of sparkling (including tip) was 80euro. Not the cheapest but not too bad either. The food was tasty and the decor is lovely. Service was very good. A little lacking ambiance as it was a quiet lunch. Would return again.

    Very disappointed in the table we were offered, right up against the fireplace. Then we were moved to a high table. We were uncomfortable so we just paid for drinks and left.

    Nice food but for business lunch, way too long waiting for food. Sat at 12.30pm. Our order wasn’t taken until 12.45pm and we were still waiting on food 12.25. Nice food and lovely coffee but for business lunch, maybe keep in mind an hour start to finish is what I would be looking for. Also, quite cold and no atmosphere in restaurant room. Back room music was not on. Felt quite cold.

    The GraysonResponded on August 20, 2022Hi Brendan, Sincere apologies that your lunch took too long, We are normally very aware that people generally only have an hour, so I do not know what happened on this occasion, but I will look into it. We do hope to welcome you back again, and give us a second chance, Best wishes, The Grayson team

    No atmosphere on a Thursday evening. Initially seated on 2nd floor with no other customers…request to move downstairs to discover only one other table occupied. Perhaps an unfortunate quiet night? Food was bang average. Wine was good. Service was good but no other tables to wait on so would expect no issues.

    Lovely setting although if we go again, we would ask to sit looking out onto Stephen’s Green rather than the fire escape out the back. The food was lovely especially the prawn starter and the feta and fig starter. The mushroom gnocchi was too creamy so I could not finish it.

    The building and decor is lovely, but seemed to sprawl too much and was deathly quiet in our section. Felt awkward and soulless, which is a shame as the food was fantastic.

    Lovely place let down a little by the staff, there was lots of bar staff working but it took an age to get someone to take an order and it wasn't busy. We sat outside first and had to go bar inside as there wasn't any sign of someone coming to take an order. The restaurant staff were a lot better and the food was very tasty.

    The GraysonResponded on August 5, 2022Hi Mark, Thank you for leaving a kind review, I will highlight this issue with our Bar manger, But I am glad in the end that you had an enjoyable evening with our restaurant staff, I hope we will see you again, in the not too distant future, Best wishes, Zelda
