Great, as always!
Had a great time here! We got the wings and mussels, which were fresh and tasty. The cocktails were incredible. We felt very safe here as we were at a reasonable distance from everyone and the staff thoroughly cleaned each table and chair before the next group of people sat down. Looking forward to going back!
Met my friend for dinner here and we were pleasantly suprised. Firstly, the safety precautions in place were great and we felt very comfortable. The food was incredible and delicious while the service was friendly with great recommendations. My new favourite spot and look forward to visiting again :)
The ambience was good; it was cozy and quiet on the 1st floor. However, the cheesecake we had for dessert was a let down. The biscuit (base of the cheesecake) was very hard, which led my partner and I to believe that it wasn't fresh, but merely defrosted cheesecake.
Everything great except the food could have been better but really we were there for the cocktails which were amazing . Really chilled atmosphere and tables were well spaced out, service very friendly too
No vegetarian dishes. Good stuff overall
Lovely ambience and excellent service. Food was very well priced and good selection on the menu.
Loved this place, will definitely be back.
Brilliant place, very good food and really liked the design of the place, very good customer service aswell. Always filling our water and making sure we were good for everything.
Super spot, well worth a visit. Will definitely be back :)
Food and drinks were lovely. Interior of the restaurant was
Felt very safe and protected in the lucky duck,
Absolutely brilliant, our server Sid was fantastic and we honestly felt so safe. We honestly had to say it to the staff at the end that we were treated so well. Honestly brilliant service, well done!!
Wonderful food and staff were so friendly thank you
The staff were so helpful. I was satisfied that all regulations were adhered to. It was a great atmosphere and I only wish we were allowed stay longer. I'll definitely be back
Great place Lovely night out
The waitress was very adamant that we leave on time which I understand but it made everything very rushed at the end I don’t think an hour and 45 minutes is enough time if u want 3 courses because the food takes a bit to arrive
I can’t believe I’ve never been in here before. Went last week with 2 friends for food and to sample (too many of) the cocktails!
The food is amazing, the cocktails are A1 and the staff are lovely too. Can’t wait to go back
We had a magical evening at “The Lucky Duck”, true to name we felt like very lucky little duckies indeed!
I couldn’t recommend the place enough the facilities were well maintained and the staff greeted us with the warmth of an old family friend.
Incidentally, I would hope that anyone lucky enough to find themselves in the Luckiest of Ducks would order a hot whiskey and snuggle up away from the cold winter’s wind xxx
Nice atmosphere with roaring fire. Food was good too and very friendly staff. Will be back
Great service, delicious food, amazing cocktails
This is a bit of a hidden gem. Located right in the heart of Dublin City Centre. With super friendly staff and a wide variety of boojie drink options it's definitely worth the visit.
Lovely restaurant, great staff. Pity about the time restrictions
Really enjoyed our meal and cocktails. Service was excellent and the ambience was lovely. I felt that the portion sizes were quite small for the small plates, and I ended up ordering a second round of the buttermilk chicken. It came in a tiny bowl for €7.50. Other than that, everything else was lovely and I would definitely go again. A great place to meet friends or for a date.
We had a lovely evening at the Lucky Duck. The cocktails were delicious and the food was good although the Beef Torchon could have used a little more sauce. Very tasty! It was quite quiet which affected the ambience a little but that is to be expected in the current times. Overall we really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend and come back!
We had hake risotto for mains. Delicious starter was sliders & prawn brucetta, all food was greasy cooked perfectly & tasty.
The Lucky Duck is well set up for serving its customers while restrictions are in place. We were very well looked after, staff was friendly and the service was excellent. We'll be back - thanks!
Spacious and friendly staff, along wil good food and plesant service
Great place for an evening snack & a drink In a nice chilled out atmosphere. Service was fast and friendly.
Great night with very food atmosphere and decor but some things annoying - charged for extra bread for our cheese board!
Apart from that really enjoyed the night and the staff was lovely
Meg was a wonderful server! She accommodated all of our strange cocktail requests and was very friendly! The cocktails were beautiful, food was lovely and for a reasonable price. Would definitely go again!
Incredible - perfect food, the best Old Fashioned I’ve had in a long time and great service. Handing the Covid situation incredibly well!
This was a game of two halves. The starters - ham croquettes and fried chicken were very good. The heirloom carrots with hummus and hazelnuts was good but lacked intensity. We opted for a 25 euro sharing meat and cheese board for our main . What arrived was pilled on top of each other. It contain a Parma ham, chorizo and Salami. The cheeses presented were a Red Leicester, a cheddar and a Brie. All had been pre cut and were dried out. For the 25 euro price we expected an artisan selection and instead received something that you would get in a prepackaged deli selection from a chain super market. I politely mentioned it to the waiter and revived a defensive and hostile response. The decor and ambiance in this restaurant is really lovely - it’s a shame that it was let down by lazy cheffing and profiteering with the sharing plate.
Amazing cocktails, food and atmosphere, highly recommend😀
Lovely place, great food and cocktails!! Really recommended for a date or cosy catch-up with a friend.
Very helpful staff, subdued place, very well renovated
Excellent service and great attention to the Covid-19 guidelines. Felt very safe and had a lovely experience. Decor is fab and cocktails are delicious.
So happy we found this little hidden gem and will definately be back in the future.
Great refurbishment. Very tastefully done. We had a lovely waitress. I think her name was Megan. The food was lovely. All fresh and nicely presented. We finished our visit in the snug just so we could see a bit of downstairs. The barman was very good and great as the meet and greet. I will definitely go back.
Great food and atmosphere, decent value. If I was being picky a more extensive menu would have been good but what we had was excellent.
