Great food, decor and ambiance. Would give a 4 only for the fact as a coeliac i was quite restricted on options versus other restaurants. What I had was gorgeous and my friends really enjoyed their food. I would highly recommend for non coeliacs.

Very fancy place. Wide selection of beers and (tapas) menu with a lot of options, also for vegetarians. The food is good but not excellent, certainly not the main reason to go there. However, considering the atmosphere, the service, the selection of beers, cocktails and spirits, I would definitely recommend this place.

We were in from Canada and the Open Table entry states that bookings will be put into a vault. However it did not mention that the vaults were not open on Sundays. So when we arrived we were placed by the smoky patio with the door left open to the cold all night and our server had to be waved down each time we needed to order.

This was hands down the best meal I've had in Dublin. The tapas menu was varied and interesting, and everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. Highlights included seared tuna with a sticky soy glaze, beef croquettes with blue cheese sauce, and whole soft shell crab. The beers were all really good and paired nicely with the food. The atmosphere was terrific too, sitting in the vaults was an experience by itself.

Ireland tends to serve large portions so we were very happy to find this tapas restaurant where we could scale down our dinner a bit without sacrificing well prepared food. The service was great and the food excellent.

If you pass by the restaurant on the street level you’ll see lots of young people drinking good beer. But since we had a reservation we were led downstairs to a very old stone storage area that has been refurbished. This helped make out dinner even more special.

I ordered charred sweetcorn, it was cold, uncharred and covered in butter. Not nice!
Hallumi is already salty, no need to salt the batter and the Beeramisu was a total disappointment. Beer sorbet was delicious, the “tiramisu” was the worst thing I’ve tasted in a while. Two nice concepts, poor execution.

Wow! Urban is the bomb! Delicious and innovative tapas and the wine list, whiskey and cocktail menu is so much fun to peruse. Check this place out, we chose to eat in the cellar buy you can eat upstairs as well. It’s located in a repurposed warehouse that also houses the fantastic and popular Irish Immigration experience which is definitely a must see!

They didn’t have the wine we wanted. The food came out too quickly, we were rushing to eat as there was no room on the table for the food we had ordered & it arrived in an unusual order for tapas, with the flat bread coming last. No-one came to see if everything was ok with the food either. The tapas area was half empty yet we were sat next to a noisy group who had not pre-booked their table, as we had. The decor was stunning but don’t like the concept of unisex toilets in a restaurant. Unfortunately we will not eat here again.

The venue is stunning. The food and service were excellent! The truffle polenta fries are to die for. The Halloumi is amazing. The charred corn with aoili and pistachio is worth the awkwardness! Incredibly tasty! The dessert, black sesame parfait, there are no words to describe this heavenly concoction with refreshing yuzu gelato and contrasting peppery meringue! Will definitely be coming back!

Not going to bash an establishment over one poor service but went Sunday afternoon when it was relatively quiet and the waiter just seemed like he wasn’t interested in being at work, we asked for a side dip of truffle mayo and we had to remind him 3 times as he had forgotten and in the end another colleague of his had to get it for us, we then asked for dessert menus and we had to ask twice and took over 15mins to get them, again same waiter, I ordered dessert and when I received my dessert I had no cutlery so I waited patiently, in the end I’m guessing the floor manager had to get me a spoon for my beeramisu which was fantastic likewise with the rest of our food, but what topped it for me was when the bill came, I was paying by card and when I decided to not leave a tip which I rarely do, the waiter replies ‘oh, ok then!’ He just seemed surprised that even though it was clear we weren’t having the greatest of service, he reckoned he deserved a tip?? Now as I said I won’t bash an establishment for a single poor sitting, I’ve been here multiple times with my friends or my other half and we’ve had unbelievable service and as always the foods impeccable. I just won’t ask for him to wait our table if he happens to be working at said given time

This was our first time at Urban Brewery and it was lovely, great atmosphere and space to have lunch in, with a bonus of the rugby being played (but wasn’t too intrusive).
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and let us have a look around as we were planning an event and thought this place would be ideal. Would recommend it to anyone for food or a casual drink and will definitely return
