The Irish Embassy serves patrons with an authentic pub experience with each and every experience. Order up the fish and chips, and you will feel as if you are right in the middle of Dublin. Couple that with a Guinness and the transformation is complete at the Irish Embassy. This is a great place to meet after work for a few drinks. In addition to the traditional Irish drinks readily available, the full bar will whip up your favorite cocktail on demand. The famous bangers and mash can be had here as well, so whatever your taste for food might be, you will find plenty of options at Irish Embassy.

    Irish stew was largely potatoes. Not sure if it was supposed to be like that.

    I frequent The Irish Embassy and have been fortunate to have had many a great occasion at this establishment. Arguably, it is my favourite hang-out in the city, be it for after work drinks with colleagues, a quiet dinner for one, or perhaps dinner with friends. Love the layout of the place. Solid menu, good beer choices and very pleasant staff and the place usually always has great energy. Spinach dip, curry chips, and the lamb stew and you are good to go. Love the Chicken Curry, too.

    I would recommend this place yes. However, being an Irish pub one would expect Irish music for the band. They had two guys with guitars playing 70s pop music, way out of tune, vocals too low guitars too high. took away from the ambiance so much my wife and I left after dinner. We were planning on staying for the evening.

    I was actually disappointed upon walking in, I don’t think the tables and chairs or the dinner wear have been updated in a few decades. Service was okay. The food.... not sure if it was our selection but both of us had ordered the Irish Lamb stew and shared a poutine. Poutine wasn’t great but edible, the lamb stew was gross and the presentation completely unappetizing. The lamb was very tough which is odd in a stew. This seems to be a popular venue and was quite busy .... I don’t understand why unless people show up to drink and socialize and it’s not about the food. Needless to say, I wouldn’t return or recommend this venue.

    Wonderful space. Waitstaff not great. Place was almost empty, but it took 15 minutes to get my beer, which I could see on the bar getting warm. Ordered fish and chips, which were good, but I noticed that my plate had one piece of fish, but the people next to me all had 2. Things happen, but if you are waiting tables, and you know that an entree is incomplete, you tell the kitchen staff. It felt strange. My son loved his bangers and mash, though. Still, the space is lovely with high ceilings and plenty of Irish touches.
