I have no negative comments about The Pearl in Dublin and I don’t know all of the best words to use for this restaurant but all of them apply!! The atmosphere is perfect, the food is absolutely delicious and the service is exceptional, along with the entire staff. Wesley is the epitome of an exceptional server; kind, informative, very personable and pleasant! It is well worth the money to be able to experience such an awesome evening. This is my “five-star” restaurant.

My boyfriend and I went to Lincoln Social to celebrate my birthday and had such an amazing time. The views of the city were beautiful, the food and drinks were delicious, and the service was fantastic. I would highly recommend coming here any day of the week, it was the best experience we’ve ever had dining out.

About the restaurant
Brass Eye is the perfect place to unwind and be inspired by one of our founding fathers who knew how to have fun and not be too serious. Benny Frank’s Drinker’s Dictionary will make you laugh and want to have one more. Our dynamic rooftop bar is surrounded by oversized fireplaces, cozy seating with panoramic views of the city – and is the perfect place to assemble with friends for well-crafted spirits and honest food that’s perfect for sharing and good times.

The food was amazing! Great quality and great prices. Only reason why I didn’t give 5 stars is because our waiter took a long time in between checking on us. We waited for the bill, boxes & a bag for a while. Great view of downtown Columbus as well.

Everyone in my dinner party said they would certainly be back. Thank you so much to the staff and to our waitress for making my 25th birthday a day to remember.

The waiter had a wonderful personality. But he was quiet sow. Other than that, the food was EXCELLENT. The tortellini soup was so yummy, I took some to go. And the chicken salad was delicious. Very refreshing. The chicken for both was a little dry and I didn’t like the vanilla old fashioned. But still one of my favorite places!
