    Superb meal. Zhanna had the sole and I had the t-bone steak. Both dishes were mouth-watering. This is the 1st time we've dined at Shanahan's but we will definitely be back. Exceptional restaurant and not overpriced. Staff were exemplary especially at reception when we arrived.

    Excellent staff and service upon entering the restaurant. We were 30 minutes early but they had a lovely lounge where we could wait and order drinks while awaiting our table. Food was great and highly recommend for those who love their steaks. Certainly on the pricier end of dining out but makes an excellent choice for the special occasion (which we were there for).

    Food and Service were fantastic. Walked my mom and I up about 30 stairs to the second level. Then 8 more for my mom to use the ladies room. 8 more steps down and my moms legs gave out and she fell. I believe the Matre D could have sent some other more youthful guests up the stairs. .Thank god she just fell on her knee, matre D was unapologetic, no visit from management Food and service were great. But some common sense goes a long way. I guess its my fault for not telling her she may not fare well on all those stairs.

    Lovely dining experience. Met Sean Shanahan himself and gave us a warm welcome. Massive portions. Unfortunately we were not allowed into their bar downstairs as they were on last orders at 11:30pm. Bar manager not very accomodating at all. Pity they cannot prioritise paying guests. Put a little dampner to the end of our night.

    Dublin should be proud of having a steak restaurant of this level. As good as the best in Buenos Aires, New York or Basque country. Pity the US wine selection isn’t wider. It used to offer a good range Will always return whenever in Dublin
