I loved the meal and the service was great. I reserved it for my Birthday and I thought they would do something nice for my birthday but I didn't even get a Happy Birthday. I did like how my table was ready and the food came out extremly quick.

Mike was an excellent server. He handled our party very efficiently and was polite with good conversation. All of our brunch meals and drinks were fantastic. We all especially loved the mini muffins that were served before our meals arrived. This is a great spot for small groups.

Good staple restaurant of "Historic Dublin". Having said that, I believe this restaurant will struggle to survive when newer restaurants open along the river. The pricing is consistent with high end restaurants but the food presentation and prep felll a bit short of my expectations. The service was also a bit stretched and waiter could not keep up with their tables. In summary, still a nice restaurant for dates/ get togethers but with the increasing competition in the Dublin restaurant market, I think they may be in trouble.

Pros:
Atmosphere
Focaccia bread
Scallops
Sides
Awesome service. Melissa was very friendly and on-the-ball.
Wedge salad
Cocktails very good old fashioned
Wine - try the cab blend

Cons:
Steak (ordered medium rare; dry, small, charred on outside)
House salad - too much garlic

Tip: if you need cash for valet or otherwise, there is an ATM very close to the valet stand.

Wonderful dining experience from start to finish — friendly hostess, manager, and server; excellent wine (even bought a bottle to take home!); outstanding meal and special birthday dessert for my husband! Steaks were cooked to perfection and the scallops were delicious!! We have dined at Tucci’s a few times and have always been impressed!

We felt for this experience the restaurant was overpriced for the food quality and service provided. Sides were not included with the entree and pricey for the ingredients included. Arugula salad was wilted and drenched in dressing. It was also over chilled, an indicator that it had been pre-prepared and sitting in refrigeration, not prepared from scratch. We each ordered a side. The truffle fries were served cold initially. For both the salad and fries we had to track down a server to have the issue addressed. Wait staff was not frequently attentive.

Everything was great. Started with the crab cake appetizer, and enjoyed the clam chowder before entrees. Everyone in our group had a filet, and all were cooked wonderfully. Dana was our server and took excellent care of us throughout the night.

We eat out frequently. We have not been to Tucci's probably over 10 years. I think they had a better menu then than now. Food was disappointing. There were four of us. The salads were good (although a bit pricey-- $8. I eat much better salad at Refectory or Lindey's for the same price or less. Of course you cannot put Tucci's and the other two restaurants I mentioned in the same category!). My wife ordered Crab cakes and a small order of baby Bella mushrooms. Normally crab cake we eat at other restaurants come pan seared. This was deep fried. Too greasy and heavy. Mushrooms came with a strange and strong spice. Neither one of us liked it. I ordered the only pasta dish that I thought would be not too heavy. I opted to add chicken to it. Pasta came in a clear broth liquidly sauce. Sliced chicken pieces added to it did not have any taste. To make my dish edible and enjoyable, I requested some marinara sauce and some parmesan cheese. With these additions, I made my dish OK. In summary, we wasted a good amount of money on food we did not like. If you have a refined taste for food, Tucci's is not the place I would recommend.
Service was excellent. Our waiter did everything she can to make our evening enjoyable.

I especially love Tucci's in the summer. Great outdoor area and atmosphere. I was pleased on this visit to have a booth in the back area where it was a little quieter. I don't think I would like a booth near the door in the winter. I expect it could be pretty chilly.
