  • 3 star ratingDisappointing Restaurant I made a reservation for last Saturday. It was our 6th engagement anniversary ( and Valentine`s weekend). We arrived on time and was seated between a birthday party table and another table of two near the door on the way to the bathrooms.The restaurant was half empty so I politely asked if we could get another table, but I got just a brief cold answer that all the tables are booked. So we took a table, but I felt very uncomfortable so I went to ask the same lady ( tall, short hair, glasses ) if we could eat in the bar. The answer was no as meal is served in the bar till 4.00pm and it was 4.30pm...Fair enough. Well, she didn`t make any effort to make us feel welcomed. I was hungry and didn`t want to spoil our date with my husband ( these days it`s so special having a date just us as we have two small children ), so we stayed. I ordered a steak and my husband a fish. Steak was delicious, but the vegetables raw and peppercorn sauce very watery. We were asked how was everything when paying our bill. I mentioned the above and got a reply it will be passed to the kitchen. Our experience definitely wasn`t value for money. Will not be in a rush to go back. Not to mention when we were leaving most of the tables which were empty when we arrived were still empty...

    5 star ratingThe new Clermont Restaurant We recently tried out the New Clermont Restaurant, with our friends. We had a drink in the bar while we waited for our table. The young guy that served us our drinks was so welcoming and friendly. We were shown to our table in the restaurant, and the girl went through the menu in detail explaining everything, very helpful. Our meal was beautiful from starters, main course and deserts. The decor throughout is beautiful. Overall a very good experience, looking forward to our next night out in The Clermont.

    2 star ratingIf you like to just eat beef, this is the place for you... I have visited The Clermont on a number of occasions, always to give it one more chance. I think they have had it now. The decor of this restaurant is absolutely stunning and contrary to other reviews, we found the staff, to be both friendly and attentive. But, we went to The Clermont, to eat. If you like beef, you should definitely go there. My husband eats beef very rarely and I am a vegetarian, so we found the menu very limited. Yes, there was Fish and Chips on the menu and some chicken but if he wanted fish and chips, he would go to Mullins a few doors away. I had the Vegetarian Ragù which was very average to say the least. I also had a side of chunky chips that I had to send back as they were not cooked properly. I was really surprised that the chef did not notice that white slices of semi cooked potatoes were being served. When we were there, we also had a look at The Chairmans menu. This is also predominantly beef based, so we will not be going there. As a vegetarian, I realise that unless it is a specialist vegetarian restaurant, the restaurant will not be just catering for me. I do believe, however, with the rise of flexitarianism, restaurants need to be offering more non meat dishes. A choice between (a poor) vegetarian ragù and gnocchi just does not cut it. But, of course, if you fancy a steak - go for it.

  • 3 star ratingAverage restaurant Myself and my wife popped in for a quick lunch. We had a chowder and a pulled pork sandwich, both of which were fine. It was an average meal. The bill annoyed me as a 10% service charge was added. I always add something as a tip and when I saw the bill, I was paying by card and asked the waitress to round the bill up by an amount which was just over 10%, I then saw that the 10% charge was included and to be fair the waitress asked did I want to leave my tip off, I didn't, so I ended up paying over 20%. This habit really bugs me.

    2 star ratingAll style but poor menu and food Decided to try the new Clermont recently and having waited to allow teething problems to fade.
    The premises are attractive and the staff polite but the menu is very limited for all courses. Our mains had a couple of issues, with request for no dressing/sauce ignored and steak well below the well done requested. The person who ordered steak also said it was tough and stringy - it didn't even look like a striploin cut. Pork belly was cold. No veg seems to be standard unless ordered as a side and even then the char roasted broccoli was laced with chilli which we were not warned about - nobody ate it. The accompanying chips totalled 8 chips!
    Overpriced for sure when you see what little you get - particularly as a main course.
    If you want cocktails and a pizza then head for the Clermont but if you want a decent selection on a menu and tasty food, there are many more options in Blackrock and Dundalk.

    1 star ratingFood was inedible The food is overpriced. No Smirnoff ice. Tiny portions. The beef sandwich I got was freezing I had to send it back so my partner ate his ribs ( 3 bites and it was gone it was that small ) while I was there with just chips and mayo. No garlic dip?? The food came back again but it was disgusting. This time round they had put the tiniest amount of crispy onions on it that wasn’t on the first one that was supposed to be on it it was almost like an insult. The staff are lovely I feel sorry for them I don’t think the table beside us were happy either. The nice lady host didn’t charge for the wine as a sorry what else could she do. I read the reviews before going but I still wanted to give it a chance and was excited however I could never return. They don’t seem to want to improve judging by the other reviews. I left starving after paying 35 Euro so we went to rocksalt cafe and thankfully they saved the day.
