Tom, the day barman is top shelf, an old school English barman who is a consummate professional. Food is very nicely done albeit a bit pricey. The portions are large and could probably be downsized. Wait staff is attentive and at times are funny if only because they are unable to pronounce some of the menu items. The evening host is attentive, keeps tables moving and guests smiling without making folks feel as if they are being tossed. The crowd is affible. The evening barman is unfortunately the one mess in this otherwise well laid table. He appears and sounds to be an escapee from North Dublin who fancies himself quite the ladies man and who is, simply, rude to his customers to say nothing of the way he incessantly harasses the female waitstaff like a tomcat in need of some attention and who shoves his taste in sport down everyone's throats. I would return only in the day or if and when the management replaces the evening bartender with someone who respects the establishment and its customer base.
