Dublin >Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse
Could of been better. The wait staff was alright at best.The waitress was overly snobby for someone who stepped on my husband's foot twice(Which by the way, was the foot he had torn ligaments from December, and didn't wear his boot since we were at a supposedly nice restaurant) and he waited 10 minutes for a refill.
Definitely glad I came during restaurant week.. I would not have paid full price.. For a expensive place, I guess you would expect the best. Instead it was just alright, and compared to a meal on a cruise, but at least on a cruise the wait staff is very personable.
Highlight was the Filet Mignon which was very tender but under-seasoned. I was not impressed with the half wedge salad with it's stale bacon or their overwhelmingly garlic potatoes. Their chocolate walnut cake was okay, a little dry but no hint of walnut, should of just been called chocolate cake.
You would think that they would of stepped up their game on their specials when there is a higher likelihood of new customers during restaurant week. Will not be back for it is overly priced meal for the quality of the food.
Bus Tour. A bus tour group was seated next to us as we dined on our $30+ average steaks. This is a quiet romantic restaurant in a well to do suburb. The bus tour group proceeded to stand one by one and loudly introduce each other, in the center of a quiet dining room, surrounded by couples trying to have quiet meals. When I spend a total of over $150 for dinner, I don't expect this sort of enviornment. No help from the mangement. Regardng the food, the steak is tasteless and the wine below average unless you splurge on a $75 bottle the mark up is the highest I have ever seen. Average to below average food, over priced and rude staff.
