Reviews

On a wet, chilly Sunday afternoon, we arrived into Greene's at 6pm to a warm welcome from many staff, not just the friendly waitress who greeted us and showed us to a fab window table. The Service was beyond great, beautiful little treats before and between courses. Great attention to detail, sea salt in the butter, gorgeous bread. The highlight was the dessert. Can't wait to go back. Thank you First Table!

A fabulous evening from start to finish! We enjoyed a drink before going into the restaurant!!! Good variety in choices for all courses!!! Starter we both had the same and thank god cause don’t think there would have been any sharing it was bursting with flavour!!!! Slow cooked pork belly and black pudding porridge and an apple element- presentation of all dishes was superb attention to detail... a lovely selection of fresh, warm bread arrived with mouthwatering salted butter. A complimentary chefs surprise came after the starter and again was an array of flavours and textures and such a delight. I had the game and scallops cooked to perfection served with wilted spinach and smoked sausage and seaweed element... was mouthwatering!!!! My husband had the duo of beef, medium rare fillet and a slow cooked shoulder of beef that was rich in flavour and so tender... we shared a trio chocolate mousse which was heavenly!!!! Our waiter George, was witty and helpful throughout the evening... will def be returning... such god quality food, one of the nicest meals that we have had in a long time....

We enjoyed a beautiful six course taster menu at Greenes on Sunday evening. Looking out at the wonderful waterfall, each course was carefully described by our waiter and we enjoyed them all. Especially the shoulder of lamb which was so tender and the blue goat's cheese. A real treat for the senses.

We had a lovely time Greene's restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had each course explained to us. The chef sent out little tasters complementary to us, which was a lovely touch.

We decided to go to Greenes for a date night dinner and we were very happy with the overall experience. We got very nice table inside, in front of the window with view on the small waterfall outside, that is definitely quite unique in the city centre.
The staff was super attentive and quick, also offering to explain anything that might be unclear in the menu. We decided to order starter, main and dessert from the "a la carte" menu and we were pleasantly surprised when we noticed that other than the usual bread and butter (which was also very good in this case) a small "amuse bouche" and palate cleanser were offered as part of the meal. Presentation was very impressive for each course and my favourite part of the meal was dessert, I loved the chocolate cremeux torte.
Prices are a bit on the high side, but it was somewhat expected considering the quality, attention to detail and research put into these dishes.

Can't fault anything. Greene's , as always, is up there with the best restaurants in Cork. Food and service are always second to none. The staff always make you feel special and the complimentary bites from the Chef are the cherry on top. 5 stars.

We three ladies were heading to the Everyman theatre and thought it was a great opportunity to avail of First tables offer at Greene's restaurant, a restaurant I used to frequent on a regular basis years ago. One of my friends had never eaten there so was so looking forward to it. Two of the ladies enjoyed different selections of red wine. Time did not permit us having the 10 course tasting menu but we all agreed that we'd come back another time to try it. We ordered our main courses and while waiting got a lovely selection of breads. We also received an individual selection of tiny samples from the tasting menu compliments of the house which added to our joy. All of us were well impressed with our 3 different main courses which were small but delicious and the dish washer did not have much work to do. We also ordered some sides which were lovely but small in portion size as well.
The serving staff were very attentive without being intrusive, in particular George. We also tried one of the desserts which was divine. All dishes were beautifully presented. We loved our time, which was limited due to theatre booking and we'll be back.

In a beautiful setting with a view and sounds of the waterfall outside, Greenes' provided a wonderful high quality meal, with attentive service by very helpful staff . The quality of the food was exquisite, with attention paid to both flavour and presentation, that was only added to by the atmospheric venue. Would highly recommend

We have dined previously in Greenes and know how good it is. We were therefore thrilled to see it on the First Table list of venues. The menu available to us was the a la Carte one, great choices, the staff were as usual very knowledgeable and attentive, all our food was charged at half price, only thing we paid full price for was wine and coffee. Really enjoyed the evening.

Excellent service, great ambiance, comfortable seating. Food was delicious but small portions (which is expected in a fine dining establishment). We will be back.
