The food (venison and crispy pork belly mains) was delicious and, very reasonable. The sides were particularly good, especially the garlic potatoes!

I went here with 2 work colleagues, service was excellent, we all enjoyed our 3 courses. I would recommend ordering a few sides. It's a lovely airy restaurant, it has a lovely ambience.

Second time using First Table we booked a table in Cleaver East for Thursday 1st November and had a very pleasant meal.

There were three of us dining. The starter of BBQ Suckling Pig Belly was delicious as was the Seared Scallops. The soup Baked Potato with Chorizo was equally as tasty.

For mains we had Crispy Belly of Pork, Roast Rump of Wicklow Lamb and Venison. All of the dishes were extremely tasty; however the pork was the overall winner of the night. It was a wonderful tender piece of pork with an incredibly crispy skin.

All the dishes were very well presented and cooked to perfection. The 3 sides for €10 was great value.

To finish we shared an Apple Crumble. While the apple crumble was very moreish, I felt that the ice cream accompanying it was not of the high quality I expected.

The wine waiter stood out as very friendly and helpful.

I will return to Cleaver East, just to have the wonderful pork and I also look forward to trying the Confit of Duck and Barley Risotto Ball starter.

Dined here with 2 friends and we were each blown away by the food. From the bread & dips right through to the mains everything was amazing.
More vegetarian options would be a good addition to a great menu!

The food was absolutely wonderful, but the service wasn't which is a shame for a really good kitchen and restaurant wasn't that busy for the timing service. Although even with this fact is worth to visit the place.

Had a wonderful time last night at Cleaver East. Staff were so helpful and knowledgeable, and the food was absolutely stunning. I had the duck risotto ball and the rib eye steak, both were fantastic! The 3 sides for €10 is great value. We really felt like we had been spoiled, will definitely be returning.

First time using first table and loved it. Booked a table in Clever East for a Tuesday treat and the food was delicious, the staff were also so friendly and efficient.
The vegetarian main of polenta cakes was one of the best veggie dishes I’ve had before would highly recommend it - even to devoted meat eaters. Will definitely be back.

Excellent experience! Everything went very smoothly. First Table accepted without any problems. The decor is amazing as was the general atmosphere of the place. The staff were very attentive, our water glasses were never empty. The food was delicious and the service was very prompt. I would most definitely come back here again and will tell all my friends about it. Couldn't fault a single thing. Good job guys!

The selection on the menu was exciting but it was hard to overlook the steak given the First Table discount. All the sides were delicious. And the three desserts we tried were full of flavour. The staff were also very helpful, particularly with our additional requests to accommodate a baby in our party.
Would definitely recommend.
