Fabulous Decor and Lovely Food Visited on a Sunday evening, it was not overly busy and we were able to get a table without a booking. Service was excellent as was the decor and atmosphere. The food was really good and beautifully presented but was quite expensive.
A Tale of Two VERY DIFFERENT Experiences Under one Roof - This Review is for The Chairman's Room The Clermont is two VERY different offerings under the same roof: the Clermont downstairs and The Chairman's Room upstairs. They are so different that they warrant two separate reviews. Downstairs is daylight robbery and mediocre at best. For what is on offer, I'd rate McDonalds above it! Upstairs however is a totally different story and that is what this review is about.
Over the last 30 years I have been lucky enough to eat in some amazing restaurants across the world and I have to say my experience in The Chairman's Room is nearly up there with any of them. In fact, with just a little extra push, it would be right there. The food (oh the food!!!), the staff, the decor, everything about it screams class, quality and most importantly a desire to achieve excellence and perfection. Each element compliments the other and they are so close to nailing it! Given time, I think they will.
That's pretty much all I have to say about it, other than if you get a chance to visit, do. It's not going to be easy on the pocket, and nor should it be. Quality costs money and my experience here was that every cent is money well spent. I look forward to going back myself :-)!
Family lunch We had such a lovely lunch at The Clermont while on a family day out in Blackrock . The outside space was excellent as so was the staff. Food was lovely and such great value. We will definitely be back. Grear selection of gluten free.
