The Chairman's Room - Wow! Probably the best Steak in Ireland! A group of us decided to try the Chairman's room at the Clermont in Blackrock. All i can say is wow!. I've honestly never had beef like it. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was fun (if a bit too much!) and the host helped us pick an amazing wine. We had the Fillet's and the Mowhawk's. Amazed to see something like this outside Dublin or Belfast the decor is 5 star. Well done Clermont.
Overall we had a pleasant Overall we had a pleasant experience. Decor and ambience was superb. A couple of things to note though, the overall wait for the starters and main was far too long, we didn’t get finished our mains until after 10:30pm. Luckily we were having cocktails so they were enjoyed while we waited. Mains were also on the colder side but very tasty all the same. At the end of the night we asked if it would be possible to get an Irish coffee and didn’t receive a great response, the waiter basically looked at us like we were total idiots, said she’d ask but it’s highly unlikely and threw her eyes to heaven as she walked away. A simple “I don’t think so but let me double check” and a smile would have been nice and wouldn’t have left a sour taste for us.
The new Clermont Restaurant We recently tried out the New Clermont Restaurant, with our friends. We had a drink in the bar while we waited for our table. The young guy that served us our drinks was so welcoming and friendly. We were shown to our table in the restaurant, and the girl went through the menu in detail explaining everything, very helpful. Our meal was beautiful from starters, main course and deserts. The decor throughout is beautiful. Overall a very good experience, looking forward to our next night out in The Clermont.
