TRIBE Urban Gastronomy - One Visit

This restaurant has so much going on, location, interior, style, live music, food, the wine list that it should just work.


But it doesn't, unfortunately, the service lets it down.


With so much going on you need to be on form, so while the back of house delivers on the food, the front of house fails. The food was incredible.


Walking inside you'll feel like your in a restaurant in the Las Vegas strip (without the level of service), edgy decor and design, and the live music was an unexpected bonus.


We were celebrating a birthday, so wanted this restaurant to deliver on its promise and recommendations from locals, but it failed.


The floor team didn't know their champagnes or wines and once the restaurant became busy the servers simply got swamped and service levels dropped, it took well over 20 minutes to deliver the wine and there was ample staff rostered.


Just to put this into perspective we paid over €350 for dinner, we are well into fine dining service levels.


Excuse the colour on the photographs it was the lighting inside.
