This restaurant is in a beautiful old town home in a great location. It's probably a great place to impress your corporate clients or social climbing acquaintances. The food is good but I've had much better for much less. Even if price were no object,...More

We had a dinner here with group of 4 people. Everybody enjoyed their steak. The service was excellent. They need to work on their starters and sides.

This place knows how to do a good steak and put on a fantastic feast. My Eyes are still watering from the price but luckily I didn't have to pay from my group. Dress up and go ready to eat(big portions) and you will enjoy.

Went for the pre theatre menu. Food was fabulous and lovely atmosphere. We weren't rushed and were given plenty of time between courses.

What really stood out at Shanahans was the service. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and could not do enough. When I told the lady I made the reservation with that we were celebrating exam results, she arranged for a complimentary petit fours plate,...More

There is no dress code but I did wear a blazer and khakis. Didn't want to look like a bum. I strongly recommend the Saddle Room instead, better food and way less expensive.

American Style Steakhouse and Seafood Restaurant featuring Certified Irish Angus beef and the freshest seafood and produce from Ireland's local bounty.

Shanahan's ethos is simple and sophisticated. Your experience begins upon arrival. Enjoy an aperitif in the Oval Office bar. Take a moment to inspect the impressive collection of memorabilia adorning the walls. Each item commemorates the U.S. Presidents with an Irish connection or ancestry. Marvel at the bar's centrepiece, JFK's rocking chair from Air Force One.

Dining in Shanahan's is a delight. The elegance of the food and service, is maintained in perfect harmony with the warmth, which personifies the Shanahan's team.
