    Seated early, good choice, served promptly, quite small portion for price, attentive staff, the music was quite loud and basey for a Tuesday evening, we will be returning.

    Food served almost immediately after the reservation (less than 15 min). Good size portions and well designed on a plate. Music a bittoo loud, could hardly hear your friends at the table. Lovely views on Cork City. Toilets very clean.

    Went to eat for Fathers Day, should have checked available menu beforehand, as it was a brunch, not a lunch menu, thought something different would have been available for the day that was in it. Also no Kids menu, which left little choice for our child. In general though food was good. I did however go for a special lunch on a weekday there were 15 of us and I must say the service and food was excellent, we were allowed sit and relax afterwards too.

    Enjoyed every bite of the 5 courses we had between the 2 of us. Highly recommend the pork belly main in particular. Staff were superb. Friendly, welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. Good selection of drinks, although wine list is a bit on the pricey side. Great atmosphere and lovely decor. Music a couple of decibels too high for our liking. Overall very impressed and will definitely be back again.

    Food is good but portion sizes are small considering the price charged. Once we finished our meal we had planned to enjoy a few drinks however we were told they needed the table back in 5 minutes. While there were at least 5 available tables surrounding us. We were in the restaurant for less than 2 hours. Many customers who book a table in Sophie’s intend on taking in the views it has to offer which we had intended to do. We were not forewarned of the short time we would have the table for when we were seated at our table. We both left feeling very dissatisfied considering the amount we spent on our meal and having being treated like that once they’d received their money we would not recommend to a friend, there are far nicer more accommodating restaurants on offer in Cork city.

    Great experience at Sophie’s restaurant. Plenty of choice on the menu. Some dishes were expensive especially desserts @ €8.50 nonetheless there’s something for everyone’s taste & pocket. We shared an Antipasti board for €17.85. I had the scallops & Arancini with peas. Sides were extra. My husband ordered the Chorizo & Pulled Beef pizza. Although he ate it, he felt it was a bit doughy with the strong cubes of chorizo overpowering what little beef there was. A limited enough wine menu with the cheapest bottle €30. Some booths had views of the city whereas other tables wouldn’t have. There’s an outside heated terrace also. The bar is centrally located and the kitchen area is open which all adds to the ambiance. The waiting staff were exceptional- initially we were seated in a booth facing a wall but they moved us to another section when a booth came available. There were plenty of staff who went about their job in a happy, efficient and effective manner. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable outing at Sophie’s restaurant in the Dean Hotel.

    We had a lovely boozy Saturday brunch. The staff were lovely, food was delicious and the cocktails were great. Only minor complaint was one of our party ordered the Cuban flat bread which arrived 20 mins after everyone else's main dishes due an apparent pizza backlog in the kitchen. Besides that I would happily have given 5 stars!

    I booked brunch for my daughters 16th birthday. A really lovely girl looked after us (red haired girl can't remember her name, sorry). She went out of her way for us. My daughter suffers from anxiety and the quiet time and lovely surroundings made it the perfect location. Food was excellent. Will definately be booking again. Thanks you.
