My husband and I dined here while on vacation in Dublin and it was amazing! The views are spectacular, as you can see all over Dublin with the glass windows surrounding it. The food was delicious and we had wonderful service. I highly recommend the Gnocchi and Pan Fried Hake. The clementine creme brûlée was also delicious. It was romantic, but also fun as it was very lively even on a Wednesday night. This is a great place.
Food was excellent, service was great and a good atmosphere
Amazing food service and atmosphere! Making our last night in Dublin extra special! Thank you!
Always like Sophie's, pizzas are particularly nice and even nicer when washed down with a gin cocktail
I had a wonderful meal at Sophie's. The scallops with pork belly courgons
in a tasty pea puree was top notch. The sea trout with clams, oysters, peas, lima beans
in a sea food sauce was exquisitely prepared and absolutely delicious. This is one of the finest seafood meals that I have ever had. The wait staff were extremely helpful, polite and attentive especially Marcella who made me feel very welcomed. Two thumbs way up for Sophie's.
Beautiful Brunch with my Mam for Mother's Day. Food was delicious ans service was excellent. Sophie's in on the 5th we great views of Dublin. We'll defo vw back
Can’t fault the food or service during our meal. Our every need was catered and the staff were lovely. The only grievance we had is that we finished our meal and having a drink at the bar to celebrate my girlfriends 24th birthday , but they would not allow our friends to join us as they were under 25 meaning we then had to leave and go elsewhere to continue the celebrations .
Had been to this restaurant previously and would have to say it has taken a step backward. The host cribbing about the previous customer being 10 mins over the acceptable allotted time was something he should have kept to himself.... Blatently turning his head as we exited after our meal was a big no no.... didn't take it personally as I'd imagine that's his persona..His overall attitude left a lot to be desired and he definitely needs to be taken to task. Food was acceptable.... Burger with fries for her and eggs with smoked salmon for me... can't go wrong with this dish. Overall not a disaster by any means but most certainly didn't meet our expectations compared to our previous visit.
With excellent food in a scenic setting, Sophie’s is the perfect spot for a special occasion in Dublin. Highly recommended!
The atmosphere was a little flat, even though it was a Saturday afternoon and fully booked. Our waitress perpetuated this feeling. The food is just over the reasonable price mark and pushing into expensive, which is a shame as it would be better to have a place that a person could feel they could visit every week for brunch, not just once in a while.
The Heuvos Rancheros are fantastic, but the griddle pan they’re served in is ridiculous. It makes the dish very hard to eat. The kitchen need to reassess this plating situation.
Lastly, but most importantly, nobody thanked us or said goodbye as we were leaving. We passed the front desk, which was manned by who I guessed was the manager. He looked at us briefly and looked down. We stood by this desk for a few minutes as different members of our party went to the loo, and nothing. Not even a head nod acknowledging our existence. This is poor hospitality and made me question any confidence I had in Sophie’s.
On balance we could not recommend Sophie's as there are (in our opinion) better places in a crowded market so to speak.
The food was very, very good in itself but there seemed to be a lack of service staff and that let things down a little. Our main waitress was very good but it took a while for us to get a second drink. We had to order from another waitress and at one stage thought it had been forgotten but it eventually came.
It was a nice experience but slightly underwhelming as we had expected something a little more.
Had a very enjoyable experience at Sophie's on Thursday evening last. The venue is sleek and modern, with a stunning view of Dublin's skyline, affable and helpful staff, and delicious food. The ambiance was quiet yet energetic, and was conducive to great conversation with my date for the evening. All considered, Sophie's provided an excellent dining experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.
I enjoyed a great meal, with excellent food and service. The view from the restaurant is spectacular. Very impressed.
Lovely setting, excellent service, disappointing food
On a city break from London, really good food and great atmosphere will definitely recommend to friends and would definitely come again if I was to visit Dublin again.
A fantastic evening at a fantastic restaurant. I've been a few times and it never disappoints! Great wine and the food is superb! Staff are always lovely and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone!
The whole evening start to finish was lovely! I was pleasantly suprised by the price of the meal over all! Our server was fantastic, She was slammed with tables, running all over the place and was still polite and attentive when serving us! Such a lovely girl (I'm upset I cant remember her name,) The terrace for drinks and chats had a lovely vibe and was so relaxing! 10/10
Came here from the UK for a Birthday Lunch and wasn't disappointed. The view across Dublin really creates a great atmosphere for a special occasion. I left a note on my booking to say it was my girlfriend's birthday. They were sure to wish her a happy Birthday as we arrived, and then surprised us with an ice cream plate with candle! Food portions for lunch were generous and the overall cost was reasonable. We had lunch, a cocktail each and coffee to finish. My burger was a little dry but my girlfriend's chicken was delicious. The decor of the place is great.
Very good overall, food was great, always a nice place for any occasion
Fantastic place. Food was fab and the lady we had wait.on us was so friendly and helpful. She was a credit to your staff.
We had a terrific evening at Sophie's on Monday last. We were meeting with 5 American friends who are on holiday here for a week, and we chose Sophies based on the menu, views, reviews and ability to seat 8 friends together who wanted to chat. The music was not too loud, we could hear each other perfectly, the food was delicious and you very kindly catered for one of the group by marking her birthday even though she wasn't having a dessert. This attention to detail and kindness made our evening. Also we weren't rushed from our table when the 2 hours were up as it was relatively quiet and the cocktails were delicious. Thank you so much to the chefs and staff, we will definitely be back 🤗🤗🤗
Lovely atmosphere with beautiful view, great quality food with quick service woul recommend cocktail ‘tonight we dance’
Really enjoyed the entire experience... comfortable, great food, friendly service and great drinks!
Excellent food and service will be very happy to return.
To celebrate my birthday we went to Sophies and the waitress made an honest mistake of taking our order however her machine died so it wasn't sent to the kitchen. After 45 minutes with no food, the waitress came up and explained. Exactly 70 minutes are being seated we received are eggs on toast and heuvos rancheros. The bill arrived and nothing was deducted which we complained about. We were given 10€ off which we felt was in no way significant after delaying us for the rest of the day. The manager came over and said that was the best he could do and when we said we wouldn't be returning he didn't seem to care in the slightest that he had unhappy customers. The way the management dealt with this situation was under standard and I would not recommend visiting this restaurant due to this level of service. Very unhappy
Gorgeous brunch with gorgeous views. Food absolutely delicious and reasonable.
A little way out from the main Temple Bar area but well worth the walk!
The waitress Nikki was absolutely fantastic !
Booked a meal at Sophie’s for our 1st night in Dublin, a weekend getaway for my girlfriend’s Birthday. I told Sophie’s that this was a special occasion and, oh boy, did they deliver! The provided us with the best table in the house, corner table complete with a breath-taking view of the city and even provide my girlfriend with a free birthday dessert. Often, such requests for special occasions in my experience fall on deaf ears and this is the 1st time I felt real effort had been made to fulfill my request in full! Service and drinks/cocktails were fantastic. The only negative was for €50+ per head, I expected a little more from the food (10z Steak was a little too fatty for the price). Regardless, this was very minor in the grand scheme of things and took very little away from what was a truely magical night.
Lovely food, lovely setting and a great buzz at lunchtime. However, the service left something to be desired. We found it hard to get our server's attention. At one stage we had to get up out of our seats to try and find someone to bring us plates and condiments which we had already asked for. Our server asks if we'd like dessert but forgot to bring us the menus. They eventually came after we asked again. I ordered tea which did not arrive and had to order it again, by which stage it was nearly cold. I've been to Sophie's a few times and I always enjoy the food and atmosphere but they could do with either putting on more staff or upping their game a little with regards to service.
Brilliant view, very good food with good choices, nice cocktails, perfect for any occasion!
Really good food, superfood salad with salmon, great service. Only downside was that I should’ve asked for some bread with the salad as I wasn’t terribly full, but that’s not a bad thing.
Amazing food at a very good price. Good atmosphere and views. Friendly staff.
Lovely staff but the room was a bit cold for my girlfriend.
The few is stunning and worth the wait
The menu is limited and we thought not very tasty but that is subjective
The specialty cocktails were fun and tasty
Limited wine/champagne choices unfortunately
The creme brûlée was awful - one bite and could not try more- did not even resemble what a creme brûlée should taste like
But service was terrific and the view and ambience lovely
Excellent - we had 3 babies in Prams and toddler with us and the staff couldn’t have been nicer. Highly recommend for families who love brunching!
Food is not special and the place is noisy but the view is extraordinary. So it's worth the money for that. But they should really improve on the ambience and on the food. The place is a bit too noisy.
We booked a table for four people at 6pm. We arrived half an hour early and did order before 6 but the waitress was asking us to leave by 7.15pm.
We all had two courses each as well as cocktails so it wasn't like we were hogging the table with a couple of cups of coffee.
The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and better views but the customer service is poor.
Tremendous improvement in the quality of the food! I'll be back!
Great spot for casual brunch. Fabulous views of Dublin. Food was perfect!
I had a very enjoyable time at Sophie's - the atmosphere is great. My sister and I treated our Mom to brunch as it was her birthday. The service was excellent and staff were friendly. I had the avocado with poached eggs, prosciutto and hollandaise - it was yum! The cocktails are also delicious. Thanks for a lovely afternoon!
