You couldn't fault it. The best pizza we've both ever had, and we've had a lot! Cocktails were fab and the staff were absolutely lovely! Not to mention the decor and view!!

We were there for brunch on saturday. Great food and fantastic atmosphere. I loved the french toast. Very good service and reasonable value (although drinks are a little pricey). Worth a visit just for the view.

Nice view and good service. Reasonable value if you order pizza. Had to wait several days for a reservation and could only get a booking for 18h dinner. So the restaurant was empty during most of our dinner.

I booked a table to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were given the booth in the corner of the restaurant which had fabulous views and meant we could chat at ease without feeling we were on top of other diners. The ambience in the restaurant was lovely, very chilled out and cool. The girls and guy that served us were really friendly and helpful, and our food came really quickly. The food itself was delicious, really fresh ingredients and really lovely taste combinations, as well as decent portions. When we ordered dessert, my husband's came on a plate with "happy birthday" written in chocolate, complete with candle. It was a lovely touch! I would highly recommend Sophie's and we will be back!

We went to the Sophie's on a Wednesday after work for dinner. The place was full, and the view was lovely from the top of the Dean's hotel. The food was very tasty, and the service was quite good. The only thing that was not perfect, was the fact that it was too noisy from being so busy, so it was not so good for a relaxing night. I would recommend it for groups.

Food would have been lovely yet the mains took over half an hour to come (baring in mind it was 2 pizzas). Seating very close together, and compact. However terrace and drinks were lovely. Would recommend terrace but not restaurant.

No real dairy or egg free options for lunch/breakfast and the staff and kitchen were very inflexible when tying to get around this. I had to order from a limited selection of sides and when I asked for something that was on the menu but not specifically listed as a side I was told it couldn't be done. There were several things on the menu that the kitchen had run out of which we were only told about when ordering. Overall I wouldn't be rushing back or recommending.

We had a lovely meal in Sophie's on Friday night. We have been to Sophie's before and once again the food was great. However, the service was very disappointing this time. We were offered water when we ordered our food, our glasses were never refilled throughout the meal though. We both ordered pizzas and a side of chips to share, the chips never arrived. Our main course was cleared, but we were not offered a dessert menu. I eventually got a waitress' attention and was able to get the menus. Our desserts arrived very promptly, however, our coffees did not arrive. And once again I had to ask for the coffees. Our food was fabulous, but the service was very poor.

If I am coming to Dublin again I will absolutely come back for another nice evening and I will for sure recommend this restaurant to my friends in Sweden.

Brunch with the girls. The first thing you note on arriving at Sophies is the fabulous panoramic making the space lovely and bright and open for brunch. I believe it's equally impressive in the evening. The brunch menu had something for everyone, to include the usual eggs orientated fare with the additional of the huevas rancheros, burgers, pizzas. Really very tasty. The wine list seemed to have a base price of €30 which is a little pricey for what it was. Very impressive and look forward to returning

What a treat! We booked sophies for breakfast as it was our last day out as a twosome before our first baby arrives. They gave us a beautiful corner booth with stunning views. The service was impeccable and the lovely waitress helped my husband make up his mind on what to order. Neither meal failed to impress us. They gave us a gorgeous dessert plate to congratulate us on the pregnancy and to wish us look in the coming weeks. A real treat.
