Sophie's @ The Dean Dublin Ratings and Reviews
For us it was too loud and too many people standing around the tables drinking while you're trying to eat,we had to try catch a waiter as they were all so busy and we had to keep asking for water as they were not allowed to leave the jug on the table,ridiculous and there was no ice in the jug when it was 25 degrees outside..just wasn't a comfortable or relaxing dining experience and the music in the toilets was so loud I thought I'd stepped into a club...wasn't for me but perhaps being 43 I'm too old for this restaurant
Servers were very friendly, but service was terrible and the food was unremarkable. I'd recommend Sophie's for the bar scene and wood-fired pizza. Save your money (and do your palate a favor!) for a better managed restaurant in Dublin.
We celebrated our anniversary and also let the staff know about it when we placed the reservation. Therefore they gave us the best possible table with a wonderful view, received us with 2 glasses of champagne :)
As a final surprise, we received at the end a nice desert on the house, where they wrote on the plate "Happy Anniversary" with chocolate.
Excellent food and service, will surely come back.
I really loved this place. This was our final night in Ireland (before returning to NYC) and I wanted someplace memorable. They are on the top of The Dean Hotel and have a great skyline view of Dublin. The food, drinks and service were outstanding (the margaritas and pizzas were exceptionally good). The place has a hip vibe and plays lounge music. Everyone in my party of 5 (with ages ranging from 40 to 80) really loved it.
Wanted to share a pizza with my fiancee so asked for half meat and a half without, been told we cannot do that. I think its a pretty simple request... The avocado brunch was a small spread on the sourdough expected a bit more portion wise. Overall was a good experience but food wise I expected a bit more.
Good service, good food. The price is pretty top end for what you get, but that's to be expected. The cocktails aren't particularly refined, they're not a treat as you might expect.
Lesson learned: brought my wife here fo dinner as a treat as she had wanted to try it for ages. Don't go on a date here on a Saturday unless you want to spend it listening to a group of a dozen girls shouting and singing at the next table. It's probably nicer on a week day or earlier in the day, but in the evening this place is full of south Dublin's finest dolled up for everyone to admire, it's not a nice atmosphere for a restaurant.
Having read somewhat mixed recent reviews before booking I was optimistic but also hoping that we won't catch Sophie's at their bad day. Luckily our experience was fantastic. I will not mention decor or view too much because if you're reading this you probably know by now what to expect - this place is famous for both. The service was attentive and prompt with a hint of pretense but not too much to spoil the evening. Our group of 6 had bunch of cocktails, beers, starters and main courses. All the cocktails were awesome - well presented, strong and tasty. Definitely worth the price of €11+. The food was excellent too. We had ceviche, risotto, pizzas, fish and steak. Everything looked good and tasted even better. Especially the sirloin steak which was tender and well cooked. But the absolute star were the parmesan fries. I would go back just for those :) My only suggestion would be to improve vegetarian choices a little bit. But all in all we very much enjoyed our dinner and, being blessed with sunny weather, seeing Dublin from up top covered in sunset was a beautiful dessert.
Service was spectacular! We sat at the bar and had drinks and dinner. Gitman was our bartender/server. He made my daughter and I feel like VIP's. Would definitely come back on a return trip to Dublin! Will be referring all our American friends!
Lovely restaurant and food was good but Eur103 for 2 for early dinner was terribly expensive.
Dinner included 2 x starters, 2 x main course, 1 desert, 1 glass of wine, 1 coffee. Would have to think hard about going to this restaurant again and warn everyone of how expensive it is.
The place we were seated was heavily crowded with people drinking, we were the only two having food, the waitress informed us when seating us that the people beside us who were 3 deep at high top table that they would be gone shortly, we had a two course meal and a drink we left before they did.
Friendly great cocktails and service quite pricey but the food was very nice if your a big eater then this restaurant is not for you as servings are very small. The venue reminded me of the guiness factory great night clubs and bars close by other then temple bar
Sunday Brunch - it has been the second already because I cannot get enough from the view over Dublin. Very cool and modern place and the food is tasty, too :) I once would like to go there in the evening to - must be nice to sit around the bar up there, too.
I treated my mum and sister to brunch ,this is my second time having brunch here ,they loved It .Food was very well presented and tasted amazing .My only feedback would be that my sister is pregnant and had asked for her egg to be well done and only one egg was.a minor thing though .Have already recommend it to many of my friends ,will definitely be back 😀
This was our first time to Dublin and we couldn't be happier with our choice to eat at Sophie's. We went solely off of online recommendations and it did not disappoint. We had a nice booth by the window overlooking Dublin. The food and service were both excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Dublin looking for great food with a view.
We went to Sophie's prior to a show in the Bord Gais theatre and it was superb, its deserves more than 5 stars, delicious food (OMG the succulent taste), the perfect ambience, the view - Dublin lit up at night, outstanding service (booked through open table and staff telephones to confirm), overall divine...honestly the tastiest food I have ever eaten, the steak just fell apart, perfectly cooked and so juicy, the pizza was the best pizza I have ever tasted!!!!scrumptious...and not to forget the cocktails, one word UNREAL!!!!!! If you haven't visited, it is a MUST!!!!! 💯%
Excellent as always
Only complaint was for a birthday and we had a balloon and it was taken off the table for the brunch and given back to us at the end think it's a bit extreme it doesn't effect anyone else's dining experience and if celebrating a birthday or special occasion is an special addition to the occasion really don't think it's necessary to upset anyone marking there special occasion with something as trivial as a balloon
Would definitely make me choose anothe venue for future special occasions as was very petty and unnecessary I understand people going over board with decorations and table settings but one balloon want going to affect anyone's dining however upset the party as they had gone to special effort to get the balloons and bring them
