Sophie's @ The Dean Dublin
Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.
Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.
Head out to our Rooftop Terrace, where we have sun loungers when it’s hot, blankets and heaters when it’s not.
Really slow service, waiting staff quite rude and not very attentive. Tried to order an extra meal for the table to share and told we wouldn't need it. Disappointing as the view and food itself was great.
Shame we were ignored so much

The scenery is lovely and it's a very nice place to meet your friends but the food was not good. I had a burger and chips as did my two friends. It was mediocre. Nicer in a fast food chain. The desert was the chocolate delice and it was overpriced.
Hi Kelzeey, sorry you were disappointed with your experience we really hope that we might get to see you again some day & show what we are really about here at Sophie's. Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, The Sophie's Team
It was gorgeous totally totally recommend. Food lovely staff friendly
Great night. Excellent service and food. We each had a blast!
Great place had a good time lovely food , brilliant service
Great location and ambiance. Fantastic view and the food was very good. I wish the menu had more options.
Overall experience was good - at times things felt a little rushed - even in such a small thing as water being refilled. Waitress just arrives quickly and water flys in to the glass. It was fine but could be done a little better!
The food and atmosphere was great. The service from 2 waitresses not so much, they were so rude. Unfortunately this experience tainted the evening. Before leaving I spoke with the manager, and briefly explained. He was so apologetic. Hopefully this is an isolated incident.

Lovely food, enjoyable night. Would recommend, good service
Food was ok. Overpriced for what you got. Service was excellent.
The woman that was serving me was so kind was so helpful always had a smile on her face would definitely recommend it's to anyone had a lovely meal and night
We loved here, the food was delicious the atmosphere was really pleasant, with great spacing between tables. We had two waitresses during the night and they were both so lovely. The second lady was great craic and full of personality. We are looking forward to having another lovely evening there soon.
Lovely food - fantastic view!! Can’t wait to go back!!
Love going to Sophie's. It was my 3rd visit & the food was really nice. Look forward to my next visit.

Amazing food and place, a little bit expensive but it’s worth
Really enjoyed it. We have an amazing meal and the setting was great, would definitely return.
Hi Diana, thank you so much for the great review, really happy you enjoyed it. See you again soon... The Sophie's Team
Sophies is a great spot! Not my First time visiting. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because the service was a little less that normal. Definitely recommend for brunch! Great food, great atmosphere!
Hi there, thank you so much for visiting & for taking the time to leave a nice review! Hope to see you again soon... The Sophie's Team
We had a wonderful time and our waitress was very good! The restaurant is beautiful and atmosphere perfect, they even did a “birthday ice cream plate” BUT do not book the 9.30 sitting... we were very rushed and had to eat quickly, no break between courses because they have to turn it around for the nightclub by 10.30. I just wish that we had booked an earlier table as it is expensive and we felt very rushed.
Great local restaurant with beautiful views of Dublin.
Best diner with some good friends!
Thanks for the nice review! The Sophie’s Team
Service was terrible, staff were very rude! Would not recommend to anyone.
Nice restaurant although we found the food a bit bland. Service was great and the food came out really quickly. We only had our table for 2 hours (which we were informed about the day before our reservation) which I find is a bit short.
Everything was perfect quick service, friendly staff and top quality food and drink!
Food was excellent. Quiet as 10am on a Wednesday morning. Service was friendly and helpful. Nice views. Classy.
Perfect evening, attentive staff, beautiful food, great service, 5 stars.
Very loud, staff are great and always wondering how your meal is however they are very intimidating and due to the loud noise level you can’t really get that one on one chat you need to tell them how your food really is. My partner had a steak and it was perfect and I had a pizza, when picking up the pizza it would side off the base, quality poor but it tasted fine.
Price is ok, but I have had better value for money.
Really cool venue and fantastic food and service
Usually yes but not after this experience. Pizza came out half cooked and had to be sent back but nothing was taken off the bill. Waited for a long time for the dessert menu and eventually had to request it.
After viewing many online images of Sophies I had high hopes for lunch in a nice setting. The reality was quite a shabby and bland room, bland menu and noisy atmosphere. Staff were very friendly but were very rushed. Hygiene was hit or miss. My drinks menu was covered in food. The floor around us was dirty. Won't be back.
Are waitress was slow, and didn't understand us, kept forgetting our order, which was frustrating for us and for our waitress .
Hi Aoife, sorry for any confusion! Appreciate your feedback we'll certainly take it in board. The Sophie's Team
Comfortable restaurant with brasserie type food. Always reliable.
Thanks for the 4 stars! The Sophie's Team
Great food, service and location. The drinks were lovely. The staff were particularly friendly. Enjoyed the evening very much
2nd time at Sophie’s in 3 weeks. Impressive place still but the service is still disappointing, although our waiter tried to make up for the waitreess who brought us our food’s desperate attitude!!! My guest loved her food. I had ordered the blueberry pancakes and I got the plain ones!!! Grrrr.... I wanted a bit of orange butter on the side and was told by that waitress that I could only make one choice! Ok...never mind. The friendly waiter made no fuss and brought me the precious orange butter.
Anyway, I will come back hoping for better service, still.
Staff was not pleasant, felt more like a hindrance to them. Ask when booking was it for an occasion which I stated a birthday and it clearly had no relevance because it wasn’t mentioned on arrival or throughout brunch , this may have been to the staff being hungover
Myself and my husband celebrated our wedding g anniversary in Sophie’s on sat night and we couldn’t have gone to a better place. The service was excellent very attentive , the food was delicious and we didn’t have a long wait on between courses . Can’t wait to go back
Pleasantly surprised on our visit here. Food excellent with a very well balanced menu, not too big but good variety.
Service excellent. We ordered our starters and when finished then ordered main course - great idea, since we weren’t familiar with portion sizes.
Will definitely return.
Hi Dorothy, thank you so much for visiting & for taking the time to leave a lovely review. So nice to hear we will see you again! Look forward to it! The Sophie's Team
Great food and a lovely atmosphere. A must when visiting Dublin!
Hi Emma, thanks for the 5 stars!! The Sophie's Team
Menu is lovely but needs more vegetarian/vegan options
Staff are always top notch and the building is so beautiful
But the upholstery in the corner seats really needs to be updated they look filthy and it’s literally the only thing lacking
I’ll still go back though
Great location the view is great, service was a bit slow and food was average, but would come here again for the location and view
