Very cozy cafe with a nice seating area, comfortable sofas and great food (incl. rather big variety of brunch options). Would definitely recommend it for weekend brunches :)

Food was amazing and the views. The service was excellent. We had Annemarie serving us and she was extremely helpful, full of recommendations, very friendly and chatty and never left us unattended all night.
The only thing that went wrong is that I asked for seats beside the window which I was told I had and when we got there we were sent to seats that weren't beside the window. It was my girl friends birthday and I was disappointed with this.
Although this was a minor issue after receiving grade A treatment from Annemarie and the food was amazing. Excellent night in all and id well recommend this place to anyone.

Everything was fab from start to finish. Host was so friendly on arrival. Although busy they never rushed us. Had the sweetest waitress, a girl from Galway. She added to a already super experience. Food was delicious, loved the presentation. Will definitely be back.

Went for dinner here on a Monday night with my aunt and her husband before the went home to New Zealand. As the city was very busy, we ended up being late for our booking. Ciara on the door was great however and there was no mention of us being late when we got there. The food was great and the service was excellent. The view is also quiet nice. I would highly recommend it.

I booked dinner at Sophie's for my birthday last Saturday. I normally go to Sophie's and I'd normally reccomend it however this time I was gravely disappointed.

For a start our table was under a vent and it was freezing. The waitress was rather unfriendly and took about 20 minutes to come over and take our order and another half an hour after we'd finished to take our plates and ask if we wanted dessert. We then had to ask for the bill as the waitress never came over to ask if we needed anything after that.

When the waitress finally took our bill she had presumed we didn't want change (which was an assumption of a 40€ tip) which we felt was very rude to assume on her part.

We left straight after the meal as we were very dissatisfied with the service. We did not want to complain that night as we felt it would really ruin the night.

I expected a lot more from Sophie's.

Our waiter (a young guy with braces) was lovely. Good was tasty if not a little lukewarm and quite expensive, €16 something for sourdough with eggs and pancetta. Nonetheless an enjoyable overall experience.

Great tasting food, fantastic location and ambience, great atmosphere. However, all this was marred by the service. Examples:
1. I ordered a Vodka & Tonic. `i received an empty glass of ice and a bottle of tonic water. I mentioned it to the server whho quickly replaced it and brought the vodka. But still.....
2. Aside from forgetting my drink, the rest of the service for the first 20 minutes was fine. Thereafter, very little response from any server unless I actually raised by arm as if I was at a conference and wanted to ask a question. Then a server came to us.
3. Attention from any service staff got so bad that eventually I walked up to the cashier at the front of the restaurant and asked her if we could get some attention. Only then did things improve.

Had been here before when it first opened for a business dinner (food was good but expensive, views were good as it was daytime, company could have been better!)
Came back over a year later for last minute date night (Sunday night so many first choices not open) as prices had dropped so thought it was worth a try (own money this time!). Sunday night so was relatively not busy, service was efficient but not particularly friendly or personable (no craic with any of the wait staff), food was really good (but came out pretty quickly, particularly the starters - a symptom of being quiet I guess). Risotto and squid to start - both really good. Featherblade and scallops (double starter portion) was ok. Overall, pretty good but nothing to rave about. With the level of choice, I won't be rushing back or suggesting it as a place to be!

 (Dublin)·Dined on 30 September 2017

I was very disappointed by the fact that there were many people allowed at the bar, just beside my table, already at 9pm. We arrived at 9pm, 4 of us, for dinner. It was a special occasion and I booked 1 month in advance to have a seat. We could not understand each other when talking as the men at the bar were constantly shouting, talking loud, dancing and drunk. I mean, Sophie's is not a pub in Temple Bar and I would expect a different type of venue if I book a table and pay what I pay to eat there. We just wanted a nice meal in a nice restaurant, chilling and talking after a long day. We ended up rushing with our food and leaving as soon as we could not to have to bear that ridiculous noise any longer. Again, this is not the mood I want to leave a restaurant with, if I pay much for a meal and drinks. It is the restaurant's responsibility to make sure that all the customers enjoy the service and are treated for what they pay, so I would have liked to see that the waiters/manager (AT LEAST) asked the big group of loud guys standing beside us to be less noisy and more respectful. Nothing similar happened though. I have been to the restaurant three times already. This last time was VERY DISAPPOINTING.

Bar service was very poor - 2 barmen on and more interested in flirting with the waitresses than serving customers (and there was only 3 - 4 at the bar !).. Table service was efficient; lunch menu very limited; food was good... but as the Sun was shining in the window, we asked that the blinds be lowered... but shortly afterwards, they were lifted again... We asked THREE times and eventually when they raised them the 4th time, we left to continue our evening elsewhere !!. Nice views from rooftop restaurant but staff training needs attention !

Very pleasant night - birthday dinner. I booked a few weeks before our visit - was put at the table beside the kitchen which I was very disappointed with - I mentioned to the guy in charge and he kindly moved us with no issue at all. Pricy I thought for what we had ! Overall an enjoyable night and will return .
