A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.

Our New York – Italian – Irish 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.

Entertainment
On Fridays and Saturdays as the sun goes down, and the lights comes on, Sophie's comes alive. We pride ourselves on having one of the most welcoming late night bars in Dublin where all of our guests can enjoy the company of friends (old and new) in a relaxed, comfortable and genuine atmosphere. All of this happens from 11.30pm when our resident DJ comes on with an excellent mixture of the latest vibes. You won't want to go anywhere else.

Being treated to a birthday lunch, very enjoyable. I had a delicious risotto, and the vanilla ice cream was super. This was my 2nd visit, I recommend it to others. They were servicing the terrace, so we could not go out there which was very disappointing as it was a nice day.

We had travelled down to Dublin for an overnight stay and thought we would do a return visit to Sophie's during the day as we had enjoyed are last visit so much.
The restaurant was very very busy but somehow lacked atmosphere, i must say it has a much better vibe at night ! .
My partner was a bit disappointed in the food , his burger was a bit overdone and the burger bap and the fries were soggy.
We did mention it to our server and she said she would pass on our comments to the chef.
I was pleased with my choice the Steak was juicy and tender.
The server was attentive enough just doing her job but not enthuiastic.
Value for money ok what i would expect in Dublin as prices always that bit higher.
Would i return yes perhaps at night for a drink and to soak up the spectacular views.
For a meal no ...there are much better restaurants around Dublin who offer a bit of a personal experience .

Three of us gathered for a catchup over food and wine which was excellent. The waitress was very helpful facilitating my Vegan friend by creating her own Pizza and offering a vegan salad as starter , She also was very knowledgable about the food , its source and the view !! Would highly recommend ,

Incredible views, fantastic food, great variety, great bar and fantastic service. Everyone from the vegetarians in our party to the paleo found something delicious. Local, fresh and organic! Spectacular service too! Great way to celebrate my boy’s birthday. I highly recommend Sophie’s for any occasion.

Went for dinner before a gig at Iveagh Gardens, it was quiet when we arrived but got busy very quickly. Had mains and starters, both good - prawns, goats cheese and two pizzas. Asked for a drink but was told it wasn't available, only to see loads of others drinking it! Wine was OK but not great. Nice views of Dublin depending on your seat. Some good staff but others not appreciative of customers at all.

Had breakfast at Sophie's while visiting Dublin. Excellent food, great atmosphere with a panoramic view of the city. Wait staff was very accommodating. They have an outdoor seating area, and I would imagine the bar scene would be a lot of fun here.

Booked lunch for 8 people at 2.30 upon arrival we are told kitchen closes at 3.00 and pizza was our only option. I am a coeliac so am unable to eat gluten. I had to move my group on a busy Sunday to somewhere that could accommodate us for lunch. I feel when the booking was confirmed by phone they should have been mentioned kitchen closing at 3pm. Extremely disappointing

Sophie’s was the best restaurant during our Dublin citytrip! We would recomend for 100% to everybody.
If we ever come back to Dublin, we will book The Dean, as it looked like an amazing place to stay.
I would say Sopfie’s/The Dean is a hidden gem for tourists.

Lovely food and friendly staff but felt like it was a race to get us out as quickly as possible. We were seated and finished 3 courses with the bill on the table in an hour flat. As it was our wedding anniversary it felt quite rushed and not particularly relaxing. Nice atmosphere for drinks I'd say.
