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 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 to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    Loved the vibe here. Arrived early got seated with some drinks at the bar. Seated on time, amazing food and service. Light and airy. Very trendy place. My only little criticism is you should not be charging 1.50 for a small tub of mayo. That’s poor!

    It was my son’s 19th birthday, I came from Kilkenny to have lunch with him in Dublin - wanting to make it special. There was nothing special about it. When I booked through Open Table I thought I had book Isabelle’s restaurant and realised I made a mistake but just went with it as I had paid a deposit. My Cesar salad was underwhelming, I am allergic to cheese and asked for a French dressing instead- which did not come and a cheese mayonnaise type condiment came in a dish. When I asked the waitress about this she took it away to check. Then I asked for balsamic vinegar and olive oil to make it myself but a regular white vinegar came. The fries were reheated and cold. My son’s pizza was good, my other guests burger was very basic, fries cold and underwhelming. I will not return to Sophie’s as was a total disappointment nor will I recommend it.

    It was an ok experience. Ordered duck ragu which I did not enjoy. Felt very rushed. There were lots of free tables & yet our waitress kept reminding us of our slot at the table as one member of the party was running late.

    We had a family meal with 6 people. Service was excellent, food was excellent. But the atmosphere is what really made it. The lighting is so soft allowing the great views over the Dublin night sky. Highly recommend trying this restaurant at least once. Last night was our 4th or 5th visit and it still offers us something new. Thank you so much to all the staff at Sophie's.

    Great location and love the roof top section outside. I think the food is heavily overpriced. We had pizza which is the only thing there to offer value and it was delicious. I don't go to Press-up restaurants for the food per se, i go because of its ‘standardised’ greatness. The food, service, tables, chairs, ambience, decor, view etc. are always the same - you know what you get. Yes the food is good, but i go there cause I always have a good time, not because the food is special. I just feel €30-€40 per main courses is a bit steep for a place where most people go for the vibe/experience as apposed to the food. However, that aside cant criticise anything else. Oh, really love the smokers area at the rooftop.

    It was our first time going there and both my partner and I were very satisfied by the overall experience! The food was delicious, all tastes complimenting each other and the main courses were also big enough to justify the prices. The service was excellent. Cannot recommend it enough, 10/10!

    Not much effort made for Valentine’s evening sittings - no set menu, no Prosecco on arrival, no Valentine’s teamed drinks/cocktails. Just an option of a sharing desert that wasn’t even printed on the menu. Food was good, service was just fine, would of expected more attentive service - not checked in with when mains arrived to see if everything was okay, water not topped up regularly - had to ask, wine not poured from bottle we ordered after initial glasses and condiment never arrived after request of another waitress. Experience was fine but not raring to go back after €150+ bill.

    Staff were all very pleasant and very helpful. Don’t know if I would get the gnocchi again, although it tasted very nice it was quite heavy and I wasn’t able to finish it due to the portion. Nevertheless our overall experience was very enjoyable and the views were amazing

    The place is such gorgeous, and so perfect for Sunday brunch on a gorgeous sunny day. I had mean to come for quite a while, and I was really looking forward to it. The staff were lovely and the location gorgeous, I just found the food very average and I was definitely expecting better for such a place. I had eggs Benedict- the bread wasn't a nice slice of bread, the potatoes very soggy, the tomatoes hardly cooked, definitely not roasted and the ham very salty. I saw the pizzas and they looked lovely maybe next time Ill try those.

    Fantastic food and lovely staff. We were told by the manger that he didn’t need our table back until 2 so we ordered a pudding at 1. To be told the table was needed for 130 so we have to leave at 120. Unfortunately we didn’t get our pudding.

    We were waiting 30minutes for our food order and when we queried it we found out our docket had been lost. We then had to wait for our food to be made. We were disappointed that no one asked us if we were OK, we had to ask someone.
