Italian
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, where we have sun loungers when it’s hot, blankets and heaters when it’s not.

The location and ambiance are great, unfortunately the service and food are lacking. We had crispy shrimp - way over cooked and chewy and crab & asparagus salad - the crab tasted like tinned crab meat. Entrees were seafood linguine - extremely over cooked. The manager was kind enough to only charge for our drinks, as we weren’t eating - but seriously I just wanted to enjoy a nice dinner and left hungry. Service is mediocre. Drinks were nothing special - overall it’s a typical hotel restaurant.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Sophie’s. The staff is appropriately attentive. The food was delicious, the presentations we’ll done. And then there’s the 180 degree views of the City of Dublin from the Rooftop of The Dean Hotel where Sophie’s is located. It’s a ‘not to be missed’ dining experience for those visiting the city. If I lived there I would be a regular!

Great place to eat. The location is wonderful, great urban views of the area. Antipasti sharing plate was a great start. We all had pizza, with various toppings and were very happy with our choices. Loved our seat from where we could watch the ham being sliced and the pizza dough being "thrown". Service excellent, nothing fussy just right.

We had a table of 9 and were looked after very well by our polish waiter.. Food was superior with everyone enjoying their meal. It has a great atmposphere with the bar in the center of the venue.. Cool views over the city..thoroughly enjoyed our night and took lots of photos on the infamous swing.. Would highly recommend. Bar downstairs for roadies was very hip with some great sounds from the DJ..

Great location, great food with friendly, hard working staff. Hard to beat for brunch. I had the Full Irish and I was certainly full afterwards! Kids had the pancakes, of course. Unfortunately for me, they were were able to finish them all, without any help. Kids even managed to sit on the swings without falling off! ;)

Sophie’s food is fine however despite the fact that we had ordered multiple starters, mains, desserts, drinks etc it was made abundantly when the music was turned up way too loud that we should just eat up & leave so that people purely drinking could take our seats despite reserving the table well in advance for a family gathering. This was a shame as it left a bitter taste, we moved out to the terrace which was packed & eventually just left early. Probably won’t be back.

We were eating our dessert and the waitress asked us to leave 3 times as they have a group after us. Our bill was around 200€ and we have been kicked out. The food was excellent but they threat very bad people. It was the birthday if my wife and we could not enjoy it.

Sophie's is a great venue, with a selection of table options, and a great view. Myself and dining companion both ordered the SeaBass, but were disappointed that it comes with very little else, for a rather hefty €23. No veg or potatoes, except for some samphire. We ordered a side of parmesan and tarragon fries, with pancetta, which were excellent. But €29 for an adequate lunchtime main course is a bit steep. I'd still eat here again, but would order something better value next time. The food service was a bit slow, and we had to rush the meal, when received, to get back to work.

We had a Birthday brunch in Sophie's last Monday. good weather in Dublin made the best of the views. Brunch was very tasty and good value. Great atmosphere with enough noise to give atmosphere but not enough to be intrusive. A nice touch was the arrival of a small dessert with a candle and a Happy Birthday message. We were looked after by Pyotr who was attentive and, like the rest of the staff we dealt with, good fun. We finished our brunch out on the terrace. It was a great experience all round.

Lovely for brunch nicely presented. Maybe too many black beans is the only quibble in the Huevos Rancheros. Great view on a nice day. Dessert fantastic, all my favorite things together but heavy so shared it.

Noisy enough for 1pm, noise from kitchen and staff banging cutlery. Quick service at the beginning when ordering but it slowed down then when we finished and it was tricky to get a waiters attention. Nice food but extremely expensive for what it is.

Setting is great. Had the full Irish. Scrambled eggs were grey. Not sure how they did that but they served it ? Did not complain but really should have but didn't need that first thing in the morning. Cheap cotton napkins which left lint all over my clothes. Will not be back.

Absolutely wonderful evening! We came to Sophie’s for a farewell dinner for a friend visiting from Australia. The host was friendly and welcoming and we had a lovely booth table. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was gorgeous. There was a slight delay on our mains coming out and she was straight over to us to offer apologies and a complimentary drink while we waited. Cannot fault our special night at Sophie’s. Delighted.

Lovely place to eat, tables a bit too close together, it was our anniversary and I felt it lack the romantic touch as we were hearing conversations on either side of our table. When I went to sit beside my husband the waitress told me to move as there was more people coming over I said I would when they arrived, she asked me to move again even though I told her I would. Felt very awkward.
