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.

We really liked our meal in Sophie's. We easily reserved a table a few days before so when we arrived we were seated right away. We had a nice booth beside a window which was really nice for the views of Dublin. I had the pepperoni pizza which was very nice and cheesy, and my partner had the pork with the black pudding which tasted lovely too. The service was prompt, they have a nice drinks menu, the cocktails are a bit pricy but nothing different to normal Dublin prices. Our bill for the two mains, a cocktail and a drink came to €50.

Arrived on time and our table wasn't ready, staff quickly sorted so no problem there. menu is limited and prices are high for what is on offer, there was a good atmosphere and the restaurant is a nice place to be. Staff, while very busy are attentive. Wouldn't be rushing back. Overall good but not great.

Overall not a good experience, when I had expected more. Service and food were fine, but nothing special. When booking the table it was stated that we would have the table for 2 hours. However shortly after we arrived we were told they would need it back in 1 hour 45 mins, which taking into account turnover time was okay, but then we were told they would need it back after 1 hour 30 minutes. Felt very rushed and didn’t appreciate the constantly changing story. We accepted this and were told that there were plenty of tables to finish our drinks, however when we moved, we found no free tables and had to stand.

We went here for my daughters 21st Birthday. Food and service very good. Thanks Peter who was very attentive and had a lovely personality. It was the first time I had tear drop peppers! (Served with Scallops) Wine list was fair, nothing really jumped out me. I had a Peperoni Pizza for Main which was superb. Bill came to over 200 euros. Inc a. Couple of cocktails for 4 guests. ! The only disappointment as stated was when I made the booking I stated it was for a birthday. Unfortunately this was not acknowledge, whilse all around was. For this reason I did not tip. I would recommend a visit, views, ambiance outstanding, food very good, cost Mid range cost.

We loved our dinner at Sophie's! Loads of food on the plate and every morsel was delicious! The service was very quick and efficient - we were not waiting long for our food. Such a great view of the city too and a great place for drinks with a view.

Hard to find Sophies as it only had a tiny sign on a floor board but got there in the end. Well structured see-through kitchen, striking views over Dublin and even a touch of fun with the swings which made a great first impression. Very friendly staff who genuinely look like they enjoy working there and this helped to make a great buzz in the restaurant. On the food, I had the chicken and also tried a fish dish which was very tasty but feel they could take these dishes a step further to match the standard of the amazing restaurant. I had a late lunch so didn’t get to try to many dishes so will sample more next time I’m in town, steaks did look good. Had some cocktails on the rooftop which topped the night off. Will definitely be back!

My mum and I visited on Friday to celebrate getting my wedding dress that morning. We both ordered the same. Within 20 min of leaving the restaurant I became ill, my mum then began after 40 min. We had to rush home. We were ill for the rest of the evening and had to cancel my birthday meal out the following day. I emailed the restaurant and got no reply. I would never return though at the time I enjoyed the restaurant.

Good time with nice food and cocktails, were asked to leave the table after food and go to the bar, which would be fine but there were loads of tables open all afternoon which we could have moved to if they wanted our larger one back.

Had lunch here. There was an excellent menu and we were spoilt for choice. The food was excellent as was the coffee. My friend had a classic burger, while I had one of the fish. This will be my new go-to lunch spot in the south of the city.
Loved this place.

Service was slow with long delay for only soup and mozzarella salad starter. Similar delay with main courses. Decided against dessert as it had got too late but was happy to spend more.
