Great location to catch up with friends. Unfortunately I didn’t quite pick the right choice from the menu. The lunch looked lovely! Nice views of town. Brunch was slightly interrupted by the vacuum cleaner during our meal... perhaps needs must, although if you could resist the urge next time that’d be great?!
I’d come again to sample cocktails and choose more wisely off the menu.

It took 25 minutes between seating and a waitress to approach our table. I found that it was quite cold in the restaurant. While the food was good it was disappointing to have to wait another 25 minutes to get the bill. We approached the Maitre d and he was unhelpful. Overall disappointing as we were celebrating a special birthday.

We had the best time at Sophie’s, the pizza was better than pizza I’d tried in Italy! The prices were fair and the service was outstanding. They remembered my sisters birthday and bought out a plate that said happy birthday. We both had the best time and it really made our Dublin visit!

I'm a regular so to an extent am biased but the reason I go back frequently is simply that it is a great venue; excellent food, attentive staff and a view of Dublin to die for. Lunchtimes are very good value for money and for business users like myself the food is delivered quickly so lunches are not too long.

Venue is one of the best in Dublin on a rooftop with design forniture. Worth going there from time to time for Sunday brunch.
Personally think venue is better than meal: food is good quality but plates are not very rich and you have a better value for money in other places in Dublin.
Also i've asked for extra 2 slices of bread and they would bill them; i needed them to be gluten free as i'm coeliac and i was given the regular bread by mistake: they realized they brought me the wrong one, only after i had already eaten it.

Overall, nice location but i wouldn't go there again for food.

Came with my fiance for an anniversary dinner. Had a drink in the Dean Bar which was nice. The setting is great, real trendy bar with good music and ambiance. We headed up to Sophie's and were greeted by a welcoming hostess who directed us to the bar while our table was prepared. The waitress was the most efficient I have ever come across. Had pumpkin soup to start which was a delight followed by pizza which was unbelievable. My partner loved her cocktails she tried a few and the chocolate lovers was her fav. After a few beers I had a nice manly drink, one for the ladies. The whole evening was delightful. I have already recommended.

Visited Sophie's on 27th October for a special 50th birthday celebration for my husband. We were visiting Dublin for the weekend and I booked it on the strength of previous reviews and location. Panoramic windows provided a great view and the food and service were both very good. Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed at the seating arrangements. We were seated at a table for two alongside others which I can only describe as looking like a speed dating set up. We had no privacy and were very conscious that our conversation and those of couples along side us could be heard throughout our meal. I did request that we be moved into a booth but was informed they were all booked. Sophie's seriously needs to look at taking out at least one if not two of the tables and provide more space to give couples a more private and comfortable dining experience. Also, unless you are a size 6 or below, keep your legs crossed because if you need to excuse yourself you will be in danger of taking out the table next to you as there is so little space to move.

It was great to spend my husband's birthday at Sophie's. The food and especially the service were very good. I truly recommend this restaurant. The price was a bit high so unfortunately it is not a place to go every weekend.
Overall I really enjoyed the experience and the surprise birthday cake in the end.

My husband and I had an early dinner at Sophie's. My request for a booth had been granted. He had the Scallop starter and commented they were the best he has ever had and I had the soup, which was piping hot.

Our entrees, the filet and gnocchi were equally good. They put a twist on them and add flavor combinations that are delicious. Service was excellent; friendly yet professional. Our wine was topped off throughout dinner.

There is something for everyone on the menu.

We came here for my boyfriends 21st brunch. Our poached eggs tasted like vinegar or baking soda, whatever they put in the water while cooking them, they were too sour to eat. I ordered two poached eggs with a grilled tomato and it came with potatoes not a grilled tomato? Nobody came to our table during the meal to ask how it was so we would have had to walk down to the other end to get a waiter. We did not want to cause a fuss as it was a special occasion but this food was beyond disgusting and the service was not good.
