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.

By far the nicest steak I have every eaten !! Couldn’t fault it one bit, I would recommend to anyone. Myself and my boyfriend wanted steak for dinner and that’s what we got however the menu hadnt much option appealing to me other than the steak however I can not fault the place !!

Although the food and service were fantastic I was disappointed by some of the options. For example, I ordered a fruit bowl expecting a variety of fruits and received only watermelon and grapes.

Very good food. A good place if you want to hang in the bar. Too noisy with the bar in the middle of the restaurant. Beautiful view and kind/helpfull waitress.

We were a group of 7 for a 21st birthday celebration and our adult children had recommended Sophie's. We had a lovely booth at the windows and as there were two elderly aunts in the party, there was plenty of room for all. The whole experience was really lovely and we will definitely be back.

Our waitress did a great job considering it was so busy. We were not under time pressure but if we had been it would have been too slow. Crab salad was very small portion but caesar salad and tarragon chips were fabulous.

we booked this months ago for our visit to dublin and asked for the best table and as special.occasion made to feel special as a 50th birthday. we were contacted the day before and reiterated special birthday and was told it was in hand. we arrived for our reservation and although the view was great my friend whose birthday it was wasnt even wished happy birthday even though.we said.it was for a.special birthday. we had our food all ok but the pork chop was dry and not.worth the 28 euros to be honest. we spent nearly 300 euros for an average night out and l we were slightly disappointed

Good food, slightly disappointing that our server refused to allow minor substitutions, my friend requested to switch cream for yogurt and was refused as they don't serve yogurt even though it was elsewhere on the menu, and my bagel with smoked salmon and spinach had no spinach. The Eton mess was horrible, at least four times more cream than meringues!!!! But the remaining dishes were really good, service was good, drinks were great and atmosphere was lovely !!!!!

Had dinner on Thursday in Sophie's. It was a birthday celebration. Service and food were very good. Only negative steak arrived medium , I ordered medium rare.
We ordered cocktails and had a great bottle of Portuguese wine.
Because it was a birthday celebration they arrived with a birthday dessert of Ice-cream with a candle and Happy birthday Iced on the plate.
This is a great restaurant. It is on the top floor of the Dean Hotel and has fabulous view over the City.
Really busy restaurant, with a great atmosphere. The restaurant takes over the whole top floor of the hotel. With huge ceiling to floor windows on 3 sides and a roof top terrace on one side.
Would recommend it for a night out with friends and they cater for large groups.

Possibly an issue through the booking site as I was able to book in for Brunch on Wednesday morning. On arrival however, I was informed that Bruch was only avaliable on weekends. Great view of the city and a nice atmosphere. Food was unfaultable.

When I arrived, I found the staff not as attentive or welcoming as I thought at the front, escorted to table, the waitresses seemed really busy and again not attentive, just wanted you in and out, was the impression. I brought a date, and felt not that charming of a venue, considering a new roof top bar. There were many hen parties at it, and it was very loud. After our glasses of wine, the waitress, was like we have to take your order and you are supposed to order food....At that point, I was declined to order food, as felt too rushed feeling for me, rather than relaxing experience. After, we went outside to the rooft top, I had to go back in and order two glasses of wine, the bar staff did not circulate the whole bar area, and so after a few mins waiting, whilst looking at everyone else waiting along to be served, moved around and was told move to another location to order, which I did and eventually after 20 mins wait got two glasses of wine....I would not return simply for the chaos feel and lack of customer service....

Had an amazing time here, staff were phonemenal and so friendly. Food was amazing, and drinks were delicious. Prices are high but not unreasonable. The atmosphere is second to none, and the views are possibly the best in Dublin. Cannot recommend this place enough.

Very good energetic restaurant with classy and contemporary feel to it. Great views of the city at night and nice rooftop area.

Would definitely recommend, cocktails and pizza were on point. Only slight issue was that table service was a bit slow. Definitely a place for groups and lots of conversation.

Buzzing atmosphere on a Saturday night with fantastic views of the city. Delicious food with excellent service. The heated terrace was an extra bonus after finishing our meal. Also great place if you only wanted a drink at the bar - list of cocktails, together with beer on tap. Highly recommend.

We had booking for 9.30pm which is quite late. If I knew that restaurant turns into bar after certain time I would not book it because it was too noisy for meal with friends. Other than that I really enjoyed food it was really really tasty and good choice for my friend who cant eat gluten. I ordered alcohol free cocktail and unfortunately bar didnt have ingredients for it
This was my second visit in the restaurant and I have to say I enjoyed first one alot more
Over all I would definitely recommended!!

All was good but we felt a bit rushed - I had not been told, when I booked the table, that there would be a second sitting and that we were expected to vacate the table after effectively less than two hours. We felt particularly uncomfortable as the waiter repeatedly came to the table reminding us that we'd have to be gone by 8.30pm. Otherwise everything was enjoyable and I will come again - if I get a table that I can comfortable settle at - even if I end up leaving after two hours.
