Steakhouse
Step out of the bustling cobblestone streets of Temple Bar and down the stairs to Tomahawk Steakhouse where beautiful windows allow in light from street level. This is an intimate and unique dining setting – and our steaks are the star of the show.

We have spent months researching where to source the best steaks from around the world and the results of that exploration is there is no better beef than Irish and we are proud to say that we serve only the market-best at Tomahawk.

Tomahawk has 80 delightful seats for you and your party to choose from. We have comfy corners matched with matte timber tables adorned with leather seats, where diners can enjoy their delicious meals under the ambient street lighting that pours in from above. Or you can choose to perch comfortably along the gorgeous timber dining bar set around our open kitchen and watch the theatre of a professional kitchen at work in front of you.

No gluten free options for the cheeseboard, which was disappointing. There should be gluten-free crackers, or at least gluten free bread!

Dear ShonaO, We were very disappointed we couldn't provide gluten free crackers and gluten free bread with your cheese board. If we would have known in advance we could have made the appropriate arrangements. We hope this miscommunication issue doesn't tarnish your view of Tomahawk and that we hope to see you again. Kind regards, Arvine General Manager

Only thing is I didnt realise they automatically added to gratuities to the bill, there was only five of us, we left a cash tip too,only realised when I left that they have charged us gratuity too, but they went out of their way to look after us.

Dear DarrenM, Very disappointed to read this review. This matter is being investigated as we normally only put a service charge on tables of 6 or more. I hope this hasn't tarnish your view of Tomahawk and if you wish to make a booking in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at arvine@tomahawksteakhouse.ie and I will make sure to look after you.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate his birthday, I’ve been there before so I was very excited to come back. We arrived 15 minutes early and our table was ready which was great. Waiter came to take drink order, showed us the steaks and we ordered. Food arrived in an appropriated time considering this steaks takes a bit longer to cook, we’ve enjoyed our meal. But when we finished we had to wait 30 minutes for the waiter to take the plates, he looked at us quite a few times and completely ignored us, we felt invisible, we were laughing at how ridiculous the situation was, even the table beside us noticed what was happening, they arrived after us, finished their meals after us and the same waiter took their plates and offered them deserts before us. Eventually I caught his attentions and he offered dessert menus, after another 10 minutes he came to take our order, we passed on desert as we waited a total 40mins from eating and finishing to being offered the dearest menus, we weren’t in the mood anymore and asked for the bill. When he asked if everything was okey we told him about the waiting and he apologized but there was no excuse, the restaurant wasn’t that busy, he wasn’t that busy, it was very disappointing.

It was my husband’s 40th birthday. We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from front of house who knew it was a special occasion. We were quickly shown to a lovely quiet table with great views of the open grill.
Our waiter quickly brought us water while we looked over the menu. He then showed us the cuts of steak that were available but we were in no doubt that the only dish we wanted to try was 30 oz tomahawk steak with loaded onion stack.
We were absolutely gobsmacked by the stunning dish that was placed in front of us. The steak was cooked rare and literally melted in the mouth.
Once we’d finished. We were asked if we wanted to look at the dessert menu???? I just laughed as I couldn’t move!!!!!
The waiter then brought out a surprise for my husband. A rich chocolate torte with happy birthday written in chocolate on the plate and candles. This was even a surprise for me.
The whole experience was absolutely amazing and would highly recommend this place to everyone for any occasion. Definitely 5*

The ambiance is great. The only thing i would criticize are the benches. I was sitting on the bench and my girlfriend was sitting on the chair. I found the angle of the bench inconvenient because it felt like sliding back away from the table.

Besides that, great service and great food (We had the Tomahawk steak for 2)! Very friendly and competent staff. I can definitly recommend this restaurant!

Extremely overrated. The Tomahawk steak is very gimmicky, with nothing interesting about it. Very grisly and not aged at all. Would not recommend.

Tomahawk
Responded on 6 January 2020

Dear Kimberlyb, We do daily checks on all of our steaks and assure you they are all dry aged for 28 days before being put on the grill for service. We apologise if the Tomahawk cut was not up to your standards. Please, if you do like your rib-eye's, come back and try the Delmonico, we promise you won't be disappointed. Kindest regards, Yann.

Loved the food, Loved the setting. Only major downfall for us all on the evening was the temperature of the restaurant. WE understood it was partly to do with the flame grill and front of house stoves but nothing was done to counteract it. All 4 of us were uncomfortable for the entire time we dined.

Would still recommend the restaurant for the food.

Tomahawk
Responded on 6 January 2020

Dear Robert, Yes we agree, if there was an off switch button on the fire we would use it, but unfortunately that's not how it works. We apologise the temperature of the restaurant was not to your liking, but are delighted to hear that the temperature of the steaks was more adequate. Hopefully, when you return, you can request a table further away from the action so it is more suitable to your needs. We very much look forward to welcoming you back. My kindest regards, Yann.
