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.

Tomahawk is great. Love the food and the setting. Service is consistently good. Only small thing i would mention, and this is a matter of preference but the Menu has been changed slightly recently. The sides are not a good as before. There was an awesome side of asparagus and mushroom in creamy sauce which has been removed. The Parmesan fries are gone too! Bring em back:)

Delicious steaks but overpriced when you consider that you also have to pay for anything extra with your steak, e.g. Potatoes or veg or even sauce is extra

Went for a birthday meal, service was fantastic ! We were offered still or sparkling water for the bill to arrive & be charged 5 euros for this due to this the tip was reduced to a euro & some oddments when this could of been a 7euro tip. Food was good wasn’t as good as we were expecting due to this we wouldn’t return wish we had gone next door !

Excellent food and ambiance. This is not a place for a quick meal as the food and service takes a little long, however the meat is truly excellent (as are the sides) and the service is charming and helpful.

The food was great, as is in many steak houses around Dublin, but value for money was poor. A bottle of still water costed 5 euros, that i found a bit excesive. The food was very pricey also.

Great food but a bit expensive. In Belgium for the same price, we have a bigger salad than that we got (for 6 more euros) and have a big amount of fries. The quality of the meat is great, it was delicious, but if there is something to complain about, it is the price. I would recommend it, though, thanks to service and quality of products :)

I'm not Irish, I'm Catalan... So, maybe these comments haven't got added value for everyone.
In general, the food is good, especially the starters (steak tartar and Korean calamari). In the other hand for me the meat was too grilled, we asked for a blue range.
Furthermore, the prices are higher than other options with the same product.

Dear Xavier, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share your feedbacks with us. I am glad that you enjoyed the starters and was disappointed that the steak was not cooked to your liking. If this was mentioned to us on the night, we would have replaced it straight away as we do a quality check during every guests meal.Again I am very sorry and hope that this will not tarnish your views of Tomahawk. Kind regards, Arvine General manager

Service was slow and very overpriced. Selection of starters was poor. Steaks are sold on there own...have to pay for sauce and sides seperate? Nice setting but will not be returning with them prices. Crazy to pay €120 for 2 main courses and a couple of bottles of water.

Have eaten in your premises twice previously and could not complain about anything however on this occasion we were both very disappointed .We started with the Calamari which was over salted , we then ordered the tomahawk steak for two , we were informed that this would take the best part of an hour however it was served to us within 30 minutes of having ordered it , the meat itself was beautifully cooked however we felt that the portion of meat served was very small for the amount charged, indeed the board was covered in an excessive amount of onion rings , they were just heaped and it seemed they were filling the board just for the sake of it , we ordered two sauces and both were on the salty side , to say we were not happy is a bit of an understatement. It will be a while before we might consider visiting again , if ever .

Great steak! We had the tomahawk between us and it was incredible.
They haven’t tried to cram too many tables into the restaurant which results in a great atmosphere... quiet and sophisticated, but not so quiet that you can’t have a conversation without fear of being loud!

The steak was nice but I had the 'special' 8oz fillet, for 40 instead of its normal 34 euro. As it came with vegetables of carrot, asparagus, potato and something else I thought this was a good offer and I always likt to try a special - unfortunately when it arrived it was really just a small circle of potato with some flecks of vegetable in it and a drizzle of pureed carrot. It would have been cheaper for me to order the normal priced fillet (it was no different to that) and add vegetables from the side dishes. I did not feel it was special, it wasn't nicer than the vegetables on offer and I felt that the description of this potato circle was really just a sales tactic and not accurately described. I am not happy about paying 6 euro for a small circle of mash!

We arrived on time with the restaurant nice and quite, we were taken to our table which was in a nice quite corner but that’s where the fun stoped, we waited 20 mins and then I had to ask if we could have a drink , we ordered our food and then waited 1 hr for the starters whitch were underwhelming to say the least, after a further 30 mins the stakes arrived and both over cooked, the staff were pretty uninterested. The table next to us complained quite strongly .. to say tomahawk needs a shake up is an understatement .. and all for 160 euro.... come on....sort yourselves out it wasn’t even busy...

I love the food the most. It was so lovely and will definitely be back. The place was cozy, really good. Some tourists were noisy but it was tolerable. The service was great but the waiter (boy) forgot to bring us the dessert menu after asking him. We've waited for maybe 10 to 20mins until the other waiter (girl) saw us waiting at the table to be approached. She was very friendly, attentive and knows what the customers need. The manager realized what was happened so he immiediatley took an action and gave us complimentary dessert. Thank you so much!
