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.

Great food and good wine and very good service from staff.

The maitre De was a little offhandish telling us the table was needed back for 8 pm and the waitress also rushed us at the end 20 minutes before

It appears to me that these high end restaurants need to stop trading off service and customers against maximising revenue it not Mac Donald’s stop acting like it

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback and complimenting the great food, good wine and very good service from staff. We have a 2 hour seating policy but we are very flexible on this depending on how busy the restaurant is on the day.I was disappointed to read that you felt rushed at the end and if you decide to give us another chance in the future, email me directly at arvine@tomahawksteakhouse.ie where we can organise a later booking and you can enjoy a longer time at the table.

Very good steak, the best in town. We had a dinner with colleagues and we have only positive comments. Starters can be better, maybe more meat related, due to the style of the restaurant, but all is quality. We found the waiter who served us was a bit pushing, especially when it cames on drinks, she really wanted us to order something else at the end of the dinner, in a moment that we were having a chat. Overall nice restaurant.

Tomahawk is the place for steak in Dublin. The steaks are perfectly aged and cooked to perfection. All of the salads and sides were quite good. Our wait person, Wendy, was very well informed about the cuts of meat and the wine list. Top notch service!!!

Well worth the wait! My wife and I were in Dublin March of 2018 and found Tomahawk then, but the venue was closed for a private function. We made it back to Ireland and Dublin this year and Tomahawk was in our buck list. They did not disappoint. From the moment we steeped in out of the rain until we left. Service was top notch. The atmosphere was lovely. And the food was amazing. I am a big fan of meat, especially beef. I am telling you this was the finest cut, and best flavor of beef I have experienced. Keep you the great work.

The restaurant is in a basement. I would only recommend for late evening dining. When we were there it was full and very noisy. Lots of tourists. Tables are quite small for the dining options they have (shared steaks etc.)
The food was good. I had the Ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. Onion rings and broccoli also very good.
The wine selection is not very good and particularly in the affordable section the wine on the list is not attractive.
The service was very attentive. There were too few waiters for the size of the restaurant. So service was reactive of course.
Overall a nice restaurant to go for dinner during the week

Beautiful ambience at this restaurant, the staff very friendly and you get shown and talked through the different steaks available which is nice, all are matured in house and that really comes through in the flavour. We chose the tomahawk steak to share and it didn't disappoint. Cooked perfectly medium rare (slightly rarer on the thickest parts, but this was not a problem as it was so delicious) it was accompanied with a thick layer of fine crisply fried onions and we had the house salad and hand cut fries. Would highly recommend, the price good for the food and drink we had and would eat there again if I come back to Dublin. I would recommend booking as it seems very popular.

We were very well looked after from start to finish. The host Yann, knew us from the company and was more than accommodating and friendly. Waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. The wait time was a little more than I might have expected but understandable given the nature of the restaurant and what we ordered. The selection of wine was great and reasonably priced aswell. Ambience was lovely, music not intrusive at all. Overall it was the perfect treat for ourselves. We'll be back again

Positives: Food was great. Nice ambiance. Delicious whiskey sour cocktail.
Negatives: It was quite surprising to us that when we wanted to start with ordering appetisers, the waiter said she had to take all the orders together including the mains because the kitchen was too busy. For a restaurant at this price range this is not acceptable. The waiter was polite but a bit too pushy to get us more drinks and still forgot to bring the one beer I ordered.

Dear GokhanY, Thank you for review. With quality 28 day aged meat, cooked in a three way process (smoking, grilling and resting respectively), by the time you finish with your starters, there's not much wait for the steak as opposed to a long wait. I'm sorry this is not to your preference and maybe there was a lost in translation moment, but it's a "tried and tested method" which works to keep service smooth. I hope you understand and can return for more delicious steak! My kindest regards Yann.

Don't underestimate the steak portion. I had the Delmonico. To be honest, I didn't pay attention to the size, but I struggled to finish the main. Very delicious, I asked for med well, they obliged. In hindsight,medium would have been better. Lovely butternut squash open ravioli to start. Nice chips, tomato sauce (heathen that I am), all washed down with a lovely bottle of Waterford Estate Cabernet. Would certainly return. Friendly, courteous service, nice vibe.

Responded on 28 September 2019

Dear ajerseybear, Yes we like our steak portions big here at Tomahawk. We usually like to recommend you undercook your steak as it's been aged for 28 days, so it practically melts in your mouth. Beautiful choice of Cabernet Sauvignon to match a fatty rib-eye. It was a real pleasure to welcome you into our establishment and we look forward to your return. My kindest regards, Yann.

Such a great spot specially for meat, they explain you all about the cuts shown in the menu. Food is all great there, but when I asked for some bread along the meat they just provided "butter bread". They might offer a wider variety of bread. Everything else was really good, good attention and nice environment.

Delicious food and attentive staff however i did not like being seated on a corner table where myself and my partner were sat adjacent to each other instead of opposite making it harder to have a conversation.
