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.

Was recommended Tomahauk by a friend. She said it was pricey but worth it as excellent food and drink and fantastic service so we went for a special occasion. Great atmosphere with a full restaurant at 5pm. They have lovely touches like showing you the type of steak on the menu before you order and overall the service was efficient and courteous. The sides were tasty and the drinks were very enjoyable. We would like to go back.

Pretty good overall....kitchen nearly caught fire but the steak was great, which we came for....traffic was manic so we were slightly late, which meant we were rushed towards the end....in fairness that was our own making.
But I’d definitely try again. Bit pricey. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive 7.5/10

Staff were friendly and inviting, professional, curtious and extremely knowledgable about the menu. The food was well presented, plentiful and well prepared. It may look expensive on the face of it, but overall I felt it was extremely good value for money and the best steak I have eaten.

Had to send my steak back twice was too over cooked. But the biggest let disappointment was the chief had the bright idea of rubbing the steak in origano prior to cooking. And also did this with my partners burger. Why anyone would want the flavour of there steak ruining by been over powered with a very strong tasting herb is beyond me. The man just couldn't grasp rare. No offer to knock anything off the bill despite the steak been sent back a 2nd time. Overall very disappointing.

Excellent service but food only ok. Tomahawk steak is more bone than meat. Pepper sauce was watery and tasteless. We sent it back but the same came back. Chocolate ganache desert was good.

I was staying at the Clarence Hotel with my partner - we were in Dublin for a 2 night stay. Tomahawk was fantastic - the food and the service exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate in returning and will recommend the restaurant to our friends. It is most definitely worth a visit!

Arrived to a warm welcome even after phoning to say we were slightly delayed, and having to leave for a concert earlier than we thought.
Our waitress was understanding, helpful and engaging and throughout the service was quick, efficient, friendly and personable. Detailed description of the cuts of meat presented on a tray and specials, a good wine list; prices seemed more than reasonable and a nice touch was the fresh warm bread & butter to share whilst waiting. After a short while, our steaks arrived perfectly cooked (rare fillet and medium rare delmonico) with garlic butter and bearnaise and sides of rich cauliflower cheese, hearty onion and bacon mash, and the airy yet flavourful onion 'crisps'. Good and different choices of sauces and sides to match the quality steaks.
Buzzing atmosphere on a busy Saturday night in Dublin but still felt attended to and had enough room and didn't feel too overcrowded.
Definitely worth a visit.

Background taste like some sort of seasoning on both steaks was a bit too much and meant the steak lost its taste.

Everything else fine. Service excellent. But overall a little disappointed versus previous experience

Food was very good.

The staff were all very friendly and good however the service was extremely slow.

We waited a very long time to 1st of all get our drinks, order our food....

A table of 4 so not a big table, the place was not totally full either.

Table booked for 7:45pm..... mains did not come out for nearly 2 hours after we first sat down.... the service was incredibly slow but thankfully we were not in a rush.... our waiter was a very nice man so no complaints there....

one other thin was the side option for spinach...... there was only a tiny amount in it so we had to ask did they run out of stock.... in fairness they promptly apologised and cooked up a plate of spinach...

other than that it was great and it would not put me off giving it another go.

Ordered Delminico and Sirlion steaks and disappointed that meat was tough. Salads were very good. Probably would not go back. Quality of food for price was not worth it.

Had a business dinner there and the staff and ambiance was pleasant. The menu is expensive and from this I ordered a medium rare T bone steak. The steak was cooked medium and this took away from my experience. The waitress did ask if everything was ok, but I felt that this was more of a comment than a genuine enquiry. I explained that my steak was not to my satisfaction - however - I declined to have it replaced as this would have created an awkward situation with my guest eating while I have no food. And, it does take a long time for food to arrive.

While the restaurant is pleasant, with prices of c€34-38 for our steaks (before accompaniments) there is absolutely no excuse or scope for presenting the main ingredient overdone.

Quite disappointing.

When you pay 35-40 for a steak I find it galling to pay extra for sauce. Overall enjoyed the experience but would not survive in leaner times.
