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.

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.

By far the best steak I have ever eaten. Service from when you enter to when you leave was just outstanding. The attention that each guest is given is exceptional.

I enjoyed a really nice meal with my family , steaks are amazing , although a bit on the expensive side .
My only complaint was I felt we were rushed to leave our table and I think at the price of the bill for 4 people 2hrs is too short . I would make sure if I go again that we have the table for longer .

We recommend you book after 8pm so you have no rush to worry about. Looking forward to welcoming you back. Kindest regards, Yann.

Service appalling. Ordered a €50 bottle of wine and got standard wine glasses and was told I need to order €80 plus to get proper goblets!! We were also served after another couple as it looked like they ordered more expensive wine so they were priority, even though we arrived first. We were given the wrong main courses and they were quickly swiped from us and passed to the couple next to us. I had poured sauce over my steak prodded it with my fork and still they served it to the couple right next to us. We weren’t offered an apology or any complimentary drink etc. Absolutely disgraceful service. Food was really nice but very overpriced.

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

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.
