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.
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
Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your experience with us, we take every review seriously and will take your feedbacks on board for the future. Kind regards, Arvine
The food was delicious and we liked the atmosphere of the restaurant pretty much!! The quality of the meat was excellent. We had a lovely night out!!!
Dear AikateriniK, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share your experience with us. We were delighted to read that you had a lovely night out and we look forward welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Arvine
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.
Dear Alison G, Thank you for taking the time to write such beautiful words about our establishment. We are so proud of our steaks, the chefs who them and the staff who deliver them. All come as one to give the ultimate Tomahawk experience. We very much look forward to your next visit with us. Warmest regards, Yann.
Food was amazing and staff were great! Will definitely go back!
Dear HayleyB, Thank you for the kind words, we look forward welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Arvine
Dear gerardm, Thank you for the 5 star review Best regards, Arvine
Excellent service, the food was excellent as always, and the staff are friendly and efficient.
Dear Guest, Thank you for complimenting the food and service. We look forward welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Arvine
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
Dear AlexanderP, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedbacks with us. I will make sure to pass it on to the entire team, especially Yann who will be delighted to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us. We look forward welcoming you guys back soon. Kind regards, Arvine
Great food and venue.
Dear guest, Thank you for the 5 star review Kind regards, Arvine
Great food, superb device from everyone we met in the restaurant, extremely nice staff. So so yummy food, will definitely be back, worth every cent.
Dear Anonymous, The pleasure was all ours! Thank you for your comments on our service and food, the two most important aspects for us. Worth every cent indeed. Looking forward to the next encounter! Kindest, Yann.
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.
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.
Nice location. Overall ok but not as good as I had expected. The details. The Martini was watered down, the tomahawk steak was good but not great for the signature menu item the house wine was excellent
Dear Anonymous, Really sad to hear we didn't meet your expectations. We will pass your comments to the bar team and make sure those cocktails are up to our standards. On the point with the Tomahawk, we will also pass your feedback on to the butcher and see what's going on. Hopefully you will give us another chance in the near future so we can change your mind on the matter! Thank you for your review. My warmest regards, Yann.
Our new favourite steakhouse. Food was excellent
Dear JaneM, When it comes to competing with other steakhouses, "favourite steakhouse" has to be a personal favourite quote of ours. Excellent for you to have spent your time reviewing us. Best, 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.
Dear RobertoG, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share your feedback with us. I have passed on the comments about the bread to our head chef and we hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards, Arvine
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. There was also a loud table of rowdy men nearby but i don't think this is a usual occurrence. Excellent atmosphere and professional staff.
Dear ef00, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedbacks with us and for complimenting the atmosphere and professional staff. We look forward to have you back with us in the near future. Kind regards, Arvine
Service and food was fantastic, it was quiet loud even though the restaurant wasn't full, was difficult to talk over the noise. Felt the pricing was a little high for the quality but the food was very good!
Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedbacks with us and for complimenting the food and service. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Best regards, Arvine
My brother and I had the BEST night at Tomahawk.
If you love steak then this is a MUST!
The service was fantastic, we were not rushed and dinner was incredible!
Thank you Tomahawk we will be back!
Dear AmiS, We were delighted to hear that you had a fantastic evening with us. We look forward welcoming you back in the near future. Best regards, Arvine
We were looking for a steakhouse while on vacation in Dublin and came across this steakhouse in the Temple bar area by accident...so glad we did! We started off with amazing cocktails (the Manhattan was particularly good!) The tomahawk steak for 2 was was amazing. Our companion had the Delmonico (rib-eye)...both the steaks were cooked perfectly per our specification. The appetizers and sides were amazing as well. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the panna cotta we had for dessert...one of the best panna cotta’s I have ever had! The service and staff overall were excellent, but would like to thank our waitress Hannah in particular who was very charming and made our experience even more memorable. This is a 5 star restaurant on par with the finest steakhouses in the world but with surprisingly reasonable prices.
Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to share your experience with us. We were glad that you enjoyed every aspect of Tomahawk and I will make sure to share the kind words to Hannah whom I'm sure will be delighted. We hope to welcome you back the next time you are in Dublin. Kind regards, Arvine
La comida y el servicio son excelentes, de lo mejor que probamos en Dublín, fuimos una vez y regresamos por lo bueno que es
Dear guest, Thank you for the 5 star review! Best regards, Arvine
Amazing staff, incredible food.
Best steak ever, prefect and friendly service from staff!!
Dear SteveA, We couldn't agree more with your words. Thank you for your praises and we wish to welcome you back here again. Warmest, Yann
The best meal we have had in ages, the best part of our trip to Dublin. We had Tomahawk for two and it was excellent. Our server (a young lady) was very professional, the place was very busy but our experience was extremely good.
Dear eeee, So great you enjoyed your experience with us and we're incredibly happy to know we were a highlight of your trip. All the best for the rest of your trip. Kindest, Yann.
Visited with my wife for a nice meal on a weekend in Dublin. Booked in advance and was glad that we did - though there was a little space early on it soon filled up. The space is lovely, tables not too close together, noise levels allowed easy conversation and the lighting was subdued but not as dark as some restaurants seem to be headed.
The food was excellent, steak cooked perfectly as you would expect at this price. Wine list was fine, but not extensive. Would definitely visit again when in town.
Dear Tony, Thank you for sharing your feedbacks with us. We were delighted that you enjoyed every aspect of Tomahawk and I will make sure to share it with the entire team. We look forward welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Arvine
First visit with my son on his birthday. Staff excellent, attentive but not overly.
Great place if you’re a meat eater!
Dear Carol H, Hoping it's not the last visit! Couldn't agree more with your complements. Please recommend and looking forward to next time. Kindest, Yann.
Dry aged steaks are the best and cooking them over wood fire grill gave them a great flavor. Staff very friendly and our group really enjoyed the dining experience.
Next time we are in Dublin we will be dining at Tomahawk. If you like great steaks this is a must do in Dublin.
Dear BrettC, Dry aged steaks truly are the best and we have plenty of them cooking on our Argentinian inspired fire grill here at Tomahawk. So glad you guys had a good time with us and we can't wait for the groups next visit. you all looked liked you were having a truly lovely time. My best regards, Yann.
Great food, well trained and courteous staff, not cheap but price reasonable for the meal and dining experience.

Very nice place in the heart of Dublin. The service is really good, the meat was excellent and the atmosphere was amazing too. We loved this restaurant. The price is pretty high, but it’s ok with the quality in general
Dear Anonymous, Couldn't agree more with your 5 star review. Service, Meat and Atmosphere is what we pride ourselves on and we're so glad you share the same thoughts. Prices can be steep, but we assure you the value is worth it! Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit. Yann.
We went for the Tomahawk steak for two it was well worth it, would definitely go back again.
