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.

Lovely restaurant with the most amazing steaks, perfectly cooked. A tip for the ladies would be to share a steak as not only are they very well cooked they are enormous and I was, for the first time, defeated as I could not fit in another morsel!

The wine menu had limited descriptions of the wine which made it hard to choose especially when our server did not seem to be educated in recommending the right wine so it would be nice to either see a better wine menu or better trained servers in this area.

Of all the places you can have a steak in Dublin this is the best! The service is truly top of the line and the food is worth a drive to get there! What looks like a 1930's New York whiskey bar, nestled on the edges of Temple Bar. A must for steak lovers, and food lovers a like.

Great steaks - plenty of choice of cuts and the meat was of real quality. Staff knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Bit low on atmosphere but it was a Tuesday night that we visited.

We enjoyed our meal in Tomahawk as a party of 6. The food was very good. We were disappointed at the end to see we were charged €20 for water that was being refilled into a bottle by staff without knowing it was being added to our bill. Overall a good experience otherwise.

Good restaurant, nice ambience, staff are fantastic, I found the smoky flavor from the charcoal burning grill a little overpowering and took away from the quality of the steaks. Also, the Bearnaise that came with my steak was very pretty to look at but didn't really taste of anything. Overall a very good night and I would be happy to return but there are some basic issues I would expect to be fixed for the price you are paying.

The food, drinks, and service were all excellent. However, the only issue was the ambient temperature in the restaurant. It was hot. The staff informed us that the AC was on the coolest setting. Overall, I was very happy with my experience and I will definitely return.

Had a late lunch/early dinner last Sunday. My wife and I went there for the signature dish: the Tomahawk steak to share. It was delicious, beautiful presented and well accompanied by sides. We share also a recommended started and was delicious as well. We share also a bottle of good Italian wine and a great dessert. A stunning experience, we do really recommend them and we look forward to come back to Dublin to enjoy another superb meal over there.

Hubby and I met a fellow Aussie traveller there for a last hurrah!
Service was exceptional. Wine was delicious and our meal was lovely. Hubby and I shared the Tomahawk for 2. Beautiful cut of meat, great flavour but just slightly a bit underdone for us., understandably so as it was a large cut but still very delicious. Broccoli and the cauliflower accompaniments were cooked very well with lovely flavours.

Enjoyed the whole evening. Just felt we were waiting a long time between starter and main. We ordered the tomahawk. Felt it would be a while to cook. But we could see it sitting under the heat. We were waiting I'd say close to 45 minutes or more between courses. But otherwise absolutely no issues. Would recommend to anyone if they love steak.

Had the pleasure of eating here with my husband & daughter for a special birthday dinner and I really couldn’t say enough about the place! The ambience, the decor, the friendly vibrant staff all set the scene for what was the nicest steak/meal I have EVER eaten!! It certainly won’t be that cheapest place you’ll ever eat but worth every penny for a special occasion! I’ll be going back!

2 scallops for starter not acceptable needs to be at least 3.
