On Fridays and Saturdays as the sun goes down, and the lights comes on, Sophie's comes alive. We pride ourselves on having one of the most welcoming late night bars in Dublin where all of our guests can enjoy the company of friends (old and new) in a relaxed, comfortable and genuine atmosphere. All of this happens from 11.30pm when our resident DJ comes on with an excellent mixture of the latest vibes. You won't want to go anywhere else.

Gorgeous restaurant, amazing ambiance and excellent food - attractive plating and really good quality, delicious food. We had a selection of drinks, starters, mains and sides and everything was perfect.

Service was amazing - we really appreciated Simon's attentiveness and professional but friendly demeanour.

Great location for a date, a quick drink after work and both intimate and group dinners. The round booths are lovely.

Went for dinner with the girlfriend and the food was very nice along with a great view at night from the fifth floor of the dean, the smoking area balcony had plenty of comfy seats and the area was all heated would recommend for any couples looking to go. The staff were friendly and on the ball even tho we were slow at deciding what to have and were often around filling up the water and checking on us. All three courses were lovely and although we didnt finish the desert it was due to being full over how it tasted. Would definitely recommend.

We ate in Sophies for my friends birthday.
Food was lovely, nice choices, exceptional service from the girl that attended to us, only sorry I can't recall her name.
We had 2 courses each, and drinks followed by our customary sambuca.
Sang Happy Birthday to Linda as we downed our sambucas.
Then our server arrived with a birthday dessert plate for the birthday girl.
We will definitely recommend Sophies to others and will return again.

7 of us I am speaking on behave of the other 6 too. starter was small three scallop is a bit too little could give a little bit more . My friend did found a piece of plastic in her crab salad which she feel the staff could have ask her would she like the same again or a different starter but I guess they were so busy they didn't have time to ask but anyway that was sort it we happy with the way was sort it . we all order steak 2 ask for med well and the rest all for med but to be very honest I don't think is the chef s fault one steak was well too cook beside that I think out of 7 steak only one steak was tender the rest is tough not a very good tender steak and no matter how you cook it is going to be tough steak . over all we had a good time service was good but food can be a lot better . we are happy with they did sort us out with no charge of one starter and one main course but we are not there to get free food we want to eat good food and have a good time .

This is my second time visiting Dublin and we were lucky to get a booking on Halloween night on this occasion. What a great experience with views of Dublin and fireworks across the city. We had a very attentive lady serving and Delicious food, chicken supreme was delightful with the most gorgeous tasting sauce. Without any prompt we were offered apologies for delayed service with consistent but not evasive checks that food was good and whether we needed more drink.

Overpriced for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is nice and cool, however they don’t have many veggie and vegan options. Food is not that tasty either.

Frequent haunt for brunch, myself and my partner have tried most things on the menu at this stage and have yet to find anything we don't like. His favourite is the steak, egg & chips and mine is a toss up between the honey glazed chicken and the french toast!

One of the best restaurants I have been to in Dublin. The food was unbelievable. The decor and atmosphere was great! Fantastic for small groups, to large group celebrations. The drinks menu would entice anyone to have a drink. The rooftop location gives the whole restaurant experience an exclusivity. From start to finish it was so luxurious. Highly highly recommend!

Really enjoyable meal. I was impressed before I even set foot inside the restaurant - the staff were very accommodating. We we're running late due to circumstances outside of our control; they were so understanding and flexible about this. The service when we got there was fabulous and the food was delicious. Great ambience, made for a very enjoyable night!

First time in Dublin and decided to go for breakfast. Food was good. Views over the city and the nearby mountains were great. However, service was very slow with few tables full. One patron near us stood at their table waiting for service. Perhaps one of the waitstaff called out. Finally received the bill and it was for another table, which further delayed leaving. Was still a good breakfast but we had to run to reach our next scheduled activity on time.
