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.

Really enjoyed our meal at Tomahawks. The portions are really good size and the steaks are amazing. I love the fact that the waitress brought out the different options to us prior to us ordering and went through everything with us. Would definitely go back :)

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.

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.

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.

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.
