Have been there a few times, excellent food, attentive and friendly staff, good ambiance ( though a little bit noisy on most recent visit). It's not cheap, rather it's for that special occasion.

As fantastic as the food was, the staff were the best I’ve experienced in Dublin. Every single person we encountered was a credit to the restaurant. They couldn’t have been more professional or helpful.
The food was wonderful- starters to dessert.
The air con was up a bit high however after mentioning it to our waiter an adjustment was made. Once again an attentive staff.

Second time here and not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service even better. It's not cheap but well worth the money, especially for a special occasion. Really nice atmosphere and you can tell they place a huge emphasis on customer service. The staff were all very friendly and everything worked like clockwork. Definitely be back.

Excellent choice of dishes on a la carte menu. Both mains were delicious. And the desserts were surprisingly filling.
Would have been nice to have some decaffeinated tea instead of fruit tea. The service from Ante and colleagues was timely and discreet.

A very nice restaurant with excellent service.
Antonio was very attentive and recommended a wonderful bottle of Montrachet to accompany our meal.
We were made to feel comfortable and relaxed by the manager as well.
A definite do over.

Being greeted for our 9:45 pm reservation, we were told to hurry and order because the kitchen was closing. Such a welcome. Fortunately, the waiter said there was no rush and we never felt we were on a time limit after that. The mussels and the Irish crab gnocchi were very good. Dublin Bay prawns were sweet and delicious once you wiped off the runny pink mayonnaise. Enjoyed the lemon tart dessert.

Our first trip to Dublin and by far the best restaurant we chose for an evening meal was Sole Seafood and Grill. Elegant surroundings and attentive service, accompanied by some delicious and imaginative food. The Seafood Chowder was outstanding.

Simply perfect!
Interior is luxurious but cosy as well, with many different seating options.
All people working for this restaurant are highly professionell.
Service is friendly, very effective but unobstrusive.
Food is absolutely great. We had Oyster, Chowder, Tartar and Lobster and all those dishes
were prepared to perfection. Best Quality Ingredients, expertly seasoned, prepared for easy enjoyment
(i never had a lobster prpred this way).
Excellent selection of wines at reasonable prices.
I am 59 years old and as a pilot i am going to restaurants very often, probably in more than 1000 different restaurants all over the world (including michelin star places )over the last 35 years.
SOLE was one of the best restaurants ever !!!

Our waiter was excellent as was our food. While I expected the seafood to be of a high standard, I was surprised how good the deserts were. The only aspect of our night that was negative was the noise level. It was very loud. However this didn’t ruin our evening and we will be back in the future.

A real disappointment a it was recommended by friends. Could have been an off night. The wine list was uninteresting and over priced. Tuna tartare hohum, mussels uninspiring, bass ok, john dory tough and over cooked. Deserts could have had more taste and been smaller. The only thing that was truly good was the Caesar salad.

The food was delicious and the service impeccable! This New Yorker would return as the fish was very fresh, well prepared and beautifully presented. I loved the Dover Sole. I just had it in Thomas Keller’s restaurant and this was so much better. Definitely would recommend!!

Atmosfera molto bella ed elegante.
Piatti particolari e raffinati.
In due abbiamo preso come starters chowder e la capesante. A seguire la sea tower per due persone da 75€.
Tutto molto buono, porzioni non esagerate, il servizio professionale.
Prezzo corretto (126€) aggiungendo due calici di vino bianco e l’acqua.
Faccio presente che al conto va aggiunta la tips obbligatoria di almeno il 10% al momento del pagamento.
Per il resto enjoy.
