    Absolutely lovey spot! The view on the terrace is great of the city and the heaters keep you from being cold. The staff were so great, very accommodating and nice. The food was unreal and tasty. Great for special occasions can’t wait to come back!

    2nd time there. The venue is great but a few things took from our experience. We went for lunch, we expected it to be quiet and it was. Nice atmosphere and very clean and comfortable. We were asked about “special requests” prior to our visit. Our visit was a lunch for our wedding anniversary, we asked also for space for the buggy. There was no preparation done in advance and we could have walked in off the street. I don't see the need to book or answer special requests in the future as this isn’t considered. No issue with the service while there. Broader selection on the menu or even a change to the menu from the last time we were there would be nice. Not great value for money.

    We were a party of 4 and were seated in the main outdoor terrace on a wet night. There were plenty of heaters and the sturdy construction of the terrace kept us dry and cosy. Food and service were excellent.

    Further staff training needed service was disappointing. Waitress took 3 plates off table when 4th in our party was still eating main course. Felt like she was rushing to get our order throughout the meal perhaps kitchen was putting her under pressure. We have been to restaurant previously at an earlier time slot but never felt rushed. Very off putting.

    Such a pity that the food quality did not live up to four star. The hotel is absolutely divine with a fantastic ambience. The Huge potential of this hotel is there to see but unless food quality lives up to the quality of the hotel itself it will be a great pity.

    The setting is amazing, as is the décor throughout the hotel, but it was let down a bit by the food, and very much by the service! The waiting staff and what appeared to be the shift manager were disorganised and lacked the professionalism and service knowledge one expects at a venue such as The Dean. It also seems strange to request a smart-casual dress code from diners when the waiting staff are in ripped jeans and Vans trainers. Hopefully the staff improve to match the venue.

    Overall a disappointing experience. It was very noisy with pop music, had to ask for it to be turned down twice. Then a screaming alarm went off repeatedly,none of us knew what it was,no staff said anything until someone looked over the balcony and saw it was a car alarm. Parking is difficult or expensive. The menu is limited and overpriced for the quality of food. Nearly €30 for a fatty steak. The booking system is worse than a Ryanair flight, loads of rules, and very strict. Not a relaxing or even interesting venue. The staff were average, it felt as though they were inexperienced, but they were polite and attentive.

    Could not have had a better experience. The food was incredible, portion sizes were alot bigger than I was expecting (in a good way). Service was brilliant too. Love the fact that you can see the chefs from the tables, adds another level of involvement for the customer! All in all couldn't be happier.

    Fantastic food, easily one of the best in cork. Great service and fantastic setting outside on the rooftop. Only fault would be the price of drinks, there’s really no justification for a pint to be €7. Minor fault, overall fantastic restaurant recommend to all

    Dinner at Sophie's was excellent. The staff were terrific. We sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed the views. Cosy blankets were provided which was a nice touch though the heaters were sufficient. Coctails were made up to our tastes which was lovely. The staff were so accommodating. We really had an excellent night. Thank you
