Italian
A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.

Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.

Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.

Head out to our Rooftop Terrace, where we have sun loungers when it’s hot, blankets and heaters when it’s not.

Style over substance - Sophie's is not. It gives everything you want from a sleek, stylish and modern dining experience - beautiful scenery and top-notch food. What I most like about Sophie's is the unpretentious menu - of course, you can have scallops to start and a pepperoni pizza finished with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce! Why not? More places in Dublin should be like Sophie's.

I would recommend as long as you know it may be very noisy, and your fellow diners not very pleasant. We were stuck next to a loud group in holiday mode and couldn't hear each other speak from across our table, but maybe that's just the crowd that stay on Harcourt St in general?

Looked forward to dining out on the rooftop as well but it was covered. Might as well have been inside.

Eggs benedict with salmon and mocha were delish. The girl serving us was lovely as well. Well done to staff!

The rooftop dining room is fantastic, the food was delicious and the service was friendly and on the ball. Not cheap, but felt like good value for money for a reasonably fancy meal out. The atmosphere is buzzy rather than fussy or formal.
Two of our group were visiting from Spain and they especially appreciated the 360 degree views over the city (so many cranes!), but the locals were impressed too.

The food was amazing and so was the scenery. Our waitress was fairly rude and kept coming back to the table without asking for our drink order, food order, dessert order, or if we needed anything else. The overall dinner took roughly 3 hours.....

We were there for my 40th birthday and it really was the perfect place to celebrate, the views and the atmosphere were fabulous.. and the cocktails were just delicious!! The food was just amazing,I have to give the fillet steak and the tirimasu a special mention, they are up there with the best I have ever eaten. A little on the pricey side but well worth it for a special occasion.

What a fabulous dining experience! We booked this as a pre-brunch before seeing Riverdance in the Gaiety! My mum and her friend both in their 60s, thought the steak was perfectly cooked and ate every morcil on the plate! My sister and I both had the beef burger and as a person who isn’t a huge meat lover, I can safely say, it was simple delightful! The wine, the atmosphere, the decor and view were amazing! I would highly recommend Sophie’s for brunch! Wow!

My fiancé and I spent a wonderful evening at Sophie’s. The atmosphere was lovely, and excited without being rowdy. The maître d'
set the tone at the door with a warm and welcoming smile; he seemed right at home (and maybe a little high? :)) and made us feel exactly the same way. Our waitress was very friendly and after taking a little while to notice our arrival (for which she was very apologetic) seemed to always be there when we needed her. I would dearly love to give the food 4/5 stars as the flavors were brilliant, unfortunately the steaks we ordered rare arrived medium well done, hence the 3.

We would definitely go back.
