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 to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Sophie's & highly recommend the woodfire pizzas! The staff were really friendly & the variety of food on the menu was brilliant. The cocktails & beers were lovely & overall the ambience of the restaurant was energetic. We will definitely re-visit here when back in Dubs again.

    The food was nice and the place is really pretty. We went for brunch and even though we booked it took about 10 mins to get us seated, we were acknowledge but said we had to wait for the manager to come back to seat us. We asked for a couple of more minutes to choose what we wanted and then after half-hour I had to go and ask if we could place our order. Was a nice place just a shame they were understaffed as it wasn't particularly busy, as over an hour to wait for brunch was a bit too long for us

    Very nice brunch, service could be improved though, it took more than 15 minutes to get served tap water and for someone to take the order. The coffee is not memorable but the food is great. Would love for the French toast to be crispier. The host was very welcoming and the second waitress too.

    We went to Sophie’s for breakfast and we’re very excited over the recommendations, but the service was messy, the poached eggs were bland, I asked for porridge and got it without the toppings or caramelized bananas, the waitress made a couple of jokes about me being a vegan (we spilled some water on the table by accident and said sorry and joked about even though it was Sunday morning we didn’t party last night so we were messy even when sober, and she said that she’d never expect a vegan to have a crazy night out anyway) and then when I asked for maple syrup instead of the honey she brought me and she removed the honey dish and put on the table a dirty, sticky maple syrup plastic bottle, after that she’d look funny at me sometimes. The restaurant was not crowded at all, it was 9am, so the accidents were not because the restaurant was crowded and they were busy. Out table was dirty, with red stains and sugar spilled on top, the floor looked very dirty too like they never mop it. I wouldn’t mind any of this if it wasn’t supposed to be a very high lever restaurant with amazing offerings but besides the view and the looks of the restaurant everything else was disappointing.

    I have not been in Sophie's since before the pandemic and I used to love the food and recommended it to everyone. We even had our school teachers end of year dinner there a few years back and the food was beautiful. Unfortunately I found the quality of menu & food very disappointing and it was really expensive too. The salad starter was nothing special, whereas a few years ago it was amazing and the pizza's were doughy and really not tasty, the pasta main course was nothing to write home about either. Im sorry to give you such negative feedback but honestly, I won't be returning.

    Sophie's @ The Dean DublinResponded 5 days agoHi there, sorry if you were disappointed with the food in any way. I really hope you'll give us another chance in the future to show you what we are really about. Thanks for the feedback, The Sophie's Team

    Lovely food. Sat on outdoor terrace - lovely. Service was okay but we had finished our starters and no sign of our drinks. We had to ask twice for them. Sundae was a let down - basically was just two scoops of ice cream and was expensive. Been here before and service was much better then. A few areas they need to improve on before I go back.

    It was our first time there and it left a brilliant impression on us . Decor is absolutely amazing!!. Busy for lunch time so we did have to wait a little longer but we understood. Everyone was working their hardest. Staff were incredibly friendly. Loved the little touches like refilling water glasses, ketchup with the chips . Food was outstanding. Best Mac and cheese I’ve ever had. Pizza was gorgeous!!. Dying to go back and see it at nighttime!.

    Sophie's has a great location and nice views. I've only had breakfast there, and the food has always been pretty good. The service is a bit rough. I tried calling multiple times to let them know we'd be a few minutes late, only to be put on hold indefinitely each time. I figured they were super busy, but when we arrived the place was empty! And yet I still had to wait by the door for 5 min before anyone would seat me. Good place for brunch during the week as there are not many places that offer it, but overall pretty average.

    Great food in a cool hotel. They could offer a separate ‘the works’ vegetarian/vegan breakfast on the menu to make it easier to order but when we requested a veggie version they were happy to make it and it was delicious.

    Disappointing experience overall. I’ve been many times before so this was a let down. Air conditioning broken in the restaurant and we were informed by the manager that it was reading 29degress inside. Very uncomfortable, not enjoyable. We got moved to outside seating then. Service was very poor.

    We had a 9pm reservation and arrived at 9.15pm, as that’s the grace period allowed. We were told the table was just paying the bill so told us to grab a drink at the bar. They kindly got us seats at the bar as I’m pregnant which was very kind. We didn’t get sat down until 9.40pm and were told immediately that we’d need to order as the kitchen was closing at 10pm. It felt frustrating that there was such a delay in getting us seated to then be rushed to order. I think if you have to wait for your table and encouraged to get a drink at the bar, you should be offered a drink on the house.

We were told our table needed before we had time to have desert/tea/coffee.
