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.

We really enjoyed our visit to Sophie's. The food was excellent. The service and staff were very good. the atmosphere and views were beautiful.
One comment would be that that it was a little chilly. A small breeze coming from the windows behind me.

We got there for our reservation at 3 o clock just to be told that the kitchen was closed and the only food available was pizza. There was no apologies or explanations as to why we were allowed to book lunch for that time when food wasn’t available. We then decided to stay for a cocktail anyway and sat at our table when we were told if we wanted drinks to go get them at the bar ourselves, so we left. We were then stuck trying to find somewhere to take us for lunch before the event were were going to which turned out to be very difficult. We were very disappointed to say the least.

Hi there, sorry for any confusion our last reservation time is 2:30 pm which was the time that was booked. Unfortunately the kitchen does close at 3 pm to turnaround for dinner service so when you arrived at 3:10 pm the only food offering was pizzas. Warm regards, The Sophie's Team

An sich ein schönes Restaurant. Wir waren auf einem Sonntag Abend dort und es war doch ziemlich laut. Der Service war in Ordnung, aber auch nicht mehr, genauso wie die Qualität der Speisen.

Food was decent (would highly recommend the risotto to start 👌🏽). The vibe was certainly good, and the view wasn't too shabby. The only issue was that we waited an hour for our main meals, however to her credit, our designated waitress kept us updated throughout and was kind enough to offer our cocktails free of charge. Overall, a lovely night out and would recommend!

Beautiful starter (crab salad) and main course (hake) but any chance you could even put one dessert on the menu which is gluten-free??? Coeliacs need sugar too!!!

My 2nd dining experience at this restaurant. Second time wasnt as hppf as the first so a bit disappointed.
Service wasnt good this time. Had to ask for drinks way after the food was served and again had to ask for the desserts after the coffees were served.

Food was awful.. inedible. Was not told when booking our table for 2.30 that service stopped at 3pm. The restaurant looked dirty.. staff ok. We were rushed to order then rushed to pay. Never ever experienced such a place. Awful. We all walked away hungry. How people are expected to pay for such crap is unreal.

Felt the restaurant was a bit grubby. The tiles under the bar were dirty and the table sticky. We had to ask for a drink and then saw them sitting on the bar for 10 mins. The barman threw some of the drink away and topped it up again. We were hoping for more than brunch as it was a special occossion. They did write a message with dessert which was nice

A fantastic place either for food or just drinks on the rooftop. Only thing it's missing is some framed history of the Maria Bailey case beside the swings.

The venue is lovely both inside and with great views. The food is pretty bad though and service mixed. I'd recommend going for drinks after a dinner somewhere else.

The food was amazing - the food was pricey but I was kind of expecting it. However , the lady who serviced our table wasn’t too nice. The way she talked was a bit rude and with no smile on her face at all. But overall I liked the place a lot

Lovely setting and atmosphere, however, the options for coeliac/ gluten free people are terrible. One of the worst restaurants for dietary needs I've went to in Dublin. Very disappointing for me, but my friend loved her food.

Lovely venue. I was surprised to receive a call 2 hours before I was due to attend, ref. needing our table
at 14.00. When asked if we wanted dessert, I asked if the table was still needed ( the restaurant was not that busy at the time) & was told "Not at all "!? The waitress was lovely, she was aware, it was my friend's birthday & arrived with our dessert & a candle - Happy Birthday was written on the plate. A nice touch. Thank you so much !
