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 had Sunday brunch in Sophie’s. Setting is lovely- nice and relaxed but with a bit of a buzz also. Menu read very well and prices seemed reasonable. I ordered the honey glazed chicken and was disappointed- if there was a glazing on the chicken it was minimal. It looked and tasted much the same as a regular roast chicken you’d buy in a hot counter- definitely no glazing! Lovely chips and coleslaw however and my husband loved his garlic herbed potatoe dish. Our desert didn’t live up to the menu either. Perhaps less embellishment on the menu if in fact the dish is simpler than it reads. Our waitress was lovely, so pleasant and very helpful- as was the host who met us on arrival. On a side note, the toilets need a good clean, the low lighting only hides so much :)

Would love to come back and try the pizzas and cocktails. Ours was a quick main course only, but tasty. We ordered two different pastas but the only difference really with the sauce was one meat and one non. Great atmosphere and views.

Niché en haut d'un immeuble, le lieu est vraiment très chouette, et la vue superbe. Notre serveuse a été efficace et super chaleureuse. Merci à elle! Nous y sommes allées pour mon anniversaire et j'ai pu y souffler une bougie. Merci pour votre accueil, nous en garderons un joli souvenir.

Poor service. Only be there 8 minutes before reserved time and there are many tables available. But was told to wait at the bar first. A nice dining place but will never go again due to the poor service!!!!!

Very good food, well marked for allergens. I am gluten-free and GF bread arrived before I even thought of asking for it! Attentive service. Wine on tap as well as bottled. Service was excellent. One little thing, I think the signage for Sophies which is upstairs in the Dean Hotel could be more clearly marked at street level. It was a little hard to find at night :)

The food is excellent with a wide choice of starters and mains to suit any taste. There's a great drinks menu too. When added to the location, setting and views afforded from this restaurant it makes it very hard to beat Sophies for a trendy but not pretentious place to go for a great meal.

Absolutely shocking value - the guts of €50 a head for a plate of third rate pasta and a cocktail. Even the cocktail was uninspired.
Service ok, location nice but noisy.
At the end of the day, would I go back? Never. I felt ripped off and cheated. For example, a pasta dish with seafood contained 2 mussel in its shell and one clam. In its shell.

One. Clam.

Felt like calling the Gardai after being mugged. It was a theft of a meal.

Met Monday before Christmas for brunch at 12 noon. Disappointed it was lunch menu . Busses problem was the terrible music being blasted out at 12 noon . Mellow Christmas music much more appropriate

Our waitress was so lovely, I didn’t get her name but she spoke Spanish. She was very friendly and chatted away to our baby.We then had a waiter who was also lovely and when he said unfortunately the table was booked for after us,he couldn’t have been nicer about it.overall a great Christmas atmosphere but it was the service that made it.

This was my second visit to Sophie's. Two of our party of four were running late. The staff were fantastic about the delay. The food was delicious, I opted for the buttermilk chicken, which was a very generous portion. I also had the chocolate raspberry delice, which was incredible. I would highly recommend Sophie's, it will not disappoint.
