We booked the restaurant but when we arrived we were given a squizzed table that the waitress had to ask us to get up to get by each time because theyd squeezed in a table for 8 that had no sense, finally we had to ask to move to the table at the stairs which wasn’t comfy but anything was better. It took them a long time to bring the wine, i think theyd forgotten because they had to ask us a couple of times what we had ordered. I ordered the Schnitzel, Mushroom & Potato main. This & 2 wines came to €30 which was more expensive than I expected as the dish was very small. The mushrooms at the bottom of the dish were cooked with broad beans and they were lovely, the potato (miniscule) was nice and the main component, the schnitzel, was completelt tastyless and dry and there was no sauce to help the situation.

I’m not a vegan but my dining partner is. I enjoyed my food immensely and didn’t miss having animal products at all. The servers were kind and prompt. If I were staying in Dublin longer I’d have tried to go again. Highly recommend.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Staff were great and gave us a free drink when the main was slow to come, which was very much appreciated. The food was absolutely stunning, really something to savour.

Went here with my daughter last Thursday night. As a vegan living in Mayo with limited to no options for eating out this was an absolute treat, vegan heaven! The food was outstanding, the staff friendly and a byob with a €6 corkage makes having wine with your dinner very affordable. Highly recommend to everyone. Next time I visit Dublin I will be hot footing it to Sova Good for my treat! Thank you very much!

One of my favourite places in Dublin. It’s hard to find a restaurant that has such great plant based food and looks after its customers to this standard. Let alone the very good prices. Would recommend to anyone to go. Make sure you book in ahead as it gets very busy :)

I absolutely love Sova Food Vegan Butcher. It's the best restaurant in Dublin, and it is vegan. I bring all my friends and family here and have become a loyal customer. The owner and staff are super friendly, the food is outstanding. You won't get better food anywhere else. The fact that it's vegan is such a bonus as both my husband and I are vegans - but even my carnivore friends love it. Once you taste their food you'll find yourself coming back again and again. The only thing I would change is the volume of the music - it always plays too loud for my taste and it's sometimes hard to have a conversation. However, when you ask they do turn it down, so it's all good.

Really lovely, inventive vegan food. Scallops, chicken, steak... it's a long time since I ordered anything like that! The scallops were cleverly made out of Portabella mushroom stalks! I had the seitan steak with peppercorn sauce – really tasty. The starters and mains were the highlight. The desserts were nice but not outstanding - maybe meringues made with aquafaba or a panna cotta would have added some panache in keeping with the other courses. All in all, good value (25 EU for three courses and BYO). I would recommend going here for a great vegan meal with friends.

The Service went above and beyond our expectations.The waiters give you your personal space without leaving you wondering if they even noticed you. It's a perfect balance. The FOOD is absolutely gorgeous.. I am not a Vegan by any means but I enjoy good food. Their Vegan Kebab is probably the best Kebab I've ever tasted. Their Smoothies are made from fresh fruits and Vegetables. My favourite is the Kale smoothie. (as sweet as Summer). You gotta check it out.

A great find on our visit to Dublin to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The food was wonderful, I actually couldn’t finish my three courses. The atmosphere was great, then only tiny downside was the noise. There’s no soft furnishings so the noise bounces around. Anyone with a slight hearing impediment would not be able to follow the conversation of their companion, I struggled at times. I would definitely return here though:)

Really lovely food and staff as always. They fitted in an extra seat as it was a special occasion for us. They had sold out of my first menu choice but made up a substitute which was gluten free on request. I couldn't actually finish as there was so much on the plate, but believe me I tried!!! I am vegan, my partner is veggie and his Dad is omnivore. Everyone was happy.

Absolutely delicious and incredibly good value considering the attention to detail and presentation of each dish! The Seitan Steak with Pepper Sauce is outstanding.

Would like if they had more of a drink selection apart from just wine but the food more than made up for that. Immediately booked in for next month!

I really, really enjoyed my time at Sova Vegan Butcher. The scallops were especially tasty. I also had the steak, and although it wasn't exactly to my taste the accompaniments were spot on. The staff were really friendly and nothing was a bother at all - especially as we were really late for our booking and they reassured us that it was fine. Love that it's BYOB too!

Amazingly creative and delicious vegan food. Great amount of choices for a great value and very friendly staff. The only thing I'd change is the music, probably for something a bit more mellow. 100% recommend and will come back, can't wait to try the rest of the dishes :)

Excellent vegan cuisine/comfortfood. Had the burger and the rosemary ‘chicken’ roast. Superflavourable! Every bite made me happy like a little kid. Beginning to end. Also mega friendly staff. Thanks for being passionated about the plantbased lifestyle! Obviously one visit wasnt enough so we got back the next day for brunch and had the apple pancakes which were BOMB (that coconut whipped cream you guys!) Would come here again and again aaaand again.

We were visiting for the weekend from Dallas, TX and ended up eating here twice. We have really excellent vegan food in Dallas (Spiral Diner is a treasure), and expect a lot from vegan restaurants. This place blew us away. The pulled pork sandwich is the best sandwich I have had anywhere. Wish we could take a few of them home to the states with us. Will definitely be back during our next Dublin visit.

The food was as always to die for. The choices for the lunch/ brunch menu are slightly different than the dinner ones but anything on that menu sounds mouth-watering good.

There seems to be less gluten-free options on the lunch selection though.

I'm waiting for those guys to produce a cook book.

All I can say is wow! Such delicious food. The loveliest most helpful staff who answered lots of questions for us. An impressive menu whether you are vegan, veggie or neither! The chia burger is a must and the meatballs (starter) were unbelievable. I was full until lunch the next day. Will definitely be back. BYOB is a bonus.
