Steakhouse
Step out of the bustling cobblestone streets of Temple Bar and down the stairs to Tomahawk Steakhouse where beautiful windows allow in light from street level. This is an intimate and unique dining setting – and our steaks are the star of the show.

We have spent months researching where to source the best steaks from around the world and the results of that exploration is there is no better beef than Irish and we are proud to say that we serve only the market-best at Tomahawk.

Tomahawk has 80 delightful seats for you and your party to choose from. We have comfy corners matched with matte timber tables adorned with leather seats, where diners can enjoy their delicious meals under the ambient street lighting that pours in from above. Or you can choose to perch comfortably along the gorgeous timber dining bar set around our open kitchen and watch the theatre of a professional kitchen at work in front of you.

The restaurant is in a basement. I would only recommend for late evening dining. When we were there it was full and very noisy. Lots of tourists. Tables are quite small for the dining options they have (shared steaks etc.)
The food was good. I had the Ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. Onion rings and broccoli also very good.
The wine selection is not very good and particularly in the affordable section the wine on the list is not attractive.
The service was very attentive. There were too few waiters for the size of the restaurant. So service was reactive of course.
Overall a nice restaurant to go for dinner during the week

Beautiful ambience at this restaurant, the staff very friendly and you get shown and talked through the different steaks available which is nice, all are matured in house and that really comes through in the flavour. We chose the tomahawk steak to share and it didn't disappoint. Cooked perfectly medium rare (slightly rarer on the thickest parts, but this was not a problem as it was so delicious) it was accompanied with a thick layer of fine crisply fried onions and we had the house salad and hand cut fries. Would highly recommend, the price good for the food and drink we had and would eat there again if I come back to Dublin. I would recommend booking as it seems very popular.

We were very well looked after from start to finish. The host Yann, knew us from the company and was more than accommodating and friendly. Waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. The wait time was a little more than I might have expected but understandable given the nature of the restaurant and what we ordered. The selection of wine was great and reasonably priced aswell. Ambience was lovely, music not intrusive at all. Overall it was the perfect treat for ourselves. We'll be back again

Positives: Food was great. Nice ambiance. Delicious whiskey sour cocktail.
Negatives: It was quite surprising to us that when we wanted to start with ordering appetisers, the waiter said she had to take all the orders together including the mains because the kitchen was too busy. For a restaurant at this price range this is not acceptable. The waiter was polite but a bit too pushy to get us more drinks and still forgot to bring the one beer I ordered.

Dear GokhanY, Thank you for review. With quality 28 day aged meat, cooked in a three way process (smoking, grilling and resting respectively), by the time you finish with your starters, there's not much wait for the steak as opposed to a long wait. I'm sorry this is not to your preference and maybe there was a lost in translation moment, but it's a "tried and tested method" which works to keep service smooth. I hope you understand and can return for more delicious steak! My kindest regards Yann.

Don't underestimate the steak portion. I had the Delmonico. To be honest, I didn't pay attention to the size, but I struggled to finish the main. Very delicious, I asked for med well, they obliged. In hindsight,medium would have been better. Lovely butternut squash open ravioli to start. Nice chips, tomato sauce (heathen that I am), all washed down with a lovely bottle of Waterford Estate Cabernet. Would certainly return. Friendly, courteous service, nice vibe.

Responded on 28 September 2019

Dear ajerseybear, Yes we like our steak portions big here at Tomahawk. We usually like to recommend you undercook your steak as it's been aged for 28 days, so it practically melts in your mouth. Beautiful choice of Cabernet Sauvignon to match a fatty rib-eye. It was a real pleasure to welcome you into our establishment and we look forward to your return. My kindest regards, Yann.

Such a great spot specially for meat, they explain you all about the cuts shown in the menu. Food is all great there, but when I asked for some bread along the meat they just provided "butter bread". They might offer a wider variety of bread. Everything else was really good, good attention and nice environment.

Delicious food and attentive staff however i did not like being seated on a corner table where myself and my partner were sat adjacent to each other instead of opposite making it harder to have a conversation. There was also a loud table of rowdy men nearby but i don't think this is a usual occurrence. Excellent atmosphere and professional staff.

We were looking for a steakhouse while on vacation in Dublin and came across this steakhouse in the Temple bar area by accident...so glad we did! We started off with amazing cocktails (the Manhattan was particularly good!) The tomahawk steak for 2 was was amazing. Our companion had the Delmonico (rib-eye)...both the steaks were cooked perfectly per our specification. The appetizers and sides were amazing as well. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the panna cotta we had for dessert...one of the best panna cotta’s I have ever had! The service and staff overall were excellent, but would like to thank our waitress Hannah in particular who was very charming and made our experience even more memorable. This is a 5 star restaurant on par with the finest steakhouses in the world but with surprisingly reasonable prices.

Visited with my wife for a nice meal on a weekend in Dublin. Booked in advance and was glad that we did - though there was a little space early on it soon filled up. The space is lovely, tables not too close together, noise levels allowed easy conversation and the lighting was subdued but not as dark as some restaurants seem to be headed.
The food was excellent, steak cooked perfectly as you would expect at this price. Wine list was fine, but not extensive. Would definitely visit again when in town.

Dry aged steaks are the best and cooking them over wood fire grill gave them a great flavor. Staff very friendly and our group really enjoyed the dining experience.
