Sophie's @ The Dean Dublin
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.
I was recently at Sophie’s for brunch. The food was amazing on their brunch menu, everyone was very happy, could possibly had more vegetarian or vegan options. Staff we’re lovely and very accommodating. It was a friends baby shower and the staff surprised her with a candle and some ice cream after our meal, which was a lovely touch. Unfortunately I had booked for 2.30pm and was not informed that the kitchen closes on a Sunday at 3pm so we were rushed by staff to order our food. Overall a lovely experience with amazing views of the city.
Hi there, so happy you enjoyed the brunch at Sophie's & that you had a nice time here with us celebrating you friends baby shower. Hope we get to see you again in the future, The Sophie's Team
It's a lovely daytime hangout with loads of natural light and a hell of a view. Me and my buddies absolutely enjoyed the vibe, delicious food and friendly service.
Hi there, thank you so much for visiting Sophie's & for taking the time to leave us a lovely review! So happy you & your friends enjoyed the vibe, the food & the service, that's everything we aim for here great to hear we are hitting our mark. Hope we get to see you again soon! The Sophie's Team
Nice and friendly place to have brunch. Good GinTonic at the terrace!
Hi there, thanks for the nice review! See you again soon, The Sophie's Team
Incredibly fast and very welcoming service.
Fantastic food and great ambience.
Hey Conor, thanks for the great review! See you again soon... The Sophie's Team
I'm a regular lunchtime user and have no hesitation in giving Sophie's a very high recommendation. The staff are great. The food is excellent and is quickly prepared and served, which is important for business lunch when time is at a premium. The ambience and views from this stunning restaurant count among the best in Dublin. Don't use the swing unless you've read the instructions first!
Hi Tony, thank you so much for the amazing review really means a lot to us! So great when you hear this from a regular cause it means we keep hitting the mark we're aiming for. Thanks again, look forward to welcoming you back, The Sophie's Team
We booked a table for dinner and drinks and we shared main starters and pizzas and purchased multiple drinks. The waitress came over to us numerous times and told us that we were not welcome there as we had not ordered a main course each. If this was the case then it should have been put in the terms of the booking on open table when I made the booking. The waitress really made us feel very unwelcome and uncomfortable. We would have stayed and ordered more drinks and food but we decided to leave due to the unpleasant atmosphere created by the staff.
Extremely Disappointing .
Arrived at 5 : 30 pm , the restaurant looked to be at about 10% capacity . We asked could we sit at one of the 10 empty booths along the wall . We were told no as they are for parties of 3 more and they were all reserved anyway. When we left at 7pm eight of the ten booths were still empty . Another couple who arrived after us made the same request and got the same answer so 2 bookings have to sit in seats they don't like while looking at seats they would like remaining empty for the whole time they are there. Not the end of the world at least the dinner should be good no matter where your sitting.
We ordered starters and a main course of steak. The waitress was rude and argumentive when my partner asked for it to be cooked well done. She was told if she wanted it well done it could be very tough and hard to eat.
I interjected and told her it was to be cooked well done . Her response to me in a somewhat abrupt manner was " well I'm just letting you know it could be too tough ". I think its surreal your asked how you like it cooked only for the waitress to absolve the restaurant in advance of the responsibility that it might be inedible.
The starter of crispy prawns were not crispy but soggy . My Fillet of beef ordered medium came medium rare which I could have gotten over but for the fact it wasn't hot . As it was barely warm the rawness of the meat did not taste very nice.
2 starters , 2 mains , 4 drinks E124
A dinner that wasn't nice served by someone who wasn't friendly or helpful and an evening wasted.
Informed the person in charge we were not happy and it was our first and last visit .
( The bread was nice and the Barman was friendly )
Service was spotty but the views are fabulous and the food excellent.
We waited 40 minutes for the food, that was really overrated ...
Very pleasant staff, good choices on the menu, the ambience was perfect for a Sunday afternoon chilled yet lively. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
The best restaurant in Dublin, the food, the attention and the ambient was wonderful.
Excellent evening, great food, service and atmosphere. Looking forward to the next visit!
We were running late due to traffic and they kindly still had our table. We did miss the lunch menu, but the pizza was still very good. Drinks and staff, both great.
Very enjoyable experience. Great food, setting and service and the swing wasn't too bad either :)
The environment is lovely, really beautiful views of Dublin. The staff are great very very friendly and helpful but the food was delayed for over an hour which was a long wait between starter and main.
Definitely not value for money. Decor poor compared to photographs. Food was ok but nothing special. Staff were not that friendly or welcoming. Overall disappointing
Amazing views and beautiful restaurant. The drinks were so good. The only really negative is the staff. I read about how the waiters were not very friendly on Yelp. And that was true, if they could work on that , that was pretty much the only negative. Foods was great. My steak was a little over cooked for medium well. But overall I would come back .
Hi there, thanks for visiting & for taking the time out to leave a review. Sorry to hear you were a little let down by the staff friendliness have to say we never really hear that compliant, the guys here are normally so sound. Hope that we get the chance some time in the future to show you what we are really about. The Sophie's Team
Wonderful service and food. Lovely atmosphere and setting. We will definitely be back!!

Hi John, thanks for the brilliant review! Really appreciate it. Look forward to seeing you again in the future, The Sophie's Team
Really enjoyed our meal at Sophie's. Amazing view, delicious food and really great service. The bar is lovely and on a Friday night, perhaps a touch too loud for those tables booked later on, might be fairer on them to start the DJ set later. The DJ kept walking between our table and the windows which was a bit annoying and felt like he was intruding a bit on our night, but minor negative, in a very positive evening.
Hi there, thank you for visiting with us & for taking the time to leave us a nice review. I'll mention it to the guys here about the DJ times thanks for the feedback on it. Glad you enjoyed everything else, hope we get to see you again in the future, The Sophie's Team
We loved the steak but the view from the rooftop is not that great (but that’s not your fault). Overall it was a good experience and want to come back!
Hi there, thanks so much for visiting & for the lovely review. Look forward to welcoming you back to Sophie's, The Sophie's Team
The view is alright. The food was so-so when i was there. Seafood pasta wasn’t al-dente and seafood quality was average considering the price. My dad had a pizza and the temperature could be hotter. It can be a good place for drinks but i’m mot sure about the food.
Food and Views were excellent!. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Good night
Hi Eoin, thanks so much for the lovely review so glad you enjoyed it! See you again soon, Wayne
We arrived a little before the lunch hour rush so we were seated quickly at a table. The table wobbled considerably, but the waitress helped by shoving a wine cork under it to make it more stable. The soup I had was delicious. The pasta was good, but the mushroom risotto seemed like it could of been cooked a little longer and been more flavorful. The cappuccino and espresso we had were very delicious as well. The restaurant filled up over the lunch hour and became pretty loud, but it did have a view of the city of Dublin that was neat to see.
Fabulous food ,atmosphere & staff......planning the next visit already:)
Hi there, thank you so much for the great review! Amazing to hear you are planning another visit that means a lot to us, it really does. Looking forward to welcoming you back, The Sophie's Team
Great venue, great service, great food. Will definitely be back
Hi Sarah, thanks for the great review, look forward to seeing you again soon! The Sophie's Team
I found your menu excellent as a recently diagnosed coeliac it’s been a struggle to find places with clear and concise allergen details
Hi Taryn, so happy we could accommodate your dietary requirements, the guys in our kitchen really are dedicated to making sure we can look after everybody who comes to Sophie's. Thank you so much for visiting Sophie's, hope we see you again sometime. The Sophie's Team
We had a fantastic brunch with 3 friends from Glasgow. Great views, very friendly service and the food was excellent. I would have liked there to be an option to omit or add to parts of the fry and our beans never arrived but they are very small things that in now way took away from a great dining experience. We look forward to a return visit soon.
Hi there, thanks for coming in for brunch with us in Sophie's sorry about your missing beans!! Really glad you enjoyed it though we look forward to welcoming you back. The Sophie's Team
The food was delicious, the service was great. Overall a really great night out, thank you Sophie’s!
