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.
Food was excellent. Quiet as 10am on a Wednesday morning. Service was friendly and helpful. Nice views. Classy.
Perfect evening, attentive staff, beautiful food, great service, 5 stars.
Very loud, staff are great and always wondering how your meal is however they are very intimidating and due to the loud noise level you can’t really get that one on one chat you need to tell them how your food really is. My partner had a steak and it was perfect and I had a pizza, when picking up the pizza it would side off the base, quality poor but it tasted fine.
Price is ok, but I have had better value for money.
Really cool venue and fantastic food and service
Usually yes but not after this experience. Pizza came out half cooked and had to be sent back but nothing was taken off the bill. Waited for a long time for the dessert menu and eventually had to request it.
After viewing many online images of Sophies I had high hopes for lunch in a nice setting. The reality was quite a shabby and bland room, bland menu and noisy atmosphere. Staff were very friendly but were very rushed. Hygiene was hit or miss. My drinks menu was covered in food. The floor around us was dirty. Won't be back.
Are waitress was slow, and didn't understand us, kept forgetting our order, which was frustrating for us and for our waitress .
Hi Aoife, sorry for any confusion! Appreciate your feedback we'll certainly take it in board. The Sophie's Team
Comfortable restaurant with brasserie type food. Always reliable.
Thanks for the 4 stars! The Sophie's Team
Great food, service and location. The drinks were lovely. The staff were particularly friendly. Enjoyed the evening very much
2nd time at Sophie’s in 3 weeks. Impressive place still but the service is still disappointing, although our waiter tried to make up for the waitreess who brought us our food’s desperate attitude!!! My guest loved her food. I had ordered the blueberry pancakes and I got the plain ones!!! Grrrr.... I wanted a bit of orange butter on the side and was told by that waitress that I could only make one choice! Ok...never mind. The friendly waiter made no fuss and brought me the precious orange butter.
Anyway, I will come back hoping for better service, still.
Staff was not pleasant, felt more like a hindrance to them. Ask when booking was it for an occasion which I stated a birthday and it clearly had no relevance because it wasn’t mentioned on arrival or throughout brunch , this may have been to the staff being hungover
Myself and my husband celebrated our wedding g anniversary in Sophie’s on sat night and we couldn’t have gone to a better place. The service was excellent very attentive , the food was delicious and we didn’t have a long wait on between courses . Can’t wait to go back
Pleasantly surprised on our visit here. Food excellent with a very well balanced menu, not too big but good variety.
Service excellent. We ordered our starters and when finished then ordered main course - great idea, since we weren’t familiar with portion sizes.
Will definitely return.
Hi Dorothy, thank you so much for visiting & for taking the time to leave a lovely review. So nice to hear we will see you again! Look forward to it! The Sophie's Team
Great food and a lovely atmosphere. A must when visiting Dublin!
Hi Emma, thanks for the 5 stars!! The Sophie's Team
Menu is lovely but needs more vegetarian/vegan options
Staff are always top notch and the building is so beautiful
But the upholstery in the corner seats really needs to be updated they look filthy and it’s literally the only thing lacking
I’ll still go back though
Great location the view is great, service was a bit slow and food was average, but would come here again for the location and view
Nice view, good food, good ambiance, service good
Food was mediocre. The honey glazed pork chop was precooked to well done, then reheated to be served. Tough. Expensive. Butternut coconut soup was hot and good. Disco music blasting from speakers was annoying. Asked to have it turned down but it wasn't. One of the worst dining experiences in Dublin, unfortunately, since it was conveniently directly across from my hotel. Too many other places to have a delicious meal and not spend $40 for such mediocrity.
Hi there, thanks for visiting & for taking the time to share your thoughts. The Sophie's Team
As a family we really like Sophie’s - food is gorgeous, love the views and it’s a perfect venue to celebrate special occasions
The waitress seems to hurry us to finish our meal and she was very rude when saw we didnt pay tips because of it
The food is not enough and the quality is not so good in relationship with the price.
Hi Janina, thanks for visiting & for your feedback. All the best, The Sophie's Team
Beautiful food,brilliant menu with lots of choice. Will definitely be returning.
Hi Natalie, thanks so much for the great review! We'll look forward to seeing you again soon... The Sophie's Team
Went with my wife for our anniversary. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good and we both enjoyed our mains and desert.
A little noisy where we were seated but otherwise an enjoyable experience.
Hi George, thank you for choosing Sophie’s to celebrate your anniversary! That is fantastic to hear, so glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you again sometime, congratulations! The Sophie’s Team
We have been here at the end of every trip we take to Dublin. The rooftop view, food and service are fantastic. My filet was prepared perfectly! I couldn't ask for a better way to say goodbye to Dublin in this romantic setting.
Friends birthday,ordered food and hers came out cold,it was sent back and 20 mins later it was served and by then I was eating on my own and so was she.Bad experience
Hi Carol, so sorry to hear about your experience I hope that we might get to see you again some time to show you what we are really about. Thanks for visiting & for the feedback we will take it on board to help us improve. The Sophie’s Team
The service was fine. It’s trying to be like duck and waffle and failed miserably. I felt slightly sick half way through the meal which followed with being sick after. ( no alcohol was consumed ) if you wish to support bad cooking please go.
Scrumptious brunch. We all truly loved it. Fabulous room and views of the city. I was disappointed that there was no tea menu, and I was just casually offered 3 options. The green tea was made too strong (training issue), and I could not drink it. Still a very enjoyable experience. Friendly waiting staff but not great service. Attention to small details was lacking (example, the table cleaning spray was left seating on the sill of a magnificent window), I guess for convenience of use. Yet not a great standard for such place. A thank you on the way out, by the man standing at the desk, would have been nice too. However, I’m still planning to go back very soon with some friends.
Hi there, thank you so much for visiting & for taking the time to leave us a review. Hope to see you again in the future... The Sophie’s Team
Nice ambience although full of very young people. Starters great choice but main courses very limited and over priced unless you love pizza. Our table was close to the pizza oven and during the later part of the evening there was continuous clatter of cutlery which was being organised by staff and then after there was the scrubbing of the floor at the pizza oven both which was very annoying. There was also a bit of a smell of BO. Not a place to go if you are over 40!
Very over priced €17 for 3 bottles of water!!

There were 3 of us and each one of us loved the food. The meal was fantastic!
Hi there, thank you so much for visiting & for leaving us a fantastic review! See you again soon... The Sophie’s Team
As a hungover group of friends having brunch, we really appreciated the laid back atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. The heuvos rancheros hit the spot!
Hi Lucy, thank you so much for the great review, glad we could help you guys, hope see you soon =)! The Sophie's Team
Food and place were great! Service and staff were poor, very inattentive. Repeatedly had to ask to order drinks. Asked to switch to a different table and were advised not yet all tables remained empty.
Todo fue perfecto, mucho ruido durante la cena debido a una musica muy alta.
La cena muy mejorable, caro con respecto a la calidad de la comida.
Vistas expectaculares y buen ambiente para tomarte una copa despues cenar.
Cool trendy place with views of the city. A bit clamorous on Friday night for facilitating conversation.
Food was lovely, waiter very good, seating was shabby and dirty. Enjoyed Lunch.
Hi there, thanks for visiting. The Sophie’s Team
Dublin has few enough choices of Top Floor dining and this is as good as it gets. The light even on a dull day makes a difference to one's mood and the food matches the expectations. We loved the prawns and the crab salad and will be back to try more dishes. Noticed good 'booth' semi-circle dining tables fit for 4-9. Would enjoy a good cocktail next time, nice looking bar.
Hi there, thanks for visiting & reviewing! See you again soon... The Sophie’s Team
I celebrated my birth and I do loved there! I had a perfect time with my family and friends. Thanks million!

Our first day out since baby was born.I was dying to try this place.Food was average.Pizza options minimal and the glasses had lipstick stains as did our coffee mugs.Awful experience have to say.
Hi Laura- Thanks for sharing your feedback with us and apologies for the disappointing experience. This is certainly not the normal standards we deliver in Sophie's and will follow up with the team to ensure we improve. Thanks again, Dave O'
