Italian
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.

Fantastic lunch on Saturday. Food beautiful and very good service, staff lovely. A special treat for our friend who was celebrating her 60th birthday, especially the dessert with a birthday greeting written in chocolate on the plate! Would definitely go again.

AVOID! I had booked a table for me and my girlfriend and our family’s and we booked for a few drinks after having food prior. The manager was extremely rude as soon as we walked in and he complained about holding our table for us with it being “the best” table in the place even though there is a massive smashed window beside it and we were 15 minutes early. The manager then came up to us and complained about us not getting a main and demanded we get one as it’s their policy. This was not mentioned to us beforehand anywhere and he was again extremely rude in saying this. The night was ruined after that and we didn’t have a good experience at all. There was a gratuity and service charge on the bill which was not deserved whatsoever.Never giving this place business again.

I went here to celebrate a birthday and the staff were very polite and accommodating with all the requests we made, they even sent out a birthday plate to the table.

The food was delicious as we're the drinks and all for really good prices.

The outdoor area is beautifully decorated and warm even when it's cold outside.

Would definitely recommend sophies for any occasion.

A family gathering, we chose Sophie's for the ambience and because it suited our mixed age group. Food was delicious, portion sizes were perfect. Special favourites were the prawns, the fillet steak, the parmesan fries. Wines were very nice too, as were the cocktails to start. Service was outstanding- shout out to Nikki who was fantastic, and really made our evening. Her attention to detail (refilling water glasses, being on hand when we wanted to order more drinks, taking a family photo for us etc etc) was absolutely top class.

Service seemed very rushed despite not being informed table was only available for two hours

Food generally very nice. Although ice cream sundae was very disappointing being three scoops of vanilla ice cream in a bowl reminiscent of hotel desert of the 1980’s

Not sure I’d feel comfortable recommending Sophie’s to friends n family

Definitely a different experience to previous visit
