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 to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    Food was great , nice portion and lots of varieties. The let down of the evening was that we booked and reserved for the terrace and somehow we got bumped inside saying that was a system mistake and nothing was rectify for us or give us any discounts or anything to compensate on this.

    Good atmosphere and good food but the service leaves something to be desired. We were charged for the substitute of a dish they didn't have (5 euros) and the dessert ordered was not the one we wanted...

    We have been to Sophie’s on a number of occasions, I have recommended it to family and friends. However, this time I was disappointed, the service was slow, menue not great, tables were sticky. The music was repetitive & loud.

    Sophie's @ The Dean DublinResponded 4 days agoHi there, sorry if you were disappointed with anything. We are getting our tables re-varnished as they were done incorrectly last time and that why they are sticky, it's very annoying. We are also getting new playlists made up so hopefully it won't be repetitive now! That's a couple of things we are looking at doing over the next little while. I hope we get to see you again soon...

    + Friendly and honest staff who provided very good service + Location is great. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset + Visited twice now and enjoyed it very much - Food and drinks are a bit overprized (not the worst here in Dublin), but quality is good.

    I book a table to celebrate my wife birthday`s asking to be seated in a nice place, the receptionist just came over and guided us to a table apparently dirty in middle of the venue. once we were ready to order, my wife asked for a starter in menu but they didn't have that plate, she asked for another and it was the same. for the main she asked for a plate and after few minutes the waiters came back apologising because that plate was unavailable. she has to order a gnocchi that came horrible taste. its destroyed the night that supposed to be a celebration. About my 80oz beef.. that was salty.. specially after see my wife getting bored and upset about the quality of the restaurant. the staff that served us I'm really happy with her. she tried to keep us comfortable despite the problems

    A very inhospitable place for families, and on the face of, openly so. There is no children’s menu and when we inquired about one, we were abruptly told to “just pick some bits from the sides”. Also, no baby changing facilities. We arrived for our booking at 12n for my wife’s birthday brunch and were left for half an hour before our order was taken and a further 50 minutes before we had food in front of us. This is inexucasble at the best of times, but when you have two children under 5, even more so. When the food arrived it was good, but certainly not worth the hour and 20 minutes wait time. This was acknowkedged by the manager and he apologised and reduced our bill by 10%. However, it did all seem very normal that this was happening. The message we received loud and clear, “if you’re coming again, get a babysitter!”. We won’t be in a hurry back.

    There’s only one veggie option for starter and main, which could be improved. The staff did make changes some modifications to dish’s to make them vegetarian which was great. The staff were very helpful and friendly and there was a lovely buzzy atmosphere in the restaurant

    A really great place for food and atmosphere. It’s obviously difficult to rate the value as 5 star given it’s a little more expensive than other places, but in terms of the quality of food, atmosphere and service, it’s worth spending the little extra for a whole lot more. Cocktails made right!!

    Went with a couple of friends on the weekend for brunch. My first time there and it won’t be my last! The iconic swings guide you into the very open planned restaurant. Ambience is amazing, staff were courteous, the food was amazing and the cocktails were scrumptious. Can’t fault the place one bit. If they did a set price bottomless brunch, I’d probably be there every week!

    I booked a table for 4 for myself and my 3 friends to have food and drinks, we tried to order and was told we aren’t ordering enough food for what the table was booked for which ment we had to order more food on the spot. Never have experienced this in a restaurant place before! Wrong order arrived 45 mins later with the extra pizza we had to order was actually incorrect and we had been given chips that the table beside us ordered. We had been approached so many times to see if the plates could be taken more then normal and approached with a card machine 3 times! We had been informed at this stage that we would have to finish up soon that the table was booked again in a half hour. No other table was approached as much and I’m sure the crowed on either side of us who had a different waiter wasn’t informed to leave soon, while they each arrived the same time as us. I tried this place before and it was beautiful so I had highly recommended it to my friends but unfortunately the service style and approach let it down massively. Won’t be returning unfortunately.

    I cannot fault the staff in Sophie’s. Whatever we were looking for it wasn’t an issue. From the moment we arrived it was some welcoming and friendly. This was a special occasion for my partner who was promoted in work and they produced two beautiful glasses of Prosecco for us both as a congratulations.! Beautiful touch. The food was first class and, as a dessert person, the caramel cheesecake was outstanding. We’ll both be back again as it really was a wonderful experience. Bravo to all.

    My friends chair split at the side and broke from under her, leaving her fall to the floor. She was mortified. Whilst the waitress serving our table did her best to look after us further to this, the attention and apology we should have received from management failed to exist. We were quite taken aback by this. We were there for a special occasion and this lack of appropriate apology was quite upsetting and threw a shadow on our special occasion.

    Sophie's @ The Dean DublinResponded 4 days agoHi there, I was the manager on duty and was speaking to your friend for several minutes when the incident occurred and when you were all leaving, I also sent over three rounds of drinks and applied a discount to your bill and I took off her food. I understand your friends mortification and felt bad for her, her embarrassment was probably amplified by the fact that several of your party seemed to find the incident very amusing when I watched back the CCTV. Regards, Sophie's MGMT

    Beautiful spot - delicious food and good atmosphere. We ate on the terrace and it was a good temperature with the heaters on. The waitress had thought I was asking for the bill when I asked for another drink and as an apology brought us two glasses of Prosecco. Everyone was really friendly. Would definitely recommend.
