I'd heard good things about this place so I decided to take a long lunch from the office and check it out for lunch. It was a fantastic sunny day so we opted to sit outside. After sometime waiting, we were not approached by any staff. I took the initiative and went inside to grab two menus. Once we'd looked... More

Eat here about once a month - it's always beautiful. For a place that's known for it's steaks, I can safely say the fish is also beautiful. Service is really good, staff really friendly & good for a laugh. Always great atmosphere.

The seafood appetizer was lovely, best fish cakes ever (and this group travels and eats out alot). Now the steak....I had the filet and it was grand! Cooked perfectly... More

We met up with some friends at The Chophouse and were not disappointed. The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed and our server was attentive and really pleasant. The appetizers were average (butternut squash tortellini and the caramelized king scallops) but the beef we had for dinner was amazing. We had the rib eye and the strip loin and each was... More

We had a great meal on Monday 4th August. Our group included a vegetarian and although the menu did not list any veggie options, the team were very willing to accommodate with a number of suggested non meat or fish options. Its difficult to be critical as the team were so warm and welcoming however a few things were unavailable... More

Went to Chophouse twice on my one week visit to Dublin. The food, service and wine was great both times. I genuinly liked the place. It's so rare to find a place where food is simply awesome and sophisticated but there's no fuss - the service is relaxed and friendly and the place is cozy. I'd go again anytime.

This place was packed on a hot Thursday night. So packed that the waiting staff was making small mistakes here and there. Like delivering the starters before our aperitives. Not bad place, but you have to understand there ain't many alternatives around, this place has no local competition.
