Does Chapter One actually NEED another great review - probably not, but they deserve it! Had heard a lot of advance info about this place and wasn't let down - on a dismal weekday August afternoon, lunch with friends in Chapter One put a smile on everyone's face. The service is that so hard to find - excellent yet discreet,... More

Live in Dublin and dine regularly. Had not dined in Chapter One for a few years. Always found it very hard to get a booking in even though one the night that I was there it was only half full plus none of the diners looked like the kind of clients you get in top Dublin starred restaurants (Giulbaud's, L'Ecrivan...

This was excellent Irish food and wonderful atmosphere for sure. The only bad thing I can say about is that between dishes (My husband and I ordered the tasting menu) the time was just too long. Maybe it was jet lag but I don't think a meal should take close to 3 hours... But as mentioned it could very well... More

My boyfriend treated me to a birthday dinner here and all the positive things I've heard about the restaurant are true. Food was amazing. Very charming staff. We'll have to go back real soon.

My expectations were very high going to Chapter One and coming away from the experience I feel it didn't live up to my expectations. Granted the only thing I have to compare is a recent visit to Nevin Maguire's McNean Restaurant but for my money McNean House is better and the one I'll be returning to. The breads to begin... More

Four of us had a booking for a Saturday night in chapter one. From the moment we entered and were greeted by the maître d in a friendly welcoming manner we felt it could be a very good night. We had the four course meal and whilst the Michelin star menu seemed to have limited choice for the less adventurous... More

Close to many of Dublin's most visited sites: O Connell Street, the General Post Office, the Garden of Remembrance, the Hugh Lane gallery, and the Gresham Hotel,Chapter One is a fine restaurant and a visit here is truly a culinary experience. The dining room is opulent but user friendly, the food is sublime and the service is impeccable but not... More

We visited Chapter One for the first time last week and had the tasting menu with accompanying wines costing 80 euros per person. From start - and by that I mean the telephone booking with Sharon - to Martins warm greeting and through every one of the amazing courses this was an outstanding gastronomic experience. The menu was imaginative with... More

We booked Chapter One to celebrate a friends birthday. Have to say that I wasn't particularly excited as my last visit there had left me a little underwhelmed. Not the same story this time! The experience we had was certainly first class. From booking, to the effusive greeting at the door, to the wonderful food and great ambiance.....it would be... More
