It was a birthday celebration and I have to say this restaurant stands out from the crowd, Warm welcome excellent food and very slick front of house. Chapter One has to be one of the best restaurants in Dublin.

This was our 2nd trip to Chapter One. The first was for dinner which received a fab review from us. This time (Fri 5th Sept), we had to experience the lunch time menu - we were not disappointed!! I just love this place. Fantastic food served by fantastic people. Considering it is Michelin star, the price was reasonable and the... More

After trying to book a table for 3 months, we finally got it for a Saturday night. I don’t know if because I was expecting so much about the restaurant that I started with my disappointment when we walked in. Two members of staff brought us to our table, they forgot to take my jacket, and when they did it,... More

Went there to celebrate our 15th anniversary. From the welcome at the front door to the point we left it was a lovely experience. Excellent service, lovely food and a great atmosphere. Highly recommended, not that they need it.

I had very high expectations for my recent first visit to Chapter One and it lived up to them in every way. From the moment of arrival, the service was friendly, attentive but not overbearing. We were at the Chef's table in the kitchen and having worked in restaurants in the past I was truly surprised by the level of... More

We thought the food and the service were wonderful and can understand why this is a Michelin rated restaurant. While somewhat pricey, even by U.K. standards, the food made it worthwhile. Simply delicious!

At our dinner in June, the overall impression was one of a very well healed management team barely deigning to serve their customers. There is little value to be had in Chapter One , and unfortunately little by way of manners either. When we arrived, we let the check-in lady know that only 4 rather than the planned 5 people...

Hadn't been to Chapter One for a while but it's an old favourite and never fails to deliver really excellent food. For the calibre of the food the menu is very fairly priced. Was there mid-week this time whereas in the past was always there at weekends. As a result atmosphere and service not quite as good as previous visits... More

Went to Chapter One last week for their pre theatre menu. The restaurant is a little bit out of the way, but offers great value for money. We were a party of 2, ordered a bottle of one and got the 3 course menu and paid around €100. The restaurant has a warm atmosphere with great wait staff making you... More

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
