Simply perfect dining experience with wonderful food and excellent wine. Staff were very attentive, describing every dish and recommending great wine for every dish. Highly recommended.

Absolutely first class service and top quality food. Never disappoints. I have bought vouchers from the restaurant every year as Christmas presents but never got around to actually eating myself in the restaurant until this visit. And the wait was well worth it. Pricey but well worth the treat

It was a Birthday celebration and we were a party of 4. We arrived by taxi as its not a good part of Dublin to be walking around at night time, being at the top end of O' Connell Street. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the host and his staff, who were all very friendly and... More

Being here many times before but disappointed with this visit, hope it's a once off. Initial service very poor, left waiting at our table for an age before we were eventually being looked after. 1st course was ok, very rich but 2nd course "pig's tail" was unacceptable - my wife found a hair in the middle of it. Very limited... More

Downstairs in the basement of the ex home of the JAMIESON whiskey family, this place let's the food, wine and the excellent staff do all the talking. Lovely well prepared and thoughtful menu is complimented by an outstanding wine list. The prices are expensive, but as always, you get what you pay for. Outstanding restaurant on the great city that... More

My family & I ate here before a performance at the Abbey Theatre and were very happy that we did so. We had the pre theatre dinner at £36.50 and it was excellent. I had the Skate (my first) and it was fishy and wonderful. The ducks and lamb that others ordered drew smiles of delight from everyone. The presentation... More

The steak was delicious and cooked to perfection. The desserts were to die for. The atmosphere was redolent of the decadent dining of ancient Rome at the peak of its powers. I will return to sample the delectable delights of Chapter One! And the pre-theatre menu is an absolute bargain.

Recently visited Chapter One at lunch time and had the lunch time tasting menu. The food was out of this world looked beautiful and tasted even better. Even tastier than the dorchester. Very good value for money. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We held a celebration dinner in Chapter One and it was a truly memorably occasion. I rarely give 5 star reviews but this definitely merited it. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more efficient. Not a bit stuffy as you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber. All our guests enjoyed it immensely. It's definitely not cheap, but nonetheless... More
