After hearing so many good review you can sometimes build up unrealistic expectations for a visit to a restaurant, nothing can prepare you for how good this is. To start with the service, we were greeted with a very friendly welcome. My wife is heavily pregnant and as we were seated the lady who greeted us went a got her... More

For a recent celebration this was one on my list that I have been waiting to splurge on and it was worth it. When they realised we were there (as a couple) for a special occasion we invited to the chefs table to enjoy our aperitif and although there was no stereotypical restaurant chef madness to witness, it was a...

I was in Dublin last Oct 2014 and friends from Belfast came to see me. A friend chose Chapter One because of it's proximity to the train station..We were very surprised with the great atmosphere of the place. The food was superb... and the staff were splendid.. They made us feel very welcome like we were part of their family.... More

The quality and reputation of Chapter One might suggest a degree of formality about the place, but nothing could be further from the truth. The reception that you get is really welcoming and friendly. Looking at the lunch menus, which to our minds are not cheap, there was little to make us go for the set lunch rather than the... More

This has long been my favorite restaurant in Dublin. The food is amazing, service impeccable, and it's actually a really decent price for the level of quality you get here. I usually go for the evening meal vs pre theater but this time I just couldn't get a reservation other than 5:30 pm. That being said, I was certainly not... More

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful, from the moment you walk in the door. The staff are amazing and the attention to detail is second to none. Relatively expensive but so worth it for the quality of the food. Clean plates all round for every course. Can't wait to return for another special occasion.

My wife booked this as a surprise for my 40th! What a lovely surprise, the place is faultless. We had a 7 course tasting menu with wines to complement the food. Each course was delicious and the waiters were very informative and passionate about each course. We were given in depth explanations to the various combinations on the plate and... More

Recently enjoyed a meal at chef's table. Any restaurant that features this - you know is going to be professional, clean, structured etc. And Chapter One was unbelievably so. What blew me away was the excellent service and quality of food. Menu was incredibly imaginative and fresh local produce that tasted amazing. Courses that compliment one another. Presentation, I thing... More
