Have been here a few times for lunch and it really is top notch. The service from the welcome to the bill are so friendly and professional. The food is great - well cooked and beautifully prepared. Very good quality ingredients. Having thought long and hard about which restaurants really are worth multiple visits in Dublin, this is one of... More

Visited recently for the afternoon taster menu with wine matching and would highly recommend! The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, even offering bar and restaurant recommendations for the rest of our Dublin visit. Chapter One were also very accommodating and produced a vegetarian taster menu for myself, which was incredible - each course better than the last. The real... More

We came here for lunch based on seeing many trip advisor reviews and online recommendations and were not disappointed. The staff were brilliant and very attentive, attention to detail was superb. The food was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by both of us. Would definitely recommend!

Was taken to this restaurant by a friend for a birthday dinner. The menu was fantastic and tasted as good as it sounded. The service was fantastic. It was a special experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Eventually managed to get a booking after several attempts and then only an early booking - they have two sittings. Good greeting and show to our table which was not actually in the restaurant but is an alcove in the bar area. There are about 4-5 tables in this dingy alcove. It was very hard to hear as being just... More

The food does not taste like anything. Dessert did not taste like anything, food was very bland. Will go back to try again.

This is a top-end restaurant that punches above its Michelin rating and matches the very best on an international level. The food is excellent, the setting just right and the service impeccable. In short it leaves a very good taste in the mouth all round. Such a pity then, that in this Centenary year of all years, the powers that... More

Great food, comfortable and relaxed even though one Michelin star. Very friendly staff. We consider Chapter One a must at least one evening when we are in Dublin.
