Food was outstanding Staff are very good at what they do, they make you feel special and the food is fresh and fabulous and so tasty anu never you never know who is seating beside you perhaps somebody famous. But in this restaurant all diners are treated equal.

One Mich star says it all about the food and service -- but let me say more. The chef coaxes outstanding flavors from local ingredients, the front of house provides attentive service, bartenders make great cocktails, and we had the best Irish Coffee in Dublin.

We celebrated my wife's birthday in Chapter One last Saturday. Two of my daughters joined us for the evening. From the moment we arrived, Martin Corbett and his staff went out of their way to welcome us to their restaurant. The food on the evening was exceptional, and whilst the restaurant was full, what really impressed me was the waiters... More

Atmosphere & service were welcoming, friendly & unfussy but food was distinctly average! Main dish was good but other courses were overly complicated and lacking in taste. Totally underwhelming for one of Dublin's top restaurants!!

The welcome on arrival, after knocking on the door to gain entry, was beyond warm and inviting. We sat in the bar while we waited for some additional guests but we could have sat at our table too, which was positioned smack bang in the centre of the restaurant. We were walked through every course by not only the waiters,... More

The staff in chapter one are the best I've ever came across, attentive but not sitting with you while you try to eat. Knowledge of what they were serving was extremely professional. The menu had excellent choice and the four courses were a perfect size to fill anyone. Finished with an Irish coffee made at the table. Couldn't recommend this... More
