There were three in our party for this restaurant even though we booked for four, they quickly re-arranged the table and we were seated in a handsome room, very quiet on our arrival and we thought that we would be alone but fortunately it quickly filled up and had a great atmosphere. The meal is priced as a four course... More

Last year, my sister and I decided to start ticking off some of the boxes on our 'Bucket List', and one of those was to have dinner at Chapter One restaurant. We had lived in Dublin many years ago but eating at a Michelin star restaurant was way out of our grasp at the time. Also after having seen Ross... More

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate my birthday. We were greeted at the door and were made to feel extremely welcome. We were sat in a quiet corner of the restaurant and staff were attentive throughout the night, even writing down personal recommendations of places to go afterwards. We opted for the taster menu which was exquisite and definitely... More

First time in Dublin and chose Chapter One for dinner to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. From the moment we arrived the service was warm, friendly and exceptional. The atmosphere of the restaurant was welcoming and not at all pretentious. The food was incredibly delicious, in fact possibly the best meal we've had (we ate the four course dinner). Our waiter...

Totally spur of the moment following visit to the Hugh Lane Gallery next door. Warmly welcomed us despite late arrival and no booking. (But have to ring bell to get in. We thought it was closed at first) Michelin star style food that is always an interesting treat for us. Would not go every day but great experience in every... More

Based on a recommendation, I went here for a business lunch. The restaurant is in a basement of a building at the top of Parnell Square. It was my last stop before the airport, which meant that I arrived with a suitcase, which they duly stored for me and took me through to the bar where the other diners were... More

Really thought that as advertised as a high class restaurant it would be a much better experience for me.The table wasn't set correctly, and when I asked about a certain dish on the menu the waiter didn't know and had to go away to find out the answer. When our food was brought to the table we were asked what... More

Service here was excellent, no doubt about that. The food was pretty uninspiring to be honest. I had rib of beef and it was as ordinary a plate of food as I've encountered i. The starter was nice, but again, I didn't think it demonstrated exceptional skill, at any level. Overall, the experience was okay, but (apart from very prompt,... More

From beginning to end this could not have been better-it was culinary art and delicacy at its finest!!!! We were a group of 14 and the service, attention to detail, courses were unbelievable. This is an INCREDIBLY special restaurant in a very historic building. Make a reservation ahead of time!!! This is a night to remember dining experience.
