Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Terrible service! Our waiter ignored us after dinner arrived, despite looking right at us on three occasions. Absolutely horrible service. When told, management did nothing about it. Will never return.

DoverSole, chowder and passionfruit mousse were all very good, to be expected from a top-rated restaurant. The maitre’d and my server were both quite cordial. Deducted one star for the fact that they were out of both the Chardonnay and the dessert wine that I...ordered. But really I deducted 2 stars for the almost insulting email exchange I had with someone named Jaque at least 6 weeks earlier, who would only let me make a reservation for 1 at the bar counter on a Saturday afternoon . This despite the fact that I pointed out to him/her via email that I planned to order Dover Sole, at least 2 courses and wine, which would be more than double what a check for 2 people would be that ordered from the lunch special menu. When I pointed this out to the maitre’d upon my arrival, he acted surprised like he didn’t know what I was talking about. I don’t know if he really didn’t know or if he was himself Jaque, I would have been extremely annoyed if I had to enjoy my $150 lunch sitting on a barstool. Only the fact that I live in a seafood desert would have made me even consider it.More

As a lover of seafood I had to try what was on offer in Dublin. I stumbled on this place, and chanced my arm to see if they could accommodate me without a booking. They offered me a seat at the bar which I was...perfectly happy with. I then saw the tasting menu and asked if I could eat the bar. No problem. The tasting menu was sublime. The outstanding dish was the Turbot with Foie Gras. I never thought they would go together, but it was sublime. Wine paring was spot on, and the service impeccable. Only critics was I would have liked if the portions were a little larger, but that just me. Definitely worth a visit.More

The atmosphere is excellent. The servers are really professional and super friendly. They are very attentive. The steak is tender and perfectly cooked to your desire. It tasted really good of the charcoal grill. It was very nice seasoned. The drinks were nice tasting. We...tried the espresso martini and the lemon cheesecake cocktail. Will very much recommend. Also the passion fruit mousse dessert is super tasty. If I'm back in Dublin I will definitely go back!More

The house staff, servers, and table staff are obviously trained well, in appearance, demeanour, and presenting the food & beverages you want, when you want them. The food is excellent taste, quality, and fairly priced.

Our dinner at Sole was more than a match for any of the wonderful dining experiences we've had over the years. The welcome was prompt and friendly. The restaurant was full and hence fairly noisy, but not to extent that it impacted the experience. The...staff were friendly, very helpful and fairly easy to attract the attention of. The restaurant provides ample gluten free options and all of the food we tried was simply outstanding! The scallops and monkfish were reportedly excellent. My Fruits of the Sea Platter was huge and very tasty, as was the cod and chips. The only tip for improvement would be to not ruin the thoughtful birthday surprise by giving gluten-containing cake to someone who's intolerent ;-). Whilst the price is admittedly high, for a special occasion it's hard to think of anywhere better!More

Maybe just an off night as this place was highly recommended on the travel sites. I thought it had a "fishy" smell when we walked in, not in a fresh way. I order mussels and they were good, but extremely small. The broth was great,...but I've seen small steamers that were bigger than these mussels. On the plus side, the staff was very attentive and the place looks very nice. We had a hightop table for 4 which was a bit small.More

This place could have a Michelin star. The ingredients are excellent and the dishes are well prepared. Unfortunately the service is abysmal. I went for the tasting menu. It wasn’t so much 6 courses as four amuses bouches, a main and a dessert. I had...been there for an hour and all I’d been fed were two oysters and a scallop. The bread was mediocre at best, and the wine arrived either way before or after the food. A bit more effort and it could be somewhere special.More

Excellent service, and excellent food. We ordered the tower of seafood for two, and my partner had the sole. All were expertly prepared - and washed down with Guinness - after all, it was St Paddy's Day. Recommended.

There are some tables in the bar area with high chairs and there is also the option of sitting at the actual bar on a high chair. The seating at the front and the booths at the side are more comfortable.
