I was there on Monday evening and can confirm that a visit to the Chophouse is the best way to start your week! The staff are engaging, professional and funny, the food is well thought out, well sourced and beautifully cooked and the steaks deserve their star billing. I love this place. My mission for 2017 is to make wheaten... More

First time visit during mid week for dinner...hadn't come across this restaurant despite being in Dublin since May 2016, so a really good find esp as it's not in the City centre- a 10min cab ride out towards Lansdowne Road area. Food doesn't disappoint & was excellent- they're even coma around with the tray of meat to tempt you into... More

Hosted a business dinner here for some American clients, in fact from Texas. So bit if a risk taking them to a stake house but we had heard great things. It more than lived up to its billing. Great service steak was too quality and the Guinness was spot on.

Just had probably the best meal We've had in a restaurant in a long time, the steak was cooked to perfection as was the pork belly, the chips were nice and crunchy and the mash potato was lovely and creamy.

We had a family lunch for my Dad's birthday last Sunday. I picked it because it could accommodate steak lovers, vegetarians and small children - not an easy feat. The food was absolutely fantastic. We all ordered different things and everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the burger and the meat was top quality - it tasted excellent. The reason... More
