The meat was cooked to perfection. The place isn't cheap but Dublin in general is not cheap. Food was awesome and I would definitely return if I had to go back in Dublin. Highly recommend!

Arrived without a booking last Sunday evening and we were given a table quite quickly. Great service, lovely food and nice interior. Interesting gin menu, however a little on the expensive side. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend.

Brought clients to Chophouse and was a great experience on a cold night. Steak was amazing and it was a pleasant meal with wine and beer selections of great selection and high standard.

Not my first time here as a great favourite for lunch. The proprietors are hands on and are constantly vigilant - it shows on all fronts. Service is excellent in a lovely informal way. The ambiance is soothing with cool greys. Tables are not too...More

The Chophouse Gastro Pub is wonderful and tonight we were especially grateful for its proximity to our hotel. Warm, charming, comfortable with excellent wine (we had Tempranillo and Rioja), scrumptious food and very pleasant service. Winner of the the 2014 Gastro Pub Ireland, the menu...More

When I dined I saw high chairs but don't think they have changing tables. As the restaurant has several stepped layers, wheel chair access is limited
