“One of the best in Dublin”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

excellent food, excellent service, pricey but you get what you pay for...will definitely go back...check out their 'set lunch' as a cheaper option for excellent quality food.

“It was a 3month wait with a little hiccup with our main course.”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

After making a booking in November for the nearest weekend date, which was February, we were excited about finally getting to dine in Chapter One. We arrived a little early and received a very warm welcome from Martin, the co owner. We waited in the bar area and decided to choose our wine from the extensive list. We were also given our evening menu while we waited to be seated and gave our order to the waiting staff. After being seated our first course came out very quick which was Chestnut Soup along with a selection of breads including Gluten Free bread for my wife. Our next courses were Scallops and Charcuterie Trolley and both were presented impeccably. Next course arrived out soon after. While I had the Beef my wife had the Halibut . My wife noticed that as she opened up the fish it was red and cold in the middle so we summoned over our waiting staff who whisked it away to the chef. The manager came over a few mins later to apologise and the chef also sent his apologises. When it did come back all was forgiven. Once dessert was finished we were both offered a drink each on the house to apologise for the mishap which was appreciated. We felt very relaxed during our dining experience and we were well looked after by all the staff involved that evening. I do feel that it was nice to experience the Michelin star treatment but we were not wowed by the food.

“Charming night out”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Went for the first time Saturday the 18th for dinner. Had read the mixed reviews posted on 17th feb so was interested to see what it would actually be like. Really enjoyed the night and will definitely be back. The food was wonderful and although not cheap for the quality we found it good value for Dublin. Highly recommend the scallops, rabbit and the chocolate dessert was gorgeous. Very enjoyable night

“The best food I ever had!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Chapter one has one michelin star. I think they deserve more... It's the best food and the best service I ever had - and it's very reasonable prices as well
