Poor service on arrival - we were left unattended while others arriving after us were given great attention. We had to get their attention to order drinks and again to get menus. Finally we had to get their attention to be seated at our table. We were seated one hour after our reservation time. Overall disappointed with the food and... More

We eventually got a reservation onlline for some six weeks later. We had the 4-course dinner and really enjoyed almost every bite. Service was very good - and relaxed at the same time. My quibble was that our table was in a corner (I was facing the wall) beside a long table seating a group of up to 16 persons... More

The undeniable benefit of Michelin certification is that not only quality is good - it is consistently good. The hidden gem of Chapter one is pre-theater menu that offers excellent food at the reasonable price of EUR 39.50. Menu changes from time to time so it is always something new. This time around my choices were Haddock soup, Beef and... More

We had a wonderful evening here. We went for the food tasting paired with wine. Absolutely blown away. Worth the wait and price! Lovely experience.

Back here for dinner. First time here was good but this time better. Food is exquisite from the bread at the start made with a 6 year old starter culture - the previous one was 200 years old however there was an accident! - through to the artisan chocolate. Wine list is extensive and well put together. Service outstanding without... More

The whole experience at Chapter One is quality and exudes class from the moment you are greeted a the door and escorted into the restaurant. The staff are very welcoming and genuinely interested to ensure you have a great experience with attentive but not fussy service. The food is simply superb, couldn't fault anything that we ate - all of... More

Beautiful meal for two before going to the theatre. Lovely food for both a meat eater and a vegetarian alike. Great service and very relaxed atmosphere.

Unbelievable tasting menu. I just wish you coculd get a table more often. The food is to die for, staff friendly and a look inside the kitchen at the end of our meal was a nice touch. Ross is a gentleman.

I came here for a (belated) Christmas present as part of our weekend in Dublin. I've been to a few good restaurants and this one was one of the top few. The atmosphere was very pleasant - it wasn't too loud and the lighting and decor was perfect. I had a rhubarb and custard cocktail which was delicious- it sounds... More
