My partner and I booked in to Chapter One for the Pre-Theatre meal on a Thursday night and although the restuarant was busy, it was not overly busy where you can't enjoy your own company. The food was amazing as was the service, with different waiters for each aspect of the meal, we found the waiters very attentive and the... More

The restaurant was a great experience. We were made to feel very special from the moment we walked in. Amazing food with fantastic waiting on staff to explain everything. They even went out of their way to recommend and book us a place for cocktails. Couldn't fault anything!

Went with the lady for pre-theatre meal. Perfect starters and main. Argentinian red wine was lovely in my humble opinion. Staff make the place, from the attentive water re-fill and bread to efficient service. Great start to a great evening.

Went here with my partner last year as we had a voucher we received as a gift. The food was amazing and the waitress didn't fuss over us too much but was always on hand if we had any questions regarding the dishes that were served. Definitely would return but maybe for a birthday/occasion as it is expensive (but well... More

Booking is essential to guarantee a table at this special restaurant. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, expertly fielding any questions about the menu. The four course tasting menu is superb. Each course is lovingly presented and the combination of flavours is exquisite.

Nice food well presented, good service with a very attentive waiter, a great choice from the menu, The atmosphere was very relaxed. The restaurant was busy. It was an excellent dining experience in the heart of Dublin and I would recommend it. We were a group of friends on a night out.

Went to Chapter One for lunch. The food was well prepared. Herring appetizer excellent. Duck and beef rump were excellent as was the desserts and Irish coffee. My biggest complaint was the less than attentive service. No one came over to check on us during the meal and by the end of the lunch service most of the senior staff... More
