Close to many of Dublin's most visited sites: O Connell Street, the General Post Office, the Garden of Remembrance, the Hugh Lane gallery, and the Gresham Hotel,Chapter One is a fine restaurant and a visit here is truly a culinary experience. The dining room is opulent but user friendly, the food is sublime and the service is impeccable but not obtrusive. The wine list is well judged and thoughtfully assembled and a white Vouvray from the Loire was delicious especially when matched with the perfectly cooked and well presented ray wing. Cynics say that Michelin starred restaurants tend to tickle the palate rather than fill the stomach. Our palates were certainly tickled and our appetites suitably satisfied

We visited Chapter One for the first time last week and had the tasting menu with accompanying wines costing 80 euros per person. From start - and by that I mean the telephone booking with Sharon - to Martins warm greeting and through every one of the amazing courses this was an outstanding gastronomic experience. The menu was imaginative with superb presentation and every course was wonderfully cooked. Service was immaculate and I cannot wait to return to this restaurant as soon as possible! The lunch tasting menu in what is a Michelin starred restaurant represents probably the best combination of food, wine and value I have had anywhere in any country.

We booked Chapter One to celebrate a friends birthday. Have to say that I wasn't particularly excited as my last visit there had left me a little underwhelmed. Not the same story this time! The experience we had was certainly first class. From booking, to the effusive greeting at the door, to the wonderful food and great ambiance.....it would be hard to find fault with the Chapter One team. Maybe the complete overpricing of the drinks, alcoholic and non, may be the one fly in the ointment, but, for the occasional treat, you would find it hard to pass.

Loved the lunch. Similar menu, lower price. A good alternative to a fancy dinner. Would definitely do it again.

Went for my friend's birthday as had a voucher. We have been on two previous occasions and have not enjoyed the experience...BUT totally different this time. The food was outstanding on all three courses and the service was good...slightly over the top. Sometimes when you try too hard it shows....relax guys! ...(Emulate Stephane in Patrick Guilbaud's..the consumate host,maitre'd and boss)
Had the pre theatre menu. Not rushed, lovely ambience and the decor was different , if a little grey. All in all a huge improvement in staff, food and meal timing. Well done
