Attended here for pre-theatre sitting for a birthday. Service was a highlight, felt very looked-after. The food was very interesting, more unusual and delicate as opposed to heavy carb-filling. Tried an Irish red wine for the first time, lovely to see on a menu. Overall an excellent experience, especially the Irish coffee at the end. Looking forward to the next... More

I brought my partner here for a birthday treat. The food, well....what can I say. It was just divine. Everything is made with such attention to detail that it is almost like artwork! The staff are great and the atmosphere is lovely. If you are looking for a meal to remember you should go here. You will not regret it!

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
