  • Very disappointing

    Our experience started poorly as we waited a good ten minutes at the reception desk until someone even acknowledged us. When we were finally seated, our waitress did not come over to our table for another 15 minutes. We waited a considerable time for our food which was uninspired. Husband had seafood risotto with ample seafood but very little flavor. I had seared scallops which were okay but they were served with a bland cream sauce over some penne. The wine was overpriced. $9 a glass for a wine that sells for $10 a bottle. We skipped dessert since everything else was so disappointing. The 2 star rating may be generous.

    The staff was accommodating our needs to make it to the play. Our waiter, Daniel, was attentive and efficient. He ensured a great dining experience and a quick exit to the Ogunquit Playhouse, conveniently just minutes down the road. I especially enjoyed the spinach salad. The Chicken Marsala was notable, while the rest of the party enjoyed avaried menu ranging from steak to Lobster. And off course the pasta was excellent.

    We went to Roberto's before a show at the Playhouse (6pm) - we had a cocktail, appetizer, and entrees and dessert. The cocktails were very good. We had the anti-pasto for 2 - the presentation was fabulous - the flavors, however, were just okay. Our entrees were quite generous - neither of us finished ( and we can eat ! ) - I had the seafood scampi - the lobster was well done and plentiful, lots of shrimp too - very nice. Bill had the lobster and pasta special - and it was very good, too. We had cappucino's and split a chocolate gelato bomb - that was wonderful. Wine with dinner was a crisp Pinot Grigio - a nice compliment to the seafood meals. Overall - very nice. We enjoyed our experience with plenty of time to make the 830 show.

    We live in the area and stopped going to Roberto's because the service was always slow. We went back this Saturday and it was still slow but our waitress Nellie was very pleasant, which helps. It is a bit noisy. We will go back.

    We are repeat customers and go to Roberto's at least once during our vacation.Everyone's food came out piping hot and excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and top notch. Overall this was a great experience. The restaurant is kid-friendly with good choices for children. I would recommend this restaurant to others who not only like good Italian food, but excellent seafood choices as well.

    Roberto's is always a stop for us when we vacation in Perkins Cove. The early dinner special is a great value with excellent portions. The pasta dishes seem to be freshly prepared and delicious. The lobster bisque was the only disappointment.....its consistency and flavor was more like a watery broth. The desserts were very good and homemade. I would certainly continue to dine at Roberto's, especially for the early special!

    We've gone there twice in the last 2 weeks and the food is fantastic as usual. The problem is getting food and drinks out. It took about 15-20 minutes to get drinks after ordering them. The appetizers came relatively quickly, but the entrees were about 45 minutes behind the appetizers after we finished them and were cleared from the table. We didn't stay for desert.

    Amazing food and service! My husband and I celebrated our birthday which is on the same day. Our server Nellie, and all the wait staff we great. They surprised us with a piece of tiramisu with two candles and sang Happy birthday and the rest of the restaurant joined in. It made our day. Our food was plentiful and done to perfection! We will be going there again, and again!!!!

    It's been more than 20 years that I visit your wonderful region and Roberto's. I have great memories of meals taken there with friends and my late husband. The food is always excellent and the wine is great. The service is perfect. For me it is an important thing to have a meal at Roberto's when I visit Ogonquit.

    Roberto's used to be one of our favorite restaurants but we had not been there in several years. What a disappointment. The food was average and the service was awful. The service was very slow and we rarely saw the waitress. Our second round of drinks was ordered about 25 minutes before they came and were delivered after dessert! The pasta sauce was very plain. Even the bolognese sauce was bland. The creme brulee was chunky. Overall this was a disappointing experience and we will not return to or recommend Roberto's.

    We had a reservation on a Wednesday night. We were seated immediately but it took 20 minutes for the server to get to us. We had 2 hours before we had to be at the theater and told our server. It took another 30 minutes to get our drinks. We ordered right away. The clams casino was inedible, our other appetizers were good, not excellent. One hour 45 minutes later our dinner had not yet arrived and we had to leave without dinner in order to get to the theater. We have been there many times in previous years and have not had this horrible experience. Something changed. We dont blame the server. Management is to blame. Not enough staff for busy season. After being patrons for 6+ years we will never go again.

    This was our 3rd visit to Robertos and not only is the food exceptional, the service was as well. I have tried 3 dishes to date a each one was as good as the other. Our new favorite restaurant when visiting Ogunquit. Also, on another note, the valet was a show in itself. Remarkable job on parking the cars!!!!!!!
