Very disappointing. No allergy information on the menu. No option to have gluten free bread. Waitress couldn’t tell us what a “Bavette” steak was as she’s vegetarian. Music was too loud. Won’t be going back.

As always, the service and food were fantastic. I definitely recommend the fried chicken. It is very tasty. I’ll be back for more.

Loretta’s is a very stylish restaurant with all the tables nicely spaced. We’ll be back for the spiced cauliflower starter & fried chicken which were both very tasty. Our night was made even more enjoyable by the Philipe’s attentive service and also his good sense of fun. This restaurant deserves to be packed & we look forward to returning.

Loretta's is the perfect neighbourhood restaurant. Stylish, welcoming, wonderful service and great great food. Chef Jimmy and his team play a blinder in the kitchen with Kate front of house making sure that everyone has a fabulous time. We're very lucky to have Loretta's in Phibsboro.

I'm local - so really value a great local restaurant. I ve brought friends and family. Always go for 'the fish of the day' option. Never disappointed. I ve only been there in the evenings after work or at a weekend. Others in my company have had pork, steak, chicken, oysters all yum. The staff are wonderful

I love it here it’s such a lovely place to go for brunch or dinner, it’s very trendy and I just love the food everything is delicious. I lived in Melbourne for years and this reminds me of the cool, trendy places to eat over there.

So far we 've eaten 3 times at Lorettas and have really enjoyed the food and service. The food has always been delicious and service, fast and friendly. It would be great if the Locals Menu extended to 7.30pm on Saturdays, and maybe one or two extra glutenfree starters and mains. We will definitely be back as it's a great local restaurant

Food was the star of the show. Service poor and although we wanted a table later we we offered only times around 7pm on opentable which is amazing considering the place was all but empty when we left at 9pm. Our second visit did not compare to our first experience of the establishment.

Thank you for a lovely local evening. The local menu offered a good choice. Children's menu including cheese burger was very welcome. A minor item, children’s menu could offer a pasta dish a little more child friendly. Although it was taken away and made a great adult lunch the next day. Thanks again!

We were very pleased with our meal at Loretta’s. We had a two course dinner with a glass of wine. The food was delicious and the choices interesting. The price was reasonable. They have a brunch menu on the weekends and we’re going back to try it. It’s a local place with high street style and quality. I wish them every success, they deserve it!!

Fabulous neighbourhood restaurant which has changed its menu since I was last there - and, it seemed, made the prices a little more reasonable. Delicious food (oysters a must!) and friendly, attentive service. A great spot.

This was our second visit in 2 weeks. In that time, the menu had been tweaked. There were several new dishes and the pork and lamb dishes on our first visit have been varied. The former is now a pork schnitzel served with a warm herbed potato salad with tiny flecks of bacon. The lamb is now grilled rump and it was melt in the mouth tender and served with garlic mashed potato. Both dishes were delicious. The chef here is clearly a serious genius and we will be back.

Third visit to Lorettas and of course it didnt disappoint. We had starters of aubergine tempura and a delicious cauliflower soup. Unreal... followed by servings of fried chicken. It doesnt get any better than lorettas fried chicken. We finished it all off with a generous helping of the most amazing white chocolate cheesecake! Will be back very soon 😍

Excellent food in a lovely venue. It was a little quiet on the day, this restaurant deserves to be much busier. The music was a tad loud I thought, but that is the only complaint.

We had a lovely time celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff were really friendly and attentive and help with the menu as my wife is a coeliac ,loads of choice which was great. A complimentary glass of prosecco put the icing on a lovely evening in a cool and relaxed dining experience on the Northside of the city!

We were very impressed by the roast lamb and the grilled loin of pork. They were both cooked to perfection and served in a very modern and attractive way. The restaurant itself is very spacious and attractive and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is great to have a restaurant of this calibre in Phibsboro.

Another very special evening in Loretta's. I love the way your menu is constantly changing, sometimes thinking I want a dish that is no longer available... BUT never disappointed with the next new dish. Obviously therr are some staples that are favourite, but love tasting new dishes too!! ❤️Thank you ❤️❤️

Delicious food in a great space. Loved green eggs & ham. Breakfast burrito was tasty but a little greasy! Hence, that one star dropped. Easily corrected for 5 stars

I've been to Lorettas 3 times so far and since the first 2 visits were overall very pleasure experience we hoped choosing this venue to celebrate Father's Day on Sunday 16.06 is a good idea. It turned out just OK, but rather beyond expectations. My husband, myself and our 7yo arrived for 2 o'clock to find out there is no lunch menu available. Just branch which was basically all eggs. I find this very strange especially on the day that was in it that options were so limited. We managed to choose something and ordered food and aperitif. 25 minutes wait for cocktails to arrive I consider a bit long especially cos place wasn't particularly busy. So aperitifs arrived with food which left us a bit disappointed. Taking under consideration u order aperitifs to arrive before food for a reason. My daughter's food turned out to be something else from what she oredered. This was fixed quickly in fairness. I got an avocado sandwich which was tasty but very small. Desserts were beautiful and big portions to be fair.
Cocktails were delicious and staff very nice and attendive but surely lack of lunch menu was quite a disappointment.

The food was excellent and we went with the wine advice of our waitress and it was fantastic.
For a Thursday evening it was very quiet and could have done with more customers. As a local it is not widely known about and fliers might be beneficial.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience in Loretta’s. Food and service were fantastic and portion sizes quite generous. Music playing in the background was new wave /post punk 80’s which I loved.
