The food and restaurant were lovely, the service however, was incredible slow. As a group we only ordered main courses, it took 30 mins to have our drink order taken and 45 mins to order food. The restaurant wasn't busy enough to justify the delay.

Excellent food as usual. The room was somewhat cool but the restaurant looks fantastic and there is plenty of room.

Very late booking accommodated for our party of 7, we were late but we were given enough time to finish our food and drink ...which was lovely, well presented, plenty of it...the sourdough bread should be sold to take home..,divine it was..,
Lovely ambiance, friendly staff and nice spacious tables which makes a big difference from squashed in tables...we will be back !

Food is usually great, service is always impeccable and friendly. Sadly, on this occasion our two pasta mains were almost inedible due to the mushrooms being full of grit - a really unpleasant sensation. Hopefully just a once off..

We booked Lorettas for a Friday lunchtime, thinking it would be busy and have a buzz to it, but we couldnt believe how quiet it was. Our server was very nice and efficient. The food was good, not outstanding, soup was a little on the cold side, and portion was very small. The avocado with feta was very nice, again a little stingy on the portion, Chips were outstanding. Chicken in buttermilk was tasty enough. Sandwich with soup was good. I had read good reviews of Lorettas when it opened, was mistified by so few people for a Friday lunchtime. Maybe the area is well serviced with restaurants. Tried it once, dont know if we would return. Saw another couple who came in after us, and passed them on our way to bathroom, and portions seemed hugh! maybe they were regulars. I'm not greedy, I had enough but my fellow diners thought the portions were small for the price.

A wonderful brunch destination. The food was wonderful, full of flavour and very memorable! The cocktails to start were excellent. I'll definitely be back. I see they have kids menus now and a Local's Menu offering a great value set menu. The room is lovely and the service was flawless. Very lucky to have this place in Phibsboro!

I went for the early bird dinner with 5 friends from work. We were all very impressed overall. The décor is very nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The service was excellent and everyone was happy with their meal. We all agreed that we would be back again and that we would recommend Loretta's to friends and family.

I have a party of six people for brunch. The service was very good and mainly attentive. The food was also very enjoyable. However, when the bill arrived there was a handwritten extra service charge for twelve and a half per cent. Nothing on the menu indicated this. I brought it to the waiter's attention. He said it was on the menu but when he checked it was not.
I paid in full, plus the service but it was offputting. If service is to be added then it should be stated and customers must be made aware - which I was not. Otherwise an overall good experience.

There was an extremely long wait for the food, even though it didn't appear to be that busy. I don't think they have made the best use of space, it lacks a cosy, intimate feel. I remember being there last December and being really cold. After waiting for an hour for our mains, the steak was tepid. They did offer to reheat but after waiting an hour I was too hungry to send it back. They were very apologetic and did remove it from the bill. The decor and windows are really nice but again there is something off about how they have arranged the seating - it feels like there is a lot of wasted space.

So amazing. I love this place. Will always accommodate my picky tastes and cater to my needs. Their food is always so well presented and most importantly packed with flavour and delicious.
They have recently got a new coffee machine to cater for many coffee styles. Up to now it was filter only.
Go to Loretta's and enjoy!

Absolutely wonderful meal on Friday night. The Fig and st. Too as goats cheese started was incredible and the bavette steak delish. Wine and decor too hot the spot perfectly!

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.

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.
