Roberta’s Restaurant and Rooftop Bar is a beautifully designed space, with contemporary cuisine served to you beneath a bespoke glass ceiling! Nestled between 1 East Essex St and Wellington Quay, this spacious eatery is open for dinner 7 days a week with brunch served at the weekend.

Head Chef, Troy Watson, has put together a brand-new menu, packed with flavour and tasty fare. Aside from a nice variety of gorgeous mains, you can also try out the beautiful, fresh wood fired pizzas from the pizza oven!

Roberta’s is filled with volumes of natural light pouring through the fantastic windows on either side of the building – and through one of the key focal points, the breath-taking glass atrium style ceiling. The sky stretches out above you as you grab a comfortable booth, sink into a cosy chair with a frothy beer or a crafted cocktail on the courtyard style terrace, or pull up a stool at the bar.

Very attentive staff who recommended our wine and continued their excellent service to the table during our meal. The ambience was warm and trendy on an early summer's evening. We ordered pizzas from a short menu and the sides of fries were not great. Lovely mint leaf tea. Would be happy to go there again

My third visit and confident that it would be a hit with my work colleagues. I was not disappointed. We had a memorable evening with great food and great ambience. Recommend everything on the menu but this chicken dish with orzo pasta was very tasty. Dietary requirements also well catered for.

In the overall I had a good experience in the restaurant, but we have waited for more than a hour to receive our main plates. It looks like there was a big group in the restaurant and it has delayed ours, it was not a good experience. Hope it does not happen again if I come back

The service is excellent and the staff are really friendly and professional. It's not a great choice for vegetarians (we got a mix of starters as mains) but if you eat meat then you're onto a winner. The bar is beside the eating area so it was noisy on the Saturday afternoon we were there, but we got used to it. And TBH the staff were so nice that really made everything worth coming back to.

Whilst the service and ambience were great the food was a let down and did not live up to expectations. I had the pasta rigatoni and it was just ok. The pasta was not fully cooked and I like al dente pasta but this was just chewy. The courgettes were lovely, the lamb was tasty, if a bit too fatty, but the aubergine was inedible. My husband had the hake and it looked like it had been left too long under the heat lamp. It tasted ok but was over cooked. We did not mention this to our server as we were in a bit of a hurry on the night

Great place. Food is modern and delicious and the service impeccable. It’s styled on the lines of a large NY warehouse loft, with the kitchen on view. Very trendy and stylish with great lighting, and the capacity of the place doesn’t impact comfort as it’s cleverly sectioned into areas. However all the hard surfaces and the number of guests make it very, very noisy. The bar area has plenty of standing-room. If you’re meeting a group of friends for drinks, and you want to sit together, reserving a table is highly recommended, otherwise you’ll be sat or stood around a vast central bar. The tables in the bar area sit 8 to 10 people but there aren’t that many of them. There is a glass partitioned area for smokers near the bar, which has plenty of smaller tables. Great if you smoke. As a none-smoker I’d go back to eat there any day, but I’d go somewhere else for drinks after.

My daughter and me went to Roberta’s this evening to celebrate her 22nd birthday over dinner. I booked a day ahead with a note that it was my daughter’s birthday. I also called the restaurant earlier today and spoke to reservations to arrange for a dessert to be brought in after our dinner, on a birthday plate with candles and a birthday message. They confirmed a specific dessert and informed me that it will be done. However, no dessert / birthday message came eventually.. we finished our dinner, had dessert cocktails... kept waiting, but nothing came. When the steward came with the bill, I asked to talk to the manager. All that the manager said was that she was sorry and that they did not get a message from reservations ! How can that be ?? I had mentioned about the birthday even in my Open Table booking.... so that should be on the system at the minimum ?! The manager lacked ownership, the apology did not sound sincere enough and there was no attempt towards any loyalty gesture. Extremely disappointing experience.... This was our first visit to the restaurant.... I will never go back again. The food was good... but service was pathetic.

Even though the whole place was buzzing,the noise level was above average,the staff were very attentive,professional,and helpful.There seemed to be rather a large group of French rugby fans seated beside us. The staff were excellent in catering for this large group while also attending to us and other smaller groups. The food was superb,the wine was superb as well, and we have not had such an all round positive dining experience for quite some time. Many thanks to your great team at Robertas.
