                                                    Terrible food. Some inedible, the rest was either really ordinary or just a bit nasty. Definitely one to avoid. Crazy loud room too.

                                                    Family dinner, group of 5, with very different tastes. The service was excellent, to the point where they were able to accommodate my youngest son who has a very specific diet. The rest of us loved our starters and mains but were all too full to try the desert menu. Having spent 10 years in London this is the kind of place I didn't think Dublin had. Excellent all round. Looking forward to going back.

                                                    The interior is nice, but noisy. The music is loud and the crowd makes it even worse. Perhaps we are too old for this place. The food was a pleasant surprise. Almost gourmet quality. Well made, tasty and good looking. Not very many waiters. They were busy, but handled their job nicely. Good value.

                                                    It is a great place, it is not the first time we go. But the Eggs Benedict we ordered were overcooked and the roasted potatoes were not well done.

                                                    The place had been recommended a few times. Great place, had brunch, plenty of options. Spacious, cool atmosphere. Staff lovely. Really enjoyed it

                                                    Love this place- food and staff are great. Only criticism is that tables are far too close together and it’s impossible to have a private conversation without the tables next to you hearing and visa versa

                                                    Decent venue but fillet steak was massively over priced at €41.00 with sides as extra. Menu has not changed in some time so choices are limited once you have dinned here a couple of times. (Time to change it up?)

                                                    My friend and I visited on Saturday evening. Starters were amazing. But the mains were only okay. The customer service was exceptional, we loved the decor. But our table was next to a very big group of people. It was very loud. Can’t blame them. Overall, it was a good experience

                                                    Front of house is the reason for a poor review. Our initial booking did not go through, we hadn't gotten a booking confirmation so completely understood and just asked if there would be any openings later that night, we were told that there was not. We left the restaurant and looked up dinner options outside only to be able to book a table for Robertas 30 minutes later. We returned at our booked time explained we were surprised to go online outside & be able to book almost immediately- there were a number of tables and times available online. I was told they were cancellations that happened after I left. We were then told to wait at the bar while they prepared our table, having ordered and gotten drinks at the bar and seeing numerous tables were empty I questioned why we still weren't seated. When I asked about this I was told that my booking was last minute and those tables were for people who booked before me- I kid you not! I counted 5 tables of various sizes including tables for 2 but yet we still were not seated. The attitude of the guy I was speaking to was appalling. Eventually we were seated. The place was not full. The food was lovely and other staff were very pleasant. The problem was the guy at front of house who was unhelpful, obstructive and extremely rude.

                                                    It was our first time there, and won't be our last. Service from the offset by our service Henryik set us off to a great evening - we all loved our cocktails and the food, steaks cooked to perfection and amazing pizzas. The atmosphere was very cool and hip with a relaxed ambience and buzzy vibe, we loved that we weren't rushed out of our booth and could relax and enjoy a few drinks after dinner while listening to the tunes. Thanks guys for a great night.

                                                    Huge dining rooms, difficult to hear conversation. Had crab salad starter, it was ok. Heavy on the lime & no apple to be found. Bit of a tuna-mayo vibe about it. Had sea-bass main, asked to substitute the baby potatoes for chips which was no trouble. However, the chips when they arrived, were burnt & inedible. The pizza my friend got was 'ok'. Didn't bother with desserts. We got complimentary coffees cos we complained about the chips, however it was weak & insipid. I'd wanted to try the place for ages, but I won't be back.

The food was perfect- the pizzas were exceptional! The cocktails were made perfectly and the bill was very reasonable. The atmosphere was chilled but there was still a great buzz about the place! Definitely will return!

                                                    Staff are amazing and make the place special, cool decor and cool vibe. Food is good value but just a bit above average as with all press up groups establishments. But I still enjoy it and would recommend.
