Service and atmosphere was great. Main course fillet steak served up with garden peas and potato gratin. The peas or potato were not enjoyable-didn’t match the steak at all.
Desert was described beautifully-what arrived was not. Sundae was simply a chocolate muffin at the bottom of a glass cold with a lot of ice cream on top-very below average especially considering the price.

Food was more like eddie rockets. You certainly wouldn't go for the food.

The food was average to below average. We had a Parma ham pizza which lacked any flavour at all. The antipasti board was very average and again, lacked a lot of flavour. The cocktail was over priced at €12 for a very very small glass and was thrown together in about 2 mins. Our waitress was extremely polite and friendly - all the waiting staff were excellent! The atmosphere is very nice and the bar was a good area to sit at and enjoy a drink but would not be rushing back for food at all.

We had a brilliant server, just the right amount of attentive and very fun. Food and drinks arrived pretty timely and everything was delicious. I've already recommended it to a colleague for a lunch meeting this week. The noise level was moderately loud but it was a busy Saturday night and the bar was full, it didn't affect me having a conversation. The tables were quite close together so Id recommend a booth if you can nab one! All staff were well trained and polite, we stayed for a drink at the bar afterwards, will definitely revisit!

The bar service is very poor. We waited ages while bartenders walked past us. The food wasn't memorable. Some items were burnt and some items were clearly not grilled when it stated on the menu that they should be. Was just okay.

Really great service.
Drinks and food arrived really fast. Staff were super friendly and came over to check if everything was okay during our meal. I left my umbrella behind the and lady who was serving us kept it and I was able to get it back . Would highly recommend Roberta's for a date or catch up with the girls.

I have been to Roberta's once before and decided to give it a second try because the first time the food was awful too. The pizza is the worst pizza I have had, my friend agreed. Location and venue are fabulous but the food is really letting you down. I won't be returning.

Although I really enjoyed my steak the mash on the side was more like a child's portion. And not a lot of options on the menu. We found also that the tables where very close together and felt like I was disturbing the people beside us if we needed to go use the bathroom.

Great location. Lovely bar and restaurant. Good to be able to stay in the same location for food and then drinks. Cocktails good. We were a group of 6. Service slow at times. Service charge extremely steep at €34.50.

Loved the spot, fab waitress, fab atmosphere... shared platter for starters was really good... I had the prawn pasta dish for my mains and tasted delicious but I think I counted 5/6 prawns at most, bit mean on the prawns I must say... I’ll still go back... extremely noisy but suppose that’s a good thing!!

Food was good but whole experience was tainted by slow service. We weren't asked if everything was okay, food almost flung on table. We weren't offered desserts or coffee when our plates were taken and had to look for someone to ask. When we got the bill we were waiting 20 minutes while staff passed the table not taking the bill/ payment. Eventually we gave up and went to the counter to pay. The staff greeting and bringing you to your seat have a much better manner than servers who gave base-level service.

The food was brilliant and atmosphere was fab but service really REALLY let it down. We were waiting 1:20hrs before receiving any food due to mix ups and “miscommunications” rather that it being overly busy or anything. Had to repeatedly ask for things. Food really was so great but the service really coloured our experience. Not sure if I’d be back to be honest

Beautiful food in a lovely setting and overall a very positive experience. If we had any complaint it would be the service which at times was not to standard and we had to request drinks to our table twice on 2 separate occasions.

The service was very slow, the waitress kept forgetting about us and what drinks we ordered. The food came and half of it was cold and they forgot our sides. After mains we weren’t offered a desert menu. Gorgeous place, not the best service so didn’t enjoy food

Overall it was a good experience, but it really felt like the place was understaffed. Some drinks took a long time to come, and although they took it off the bill, situation is not ideal. I’d recommend hiring extra staff for busy nights.

The food was lovely but unfortunately our service was rather poor. Once dinner was finished we were asked to move on as the table was being used - we had to ask twice before they found us another seat at the bar to move to. We then waiting another 20 minutes to get drinks and no one arrived. After spending a couple of hundred euro it was a rather poor way to end the evening. We were also sat inbetween two group tables who were very noisey, with one of our guests being deaf it made the surrounding noise difficult for her.
