    Loved our night at Robertas. The only small complaint I'd have would have been that in a relatively empty restaurant they placed us right next the couple beside us rather than leaving a table spare between us to give us, and them, that bit more privacy. Other than that we had a lovely evening and would come back again for sure and recommend to friends.

    Terrible service - waiting ages to be seating , then waiting again to be served. We ordered drinks with food. Waiting 25 mins for plates to be cleared and never asked for drink top up. Never received dessert menu either. Pizza was full of oil and was poor.

    The quality of the food is excellent, and the service is equally impressive! The portions should be a little bigger given the higher-than-average prices, but that would never stop us from eating here again. On the contrary, my wife and I are both looking forward to coming back to try the pizzas!

    Lovely decor and really friendly and attentive staff! The menu was a brunch one so a little limited I felt or a salad option or small bites too would be ideal. But very good value for money, wide drinks menu and really relaxing atmosphere- would definitely go back!

    Fantastic meal at this place! They turned the prawn sandwich into salads for us without a problem. Perfect avocado on it, too! Waiters were attentive and very happy. Interior is really well done and interesting including the cool bar in the center. Great location, too.

    Nice place but service very robotic and not really that friendly. Wine list a joke. No age on any bottle. 150 for an amarone but no age on the list, same for all other wines. If you’re charging that for a bottle and putting amarone, barolo etc on the list put some more effort into it. Pizzas were good quality. Fries tasted awful. Fatty and tasted like re fried from cold. View over river lovely. Wouldn’t go back when so many other places that are more authentic and have service that feels like you are welcome.

    Great food. Lovely setup. Servers were top class. The servers were really busy so weren't easily available. But we're super friendly and wouldn't get exactly what you needed when asked. The restaurant is beautiful. Prices are very reasonable and portions don't leave you short changed.

    The design of the restaurant was quite a surprise - a happy one. The food was delicious and our server was very attentive. If you have the opportunity to eat here while in Dublin I highly recommend. A perfect way to spend the evening. I only wish I could have experienced more of the menu. The gnocchi was superb.

    The staff and place itself is very nice. We ordered pork belly for starter which was lovely. And had steak and seafood linguine for main. Stake was very bloody though we asked for medium well and it was tiny on a huge plate. There was no salad or even gravy on the side which was a bit disappointing as stake it self was €41. Pasta was nice, tho you can go wrong with pasta. Left the place still hungry 😅

    Good (fillet, sirloin) although one was v rare not medium rare.. Deserts poor quality and looked like they were a couple of days old. Something you’d expect on a busy Christmas work do, where the restaurant is mass catering..

    Arrived and was greeted and seated immediately. We noticed straight away that a very large, very loud party was on the go placed at seating in the bar area, making conversation difficult despite the restaurant not being full and the availability of plenty of rooms adjacent which would easily cater to a larger party and not disturb everyone else dining. Service was okay, if a bit pushy, but one can forgive that if it’s busy - it wasn’t. Drinks and food arrived piecemeal, members of our party often having to wait to get their drink or food while others already had theirs in front of them - there was only four of us, so not a big ask to have everything arrive simultaneously, especially as there were plenty of wait staff on shift. Food was edible though portion sizes were abysmal for the price asked. Mains were very disappointing, with all dishes being over-spiced (and we like flavourful food) and medium-rare steak arrived medium, bordering on medium-to-well. At least the company and the cocktails were good, though we provided half of that equation. All in all, having previously eaten at the venue a good few times, as well as Sophie’s and Angelina’s, all I can say is that the standards have slipped at Roberta’s, and we will not be back.

    One of the best restaurants we’ve been. Everything is 10/10. The food was absolutely gorgeous, and the service was excellent, all of them being so nice and polite. The place inside it’s lovely as well, great spot for a date. Prices are a bit higher than usual but it’s definitely all worth it!

    The outside of Roberta's is off-putting however the transformation inside is a wonderful surprise. The whole atmosphere was great. The staff were courteous happy and helpful. The food was delicious. I had the gnocchi and my husband had carbanara both dishes were mouth watering. Price very good value. Will definitely bring friends there

    We decided to try out Roberta's restaurant before going to a concert as it was recommended to me by a friend. When we arrived we were told we had to give back the table by a certain time, I knew this already because it was in the booking conditions,and as we were going on to the Concert it wasn't a problem for us. The restaurant was very bright and the decor was lovely, They have a good choice of food, and have a full pizza oven, if your a pizza fan. Food was good. We had a cocktail for desert which was not on the menu but they made for us anyway, it was delicious, The staff were very friendly. We had a lovely time.
