We both loved the food. It was good honest cooking. Well seasoned and tasty. The staff were on point and there was no fuss from them. The open kitchen is an added bonus if you like cooking. I’m a cold creature by nature so the only point to add is it was a bit chilly at times when the door opened. Other than that, we’ll be back with some friends. Thanks again. Highly recommended.

The food was really good, and we were especially impressed with the cocktail menu and great value wine list. The design and ambience really added to the overall experience. We’ll be back (for some baked cheesecake - not sharing next time!)

This was my 4th time here. Always enjoy it. The fish specials are usually john dory or halibut (whats not to like!!!) Sunday brunch is also good. Glad we have a good local restaurant now.

Had to wait 50 minutes for starter to arrive

There was a large party of 20plus in and it caused delays for all the other diners, why book in such a large table if it throws the kitchen into disarray and all your other customers suffer?

That being said the food was fantastic especially the fried chicken, willing to give this place another chance, hopefully they can correct the service issues

I really enjoyed my first trip to Lorretas. The staff were very friendly and great. The food was delicious, the BBQ pork and Steak were our mains and they were both beautifully cooked and flavoured.

Lovely brunch for 4 people with mixed appetites and tastes including a vegan and a fussy teen. Efficient hostess, friendly bar staff and helpful and welcoming wait staff. Things that could be improved, with the understanding that this is still a new biz (3 months open): there is no phone number on the website; there is no sign on building exterior, nor is there a sandwich board so we missed it and took the wrong road crossing; the entrance door needs a thick curtain or some draught-catcher - we dined in our coats due to the wind every time someone arrived or left; after our meal we were disappointed that there was no espresso or cappuccino - perhaps we are all a bit spoiled now and expect good coffee everywhere - surprised that this was not in a place with such a great brunch menu. However good food, great staff meant a very good experience all round.

Very nice food, but way over priced extras, dessert and filter coffee should surely offer a refill? €48 for brunch for 2 people is too expensive. Very tasty nice food though

Love the decor. Personally think if you’re going for the American style bistro with only filter coffee on offer you should do free refills but otherwise was very impressed. Staff were so nice too & very accommodating for a buggy as well. Will be back.

Meal was fine but nothing exceptional and not particularly good value for what we got. Some of the tastes on our plates didn't go together particularly well but were fine. Room was fairly empty, we were surprisingly put in a corner beside a disconcerting mirror and moved ourselves to one of the many other and better free tables. One waitress was lively and excellent. Room was nice but a big expanse if not full as it wasn't. wouldn't object to going again but won't seek to revisit

We were looking for something new and boy did we find it. Friendly staff, great food and lovely ambiance. The decor is very New York loft, with some lovely touches, but it could do with a little softening up. Maybe some greenery or art on the walls. We will definitely me back again. Well done on a great new venture

Great place lovely staff and really buzzy. The famous chicken was a little too hot n rubbery. Maybe needed to rest more. Have a margarita it's the best in dublin, and that's saying something. Will absolutely go again and easily recommend. Did I mention the staff are lovely?

Food, staff and ambiance were all delightful. The chicken is to die for as was the steak.
One little issue was the cold wind blowing in from the front door. Pick your seat carefully until this is sorted.
We’ll be back though....

Had a lovely meal in Loretta's. Food was good, service was friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant although the music was a little too loud and hindered conversation at times. The tables are also very close together but on balance found it to be a great addition to the neighbourhood.
