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.

We were celebrating my daughters 19th birthday. We had 4 steaks which were not tender and badly cooked. The potatoes were over cooked. I had also requested a birthday cake which they totally forgot. Very disappointed

Great food, great service, two hour sitting was a bit rushed (but to be fair it is December) but otherwise it was a lovely meal. Very accommodating to my friend with a nut allergy, no issues with tweaking the dishes to suit her! Will definitely go again!

We were expecting a christmas lunch menu but got a very poor brunch menu instead and the food itself was just about ok
There was a large groupopo of men seated beside us and we could barely hear ourselves talk
The staff were pleasant

I had a friends Christmas party here on Saturday day from 1pm and it was a lovely setting for it. Everyone really enjoyed their food and I would definitely go back. In fact I am booked in for dinner at the end of the month already.

The service was amazing and it's a lovely setting. The food was just so bland and overcooked though.

I had the breakfast muffins, they were dry beyond belief. I'm a regular customer in Dollard and Co and the breakfast muffin served down there is much nicer. My friend had the burger and it too was so dry and the bun fell apart which would indicate it was not fresh.

I'm not one to complain and I will be back again as maybe the kitchen had an off day but honestly, the food was not good on the day in question.

The place is very nice, great decor. But the food was expensive and not that impressive to be honest. Me and my friends had brunch, I had a Eggs benedict which was alright, but their burger was really dry. They needed the table after a few hours, which is understandable for this time of the year, but a heads up that this could happen would have been great, we thought we were fine since the place wasn't packed. The cocktails were great. In the end, you pay more for the ambient than the food itself.

I was in Roberta’s with a group on a Friday and we were seated in one of the private rooms which was beautiful had a set menu which was a bit pricey at €45 for 3 courses but given it’s in temple bar probably typical Dublin price. Food and wine both really good.
I was back with a friend on Sunday much quieter we were there early service not great we were forgotten about a few times! We had pizzas they were good but nothing amazing and they are pricey for pizza. We shared a desert these are also expensive at €8-9.
Lovely venue and on the Friday night was busy and good atmosphere but it is pricey.

From the outside give much to the place but when you go upstairs you are amazed by a super modern bar/restaurant. Went there for Sunday brunch and had a great time. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was good and at reasonable prices. Will certainly go again for lunch or dinner.

We enjoyed a lovely evening with friends over from New York, they really liked the fool and loved the atmosphere and the surroundings, they agreed very "New York" style, which was why I chose Robertas, had eaten here before and had a good night.

I had the tuna which was lovely, portion size small enough, but very tasty. The americans had the rib eye which they devoured! another in the party had salmon, which she said was beautiful, my husband had pizza which he said was very average. Sides were tasty, crispy fries and lovely baby potatoes in a cream sauce.
Loved the cauliflower, could have been larger portion also.
Dessert menu wasnt very exciting, and nobody chose anything, we had skipped starters to have dessert, but nothing appealed to us.

Coffees were good, service friendly and patient, and front of house very nice too.

I would return again.

Nice food but seemed short of staff.
Our waiter was very pleasant but seemed too stretched and we went long periods without attention. The restaurant missed out on at least 1 full round of drinks because of time lapses of him coming back to us.

I really enjoyed the food here and the cocktails were lovely. The only thing that was annoying was that we were rushed off of our table after the two hour mark. I appreciate if it was really busy and people were waiting for the table but we were at the bar finishing our drinks and the table we left was still empty about 40 minutes later when we were leaving.

Lovely venue. Very noisy. A bit chaotic. Our waiter had a bad attitude. I moved my seat to sit closer to person I was with and he asked me rudely to move it back so I wouldn't be in anyone else's way. I asked the other clientele around me and they said it was no bother at all. Way over prized for the moderately good food.

First visit, I booked it for a group of girlfriends who wanted to escape the suburbs and go 'out out' on an early Christmas night! It certainly delivered, we felt like we were in New York. Had aperitifs at the bar, enjoyed the buzz. The pals loved the place which was a great relief! Our meal was delish...all agreed. The staff were lovely too.
Will definitely be back and I'd say all the gals will be recommending Roberta's. Personally have looked up other venues in your group and will check out in the future as like the decor and ambience. Tx Ger

Loved discovering Roberta's on our trip to Dublin. We wanted a good meal - not more fish and chips - and Roberta's delivered! The linguine with prawns and mango was wonderful. Light and tasty. The salmon was also very good. We went on a Sunday evening so it was relatively quiet. However it is a very large place and there was a DJ setup - so I suspect it can get pretty loud!

I went to Robertas on Saturday evening for a meal with my friends for my birthday.
The food was lovely as usual and the service was fantastic.
Everything was exactly as we asked and the waiter who looked after us was so attentive and efficient.
They also picked up through conversation it was my birthday and had a lovely surprise at the end of the dinner.
