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 seated at a table that we quickly discovered was unstable and very wobbly and we immediately brought it to the attention of the (very friendly) staff. They tried unsuccessfully to fix it so we moved to the table beside it. Over the course of our meal, two other couples were seated at the table, the first couple asked to be moved too, and the second had difficulty with the table, and another staff member tried fixing it with a cork wedge (interrupting our meal because he was practically underneath our feet). The restaurant was not fully booked and there were plenty of empty tables throughout the evening. Paired with a very rowdy stag group right beside us, and mediocre food (risotto was too salty, veg lukewarm with steaks). Very slow drinks service, we ordered fresh drinks before our main course and were both nearly finished eating when they arrived (after bringing it to the attention of staff). Disappointed as it was an expensive night out to celebrate a birthday.

Second visit to Roberta's. My 1st experience was 6 weeks ago, and I was with a gang. I thought the venue was quirky and bright, with a good atmosphere. I ordered a pizza, but had to ask for it to go back to the Chef as the base was soggy. The second one came back much better. Perhaps the Chef was having a bad night.

Giving it a second go. Took two out of town friends there for the atmosphere. Said nothing about the food. We ordered 3 different pizza. All terrible. Soggy bases. No one ate them. Shame.

Robert's is a beautiful place, and worth your while if going to have just a drink, although prices are even more expensive than the already expensive dublin. The waiters were nice, but the food was so bad I will never eat there again. I took my friend for a meal for her 40th, we shared one starter which was just bland, but the lamb pasta e both got as a main was really bad. The cost of the meal was expensive, I don't mind paying but to pay for something that's really bad is not on. My advise to the chef would be " keep it simple and go back to basics" that's where i would start from.

Very cool place. Great atmosphere....I hate when you're in a restaurant and it's so quiet you're afraid to talk. Service was brilliant and food was lovely. Had the asparagus tortellini with truffle cream for starter and it was exceptional. Would definitely visit again. Great start to a night out

Great ambiance, food was good, choice was good but service could have been a little better. For a saturday night, it was the usual busy, however there were some empty tables. Table was booked for 7.30pm, party of 3 and only one of us had a starter. We didnt get the main until 9.30pm. I still enjoyed it and would go back.

The service was excellent, our table was ready when we arrived. Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. The portions are very large, and after we both had our starters (crispy fried prawns and risotto) we struggled to finish our main course, definitely no room for dessert. Our only criticism is that the noise level was too high to talk comfortably.

Food fantastic. Layout and décor fantastic. Only negative is probably the noise. This isn't some place to come for a quiet meal, if you have had a hard stressful day at work and just need some ambient relaxing background noise. We got lucky and had out meal at river facing side, which is quieter. Not sure they can do much about it with any softeners to buffer the sound. Despite all this I must have recommended the restaurant to at least 10 people in last 3 days.

First they wouldn’t put an egg on the pizza. Chef does not accommodate changes. The ravioli was pea and asparagus. Not a great combination and not tasty at all. The pizza came after an hour waiting and the cheese was hard as if it had been there for a while waiting to be collected by waiters. I only ate 3 slices and the waiter didn’t even enquire as to whether everything was ok with it. Very poor experience. We will not be back again.

I enjoyed my first visit here. Staff very pleasant, food excellent (except chips which were very 'bitty' and hardly tasted like a potato product) . Ambience was excellent and city center location is excellent. On the negative side, I thought the menu was somewhat overpriced, as was the drink, but I accept this is a location 'thing'. The noise level was dreadful as there was a large group at a nearby table which included several 'loud' children. While I have no problem with children in restaurants, I do think that some soft furnishings (maybe curtains?) would help absorb the harshness of the noise.
I also do not think that , as an older person, I am not your target audience?
However, I will return, thank you.

I've been to Robertas several times before but I definitely noticed it is not as good as before. We got bloody marys (€11), no celery, no spice, just tomato juice and vodka- a bit cheeky calling it a cocktail. I had had the bloody marys here last year and it was one of the reasons i went back as they were super
The food was grand but overpriced- 16.50 for eggs Benedict. the potatoes were nothing like before, no where near as delicious.

We waited about 10 minutes to have our orders taken, when we had to actually stop a waiter and ask them if we could order now. We also had to ask him then if we could order drinks as no one had come to take our drinks order.

I ordered the pepperoni pizza which was soggy and bland. However, my two friends ordered other pizzas and said they were lovely. I was just disappointed in mine as a pepperoni pizza is always a good choice as it is hard to get wrong.

Overall, not thrilled about the experience with the food and the service but the place is nicely decorated and the drinks were tasty.
