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.

Most unimpressed with the service. We were advised we would only have the table for two hours despite the restaurant being empty for half the night. Server leaned directly over everyone whilst attending table. Order was incorrect and when correct food was given it was cold. Overpriced bar food. Bar is nice and trendy but I would stick with the drinks.

It is a very good restaurant, excellent food, good service, beautiful venue, the only issue for me are the starters, I found them very expensive, 3 croquettes 11 euros, 3 goat cheese balls 12 euros, for me this is more a side than a starter, there were not salads for starters. But overall is a good restaurant to go

The food was a massive let down. Nobody enjoyed their mains. The service and the drinks were good and the place looks great but would not recommend as it is pricey for a very average meal.

The service in Roberta’s was really bad, we were there for my birthday brunch and there was very little option on the menu. Trying to order a drink was a nightmare, the place was not the busy and yet we would be waiting 10mins at times to get the attention of one of the servers. We were told we could sit until 4.30 and at 4.10 we were asked to pay our bill and if we wanted to get a drink we would have to go to the bar where we also were not getting served. Over all not a great experience and won’t be rushing back.

Great menu .. amazing building and decor .. but food was barely lukewarm when served and service VERY VERY poor and it was a Wednesday evening and not very busy .. When we had to ask for the bill a second time the waiter barked his reply - it was actually quiet embarrassing as I had friends visiting from out of town. Will return for drinks perhaps but definitely not for the dining experience.

Wonderful ambience and exceptional service from our very charming waiter. Wine menu fantastic and those of us who had cocktails are still raving about them. The location is fabulous and the decor has been beautifully planned and executed. It was a very busy Saturday night when we went with a group of 7 and I would like to try it again with a more intimate group on a less busy evening as I do feel the kitchen may have been rushed a little bit. Please do not get me wrong the food was lovely, but I would like to visit again for a more relaxed paced evening all around. Overall it was a lovely experience and I very much look forward to returning and recommend this trendy new spot.

We had a lovely meal here and I would definitely go back. The decor is fab and the service was very good. The beef croquettes for starters were delicious. My husband had the rib eye and really enjoyed it. I had the surf and turf, the steak and prawns were fab but I do think it was a pity that it was covered in so much hollandaise sauce as it took from the meal. Desserts were fab too.

The venue looks fine, location is central and staff is ok too.

My main issues with the place are a) I requested a small birthday dessert and they forgot, b) food portions while pricey are ridiculously small and finally c) aperol spritz is mostly load of prosecco with ice.

Good food - service is lacking. We paid in cash and the waiter and/or front of house assumed we were giving a 25% tip; never returning our change. Seems they were understaffed as once our food arrived there was no further check up from floor staff on our table until we had to call them for more water.

Hi. We brought our friends here Sat night.

This is my second visit to Roberta’s.
The first visit was v good as our waiter was exceptional. Our food was cold that night but the waiter dealt with it all v well.

The second visit, on Sat night, our waiter was Not friendly and a bit abrupt. I spoke to the manager on duty who helped with the situation. Our veg were cold. The soup only warm. To be honest the venue is fabulous. But both visits, cold food and the waiters Manner just finished it off.

V disappointing .

Said I wouldn’t go back the last time. But gave it another go. Awful food. Terrible service, to the point of having to look for staff. Overpriced poor food. Nice interior but now feels out-of-fashion, followed a trend that now looks so lame.
