My friends...in Dublin for one night only...wanted nothing more than a pint of Guinness. But this restaurant (with a full bar) does not serve it..OK , fine.
Our booking was for 21.00...we got our main meals at 22.30.
Gobbled our food down...starving...paid and left ...but by the time we got out of the restaurant, every single pub in the centre of town was closed, and we had no choice but to go home!
No pint of Guinness for my friends getting back on a plane to leave the country early the next morning.
They the grace to acknowledge our extremely long wait for our food, refunded 10% of the meal....but really , a mortifying disaster of a night.
.... never again, never again, NEVER AGAIN!

Hi, Thanks for the feedback and apologies again for the delay with food. Our pizza oven had some issues Friday night leading to huge delays. Kind regards Ciaran

Me and my boyfriend went to Roberta’s for brunch. We booked an outdoor table and even though there were 2 available outdoor tables when we got there, they sat us inside. It was a bit disappointing since we wanted to sit outdoors. Food was very good, however, the service could be better.

Booked a table at Roberta’s for my birthday, they totally forgot about it even after my friends reminded on the spot and asked for a little cake.

Sad.

Food was great. Wouldn’t recommend for dates because too noisy

In these times I don't like leaving negative reviews and there was nothing too wrong here. Positive was the service was very good. Attentive, friendly and helpful. Food was OK. Pork starters were quite poor though. 3 tiny ( and I mean tiny ) pieces of pork in a rather bland watery sauce with accompanied with charred lettuce. Menu needs a better descriptions of this bland entree. Best avoided at all costs. Mains were good though with good pasta and very good pizza. Limited range of desserts so we all passed on this as nothing jumped out. Drinks were also good with delicious cocktails. Overall it was a little on the pricey side for what was on offer and we were left a little underwhelmed.

My self and my friends went during a holiday to Dublin for a boozy brunch but were not very impressed there was a different menu than advertised on the website and my friend wasn’t able to eat anything on it which is why we specifically read menus before booking waiters were not very accommodating and there was very little atmosphere however the food itself and the cocktails were good although very small for the price

Starters were very expensive for what they were. An insult to call the salad a crab salad. The crab was so thin and few it had dried out, awfully disappointing. The medallion pork was vert miserly too.
Roast potatoes were oily and inedible. Linguine was lovely, baked cheesecake was yum. Seabass and brocolettes yum too. But tarnished by the starters very mean portions of protein.

Hi Maebhk, Thank you so much for your honest review, as it helps us delivering a better service each day. I am really happy you enjoyed our seabass, linguini and cheesecake and we will work to make our starters better for the next time you come. Thiago C.

We were having a special family treat - initially we were seated in a dark area away from other guests and while I couldn’t say that the host was nice about it, we moved to another seat in a lighter area with other diners. Once we did, our experience improved dramatically, we had a great waiter who served us nice drinks and lovely food. Disappointingly though, as we were leaving, we said goodbye and thank you to the host who didn’t raise her head from an iPad or acknowledge us.

Service was very slow and menu was limited to breakfast even though it was lunch time, so very limited in the food options available. The ambience and staff were nice but overall wasn’t too pleased.

Amazing food, cocktails and service at Roberta’s this evening. So impressed with service more than anything.

The food was fantastic but the feeling of welcome, not being rushed, detailed service and lovely and attentive service from Marcella ( we think this is her name!), was amazing and we had the best friend reunion with no feeling of being under pressure from covid restrictions and timing out ect.

First time since restrictions lifted that we felt ‘normal’ while still feeling safe with great covid safety at the restaurant and with the staff and seating.

Highly recommended and would encourage anyone to chose Roberta’s for a night out, we will be back many times more.

Thank you!

Not great, we were put at a table which is clearly for two people, there was not enough space for 3. My friend kept having to duck everytime the waiter squeezed over her with a tray. We were seated and waited 20mins before we could order. The eggs in my eggs Benedict were hard, I'm guessing because they were waiting under the heat lamp for too long before being brought out. It was a disappointment overall, won't be coming back for brunch.

Brunch was great, food was delicious and good options for sweet and savoury but took 45mins for food to be served for our table of two. Was sitting on the outdoor seating and there was a really loud fan or mechanical noise coming from the walls so was very difficult to hear the other person speaking.

We booked for outdoor dining and there is a fan or generator somewhere above this area. It blows cold air and it’s so loud you can barely hear anything else! Also at times there would be strong gushes of air! It was so cold and I felt like the food got cold so fast because of this. Other than that the food and service is good. But just don’t book outdoors

Do not book in the outside area. It's under some type of exhaust fans that are so loud you can barely hear anyone talk.

I love Roberta's for the look and feel, but, unfortunately, the meals there are a bit disappointing. Last time I had steak and not only it was dry, but there were no vegetables to accompany, even as a side dish. Plus, I had an upset stomach afterwards. Normally, I don't leave reviews, but it is not the first time I felt disappointed with the food there.

The food was incredible! We booked for the outdoor terrace not knowing there was a constant loud generator/fan that took away from ambience. Given how spacious the restaurant is with very high ceilings we wish we had booked for indoors. However, given how amazing the food, cocktails and service was, we still enjoyed ourselves. Next time, and there will be a next time, we will book indoors.

We did not enjoy Robertas at all, the restaurant itself is lovely but everything from the food to service was dismal to say he least, the manager was pleasant enough but the rest of staff were rude. The Menu was limited and boring, the food presentation was laughable. There is zero pride in this restaurant either on the floor or in the kitchen. We won’t be back…
