    I did not enjoy the food, the pizza to me was not great at all. The rest of the food dishes was ok but nothing to write home about. The prices was fair so I can’t complain about that but nevertheless I was expecting better food. I do give the service 5 stars the waiter that served us was very good, now I did see he was getting stretched as the tables were filling up but in mine opinion he did a wonderful job.

    It’s aesthetically a very nice place but the food is average if even, we got fries to share as a side and they tasted like they been re-heated in a microwave! Service was fine but we did wait a while before anyone took our order! Also it’s super super loud, like I wouldn’t go there to have a meal and a catch up, we were literally shouting across the table at each other, probably wouldn’t go back!

    Nice atmosphere, lovely interior, waiter nice to begin with. Waitress forgot to put through our order and was only checked up on after over an hour of waiting for food so ate after an hour and a half. No discount or anything offered so not the best service overall. Food was a bit pricey

    We arrived with s booking and the place was not busy. We ordered cocktails and food. Cocktails were delicious and the staff were incredibly friendly. Starter came out promptly and tasted amazing but the main was over 45 minutes later. I had to ask twice where the food was. We were offerer a round on the house which we appreciated. However when the food arrived it was luke warm and the steaks over cooked. We didn't say anything at the time because we didnt want to wait any longer

    Roberta's is a beautiful venue, the menu is decent, cocktails delish, but the service is poor. The staff are disinterested and unfriendly. I constantly needed to grab the waiting staffs attention. Not once did they ask us if we needed anything even when our glasses were empty. It's a shame because it's the only thing that let Roberta's down but it's a huge factor in me deciding I'll probably never return!

    Service wasn’t great although food was very tasty. Order was taken very quick and all together drinks and food. They served us the mains before the starter and we ordered a side of chips which they forgot about. We had to ask twice. They did not check on us if everything was alright with food or drinks, and at the end when we finished our meal they brought the check and we felt a bit of pressure for leaving. We might have had a drink after but looked like they wanted us to leave. Spicy pork pizza was delicious, I wouldn’t ask again for the tortellini starter, too small portion for the price. Truffle chips are very nice but I would ask for extra sauce. It’s a nice place for friends gatherings or parties. For a romantic date I would go somewhere else.

    In all my years working in hospitality and regularly dining out, have never experienced a more horrific failure in customer service. I was basically told off by the manager for making a complaint about poor service and a rude waiter. I wanted to order a drink at the bar since I couldn't get anyone's attention (manager and co-worker chatting away with backs turned to us whole time), the waiter at the bar would not assist in ordering my drink when I explained that I couldn't order, made a rude gesture and comment to me, then stormed off. Complained to the manager and was told he didn't need to give me an explanation after he spoke with this waiter. We were then threatened by the manager that police will be called if we continued with our complaint, which blew my mind away. Our party left without eating and even paid for the drinks we did not finish. Manager did nothing to try de-escalate the situation. I will be making a full complaint to PressUp group which is the conglomerate that owns this restaurant, but I'm not hopeful anything will get resolved. Attached proof of receipt that we were actually there.
