Food fabulous. Ambience nice. Service good, particularly under the Covid circumstances. Noise levels noisy but normal, expected and enjoyed for a 'buzz' Friday evening. Fillet at €28.00 ver pricy. I had the striploin at €20.00 which was sumptuous. My partner too, was very pleased with her chicken. They accomodated a 21:30 booking and earned an overall 4 stars. Price is the factor to not award a 5th star.

all portions where perfect size and food was fresh and so tasty excellent presentation. cocktails great value fast and tasty desserts presented beautifully also. really helpful and friendly staff. comfortable spacious seating with sanitisers on each table and distancing. the place was also ventilated, clean toilets too.
it is a bit pricy but its definitely worth it for a date night or special occasion.
really nice decor and cool lighting and mirrors.
brought out a small dessert with a candle as id mentioned it was my boyfriends birthday. couldn't fault any part of the experience. i will and have already recommended it to friends !
also the waiter said they could make any cocktail they had the ingredients for at the bar and my boyfriend was delighted they could make him a whiskey sour !

The decor and space in Robertas is amazing and although the menu isn't hugely extensive, they have a well thought out list of choices with something for everyone. What we had was delicious and the service considerate without being in your face. I really like the vibe in this place and will definitely go again !

Nice evening, but too noisy in the restaurant.
the staff were making an effort to comply with Covid requirements but I feel it was overbooked as social distancing want possible in the bathrooms etc
The menu is clearly designed to make max profit for the venue as the difference between the price of pizza and meat / fish main courses means that everyone was eating pizza.

This was a Monday night date night and the evening didn’t disappoint.
We were seated promptly, all social distancing guidelines were clearly in place and being acted upon.
We were greeted quickly and a cocktail and wine order taken.
Food was flavorful and there was great choice on the menu!
This was an evening that saw a lot of young people who seemed to be out celebrating Leaving Cert results. Although all the girls seemed to be in one large group they were seated at separate tables and staff did an amazing job at catering to them while still taking care of other diners.
We finished up with some pints and cocktails and the staff not only were friendly and very good at hospitality but also had great whiskey/ scotch knowledge which was impressive! Thanks
For a great night!

Setting was fab. Staff were friendly but not attentive, seemed too little staff for the amount of customers so they looked very stressed and busy. Food was tasty but basic. If it says leaves and tuna, you get leaves and tuna and nothing else. The price was outrageous. My partner got 2 pancakes with maple syrup from an old bottle for 15euro! Really is extremely over priced so for that reason, we won't be going back but probably nicer to go for a cocktail or two in the evening.

Had a lovely meal. Food is good but nit perfect. What makes the place great is the staff. Very friendly and professional. Great atmosphere. The only negative was groups of girls hanging around in the loos taking photos. Very hard not to be on top of each other so no social distancing possible.

The restaurant aesthetically was nice and the service was good, however, it is quite expensive for the food you get. The food was nice but nothing exceptional. I wouldn’t be pushed to return.

Hi Sean , Thanks so much for your feedback. Our prices are a reflection of the city centre location, the fantastic quality produce, and highly experienced team of staff that we employ and as such are not something that we can reduce without diminishing the product that we very proudly serve here. Sorry to hear you won't be joining us again. Kind regards Ciaran

Went here for brunch, but ended up getting the BBQ Jacob's Ladder. Super tasty, the beef melted in my mouth and the portions were hefty. The cocktail was a bit heavy on the syrup, could've done with more of a gin kick, but all in all, a great meal, nice bright environment and friendly staff. Will be back.

Our experience in Robertas was less than what we expected. The wait times for the arrival of drinks and food was surprising. We waited almost 50 minutes for food to arrive. €34 for a small steak with 4 grape size potatoes.. a bit steep.
After struggling to get the attention of any waiters, we then ordered another round of drinks conscious of not exceeding our time limit. The waiter came with the drinks after 10/15 mins and spilled every single drink all over a member of our group and onto jackets and handbags which were also on the seat.
We were offered no form of discount or free drinks as an apology for this major inconvenience and had to ask our waiter for this. We did receive a discount but considering the price of the bill already for a group who had all ordered €34 steaks we thought this might’ve been given without asking.
As a result I would be apprehensive about booking Robertas again.

The staff couldn't be faulted , my partner and I both had pizza and to be honest the base was a little soggy on both dishes. It was pretty busy considering we had an early booking which added to the atmosphere. However we each had one drink and left as soon as we finished our food, the reason for this is that the venue was absolutely freezing. We had intended on a bottle or two of fizz with dinner as it was an anniversary, but due to the fact it was necessary for us to dine with our coats on for the duration we decided to eat quickly and leave

The restaurant was under staffed and the gap between ordering and delivery of the first course was 15/20 mins. The second course took 20mins from clearing to delivery of the next course. As a result we exceeded the 90mins limit and so decided to skip the desert course. Also, I ordered a pre-dinner drink of Bacardi and Coke, they had no rum of any kind. I ordered a glass of wine when my main course arrived, it took 10-15mins to arrive. The two guys on the floor were flat out, I cannot fault them at all and at all times they were friendly and as attentive as they could be be.

I saw one of the kitchen staff sitting on the counter where the food was being finished before going to the table.

The men’s toilets could have done with a tidy.

Sorry to be picky... I liked the food, these are just things that let the venue down.

Would I recommend the venue to others....? Yes, but only because I understand most restaurants are just emerging from the COVID19 lockdown and we are all trying to adjust. But even is there was a third staff member on the floor it would have made a big difference.

The pizza was lovely, the rest of the food was a bit overpriced given it’s not a proper restaurant and more casual. Lovely interiors all the same and cocktails were grand..social distancing measures were good..service was a bit slow but might be due to covid

Service was v good but the food was below average - the menu was only ok, nothing stood out to us. The gnocchi was over-cooked and the sea bass was burnt giving off a distinctive flavour. The measure of whiskey was surprisingly good, normally in Dublin I find that they are watered down. The room we were placed in was to the in the left of the bar - there was a weird smell in that room & it was stuffy which I found odd considering the circumstances. The room was also very very loud - not from good music unfortunately but from a large table of women (I know this can’t be controlled), I would have liked to have been seated elsewhere while on a date.

Had an amazing time at Robertas tonight! Vegetarian pizza was lovely with huge and filling portions 100% worth the price paid. Had dessert aswell which was very good also! Our server was lovely and had a cocktail made for us that wasn’t on the menu! The decor and ambience in the restaurant is stunning and they have an indoor smoking area which is very unique . Will definitely be returning !
