The food was excellent and the staff was very nice, both discrete and caring. We had a great time at Roly's Bistro!
We were very comfortably seated, in a well spaced section, upstairs, and well separated from other diners. Lunch was delicious, up to the standard we’ve come to expect of Roly’s. Thank you fora very profession and warm service.
I met a friend for Christmas lunch - pleased to see restaurant was COVID safe - I had a feta salad which was delicious followed by really good salmon. The service was very attentive and friendly. I am a regular visitor to Rolys and based on my experience I will continue to go there - I have never been disappointed. One of the best restaurants in Dublin!
Really enjoyed our meal and experience at Rolys, would highly recommend
Was the third Sunday in a row we ate here and sorry due to lock down we won’t be able to get back as soon as we would like
Excellent from start to finish. Khan is an excellent maitre d’. Will
Roly's is a treat, great food, great staff, beautiful Restaurant
Good food - typical rolys experience- solid and dependable- just what you want now
Fantastic service from front desk to the table, food was amazing. Will definitely come back
Food was nice, Service was quick, but as I we were walking down the stairs could overhear the staff members talking about myself and my partner appearance and sharing opinions on what they thought of us but mostly my dress... (saying it was too short, they didn't like the detailing etc) which I felt was unprofessional and kind of ruined the experience for me as I thought it was good up until that point.
Excellent service and the food was perfect. Highly recommended
The servicing staff wore visors rather than masks which is against the regulation. Social distancing not observed in common areas and customers allowed walk around the restaurant without masks. The food was poor.
Excellent overall . A little expensive for lunch but really enjoyed the occasion .
Great service and attention.
The food is always good and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable.
Our Wedding Anniversary celebration that was cancelled due to COVID so eventually got there 05/12/2020. It was a fabulous, the food, Staff and cocktails 5 star
Really enjoyed our visit to Roly's. It was a lovely way to spend our first evening out since lockdown and the staff were so nice. They took care of all the covid precautions without any fuss. Great restaurant. X
It was great to back at Roly’s, better than ever.
Very relaxed comfortable dining room ... Dublin Bay Prawns were excellent...would definitely recommend.... will be returning
The first time ever I was disappointed. My prawns which normally are superb I believe we're reheated, we were waiting quite a while for the main course and I reckon these were cooked too early. At their prices I would expect them to be good
In general we were satisfied.
However the service,even allowing for the Covid situation, could have been better.
Long waits between courses
Steak ordered rare but had to be returned as it was more well done than rare.
The monkfish was somewhat over cooked and as such lost some of its taste : the sauce or marinate did not complement the taste but rather negated it.
Carafe wines both white and red were good.
The two other dishes were very good. Starters were also good.
Thank you Ernest C, We will be taking actions on your very welcome notes. Your experience seems less enjoyable than it ought to have been. Please when next planning to visit Roly's do email me so that I may meet you in person and make amends. Paul Cartwright email@example.com
Best restaurant in Dublin and never disappoints. Staff were fantastic with fast service
Thank you Brendan C, Delighted you enjoy Roly's, Best from, this evening, a very wet Ballsbridge. Khan
Service could have been more attentive
Thank you Roisin J, Your point is taken. There is never an excuse for inattentive service. We shall be taking action. Please do contact me if returning to Roly's. I can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org Paul Cartwright
Staff had terrible English and got orders incorrect. I am pregnant and therefore asked specifically for Medium fillet steak. It came out rare. We asked for extra fries for our child but they separated my husband's meal onto 2plates. Booked a high chair, had to ask 3 times on arrival for one. No children's menu and no baby change facilities anywhere onsite. Door to disabled door was broken and had to change a toddlers nappy standing up and the floor was filthy.
Too busy, too many people, poor ability to socially distance, abysmal service and highly dis organised.
Very very disappointing for Rolys and a place we as a family have been going for years. Won't be back for a long time
Good Evening Ericap, Please accept our most sincere apologies for your poor experience. Please do contact me personally at email@example.com . I promise we shall take action and make amends. Paul Cartwright
Roly’s was as good as ever. Fantastic food and great socially distanced buzz!
Thank you Tilly1 Khan
Overall very good could have done with more veg. Maybe could have spared more than 1 SMALL potatoe. ??
Glad you enjoyed JohnM, Apologies with regard to the vegetable portion. We will remind the team to enquire if more is required. Best from Roly's, Khan #staysafe
A really poor choice of wine by the glass. Glass of wine small and inspiring.
The cabbage was very tough and the puree carrot resembled baby food.
Good Evening Anna L, Goodness, we shall do some tastings on the wines by the glass and take action. We will do likewise with cabbage and carrot puree. Please if you are planning to return to Roly's do contact me personally and we shall make amends. Paul Cartwright #staysafe
Nice buzz about the restaurant while still being comfortably socially-distanced. Excellent food, great choices, and superb waitstaff. A delightful lunch.
Rolys is always a solid experience - food, ambience and occasion - one of the best places to go!
Great food, exemplary service and lovely atmosphere
we have gone to rolys once a month for the last 25 years and every single meal was perfect.we never once had to complain about anything.we will be back next month as usual.great food and service.well done.peter boden
We all had great meal and the food was delicious!!
Good welcome and atmosphere: a good “buzz” but able to hear across our table and not next door.
Slow to offer drinks and wrong drinks brought when eventually ordered. Correct drinks promptly brought after the mistake was pointed out.
Twice a waiter brought other tables food by mistake.
Food was good bistro standard and meat was cooked to our specification.
However, an enjoyable evening not spoiled by the wayward service.
Food was good, unfortunately service was disappointing. Waiting ages for wait staff to take order, etc. Most disappointing of all, it took about 30min for us to get the bill and pay. I had to go to the till to request it, only to be told to sit back down. Wait staff were rude and inattentive. Disappointing service which overshadowed the good food. I won't be back.
A small delay in getting our deserts and tea/coffee, overall great service, friendly and food was excellent.
Had a most enjoyable meal in Roly’s, despite being somewhat apprehensive about being in a restaurant at this time. Food and service were excellent.
Good service, food excellent, maintaining its reputation in stylish surrounds.
As always, food was delicious !! A pleasure to dine with you !
See you soon
First time here so did not know what to expect but we weren't disappointed.
The staff were so kind and attentive.
Social distancing rules were rigidly adhered to and the food was delicious.
Even our guests 3 year old very picky daughter cleaned her plate so I would highly recommend Rolys.
Food was good. Reliable as always. Service a bit cold. No real interaction or interest. Didn’t ask if children would like a drink. Just a bit cold.
We were greeted and seated by a very nice gentleman. Our waitress was fine, took our order promptly. No one came back to our table to see if everything was okay. Even when I was paying the bill the man never asked did we enjoy it. It was disappointing overall. None of us would be in a rush back.
