The time to get food was really long - the lay out of the restaurant was poor and cramped and asked to move table as cold draught - food choice not great and when arrived it was not very good - poached eggs were hard and not as expected and prawns on bread just looked heaped on- always loved this restaurant but would think twice to spend 70 euros for brunch that was disappointing for my birthday

Went for brunch.The food and drinks were lovely and good value. Great atmosphere & the staff were very nice and friendly, however we were waiting a very long time for service. Waiting about 45 mins for our order to be taken. Apart from that it was a great experience!

Although the front of house worker was very polite, our waitress was extremely rude, she rolled her eyes at us twice. We were squished into the corner less than a foot apart from the other tables on either side. I brought the issue to the front of house worker and he was very polite and accommodating and moved us to a more open spot. The waitress continued to be rude throughout the whole meal. She took our drinks order 35 minutes before closing. 20 minutes later, the drinks still weren’t there so I politely reminded her incase she had forgotten. She rolled her eyes and rudely said that they were on the way. 15 minutes later she came over with the bill and said the bar was closed and that are drinks order had been cancelled. We had to ask 3 times to see a dessert menu, and no one came to take our order so we couldn’t have dessert either. We have been to this restaurant many times and we usually love it. Unfortunately this experience was so bad, we have both agreed that we won’t be returning. I understand it’s difficult times with covid but the seating so close is completely unsafe and uncomfortable.

Was there Saturday night food was lovely but service was very poor. Ordered/ asked about our drinks I say five times and only had one for the whole meal. Our waitress wasnt very friendly when we asked about our drinks.

The food was significantly delayed - our sense was the place was extremely understaffed for the number of customers. Due to the delay however, we did get a drink on the house and a discount on the bill which reflected the delays. We appreciate it may be Covid related but if not, the restaurant needs to consider the number of staff on duty.

Roberta’s is a stunning restaurant and the food was delicious however we found the service could be improved on. It was difficult to order a drink as there were very few waiters on the floor. When we asked to order our last drink, admittedly at 8pm, we were refused it despite many tables starting their meals, drink orders being taken at other tables and the bar staff preparing drinks. Overall we enjoyed ourselves but the waitress we encountered at the end of our meal, who was quite rude and clearly eager to end her shift, tainted our experience.

The table service was appalling, I think we had someone to our table 3 times in the 3 hours we spent there, very difficulty trying to get attention of wait staff. The food was nice but not piping hot. I wouldn’t usually be someone to complain but this is somewhere I definitely would not go back to.
