intimate venue with wonderful ambience, great wine list and tasty food, we always have the light small plates which works well if you are not wanting a huge meal. The service was outstanding and the team made sure it was a very COVID safe space.
It was like stepping back in time with a modern twist.. Can’t believe it’s been on my doorstep for years and I’ve never been before..!
Great background music, up market crowd, good choose of menu and nice restaurant/ bar layout.. I’ll be back..
Nice place and good value
Food great and service good
Fantastic place to enjoy a pre-dinner beverage. Service was excellent, and Mumm by the glass has my vote. Great atmosphere.
Such a fun spot for cocktails! Great service and atmosphere. The best cocktails!
Had a dinner reservation on Saturday night. It might be helpful to have someone regularly attending to people standing around or lining up at the door, there was a bit of confusion as to people with bookings, wait time for people wanting a drink etc. Nobody knew what to do. The door lady was just lovely and friendly. We had a booking, where I assume you have our name/contact details, but we were NOT asked to sign-in for Covid guidelines???? The ambience was fab, we love dim lighting and lots of noise. Service was great, cocktails divine. I probably would not dine again, probably just have cocktails and snacks. The food was fair. But, overall a fantastic bar, would love to return to drink and chat with friends.
Thanks for your review & for letting us know the confusion you experienced - we do have a staff member outside guiding guests & have clarified w/ staff to ensure that there is no ongoing confusion. With signing in, currently 1 guest per group is required to provide their details to register -this does change on 24/07 to all guests. As you already had provided your details through our booking system, we used these to sign your group in & add to the register. I'm sorry we didnt make this clear.
This was a surprise - very nice bar in potts point with a good vibe and great coktails . we booked for a birthday pre -drinks and it was really enjoyable . We didn't eat so I will rate the drinks and general atmosphere . Unfortunately the service was a little slow … but this may due to Covid19 measures implemented .
I recommend anyone to go there and if you taste the food , please rate it!
First time at the Roosevelt but definitely not the last. Meals were priced decently, minimal selection of drinks but curated well, and staff were great!
A really great night
Get hideout for a cold Sunday afternoon. Service was great!
The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Cocktails were delicious as well as the food. Would recommend
This place has been our lifeline during C19 and has kept us hydrated with the most amazing cocktails. It was fantastic to be there in person. The staff are great. The atmosphere is great. The cocktails are out of this world. A local gem 💎
Beautiful staff, vibe and delicious cocktails. Perfect after a long day!
Beverages are overpriced
I’ve already sent a detailed review directly to the restaurant

Was not our best experience here
This place is amazing ! The staff are awesome and the drinks are wonderful.
We had such a great night.
We didn’t eat there, next time we definitely will.
The food is amazing. Especially the chicken breast. But the drinks arw even better.
I love the intimate atmosphere of this restaurant. The food & cocktails are fantastic & with an extensive drinks list, you can really spend up a treat! We'll be back. :-)
Best cocktails in town! Try the nitro colada for dessert 😋
Love Roosevelt’s. Staff are always so friendly and try very hard to make our night perfect. It did seem a bit understaffed on NYE. We waited longer than usual for wine and food but enjoyed everything when it arrived. Loved our seating. It was a great night
Will definitely be back !
Hard to chat, VERY noisy. W thought Abe did stand-up comedy.
We had a lovely night, the food was great as were the cocktails. Service was hit and miss and quite slow even though the servers were all friendly. It was a night enjoyed by all and we would go back.
The food portions were small. The drinks are expensive.
We enjoyed a light meal and cocktails after the theatre. It was a very enjoyable experience with fantastic staff and an even better cocktail list! A fabulous step back in time to a very cool bar. Definitely worth a visit.
Loved the theatre around the cocktails !
So wonderful to be able to have a high class, high value restaurant which has preserved some of the historical ambiance and atmosphere of kings cross
The ambience and wait-staff were delightful. I was dining alone and it is hard to imagine a better stag experience. I plan to return within a week. The food was also delicious but the total experience was just nearly overwhelming. Delightful!
Terrible, terrible, terrible service ! We had a shocking Saturday night experience here. We are local Potts Pointers but not been to The Roosevelt for a while. We invited some friends to join us for Saturday night dinner. Food was overpriced and 2 meals came after 3 minutes and 20 minutes later the other 6 meals came. The service was shocking and even after going up to the staff twice to get service and try to pay it didn't change. To say we will not be back is an understatement !!!
Jamie our host was awesome. My partner and I had an amazing night with loads of food and drinks ;)
Such great ambience. The food was good, the cocktails splendid. The background music was way to high - this is after all not a nightclub...
Snappy service in a great space.
Good service and great cocktails- especially appreciated that they were quite quick with the drinks as we were heading out to a late dinner elsewhere
Wonderful evening, wine and food delicious and great atmosphere and service.
Would have received full marks if the roast potatoes hadn't run out.
Food – the fish was heavily over-salted and close to inedible.
Drinks – we had wines by the glass, the glasses were very small and the wines were expensive, compared to other similar restaurants.
Value – heavily overpriced overall.
Noise – excessive, impossible to hold a conversation.
Experience overall: Disappointing.
Fantastic atmosphere, great service,cocktails and food, would definitely go back.
Great atmosphere and even better cocktails. Perfect spot for a date night
Such a fun and vibrant space for a gathering. Some super fun cocktails a s staff that know their drinks. Awesome soundtrack too.
Another great lunch at the Roosevelt. We really love it here. Ticks all our boxes
Great service! Ben the manager was accomodating for my group and amateur photo shoot! Thank you! Food was delish, and cocktails are delightful! Must try the nitro colada!
Outstanding ambience with a great selection of drinks.
Great atmosphere, fabulous cocktails, excellent service
Delightful start pre theatre on our 20th anniversary
