    My husband and I visited Roberto's for drinks and were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, drinks were great and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. We spent the evening at the bar and had a couple of cocktails each as well as a bite to eat. There is a smoking and non-smoking area. However, they are not clearly defined. The cocktails were delicious and very well presented, the selection of bar food was limited. We highly recommend the Pavarotti signature cocktail if you have a sweet tooth and Basil Rosca if you are a fan of gin. The prices are definitely on the higher side but we didn't feel that it was overpriced for the quality of the drinks. The only comment is for staff to remember to offer valet parking ticket validation. Sadly resulting in us having to return to the restaurant to get our ticket stamped. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely come back.

    I was visiting my friend in Dubai for the weekend and we booked a table at Roberto's as he had heard good things. The service from start to finish was superb. We were able to book a table quickly and easily and we received a courtesy call on the day of our meal. When we were at the restaurant the staff were really professional and we felt well looked after throughout. The staff were efficient and friendly and the visit was well paced. My friend ordered the lamb and this was really well cooked and nice and tender. I had the seafood risotto and that was delicious. We both had desserts which were really good quality and well presented. The atmosphere was great in the restaurant and there was a separate smoking area. The restaurant was really well looked after and very clean. We really enjoyed the meal and we recommend that others go.

    My husband and I visited Roberto's during the week for lunch and ate from the Business Lunch menu; this was excellent value for money. The staff were incredibly friendly and efficient, which is particularly important for lunch time visits when many people are restricted on time. All the lunch time menus offer a wide variety of options from salads to steaks, pasta to pizza. Apart from the wagyu beef dish, which was a little too salty, the starters, mains and desserts were all delicious, using excellent quality food with particular attention to flavour - the sorbet was the best flavoured sorbet we have ever experienced. The ambience of the restaurant was relaxed but elegant and the staff were very professional and smartly presented. The large floor to ceiling windows offer great lighting and excellent views of the Burj Khalifa. We had a very enjoyable experience at Roberto's and would certainly recommend it. The prices are at the mid to high end, but in line with the area and attracting business people for lunch and after work gatherings. Overall Roberto's exceeded expectations with exceptionally well flavoured food, a beautiful setting and attentive, friendly professional staff who work hard to give you a great experience.

    We visited for lunch on the weekend and the service was simply excellent. We were greeted immediately and our waiter Tulsi was very attentive, friendly and polite. At no point were we left wanting for anything. He recommended various starters, one of which we selected (the Melanzane) and which was indeed delicious. Our waiter recommended this could be shared between two of us and he was correct. We had the Carbonara and the Risotto with Scallops and Asparagus as main courses. These were delicious and rich in flavour. The presentation was neat and appetising. We selected apple tart for dessert on which our waiter complimented our decision confirming that it was a good choice. He was not wrong as this was immaculately presented and tasted even better. The manager visited our table to check that we were happy which was a nice touch. Another member of staff also checked on our table after we had ordered the starters to make sure that we had been taken care of. The service today was faultless. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone. It is smart with a lovely decor and pleasant ambience. The prices are on the higher end but the food is of excellent quality.
