    This restaurant has creative Italian inspired cuisine served in an attractive relaxed farmhouse environ with thoughtful attentive waiters. Unlike places like, say, Topping Rose, that have higher prices but deliver less than their hype promises, this deserves to be better known.

    I have been to Robert's many times, even on special evenings like birthdays or anniversaries. Tonight was a deal breaker though. We were seated in the back room and there were two tables of four that were literally screaming and it's a very "bouncy" sound room. No carpeting or tablecloths or any sound absorbers. In any case we complained several times as did the couple next to us and the staff honestly didn't care. Seems the loud tables were friends of the staff. I hope they eat there often enough to support the business because after recommending this place to MANY friends over the past decade, I will never go back. What happened to customer service? The host actually said to me "it'll be quieter when they leave"!

    letotherscookVIP
    Dined on 7/21/2014
    We drove past Roberts for years, and finally tried it this week. It's a truly lovely restaurant with very good food. Atmosphere is that of an old barn, simple and clean, with a small but pleasant area for outside dining. It was a Monday, so not that crowded, but I imagine it would be fairly noisy if full. I had a fantastic pasta bolognese and my husband said his duck was among the best he ever had. Service was attentive. I had heard service could be snooty, but didn't find that to be true at all. It is fairly pricey -- although no more so than other upscale Hamptons restaurants -- so would probably make this more of a special occasion choice. Still, a great find amid the ever-changing list of local places out here.

    Had never seen Roberts and wondered where it was. You cannot see it from road, so that explained why we had never seen it. Visited on a Friday night. Food was excellent. We sat inside and there was definitely a much older crowd. Was also noisy. Every table in the place was taken. When leaving we noticed some younger people were seated outside. May do that next time. Steak cooked to perfection. Grilled sea scallops were light and delicious. Pasta Bolognese was terrific. Desserts are out of this world!!

    Robert's has always been a great destination. Some new menu items (try the shrimp scampi) make it even better. Can be loud (low ceiling) if there is a crowd and a noisy table (it happens, unfortunately, everywhere in the Hamptons), but generally Robert's is restful and relaxing. The service is about as good as you'll find anywhere.

    We eat at Robert's often. Late on a quiet Tuesday, the food was as inviting and varied as on the weekends, the service was meticulous and (as always) very friendly, and the charming setting was inviting even with very few other diners. We felt relaxed, even a little pampered.

    So many people return to Robert's over and over again. One is always assured of a warm welcome whether it's your first, second or 50th time. We don't go there often -- the prices are way high -- but we always love it when we do. The food is incredible and inventive and the busy vibe is just right. Although I would probably stay away in the summer when the wanting to see and be seen crowd takes over. The arugula and parmesan salad is just fabulous and plenty for 2.

    Robert's always invents new and wonderful dining experiences. Last night's dinner was an homage to Spring. Always using the freshest ingredients, Robert creates wonderful inventive dishes never disguising the true tastes by adding too many adjectives to each special course. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant which maintains it's highest standards after so many years in the area.

    Understated, charming and welcoming, this previously high-priced (and worth it) country-inn like jewel has a winter menu that is both reasonably priced and delicious. On weekdays, the place is quiet and cozy, and both the host (Eric) and server (Christian) will make you feel like a very special guest. On weekends it's livelier, but still warm and charming. Try the osso buco, if they are serving it the night that you come.

    Wonderful experience. Honored reservation time as soon as we arrived. Noise level is fine. We could hear each other speaking which is not the case for many other restaurants in the area. Our guests were very happy and enjoyed their food---especially the osso buco. The filet of sole was delicious. The portions are very generous! I would definitely recommend this special restaurant with great ambience.
