    I came from Nassau County on a friends recommendation, and could not have been more impressed with Robert's restaurant. Friendly staff, my table was ready upon arrival, prompt service, and a spectacular menu. I had the salmon dish and it was cooked perfectly, my companion had the free range chicken and was entirely happy with it and the large portion dessert. Thank you for the great dining experience, we will be back.

    When my sixty-ish female self and female friend went to Robert's for dinner last night in Water Mill. NY, the maitre d' asked a waitress if she would like to serve us, and she declined. We were then given a decent table by the quick-to-recover maitre d' (no quarrel there) but only learned by overhearing our newly-assigned waiter read a list of specials to a mixed-gender, young couple that there were specials on offer; we had already ordered from the regular menu. The food was good, but we ended by thinking that our neck of the Hamptons had a long way to go in serving older women without male dining partners. We had hoped for better.

    I had A fabulous dinner Saturday night. The night started its a drink at the bar, which was so much fun. The food was off the charts, waitstaff was attentive and professional. The noise level is a bit high but it's an old farm house and wouldn't change a thing.

    This is a snooty place, with valet parking all year round, even though the parking lot is right there. There is a $20 extra charge for sharing a plate. Plus, if you are at your table a minute longer than 2 hours, you are literally shooed out. The food was very good and the waiter was a sweetie. Be prepared that most of the dishes are in the $30s and some in the $40s. It was not a comfortable dining experience.

    Excellent food in a very elegant yet relaxing atmosphere. In my last visit, service lacked individual attention. Had to call waiters attention, had to pour our own wine and were not asked if needed any thing but was very quick bringing my check. After I asked for it. This is a rare occurrence as in the past service was unquestionable. I will go back to enjoy the very good eating experience.

    We started with the roasted veggie salad and grilled octopus. The waiter offered to have the kitchen split the octopus prior to serving - always a sign of great service. Both were delicious. For mains, we had the rigatoni bolognese, local striped bass, and grilled halibut special - all were flavorful and cooked perfectly. I wish we had room for dessert as it all sounded great. We will definitely be back.

    The food here was amazing. We started the meal with calamari and shrimp appetizer. The breading was light and the seafood fresh as can be. I had the Ny strip which was cooked to perfection topped with rosemary, thyme. Mouth watering! My husband had the tuna which was very fresh and delicious! We ended meal with the coconut layered cake! Omg, the best dessert we've had in years. Recurrent theme, freshness! The cake was moist, delicate, and quite satisfying! This place is a must when visiting the Hamptons!

    Sitting outdoors here on a balmy summer night is just bliss. None of the din that you find indoors here (and everywhere on a busy Hamptons summer night ) --and all of the pleasure of a very good Hamptons restaurant. That said, 3 of us ordered duck the other night, and it really was mediocre - dry AND greasy -- an achievement! The fish was excellent, as was the bread. We always look forward to an evening at Robert's and will certainly go back. We just won't order the duck,

    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"!
