    Met a friend for dinner, their first time at the restaurant, our umpteenth time (because we love it so) Had a wonderful dinner, great service, everyone waving, saying hello. Ended up having a drink with the group next to us because they were having so much fun. It was great, again, as always!

    First time visit, with anticipation, and was happily satisfied! Read the reviews & heard personal comments, couldn't wait to try for myself. Atmosphere and ambiance were absolutely awesome....love the vintage motif. Service was good from start to finish and the food, most importantly, was delicious. Started with soup sampler--would've loved a bowl of each one! Salad was fresh and dressing very tasty and not too much. Both entrees were delicious, although a small problem with mine (personal dislike of the sauce), but the chef gladly remedied it for me. Topped off the meal with a delicious chocolate mousse cheesecake! Looking forward to going back....maybe just do bowls of soup and a dessert--both very filling and delicious!

    I love Robin's Nest, the food is always good as is the service, its a quirky but comfortable environment. I am particularly keen on their outdoor seating area and bar area that overlooks the stream. They have an insane dessert array, none of which has ever been a bummer.

    As always, Robin proves why this wonderful neighborhood restaurant is perfect for celebrations. Whether its the made from scratch soups, warm brie encased in flaky dough or delicious entrees such as pumpkin ravioli, perfectly cooked salmon and delectable desserts all the food was wonderfully delicious. One note to take prior to dining, the service is a bit lack luster, we enjoy the food and the ambiance but there are a couple of servers that make for a less than perfect dining experience. Also note that this is not a baby/toddler/diaper friendly location as there's no changing facilities and the kids menu is not as well designed and tasting as the main entrees.

    Arrived, no one acknowledge me and my husband, no hostess at desk, servers would hustle and bustle by and didn't even noticed us standing in front of desserts glass case. Then other couple comes in and hostess shows up and seats them. Told her I had reservation and she said it will be a wait. My experience here is always the same, always understaffed... veg medley is always a bit hard. Duck was amazing...

They have delicious food with a little twist, not just regular food you see on an everyday menu. They have excellent soups too and the desserts are to die for!

    the food was just like homemade absolutely delicious.the only reason it did not get a full complement of stars is because the room we were in became very very hot by the end of our meal it was a beautiful small little room but very very hot. Otherwise a fantastic place to go eat relax and have a excellent meal. Would highly recommend this for any foodie because the entrees are unique and flavorful and cooked by a master chef

    This time we brought a friend visiting from England to lunch at Robin's Nest. She totally enjoyed it and called it a GEM! Everything from the soup to the desserts was terrific. The Pumpkin Martini was a hit. We found out that they have outdoor dining as well. We live in northern NJ, but make it down for lunch as a special treat. Wish it was closer, we'd be regulars!

    Ate brunch outside on a beautiful Sept day and enjoyed the view. Food was good, deserts were so delicious and large, they were easily 'splitable'. Due to a noisy group table near us, it was a little loud but I don't consider this a fault of the restaurant. Overall, staff was friendly but nothing special. We enjoyed our visit so much that I would certainly come back again.

    All was going as expected, that is, a great dinning experience, until two people carried their two small, hairy dogs into the restaurant. The waitress explained that the dog owners were not supposed to bring their pets in the restaurant, but they were supposed to use a side door to enter, and be seated outside on the terrace.

    We always enjoy dining at the Robin's Nest. The décor is vintage and quirky and I love checking it out. The food is always delicious. Have never had a problem here. The servers have always been friendly and helpful. Sometimes the service is a little slow but we don't come here to be rushed. It's always very enjoyable. This time my husband had the barbecued brisket which he said was very good. I had the honey pecan chicken which I love and is one of the Robin's Nest's specialties. Desserts are to die for. We'll be back!

    My second visit was just as great as my first. This week I took my brother and sister-in-law for lunch for their September birthdays. We had everything from the jalapeno pierogies to cranberry shortcake for dessert and all was high quality, perfectly cooked and presented. Our waitress was as polished as the food. Can't wait to return.

    A straightforward menu, and good ingredients prepared correctly make this a good choice in the Burlington area. Prices for both food and beverages were very fair. Groupons are available, but restaurant also features an economical menu for those not using coupons. A toothache prevented me from enjoying any of the delicious looking desserts. So I plan on going back again for that, and to try the pierogies.

    Every visit has been consistent: really great food, excellent service, nice ambiance, and peaceful, and our visit on 8/27 2014 was no exception. On this visit I forced myself to not eat too much and leave room for desert. Because the entrees are so good, this has been a significant challenge and for once I got to pick a desert. The desert selections were all so good it was really hard to pick. Everyone in our group picked a different desert, but we did not share bites with each other because we all devoured our own selection before we could talk. Robin's Nest is always great, never had just an OK meal, always great.
