Robin Alexander is not a fine dining restaurant, but has the interior designer of one. I compare it to the Olive Garden because the menu and prices are about on par. The food is good, and prices are very low. Don't expect a five star experience, which you might assume from the exterior, website, and ambiance, but the waitstaff is very friendly, if a bit chipper, and not extremely knowledgeable. Very similar to a lot of other Lynchburg restaurants. The only unique personality the restaurant has is the decor.
Never are in Lynchburg and found this restaurant that looked good. The décor is very nice and it had a vibrant bar scene. TV everywhere too to watch game and or other programs. Seated far away and asked to be moved and they accommodated immediately. Free Wi-Fi! Waiter was very tentative and willing to make many recommendations based upon my questions. The ribs appetizer was plentiful and the meat fell off the bone. Ordered the paella which was not traditional but was good too. It was a Tuesday and they had a beer special for $2. All in all, I would highly recommend this place based on the variety of food as well as quality of meals and great service!
This is consistently one of my favorites for casual dining and a few drinks in Lynchburg. Very friendly staff and well prepared food. Decent selections of food and spirits. I had a very good rib eye cooked medium (pink) with sides, desert and a good local craft beer for under $40.
I took my mother here for her 88th birthday. We had the best food, best server and it was a wonderful evening. Impeccable service, manager came personally to speak to us and gave my mother a special birthday dessert!
I was really impressed with this dining experience. the waiter and hostess was really nice. The service truly was incredible. The food was just ok. I would go there again just for the great service though.
The food was mouth-watering and delicious. Their martini menu is quite delightful! Would definitely recommend this place and looking forward to coming back! Definitely need to try more of their many martinis!!
Robin Alexander is a great place to go for either a casual dine or a romantic date. It is classy, yet trendy and laid-back. Pricing is not too bad. You pay okay prices for what you get. The food is great quality, and the burger menu is fairly large.
I recently went to RA Bistro for the first time. I was amazed how good the food was from entrée to desert. I had the Tuscan Chicken and my friend had the Steak Pasta. We highly recommend them both! Portions were perfect and our waiter Karem answered all of our questions with ease. They also have a extensive martini list. My only compliant is that I wish my glass of white wine was chilled better. Other than that I can't wait to go back.
They have a great variety of food in which everyone can find something to eat according to their preferences or allergy needs. I personally enjoy their burger menu which is extremely creative, but also has options for the vegetarian and non red-meat eater!
Always enjoy the food and atmosphere. My wife and I split a few appetizers when we go.
