This restaurant never disappoints. The menu has a good variety, the food is delicious and the desserts are outstanding! We sat outside this time. It was kind of chilly. The patio was nicely decorated and there were heat fans. The service is always great. We will come back soon!

I was very surprised to get a plate of cubed, roasted veggies (sweet potato, peppers, onions) and cubed pieces of corned beef with a poached egg as my “corned beef hash” order. The corned beef was good, the veggies okay and the egg perfectly cooked, but it was boring and lacked flavor. I would never order it again, but I did not complain about it. Life is hard enough for restaurants. The Caesar salad with grilled chicken was good. The apple crumb pie was delicious but a little too sweet for my taste. I took it home and mixed in sour cream to reduce the sweetness. It was great!!! Service was excellent.

Thank you for visiting and thank you for taking the time to share with us the good and the not so perfect. It is what helps us fine tune the operation. Appreciate it.

The server was slow to get drinks, or even come by. We never got our drinks refilled, and both meals came out cold. The sweet potato’s were not cooked all the way through either. When I paid the Bill the waitress just thru the Bill on the table and walked away with no words. Maybe an off day, but I was hoping for better service and at least warm food

We made the mistake of sitting in the bar area, where there was a family with a young child who was very vocal for that environment, coupled with our being very near the kitchen door. In addition, two of the staff members were unprofessional as they walked back and forth, expressing disgruntlement at being out of stock, etc.
Also, my NY strip steak was overcooked as it had probably been sitting for a few minutes under the heat lamp, as well as being about 8 ounces, for a hefty price that is deserving of a 12-16 ounce steak.
Not impressed - we should have chosen the outside seating area - that would have alleviated the noise level, but it wouldn't have solved the portion size.

Responded on November 12, 2020

Please accept our apologies for what sounds like a less than appealing seating arrangement exacerbated by staff noise. It is never pleasant trying to enjoy a meal when the noise level is unacceptable. By way of explanation, the rules and protocols we are operating under have certainly compromised our ability to provide the ambiance we like and the seating arrangements we prefer. Nevertheless your experience was unacceptable, we apologize and please if this ever happens again ask to be moved.

I ordered the quiche of the day (broccoli & cheddar cheese) and it was delicious, as always! Robin's Nest quiche is about 3 inches high & the crust is flakey & tasty. It comes with a small side salad, which was fresh and very good. I had unsweetened ice tea & our waitress was happy to provide refills. It was a pleasant & relaxing lunch!

Second time recently doing outdoor dining here. Hostess really friendly both times but both times they seem like they only have one waitress covering outside. Thankfully one of the bus boys recognized we weren’t being helped and he jumped in like a champ. He should be a waiter because when our waitress finally came to our table there was no “sorry for the delay”, no introduction and we just got a “you ready to order?” Food was great but for the prices the service should be better. Again, we were quite grateful someone cared enough to help us but it wasn’t the person whose job it really was.

We wanted to eat outdoors and Robin's Nest has beautiful outdoor seating spaces that were designed before COVID-19. We were asked to wear masks until seated at a table for two that overlooked a tributary of the Rancocas Creek. The tables were socially distanced and our server wore a mask the entire time.

The menu was varied, the food tasty, and the service excellent. We'll be back.

Tending to every little detail of Covid protocol has been a challenge at best; and, social distancing the tables so that they meet all of our needs often is perfect one week and as the calendar changes...not so perfect the next week. So please accept our apologies. Table adjustment in our outside dining area has become as much an art as cooking. We are terribly sorry that your lunch was compromised.

Well, there is no excuse to serve cold food, so no excuse will be given. We appreciate the fact that you mentioned the issue to your server on the spot so that the issue could be corrected or you could be compensated for the oversight. Hard as we try, everyone slips up every once in a while, we just regret that it was with a meal.

The food at Robin's Nest is very good. I highly recommend Robin's Nest. My only complaint concerns the hostess. I made reservations for two, for outdoor dining because my previous visits there were so nice seating along side the creek. However, when we arrived, the hostess would not seat us along side the creek. I explained that I drove an hour to eat there, plus I had made reservations for outdoor dining. But, she said those tables are only for parties of four. Well, that is fine. Except the place was empty. So, in today's market to lure diners....why would a hostess NOT do her best to accommodate a party of two? It's a shame the hostess wasn't better trained in being a hostess.

Robin's Nest Restaurant
Responded on October 1, 2020

By way of explanation on your concern on the seating, when we opened for outside dining, we struggled with a table layout that would both accommodate as many customers as possible while strictly adhering to all protocols. Frankly that didn't allow for very many tables and we had to be very strategic in their placement, such as lining the perimeter with tables for larger parties. We apologize if you recognized tables as empty when in fact they were reserved for parties with upcoming reservations.
