Our group of four went on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday. What a great decision!!! Everything was delicious. We were treated with a champagne toast as well as samples of dry aged beef (yum). We were all glad that we tried the butternut squash agnolotti. It was remarkable. The table side presentation of the french onion soup was impressive. The kung pao sprouts and cacio e pepe potatoes as sides went well with our steak and sea bass entrees. We finished the meal with complimentary desserts. Our waiter went above and beyond! No complaints just praise!!

All 3 ribeyes were bad cuts of meat. Table of 4 people and we got slapped with automatic gratuity with no warning. One of the first groups to arrive to 8 pm seating on New Year’s Eve and got placed in private room that was loud with 6 other tables. Would have been nice to sit in main dining room. Asked for additional bread 3 times and never received. Didn’t get to pick steak knives (something they are known for). Food runners auctioned off each course not knowing who was supposed to get what at our table. Final bill $475 for two martinis, two bourbons, two dinners and automatic gratuity. Worst $500 I have ever spent. Will never return.

We were celebrating New Years Eve with friends from out of town. My expectation was that the restaurant would be more festive and appropriately decorated to reflect the occasion at $125 per person. They offered a prix fix menu which we knew about prior but unfortunately not everyone enjoyed the selections. The timing between each course could have been improved. We ordered coffee to end the night and it was lukewarm.... reminded me of a limp handshake. The final bill was approximately $200 per person; believe me, we love good food and not shy about paying for a great experience but sadly, this visit did not meet the mark.

Waiter asked us for our order before we had even ordered a drink. Salads and drinks were good. Steak was medium warm and bland. Fish (sea bass) had many bones. Clearly not Chilean sea bass. Some Mediterranean fish renamed sea bass. Then we get a bill showing 3 main courses for 2 people. Waiter had not checked the bill and overall was a poor server. Restaurant is over priced and fails to deliver. We won’t be back and will actively tell friends about our experience.

My ribeye was 2/3 ribeye and 1/3 fat and gristle. My husband had a filet that was dry and tasteless. I asked for bernaise and it came spicy. Bernaise is NOT spicy. Very very overpriced for what we got!

Our guests’ steak was undercooked and it was wagyu by the ounce .. rather than cook a new one they took both halves off their plates and heated them ... not the least bit acceptable for a $1,500 meal for four.

We had a very good experience at this restaurant a couple of years ago. It seems that since then the menu and the food itself has taken a downturn. This is a very expensive restaurant that had some of the best food in the Houston area. At this point I don't feel the quality of the food is anywhere near what it was then or what it should be now for the price. We've gone from recommending this restaurant to friends, to hoping none of them took that recommendation recently. Truly unfortunate.

Quality was outstanding. Linz meat terrific. Great service and attention to detail. Not the restaurants fault but there was a group o 6 adults with 3 children ages ~ 3, 2 and 1 1/2 that were not only distracting but VERY annoying. Get a baby sitter rather than trying to ruin other dining experience.
A bit more lighting would be helpful.

We had a great dinner date (which we never get to do with 4 kids at home...it’s been years!) great atmosphere, quiet, romantic and music was perfect. We enjoyed the food although it was a bit overpriced. Our server Alexandra was amazing! She gave us suggestions from the cocktails to dessert. Everything was perfect!

Understanding this is a steak house - least expensive steak was $47 young daughter would have preferred chicken - no chicken dishes on the menu apparently it's a new menu & chicken was taken off the menu several weeks ago. Bread basket was wonderful - side dishes were really good except the portions for mashed potatoes were exceptionally small. The Sea Bass was slightly larger than a domino piece sadly they were overly cooked and hard on one side which eliminated the buttery flaky texture & it required that I use a knife - tasted to have been one day over the fresh date and had a fishy taste. It was not edible and I wound up feeling slightly nauseated next morning. The wine we selected by the bottle was not available. Robard's was on my Bucket List having heard great reviews from restaurant owners, friends and Tanji Patton. We reserved a hotel just for this dinner - a celebration of my life 1 year ago almost died from a stroke. The celebration wasn't so happy for me with dinner - I can't imagine Howard Hughes would have been pleased. Drinks were amazing - now I have to buy my daughter an espresso machine. We will not return. Not worth the $360.

We made it very clear how we wanted our steak cooked; medium plus. It our understanding, as was our servers understanding, medium plus means hot pink center. When the $62 filet mignon showed up at our table it was practically raw and resting in a pool of blood. When the manager came to our table he mangled the filet to find it was rare.
From that point forward they could not wait to get us out of the restaurant. They didnt even wrap our unfinished bottle of wine. What an overall disappointment. The backwaiter was not refilling our water and wine as needed and he took my butter-covered bread knife off my plate and placed on the table resulting in a blobsmear of butter on my side of the table.
With exception to our server, this experience at Robards could not have been worse.
In general, restaurants just do not seem to care about repeat business. Based on how quiet Robards was this Friday evening, they should consider making some changes

Great food. Waitress was waiting on too many tables to spend much time on us. Had to ask a few times for things. Water glasses filled late but for the price point should have been better service.

The food was wonderful, as was our server for dinner. His suggestions were perfect, he was attentive and friendly while still giving us the space to enjoy our anniversary dinner. The only disappointment was our time in the bar before our meal. We wanted to sit and have a drink and an appetizer before our meal. It took us 15 minutes to even order a drink, despite there being 3 bartenders. We weren’t even greeted until we had to flag one of them down, and then had to do it again to get a menu. The bar experience was disappointing, but the restaurant dining experience was fantastic. It isn’t somewhere I would want to bring my business clients unless the bar service improves, but the restaurant experience was very nice.

This is our second time visiting Robard's, and both times the restaurant has amazed us with the service and food. Our waiter, Jeff, was fantastic throughout the dinner with recommendations and making sure that the pace for our meal was perfectly executed to not be rushed, but also not be waiting around for too long.
Their craft cocktails are also very good, my wife loved her cucumber martini, while I really enjoyed their new "Elvis" Old Fashioned.
Will have to come back and visit again soon to try their updated menu items.

This was our third visit to Robard's, and we had been looking forward to it. I received a $150 gift card for my birthday and we were ready to spend it. After we were seated, I let our server know that we would be using the gift card, and he checked the balance to verify. The experience went downhill from there. Our server didn't return again for at least 7-8 minutes, and even then we had to flag him down just to ask for water and order our cocktails. I don't know if he was just having an off night or what, but he was extremely inattentive. We ordered the chilled shellfish tower to share as our main entree, and the crab claws were some of the worst I've ever had - dry, super flaky and tasteless. The oysters and shrimp were okay, but the lobster was slimy and just overall not what I would expect for an $85 item. I would much rather have the shellfish tower at Truluck's.

We love the ambiance at Robard's and would maybe be willing to give it another shot, but this experience definitely tarnished our overall opinion.

Very disappointed in our experience. We waited forever to be served by the waitstaff. We actually had to approach them and ask if they would take our order. Once they did, they did not write the order down so we did not get everything that we ordered. At the end of the evening, my husband ordered a specific beer but was given another beer. The waitress insisted she gave him the correct beer. We later discovered that the bar mixed the kegs of beer. We were hopeful that the patio would be a nice place to sit since it was a beautiful evening, but it smelled like it was freshly mulched.
