    Beautiful environment! Food was good, nothing very memorable, but met our needs for meeting friends. Expensive, but worthwhile for us having lovely, quiet place away from crowds or annoyances. No problem placing our orders or receiving food, but service was minimal. A pot of coffee was left on table, but with 6 people, didn't last long and server didn't return to refill. Server also didn't return to see if we had further needs.

    One of the very few holdouts for serious business people to meet in an environment that is not over powered by music (designed for the 20 - 25 age group). Roberts restaurant has retained the most valuable lessons from the very best establishments of the past - carpeting, drapes, and other soft surfaces quiet a room and add immeasurably to achieving a pleasant experience. The current rage for stainless steels, glass, and hard surfaces found in so many new and incorrectly updated establishments --- are fad, not fashion, and certainly not in the long run welcoming environments.

    We came here for Mother's Day breakfast. Reservation process was easy. The restaurant also called us to provide additional dining options that were not available via the OpenTable reservation process. Much appreciated! Food was great, service was great despite it being very busy. The hotel itself is a DC landmark hotel and contributed to the ambiance and fabulous experience. Overall, we enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Great service. Our server was attentive and very quick - anticipating needs before we even asked. The salad was fresh, tasty and filling. Only complaint is that the crab cake had filling in it (bread?eggs?not quite sure). I'm admittedly spoiled when it comes to crab cakes having spent lots of time in Maryland, so it's disappointing when chefs try to stretch the crab by adding fillers. The open, airy and elegant Art Deco ambience more than made up for the disappointing crab cakes!

    Made a reservation for 1:45 through Open table. Website for Robert’s read open all afternoon. Arrived on time and was told they would not seat us because the restaurant was not serving after 2:00. Fortunately, their was a great restaurant around the corner called “The Italians.” Great food at a better price than Robert’s. Will not attempt to dine at Robert’s again.

    The Roberts Restaurant at the Omni Shoreham was a little underwhelming. I tried to call numerous times to confirm my reservation but never got through to anyone on the phone. I called the regular hotel but still all they did was transfer me to the restaurant line that no one seems to monitor (called 5 times and left 2 messages). The ambiance was decent but just remember that it is inside of a hotel and not blocked off so there is a lot of traffic going on around the restaurant seating. The waiters service was pretty good and they were attentive. We went for Valentine's Day and there was a special menu which was nice and reasonably priced but the food was not that great. For a $52 steak it lacked flavor and was just ok as far as taste, nothing special. The sides tasted like they were made in a microwavable steam bag. The dessert was alright but overpriced for what you are actually receiving. The cleanliness was not the best either as I could see there was some trash under our table that had not been cleaned from whoever was sitting there before. If you do go make sure to arrive early as the Omni boasts free valet parking but the valet parking gets filled up pretty quickly so we could not even take advantage of that benefit.

    The restaurant failed to mention that they are closed for the weeks during my reservation, although I have called in advance to check on my reservation. When we arrived, not even the staff at the hotel reception was the aware that the restaurant was closed. The management clearly has some serious internal miscommunication.

    Roberts is a beautiful restaurant. Great lighting. Airy and bright during breakfast and lunch. Food service was good. The entrees we're large and tasty although the shrimp cocktail was not particularly large given the cost. $14.00. Wine by the glass can be purchased in 6 and 9 ounces servings.

    Great ambiance with lots of space adjacent to a wonderful hotel lobby and windows to a patio and Rock Creek Park. The service was quite attentive, although the server got the plates mixed up at one point. We found the menu somewhat limited, although, in fairness, it was the lunch menu. (The deviled egg plant was delish!) Very nice time, want to go back for dinner menu.

    I visited Robert's this past Friday evening with a friend. Except for us, the restaurant was completely empty of clientele the entire time we were at table. The menu is easy to understand, and the dishes arrived pretty much as I expected them. The server was an African woman having quiet, gentle manner. She brought everything to the table that we had ordered. I am not sure if she speaks English very well, but her quiet manner added nothing to our dining experience. My only complaint was the bread, served in a steel basket lined with a thick, cotton napkin. The bread was cold and looked as though it had just been removed from a cellophane package. With no other tables to serve except ours, someone should have heated the bread in an oven so that it arrived warm, if not hot. I told this to the server, and she said she would communicate this message to a manager. I was disappointed that Robert's has gone the way of many restaurants today in that there are no table cloths, just dark brown, woven mats that can be (and should be) sanitized after a table is cleared. Aside from the drab tables, the ambience was sterile, lifeless, and our server did not bring any lively energy to the service. Every now and then the door leading to the Blue Room, located on the other side of the wall, would open and a flood of party noise would gush into Robert's for a few moments. That was the only sign of active life I could discern. The other matter that was not right was that the plates were not hot. The food was warm, but the soup plates were not hot as the soup was poured into them, and the server did not have to use a cloth to handle the plates containing the main course. The soup was not as hot as it should have been. Again, the dining room was empty except for our table, so there was no excuse that a large number of diners had to be served at that moment. The dessert was Chocolate Dream, which was a round, disk-shaped, flourless chocolate cake that

    I MADE A RESERVATION 2 OR 3 WEEKS BEFORE. I WAS REMINDED BY OPEN TABLE A FEW DAYS BEFORE. WHEN WE GET THERE THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED!! NOBODY LET ME KNOW. I HAD TO PARK MY CAR FOR $35.00 AND NOT UNTIL I GOT INSIDE THE HOTEL COULD I SEE THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED. THAT WAS VERY POOR AND SLOPPY COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN THE RESTAURANT AND OPEN TABLE. I HAD OUT OF TOWN GUESTS LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. I AM OUT $35.00 FOR NOTHING!!!
