The hostess and wait staff were excellent during our visit. My wife and I were guests at the Omni and wanted to do something for dinner that was hassle free with good food to go along with it so we chose Roberts. Our food was good but slightly under seasoned. My short rib could have used more gravy and the mash potatoes weren’t seasoned at all. My wife had the rockfish which she really liked but could have also used more seasoning and touch more of the sauce it came with. I know this all sounds negative but we enjoyed our dining experience. Hopefully they can take the seasoning to the next level and the food would be an easy 5 rating in the future.

Robert's Restaurant is the perfect location for a business breakfast, lunch, dinner or coffee. Unhurried and a room complimented by soft music - the atmosphere is excellent.

Service was indifferent- had to wave down the waiter several times and the place was half empty. Food was mediocre or worse. Wife sent her food back and the rest of us found it very low quality. I did t my nd paying up for good food and service but we got neither.

The restaurant staff is attentive, and never rushes you. This is one of the few remaining truly adult locations in the city where you can discuss business, or catch up with a friend in an elegant atmosphere supported by lovely background music that is correctly matched to the venue. The mistake most locations in DC make is mixing loud overpowering modern music with a venue that they say welcomes mature adult business discussions and quiet dining - not so. Robert's Restaurant at the Omni is a unique venue and experience - and the keeper of the flame for quiet welcoming hospitality done well. When one looks at the W or the Willard their updating results can best be described as putting grandmother in a mini-skirt...

Robert's is quiet, airy, and pretty. But I wouldn't recommend eating there.

My wife ordered a salmon niçoise, which the menu promised would include salmon, frisee, anchovies, olives, fried soft boiled egg, confit potato, and fennel. I ordered the same, and mine was fully constructed. Her salad lacked half the ingredients - anchovies, olives, and fennel. For both of us, the "confit" potato tasted as if cooked in nothing but unsalted water. What did we get? Essentially, a plate of frisee, with irregular other ingredients, for $18. Our colleagues received burgers and fries likely found in a struggling Ruby Tuesday.

There's little competition in the neighborhood, and we were there during a conference on a bitterly cold weekend, so we were essentially stuck. Sadly, it seems Robert's understands this, and cynically fields poor food to people who have no alternative choice to make.

My advice? Order in. Save your money. Reward your appetite.

After a long day of travel, we settled into the comfort of Robert's Restaurant. Service was professional and gracious. The portions are not large, but they are tasty. Syeak frites with a hollandaise sauce, roasted salmon with Swiss chard, and duck confit were all well presented and delicious.

We were staying at the hotel and it started pouring so we decided to eat in vs. venturing out in D.C. We were pleasantly surprised with the food and once we got seated - had very good service. My husband and I split the ceasar salad, crab cake appetizer and a filet. Our daughter had kid's mac-n-cheese which had a gouda taste to it she really enjoyed. I would say the steak was up to par with other decent steakhouses and less pricey. I would definitely eat here again if the opportunity presented.

Friends enjoyed the crabcakes. Caesar salad was not tossed with the dressing -- not appropriate for this type of salad. My steak was perfectly cooked and the sauce tasty. Dessert of espresso donuts was overcooked and dry and they were stingy on the sauce which could have helped the dryness at least a bit.

Very centrally located in aN awesome historical hotel. Restaurant has good ambiance but closer look it's a tad shabby. Very kid friendly staff went out of way to make my 3 year old hAppy. Food was good but not sure worth the price, not with other great options close by.

Breakfast buffet is excellent. The lunch is fine. But dinner service was subpar. Our server was not attentive and would rather have been somewhere else. The food was so-so but not worth the price. I would recommend many of the restaurants around the corner on Connecticut ave

The meal and service were both outstanding...And we had the breakfast buffet! I don't expect much for service during that type of meal, but as with everything else we experienced at the Omni, we were made to feel special. Everything we ate was beautifully displayed and lived up to it's looks with flavor. Delicious.

We have an upcoming conference at the Omni so decided to do some recon at their restaurant. The lobby is exquisite and the restaurant is right off the lobby with old world elegance. The server knew little about the menu items, seemed reluctant to get more information, and seemed to be making up his responses on the fly (can the sautéed pork chops be ordered grilled instead? Oh they are grilled, in the oven, after sautéing.) The crab bisque was barely warm with lots of crab shell pieces to pick out. My wife had the parpadelle with tomatoes. That was it - overdone pasta and tomatoes with some olive oil. I had the meatloaf, served with their 'homemade BBQ sauce.' Yes, it was - smothered in so much sauce that even after scraping off most, it still covered up any flavor of the meatloaf. it was accompanied by cold mashed potatoes and cold grilled zucchini. We hear that the brunch and breakfast buffets are exquisite, so maybe we'll recommend that to our conference attendees.

Our waitress was unattentive. She brought a check before she asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. It was Valentines day and there were plenty of seats but she acted like she didnt want to wait on us.

Very cheap foods, poorly prepared, poor service, over charged by $60 + dollars, charged 100% on beer($7.50 beer, + $ 7.50 beer tax), brought the wrong bill (for $2,160.96) - for three people? Couldn't eat the food. Shrimp was off/turned/spoiled. Veggies were dry and tasteless. Prime rib was ALL extra extra rare and bleeding all over the cutting table. And so on and on and on.
My last visit, ever.
