Great food, great service, great ambiance! Absolutely loved Roberts!
Arrived a few minutes after 11, was not seated until almost 11:30. Breakfast ends at 12 - very rushed
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.
Excellent food and service and a great place to take the one you love.
I really love this place since it's upscale and everything is just fancy. Service is good, food is creative and atmosphere is very lovely. My favorite server named Carlos. Great for date!!
Robert's is situated in one of the most beautiful rooms in the city, which makes it a must to try f only for the venue. The food I'd quire good, too!
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.
