As usual, wine's varied and appropriate, food good several enjoyed the crab cakes and soup or salad, one of us had the scollops with lardon and shaved brussels sprouts. Deliciaous. Great service. Got us to the play on time! We love this place.

My daughter and I requested a table in the separate room and it was great. Our server was wonderful. I forgot to use my gift card and probably should have asked if he would rerun our tab. My only "complaint" was that a couple of servers or bussers kept doing housekeeping things at the table in the corner right next to us... Just felt a little less private or personal. Overall, a wonderful experience.

For starters, our server Joshua, was nice, professional & knowledgeable.
That set the tone for the party.
He made us feel welcome, in a world in which we are often invisible. Food/cocktails and wine were all delicious, and we enjoyed ourselves to the point where I know we will need a Redux.
Thanks from the Gaggle of Gals!

We had a great time at Robust! Excellent service, our waitress really knew the wine selection and was able to make great recommendations and took great care of us. We had a lot of shareables and every dish was delicious! Making a reservation was super easy online and our table was ready promptly.

Great atmosphere. Be prepared for small plates, but food is excellent. Personalized wait staff who knows menu and works to get you what you want. No hurry to move you for someone else—they want you to eat and relax. We were there for two hours wining and dining. Great place. Will return.

I have been for dinner several times, but this was the first time I went for lunch. The lunch food is good and the service was great (there were very few customers when we went), however I like their dinner "shareable" menu better than the lunch menu

Enjoyed the evening out with my wife. We each had a wine flight and the chowder. Nothing better than the chowder on a cold night. We continued our meal with shared small plates: charcuterie prosciutto, meatballs and crab cakes. All foods were excellent and served timely on a busy Friday evening. Would recommend for a night out.

Excellent as always! This is one of our favorite date night restaurants. All of the servers are well versed in the seasonal menu and wine offerings, and make great recommendations based on your preferences. Josh is our favorite, and his suggestions have always been spot on -- we have discovered several amazing wines that we might not have tried otherwise. Our favorite is to sit outside on the streetside patio when the weather allows, but the inside is great too!

Food, wine, service was very good. Staff was exceptional. Our waiter was outstanding, but no matter what anyone was doing (even those working behind the bar), everyone on the staff noticed everything. Used silverware was quietly replaced by multiple people, plates were removed by multiple people without delay, water glasses filled by multiple people. It was amazing to watch this group work as a cohesive team. It was as impressive as the food and wine! We'll be back. Thank You!

We waited 25 minutes, after we were given water, for anyone to wait on or acknowledge us. Many staff persons walked by and should have noticed we still had our menus, including the hostess who walked by many times. No one seemed to care when we walked out. It was not crowded and we did have a reservation. Terrible experience.

Our only problem is that it is a little far from west county to drive

We had reservations for 3-4 people. They gave us a table for two with a wobbly chair and pulled up a spare broken chair making two of the three chairs questionable to sit in. I specifically made reservations to avoid a situation as this especially when we were celebrating a birthday. Waiter was great! Caesar salads were sad (wilted and browned edges), but house salad was delicious.

We’ve been to Robust a number of times in the past (it’s one of our go-to date night locations) and it’s consistently amazing.

Wonderful staff, fantastic food, live music that’s not so loud you can’t hold a conversation, etc... it’s amazing.

If you haven’t been, you have to try it out.

Service and food delivery were very slow, but I made allowances for that since we had just went through a huge snow storm the day before. They may have been short staffed.
