Fantastic chowder, amazing cheese plate special, lobster risotto was perfect. Their Manhattan cocktail was very good as well. Flatbreads are unique. Deserts are always a winner
Always knowledgeable servers, good food and fun atmosphere. Excellent place to meet friends.
Generally wonderful wines....Caesar salad with shrimp was good, but the new chef forgot to add parmesan cheese. When it was requested, it was provided.
Great food , service and wine. Quite pricey for the small portions
Always fun to return to a place that was in our neighborhood when we lived in St. Louis over 10 years go and find it's just as good as it always was!
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.
Last minute decision for an impromptu Friday date night. Robust was a great choice! Exceptional wine list and cocktails. Delicious food and excellent service!.
Love everything about Robust!!!!!
Best wine selection food fantastic pairings
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.
We always enjoy Robust. Tasty small plates and nice wines, with excellent service.
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!
This was not our first time to enjoy Robust- love the tapas for sharing and the wine flights are well selected! Enjoy the sassy grouping! We all enjoyed the variety. We will be back.
This was my first time at Robust and I absolutely loved it. It’s somewhat tucked away and has a very charming ambience, great food, and a very friendly vibe. I’ll be returning soon!
Our experience was wonderful! Mark took great care of our group with great recommendations and perfect service. Flight night was a perfect night for us ladies!
Kip our waiter was outstanding and makes me what to come back!
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!
Made a reservation for a belated Valentine's Day. Food was very good, service excellent. A bit pricey for a regular date night but worth it for a special occasion.
Worst dining experience I’ve ever had. This is the only review I’ve ever written. Trust me this place is horrendous
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.
We always enjoy the food
I like the small plates to share and the wine flights to sample different wines
Our only problem is that it is a little far from west county to drive
Nice small plate menu, and a good wine flight list to choose from, great service!
Galentine fun - our group of ladies doesn’t drink so we were there for the fantastic food and complimentary dessert sampler for the occasion
Everything was absolutely mouth watering , the servers were knowledgeable and very helpful pairing wines with our choice of foods.
We had a wonderful experience at Robust. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. I enjoyed my wine flight! We will definitely return.
Great girls night out!! The staff created a flight for us which was perfect and recommended cheeses to go with! Very knowledgeable. Great atmosphere. Love it!!!
Prices are very expensive
When we arrived there was no reservation from Open Table and we were told that we were the second person who thought that they had made a reservation
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.
Good food and good value. Not very busy at lunch - somber atmosphere.
Very quaint place. The food and wine choices were excellent
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.
Wonderful happy hour
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.
Robust never disappoints!!
We always enjoy Robust, and we were pleasantly surprised to find the prix fixe menu for New Year's Eve. It was delicious and was a great value!
We went to Robust for dinner on New Year's Eve. We did not have any other plans for the evening, so there was no rush. It was a great choice. Kip our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. He made great suggestions on wines and the small plates we went with. He also kept us advised as to why some of our early dishes took awhile to get to us (because there was a glut of folks there for an early dinner before their parties and were doing the tasting dinner). Once we got past that initial rush, everything else came out quickly. We enjoyed our NYE dinner and went home having enjoyed good wine and great food. We will definitely be going back.
Great New Years Eve dinner! We did the tasting menu and it was perfect.
