Food was excellent! Wine was great! Service was great! Felt comfortable with spacing and cleanliness regarding COVID. Great experience!
Robust, always a great meal!
Our first time at Robust did not disappoint. The only thing was the menu had just changed so items we were hoping to try were not available. The Figgy Piggy Flatbread was amazing as was our dinner!
Robust is such a charming place with attentive, polite, creative servers. The food is creative and tasty, wine options abound! Outdoor seating is fun. Saturday night, there was music and a nice vibe.
Menu is quite limited for main courses
Great food and service as always!
Our server made the dining experience absolutely amazing! The food was excellent and the cocktails were even better.
A little pricey but worth it. The outdoor patio is very nice. The service was very good. The food was excellent. In addition to the great wine, they had a nice beer list! We had a great time.
Enjoyed the food, atmosphere and slides of wine countries.
Overall it was a really pleasant experience. We went on a Friday evening and there was plenty of social distanced seating but also live music while instilled a bit of normalcy in to the evening. Staff was fairly slow but could be due to business of a Friday night.
Robust is always a wonderful experience. Great food, wonderful wine, and unique cocktails. They have also done a great job with social distancing and their large patio has heaters to keep you comfortable on a fall evening.
Crab cakes were great along with a very reasonable priced wine list. Lots of outdoor dining space.
Great outdoor seating area! Allows for fresh air and social distancing.
Pricey for what we got. Seems food portions are even smaller, but excellent as usual.
This was one of the best dining experiences we have had during Covid 19 pandemic. We were able to sit outside in comfortable setting with plenty of distance from other people/tables, enjoy fantastic wine and food, and even hear live music (acoustic guitar) in background. I highly recommend for a really great night out - that also allows you to feel safe & comfortable.
Perfect! It was a beautiful evening, and the Taylor Streiff band was fabulous! Our waiter took excellent care of us, and everything was delicious! Can hardly wait to come back!!!
Great table, great ambiance, great live music.
The outdoor dining at Robust was excellent. Our server was fantastic and attentive. The food was excellent.
It was wonderful. Service is great, food is great, not one complaint.
Great food and wine on the patio!
Never visited Robust before. Very nice place with nice outdoor seating as well. We will definitely be back.
Excellent date night outside on the patio! Socially distanced and masks helped keep everyone safe!
Great place to dine during pandemic. Tables are spread out, lighting is lovely. Menu is fun. Will go back.
Great basic red wine flight, deluxe cheese platter, crab cake and caprese salad. Perfect mix of food. My wife had the rose flight . Great wine! Left with 2 bottles
Servers were knowledgeable and attentive. Creative and enjoyable menu with great wine options, along with good beer and drink selection. Patio seating is nicely spaced; inside appears to be nicely spaced with plenty of room to feel safe. Will definitely return!
Delicious food, great service! Highly recommend Robust for an evening out
The patio din
I've been to Robust many times and I was hesitant to write this review because I know what a great restaurant it is...or can be. First, we were seated by a sewer lid, which maybe would have been okay if it wasn't so hot but it was hot. I should have asked to be moved but I didn't...my mistake. The good news is there was a breeze so the smell wasn't constant just an occasional whiff. Second, the tomato and mozzarella salad was small and only had 3 little bits of mozzarella...tiny bits. Not what I expected. The entree was ok as was the dessert but normally the entrees are spectacular. I felt like the second team was cooking. I will say our waiter was great. The evening was not what I expect from Robust and certainly not for the price.
We were there on a Friday night, seated outside with our friends - 4 in total. Even though there was an umbrella at our small table, the sun was a problem for about an hour. I know we were at a wine bar, but the wines (we recognized many labels) were very overpriced. They did have a binder full of multiple wines to choose from, fitting every palate, so you’ll find something you’ll enjoy. What they offered in small plates were interesting. I’ll only comment on what my husband and I ordered. We started with Prosciutto for him and the Braesolla for me. Both were served with thin sliced, very soft French bread. My Braesolla was served the typical Italian way - drizzled with olive oil and shaved paremesan and capers. Mine was delicious! My husband’s Prosciutto had tiny corbichons and the bread, which he found his dish tasteless. We passed on entrees - not a big selection. I ordered the Robust Chowder for my hubby - he likes food with a “kick” and I ordered the Calamari salad, (Husband was too busy talking and drinking, so I ordered). We both loved our dishes. The chowder does have a kick, so be warned if you don’t like a kick to your food. I would go back just for the Calamari salad. No lettuce with this salad, just Calamari ring, onions, and I’m sure celery (but not sure) - it was really delicious! Ashley, our waitress, and Brianna, another server, couldn’t have been better. Both were extremely friendly, courteous, and very helpful. They had a trio playing that night (apparently they have music every Friday night) and they were outstanding. The weather was beautiful, being with our friends was always so pleasurable, the wines, the food, the excellent service and the music made it a very special evening - one that will be unforgettable. It was the first time for the four of us to experience Robust, but it definitely will not be the last.
wonderful night out-side on the patio, live music that was wonderful and still able to talk and enjoy our table. food was delicious as always. corn chowder was especially good. Crab cakes were smaller than i remembered but was good to be back.
Extremely enjoyable evening. Will plan to go again.
Love Robust! One of my favorite go to for patio setting and great service. I think that the food is a bit overpriced but very good. I always leave there tipsy and hungry but I still love it there.
Has ample outdoor seating and it’s always pretty easy to get a reservation. Food is decent, but a little under seasoned and pricy for what you get. Good wine selection. Always great, friendly service!
It was the best they could do keeping within the COVID guidelines. We wish them well.
Nifty Tapas style restaurant in Webster Groves area of St Louis, MO. A good spread of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. An excellent wine list; beers, liquors and cocktails. Attentive, consultative and outstanding service. The manager came out to check in between to make sure everything was alright. Excellent patio music. Ample sitting room inside and out. Lots of free parking In front and around. There’s a private room as well. Fresh food. Lots of vegetarian, vegan, seafood, and meat options. Healthy tapas style servings - not the typical over-sized servings. Casual dress code. A nice place to hang out with your family and friends. A little pricey but overall excellent dining experience. Highly recommended.
We were greeted at the door by Stanley, the owner. Despite the storms they were still able to make paella. It paired perfectly with their fresh and flavorful calamari salad.
Always great food and atmosphere at Robust!
We ate out on the patio, which is actually in front of the restaurant. It was sunny when we first sat down, and the guy at the door went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The waiter was exceptionally nice and helpful as well. It was a beautiful evening and we enjoyed our sangria, good food and mellow music from the musician playing from 7 tlll 9. Spinach dip was excellent, as was the flatbread, and my husband enjoyed the steak wrap. Restaurant went out of their way to make sure tables were adequately spaced apart, and all employees wore masks. All-in-all a much-needed, enjoyable evening out at Robust in Webster.
Love Robust! We had a great “wine down” to our Fathers Day.
It was a very nice night on the patio. A combo played some tunes. Our wine was very good but the portions of the plates were small.
