Lovely night to sit outside and staff at host stand and bar were very helpful. Our waitress was great, but I think she just had too many tables. Had to ask for things throughout the night several times. Maybe due to the staffing shortage we keep hearing about.

We hadn’t eaten there since pre-pandemic, ( it’s about 30 minutes from our house) so it was wonderful to be back. Our server Terry was professional and personable, with a great appropriate sense of humor. He answered our questions about menu items and different wines and made a few suggestions. Everything we ordered was well prepared. Our favorite chowder is always on the menu, and a tomato and watermelon salad was new to us and delicious. Their wine list is amazing.

Robust has always been a great place for us. Wines are always fantastic. The small plate options are also great for grazing and ordering more. Service is always attentive and very helpful.

Our server was very courteous and helpful! We were disappointed in the small size of the menu, but we had kale salad (about 5-6 bites), and spinach artichoke dip, which we enjoyed.

I really like this place, the location is awesome and it’s a great setting especially when you are sitting outside. I think every food item we ordered I was a little underwhelmed. Next time we will probably just stick to wine and charcuterie and cheese plates. But service is good/friendly and great patio!

Enjoyed a variety of small dishes and salads—all excellent. Had a beautiful evening for outdoor dining, though partially diminished by cheap, uncomfortable plastic chairs. Waitress was knowledgeable, personable and super helpful. Unfortunately she was stretched too thin so even though Robust says that 2 people only get 90 minutes to finish and leave, it took 30 minutes for us to obtain our first drink. It took 2 hours to complete our meal and pay based upon short staffing, though it was very enjoyable overall and no one made us feel pressured about time. We will return!

We enjoyed the Chef's Choice Charcuterie board, the Shrimp Perloo, and the Sea Bass, all delicious. The very best part was that we were not rushed, and our waiter did not bring out the courses too quickly. Wine was wonderful!

We enjoyed the wine flights, but we're disappointed that we did not discover a new favorite.. still we know our wines and it is rare that we stumble across something new and noteworthy. Do not order the meatball appetizer.absolutly aweful . Bare could usebag hooks and some music to entice us to stay longer

We had a fabulous experience at Robust in Webster. My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and also brought out 4 month old daughter along! Atmosphere was energetic and noise level was actually perfect for having a baby with us. Our server was super knowledgeable and very friendly. We can’t wait to go back!

The menu is smaller but the food is always good. however being seated in the adjacent building (that is basically an empty shell with no decor) felt like we were being punished for something. There were no other patrons in the building and it was very blah. If we are going to drop $200 on dinner and drinks I would like to be in an actual restaurant not a storage room.

The food was really nice but the Brie was outstanding! We chose to sit outside on a very warm and humid evening. We might have lingered a bit to enjoy the band if the heat hadn’t gotten to us.

The service from Remy and Eric was above and beyond. Their winre recommendation was spot on - we asked for "a steal" and we got one - a great wine at a very reasonable price (Not telling - you will have to find out from them). We were planning to have a second bottle of a different wine, but we were so pleased with the first suggestion that we stayed with the same wine for another bottle. Our approach is pairing in reverse from the conventional approach; that is, we select the wine and then choose food to accompany it. We were given excellent suggestions by Remy and Eric for the food selections to accompany the wine. The one-on-one conversations that we had with both of them throughout the evening made our visit especially memorable. All in all, our positive experience has dislodged our allegiance to a previously favorite venue; my friend and I left exchanging comments about "our new favorite place". Oh, did I mention that we plan to be back?
