We feel Robust has declined over the years. It's good but not great.
Great food, great wine, great service! Highly recommended!
we enjoyed our visit to Robust last week. They have 40 wines by the glass plus several wine flights which makes wine choosing difficult but fun. Their menu is mostly small plates with a couple small-ish full size entrees. Focus on interesting cheeses. Very good.
We had excellent service and the food and wine was quite good.
Our server was simply okay. Some might think she did a good job, coming to our table every few minutes to see if we were ready to order when we told her we were chatting away. I felt I paid a lot for what I had in food and beverage. I've had had better experiences at Robust in the past.
The service was great, and the wine flights are a great way to try different wines.
I decided on one of the nightly specials, which was a small roasted chicken over diced veggies with a light pan gravy over. It was perfection! Usually we do flights of red wine, but this time we shared a bottle of Siduri Russian River, one of my favorites . Our server was very knowledgeable about the various wines. Can’t wait to return!
Enjoyed Happy Hour. Shared the Winter Squash Salad, Wild Mushroom Bruschetta and a tasty flatbread.
Food way overpriced for what you get. Our waitress was only interested in selling us the special menu which was all expensive items. Will not return to Robust.
Excellent service and food.
Great food, not so great service, a good alternative to prix fixe menu to pay for less much food at a better price
lovely Valentine's day dinner experience. The lobster bisque should be on the menu all the time.
We went for an early Valentines Day celebration and were not disappointed. Excellent wine and excellent food combined with excellent service. A win all the way around.
Anniversary dinner. Melissa was very nice!
Leah was fantastic and the food was wonderful!
We had a wonderful time at Robust. The wine is great but so are the cocktails. The food was awesome and the wait team were wonderful. We had a group of 15 and they accommodated us all very well. Worth going for any occasion!
Great meal and wine selection, Enjoyed having Joshua as our waiter, again, and suggesting several dinner items and the wine.
A very upbeat place with a nice ambiance and friendly, attentive wait staff. Good wine list, the menu carrries a pleasing variety of choices and the items we selected were very good.
We arrived at 6:15pm to eat and go to a Rep play. It was quiet when we arrived. "Energetic" was a nice word for the noise level when we left at 7:30. The food and service were supurb. The onion soup was delicious, as was the beet salad. Salmon was cooked interestingly and properly-not raw but not too cooked and dry. Two of us shared these dishes and had more than enough. The wine choices were wide enough for almost any taste. There were enough single malt scotch choices to satisfy most scotch drinkers. Coffee was fresh and strong and the pot de creme (salted caramel) was delicious but a little rich with all the whipped cream on top. Service was prompt, friendly and courteous. The staff seems to cooperate nicely with each other. A satisfying experience and we will return when we can be a bit more leisurely.
Lighting was way too dark to see the menu.
We enjoyed two new flights, one from Maysara, an Oregon winery we visited in 2016, and one featuring three Syrah’s. Food was very good as usual - chowder, flatbread, & roasted cauliflower. Service was outstanding.
Always good food and service! My brother treated me to lunch for my birthday, it was his first time here and he was impressed also!
A great place to share and enjoy wine. Really enjoyed our flights and recommendations. The duck bacon was great for me and the trout with crab was very tasty. Awesome chocolate mousse dessert with plenty to share.
It was very pleasant, the service was outstanding, the wine flight was very good, the food was as. It always is ....outstanding. Love Robust.
A great intimate atmosphere with great wine flights and creative dishes. Live music on Thursday’s. A real must!
Outstanding experience at Robust. It was our first time visiting. The wine flights are wonderful way to experience variety of wines for little cost. Wait staff super attentive and friendly. Great menu options. The cauliflower and French onion soup were standouts on this winter evening.
Went there after a play at Webster University. Was not crowed after the play. Was seated immediately and service was good. Shared plates were good and so were the drinks. Great place for conversation and shared food.
Great guidance from waitress on both food and wine.
Robust is one of our local favorites as we love the atmosphere and tasty food! This visit was enhanced by a lovely corner table, a delightful guitar player/singer, and awesome service by our waiter, Kip. We savored glasses of our favorite Pinot Gris, roasted
cauliflower, delicious roast chicken entrees and a salted caramel custard dessert. We will be going back soon and often!
My husband found his steak to be tasteless. Mty trout was fine good.
Excellent food and a great wine selection. Be sure to try a wine flight, or make your own with the small pours. It can be a bit pricey as the small plates can add up.
Post-theater date with my husband. We arrived a bit early and were seated immediately. Nice service. Very good food choices. We each selected different wine flights.
I ordered decaf coffee with my dessert but the coffee arrived cold. The server was apologetic and quickly had a fresh pot made and replacement fresh cup to my table.
We had a party of 4. Leah was very attentive and engaging. The food was excellent. Will go back soon.
This was the first time we had been to Robust for dinner. We have been for lunch and stopped in for a drink. We had a wonderful meal with great service! The place was crowded, so glad we made a reservation. Table was ready for us and we could not have asked for a better meal. We will be back!
Fantastic server - Kip. Great wine flights and food. An all-around great experience.
The ambiance is great at Robust and on Wednesday’s they have 15% off flights which is advertised in their menu! My whole group ordered flights and they were amazing until the waitress didn’t give us the discount and then acted like it wasn’t a thing until we showed it to her in the menu. It was a big deal to have her redo the ticket so she didn’t. Only critique of the evening was that the waitress should know the evening specials and be extra willing to correct the bill when she doesn’t!
Birthday dinner. Obviously not a romantic place, but after 70 years, who cares. The very best part of the dinner was Kip, our waiter. Pleasant, knowledgeable and with just the right amount of attention. We tried a couple wines, had wine with dinner and on his recommendation, bought a couple bottles to take home. Dinner was great, particularly the beet salad and onion soup.
We dined after The Rep, so the restaurant was quiet.b Trout was perfectly prepared. Carmilized Cauliflower was delicious. Will definitely return.
Everything about this place was satisfying. Don’t miss Staub’s gourmet grocery next door on your way to or from Robust.
Food was great, waitress made sure we met our time schedule and always great wine selection!
