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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
