We love this place. The entrees are good but the three of us enjoyed a meal of sharables: crab cakes, meatballs, spinach-artichoke dip, salad followed by coffee and the dessert of the day. In several cases our wonderful server influenced our choices by telling us honestly about the offerings. The best was each of us enjoying a delicious glass or two of the wine of our choice. The wine list is superb and the glass price is about half that of most local restaurants.

Fantastic place to celebrate a birthday if you have a group willing to taste a little of this and a little of that. Wine flights were fun albeit it a little pricey. My only criticism was the table was a very tight fit. We constantly feared tipping over one of the sixteen glasses squeezed in along with the food. (4 wine flights plus 4 waters...) Next time I will request the flights be delivered in stages...

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.

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.

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!

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.
