Interesting, relax dinner

Robust is interesting. A little wine shop and little café. We enjoyed a relaxed dinner and wine. Wine flight was a nice option along with a cheese plate and both were enjoyable. Food was ok. Beef entrée was a little tough and grits in Shrimp and grits didn't me expectations. However, we would... read more

Robust is interesting. A little wine shop and little café. We enjoyed a relaxed dinner and wine. Wine flight was a nice option along with a cheese plate and both were enjoyable. Food was ok. Beef entrée was a little tough and grits in Shrimp and grits didn't me expectations. However, we would probably try Robust again.

My fiancee and I love this place, It features small plates and a great wine list.The spinach and artichoke dip is the best i ever tasted, we also like the meatballs and any of the flat breads, I'm glad to see they added a Zinfandel to their wine flight offerings, but recommended they add Dry Creek and Alexander valley origins...

Went for lunch w/a friend and the Figgy Piggy Flatbread was just FANTASTIC! My friend was also very happy with her salad. Both came from kitchen promptly. Server was very helpful in choosing a wine & let us have a sample taste. Desserts were outta sight delicious---just wish I remembered what we both had! My only "complaint" (more like a... More

The wine selection was fantastic. It was just the place my fiancé and were looking for to share a bite while wiling away our time over a glass. Will come back.

My wife and I had lunch for the first time at Robust. We were trying it out to see if it would work for a going away party for a friend. We picked a table outside since it was a pleasant summer day. there was sufficient shade and although it was close to a busy street, the traffic was overly... More

We went to Robust for tapas but I ended up ordering the prix fixe dinner. Caesar salad wasn't anything special BUT my shrimp & grits was out of this world. The dessert was a chocolate mousse with pretzel crust and it was delicious. I just did a normal glass of wine. Others did the wind flight. It can be pricey... More

The wine choices are fantastic and the food choices are also excellent here, the only catch is that if you don't get the concept, small plates to share, and go for dinner you could spend a LOT!

This was a great addition to the Webster dining scene from the very beginning. I've really never had anything I didn't like. The Gumbo comes out slightly different each time but always good. The pizza/ flatbreads are always good and unusual. Recently I had a rare 'big meal' - an elegant chicken preparation - but it still wasn't huge, Everything... More

My fiancée and I stopped by Robust after the Saturday Afternoon matinee at the Repertory Theatre. We didn't have reservations but the bar was open and unlike others was relatively easy to eat from > We had the spinach & artichoke dip which was the best we ever had. You could taste the fresh spinach, the artichokes were well done... More

Robust Great selection of wines by the glass; one of the best I've seen in the area. Husband had the Shooting Star Blaufränkisch--not a sweet rosé but the soft red--and I had a good Italian white whose name escapes me. Perfect accompaniments to our chicken BBQ and mushroom flatbreads. A bit pricey, but good selection and quality for the price.... More
