Nice Spot for a Drink and Light Meal with Friends!

The room can be crowded and noisy, but the service is always solicitous and accommodating. Nice approach to the menu - various offerings at different sizes, so one can eat well without over-indulging. I have a mixed opinion about the "Garanimal" approach to matching wines and food - I might prefer... read more

We came as a group of friends for dinner the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. We waited 20 minutes for drinks, 45 minutes for apps and another 20 for dinner plates that were cold and disappointing. We were starving and left very disappointed with the service and quality of the food. The waitress kept reiteraring she was new. In my... More

Lots of single cheese servings, soup and other small plates. We were disappointed in the charcuterie sampler. Pork pate was tasteless (no herbs?), dry sourdough without sour taste. Figgy piggy flatbread was pretty good with nice cubes of fresh apple but very little blue cheese. Caesar salad was adequate.

Went to robust after the rep studio. Place was packed so it was good that we had made a reservation and we were seated immediately. Our server Katie was very knowledgable of the foods and wines they were having that evening. They have a good beer selection and an outstanding wine selection. As they are a tapas and wine flight...

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
