This Place was "Exceptional"!

Never new it existed and my friend "Mende" gave me a gift certificate. This was a wonderful gift and what an enjoyable place to dine. This was like visiting a "Cabaret" in Europe. There was a talented duet performing on Thursday evening, playing relaxing music. The food was very good, and... read more

The menu is great and the lunch prices are amazing, especially for the food you get! The BBLT and the crabcake sandwich are my favorites. Awesome wine selection. Staff is amazing. Atmosphere is exactly what you would want from a wine bar.

This has become a neighborhood place for us. They offer a lot of wines by the glass and many different kinds of wine flights. The portions are more refined than typical St. Louis giant dinners which allows trying a variety of different things. One of my favorites is the pork duo, roasted pork belly and the shrimp and grits is... More

Over the years, we've eaten at Robust before going to the theater. Last night will be our final visit. No complaints about the waiter, but the drinks were watered down (never knew water was a prime ingredient for an Old Fashion), the Vodka Martini w/Blue Cheese olives was served w/o the olives because they were still being stuffed, they were...

Have been here many times and usually have no complaints. The wine selection is always excellent, as is the food....but this time I just have to say something. We were in town for the Jazz festival and decided to stop in because Robust is one of our favorites. We ordered s bottle of wine with little help from our server,... More

This was a business meeting and this place was a good fit. They have a back room if you have a large party as well. The wine, cheese, crab cakes, and all the food was good. We had very good service and I would go back

My wife wanted to go here for her birthday dinner. There were 12 of us, and they did a great job of making sure our reservation was correct. The service was also pretty good, considering the amount of people we had. They have an extensive wine list, as well as a decent selection of beer. As far as food goes--... More

Four of us had dinner on a recent Saturday night. We arrived at 6:30 pm and our table was ready. For the entire evening the food and service were outstanding. For the first course we had a mix of drinks - a couple of beers, a wine flight, a cocktail - and three plates, the cheese plate, the charcuterie plate,... More

My spouse and I have dined at Robust many times - the food is pricey, but it has been consistently terrific. The menu has interesting cocktails and A LOT of wines by the glass. The restaurant's schtick is that their food and wines are number coded to help diners with food-wine pairings - not necessary for most knowledgeable wine drinkers,... 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
