Good wine and good food

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

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.

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 a more personal recommendation. But their approach has two... More

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...
