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

We stopped in here to check the place out after seeing it online. They had a very extensive wine list but the server was well-educated in the area to narrow down selections for us. We ordered the spinach artichoke dip (which was delicious!) and split a yummy French dip. This is a very nice locale to grab a bite!

Nice wine list, nice menu, and service but unfortunately preparation was rather uninspired. The chicken flatbread looked good when it came out but the chicken tasted "old". Should have sent it back but pressed for time. Small plates, so portions appropriate and what was ordered arrived at the table as appropriate. . Lots of alcohol to patrons so food prep... More

The wine flights, charcuterie board and cheese samplers were great. It was a good opportunity for our 5 year old granddaughter to experiment with foods she may not normally try. We tried a number of sharing plates with the only disappointment being the Wellington special which was long on pastry but very light on protein. The apple crisp dessert was... More

Went on a Sunday evening - very light crowd, which we enjoyed. Food, wine, service - all top notch! We ordered two meat plates, a couple of salads, and a couple of tasting dishes - and were wowed by all of them. The best shrimp and grits outside of New Orleans, hands down. We also tried the wine flights (three... More
