I have eaten at Robata several times over the past several years and always enjoyed it. On my recent visit, however, I was actually put off by the tuna and salmon sashimi. They both tasted old, which just is not acceptable when you're eating raw fish. I filled up on spinach salad with sesame and left most of the fish... More

This is right on the mark for a great Lunch Special. Dinner too. All the classic Japanese-American dishes are done all right here. It's not classic Japanese Sushi or Food. But in a General American Japanese sense this is right on the money. Robata is mailnly about Grilled Food, but their menu covers everything.

The Robata has been in business for years and I recall when they had their first sushi eating contest! The owner is still there - a little grey around the temples - but so am I ! Our family has eaten there so many times I cannot recall our visits. On many occasions when one of us is flying to... More

I've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. It's located along the Highway 101 in a business park, so you might have to look for it. They offer a menu with two choices of entrees. I had beef terr. plate and shashimi (yellow-tailed tuna), my favorite sushi dish. Service is good and the atmosphere is what you should... More

The food here is fantastic -- so is the sake! Was staying at the Acqua Hotel a few steps away, and this was closest restaurant - what a find! The sashimi was beautiful and perfectly presented. I could've eaten here for every meal, every day of my stay!

I ordered the new York and it was divine. The grated ginger they serve with it was unbelievable! I also ordered some hand rolls and they were probably some of the best I have had. The service could have been better but the food is great and I am definitely going back next time I am in town!

Pretty basic Sushi Restaurant which is what we wanted. We went here because it looked like it would have plenty of close parking, which it does, that can be a problem in Mill Valley. The people here were very nice and the restaurant was about half full, only a couple at the ample Sushi Bar. Basic Sushi menu with some... More

I know it's not the best sushi in the world. I know that. Let's move past that. The more I go here, the more I love it. Friendly staff, a large enough dining room that you rarely wait if you need to go last minute. The sushi bar area is awesome... we love to sit there and watch the guys... More
