Enjoyable Dinner

Tempura plate was really good, comparable to any I've eaten in Japan. Wife had Korean Short Ribs and was very happy with quality and quantity. A pleasant dinner with my Brother and Sister in Law who live "up the hill".

Had a late night meal at Robata and it was good! The ambiance was good, the place was packed and the service was nice.

Despite the fact that the place was busy - slight delay in seating at 8pm on a Monday night!), Robata didn't work for us at all. We found all the food relatively tasteless and uninteresting - we had the recommended dinner menu. The Salmon Teriyaki and Shrimp Tempura were both overcooked. The salads were the best feature!

this sushi spot was just a short walk from our hotel. We at first thought of it as a small place, but i is quite big with over a dozen tables and a huge sushi bar. We came early and the place filled up fast. I had the chef's choice Sashimi and my wife opted for the grilled teriyaki chicken.... More

Way more of a traditional place... not so many rolls with mayo. excellent sashimi and hamachi! The unaten is great, shrimp tempura wrapped in rice topped with unagi and some tasty sauce. Ask for Fred and tell him Edward sent you... he is one of the owners and GREAT guy!

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
