This restaurant is located inside the Embassy Suites hotel near the convention center, and we had a client event here in their private space. Service was very attentive, and we had vegetarians and wheat allergies at the table, which were accommodated very easily. Food was tasty as well. The area where we had passed appetizers was a little cozy (read:... More

I went here on the recommendation of the Marriott Grand desk clerk, it was only a block away. At first gland it seemed quite nice, good ambience, a bit of character in the design. Server was friendly, although swamped. No complaints on the wine, however, the dinner was less than expected. Cold upon arrival, the Steak Frites was unimpressive. Cold... More

Really enjoyed it. The food was a good mix of options, and the wine list was fantastic. Important to me, the vibe was friendly and welcoming on top of being tasty.

Had a pretty good pork belly with succotash veggies. Paired it with one of Germany's oldest beers. You'll have to go to find out. This place is attached to Embassy Suites downtown.

We went to Robust for dinner late on a Friday evening after arriving in town and ordered the Figgy Piggy flatbread, Baked Camembert, Bresaola Carpaccio Style, and Delice de Bourgogne, France, as well as wine & a few mixed drinks. We loved the tapas style plates, which allowed us to try several items on the menu. Everything was absolutely delicious;... More

Good mix of salads and sandwiches for lunch, executed as expected. Family of five had a full lunch (no alcohol) for $85 all in.

Robust is right next to the hotel I was staying at so I tried it for convenience initially, but ended up going back again and again while I stayed in SL. Loved the atmosphere- awesome wine selection- fantastic service. Had several meals there as well with the "Figgy Piggy" flatbread being my favorite! Love this place!

If you are looking for a nice business dinner ambiance, this would be it. There are not many modifications that can be made to the dinners so if you have food allergies,might not be your place. Our group had a mix of food allergies and vegans, so it was difficult for us to find food for everyone. Lots of wine... More
