My husband and I frequent here. We love their large selection of wine and the cheese and charcuterie boards are the perfect accompaniment. We usually sit at the bar and it can get quite busy at dinner time, especially on the weekends. Everyone that works here is very friendly and knowledgable about the wine list. Highly recommended

Tried this place for lunch based on a friend's recommendation. The food was prepared well and the atmosphere was very nice. The Corn Chowder with shrimp was excellent; just the right amount of spice followed by a pleasant slow burn, similar to good Cajun food. The Carpaccio was very tasty and the pepper flavor of the arugula went well with... More

Robust has been in top 10 for us for many years with their food and wine. Now offering full bar with excellent Manhattans! Wine descriptions still surpass all other places with quirky named categories that make selecting your wine a breeze. Servers always knowledgable about wine and food preparation. If you like a wine, most likely can find in in... More

Robust never fails to impress! Usually the place fills up between matinee and evening performances at the Repertory Theatre on Saturday night but last night was an exception. We were quickly seated and enjoyed their extensive wine list, this time choosing a white from Sicily and a Nobilo from Lombardy. The service was friendly and efficient and the ambiance of... More

We went with another couple, all of us had the prix fix menu, and all of us were pleased. Shrimp and grits had great reviews from 2 people, as did the salmon. Desserts were very good too. Portions are nice size, but not overwhelming. Wine flights are a great way to try several wines.

The menu is great and the lunch prices are amazing, especially for the food you get! The BBLT and the crabcake sandwich are my favorites. Awesome wine selection. Staff is amazing. Atmosphere is exactly what you would want from a wine bar.

This has become a neighborhood place for us. They offer a lot of wines by the glass and many different kinds of wine flights. The portions are more refined than typical St. Louis giant dinners which allows trying a variety of different things. One of my favorites is the pork duo, roasted pork belly and the shrimp and grits is... More

Never new it existed and my friend "Mende" gave me a gift certificate. This was a wonderful gift and what an enjoyable place to dine. This was like visiting a "Cabaret" in Europe. There was a talented duet performing on Thursday evening, playing relaxing music. The food was very good, and the crowd was festive. I had a difficult time... More

Over the years, we've eaten at Robust before going to the theater. Last night will be our final visit. No complaints about the waiter, but the drinks were watered down (never knew water was a prime ingredient for an Old Fashion), the Vodka Martini w/Blue Cheese olives was served w/o the olives because they were still being stuffed, they were...
