We had been here before when it was owned by former owner. The chef may be the same but the taste and quality of the food was much better. Very nice selection on the menu. Homemade desserts were excellent. Opened until 9pm except for Monday and Tuesday. Good to know because we will be back.

Only managed one visit this year but the food, service and value didn't disappoint. Love the courtyard setting and the 2 for 1 nights.

A group of us decided to give Robertos another try after we heard that new owners had taken over. The food was poor at best. Our vegetables were cooked to the point that the color was gone. The presentation was sloppy and the food was overflowing the plates. Several plates were badly chipped and the fabric covered chairs and cushions... More

The garden is nice and the music was fabulous but the food was less then average if not priced well- two for one night and full of retirees . More like moms cooking, over cooked veggies, pasty sauce and cool rice. We won't be going back.

Roberto's is a fabulous place to eat. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The food is excellent, and the presentation is amazing. The deserts are very decadent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our food was a disaster and the service unfriendly, we will not be returning. Our friends had already told us about the place but we wanted to do it to find out if there were other options but we were wrong

Roberto's is a lovely spot with great food and service! A few friends for an impromptu lunch, or a group of 8-10 ladies with a few husband's at a different table across the restaurant. They provide great service with separate checks for each of us (there were 8 at lunch today), and regular refills on all beverages. I had fish... More

Not impressed. Slow service with average food made this stop a one and done. Had the Chinese ?? Special. Cold and unappealing. The drinks were abundant which was the only saving grace.

We regularly go to Robertos several times a week either for lunch and dinner. The food is consistently good and well-seasoned. The owner is always welcoming and accommodating-checking to see if the food is up to par. We love the ambiance. One of my favorite dishes are the fried oysters. The oysters are always very fresh and fried to perfection.... More

We've eaten there several times and found the food, service and ambiance delightful. The live music was entertaining. Although, the dance floor was a bit restrictive.
