“Awesome”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Love love love the food. Came with my mom. We were feeling adventurous and were tired of eating burgers, Mexican, and Italian. The Nutella crepe was the best thing I've ever had. Would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

“Duck and Chicken Combo is worth the price”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I tried Rob's Bistro for the first time last Saturday. The food is excellent, and although it's not cheap, it is well worth the money. The Duck and Chicken combo is like $28, which sounds like a lot of money, but I would order it again anytime. The chicken was moist and juicy and had really great flavor. While the duck was a bit gamier, both were cooked really well. My companion tried the squash and artichoke pasta, which she really enjoyed. We ate every last bite, and the portions didn't leave us feeling overly full and bloated. Bring a bottle of wine, and the dinner for two comes out to like $50. Not bad at all for the quality.

“First time visitors, very impressed!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Four of us experienced foodies went there for dinner last night for our first time and were very impressed! It's not been often that I can say I've eaten anywhere and was impressed with every single item consumed, but that was the case for all four of us at Rob's. Their roasted beet salad was the best I've ever had. The mussels and frites, fantastic. The desserts and coffees, the best.

And when you consider BYOB on top of the exceptional food and service, we all said we will be back!

“First time there, would go back”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

New in town. Stopped in and got a table. Very busy.

The prime rib was god, but a little fatty. That is to be expected though. Seasoning was good.

The wife had the salmon which she liked a lot. We were too full for desert. Wine list was small, but ok.

It was a bit pricey, at about 100 for a couple, including wine.

I would go back.

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

After reading the other reviews, we were surprised how ordinary our dinner was. While the duck breast and risotto were very good, the prime rib was fatty and very salty - not the prime rib experience we were looking for. The white chocolate suffle also disappointed us with its lack of flavor. Even the cookies they give with the bill were bland.
