Robust Ratings and Reviews

I love this place! It gets crowded (because it is so good!) and all that customer traffic means everything's a little noisier, a tad slower. Worth any bother, though--the food is delicious every time, well-prepared, and well-presented! The wine pairings are good and the servers I've encountered there really seem to have a decent knowledge of wine and can discuss it meaningfully. The staff is always friendly and welcoming, from the front door to the back room. I consider it a little pricey yet I feel it was a good/very good value for weekend dining. The weekday pricing specials are a very good/excellent value.

Out food and wine were wonderful. Our server was very rude. We had a large party but the place was not crowded as it was a Tuesday night. I have always loved this place but would not want to come back and risk getting that same server. He was completely rude and short with our entire party as if we were a bother to him. He needs more training and customer service skills.

We did not enjoy our experience at Robust. Definitely won't be back for dinner. Possibly wine at the bar if someone asks us to meet there. Otherwise, no thanks. The host was more than pleasant and polite upon our arrival, unfortunately he was quickly interrupted and overpowered by our ridiculously rude waitress. She was inattentive and just plain rude from start to finish. We arrived a little before 5:30 and were one of about 3 or 4 tables in the whole place. However, we waited so long for everything that we didn't get to leave the place until 7:50! The food was nothing to go back for and specifically I was really disappointed when I ordered Robust Chowder with "rock shrimp" and it was served to me with AN overcooked Baby Cocktail Shrimp. That's false advertisement and not what we paid for....The place was a joke in my opinion

We were pleasantly surprised. Robust is in a strip mall which is an iffy proposition in itself, but the dining experience far exceeded our expectations. They have an excellent wine list, feature local sources, and provide very good value. Next time we are in St. Louis we will return.

Food and drinks were fine... Nothing special. The servers were nice, but the hostess was rude and acted annoyed because we didn't want to sit at the bar to eat. They were busy and possibly overbooked(?). I would go back for a drink, probably wouldn't do the whole reservation/dinner again.

I had made a reservation more than a week ahead of our dinner for 5 people. We ended up at a table for 4 with a chair stuck at the end of the table. Our server seemed more concerned with setting up a larger table than taking care of us. Wine was very good. Food was good but overpriced.

Robust Wine Bar in Webster is a great place for dinner. Nicely prepared and presented dishes expertly paired with wine suggestions from very good wait-staff. Good selection of small sharable plates along with few substantial selections for a full dinner. Very good attentive but not smothering waitress kept the selections moving along. Save room for deserts. Convienient free parkeing nearby. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

Our server seemed not to care that we needed service. He was involved in a conversation at the bar. He was also drying glasses. I made eye contact with him, raised my hand and he nodded. He did not come to the table. My husband did the same thing with the same result. Finally, he came over and said he was involved in a conversation with someone at the bar that he couldn't get out of, no apology extended. From putting the menus and water glasses down, we had no contact with him for 20 minutes. What the heck.
That said, our food was delicious.

We both really enjoyed our dinner choices - I had the scallops and my husband had the chicken. Our server was filling in from the other location. It started off well but as dinner progressed, he was less attentive and someone else finally brought our check.
What a gem!
I took my girlfriend to Robust last Sunday evening and it was one of the best dining experiences we've had ever. We shared four plates - pate, salad, cheese and the scallops special, plus ordered a flight of 3 wines (Prosecco, Malbec and a Falanghina). Every single food item was prepared/presented expertly and was delicious in its own way. I don't know if I've ever had better scallops. We loved the wines so much we ended up buying a bottle of each to take with us. We will definitely go back and try some new things. Jenny C, who served us is very knowledgeable and helpful with the wine selection and is a delightful person. Full marks all around!

Very disappointed ...the service was the worst... This used to be a favorite 'Go To' but lately the food, staff and general ambiance is far lacking.... I anticipated that the Mission Taco food truck collaboration would be a hit, but it was a complete miss.... The service was horrible, the drinks were 1/2 the size and cost double.. Food was fair at best and not up to the quality it had been 1-2 years ago... Once again disappointed ....
My first time visiting Robust . I enjoyed the Pear 75 and the Chef's Cheese sampler and Chef's Charcuterie Sampler, they're both a must!!!! We had a fabulous waiter, Joshua!!!! The Brick Chicken and The Sirloin Steak need work, neither was seasoned appropriately and the value just doesn't add up. I had a couple drinks and the bartender wasn't that great at making cocktails. I would say the food and drinks were very hit and miss. I would definately recommend the apple cobbler and salted caramel pot de creme as dessert options. This is a nice spot for indoor/outdoor dining. I would definately return to try other items and hangout. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

I believe our servers name was Hannah. She was completely amazing! Left us alone when we needed it and also was able to recommend great choices in wine and food. We had a great experience and can't wait to return!!!!
Friends, Great wines and wonderful food
A group of women met at Robust to reconnect and just catch up. We had terrific service including help in selecting wines that exceeded our expectations. The food was perfectly portioned and delicious. The ambiance was relaxed and yet we felt like we were "out on the town". Can't say enough good things about this lovely neighborhood wine bar and restaurant.
