This unique restaurant might be called a wine bar plus restaurant, but the food stands on its own. Yes, the wine selection if vast, in the hundreds if not thousands. bit the menu is extensive as well. Several evening special events are involved and the facility is sometimes crowded. Outside dining weather permitting. We were there for lunch and ordered... More

The menu is lean and unimpressive. The wine list is exceptional. I have struggled to find something on the menu that is enough to share. Portion size is small. The cheeses were good. If your going for wine and cheese or to meet for drinks then this is your place. Otherwise keep walking.

I hate to even write a review as this is such a simple wine bar where you order a cheese platter with a glass of wine and call it a night, but I have to because I was looking forward to a Friday night (tonight) dinner with actual entree and appetizer and a bottle of wine, you know a Friday...

A friend and I were looking for somewhere a bit different for lunch recently, and I googled restaurants in Webster Groves. I had been to Robust for dinner, but hadn't even thought of it for lunch. As it was a beautiful day, we chose to sit outside. Glancing at the menu, we were delighted to find a nice selection of... More

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.
