Booked for four at restaurant. Food was excellant as expected from this establishment. Would have given a 5 star had waiter not forgotten to bring my wine glass and a coffee for my friend.

Been going to Robbies for over 25 years now and never been disappointed. We particularly love their lasagna. This time I ordered a martini for a change I could not believe how small the olives were and they had pits too they should change the recipe and get queensize olives - please! They changed the recipe for the French Onion... More

We were in the neighborhood shopping when my wife suggesting giving Robbie's a try. We didn't have a reservation, but they were able to get us in since we arrived earlier in the evening. Tamara looked after us and overall service was good. We had a Robbie's special along with the chicken cacciatore. Both dishes were tasty and we enjoyed... More

I'm not a person who ever writes reviews but I just couldn't let this go. I used to love coming to this restaurant as my mother did. But I will most likely never return. The young female server was very friendly but it was a busy Saturday night and service slow (understandable). The appetizer plate had no thought put into... More
