Came on my grandson's birthday, early Saturday evening, without a reservation. They found us table for 5 quickly. The waitress was very friendly. Service great. Foot great. Canneloni, veal piccata, shrimp pizza, seafood pasta. Yum. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

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

My husband and I went to Robbie's in Nov for a dinner after an early movie. We were both a bit disappointed with the meal, it was just so so. Salad at the start was fresh and tasty but the main pasta dishes were too heavily spiced, sauce too thick and overpowered with garlic. On the good side, service was... More

No flavour at all, my lasagna was overcooked noodles with absolutely nothing betwwen the layers,with what I am sure is canned sauce and some cheese thrown on... 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

We visited Robbie's after our parents booked it for a family dinner, and although it looks like more of a formal location, they were happy to provide a high chair for our son. Staff were friendly, and we enjoyed the nice fire pit in the middle of the room - a nice visual piece. Food came fairly quickly, and the... More

A group of friends met at Robbie's for a Saturday lunch. We were seated promptly by a courteous, competent young lady. The food was wonderful. The lasagna was a very generous portion. The soup and salads were fresh and delicious. The reason I am not giving Robbie's a 5 star rating is because we waited a very long time before... More

We usually have a delicious dinner at Robbie's but tonight was terribly disappointing. The service was definitely substandard. Our server was friendly enough but her serving skills were pitiful. When she took our order, she suggested a salad which we decided to split one between the two of us. Next she is bringing us our main course, asked her about... More
