The garden is nice and the music was fabulous but the food was less then average if not priced well- two for one night and full of retirees . More like moms cooking, over cooked veggies, pasty sauce and cool rice. We won't be going back.

Roberto's is a fabulous place to eat. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The food is excellent, and the presentation is amazing. The deserts are very decadent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our food was a disaster and the service unfriendly, we will not be returning. Our friends had already told us about the place but we wanted to do it to find out if there were other options but we were wrong

Roberto's is a lovely spot with great food and service! A few friends for an impromptu lunch, or a group of 8-10 ladies with a few husband's at a different table across the restaurant. They provide great service with separate checks for each of us (there were 8 at lunch today), and regular refills on all beverages. I had fish... More

Not impressed. Slow service with average food made this stop a one and done. Had the Chinese ?? Special. Cold and unappealing. The drinks were abundant which was the only saving grace.

We regularly go to Robertos several times a week either for lunch and dinner. The food is consistently good and well-seasoned. The owner is always welcoming and accommodating-checking to see if the food is up to par. We love the ambiance. One of my favorite dishes are the fried oysters. The oysters are always very fresh and fried to perfection.... More

We've eaten there several times and found the food, service and ambiance delightful. The live music was entertaining. Although, the dance floor was a bit restrictive.

This restaurant has a good feeling and delicious food. We ate here three times and were pleased with each meal. At the time they were offering buy one get one free specials which included small appetizer, soup, entree and dessert if you dined before 5:00 pm. Check to see if it is particular days. The food was delicious, with lots... More

The food was just OK, nothing special. The presentation of the food was poor and the service was atrocious. I had to go back to the kitchen to try and find our waiter so we could pay the bill. We wouldn't go back.

Six of us ate here Sunday night. Our selections were the tilapia, the sea bass, the chicken curry, liver and onions, roast pork and one of the Sunday Chinese specials. Everyone was very satisfied with their meals. Our waiter, Eli, spoke perfect English and was courteous and attentive. We will be back very soon!
